The summer transfer window is open and with club football right around the corner, online sportsbooks have started offering lines on where some big players may end up. If you fancy yourself an insider, you might as well have a little poke on some of these props.
Bovada has lines for a slew of players and I’ve outlined a few here that I believe offer some value. Keep in mind, the money in football is outrageous, and the big clubs will always challenge to pry away the best players.
The all-star break is a good time for teams to reflect and assess what kind of chances they realistically have of making the playoffs. This will determine what the rest of their seasons will look like. Will they go after a big name before the trade deadline? Will they trade away a big name for prospects and concede defeat? The options are limitless and OddsShark has broken done some numbers to get a picture of where teams might finish and whether they will be buyers or sellers heading into the August 1 deadline.
As the dust settles on one of the craziest offseasons in recent memory, the NBA landscape has shifted significantly.
Kevin Durant is a Warrior. Dwyane Wade is a Bull. Dwight Howard is a Hawk. Al Horford is a Celtic. Luis Scola is a Net (okay, maybe that one wasn’t as groundbreaking.) With a skyrocketing salary cap, teams threw around money like a hot potato this summer, which resulted in an unprecedented amount of overpaying for mediocre talent.
Brock Lesnar stormed into UFC 200, took care of business and then promptly went on back to the WWE. However, the speculation about Lesnar’s return to the Octagon is already running rampant.
Online book, Bovada has posted odds as to whether ‘The Beast’ will make his return before the end of the year. Brock fighting for the UFC before the end of 2016 is listed at +140 with ‘No’ coming back at -200.
However you feel about Cristiano Ronaldo, he’s pretty good at this whole footballing thing and with his team winning the 2016 European Championship, he has been thrust even further into the spotlight – if that’s possible.
Sure, training camps haven’t even started yet, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be betting the NFL. Though we are literally months away from the award being handed out, books have opened odds on who will be the next NFL MVP.
Sports books took some high heat in major league baseball in May and the numbers suggest that June may not be a whole lot better.
Nevada books earned just 1.5 percent on baseball action in May according to Nevada Gaming Control - the worst hold for the month going back at least 12 years. A rise in scoring and big win rates for both favorites and the OVER seemed to be the culprits for books - and June isn’t looking much better.
It appears that the road to the AAC Championship runs through Houston. The Houston Cougars claimed the title last season and looked like one of the best teams in the country doing so. Houston is led by quarterback Greg Ward Jr., who finished last season with 2828 passing yards and 1108 rushing yards while accounting for 38 touchdowns.
With their leader returning under center for the 2016 season, Houston has been pegged as EVEN money to win the AAC according to Bovada.
