Los Angeles Angels at Toronto Blue Jays

Sportsbook(SportsNetwork.com) -Toronto snapped a five-game losing streak in Monday’s opener, as Jose Bautista went 3-for-4 with a two-run homer, three RBI and three runs scored to power the Blue Jays to a 10-6 win.

Russell Martin went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored for the Blue Jays, who won for only the second time in nine tries.

Toronto starter Todd Redmond allowed three runs on four hits over four innings. Roberto Osuna (1-0) got the win after tossing 1 2/3 scoreless frames.

Chris Iannetta, David Freese and Albert Pujols homered for the Angels, who have dropped two straight since a five-game winning streak.

C.J. Wilson got the start for Los Angeles and gave up four runs on 10 hits over five innings. Mike Morin (1-1) allowed three runs on one hit with two walks while recording two outs in the sixth.

Hoping for a better effort tonight the Angels will hand the ball to lefty Hector Santiago, who is 2-2 with a 2.41 ERA. Santiago is winless in his last four starts but pitched well enough to win on Wednesday against Colorado as he struck out eight and allowed just an unearned run in six innings of a no- decision. He also didn’t get a decision in his previous start, despite pitching 6 1/3 scoreless innings against Houston.

This will be his first start versus the Blue jays, but has pitched to a 2.25 ERA in five relief appearances against them.

Getting the call for the Blue Jays on Tuesday will be righty Aaron Sanchez, who lost for the first time in four decisions his last time out. Sanchez fell in Baltimore, as he allowed five runs and seven hits with four walks over 5 2/3 innings. He is 3-3 on the year with a 4.26 ERA.

The Angels have won 12 of their last 16 against the Jays.

Don’t make these mistakes

Horse betting(bleacherreport.com) – The 2015 Preakness Stakes boasts a relatively small eight-horse field led by Derby champ American Pharoah and top-three finishers Firing Line and Dortmund.  That trio was among the favorites at Churchill Downs, so after following through with the pre-race hype, it’s hard to envision all won’t be near the lead down the stretch at Pimlico Race Course as well.

But simply betting the top three won’t earn much of a return, so how can savvy bettors exploit the mainstream consensus?  Taking a look at the odds and race information, let’s highlight some horses who don’t look like strong bets at Pimlico as well as the jockeys most likely to keep their horses near the lead and deliver you a return.

Horses to Avoid

Dortmund

Trainer Bob Baffert’s “other” horse was undefeated until his third-place finish at the Run for the Roses, but in drawing the No. 2 post, Dortmund received a tough blow to his front-running strategy.  Given that the Preakness is the shortest Triple Crown race at just 1 3/16 miles (9.5 furlongs), this always represented Dortmund’s likeliest win.

However, it will be extremely difficult for him to break out front so near the rail right next to his stablemate, American Pharoah.

Danzig Moon

The fifth-place finisher at Churchill Downs, Danzig Moon is a popular sleeper pick here at 14-1 odds.  Bettors have zeroed in on Mark Casse’s horse as the clear fourth choice behind the Big Three, making him a popular bet in trifectas.

However, the rationale behind that choice is not entirely clear.  While the fifth-place finish was not bad considering the level of competition, Danzig Moon has yet to show he can be anything besides a secondary runner against top-level three-year-olds.

Milwaukee Brewers at Detroit Tigers

Casino betting(SportsNetwork.com) – Detroit took two of three from the NL Central-leading St. Louis Cardinals over the weekend, but was denied a sweep on Sunday in a 2-1 loss at Busch Stadium.

Alfredo Simon (4-2) took the hard-luck loss after yielding both runs on seven hits over six innings. Miguel Cabrera, who has four home runs and nine RBI in his last four games, continued to swing a hot stick with an RBI single to produce Detroit’s lone run.

Getting the call for the Tigers on Monday will be lefty Kyle Lobstein, who has alternated wins and losses in his six starts this season, but is coming off his worst showing of the season.

