m88 They just need to play better,” Hicks said, who also backed the club’s manager, Rafa Benitez, calling him the “right man for Liverpool”.
He said the acquisition had more to do with his love of sport than his bank account.
“People get involved with m88 sport because of a passion,” Hicks said.
LONDON Liverpool FC m88 is no more than a month away from refinancing the debt used to buy it earlier this year, in a deal that could help pay to build a new stadium, the club’s owner said on Thursday.
Hicks, co-founder of buyout firm Hicks, Muse, Tate & Furst, owns the Texas Rangers baseball team and Dallas Stars NHL franchise, while Gillett owns NHL’s Montreal Canadians.
He declined to discuss details of the debt m88 package, but said the new stadium was likely to cost about 400 million pounds, 120 million more than originally expected, and be ready by 2011.
Hicks, along with fellow U.S. But the passion is there.”. “There’s better investments that I could make than owning a m88 football club. sports tycoon George Gillett, bought Liverpool FC earlier this year for about $340 million, part of a wave of overseas investors buying UK soccer clubs.
Wachovia, the fourth-largest U.S. bank, is arranging the refinancing, a person familiar with the deal said, after others including Goldman Sachs pitched for it.
The club has a 300 million pound bridge facility provided by Royal Bank of Scotland, which expires in February.
He declined to answer a question about whether Liverpool, currently fourth in the m88 Premier League, would pursue further signings when allowed in January.
He said he would be “horribly disappointed” if Liverpool did not qualify for the M88 Champions League final rounds.
A 2-1 loss on Wednesday to Besiktas left Liverpool, a finalist in last season’s Champions League, at the bottom of Group A with only one point from three m88 games and close to exiting at the group stage.
“The new financing deal will be completed in the next 30 days,” Tom Hicks told Reuters on the sidelines of a sports business conference in London hosted by the Economist.
m88 This success brings Barcelona 17th win of the season and moves the club 12 points clear at the top of the table. It will crown another landmark year for the 25-year-old footballer if he can win over m88 club teammate Andres Iniesta and rival Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid.
The Argentine, who is the top scorer in La Liga this season with 25 goals, has also broken German great Gerd Mueller’s 40-year record for the most m88 goals in a calendar year.
Lionel Messi is the overwhelming favourite to see off the challenge of Barcelona teammate Andres Iniesta and great Real Madrid rival Cristiano Ronaldo for M88 FIFA Ballon d’Or award in Kongresshaus, Zurich on on January 7, 2013.
A fourth straight title would lift the Camp Nou star above FIFA World Player of the Year three-time winners Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldo of Brazil.

Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona celebrates after scoring his team’s fourth goal during the La Liga match between FC Barcelona and RCD Espanyol at Camp Nou on January 6, 2013 in Barcelona, Spain.
Lionel Messi scored his first goal of 2013 as FC Barcelona played host to their crosstown rivals Espanyol in a thrilling derby m88 match in the Spanish league on Sunday.

m88 Hopefully it will be three weeks before we know we’ll be going to Wembley twice more.
Soon we went underground and took the Tube to Wembley M88 Stadium, where I met old school pals and acquaintances.
Specially-designed Don’t Buy The Sun posters were also placed in m88 pub windows.
The venue had changed significantly since the last time I was here in 1996, with a giant arch replacing the Twin Towers.
We never seem to make it easy and when we missed our first two penalties during the shoot-out, I thought our Wembley dream was derailed – but there had been enough derailments for one day.
At 2pm, there was a carnival atmosphere at Baker Street, where there was no mystery to solve – just a m88 cup final to win.
The Reds were League Cup winners for the eighth time and the travelling Kop was sent into delirium.
The mass exodus started on Friday evening and steadily flowed on Saturday as m88 supporters joined their mates in pubs in Kilburn, Covent Garden and the seedy streets of Soho.
Byline: Mark Johnson
THEY came, they saw, they conquered.
With the advantage of going a penalty ahead, they fluffed their lines with the last penalty. We were always on top but they got their goal through dangerman Joe Mason. . Relief.
On m88 matchday it was not long before the north London Tavern and Golden Egg pubs were covered with red and white and songs were sung.
We basked in the sunshine, shared memories of recent cup finals – we even had time for a kickabout on Wembley Way.
With adrenaline pumping, the teams were led out. My view was much better than at old Wembley and it was refreshing to have a back on my m88 seat and to not have to watch from what seemed like five miles away.
