I have been told by my now deceased uncle/bookie that, unlike craps, sports-booking is a winnable gamble. Some bettors make a pretty consistent killing. Was never much into it myself. But as for predicting the Super Bowl winner, generally I am terrible. Hit a few but not too many. Here we go: Denver -3, under on the score, over on the Omaha. needed to come back to advise that Butch was a bookie, but not my bookie. Don't need a bookie as a crapper. From what I recall, he made more money booking bets than he did as an engineer.
