New Jersey sports betting law struck down by U.S. appeals court | Reuters

solicitors general were on opposite sides of the case, with Paul Clement arguing for the sports organizations and Theodore Olson representing New Jersey.

“We were relying on having sports betting to give a big boost to our ailing Atlantic City casinos and our suffering racetracks,” state Senator Raymond Lesniak, a Democrat from Elizabeth who sponsored the 2014 law and a 2011 voter referendum allowing sports betting, said in an interview. Governor of the State of New Jersey et al, 3rd U.S. government, called the law “yet another attempt” to allow sports betting “only under the conditions of the state’s choosing.”

Nevada bookmakers made $231.8 million on sports betting in 2015, the state has said.

Reflecting the stakes, two former U.S.

“We are reviewing the opinion and considering our options,” said Paul Loriquet, a spokesman for state Attorney General Christopher Porrino.

New Jersey’s law banned wagers on state college teams and limited bets to people age 21 and older at casinos and racetracks.. Circuit Court of Appeals, Nos. 14-4546, 14-4568, 14-4569.

“We do have two judges dissenting,” Lesniak said, “and we certainly will take a shot at the Supreme Court.”

It is also a victory for Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League and the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which opposed New Jersey’s laws.

The 10-2 decision is a defeat for Republican Governor Chris Christie, who has seen courts void two state laws, including one in 2012, designed to raise revenue through sports betting.

Clement was not immediately available for comment.

Rendell acknowledged the law’s “salutary purpose” in trying to revive those troubled industries, but said PASPA does not unconstitutionally “commandeer” the state.

The American Gaming Association, an industry trade group, wants PASPA repealed.

New Jersey argued that its law amounted to only a “partial repeal” of its prohibitions on sports betting, did not “license or authorize by law” such betting, and could help curb the “thriving” black market in the practice.

A federal appeals court on Tuesday said New Jersey cannot legalize sports betting, in a big defeat for supporters of the years-long effort to allow such wagers in the state.

“Because PASPA, by its terms, prohibits states from authorizing by law sports gambling, and because the 2014 law does exactly that, the 2014 law violates federal law,” Circuit Judge Marjorie Rendell wrote.

The sports organizations, backed by the U.S. The other thought PASPA was unconstitutional because it violated state sovereignty.

The case is National Collegiate Athletic Association et al v. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia said the 2014 law allowing sports betting at casinos and racetracks violated the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, a 1992 federal law prohibiting the practice in all states other than Nevada, Delaware, Montana and Oregon.

One dissenting judge thought the 2014 law permissible despite PASPA. “It’s just wrong for Congress to deny New Jersey what the state of Nevada has.”

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

Parlay betting

She bet that both teams would score more than 45 points. The Patriots and  Seahawks were 14-point favorites and they both won by 17. Her card had the Cardinals and Bengals as four-point favorites, and they won by 23 and 10, respectively.

The final game of the parlay was on Monday night, where she had the Lions as a three-point underdog. Not only did Polia’s payout come through, but a 15-game parlay where bettors just have to pick the winners also hit. “So I thought it was strange when I looked at it [Tuesday] morning and saw that I won.”

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

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

The Chargers, as a two-point favorite, beat the Dolphins by 16. A progressive pot of $170,782 was split by 17 people.

Aside from the Giants as five-point underdogs, Polia’s card had the Vikings as a five-point favorite, and they won by 21. They beat the Saints, 35-27.

“I somehow drove back home to tell my boyfriend in person,” Polia said. “Of course, he didn’t believe me.”

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.

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.

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

“On Sunday morning, my boyfriend and I were sitting on the couch talking about how spreads worked,” Polia said. 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.

Polia then called up William Hill and the person on the other line informed her that she was picking against the spread. She had the Falcons as a three-point underdog, and the Texans and Redskins as one-point underdogs; they won and covered. They scored 61.

Bogdanovich said the $5 15-team parlay card for $100,000 has hit before. “He was frustrated since I wasn’t getting it right away.”

“I remembered that I picked the  Giants and they lost,” Polia said.

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. The Chiefs, as an eight-point favorite, crushed the Ravens by 20.

