Lucky's will post betting lines on the UFL

13 August 2009

LAS VEGAS, Nevada –- At least one sports book operator said he will post lines on the fledgling United Football League when play begins Oct. 8.

Joe Asher, president of Brandywine Bookmaking, which operates 11 sports books under the Lucky's brand in Nevada, said a betting line will be available when the Las Vegas Locomotives host the California Redwoods at Sam Boyd Stadium in the upstart league's inaugural game.

Asher said he was happy to read the comments of UFL Commissioner Michael Huyghue, who said the new league, unlike the NFL, would welcome gambling on its games.

Since the four-team league's rosters are still being set, it's unclear, Asher said, when the first UFL line will be posted.

Lucky's operates the sports books at the Plaza, Terrible's, and the three Primm casinos in Clark County. Asher expects to add a 12th location, the Pioneer in Laughlin, in time for football season.
