Belmont Stakes Odds at BSNblogThe Belmont Stakes odds are just a week away and there are some storylines to consider, including jockey Calvin Borel’s push for the Jockey’s Triple Crown. The field isn’t set in stone yet for the big race, but here are a few names to consider.

MINE THAT BIRD

The Kentucky Derby Winner is obviously another big favorite at the Belmont Stakes odds, though his effectiveness could be determined by his jockey, as Borel rode him for his victory but Mike Smith rode him in the Preakness. Some horse race betting fans feel it’s a trap to bet on Mine That Bird because Rachel Alexandra may still run the race; Alexandra held off Mine that Bird to win the Preakness. However, the Preakness was a shorter distance, Mine that Bird was closing at the end, and the Belmont Stakes odds are longer than both of those races, so Mine That Bird should be the fave.

RACHEL ALEXANDRA

If the little filly-that-could runs in the Belmont Stakes odds, Borel will likely be the rider as he goes for a personal Triple Crown. While she makes for one of the better online betting picks, Belmont Stakes betting fans have to be careful, as her Preakness triumph came on a 13/16 track.

CHARITABLE MAN

Not a household name, Charitable Man could sneak up on the field next week. He dominated the Peter Pan at Belmont Park with a 3 3/4 –length score and could sneak up to steal the race the same way Rachel Alexandra did the Preakness.

MINER’S ESCAPE

Could he surprise? He has the upbringing to do it. His Hall-of-fame trainer and owner tandem of Nick Zito and Robert V. LaPenta won the Belmont Stakes odds last year with Da’Tara, so they obviously know what it takes to win. Miner’s Escape won his last start, the Frederico Tesio Stakes, so he has momentum heading into next week. Don’t forget about his Belmont Stakes betting prospects, as he’ll offer better racebook value than the big favorites.

Soccer Betting Odds & News at BSNblogChelsea offered 50 million euros to Bayern Munich for the Bavarian team's French midfielder Franck Ribéry, as published by the British press on Thursday, while the German club denies the information.

Since the Munich institution, the team's spokesman, Markus Hörwick said that the news about Chelsea's offer is "one more big lie" of linking the player with Gallic eventual signing of a 'big' clubs in Europe.

"Again, we want to renew and Ribéry not sell," he Hörwick.

For its part, the English newspaper The Independent argues that the executive director of Chelsea, it was prepared to finance the signing of star NAFEC, and with 26 years of contract with Bayern until 2011.

The question of the salary of the player is yet to be resolved, says the rotary because Ribéry claimed 144,000 euros per week while Chelsea offers 103,000.

If the signing takes place, Chelsea completed one of the most expensive in the recruitment of world football, although it would be lower than in 2001 by Real Madrid when he signed the French midfielder Zinedine Zidane, worth 52.7 million euros.

Bayern Munich has not ceased to repeat in recent weeks that its star player is unmarketable despite Real Madrid, Milan, Manchester United or the new champion of Europe, Barcelona, aim chips.

Soccer Betting News at Gambling Advisor blogGambling Advisor blog news: Chelsea faces its last chance this saturday to salvage the season with a title in the Cup final in English football, where you face an Everton always ready to spoil the party one of the big four.

The "blues" were eliminated in the semifinals of the Champions League for the champions in the end, Barcelona; options in the Premier League title were dashed early, after a rough patch at the turn of the year that ended with the dismissal Technician, Luiz Felipe Scolari, and the League Cup on penalties was removed by Burnley, recently promoted to first division.

"A great club like Chelsea needs to win titles every year and almost everybody knows how was this season," said the Dutchman Guus Hiddink, who came to the rescue after the dismissal of Scolari.

With a win on the lawn "sacred" in Wembley, which was widely criticized dismal state, the blues provide the technician of 62 years the perfect farewell gift, because the Dutch will return to his post as coach of Russia after the match.

"We would like to dismiss him with a trophy, as a sign of gratitude," said Frank Lampard English. Under the aegis of Hiddink, appreciated by players and fans, the team lost only one game.

In case of defeat, however, the Chelsea encadenaría his second year in succession without a trophy, too much for the London club's Russian tycoon Roman Abramovich.

"A season without a title is considered a failure, and it is right that is so, if you look at the quality of the workforce," said Lampard.

"It's our last chance," he said on his part the German midfielder Michael Ballack, for whom the traditional end of the tournament, the oldest in Europe, has a special significance.

When Chelsea last won the trophy in 2007, the first of the season in London and Germany, Ballack had to watch the match as a spectator because of a foot injury.

For the German, despite the disappointments, the blues had a good season. "We had good performances. And in the Champions League we were one of the strongest teams, if not the best."

Therefore, after elimination in the final minute of their knockout semi-finals in Champions, the FA-Cup "looks like a consolation prize for the giant London.

"The Cup is a great title, recognized not only in England but throughout the world," said Hiddink, however, always attentive to the motivation of their men, who start as clear favorites to win.

The party, however, will not be any ride. Everton tied at zero, who played two matches with Chelsea in the Premier League and eliminated the league champion, Manchester United, in the semifinals.

"I think it was a moment where we need to win something," said the coach David Moyes, whose team finished fifth in the Premiership and is posited as an alternative to the dominance of the big four United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

"I do not say it now, but will come," insisted the coach of Everton, which is seeking its first title since winning the Cup in 1995.

Sports Betting blog News at BSNblogSports Betting blog reports: The state Supreme Court says a proposed sports betting lottery in Delaware does not conflict with the state constitution.

In a 22-page ruling dated Wednesday, the court said the state constitution permits lotteries that have an element of skill, as long as chance is the predominant factor in winning or losing.

