Description

Chris Andrews began his “unofficial― career in sports betting when he was a kid in

Pittsburgh. His uncle, Jack Franzi, is a legend among bookmakers and wiseguys. Chris launched

his “official― career in the sports betting industry as a ticket writer in Las Vegas in 1979. He

rose quickly through the ranks and became the director of the sports book at the Club Cal Neva in

Reno at the age of 25. Heâ€s now the sports book director at the South Point in Las Vegas.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. I saw innumerable systems bettors at

the Cal Neva, but one pair of fairly young gamblers showed up during the 1982 baseball season.

The Minnesota Twins were coming off a dismal season, going 41-68 (.376) in the strike-shortened

1981 campaign. Theyâ€d also been last in the American League in attendance and their

television revenues were minimal. The projections of the Twins being the worst team in baseball

were coming true, with only mild competition from other quarters. In mid-May, two guys came in to

the Cal Neva, one in his early 30s, the other in his late 20s. They were only interested on betting

one team, the Twins. They put up the limit of $2,000 on their first bet and when I moved the

number, they asked if they could get $3,000. No problem. I moved it again and they bet another

$2,000. They never looked at any other games. They were polite and cheery, got done with their

business, and were on their way. The Twins lost that night, but the next day, these two bettors

came in with the exact same m.o. The Twins lost again, yet there they were again the next day.

This was three days in a row and, needless to say, this wasnâ€t what ordinary customers were

looking for. I had to probe a little. “Do you guys mind if I ask you what youâ€re doing?― The

older one answered. “Weâ€ll tell you as long as you promise not to screw around with the

lines.― “Thatâ€s an easy one,― I said. “I have no trouble getting as much action as I

want back on the other side.― “Well,― the older one again did the talking. “Weâ€re

going to keep betting the Twins every day. We know they have to win sooner or later and

theyâ€re big dogs every day. We keep pressing our bets, so when they do win, weâ€ll get all

our money back and then some.― The two had big smiles on their faces like they just figured out

how to print money legally. “That makes a lot of sense,― I said. “The only problem is you

might run out of money before they actually win a game.― The guy looked me right in the eye

(honest to God, Iâ€ll never forget this if I live to be 1,000 years old) and said, “The last thing

we gotta worry about is running out of money.― I just shrugged my shoulders and said,

“Okay.― The Twins lost again. And again. And again. True to their word, the two guys were in

every day and pressing. Some of my customers told me they were brothers from an oil family in

Texas. They figured the two somehow got into Daddyâ€s money and figured out a


“canâ€t-los
