Sportsbooks on TV: Inside The World of The 'Linemakers'
Linemakers, a behind-the-scenes look at the men and women who set the lines at sportsbooks, premiered late last Friday night on HD Theater.
The reality show is described as "veteran sports book operators analyzing the economics of the sports wagering and fantasy sports industries." There isn't much information available on the show beyond that, but from what we've been able to piece together from various message boards, it seems as if the first episode was a documentary style look into rudimentary sports betting for the masses with some scenes taking place at the South Point.
Once we finally found HDT on our TiVo, we immediately set our season pass for future shows as well as recording a replay of the first episode. We don't really mind if the show is very generic because that will make us feel as smart as we think we are. If we learn something from the show, that will be great, too. Ultimately it's just more Vegas on TV and we like that.
The second episode airs tonight at 8 p.m. EST on HD Theater. If you missed the debut, the first episode is still airing, too.
