In gambling and betting, what is a "vick?" I understand it's a cut-
but is it a cut of a winning bet? What is the average percentage for a
vick if I understand what it is?

Hello rustysteel-ga 

A "vick" is actually pronounced VIG and is short for vigorish which is
Yiddish slang for winnings.

The vig is the amount taken by the house or bookmaker for taking the
bet.  It is often also called the "juice".

Yes- I had the wrong word- thank you. How does the VIG work in a line based scheme?
