X Game Odds: Skateboard, BMX Betting

The thrill of the X Games returns this week and anywhere there is a thrill, there is probably a betting line to make it even more exciting.
That’s true for the X Games 17, where daredevil skateboarders and BMX riders gather to showcase their skills and vie for extreme-sport championships. In skateboarding, Bodog is offering up lines on who will win the Big Air Event with three of the sport’s top riders - Bob Burnquist , Jake Brown, Pedro Barros - listed.


Who Will Replace Regis Odds

Mark Consuelos is the even-money favorite at the books right now to replace Regis Philbin as the co-host of Live With Regis and Kelly later this year.

Consuelos, of course, is married to Kelly Ripa, which the Bovada oddsmakers must feel gives him a leg up on the competition for the job. He's also been a fill-in host on the show in the past, and seemed comfortable enough engaging in the inane chit-chat called for by the job.


California tops Miss USA odds

Katy Perry sings that girls from The Golden State are unforgettable and undeniable, and the oddsmakers seem to be in agreement as Miss California has been set as the 9/2 favorite to win this Sunday's Miss USA Pageant.

Historically, the women of California have had success at this event, with five wins. That's second only to Texas, which boasts nine victories. California, though, will be looking to end a drought this weekend, as the state last won the pageant back in 1992.


American Idol Odds Season 10

After millions and millions of votes were cast across the country they're finally down to the final two on American Idol.

Last week on Idol the final three was cut down to two after Haley Reinhart sang her swan song and got the boot from the voters. That leaves Scott McCreery and Lauren Alaina as this season's final two singers.


Royal Family Prop Betting

The Royal Wedding may have come and gone, but Will and Kate's family members are still targets for the oddsmakers. Now that Will and Kate have said I do the oddsmakers at Bovada have turned their attention to their siblings, Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton.

Prince Harry may not draw the attention William did since he will likely never be King of England, but since he's still a royal he remains entrenched in the public eye. With William married off the question now becomes: When will it be Harry's turn?


Oprah Winfrey Prop Betting

Oprah Winfrey has been all over the news lately, with her show wrapping up and bumping the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals from the United Center. Now that her show is finally finished, what's next for Oprah?

Even though her national show may be coming to an end Oprah won't be going anywhere. She's already got her new television network, OWN, to play with. At Bovada they devised their own list and odds on what Oprah's next move will be.


Celebrity Breakup Prop Bets

There's one extra Schwarzenegger in the world – and will that fact be enough to terminate Arnold's marriage with Maria Shriver at some point in 2011?

Schwarzenegger, the former bodybuilder, action star, and California governor, revealed this week that 10 years ago he fathered a child with a household staff member. Schwarzenegger and Shriver had previously announced their separation.


Two and a Half Men Prop Bets

Two and a Half Men will carry on without Charlie Sheen next season, but will viewers stick around? That's the subject of a new showbiz prop bet at Bovada.

CBS announced its 2011/12 primetime schedule on Wednesday morning, and Two and a Half Men sat in its usual Monday 9pm slot. But instead of Sheen, fans of the show will get Ashton Kutcher in the fall.


WrestleMania XXVII Odds

The odds favor Cena is his match and The Undertaker is a huge favorite against Triple H as these two fighters return to the ring.


Royal Wedding Betting Odds
