Have you heard the one about the guy who won $2.5 million playing slots?

02.14.2012     03:08 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
What are you typically doing at 4:30 am on a Monday morning? Sleeping? Lying in bed knowing you have to get up in two hours? Perhaps you like to get an early start on the lawn. Regardless, you probably weren't at a casino – and if you were, odds are you weren’t playing slots because slots as we know are a waste of time. Unless of course you happen to win, in which case, being up at 4:30 am on a Monday is completely justified. Meet Wayne Warnders. He, unlike most Americans, was grinding it out at the L'Auberge Casino in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Monday. His weapon of choice was a 25 cent Wheel of Fortune slot machine. Said slot was kind enough to give Mr. Warnders a lot of money. $2.5 million to be exact. Lucky bastard.

College Basketball Betting Trends: Tennessee State's 2nd half domination

Submitted by Andrew Lange

I happen to stumble upon this tidbit with Tennessee State who has won seven straight and is currently in second place of the Ohio Valley Conference at 10-4. The Tigers have shown a strong trend of failing to show up early and playing out of their minds after the break. They've held a halftime lead in only seven of their 14 league games which has resulted in a dismal 3-11 ATS first half mark. But for whatever reason, TSU has played like gods in the second halves of these games, outscoring all but one of their 14 opponents by a combined tally of 610-484 – good for an amazing 12-2 ATS. That is an average second half score of 43.6-34.6. In the first half, they were outscored by a combined 46 points. Tonight, Tennessee State plays host to Jacksonville State. Play accordingly.

Asian betting markets go gonzo for Jeremy Lin and New York Knicks

02.14.2012     12:31 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
"Linsanity" has officially gone global. Betting markets in Taiwan are apparently going crazy with action on the New York Knicks of late. One betting shop said that following Jeremy Lin's 38-point outburst against the Los Angeles Lakers, 65% of bets were placed on the Knicks in their 100-98 win over Minnesota last Saturday.

Gamblers were slipped a Mickey while playing at fake casino

02.14.2012     12:21 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
If you are ever feeling woozy while gambling in Southeast Asia, chances are someone spiked your drink and the contents of your wallet are about to be sifted through and sold on the black market. That is what occurred to some innocent Chinese gamblers who were brought to a fake casino in Macau, drugged, and had their money stolen. One guy reportedly lost $1 million.

NCAA Basketball Betting: Lack of defense the source of Mississippi State's struggles

02.14.2012     12:10 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Mississippi State -1 at LSU O/U 134

Mississippi State is back to playing wildly inconsistent basketball with a 4-3 record (2-5 ATS) over the last month. Keeping the Bulldogs from becoming the class of the SEC West is their poor defensive performances. In SEC play, MSU is allowing 71.8 ppg. During last year's SEC regular season, MSU allowed over a point per possession in half of their games. This season, six of their last seven opponents have topped that mark and the Bulldogs ranks 11th or 12th (out of 12 SEC teams) in defensive efficiency, effective FG%, and 3-point% defense. An even worse stat is the paltry 79 turnovers forced in 10 games. These deficiencies are someone mystifying considering that from a personnel standpoint – both on the perimeter and in the paint Read more

NBA Handicapping: Indiana Pacers look to shore up defense vs. Miami

02.14.2012     08:18 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Miami -2 at Indiana O/U 198

The normally strong defense of the Indiana Pacers has slipped a bit of late due in large part to the stringent schedule. The Pacers have lost three straight and allowed 101.8 ppg their last four contests. Tonight they face a Miami Heat squad that ranks second in the league in scoring at 103.4 ppg.

"Our focus right now is strictly cleaning up some slippage on the defensive end, getting back to being the number one defensive team in the league, which we were for the first part of the season and beating Miami," Vogel said.

NCAA Basketball Gambling: 16 teams remain undefeated at home

02.14.2012     07:47 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Two weeks ago I provided blog and chart showing college basketball’s undefeated home teams. At the time (Feb. 1), there were 28 teams that were undefeated on their home courts (including non-board teams). I’ve updated the information below and you can see there are now 16 undefeated home teams. Every season I discuss and post information on the importance of home courts in college basketball and mention how teams perform with a home/road dichotomy. Understanding home court advantage and the situations surrounding the current contests is important in helping you isolate winners.

However, while home court strength plays an important role to many teams, it’s also essential to recognize line adjustments along with weaker teams and home courts. The ability to understand scheduling and motivational situations including second meets and meaningful revenge is also part of the pointspread prognosis and handicap at this time of year. I have many historically strong situations that provide plenty of profit at this time of Read more

College Basketball Betting Alert: Alabama and Florida shorthanded for matchup

02.14.2012     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Florida -3.5 at Alabama O/U 133.5

Not a lot of positives for either side as Florida travels to Tuscaloosa to take on Alabama. For the Crimson Tide, head coach Anthony Grant said Andrew Steele and Trevor Releford would likely play but that Tony Mitchell and JaMychal Green remain suspended indefinitely.

Florida will be without their two top scorers off the bench as Will Yeguete (concussion) and Mike Rasariio (hip). Yeguete's injury is particularly impactful as he provides size on the front line and also serves as the point man when the Gators decide to press.

“Dire is probably a pretty good word,” Donovan said, when asked about UF's frontcourt situation. “We're going to have to do some different

NBA Handicapping: Stoudemire returns for Knicks, teams up with Lin

02.14.2012     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
New York -5 at Toronto O/U 191.5

New York's Amar'e Stoudemire is expected to return to action tonight after missing time due to the death of his brother. Stoudemire says he's eager to play alongside Jeremy Lin. Carmelo Anthony is slated to return later this week.

“It should only enhance [Stoudemire’s] game,” D’Antoni said. “Again, having a point guard puts him back in his comfort zone. His comfort zone is the pick-and-roll and his comfort zone is getting fed for dunks, so that should help him. It should help everybody.”
