m88 And as you noticed, both good and bad things are going on right now. Similarly, Tom Cruise is also planning to leave Arsenal FC. One of the latest surveys carried out along the fans shows that they are losing their faith to their favorite Arsenal Football Club. Rafas transfer will definitely affect the performance of the team. And the reason behind this can be concluded as the management has put him in reserve players.

According to Arjen, Rafa is the best midfield player of the Premier League, and that could be a big trouble for Arsenal FC. . And as a motivation, Andrei Arshavin, Russian midfielder has won the Best Russian Player prize in August.

Real Madrid top soccer’s rich list as Man Utd drop out of top three

m88 “The high-profile signing of David Beckham in the second half of the 2012/13 season only served to enhance the club’s worldwide profile.

“Importantly, commercial success off the pitch is translating into improved on-pitch performance for the club, including winning their first French title in 19 years.”

Elsewhere, Manchester City — owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan from Abu Dhabi — have overhauled fellow English clubs Arsenal and Chelsea to be ranked sixth in the list, while Liverpool dropped out of the top ten for the first time since 1999/2000.

Liverpool are five-time European champions but haven’t qualified for the continent’s most lucrative club competition since 2009. Story highlightsSpanish giants Real Madrid sit top of soccer’s rich list for a record ninth consecutive yearEnglish champions Manchester United slip out of top three for the first time in 17 yearsGerman and European champs Bayern Munich move third in Deloitte’s tableBarcelona are second while French champions PSG move into the top five for first timeNot only are Manchester United’s fortunes sliding on the pitch, their fortune could also be dwindling off it.

Despite seeing a rise in revenue to $574 million, for the first time in 17 years they can no longer count themselves among the top three richest football clubs in the world. We expect to see them become a mainstay in the top five in years to come, backed by their ambitious Qatari owners and strong commercial support,” Houlihan added. The Bavarians won five trophies in 2013, adding the UEFA Supercup and the FIFA Club World Cup to their two domestic trophies, and their Champions League triumph in 12 years.

Helped by a record Bundesliga broadcast deal, Bayern recorded a 17% growth in revenue to hit $585 million.

The highest climbers in the list are French champions Paris Saint-Germain, who nudged their way into the top five after almost quadrupling their revenue since the 20120/11 season.

They also recorded the highest ever single revenue source with a commercial revenue of $345 million.

“Both Spanish clubs enjoy substantial revenue from individually negotiated broadcast deals, which is key in contributing to their overall revenue advantage over their European peers.”

Bayern’s place in the top three reflects their all-conquering performance on the pitch. PSG, with Sweden star Zlatan Ibrahimovic in their ranks, were taken over by the Qatari Investment Authority in 2011.

“PSG are the country’s sole representative in this year’s top 20. Despite that, they saw revenue grow by 9% and might shoot up the list next season thanks to a record TV deal for English clubs.

Turkish clubs Galatasaray and Fenerbahce force their way into the rich list, making it the first time since 2005/06 that two clubs outside the recognized big five league in Europe — Spain, Italy, Germany, England and France — have appeared in the top 20.

.

For an organization that once spent eight years on top of the annual money table — compiled by business advisory firm Deloitte — it represents a financial blow for one of soccer’s most decorated clubs.

Spanish giants Real Madrid came top for a record ninth consecutive year — despite winning no silverware last season — with a total revenue of $702 million, $47 million ahead of domestic rivals Barcelona in second.

Read: Man Utd slump to cup defeat

Combined revenue for the top 20 clubs — of all whom play in Europe — was up 8% to $7.3 billion.

German champions Bayern Munich, who also won the European Champions League, have usurped Manchester United, who have also seen their share price plummet since long-standing manager Alex Ferguson left at the end of last season.

The Scot delivered an unprecedented 13 English Premier League titles and two European Champions League crowns during his near 27-year reign, but under new manager David Moyes the team has struggled.

They currently sit seventh in the table, 14 points behind leaders Arsenal, and were knocked out of the FA Cup — England’s premier cup competition — by Swansea and the League Cup by Sunderland.

They have qualified for the knockout phase of the Champions League though, facing Greek side Olympiakos in the last 16.

Their performances have seen confidence on the stock market evaporate, the club’s share price having fallen 16% since Moyes took over, wiping an estimated $500 million off their value.

But with a raft of commercial deals having been secured in recent seasons — the club even having official partners in the noodle and paint sectors — Deloitte’s Austin Houlihan says the club can bounce back next year.

“Whilst Manchester United drop one place in the Money League, a number of the club’s recent commercial deals will boost revenue in 2013/14, so this fall to fourth place may only be temporary,” he said.

“These deals, combined with the impact of the improved three year Premier League broadcast deals from 2013/14, mean they are likely to get close to the 500 million ($677 million) revenue mark in next year’s Money League.

“Beyond 2013/14, consistent qualification for the Champions League is key in United challenging to regain top spot in the Money League, a position it last held in 2003/04.”

In contrast to Manchester United, the financial juggernaut that is Real Madrid shows no signs of slowing.

