English term or phrase: to lay juice or (take the) vigorish
"A bet the odds of which are 1/1; a wager in which no vigorish or juice is laid."
When wagering on baseball you have the option to tilt the odds in your favour. You have the option to lay juice or take the vigorish. In other words, instead of laying down $150 to win $100, you can wager $100 to profit $140. The secret is not complicated. When betting on baseball never play a favourite under any circumstance regardless of who is pitching. If you play favourites in baseball, I guarantee you will lose.
