NBA Playoffs Houston vs Portland Game 2 Preview

NBA Playoffs Houston vs Portland Game 2 Preview

The NBA Playoffs continue with game 2 between the Houston Rockets and the Portland Trailblazers.



Portland is up 1-0 after a thrilling 122-120 win in overtime after a collapse by the Houston Rockets who were up by 10 points with around 4 minutes to go in the game.

Portland hacked Dwight Howard repeatedly to send the 50% roughly free throw shooter to the line that led to a run that sent the game to overtime.

Here is the thing Dwight Howard with 4 minutes left in the game is not worth being on the floor, there is no justification to it.  He will get fouled and that isn’t a good thing for your team for multiple reasons.  First the rest of the players in Houston get out of rhythm offensively, secondly the other team gets the ball back with a maximum of 2 points scored on them and on average just 1 point.

Dwight Howard defensively is just not that good, that leaving him on the floor is a positive proposition for the Houston Rockets.  Sit his ass on the bench and they probably win game 1.  It will be a permanently liability for the Houston Rockets and there is no reason to trust Dwight Howard and here is why.

Dwight Howard shoots free throws around 50% and this is being in the NBA, with coaches, training, specialists for years to improve his free throw shooting.  After all of that he is still a 50% free throw shooter, that is why you can’t trust that all of a sudden he will make the shots, he can’t do it.  He might someday figure it out but right now he is a liability when the other team starts fouling, take his ass out.

This means that the Houston Rockets have to win by 7 points or more to win this bet.  If Houston wins by 6 you get your money back and its a wash on either side.  If Houston wins 95-90 then Portland wins this bet as you add 6 points so 96 Portland vs 95 Houston.

Houston Rockets vs Portland Trailblazers Game 2 Predictions

I would first like to say I have Portland before the series started to win the series.  I think Houston isn’t that good actually, with James Harden being overrated.  James Harden is aggressive that means he takes a lot of shots and drives to the hole to get to the foul line a lot.  He isn’t a great shooter and that showed in game 1 where he missed 20 shots.  He takes as many shots as Carmelo Anthony but isn’t as talented shooter as him unfortunately.

Portland played incredible in Game 1 and barely beat a team that had Harden missing 20 shots.  Despite being Houston being over rated, I am changing my mind and taking Houston to win game 2 and the series.  Portland should have been able to win before then, and I think Houston is the better team in the series, but will probably get stomped in the second round.  I also like the Under because 214.5 is really high for the playoffs.

Prediction: Houston 116-98

Enjoy Game 2 of the Houston Rockets vs the Portland Trailblazers!

2014 Masters Best Tournament Odds Get More Value Here

It’s time for the 2014 Masters Odds I had them before for most of the players, but they obviously changed without Tiger Woods.  Tiger Woods if you don’t know is not going to be playing in the 2014 Masters unfortunately.  Good thing is the 2014 Masters is still the 2014 Masters and is bigger than any one player.

Augusta National

I want you to get the best odds so when you win, you get as much as you can and its more important in Golf than most sports.

In an NBA Game a $20 bet at 1 site could make you $16 at one site and $19 at another for a $3 difference.

In Golf you could get a player on a $20 bet that is 100 to 1 at 1 site and 201 at another and it could cost you $2040 more profit on a $20 bet so getting the best odds is really important.

Epic Betfair Sportsbook Promotion if Rory Mcilroy Wins

If Rory Mcilroy Wins the 2014 Masters than Betfair Sportsbook will pay out bets obviously on Rory Mcilroy to Win but they will also pay out second place like they won!

Example: You have Fred Couples at 125-1 and put $5 on Freddy and he loses in a playoff to Rory Mcilroy you would still get your $625 payout at Betfair Sportsbook and if you had Rory Mcilroy to win as well you would get paid on that as well like normal!  Great promotion and if you think Rory might win then Betfair Sportsbook could be your place because you could win twice or get paid even if your player doesn’t win.

Who is the 2014 Masters Favourite?

It’s a battle between two players really for the odds on favourite between Rory Mcilroy and defending champion Adam Scott.  Phil Mickelson and Jason Day follow shortly behind.

