In the most traditional sense the “line” is used in betting to level the playing field between the favorite and the underdog. The goal of every odds maker is to create a line that evens out the action placed on each side of the bet. If done effectively, the small percentage the odds makers charge when a bettor loses becomes guaranteed profit. This small percentage is referred to as the VIG. The goal of this blog is to take advantage of mathematical differences between the probability of an outcome occurring and the implied probability created by efficiently running a book. In doing so, we plan to CLIP THE VIG.
