Badder Beats 9: Handicapper Golden Boy and we meet Nico Sfanos

Badder Beats 9: Handicapper Golden Boy and we meet Nico Sfanos

At the end of a work junket - no, seriously - to New Orleans, Brant James and Ryan Butler wash ashore at DraftKings at Scarlet Pearl Sportsbook to conclude a weekend of National Football League Wildcard merriment.


There’s massive televisions, beer, wings, comfortable chairs and slot machines just on the other side of the theater rope keeping the masses from their primo table. And there were people who would give you money if you correctly predicted what was going to happen in a game. I know, right!?

Sfanos offers some deep insights on running a new sportsbook in D’Iberville, Miss., and shares his background in Las Vegas. He was kind of bummed about the Ravens game during the interview, but he pushed through.


Also on the docket from D'Iberville ...

NFL playoffs, Clemson and the Trevor Lawrence mania machine, some deep-diving analysis on Divisional weekend with our new friend, Golden Boy, Steven Golden for Reno, Nevada.

The guy has some analytical skills. He’s a good guy to know.