Lobstein absorbed the loss on Wednesday against Minnesota, which ripped him for six runs and seven hits in 2 1/3 innings. The setback dropped him to 3-3 on the year to go along with a 4.33 ERA.

He had entered the game with the most innings (33) of any Major League starter without a home run allowed before serving one up to Torii Hunter.

Heading to the hill for Milwaukee will be righty Mike Fiers, who is 1-4 with a 5.00 ERA. Fiers did not get a decision on Tuesday against Chicago, but pitched well enough to get the win, as he allowed just two runs, five hits and struck out seven in 6 1/3 innings.

He has 49 strikeouts in only 36 innings this season.

Milwaukee, meanwhile, pulls up the rear in its division and dropped two of three to the New York Mets over the weekend, including a 5-1 setback on Sunday.

Wily Peralta (1-5) last just five-plus innings and was touched for five runs on nine hits in Milwaukee’s fourth loss in five games. The Brewers were outscored 19-2 in losing the final two games of the series.

This is the first series between these teams since the Tigers swept a three- game set back in 2009.

Online Gambling How it Works

online gamblingOnline gambling differs from in-person casino gambling in a few obvious ways. There is little to no interaction between the players and the dealer, In fact, there is no dealer

Online casinos can offer dozens of different games. One site has slot machine games based on licensed comic book characters, while others have computerized versions of more traditional casino games. Most games are dressed up with fancy graphics and sound effects, much like real slot machines. Players can check the rules of each game and view a chart that shows payouts with the click of a button.

Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

People who have experienced both kinds of gaming say online games likepoker or blackjack usually go faster than their real-life counterparts because there’s no conversation between players to slow things down.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, NFL Odds to Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

A brief survey of one top casino site shows more than 60 games, including blackjack, baccarat, craps, various versions of roulette, at least two dozen slot games, keno, and several video poker games. The specific rules of the games reflect their real-life counterparts. In video poker or blackjack, players make decisions about the cards that can affect the outcome of the game.

There are also sites that offer online sports betting, which is another form of gambling. These sites allow users to place bets on athletic competitions of every kind, as well as other events like political races or the outcomes of reality TV shows. The sites offer their own odds, which in some cases are better than the odds offered by the traditional Las Vegas bookmakers

There is a difference in the odds between the “play for fun” version and the real money versions of online games. Although it can’t be confirmed, trying out the “play for fun” versions at several online casinos often results in hefty imaginary bank accounts. If the real money games also paid off that big, the casinos would quickly go bankrupt. Success in the “play for fun” games doesn’t equal sucess when real money is on the line.

Derby winner American Pharoah draws unfavorable No. 1 post for Preakness

horse racing games Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

(espn.go.com)- Bob Baffert can only hope the finish of the Preakness Stakes turns out better than the post-position draw.

The trainer watched in disbelief Wednesday as his Kentucky Derby winner American Pharoah drew the dreaded No. 1 post position for Saturday’s second leg of the Triple Crown. A moment later, his other entry, Dortmund, was saddled with the No. 2 post.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, NFL Odds to Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

A 1-2 punch he could do without after American Pharoah was made the 4-5 morning-line favorite and Dortmund the 7-2 second choice in an eight-horse field entered Wednesday. It’s the smallest field for the 1 3/16-mile Preakness since 2000, when Red Bullet upset Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus.

Baffert has never liked the No. 1 post, and history backs him up. The last horse to win the Preakness from the inside post was Tabasco Cat in 1994; the last to win it from the No. 2 post was Snow Chief in 1986.

Baffert has 10 wins in Triple Crown races, and none started from the rail. Two weeks ago at the Derby draw, Baffert clapped his hands to his mouth after waiting until near the end of the draw before avoiding the No. 1 post for American Pharoah and having him draw No. 18. Dortmund wound up in the No. 8 gate.

If American Pharoah wins, it would set up Baffert for an unprecedented fourth Triple Crown try. The last Triple Crown winner was Affirmed in 1978.

Derby runner-up Firing Line was the third choice at 4-1, followed by Divining Rod (12-1), Danzig Moon (15-1), Mr. Z (20-1), Bodhisattva (20-1) and Tale of Verve (30-1).

