Casinos like people to come in the front doors and play with the machines with glittery lights. Some of the most serious gamblers go directly to the sports book to avoid all of the distractions, or just to watch a game. Most casual players do this for a social outing, and it’s usually a safe haven for a smoker to light up.
However, every now and then, there’s a quiet shark that makes their living in the sports books. Casinos tolerate people to win huge amounts on games, because most people have no idea on how to play. Further, in Vegas, the busloads of tourists that become drunk and spend all their money on cheap and most win games basically bankroll these serious players.
Those that come to Vegas casinos usually are looking for quick, thoughtless money. However, every now and then they have a careful plan and hedge their bets. There are even a few rare people out there that are heavily educated in mathematics areas that apply formulas and other fancy mathematical terms to help support their bets, changing the odds into their favor.
The important thing about a sports book is this:
Before going to the casino, call a friend that knows a lot about sports, and get their advice, unless your friend is a loser.
Go straight to the sports book.
Do not be tempted by the free drinks.
Wear a watch – Casino’s are known to not have clocks to disorient you.
Only gamble what you can afford.
There are also many different ways you can avoid most of these distractions by placing bets on sport books online – from the current NFL season, to horse races around the country. There is always something available to bet on.
I didn’t know of anyone with a statistics Ph.D. that used their fancy education to help them win bets, until I found this system online. If you don’t have a friend that has a Ph.D. in statistics and is an avid gambler, you may want to consider it too. [http://vegasluck.info]
