Different than the standard 20-cent line
, the "dime line" is sometimes offered in baseball by player friendly sportsbooks
. The dime line charges only half the juice
of standard football/basketball bets
. A -200 favorite
would usually make the underdog
+180 on a 20-cent line, but with the "dime line" the underdog would be +190.
Also Known As: 10-cent line
Doc likes betting on baseball because he can make an extra $10 on his underdog winners for every $100 he wagers
with the dime line.