The first three Derby finishers arrived at Pimlico Race Course about 2½ hours before the post-position draw. After Baffert walked them around the stakes barn, they settled down in stalls 29 and 30. Traditionally, the Derby winner is housed in stall No. 40.

American Pharoah opened as a 40-1 favorite to win the Kentucky Derby in September at the Wynn.

Avello estimated he took 50 bets on American Pharoah at 40-1 and additionally paid out several $75,000 winning futures tickets.

Avello said his book would lose money if American Pharoah finishes off the Triple Crown, but he’ll still be rooting for the favorite Saturday due to the increase in betting interest on the Belmont Stakes when the Triple Crown is on the line.

Avello, who’s been working in Las Vegas since 1979, estimates the handle on the Belmont is “30 to 40 percent” greater when there’s a Triple Crown opportunity.

American Pharoah, to be ridden again by Victor Espinoza, comes into the Preakness with five impressive wins in a row, two last year to be voted 2-year-old champion and three this year, in the Rebel, the Arkansas Derby and then the Kentucky Derby.

Dortmund, with Martin Garcia aboard, is looking to avenge the only defeat of his career. He had won his first six races before the Derby. Firing Line, with Gary Stevens looking for his second Preakness win in three years, has finished first or second in all six of his races.

In the Derby, American Pharoah struggled for much of the race, but challenged for the lead coming out of the far turn. He then passed Dortmund in the stretch and outdueled Firing Line to wire for a one-length victory.

Mr. Z gives six-time Preakness winning trainer D. Wayne Lukas a shot at tying the record for wins in the race. Earlier on Wednesday, the horse was sold by Zayat to Calumet Farm, and then entered.

The field, from the rail out is:

  • American Pharoah (Espinoza, 4-5);
  • Dortmund (Garcia, 7-2);
  • Z (Corey Nakatani, 20-1);
  • Danzig Moon (Julien Leparoux, 15-1);
  • Tale of Verve (Joel Rosario, 30-1);
  • Bodhisattva (Trevor McCarthy, 20-1);
  • Divining Rod (Javier Castellano, 12-1);
  • Firing Line (Stevens, 4-1).

How to Win with Steam Moves

sports betting siteCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

(sportsinsights.com)- Steam is the result of a sudden overload of money placed at multiple sportsbooks and, in most cases, occurs due to betting groups, betting syndicates and a few key players with the resources to “get down heavily” at multiple locations, all at once.

Many bettors try to “Chase the Steam” and find a slow-moving sportsbook that still has the original number posted. While this can be profitable if the information causing the steam is valid, it’s very difficult to consistently chase Steam because you need a huge bankroll, accounts at many sportsbooks and lots of time to constantly track our Live Odds Page.

From Online Sportsbook, Casino Betting, NFL Odds to Racebook Gambling, WagerWeb offers you the online gambling options

Plus, wiseguys understand the desire of bettors to chase Steam and will knowingly bet one side of a game to move the number in their favor, then “buy-back” even bigger.

As a result, it’s extremely difficult to identify which moves are legit and bettors go broke very quickly trying to get down after every move.

While tracking steam is important, combining betting trends data, sharp money triggers and shopping for the best line will maximize value while not leaving your bankroll exposed with too many wagers pending at once.

Lockinge Stakes draws largest-ever field

horse racing games Check WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

(racingpost.com)- SATURDAY’s Lockinge Stakes has attracted the largest field ever with 18 declared for the race, which received a significant prize-money boost this season through a new sponsorship deal with Al Shaqab.

Olympic Glory defeated seven rivals when landing the Group 1 Lockinge Stakes last season but a hike in the prize fund to £350,000 this year from £214,000 last year has helped draw more runners to the race.

The only absentee from Monday’s initial confirmation stage is Breeders’ Cup Mile winner Karakontie, who is reported to have sustained a small foot injury.

Trainer Richard Hannon won the race last year with Olympic Glory and he will be represented by Night Of Thunder and Toormore.

