Carrie Stroup:  When it comes to the world of Super Bowl betting and odds related to the big game and those that led up to it, nobody compares.

"She's a machine," comments Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website for which Ms. Stroup is a Senior Reporter.

20 articles a week is not uncommon for Carrie Stroup to write. 

"I'm so used to it," she laughs.  "I sometimes find myself writing articles in my sleep.  I kid you not."

She must!  Her production is extraordinary.

Stroup doubles as a representative for the uber popular Sportsbook.com chain of betting sites, including virtual host to the Players Only Online Casino.  This time of year, most of her efforts are put towards Super Bowl betting coverage.

"Anyone who bets on the Super Bowl and does their research probably knows who Carrie Stroup is," commented Don Shapiro, a sports columnist at the Gambling911.com website. 

Dave Stanley, a spokesperson for Sportsbook.com acknowledged that writing tends to come first for the reporter workhorse Stroup.

"There was a time when we would have Carrie host Super Bowl parties for our company.  These days we understand and respect her workload as a Senior Reporter for the Gambling911.com website," Stanley said.

Ms. Stroup will likely be the most prolific writer for the site come Super Bowl Sunday.

"My schedule," she said.  "I'll be up around 5 am and will be glued to my computer probably until half time.  Today there is a lot more competition in the world of Super Bowl betting coverage and Gambling911.com is battle hearty these days, especially with the economy the way it is."

Stroup expects her workload to more than double the days leading up to the big game and straight through that Sunday. 

"She's now been given a copy editor to help her pump out articles," said O'Brien.  "Nobody works harder.  We call Carrie ‘the Machine'."

Born just a few miles up A1A (Collins Avenue) from the Gambling911.com digs (Fort Lauderdale, Florida), the sexy vixen represented the United States at the Miss World 2001 Pageant as Miss World USA.  She had previously held the Miss United States Tenn 1998 title.  Stroup has also appeared in film and television, most notably the series "Scrubs". 

These days, the 26 year old Stroup spends much of her time in Los Angeles doing a little modeling and acting on the side.  But all that hard work has made her one wealthy little 20-something.  Stroup's income ranges in the high $200,000's.  Then again, she is a post graduate.

"She deserves every penny," said O'Brien.
