Before you hit the casinos in Vegas, these gambling tips could improve your odds. We’d be willing to bet on it.
When in Rome…you drink wine and visit ancient ruins.
When in Vegas…you might as well try your hand at gambling. Brandon knows his way around a casino. It’s not all about luck. Here’s his advice.
Brandon has a routine that begins early every morning (10 a.m.is early in Vegas) with a trip to the sports bet. Because of the time zone difference, the games are played earlier in Vegas.

Good luck — and if you still lose big, please don’t blame us. –Wally
