Who's the best early World Cup bet?

With the 2010 World Cup approaching, now is the time to lay some cash down on your favorite team.

While books have the usual suspects like Brazil, England and Spain favored to win, there are many teams with some good odds if you are one who like the futures bet.

Here are some faves and some longshots to look at before you place your wager:

var currentEventId = "F553-Algeria-081510|F|1|400|1"; var theCheckedEventId = document.forms["oddsUpdate"]["checkedEventId"].value; if (theCheckedEventId != "" && currentEventId == theCheckedEventId) { document.forms["BET"]["selection[F553-Algeria-081510F]"].checked = true; }
Argentina +800

With a star-studded roster, a legendary coach and a hunger to win, Argentina is an interesting bet. Headed by the country’s most legendary footballer, Diego Maradona, the Argentineans look to claim their first World Cup title since 1986.

In its tenth consecutive World Cup, Argentina has arguably one of the most talented squads in the tournament. Studs like Javier Mascherano and Juan Sebastian Veron will man the middle while Lionel Messi, the world’s best player, is sure to draw much attention from defenders.

After recent disappointment on the world stage, the Argentineans are out fo... [More]

Pride champ dogged due to lack of exposure?

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4

When Takanori Gomi makes his UFC debut Wednesday night at UFC Fight Night 21, the Pride lightweight champion will be fighting against the odds, literally.

MMA fans, fighters and sportsbooks alike have not given Gomi much of a chance since the fight with Kenny Florian was announced. The Japanese shooto sensation, a +230 underdog, is out to show his disbelievers what he’s made of.

Despite what books think of him, Gomi poses a serious threat to Florian and his quest at another title shot. While the UFC veteran seems like a safe bet, the underdog has the experience and the firepower to boost your bankroll.

So is Gomi’s dog tag due to his lack of being in the mainstream MMA media? Maybe it is due to the fact that he’s fighting under a new set of rules? Could it be because of the quality wins Florian has put up recently?

Wednesday night the books will see if they got it right.

March Madness futures ripe for the picking?

With the Sweet 16 now upon us, books have adjusted their futures odds and bettors should  be able to cash in.

With tourney faves like Kentucky (+175), Syracuse (+400) and Duke (+500) getting most of the attention, some dark horse teams have the ability not only make a run at the title, but they may even boost your bankroll.

Here are a few long shot bets worth taking a look at:

Tennessee Volunteers +3500
After suffering a devastating 29-point loss to Kentucky in the SEC Tournament final, the Volunteers now have a chip on their shoulder.

With two seniors and two juniors in its starting lineup, Tennessee has the recipe for success; experience, experience, experience.

Look for Bruce Pearl to rally his troops like only he can. Should the Vols take the title this year, even a small bet could mean a huge payday!

Ohio State Buckeyes +800
Ohio State was the first futures bet I laid down when the tourney started.

With phenom Evan Turner leading the way, the Buckeyes are a force to be reckoned with. After a not-so-spectacular opening game against UC-Santa Barbara, Turner showed why he is arguably the top college hoops star this year, banging out an effortless 29 point, 9 rebound and 9 assist game in a 19-point trouncing of Georgia Tech.

While +800 isn't +3500, Ohio State is probably the safest bet outside the Big 3.

Michigan State Spartans +3000