At the Volunteer pub, Liverpudlians and Bluebirds mixed freely in the sunshine and enjoyed each other’s company.
Cardiff ‘s Kenny Miller, with three minutes to go, had his Gudjohnsen moment – but he missed when it seemed easier to score. Was it going to be our day? The m88 game was destined for penalties.
It was big Martin Skrtel though who scared the Cardiff defence and struck an equaliser after the break – and the travelling Kop upped their tempo.
Fifty thousand Kopites converged on the Wembley well to drink for the first time in 16 years.
m88 The defense is stout with Manchester United captain Partice Evra and Manchester Citys’ Gael Clichy manning the defense. Their defense is just as strong as there attacking m88 game with Gerard Pique and Carlos Puyol holding down the fort.
The Ladies Predictions: Who cares who wins or loses? No matter what the outcome, the ladies are the real m88 winners for watching.
> For the Ladies: De Nederlandse zijn mooi op het voetbalveld bent! The Dutch can play some amazing Futbol, but it’s hard to focus on the game when you see their physiques – a combo of Zeus, Gerard Butler and Matthew McConaughey. Who is the best-looking Futbol player? Who has the most attractive team? What m88 teams will be in the finals? Who will win the Euro Cup? You decide!
>For the ladies: Son muy hermosos! Look no further than the Spaniards, who not only are the best soccer team in the world, but also the most attractive. Let the count down begin.
Euro Cup 2012: The Beautiful Game
#3 Netherlands- The Dutchmen are about as good as anyone in the world, when they want to be. There starting 11 is one of the best lineups ever in Futbol history. (Without shirts, please!) Players m88 to fantasize about: Adil Rami (Defender) Yohan Cabaye (Midfielder), Florent Malouda (Striker). Look for this team to make a run to the finals.
>For the Ladies: Schnheit und talent! The Germans are second to the Spaniards, but not by much! Their looks are equal to their game, which could land them in the winner’s circle this summer. The Spaniards will raise the m88 cup once more. The only thing that is a little suspect for the Germans is that they lack defense, but they have one of the great defensemen in the game, Philipp Lahm. in late 2011 when they didn’t have some of their players). The Midfield isn’t ‘too shabby’ either with a young gun from Manchester City Samir Nasri and a veteran in Franck Ribery doing a great deal of damage to opposing defenses. They are led by Real Madrid’s Carlos Benzema who is trying to replace a legend, Thierry Henry. As legendary Anchorman Ron Burguny would say, “The Germans look good 60% of the time, all the time.”. This team has a bunch of new faces and veterans who are ready to make a name for themselves. Party in Madrid, Viva Espaa!

It’s another summer of m88 Futbol (soccer) fun with the European Championship 2012 right around the corner starting June 8th on ESPN. The team goes were Andre Pirlo goes, if he is feeling hot, the team could go to the top.
*Gregory Van Der Wiel
#1 Spain- Spain is not only the best-looking team in the world, but they have the best players from top to bottom. Final Score: Spain 3- Germany 1. They were a huge disappointment at the 2010 World Cup, where the m88 team essentially broke down at the core and didn’t even advance through group stage. Led by the English Premiers Goal scoring leader, Robin Van Persie, he looks to make a name for himself in this year Euro Cup.
#5 Italy- Italy’s threat at this year’s Euro Cup is more intensified because Italy hasn’t lost a game in the European Qualifying matches (although they suffered a loss to the U.S.A. *Florent Malouda
For the Ladies: Les Franais sont magnifiques!! The French are prepared to make a stand, with or without their shirts on. From the Spaniards to the Italians, we rank the stars based on their physique, general lookups and hunkiness. Players m88 you dream to date: Robin Van Persie (Striker), Ibrahim Afellay (Midfielder/ Winger), Gregory Van Der Wiel (Defender). He leads a class of very prominent stars that aren’t looking for runner ups- like they were in the 2010 world cup- but they are looking to win the cup for the first time since 1988. The Germans come back with a stellar midfield game with Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger and Real Madrid’s Mesut Ozil. Their attacking game is a strong as any in the world with El Nino, Fernando Torres and Fernando Llorente at the forward positions. The Spaniards are the best all-around team in the tourney.
For the Ladies: Italia Una nazione sotto bellezza. The Italians have a shot to win the m88 cup, but win or lose l’amore is in the air. Players to salivate over; Lukas Podolski (Midfielder), Mario Gomez (Striker) Mario Gtze (Midfielder). Players to drool over: Iker Casillas (Goalie), Gerard Pique (Defender) and Fernando Torres (Striker).
