No, the lottery is a tax on stupid people who are bad at math. Sports gambling, if you pay very close attention, can be a money making venture. Of course, you can still lose as well, but it's not random like the lottery is.

All casino games are losing propositions to the player. The odds ALWAYS favor the house. Poker is the only game where you can have the odds in your favor, but you have to be better than at least some of the other players.

Technically gambling houses don't make money off of sports bets because of the odds. Their goal is to create odds that get equal amounts of betting on both sides -so that no matter who wins they've got the payouts covered by the other side's losses. They make their money by taking a percentage of the winnings that either side has. That's why your $110 bet only pays off $100.
