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.

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.

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.

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.
