Curling: 2016 Tim Hortons Brier Odds

Kevin Koe Curling

The 2016 Tim Hortons Brier begins Saturday with arguably the strongest field in the history of the tournament. Of the 15 team field (reduced to 12 after a March Madness like play-in round consisting of non-ranking Nova Scotia, Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut), nine are in the Top 20 World Curling Tour Order of Merit rankings, with five in the top 10.

A Moment in Snooker you won’t Believe

Snooker Tables

Normally North American sports bettors care as much about snooker as they do about your bad beat story from 1964.

But something happened Monday that’s incredibly funny, amazing or corrupt depending on your perspective. I bring it up as my first topic in this “Fixed or Fail” column, where I’ll look at strange happenings in the world of sports wagering and ask if it was ‘fixed’ (ie. corruption on some level) or merely a ‘fail’ by the athletes or anyone else involved.

NJ's Bid to Legalize Sports Betting Lost

Some major sports leagues defeated New Jersey’s latest bid to legalize sports betting within the state’s casinos and racetracks on Tuesday by a 2-to-1 majority decision.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia sided with the leagues over those in favor of the bill, stating that it violated the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. However, a petition filing for a hearing to further discuss the bill is expected soon.

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).
