    Default CNBC show about sports betting tout likely profiles a fraudster

    Great story today on Business Insider about CNBC's new sports betting show "Money Talks," which profiles a tout going by the name Steve Stevens is most likely actually a man named Darin Notaro who was arrested in 1999 for telemarketing schemes.

    And the odds of his claim of being able to pick correctly against the spread 70% of the time? About 1 in a trillion, apparently.

    But if CNBC is looking for viewers, Buzzy is adding this show to his TiVo schedule tonight, so congrats on that, CNBC.

    Looks like quite a few of the touts are exposing them as well as you can see from an SBR forum that I cant seem to find now but it listed these stories talking about the odds of hitting those numbers and the background behind stevens who seems to be overly agressive in his cubicle:
