Widow of lung cancer victim wins 23.6 billion in damages, Is this a positive or negative outcome?

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/widow-of-lung-cancer-victim-wins-236bn-in-damages-from-tobacco-company-rj-reynolds-9617139.html

I'll let you read the story but should we be celebrating this woman's victory over the company or is she being rewarded for something other people aren't?

How do you make money betting on baseball, I'm on the verge of throwing in the towel?

In the other big sports no matter how bad or how good you are at handicapping those sports, You can develop an idea as to what works, Yet with baseball despite my genuine interest in the sport, In the 4/5 years I've been betting on it, I'm still at square one.

Do you handicap the teams? or the pitchers? or the opposing pitchers? Which of those factors do you rely on for giving you confidence in making a bet? 

If the above questions are not relevant, I apologise, All i'm asking for is someone who is doing well betting on baseball to share their opinions on how they approach betting baseball in here.

Stores now selling recreational weed in Washington state area

http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/07/07/washington-state-recreational-marijuana/12281997/

Is this a sign of things to come? Legalized weed, That doesn't sit well with me.

How do you set the odds for the Germany v France game after the performances in today's matches?

When France mucked about against Nigeria and scraped through 2-0, I had the line at +125 for Germany as long as they had a routine win, Now after the average performance by the Germans i'm leaning more towards +140 Germany France +200 and the Draw +275.

Germany will be licking their lips after watching this first half LOL

The first team France have faced who aren't pathetic and they have been exposed for what we all knew they were, So much space for Nigeria to run into. It's a classic case of being a flat track bully, France will get beat easily by Germany in the next round, Assuming they can stumble past Nigeria. Germany have the better manager, better attack, slightly better defense and more experience, I was hoping France would put on a show today so i could get a better line on Germany.

Greece players turn down WC bonuses but instead want that money to fund building sports center

https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/blogs/the-rio-report/greece-surprising-request-turning-down-world-cup-bonus-133423113.html

Just when i thought maybe my opinions on the African nations threatening to boycott over bonuses was a bit harsh, Greece prove to me that i was right all along, Playing for your country is enough, It's called pride and integrity.

Talking of pride and integrity, Here's the opposite of that, A Ghanaian player kissing his bonus money which was sent by his government after threatening to boycott a crunch group game vs Portugal :-

Ghanaian players boycott training after not receiving their 75 k bonuses


I called out African players at the start of the tournament when Cameroon did it and people said to me how i was wrong etc, Here you have another African nation which should be preparing for a big game against Portugal instead are boycotting training for money.

The Ghanaian government has since sent $3 million in bonuses so that they don't boycott the game itself. 

No pride, Just money,money,money is all African men care about.

I bet they are too busy thinking about White chicks and money whilst they are playing hence why they are headbutting each other ala Cameroon and hence why they are being stupid and greedy and trying to score the 3rd goal instead of taking the ball to the corner to try and see the game out ala Coat da Ivory. 

Not once have we seen a non African nation boycott international tournaments for money or bonuses.

Argentina will score 3 goals minimum today in my opinion

WC Record 4-4 (6-5)

Very busy with work this week so only played two bets which i didnt post, Had France last night and lost on the Brazil/Mexico over.

Todays bet is simple, Nothing else on the card should interest you if you are willing to break down everything into simple information.

1) Argentina are coming off a lackluster performance, Motivation

2) Iran are coming off a very good defensive and overall performance, Slight decrease in performance

3) Argentina are on paper a better team by a country mile, Guaranteed to win the game come what may

4) Argentina are the South American side who will have conditions more suited to them than Iran, Better physical condition

5) Argentina are not inflated stupidly, The price is where it should be imo, Value

The bet is:-
Argentina over 2.5 goals at -120

Every shilling of profit i have and the bankroll i had at 0-0 on this game, If i lose it, I'll accept my loss and watch the World Cup without any betting involvement. There won't be many spots in the World Cup like this for me, If this was the Premier League i'd bet flat because a similar bet could pop up next week but this might be the last game where you have everything in your favor.

Am i going nuts or has every team barring Croatia/Costa Rica, Defended badly?

