    Radio host Sid Rosenberg alleged to have sports gambling debts of $44,500


    An operative of a Costa Rica-based website has been in South Florida for two months to try to talk WQAM-560 AM afternoon host Sid Rosenberg into making good on an alleged $44,500 in gambling debts.


    Frank Soviero, who says he works for www.1betvegas.com, tells Gossip Extra that Rosenberg lost on dozens of NFL, MLB, WNBA, NHL and college football games in just two weeks.


    Soviero said he called station General Manager Joe Bell to complain. To no avail.


    Rosenberg and his producer did not return repeated calls seeking comment. Bell declined to comment.


    “We can’t sue Sid since what we do is illegal in the United States,” Soviero said recently at Gulfstream Park. “I’ve tried everything. He comes up with 100 bucks here and there, and he gives me a big hug.


    “It ticks me off because I talked my boss into giving Sid a few chances. And I’ve seen [my boss] do things when he gets mad.”


    U.S. authorities believe that bets over the Internet are illegal and say the foreign-based sites are sometimes Mafia-run.


    Soviero’s story comes as Rosenberg is back behind his microphone after a six-week suspension connected to his alleged gambling with another website.


    Soviero said he first met Rosenberg one Sunday in October. Because he was recommended by another 1betvegas.com user, Soviero said the website extended Rosenberg a $25,000 credit.


    “He put $6,000 on the 4 p.m. NFL games that day. ... He was betting on 10 to 15 games a day. He put $1,000 on the first-half score of a Tampa Bay game. Nobody does that.”


    Soviero said he put Rosenberg on a payment plan. Rosenberg gave him $900 last month but he said Rosenberg, with tears in his eyes, told him it was money he had saved to take his children to Disney World.


    “I mean Sid no harm, but if he had won $20,000, he’d have expected, and received, the money on the spot.”

    I didn't even know the bookies would take a WNBA bet. They have to get money on both sides to profit from the juice in the long run. How many WNBA gamblers could there be out there?

    I dont know much about gambling but I was under the impression WNBA games were easy money, same thing with euro league basketball.
