Odds on Hollywood’s Next Super Heroes – Tom Cruise vs Michael B. Jordan

Perhaps the most conspicuous of all actors’ contract negotiations occurred during the filming of old-fashioned soap operas back in the 20th century. Shows happened on simple timelines. If an actor or actress wasn’t pulling their weight, or a character wasn’t proving popular enough, the character on the soap could simply be killed-off, buried in a […]

Betting Sites Differ Wildly on Trump’s Odds to Win in 2020

It is tough to think of things that everyone can agree on in politics – never more so than in 2019. I’ve got to try, though – since my job here is to get readers on the same page. “No, it’s not,” you might say. “Your job at a handicapping blog is to handicap the […]

The Strange World of Area 51 Gambling Odds

I have highlighted a few “current events” betting markets over the past year that I thought were unethical and vague on behalf of bookmakers – markets on which the outcome was a matter of opinion. Such moves contradict the #1 reason why people enjoy sports gambling and often the sports themselves. Scoreboards are objective. If […]

Sports Betting in America: Ranking the Best Wee-Hours Gambling Action

Political and pop culture debates can be won and lost. It just takes a little time. For instance, liberals have persuaded many conservatives (in America, at least) that LGBTQ citizens should have the same rights as straight citizens. But it’s not as if anyone changed their minds in the heat of the moment. Gay marriage […]

5 Infamous Lottery Scams and Scandals

State lotteries around the country, as well as the Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL), go to great extents to ensure that their lotteries are fair and on the up-and-up. But no matter how much you plan, there’s always an unknown quantity that can throw everything into disarray. I remember as a kid growing up in Massachusetts, […]

How Sportsbooks Troll Gamblers With Absurd Markets

If I hadn’t worked in the nightclub industry in a past life, I would probably be a lot more frustrated with betting sites that hold as much information as possible close to the vest. I’ve literally been told by a sportsbook employee as I searched for a game line, “You will find out if there […]

Contrarian Betting Strategies Anyone Can Use

Contrarian betting strategies are based on contrarian investing strategies. Contrarian investing is making investment decisions that go against the popular public strategies. The concept is fairly solid if you do it in a smart way, because the average investor isn’t very successful. This is even more pronounced in gambling. The average gambler loses money, so […]

Who Gets More Enjoyment Out of Sports Betting: High-Rollers or Penny Players?

I haven’t looked deeply into the real-life story behind the biopic film Owning Mahowny, but I would be very interested to know if the subject – a gambling addict who wins and loses millions before finally losing his shirt thanks to casino-action fever – ever tried betting on sports instead. In an iconic scene, Mahowny […]

9 Traditional Family Games You Can Gamble On

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t playing games. Some of my earliest memories are playing games with my mother and two grandmothers. I continue to play games today, even as I approach the half century mark in my life. Both of my kids grew up playing games, and my wife and I still […]

2020 Democratic Party Nomination: Updated Gambling Odds Following the Opening Debates

As I grow older, I’m noticing more-and-more the fringe benefits of Las Vegas odds-making. Sports betting odds are great. But when Vegas bookmakers handicap the news and adjust political gambling odds with the action, it’s like having an up-to-the-minute stock report at your fingertips. Except instead of Boeing aircraft or tissue paper or corn futures, […]

11 Things I Hate about Gambling

I love to gamble. It’s one of the most fun things I get to do in my life, and over the years I’ve enjoyed thousands of hours doing it. But gambling isn’t all sunshine and flowers. Many things about gambling get under my skin. The list below includes the top 11 things I hate about […]

Reality Check: How Entertainment Gambling Changes in Summer

Living in the digital-information age it’s awfully easy to forget that there are still “seasons” of TV. Netflix is constantly refreshing content for its subscribers, YouTube “originals” can go up almost anytime, and the phenomenon of binge-watching has made it as easy to sit in suspense in July as in January. In addition to that, […]
