After the NFL owners’ meeting in Houston, the league let the Rams relocate to L.A. for the 2016 NFL season.

Professional football fans in Los Angeles were waiting for sports scores news to report the Rams relocate to L.A. for 22 years. It was after the 1994 season that the franchise had moved to St. Louis. They arrived to win a Super Bowl in 1999, than to fall back to mediocrity.

Their aging stadium left two choices for them. To seek for possibilities to build a new stadium, or to get away. The city of St. Louis was eager to avoid the Rams relocate to L.A. They offered to build a $1.1 billion riverside stadium, next to the Mississippi. However, Stan Kroenke, who became full owner of the franchise in 2010, was known to be committed to the Rams relocate to L.A. for long.

The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders also submitted relocation applications to the league last year. There was plan ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ with different stadium scenarios. Plan ‘C’ has convinced the NFL owners eventually, gambling news report. According to that, the Rams relocate to L.A. immediately for the 2016 season. They will play in their own stadium in Inglewood by 2019. The San Diego Chargers have the opportunity to join them and share the facility from 2019. If they turn down the offer, the Oakland Raiders can opt to become the next Los Angeles NFL franchise.

However, it seems that the Raiders are now committed to stay in Oakland and build a new stadium there. Currently they share the O.co Coliseum with the Oakland Athletics baseball franchise. However, the city has a plan for the new stadium and the NFL is also willing to contribute $100 million to the project. This also goes for the Chargers, if they decide to remain in San Diego and build a new stadium there. Chargers owner Dean Spanos couldn’t say whether he intended to take the opportunity to move the franchise to Inglewood or not. He said, “I will be working over the next several weeks to explore these options that we have now created for ourselves to determine the best path forward for the Chargers.”

ESPN: Rams’ relocating to L.A. leaves St. Louis a two-time NFL loser

Stan Kroenke will have to pay a $550 million relocation fee to the league before the Rams relocate to L.A. He is expected to pay the amount in one sum. With the Rams relocate to L.A., the city of St. Louis loses an NFL franchise for the second time in league history. The Cardinals left St. Louis in 1988 for Phoenix, Arizona, as many experts of gambling facts know.

The last NFL relocation happened in 1997. Then the Houston Oilers left Texas for Nashville, Tennessee. It was expected that Los Angeles would get an NFL franchise, when the decision was made about an expansion team in 1999. However, the city of Los Angeles were unable to agree on the stadium with the league. Therefore the expansion team went to Houston and the Texans joined the NFL as the 32nd team in 2002.

Manning over 70,000 Yards in Dramatic Win

Sep 18, 2015

“Peyton Manning over 70,000 yards, the second QB after Brett Favre” was the big news Thursday night before the Broncos’ last minute comeback against the Chiefs.

Roughly a year ago, Manning left the 500-TD mark behind. He broke Brett Favre’s NFL record of 508 touchdown passes soon after, as experts of gambling facts might remember. Now, Manning over 70,000 yards in passing in his career and on his way to brake another record of Favre, namely the all-time record of 71,838 passing yards. And it is noteworthy that reaching the latest milestone came in a game, where the Broncos offense was far from the most important unit on the field.

The Kansas City Chiefs hosted the Denver Broncos on Thursday night in a tight division matchup. The opening game of the second round of the 2015 NFL season was also a heavy defensive battle. The Chiefs dominated Manning and co. for most part of the game, also contributing with a pick-six. This was the second consecutive game with an interception return TD from one of Manning’s passes.

NFL.com: Broncos score two last-minute TDs to stun Chiefs

 
The visitors #D once again emerged as a dominant gang, pretty much winning the game. They harassed Alex Smith with two interceptions and forced two Jamaal Charles fumbles. Though the Chiefs running back had a 125-yard game with a TD, he lost a fumble in the red zone and another one in the last minute. The latter came through Brandon Marshall when the score was tied and was returned for a touchdown by Broncos corner Bradley Roby making it 31–24.

