The Dowd report did find one instance in which he bet on baseball but not on the Reds. Maybe he used another bookie that has never been heard from. It's more likely that he just didn't bet on the Reds that night. Picking and choosing your spots when betting on a team you run is not far removed from betting against them outright.
