Hornets Trending Towards a Win?

The New Orlean Hornets have lost four of their last five games. With that being said, I really like them in their upcoming game against the visiting Detroit Pistons Wednesday night. The recent trend the Hornets have been following is to lose two straight games then win their next game. That fits perfectly with the upcoming game against the Pistons. They also have won the only two games they have played at home following losing on the road. The Pistons are visiting New Orleans Wednesday night and have not been very good on the road this year. They have a 2-9 record away from the Palace at Auburn Hills this season averaging just over 89 points per contest. New Orleans enters the game with an overall record of 13-7 and sits in third place in the southwest division standings. Defensively the Hornets have been very impressive. They are allowing 92.7 Read More

Betting on Football – A simple Starter Guide

There are a few ways to bet on your favorite football game. One of those ways is simply to make a bet with your buddy, each of you betting on opposing teams. This method usually involves more emotion than forethought, and over the long run is rarely profitable. It can make watching the game a lot more interesting though. A smarter method would be to keep track of your buddies favorite teams, and only bet against them during weeks when statistically they should lose against your own favorite teams. Injuries, fatigue, suspensions, all of these can play a part in handicapping a team. Handicapping for Cash As you get the hang of betting more intelligently, there are some things you can do to improve your own handicapping skills. Once you’ve gotten to a place where you’re making strong choices, and winning a good number of your bets, you can move Read More

Betting on Horses

Betting on horse races in the U.S. is quite simple. The three common ways in which to place your bet are, to win, to place or to show. A bet placed ‘to win’ is also called a straight bet.  This basically means that the money that you bet (your stake) is placed on the horse to win only. If the horse comes in first then you are a winner. A bet placed ‘to place’ means that you win if your horse comes in either first or second.  A bet placed ‘to show’ means you are a winner if your horse comes first, second or third. As the latter two options increase your chances of winning, your odds will be cut accordingly so that the final winnings will be a reduced amount. Many people think there is a winning formula or a system to use that can guarantee picking winners. It Read More

The New England Patriots will host the New York Jets for an epic Monday Night Football game that will take place in Foxboro before a national television audience.

The Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is arguably the most popular horse racing event in America.  It is the first leg of the Triple Crown followed by the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.  A horse has to win all of the three events to be a Triple Crown winner.  The race itself is for three-year-old thoroughbred horses and is held on the first Saturday in May every year.  It is the culmination of a two week long event known as the Kentucky Derby Festival.  Dubbed as ‘the two most exciting minutes in sport’ or ‘the fastest two minutes in sport’ the Kentucky Derby is now run over 1.24 miles at Churchill Downs.  A man called Meriwether Lewis Clark Jnr. had seen the Epsom Derby in England and upon his return home started the Louisville Jockey Club as a way of raising money to start his own race course.  That course became known Read More

Poker: Mathematics is the Key

Sportsbook betting is very dependent on gambling odds and the probabilities of one given team or player succeeding over another.  Poker is also a very math oriented game.  The odds and percentages are important in poker, and the more you know about that, the better you will become at playing the game. The theory of poker as a mathematical game reminds one of algebraic functions and formulas.  This is because at any given time there is bound to be information that is missing from the poker equation.  When you calculate the probabilities of a hand you must figure it several different ways, with each outcome dependent on what will show up in the missing spaces.  For example, in a Draw Poker game if you hold a King and a Jack and lay down three of your cards for replacement cards, the missing information is what the three cards you will Read More

Craps Betting

On the Sportsbook website there are many casino games that can be played, and craps is one of them. The types of bets available are varied in this game and, when you watch it for the first time you might think you will never understand it.  The truth, however, is that almost anybody can figure out how to bet on craps with a little tutoring. The Roman gladiators may have been the first to play craps.  Their game involved using a simple die with dots on the various sides.  The modern-day game of craps is much the same as the game played in ancient Roman times. There have been developments over the centuries, of course, but the premise is still the same. The Pass Bet in craps is the one that most people make.  Your bet will be placed on the Pass Line and when the dice are rolled, you Read More

Who Will Win the AFC?

At this point in the NFL season, the likely Super Bowl contenders have emerged pretty clearly. Right now, there are five teams in the AFC that look like they have more than a meager chance of winning the conference and heading to Dallas for a shot at the title.  Those teams are the Baltimore Ravens, the Indianapolis Colts, the New England Patriots, the New York Jets, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.  So, who will it be? While all these teams are very good, not one of them has shown themselves to be a clear favorite.  The Ravens have defensive issues, the Colts have had injury misfortune, the Patriots have worse defensive issues than Baltimore, Mark Sanchez is struggling under center for the Jets, and Pittsburgh has injury concerns with their offensive line.  In the end, it might come down to who gets home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Baltimore and Pittsburgh Read More

Who Will Win the NFC South?

The NFC South has been a tumultuous division for several seasons now.  In fact, since the NFL realignment before the 2002 season, no team has repeated as champion.  That might be the case this season as well.  While the New Orleans Saints are in the mix, they definitely have some competition. Only one team is out of it in the NFC South, and that is the Carolina Panthers.  They may be the worst team in the NFL, and if they didn’t win another game for the season it wouldn’t be surprising.  Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been a surprise team, though they owe that to some less than stiff competition thus far.  Of the three potential contenders for the division, they seem the least likely to win. That leaves the Saints and the Atlanta Falcons.  The Falcons currently lead the division, but the Saints should not be counted out. Read More
