How is Professor Vegas different from other sports podcasts? Well, what other show has the follow-up story to the Las Vegas bettor who won $2.5 million on the Kansas City Royals? Is it true that he bet $20,000 on Holly Holm, who upset UFC champion Ronda Rousey? We also investigate how badly the Vegas casinos bottom line was impacted by that surprising upset.

The dean of Las Vegas bookies, Jimmy Vaccaro of the South Point Hotel, not only details how the casinos crushed the NFL bettors last week when underdogs dominated, but he will tell you what NFL game this weekend will be the “make or break” decision for the sports books.
