Published by AuthorHouseBooks
This journal captures the day-by-day, week-by-week excitement of a fall season spent challenging the sports books of. Reno as the author tries to beat the point spread betting college football. While basically the story of one man, armed with a system, going head to head against the oddsmaker, it is also an ethnography of the sports books of Nevada. The author, a professional anthropologist, presents the mo detailed account ever written of just how sports books operate. How is the point spread made? By whom? How does it change, game by game, in response to the money bet? All this and more is revealed. . . . . .But beyond that here is a very human story of an avid football fan, indulging his passion and his hobby, trying doggedly to outsmart the oddsmaker. Moreover; the book catches the flavor of the gambling scene in Reno, as well as reflecting the color and pageantry of college football.