They have consistently been beaten to the Spanish league title by Barcelona in recent years and are without a Champions League triumph for over a decade, but Real have topped the rich list for a record ninth consecutive year.

Their revenue was up $8.5 million on last year, underpinned by a 4% rise in commercial revenue to $286.7 million, and 3% in broadcast revenue to $255.1 million.

Dan Jones from Deloitte said: “Despite tough economic conditions, particularly within Spain, the club’s ability to generate substantial commercial revenue both domestically and internationally is central to their success.

“This helped widen the gap to their nearest rivals in the Money League, FC Barcelona, to $48.7 million

Manchester United could have bought Luis Suarez or Neymar for the £58m splashed on Anthony Martial, says Monaco president 

m88 It’s the price of Luis Suarez or Neymar the best players in the world.

‘On Sunday the player got such an offer that he couldn’t have declined. He asked us to find a solution and on Monday morning Manchester United made an offer to Monaco which the club couldn’t refuse.

Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev believes Manchester United could have signed Luis Suarez or Neymar for the fee they paid for Anthony Martial.

Louis van Gaal splashed out 36million on the 19-year-old forward but the figure could rise as high as 58m if Martial achieves a number of criteria included in the deal.

‘It’s true that the price for Martial is 58m but take into account this sum includes bonuses which are very realistic,’ Vasilyev said to The Sun.

Losing Pedro unthinkable for Iniesta

m88 “We have already spoken about Pedro a lot and there will be a solution shortly because the market will close.”

“As of today we are not thinking that we could lose him,” Iniesta said ahead of the match in the Georgian capital Tbilisi.

Tbilisi (AFP) – Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta doesn’t want to consider the possibility that Spanish international teammate Pedro Rodriguez could be entering his final days as a Barca player.

Whether the World Cup and European Championship winner stays or goes, with Barca unable to register any new players until January, Barca boss Luis Enrique is just keen for the window to close.

“If he stays we will be delighted and if he leaves we have to respect that decision.”

“It is a decision for him and what his heart feels,” added the Brazilian.

Barca will also be without left-back Jordi Alba through injury as they look to stay on course to match the historic achievement of Pep Guardiola’s Barca side in 2009 by winning six trophies in a calendar year.

“Like any coach I would like to have all my players for the whole season,” he said.

“He continues to be our teammate and he is here to win the first title (of the season). Hopefully, as a teammate and a player he can continue with us because he is a world class player.”

Yet, the 28-year-old looks set to start as Barca attempt to add the UEFA Super Cup to their trophy haul of Champions League, La Liga and Copa del Rey from last season against Sevilla on Tuesday after Neymar was ruled out for two weeks after contracting the mumps.

Dani Alves turned down the chance to make the move from Barcelona to Old Trafford earlier in the summer after signing a new two-year deal with the European champions and said he would understand if Pedro was tempted by a lucrative offer from the free-spending Premier League side.

Sevilla have even more severe injury problems, though, as new signing Steven NZonzi, Daniel Carrico and Dani Pareja are out, whilst centre-backs Adil Rami and Timothee Kolodziejczak are doubts due to a bout of gastroenteritis.

Pedro has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United before the transfer window closes at the end of the month after seeing his first-team opportunities squeezed by the arrivals of Neymar and Luis Suarez in the past two summers.

Liverpool FC, Great Players, Great Goals

fun88 In his first match Keegan scored after just 12 minutes, and Liverpool beat Nottingham Forest 3-1. He went on to score 100 goals for Liverpool in all.

He said farewell by helping Liverpool win their first European Cup with a 3-1 conquest of Borussia Moenchengladbach in Rome before joining Hamburg in 1977.

Some Facts About Liverpool

Liverpool has the record of winning the maximum number (18) of league titles in English football. His partnership with Toshack prospered and Keegan soon became the hero of Anfield.

Between 1978 and 1981, Liverpool created the record of remaining unbeaten for 85 matches at home in all competitions.

Robbie Fowler has the record of scoring the fastest Premier League hat trick when he scored three goals in 4 minutes and 33 seconds against Arsenal in 1995.. With 24 goals in his first season

Kevin Keegan

Kevin Keegan began his professional career with Scunthorpe United and was signed by Liverpool manager, Bill Shankly in May 1971.

Liverpool is one of four teams who have won the league three times in a row, they achieved this feat from 1983-1985. They have also won two second division titles, seven FA Cups, seven League Cups which is also a record and 15 community shield titles.

Fernando Torres has the record of the scoring the most number of goals by a foreigner in his debut season.

Ian Rush has the record of scoring the most number (5) of goals in FA Cup finals. In the 1893-1894 season, they won the second division league title without losing a match making them the first and the only club to do so.

