Paul Attner, or "Paulstradamus" as we call him at the palatial Only A Game offices is in Miami this weekend for the Super Bowl XLI between the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears.

The Smart Money
Las Vegas sports books will be humming Super Bowl weekend, the biggest weekend of the year. Many gamblers will win but even more will lose as the sports books always seem to come out on top.

Michael Konik's new book "The Smart Money" chronicles the author's time he spent working with the Brain Trust. Konik joins Bill from the studios of NPR West in Los Angeles.
