Cantor Gaming signs deal with California casino

06.15.2012     12:43 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Cantor Gaming inked a deal with California's Colusa Casino Resort and will offer its famed mobile gambling. It obviously won't include sports betting but rather blackjack and baccarat. 

"California represents a tremendous opportunity for our business, and we look forward to exploring further opportunities within this market," Cantor CEO Lee Amaitis said in a statement.

Nevada offering low price tag on online gambling licenses

06.15.2012     12:29 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Compared to other states, purchasing an online gambling license in the state of Nevada is super cheap. We're talking WAY off the market price. The initial one-year license is $500K and $250K per year after that. The first licenses could be issued as soon as next week.

California, for example, has legislation pending that would require a $30 million license fee that would serve as a credit against monthly taxes imposed on gross gaming revenue. Just to apply for a license would cost from $1 million to $5 million.

Florida plans a nonrefundable $10 million fee credited against its 35 percent gross gaming tax in addition to an annual licensing fee of $500,000. Massachusetts will seek a $10 million fee that would be credited against gross gaming tax revenue.

Denmark striker awaits outcome of Paddy Power underwear incident

06.15.2012     11:27 AM     Printer Friendly

Update on the status of Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner who for whatever reason decided to pull a mid-game marketing stunt in the EURO Cup.

Sportsmemo's Marty Otto: This could be a big deal if he ends up suspended. Bendtner is the best striker on the team and scored both goals last game. Denmark hasn't qualified for the next round yet and plays its toughest game against Germany upcoming.

MLB Betting Alert: Total of 10 with hitter-friendly weather at Wrigley Field

06.15.2012     08:14 AM     Printer Friendly
Boston (Matsuzaka) -115 at Chicago Cubs (Dempster) O/U 10

Warm temps with the wind blowing out to left at 11-12 mph for this afternoon's Red Sox-Cubs matchup at Wrigley. After scoring just eight runs in Ryan Dempster's first five starts, the Cubs have done a much better job supporting the veteran right hander of late. They've netted 8, 10, 8, 0, 4 and 6 runs over his last six starts (Cubs went 4-2 in those games).

Dude blows $1.5 million he didn't really have at casino

A word to the wise. If you find yourself the beneficiary of an ATM glitch that provides you with unlimited funds, do not – we repeat – do not blow it all at a casino.

Woods remains US Open betting favorite after opening round -1

06.15.2012     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
All aboard the Tiger Woods bandwagon. Following yesterday's 1-under par 69, Woods is now a 2-1 betting favorite to win the US Open. Off of last week's Memorial Tournament victory, Woods was one of just six players to crack par in Round 1 at the Olympic Club. Michael Thompson leads the field after shooting an unbelievable -4 while four other golfers are tied with Woods for second at -1.

"This golf course, it's so demanding," Tiger told the media after his round. "And if you're off your game just a little bit, you're going to pay the price. And it's hard to make pars. Phil and Bubba were off just a little bit. This is one of those Opens where it's just really hard to make birdies. This is not like I was last year. This is a tough one. This is tough to make birdies. You've got to really grind, and for me I thought I hit the ball well today and I didn't have a whole lot of putts from ten feet or 15 feet or in. It's just hard to get the ball close."

MLB Betting News: Rockies have allowed 70 runs during eight-game losing streak

06.15.2012     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Colorado Rockies (24-38, -15.7 units) are now 0-9 in Interleague play and have lost eight straight games overall. During the eight-game losing streak, they've allowed 8, 10, 8, 10, 11, 7, 6 and 10 runs. Amazingly, since the late season meltdown of 2010, the Rockies are 98-143. For tonight, Jeff Francis makes his second start since coming off the DL. He allowed 10 hits and eight earned runs in 3.1 innings last time out against the Angels.

"What makes this so frustrating is that you want to win now," pitcher Jeff Francis said. "It's not about winning in two years, it's about winning now. Back then, it was almost like being in the minor leagues.

"I mean, you played to win and you played to be successful, but there was a bigger picture. But now it's hard to see a bigger picture because of these losses."

MLB Handicapping: Many reasons behind surge in pitching

06.15.2012     06:49 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Great article by ESPN's Jayson Stark on the continued rise of pitching in MLB. The obvious reason behind it is the removal (or decline) of steroids. But as Stark points out, there appears to be much more to it.

Want to guess how many fewer runs will be scored this season than were scored in the 2000 season, if teams continue sputtering along at their current pace? How about nearly 4,000. Right. We said FOUR THOUSAND runs.

"You can definitely see it in the second half," says one NL executive. "These guys are cooked. They're OK through June. But then the weather starts to get hot, they've played 80-90 games, and then the grind, the travel, the schedule starts to get to them."

"I've never seen as many hard throwers on every single team as I do now," says Derek Lowe. "It seems like every team has three or four guys coming out of that bullpen throwing 95 miles an hour."

