- Bookies give it a spread because as somebody above said: how are they expecting to make money otherwise?

Imagine if the odds were even. In your case you could bet even amounts on both opponents and get all of your money back just to waste their time (unless it was a draw). What would be the point of that?

Remember the main point of a business and consider finishing high school and/or take some basic Math/Statistics night course classes.