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. William Hill paid out a couple times in Delaware, where betting on the cards is permitted.. Polia had the Giants as a five-point underdog.

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.

For William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich, this weekend wasn’t a good one, to say the least. 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. Polia also was required to pick the over or under on that game. The Packers won by 10 as a three-point favorite. The Panthers beat the Giants by three

Horse Racing Systems: 5 That Work

Parlay betting

To the extent that most handicappers use pedigree at all, it’s usually to identify horses that may improve when switched to the turf, or those who may be expected to win as first time starters. I’ve identified some of the most useful handicapping factors that have a proven history of doing much better than the track takeout and put them together with some simple rules that should make your trips to the racetrack more fun and profitable. Let me let you in on a little secret about these “magic formulas”. They will, however increase the chances of a profitable day at the races by ensuring that your wager dollars go where they have the best chance of success. Just don’t expect to quit your day job.

This causes the favorite to be under bet in the place pool, leading to a profit opportunity for us to take advantage of by betting the favorite to place. It must follow, therefore, that if we bet the best horse that has started at least twice, we stand an excellent chance of beating the takeout, particularly in races that have several first and second time starters.

Second, the very nature of the parimutuel system itself means that any profits to be made from following a particular set of rules will quickly be arbitraged away as the followers of that system drive down the odds of horses chosen by the system.

For instance, many speed figure handicappers reported making horse racing profits in the 60’s and 70’s simply by betting horses with the best last race speed figure. It should go without saying that you should actually like the favorite’s chances after evaluating the race with your own handicapping.

In fact, pedigree does not generally offer wager value with one curious exception: well bred horses do surprisingly well in maiden claiming races. My study suggests that’s not the case.

Horse Racing System #3 – In maiden claiming races, bet the horse with the best pedigree. In the first place, the parimutuel takeout in horse racing is large (over 15%) and the mutuel pools are relatively efficient, so that even systems with a strong basis in reality can’t overcome the size of the takeout.

For as long as humans have bet on horse racing there have been system sellers trying to con the gullible into parting with their hard earned money with the lure of easy profits to be made on the sport of kings. With the BRIS pp’s you can use the Sire Production Factor in concert with the pedigree rating. The inside post combined with early speed is a particularly potent combination, since the horse will not have to exert himself as much to gain his preferred position at the front of the pack.

First time starters return only about 60 cents on the dollar, and second time starters are only a little better, returning less than 70 cents on the dollar. Most people who love horse racing would be thrilled just to win a little more and lose a little less on their trips to the track.

The horse with the best last race speed figure (whether Beyer, BRIS, or Equibase) may not be the best horse in the race, but he’s probably not far off, so we can use that as a proxy for selection purposes.

Instead of blindly betting all horses breaking from the inside, you might use this to supplement your handicapping, paying particular attention to the inside horse, and betting it when you like the horse on other handicapping grounds. This system takes advantage of one of the few glaring inefficiencies in the parimutuel pools, namely that first and second time starters are badly over-bet.

Horse Racing System #2 – Bet horses that have an excuse for a poor performance in their last race. None of them work.

How do we identify the best pedigree, then? If you’re using the DRF past performances, use the stud fee as a proxy for quality, and the Tomlinson figure to judge suitability for the distance and surface. I was able to replicate this result in my own study of nearly 100,000 races conducted a decade later.

However, just because systems won’t make you rich doesn’t mean there’s no place for them at all in a horseplayer’s arsenal. This is another mistake that bettors make: in a race with a clear standout, many people give up on the win pool and bet their choice to place, thinking that they’ll get paid even if the favorite wins.. This is somewhat counter-intuitive since you’d expect that horses with good pedigrees that end up in the maiden claiming ranks probably can’t run at all. My own studies have shown a similar advantage for the inside post in routes.

Looking for a dead simple horse racing system that will allow you to quit your job and make a living betting the horses in just 10 minutes a day? Good luck with that!

Horse Racing System #1 – In maiden races, bet the horse with the best last race speed figure that has had at least two career starts. My computer studies of pedigree, based on nearly 100,000 races, suggest that using pedigree in that manner offers no advantage to the player.