He was signed as a midfielder to replace Ian Callaghan but his sparkling display up front in a pre-season match persuaded Shankly to plunge him into his debut alongside John Toshack in attack at the start of the 1971-72 season

Manchester United: Dani Carvajal believes David de Gea does not know if he will join Real Madrid

12bet We have much to talk about and discuss,” Perez said to Cadena Ser.. But he has to face reality, to know who owns him and when coming to the national team to help as much as possible,” he said. Questioned by Cope whether de Gea will join Real Madrid next summer once his contract at United expires, he said: “I have no idea. He has lived a few days that have been a little strange. He wanted to play in our team (Real Madrid) and in the end it was not possible. I just can say what we did and what we tried. Today this is not the issue. Carvajal admitted that his compatriot is affected because he wanted to play for the La Liga giants but hopes he will overcome the disappointment soon.

The future of the 24-year-old goalkeeper at Old Trafford remains uncertain as his current contract is due to expire at the end of the campaign – meaning he is still able to make his move to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer as a free-agent. It looked something done but collapsed. He doesn’t know. But he’s a strong boy and he will be recovered soon.”

Real Madrid star Dani Carvajal has claimed that even David de Gea “doesn’t know” whether he will join Los Blancos in the near future after his move from Manchester United to the Santiago Bernabeu collapsed on Spanish transfer deadline day. “From now on, I have no idea what will happen. “He is not low morale but a little bit affected. He is the victim and cannot do anything else.

Carvajal, who has been with de Gea during the international break, has now added fuel to the speculations after claiming that even the United keeper doesn’t know where his future lies.

Manchester United: Dani Carvajal believes David de Gea does not know if he will join Real Madrid

“I have a good relationship with him. I think he even doesn’t know what he will do. This is an issue that has just happened and we still can’t talk about it yet. But Spanish newspaper AS reported last week that he may eventually renew his deal at United because he believes Louis van Gall will keep him in exile this season unless he agrees a new contract.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez last week refused to confirm whether the club would make another move for the keeper in January, although he admitted that some time ago they reached agreement with de Gea for him to join the club at the end of his contract in the summer of 2016

How To Master Sports Betting

It is only going to place you in a difficult position and as much as you might think it won’t be, your decision making ability is going to be compromised. Travel is a factor such as when East Coast sides travel to the West Coast and vice versa. It doesn’t matter if it is pretty or not.

Information and doing your homework is important, but you don’t want to full into the trap of information overload. What is the point of drowning yourself in statistics and research for what you could just as easily decided with a flip of the coin? So you need to sift through it all and just take the morsels here and there which are really important and make a difference. The weather conditions also make a difference as they do in horse racing. You don’t want to lose money just because you weren’t on top of your game.

The most important thing is that you need to take emotion out of the equation. It could provide great insight as to predicting what will occur.

Look for value bets. Speaking of the long run, this is what you should be focused on. Business is business and you need to be concentrating on who is going to win regardless of who likes and who doesn’t like which team.. You can’t let the highs and lows affect you too much.

Because of this point, it is probably better if you steer clear from any matches involving the teams that you like. Hopefully this kind of thinking will keep you grounded. If you are going to do it you need to do it properly and master it, it means you are completely organized and focused. Upsets are always going to happen but see when it makes the most sense when to go for that and when not to. This means that when you place your bets you need to be thinking clearly and concisely. It’s all about accumulating winnings. Anything less than this and it is going to be a disaster. For instance, if you are pretty certain that a side is going to win and they are getting good odds for this than take this. You shouldn’t favor a team because they are the team your best friend supports. You will be better off for doing so in the long run.

In the case of team sports, injuries are important. You want to know who trained and who didn’t. So do yourself a favor and swear off them. So if you suffer a bad break along the way, just remember it goes with the territory. Also look into how sides perform the week after doing certain travel. Thus when you are doing well, you will still be focused and when you aren’t doing so well you won’t be thinking that it’s the end of the world. On the flip side, you shouldn’t bet against a team because someone you don’t like roots for that team. Over time, you will learn what it should be that you should be paying attention to.

Column: FIFA presidency no laughing matter as would-be candidate becomes frontman for gambling

In the UK, which liberalized gambling advertising in 2007, adults’ exposure to gambling commercials on television soared five-fold in eight years to 2012, regulator Ofcom found. So silky as a player for Newcastle and Tottenham; so ridiculous now with his car-crash campaign for the FIFA presidency.

___

But that’s not the point here. Tuning in for results of football betting pools, which offered big jackpots for small stakes, was a Saturday afternoon ritual for many 20th Century English families.

“It just makes like a mockery of football.”

PARIS –  Don’t laugh. But the mere thought of the gambling industry even attempting to place a stooge at the very top of football makes the prospect of another Blatter term seem perhaps not quite so bad.

Sports and gambling have, of course, long gone together, feeding off each other’s success and growth. It reads like a plug for Fifty Shades of Grey.

Twaddle takes a very dim view of Ginola’s Paddy Power-backed grab for FIFA.

One of those is Kevin Twaddle, a former player for Motherwell and other Scottish clubs who told his story in the biography, “Life On The Line: How to Lose a Million and So Much More.” He no longer gambles and has delivered talks to other players about the risks..

We’re talking here about David Ginola. Bet some more.

