The Odds: One Season, Three Gamblers, and the Death of Their Las Vegas by Chad Millman

One gambler is a manic former cokehead with an Ivy League degree. The second is a college dropout trying to make a living at the only thing he enjoyed at schoolgambling. The third, one of Vegass most respected bookmakers, is perilously close to burning out.The Oddsfollows the lives of these three professional gamblers through a college basketball season in a one-of-a-kind city struggling to reconcile its lawless past with its family-friendly makeover. With a wiseguy attitude and a faultless eye and ear for the sights and sounds of Vegas and its denizens, Chad Millman has created a portrait that theWall Street Journalcalled fascinating. . . often screamingly funny.The Las Vegas Review-Journalhad just one word for the book: Superb.
