In this example, the casino tells us they think it's easier for the Jags to win five game or more.
So if you want to bet on the Jags to win 5 games or more, you have to wager $140 to win $100.
If the Jags win 5 or more, you take him $100.
If the Jags win 4 or less, you lose $140
They also want the bettors to think that's there's less of a chance for the Jags to win only 4 games at the most.
Here, you bet $100 for a possible pay out of $110.
If the Jags win 4 or fewer, you win $110
If the Jags win 5 or more, you lose $100
