Question for many of the great cappers here on pregame. Reading between the lines, what does it mean when both teams have juice at -120? Why would a book do that? Thanks in advance.
Great question, Boise, I've often wondered that myself.
Weak lines and not comfortable laying -110. IE, 5Dimes on D2 or 3 games. High School, etc. Also, if they have some obscure bet they know only a true junkie would bet it and they could double bang them on juice.

At -110 on a side or total, they only have a 5% edge or so on the player. So if you are offering a line that could be weak, -120 doubles the house long term hold and allows them to gamble more.
Thanks Johnny for the reply. Completely makes sense. So how do YOU look at two teams juiced at -120. From what you stated earlier, it could be a red flag to a seasoned capper that they feel shaky about the line they just put out. Almost as if the book is showing weakness if spotted correctly.
unless you think the # is that bad you can lay -120.
