Yes, there is life in Las Vegas sportsbooks after football! And yes, thanks to Professor Vegas guest Micah Roberts, there is also winning in Las Vegas sportsbooks after football. Last week, on the first post-Super Bowl episode of the weekly audio betting magazine, Roberts advised listeners that he was wagering on Denny Hamlin to win the Daytona 500. The former Las Vegas sportsbook director and longtime NASCAR oddsmaker insisted there is still value in backing Hamlin at odds of 10-1 after opening at 15-1! Roberts expected Hamlin to win for the first time at Daytona, which he did in a dramatic photo finish.
We went out of the box with NASCAR last week, and we will do it again on this week’s edition of Professor Vegas, when we are joined by Poker Hall of Famer Daniel Negreanu. The independent ranking service Global Poker Index ranks Negreanu as the best poker player of the past decade. And who can argue after his six World Series Of Poker bracelets and two World Poker Tour championship titles? Hear Negreanu, one of the primary faces of Poker Stars, not only discuss his incredible career, but also the new documentary about his life Kid Poker. The Toronto native also talks hockey betting and his efforts to bring the NHL to Las Vegas. The exclusive interview even features Negreanu answering listener questions about everything from poker strategy to new poker variations.
Professor Vegas is a weekly audio sports betting magazine that is available on iTunes and Play.it.
