– 2 team pays 2.6 to 1 Vegas odds
– 3 team pays 6 to 1 (some agents lower this to 5 to 1)

– 4 team pays 10 to 1 (Vegas odds are 12/1)
– 5 team pays 20 to 1 (Vegas odds are 24/1)
– 6 team pays 40 to 1 (Vegas odds are 48/1)

8) Raise your line offering price on quarters and halves. Example: 30 cents on halves and 40 cents on quarters.

10) Learn how to use the Agent Line Mover tool. This tool allows you to adjust any game on your board. This especially comes in handy when working with players that tend to wager on the local favorite, and you want to increase the spread or price, to keep your book positions as even as possible.
