NASCAR driver betting odds to win 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race in Bristol

I don’t get all the favoritism for Kevin Harvick as he has only won two races this season and both were back in March at Las Vegas and Phoenix. Matt Kenseth – 6 to 1

Denny Hamlin won at Martinsville in March and he won the NASCAR All-Star Race in May for two wins in 2015. Kasey Kahne – 30 to 1

Kurt Busch has wins in 2015 at Richmond and Michigan. Kyle Larson has yet to win a Sprint Cup race in 62 starts so he has obviously never won over the track.

T-6. He’s probably due to win a race real soon and to me he’s a better bet this week than Kevin Harvick is at 6 to 1 odds.

T-1. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. For his career, Kurt Busch has 27 wins in 527 NASCAR Sprint Cup starts.

T-6. Truex, Jr. Jeff Gordon, Kyle Larson – 18 to 1 odds each

T-18. Hamlin won this race in 2012, for his only win over the Bristol track. Many of these drivers have yet to win the race and most of the others are very infrequent winners. has yet to win a Sprint Cup race so far in his career at Bristol. Kenseth just won last week at Michigan pretty easily for his second win in three weeks (he won a Pocono August 2) and third win on the season. For his career, Kevin Harvick has won 30 races in 525 starts.

Brad Keselowski has one win this season which came at California in March. Clint Bowyer has won eight times in 348 starts and he has not won a race since 2012. won at Pocono back in June for his only win so far in the 2015 NASCAR season. Tony Stewart – 60 to 1

For the umpteenth time this year, Kevin Harvick is favored to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup race as he’s co-favored to win the 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race this week at odds of 6 to 1. At least Danica Patrick is hot.

Field of all other drivers – 100 to 1 odds

T-11. Clint Bowyer, Jamie McMurray – 40 to 1

While I don’t understand Kevin Harvick’s odds this week, I do get why Matt Kenseth is co-favored at odds of 6 to 1. has wins this season at Talladega and Daytona. Martin Truex, Jr. Jimmie Johnson – 10 to 1

Carl Edwards lone win so far in 2015 came at Charlotte in May. Keselowski won this race in 2011 and he has two NASCAR Sprint Cup wins over the track (his other win was in 2012). For his career, Brad Keselowski has 17 wins in 220 starts.

Both Clint Bowyer and Jamie McMurray at 40 to 1 odds each this week are looking for their first wins in 2015. A.J. For his career, Kasey Kahne has won 17 races in 419 Sprint Cup starts(www.thai-m88.com).

T-6. Junior won this race in 2004 for his only win over the track. Carl Edwards has two wins in this race (2007, 2008) and three total wins over the track (2014). – 20 to 1

Kasey Kahne has yet to win a NASCAR Sprint Cup race in the 2015 season. For his NASCAR Sprint Cup career, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. For his career, Joey Logano has 10 wins in 242 starts.

In addition to listing the m88a betting win odds for each driver this week, I’m also listing how many times each driver has won this season, how many times each driver has won this race and how many times each driver has won at Bristol in Sprint Cup races. Brad Keselowski – 7 to 1

None of these drivers at 100 to 1 odds each this week has won a race yet in 2015, though, Greg Biffle did win the Sprint Showdown. Allmendinger, Aric Almirola, Austin Dillon, Casey Mears, Danica Patrick, David Ragan, Greg Biffle, Paul Menard, Ricky Stenhouse, Ryan Blaney, Ryan Newman, Trevor Bayne – 100 to 1 odds

Both Jeff Gordon and Kyle Larson are win less on the 2015 season. Kurt Busch has one win in this race (2003) and he’s won over the track five times (2002-04, 2006) but his last win here was in 2006. I’ve also listed the career stats for many of the drivers this week. Kahne is also win less in this race but he did win a race over the Bristol track in 2013. Another tough bet this week. Joey Logano – 7 to 1. – 15 to 1

T-1. Kevin Harvick – 6 to 1 odds

Kyle Busch’s 6 to 1 odds this week also make sense. Gordon is in his last full season in NASCAR in 2015. His first win this season was at the spring race at Bristol. McMurray has won seven times in 461 starts and he has not won since 2013.

