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).

Scott Dixon and Marco Andretti are the co-favorites on the Indy 500 betting lines at the sportsbooks with the race set to get underway on Sunday afternoon at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Dixon and Andretti both sit at 7/1 at Bovada on the odds to win the Indianapolis 500 this weekend, with Dixon looking to improve on his second-place finish at the event last season. Dixon paid off on the Indy 500 odds with a win back in 2008.

The sports betting world, both online and in Las Vegas, was turned upside down Thursday when 25 individuals were indicted on gambling charges, including owners of the prominent offshore book PinnacleSports.com and Nevada bookmaker Mike Colbert of Cantor Gaming.
It has been 10 years since the Wallabies last won the Tri-Nations. This stunning win will forever label Australia as the last winner of this tournament as the Tri Nations will become the "Four Nations" in 2012 with the inclusion of Argentina.
The 25-20 victory over arch-rival New Zealand is a vital confidence boost for the Wallabies heading into the 2011 Rugby World Cup. The All Blacks, favorites to win the 2011 Rugby World Cup, now go into their home tournament with back to back losses, the first time they have ever done so leading into the tournament.

Betting the middle, or middling as it is also known, is a betting strategy that can earn high profits without high risk.
Sometimes it happens by accident with thrilling and profitable results for bettors (like the Black Sunday Super Bowl XIII middle, read on for the details). It is not for the novice bettor as it requires intermediate level sports betting knowledge and access to several sports wagering accounts.

IndyCar racing gets its annual spotlight treatment this weekend when the series returns to Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the 100th anniversary of the Indianapolis 500.
The pole-sitter for this year's Indy 500 is Canadian Alex Tagliani. He turned in some blistering times in qualifying to earn the pole, and even though the pole-sitter has won three of the last five Indy 500 races Tagliani is not the favorite on the Indianapolis 500 odds at Bovada. Right now Tagliani is third on the odds list at 13/2.

Now that we understand some of the mechanics of betting the point spread and why the line moves, there is a question that comes up regularly about the genesis of the line.
Who sets the line and how do they set it the damn thing?
