bookmaking

Mathematics of bookmaking
“In gambling parlance, making a book is the practice of laying bets on the various possible outcomes of a single event. The term originates from the practice of recording such wagers in a hard-bound ledger (the ‘book’) and gives the English language the term bookmaker for the person laying the bets and thus ‘making the book’.[1][2]”
