Vegas woman specializes in betting on college football
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2012 -- A Las Vegas cocktail waitress with a passion for her alma mater’s football team has found a place in the world of sports handicapping.
In a field traditionally dominated by men, Kelly Stewart has proven she can make winning picks. It does not hurt that her looks get attention, too.
“She’s obviously attractive and opinionated,” Pat Williams, vice president of media and communications at DonBest.com, told The Kansas City Star. “She’s not a cute girl reading off a teleprompter. These are her games.”
DonBest.com is a handicapping service. It also produces “Hottie3some” videos featuring Stewart that are seen on YouTube.
“My camera guy’s used to working with sweaty 50-year-old men in suits. Their day is highlighted working with her,” Williams said.
Stewart, 28 and a Kansas State graduate, hits 67% with her picks. She writes a betting column in the Las Vegas Review-Journal and has her own website. And 3,000 Twitter followers get her betting picks from @kellyinvegas. She works as a cocktail waitress in a club at the Bellagio.
The videos she has made for Don Best have earned her credibility but little else, as she does not get paid for them. In each episode, she features three college football games, although she admits she is partial to K-State.
“I’m biased in this game,” she told The Star. “Fine. I am, so shoot me.”
Her best win was Sept. 22, when she bet $100 on Kansas State over Oklahoma, Oregon State over UCLA and Rutgers over Arkansas. Her cash-out was $8,452.
Among four “Hottie3some” videos, she has come in under .500 only once. Williams, of Don Best, expresses his pride.
“I told her if she went 2-1 every week, she’d be a superstar. She’s very smart,” he said.
For now, Stewart is not charging to make her picks.
“I’m just going to ride the wave,” she said. “I’m having fun and making money. I told my mom I wouldn’t be a 30-year-old cocktail waitress.”
