  • Betting On Minor League Baseball In Vegas Is Back, But Books Aren’t Taking Much Action new
    Nevada sportsbooks are allowed to take wagers on professional baseball games played in the state for the first time in more than 30 years. Two Las Vegas sportsbook operators are now taking wagers on the minor league team located in Sin City. Just before the minor league baseball season started, the Nevada Gaming Commission abolished a rule from 1985 that banned sportsbooks from accepting wagers on any professional baseball team or professional baseball game played in Nevada. Nevada is home to tw...

  • Sportsbooks Commemorate NFL Schedule By Revealing Early Week 1 Lines
    The NFL may have its fair share of warts. But say this for the nearly 100-year league: It knows how to keep itself relevant year-round. And legalized sports betting, which the NFL ironically railed against for many years, should lend a significant helping hand moving forward. As much was evident on April 17 when the release of the league’s official 2019 schedule was piggybacked by another relevant set of numbers — Week 1 NFL lines at New Jersey sportsbooks.

  • Once At 200/1 To Win Champions League, Ajax Continues Odds-Defying Run Into Semis
    Is it time for oddsmakers to give Ajax more respect? With consecutive Champions League knock-out round wins over Real Madrid and Juventus, the Dutch club has been on what some consider a Cinderella run for the ages. However, Ajax’s overall quality of form has not lined up with oddsmaker’s perception of them. Ajax’s “unlikely” run Ajax has been inside or right around the top 10 in global club rankings since the start of Champions League group play. At that point in September, they were 100/1 on D...

    The NHL playoffs are filled with upsets, but the Tampa Bay Lightning losing in the first round is one of the biggest surprises in NHL history. The Lightning won the Presidents’ Trophy this year with the best regular season record and most points in the league. Tampa Bay won 62 games and piled up 128 points, which was 21 points clear of both Boston and Calgary. The Bruins and Flames were also bigger favorites and trail in their opening round series 2-1 as of Wednesday. The 62 wins by the Lightnin...

  • Cardinals Barely Making A Peep, But Oddsmakers Seem Convinced Kyler Murray Will Go To Arizona
    If it has to do with Kyler Murray, it’s probably hard to pin down. Plenty of defensive players can vouch for that. But his evasiveness isn’t just limited to the football field. Just ask Texas AandM University. And most recently, the jilted Oakland Athletics. Given his knack for swerves, plunking down some cash on whether Murray is nabbed with the top pick in the NFL Draft later this month by the Arizona Cardinals might seem like a risky proposition. Yet there seems to be some certainty developin...

  • Sheridan: Are Harden’s Over/Under Scoring Props Too High Against Utah?
    James Harden put up 29 points in Game 1 of the Utah-Houston series despite the Jazz forcing him to his right hand. Going forward, we should probably expect more of the same strategy … and Harden’s over/under for points on Wednesday has been set at 34.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook. Is that too high? Harden scored 35 or more points 45 times during the regular season, and he topped the 35-point mark four times in the postseason a year ago as the Rockets made it all the way to Game 7 of the Western Con...

    Sports fans and bettors that went to bed early Monday night were in for a shock Tuesday morning. The Golden State Warriors blew a 31-point lead and lost to the Los Angeles Clippers, 135-131. Some bettors who did stay up had the foresight to place some money on LA’s historic comeback before it came to fruition. What happened? The Warriors led the Clippers by 23 points at halftime, 73-50. The only thing not going the Warriors way was DeMarcus Cousins leaving in the first quarter with a torn quad m...

  • Tiger Woods Bettor’s $1.2 Million Masters Win Is A Cautionary Tale If True
    James Adducci, a 39-year-old from Wisconsin, made his first ever (that we know of) sports bet Tuesday, April 9. Like many, many, many other Americans, he bet on Tiger Woods to win the Masters. Unlike many other Americans, Adduci wagered $85,000 on Woods at 14/1 odds. Woods’ victory earned Adducci $1,275,000 ($1.19M + his original wager). And despite it being the biggest golf payout in their history, William Hill has never been happier. The story almost defies belief, however. And if Adducci’s st...

Action folds to Alice who raises to $30 with Q♥ J♥ from middle position and gets called by Bob from the BB. Alice has played with Bob and knows he is a p...