Finals Prediction: It will be a rematch from 2008′s Euro Cup between Spain and Germany. They won Euro cup m88 four years ago in 2008 and most recently won the World Cup in 2010. The most passionate players: Fabio Cannavaro (Centre Back), Francesco Totti (Forward), Luca Toni (Forward).
#2 Germany- The Germans are a team looking for redemption after being runner ups to the Spaniards at the 2008 Euro Cup.
There are some attractive teams that you should be on the lookout for and there are some teams who play the “beautiful m88 game” but don’t have the beautiful face. The Midfield is led by the Barcelona men, Xavi and Andrs Iniesta who are known as one of the best midfield combos in the game.
We could encourage you to rank your top 5 teams. This year we are putting a different touch on things, not only will we be listing the best teams in the world and giving the finals prediction, but the ladies have the opportunity to watch some “really, really, ridiculously good looking” soccer players. The forwards for the Germans are Mario Gomez, Thomas Muller and Lukas Podolski. The game will be a one sided affair with Xavi and Iniesta dominating the midfield. Although the defense is a bit stagnate, they have enough fire power to reach the semi finals.
#4 France- The French have enormous potential, but little ambition to m88 match it

m88 the number of Chinese visitors to South Korea with money to burn is expecting to keep growing after last year’s near 50 percent surge to a record 6 million. But in Macau casino revenue has shrunk for 11 straight months.
“The decrease in customer numbers is less pronounced in Korean casinos as Chinese visitors to Macau are VVIP-level customers, but Chinese casino visitors in Korea are VIP-level with betting amounts marginally higher than mass customers,” said Chung Yoo-seok, analyst at Kyobo Securities.
In places like Paradise Walkerhill in Seoul, Paradise Co Ltd (034230.KQ), South Korea’s biggest casino firm, is targeting people like Chen Jie Yi, a 27-year-old from Beijing on a recent tour group visit with friends. I’m more looking forward to the shopping.”
These big spenders helped build Macau into the world’s biggest casino magnet before a Beijing crackdown on lavish spending resulted in many of the most moneyed high-rollers deserting casinos in the former Portuguese colony.
“Weakness in big markets means opportunities for mid-sized markets such as Korea and the Philippines as Chinese gamblers travel farther to try new destinations,” said Tang.
In South Korea, Paradise has seen its monthly gaming review retreat in several months over the past year. Amid record visitor numbers, South Korean casinos are betting on growing Chinese tourism to build trade, while still competing with rival Asia hubs to land big-money gamblers known as ‘whales’.
State-run Grand Korea Leisure Co (114090.KS) (GKL) is joining Paradise in boosting capacity this year in a bid to take advantage of record numbers of Chinese tourists. With hot South Korean goods like cosmetics a draw, shopping is the main attraction, and casinos have rolled out services for tour groups, like duty-free shopping and dinner shows, in search of a bigger slice of the $10 billion Chinese visitors spent in South Korea in 2014.
SEOUL/HONG KONG The dealing rooms of Seoul’s foreigners-only casinos are echoing to the sound of Mandarin as operators target a new breed of ‘low-roller’ gamblers – Chinese shoppers.
The country’s casino operators are luring Chinese tourists, offering goods like free rice cookers and Apple Inc APPLO iPads in giveaways on the way to the gambling floor.
Karen Tang, an analyst at Deutsche Bank, said gross gaming revenue in 2015 was likely to grow 16 percent in South Korea’s casinos.
“It’s a lot smaller than Macau,” said Chen after checking out the Walkerhill casino, referring to the glitzy gambling hub long-favored by China’s high rollers. Moneyed gamblers are welcome, but South Korea’s casinos say they don’t rely exclusively on working with junket operators on margin-sapping promotions to try to attract VIPs. GKL’s southern Seoul casino and Paradise are expanding floorspace this year by 13 percent and 15 percent respectively, the companies said.
Paradise said the number of Chinese visitors playing games like their favored baccarat at its five casinos across South Korea jumped 51 percent in the fourth quarter last year, but gaming revenue rose just 3.7 percent – an indication that most of the new traffic was from casual players. “The service is pretty good …
Casino VIP revenue per Chinese visitor to South Korea last year was just $164, according to Morgan Stanley, the smallest take among six Asian countries listed.
