Real Madrid tied Villarreal on Wednesday at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu and they were to make a trip to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria island in hopes of clinching all 3 points against the Yellows. The home team, however, disagreed with the intentions of Los Blancos and fought hard in order to crush the Royal dreams. And they succeeded! Zidane’s men took the lead twice in the game but Las Palmas managed to equalize on both occasions, setting the final result at 2-2.
Sports scores news and online sportsbooks of course did not expect such a result: basically everyone expected Real Madrid to shine. It doesn’t happen very often that they lose points in 2 consecutive league games. However, they did so this time and their confident lead over Barcleona, which could have risen up to 5 points, decreased to 1 point only, although they still lead La Liga. After losing 4 points in 4 days against 2 yellow teams, they will play at Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday night against Die Schwarzgelben. Good luck against the other Yellows!
Meanwhile, Barcelona tied Atletico de Madrid in the midweek round of La Liga which meant they couldn’t decrease their disadvantage over Los Merengues at that point. However, like many online betting sites in Spain predicted, Barca were not capable of losing points in 2 games in a row, unlike their ancient rivals. They played at Sporting Gijón’s home and trashed their opponent by 0-5.
Premier League was full of great matches this weekend, let’s start with the biggest and most passionate derby in our championship review: Arsenal v Chelsea. The encounter was expected to be tight despite the fact that Chelsea are not even close to be at their best so far. They are only 8th in the league with their 10 points, however, they are likely to be in the top 6 at least by the end of the season.
Arsenal are rather in a good form, they won 4 out of 6 league games they had so far this season. And they didn’t let their fans down in the city derby: Sanchez, Walcott and Özil scored for the Gunners, setting the final result at 3-0. Quite a convincing performance, one which they haven’t really managed to achieve against Chelsea in the past few seasons. Arsenal are third in Premier League with 13 points thanks to this win.
Manchester City played against Swansea away. Pep Guardiola’s men keep winning so far: 6/6, 100%, 18 points, terrific way to start a season. Of course they lead the league. A bit of a surprise that Tottenham are second with 14 points. These two are the only unbeaten teams in the Premier League. Spur seized a 1-2 victory in Middlesbrogouh.
Another match that was highly expected by online gambling news was the derby between maybe the most prestigious English club Manchester United and last season’s champions Leicester City. However, the game ended up being a rather one-sided one: Mourinho’s Red Devils won the first half by 4-0. The second half was only played because it was obligatory, but nothing exciting happened then, except for that one goal that Leicester’s Demarai Gray scored, ending the match at 4-1. United came up to the 6th position with this triumph over last season’s odds upsetting heroes.
Bundesliga is not the most exciting one of domestic leagues in the past few years. Nobody even knows when the last time it actually has been exciting was. Bayern Munich has been dominating the league and this year doesn’t seem to be any different either. They won 5 out of 5 games so far and are already 3 points ahead of Borussia Dortmund. However, they almost managed to lose 2 points against HSV: Kimmich ended up scoring the winning and only goal of the game in the 88th minute.
Borussia Dortmund, on the other has, continues playing in a convincing form before hosting Real Madrid. The Black and Yellow side hosted Freiburg on Friday and left no questions: Aubameyang took the lead for them and Piszczek scored the second. Philipp brought back hopes for the away side but Guerrero, who came in as a substitute, scored another for BVB in the 91st minute, ending the match at 3-1.
Hertha Berlin started the season in an incredible form and won 3 out of their first 3 league games, surprising all Bundesliga betting tips at the time. However, they met Bayern Munich in the 4th round who ended their terrific series of triumph. In the fifth round on Saturday, they were hosted by Eintracht Frankfurt and played a fantastic game: HBSC took the lead but Frankfurt were leading 2-1 at half time. By the 65th minute, Hertha were leading again by 2-3 and were wining until the very last second when Frankfurt’s Hector equalized and set the final result at 3-3.
Italian football is not living its best days every since the Calciopoli scandal. However, we can still regard Serie A as one of the best domestic leagues in European club football. Gambling news do so at least and the latest sports scores in the last few Champions League seasons also force us to take at least Juventus seriously. They stand out of all the other Italian clubs.
Yet they suffered against Palermo this weekend: they almost managed to hold a goalless draw Juve won eventually by 0-1 with an own goal. They have 15 points after 6 rounds thanks to this. The second best Italian team is Napoli, who hosted Chievo and won by 2-0. Napoli are the only unbeaten team in Serie A. They are only 1 point behind the Turin-based rivals…
The PokerStars RaiseIt challenge, as the name suggests, has been launched by one of the most popular online poker rooms in the world.
PokerStars RaiseIt challenge is the latest social media marketing tool for the popular online poker room. The marketing team has decided that upon the popularity of competitive football tournaments such as Euro 2016 or the Copa América which, surprising all sports scores news who had predicted a win for Argentina, just finished with Chile’s victory, the best idea is to start doing marketing somehow in connection with football. The PokerStars RaiseIt challenge is nothing but the perfect solution for executing this idea.The main rule to follow is to do something impressive with the ball. Of course it doesn’t matter if you shoot with perfect accuracy or you have amazing skills or you can keep the ball in the air so long that nobody else can repeat after you. The point is that you have to be better than the ones before you, and that you have to be better than yourself every time you try again. You have to Raise It to the top, you have to Raise Yourself to the top.That is the social media marketing campaign that was launched as soon as Neymar’s video was released. Neymar showed his skills in shooting as well as placing and bending the ball in his first video when he put the ball in the car’s back from in front of the car. Neymar invited Ronaldo Luiz Nazario da Lima to join the PokerStars RaiseIt challenge and top his video by an even better performance.
