National League West Division Odds

The National League West looks like it will be a dog fight between the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers, which should be a shock to approximately nobody. The Dodgers and Giants have finished one-two in the NL West three of the past four seasons.


Top Three Las Vegas Pools

Summer is one of the most fun times of year to visit Las Vegas if you do not mind dealing with the heat, as temperatures average at least 100 degrees during the months of June, July and August. The summer days for many Vegas visitors are often spent poolside, so it is important to know what casino resorts have the best pools and outdoor accommodations for your enjoyment even if you are not staying there.


No Shortage of Sleepers in Kentucky Derby

While the undefeated juvenile champion Nyquist, Santa Anita Derby (G1) winner Exaggerator and four-time graded stakes winner Mohaymen have been garnering most of the attention in early betting for the Kentucky Derby (G1), this year’s race is highlighted by plenty of live longshots looking to pull off the upset.

We have seen three consecutive betting favorites win the Run for the Roses, but we have to go all the way back to 1972-1975 to find four consecutive favorites hitting the winner’s circle at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday of May.


Game of Thrones Dead Pool Odds


We are now two episodes into Season Six of Game of Thrones and there is more electricity among fans than we have seen all of last season. With so much turmoil at Castle Black and the revival of Jon Snow, Alliser Thorne has become the favorite to be the next major character killed in Thronies.


2016 NBA Draft Lottery Odds

NBA Draft Lottery

The NBA Draft, AKA the Philadelphia 76ers’ Super Bowl, is set to get underway on June 23, and hoops fans that cheer for underperforming teams are gearing up for the affair. But before we get there, the all important draft lottery takes place on May 17.

Last year, the Minnesota Timberwolves became the first team since 2004 to win the draft lottery while having the best odds to do so (25 percent). Since the weighted lottery system was introduced in 1990, only four teams with the worst record went on to win while only four squads with the second-worst record have won.


The Greatest Upset Ever

Unless you’re just waking up from a coma you’ve likely heard. The greatest sports betting upset of all time happened Monday evening when Leicester City clinched the top of the Premier League table after opening the season at 5000-1. 

“In hindsight, we were idiots offering odds of 5,000-1." Irish and UK bookmaker Paddy Power said in a statement. 


PGA: Wells Fargo Championship Odds

Rory McIlroy PGA

The Wells Fargo Championship is one of the newer events on the PGA Tour, but it’s quickly established itself as a premier non-major tournament. That’s a big reason this year’s field features plenty of starry names, which presents tons of intriguing options for golf bettors.

At online sportsbook Bovada, Rory McIlroy is a gigantic +450 favorite to win it all. Dustin Johnson (+1400), Adam Scott (+1600), Rickie Fowler (+1600), Henrik Stenson (+2000) and Justin Rose (+2000) have the next best odds at the shop.


Cris Cyborg Career MMA Odds History

Make no mistake about it — Cris Cyborg is the most dominant female fighter in the history of mixed martial arts. Novice fans of the sport will argue that Ronda Rousey is the best female to ever compete in the sport, but a simple glance at their records shows that Rousey has some serious work to do if she wants to catch Cyborg.


Profile on Derby Contender Gun Runner

Trainer Steve Asmussen is headed to the Hall of Fame later this summer, and has a good chance of making it an even better year when he saddles Gun Runner in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby (G1) at Churchill Downs.

The colt finished first in the Road to the Kentucky Derby points standings with 151, picking up 100 of those points with his impressive victory in the Louisiana a Derby (G2) at Fair Grounds on March 26 in his final prep.


Best/Worst Money Pitchers In Baseball

We may only be one month into the MLB season, but we have seen some pitchers come out of left field to flourish while big names have become money pits. With baseball now a full calendar month into the season, here's a quick look at the best and worst money pitchers so far this season.

Best Money Pitchers

Mat Latos has been a solid, yet unspectacular journeyman throughout most of his career, but he has been lights out this season. Latos has a 1.84 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP, which would easily be the best numbers of his career if he somehow maintains it.