“It’s eyeballs we’re after,” 12Bet executive Rory Anderson, quoted in the Daily Mail, said when the online bookmaker became the name on Hull City’s shirt for this Premier League season.

But the targets were our wallets and spending habits, not our hearts. Villa’s shirt sponsor is dafabet, a name that works better in Chinese, where “dafa” means “big wealth.” Stoke and Burnley players are billboards for Bet365 and Fun88 (another name that plays on the Chinese word to get rich).

Imagine, for a moment, a Paddy Power-financed FIFA president. But I mean you’re talking about one of the biggest, powerfulest jobs in football and all you’re getting to hear about is Paddy Power.”

Whoa. 10 will pit two Asian online bookmakers against each other. The increase was three-fold for children aged 4-15.

Bet. That much was clear from the Paddy Power branding.

John Leicester is an international sports columnist for The Associated Press. Bet again. “It’s great for Paddy Power. It won’t happen; FIFA’s ethics rules should see to that. In pocketing 250,000 pounds (335,000 euros; US$375,000) from bookmaker Paddy Power for this stunt, Ginola became the latest Trojan horse in the gambling and gaming industry’s creeping and creepy embrace of football.

Asking your kids to make tea during half-time breaks won’t shield them from the bombardment, not with gambling ads flashing throughout matches on pitch-side light-boards. There’s nothing funny about the gambling industry’s latest wheeze to sink its teeth even deeper into football and its fans.

But gambling advertising wasn’t as in-your-face as now. FIFA’s election and ethics rules will almost certainly keep him off the May ballot. Write to him at jleicester@ap.org or follow him at http://twitter.com/johnleicester

And that isn’t funny at all.

Ginola has zero chance of unseating Sepp Blatter. That was before online bookmakers offered odds on anything and everything, from match results and goals scored to which team will win the coin toss or take the first corner, and before their relentless advertising.

Sport “matters more when there’s money on it,” it says. What ever happened to sport for sport’s sake, for the buzz of competition, not a bet? How quaint. “There’s more passion, more pleasure and more pain.”

That is the message that football, more than most other sports, is mainlining into our homes, helped by names like Ginola and teams lending their cachet, stadiums, jerseys and players to the industry that had cash to splash when the 2008 financial crisis hobbled other sponsors.

And how about this blurb from Sky Bet, title sponsor since 2013 of England’s three divisions below the Premier League. This was about making a splash. Hull against Aston Villa on Feb. After Thursday’s passing of the entry deadline, “Team Ginola” should fade away.

“I’m here today to talk about love” were the Frenchman’s seductive opening words at his campaign launch in London this month.

All this in a sport grappling with the increasing danger of gambling-related match-fixing and with ample examples of gambling-addicted players who frittered away their wealth.

“It’s an absolute disgrace,” he said in a phone interview

Legalize sports gambling, NBA commissioner says

He says new regulations would help prevent underage betting while educating those with a gambling problem about how to bet responsibly.

Silver says new laws would have to protect the integrity of the sports.

Sports leagues have long opposed gambling on games, claiming it creates incentives for game-fixing. It is currently only legal in Nevada; New Jersey is moving toward legalization — against the opposition of all four major pro sports leagues.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says it’s time for a new approach to betting on sports.

.

In an op-ed article for The New York Times published online on Thursday, Silver says fans should have a safe and legal way to gamble on professional games. He suggests a federal framework that allows states to legalize sports betting

10 Tips for Betting on Football

There is a wealth of information on the Internet; it is just up to you to find it and research it daily.”

So, how much are we gambling each football season?

2. Oakland comes to mind) seem like the Super Bowl.

“A sharp or smart has a plan of what he wants to do,” says Vaccaro, the director of sports operations and public relations at Lucky’s Race and Sports Book in Las Vegas.

Another difference between squares and sharps is how they approach betting on game day.

“A square or recreational player might have a vague plan, but after two Corona’s he will definitely run to the window and make a hasty decision on the USC-Notre Dame game because he wants to be involved in the party atmosphere,” Vaccaro says.

“The biggest mistake that amateur bettors make is they increase their bets when they are losing,” Sevransky says.

And remember, in the immortal words of “Fast” Eddie Felson, “Money won is twice as sweet as money earned.”

Also, it’s probably a good idea to disregard advice from the myriad of ex-players and football experts you see on television each week. And why not? We have unconditional love for the sport and betting $50 or $100 on a game adds an extra rush of adrenaline. He is not taken in by being involved in USC-Notre Dame just because it is the biggest watched game of the day. If you want advice about sports betting, find someone who has a successful track record. “In the NFL, a game will often be totally turned around by one or two plays, or even a single penalty.

Ted Sevransky, a well-known Las Vegas gambler and sports consultant with Sportsmemo.com, agrees.

So, how much should you bet a game?

“The bookies fear and despise a tiny coterie of professional bettors known as ‘the sharps,’” Konik says. The only locks that exist are those that need keys to open them.”

Moseman agrees and especially likes home underdogs.