Martin Truex, Jr. Good luck to all the NASCAR drivers and especially the bettors this week at the 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol!

T-4. Stewart won this race back in 2001 for his only win at Bristol. Kenseth has won this race three times (2005, 2006, 2013) and he’s won over the track four times, so he’s co-favored for a reason to try and sweep the races at Bristol in 2015.

10. Kurt Busch – 10 to 1

Tony Stewart has yet to win a race in the 2015 season. He has only won this race once (2002) but he does have five total wins over the Bristol track. Jimmie Johnson has yet to win this race and he has just one win (2010) over the track but it’s been 10 races now since he has won and he’s 10 to 1 odds this week. has won 25 races in 564 starts.

14. Tony Stewart has won 48 times in 577 starts in his career, and he has not won a race since 2013.

The 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race NASCAR Sprint Cup race is taking place this week on Saturday, August 22, 2015, at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee, with a start time of 7:30 pm EDT. For his NASCAR Sprint Cup career, Denny Hamlin has 25 wins in 349 starts.

9. Kyle Busch – 6 to 1

13. Jeff Gordon’s last win at Bristol, though, was in 2002. Harvick has never won this race but he did win over the track back in 2005. For his career, Carl Edwards has won 24 NASCAR Sprint Cup races in 396 starts.

Jimmie Johnson has four wins in 2015 at Atlanta, Texas, Kansas City and Dover. Neither driver has ever won at Bristol so both are risky bets this week even at high odds. For his career, Martin Truex, Jr. Carl Edwards – 10 to 1

T-1. Kyle Busch also has two wins in this race (2009, 2010) and five Sprint Cup wins over the Bristol track (he also won the spring race in 2007, 2009, 2011).

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. He won at Watkins Glen a couple of weeks ago, and he also won the Daytona 500 back in February. has won three races in 356 starts.

T-4. Kyle Busch has four wins this season at Sonoma, Kentucky, New Hampshire, and The Brickyard, and all four wins have come over the last two months. Denny Hamlin – 12 to 1

Joey Logano has two wins in 2015. Here is a list of the betting odds for the NASCAR drivers to win the 2015 Irwin Tools Night Race this week at Bristol.

17. T-15. Joey Logano is also the defending champion in the Irwin Tools Night Race as he won the race last year in 2014. None of them have ever won a NASCAR Sprint Cup race at the Bristol track either

How To Win At Sports Betting

by: Ellison Mansfield

 

If you’ve read any of my articles before, you know I always emphasize the fact that there are many viable systems for any type of gambling. Until next time, please bet responsibly, and continue to educate yourself to master your skills and gain the edge over the casino, the bookie, or whoever you’re playing m88a against!

Ellison Mansfield

A point can be anything, 1 or 2 etc. The three numbers I gave you have proved themselves to be quite consistent at attracting the score of 1-1 (One all). . Sports betting is no exclusion. For this example we will choose number 32. After holding onto these secrets and amassing a private fortune over the past 16 years, he finally decided it was time to come out and share some of his knowledge with the world. Yes it’s true: Ellison Mansfield has made a career out of gambling. The following is recommended;

- Weeks 1 to 5 use a 1 point stake.

- Weeks 6 to 8 use a 2 point stake. This would win us back 11 points at odds of 11/2, plus our 2 points stake, making 13 points. Here is just one simple system for you to test for yourself…

As you can see, this system played consistently over the long term can bring you regular winnings. If we assume that we have a win on week 6 we would have placed a 2 points bet here. During the previous 5 weeks we lost 5 lots of 1 points, so all in all weve made 8 points profit.

With this bet you will need to increase your stake after a few weeks if you havent won by then.

- Weeks 9 to 10 use a 3 point stake.

- Week 11 – 4 points

- Week 12 – 5 points

- Week 13 – 6 points

- Week 14 – 7 points

- Week 15 – 8 points

- Week 16 – 10 points

- Week 17 – 12 points and so on….

