    How are these set?

    Do the sports books set them like the line bets in that they want to balance over betting with under betting so they win the vig?

    Exactly. They get the same bets on each side and they still win 10%.

    Yup, That is how they set EVERY line. they want even money action on both sides. That way they always make 10 percent.
