Quote:bigfoot66A certain casino in town is currently offering a prop bet at -110 on one side and +120 on the other. An I right that you can bet both sides of this and lock up an over 2% win?

a. 110 to win 100

b 100 to win 120

if a wins then you spent 210 to win 210

if b wins then you spent 210 to win 220

sounds like a win to me.

Wouldn't you be better off doing...

A. 110 to win 100

B. 95 to win 114

This way you profit regardless of the outcome.

Using a scalpulator, this is what I get:

A. (-110) risk 100 to win 90.90

B. (+120) risk 87 to win 104

Bet all your money;)Quote:EdgeLookerUsing a scalpulator, this is what I get:

has to be a mistake.

The South Point line for the first quarter of the Panthers game was under 7.5 for -110, over for +120. I took both sides.

Typically, 1st quarter lines are -115 on each side (total of -30 for vig) --- so obviously the book meant to post it as -110 and -120 and made an error -- nice job finding it.

Nice, how much did you get down? I would be worried in this situation that they would fix the line before I got the second bet down. I mean, you don't just walk up to the book and ask for both at the same time, do you?

If I was a sports book manager anything I seen a chick betting I would run over and see what she was up to. I would assume she was a runner.Quote:bigfoot66Not as much as I would have liked. A friend was there and actually did the betting for me so I am not sure how she did it. She may well have bet both at the same time!!!

Quote:anonimussI'm talking about a split line where the over is a higher number and the under is a lower number and the bookie wins both sides if the game middles. Looks like this wasn't one of those.

That's how it was on those old time football tickets back in the 80s. Or at least that's when I used to get them.

Example

Giants vs Redskins

Over 41.5

Under 39.5

Of course I was 9 years old, thrilled my mom was allowing me to partake in any sort of sports betting, and had no idea it was a ripoff.