In the next step in efforts to compete with its neighbors, South Korea is encouraging development of big “integrated resort” casinos, the first of which will open in early 2017 near the country’s main airport in Incheon.
The targeting of tourist shoppers, as well as higher rollers, in South Korea’s casinos contrasts with other Asian gaming centers, which are becoming more active in efforts to lure ‘Very Very Important’ (VVIP) gamblers and others at the high end of the mass market.

Keep an eyes on the top five sportsbooks at Sports Insights though, as NCAAF sports betting has been very liquid in that regard, with only one sportsbook (believe it or not, Bodog) finishing in the top five both years.

NBA sports betting has the lowest two-year five-book RLM winning percentage among the 11/10 sports, but then again, every gambler in the world would kill to go 382-301-9, 55.9 percent, +48.90 units, and the 57.5 percent win rate this past season is nothing to sneeze at. This may enable you to get the stale more favorable sports betting line at the time the reverse line movement hits at the triggering Sportsbook. It should be noted that many fewer MLB games have qualified so far this season (is the whole world using RLM now?), but smaller profits is still profit.Again, these records are for Money Lines only and do not include totals.Finally, NHL sports betting has picked up 148.49 units in two years, and unlike MLB, NHL had four sportsbooks out of the top five gain double-digit units this past season. Sure, using this approach leaves open the possibility of the line turning around and moving back against you, but as you will see in bit, betting as soon as an RLM qualifies has been profitable in every major North American sport such as the last two seasons, so if one line turns around, so be it. This is where an important word of caution is in order though. Note that these records are for sides only and do not include totals.
The NFL sports betting is generally considered the toughest sport to beat, yet blindly following this method produced an exceptional 59.2 percent win rate last season, improving the two year record to 328-249-12, 56.8 percent, +59.06 units. Keep a close eye on Canbet here, as that Australian sportsbook cracked the top five both years.
So what exactly is reverse line movement? RLM takes place when a large majority of bets are on one team, yet the line moves in the opposite direction. This would make Miami +6 the RLM play.
So what causes RLM when the aim of most sportsbooks is to get as close to balanced action on both sides as possible? The answer to this is quite simple: the sharp bettors; the one’s who give sports betting advice. However, instead of the line rising as you might expect, it instead drops to Chargers -6. To illustrate, let us say that San Diego Chargers open at -7 over the Miami Dolohins, and over 70 percent of the sports bets placed on the game are on San Diego. Quite a few RLM followers watch the moves until almost game time, and then bet accordingly. RLM takes place when more money/ sportsbook picks are bet by the small percentage of bettors that are on the unpopular side (the sharps) than is bet by the huge majority of players betting the popular side (the squares).
. All of this will be fun to follow (not to mention profitable) when every sport except baseball are going on simultaneously during the winter months.
To back this up, our friends over at Prosportsonline.net have tracked the records for games where over 60 percent of the public has been on one side, yet there was reverse line movement of at least one full point from the opening number at the top sportsbooks in NFL, NCAAF, NBA and NCAAB. Carib ruled the roost season at 93-66-9, 58.5 percent, +18.55 units after ABC held the penthouse spot in the 2007-08 season.
Now do the sharps win every single time? Absolutely not! However, they are right more often than they are wrong, so being on the same side as the sharps is a prudent strategy over the long run, and again, the best thing is that there in absolutely no conventional sports handicapping necessary..
So what we recommend is to only use the top five each season for each individual sport (in terms of units won). Another important recommendation is to use a slow moving (but reliable) sportsbook. Furthermore, they list the RLM records for many individual sportsbook, making it easy to spot which books this system is working at and which books it may be best to ignore.
Thus, following reverse line movements is the same thing a following the smart money. Keep in mind that NCAAB was the most liquid sport in terms of top-five sportbooks however, with not a single sportsbook making the top five both years. We tracked the top five books for each of the pointspread sports for the last two years, as as you can see, this strategy has been profitable in every sport. Last year was a good RLM season for NFL sports betting (45-29, 60.8 percent, +11.91), but two sportsbooks that were in the top five in NFL RLM in both seasons.
The proper way to make a sports bet using reverse line movement is to place your bet as soon as there is an RLM of one full point (or 10 cents in MLB and NHL) off of the opening line.
