A -3 spread is a gambling term used in spread betting. A team with a positive number - ie. Team is favored to "win by 3 points" (+3) is considered the favorite, while a team with a negative number, -3 for example, is the underdog and is predicted to lose by 3 points.

Does the value of the standard deviation depend on the value of the mean?

The standard deviation is a measure of the spread of data about the mean. Although it is essentially a measure of the spread, the fact that it is the spread ABOUT THE MEAN that is being measured means that it does depend on the value of the mean. However, the SD is not affected by a translation of the data. What that means is that if I add any fixed number to each data point, the mean will increase by that number, but the SD will be unchanged.

Can a standard deviation be less than 1?

Yes. Standard deviation depends entirely upon the distribution; it is a measure of how spread out it is (ie how far from the mean "on average" the data is): the larger it is the more spread out it is, the smaller the less spread out. If every data point was the mean, the standard deviation would be zero!