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago White Sox at St. Louis Cardinals

06.14.2012     02:00 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Chicago WS (Floyd) +115 at St. Louis (Westbrook) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Chicago

St. Louis starter Jake Westbrook has been an absolute disaster area for a month now; 0-4 with an ERA approaching 8.00 in his last six starts while giving up 48 hits in just 31 innings of work.  He’s been pitching with a cut on the middle finger of his throwing hand; a lingering issue that has clearly affected his mound presence.  The Cardinals bullpen behind Westbrook has been struggling mightily, ranked in the bottom quartile of the majors in ERA, blown saves and losses. The White Sox had scored 25 runs in their previous three games prior to getting blanked last night – their high octane lineup has been clicking on all cylinders for weeks, ranked #6 out of 30 MLB teams in runs scored this year.   There’s absolutely no reason to think that Chicago won’t be able to tee off on Westbrook and the bullpen behind him tonight; producing runs in bunches.

Shaun Marcum has apparently been granted the ability to pick opposing teams and pitchers

06.14.2012     01:29 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Milwaukee's Shaun Marcum has always been an interesting study. From a stuff standpoint, he isn't flashy, but he's managed to keep batters off balance for much of his career. But we’re not here to call out Marcum as some smoke-and-mirrors fraud. Instead we'll make mention of the fact that few starting pitchers if any have faced an easier slate of opposing offenses.

Marcum's Opponents (NL total runs rank out of 16)
vs. San Diego (15)
vs. Pittsburgh (16)
at LA Dodgers (6)
vs. San Francisco (11)
at Houston (8)
vs. Chicago (14)
at San Francisco (11)
at San Diego (14)
vs. Houston (8)
vs. Colorado (1)
at Atlanta (3)
at Chicago (14)

Note that Marcum faced Colorado in Milwaukee (the Rockies have scored the fewest road runs of any team in the NL) and also had the luxury of facing LA in pitcher friendly Dodgers Stadium. But wait! Let’s take this a step further and check out the opposing pitchers during Marcum's 12 starts. Now he did face two quality arms in Matt Cain (twice) and Erik Bedard. But beyond that, it has been a litany of below average pitchers: Edinson Volquez (twice), JA Happ (twice), Chris Read more

Irish sportsbook Paddy Power is at it again and this time it's below the belt

06.14.2012     10:59 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
As popular and accepted as betting on soccer is in Europe, wearing underwear with a sportsbook's logo – and showing the viewing audience – is probably not the best decision if you are a player in the Euro Cup. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the sportsbook in question was Paddy Power. Still we dream of a day when LeBron James conducts a postgame interview with a 5Dimes scarf.

Online casino disputes dude's crazy gambling run

06.14.2012     10:05 AM     Printer Friendly
Back in 2009, an Italian man hopped online and with 20 euros in his account, started playing a lottery game. A few hours later, he was pumped up £650,000. The company,, says there was a bug in the software that allowed the gentleman to risk so little and win so much in such little time. They obviously are doing everything in their power to avoid paying out. The issue is currently in court.

Speaking through an interpreter, Mr Venturi told the court: "I had always lost previously... but when I started to win I had a very good feeling. I'm a player and my instincts told me to keep betting."

 "I realised the amount that I was winning and I realised that I had to stop. I had been lucky enough... I am only human. I was taken by the emotions and there was a lot of euphoria."

He added: "I've never had so much money... It's a very big win; it's not something that happens every day."

MLB Handicapping: Kansas City's Luke Hochevar should improve

06.14.2012     08:14 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Milwaukee (Marcum) -115 at Kansas City (Hochevar) O/U 8.5

On the surface, Kansas City's Luke Hochevar has been one of the worst starters in baseball with a 3-7 record and 6.57 ERA. But there is no question he's been unlucky this year. He sports the second highest BABIP (.364) among qualified starters and has a dismal 57.5% left-on-base rate (the league average is around 70%). Also, his Fielding Independent Pitching (FIP) rate of 3.61 is above league average. Does that mean he's going to immediately turn things around? Probably not, especially with his confidence level not being very high at this point. The good news is the Royals don't have a lot of options so he'll continue to get the ball every fifth day. If his "luck" can turn around, he has the potential to eventually get back to last year's post-All-Star break form when he posted a 6-3 record and 3.52 ERA.

Cleveland (Tomlin) at Cincinnati (Leake) -120 O/U 9

Unfortunately we don't have a database for how pitchers fare after a bout with the flu. According to reports, Cincinnati's Mike Leake – one of many on the team that caught the bug – is ready to go for this afternoon's start against Cleveland. Leake spent yesterday recovering and claimed he was feeling better. He has been pitching better of late with a 2.84 ERA over his last five starts. In five career Interleague starts, Leake owns a 3.48 ERA.

MLB Handicapping: American and National League Run Differentials

06.14.2012     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
Update of MLB's runs scored, runs allowed, run differential and luck. Luck is a tool from Baseball-Reference that provides the difference between a team's actual record and Pythagorean W-L. For example, the Cardinals are second in the NL in run differential yet only one game over .500 and in third place in the Central. Based on their run differential, they should be 37-26 not 32-31. Baltimore is 10 games over .500 yet a modest +4 in run differential. Pittsburgh is three games over .500 but has been outscored by 25 runs.
