    Despite neither being the actual title favorite, LeBron’s LA Lakers and the Boston Celtics are taking the most bets to win the NBA championship this season. According to David Purdum at ESPN, the Lakers and Celtics have “drawn more than three times as many bets” as any other team. The Houston Rockets are a distant third. Proximity may matter somewhat for the wagering. The Lakers, historically a team wagered heavily in Vegas, have the most bets placed on them in Sin City. FanDuel Sportsbook in Ne...

    It’s an interesting time of year in the sports betting realm.

For approximately the subsequent two weeks (depending on how long the World Series goes), it’s a sports betting fan’s (and sportsbook’s) delight — all three major sports are playing meaningful, wagerable gam...

    A year ago, the Los Angeles Rams took the league by storm. Rookie head coach Sean McVay introduced a brand-new system to LA and worked wonders with a team Jeff Fisher struggled to even keep competitive. McVay’s arrival opened things up for Jared Goff’s growth and appropriately featured the team’s top talent, running back Todd Gurley. With a talented defense allowed to breathe a little more, the Rams formed a balanced and explosive attack that finished 11-5 and stole first place in the NFC West.

    Poker is an interesting game because it involves two elements. One is skill, and the other is luck. The skill element is made up of making good decisions. But even if you make good decisions, you can still lose. This makes it such a great game. A pure game of skill, like chess, doesn’t have a random element. Neither does billiards. It’s entirely skill-based. But if the chess pieces had minds of their own and moved at random after you chose a piece, or if the balls on the pool table could think a...

    The race for the 2018 NFL MVP is a fluid one. Before the season started, it looked to be a two-man race between Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers to be this year’s most valuable player. If you wanted to toss Todd Gurley or Antonio Brown’s hat into the ring, nobody would bat an eye. Not many others were considered as realistic contenders, though. A week or two in, the rise of Patrick Mahomes had taken the league over. Five weeks deep, his hold hasn’t weakened, as most football betting sites list him as...

    Getting off to a hot start in the NFL is usually essential for a team to enjoy a great year and at least make the playoffs. In a league where a 10-6 finish doesn’t always guarantee you a trip to postseason play, dropping 2-3 losses on the schedule in the first few weeks can be lethal. Avoiding those trappy losses and building your way to a record above .500 in the first quarter of the year doesn’t guarantee a thing, however. In fact, depending on your division and conference, simply keeping your...

    Last month I went out on a limb and published a (poker-themed) piece of fiction in Two Plus Two Magazine. I wrote it primarily as a standalone story, though it admittedly concluded in an open-ended way. I was pleasantly surprised by how many encouraging comments I received and how many people expressed interest in hearing more from Walter Tine. So, I wrote a sequel, and this time I did deliberately write it to be part of a series, though I hope it will also read reasonably well as a standalone.