Take your fixed odds coupon and decide on one of the following three numbers – 13 – 32 – 38. He’s flown under the radar for virtually his entire adult life, beating the casinos and stockpiling his winnings. I’ve tested and found success with several sports betting systems (see http://www.insidersystem.com/sports.html), several of which would allow someone to quit their job and make a full time living at it. Once you have made your choice place the score of 1-1 in the correct score section next to the teams that are playing at number 32 on the coupon for that week.

We simply back this number every week until we have a win

Report: Fantasy sports employees used insider info to bet

He said the casino industry sees fantasy fun788 sports as a potential partner “to grow both of our businesses.”

The allegations, which amount to profiting from insider trading, have brought into question the practices of the fantasy sports industry. Macias said the company takes a multilayered approach to check age and identity. The CEO of the ubiquitous DraftKings website made no effort to get cozy as he sat in front of a crowd of casino executives at a trade show last week in Las Vegas.

The debate comes as the websites have flooded the airwaves with commercials in recent months touting how average fans became overnight millionaires by playing daily fantasy leagues. The NFL agrees with their legal stance.

On the question of money laundering, DraftKings referred questions to a statement from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association that said the sites have “instituted monitoring systems to identify and prevent fraudulent or suspicious transactions.”

An employee with one of the companies, DraftKings, admitted last week to inadvertently releasing data before the start of the third week of N.F.L. He said his industry is much more likely to attract customers who play chess and the stock market than people who make bets at sports books.

The legal stance by Jason Robins of DraftKings that daily fantasy sports leagues are not a chance-based gamble has done nothing to tamp down what has become an intensifying national debate around the country.

The debate was a hot topic of conversation at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas.

Signing up for a DraftKings account involves choosing a username, providing an email address, clicking a box that says the person is older than 18 or 19, depending on the state, and providing credit card information. Daily fantasy sports allows online players to pick a roster of point-earning players from various teams for a single day of competition and win money, in some cases $1 million.

Many in the highly regulated casino industry insist daily fantasy sports leagues are gambling sites, shouldn’t be treated any differently than traditional sports betting and, as a result, should be regulated. “A rose is a rose.”

“This screams and cries out for regulation,” said sports betting law expert Dan Wallach during a different panel at the gambling conference, who suggested it could be a haven for money laundering.

A screen grab from the Draft Kings fantasy sports web site www.fun88no1.com.

Observers, though, believe that after spending hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising during football games, the spotlight on the daily fantasy sports industry may ultimately lead lawmakers and regulators to keep a closer watch.

Robins said fewer than 15 percent of the people using his site bet on sports the traditional way, either legally or illegally.

The daily fantasy sports industry has gone to great lengths to distance itself from traditional sports wagering. “It isn’t that different from the stock market.”

Two major fantasy sports companies are under fire over allegations that amount to insider trading, the New York Times reported Monday night.

Robins, though, implied there should be no confusing his operation for a casino’s. The midlevel content manager later won $350,000 at rival site FanDuel that same week, the Times reported.

“Fantasy is real gambling,” said Dennis Drazin, chairman of New Jersey’s Monmouth Park Racetrack, during a panel discussion. DraftKings spokeswoman Sabrina Macias said later that the number is based on internal research.. No other identification is sought.

He didn’t say where that number came from and didn’t take questions after the moderated panel discussion to clarify, walking quickly out a side door as reporters asked questions.

Meanwhile, a New Jersey congressman has asked for a hearing on the legal status of daily fantasy sports, the commissioner of the NCAA’s Southeastern Conference has barred daily fantasy site ads on the SEC Network, and the casino industry’s American Gaming Association is looking into the industry as part of a broader look at legalizing sports betting beyond a few states.

“It’s really the same type of person who, on the game side, likes chess,” Robins said.

Robins cites an exemption in a 2006 federal law for fantasy sports that he believes allow his site and others including FanDuel to offer contests that normally spanned an entire season down to a single day. games. Others suggest the sites could be a potential haven for money-laundering.

“If it’s gray, our job is to make it black and white,” said Geoff Freeman, the association’s president and CEO

Using Reverse Line Movement To Win

However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.

So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice.

prosportsonline.net

So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.

The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares). Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.

Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly.

College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.

By: Manny G

So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.

Article Directory: http://www.articledashboard.com

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.