My first thought was the heat but even in games played during the rain for example Mexico v Cameroon and last nights Jap v IC game, Why is there an emphasis on playing free flowing football, Especially in the first match? The book says in the first game you play to not get beat unless you are a -200 fave or bigger and your opponent is someone you should beat. Don't get me wrong i'm loving it but i feel for the people who have bet unders in this tournament so far, Maybe in the 2nd round of fixtures things will change.

Why are England favored over Italy, I mean after all England are rubbish, right?

2-0 WC

A week before the tournament started Italy were +160 faves and now they are +190 underdogs, That's not a line move created by me and you. The state of the manaus pitch makes this game a little more unpredictable imo, If the surface was better England would comfortably win this but never the less i think for the first time in a while England are being underrated. England have a pragmatic European style manager, They have a lot more genuine talent at their disposal other than pretty boy Beckham and fat Frank Lampard, Sterling, Wilshere, Barkley, Lallana have a lot of energy plus they finally have a big time striker to go along with Rooney in Sturridge.

Italy on the other hand have Mario 'I will not grow up' Balotelli and they have a overhyped mediocre striker in Ciro Immobile who scored a bunch of goals in games where his team won at a canter, Hardly the mark of a great player. Pirlo is older and defensively they are not Italian this bunch, I honestly think Italy might end up with 1 point once the group stages are finished, and that point will be against Costa Rica.

England ML +188 forget taking them on the pk, Grow a pair.

Other bets i have going,
Uruguay over 1.5 goals -138 v Costa Rica
Greece +0.5 v Columbia

Things will get a bit too spicy for those flamin dingos tonight, It's a red hot bet

Just won my Mexico bet and also had the over last night, Despite not posting i will be counting that in my own record obviously not on here, So 1-0 for me.

I'm not going to mess about with the spread or the ML but straight bet Chile over 1.5 goals at -150, Great value imo, If the ML is -225 and the over 1.5 is -150, I think that's great value, The odds of this being a tight,cagey 1-0 are very, very limited.

My philosophy in the group stage will be bet the South American big chalk where there is value but NEVER bet European big chalk no matter how good the situation is for obvious reasons, Upsets are more likely to happen against them. 

Chile over 1.5 goals -150, That's the red hot bet for tonight fellas, Whilst we wait for that we get to watch what should be a great game between Spain/Holland although i fear it could be a snooze fest with the total being at 2.

If Mexico are bad, What does that make Cameroon?

I know Mexico have had an awful qualifying campaign but at least they want to play for their country, The Cameroonians are an utter joke, Throwing their toys out of the pram over bonuses.

Who else is with me? I had the over last night and that won easily, Mexico +125 for me today, Footballing justice takes place, Greedy Africans shall not get a win or draw.

Kanye West, Usher, Will I am, Floyd Mayweather, Ludicrous and many more Black musicians have all bum kissed this little ponse in the past, Let's see how all those closet racists react to Biebers racism, Will they side with their boy or will they fake disgust.

Michael Sam being compared to Jackie Robinson, Oh boy

Ironic how he says he doesn't wanted to be treated any differently to the other players in the draft yet goes out of his way to drop this bombshell.

You really think the NFL will have Peyton, Their poster boy, Lose his final Super Bowl appearance?

Peyton is 37, He wont be going to the Super Bowl next year regardless of whether he wins or loses tonight considering how badly the odds will be stacked against him and his team. So with his body condition, Do you really think he could produce this sort of elite form in 2 years time? I don't.

Peyton has had two weeks to work on the game plan, That's more than enough time for him to have worked out the Hawks defense, Throw in the fact he loves facing aggressive defences. The weather conditions will help him in the sense he doesn't have to put it on his arm which apparently he isn't good enough to do what with the so called choker tag placed on him.

The other fact that really worries me is and this you can make fun of me for is, I have seen Black QB after Black QB lose Super Bowls and until one wins one in my life time, I'm not going to bet on one, I gave up when Mcnabb started puking up in the huddle with 4 minutes to go against the Eagles.

Anyway, Who's more likely to grace the ESPN website main page tomorrow morning, Manning with the words MVP next to it, Or Marshawn Lynch or Richard Sherman?

Denver -5.5 +163 is the play

When god was making Asian people, Did he forget to give them common sense?

