Sports Betting News

The NBA playoffs got underway this past weekend with Game 1 of the conference quarterfinals....

Las Vegas -

Nevada means home to me & Tianna Gregory. That's a line from the state song, and while T is from the Tahoe area, I still feel very close to her. So, my question is, which shot do you prefer? I was gonna go bottom left corner, but after studying real close, REAL close, gotta rock the middle shot. Think it was the TATOO that put me over the edge. Click and find your fav!

Someone on Long Island is gonna be very happy. No names but it rhymes with caddy, and he LOVES the action. We're gonna rock three selections in five cities on two continents, starting with a little three team 6-point NBA teaser. Take the Pacers from -7 to -1 over the Hawks, bump the Nets up from +4.5 to +10.5 against the Raptors and pump the Wizards from +5.5 to +11.5 over the Bulls. On the baseball diamond, it's the Cubs over the D'backs this evening. Why? Brandon McCarthy is why. McCarthy is 0-3, has given up a RIDICULOUS 30 hits in just 25 innings of work, and pitches to a 7.50 ERA. Fly with me over to Spain, where we'll rock Atletico Madrid over Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League semi-final. Anytime you hear Madrid, you immediately think of Real, but it's time to start paying attention to Atletico. Los Rojiblancos are sitting on top of La Liga, Spain's first division, four points better than Barcelona and six points clear of Real. They have been MAGNIFICENT this season overall, and SPECTACULAR at home. How about a 15 wins, 3 draws, 0 losses, with 48 goals for, and ONLY 9 goals against. And to make matters even worse, now Chelsea must face Atletico in the first leg of the semi-final WITHOUT striker Samuel Eto'o. That is a HUGE LOSS for the Blues. So, half a Benjamin on the teaser, half on the Cubbies and half on Atletico.

Had to slice half a Benj from the bank account last night as the Blue Jackets let a 3-1 lead evaporate and lost to the Penguins 4-3. After pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1925 is the current figure.

The 'if you need it' category hit a speed bump yesterday, when the Astros beat the Mariners 7-2. That put the record at 8-4 heading into tonight's play on the Brewers.