That was just enough to win the game for the Broncos and it came five seconds after Peyton Manning found Emmanuel Sanders in the Kansas end zone for a 19-yard touchdown. Though the Denver QB registered 3 TD-passes and 256 passing yards, and provided the “Manning over 70,000 yards” headlines for sports scores news, he produced another shaky performance.

However, it is remarkable that Manning was instrumental once again when the game was on the line, leading the Broncos offense in a fourth-quarter scoring drive. He was at his best from the shotgun when Denver went no-huddle and this might be a glimpse of things to come from the 39-year-old this term.

With an outstanding defensive unit on the board, which made a statement in an important division game, Manning doesn’t have to carry the team on his shoulders. It seems that he only needs to make his magic in the decisive moments to win most of the games. All this could be enough for another division title this year.

ESPN: Peyton Manning over 70,000 yards

 
The game that brought the “Manning over 70,000 yards” online mobile news, also was the second in a row when the former Colt led the Broncos to a key scoring drive in the fourth quarter. He said afterwards, “To be able to win two games in this fashion, you can always refer back to games like this later on in this season. These are obviously great times to play football.”

He added, “To win a division game on the road, a great atmosphere, this place is always a great place to play football, and the crowd was rocking, they were into it. … Yeah, I think this is one that you always remember, certainly the way it ended.”

 

The last time when a team was able to turn the game around with two touchdowns in the last minute happened 37 years ago. Manning was only two years of age, when his father, Archie Manning lost in an NFC West division game in similar fashion. The New Orleans Saints went down against the Atlanta Falcons 20-17 after Haskel Stanback scored with 57 seconds to go and Alfred Jackson received a TD-pass from Steve Bartkowski with 10 seconds from the end of regulation.

So, Manning over 70,000 yards and the Broncos with two wins out of two. They will play at Detroit next week, who are 2.20 (6/5) underdogs at Betway Sportsbook against the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC North matchup this Sunday.

Aldon Smith Released by 49ers

Aug 08, 2015
Aldon Smith released from San Francisco 49ers

Another arrest for driving under influence saw Aldon Smith released by the San Francisco 49ers. This was the star linebacker’s fifth arrest in three years.

San Francisco 49ers defender Aldon Smith was arrested on Thursday for suspected hit and run and driving under the influence. He was bailed out, but the next day came the news reporting Aldon Smith released by the 49ers. We knew that the San Francisco NFL franchise has some problems. They replaced head coach Jim Harbaugh with Jim Tonsula after last season, and also had a bunch of key players departing or retiring. They are outsiders to win the NFC West with odds of 11.00 (10/1) at Bet365.

But now we also know that Aldon Smith also has serious problems. With a history like his, it will be enormously hard to find a way back to the NFL. He has to fix his life first. But before that, he has to acknowledge that he has a problem and he needs help.

NYTimes.com: 49ers Release Star Defender Aldon Smith, Adding to Their Recent Turmoil

 
After a troublesome offseason for the San Francisco 49ers came the news about Aldon Smith released by the California NFL franchise. The former Pro Bowl defender was arrested on Friday. He was accused with hit and run, driving under the influence and vandalism, online mobile news report.

 


The 49ers finished the 2014 NFL season with a disappointing 8-8. After that head coach Jim Harbaugh left the franchise and a group of key players also departed or retired. Now it was the star linebacker’s turn, as the headlines “Aldon Smith Released by the San Francisco 49ers” appeared in the media.

Smith had several troubles off the field recently. The NFL suspended him for nine games last year for violating the league’s policy on substance abuse and personal conduct. More than a year ago he had an airport incident, appeared to be claiming that he was carrying a bomb. In 2013 he was arrested for DUI charges, which led to a five-game suspension.

