Laying

Definition: "Laying odds" means the amount of money you are risking is more than what you will collect for winning. In such situations, the bettor believes the likelihood of his outcome is greater than 50%. "Laying points" means betting the point spread favorite. The opposite of laying is "taking" with the underdog.
 
Example: Jackson used to love laying the big price on Mike Tyson when he was in his prime.
