Las Vegas — Today many of you will be part of history. This will be the most heavily bet NCAA tournament day in history.
Do you know when the previous high was? It was Thursday.
The Vegas sports books are rocking and rolling this week as gamblers from around the world converge here to bet their hearts and bet their instincts during this wild and wacky tournament. The NCAA tournament is huge and getting bigger and bigger and bigger. On Thursday you had three consecutive overtime games. You had Dayton beating Ohio State and betting heavyweights Michigan, Michigan State and Louisville playing. It all led to a huge day of sports bets.
We are staying at the D Las Vegas Hotel and Casino and the place went wild and crazy all day long as games were decided late and Wolverines and Spartans gathered to cheer on their teams.
Here is another tip I heard here. For the most part Vegas makes big money because people bet their heart rather than use sound strategy. If a guy is wearing a Duke Blue Devil T-shirt chances are he is betting the house on Duke no matter what the spread is.
I hope to run into some of you guys as the Valenti and Foster Show broadcast live from The Long Bar at the D Casino. People are having a blast.
