Twitter IPO odds: NYSE vs NASDAQ

Twitter's planned IPO (initial public offering) has created tons of buzz and, not surprisingly, plenty of Twitter action.

But which exchange will the mega-microblogging site get listed on? Will Twitter go public before or after December 1?

As always, when the public is wondering, sportsbooks are offering odds on it. Today, online sportsbook Bovada offered numerous props on the pending Twitter IPO.


Home dogs are barking in the NFL

Home dogs went 3-1 against the spread in Week 2, with the Buffalo Bills and Arizona Cardinals winning outright. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers covered the spread in a 16-14 loss to the New Orleans Saints. The New York Giants were the only home dog to fail to cover.

Home dogs are now 6-3 against the spread on the season. There are three home underdogs this week, all from the AFC North. The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens are 2.5-point home dogs to the Houston Texans. The Ravens are 1-3 against the spread in their last four games as home underdogs.

Courts rule against NJ sports betting

A federal appeals court was the latest to roadblock New Jersey’s push to legalize sports betting Tuesday.

The three-judge panel upheld an earlier roadblock ruling that the state’s betting law violates federal law and can’t be implemented. But the state has indicated it will take its case to the Supreme Court, because it feels a 20-year-old law is unconstitutional (it gives Nevada and three other states privileges of sports betting but forbids the other 46 states).


UFC 165 Props: Jones vs Gustafsson

Both champions are favored to win and to finish their opponents as betting props for UFC 165 start filling sportsbooks menus.

UFC 165 Jones vs Gustafsson is headlined by the light heavyweight championship and Jon Jones is a whopping -800 favorite. Bantamweight champ Renan Barao is also a big favorite in Toronto.

And the props also stack the odds high against the challengers, according to Bovada. Jones is -260 to finish the fight, while a decision victory for Bones Jones would pay as a 3/1 upset.
