UPDATE

Part II of bettingtalk.com's excellent interview with Billy Walters. Disgusted with the current state of the Las Vegas sportsbook scene, Walters did however throw praise towards Cantor Gaming as a place where sharp bettors could play. But according to the article, other pro bettors have had issues with Cantor, issues that seemingly coincided with Mike Colbert/Pinnacle shakedown.

Good article from bettingtalk.com as Billy Walters talks about the current state of sports betting in Las Vegas.


“Today in Las Vegas, I can bet about 20 percent of what I used to be able to bet,” Walters explained in a Wednesday phone interview. “College football totals are a good example. You can bet more money on them with one sportsbook outside of Nevada than you can at all of the sportsbooks in Nevada combined.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: The evolution of football's opening line

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the modern era of sports betting, what is exactly is The Opening Line?  It’s most assuredly not a meaningless question.  There are many bettors who consider the opening number as an important part of their handicap. 

Long term winning bettors don’t bet bad numbers – if they miss their targeted strike price, they’ll leave the game alone.  So the opening number – or what they consider to be the opening number – holds significant weight in future wagering decisions.

When I first moved to Vegas in the late 90’s, there was no debate.  Joe Lupo, Bob Scucci, Doug Castanada and the rest of the bookmakers at the Stardust hung the very first numbers, worldwide.  When those opening numbers were first posted, the ‘Dust held a lottery to determine the order of who could bet first, second, third and on down the line.  Bettors coveted a place at or near the front of that line – it legitimately made a difference.

The Sunday Night lottery at the Stardust during football season was a spectacle to behold.  The book was packed; the energy electric in anticipation of those Read more

Teddy Covers gives us the scoop on the 'official' College Football Week 1 opening numbers

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Yesterday was the first meeting of the season for the legendary 'Tuesday Group' of professional bettors here in Las Vegas. We had a very spirited debate about what the 'official' college football Week 1 opening numbers actually are/were.

With different books posting very different numbers at different times, we decided a 'consensus' opening line was a better choice than using any one book. The initial variance is gone, and the spreads as of RIGHT NOW on 8/7 should be considered the 'market openers'. Track moves from today, not before!

Thursday, 8/29:

SOUTH CAROLINA -10.5 North Carolina
MINNESOTA -14 Unlv
BOWLING GREEN -4 Tulsa
UCF -21.5 Akron
UTAH -3 Utah St
Ole Miss -3 VANDERBILT
Fresno -10 Rutgers
Usc -21.5 HAWAII

Friday, 8/30:

MICHIGAN ST -26.5 Western Michigan
MIAMI-FL -32.5 Florida Atlantic
Texas Tech -6 SMU

Saturday, 8/31:

WISCONSIN -45 Umass
MICHIGAN -31.5 Central Michigan
OHIO ST -36 Buffalo
NC ST -13.5 Louisiana Tech
MARYLAND -19.5 Florida International
IOWA -3 Northern Illinois
NOTRE DAME -29.5 Temple
Byu -3 Read more
