    Billy Walters interview

    put the mute on a basketball game, and listen to this - you can skip the first 10 minutes, they are uninteresting, but after that Billy Walters talks about his life in gambling, how much sharper the lines are now than they used to be, etc..

    this interview makes me nostalgic - I'm 60 and back in the late 70's, early 80's there was a specialty newstand on 42nd just east of Broadway (there was an OTB next door) that carried dozens of papers from all over the U.S. and the world. I was living on Avenue A, and every afternoon I'd get by there and pick up every paper from all around the U.S. The advantage those papers gave me betting NBA was crazy, I was cut off from a dozen books (thank goodness it was alway easy to find a new book in NY). And then in the late 80's I was the first person I knew on the internet, my wifes girlfriends would come over to the apartment and see my computer screen and they would say to my wife "what is he doing?" like they had just seen an alien in Area 51, again the advantage gained was off the charts. Now, it is like Billy Walters says in this interview, you pay at least a point more than you used to (sadly, you young guys will never know how easy it was to ge a big middle), and getting an advantage vs. books who have MIT Ph .D.'s and Cray supercomputers at their disposal takes the creativity of a Michaelangelo. My advice, take advantage of every resource and figure out something that a machine can't.

    For the young guys and the newbies, coach. If you're old and haven't heard it, you've lost all of your money.

    Enjoyed reading your story about sports betting and advantages in the earlier days of sports gambling

    As far as Billy Walters: the biggest con-artist and scam in American sports betting history

    Hard to believe anything this guy says

    Big fraud
