Strikeforce Betting Results Review

Strikeforce thought Welterweight champion Nick Diaz would have a tough time with top contender Evangelista “Cyborg” Santos, but it was just another day at the office for Diaz and his stiff jab.

The Bovada MMA betting lines had the Strikeforce Welterweight champion as a heavy -340 favorite against Santos (18-14), but it did not look like he was the favorite for most of the first round. Diaz (24-7-1) took numerous hard leg kicks from Cyborg and looked to be suffering the effects by the end of the first round.

Betting Line:


Pro Bowl Prop Bets Roundup

The Pro Bowl is arguably the worst All-Star Game in pro sports, but at least you can make it somewhat bearable on Sunday by picking out some prop bets for the contest.

At Bovada the player with the best odds to score the first TD of the game from the AFC is running back Arian Foster at 13/2. Since he'll be starting at RB for the AFC he'd be a pretty good pick. Other AFC options that could find the end zone first: Jamaal Charles (10/1), Reggie Wayne (10/1), or Dwayne Bowe (12/1).


NHL Odds: All-Star Breakdown

The rosters are set, and now NHL bettors can decide who they like more in the 2011 NHL All-Star Game in Raleigh, North Carolina – Team Lidstrom or Team Staal.

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom and Carolina Hurricanes forward Eric Staal divvied up the league's All Stars via a draft on Friday night, with Lidstrom assisted by Tampa Bay Lightning forward Martin St. Louis and Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane, and Staal aided by Washington Capitals defenseman Mike Green and Vancouver Canucks forward Ryan Kesler.


Jessica vs. Ashley Super Bowl Odds

When you think Jessica vs. Ashley odds, those trampy Simpson sisters come to mind, especially since Jessica was Tony Romo's love interest several years ago.

But these Super Bowl odds related the current girlfriends of starting QB's Aaron Rodgers of the Packers and Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers.


Strikeforce: Herschel Walker Odds

Fight fans finally get to see former NFL star Herschel Walker step into the cage again and display his fifth-degree taekwondo black belt skills. In his second pro fight Walker will take on Scott Carson at Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Cyborg.

Strikeforce isn’t taking any chances with their big-draw star and have him matched up against an opponent that will have difficulty with his striking skills.


NHL All Star Game Betting

It's All-Star weekend with the NFL Pro Bowl going alongside the NHL All-Star game odds on Sunday afternoon. The hockey classic will not be the normal East vs. West matchup. Instead it will be Team Staal vs. Team Lidstrom and while the format is different, it could still be a very high-scoring contest with hockey bettors eyeballing the OVER.

The NHL All-Star game hasn’t gotten much press in recent years so the league decided to do something different this season and have two captains choose their players in a draft type format. 


Pro Bowl Betting Preview

It may be Super Bowl bye week, but that doesn't mean it has to be a bye week for the NFL betting crowd. There's still the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, which has been so close to a 50-50 proposition that it almost a coin toss.

The Pro Bowl returns to Hawaii this season after last year's brief stop in the Super Bowl city, which in 2010 was Miami. The AFC defeated the NFC last season 41-34 with Matt Schaub collecting MVP honors.


Columbia visit Harvard in Hoops Battle

The Crimson will be trying to slam the Columbia Lions on Friday when the teams tip off at Lavietes Pavilion in college betting action.

The Crimson are 13-3 so far on the season, and 6-1 ATS vs. the number. The Lions, meanwhile, are 11-5 and 2-1 ATS. OVER/UNDER bettors have seen Harvard go 4-3 and the Lions go 2-1 on the totals.


Kings open as NBA underdog vs Lakers

Sacramento travels to Los Angeles on Friday, hoping to boost its 10-33 mark with a victory over the Lakers.

Supporters of the Kings have seen them go 10-33 and 16-26-1 ATS so far this season, while the Lakers are at 33-13 and 21-25 ATS. In totals betting, the Lakers are 18-28, while the Kings are 20-23.
