CYInterview brings in its experts to breakdown all the angles. We are joined by Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook manager John Avello who provides us analysis on all the gambling action for this bout. Additionally, we are joined by former boxer and current trainer Bobby Rooney to provide analysis on what he thinks will go down in the squared circle on Saturday night.
For the last three to four years, the Wynn sportsbook in Las Vegas has been at max capacity for the NCAA Tournament’s first wave of games beginning on Thursday and ending Sunday, according to CYInterview regular, Wynn Las Vegas sportsbook Manager John Avello. Mr Avello is expecting the same turnout this year.
As a veteran sports gambling linesmaker, one of John Avello’s memories of the tournament is getting a chance to see smaller schools play well known schools from big conferences. Those games do not happen during the regular season.
