Sports Betting on Baseball

When sports bettors turn to baseball, point spreads, or a "run line," are available just as they are in football or basketball. If the Reds are playing the Cardinals in St. Louis, with the Reds listed at +1.5, then Cardinals bettors need them to win by two runs or more, while Reds bettors win if Cincinnati wins the game or loses by only one run. More commonly, though, baseball bettors focus on the money line. The run line isn't as popular as point spreads in football and basketball. You might see the Cardinals listed at -130 and the Reds at…

Sports Betting and Parlays

There are times sports bettors think they've zeroed in on multiple winners and are tempted to bet parlays -- betting multiple teams, with all required to win for the bettor to collect. The temptation is in the payoffs. Let's use parlays on point-spread bets as an example. Point-spread bets or over/unders pay at even-money, minus the 10 percent vigorish. Win three $11 point spread bets, and you win a total of $30. What if you made just one $10 bet on a three-team parlay instead? Odds may vary from book to book, but at the Nevada books that are the…

Place Your Bets For The Big Game In Tunica

February 3, 2019 – Super Bowl Sunday, It’s been the most anticipated day of the year here in Tunica since the US Supreme Court cleared the way for legalized sports betting this past May.  Luckily, Mississippi had already legalized sports wagering in anticipation of the courts ruling and Tunica’s casino resort properties began accepting bets at the start of the college football season. The opening and first bets placed at each of Tunica’s six sports books were all landmark events and cause for celebration but, the biggest event was yet to come – the Super Bowl. When the Los Angeles Rams and…

Take Refuge on Thanksgiving Day, Escape to Tunica

Every year, as Thanksgiving Day approaches, I begin to savor the thought of loads of food. However, my dreams of turkey and pecan pies are quickly disturbed by visions of my nieces and nephews running through the house screaming, my father’s suggestions that he worked harder for a living “back in the day,” my sister’s emotional outbursts about not being mom’s favorite, and my grandma’s incessant requests for me to sing her favorite song, “Islands in the Stream” (I am no Kenny Rogers). So, this year I devised a plan of escape during the not-so-pleasant variety hour that surely happens in…

Stories from the Casino Floor: Triple Double Bonus Poker

There's nothing quite like snatching victory from the jaws of defeat to make you feel good about a day in the casino. One big win at the end that erases previous losses and makes you a winner doesn't happen anywhere near often enough, but it feels great when it does. Paul, a video poker player I've known for years, had one of those days with a nice win on Triple Double Bonus Poker after a day when Bonus Poker had grinded down his bankroll. All were 25-cent, single-hand games. "I budget $100 for the day," he said. "Bonus Poker is…
