The world of sports in Las Vegas was turned on its head recently with the news of the NFL team, the Oakland Raiders being allowed to move to Las Vegas just as the NHL expansion team, The Vegas Knights are about to take to the ice for their inaugural season.
What does this all mean to the Las Vegas? The NFL? The NHL? The world of sports in general? Rick Rosen headed over to the Wynn Race and Sports Book to talk with one of the most respected odds-maker in Las Vegas and a long time friend of Rick’s, Johnny Avello, for his take on it all.
For those who believe the Las Vegas population can’t support two professional sports teams, it may not need to. This is Vegas and a lot of sports fans would love to have a reason to come to Las Vegas to see their home team play against a Las Vegas team and fill the seats.

- What about the new UNLV football coach, Tony Sanchez, can he hang on until the team moves into the new stadium?
Since Rick has John’s time, he hits him up about the upcoming Kentucky Derby, the triple crown plus other sports tips.
