A 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

Unless it's something like an over41/under39 bet or something to that effect. I've never seen a skinny bookie driving a beat up car.

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.

I'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.