Fun Fact: Did you know that if Phil Mickelson wins he has earned his 4th Green Jacket!  Phil Mickelson has really done well at Augusta and has been playing the last couple weeks and improving.  Don’t count out Phil to win it this year.

2014 Masters Par 3 Contest Tournament Odds

The 2014 Masters Par 3 contest kicks off Wednesday as it always does and it is a fun little 9 hole tournament, that only last one day.   Usually 5 or 6 under wins this fun little tournament.

The Par 3 Course is played on a separate short course from the one they will be playing in the Masters.  It’s great to see it each year if you are a hardcore fan watching the Masters on Wednesday.

There are tons of players in the tournament that aren’t usually in the actual field.  Including VIP’s, Augusta National Members and other players that may not be in the actual Masters Tournament.

Last year Ted Potter Jr. won the Par 3 Tournament with a score of 23 but won in a play off over Phil Mickelson and Matt Kuchar.

Padraig Harrington has won the event 3 times!

No one has gone on to win the Masters after winning the Par 3 Tournament…

2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Preview with Odds

2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship Preview with Odds

March Madness ends in April and it ends tonight with the 2014 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Championship!

Just a couple of #1 Seeds playing it out for the national championship this year, oh wait its a #7 Seed vs a #8 Seed!

#7 UConn vs #8 Kentucky in an epic battle of two great coaches, and really talented teams that had to knock out higher seeds over and over to get to the National Championship.

#8 Kentucky has been incredibly clutch over and over to get this far, they have won there last 4 tournament games by a total of 11 points combined.

#7 UConn took out arguably the best team in the tournament by 10 points in beating #1 Florida 63-53 and they were even down 16-4 early before just taking them down with stellar defence and the 3 ball festival.

Coaching Battle

John Calipari of #8 Kentucky is one of the great coaches in the game, and is going up against the University of Connecticut Kevin Ollie who both have done absolutely phenomenal jobs coaching there respective squads to get them into the National Championship once again.

University of Connecticut has 3 National Championships since 1999 and are going for there 4th in a 15 year period.  Kentucky on the other side of the coin have won 8 National Titles including the most recent out of the two in 2012.  Both of these schools have won a national championship this decade and its so impressive that one of them is going to have a second.

2014 Men’s Basketball National Championship Betting Odds and Prediction

You here them talking about the spread on TSN before the game now you can be a part of the action as well.  I thought UConn would be the favourite for this game before it started.  I just think if you dominate #1 Florida and haven’t gotten here on close wins you would be the slight favourite.

#7 UConn vs #8 Kentucky To Win National Championship Straight Up

Kentucky to Win 1.64 Odds

Connecticut to Win  2.35 Odds

$20 on UConn wins $47

Kentucky vs Connecticut Point Spread

Kentucky -2.5 Points 1.90 Odds

Connecticut +2.5  Points 1.90 Odds

Total Points Combined in National Championship

Over 134.5 Points 1.90 Odds

Under 134.5 Points 1.90 Odds

2014 Men’s National Championship Prediction

With the weird #7 vs #8 I think this is going to be an incredible game, down to the wire.  I don’t think it will be a blow out by either team and what else can you ask for that a great game that will crown the National Championship Team!

Prediction: UConn 65 – Kentucky 63

I think the Under 134.5 is a great bet to make on this game, they are going to be nervous and miss a lot of shots early I believe.

I like UConn because they just feel like they are going to find a way to win and can get the key stops when they need it with there great defence.

Enjoy the 2014 Men’s Basketball National Championship

Kobayashi Prank on New York Cosmos Chicken Wing Contest

Kobayashi Prank on New York Cosmos Chicken Wing Contest

I seen the Kobayashi Prank on Yahoo and knew it was going to be epic, and it is one of the funniest videos I have ever seen.  The reactions are priceless from the New York Cosmos Pete Marosevic and his team mates when Kobayashi really brings the heat in the Chicken Wing Contest.  They set it up so perfectly with Kobayashi looking like a bus boy and even getting a thank you from his mark.

What happens is that hey dress up the World’s fastest eating champion as a bus boy at Buffalo Wild Wings and he goes around cleaning up the tables.  Then the Manager comes by and challenges them to a chicken wing competition.  Kobayashi starts really slow and then just crushes the New York Cosmos star Pete Marosevic.  Its so funny how Kobayashi just crushes with his weird eating style.

