Starts Case Review Against Plaxico Burress

NFL Betting at Gambling Advisor blogThe immediate future of the former receiver open the New York Giants, Plaxico Burress, is defined when the NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, began reviewing his incident for illegal possession of firearm and shooting in which the player was injured.

In doubt his status for 2009.

Adolpho Birch, vice president of legal and political work in the NFL, reported last Friday that Burress is reviewing his case and that the commissioner could suspend him if it is determined that the recipient violated the personal conduct policy in the league.

In November 2008, the man who caught the touchdown pass of the victory of the Giants in Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots, was shot in the thigh in a nightclub in New York.

For this incident, Burress still faces charge for illegal possession of a weapon and could be sentenced to a sentence of up to three years and a half if he is convicted.

Goodell has the power to suspend Burress escape even though a conviction in prison. Their indefinite legal situations in the NFL and have caused several teams interested in the services of the former Steele also decided to hire him for the 2009 season, after the Giants, giving it low in April.

In his career, Burress accumulated 505 receptions for 7.845 yards and 55 touchdowns in nine seasons. The Giants had signed a contract extension with him for five years and $ 35 million in September 2008.

Golf Betting Odds at BSNblogJust because British Open golf odds aren’t here yet doesn’t mean there aren’t important tournaments to bet on in the meantime. This week, it’s Tiger’s tournament on the schedule – the AT&T National. The field is set and it’s not amazingly strong, but there are still a few golfers set to challenge the host, including last year’s winner.

The favorite, as always, will be Mr. Tiger Woods. He missed his own tourney last season due to injury, of course, but placed sixth in 2007. He still has to get his driving under control, but there’s simply no way he doesn’t contend this week.

The next man to consider at your offshore sportsbook has to be Anthony Kim. He won the AT&T National last season and, while he’s been somewhat of a bust after all the hype entering 2009, he’s quietly playing much better of late, as his last two tournaments (the U.S. Open and the Travelers Championship) yielded his best finishes since the first week of the season. If he’s sticking his approaches the way he can, he’ll be in the hunt until the end.

Hunter Mahan can’t be ignored either. He’s established a new personal skill level, seemingly hanging around the top of the leaderboard more and more. His last six tournaments yield an interesting trend: 72nd, 45th, 27th, 14th, 6th, 4th. He’s improving every week, so you have to think he’s on the cusp of a victory. He’ll offer good value so you have to consider him one of the best online sports picks this weekend.

What a year it’s been for Lucas Glover. He’s more than just the U.S. Open champ too; what most bettors probably don’t realize is that he has two other top-three finishes on tour this season. He stayed hot with a very respectable 11th last week, and impressive finish given that the U.S. Open went five days the week before and should’ve tired him out. If you want to ride the hot hand, you could do worse than Glover.

In the “due” category is Jim Furyk. He hasn’t won since 2007 but has flirted with victory on and off all year, posting three straight top-10s before slipping to 33rd at the U.S. Open. He won’t be intimidated no matter whom he’s paired with – even if it’s Tiger – so he’s a solid sleeper.

Best betting management pick: Anthony Kim. Tiger is tempting but he still has some tweaking to do before the British Open. Kim is heating up and a return to his stomping grounds of 2008 should do wonders for his confidence.

UFC 100 Betting – Lesnar To Get His Revenge

UFC 100 Odds at BSNblogNow that the UFC 100 odds are up, the main

A lot people think that this UFC fight card might be the best of all time, which is definitely up for debate. Aside from seeing Brock Lesnar fight Frank Mir, and George St. Pierre versus Thiago Alves (no relation to the tennis player), and Dan Henderson squaring off with Michael Bisping, there’s actually still more attractions on the card.

A lot of people want to see how Jon Jones – one of the sport’s up-and-coming stars – fares in his first fight since crushing Stephan Bonner.

