Sports Betting News

The long wait for sports bettors that love to wager on football is finally over with the start...

Las Vegas -

Jennifer Lawrence has been in the news because someone hacked her phone, and posted a few naked pictures. We know that Jen is from Louisville, a HUGE Cardinal fan, and hope that this cover of her in the X-Men costume will bring a smile to her face. It certainly brought a smile to mine, and will to yours as well.

Here's some info on tonight's college football game between Louisville and Miami-Florida. After going 11-2 and 12-1 the last two seasons, the Cards lost QB Teddy Bridgewater to the NFL, head coach Charlie Strong to the Texas Longhorns and SUPER WR DeVante Parker to surgery. HUGE losses. The Hurricanes lost QB Stephen Morris but get RB Duke Johnson back. And just to give you an idea of how dominant the Dukester was, he rumbled for 920 yards in just six games last season and the 'Canes were 7-0 when he went down. Unfortunately, Miami will start a true freshman at QB, Brad Kaaya, and that's not always profitable. The 'Canes are looking to avenge an UGLY blowout at the hands of Louisville in last season's Russell Athletic Bowl, 36-9, but they are on the road, where they have covered only two of the last six. Too many variables, not enough points, so we're gonna pass. And for those that are tasting Ecks & Bacon for the first time, we are BIG on money management, and just because it's there, you DON'T have to throw down a wager.

Mixed bag yesterday. Winner on the baseball diamond, loser on the college football field. Was NOT in love with Chuckie (Keeton) as he had a total meltdown against Tennessee (18/35, 144 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs) in Utah State's 38-7 loss. That cost me a full Benjamin plus $10 worth of vig. Fortunately, the Angels and Matt Shoemaker dropped the hammer on the A's, easing to an 8-1 win, and it was worth half a Benj. After doing the math, and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$2028 is the current figure.

And for all my baseball fanatics, we're leaning on the Padres this evening.
