Why did the elusive Walters finally agree to appear?
Walters said he wanted to get some things off his chest about Las Vegas and gambling, to let the rest of the country know that legal gambling is far more honest than the massive fraud that is so common on Wall Street he accurately tells 8 News Now.
What influence has he had on today’s gamblers? Joe Duffy, widely agreed as the top professional sports handicapper today, says that Walters domination had him utilizing computer software for his entire quarter-century plus in handicapping.
“It started with Pointspread Analyzer software, written by a college professor Dr. Mike Orkin,” says Duffy. “Today I utilize all the good ones. FoxSheets and Sportsdatabase for systems, and TeamRankings and Accuscore top the list for predictions software, while the MasseyRatings are the most accurate power ratings.”
Stevie Vincent, the founder of forensic sports handicapping says he will be watching. “You are never too old to learn from the veterans.”
