2011 NBA All-Star Game Betting

When the NBA's best gather in Los Angeles this weekend for the league's annual All-Star Game there's plenty of money to be made on All-Star prop bets.

And that's after you decide whether the West deserves to be a 2.5-point underdog the game (the best West line online which was available at Sports Interaction Sunday).


Daytona 500 Betting Update

Kevin Harvick has been pegged as the sportsbook favorite at 8/1 odds to take the checkered flag in the 2011 Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on Sunday.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. picked up the pole last Sunday and then relinquished it with a crash in practice on Wednesday. Earnhardt Jr. enters the race at 9/1 odds like Kyle Busch, as they sit behind Harvick at Bodog.


UFC 127: Penn vs. Fitch

Jon Fitch wants to prove to everyone that he’s one of the best fighters in the world, and he’ll get an opportunity at UFC 127 to potentially send a legend into early retirement. That legend is B.J. Penn, and he will be looking to take a big step up the Welterweight ladder with a win over another top-ranked 170 pounder.


Cowboys vs Aggies in Big 12

Gallagher-Iba Arena will host Cowboys vs. Aggies action on Saturday as both teams try to pay off for bettors in college basketball betting action in the Big 12.

The Cowboys sit at 16-9 (11-9 ATS) on the season. By comparison, the Aggies are currently 20-5 (7-8-1 ATS). Looking to wager on the totals? Oklahoma State is 10-10 OU, and Texas A&M is 5-10-1 OU.


NBA Slam Dunk Contest Odds

This weekend's Slam Dunk Contest is all about Blake Griffin, as the powerful Los Angeles Clippers rookie is a huge favorite in the annual exhibition.

Other than Griffin this year's Slam Dunk Contest doesn't boast the big names that the event has seen in the past. That just one reason why Griffin is a heavy -275 favorite in the contest over at Bovada. If you want to see the other reason head over to YouTube and search for Blake Griffin dunks.

Sheen Show Suspension Odds

There have been reports that the production of the hit show Two and a Half Men is set to begin on February 28th after a hiatus because of Charlie Sheen's troubles.

Troubles? Well, porn stars, tons of drugs, and non-stop partying as reported by TMZ.com may not sound like trouble to some, but for Sheen he was spiraling out of control and Warner Bros. and CBS execs pulled the plug on the show until the star got better.


Rangers, Devils on NHL lines

New Jersey is winning at the right time and the momentum is swinging their way as they prepare to host the +120 road underdog New York Rangers in a key divisional matchup Friday night in NHL betting action.

The Devils (-140 on the NHL lines) were a complete write-off, but a recent five-game winning streak has landed them with an outside shot at the playoffs. They are also 8-1-1 over the past 10 games and could have the edge in this contest. The Devils defeated the Rangers at Madison Square Garden earlier this month.


Tigers Open as Underdog vs Crimson Tide

The Alabama Crimson Tide will look to pick up a win while covering the spread when they take on the Tigers in LSU at Pete Maravich Assembly Center on Thursday in college basketball action.
