For anybody who may be unfamiliar, an alternative line is a type of wager that allows bettors to take a different spread than originally offered at sportsbooks. Essentially, an alternative line is akin to buying points, but sportsbooks make it easier for bettors to buy or sell several points.
The New England Patriots are listed as 3-point favorites over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl 51, but what about bettors who think the Pats will win in a blowout? Instead of simply taking the favorite, bettors can take alternative lines with more lucrative payouts.
