It’s amazing that I sit here Sunday at 5:15 am pacific time, and none of the off-shore sports books have driver matchups for Phoenix, a race that starts in less than seven hours from now. Here in Las Vegas, the Hilton has matchups posted all week, they adjust the matchups after practice and then re-open them early Saturday Friday evening. Sounds like an easy enough thing to do. I don’t understand the logic of shutting down business for such a long period of time -- waiting until one book puts their foot in the water -- in driver matchups. It’s funny that I often hear how Las Vegas Sports Books are way behind the curve of what off-shore is doing and yet they are light years behind Vegas in this area. What is the wait for? The final practice ended Friday afternoon and qualifying ended Saturday at 2 pm.
I'll have odds to win picks posted earlier from now on and play their wait game on matchups.
