True Gambling Stories #003: Parlays & Paydays – $5 Sports Bet Wins Big
As the debate over sports betting plays out before the U.S. Supreme Court, the third episode of True Gambling Stories focuses on a sports bettor’s dream. After moving to Las Vegas, Boston's Tayla Polia overcame extremely long odds – turning one small bet into a gigantic score. How her win came about is quite a tale.
Guests on this episode also focus on the debate over sports wagering and just what all goes in to placing a bet at a casino. The podcast offers some great insight from Tayla herself as well as sports gambling law expert Daniel Wallach and sports betting "casual degenerate" Sasha Salinger.
