In the world of bookmaking, balancing bets on both teams is crucial for profitability

Bookmakers aim to earn a 10% profit, known as the vig, by taking equal bets on both sides. Achieving this balance ensures they minimize risk and act as the house, avoiding losses on either team. The spread determines the margin of victory needed for bets to pay out; for example, if the Jets are favored by -5 points, they must win by 5 or more points. Bookmakers use strategies like "laying off" bets with other bookies to even out bets and mitigate risk, as seen in The Sopranos. Christopher's losses underscore the importance of focusing on earning the vig and balancing bets evenly.