The justices also said that the proposed sports lottery satisfies the constitutional requirement that lotteries be under state control, and that it does not improperly delegate lawmaking authority to the state lottery director.

The court's opinion comes in response to a request from Gov. Jack Markell for its thoughts on the sports lottery, under which Delaware would become the only state east of the Rocky Mountains offering sports wagering.
Boxing Betting News at BSNblogNikolay Valuev vs Ruslan Chagaev

Helsinki, FI

Boxing odds: -115 both ways

Ruslan Chagaev and Nikolay Valuev will finally get a chance to settle their score this Saturday in Helsinki, Finland. Valuev will be looking for revenge after a disheartening loss to Chagaev in the first meeting but the second meeting may not be much different.

Valuev is a big, powerful giant that can take almost anyone down with one punch but the smaller, quicker Chagaev dodged him for 12 rounds in the first meeting.

Chagaev’s speed proved to be a real challenge for Valuev, who not only failed to find the range but failed to find Chagaev with many power shots.

One key factor could be Chagaev’s recovery from a torn Achilles, which could obviously slow him down. He has to be a moving target – just like he was the first time – if he wants to earn back his title.

Considering Chagaev is expected to be 100% for this fight, expect the result to be very similar to their first bout. Valuev has an extra foot of height and more power, but Chagaev’s skill and speed will be king.

Boxing betting pick: Chagaev -115

Andre Berto vs Juan Urango

Hollywood, FL

Boxing odds: Berto -350

Andre Berto will square off with Juan Urango this Saturday as South Florida gets to host a meaningful fight for the first time in a while.

While both of these fighters are trying to climb the ranks in a competitive division, they are both at the opposite ends of the spectrum.

Berto is a very skilled, disciplined boxer who is technically sound. On the other hand, Urango is a street fighter, who will look to make this boxing match into a straight brawl.

The good news is that with Urango’s punch first, think second mantra, the fight should be very entertaining. Urango doesn’t dance around much and he’ll me marching straight ahead looking for home run hits the entire way.

The real test for Berto will be to face a guy that is so aggressive. Berto clearly has the skills to outbox Urango, but can he handle the pressure?

The likely answer to that question is yes. Berto will stay disciplined and if Urango gets a little off his game, Berto will take advantage.

Boxing betting pick: Berto -350

The British left to the chance to be the first team to repeat the title of Europe since the tournament adopted the format of the Champions League.

Etoo's goal came after 10 minutes in United's best moment. The Cameroonian striker by picking the right banda, received a pass from Andres Iniesta, cut and hooked with Nemanja Vidic and then finish off the first pole tip.

Until that time, Alex Ferguson had the best opportunities, pushing the ball out from the front line.

We started the match brilliantly. We had confidence and could be at the forefront, said Ferguson. Do not play to our best level, but they are a good team ... Xavi and Iniesta can keep the ball all the time. We did (the game) very difficult.

Messi is not strongly influenced by the attack of Barcelona in the first half, but his mere presence behind the lack of English. The Argentine and Henry exchanged their positions by now common in the stadium, with Messi pulled the French left and the banda on the far right.

John OSHE a free kick that went high and deflected a shot by Cristiano were the only opportunities that the rest of the United created the first time while a shot from Messi to 19 minutes caressed the crossbar.

Xavi started to tremble with United a free kick that grazed the 27 angle.

Iniesta and Xavi, the brains of Bluered midfield, controlled the game at will and at times despaired to United that he could not grab the ball.

Argentine Carlos Tevez, possibly contested his last game with the jersey of the Red Devils entered the second half by Brazilian Anderson, but his presence was not affected.

Henry waste a golden chance at 48 when he ran for the left wing with a pass filtering Xavi, left spread to Rio Ferdinand and goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar will tackle the ball when he tried to stick it down softly to second.

The attacking continued Barsa on the plug, with a poisoned serving balls Xavi Messi and Etoo.

NBA Odds – Tuesday Basketball Betting Pick

NBA Conference Finals Betting Odds at BSNblogAs any experienced NBA odds player knows, anything can happen in basketball betting. The Cavaliers vs Magic odds have proven just that, as the Cavs would be down 3-0 in the series had LeBron James not beaten the buzzer in Game 2. Tuesday’s Game 4 may ultimately decide the series, as the Cavaliers odds would gain momentum heading home 2-2 while the Magic would take a stranglehold on the series by going up 3-1. What will happen?

Cavaliers vs Magic odds: Game 4 Tuesday, May 26 at 8:35 p.m. ET

NBA odds: Cavaliers -1

As dominant as the Cavs looked in their back-to-back sweep victories over rounds one and two, there’s no point reminiscing, as they’ve been soundly outplayed in this series. LeBron has been his usual All-World self but the help hasn’t been there for him. Delonte West has been cold and Mo Williams has been colder, to the tune of sub-33-per cent shooting in every game so far this basketball betting series.

Like LeBron, Dwight Howard has been his usual self for the most part, but the key to Orlando’s success has been its hot, hot shooting. Rashard Lewis has shot 50 per cent or better from three-point land in every game this series, while Hedo Turkoglu has been hot too. The Cavs got into massive foul trouble in Game 3, with 34 fouls, and Turkoglu in particular made them pay, draining 11 of 12 shots from the line. In total, the Magic got to the line a whopping 52 times, hitting 39 shots and essentially making it impossible for the Cavs to win.

Don’t write the Cavs off at the online sports book just yet. You know that (a) they won’t foul the Magic that many times in a game again, (b) West and Williams have nowhere to go but up for Cleveland and (c) Lewis and Turkoglu have nowhere to go but down for Orlando. The Cavs were a 67-win team and are still too good to fall behind 3-1 in this series. They’ll win a tight one and take this intriguing NBA odds matchup back to Cleveland tied 2-2.
