Bill Barnwell Talks To A Bookmaker

Bill Barnwell:

It takes a lot to surprise Jay Kornegay. As the sportsbook director at the LVH (formerly Las Vegas Hilton) sportsbook, Kornegay’s seen it all during his eight years at the helm of the city’s bellwether operation — and made money for the casino in the process. When you run a book with the widest variety of futures and proposition bets available while simultaneously releasing those lines before anyone else in Vegas, you normally end up taking a lot of action.

Interesting tidbits from Barnwell on things bookmakers go through, including a lot of current NBA and Super Bowl facts.