The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line. To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.

The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units. Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it. Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.

Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable. Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.

Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..

To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.

http://prosportsonline.net. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years

Muhammad Ali, ‘the greatest’, remembered as boxer who transcended sports | Reuters

“He came to Congo to return to the land of his ancestors.”

“His fight outside the ring would cost him his title and his public standing. God is the greatest.”

President Barack Obama, the first African-American to reach the White House, said Ali was “a man who fought for us” and placed him in the pantheon of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr and Nelson Mandela.

Bursting onto the boxing scene in the 1960s with a brashness that threatened many whites, Ali would come to be embraced by Americans of all races for his grace, integrity and disarming sense of humor.

Foreman said Ali was one of the greatest human beings he had met. To put him as a boxer is an injustice.”

“He was a transformative figure in our society.”

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.

Few could argue with his athletic prowess at his peak in the 1960s, with his dancing feet and quick fists. He spoke boldly against racism in the ’60s as well as against the Vietnam War.. “And he stood by that.”

Ali, who had long suffered from Parkinson’s syndrome which impaired his speech and made the once-graceful athlete almost a prisoner in his own body, died on Friday at age 74. “The Louisville Lip,” as he was called early in his career, loved to talk – especially about himself.

(Additional reporting by Brendan O’Brien in Milwaukee, Frank McGurty in New York, Alex Dobuzinskis and Dan Whitcomb in Los Angeles; Writing by Bill Trott and Frank McGurty; Editing by Alison Williams, Leslie Adler and Paul Tait)

But his taunts could be brutal. But Ali became much more than a sportsman. who tried to unite all humankind through faith and love.

By Ricardo Arduengo

| SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. The death of Muhammad Ali, the former heavyweight champion known as much for his political activism as his boxing brilliance, triggered a worldwide outpouring of affection and admiration for one of the best-known figures of the 20th century.

In New York’s Harlem district, fans gathered outside the famous Apollo Theater, where a marquee paying tribute to Ali read: “The greatest of all time. “But Ali stood his ground.

Along with a fearsome reputation as a fighter, Ali spoke out against racism, war and religious intolerance, while projecting an unshakeable confidence that became a model for African-Americans at the height of the civil rights era and beyond.

Nearby, hundreds more gazed at projections of phrases and images most associated with Ali, such as “float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.”

“Humble people, I’ve found, don’t get very far,” he once told a reporter.

“We lost a giant today. He changed his name after his conversion to Islam.

Ali met scores of world leaders, during and after his championship reign, and for a time he was considered the most recognizable person on earth, known even in remote villages in countries far from the United States.

Pam Dorrough, a tourist in New York’s Times Square, admired Ali’s refusal to apologize for what he believed.

“In the end, he went from being reviled to being revered,” civil rights leader the Rev.

Ali is survived by his wife, the former Lonnie Williams, who knew him when she was a child in Louisville, along with his nine children.

Asked how he wanted to be remembered, Ali said: “As a man who never looked down on those who looked up to him … From Africa to East Asia to the U.S. “Joe Frazier is so ugly that when he cries, the tears turn around and go down the back of his head,” he once said about his arch rival. Despite his failing health, he appeared at the opening ceremony of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, stilling the tremors in his hands long enough to light the Olympic cauldron.

Ali “was an African. And his victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today.”

Flags were flown at half staff in Louisville, Kentucky, where Ali’s modest childhood home on Grand Avenue has been turned into a museum. who stood up for his beliefs … Army and fight in Vietnam, Ali returned in triumph by recapturing the title and starring in some of the sport’s most unforgettable bouts.

“The confidence – and I know everybody thought it was an arrogance about him – he always projected a confidence,” she said. It would earn him enemies on the left and the right, make him reviled, and nearly send him to jail,” Obama said in a statement. “No doubt he was one of the best people to have lived in this day and age. Ali was admitted to a Phoenix-area hospital, HonorHealth, with a respiratory ailment on Monday.

Manny Pacquiao, a boxer and politician in the Philippines, where Ali fought Joe Frazier for a third time in a brutal 1975 match dubbed the “Thrilla in Manila,” paid homage to Ali’s legacy outside the ring.

