I'm not trying to rebut what you're saying, I'm just trying to understand.

I know it seems that way, but odds are made to induce betting. It's not really "we think Team X should beat Team Z by this many points." The goal to attract equal betting on both sides, this way, no matter what, the betting place makes money.
