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…

It’s Duck Hunting Season In Mississippi

It’s November in the Mississippi Delta!  It seems that each month has its own theme, October – Breast Cancer Awareness, November – Thanksgiving, December – Christmas.  But for those who live, work and play in the Mississippi Delta, November is a time of dramatic change.   We lose an hour of day light as we set our clocks back an hour and the lush green fields of summer return to their natural state as the farmers end their harvest and prepare the land for next years new beginning. These changes all lead to the real theme of November here in the…

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…
