If you’re wondering how a half point can come into play and what terms like “spread” and “over-under” mean, you’re not alone. Most people don’t understand the math involved in setting the odds, or the rules about what’s allowed.
Craig Pleva, General Manager of Monarch Casino Black Hawk, is an expert on explaining the odds, a skill he learned during his earlier career in Reno, Nevada at the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa. Sports betting is not allowed in Colorado, but that won’t stop many from trying their luck with friends and family at parties or with a quick trip to Nevada.
Pleva is available to explain what odds indicate a good bet, what long shot odds really mean, why silly prop bets are made and the numbers on the board in sports books. To arrange an interview, contact Diane Mulligan by phone or at the email address listed above.