8. “Because alcohol clouds your judgment and usually helps you to make rash decisions you usually wouldn’t otherwise make. Otherwise, you’re better off doing your own research.”

But even though the math says it’s virtually impossible to win on a consistent basis, Americans continue to bet on football. “Thus, the bookies love and cherish the squares.”

9. Consider Underdogs – “In the long-run, it’s easier to win betting on the underdog,” Konik says. “Most people prefer to bet on the ‘better’ team, the one that will probably win the game. Big underdogs often find ways to cover the spread and they rarely give up toward the end of a game in front of the home crowd.”

“The talking heads on TV know nothing about sports betting,” says Sevransky.

So, is it possible for the average square to become a little sharper in making football bets this season? According to professionals like Vacarro, Konik and Gordon, amateur bettors have the best chance to win if they demonstrate a little patience and follow the 10 basic tips below. He loses year after year, according to Dan Gordon, a top football handicapper and author of How to Beat the Sports Books (Cardoza Publishing 2005). Research Football Services – “Most sports services realize that most people who sign up with them are insecure,” Gordon warns. The payout is just the same as far as he is concerned. Also, being “in action” can make a dull late-afternoon game (Buffalo vs. Shop For Numbers – “Another important aspect of betting on football is shopping for the best number,” Moseman explains. They use powerful computers that can process millions of bits of data and produce a more accurate point-spread line than the bookmakers.”

4.

5.

3. “Teams play inspired ball at home. If you are going to go with a favorite, it is best to place your bet early in the week when the sharps are laying heavy money on the points. If North Texas is his best bet on a Saturday then that is his bet. So underdogs tend to be slightly undervalued – except by the sharps.”

“The standard bet requires gamblers to lay $11 for every $10 they want to win with the extra $1 or 10 percent known as the juice,” Konik says. “In trying to bamboozle potential customers, many services make claims about having scouts all over the country that give them inside information and promise 70 or even 80 percent winners, as if the bookmakers were the biggest suckers in the world. The NFL, for example, will have very similar numbers at most of the betting shops you visit. Slim underdogs regularly win outright. “Over the course of several seasons, the percentage of bettors who turn a profit is minuscule.”

Newspapers and popular sports sites routinely publish the lines or point spreads for games, and football insiders offer their picks to viewers each week on ESPN and other cable networks. “If you become an expert on a smaller conference like the WAC, you have a good chance to beat the house because sports book operators do not have the time or resources to follow this conference the way you can. Money Management – “This is without a doubt the most important aspect of betting on sports and possibly the most neglected,” says Morey “Doc” Moseman, a professional gambler and sports consultant with DocSports.com for nearly 40 years.

And where does all that money go?

While these tips don’t guarantee you’re going to win, hopefully they can make you a little less square and a little more sharp in your picks this season.

But that doesn’t mean you have to bet like a “square” and throw away your hard-earned money.

“There is probably no better bet in sports than playing an underdog at home,” Moseman says. If you like an underdog, it is best to get your bet in as late as possible, where there is heavy action from squares on favorites. Avoid Chasing Bets – “Don’t do it! There is no worse way to mismanage your bankroll than to chase your bets after a losing day,” cautions Moseman on the dangerous practice of trying to immediately win back your losses. “The sharps are usually members of a betting syndicate privy to the most up-to-date information on injuries, weather, game plans, and, most important, the real power of the teams involved. Avoid Exotic Bets – “For very skilled handicappers, with a proven track record, there can, at least in theory, be value in betting parlays,” says Gordon on the type of bet that combines two or more individual wagers. Drinking and Gambling Don’t Mix – “There is a reason the casinos in Las Vegas supply you with free drinks while you are gambling,” Moseman says. Giving 11 to 10 odds is almost always the cheapest price you can give.”

Michael Konik, a sports writer and best-selling author of The Smart Money (Simon & Schuster 2006), explains why it is so hard for the recreational gambler to win at betting on football. Locks Don’t Exist – “Anyone who has watched sports for about a month realizes that the difference between winning and losing, especially against the spread, can be infinitesimally small,” Gordon says. “He is not jaded by teams and does not bet with his heart.

7. On college you will be able to find different lines at different sports books. Not all games work according to this formula, but it is usually a good rule of thumb.”

“In an average season, fewer than one bettor in twelve turns a profit,” Gordon says. These books change their numbers according to the betting patterns of their customers, so it is not entirely uncommon to find two or three point differences in the lines.”

“A square is the average, unsophisticated gambler whose decision making is based on hunches, media manipulation, or spurious systems that cannot overcome the bookmaker’s inherent mathematical advantage,” Konik explains. Chasing losses is the fastest way to the poor house.”

1. Thanks to the juice, the only one who profits in this scenario is the bookmaker. “As for me, the best bet in football is betting the point spread or over/under totals on individual games. “The key to proper money management is to be sure not to bet more than you can afford to lose.”

However, Konik adds that there are some bettors who actually know how to beat the bookies.

