Richie Baccellieri

In case you don't know me, for years people in Vegas knew Richie B as a kind of linesmaker's linesmaker - a kind of numerical purist who, when every other sports book in Vegas was posting Ohio State (-7) over Texas, I was saying... "NO! It ought to be Ohio State (-8)!"

I took a position. I didn't just put up a "betting middle" where I could draw even betting action from both sides. Instead - if I really felt the Buckeyes were stronger than generally thought - I'd put up (-8) or even (-9) and dare the bettors, "Come and get me! Prove me wrong!"

And they couldn't do it! My house would clean up when heavy hitters like Roger King and Kerry Packer would take up my dare and lay $250,000 on Texas and get killed.

Last year - my maiden season as a public handicapper - with a group of private players to join me -

  • We went 79-47 for 62.7%.
  • In weeks, we went 12-5 (two weeks we lost only on the vig).
  • If you bet flat $100 units, you cleared $2,730.
  • If you took my recommended units, you made over $10,000.
  • And of course, if you rolled your profits over as you went along, you made much, much more.

Chad Millman, described me as Vegas' Oddsmaker, in his book: "The Odds: One Season, Three Gamblers and the Death of Las Vegas". He went on to say that "Richie Baccellieri is a throwback. His renegade attitude is more Wiseguy than Bookmaker".

I've always said that there's absolutely no mystery to beating the Las Vegas Spread. It's only a number. There are those in this business, salesmen mostly, who will tell you it's tricky and hard to figure... That only a handful of people are really "in the know" They know stuff you don't know. Get "inside" word you never hear about and win money you lose.

It doesn't work that way at all. Beating the spread is a very straight forward proposition. The information is available to anyone who has the time and patience to dig for it and the expertise to know what's important and what isn't. If you do your due diligence, look behind the numbers, get a general idea of who can beat who, compare the style of play, visualize the matchups (man on man, style vs style). Sure it's work. But hard work is what it takes to succeed at anything.

I spend 80 hours a week at this job. I track games all day long.

That is the real difference between the part time handicapper who's got a pretty good opinion, which maybe describes you and...

The dedicated full-time obsessed, football-obsessed goggle-eyed-from-watching-too-many-games professional handicapper... Which is Me.

That's why you should be with me this season. I am on the case all day, every day. So that by the time you get your selections, I have been tracking your games all week-long - from Sunday Night to the moment you log into the web site.

How to bet on football more like a sharp and less like a sucker

By Brett Smiley (special contributor to

From September 21, 2012

You’ve got some action but do you really have a clue? Maybe. More likely you’re part of the uninformed, reactive public that bets for entertainment. There’s nothing wrong with that (except your ticket). But if you’re interested in making a profit, you can recalibrate your sports betting approach, follow telling trends, ignore popular sentiment and put your bankroll where the sharps do.

The house always wins, but it doesn’t beat everyone.

Vegas and the NFL: How the league plays both sides

LAS VEGAS - We've seen how the NFL paints the dirty little secret, the one that may not be so dirty after all.

By the end of this weekend, sports books in this town expect to surpass a handle of $100 million on Super Bowl Sunday, making it the single-greatest day in sports gambling history. A seminal moment for the gaming industry and another awkward pause for the NFL's billion-dollar industry.

While commissioner Roger Goodell has spent years publicly keeping sports wagering at arm's length, its impact on the game is undeniable.

"If they wanted to stop gambling, they'd stop…