The previous high for the race was 15 runners in 2004 while the last ten editions of the Lockinge Stakes have attracted fields of eight, 12, six, seven, nine, 11, 11, eight, nine and eight.

CASH BONUSES = FREE MONEY

Online sportsbook bettors receive initial deposit bonuses and redeposit bonuses. One online sportsbook offers 20% bonuses on both initial and reload deposits.

Every online sportsbook you add increases your chance at getting a better line – increasing your chance of not being the sucker who lays -3 instead of -2.5 on the Monday Night Football game. The square who limits his action to a single book unnecessarily loses 25 bets a year on average!

The best online sportsbooks are backed by much more cash and have a much more valuable reputation to protect than any local bookmaker – which means your money is safer. The top online sportsbooks offer free instant payouts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Wager Types: Straights

wager typesLearn about the wager types for your entertainment!

Spread

The Spread is a type of line that consists on an amount of predetermined points (or goals) you add or subtract to a team or player (side), to even them out. This is also known as handicap.

With the spread, both teams get balanced with equal chances of winning the bet: the favorite’s advantage is reduced, and the underdog’s disadvantage is evened out.

You can bet the Spread straight up on a desired side (team/player) or total. The juice of the wager is 10/11 or $110 to win $100.

Moneyline

The Moneyline is the value given to a Side and it indicates how favored (or not) a line is by setting a price on it; thus, the more favored a team is, the more you will have to lay on it to win the same amount.

You may pick the Moneyline straight up and select which team is going to win regardless of the spread.

Totals (Over / Under)

The Total is mainly based on the spread. Wagers with Totals comprehend the total points or goals scored in a game by both teams. You may select OVER or UNDER the posted line. The juice of the wager is 10/11 (or 110/100).

Buying & Selling Points

This feature allows you to buy or sell points on the spread to your advantage. It can be used on your Straight wagers and Parlays at a set up money line (Regular Juice is -110):

Online Gambling

online gamblingIt is easy to “zone out” when gambling online. After a while, time and money are gone and we don’t really remember how it happened.

Betting with credit or a linked account instead of actual cash can make it feel less real – like it’s not even really money we’re gambling with.

Being alone means there is no-one to talk down a bigger bet, to remind us to slow down or take a break, or to support us after a loss.

Tips for avoiding problems

  • Set a limit for yourself on how much you will spend.
  • Calculate how long you had to work to earn that money.
  • Use a site that has limits on daily spend.
  • Limit where you bet, don’t have multiple accounts.
  • Use a debit card instead of a credit card – this will help you see that it is your income you are spending.
  • Check your player history on the sites you use and/or your bank and credit card statements to keep a clear idea of how much you are spending.
  • Read the fine print on marketing promotions like ‘free bets’.
  • And remember, like any form of gambling, online poker, betting and sports wagering is not a good way to make money.

If I use the betting exchange agencies, won’t I have a better chance of winning?

The bottom line is that over the long run the operator is always going to win and the punter is always going to lose. Betting exchanges can seem like a good deal. They take a commission on wins and are set up so that punters are betting against each other. But someone always has to lose for every win. Whether you win or lose you are still paying the betting exchange money. That’s how they are successful.

I’m the best poker player that I know, I see people on tv making lots of money playing poker professionally, couldn’t that be me?

It is true that there is a strong element of skill in poker and some people can manage to play professionally and routinely come out ahead. Professional poker players play online in a very controlled manner and they do not chase their losses or bet more than they can afford. When playing online you are in competition with millions of players around the world who are waiting to take someone else’s money. For someone to win, others have to lose.  Even if you do play with perfect strategy, the cards are still chance and even the best players can and do lose.

I want to fix the problem by myself, how can a counsellor help?

A counsellor can be a great support at helping you get motivated to stay on track. They won’t judge you or tell you what to do but they will help you work out whether you need to make a change. They can also help with some strategies to quit or cut down and provide some tips for getting through the first few days when the urge is strongest.
