The Beginner's Guide To Sports Betting posted by Bettor

Sports betting, as the name suggests is placing a wager on an expected sports outcome. Since it is a form of gambling, sport betting is illegal in many states in U.S. However, in many European countries it is legal to accept sports wagers under certain regulations. In U.S., wherever it is allowed, sport betting is usually done through a bookie or through various online outlets that perform the function of a bookie.

There are various types of bets in sports betting. The main ones include proposition bets, straight bets, teasers, if bets, goal line or run line bets, parlays, and many more.

Proposition Bets

These are wagers made on specific outcome of a competition or match. For instance, it could be correctly predicting the number of goals the two teams are going to score in a football match, or predicting the number of hits a player is going to do in a baseball game.

Straight Bets

A straight bet involves making a wager against a spread. In a spread, the bookie assigns a number to a team or player, which handicaps or favors it. For instance, in NBA, while considering two teams, one team will be perceived to have more chances at winning. However, to make the bet for the underdog more desirable, the bookie will give that team certain points. For example if Chicago Bulls are expected to win against the Boston Celtics, the spread might read Chicago Bulls -4 and Boston Celtics +4. If the person betting selects Chicago Bulls, he will have to subtract 4 points from the final score of the team before comparing it to the score of the Celtics. Hence, for winning the bet, the Bulls will have to win the game by five points or more. Straight bets are the most common type of wagers in sports betting.

Betting on the Boston Celtics After Ray Allen’s Departure posted by Celtics Fan

Even if you are trying out your hand betting on one of your favorite NBA teams, then you will probably agree that an online Sports Casino is a better option. It is much more convenient than walking into a casino or gaming house to place your bet. The transport cost, time wasted and privacy are some of the advantages that people who place bets online enjoy. They can place their bets at the comfort of their homes without setting aside long periods of time for it.

NBA basketball betting just like other sports betting systems, has come a long way. Online betting is now possible and secure thanks to the clear regulations that govern each of these sports betting systems. Not only are people betting from home on their PCs, they are also using mobile apps to place wagers on their favorite teams. Payment has also become easier and more convenient as these online casinos like  http://www.riverbellecasino.com/ allow for payment to be made by using various electronic payment systems. It's not just sports bettingyou can do online. As mentioned earlier you can now play a variety of casino games online. Gambling in general has never been easier, so whether it's sports betting or casino games you like to play, you're options are nearly endless.

NBA basketball betting is the second biggest sports league that people place bets on after NFL. The game also has a good number of exciting matches each season. The Advantage of NBA is like football it is quite easy to understand for anyone trying to wager for the first time. It is however not a good idea to always wager on your favorite team. The best way is to take time to understand the game and the rules of betting. It is also helpfull to choose a sport that you love, so that you can be motivated to keep up with it.

Top Basketball Betting Tips posted by Sports Fan

Basketball betting is not quite as common as betting on some other sports, but if you do your research, take your time and keep accurate records, there’s no reason you can’t be as successful at betting on basketball as betting on anything else. Here are a few tips to get you started.

Top Basketball Betting Tip: NCAA vs. NBA

Of course you are welcome to bet both college and pro basketball (including the WNBA), like placing your bets in online video poker games, you need to be aware that each type of basketball may have very different factors in play. In college basketball, every game counts, whereas pro teams can afford to drop a few games here and there and still have a great shot at the championship. There may be a much larger disparity between two competing college teams. Know the league you’re betting.

Top Basketball Betting Tip: Point Spread vs. Money Line

Except in certain special cases, you’re usually betting off playing the money line than a point spread. Just like getting the best online casino bonus, in basketball, the size of a team’s victory is not always indicative of the strength of that team. Multiple fouls at the end of the game can allow the leading team to tack on points if they make their free throws so that two evenly matched teams produce a winner that can cover a big spread. A team with a big lead may let the opponent catch up by putting in weaker players during “garbage time” so that a badly overmatched team appears to make a game close by the end.

Top Basketball Betting Tip: Favorite vs. Underdog

February Hearing Scheduled for Intrastate Online Poker in California posted by Paul

“I think it is workable as well as a potential source of new income,” said fellow State Sen. Dean Florez (D-Shafter). “How you structure it is the key.”

California — the cash-strapped state that has shown willingness historically to be a trendsetter when it comes to legislative action — is ready to hold a hearing on the merits of regulating online poker. Michigan State Sen. Roderick Wright (D-Inglewood) told the LA Times this week that the state legislature is planning on holding a hearing on the issue in February.

“About two million Californians are playing poker offshore right now,” said Patrick Dorinson, a spokesperson for Morongo, referencing the popularity of current online poker sites that serve American players.

The Morongo Band of Mission Indians & the Commerce Casino are two entities in a group of gaming-associated groups who are calling for regulation. Both the Morongo tribe & Commerce hope to operate online poker web-sites if the legislation became law.

However, not all groups support the proposal.

Lawmakers are hesitant to predict how much intrastate online poker training could bring in to the state in terms of revenue, but the LA Times said that if the state operated poker like it does its Indian-run slot machines, over $250 million could be raised per year.

“Card game betting on the Web would take business away from brick-and-mortar casinos,” said Robert Smith, the chairman of the Michigan Tribal Business Alliance.

Anti-gambling advocates have also voiced concern on the issue.

Centsports: College Football Betting posted by Chad

Well, if you followed me it looks like you cashed in with plenty of room to spare on the Tulsa/Tulane game.  No big deal; it's just what I do.  I win college football bets.  1-0 posting here on the year.  For those of you keeping track at home that is a 1000% winning percentage.  Undefeated some of us like to call it.  That makes me better than Rocky, who lost a lot.  Has anybody ever noticed that about Rocky?  He lost to Apollo, beat Apollo, lost to Clubber, beat Clubber, beat Drago, beat Tommy "Machine" Gunn in an unsanctioned fight (doesn't count for the record), and lost to Mason Dixon.  That's 3-3 in fights that I've seen him in, and the guy has 5 movies!  Unreal.  He supposedly defended his title 10 times before losing it to Clubber, but I don't know about that.  All I know is that he's not smart, but he takes a lickin and keeps on tickin.  Any Stratford football fans out there, that might remind you of one:  Mike Wilke. 

Okay, enough of that. 

Winners:  Minnesota/Syracuse over 47.  Minnesota can't play defense, Cuse should be able to move the ball a little bit, but both teams are pretty bad defensively. 

Baylor/Wake Forest under 54.  All Wake Forest does is play defense.  They play in the ACC; nobody in that conference can score above 30 a game right now.  This one goes under by 7-10 points.  Baylor can score; they have an exciting QB, but ball control is Wake's game.  At home.. I like the under.

Centsports: Tulane vs. Tulsa posted by Chad

So, I forgot to post 1 big time winner last night.  I was all over the Oregon/Boise State under and the Utah/Utah State over.  Hammered the under for a win, lost a little bit on the Utah spread and pushed on the total.  Figured they could cover 21 against a bad, bad Utah State team, but it apparently wasn't meant to be.  I'm a tad frustrated by that loss, but I've got one for tonight.  Friday Night High School Football night has a line up; not for high school but for that slugfest down south.  High powered Tulsa vs. ground ready Tulane and you know where I am going.  Under 62, all day long.  Tulsa isn't starting Paul Smith anymore, they were embarrassed their last time out.  Tulane runs right, runs left, runs right and left and they are going to try to keep the ball out of Tulsa's hands.  Eat the clock and score some points that way, baby.  Slow down the temp and make them earn the win. 

Tulane/Tulsa under 62.  Click here to bet on centsports.  All day. 

STRAIGHT BUTTER BABY.
