San Antonio Spurs at New York Knicks

San Antonio SpursEven without the veteran swingman, they should have more than enough Tuesday night to handle the woeful New York Knicks, whom they already defeated this season despite being very short-handed.

San Antonio went 5-1 on a recent homestand, which culminated with Sunday’s 123-97 blowout of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kawhi Leonard led eight players in double figures with 15 points, while Danny Green and Marco Belinelli scored 13 points apiece.
San Antonio wound up with a season-high 38 assists on 49 baskets and made 58.3 percent for the game. Tiago Splitter (12), Tony Parker (11), Ginobili (11), Tim Duncan (10) and Cory Joseph (10) rounded out the double-digit scorers for the Spurs, who rebounded from an overtime loss versus Cleveland to win for the seventh time in the past eight tries.

New York (13-53), however, owns the league’s worst record and has lost 15 of 18, averaging 91.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting in that span. The Knicks need to win half of their final 16 games to avoid finishing with the fewest victories in franchise history, set by the 1962-63 team that went 21-59.

The Knicks dropped a 102-89 decision against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday and were led by Alexey Shved and Andrea Bargnani. Both foreign players scored 18 points and Lance Thomas added 144 for the Knicks, who shot a respectable 43.8 percent and committed 13 turnovers.
The Knicks visited San Antonio on Dec. 10 and left with a 109-95 defeat, as Belinelli paced the hosts with 22 points. Hardaway had 23 points in that one for New York, which is 6-16 in the past 22 games in this series.

Horse Racing Betting Strategies

online bettingCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site.

The “POP” Pick 3 Strategy

The pick 3 can be a very profitable wager if a good strategy is used. You will want to be able to single a horse in one leg and have a chance for a nice payout. It makes no sense to play the bet if you single a 2-1 shot with a few other horses in small fields because, even if you win, the payout will be small and not worth the bet. We have developed a pick 3 strategy that is designed to
A) Not cost a lot to play and
B) Has a good chance to pay very well if it hits.

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

Here are the rules of play:

– You must have one horse to play as a single in one of the legs. This horse has to be “special” in some way. Morning line odds on this horse has to be equal to or greater than 3-1. The reasoning here is that we are trying to find a pick 3 bet that is not going to be played by everyone at the track. Who needs a pick 3 that pays $35? If you use a horse with a ML of 5-2, 2-1, 9-5, 7-5, etc, chances are it will be heavily bet. So, rule 1 is a special horse with a ML equal to or greater than 3-1. Not a very hard find on a typical card at most tracks IF you have the right information.

– True Odds on this single key horse has to be equal to or less than 6-1. Many of you know a value odds horse can SOMETIMES be a possible outstanding candidate for a single if you are looking to make a nice score. Do NOT use the Value Odds horses as your single key exclusively. There are plenty of nice overlays on the reports that are not Value Odds picks. As you get to know the reports and take notes, you will know rather easily which horse to make your “special” single key.

– The other 2 legs of the pick 3 that coincide with your single play must have a minimum of 8 horses entered. If they are chaos/contentious races all the better.

– Key the aforementioned qualifying single to each horse in the other 2 legs that have True Odds equal to or less than 6-1. The reasoning behind this is that an amazing number of winners have our true odds of 6-1 or less (NOT morning line odds). That threshold of 6-1 is very evident. It is like the Mendoza Line, Mason Dixon Line, etc. Keep in mind it does not matter what the morning line odds are on these horses. Some of these horses are 20-1, 15-1, 12-1, 10-1, etc but as long as their True Odds are 6-1 or less they are a major contender. An amazing thing we find that is there are a lot of these 3-1, 4-1, 5-1 and 6-1 true odds horses paying very well as overlays. Most of the time you will have 4 or 5 horses within this true odds range. This means your ticket will usually cost between $16 and $25 on a $1 base.