This could be the most star-studded event since we examined the Super Bowl odds back in February, so let’s examine the main fight and make a pick:

Frank Mir vs Brock Lesnar

Odds: Lesnar -250

The sportsbooks are sending a pretty clear message by making Lesnar such a clear favorite: they don’t think Frank Mir can win.

It might be hard to argue with them because they usually know what they are doing and secondly, there is a good pedigree for picking Lesnar to win.

For starters, Lesnar dominated the first fight and only lost because he made a rookie mistake. As he was on top of Mir while the two were fight on the ground, Mir , the submission expert, caught a hold of Lesnar’s foot and submitted him.

The important note here is that it was Lesnar’s second-ever MMA fight at that time and he was fairly raw at that point.

He’s grown quite a bit since that time and has worked on his ground defense significantly.

When you look at how this fight will shape up, Mir’s main edge is trying to submit Lesnar, but you have to figure that Lesnar’s radar will be up after last time.

Secondly, you have to factor that Lesnar has improved as an MMA fighter overall. He has been training with fighters, has gained fight experience and has more knowledge than he did the first time around.

Standing, it would be pretty hard not to give Lesnar the edge because of the power his punches pack. And on the mat, Lesnar is a wrestling expert, so he has an edge there too.

As long as he doesn’t get caught in another submission, this fight is his to lose.

Sports Pick: Lesnar -250

Fernando Bryant Said goodbye to the NFL

NFL Betting at Gambling Advisor blogThe corner with 10 seasons of experience in the league Fernando Bryant ended his career by announcing his retirement after three military equipment.

Were dismissed as "steel"

Bryant joined the roster of champions Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl XLIII, however, had limited participation in the regular season while playing only two games after being hired as a free agent last November 11. He saw action in the playoffs or the Super Bowl.

Last March, he had signed as a free agent a year before heading to Pittsburgh's Bryant McFadden corner holder to Arizona, however, Fernando Bryant opted for retirement.

In 1999, a graduate of the University of Alabama, was selected number 26 throughout the Draft, taken by the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he played for five years.

32 years of age, Bryant started 109 of 112 games in his career and accumulated seven interceptions and nine loose balls recovered.

In August enters Canton.

Thomas, who died in a car accident frebreo 2000 to 33 years old, is considered one of the best linebackers in the history of the NFL and voters for the precinct of the immortals of Canton finally appointed to become a part the generation of 2009 in a ceremony to be held next August 8.

NFL Betting News at BSNblog Emilio and Gloria Estefan purchased a minority share of the Miami Dolphins in what became the first people of Cuban-American to have a property in the NFL.

The news came during a press conference with Emilio and Gloria Estefan.

In a telephone interview with NFLatino.com, Emilio Estefan told us how he was given this purchase.

"Steve Ross (majority owned by the Dolphins) asked me," said Emilio Estefan. "For me, being the first Cuban-American who enters the football, which is one of the things that most Americans are in United States, I have always wanted to do things that leave history to the new Hispanic youth, my children and new Hispanics, this is the music that introduced a new sound, something new is implemented here, a new goal that is achieved for new Latinos in United States. "

The Dolphins have not reached a Super Bowl since January 20, 1985, the successful music producer who believes that is a party for him on set.

"So I grabbed me, so I came, I always have good luck."

With optimism and courage that characterize the Estefan, Emilio did not hesitate to give a prediction for next year's Miami Dolphins.

"I've always been a very positive person and I think that things in life can be achieved and has been my philosophy since I was a child. I was a poor immigrant and spent so much work without my family ... I always looked at the positive side of life, so my prediction is that at least we will reach the finals of the Super Bowl. "

Emilio Estefan for the team in South Florida not only means a collection of football.

"The Miami Dolphins mean the story of my life, I remember 1972 when they won the championship, I saw all the people playing the horn and I got to play the horn and is part of the history of what the American dream" .

Having a Latino owner in the "Dolphin" gives a new face to the franchise.

"Now we have a Latino presence, we have a voice for advocacy for events like the Latino Hispanic Heritage Week, to bring more Latinos to watch the football."