Luckily for all football fans, we didn’t have to wait too long for the reply of the Brazilian legend. The incredible and outstanding Ronaldo skills were proved instantly in his reply video. He put the ball down on the street just behind a cabriolet car. One of the greatest strikers of all time waited for the car to leave. After it was far enough, Ronaldo shot and the ball enters the car after dropping on the ground once. Declaring a winner at PokerStars RaiseIt challenge won’t be as easy as simple sports scores results.
Ronaldo definitely Raised the bar to a higher standard, but that didn’t mean that Nexmar should have given up already. One of the most famous member of Barcelona’s MSN has tried to raise Ronaldo’s skills by another video that required tons of technical skills: he held the ball on this back and let go of it, perfectly putting the ball into a bucket meters underneath him. Then he takes his second ball, keeps it in the air for a while and then puts it perfectly in another bucket, tens of meters away from him.
Neymar definitely managed to Raise It for now, however online gambling news are still hoping to see another terrific idea from Ronaldo. We are sure he didn’t just give up on his PokerStars RaiseIt challenge. Moreover, it would also be interesting to see other famous PokerStars representatives, such as Portuguese world star Cristiano Ronaldo, entering the PokerStars RaiseIt challenge, but other footballers and non-footballers are also free to join. All they need to do is do something amazing, record it, submit the video at the website and wait for others to like the performance.
FC Barcelona played against Sevilla on Sunday night. The Spanish Cup final game was held in Madrid at Estadio Vicente Calderón, stadium of Atlético de Madrid. Online gambling news predicted Barcelona to become Cope del Rey winners once again, however it was not at all too easy for them.
In fact, the game started like all finals should: 2 equal sides, fighting for eventual glory and success of winning the golden medal. Both teams created several chances, however they failed to score in every single situation they had.
But the game was about to become really one-sided just before the half time. It happened in the 36th minute. Sevilla created a clear cut chance and Gameiro was about to go one on one against ter Stegen. However, Mascherano did not let that happen: he grabbed Gamerio’s shirt, and to make sure he won’t be able to go on, he pulled him down to the ground with himself.
The Argentinian’s purpose was crystal clear and unquestionable, only one thing was going on in his mind: “I must stop him”. And so he did. Unfortunately for him and his team, he was not doing the right thing according to the official rule book of football, even though he was most probably doing the right thing according to his own heart and mind.
The referee didn’t show any mercy. He rewarded the central defender with an immediate red card, forcing Barca to play the remaining minutes of the game with only 10 men. The referee’s brave decision increased Sevilla’s chances to win, according to most live sports scores reporting sites.
Despite the fact that Sevilla were playing one man more than their rival in the Copa del Rey final, and that they were created lots of chances in those remaining 10 minutes of the first half, they couldn’t score any goals so the half time result remained 0-0.
The second half started the way it was expected: Luis Enrique made a substitute because of the red card. Ivan Rakitic left the field, Jeremy Mathieu took his place in hopes of strengthening the defensive line of the Blaugrana.
As expected, the Andalusian side controlled the midfield in the beginning of the second half. That was mostly made possibly thanks to Mascherano being sent off, obviously. The Sevillanos tried to put the ball into ter Stegen’s goal on several occasions. They even hit the post in the 51st minute, Banega’s shooting changed it’s place thanks to Piqué’s interception. Barca were lucky this time.
Just one minute passed by, but Barcelona received another set of horrible news: they led a counterattack in which Suarez put the high ball back to Messi. The world class forward wanted to head the ball but instead of the ball, he found a Sevilla defender’s head.
He was knocked out for a minute, but the even worse happened to his Uruguayan mate: Luis Suarez got injured because of his pass. He could come back and play for a few more minutes but then he couldn’t continue the game. Rafinha replaced Suarez in the 57th minute. Cameras caught Suarez crying for having to miss the remainings of the Spanish Cup final, being unable to help increase the number of Barca trophies this season.
Sevilla continued to control the classic derby, having created several chances mostly for Gameiro to score. However, they failed all of them, mostly because of the incredible performance shown by Gerard Piqué, who made many important tackles and interceptions when it was needed the most.
For the last 10 minutes of the game, the pace speeded up incredibly: A member of the Barca staff was sent off by the referee for saying something inappropriate in the 83rd minute after a controversial foul. 10 minutes later we could see another red card, but this time it was for the Andalusian side.
Neymar was about to go one on one against the keeper, Evar Banega didn’t let that happen: he tackled the Brazilian, without even trying to pretend he was going for the ball. Similar situation to Mascherano’s, the red card was merited in both cases. It was in the additional time of the first 90 minutes, which ended in 0-0. Extra Time.
At this point, the latest gambling news obviously believed that Barca trophies this season will be increased by 1 by the end of the 30 minutes extra time. They hold up against Sevilla by 0-man less, they are clear favourites on 10 v 10.
And no surprise has happened in the extra time. Barcelona, as expected, were playing as the dominant favourite of the Spanish Cup final. Sevilla managed to keep the goalless score for only 6 minutes in the extra time as in the 97th, Jordi Alba scored the Copa del Rey winning goal from Messi’s perfect assist.
The extra time was obviously dominated by Luis Enrique’s men. They created as many chances as Sevilla did; the only difference being that the Blaugrana were capable of putting the ball into the net. Twice, in fact: Messi assisted again in the 122th minute, Neymar scored this time and set the final result: 2-0 for Barcelona.
