Casino City times reports Major leegue sports a big factor

September 18, 2008 (Casino City Times) — Just what is the connection between the U.S. Congress’ hardcore conviction that online gambling should be illegal, and the huge professional sports industry in America?

In a new analysis featured this week in Casino City Times, Vin Narayanan claims that there is a connection there, and that it’s more than significant.

Super Bowl Odds – New England -12

Looking at the odds for the Superbowl, New England -12 may have a hard time covering. The Giants are playing fantastic as a team, defense is great and the offence is running well, not fantastic but well. New England has been getting a lot of focus by the NFL obviously after going the entire season without a loss, I think this is a problem for them now as the Giants should see the weaknesses in both offense and defence as we can. Stay on the inside of the defense as the backs play off and outside, put LOTS of pressure on Brady and they should cover easily, if not beat the unbeaten?Â

Is Tom Brady hurt? Its hard to tell but by the end of the first quarter we should have the answer! Is Manning getting some inside information from Payton? I am a firm believer blood is stronger than sport, and Payton would much rather have New England beaten in the big game than not. Look for a great by the Giants, also look to Bill to put his plans together to stop them.

I think this will be a very interesting Super Bowl, much better matchup than most people really think.

No Dice : The U.S. offer to the EU

The United States has made an offer to settle the dispute regarding services in the online gambling issue with the European Union.

The U.S. offer to the EU involves opening areas that include storage, warehouse services and technical testing to compensate for the gaming restrictions implemented with the passing of last year’s Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).

This offer is thought to be inadequate and will not equate to the estimated $4 billion dollar annual loss to EU companies, as these same concessions are being offered as part of trade discussions in the Doha round of WTO talks.

NFL Week 2 proves to be very profitable to the bookies

Week 2 of the NFL season proved to be a very profitable week for the bookies as the heavy favorites failed to cover the spreads. Teams like the Bengals, Colts and Saints received nearly 100% of the action and failed to cover. Some other surprises like the losses by the Seahawks, Rams, Panthers and Broncos also helped the bottom line.

The only heavy favorite to cover was the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This is good news for the books as they’ve had a roller coaster ride the last couple of years.

NFL game of the week, staring the BROWNS?

Wow.. That’s about all I can say about the Cleveland Browns 51-46 shootout win over the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. The Cleveland Browns looking like the worst possible team in the NFL after the beating they took from the Steelers, History making one quarter benching of the starting quarterback then a later trade the same week. Well they came out shooting Sunday hitting everyone involved! Even the running game got a boost with over 200 yard rushing and 500+ plus yards total offense. Lost in all these stats id Joshua Cribbs 400+ plus yards in return alone. Wow..

 With all this offence on both sides, you have to wonder where the defence was? Well the Browns had a defensive stand when i counted, final minute when Cincinnati has the ball, the Cleveland Brown were able to get a diving sideline, toe scraping pick by Lee Boden to seal the game. Its been a long time since the fans of Cleveland have had something to cheer about, lets hope this can continue!

What about NFL fantasy football players and the book makers? Well all I can say is, did anyone see this coming?

Where are all the wise guys?

09/11/2007 – by Sid Diamond of Gaming Today

Before getting into next week’s fun and games, a word to all the executives in the accounting departments of the major hotels. Your store’s volume will decline this year as many “wise guys” are not participating in sports betting so far this season.

There are a number of reasons for this decline, but none are due to your specific store’s policies or personnel. Some weeks the joints will be elated with no buy bucks, but some weeks when the key favorites prevail there will be enormous losses.

It figures to be profitable for the stores, with a few potholes along the way. At the end of the day the proper percentage will be there.

Remember when football was fun?

Brady QuinnRemember when football was fun? I do… I remember when Pittsburg was the Steel Curtain and when San Fran was an offensive machine. I remember the Dynasty of Dallas. I remember when my team was on the field I could recognize all the players as they were MY players. I also can think back to watching the NFL Schedule as saying I know that going to be a tough game 2 months from now and of course I could mark down a win before the pre-season was over. Yes, I remember when the NFL was was fun…

So why does it sound like I am not having fun with the NFL today? Its not because they are on the move spending millions to ban online wagering, Its not because they are planning to make billions on NFL Fantasy Football Leagues, no, its because they destroyed the FUN in the NFL.
