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.

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting the Super Bowl

Even though the Super Bowl lines have been up in Las Vegas for several days, there’s a lingering suspicion that a lot of smart money will hit the board this weekend. Sharps who prefer New England bet very early in the process, sensing that public sentiment was going to be on the Patriots. Sharps preferring Seattle have taken some early positions, but are still hoping to see something better if there’s a game day surge from squares on Tom Brady.

Remember…tourists will just start arriving in Las Vegas Friday night for the big sports weekend. If early betting is any indication…

Richie Baccellieri: Betting Super Bowl Props

One of the main reasons Las Vegas sportsbooks make so much money during Super Bowl Week is because squares (the general public) loves betting on propositions, or “prop” bets. Squares usually take the worst of it on these plays…which means sportsbooks are locked into a profit before kickoff unless they’re heavily one-sided on the game and lose that side.

Why?

*Choices that offer odds, aren’t offering “true” odds. Let’s say you want to pick the player who scores the first touchdown…or who wins the MVP award. There are many possible choices to bet on…yet only one player can score that first TD…and…
