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

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

The teams remaining into the East include the Tampa Bay Lightning and two-time defending champion Pittsburgh Penguins.
