Sports Betting News

Sports bettors will have six different matchups between ranked teams to focus their college...

Las Vegas -

Thrilled about the start of the MLB playoffs, and that means we get to see Justin Verlander pitch. That also means we get to see his gal pal, Kate Upton. Who doesn't LOVE baseball??? Who doesn't LOVE Upton.??? And yea, we put Kate sideways just because...

Here is how we are gonna handle the Wild Card games. Please don't yell at me. Kinda lean to the Royals and 'Big Game' James Shields tonight, but Jon Lester and his TWO World Series rings get me a little nervous. Gonna keep the wallet on lockdown in the American League, but gotta rock some cash on the National League matchup. 

If you look at all the metrics, it would be Madison Bumgarner and the Giants over Edinson Volquez and the Pirates. After all, Bumgarner is 18-10, while Volquez is just 13-7. Bumgarner's ERA is 2.98 while Volquez is 3.04. Bumgarner is 11-4 on the road, while Volquez is just 8-6 at home. THROW away the metrics and marinate on this for a second. Volquez has NOT lost a game since July 21, and his last three starts have been Kershaw-esque. Like 21 innings, ONLY one earned run for a RIDONKULOUS 0.43 ERA. Anytime you got a ZERO as the first number of the ERA, it's BUY time! Throw in the home field edge, and we'll drop half a Benjamin on Pittsburgh. 

  Tom Terrific WASN'T so terrific last night as the Patriots were stomped by the Chiefs, 41-14. That blew up my three team teaser, and also cost me a pair of nickels for the straight bet on New England. So, after doing the math and pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$1763 is the current figure.
