- Spread (Sports, Games and Toys)
"Hey, M-m-mercer, you got a spread on this weekend's game?"
When used in the context of a sporting event, a "spread" (or "point spread") is simply the number of points "given" to equalize the chances of winning a wager. A Vegas-sanctioned handicap, if you will. Larry's stammering partner in crime may be easily mocked, but he'll have the last laugh when he's rolling in the winnings dubiously acquired through a manipulated sports-betting ring.