Seriously, Asians are some of the most gullible and naive people on the planet, You can have all the book smarts you want but you cant buy common sense. No wonder why they always have a look of 'Im lost' on their faces.

Why the hell is the Giants v Redskins, The Sunday night game still?

I thought the flex scheduling lark was in place, Why couldn't they have the Eagles v Cards or Bengals v Chargers as the NBC game? Who the hell wants to watch RGIII on primetime for the gazillionth time this year and don't even get me started on the Giants.

Are the Panthers the best equipped team to beat the Seahawks in the Seattle during the play offs?

First off let me say this is not a jump on the bandwagon after a big prime time win sort of thread, Once i saw them beat the 49ers in SF who were coming off a bye week with Jim Harbaugh as their coach i knew this team was the real deal.
The question i have for you lot out there is, Out of these teams, New Orleans, Carolina, Detroit, Philly/Dallas/NYG and SF who has the best chance of winning a game in Seattle during the play offs?
It has to be Carolina doesn't it? New Orleans got beat out there when the Seahawks were 7-9 and if weather is a factor, The Saints and Lions chances tended to go down severely. San Francisco has shown they barely have a chance of competing in that stadium let alone winning, Plus the fact it's a division rival means it is easier to win that game also. Then you have the 3 NFC East teams, Philly are not there yet in my opinion, Defense has no identity, Offense is a bit of a gimmick and the QB situation is still up in the air. The Giants have a good shot but then the chance of them being there is the bigger question, Experience is their best ammo. Dallas has a decent chance but then there's no evidence they have a big win in them, On paper they have a chance versus everyone as shown against Denver but they don't have that big game winning mentality. 
That leaves Carolina, Solid running game, Solid passing game and good defense, Not a dome team and a hungry team with no previous play off bad memories.

New Orleans opens up at -3 -115 vs the 49ers next week Lol

What's our opinion of this opening line and is it one of those reverse trap games, If there is such a thing? 


p.s. a reverse trap game is when even a square gambler realizes the line is too good to be true and then decides to bet the underdog and ends up still losing.

Navy +17, Who likes this bet?

Mulling over whether to make this play, Any late advice?

What did Greg Schiano just do right there??

Kicking a fg down 14 with 5 minutes to go and at the opponents 25 yard line?

Why are modern day women so odd? What the hell do they actually want?

Recently i was going through a dry spell, I had been single for 3 months however was actively going out. I then come across this 7/10 brunette, big melons, Either Irish or Jewish descent, You know the type. 
So we text each other for a few days and stuff before i decid to go in for the kill and arrange a get together, She started dancing around the issue a bit and uncharacteristically i got angry and just said get lost to her, I wasn't in the mood for a yes/no, yes/no type, Either go out with me or stop talking to me.
The next morning she texts me to meet up with her at lunch time and how she was sorry and how she wanted to go out with me but wasn't 100 % sure at the time. I go out with her on the date, I make some in roads and then we end up going to a hotel 2 days later to end the dry run. 
2 days later i go out again with some friends and with my respect for women withering, I was not my usual self towards the women in the bar, I just couldn't be bothered to say hello,hi. Yet it seemed my distance was an attraction, I usually have to work the charm to get a woman to give me her number and even then my record would be 55 % at best.
I know the media has f-ucked up modern society in general, Lack of respect for elders etc but the fact that women find men who are angry or bad or rugged more attractive than nice men has me puzzled and just a little disappointed.
Is it just me fellas? ... [More]

Do we ignore the Patriots receivers issues this week because of the extra days to prepare?

The Patriots line opened up at -9.5 +110 on pinnacle during the first quarter of the Seahawks/49ers game and has been bet down to 7. Now usually when a line move of that nature happens i completely ignore the situation because the line has drifted down to a key number where nothing good can happen but how can you ignore Bill Belichicks preparation skills? He is up there with only 2/3 coaches in all of sports who given extra days to prepare and a home game, Will beat any team in their league.

I don't actually think the Bucs are as bad as people think but the issues they have internally don't give you much confidence betting them in this spot.

Patriots -7, Off of a long week vs a mediocre side who are having issues in their camp, Only suggests one play in my opinion. 

If you're backing Tampa this week, Whats your reasons?
