    Dollar Sign I heard Billy Walters bet 2 Million Dollars on The Super Bowl

    For those of you who respect Billy Walters (and I do), you might be interested in this tidbit...

    I was informed that Billy Walters bet 2 million dollars on the Colts -4 at the Bellagio...

    Supposedly, he had Phil Ivey place the wager for him...

    Is this considered a chase for the mil he lost on the Chargers?

    Surprised he didn't buy down to -3. But, it's always good to know which way the Big Kahuna is going. Thanks, and GL, Shrink.

    Or is this just a 4 unit play for him?

    When I attended my one and only Super Bowl, it was the Bucs against the Raiders in San Diego..

    I stayed in Le Hoya, the trip cost me 30k including buying the best seats in the house off of a ticket broker.

    I was there with Marty Jensen of all people.

    I went double or nothing taking the BUCS for 3O k and then bet Marty 5k on the side...

    I'll never forget the pleasure I got taking his money and having the entire vacation paid for by a bookie...

    I would be very surprised if the Bellagio would ever take a bet for an amount of 2 million dollars.

    As of last night, according to someone I know who is affiliated with the place, they haven't yet.

    And my source is with the Bellagio.

    Have one of your minions walk in there, and casually ask someone at the counter.

    The myth of Billy Walters is already justifiable enough with ranging into fantasyland status.

    Because BW would NEVER middle a 4 and a 6 in the NFL and pay to buy the 6...

    That's not his style....

    You will go broke trying to middle those numbers in the NFL...

    I certainly don't want to get into a pissing match with the Shrink. And if I am wrong, I will be the first to apologize.

    But in the history of Las Vegas sportsbooks, to my knowledge, this would be the largest exposure that any casino has ever had on ONE BET. And that would have been sure to be picked up by one of the journalists in town. And all this in an age where casinos are looking to limit the size of bets.

    Seems kind of unlikely, doesn't it?

    I don't want to get into a pissing contest with you either. But it is very conceivable that this sports book had another client who liked the saints for a large bet too...

    Just sayin'

    As far as leaking this to a journalist, these sports books are very careful to respect the privacy of their valued customers...

    -4 -110 and +6 -110?

    The push rate on 4 is 2.99%.
    The push rate on 6 is 3.40%.
    The 5 has a miniscule push rate of 1.68%.

    That would be the worst middle opportunity in the history of gambling. Not a likely combination from the worlds biggest and best sports bettor.

    I like the Colts on the ML, this team finds a way to win, and if they're down late, I am confident Manning will lead them to victory. I am concerned that without Freeney at 100%, the Saints will get theirs, too, so I'm paying for insurance and playing the best ML I can find between now and kickoff. The fact that Mr. Walters is laying the points makes me feel even better about my position.

    So, some guy tries to tell Shrink who knows Billy personally that the wager was never placed. I've seen it all now.

    Also, seeing all the haters come out against BW is hilarious. People root for him to lose because he's successful. It's a funny world we live in.