Barca trophies list this season has increased to 2 thanks to being Copa del Rey winner after triumphing La Liga as well. Barca win cup again, adding another one to their incredible amount of domestic triumphs. The Blaugrana have already been ahead of Real Madrid in regards of Copa del Rey wins by 28-19, however they still have a lots of La Liga titles to catch up with the Royal Club’s 32 golden medals.
La Liga winners in 2016 remain undecided as both Spanish giants seized victory. Atletico gave up on title-dreams.
The 37th round of La Liga had everything that football has to offer: easy wins for the title-favourites, exciting derby between a great team and another favourite and a surprising defeat for the third most likely La Liga Winners.
As usual in the last two rounds of La Liga, all 10 games are played at the same time in order to make things even more exciting as well as decrease the possibility of football championship cheats.
Before this round, the most popular to the question „Who is going to win La Liga?” was obviously FC Barcelona at all La Liga betting sites. The Blaugrana hosted city-rival Espanyol in the 37th round and it was expected to be a great battle between two ancient rivals.
However, Espanyol failed to stop Luiz Enrique’s men: the home-team easily trashed Espanyol by 5-0 at Camp Nou. Messi scored the first goal in the 8th minute and the half time result was 1-0. Espanyol gave up in the second half: Suarez scored a double in the 52nd and 61st minutes of the game, then Rafinha and Neymar also scored respectively in the 74th and 83rd minutes. We can see at sports scores news that the final result is 5-0 which means even better Barcelona odds to win La Liga.
The second favorite to win La Liga was Atletico de Madrid, according to most online gambling news in Spain. The capital-based team visited Valencia-based Levante. A team that has already relegated and are staying in the last position. It seemed to be the easiest possible game.
Especially that the Rojiblancos took the lead as early as the 2nd minute, thanks to a great goal by Torres. However, UD Levante managed to equalize in the 30th minute by Casadesus. In addition, they even managed to turn the game over as Rossi scored a winning goal in the 90th minute. Atletico seem to have a habit of letting go of titles in the last seconds of their important games… Because this defeat against Levante means their exit of the race for La Liga title.
The biggest derby and most difficult game out of the 3 title-candidates was unquestionably played by Real Madrid. The Royal Club hosted Valencia at Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. They were in the worst position before the games began as they were 1 point behind both Barcelona and Atletico, and their only hope in the last 2 rounds was both teams to fail. Atletico did so…
Real Madrid took the lead in the 26th minute with Cristiano Ronaldo’s terrific shot just outside the penalty area. The capital-side created many chances and Diego Alves was the only person who kept up the Valencian hopes of stealing points from Zidane’s men and hence their wish to win the league.
However, not even Alves managed to save his team in the 42nd minute, when Benzema scored his team’s second goal. He was offside at one occasion just before the goal, so the referee made a mistake in allowing this goal. The half time result was 2-0, and in order to make the game exciting again, Rodrigo scored in the 55th minute, 2-1.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo did not wish to give up on Real Madrid chances to win La Liga: He scored only 4 minutes later. André Gomes, who came on as a substitute, scored another goal for Valencia to change the result to 3-2, however, Rodrigo took away his team’s chances when he said something wrong for which he was immediately sent off by Fernandez Borbalan.
The referee was main character once again when he disallowed Danilo’s goal, which was a result of the great architecting work of Alvaro Arbeloa, who came on as a substitute. The home-grown player of Real Madrid played his very last game at Santiago Bernabéu as he will retire at the end of the season.
As we can see, live sports results see Atlético de Madrid out of the race for La Liga, while Real Madrid took over their place in the second position. A great miracle should happen for Real Madrid to win La Liga as Barca need to lose points in Granada in the last round while the Galacticos still need to win their last game. Which, by the way, would be their 12th league win in a row.

A possible move away from Chelsea has been the favourite rumour about Cesc Fabregas among sport reporters and journalists connected to the football world. The Spanish attacking midfielder is not happy in London according to the reports of these online gambling news, and he is ready to change environment according to these news.
After being key member in two London-based teams and also making it in his hometown in Barcelona, now UK gambling news believe that he might start a new life in Italy. Prestigious clubs compete for his signature as both Juventus and Inter want to stop the transfer rumours about Cesc Fabregas by making it obvious: the player belongs to them from now on, so nobody else has a chance to sign him – until the Spaniard gets upset with his situation again.

Head coach Guus Hiddink has talked in front of representatives of the media before his team’s upcoming Premier League encounter against Crystal Palace. The manager said he believed that the team will be able to gain back its confidence and start winning again so that they can reach a decent position in the end of the season.

Celta Vigo are doing great this season, that is one of the most obvious gambling facts that we can get from this season’s La Liga matches. They are laying in the 4th position in the league, 5 points behind Real Madrid, however they are only 1 point ahead of Villarreal who played 1 less game, so Celta might find themselves in the 5th position after that game is held. On the other hand, Málaga are only the 11th, but they are showing improving form. Malaga have not lost any of their last 5 league games. Maybe betting on draw for odds of 3.40 (12/5) at BetVictor Sportsbook could be a good idea for this encounter.
The two teams are expected to play a thrilling encounter since they are really close to each other on the leadership so both of them will need to win the game. Our La Liga betting guide predicts that Villarreal will be tight favourites for the clash, because they are in more convincing form as they won 4 out of their last 5 matches – including the one against Real Madrid. However, Deportivo are also doing great, having remained undefeated for their last 10 games and they played against both Barcelona and Atlético de Madrid. GamblingResults’ La Liga betting guide predicts both teams to score for 1.95 (19/20) at BetVictor Sportsbook.