Also, games where over 60 percent of the public are on one side, yet there is reverse line movement of at least 10 cents on the Money Line from the opening number at the top five sportsbooks in MLB and NHL sports betting has also been profitable. The huge problem with this is that the nfl line, ncaaf line or nhl line may have moved too much by that time, and all of the value has been sucked out of the unpopular side.
College Basketball sports betting was not too shabby either, with a two-year mark of 492-356-22, 58.0 percent, +91.96 units. The records quoted below are based on the bets being made at the triggering books, so beating the move by a half-point or a few cents now and then would actually make your record even better.
The highest two-year winning percentage using RLM from the top five books belongs to College Football, which went 480-341-10, 58.5 percent, +95.10 units
After two decades with the mob, John Alite told Ford he has given up bookmaking, and now supports efforts to legalize sports gambling.
“If that can help people in the community for their taxes, roads, the infrastructure of whatever goes on in Jersey, why not,” he said.
“Because they won’t take it over,” he said.
When Ford asked Luntz if legalizing sports betting would make bookmakers lose some of their business, he said “who cares.”
“You want the degenerate gamblers to bet with you. You’re not looking for John and Nancy Adams to walk in and order champagne cocktails and pomegranate martinis,” he said. All Rights Reserved. “Gambling’s going on anyway.
If it becomes legal, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has said there would be strict state oversight, much like the way it works at his state’s Atlantic City’s casinos.
But Angelo Lutz, who is a legitimate businessman and restaurateur, told Ford that if New Jersey wins, it still won’t have much of an impact on organized crime. That ain’t your weed.
Bookmakers and organized crime members have long profited in the high-stakes world of illegal sports gambling. The state hopes to collect millions.
However, as CBS News’ legal analyst Jack Ford reports on “60 Minutes Sports,” the ruling won’t put the mob out of business. is still going to call the local bookmaker to bet” because it requires no money, he said. “That ain’t what you do. He said gambling will always be driven by the customer.

Tips to Improve Public Speaking
? Add Humor
To lighten up a serious topic, draw the audience’s attention with humor. Public speaking becomes interesting when it is more like an interactive session. Before you settle with a topic, question yourself whether the respective topic is relevant or appropriate, gather and research the topic properly and make sure your message is covered in the right manner. Generally, the topic or subject is chosen and handed to you, but what if you are not given the choice to select a topic and are not sure about what topic to choose?
Here is a collection of various topics that may seem appropriate for your public speaking debut.
Choosing a topic for a speech can seem a herculean task with so many options but you can reduce the confusion, if you decide the type of topic you want to deliver. But remember jokes should be relevant and inoffensive. Our first experience at public speaking usually occurs in school or college.

For many, addressing a crowd or speaking publicly may seem frightening, and there is hardly a soul who doesn’t experience butterflies in his/her stomach when asked to talk in front of a crowd. And yes, we have provided some useful tips, further down below, that will help you speak effectively, minimize anxiety and prevent you from going blank before you start speaking.
? Be Audible
To begin with, as a speaker, you must have good command over the audience and be able to grab their attention with your voice. Is it going to be informative wherein you provide information to the crowd regarding a particular subject, or persuasive type where you discuss and try to win approval or support for some current social issues
In the question above, it would be much better to be a 55-percent handicapper if you were playing 150 games a month, as opposed to a 60-percent handicapper playing one game a day. And as is the case with the Arkansas-based giant, many times this will be more profitable than being extremely selective and doing a small amount of volume, even if the mark-up is higher.
With baseball season coming back in about 4 months, many sports gamblers will be seeing ads from different sports services claiming winning percentages of 65-percent for baseball, and that’s entirely possibly, but what the services aren’t saying is that the majority of their selections were favorites of -200 or more, turning that 65-percent handicapping into a losing proposition.
If somebody were to ask you if you would rather be a 60-percent handicapper or a 55-percent handicapper, which would you choose? The obvious answer is that it’s better to be a 60-percent handicapper, but that isn’t necessarily true.
For the bettors that do their own handicapping, however, units won is really the only thing you should be concerned with, as that ultimately is going to translate into the bottom line. Making it more difficult for sports bettors is that some sports services will claim to have won 200 units in a particular sport, but don’t mention that they release 10- or 20-unit plays, along with several 100-unit “locks” at the end of the year if things aren’t going so well and they need something to base next year’s advertising on.
