My heart supports Las Vegas Metro

VIP Getting Rich with Saber | I start this article with a very heavy heart. I was all set to come into the office this morning in a very good mood with our Las Vegas Golden Knights almost ready to take the ice in games that count. But as I turned on the TV this morning I learned of the horrible event that happened on the Vegas Strip with some nut case shooter killing 50 or more concert goers across from Mandalay Bay.
I start this article with a very heavy heart. I was all set to come into the office this morning in a very good mood with our Las Vegas Golden Knights almost ready to take the ice in games that count. But as I turned on the TV this morning I learned of the horrible event that happened on the Vegas Strip with some nut case shooter killing 50 or more concert goers across from Mandalay Bay.
Fans were there having a night out on the town watching a concert, not bothering anyone. We here at GamingToday want to send out our prayers for the families and loved ones of those who were massacred and injured.
Also, we thank the Las Vegas Metro Police for bringing this tragedy to a close before many more were injured or killed. Our thoughts also go the families and loved ones of the two off-duty police officers that were killed. It’s a sad day both for Las Vegas and humanity.
On the positive side, we here in Vegas have a golden opportunity. Many of you grew up in states that were near major pro teams, like me who hailed just 39 miles away from Pittsburgh where I could go to see the Steelers and Penguins play. I even caught the early days of the Pittsburgh Pipers who later became the Pittsburgh Condors.
We took the 40 minute road trip from Steubenville to see the great Connie Hawkins. He was the best in the American Basketball Association at the time and the Pipers won the first title with him.
Now we have the golden opportunity to just go and see the Vegas Golden Knights play and it will take less than 40 minutes to get to the Strip.
We need to get out and support them and this bettor will with betting dollars. We think the Knights will create a boon for NHL betting, especially for those fans coming here to see their team play Vegas. I know several of my friends from Chicago have already made plans to come here on Oct. 24 to see the Blackhawks take on the Knights.
My cousin Bruce Saber and his buddies from Pittsburgh are getting geared up for the Penguins’ visit here on Dec. 14. If you can’t make it to the game be sure to back the Knights at the betting windows at your favorite sportsbook.
Last week my main plays went 2-3 with Iowa having a good shot for the cover but fumbling it away on the 5. Miami of Ohio just was overmatched vs. Notre Dame and Virginia Tech gave it a shot but could not handle Clemson, who I am now putting on my do-not-bet-against list. My add-on parlay plays had 3 winners and 2 losers, so we will move on.

Michigan St. +14 at Michigan: I usually don’t like to lay two TD’s in a game like this but will make an exception here as the undefeated Wolverines are the much better team and own a defense that will totally shut down the anemic Michigan State offense. MICHIGAN