Gloria and Emilio Estefan are great friends of Dan Marino, ex querterback of the Dolphins, who see great strengths in Miami for the 2009 NFL season.

"Dan Marino told me the other day that how strong this team is just that, the team, which is very solid and has great confidence that it will be a very good team."

"The story continues to change and is a door that opens not only for Estefan, for achieving what the American dream and especially for immigrants."

USA beats Spain - Confederations Cup Semifinals

Soccer Betting News at Gambling Advisor blogThe Spanish players said yesterday they assume their role as favorites, but do not underestimate for a United States semifinal this afternoon.

"We assume that we are favorites, but will not be easy at all," said midfielder Xavi Hernandez.

"A United States I have seen stronger than when we played a friendly with them last year (in Santander, Spain won 1-0). Have evolved. At that party we had things easy. They have improved offensively from midfield up, "said Xavi.

The wheel of Barcelona said that the fact that Spain is the favorite, will leave the U.S. team more relaxed.

"Will they play with less pressure because they have nothing to lose. In this regard, we have more pressure. We assume that we are favorites, and take the pressure, but we know the importance of this tournament and we want to reach the final. "

The steering wheel don´t belive Catalan that failure to play with Italy, the favorite to win second place in Group B, in the end he United States, is an advantage.

"Italy has always been historically difficult, but has not lived up to the Americans and are always very motivated," he said

For its part, the lateral Sergio Ramos said he hoped that Spain could not achieve its second international final in a year and that one of the keys will be counter-play ball to stop the Americans, with men high for shots of the head, as Oguchi Onyewu.

Golf Betting Odds at BSNblogIt was a long weekend after a rainy US Open – and some offshore sportsbook in Ireland, who lost nearly $2 million after Glover won as a 175-to-1 underdog – and on a shortened week there will be a shortened field at the Travelers.

Tiger Woods obviously won’t part take, so there should be less pressure on the other golfers. Look for some Tour veterans to take advantage.

Here’s a look at the Travelers odds and some betting picks for this week’s tournament:

Hunter Mahan: 8-to-1

Hunter Mahan started the week out nearly 15-to-1 but has dropped all the way down to 8-to-1 after some heavy public action. A lot of people making their sports wagering picks have been backing him.

He played well enough to win the US Open last week but just fell a little short and the other key stat is that he’s played really well here over the last three years. He hasn’t finished outside of a tie for second in his last three starts here.

That’s good enough to make him the pick on this course.

David Toms: 16.5-to-1

David Toms may be a forgotten name but he has been playing much better this season. He tied for second at the St. Jude Classic a couple of weeks ago and then started the US Open with a 69 in the first round.

He flamed out in second round but the reality is that he has played fairly well this season. He has six Top 10’s this year.

With a weak field, maybe he gets on the board for the first time since 2006.

Vijay Singh: 16-to-1

Vijay Singh is an interesting pick this weekend. He’s among the favorites on the betting odds for the tournament and some people might be surprised to see it.

The key note here is that Singh is a workhorse and a quick turnaround from tournament to tournament doesn’t figure to affect him as it might affect some of the other golfers.

Singh has been playing better this year and had a good final round at Bethpage, which is something he may be able to carry over into the Travelers.

He’s finished fourth and fifth here before so he figures to be buzzing around the leader board on Sunday.

Tuesday MLB Betting Picks

MLB Betting Odds at BSNblogLooking ahead to upcoming UFC odds? Not to worry – we’ll have plenty of analysis soon. In the meantime, why not relax and bet on some exciting baseball action between big contenders this week? Here are a few Tuesday games to bet on at your offshore sportsbook.

Phillies vs Rays odds

Tuesday, June 23, 7:08 p.m. ET

Jamie Moyer (4-6, 6.35) vs David Price (1-1, 3.46)

MLB betting lines: Phillies +140, Rays -160

Face it, MLB betting fans: the amazing Jamie Moyer is finally starting to look his age. There’s no shame in that – he’s 46 years old – but bettors are starting to shy away from picking the Phillies on nights when he starts. Well, make sure Tuesday is not one of those nights, as the Phillies have a chance for an upset.

