Each week on the Vegas Stats and Information Network show on Sirius Satellite Radio with Brent Musberger they bring on a mystery guest to discuss their picks in the Westgate Super Contest. The handicapper who’s mysteriously known as Insider Trading #1 and Insider Trading #2 in the Las Vegas betting challenge is James Salinas of Las Vegas, Nevada.
As of this writing he is in 114th place in the contest with a total of 21 points. His high point was in week 5 when he went 4-1 and was in 45th place overall. That week he picked the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at plus 5.5 points (winner), the Los Angeles Chargers at plus 3.5 points (winner), the Cincinnati Bengals -3 points (winner) the Miami Dolphins +3 points (winner), and pushed with the Houston Texans loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night football. In week 7 he took the biggest hit with a 1-4 record winning with only the Cleveland Browns and losing with this picks for the Atlanta Falcons, Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, and the Bengals. His overall record so far with Insider Trading 1 is 21-14 with a 60% winning percentage. The season is not even close to over with so we have plenty of time to see how things shake out for this reclusive handicapper.