Nunamaker reported that the inside post in dirt route races won at a 20% greater than expected rate, and lost only 10 cents on the dollar, much better than the track take. Because speed figures have gained in popularity over the years, anyone following that system now would have trouble coming up with gas money for the ride home from the track.

Horse Racing System #4 – Bet low-priced favorites to place. Thanks for reading, and see you in the winner’s circle.

Look for comment lines like “bled”, “lost rider”, “clipped heels”, “stumbled”, “steadied”, “between horses”, “rank”, and “jumped shadows” that suggest that a horse’s last race was not indicative of its true ability. One of the few anomalies turned up by Michael Nunamaker in his pioneering computer study “Modern Impact Values”, published in 1994, was that horses breaking from the inside post position in route races won more than their fair share of races, and were under-bet by the public. In most case the public seems to take a horse’s last running line at face value. This offers opportunity to more diligent players.

Horse Racing System #5 – Bet Horses breaking from the inside post in route races. Few bother to even look at the comment line for the race, let alone take the trouble to seek out and watch the replay of the race. The horse with the best combination of the two is the play.

None of these systems will make you rich, or even guarantee that you will make a profit. The inside post in turf routes actually showed a small profit, but this was based on a small sample size and cannot be relied upon. If the tote board suggests that the public is overlooking these mitigating circumstances, make your play.

In that spirit

How the Sports Betting Line is Made by RJ Bell

gambling, Sport, Sport gambling

“The #1 thing for us is to make a line for each game that creates good two-way action. This usually includes having up-to-date power ratings on each team. .

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.

There is a common misconception that point spreads represent the oddsmakers’ prediction of how many points the favorite will win by. We do this by drawing from past experiences and applying them to current situations. 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).

What Is the Line Trying to Accomplish?

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. “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). Each of these oddsmakers bring unique opinions, strengths and weaknesses to the process. People think it’s much more complicated, but it’s not.”

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. 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. 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.

“The main objective is that our clients get equal action on both sides,” Seba said.

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.

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).

Contributed by:

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

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. That is not the case at all – their intent is NOT to evenly split the ATS result between the teams; rather, their goal is to attract equal betting action on both sides. By 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. Reasons for such adjustments include:

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

The opening line is the first line created by the oddsmakers, which is then sent out to sportsbooks. By moving the line, sportsbooks can influence how the public bets on a particular game. Mike Seba is a Senior Oddsmaker at LVSC and has been making lines for the last six years. Seba explained that it all starts with each oddsmaker creating a line on each game based upon their own personal approach. If we’ve done that, we’ve done our job.”

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

Las Vegas Sports Consultants (LVSC) is the world’s premier oddsmaking company and the most respected authority on making the lines.

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. In doing so they attempt to make more attractive the team that is getting less action. Of course there is an entire method to the madness on how the opening line is created. 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)

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.

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. The power ratings are adjusted after each game a team plays.

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. Since the oddsmaker’s ultimate goal is equally dividing the betting action, public perception and betting patterns must be taken into account. Examples of non-game factors that would require an adjustment to a team’s power rating are key player injuries and player trades. Oddsmakers have to determine if any changes are necessary and send out an “adjusted line.”

Why the Line Changes

How the Opening Line Is Made

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

How to Make Money Handicapping Horse Races and Betting on Horseracing

Parlay betting

The ones who depend upon luck or some other esoteric method are more like lottery players than handicappers, but the thing they all have in common is that all there money goes into the same pool and some from each group will be successful while many will not.

There are thousands of people trying to make a living from horse racing by handicapping the horse races and then betting on horse races.

Your chances of success are much greater if you educate yourself, prepare, practice, and work hard, but there are no guarantees. That edge is what separates gamblers from handicappers and is why, in the long run, handicappers win more, but in all fairness, they don’t just win it, they earn it.

. The only work they do is to walk into the club house and maybe read a simple list of horses and riders. If the success rate for handicappers is 5-10% then it is probably 1-2% for those depending upon luck.

