Dallas, Texas Team Fan Base

The Dallas Cowboys will typically have the largest fan and betting base in this region despite the popularity of area College Football teams.  As of Week 10 of the 2016 NFL season, the Cowboys were killing the books with only one loss and one failed cover.

Texas, Baylor, TCU and Texas A&M will have fan bases that stretch throughout this region.

The Texas Longhorns, in particular, should have a good College Basketball team in 2016.  Texas A&M and Baylor will also be competitive. 

Why Use a Pay Per Head

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. .

Utilizing contracting services is common in many successful industries.  In the case of a local bookie, the Pay Per Head provides a prudent means of adding that necessary layer of security, not just to protect from savvy sports bettors, but also by minimizing the potential of becoming victimized by criminal elements. A known area bookie residence will typically mean “cash on hand”, sometimes lots of it.

Carlo Piranio, a native of Sicily, immigrated to the U.S. circa 1901 with his brother Joseph. They first settled in Shreveport, Louisiana. Carlo began the Dallas faction of the American Mafia in 1921 with Joseph as his underboss. Source: Wikipedia

Joseph Civello assumed control of the Dallas Crime family in 1956, when Joseph Piranio died at age 78.

After Civello's death in 1970, the FBI listed the Dallas Family as inactive though Joseph Campisi, a long time capo, would ultimately assume control of the family in 1973.  He was awarded a certificate from the City of Dallas for outstanding community service and would ultimately die in 1990 from a heart attack he suffered when chasing a busboy out of his restaurant for stealing money from him.
