If he bets with a bookie, he has to lay the points.
Wrong. Quit while you're behind.
I'm guessing you are completely clueless as usual, so I'll help you out. The reason Vegas has lines is because they will lose every time if they allow straight up betting.
Sorry but you're the clueless one as usual. You said if he bets with a bookie he has to lay the points. And you were wrong.
You can bet without points all day long. It's called betting the money line. I see you realized your blunder with your subsequent post. Nice attempt at backtracking. LOL.
Watching the games in a sports book is great. I do it every week in my new city, Vegas.
