There business is predicting outcomes. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to make this simple enough for you to understand.
Sorry, but you don't actually know what you're talking about. Read up on risk and probability. Maybe also learning about the concept of hedging might help you out. Outcome is a factor, but there's a lot more to maximising return on a wager - and as a business, that is what they do, not simply predict outcomes.