Pete tries to replicate Kobayashi but there is no chance obviously.

Kobayashi Prank Buffalo Wild Wings Video

Final Tally on the Kobyashi Prank Chicken Wing Eating Contest

Despite Kobayashi just waiting for the first 90 seconds he absolutely destroys 58-18.  This is one of the best harmless pranks that is just hilarious and no one gets hurt, just humiliated.

2014 Men’s World Curling Championship Day 2 Preview

2014 Men’s World Curling Championship Day 2 Preview

One day is in the books at the Men’s World Curling Championship and it turned out to be a shocking start to the championship in Beijing.

Who would think that Germany of all teams went perfect 2-0 to start the competition and the host China is without a victory.  The United States have started off the worst with the only team to drop 2 games on day 1.

Germany and Sweden top the table with a 2-0 start and that is followed by Canada, Czech Republic and Norway who are 1-0.

Germany hammered on host China 11-5 in the first game then chucked it in Russia 9-5 in the second really convincing start by the German squad.

Canada kicked off with a 6-3 victory over Denmark interestingly it was the lowest scoring match of the entire day.  Canada will play two games on day 2 versus Japan and the host China in the night session in Beijing.

2014 Men’s World Curling Championship Day 1 Results

Russia 8 Switzerland 7

Czech Republic 9 USA 7

Germany 11 China 5

Sweden 8 Scotland 4

Canada 6 Denmark 3

Germany 9 Russia 5

Sweden 8 USA 6

Norway 9 Japan 5

2014 Men’s Curling Championship Day 2 Preview

There are 3 draws on Day 2 with the first draw a 1/2 draw with only 2 matches in the morning and then 4 matches in the afternoon and evening sessions.

I think the match of the day will be the battle of the top two teams Sweden vs Germany with one of them going to 3-0 and if it is Germany they will really send shock waves through the curling community.

Remember that these games will be happening soon since the tournament is held in Beijing China so about a 12 hour time difference from Eastern Time in Canada I believe.

World Series of Poker Main Event has 10 Million Guarantee to Winner

World Series of Poker Main Event has 10 Million Guarantee to Winner

The 2014 World Series of Poker Main Event has a 10 Million Guarantee to the winner, that is frankly the stupidest idea they have ever had.

I wasn’t sure till now if it was a good or bad thing for the World Series of Poker Main Event to have a 10 Million Dollar Guarantee to the winner and now I am certain it is ridiculously stupid.

No Gimmicks Required

The WSOP Main Event is the World Championship of Poker and it needs no gimmicks or no ridiculous guarantees, its the tournament that everyone in the entire world wants to win in actual poker players.  It is the one tournament in one sport where anyone can show up with $10,000 or get in via satellite and have a chance to call themselves the World Champion of Poker by winning this incredibly prestigious event.  Placing a guarantee to the winner is idiotic and honestly devalues the entire F***ing Event!

This is the tournament with a 2 hour blind structure where the winner is decided by incredible luck and skill, a tournament where so many pros play there A game only to fall short of the glorious title.

 It’s the easiest $10,000 buy in tournament and the hardest to win at the same time.  There is so many poorly skilled players in the massive field, but there is also so many top skilled players that want this more than anything.

I don’t give a shit if the tournament has $8,320,000 or $15,000,000 for first prize I want this title and glory that would mean everything to me and so many other people.  Putting a $10,000,000 guarantee may make it a much steeper payout structure which is the least thing poker needs with it already being too steep and stupid on online poker rooms like Poker Stars.  How stupid is it that we go through 4,000 players to make the final table where the difference between 9th and 1st is 20x!  Its absolutely f***ing idiotic to have so much variance when the hardest part is just making that final table.

Playing to Win Regardless

The World Series of Poker Main Event is only slightly different, it is one tournament where I would never take a deal and only goal is to win, but that motivation is already there and players that finish 2nd to last in the money shouldn’t be punished with a cut in a payout purely based on a publicity stunt.

This publicity stunt will only be successful if we get a record feel of like 10,000 players this year, then I give them some kudos for help driving a record breaking field.  I want this championship and I can only hope that I can raise the 10 K to get in and it would never change my decision to play or not with a 10 Million Dollar Guarantee!