49ers.com: Jim Tomsula Explains Decision to Release Aldon Smith

 
New San Francisco head coach Jim Tomsula commented the move that saw Aldon Smith released from the 49ers organization in a press conference. Star linebacker Smith was arrested on Thursday, gambling news reported. Smith had a meeting with the head coach and general manager Trent Baalke before they made the call.

Tomsula said, “I think you’re all aware, the San Francisco 49ers released Aldon Smith today. It’s a sad day. This is a day that doesn’t have anything to do with football. Although he won’t will be playing football for the San Francisco 49ers, he will be supported, and he will be helped.”

He added, “He won’t have to walk this path alone. “We’re not worried about football. It has nothing to do with football. If one person out there reads this, and you’re struggling, get help. Go get it. You’re worth it. There’s a value in every human being. Get the help. You don’t have to walk alone.”

Tomsula also spoke about the locker room’s reaction to the news reported Smith’s arrest. He said, “It was sadness, that’s what it was, sadness for a guy, a person. We care about that guy. Deeply.”

Sports.Yahoo.com: Will Aldon Smith get another chance in the NFL? It’s unclear right now

 
The news about Aldon Smith released by San Francisco came hardly a surprise for those who follow NFL gambling facts. Smith registered five of the 49ers’ 12 arrests in the last three years. He also refused to claim responsibility for his troubles. It seems that though he might be an amazingly talented young player, he is unfortunately not capable of pulling his life together.

He also denied that he made a mistake on Thursday after his latest arrest came. And speaking with the team, he denied that he was responsible for his off the field problems. Maybe this was what got Aldon Smith released by the 49ers. He had had his chances, yet failed to improve his behavior or to ask for help. The franchise did what they had to do.

New 49ers coach Jim Tonsula insisted that he and the organization will be there to help Smith. But first of all, Smith has to acknowledge that he needs help. Without doing that and working for his life to be fixed, there is no way back to the NFL. Aldon Smith released by the 49ers – out of the NFL for good, perhaps.

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson Would Play Both Baseball and Football

Jul 04, 2015

Russell Wilson has emerged as a superstar in the NFL so quickly, that he is still being paid according to his rookie contract that grants him a USD 1.5 million for his final year. Seattle Seahawks want to agree on a long-term contract with him, but at the same time they obviously want to make a bargain as well. This would be tough though, as both Wilson and his agent Mark Rodgers argue that with his superb record, the 26-year-old quarterback deserves at least the amount that Aaron Rodgers, the top earner of the league gets, which is USD 110 million for five years.

NFL.com: Russell Wilson would consider both football, baseball

Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl winning quarterback Russell Wilson appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, where he was speaking about his contract situation as well as possibly pursuing a baseball career, online gambling news report.

Wilson is obviously underpaid with his USD 1.5 million for his final year of his rookie contract, however it is speculated that he wants to be the best paid player in the NFL with USD 25 million per annum. When a question about this came up, Wilson basically refused to answer. He said, “I just want to paid based off my play. It will all work out in the end. We’ll figure it out.”

When the talk show host questioned him about whether he tried himself out playing for the Mariners in the MLB, if his rights would be acquired by the Seattle baseball franchise from the Texas Rangers, he admitted, that he would consider the opportunity. Many of those who follow sports scores are waiting for the moment when that happens badly.

CBSSports.com: Agent: It’s about winning and Russell Wilson does that ‘very, very well’

Russell Wilson is known for long as someone who refuses to give too much information for the media. Okay, not the way like Marshawn Lynch does it, but he is considered as a boring interviewee by media workers hanging out around the NFL. Yet, he and his agent Mark Rodgers are very actively commenting his contract status.

Rodgers said recently, “With Russell, he’s unique, so let the debate begin. He’s unconventional in size. People argue that he’s a game manager or say it’s the defense or Marshawn Lynch — or all of the above. I listen and take all that into account. At the end of the day, it’s about winning and what he’s asked to do and he does it very, very well.”

