The 2009 NFL over/unders have been released and there are some interesting lines. As expected the New England Patriots top the number with 11.5 wins and the Detroit Lions bring in the low number with a O/U of 5.
An over that I really like is Tennessee at 9. Seems like such a low number for a team that brings virtually everyone back, except for Albert Haynseworth. Remember the Titans won 13 games in a row last year. Another over that seems too good to be true is the Arizona Cardinals at 8.5. Does Boldin’s status mean that much to the defending NFC Champs. They play in the leagues worst division, shouldn’t that pretty much be five wins right there?
Some other overs that seem attractive are the Steelers, Bears, and Houston. Why doesn’t Vegas just not move the line up/down a .5 win instead of charging such high juice lines?
And as far as unders go my favorite one might be the Oakland Raiders. What do you guys think?

Today is Derby Day! Zach over at Midtown Lunch (one of my favorite sites) has one of the greatest pictures ever. It is a great reminder for everyone to get over to your local off track betting establishments and get your wagers in on the 2009 Kentucky Derby.

Giselle Bundchen reportedly has won $1 million betting on Italian soccer juggernaut Inter Milan with British-based bookmaker Stanleybet International.
“According to the Metropolitan Post, Gisele has â€œcomplete faithâ€ in Jose Mourinho and started placing her weekly bets last December.”
How lucky can people be? She is already worth $150 million. I have trouble hitting a $50 dollar 4 team parlay.
BTW, this is a deadly combination. A hot chick who loves sports gambling. I am better off not knowing things like this. This is how restraining orders happen.

You know it has to be bad when the MGM and Greektown casinos decide to ban Allen Iverson. With the amount of money he is known to lose there, his actions must be atrocious. As the Detroit News points out.
“The NBA is looking into a disturbance at Greektown that involved one of Iverson’s body guards. Iverson may have been trying to act as a peacemaker but his body guard was involved in some kind of tussle.
Iverson, though, has been banned mostly for his boorish behavior. He is a bad loser, and he loses a lot, often throwing his chips or cards at the dealer. He has been warned about improper behavior at the tables repeatedly. He is often loud and disruptive, according to witnesses, rude to dealers, other players and the wait staff.
Earlier this season, Iverson caused a disturbance at a casino outside of Minneapolis. He’s also earned a bad reputation at Atlantic City.”
This is not looking good for me. I once had a dream that I played craps with Allen Iverson in an Atlantic City casino. Yes, this is what my dreams are made of. Some people might consider this a problem. I consider it fun!

Not only is Ty Lawson regarded as the best point guard in the country, it seems he has handles off the court as well. Craps is probably my favorite pit game in the casino and it seems like the reigning ACC Player of the Year has the same affinity for the dice.
Actually, I already played, Lawson said this afternoon. We got in last night, and Coach gave us a curfew of 1:30 (a.m.). I went over to Greektown and won about $250. So I already had my time there. It”s probably the last time I go there before the games start.
It seems like he wins everytime too. I need to start rolling with him. Unless he bets the don’t pass line! Then I despise him with every ounce of hate in my body.
“Much like on the court, Lawson is usually a winner, having peaked with an $1,800 score in the Bahamas.”
The only time I lost was in Reno; that’s when everybody on the team lost, Lawson said. “It’s the only place I lost. The other five or six times I did gamble, I won at least $500. Last night, it was all craps. It was like within an hour.
Ace-deuce on the hop!

Mayor Gavin Newsome of San Francisco and Mayor Manny Diaz of Miami have a little bet on tonight’s Emerald Bowl, where the Miami Hurricanes take on the Cal Bears at AT&T Park. Newsom has wagered a case of Napa wine and several loaves of sourdough bread, and Diaz has wagered a bushell of Florida oranges.
Hey DeGags, what’s the over/under on the Jets game Sunday? I’ll take Miami and wager a satchel of soybeans against your bushell of wheat germ. Deal?

Naturally the feel good story of the baseball season has been the Tampa Bay Rays. And wouldn’t it be a story book ending if they finished the season winning the pennant and the World Series. Well, there are some sportsbooks in Vegas that hope that doesn’t happen. VegasWatch interviews Jay Rood, Race & Sports Book Director for all 12 of the MGM’s books and finds out some interesting facts.
“What did you guys have the Rays listed at to win the AL East, and World Series, back in March?
The Rays were 75-1 to win the AL and 150-1 to win the World Series.
What team winning the World Series would cost you the most? The least?
The team we’d get hurt by the most is again the Rays and the team we’d get hurt by the least will be the Angels.”
Now who wouldn’t love those odds. Go Red Sox!

Now with Brett Farve finally a New York Jet, we can really look to see what the experts think. And by experts, I mean Vegas. Back in May the 2008 NFL Over/Under Team Totals came out and had the Jets listed at over 7.5 (-150). Now that Farve will be wearing Gang Green’s #4, the total moved to over 8 (-155). It’s not the full game I expected, but we know Vegas knows numbers better than anyone. So there you go Jets fans. Jump on board now and since you all seem so confident, you should be crushing this bet.

We all know that the chips are stacked against you when gambling, but as VegasWatch points out they are really against you if you bet on this prop. BetUS has released their odds on the chances each NFL team will go undefeated this upcoming season. What looks like great value considering you rarely find odds like these ever, is actually the worse kind of wager. While the New England Patriots went undefeated last season, the chances of them repeating are highly unlikely, yet BetUS only offers 15/1 on this while VegasWatch has the true odds at 78/1. You need everything to go write a team is to go undefeated, i.e. the Ravens/Patriots game last year.
My favorite has to be the odds for the Atlanta Falcons to stay unbeaten. BetUS only offers 500/1 on something that in reality is something like 198,115,000/1. I am going to go out on a limb here and say they won’t do it. In fact I pretty much think no team will go unbeaten this year. Again, this is why I am a successful gambler; at least I tell myself that.
