Dozens of friends and fans of Malinsky’s Las Vegas sports opinions that are handicapping out their condolences and memories on the page.
Malinsky is best-known in the Las Vegas community that is sports-betting hosting the Stardust Line radio show at the old Stardust Casino. The radio program ran for 25 years, and just came to end when the resort shuttered in 2006. The Stardust Line basically created the sports betting radio genre in Las Vegas.
More recently, Malinsky appeared in the Las Vegas Stats & Ideas Network (VSiN), the recreations betting network led by famed broadcaster Brent Musburger.

Fellow Handicapper Grieves
Ted Sevransky, a friend that is close of who is really a handicapper at SportsMemo.com, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that David ended up being ‘exemplary in everything that he did.’ He added that Malinsky was exceptionally skilled in connecting with the average bettor, and explaining rather complex chances in layman’s terms.
Sevransky included that he spoke with Malinsky on a daily basis.
‘I’ll miss his insights. I already miss his insights. I had a terrible week,’ Sevransky told CBS Las Vegas.
Malinsky is considered to have fallen 30 feet off a cliff during icy conditions. Though the climate in Las Vegas is now heating up — with day-to-day highs to the 90s — the North Loop Trail on which Malinsky was hiking reaches elevations because high as almost 12,000 legs during the peak, and stays cold all year.
Ironically, a warning on birdandhike.com — a site focused on hiking on the outskirts of Sin City — has this to say about that area: ‘… this trail traverses narrow ledges with some serious exposure out near Devil’s Thumb. While the hiking is safe, be careful along these sections you make it (either coming or going), and a stumble could be your final. as you will be exhausted by enough time’

The Vegas Golden Knights have actually already made history. They truly are just the sixth team in the Big Four (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL) since 1960 to make the playoffs in their inaugural period.
After being provided that 500/1 ahead of this first drop of the puck, the Golden Knights went 51-24 during the regular period, and scored the fifth-most points (109) of this league’s 31 teams.
ESPN’s David Purdum, who covers gambling for the sports network, happens to be tweeting numerous wagers from Las Vegas sportsbooks about what type of losses casinos are evaluating should the Golden Knights end up being the final team standing.
William Hill states its two largest futures were placed in October. One was a $200 bet on 200/1 chances that will net the gambler $40,000. A $1,000 wager placed later that month at 50/1 odds would net $50,000.
At the Westgate SuperBook, oddsmakers state they took 13 bets at 500/1 on Las Vegas to go all the way. The line is implied chances of just 0.20 percent. Even a $10 bet would spend $5,000.
The Golden Knights made fast work of the opening series foe. Vegas swept the Los Angeles Kings 4-0, and now go to the second round where they will have fun with the San Jose Sharks.
The SuperBook has Vegas favored for the best-of-seven series at -140, and San Jose at +120. A $100 bet on the Golden Knights nets $71 and change.
Viva Las Vegas?
The Golden Knights have already surpassed all expectations for the year that is first. Las vegas’ first Big Four expert sports team, the expansion franchise has brought a flush of money to Strip and Nevada sportsbooks on a sport that typically doesn’t receive substantial activity compared to football, baseball, and basketball.
The hysteria around town was prevalent in front of the Golden Knights’ first playoff gaming from the Kings at T-Mobile Arena near the Strip. Fans packed an outdoor concert area hours before the game.
But before Las Vegans get their first sports name parade, several teams stand in their method.
They will need to get by the Sharks, and then the winner of the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets to help make the Stanley Cup Finals and face a more than formidable opponent. The teams remaining within the East include the Tampa Bay Lightning and defending that is two-time Pittsburgh Penguins.
Steve Wynn Still Under Scrutiny, Says Massachusetts Gaming Commission

The casino that is embattled resigned as CEO and chairman of Wynn Resorts in February in the wake of a Wall Street Journal article that accused him of a long pattern of sexual misconduct against female employees.
Dealing with certification suitability investigations in several jurisdictions, he later sold his majority that is entire stake the company, as the board sought to safeguard its gaming licenses by severing all ties to its founder.
But the MGC — which is reexamining Wynn Resorts’ suitability for licensing in Boston, where it is building its $2.4 million Wynn Boston Harbor — isn’t done with Wynn at this time.
Wynn and Wynn Resorts passed suitability that is licensing before they won the sole east Massachusetts casino license in 2014 after a hard-fought competitive bidding process with Mohegan Sun. But Wynn’s alleged failure to declare a $7.5 million settlement to a Wynn Resorts manicurist who claimed assault that is sexual the regulator to revisit the situation.
Wynn Reputation become Decided
In a letter dated March 27, Wynn’s attorney asserted that the divestiture of Wynn’s shares precluded him from further scrutiny and that he would no longer react to requests for information from the commission.
‘As Mr. Wynn is no further a qualifier of any commission licensee, there is no longer any regulatory or justification that is statutory continue the payment’s inquiry into Mr. Wynn’s suitability as being a qualifier associated with commission,’ said Wynn’s attorney. ‘The commission no longer has jurisdiction over Mr. Wynn — he is really a private Nevada citizen unaffiliated with Wynn Resorts LLC or any payment licensee.’
But in line with the nevada Review-Journal, the MGC has scheduled a hearing for might by which they’ll seek to find out whether Wynn has truly removed himself from the ongoing company and whether or not he remains a ‘qualifier’ in the licensing process.
‘The payment’s decision at the hearing will not end the current investigation by the Investigation Enforcement Bureau as to your allegations of intimate harassment and misconduct against Steve Wynn or the handling of these allegations by Wynn Resorts Ltd. as well as its officers and directors,’ said the MGC. ‘The hearing will also maybe not give consideration to whether other employees, board members, investors or other companies that are wynn remain as qualifiers.’
Elaine Wynn Accuses Hagenbuch
Meanwhile, Elaine Wynn — now the major shareholder of Wynn Resorts after her estranged ex-husband’s departure from the company — has needed the reduction of John Hagenbuch from the board, one of three directors involved in Wynn Resorts own internal investigation of Steve Wynn’s alleged behavior.
She claimed in a filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that Hagenbuch’s loyalties are too closely aligned with her ex-husband.
Last week, Wynn Resorts directors rebuffed Ms. Wynn’s interest in a complete overhaul of the board to revive the business’s reputation. Instead, the board nominated three women of their own choosing for election at the company’s forthcoming AGM.
