Bert Osborne was quick to note that anything lost by having fewer games during the NBA playoffs will easily be made up in the handle created by the World Cup, which starts on June 11. “The popularity of this event has soared to new heights in our books each of the last two events.”
Many books like the South Point have had their odds and matchups available for wagering since the field was announced. Recently, some books like the M Resort and Spa and Las Vegas Hilton Super Book have offered a wide array of assorted propositions, similar to what we see for the Super Bowl with multiple sheets stapled together.
Speaking of the M Resort, it has been offering their terrific In-Running Wagering program for all NBA Playoff games and will do the same for the World Cup matches.
“We just tested everything for soccer, and it’s ready to go,” said M race and sports Director Mike Colbert. “We expect to have all the top games available for wagering.”
The beauty about in-progress wagering is that you can make bets after witnessing what has happened during the game. How many times have we all said, “Man, if I only knew Rashard Lewis was going to be in a daze for this game, I’d have bet it all against the Magic.”
By seeing how the flow of a game is going, you can hedge previous bets as somewhat of an insurance against your initial wagers, or you can go larger on wagers if everything you thought would happen came to fruition. These types of wagers are available at the M Resort and Spa as well as the Venetian and Palazzo.
