Understanding Vegas odds, over/under, and the point spread


Hello colts community, long time blue fan here. I've watched every single game since the 1998 afc championship game versus the Steelers with Jim Harbaugh as qb. We got robbed in that game.

anyways I have lots of colts knowledge but zero Vegas knowledge. could someone help me understand the Vegas lingo, such as odds, over under, and point spread. using the colts vs seahawks game or the upcoming Broncos vs Jags game as an example if necessary.

also how can someone win when they bet for they team Vegas predicts to win? by beating the point spread?

thanks,

- Scott