Moyer has struggled mightily at home but he’s respectable on the road; a 5.40 ERA away from Citizens Bank Park isn’t good but it’s sometimes enough to win since the powerful Phillies’ bats give so much run support.

Tampa starter David Price is a dynamic pitcher, good at home, but his walk rate is out of control, as he’s issued 18 free passes in 26 innings this season. If he can’t hit the plate against the Phillies, they can let him put guys on and wait for a mistake. If I’m making sports predictions for Tuesday, I’m thinking that’s exactly what happens.

MLB betting pick: Phillies +140

Cardinals vs Mets odds

Tuesday, June 23, 7:10 PM ET

Joel Pineiro (5-8, 3.77) vs Livan Hernandez (5-1, 4.18)

MLB betting lines: Cardinals -115, Mets -105

Livan Hernandez has won back lots of support among those who make baseball picks, but forgive me for not being overly impressed. The five wins are nice and he’s been solid at home for the Mets, but he still allows long balls like crazy, even when he’s successful. Albert Pujols is on an epic tear right now, so it would be shocking not to see him go yard off Hernandez, especially since he’s already done so in three times in 32 at-bats against him (with a .344 average and 1.042 OPS over that span).

Joel Pineiro is, admittedly, a Jekyll-and-Hyde starter and a trip to New York should put him in “Mr. Hyde” form; he’s 2-5 with a 5.27 road ERA this season. However, it’s hard to imagine a Mets lineup missing Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado and now Carlos Beltran doing too much damage. Pujols alone should lead the Cards to victory.

MLB betting pick: Cardinals -115

Golf Betting Odds at BSNblogThose playing their US Open betting odds had to wait out a postponement, but it didn’t hurt them as much as it did the golfers, and the world’s No.1 player is real danger of missing the cut in only his second major.

Tiger Woods struggled to a +4 in his first 18 holes, 12 of which came on Friday morning. A double bogey on 15 started the slide, and then Woods proceeded to bogey 16 and 18 after birdies on 10 and 14 had him in a good position. His playing partners, Angel Cabrera (+4) and Padraig Harrington (+6) didn’t fare much better, considering that the trio had combined for seven of the last eight major-championship wins.

Players like Mike Weir (-4 through seven), David Toms (-2 through eight), Anthony Kim (-2 through seven), Sean O’Hair (-2 through six) and last year’s “people’s champion”, Rocco Mediate (-2 through six) are all off to good starts. Ian Poulter has been tipped by many who make sports picks to surprise the field, and he got through with a par score in his first round. The weather could actually favor foreign players like Poulter, who is English, as they play in much worse conditions on the other side of the Atlantic. Weather like the rain storms at Bethpage Black are expected when it comes to the British Open, for example.

Fan favorite Phil Mickelson is -1 through his first eight holes, and he proved to be even more popular than Tiger during the practice rounds this week, as fans wanted to support him because of his wife Amy’s breast-cancer scare, and it was his 39th birthday on Tuesday. “Lefty” is looking to ride the wave of emotion to a golf betting win, and his second-place result at Bethpage Black in 2002 is one of four runner-up finishes for him in the US Open, so take a look for him in your offshore sportsbook.

NFL Betting News at BSN SportsAlthough there have been numerous business meetings between the management of both teams with several companies interested in sponsoring the building of $ 1.600 million in New Jersey Meadowlands, John Mara, executive president of the Giants, said that no agreement had been reached and that cree might not have to when you start the 2010 season.

"I think it's more important to have a proper agreement and if that means having to wait beyond the opening of the stadium, we will," said Mara. "I do not think that would be appropriate. I hope to have something before it. "

Mara did not specify the names of companies that have shown interest, despite the economic crisis, nor the amount sought by the equipment grant rights to the property name.

