"We'll probably do as much money as we do on Super Bowl Sunday and the ticket count is way up from Thursday to Sunday because people bet smaller, but just about every game," Jimmy Vaccaro, director of sports operations at Lucky's Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas, said in a phone interview.

Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered Las Vegas' most influential bookmaker, serves as Director of Sports Operations and Public Relations for Lucky's. Vaccaro's storied career in the sports betting business traces back more than 30 years after he moved from his native Pittsburgh to Las Vegas and took a job as a blackjack dealer at the Royal Inn in 1975. Soon after, he was chosen to open and run the Royal Inn's first sports book. From there, Vaccaro helped open the sports book at the Barbary Coast on the Vegas Strip in 1979. Six years later, Kirk Kerkorian recruited Vaccaro to open up the sports book at the MGM Grand.
In 1987, Vaccaro hooked up with Steve Wynn to manage the book at the Golden Nugget.
Wynn then chose Vaccaro to open and manage the new sports book at the Mirage.
In 2003, Vaccaro left Las Vegas to open the race and sports book at the Atlantis on Paradise Island, Bahamas. In 2009, he went to Delaware for the launch of the state's sports lottery. Vaccaro is a frequently quoted expert on sports betting in the national media and has been featured on ABC, Bloomberg, CBS, CNN, ESPN and NBC TV and The New York Times. The Las Vegas Review-Journal called Vaccaro "the most influential linesmaker of the past 20 years. Follow Jimmy on Twitter - @JimmyVaccaro

"You'd have two storied programs and almost five weeks of buildup," said Jimmy Vaccaro, a spokesman for William Hill U.S., which represents 150 sports books in Nevada. "The intrigue about it is going to make it a monster."
While the Nevada Gaming Control Board doesn't track the total amount bet on individual college football games, Vaccaro projects a Notre Dame-Alabama matchup might draw between $20 million and $25 million in in-state wagers.
"There's still this great love/hate relationship with Notre Dame and that's actually carrying over to Alabama," Vaccaro said.