Valencia are hosting Real Madrid at Mestalla on Sunday, 3rd January.

Phil Taylor exits the competition of William Hill World Darts Championship upon he has been unexpectedly defeated by Jelle Klaasen.
None of the online gambling news in the UK would have predicted the results of the World Darts Championship on day 12 since it did bring some shocking result. Not only Michael van Gerwen has been forced to leave the tournament but Phil Taylor exits as well due to a surprisingly great performance by his opponent Jelle Klaasen.
Phil Taylor exits the William Hill World Darts Championship as early as day 12. This is an incredibly poor performance by the successful darts player as he was regarded as number three seed player, meaning he is in the top 3 out of all participating darts players. However, Jelle Klaasen proved to be better than last year’s runner-up this time.
Gambling facts could not have been trusted this time since nothing implicated that Klaased could be good enough to defeat Phil Taylor. Klaasen did not win any major darts tournament since 2006 when he won the World Darts Championship. However, this time his performance was good enough to force out Phil Taylor’s exit of the competition.
Phil Taylor is one of the most famous darts players. Not only he was seeded number 3 this year, but he is a living legend in darts. He has won the World Darts Championship 16 times in the past and has been looking for his 17th world cup glory since 2013. He was extremely close to it last year but Gary Anderson defeated him in a glorious battle in the final. Now Jelle Klaasen did the same to him before the finals so the legendary darts player will have to wait at least another year to be able to become World Darts Champion again, for the 17th time throughout his fascinating career.
Said Silver on FiveThirtyEight’s Hot Takedown podcast: “My view is that daily fantasy should be a regulated industry in New York and elsewhere, and I think ultimately that should be a decision for the voters.”
Silver is the first head of a major sports league to comment on the ongoing DFS controversy, and the most outspoken advocate of legal sports gambling. He made his opinion first known in October, when he told ESPN that the NBA is not considering “withdrawing or backing off our relationship with the [DFS] industry”, and that “it’s something that we’re deeply engaged in on the broader subject of daily fantasy-slash-sports betting.” He also had written a New York Times piece about why sports betting should be legalized shortly after entering into an equity deal with FanDuel.
The most pressing question in American gambling laws right now is whether DFS is a game of skill, or of chance. Silver declined to discuss whether he believes that DFS constitutes as gambling or not, but did say that the legalization and regulation of both DFS and sports gambling would be in the best interest of major sports leagues.
Said the NBA commissioner: “One of the reasons I’ve been pushing to legalize sports betting is not because that I’m necessarily an advocate of sports betting, it’s because all the research shows that it’s a multi-hundred-billion dollar business just in the United States right now.”
“In terms of the integrity of the sports league, it’s only bad news for us when it continues to remain underground… [to] the extent there are fantasy sites or flat-out betting sites, where consumers identify themselves by putting credit cards in and then can be tracked the same way the stock market can track buying and selling, then that’s much healthier for the leagues.”
It has been officially announced at online gambling news that Pep Guardiola will leave FC Bayern Munich at the end of this season and Carlo Ancelotti will take over his place. This piece of information has given source to many of the latest transfer rumours, such as Lewandowski might be leaving FC Bayern. However, the team is said to already have found his replacement. Let’s check out the latest football transfer news now!
Goal reported that Carlo Ancelotti has been officially named as the replacement for Pep Guardiola, with whom Bayern Munich has dominated German football ever since his arrival in 2013. He won several cups including 2 Bundesliga titles, one German Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup trophy.
However, his contract with the Bavarian side is coming to an end as soon as this season finishes. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Bayern Munich’s Chief Executive Officer, has announced that Guardiola’s contract will not be renewed and will be replaced by the Italian manager, starting from next season.
Rummenigge did not fail to praise both managers as his team can proud to be working together with the best managers in the world. He highlighted the successful years that Guardiola has been achieving in Bayern, and have praised the amazing experience that Ancelotti has as a manager.
Meanwhile, Daily Mail reports that Carlo Ancelotti has already started planning his new project at the helm of Bayern Munich. According to gambling news in Germany, the Italian wants to give key responsibilities to Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich’s 27-year-old striker.
The Polish forward however, has been linked to Real Madrid on several occasions ever since the season has started. Cristiano Ronaldo is going to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season according to the latest transfer rumours, and Florentino Pérez wants to replace him with a top class striker. His choice would be Robert Lewandowski.
However, Ancelotti has signed for Bayern Munich based on several conditions. One of those was that Bayern Munich will be able keep the world-class striker in the team. Ancelotti believes Lewandowski and Douglas Costa are the main people in the attacking third of his new Bayern Munich.
Nevertheless, the Italian manager can worry about his previous team crossing his plans. Lewandowski’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, has been spotted at the Bernabéu stadium at the Real Madrid vs Getafe game and latest transfer rumours indicate he was negotiating about the possible move of his customer. Lewandowski told AS that he would prefer not commenting the rumours in connection with his future.
On the other hand, AS reported that Carlo Ancelotti is not a man without a plan. Even if Real Madrid would manage to capture his number 9, he would not have to be overly dramatic since he is said to already have found the perfect replacement for the Polish striker.
Ancelotti is said to be interested in Napoli’s striker, Gonzalo Higuaín, who has been playing in superb form so far this season. Should Los Blancos purchase Lewandowski, Bayern would try to buy the former-Galactico, who has scored 16 goals in 17 games in this season at the Italian team.
According to the latest gambling news, Gonzalo Higuaín seems very similar to Robert Lewandowski in regards of style and abilities. The Argentine’s contract expires in 2018, however there is a buy-out clause in his contract: whoever wants to purchase him, the team will have to pay EUR 94 million.
Punters tend to bet more and more this year and while they are loosing less than in the previous years, football betting in Vegas expects another record-breaking year.
That would be the fourth straight year when football betting in Vegas broke the record. Punters are doing extremely well this season, however weekends packed with upsetting sports scores in the NFL like week 9 and 10 help Las Vegas sportsbooks a lot to be still in reach for another record-breaking season.
MGM Sportsbook vice president Jay Rood told that football betting in Vegas is up by roughly 10% according to their books. However, the amount of money that the bookies can keep, the hold percentage, is slightly lower than last year at the moment.
Rood said, “Our handle is up, but we just haven’t been able to capitalize on it. Dollar for dollar, we’re just a little behind last year. It seems worse than it’s really been. If you look just at the [hold] percentage you’d think we were getting killed, but really we’re not.”

Football betting in Vegas produced its finest years in the previous three seasons. The Nevada Gaming Control accounted that all sports betting produced a $227 million profit for Nevada sportsbooks in 2014, which was $25 million more than the previous record in 2013. Roughly $113 million of the 2014 profits was produced by football betting in Vegas.
Experts of gambling facts might remember that the previous record was $91 million from 2006. The year when among others the New Orleans Saints tricked football betting in Vegas, recovering quickly after the Katrina and going to the NFC Championship game.
After a heavy start to the 2015 NFL season, Las Vegas sportsbooks came back in October and November. Operators offering football betting in Vegas were helped by some hectic results and underperforming and/or surprisingly struggling teams.
Westgate Superbook’s head football oddsmaker, Ed Salmons revealed that they actually needed Denver and Green Bay to win to complete their third winning weekend in a row. “Which is just so weird, needing those teams,” he said, and it was actually funny to see those clubs being priced rightfully as underdogs before the game.
He added, “At the end of the day, it’s probably rounding into just an average season. Our handle from September and October was up over last season, and we’re under construction.”
It seems that it is really worth to bet on football this season, as bettors are doing extremely well this year according to online gambling news. Though results are sometimes hard to predict, the NFL has always been a league that is fun and profitable to bet on at land based and online sportsbooks in the US, thanks to the available selection of money line, point spread, total score and half time markets plus the list of prop bets.
Liverpool signed and unveiled their new manager Klopp the Normal One within a week after Brendan Rodgers was fired after the Merseyside derby.
Jurgen Klopp was the favourite to land the Liverpool job after the announcement about Rodgers’ departure was issued. According to online gambling news, Klopp was linked with the club ever since he left Borussia Dortmund this spring after a seven-year long spell. Now he was handed a job that he defined as one of the most exciting and at the same time the hardest in the world of football.
Klopp the Normal One – this might be his nickname after he jokingly referred to Jose Mourinho’s legendary arrival to English football in 2004. By the Normal One, he means that he is just another German guy who lives, eats and breathes football. But Klopp the Normal One was arguably the most sought-after coach in the football world until the Reds have secured his services.
Therefore this move is also big for the Premier League, not only for Liverpool. Actually he was linked with every one of the top clubs in the Premiership in recent years, and he also mentioned several times that his dream is to manage an English club. New he got his opportunity, and Klopp the Normal One aims to bring the Premier League title to Anfield in four years.
Some experts of football and gambling facts say that Klopp is the most exciting manager addition to the Premier League in twenty years. He will bring his approach, his pool of ideas about football, and his footballing philosophy, though many Liverpool fans are suspicious about the latter, after Brendan Rodgers’ failure to meet his own terms in the end.
But Klopp the Normal one is a football intellectual with an innovative approach, who plays good and attractive football with his teams. And he has a squad that, with a little bit of transfer tinkering, could be a perfect one to embrace his ideas. He could be a transforming force at Liverpool, and this could be huge in the history of the club. All he need is love and time to build a side that could enchant the people of Liverpool.

Liverpool are currently tenth in the Premier League table after eight rounds. The Reds were handed online betting odds of 3.30 (23/10) to finish in top four in the Premier League by Bet365 Sportsbook. The top online betting site priced their top-six finish at 1.53 (8/15), which, after having signed Klopp, looks like a good deal for a Premier League safe bet, if you are willing to place a bigger wager.
A Liverpool League title would be the biggest surprise in sports scores news this season, and it is no surprise that Klopp the Normal One aims to deliver the Premier League trophy in four years. Liverpool is 41.00 (40/1) to win the league according to Bet365.
According to the state’s Gaming Control Board, Nevada gaming revenues fell in August, for the third month in a row.
Though Nevada gaming revenues still maintain an overall 1% increase comparing to last year, the results of 2015 June, July and August show a drop from the 2014 numbers. Certain areas of Las Vegas, namely the Strip, obviously has a problem, while other parts of the state produced a considerable growth.
According to online gambling news, issues related to baccarat are the main reasons behind the decrease in Nevada gaming revenues. The Strip had a 4.7% drop in August, while Nevada gaming revenues in total declined 1.4% comparing to the same month in 2014.
Baccarat along the Strip had a 16% decline in August comparing to the corresponding month last year. Gaming analysts Steven Wieczynski argued that this fall is due to the economic problems in China, causing Chinese players losing willingness to wager on baccarat. He said, “At this point, given the swirling macroeconomic uncertainties in China, we expect the Strip baccarat business to remain under pressure indefinitely.”
According to the numbers and gambling facts, slot players started to take over the Las Vegas Strip. While slot revenues grew in the area by 12%, table games declined 16%. It seems that many customers of casino table games rather visit the downtown casinos instead, where overall casino revenue produced a 15% growth.
North Las Vegas and the Boulder Strip also reported considerable increase, 21% and 30% respectively, contributing to the overall picture of Nevada gaming revenues, that is on almost 1% increase in 2015. Meanwhile Strip casinos reported a nearly 2% decline for this calendar year.
Cameron McKnight, gaming analyst for Wells Fargo Securities suggested that young people rather visit the Strip for partying than for gambling during these months. He said, “We note that the summer is skewed toward the leisure segment. In our view, the softness in gaming volumes is reflective of the current leisure customer increasingly younger, international and nightlife-oriented versus gaming focused.”
Nevada gaming revenues obviously do not include accommodation, clothing, food and drink incomes, which are major contributors for properties located in the area. Las Vegas is slowly becoming more of a party destination than a gambling capital.
Gambling is still big in the area, and it will be until US gambling laws in other states legalize the business. However, there are less and less gamblers in the younger generations who are attached to land-based casino gambling. They rather go to online poker rooms or online casinos for a gambling experience, not to mention online sports betting sites and now there are the daily fantasy sites as well.
Just check out Bovada Casino, if you’d like to know what a top US online casino looks like! After that, maybe you won’t plan to go to Las Vegas anymore to play your favourite casinos games either. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, but this doesn’t mean that there is no legal online gambling outside Vegas…
The EUR 5,300 Main Event of European Poker Tour Barcelona’s Season 12 is over. The prestigious competition was won by the professional poker player John Juanda, who has achieved great poker results in the past as well.
The new season kicked off with a record-breaking attendance in the Main Event and with a huge cash reward of over EUR 1 million for the lucky EPT Barcelona winner. Online poker sites can’t stop praising the gaming skills of the 44-year-old winner.
John Juanda is regarded as one of the greatest talents in the poker world. Not without a merit, the 44-year-old has just broken a record by becoming an EPT Barcelona winner and the Main Event of PokerStars‘ prestigious competition. He was the best out of 1,694 players and seized the first place, together with its EUR 1,022,593 cash reward.
This is the first EPT title of the successful poker player, according to online gambling news. Even though the fact that he won the largest amount of money, other players can be satisfied with the final results as well. Frederik Jensen finished in the third position, which awards him with a EUR 810,294 prize, while Steve Warburton’s silver medal comes with a EUR 941,613 cash reward.
The final round has started with Denys Shafikov being the overwhelming chip leader. Juanda quickly came up to the second position by an Ace and a King in hand, with which he defeated Andreas Samuelsson’s queens. Lots of hands later, Shafikov lost his leading position upon losing the all-in to Jensen, and eventually got knocked out by the latter EPT Barcelona winner Juanda.
At this point, Steve Warburton had the most coins, while Juanda was in second position. Jensen tried to match Juanda but his 2 pairs were not good enough against Juanda’s full house so he had to quit the game, leaving only 2 players in the game. Juanda had a great advantage over Warburton by now, thanks to which he managed to defeat his young rival.
The Indonesian EPT champion has added his prize of over EUR 1 million to his total career earnings which, due to his latest success, exceeds the USD 17 million. With this amount, John Juanda has made his way to the top 10 of all-time poker earners. He sat in the table with the second shortest stack but remained determined and focused until the last second, thanks to which he became EPT Barcelona winner.
However, it was doubtful whether he would even start competing in the EUR 5,300 Main Event of European Poker Tour Barcelona. Online mobile news report that he suffered from an illness and arrived in the last minute to play. In addition, only a few days ago, he was offered the chance to claim a prize of more than EUR 500,000 but he turned the offer down. Juanda explained his decision by saying that accepting that prize would have meant giving up on the EUR 1 million reward of the Main Event.
A total of 71 events were held throughout the European Poker Tour Barcelona poker tournament series. The 12th season of the prestigious poker competition kicked off in the Spanish city as usual, and has brought great excitement among gambling enthusiasts. Thrilling games and incredible cash rewards were the main attributes of EPT Barcelona.
Daniel Peche, a talented poker player from Germany, came away with a EUR 11,800 prize upon finishing first out of 312 participants of the EUR 200 NL Saturday Night SuperStack tournament. The next exciting competition was the EUR 5K NL 6-Max. Turbo event, where successful poker players were fighting for the incredible first prize.
PokerStars‘ 25K-euro High Roller event’s champion Martin Finger was one of the best gamblers who managed to reach the final, however he finished in the third position. Upon his elimination, only Wael Sarkis and Benjamin Pollak remained in the game and these two players faced each other for final glory and the unbelievable money prize. Pollak became the next EPT Barcelona winner eventually, claiming the EUR 118,460 cash reward.
By the time that the Main Event was down to a heads-up, the fast-paced EUR 300 NL Turbo Edition of EPT Main Event has celebrated another EPT Barcelona winner as well. Danillo Patella from Italy was named as the best out of 350 players. Due to his great performance at the poker tables, he received a EUR 19,850 cash reward. Romanian Adrian Costin Constantin finished as runner-up while Peter Eichhardt from Sweden stood on the bottom of the podium.
John Juanda has achieved incredible poker results by winning the €5,300 Main Event, knocking out both Jensen and Warburton. Not so much later another EPT Barcelona winner was celebrated. Gregory Torrents from France was participating in the EUR 100 NL Hyperturbo event and has claimed the EUR 5,130 first prize. He was the best one out of 264 poker players.
Another great victory was achieved about an hour later, when the €2K NL 6-Max. Turbo event has finished. Farid Jattin was crowned as the next king of poker tournaments as he has received the 83,290 euro first prize. Fillippo Lazzaretto was given the silver medal while Joao Vieira finished in the third position.
California could join those states that enable high-stakes raffles for the purpose of charity at professional sports events.
A bill that passed the state senate that would let professional sports franchises to organize high-stakes raffles. Those 50-50 games are very popular all around the country, raising considerable amounts of money for charities. Lucky players can feel like casino winners at the same time. Those who participate have a shot at half of the revenues, so it is easy to understand why these games are so exciting. Meanwhile players also know that they have contributed to a good cause. The other half of the money goes for charities. There is also criticism though. The bill currently in effect would still apply all the remaining charity organizations. That makes it really hard to raise money through raffles.
Major sports franchises in California strive for holding high-stakes raffles. According to current state regulations, only 90-10 raffles are legal. This means that players can go only for the 10% of the pot. At least 90% must be given away for charity. The 2001 bill also has that no electronic device can be used for selling raffle tickets or performing the draw.
A new proposal would let professional sports teams to be given an exemption from this law to organize 50-50 raffles. They would be also able to use devices, selling electronically generated tickets and employing a random number generator to determine the winner. Spectators at professional sports games, pro golf tournaments and NASCAR races would be able to participate. The raffle could be held only at the events itself.
This high-stakes raffles system works in almost 30 states in the US and it is in place in Canada as well. The point would be raising considerable amounts for charity through the large pool of sports fans. High-stakes raffles offer a much more tempting prize than the 90-10 raffles. Thus a large number of sports scores fans are expected to participate if the bill passes.
Many nonprofit organizations oppose the bill however. They feel that legislation would favor major sports unfairly. CEO of California Assn. of Nonprofits, Jason Masaoka said, “This bill is a carve-out. It creates special rules for raffles by sports leagues, but the old rules still apply to PTAs and school bands.”
Native American tribes operating casinos think that this would be a new form of gambling. David Quintana, California Tribal Business Alliance lobbyist said, “When you go from a 90-10 split to a 50-50 split, you’re moving away from charity to something more like a lottery. This is a huge change.”
Professional sports teams are lobbying for the possibility of organizing high-stakes raffles at sports events in California. These 50-50 raffles would be held at sports events only. 18 pro sports organizations, 23 minor league teams and golf and racing events are in the mix. Half of the revenues would go for charities. The players would go for the other half of the pot.
The bill already passed the state senate, online gambling news report. A similar law failed last year however. Several nonprofit organizations naturally opposes the new proposal. They argue that making an exemption favoring professional sports franchises would be unfair towards small charity organizations like food banks or churches. Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits was quoted by online mobile news, “Any bill that says there’s an exemption from the law for 11 corporations as named below, that immediately doesn’t smell right.”
Meanwhile high-stakes raffles are great success in many other states. Texas locals will vote in November whether to change state constitution or not in order to enable pro sports teams to organize raffles at their games. In California the bill is supported by franchises like the Los Angeles Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants and the Sacramento Kings. Service groups like the American Legion and Los Angeles Boys and Girls Club also back the proposal.
High-stakes raffles can raise a lot of money quickly. The Arizona Diamondbacks were able to sell a record USD 100,016 worth of raffle tickets in one game, using electronically generated tickets for their 50-50 raffle. They supported charities reacting to the Yarnell fire that killed 19 firefighters. Sen. Isadore Hall, the author of the law expressed that critics should be ashamed of fighting the bill. He argues that money generated by the high-stakes raffles would be vital for poor communities he represents, like Watts and Compton.
Although this is all about charities, there is a lot of money on the table too. Pointstreak Sports Technologies Inc. is an operator providing an electronic raffle system. That system is used by more than 70 pro sports teams all around the United States. Is is understandable why they spent more than 100,000 dollars in the last two years on lobbying to enter the largest market of the states…
The Washington Redskins are reportedly plan to make an RG3 trade, as the franchise quarterback seems to be surplus to the team.
However, the owners are allegedly against the RG3 trade. Robert Griffin III was the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft. Followers of live sports results might remember that he had an amazing rookie campaign, however, injuries struck and sophomore slump hit him too. He failed to retain his rookie form since, and it seems that head coach Jay Gruden doesn’t rate him as an outstanding QB.
Gruden took over the team before the previous season, however he wasn’t able to improve the team much. Scot McCloughan was named as new general manager this year to help to rebuild the team. The first big issue – among many – he will have to sort out is the quarterback issue and the possible RG3 trade.
It seems that virtually everyone at the Washington Redskins want an RG3 trade, online gambling news report. Except the owners, who still hang on their former 1/2 pick. According to team and league sources, the Redskins offered an RG3 trade for a few NFL franchises. There were no interest for Robert Griffin III, however.
It seems that Griffin ceased to be the starting quarterback in Washington, D.C. Maybe he will be removed even from the roster in the coming days. An influential part of the Redskins coaching staff is ready to forget RG3 for good. Since it doesn’t make sense to keep a former franchise QB on the books in surplus, they are willing to make an RG3 trade. However, they might not have the power to get rid of Griffin.
Teams will name their 53-man roster for the start of the season in the coming days. Scot McCloughan took over the team as general manager this year to rebuild the team, as sports scores followers might remember. He is expected to play a key role in making the decision whether to ditch Griffin or not.
It won’t be easy to arrange an RG3 trade. Griffin has a guaranteed USD 16.1 million on his contract for 2016. The Redskins decided to keep Griffin on the books using the fifth-year option of his deal. When the decision was made in April, it seemed that the Redskins will need him for 2016. Now it seems that that move was unthinkingly made or forced on the front office by the ownership.
Jay Gruden is 2.20 (6/5) favourite to be fired first in 2015 among NFL head coaches at GTbets. According to that, it seemed that he might loose out on the RG3 issue eventually. It turns out that he just might outlast the quarterback at the FedExField. But maybe only just, if his team fails to improve this season.
The injured Robert Griffin III didn’t participate in the third preseason game of the Washington Redskins. It seems that he still might have been hurt though. Kirk Cousins stood in for him when the starters took the field. The former Michigan State QB was praised by head coach Jay Gruden for his performance after the 31-13 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.
Griffin was cleared to play on Thursday after suffering a concussion, online mobile news reported. However, on the next day it was announced that he was unfit to take the field. And maybe he won’t take a snap in the Redskins’ preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins either. Especially as an RG3 trade can possibly happen before the start of the regular season. Washington are 2.55 (31/20) underdogs to win that match according to GTbets.
Jay Gruden tried to explain the situation about Griffin’s health reports. He revealed to the reporters after the game on Sunday, “We’re all as confused as you are. People have to understand that this has nothing to do with the Washington Redskins. I know people want to make it out that we’re incompetent, but this has nothing to do with us.”
Gruden was asked which quarterback will start against the Dolphins in the first 2015 regular season game of the Redskins. Gruden however refused to answer. He said, “First of all, I need to read these reports. These reports are confusing.” It seems that Griffin was announced to be cleared to play without reading the medical reports thoroughly, and after that came the new announcement about the player being unfit to play. It suggests a certain level of incompetence indeed.
And reports suggest that Cousins will start against the Dolphins. Moreover, a possible RG3 trade is circulating in the news in these days. Gruden dared to say that he doesn’t have a quarterback issue at all. However, he did not name franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III as his starting QB when the player was healthy. He said instead, “I believe we have three NFL-caliber quarterbacks on our team”. Which means that he is undecided. And now with a rumored RG3 trade… It seems pretty much like a quarterback issue.
Tribal casino resort of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe will receive the final answer in 30 days.
Several gambling sites have been talking about the tribal casino resort project of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe. The Indian tribe aims to build a casino resort in the city of Taunton for which the Mayor of appears to be in favour of, however they have encountered some problems.
Representatives of the Mashpee tribe are optimistic in connection with their project and believe that the US federal department will be positive about them as well. The tribe’s lawyer also believes that there are several positive signs so they are optimistic for a reason.
According to the reports by gambling news in the United States, the case of the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian tribe will be closed in 30 days. Their aim is to find out whether the government will support the Indian tribe with a license for their USD 500 million project of setting up a new casino in Taunton.
Representatives of the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe were asked whether they believe in receiving a license or not. They replied that they are rather optimistic, especially that the US Bureau of Indian Affairs informed them about an upcoming decision, however they still don’t know what the result will be.
The tribe is being represented by the successful lawyer, Arlinda Locklear. The attorney said that it was a sign of progress that the Bureau still works on the case and still regard it as priority. She said that this fact gives them lots of hope and it is a good sign, however they still do not know what the decision will be.
The parcel where the Indian tribe plans on building the casino resort is occupied by an industrial park now. Tauton Mayor Tom Hoye believes that if his town got a new tribal casino resort, that would result in “a great economic boost” for his area. Meanwhile tribal chairman Cedric Cromwell said that they have always been confident about their prospects and are waiting for positive answers.
Online gambling news in the United States report that the US Department of the Interior has given a 30-day comment period on the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s casino project. They submitted their application back in the beginning of 2013. Tribal chairman Cedric Cromwell said it was a positive sign that the plan is moving forward and the case is still not closed down.
The Taunton office park is near the junction of routes 140 and 24. That is where the tribe wishes to build their new tribal casino resort. The Mashpee tribe has applied for the land-in-trust project of the government and their application is still being processed. They have started planning in 2012 and their idea was taken positively.
In the beginning the federal government has taken the project with lots of scepticism and doubts. That is, because they believed that a gaming agreement between the tribe and the state was not such a great idea. They were not sure if the project would be approved by the Gaming Commission.
The tribe received a letter on Friday, 21 August that they will get the final answer within 30 days. The Bureau of Indian Affairs is expected to issue a reservation proclamation, however they would do that only in case of their initial reservation was granted by the government, said Arlinda Locklear, tribal lawyer.
Estele Borges, Tauton City Council President, has received a letter on 21 August from the federal Department of the Interior. In this letter they were explained that the decision is imminent and they will receive a final answer to their 500 million dollar tribal casino resort project within the next 30 days.
Taunton city officials have not commented on the letter or the process of the tribal casino resort project so far. Meanwhile, Rodney Collins, Town Manager of Mashpee, has said that he has not received any official notification. Collins added that they are still waiting and hoping for it to arrive soon.
Gambling law news report that the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe aims to receive an area of 171 acres in Mashpee, and 152 acres in Taunton. Cedric Cromwell, tribal chairman, has said that it was a surprise to receive the letter to Taunton. Of course it made them really excited even though it is still not a positive closure.
Indian tribes are given permission to offer the same types of gambling where casinos are legalized, thanks to the federal laws. However, state agencies are unlikely to regulate tribal casino. That is more of a job for the National Indian Gaming Commission.