The German insurance company Allianz was to close a deal last year that would have meant $ 30 million per year for Giants and Jets, however, negotiations broke down when it was revealed that the German company once had ties to the regime Nazi. Immediately, there was criticism from Jewish organizations, Holocaust survivors and supporters for the chance to see the stadium's name linked to the memory of the tragic events during World War II.

The Giants announce an agreement with the Timex watch company for 15 years to grant rights in the name of their new training camps and corporate buildings, as well as the Meadowlands sports complex.

NFL Odds – Broncos In For A Very Long Season

Sports Betting News at BSN SportsThe NFL odds for the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl just keep climbing.

The Broncos finished the 2008 season about as well Mike Tyson finished his boxing career, which has led to this tailspin of events.

The Mike Shanahan and Jay Cutler-led Broncos were sitting pretty at 8-5 with a three-game lead in the NFC West in early December. Fast forward through a three-game losing streak and a missed playoff opportunity, and the party began.

Head coach and general manager Mike Shanahan’s firing was nothing short of a surprise. Most people were betting management would undoubtedly bring him back after injuries hampered the team’s success, and not coaching.

After Shanahan was removed, 32-year-old offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was made head coach and the Broncos were off and running. McDaniels immediately tried to trade for his former project, Matt Cassel, and in doing so pissed off current Pro Bowler, Jay Cutler.

No problem – the Broncos simply traded Cutler away.

After the Broncos sent the face of their franchise packing, it looked like there would be a calm after the storm. Incorrect.

Now Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Marshall is also requesting a trade, which will soon be granted to him.

Broncos fans are completely downtrodden. They look like they are going to head into the coming season without their two best players, which is like Wimbledon betting fans watching the Grand Slam without Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal in the tournament.

Last year, all the Broncos had was Shanahan, Cutler and Marshall. Now they have absolutely nothing.

Their defense was horrendous last year and very little attention has been paid to it this offseason. Veteran safety Brian Dawkins was one of the few additions but don’t bank on a 36-year-old to turn around the 30th-ranked scoring defense. Furthermore, the Broncos cut cornerback Dre Bly and their other stalwart starter, Champ Bailey, started to wear down.

On offense, Shanahan churned out 1000-yard runner one after the other but now the Broncos won’t even be able to rely on that anymore as McDaniels is a different type of coach.

This has been one of the worst offseasons in NFL history and it’s all been orchestrated by the young McDaniels. NFL daily picks won’t be backing his team very often, especially not after their offseason included canning a potential Hall-of-Fame coach and dismissing a Pro Bowl quarterback and wideout.

Now they’ll head into the season with Kyle Orton as their top quarterback and Eddie Royal as their best wideout. On defense, their whole unit is still in flux.

While new coaches sometimes have a honeymoon period, McDaniels has fast tracked past that stage and is already on the hot seat. It will be a very long year in Denver.

Brett Favre Play in 2009

NFL Betting News at Gambling Advisor blogThe leader of all time passer Brett Favre admitted that considers return to the NFL and that the offensive coach Brad Childress of the Minnesota Vikings is best accommodates you to return.

Second withdrawal False

The quarterback owner of the most important records in the league was interviewed in "Joe Buck Live" on HBO chain, which recognized that information and rumors about him and his return to the beginning to tire the slatted public.

In his first public appearance since he retired from the New York Jets last February, Favre clarified some of the rumors that have been driven around his person recently.

Confirmed that two weeks ago underwent surgery and half by Dr. James Andrews to repair a tendon from his right shoulder and it will take four to five weeks whether the procedure was successful.

It also accepted that the Vikings a trainer visited him in Mississippi, last Sunday, for stretching and strength exercises for the shoulder surgery.

The Vikings report to their training camp in six weeks with Field Marshal Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels, who had to live with the rumors of the arrival of Favre.

The legendary No. 4 said to be wearing the jersey bizarre purple color of the Vikings to face his former team, Green Bay, but said that Vince Lombardi was the end of his career to lead the Washington Redskins and nobody called him a traitor .

"It's football," Favre said. "It's not life or death."