“Most people with an understanding of football gambling bet between 3 percent and 5 percent of their bankroll, increasing when they win and reducing when they lose,” Vaccaro says. Focus on Conferences – “The best way to win money betting football is to develop a niche and follow it closely,” Moseman advises. “There will be more discrepancy in the numbers at different sports books. “If you listen to their advice, you are sure to lose. There are almost an infinite number of scenarios that can happen in a single football game. “Squares usually bet later in the week and they tend to pick the favorites. The only touts bettors should consider are the ones who talk about the long haul and realistic winning percentages, which are in the upper 50 percent to lower 60 percent range.”

Betting on football games; whether it’s through a local bookie, an offshore Internet site or a Nevada casino (still the only legal place in America to make football bets), most of us have done it or know of someone who has.

. “When you’re in a good rhythm and winning, you want to increase your bets.

10. To be a successful sports bettor you need to operate with a clear mind.”

Even Hollywood is not immune – think Two for the Money with Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey.

Certainly not back into the pockets of the average bettor. In fact, sports bettors must pick 52.4 percent winners just to break even.”

6. But, when you’re struggling, that’s when you want to reduce your bet size until you get out of your slump. “For example, if you have a $1,000 bankroll for the season, you should generally bet no more than $50 a game.”

Although exact figures are impossible to calculate, according to Jimmy Vaccaro, widely considered to be Las Vegas’ most influential bookmaker, Americans probably wager more than $50 billion a year on NFL and college football combined. Bet at the Right Time – “The sharp bettors tend to bet underdogs, and they tend to bet them early,” Moseman says. “Common wisdom says that over the course of a long football season the average man or woman will pick approximately 50 percent winners

Sports Betting: How to Bet Parlays

In parlays involving point spreads, the payoff are fixed, while money line parlay payoffs are determined by the odds of each team.

Point Spread Parlays

The odds on a typical parlay involving point spreads, including totals, are generally something like:. For example, the true odds of winning a three-team parlay when making point spread wagers are 7-1, while the payoff is only 6-1, and it gets worse as you bet more teams. All of your bets must win, or at least tie, in order for you to win.

What this means is that a bettor making a wager on a five-team parlay stands to win $25 for every $1 if all of their games win, while a correct eight-parlay will payout $150 for every $1 wagered. The odds of the payoff are much less than the true odds. The payoffs a bettor will receive should they win are quite different in the two. Should the Cubs also win, the bettor has turned a $10 wager into $46. The ability to win a lot of money for a small bet is the primary reason parlays are popular with a number of sports bettors.

Money Line Parlays

Money line parlays do not use fixed odds, because the odds of winning vary greatly from team to team. Contrast the $36 profit with the $26 profit a bettor winning a $10 point spread parlay on two teams would make. If you place a four team parlay, going 3-1 is no different than going 0-4. Updated

March 21, 2016.

For example, say a bettor likes the Los Angeles Dodgers +160 and the Chicago Cubs -130. The difference in the payoff is because the Dodgers were not given very good odds of winning.

Are Parlays Good Bets?

The simple answer is no, especially parlays involving point spreads or totals. Simply stated, a parlay is a collection of two or more sides or totals that you bet on and all of them must win in order for you to win your bet. While a parlay made against the point spread assumes a 50-50 chance for each team of winning, money line parlays do not. The true odds of hitting a 10-team point parlay are 1,023-1, while the payoff is generally around 600-1, so a parlay bettor is at a big disadvantage.

By Allen Moody

To read more about parlays, see Parlay Cards, Finding Correlated Parlays or Betting Baseball Parlays.

To put it in simple terms, money line parlays take the amount of your bet and place all of the money on one team and if that team wins, recalculates your bet amount on the next team, again placing your entire wager on that team.

Sports Betting – How to Bet Parlays

Parlays are by far the most popular of the exotic wagers, as they offer the potential for a big payout from a small wager. If the bettor places a $10 wager, they essentially would have a $10 bet on the Dodgers +160, which will return $26 should the Dodgers win, and then would have $26 on the Cubs -130. The chances of the a good baseball team with its ace pitcher on the mound defeating a mediocre opponent are going to be greater than 50 percent and the payout if the parlay hits will reflect this.

2 teams 13-5

3 teams 6-1

4 teams 10-1

5 teams 25-1

6 teams 40-1

7 teams 75-1

8 teams 150-1

9 teams 300-1

10 teams 600-1

Bettors should stick with straight bets when betting against the point spread or totals as it’s difficult enough to pick one winner, let alone two or more games and the odds you are asked to try and beat are nearly impossible to overcome in the long run.

How the Sports Betting Line is Made by RJ Bell

.

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.

Once betting begins, sportsbooks can adjust the line at any time. 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.

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. 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. By moving the line, sportsbooks can influence how the public bets on a particular game. If we’ve done that, we’ve done our job.”

There is a common misconception that point spreads represent the oddsmakers’ prediction of how many points the favorite will win by.

Contributed by:

“You either have a passion for it or you don’t,” Seba said. 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).

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. “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). In doing so they attempt to make more attractive the team that is getting less action.