The 55-percent handicapper is using what is commonly referred to as the Wal-Mart Approach, which is to have a lot of volume with the expectation of grinding out a small profit. At the end of the month, the 55-percent handicapper would have gone 83-67 for a gain of 9.3 units, while the 60-percent handicapper would have gone 18-12 for a profit of 4.8 units, so the 55-percent handicapper has made nearly twice as much.. A winning percentage of 55-percent sure doesn’t sound as sexy as a 60-percent handicapper, but if your volume of plays is high enough, it can certainly be much more profitable.
The only statistic that sports bettors should be concerned with is units won, which is the amount of profit, or loss, they have over time, and not worry nearly as much about winning percentage
Once the opening line is released by LVSC, the individual sportsbooks decide if they want to make any adjustments before offering it to the public. That is not the case at all – their intent is NOT to evenly split the ATS result between the teams; rather, their goal is to attract equal betting action on both sides. By moving the line, sportsbooks can influence how the public bets on a particular game. The power ratings are adjusted after each game a team plays. In doing so they attempt to make more attractive the team that is getting less action. People think it’s much more complicated, but it’s not.”
“The main objective is that our clients get equal action on both sides,” Seba said. By necessity their approach is very research-oriented and concise, since with millions of dollars at risk there is little margin for error.
Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) is the world’s premier oddsmaking company and the most respected authority on making the lines. Mike Seba is a Senior Oddsmaker at LVSC and has been making lines for the last six years. Examples of non-game factors that would require an adjustment to a team’s power rating are key player injuries and player trades. Obviously, if the line comes out a week ahead of the event (which is the case in football), there is much that could happen during the week leading up to the event that could affect the line. In our extended interview, Seba explained that there are 4-5 oddsmakers assigned to make lines for each of the major sports (pro & college football and basketball; MLB, NHL, boxing, golf). We do this by drawing from past experiences and applying them to current situations. Each of these oddsmakers bring unique opinions, strengths and weaknesses to the process. Of the 4-5 oddsmakers, generally the 2 most respected opinions are weighed more heavily by the Odds Director before he decides on the final line.
Oddsmakers at LVSC are professional sports junkies who love what they do and would probably do it for nothing if you asked them, but they do get paid for it.
Oddsmakers can also change the line depending on various event-related factors such as player injuries or weather. Stated another way, they want to create a line that half the people find appealing to bet one way while the other half find it appealing to bet the other way (known as ‘dividing the action’). Seba explained that it all starts with each oddsmaker creating a line on each game based upon their own personal approach.
Experts working for the individual books having a strong opinion on the game
The last step in the line-making process for each oddsmaker is taking one final look to determine whether or not the line “feels right.” This is where common sense and past experience with how games are bet enters into the picture. If we’ve done that, we’ve done our job.”
Moving the line is the oddsmaker’s effort to balance betting action, and often times such moves can have a major impact on a bettor’s decision. For example, the public might have heavy betting interest week after week on a popular college football team such as USC.
There is a common misconception that point spreads represent the oddsmakers’ prediction of how many points the favorite will win by. Also, adjustments are made after reading each team’s local newspapers to get a sense of what the coaches & players are thinking going into the game. Oddsmakers have to determine if any changes are necessary and send out an “adjusted line.”
Why the Line Changes
What Is the Line Trying to Accomplish?
For example, if the pointspread on a game is 7 and most of the money is coming in on the underdog (taking the +7), sportsbooks will then move the number down to 6 ½ to try and attract money on the favorite. Reasons for such adjustments include:
Once a game’s power rating based pointspread is determined, the oddsmaker will make adjustments to that line after considering each team’s most recent games played and previous games played against that opponent.
The purpose of these adjustments, like all line adjustments, is to more equally divide the betting action. “The #1 thing for us is to make a line for each game that creates good two-way action. If an oddsmaker comes up with a preliminary line of USC -7, then an adjustment up to -7.5 or -8 would be made in response to the public’s expected USC bias.
A round-table discussion among the 4-5 oddsmakers involved in making the line for each sport is then conducted and a consensus line is decided upon by the Odds Director before it is released to the sportsbooks. Of course there is an entire method to the madness on how the opening line is created.
Since the oddsmaker’s ultimate goal is equally dividing the betting action, public perception and betting patterns must be taken into account.
Once betting begins, sportsbooks can adjust the line at any time.
“You either have a passion for it or you don’t,” Seba said.
Divided action means the sportsbook is guaranteed a profit on the game because of the fee charged to the bettor (called juice or vig – typically $11 bet to win $10).
