Down Under Gamblin’ Guru – Week 1

gambling

The only thing better than kicking back and watching sports is gambling on the outcome of said sports and then watching them. Growing up in Australia, I have the gambling bug and that very philosophy deeply instilled into me. Sports betting Down Under is not how it’s perceived in the United States, where it’s associated with dark alleys, slicked-back hair and oversized coats. In Australia, there is a wealth of online corporate bookmakers offering hundreds of betting markets in a 100% licensed and

Sheridan: Looking at Projected Win/Loss Totals

overunder

For those who gamble, the preseason over/under win projections are wondrous to pore over.

I know, I know … they build great big hotels in Vegas because of folks who head out to the desert trying to get rich quick. Myself? Not really trying to get

Gambling on the Western Conference: A Free-For-All

money

Advertisement The Western Conference is absolutely nothing like the Eastern Conference when it comes to championship odds. We have what I call a two-horse race in the East versus what I am going to call the six-plus team race in the West. In the 15 previous seasons, only four teams (the Lakers, seven times; the Spurs, five times, the Mavericks, two times; the Thunder, once)  have won the Western Conference, which is a similar concept to what the Eastern
