Illinois interested in online poker

05.16.2012     02:12 PM     Printer Friendly
Reports have surfaced that the State of Illinois wants to join the online poker race. Here is a quote from Senate President John Cullerton:


“Certain forms of iGaming, especially poker, rely on large pools of potential players, and states that move swiftly to design a system that captures the widest audience of participants will have an advantage in terms of long-range success,” Cullerton wrote. “The goal is to make the state nimble enough to adjust to new Internet gambling approaches.”



Here is what Cullerton meant to say: "Everyone here is pretty much aware than our state is on the verge of a financial disaster. And that is with us taxing the crap out of everything. Why don't we get a leg up on this online poker thing Read more

NBA Playoff Betting Notes: Miami now -6.5 vs. Indiana for Game 2

Indiana at Miami -6.5 O/U 186

Some news and notes on tonight's Game 2 matchup between Indiana and Miami.

Indiana head coach Frank Vogel didn't blame the refs for Game 1's loss but he willingly took a fine to let them know the Heat do a lot of flopping.


‘(The Heat) are the biggest flopping team in the NBA,’ Vogel said to the media Thursday. ‘It’ll be very interesting to see how the referees officiate the series and how much flopping they reward. Every drive to the basket, they have guys not making a play on the ball,’ Vogel continued, ‘but sliding in front of drivers. Oftentimes they’re falling down even before contact is even being made.’”

NBA Handicapping: Winning Wagers on Round 2 Home Favorites

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We cashed a pair of NBA winners last night when the 76ers (+4.5) beat Boston outright and the Thunder (-7.5) romped over the LA Lakers 119-90. Miami and Oklahoma City won and covered their opening games in Round 2, and those victories highlight a proven and profitable playoff parameter on Round 2 home favorites.

Over the past decade, Round 2 home favorites have experienced more success than any other round of the NBA playoffs. Miami won and covered all three home games as favorite last season against Boston, and NBA home favorites have covered over 58% of their games since the start of the 2003 playoffs (sample size over 170 games).

That’s a solid base situation with a large sample size. This season, Round 2 home favorites are 2-2 as the Celtics failed to cover either game, and last season those Round 2 home favorites went 11-4. But add in this line parameter and the bigger home favorites provide a stronger profitable profile. Since 2003, home favorites of -5 or more points are now 84-22 straight-up and 67-38-1 ATS (64%).  In fact, over the past 30+ games, these home favorites of -5 or more points have covered over 70% of the time! That includes 2-0 Read more

Sharp bettors see Oklahoma City Thunder with multiple edges over Los Angeles Lakers

The opening round of the NBA Playoffs is already in the history books, and we’ve got some compelling matchups as Round 2 begins.  Let’s take a whirlwind tour around the NBA, examining some of the prevailing issues for each series from a betting perspective.

The most hyped series of them all is this Lakers-Thunder showdown, a series where the general public and the wiseguys seem to be valuing these teams very differently.  The public looks at LA and sees a team that won two recent championships with their current corps of players; a team with a rested and healthy Metta World Peace back in the lineup; a team that stepped up during crunch time of Game 7 in Round 1 thanks to passionate efforts from big men Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, and a team that has gotten significantly better since acquiring point guard Ramon Sessions at the trading deadline.

Wiseguys look at the Lakers and see an older team that can’t match the Thunder’s youth and energy.  Sharp bettors have pounded Oklahoma City on the series price, bet up as high as -460 prior to Game 1.  They give OKC an edge in nearly every department, preferring Kevin Read more

NBA Playoff Handicapping: Clippers have hands full vs. Popovich and Spurs

The opening round of the NBA Playoffs is already in the history books, and we’ve got some compelling matchups as Round 2 begins.  Let’s take a whirlwind tour around the NBA, examining some of the prevailing issues for each series from a betting perspective.

