    So a Vegas professional gambler who calls himself "Vegas Dave" had the Royals before the MLB season started, picked Rousey to lose, and had the Broncos all season for a cool $2M payout.

    With that said, how much money do you think he loses at sports books that doesn't go public. I could be wrong, but with his posted win records I find it hard to believe books would take his action.

    Thoughts?

    I thought I read he had the Rousey fight and something else parlayed to clean up. I don't recall off the top of mY head though

    Does he post his picks before the outcomes? If not, then I call bullshit. Anyone can post a winning ticket after the fact, making it look like a big win, when in fact he also made a big bet on the other side, so his actual win:loss is much smaller.
    Why do that? The cost of the juice might be worth the advertisement value for him.

    And yeah with those records he would have to be spreading his action and having runners bet for him.

    He sells his picks and his "players" all vouch for him, but a lot of people were saying during bowl season what he was posting was not his actual record for it. Just can't imagine a book taking action on someone who places 5 figure bets on MLB and only supposedly has a few losses over several seasons.

    I'd imagine it's like some of the touts who post stuff on Twitter and count wins with lines that seem to have never been available.

    Zero fucking chance this is real. Zero.

    I can see 12-0 NCAAF and 9-1 NFL. That's completely possible in the short term but impossible over a long period. Anyone can go on a run and win several games over a short period. Especially being very selective about the plays they make.

    His MLB record is impossible though and I refuse to believe it. In fact, I'd refuse to believe it if he showed me proof as if he'd left out some of his losses.

    In fact, I challenge anyone to post here on a regular basis their baseball picks and show me a winning run. I did the same with a guy over at VMB that said he was great at picking baseball winners and he posted what amounted to be several losers and then disappeared for good.

    Baseball is by far the most difficult sport to handicap. And, don't bring up the old baseball sweep betting strategy. That's been proven a loser time and time again no matter who has tweaked it and how many times people swear by it. It simply doesn't work.