Experts working for the individual books having a strong opinion on the game

What Is the Line Trying to Accomplish?

“The #1 thing for us is to make a line for each game that creates good two-way action. Oddsmakers have to determine if any changes are necessary and send out an “adjusted line.”

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.

How the Opening Line Is Made

“The main objective is that our clients get equal action on both sides,” Seba said. Examples of non-game factors that would require an adjustment to a team’s power rating are key player injuries and player trades.

Oddsmakers can also change the line depending on various event-related factors such as player injuries or weather. For example, the public might have heavy betting interest week after week on a popular college football team such as USC.

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). The power ratings are adjusted after each game a team plays. Seba explained that it all starts with each oddsmaker creating a line on each game based upon their own personal approach.

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. This usually includes having up-to-date power ratings on each team. 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.

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)

Why the Line Changes

The opening line is the first line created by the oddsmakers, which is then sent out to sportsbooks.

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. By necessity their approach is very research-oriented and concise, since with millions of dollars at risk there is little margin for error. 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. Each of these oddsmakers bring unique opinions, strengths and weaknesses to the process. 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. People think it’s much more complicated, but it’s not.”

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. Mike Seba is a Senior Oddsmaker at LVSC and has been making lines for the last six years. Of course there is an entire method to the madness on how the opening line is created. 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. We do this by drawing from past experiences and applying them to current situations.

Since the oddsmaker’s ultimate goal is equally dividing the betting action, public perception and betting patterns must be taken into account.

Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) is the world’s premier oddsmaking company and the most respected authority on making the lines. Reasons for such adjustments include:

The purpose of these adjustments, like all line adjustments, is to more equally divide the betting action. 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’)

Lions’ upset over Saints completes 20,000-to-1 parlay, paying $100K

A progressive pot of $170,782 was split by 17 people.

One of the biggest long shots in betting history will be cashed on Wednesday afternoon when Tayla Polia gets paid $100,005 for her $5, 15-leg NFL parlay that came through this week.. She bet that both teams would score more than 45 points. Polia had the Giants as a five-point underdog.

“On Sunday morning, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the couch talking about how spreads worked,” Polia said. She had the Falcons as a three-point underdog, and the Texans and Redskins as one-point underdogs; they won and covered. Even though she was getting higher odds for picking against the spread, she said she spent time just picking who she thought was going to win the game instead.

Thanks to one of the most improbable betting stories, that might happen sooner rather than later.

“I remembered that I picked the  Giants and they lost,” Polia said. “So I thought it was strange when I looked at it [Tuesday] morning and saw that I won.”

Polia said, upon hearing the news, she fell to the floor of the law firm where she works in disbelief and, minutes later, said she was going out to lunch.

Bogdanovich said the $5 15-team parlay card for $100,000 has hit before. They scored 61.

For William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich, this weekend wasn’t a good one, to say the least. Polia also was required to pick the over or under on that game. The Panthers beat the Giants by three. The Chiefs, as an eight-point favorite, crushed the Ravens by 20.

The against-all-odds story gets better: Polia said this is only the second bet she has placed in her life.

“I somehow drove back home to tell my boyfriend in person,” Polia said. Not only did Polia’s payout come through, but a 15-game parlay where bettors just have to pick the winners also hit. “He was frustrated since I wasn’t getting it right away.”

The Chargers, as a two-point favorite, beat the Dolphins by 16. She cashed in by being on the right side of the point spread in 14 games and correctly picking the over in the  Steelers/ Broncos game.

An hour later, Polia, with $20 in her account, risked $5 on the parlay. They beat the Saints, 35-27.

The closest game she had was the Steelers, who were six-point favorites on the card, beating the Broncos by a touchdown after spotting Denver a 17-point lead. The Patriots and  Seahawks were 14-point favorites and they both won by 17. The Packers won by 10 as a three-point favorite. Her card had the Cardinals and Bengals as four-point favorites, and they won by 23 and 10, respectively.

Polia said she has loved sports her entire life — a Celtics logo tattoo on her hip is a testament to her love of Boston, which she left because she got sick of the winters.

Her dream, she says, is to make Vegas a pit stop on the way to owning a beach house in California.

Polia then called up William Hill and the person on the other line informed her that she was picking against the spread. “Of course, he didn’t believe me.”

The 26-year-old Polia, who had just moved to Las Vegas two months ago, got 20,000-to-1 odds on the parlay card on betting firm William Hill’s mobile site. William Hill paid out a couple times in Delaware, where betting on the cards is permitted.

The final game of the parlay was on Monday night, where she had the Lions as a three-point underdog.

Aside from the Giants as five-point underdogs, Polia’s card had the Vikings as a five-point favorite, and they won by 21

Sports :: How to Win at Betting: Sports Gambling Winning Percentage, What You Need to Know

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. 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.

. 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. 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.

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. 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.

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

With offline gaming, the usual games could last around 20 to 100 game play hours. The thought of outwitting their counterparts is what drives any online gamer to succeed. In addition, such games are fairly simple to finish off, so gamers are not at all pressured to play for more hours.