Ali was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on Jan. South, news of Ali’s death brought tributes across the world of sport, entertainment and politics.

“LOUISVILLE LIP”

The cause of death was septic shock due to unspecified natural causes, a family spokesman said on Saturday. 1942-2016.”

TRIBUTES POUR IN

Stripped of his world boxing crown for refusing to join the U.S. And I wouldn’t even mind if folks forgot how pretty I was.”

“He’ll be remembered as a man of the world who spoke his mind and wasn’t afraid to take a chance and went out of his way to be a kind, benevolent individual that really changed the world,” the family spokesman, Bob Gunnell, said at a news conference in Scottsdale, Arizona.

In Kinshasa, the city where he battled George Foreman in the 1974 “Rumble in the Jungle” – a city that was then part of Zaire and is now the capital of Democratic Republic of Congo – the fight is remembered as much for its political symbolism as for Ali’s tactical brilliance in beating his hulking opponent.

“I think when you talk about Muhammad Ali, as great an athlete, as great a boxer as he was, he was the greatest boxer of all time, he means so much more to the United States and the world,” said Ali’s long-time friend, boxing promoter Bob Arum.

Despite Ali’s failing health, his youthful proclamation that he was “the greatest” rang true until the end for millions of people around the world who respected him for his courage both inside and outside the ring.

In the brutal world of prize fighting, Ali set himself apart with his wit and fondness for playful verse. He is in a better place. 17, 1942, as Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr, a name shared with a 19th century slavery abolitionist. Boxing benefited from Muhammad Ali’s talents but not nearly as much as mankind benefited from his humanity,” he said.

Ali’s daughter Maryum said on Saturday: “I am happy my father no longer struggles. He also dubbed Frazier a “gorilla,” but later apologized.

Ali’s diagnosis of Parkinson’s came about three years after he retired from boxing in 1981. He was a Congolese,” David Madiawi, a salesman on Kinshasa’s Avenue de Commerce, said on Saturday. A funeral will be held in his hometown on Friday.

Betfred Hungerford Stakes At Newbury Key Race Trends – 13 August 2016

I do love the Shergar Cup – it divides opinion and fair play to those who want to avoid it completely but 10 runner class 2/3 handicaps at Ascot provide some great betting opportunities – especially when you can rule some of the runners out because of the jockey bookings….

I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and looked at the following trends – Age, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins & Group Form….

With an average field size of just over 8 runners during the past decade, the Hungerford Stakes often provides an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. more

5 myths of sports betting legalization

4: It will damage the sports betting business in Las Vegas

“One of the things that makes sports betting so interesting is that it is probably by far the most widely participated in form of illegal gambling. Say I set up an account with Legal Sportsbook A. Maybe more so.

Once games happen, the stats are public domain. The U.S. There are going to be a lot of hands in the cookie jar. Vegas has had to reinvent itself as a place that is about more than just gambling. This is the type of financial recklessness associated with problem gambling.

Mr. When I lose this money, it’s gone, and I can’t bet until I put more money on deposit. I will likely have to put money on deposit to do so. U.S. operation for the U.K. Since sports gambling is currently something that happens in the shadows, problem gamblers are likely to hide in that shadow until it is too late.

In that time span, we all know that Vegas has flourished. Illegal sports betting has some characteristics that can lead to problem gambling more than legal betting would.

Myth No. bookmaking powerhouse William Hill has already set up an operation in New Jersey, and MGM CEO Jim Murren has said his company is interested in expansion.

The thought process here is that with legalized sports betting available locally, there will be less interest in making the trek to Sin City to wager on sports. In the past two decades, although total revenue has risen, percentage of revenue from gambling has decreased from close to 60 percent to last year’s 38 percent.

Myth No. Illegal gambling is one of the factors that’s associated with gambling addiction,” Keith S. If it’s legalized, there will be huge changes, but some assumptions are simply off.

Las Vegas sports book operators are already looking to expand to other states. “But for the FBI knocking on our door and notifying us about Donaghy’s betting, none of the systems that we then had in place had captured any betting by Tim Donaghy.”