The Spurs-Clippers series has drawn a lot of attention in handicapping circles for one reason – a complete coaching mismatch.  San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich is a tactical genius, plain and simple, earning another NBA Coach of the Year award in 2012.  His veteran stars – Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan – all buy into what he is preaching 110%.  Parker, in particular, is as close to a head coach on the floor as you’ll find in the NBA these days. 
Popovich certainly recognized the effect of his veteran leaders on their teammates. “Every NBA team had the same problem as far as developing rookies, bringing in free agents, rounding out the team. Leadership here from Tony, Manu and Tim has been spectacular. They set the tone and were very committed.”

NBA Playoff Gambling Report: Boston looks to take 2-0 lead over Philadelphia

The opening round of the NBA Playoffs is already in the history books, and we’ve got some compelling matchups as Round 2 begins. Let’s take a whirlwind tour around the NBA, examining some of the prevailing issues for each series from a betting perspective.

The betting markets often struggle to accept that teams can change their stripes in the postseason, performing at a very different level than they did during the regular season. Philadelphia is a prime example; not the same team now that they were a month or two ago, when they struggled mightily to step up in class.

Philly is healthy. They are confident after squeaking by the injury riddled Bulls in the first round. And they’re getting dramatically improved play from two key starters right now; the biggest reason why Boston is the single shortest favorite on the series price futures betting board even after their Game 1 victory, rallying back from a double digit deficit to escape with the one point win.

The two biggest personnel differences for the 76ers now compared to the regular season are Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes. Turner was the #2 overall pick in the draft last Read more

MLB Betting News: Baltimore calls up lefty Eveland for spot start

Tampa Bay (Hellickson) -125 at Baltimore (Eveland) O/U 9

With Jason Hammel (knee) on the shelf, the Baltimore Orioles called up veteran Dana Eveland for a spot start tonight against Tampa Bay. Eveland has pitched well in Triple-A with a 2.21 ERA.


"He had a good year in a very hitter-friendly park in Triple-A and has had some success at times in the big leagues," Showalter said. "He's pitching real well down there, pitching as well as any of their starters are, so I think we're lucky to have him. We'll see if Tampa agrees with me."

MLB Handicapping Notes: Totals in the month of May

Our rampage continues this week with another top-play 20* Big Drive winner as our American League Over/Under Game of the Month cashes in the Rangers’ romp over the Orioles, 10-3. The highest scoring game on the MLB card was highlighted by Josh Hamilton’s four home run performance. It gave us our fourth-straight MLB winner and nearly +7 units of MLB profit in the month of May.

Here’s some MLB totals information to add to your handicapping arsenal. The month of May has been a profit-producer playing UNDERS lined at 10 or more runs. Over the past decade, there has been over 500 games lined at 10 runs or higher in the month of May and the under has cashed at nearly a 56% rate.  Healthy pitching and fresh arms are still seemingly prevalent in the early season and the weather has not yet hit the higher temperatures that often result in more runs scored.

This season we’re seeing fewer runs scored and much less offensive production, and there are fewer games lined at 10 runs or higher. However, there is a situation to look for that can increase the percentages of winning these UNDER the total wagers, and it involves winning teams as home Read more

MLB Handicapper News and Notes: Baltimore Orioles on the rise

The first month of the baseball season has come and gone, and there is no shortage of interesting stories to discuss. This week, I’ll break down the two biggest surprise teams in early season play (one positive and one negative), but this article has got to start with some discussion of the single biggest prevailing trend in all of baseball – the lack of run production in both leagues.

Hitting has declined markedly in recent years. In 2008 the AL hit a composite .268, while the NL, without the DH, hit at a .260 clip. Here in 2012, as of Monday, May 7th, the AL composite average has dropped to .248, the NL down to .249. During that same span, ERAs have dropped nearly a quarter of a run in the AL and a remarkable 3/4 of a run in the NL. 17 major league teams are currently hitting under .250 and twelve major league teams have posted ERAs under 3.50. The last time we saw MLB teams combine to hit less than .250 for a full season was back in 1972 – before the DH was introduced into the American League; a year where only one AL team (Kansas City) hit better than .250 for the full season.

Another way to gauge the relative success that pitchers have Read more
