So, what does reduced juice refer to?
Reduced juice sportsbooks offer users wagering markets at a cheaper cost than the traditional -110 lines. For active players, this benefit can lead to massive savings over the long-term, and functions as a long-standing bonus of sorts. As a result, reduced juice betting sites normally do not offer large sign-up or reload bonuses, and may have higher transaction fees.
Wagering at a reduced juice sportsbook means that players are treated to an instant discount on their wager.s Take the following as a practical example:
- At -110 odds, player A bets $110 to win $100. Full vig
- At -107 odds, player A bets $107 to win $100. Discount: 30%
- At -105 odds, player A bets $105 to win $100. Discount: 50%
Players should also take note of what has been a common practice in the reduced juice market: Juice Manipulation. While a 10 cent line may spell less commission for the sportsbook, it does not necessarily mean a better price for the player on a given event, as shown in the examples below:
- 10 cent line (-105/-105) + Juice Manipulation = -124/+114
- 14 cent line (-107/-107) + Juice Manipulation = -124/+110
A typical line for any given event may look like this:
- Team A: -7 -110
- Team B: +7 -110
After juice manipulation, the same wager will end up looking like one of the following examples:
- Team A: -7 -124
- Team B: +7 +114
- Team A: -7 -124
- Team B: +7 +110
It's important that players are aware of the differences between the traditional bookmaking models (-110) and the juice manipulation that happens in the market. Sportsbook Review believes that the reduced juice page is a very useful tool for all players, even those that prefer the traditional percentage based bonus model.
