Used to go to Boulder Station sportsbook when I lived in Vegas-they had the Covers print sheets available (probably still do). Went home and checked out the website on my pc.

I googled "backdoor" and "action" and covers was on the top of the page.
 
I wasn't looking for a gambling forum at the time, but, opened the link anyway

Had some degenerate friends that worked at Hi Tops in Chicago.  They used to go to the site. Since then I've been here.  Been here around 6 years