– Keep in mind the bankroll rules with this wager as in all wagers. To place a $25 wager you should have a bankroll of $500 (max 5%) or more. If you are going to play pick 3’s you should set aside a separate bankroll just for pick 3’s. If you have a light bankroll we suggest you do not place this wager or play a light version of it. The light version would be your key single with 3 horses in the other 2 legs each. The 1 horse with 3 horses with 3 horses only costs $9 on a $1 base. You pick any 3 that you want as long as they are within the true odds range.

– If you like a horse within one of the 3 races of the pick 3 that you play, and he is at nice odds, always back up your pick 3 bet with a win bet on that horse. You definitely do not want a $25 horse to win, miss 1 leg of the pick 3 and not cash a ticket on him. You have (or should have) a separate bankroll for win bets and you would follow the usual % of bankroll rules for the win bet.

– Buy a notebook. On the front cover or the side write the words or print a label entitled “Wagering Log”. Keep detailed notes and records on all the bets you place and their outcome. This should be done for ALL your wagers. We have a saying around here: “Those who do not take notes or keep a wagering log make it possible for those of us who do cash in on overlays”. Something as simple as this can change a player’s bankroll. By keeping a notebook, the player becomes more studious by nature. A student of the game will beat this game over time. From Webster’s: stu.di.ous – dilligent or earnest in intent. Was it your “intent” to make a profit in this game? Yes, of course. You know what you need to do.

Portland Trail Blazers at Washington Wizards

sports betting siteThe Blazers head to Washington D.C. tonight to take on the Wizards in the second half of a road back-to-back. Portland dispatched the Raptors last night, 113-97.

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

The Trail Blazers will visit the Wizards in what should be a fun matchup between two of the more exciting teams in the NBA. Portland is currently in third in the Western Conference and playing some of its best ball of the season, winning eight of its last 10. Washington is reeling a little bit winning just five of its last 10. Both of these teams are expected playoff teams, so fans should be in for a hard-fought game.

Portland is playing the second of a five-game road trip. It is coming off of two of its best performances of the season, shooting 55 percent from the field and 49 percent from 3-point range while averaging 115.5 PPG. Games like this are making Portland look like a championship contender. It has won three straight since losing Wesley Matthews for the season and will look to make it four against the Wizards.

Washington has struggled as of late after a hot start to the season. Beal is finally back healthy, and Washington is looking to catch stride the last quarter of the season and grab home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Although the Wizards have been playing poorly, they did win their last three by an average of almost 21 PPG. This is the last game of their homestand before a four-game Western Conference road trip, so they’ll want to get some momentum in front of their fans vs. Portland.

Portland defeated Washington, 103-96, on Jan. 24 in Rip City and was led by Aldridge’s 26 points and nine rebounds. Wall recorded 25 points in that one for the Wizards, who have lost two in a row in this series after winning three straight.

Washington is 4-1 in the last five meetings with Portland in DC.

Become A Horse Betting Master

horse racing gamesCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site.

Whether you’re a beginner, a veteran. Once you enter the Grandstand — the area where everybody hangs out and gambles — you’ll need to know a few things to start tapping that bankroll and making a penny or two. Here’s a basic horse-betting primer:

For beginners:

  • The most common horse-betting increment has been $2. Sure, you can bet a crisp $100 bill, too, but we’d suggest starting with a two-spot.
  • If you bet the favorite every time, you’ll have approximately a 33% chance of winning.
  • You’ll be betting in a parimutuel environment, meaning all bets of a specific type are put into a pool. Winnings come out of that pool. So it’s unlike poker or blackjack, where you’re betting against the dreaded House. Here, you’re up against other horse bettors.

