Major League Baseball 2013: World Series Futures Odds

MLB Logo

Major League Baseball spring training is underway in Florida and Arizona. All 30 teams have reported, and are preparing for the upcoming 162-game campaign that lasts from April through September. Last year’s MLB World Series Champions, the damned San Francisco Giants, and among the favorites to win the World Series in 2013.

My pick — like every year — is that my beloved Cincinnati Reds will go all the way.

Oddsmakers like Bovada, OddsMaker, and JustBet, are all over the board with their odds to win the 2013 MLB World Series and the pennants. For example, a $100 wager on the Cincinnati Reds to win the World Series pays twice as much at ($1500) than it does at ($750). This is a great example of why it pays to have more than one sportsbook account — so that you can shop lines.

Obama Heavy Favorite to Win Election

Obama More Than 4-1 Favorite at Most Online Sportsbooks

Online sportsbooks have been posting President Barak Obama as an increasing favorite as election day arrives. At most online sportsbooks, Obama is today listed at more than a 4-1 favorite, including at Bovada, where he is listed as a 9-2 favorite.

A month ago, Obama was listed at -150. I got him at -200 on October 24.

It’s not too late to get in on the election action. Open your account today at Bovada and claim grab an instant 50% Free Bet Bonus on your first deposit, up to $250. They also offer online casino games, as well as online poker.




Full Tilt Poker is back online for play-money games

In case you didn’t get the email from Full Tilt Poker, they’re back online and dealing poker games. But they are offering only free money online poker for players in the United States “…until such time as there is regulation and licensing permitting this”.

When will that be? Not before 2014 in my opinion. (I also predict that it will happen at the state, not the federal, level; and that once it starts, it’ll be an avalanche with 80% of all states offering real-money online poker within a year.)

Of course, there are still several places that deal online poker games for real money to U.S. playersBovada PokerAmericas Cardroom, and Poker come to mind.

Nothing was mentioned in the email from Full Tilt Poker regarding reclaiming any money that was in your account when the site went kaput over a year ago. But I recently read an article in which the U.S. government put out a RFP, looking for an agency to handle the disbursement of funds to U.S. online poker players.