2014 Men’s World Curling Championship Draw 1 Preview Beijing China

It’s time for the 2014 Men’s World Curling Champions Draw 1 from Beijing China!

4 Matches like usual will be played in Draw 1 and 8 teams will defending champion Sweden playing in the first draw, with Canada sitting out till the afternoon session in Beijing China.

Kevin Koe

If your in Europe then you should be fine as it starts early in the morning if your in Canada however, your going to have some late night or very early morning sessions.

The first draw kicks off at 2 AM Eastern Time Midnight Saskatchewan Time and 2 PM Beijing Time

China the host nation is the biggest odds favourite heading into the first draw as they play Germany.  I can’t remember Germany ever competing late in a curling tournament so that is probably a pretty safe bet.

Match of the Draw

It has to be the heavyweight battle between Scotland and defending champion Sweden.  Both countries were in the playoffs of last year’s championship and they both will disappointed to lose there first match.

Scotland vs Sweden Match Prediction

I really like Sweden in the first match vs Scotland as David Murdoch isn’t the skip and Sweden should have a slight edge.  Predicting a 8-6 Sweden victory.

Draw 1 Best Possible Match Odds

They are the best possible odds because I searched various sports books and picked the best odds I could find from each.

Draw 1 Switzerland vs Russia

Switzerland to Win 1.36 Odds (Bet 365 Sportsbook)

Russia to Win 3.00 Odds (Betsafe Sportsbook)

Prediction: Switzerland 8 Russia 5

Draw 1 USA vs Czech Republic

USA to Win 1.68 Odds (Unibet Sportsbook)

Czech Republic to Win 2.17 Odds (Betsafe Sportsbook)

Prediction: China 9 Germany 3

Draw 1 Scotland vs Sweden

Scotland to Win 2.10 Odds (Betsafe Sportsbook)

Sweden to Win 1.75 Odds (Unibet Sportsbook)

World Men’s Curling Championship Tournament Preview

World Men’s Curling Championship Tournament Preview

Last week we saw Swizerland take the Women’s Championship away from Canada in the finals.  Putting an end to the Canadian onslaught that swept the entire Olympics.

Now it’s time for the men to go to war for World Championship glory.  Canada’s probably the odds on favourite once again, but there are some serious teams that will be a great challenge to Canada to take them down.

 We had an exciting Men’s Final at the Sochi Winter Olympics however both of those teams are not in the tournament which is a disappointment and makes this tournament a completely new ball game.

Canada had Brad Jacobs dominating the Sochi Winter Olympics taking home Gold and isn’t in this tournament, they didn’t win the qualifying tournament instead Kevin Koe’s rink did.

Canada has Kevin Koe representing Canada and some serious issues are leading up to this tournament about potential changes in his team.  The second and third of Kevin Martin’s team is apparently replacing the current second and third of Kevin Koe’s current team.  I don’t know if the potential shake up will affect how the team plays, but it isn’t really the kind of chemistry you would expect for a team representing Canada at the World Championship.

Kevin Koe

David Murdoch who lost to Canada in the Olympic Finals isn’t in the tournament as well, instead representing Scotland Ewan MacDonald who will hoping to lead Scotland to the World Championship!

World Men’s Curling Championship Tournament Betting Odds

The World’s Men Curling Championship has the odds heavily weighted to Canada to win the title, which usually would be a smart bet if they had a top team.  I don’t think Kevin Koe is the best Canadian team and if they don’t have there best team, its going to be harder to win such a tough tournament.  I mean Kevin Martin wasn’t even in the Brier that could have knocked them off, Kevin Koe lost the first match of the two in the brier play-offs but won the second.  They just don’t seem like the dominant team needed to really make Canada the heavy favourites that these odds suggest they are.

World Men’s Curling Championship Prediction

I have already stated that I don’t think Canada should be the heavy favourites that they are odds wise.

I think that China or Sweden are great bets they are both very strong teams and they could definitely beat Canada in the World Championship.

This should be a great week of Curling and despite the negativity I can’t wait to watch some great curling.  This is the World Men’s Curling Championship so get excited for it!
