I caught wind about “Life On The Line” earlier this week listening to Teddy Covers on the radio. “Life On The Line” is a documentary on sports bettors and the sports betting industry (at least LVH sportsbook). “Life On The Line” won’t be in theaters and it won’t be available on Netflix but you can download and stream the movie from the Las Vegas Vegas Advisor website beginning January 27. Here’s how they describe the movie.
With unprecedented access behind the scenes at LVH’s “SuperBook” and featuring a cast of legends from the Las Vegas sport-betting world, including long-time Hilton/LVH oddsmaker Jay Kornegay, two-time Supercontest champion Steve Fezzik, hedge-fund manager John Netto, long-time Vegas pro-bettors including Erin Rynning, Teddy Covers, Bryan Leonard, Bruce Marshall, and Alf Musketa, and well-known local sports talk radio hosts Brian Blessing and Ken Thompson, Life on the Line promises to take viewers deep inside the esoteric and usually closed world of that rare breed of gambler who’s able to make a successful living betting sports.
The website doesn’t have prices for download or stream but I think Teddy Covers mentioned it would be only $5, but don’t hold me to that. The trailer looks like this will be an interesting movie if you’re into sports, sports betting and Las Vegas. I like all of those things and I look forward to checking this out.