Until many of these questions are answered, it will be difficult to draw any hard conclusions about the ramifications of legalized sports gambling in the U.S. In addition, customers are far more inclined to place a wager when they don’t have to put any money down.

While it seems that the question of legalizing sports betting presently is more of an if than a when, there remains a great deal of uncertainty regarding what it would look like. This credit relationship will be hard for many gamblers to give up.

Silver echoed this sentiment when discussing his personal revelation in an exclusive interview with ESPN. Sen. In the latter case, I set up a credit arrangement with Illegal Book B and we agree that I will pay every time I go over $1,000. First off, the government will only legalize if it is going to get significant revenue. The two biggest reasons people bet with bookies (beyond the lack of alternatives) are the convenience and the line of credit. Concerts, shows, high-end nightclubs and restaurants draw people to Vegas as much as the gambling does. “The Donaghy controversy also made me aware how important it is that we have a way of monitoring irregular activity on our games,” Silver said. Whyte, executive director of the NCPG, told my ESPN colleague David Purdum.

The topic of federal legalization of sports betting has been brought up before, but it has gained steam since Adam Silver’s November New York Times op-ed and after Silver’s cover story in ESPN The Magazine’s Gambling Issue. I am concerned that the overall pie, even with online gambling, may not be large enough for the leagues to make the money they are hoping for.

Since bookies will not have to pay taxes or licensing fees, they will be able to offer better margins or incentives to their customers. (It’s common for bookies to offer rebates to their big customers.) This will be difficult for legal bookmakers to compete with.. In fact, there’s an argument that exposing more people to sports gambling in their native states will make the general concept of sports gambling more approachable, ultimately leading to a larger overall percentage of sports fans-turned-gamblers.

In the most relevant case, CBC, the parent company of CDM Sports, a fantasy provider, sued MLBAM after being denied a new fantasy sports license. This is not how most bookies work. District Court Judge Mary Ann Medler ruled in favor of CBC, stating that “statistics are part of the public domain and can be used at no cost by fantasy companies.” One would infer that the same would apply to legal bookmaking operations.

Myth No. Many bookies will allow me to get more credit and continue to gamble. There are no credit checks or margin calls until it is time for me to pay. Purdum, an expert on the subject, has been vocal in his belief that online sports gambling will need to be a big part of the new legalization plan, and I share his belief, as betting on a phone and computer is simply much more convenient than driving to a brick-and-mortar sports book and making a wager. How will it be regulated? How involved will the government be? Will it be federal enforcement or on a state level?

Those betting with bookies have predetermined settlement terms.

There is simply no way the leagues could ask for a percentage piece of gambling revenue, as this would result in a huge conflict of interest. These days, most bookies provide both a phone number and website where bets can be made. Those who believe that legalized sports betting will lead to more risk of game fixing simply don’t understand why games are fixed. It’s a pretty reasonable assumption that it’s easier to fix a game in an environment where most of the money wagered is impossible to discover or track by the government. The experience of going to Vegas is becoming less and less about putting down a sports bet and more and more about the experience of everything else. In addition, asking for a percentage based on the overall handle (total amount wagered) will cut into the margin of the sports books too significantly.

I see the same trend happening if sports betting gets legalized in the U.S. This year, it is on pace to welcome a record 40 million visitors. Second, operators will need to run a cost-effective business, which may prove difficult if there are a lot of other hands to feed besides the government.

I understand the argument that legalized sports betting could expose more people to gambling and the increased ease and access will create more problem gamblers, but I simply don’t buy it. John McCain (R-Ariz.) also recently said that Congress needs to hold hearings to discuss legalizing sports betting.

When I think about the best way to legalize sports gambling from a logistical standpoint, I get a headache. But let’s say I have a bad losing streak and end up down more than $1,000. If something shady were to occur in a game around a betting proposition, raised awareness by the public about gambling in general would help highlight any improprieties before, during and after the match.

The real value for them will be potential marketing dollars and increased fan engagement, not licensing fees for data or direct revenue from wagering.

And I have heard some mention licensing fees for data, but haven’t we already covered that in lawsuits against both the NBA and Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM)? In both cases, statistics and data were ruled to be public, not a private asset for which the leagues could charge a license fee.

