Bad Place to be a Bookie This Week – Virginia and the Cavaliers

Playing mighty Villanova on Sunday, the Virginia Cavaliers had won five straight coming into that game.  This makes the entire state of Virginia a dangerous place to be a bookie right now.

Virginia was 11-6 Against The Spread entering Sunday’s contest and had covered in four of their last five games overall.

Virginia is coming off a triumphant win against number 14 Notre Dame, a team they had beaten all five times in league play, each one decisive. 

"Every game you step into, you just don't know when you're going to be right and the other team is going to be off," Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett said. "You just want to be ready. I don't think Notre Dame was at its best."

The Commonwealth’s fan base continues to expand.  Just six years ago, a poll revealed that 32% of Virginians were Hokies fans, while only 21% called themselves Wahoo fans.

In 2015, 34% of the Commonwealth now consider themselves to be Virginia fans, while 28% consider themselves Virginia Tech fans. The remaining 38% were not a fan of either school.

At that time 54% of Virginia fans approved of the job Tony Bennett is doing as basketball coach.

The use of a Pay Per Head service would have helped reduce losses through the offering of live in-play betting, numerous proposition and future betting options as well as the option of adding an online casino.

A Pay Per Head runs all aspect of the bookie business with the exception of handling financial transactions.  They charge a small weekly fee per customer (per head), often starting around $10.  In the long run, bookies and agents alike save money while minimizing the headaches involved in running such a business entirely on their own.