For some people, horse racing handicapping is an intellectual sport and they prepare themselves and work hard at it. The thrill of winning is probably pretty close to the same for each group, though the handicappers also have the satisfaction of working hard and getting rewarded for it.

The way you make money handicapping and betting on horse races is in finding a good bet.

The big advantage that the handicapper has over the gambler is that he or she has an idea of each horse’s chances of winning and therefore, how much a horse has to pay to win in order to make money on such bets in the long run. There are many more people, perhaps millions around the world, trying to make money betting on horse races depending upon luck or some other system to be a winner.

On the other hand, the ones who depend upon luck invest nothing but money and very little time

The History Of Racquetball – InfoBarrel

gambling, Sport, Sport gambling

Solidified the rules and created the very first official rule book. Joe named this sport, ‘Paddle Rackets’ which eventually was renamed ‘Racquetball’ by professional tennis player Bob McInerny . Open championships in Memphis, Tennessee is one of the few tournaments that gets air time.

Today Racquetball has not been growing like it was in the 1970s and 1980s but the fan base stays strong with an estimated 5.6 million players.

Racquetball was originally created by a man named Joe Sobek. Racquetball is not televised very frequently as it is difficult to film and keep track of the ball moving at high speeds. Sobek continued promoting the sport which was easy for most to pickup since over 40,000 handball courts exist across America.

. Soon afterwards in 1969 Robert W. When Racquetball is televised, the U.S. Finally, in 2003, the USRA changed their name for the final time to mimic other Olympic sports associations and coined themselves United States Racquetball (USAR).

There are currently three associations that handle professional games.

In 1952 Joe founded the IPRA, The International Paddler’s Racquets Association. Kendler created the IRA, The International Racquetball Association. Eventually the IRA became the American Amateur Racquetball Association which changed its name again in the late 1990s to the United States Racquetball Association. In 1973 Robert left the IRA and formed two other racquetball associations none of which have became as prominent as the IRA. Sobek played both tennis as well as handball but was looking for an extremely fast paced sport that mostly anybody could easily pickup without a large learning curve for the rules. Joe came up with the sport at the Greenwhich YMCA in a handball court. These associations are the International Racquetball Tournament, the Women’s Professional Racquetball Organization and the Legends Tour

Negative Effects of Gambling

Uncategorized

A recreational activity is supposed to be refreshing and relaxing, but something like gambling is contrary to the very purpose of recreation. They engage in gambling activities at the cost of their time with family and friends. This proves to be detrimental to their social and family life. According to the National Research Council, 10 to 17% of the children of problem gamblers have been abused and so have 25 to 50% of the partners of problems gamblers.

? According to a research by NCPG, 76 percent of problem gamblers are likely to have a major depressive disorder.

? Over time, the practice of gambling starts becoming a habit and begins to have damaging effects at psychological, physical, and social levels. The stress of risking huge amounts of money or the frustration after losing it can increase the tendency of abuse in gamblers. It causes a decline in his/her work performance, thus hampering his career.

? An Austrian study said that around 1 in 5 suicidal patients had a gambling problem.

? The addiction to gambling can leave one in bankruptcy. Betting is a mentally taxing activity, and as one goes on risking more and more money, anxiety starts building.

? As gambling leads to increased criminal activities, in a way, gamblers add to the burden on prisons and the legal system.

Gambling refers to the betting of money on an event with an uncertain outcome, with the intent of winning additional wealth. Their mental state can even lead to suicidal tendencies.

? Gambling at the cost of one’s job results in a decline in the quality of his professional life. To add to the so-called merry atmosphere, gamblers often smoke or drink while playing.

? Addiction to gambling has been linked with substance abuse. The addiction leads people to continue with gambling irrespective of whether they earn or lose in the deal. Card games, coin tossing, and dice-based games are some non-casino based forms of gambling. Due to lost mental peace, they may ill-treat their spouse and children. The greed never ends and they keep betting more and more. The National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPG) describes this type of gambling behavior as problem gambling.

? The costs of treating compulsive gamblers are huge. Over time, it becomes a habit, and eventually an obsession that can’t be overcome. The effect is similar to that of having a drug or a drink, which is why gambling changes one’s mental state and mood.