One reason why online gaming is such a major success is because of the competition being held on a particular game every now and then in which fabulous prizes are at stake. But more than the prize being offered, online gamers are interested on the title for each competition. That is why more and more IT experts are religiously developing new games or simply improving the current prevailing games since there is a huge public clamor for such.

There are a number of popular games for offline gaming as:

- Pencil and paper games

Gambling

The Sims 3

Need for Speed: Shift

The Orange Box

The Elder Scrolls: Morrowind

Starcraft 2

Offline Gaming

- Role-playing games (RPG) – These types of games can be played either in electronic format such as on a computer or video game console, some of them even being online like World of Warcraft, or they can be played as a tabletop game like White Wolf or Shadowrun. Additionally, games for offline gaming are either skill-based or story-based, with the former as the more difficult as it needs your experience and skillfulness in order to play and finish the game.

- Dexterity/coordination games

- Tabletop games

- Video games

- Card games: Poker, Baccarat, Canasta – to name just the most popular and well known

There are many different types of games. By the year 1990, its popularity has hit the highest point, but eventually dropped since the market did not expand quickly as what was expected. While games for offline gaming are still available and loved by some people, the majority already prefers the online games at present.

CNN – ESPN book debates a century of sports

“We don’t have Pele in there. But I voted purely on what I considered to be athletic ability, and if I had anything in the back of my mind it was, ‘If you put these guys on a field and they played each other in 20 sports, who would win the most?’ I think Jim Brown would win the most, and I think Chamberlain would be awfully close.”

’I love the controversy of it’

The ESPN pick that caused the biggest grumble from sports fans was No. So we missed Pele, but we had Secretariat.”

And the debates continue.

’Who would win most?’

So, who did Schaap vote as his greatest athlete ever? Let the debate begin. My complaint was that he only played one sport.

”I also love the controversy of it. “If you have a vote for the most significant athlete, then you have Ali, then you have Babe Ruth, then you have Michael Jordan. Even if I didn’t think he should be up that high, I like the controversy it created.”

But Schaap points out that the list has another source of contention.

”We are limiting it to North Americans,” he says. They changed the face of sports. 14; the top athlete remains a mystery, though the list has been narrowed to a chosen few.

And to compliment the show, the sports network that started in 1979 has released a new book by the same title. 35. The compendium, published by Hyperion, features recollections on the sports century that was by top writers and sportscasters, including Dick Schaap, Joyce Carol Oates, Chris Berman, David Halberstam, Roy Blount Jr., and Thomas Boswell.

The book is divided into decades, with at least one athlete highlighted as the defining athlete of that time period. Couch potatoes and bar patrons tuning in to the latest televised contest inevitably battle it out over who is the greatest boxer, the greatest baseball team, the greatest golfer or the greatest quarterback.

And then there’s the ultimate debate: Who is the greatest athlete of all time?

Trying to compare competitors from different athletic endeavors — Muhammad Ali and Jim Thorpe, Michael Jordan and Babe Ruth, Bo Jackson and, uh, Bo Jackson — proves a nearly impossible task.

”If you have a vote for the most significant athlete, then you have Ali, then you have Babe Ruth, then you have Michael Jordan. They changed the face of sports.”

– sportswriter Dick Schaap

But as any sports fan knows, ESPN has been trying to do just that with its ongoing series, “ESPN SportsCentury.” The network, using the opinions of sports reporters, authors, academics and observers, is counting down its top 100 athletes of all time. Schaap says the former Baltimore Colts quarterback, like many athletes, has become a symbol of the era in which he played.

”I always thought of him as a stoic, solid person, that I think was typical of that era of the 1950s,” says Schaap. The athlete ranked in that spot: Secretariat, the 1973 Triple Crown winner. Fighter Jack Johnson, for instance, represents the 1900s; basketball star Michael Jordan defines the 1990s.

In decades between, readers will find lengthy pieces on Jim Thorpe, Babe Ruth, Joe Louis and Babe Didrikson, Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams, Johnny Unitas, Bill Russell, Muhammad Ali, and Pete Rose.

”I think it’s a labor of love for everybody who was involved with it,” says Schaap, the author of several sports books, the former editor of Sports Magazine and current host of ESPN’s “Sports Reporters.” Schaap, who praised ESPN’s Mark Shapiro for organizing the book, writes about Unitas. It seems some thought the list should only list human athletes.

”I think anybody is entitled to vote for whomever they want, and I think Secretariat does qualify as an athlete,” says Schaap. EDT (1808 GMT)

(CNN) — The sport of watching sports, for those who don’t know much about sports, is really the debate of it all. “(But) I wouldn’t have voted him very high. So far, they’ve reached No.

”My top three were Jim Brown, Wilt Chamberlain and Bo Jackson,” says Schaap. He realizes that his picks might not top the ultimate ESPN list — Jackson is not even offered in the network’s Top 20 — but he thinks he used a different scale to appraise athletes.

”I did not choose necessarily on the basis of significance,” says Schaap
