NBA Free Agent Period Ushers In New Season Of Betting
The NBA season ended with disappointment for many fans who were rooting against the Miami Heat. Now, fans and bettors alike have turned their attention to the start of free agency, which officially begins on Sunday.Some of the biggest names in the sport are expected to be making their decisions early in the free agency process. Deron Williams is the most coveted player on the market, and he has narrowed his choice down to the New Jersey Nets and Dallas Mavericks. Which of those teams wins his services will determine the betting odds for the upcoming season.New Jersey appears to be the frontrunner, and if the Nets are able to sign Williams and lure Dwight Howard out of Orlando, they suddenly would move to the top of the betting odds for the upcoming season. Jason Kidd is rumored to be following Williams to New Jersey.If Williams makes a last minute decision to return home to Texas, the Mavericks would suddenly become the favorites in the Western Conference, joining Oklahoma City and San Antonio. Williams is set to meet with both the Nets and Mavericks on Monday, with a decision coming soon after.Other free agents that could affect the betting odds for next year include Ray Allen and Steve Nash. Allen is being courted heavily by the Heat. Kevin Garnett, Allen’s teammate the past few seasons, has already said he will resign with the Celtics. Boston has expressed interest in keeping Allen.Nash has proclaimed for the first time in recent weeks that he can see himself playing somewhere other than Phoenix next season. The Knicks are a possibility for Nash, as are the Mavericks. If Dallas loses out on Williams, sources claim they will turn their full attention to signing Nash.Two teams that will not be making many moves this off-season are the Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. The Lakers have actively sought to trade Pau Gasol before the draft this past week, but were unable to complete a deal.The Spurs are coming off a season in which they went to the Western Conference finals after not losing a game in the first two rounds of the playoffs. San Antonio won the first two games of the finals, then were promptly swept by the Thunder over the final four games of the series.

Bodog Founder Calvin Ayre Indicted
In a follow up to Homeland Security seizing the Bodog.com domain name, a federal grand jury in Baltimore, MD., has now indicted Bodog Entertainment Group, four Canadians involved with said group and Bodog founder Calvin Ayre. The indictments cover two charges stemming from June 2006 to January 2012, conducting an Illegal gambling business and money laundering conspiracy. Federal prosecutors allege that the group conspired to pay over $100 Million in sports gambling winnings through processors located in the United States. Calvin Ayre posted this statement through his blog; “I see this as abuse of the US criminal justice system for the commercial gain of large US corporations. It is clear that the online gaming industry is legal under international law and in the case of these documents is it also clear that the rule of law was not allowed to slow down a rush to try to win the war of public opinion. These documents were filed with Forbes magazine before they were filed anywhere else and were drafted with the consumption of the media as a primary objective. We will all look at this and discuss the future with our advisors, but it will not stop my many business interests globally that are unrelated to anything in the US and it will not stop my many charity projects through my foundation.

Massachusetts Compromise Casino Bill Blocked by Governor
Massachusetts lawmakers succeeded in crafting a compromise casino gambling bill, but Governor Deval Patrick says he won After a divisive argument between the legislative houses in Massachusetts almost derailed this year’s chances for expanded gambling in the state, it now appears the governor may prevent the bill from becoming law. Deval Patrick told reporters he won’t sign the casino bill as currently structured.Patrick says he needs lawmakers to amend the bill, which permits the creation of three resort casinos and two racinos at existing race tracks. Patrick wants an amendment added eliminating the racino provision and allowing only the stand-alone casinos.While the casino operators would be subject to a competitive bidding process, the racino locations would be assigned to existing tracks, one of which is Suffolk Downs. The House version of the bill, guided by Speaker Robert DeLeo, whose district contains the track, specified the need for racinos.”I’m not going to be a part of no bid contracts, that’s precisely the kind of thing that folks voted to change,” said Patrick. “That kind of inside deal that the fix would be in for some powerful interest.”The Senate version had licensed only the casinos, but DeLeo forced the racinos into the compromise version, playing chicken with a deadline of last week until the Senate side blinked. Now, it is highly doubtful the Speaker will allow any casino bill to go forward unless a Suffolk Downs racino is included. Published on August 9, 2010 by K.C.Carmichael

EU Online Gambling Vote Coming Soon
There has been a lot of discussion and some disagreement amongst members of the European Parliament regarding the question of online gambling legislation. There are different opinions as to whether the European Union member states should continue to legislate their own online gambling, or whether Internet gambling in the EU should be regulated and legislated by the European Commission. A few months ago, in March, Jürgen Creutzmann, a liberal member of the European Parliament from Germany, issued a Green Paper regarding the issue of European online gambling legislation. Creutzmann supports closer cooperation of EU states with regards to Internet gambling legislation, however, he does not feel that there has to be single law for all Internet gambling. Jürgen Creutzmann had the following to say: “Member states alone are not in a position to regulate all areas of Internet gambling. Much expanded cooperation between national regulatory bodies is therefore essential.” There have already been many responses to the Green Paper regarding the relevant issues about the European Union’s online gambling legislation. A vote will be taking place on 19th September 2011. If there is agreement on how the decision regarding online gambling should be worded, there will be another vote taking place on 12th October 2011. This second vote will then ratify the European Union’s online gambling legislation. There are, however, very strong arguments on both sides of the issue of online gambling regulation for the European Union member states. There are those that feel the industry need not be regulated by the European Commission, and others who feel that there should be serious restrictions imposed on players, including online gambling limits, warning messages, and more. Still others believe that each member state should be allowed to control its own online gambling legislation.

Don’t Gamble at Night
Ever notice a pattern of big loss during playing poker or blackjack at night? Scientists have noticed this and are probing why gamblers lose big time during the night. Their first culprit was lack of sleep. Now gamblers have become favorable subjects for sleep research to prove if really it is sleep. Some players may have noticed making unsound decisions during a night of gaming. They never realized it until the game is far over. They could perceive a bad hand as worthy of a raise only to lose the bet later on. Such phenomenon might also be perceptive by those gambling online. Exhaustion will upset one’s thinking. Experts say that not having enough sleep makes one prone to accidents. History is witness of such statements with the accident at Chernobyl for example which happened, you guessed it, at night. For gamblers that means accidentally raising the bet without thorough thinking. For those online, it could be as simple as clicking for the wrong virtual poker room. In an experiment to test the result of sleep deprivation on decision-making two types of gambler were pitted against each other. One group was comprised of gamblers who barely had rest and the other who rested well enough and refreshed. The result of the study revealed that when sleep is cut short, gamblers go into jeopardous, high-paying options. By studying further the brains of these gamblers with scanners (MRI), a certain part of the brain becomes more active compared to those seen in well-rested subjects. The scientists added that one’s adeptness to learn from past mistakes is arrested. Losing does not take its toll until later when one’s mind clears. The gambler is not deeply involved with the bad consequences in holding risky cards. That makes matters worse. When such learning is arrested, the brain is only pushing for high stakes and is gambling and not folding even in cases of a bad hand. One’s brain becomes only focused on the gains and not the reality of one’s hand. This muddled thinking is similar to those experiencing insomnia that wake up in the middle of the night confused. The good thing is that these gamblers are choosing decks that are of great advantage to them. And so the scientists are now advising gamblers to carry watches or be conscious of the time so as to rest after hours and hours of play. Most importantly just don’t neglect how important sleep is to a gambler. This sleep study on gamblers has shed a new light on the perils of playing when tired.