Here’s an example. 3: It will put local illegal bookies out of business

My answer is a solid maybe. Are fewer people gambling because they can do it in their home state?

At any rate, I really don’t see legalized sports betting in other states having a big impact on the sports betting business in Vegas.

This is the easiest myth to dispel. Yes, trademark images and logos would be a different story, so I could see the leagues getting marketing deals, but I don’t see that as a huge windfall for the leagues.

Those who believe this simply don’t understand how sports betting with a bookie works. Some are based on a time frame, while others are based on going over agreed-upon limits. 5: It will create greater risk for game fixing

There are a lot of unanswered questions regarding legalization of sports gambling in the U.S., and it will be fascinating to watch how it unfolds in the next few years. 2: It will create more “problem gamblers”

Furthermore, once sports betting becomes legal the negative stigma behind it will eventually disappear, which will make it a bit easier for problem gamblers to ask for help. Legalized sports betting would elevate these now somewhat esoteric notions into the mainstream conversation about sports. However, there are certainly some myths that I believe can be dispelled.

In addition, game fixing would be easier in a world where fewer people track or are even aware of things like point spreads and over/under bets. In order to grow the pie large enough, these conveniences must be provided to gamblers. 1: It will result in large revenue for the leagues

Myth No. This mirrors a similar concern that some had 25 years ago when Indian and commercial casinos began sprouting up all over the U.S.

Here are the top five myths about legalizing sports betting and why they’re wrong:

The National Council on Problem Gamblers has found that problem gamblers are most often involved in illegal gambling, so moving toward a model where more gamblers are doing it legally can only help.

Horse Betting – Must Read Help Tips

Races are measured in furlongs.

Now here are some simple tactics which may be helpful to a new bettor:

Morning Line – Approximate odds printed in the program and posted before wagering begins. Wager on the favorite.

Entry – A horse entered in a race is called an entry. Luckily, we are here to help you today. But horse betting is risky and those who wager on it often lose more than they win. While historically they won about a third of the races, in recent times that percentage has crept up, particularly at smaller race tracks. Purchase a tip sheet or handicapping aid.

Watch the broadcast signal while the horses are in the paddock and in the Post Parade.

1. That is why it is no wonder that horse betting is the most popular sports to bet on. This is a forecast of how the morning linemaker believes wagering will occur In a particular race.

3. And on rare occasions, two or more horses are said to be “coupled” and run as an “entry,” comprising a single wagering unit. This is not necessarily a sound wagering strategy as favorites can pay very little but there’s no doubt about it, favorites win a lot of horse races. If you really want to win in horse betting, then you should do your homework and study tip sheets and tactic articles to help you win. Favorites win approximately one third of the time. A wager on one horse of an entry is a wager on both.

Post position – A horse’s position in the starting gate, numbered from the inner rail outward.

Before we go on some tips that you can use, let’s first look at some of the horse betting lingo that you should definitely.

Finding a good bet at the horse race track or the thoroughbred races is one way to make money and also adds a lot of fun and excitement. In harness racing the percentage of winning favorites is well over 40% at some race tracks. View the horses.. So do your homework and look for some odds and picks of horse betting today and start winning!

The favorite is the horse with the lowest odds or the one on which the most money has been wagered. Most of the tip sheet needs to be bought. That means that if you’re betting on horse races, you have to figure out how to beat the favorite or when to bet the chalk, as they’re sometimes called.

Furlong – One-eighth of a mile or 220 yards. 2. I’m going to share to you some general tips that will definitely increase your chances in winning your bet. It’s not like you go on the race and choose your favorite number to bet on. But if you want some free handicapping aid, just visit online betting sites as they offer free daily odds and picks that will help you decide on what horse to bet.

Purse – The amount of prize money distributed to the owners of the first five or six finishers in a race (varies by state).

Remember that horse betting, like any other sports need to be studied if you really want to win. Read on.

These are prepared by professional handicappers and may provide useful wagering selections

Using Reverse Line Movement To Win

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.

Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.

So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.

So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.

So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares). Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.

College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.

. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.

The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.

The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.

To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years. However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season.

Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..

The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line. Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.

Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable