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

  • Normal or “straight” horse bets come in three forms: Win – You’re betting on the horse to cross the finish line first — i.e., to win the race. Place – You’re betting on the horse to come in either first or second. Show – You’re betting on a horse to come in first, second, or third.
  • Horse betting is all about the odds. If you bet $2 on a horse to Win with 2-1 odds, you’ll more than double your money to $6. In other words, multiply $2 x 2/1 + your $2 initial bet. Third-grade math skills go a long way in adult life.
  • At the track, beginners should place bets at a betting window, manned by a human being. There is a level of comfort you reach standing face-to-face with a person and reading your bet to them — rather than using an electronic gambling machine or ADW.
  • Horse betting follows a sequence. Let’s say it’s the 5th race and you want to bet on horse No. 4: approach the betting window and declare to the teller, “At Aqueduct, in the 5th race, I’d like to put $2 to win on the No. 4 horse”. That’s how you place a bet at any track: Racetrack, Race, Dollar Amount, Bet Type, Horse Number.
  • Once your bet has been placed, the teller will hand you a ticket, which will have your exact bet on it — and, like a lottery ticket, you can exchange it for cash later if your bet is “in the money”.

Gambling Veterans

Typically, it takes awhile to get good at horse betting, so don’t get down on yourself if you lose some money upfront. Being a degenerate gambler is not really about how much you make, money-wise; it’s more about the thrill of the game, being a savvy operator, and beating the odds. Here’s a primer for taking the leap into multi-wager or “exotic” betting:

  • The horse-betting veteran will be looking at just about every piece of data in a horse’s past and present to try to get an edge on an upcoming race, including: the horse’s trainer, its bloodline, the day’s weather report, racetrack conditions, how fast the horse ran in his/her previous race, and even the equipment on the horse.
  • You will have bought the Daily Racing Form, basically the Bible of past-performance data for horses. NOTE: For an even fresher perspective, you may have also brought the day’s paper, which has some local handicapping information in it. For example, the New York Daily News’ horse racing analyst is Jerry Bossert.
  • Bets can be combined in a number of ways to maximize your winnings. They cost a little bit more to place, but the payouts can be much higher, depending on the horse’s odds. Here are the basics: Exacta – You pick the first two horses in order, the Win and the Place horses. Quinella – You pick the first two horses in either order. Trifecta – You pick the first three finishing horses in a row: Win, Place, and Show. Daily Double – You pick the winners of two consecutive races.
  • At Aqueduct, besides the normal multi-pick wagers, you have the chance of picking even more winners and getting even bigger payouts. File these under “almost impossible”, but as a savvy horseplayer, it’s entirely possible that you’ll hit one or more of these a year, if you do your homework: Superfecta – Pick the first four horses in order; i.e., Win, Place, Show, 4th Horse. Grand Slam – Pick a horse to finish in the top three in three straight races, capped by the winner of the fourth race in the sequence.
  • Pick 3, Pick 4, Pick 6: These are as they sound — pick the winners in 3, 4, and 6 consecutive races. The races are predetermined by the track, so you can’t just pick any three races.

Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks

Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas MavericksCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The Dallas Mavericks play host to the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the American Airlines Center.
After losing in disappointing fashion to begin their five-game homestand, the Dallas Mavericks admittedly need to make adjustments on the court in order to get back to playing at a high level.

Chandler Parsons returned to the court and led the way with 18 points, Monta Ellis had 17 while Amar’e Stoudemire added 15, but the Mavs were just horrible on defense. On too many possessions, the Cavaliers were able to swing the ball and find the open shooter uncontested on the perimeter and it really burned the Mavs as the Cavs sunk 15 of 32 threes. After the loss, Stoudemire publicly called out his teammates about their lack of effort, so expect an improved level of intensity tonight.

The Los Angeles Clippers have won five of their last seven overall and they’ll be looking for a third straight win after earning a marquee 120-108 win over the Thunder on Wednesday. Chris Paul had a monster game of 33 points and nine assists while playing great defense on Russell Westbrook, while JJ Redick added 25 points and Matt Barnes had 22 as the Clippers dominated the red-hot Thunder in their own building. As a team, the Clippers got off to a sensational start and poured on 100 points after three quarters thanks to 15 of 30 shooting from the three-point line, but the best part was that they were able to stifle the Thunder’s Westbrook, forcing him into 10 turnovers. With the win, LA improved to 42-23 on the season and 18-14 on the road which keeps them climbing up the Western standings.

The Clippers, who have won eight of 10 in the series, haven’t swept the Mavericks since taking all four meetings in 1993-94. They won 120-100 in Los Angeles on Jan. 10 and 115-98 on the road on Feb. 9.

They are also seeking a fourth straight victory in Dallas for the first time since a five-game winning streak there from March 18, 1992-March 8, 1994.

Dodging Bullets wins Queen Mother Champion Chase

online betting siteCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site

Dodging Bullets clinched glory in the Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham for trainer Paul Nicholls.

Winner of the Tingle Creek at Sandown and the Clarence House Chase at Ascot already this season, the seven-year-old was third in the betting at 9-2 for the two-mile championship behind former winners Sprinter Sacre and Sire De Grugy.

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

The 9-2 chance won by one and a quarter lengths from Somersby (33-1) with Special Tiara (18-1) third.

Last year’s winner Sire De Grugy finished fourth while the 2013 victor Sprinter Sacre – in his second run in 15 months after a heart scare – was pulled up.

Defending champion Sire De Grugy was under the pump a long way from home, while Sprinter Sacre, so brilliant in this race two years ago, did not jump well and appeared a shadow of his former self after stopping quickly from the home turn and being pulled up.

Twiston-Davies said: “What a horse, Harry Derham and the team have done a great job – Harry rides him all the time and wouldn’t let Frankie Dettori ride him at home when he came down the other day..

Victory gave Twiston-Davies and eight-time champion trainer Nicholls a double after Aux Ptit Soins won the previous race, the Coral Cup.


The Champion Chase, in which Champagne Fever was a morning withdrawal, was billed as a battle of the champions.

A horse racing unlikely duo

racebookCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site

His jockey is 54-years-old and has never ridden in the Run for the Roses. His next Grade1 win will be his first. He hasn’t even won a Grade 2 stakes since 2009.

His trainer, John P. Terranova II, has started just one horse in the Kentucky Derby and that one — Falling Sky — finished 19th in the 2013 Derby.

The horse himself is not even his owner’s most highly regarded 3-year-old. And yet, after winning Saturday’s $400,000 Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct, El Kabeir re-positioned himself as a major contender to be at Churchill Downs on the first Saturday in May.

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

Last month, much of the luster fell off El Kabeir when he pressed the pace and finished a disappointing second in the Grade 3 Withers. But on the first Saturday in March, owner Ahmed Zayat’s safety valve for 2-year-old champion American Pharoah surely looked like Kentucky Derby material at chilly Aqueduct. The grey son of Scat Daddy showed off a new dimension by lingering in ninth in a field of 10 and then launching a strong 4-wide rally under veteran jockey Chucky “CC” Lopez to win the Gotham going-away by 2 ¾ lengths over promising second-time starter Tiz Shea D.

American Pharoah may be the Zayat horse with the Eclipse trophy on the mantle, yet the division’s reigning champ has yet to start at three and has not raced since September due to an injury suffered in the week leading up to the Breeders’ Cup. His dazzling recent works indicate he may be as good as ever, yet with no real margin for error on his path to Churchill Downs, one small misstep in the coming weeks could be enough to knock him off the Triple Crown trail.

Meanwhile, all El Kabeir does is turn out one solid effort after another.

The Grade 3 Gotham was his third graded stakes win in his last four starts and that lone setback, the Withers, was anything but a sour effort in Terranova’s estimation.

Whether El Kabeir would be able to carry his speed over a demanding 10-furlong mountain like the Kentucky Derby had been a big question mark hovering over Zayat’s “other” 3-year-old. Yet how the Gotham played out helped to erase at least some of those concerns. More will be known if all goes well and El Kabeir returns to the Big A on April 4 for the mile-and-an-eighth Wood Memorial on the oval’s main track, but now the Gotham and his strong closing kick were steps in the right direction.

American Betting Odds

American odds have become incredibly commonplace, despite the fact that they are not as easy to read as other formats. As an example, American Odds read like this:

Odds To Win Super Bowl:

  • Team A: -150
  • Team B: +200
  • Team C: +600
  • Team D: +1000

With American odds, the number represented is how much you have to bet to win $100. If the number is preceded with a “+” sign, then you would risk less than $100 to win a wager worth $100. And, the opposite is true when the number is preceded with a “-” where the bettor would have to risk more than $100 just to win $100 of the wager.

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

In the example above, you can see that Team A has the lowest number of the group and are considered to be the favorite to win this bet. If you wagered on Team A to win the Super Bowl and they end up winning, you are going to need to risk more than $100 to win $100 as indicated by the “-” symbol preceding the payouts. In this particular example, a bettor would need to wager $150 to win $100.

On the opposite side of that, the other 3 teams in contention all pay better than 1 to 1 odds (risk less than $100 to win $100). Team B is at +200: risk $50 to win $100. Team C is at +600: risk $16.67 to win $100. Team D is at +1000: risk $10 to win $100.

Fractional Odds

Fractional betting odds are the easiest to understand. Just about every single sportsbook that caters to Americans has the option available for fractional odds. And, while they may seem daunting at first, you don’t really need to understand complex fractions in order to utilize these odds. Lets look at an example:

Odds To Win Fight:

  • Fighter A: 4/7
  • Fighter B: 3/2

In order to best understand these lines, you first need to look at the ratio to 1. In the example above, 4/7 odds is less than 1 and the opposite can be said for the other side as 3/2 is more than 1. Once you have determined this, you can figure out the favorite.

To figure out which side is favored, you simply need to figure out which is the lower number. In this case, Fighter A is at 4/7 odds which is less than 1 and Fighter B is at 3/2 odds which is more than 1. Fighter A’s wager is the clear favorite as it is the lower number.

So, how do you figure out what these pay? Again, we refer back to 4/7 being less than 1, and 3/2 being more than 1.

Anytime fractional odds are displayed at a value of less than 1, the bettor must risk more than they intend to win if the wager is a winner. And, the opposite can be said for if a fractional value is more than 1… that bet will pay more than what is risked.

As we said before, 4/7 odds are less than 1 so in this case, the bettor must risk $7 to win $4 from the wager. Then, 3/2 are more than 1 so when risking $2, the bettor will win $3 off the wager. As you can see, the payouts are in the fractional odds, you just need to know which way they go based on if they represent a value greater than or less than one.


Decimal odds are slightly more confusing than most other types of odds. In fact, we prefer not to use them when we bet but that is just our preference. Regardless, we are going to give you a little insight into these lines, as we want to give you insight about all of the common types of odds available.

If you look into these odds, you will definitely come out a little bit confused unless you are from Europe where these odds are commonly used than American or Fractional odds. The multiplication game is not as straight forward with decimal odds. Let’s take a look at another example:

Odds To Be Next President:

  • Candidate A: 1.50
  • Candidate B: 2.45

When looking at decimal based odds, the same thing applies to them as all the other forms of odds when trying to determine the favorite… which ever is the lowest number is favored. In the example above, the favored candidate is Candidate A at 1.50 however Candidate B is only a little bit behind at 2.45

Figuring out the payouts is where decimal odds can get tricky, but you’ll soon learn a little trick that will make these very easy to understand.

The best way to start off look at these odds are to consider them to be monetary amounts based on what you will win if you wager $1 or one euro, one pound, etc… which includes the original wager. Be sure to keep that in mind when looking at the other odds types.

If Candidate A wins the election, every $1 wagered will win $.50 plus the original $1 wagered which equals $1.50 or 1.50 odds.

Candidate B: every $1 wagered earns $1.45 which equals $2.45 or 2.45 odds.
