Gambling911.com has your 10 Worst Regions to be a Bookie this month. 

11 (HONORABLE MENTION) Washington, DC/Northern Virginia – The Redskins weren’t supposed to be this good.  They were 5-3 Straight Up heading into Week 11 of the NFL but were 6-3 Against The Spread.

10 Chicago, Illinois – The city just celebrated the Cubs first World Series win in well over a century.  The only folks in Chicago not celebrating – aside from a few White Sox fans – were the bookies.  Fortunately, the Bears have helped the books come back a bit.

9 Toronto, Ontario – The Blue Jays, Maple Leafs, Raptors – all good teams that – especially the Blue Jays - have given the bookies in this Canadian city fits of late.  The Maple Leafs in particular may continue to give bookies here heartburn.

8 Los Angeles, California – The city’s two NBA teams – the Lakers and Clippers – have started off the season red hot.  Bookies had previously had to deal with the Dodgers winning ways.  Southern California is also playing well in College Football though that may be offset by UCLA’s lackluster season so far. They now have an NFL team, the Rams, which is breaking even for books.  The bookies are hoping the NBA teams cool off a bit.

7 Boulder, Colorado – The Buffaloes have managed to go 9-1 Against The Spread heading into Week 12.  Colorado State, meanwhile, owed an 8-2 ATS record coming into Week 12.  As if that weren’t bad enough for the books, the Denver Broncos enter Week 11 of the NFL with a 7-3 record Against The Spread.  Bookies in this region, needless-to-say, are getting slaughtered and will require a Pay Per Head business to assist them if they want to survive.

6 Oakland, California – Not only do you have to deal with the Golden State Warriors (who as of November 17 owned a 4-6 ATS record, but don’t expect that to last), this year you also have to deal with the Raiders, who were 6-3 Against The Spread.   Stanford, just 45 minutes away from Oakland, is also playing good football this season.  Nearby San Francisco bookies have had it a little easier with the 49ers struggles, otherwise we would include them in this region.

5 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – While the Eagles have covered in one game above the .500 mark, bookies here won’t be getting a free ride as Temple University has managed to go 9-1 Against The Spread so far this season.  They have lost three games outright.  Penn State has also been seeing huge action and covering the spread in 6 of 9 games so far this season. The Nittany Lions OVER was 8-2 and heavily backed by the public.  Philadelphia is of course chock full of sports fans and bettors.

4 New England – The Patriots have covered in all but two games this season.  Regional bookies have also had to deal with the Red Sox playing well in 2016.   The Celtics and Bruins are expected to be decent teams in 2016-2017 as well. 

3 Madison, Wisconsin – Well at least the Packers have been stumbling this season as Madison’s Badgers squad is killing it in College Football, failing to cover in only two games this season.   They were 8-2 Straight Up and Against The Spread heading into Week 12.  Bookies will be desperate for a Price Per Head business to help them out.

2 Alabama – It ain’t easy being a bookie in the Yellowhammer State with the Crimson Tide ranking atop the national standings while going 8-2 Against The Spread.  Auburn is also enjoying a successful season, owning a 7-3 record Against The Spread heading into Week 12.

1 Dallas, Texas – This is a no-brainer with the Cowboys exceptional season and going 8-1 both Straight Up and Against The Spread.   The Longhorns have gone 6-4 ATS.
