If you’re a football fan, you’ve likely bet on a game before. But have you ever thought about the mechanics behind the sports betting industry? CNBC is pulling back the curtains on this high stakes world of high risk high reward in an eight-episode docu-series called Money Talks, which premieres this Wednesday March 19th at 10p ET/PT.
The show follows Steve Stevens, a sports handicapper who runs VIP Sports in Las Vegas. The self-proclaimed ‘Michael Jordan’ of sports handicapping, Stevens claims his picks are right over 60% of the time. Each episode follows Stevens and his agents who sell their picks to gamblers looking for any kind of edge, from small-time bettors to big-time whales who can wager as much as six figures on a single game.

Personally, I’m pretty interested in this show, and you’d better believe that I’ll be tuning in this Wednesday night.
