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!"
Announcement: Richie is currently on sabbatical and is not making any selections. Richie's picks are currently coming from Linesmaker consensus group - 4 of the sharpest guys here in Vegas and offshore pooling their information and coming up with selections they agree on.