Wilson’s win-loss record is impressive with 42-14, and as the quarterback’s job is to win the games, NFL stars playing in that position tend to use it as leverage when discussing contracts. The NFL is pretty much about passing after all, as everyone knows, who follow major league’s live sports results, and without a good passer, teams are virtually useless.

fantasypros.com: Fantasy Impact: Russell Wilson’s Contract Year

Russell Wilson is about to become a free agent at the end of next season, and this is very uncommon in the NFL with franchise quarterbacks. Therefore the Seattle Seahawks will do almost everything to sign him for long. However, Wilson and his agent, Mark Rodgers want virtually everything, as their goal is to make the 26-year-old signal caller the highest paid player in the league.

That title is occupied by Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers at the moment, who signed a five-year deal worth of USD 110 million in 2013. This means that Wilson and Rodgers are looking for a USD 25 million per year deal, which is quite a big jump from the USD 1.5 million per annum that the rookie contract grants Wilson for its final year.
He is obviously underpaid, as there are 40 quarterbacks in the NFL, who make more than him, according to gambling facts, while less than a handful of those can match Wilson’s achievements, who led the Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl victory in 2013-2014 and to another final a year later.

Court Puts New Jersey Sports Betting on Hold

Nov 21, 2014
Dennis Drazin New Jersey  sportsbetting

Dennis Drazin is confident about NJ sports betting

A federal judge intervened to temporarily block New Jersey’s plans to allow sports betting at the state’s racetrack and casinos.

State lawmakers have been trying to find ways to bring sports betting to New Jersey for years, but it looks like all attempts are destined to fail. A few weeks ago, officials passed a bill allowing licensed casinos and racetracks to accept wagers.

After Governor Chris Christie signed the document into law and Monmouth Park said it was ready to start taking bets last Sunday, professional sports leagues challenged the decision in court, asking the judge to issue a temporary restraining order to prevent this from happening.

U.S. District Judge Michael Shipp decided to grant the request made by the National Football League, the National Collegiate Athletic Association and other sports groups, but did not rule on the merits of the issue yet. A full hearing will be scheduled in the future.

A spokesman for Christie emphasized that the restraining order is temporary and added: “We continue to have full confidence in the strength and appropriateness of our position as we move forward in the litigation.”

USA Today: Judge: New Jersey can’t launch sports betting

Latest gambling news announce that a federal judge decided not to allow casinos and racetracks in New Jersey to start taking sports bets. In his ruling late Friday, US District Court Judge Michael Shipp put in place a temporary restraining order to prevent state operators from offering such services last week.

Monmouth Park was planning on giving its bookmaking operations a test run on Sunday, when it would have accepted bets on NFL games, but the court said Governor Chris Christie can’t launch sports betting in the state for now.

Monmouth Park officials were expecting about 10,000 people to rush to the track this Sunday to bet on Jets-Bills, Eagles-Cardinals, as well as on other NFL games. The track was going to open as early as 7 am, in order to allow visitors to place wagers on the Lions-Falcons game played in London at 9:30 am E.T.

But the NFL and other American sports leagues have filed a complaint asking the judge to stop state operators from taking bets immediately, invoking a 1992 federal law restricting sports betting to Nevada, Delaware, Oregon, and Montana.

A final decision will be made only after a full hearing, but for now the judge has issued a restraining order stopping Monmouth Park from going ahead with its plans. Attorneys representing the racetrack have argued that the business won’t survive without this new source of revenue.

NESN: Judge Grants Leagues’ Request, Stops N.J. Sports Betting Temporarily

Following a request from four major professional sports leagues and the NCAA, a federal judge issued a restraining order preventing New Jersey operators from taking sports bets for now. The request was made by the NFL, the NBA, the NHL, Major League Baseball and the NCAA, who went to court over a new bill signed by Governor Chris Christie, allowing casinos and racetracks in the state to offer betting services.

Under current gambling laws, Nevada is the only state allowed to offer betting on individual games at local bookmakers. Delaware also offers multi-game parlay pools, requiring players to pick several games correctly before winning any money.

“More legal gambling leads to more total gambling, which in turns leads to an increased incentive to fix plaintiffs’ matches,” Shipp said in court last Friday, adding that sports betting in New Jersey “would engender the same ills” that lawmakers sought to combat when they came up with the 1992 federal law.

Attorneys representing the sports organizations have argued that the leagues would suffer irreparable harm if such offers were available in the state. The lawsuit will proceed and the court will schedule a full hearing, but Shipp said a temporary restraining order was necessary to make sure that the matter is properly debated in court first.

Wall Street Journal: Judge Blocks Bid to Legalize Sports Betting in New Jersey

A previous attempt to overturn the sports betting ban and allow New Jersey players to bet on sports failed, and officials are not sure what will happen next. For now, Nevada continues to remain the only state where sports betting is fully legal. Delaware has a few similar operations, but the state only offers multi-game parlay pools.

While Atlantic City casinos said they would wait for the judge’s decision before starting any bookmaking operations, Monmouth Park Racetrack had originally planned to begin sports betting this weekend. The venue’s plans were put on hold by the restraining order.

Dennis Drazin, the operator of Monmouth Park, wrote in a recent statement: “While we are disappointed not to be able to start this Sunday, we are confident that sports betting will be coming to New Jersey in the very near future.”

While preventing the racetrack from starting its new operations, Judge Shipp also requested the five plaintiffs to put up a $1.7 million bond, to cover New Jersey’s potential revenue losses should the state eventually win the argument. The judge also said the temporary restraining order only applies to sports scores at events run by the four leagues and the NCAA.

NJ Preparing for another Legal Battle over Sports Betting in the State

Oct 22, 2014
NJ professional sports leagues seeking a temporary injunction to stop local gambling venues from opening sportsbooks

NJ professional sports leagues against gambling venues opening sportsbooks

New Jersey residents might have to wait a while longer before they can place bets on sports and horse races in the state.

With Governor Chris Christie approving a new gambling bill and rumors of the Taj Mahal closing later in November, New Jersey continues to be at the centre of attention in the US. At the end of last week, state authorities gave casinos and racetracks the green light to start accepting bets, but professional sports leagues have challenged the decision in court.

Monmouth Park is prepared to start taking bets at the racetrack this Sunday, but punters might have to wait a while longer because the country’s four professional sports leagues and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) have filed a lawsuit on Monday, seeking a temporary injunction to stop local gambling venues from opening sports books.

On the other hand, industry representatives argue that allowing sports betting in the state could help thousands of former Atlantic City casino employees find a new job.

NY Times: Sports Betting in New Jersey Is Challenged

For a while now, New Jersey has been trying to come up with ways to circumvent a 1992 federal law banning state regulators from handing out sports betting licenses. Last week, an important step has been taken in that direction after Governor Chris Christie signed the new gambling law partially repealing the statewide sports wagering ban. But then came the bad news: professional leagues are seeking an injunction from Judge Michael A. Shipp of Federal District Court.

New Jersey’s first sports book is schedules to have a soft opening this Sunday at Monmouth Park. The racetrack’s operators said they’re planning to have 10 tellers take bets, only on the National Football League for now, all by hand. Both the track’s managers and state leaders expect thousands of people lining up to place their bets on football Sundays.

Dennis Drazin, a legal adviser for Monmouth Park, told reporters: “As we speak, we are geared up to start taking bets.” Lawyers representing the NCAA, the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League and the Office of the Commissioner of Baseball declined to make any comments at this point.

The challenge argues that New Jersey has tried this trick three years ago, when attempts to legalize gambling on amateur and professional sports failed. “Because this effort is no more lawful than New Jersey’s past ones, it, too, should be enjoined,” lawyers wrote in the complaint.

On the other hand, State Senator Raymond J. Lesniak said: “I have a hard time believing that a judge will determine that the leagues can prove they can be irreparably damaged by Monmouth racetrack’s taking bets, when people are betting every single day legally in Nevada,” adding that sports associations are looking to secure a monopoly.

USA Today: NFL, other leagues move to stop N.J. sports betting plan

In the complained filed earlier this week, the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and the NCAA said New Jersey was “in clear and flagrant violation of federal law.” Attorneys representing the leagues are expected to ask the judge for a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction, to prevent local businesses from taking bets.

According to track consultant Dennis Drazin, Monmouth Park is planning to take bets on sports scores as early as October 26, during the Jets-Bills game, as well as for other NFL match-ups scheduled for Sunday. The operator is likely to add a $100 bet limit for the first day. Records will initially be kept by hand, and the track expects 5,000 customers to rush to the bookies this Sunday.

“We won’t be able to have everything set up electronically for 3 or 4 weeks,” Drazin explained. “My own take on this is the people have been clamoring for this for so long that we want to introduce them to it even if you can’t do it full scale just yet.’”

Legal analysts said it’s hard to predict if all this will actually happen on Sunday.

“The leagues loaded up their complaint with buzzwords to paint a picture of immediate and irreparable harm to the plaintiffs if bets start being taken, and they’ve won injunctive relief in the past,” gaming attorney Christopher Soriano said.

According to Drazin, the track could earn as much as $1 billion per year from sports betting, giving the state’s gambling industry a much needed boost.

Philadelphia Business Journal: Hundreds file for unemployment after casino closures

Atlantic City saw its last wave of casino workers filing for unemployment at the beginning of September, following the closure of two casinos over Labor Day weekend. More than 5,000 employees lost their jobs in the process.

An assistance center was set up at the Atlantic City Convention Center, and officials from the state Department of Labor and union representatives from Local 54 of Unite-HERE were there to offer them help in filing for unemployment. They were also given information on how to sign up for health insurance.

“We’re working every day to create solutions,” Mayor Don Guardian told reporters. “As a city that cares about its residents first, we want you to know what steps we’re taking to assist in transitioning individuals losing jobs.”

Officials added that laid-off workers would be getting all the necessary training “to help ensure [they] have a smooth, quick transition to new employment.”

Job-training initiatives will be held at the Atlantic Cape Community College, aiming to train up to 1,200 employees every year. Officials plan to open a job placement center by October, assisting all Atlantic City residents.

Atlantic City started the year with 12 casinos, but their number has dropped to just eight by mid-September.

Boxer and Notorious Punter Floyd Mayweather Wins Two Major Bets

Oct 10, 2014
Mayweathear  bet on the Colts vs. Seahawks

Mr. Mayweathear knows sportsbetting

Pro boxer Floyd Mayweather flaunts his winnings on Instagram, after betting large amounts of money on the Seahawks and the Colts.

Floyd Mayweather is certainly one of the luckiest punters out there. The man has won $105 million over the past year by betting on sports scores. He began the week by adding almost $1 million to his total winnings, after placing a lot of money on the Seahawks and on the Colts.

The professional boxer took the opportunity to show off his latest winnings on social media after the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Washington Redskins 27-17 in a messy game with a total of 16 penalties. A photo of Mayweathear’s lucky betting ticket was posted on Instagram.

“I bet $220,000.00 on the World Champion Seattle Seahawks (Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman) and walked away with $420,000.00,” the boxer wrote.

CBS Sports: Floyd Mayweather wins $200K betting Seahawks on Monday night

Mayweather came dangerously close to losing this wager. If it hadn’t been for Russell Wilson’s ridiculous play, the boxer’s bet would have most likely ended up in a push, where he wouldn’t have won (nor lost) anything.

A late move pushed the score to 27-17 instead of 24-17, which wouldn’t have turned out so great for Mayweather. And the Seahawks got a late field goal after Wilson passed to Marshawn Lynch. This was the pass that helped the boxer win the wager.

A notorious punter well-known for betting huge amounts of money – and scoring even larger prizes – had also posted a betting slip proving that he won $685,714 by putting money on the Colts in Week 3. That wager happened three weeks ago, when the Colts played against the Jaguars.

Washington Post: Redskins-Seahawks best and worst

The Washington Post has compiled a “best and worst moments” article from the game on Monday night, where the Redskins lost 27-17 to the Seahawks at FedEx Field.

Among the best moments of the game, the newspaper highlighted the game-clincher in the fourth quarter, when Russell Wilson was pursued by three defenders and Washington’s running backs carried 15 times for 28 yards. Ryan Kerrigan is mentioned as best defender, and Kirk Cousins’ 60-yard pass to DeSean Jackson is said to be the best long pass play.

The worst record in prime time goes to the Redskins. Since Joe Gibbs retired the second time, the Redskins are 3-17 in prime-time games, the newspaper argues. It also mentions the team’s four losses as “worst stats”. That’s how many losses the Eagles, Cowboys and Giants have, combined.

There’s a “worst challenge success rate” award too, which goes out to Jay Gruden who is now 0 for 5 in challenges as an NFL head coach.

Daily News: Floyd Mayweather, Jr. earns $1.8 million betting on Colts, Seahawks

In other recent gambling news, Floyd Mayweather added another $1.8 million to his fortune, which is estimated at $280 million. The boxing champion placed a wager on the Indianapolis Colts and Seattle Seahawks to win by more than seven points and won.

“I bet $720,000.00 and I walked away with $1,405,714.28. When you’re betting on Andrew, it’s never Luck,” he wrote on Instagram, where he attached a photo of a ticket stub dated 9-21-14. That was the day when the Colts beat the Jacksonville Jaguars by 44-17.

Mayweather was recently mentioned among the top-earning athletes, on a list put together by Forbes Magazine. He made $105 million in his last two fights alone. The boxer never misses a chance to flaunt his wealthy lifestyle in public, and he usually does it through Instagram.

Those who follow him know that he frequently posts pictures of cash, although his favorite “prizes” often include expensive watches, cars or even women.

Independent: Super Bowl 2014: Floyd Mayweather denies placing $10.4m bet on the Denver Broncos after Seattle Seahawks crushing win

Back in February, it was rumored that Floyd Mayweather Jr had lost $10.4 million by betting on the Denver Broncos in an NFL match where the team was crushed by the Seattle Seahawks. The boxer later denied these rumors, claiming that ne never even put money on the Super Bowl match.

“For the record, I did not bet $10 million on the Broncos. As a matter of fact, I didn’t bet all,” he wrote on Instagram. “I can’t control what rumors that are put out there. Good or bad publicity keeps me relevant. The only thing I would bet $10 million on is myself. From the looks of my record, I’m a guaranteed win.”

During the previous week, pictures had emerged on social media websites showing that the athlete had placed a staggering amount of money on the Broncos. It was said that he had bet on the Peyton Manning-led team to win the season showcase.

It was then revealed that the picture had been originally posted in 2012. This information only supported Mayweather’s claims that no bet was ever made.

How do you read NFL odds?

Jun 14, 2010
NFL Football Odds

The question “How do you read NFL football odds?” can be answered in two different ways. One response would answer to the nuts and bolts of the question, explaining those actual slates of numbers. The other would be to attempt to explain, as we do in the United States, the deeper meaning in those numbers the online bookmakers provide.

Considering a few relevant examples will help us consider both questions.

All lines except for those on pointspread (or handicap) bets may be presented in any of three ways: fractional, decimal and American. Fractional is the classic 3/1 format; decimal format shows you the payout based on 1 unit out to two decimal points, so 3.00 for the previous example; American style shows the payout on 100 units, so the current example would be +300 in this format.

