This page gives you a tour of the inner workings of ViewFromVegas.com.
Tuley the Journalist is where Dave Tuley posts a blog with some of his columns, always with a view of the sports betting world here in Las Vegas and how oddsmakers view upcoming events and how games played out in relation to the spread.
Tuley the Tout is where Dave Tuley will take off his "press" hat and post his sports and horse racing selections. They will be free selections, and hopefully worth a lot more than their price.
Tuley in Other Media is where you can find links to other stories that Dave Tuley has written (he's currently writing a Saturday column for the Daily Racing Form, or stories written about him. There's also a link to find a weekly podcast for the "Against the Spread" radio show hosted by Marc Lawrence in which Dave has a ViewFromVegas segment, and more will be added soon.
Vegas Football Contests provides the most in-depth coverage that can be found anywhere on this city's high-end handicapping contests, including selections from the leaders and consensus plays from all contestants, plus recaps after the weekend's games are done.
Oddsmakers' View gives bettors a behind-the-scenes look at some of the ways oddsmakers' set the lines and well as other insights. Each week, we'll post the Oddsmakers' Polls from Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which is usually more indicative of the relative strength of all the teams compared to the traditional writers' and coaches' polls.
Odds and Ends is where future-book odds can be found on horse racing and other sports. Also during the fall, while you can find this week's football odds at a lot of sites, ViewFromVegas.com gives you a sneak peak at the following week's NFL games from the Las Vegas Hilton.
ViewFromVegas Forums is where you can post your own opinions on sports (including your own picks) or ask questions of Dave Tuley or other posters.
Surfing the Site. Well, you're here, so hopefully no explanation necessary.
Guest Book is for those who don't plan to join the Forums but want to say hello or give confidential feedback on the site.

Contact Us is pretty standard for websites. What we hope is different is that we plan to be more accessible than most sites where you send a message and feel like it's gone into a blackhole in cyber space.
