With the calendar flipping to December, Las Vegas looks forward to week 13 of the NFL season, not to mention the highly anticipated college conference championship weekend. No less than eight college title games are scheduled for Friday and Saturday.
The new Professor Vegas Podcast analyzes these important games with our special guest Chris Andrews, a 30-year legal bookie in Nevada. Andrews and I break down the big matchups and offer betting opinions on the Big 10, ACC and Pac 12 championship battles. Andrews, the man behind Against The Number, also makes point spreads for the selection committee’s four-team playoff. You might be surprised to hear his lines on the potential Clemson-Michigan State and Alabama-Oklahoma games.
In our weekly Action/Reaction news segment, you’ll hear about suspicious betting patterns at last Saturday’s UFC event and also find out what celebrities cashed big bets on Tyson Fury’s upset of heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko.
This is the final week of the regular season in many full-year fantasy football leagues, and Professor Vegas updates you with injury news and the best sleeper choices for waiver-wire pickups.
Our weekly visit behind the sportsbook counter with Jimmy Vaccaro of the South Point Hotel looks at just how important last week’s Denver Broncos win over the New England Patriots was to the bottom line at his casino. Jimmy also tells us what teams he will need this week in both the NFL and college football.