The very basic proposition bet in all of NFL betting is of course wagering on the Super Bowl winner. Currently last year’s finalists, the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints, are the favorites to win Super Bowl XLV at 8/1 (8.00, +800) and 9/1 (9.00, +900), respectively, by PaddyPower bookmakers.

How do you read these particular odds? These numbers mean simply, “It’s too far in advance of the season, which begins in September, to make a realistic call so we’re going with the default choices.” You can also wager on each division winner and the conference winners at most sports betting websites, but such bets in June are strictly for loyalists.

The most popular NFL bets week to week are the pointspread and over/under lines. These are represented by a plus or minus followed with a number of points. The favorite always receives a negative number, the underdog is positive. This bet works the same way as a handicap in golf, so taking the underdog means adds points to the result of the game; in a close game, the underdog often “wins” at the bookmaker.

Over/under lines represent what the oddsmaker believes will be the total number of points scored by both teams in the game. Pick the over if you think the final score will add up to more than the bookmaker’s line, under for less.

At BetUS, odds are actually already posted for week one in the NFL. In the Oakland Raiders-Tennessee Titans game, the Oakland Raiders are the underdog with a +7 pointspread and there’s an over/under of 41 points.

How do you read these NFL football odds? Well, Oakland at +7 means the bookies figure the Raiders to be just as awful as they have been for seven seasons now, while the 41 over/under indicates that this game will be about as exciting as most fans would expect. You can bet on it.

Sports Gambling Bid Rejected by High Court in Delaware

May 04, 2010
Football Stamp

Legislation is being pushed all over the United States in favor of all kinds of gambling in order to raise state revenues. Delaware is one state currently in hot pursuit of the industry, but a recent bid for sports gambling was just rejected by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Bloomberg Business Week: Delaware Sports Gambling Bid Rejected by High Court

The U.S. Supreme Court refused to give Delaware broader authority to sponsor sports gambling, and left intact a ruling that allows multi-game bets on National Football League contests while barring other wagers.

The justices rejected an appeal by Delaware Governor Jack Markell, whose state is 1 of just 4 that can offer sports gambling under a 1992 federal law. The rebuff means Delaware can only offer 1 aspect of its sports-wagering plan — parlay betting on 3 or more NFL games. Markell wanted to offer single-game betting as well as wagering on other sports.

Nevada is the only state that allows widespread sports gambling.

The Assosciated Press: High court turns down Delaware over sports betting

The U.S. Supreme Court rejected a Delaware appeal which sought to expand its sports betting lottery beyond professional football on Monday. Justices denied Delaware’s petition for judicial review without comment, and left limits on sports betting in Delaware to multi-game, or parlay, bets on NFL games.

The court declared that the state’s new sports betting lottery must be similar to the betting scheme used in a failed 1976 NFL lottery which allowed Delaware to be 1 of only 4 states to receive exemptions from the federal ban.

Despite losing the appeal, Delaware still maintains a competitive gambling advantage over neighboring states by being the only state east of the Rocky Mountains in which wagering on the NFL is legal.

Reuters: Supreme court rejects Delaware sports betting appeal

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a Delaware appeal that argued the state should be allowed to offer a new sports betting lottery to generate revenue to help ease its record budget deficit. The justices let stand a 1992 federal ruling by a U.S. appeals court that prohibits Delaware from offering betting on individual games in all major sports, without comment.

The North American professional leagues for baseball, basketball, football and hockey and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) all argued that Delaware’s sports lottery plan violated the 1992 law.

The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, prohibits betting on sports. Exceptions were granted to Delaware, Nevada, Montana and Oregon because they previously ran sports betting operations.

Delaware had expected at least an estimated $17 million in revenues from the sports betting plan in the 2010 fiscal year to help close the state’s budget deficit.

Attorneys for the professional sports leagues and the NCAA told the Supreme Court the appeal should be rejected. They said the estimated $17 million in sports gambling revenue represented a trivial percentage of the state’s $3.1 billion budget.
