Bookies Battle

September 03, 2010 11:45 AM by GT Staff

One of the highlights of the football season is GamingToday’s Bookies Battle, now in its 25th season. Perhaps the most difficult of all contests, the Bookies Battle requires bookmakers to pick every NFL regular season game on Monday morning, often times before a betting line has been established.

The bookmakers’ selections and their cumulative season records, as well as a consensus selection, are published every week in GamingToday and on the web during the regular NFL season.

This year we have 67 bookies participating and as a VIP or VIP+ subscriber, you get to follow the action!

The $1,000 prize awarded to the state’s top bookmaker doesn’t compare to the prestige of out-handicapping the state’s best oddsmakers.

Last year, Josh Pool of Fiesta Ranch beat out 48 other Nevada sports book directors. Who will win this year? Be sure to keep track of the action by subscribing to GamingToday. Below are links to each week's action.
