THE LIFE OF A BOOKIE – HOUSTON

THE LIFE OF A BOOKIE – HOUSTON

When you talk about Houston, you are talking about an area that has really rejuvenated itself from the standpoint of sports and the culture it has created. And it is also a city that had united over Hurricane Harvey and has been recovering from it.

It is also a big city indeed. We wonder if you realize that this is the fourth largest city in the United States. So naturally you have a huge population to draw from.

And there are going to be a lot of potential benefits for bookies who are enterprising enough, especially if they know how to make use of the PPH software that is available through Real Bookies.

No Longer the Astro-NOTS

So there’s been a revival of baseball “action” in the region for bookies. When you are dealing with people who bet Astros games, you’ll need to be very familiar with run lines; i.e., lines where a team is laying at least a run and a half on a game. That’s because they often bludgeon opponents with their considerable offense.

Maybe You’re a Rocket-Man

That the Rockets are not an afterthought is good news for you as you move on with your bookie business, because the NBA, celebrating a new and lucrative TV deal, is big business. Yes, football is a “bread-and-butter” proposition, but basketball is something that can carry you through all the way to the summer.

The Texans Are Here

They are playing in the palace-like NRG Stadium, which dwarfs the Astrodome right next to it – a sign of how far things have come in the NFL.

The Alumni Pipeline

You don’t have to go to a lot of rodeos to round up players for your bookie business. Chances are, you are going to run into people who are alumni of all these Texas-based institutions who play major college football.

We’re talking about Texas, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Baylor, Houston, North Texas, Rice, SMU, TCU, Texas State, UTEP and UTSA. That’s 9% of all the schools currently playing Division I (FBS) ball. And that covers a lot of conferences – the SEC, Big 12, Conference USA, American and Sun Belt.

Be ready for college football, because you can guarantee that alumni are following those schools and those leagues, and will bet on them. Are they “sharps” or “squares”? Track them through the back-end to find out, and keep in mind that you can take games off the board or adjust lines yourself if you need to.

You may not be a Lone Star among bookies, but you can be an All-Star!
