I don't think it's a stupid question. Is there a "gambling for dummies" laying around?

There is another thread on this page about the money line, but I don't think those answers are correct. My understanding is that the negative number is how much money you have to lay down to win $100. The positive number is how much money you win if you lay down $100. Kind of confusing, but I think that is correct.

That is correct. BTW, that is the way it is calculated and explained. I merely use the math to describe the situation and go about it by figuring the bet as the baseline, not the moneyline.

Anything you bet on a negative moneyline is divided by the percentage of the money bet. For example -180 would be the line. You place a $1000.00 bet and win. You would win $1000.00/1.8 = $556.00. You then subtract 10% for the house $556.00 - $56.00 = $500.00

Anything you bet on a positive moneyline is multiplied by the percentage of the money bet. For example +150 would be the line. You place a $1000.00 bet and win. You would win $1000*1.5 = $1500.00. You then subtract 10% for the house $1500.00 - $150.00 = $1350.00

Oh and CGal - Yes he is stupid. I hate him because he gets to do the coolest job in the world - other than oiling down Swedish bikini models. Therefore, my jealousy blinds my rationale.