Power ratings are the oddsmaker’s value of each team and are used as a guide to calculate a “preliminary” pointspread on an upcoming game. “We’re not trying to pick the team that covers the spread, we’re trying to make it a coin flip, a tough decision (for the bettor). This usually includes having up-to-date power ratings on each team.
Individual books having players who consistently bet with certain tendencies (such as an extreme bias toward favorites or toward a certain popular team like USC)
The opening line is the first line created by the oddsmakers, which is then sent out to sportsbooks
Apart from this, he also works as a consultant on gaming management, strategies, personnel and marketing. In sports betting odds, such as football odds is becoming more vibrant each year. The sports betting odds makers set the money line, as more money must be risked for the favorite or the person expected to win and very less on the underdog or the person more likely to lose, so that there occurs a balance between both sides of the contest.
Sports betting odds can be defined as “the likelihood of an outcome occurring that is stated in a number form”. In sports betting odds, the odds are termed as “MONEYLINE”.The sports betting odds there are no point spread for many of the sports such as boxing, tennis etc as there occur no way to measure the points or score in which the player wins or loses by. The bookies set a lot of numbers by keeping the public in mind and the person who begins to study can understand easily as to how the person can gain more and on the numbers set by the bookies.
. In sports betting odds, there are many things, which are illegal such as transmitting information on gambling across the state for placing, or taking bets is considered illegal. The main basis of the wager is the straight up outcome, which is not in to a point spread. This field is considered as a way to make huge profits if the person is a smart bettor who has practiced proper money management. Money line in sports betting odds is decided by the event winner with no regard to the point spread as there is occurs no point spread. In such sports like boxing, the only thing that counts is who wins and who loses, and in such cases, the money line wagering enters in!
In college, also sports betting odds have taken reign even though it might be considered illegal by many. And most of the illegal books of Nevada draw their odds from casinos. In sports betting odds, the odds are made not by the common people. But even then, there occur many loopholes through which people play their own gaming!
In sports betting line, money line is like point spread that is used to equal the attractiveness of the favorite and the underdog for the person betting. It is an entirely different case in sports betting odds, as about 75% of odds are established for the licensed Sports Books in Nevada as well as for Oregon State Lottery by Las Vegas Sports Consultant Inc, which is run by Michael ‘Roxy” Roxborough
Remember, that your horse only has to come in the first three in a six or nine horse race for you to come away with a profit. For this reason, I do not always place my money on the horse that is predicted to win. You really need odds of at least 4/1 to win anything if the horse that you bet on places second or third. However, let us say that the race has just six runners, then you have a 1 in 6 chance of winning. Of course, if you placed a win bet and the horse does win, then you will come away with lots of money. The reason being that the odds are often better than the favorite winning the race. Therefore, it is statistically speaking, a bad race to bet on.
In my opinion, the secret of winning on the horses is to look at the statistics. Thus, place your bet around 20 minutes to race time.
As a general rule, the favorite will win about 1/3 of the time, but what is amazing is how often the favorite will place, especially when less than half of the field is 5-1 or lower. Thus, I suggest that you limit yourself to horse races with either 6 or 9 horses running to have the best chance of winning.
Why does the horse predicted to place actually wins so many races? Maybe because the favorite usually only wins 1 in 3 races. Of course, this is providing that you placed a place or show bet. Thus, you can see that the fewer the runners there are, the better your chances of winning. However, bookmakers/tracks usually only offer poor odds if you bet place or show on such a horse. Often the odds on the horse most likely to win is poor. The key point: is stay away from horse races where there are lots of runners!
Thus, the question asked is if you should bet on the horse most likely to win? Sometimes the answer to this is “no”. I suggest that you choose horse races with nine runners and 1/4 odds on the first three, or six runners with 1/4 odds on the first two. Remember, when you use this system, you are making your predictions on the odds. And do not forget, the horse still has a chance of winning too. In a race with 20 runners you have a 1 in 20 chance of picking the winner. . If the horses just below the favorite have better odds, such as 4/1, 5/1 or better; then place your bet on those horses. In 2 out of 3 races some other horse wins.
As one can see, it often is better to bet on a horse you think is going to place. If the odds are less than 4/1, then I suggest passing such a horse race. Look at the odds being offered and if they are better on the second or third horse, then go for it.
In order to win a horse race, you might want to predict the winner by using statistical calculations instead. In this case a favorite will place almost 100% of the time.
In a race with only six horses running, you have a 1 in 6 chance of picking a winner
