I LOVE this idea. People think Vegas and glitz and parties. Bryan treats Vegas like a job and most of the time (if not all), it a daily grind.

and the rest of the story everybody was looking for....

 

And then some bitch ruins the damn party....

Billy,

You would have to check with each individual book for that. In Vegas it all depends on who you are. If you are a local who bets for a living not much. If you are a regular roulette player with a large bankroll it's much higher.

Money management, line shopping and reading the betting markets are just as important as picking the right side.

Bryan when u say not much for max bet for a local r u talking about 200.00$ max bet? If that's the case it really doesn't seem to be an advantage to being in Vegas because u said its becoming harder to bet for a living in Vegas... U mind as well bet offshore and not deal with the long drives to the books and and the limits they put on you... Am I wrong?

You can get at least a dime just about anywhere. But if you are looking to bet totals its about half that in many places.

I got to meet Bryan when I was in Las Vegas over Thanksgiving, Bryan is a good guy and he does have a great sense of humor!  Especially when he was filming a video with Marco!

Bryan you forgot to mention the hour prep time in writing your jokes for busting my balls on the videos each week....LOL

But Bryan made up for it by telling me he would buy my wings every Monday Night during the Football Season...didn't realize till half way thru the season the bar had free wings every Monday Night during Football...

All kidding aside Bryan is one of the truly legit guys in the business and I have the up most respect for him. I am glad that we have gotten the chance to work together.

Plus Bryan may be the only winning sports franchise to ever reside in Cleveland Oh... Cheer up buddy you can always drive to Pittsburgh when your home if you want to see what a Super Bowl Trophy looks like...

I am looking forward to stories of what is going on in the sportsbooks. Screw the lines, I mean the junkie bettors and drama that goes on!

LOL Johnny, I could show you some funny shit that goes on in the betting shops here in Ireland...my town has population of about 18-20k and has 7 bookmaker shops..everyday I see people coming in with their weekly welfare checks and smash it all on 4/5 ponies - it's kinda sad cus their kids can suffer it's the dark side of gambling...

Bryan you mentioned when William Hill comes in, will this be a disadvantage? Surely the other books that have been there a long time should be able to survive as they are established with people?...W Hill (at least this side of the pond) don't give the best prices, maybe a little bit more juice on soccer and european sports - not sure how they handle US Sports but if they want to take some of the market they would have to be competitive?
