At BK’s Golf Services, we know how to pick ’em. Whether its finding you the perfect Las Vegas golf courses or connecting you with the perfect hotels, our detailed selection process has made us famous. But being able to pick winners has made us successful at more than just helping Las Vegas golf enthusiasts. Our selection process took center stage this month when we won the Las Vegas Hilton Casino NFL SuperContest.
The contest, which pitted us against 516 rivals in the Hilton’s largest-ever entry field, required us to pick 5 NFL games against the spread. From a $1500 investment, company founder Brady Kannon and his team—known in the contest as Sans Souci won the grand prize of $320,200 with a record 60.5 points. They went 58-22-5, hitting at a 72.5 percent clip and winning by 2½ points over Pagermager, who settled for the second-place prize of $124,080 after going 56-25-4 (69 percent).
This victory has given us a lot of coverage on ESPN Insider and various gambling blogs. What most reporters saw in our team’s winning strategy was our ability to work together as a team to make picks.
“We’re a diverse group, so we all have a different point of view and way of handicapping, so we didn’t have all favorites or all underdogs but a nice mix every week,” Kannon told Dave Tuley, in his column for ESPN this week. The rest of the team consisted of Robert Oseland, 45, a former casino executive at Wynn Resorts who left his post early in 2011; James Gallo, 42, an attorney and Las Vegas native; and Paul Caruso, 40, also a native who owns Express Bail Bonds.
The victory has also drawn a lot of attention from Las Vegas golf club members, NFL fans and gamblers from across the country on social media sites like Twitter. Our Twitter account, @lasvegasgolfer, has received thousands of hits in the past few days and we are excited to show people the best golf Las Vegas has to offer, as well as connecting people with services across the strip and maybe a few winning football picks too.
