Las Vegas -
Variety.com asked me to post odds for the upcoming Emmy Awards. Bryan Cranston, above, WILL NOT win the "Outstanding Actor" in a Drama, that will go to Matthew McConaughey from "True Detective." But "Breaking Bad" WILL cop the statue for "Outstanding Drama." Check out this link and see all the odds at Variety so you can WIPE OUT everyone in your office pool!!!
BIG changes on the college football board after the news broke that Ohio State QB Braxton Miller will miss the 2014 season. The first reaction here in Vegas was to take the game against Navy off the board. Then the Buckeyes, who opened at 12/1, suffered a steep drop in the odds to win the Championship, plummeting all the way down to 40/1. We have even seen 50/1 odds in a couple of spots. The Ohio State/Navy game will be back up on the board once Urban Meyer names the starting QB. It looks like J.T. Barrett, 6'1" and 225 pounds, will get the nod over Cardale Jones. Expect the line, which opened with the Buckeyes a 17 point favorite, to drop around four points.
Okay, so I WAS outta my mind picking Francisco Liriano yesterday, and paid the price. The Braves smoked the Pirates 11-3, it cost me $70, and after pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1918 is the current figure.
And for all my baseball fanatics, we're not leaning this evening.
