NEW YORK April 25, 2008 - Oil prices have been fluctuating for almost a year now driving gas prices in the US and elsewhere through the roof. That much is not news. What is news however is the fact that oil prices rose sharply Friday on news that a ship under contract to the U.S. Defense Department fired warning shots at two boats in the Persian Gulf.  Retail gas prices as expected rose further into record territory nearing $3.60 a gallon.

With tension and speculation in America rising as exponentially as the prices themselves, the biggest, most accurate and most successful sportsbook on the web, BetUS.com posted odds on just where the ceiling is with regard to oil prices.

“With news of the warning shots being fired spreading, site users and those curious and or worried alike have been flooding our site,” stated BetUS spokesman Reed Richards. “The fact is, people know we are an unbiased, accurate source for predictive information ranging from everything from sports, politics, and international news. We feel obliged to provide accurate, up to the minute information.”

The Juice is lose and we have OJ Odds

O.J. Simpson was released from jail yesterday after posting $125,000 bail after spending three days in jail.

A Nevada judge set bail yesterday for the former football star on charges stemming from Simpson’s confrontation last week with sports memorabilia collectors. The defense and prosecution agreed on the bail amount, which was confirmed at a brief hearing before Justice Court Judge Joseph Bonaventure.

Simpson, who was released in the early afternoon. He planned on returning to his Florida home, his lawyer, Yale Galanter, said during a televised news conference.

BetUs is offering +120 that he’s found guilty. THis is just a slight favorite considering the media is already saying that he’ll be spending the rest of his life behind bars.

BetUS.com is also offering betting odds on how long OJ Simpson will be spending behind bars with over a year being a +500 underdog with a payout of $500 for every $100 bet.

OJ Simpson Recorded Robbery

In a follow up to our earlier story OJ Simpson arrested at Las Vegas casino

OJ Simpson in handcuffsTMZ.com has obtained an audio copy of the shock OJ Simpson robbery that transpired this past Thursday night at the Palace Station Hotel in Las Vegas. Listen Here (the language on this tape may not be suitable for all listeners).

The audiotape was recorded by Thomas Riccio, who co-owns the auction house Universal Rarities. Riccio met up with Simpson before the confrontation at the Palace Station Casino on Thursday night.

“We’re told Riccio was on hand to help Simpson prove certain memorabilia being auctioned by Alfred Beardsley was ill-gotten. Riccio says he believed Simpson was going to confront Beardsley in the hotel room to give him an ultimatum — either hand over the goods or Simpson would call the cops.”

Riccio turned his digital voice recorder on before the men entered the room. The group included Simpson and four other men. Almost immediately, Simpson went wild, hurling profanities at Beardsley and another memorabilia dealer, Bruce Fromong.

The confrontation lasts six minutes. It is graphic and telling. Simpson repeatedly says, “Don’t let nobody out of here.”

“Think you can steal my s— and sell it?”.

How the audiotape ended up in the hands of TMZ.com is not known to us. OJ Simpson will probably not have a bail hearing until Tuesday morning.

We’re sure your favorite online sportsbook is hard at work coming up with some interesting OJ Simpson prop bets. Make sure to visit them and have a look for yourself.
