Actually, Vegas loves games where the line doesn't need to change much, if at all, and the $ comes in equally spread between the two teams. Vegas keeps their 10ish % and are happy. Vegas loses in the short run when they open a bad line and the $ comes in very unequally. When they need to shift the line to attract money on the light side, they expose themselves to an in between final score that can have them paying out lots of bets on both sides. In the longer run, when you get to keep 10% on the total action, you're going to win.Again - "Vegas" always winning has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with whoever “Vegas” thinks is going to win any individual game - especially when the spread in that game is 2 points. In fact, if you were so inclined, you could’ve made a lot of money betting against “Vegas” in 5 or 6 of our games last year.
Books LOVE when favorites lose, especially big ones. I guarantee you the guy running Caesars was rooting for Georgia Tech more than most people here.
