You can win money gambling. You simply have to know some basic rules and which games to play. In this article, I will discuss how to give yourself a winning chance when gambling.If you want to win in a casino, you have to play the right games. Some people think you have the same chance to win in each game. It's simply not so. You probably want to stay away from roulette and any sort of video slot game in order to make money. Instead of playing these games, you should learn to play and stick to games such as craps, poker, and blackjack. These games have better odds for the player and give you a fighting chance to win. Blackjack is the game that gives the player the greatest advantage, as in some popular variations of the game, the player has a slight edge over the house. Any sort of new game is something you want to stay away from. The house makes these games because the make money. That's the only reason. Think about how big those casinos are. They do not make their cash by losing to people like you and me. Likewise, go in with the confidence of knowing that playing the right games can leave you …

Should Casinos Ban Successful Gamblers?

I am told that it is common practice for casinos to prohibit successful gamblers from playing. While I personally do not gamble and am opposed to the practice, I also think it is outrageous that casinos are permitted to ban winners in this way. Here's why:1. False Advertising. The implicit promise of any casino is that visitors might get lucky and win a fortune. But that promise is a lie if casinos routinely prohibit winners from playing. If winners cannot go on winning, then casinos are simply offering people a flashy way to squander their money.

  1. Preying On The Weak. One of the strongest public policy objections against gambling is that it preys on the weak. Compulsive gamblers (who are not winners) go to the casino day after day, squandering what little money they have, and the casino profits from the phenomenon. This objection is doubly strong if winners are barred from casinos. In that case, not only are casinos profiting from losers, but they are refusing to do business with anyone who is not a loser!
  2. Encouraging Elaborate Schemes. What do winners who get kicked out of casinos do? Do you think they just walk out of the casino, shrug, and go get a job? I doubt it. I have heard stories of elaborate schemes employed by such players, involving disguises, cheating devices, and travel to numerous casinos. By making life difficult for winners, casinos incentivize winners to find ways to cheat.

As I say, I would just as …

UFC 110: Betting Line and Picks Updated 2-20-2010

Heavyweights Cain Velasquez and Antonio Nogueira square off in a potential elimination bout to fight UFC Heavyweight Champ Brock Lesnar in the first fight of UFC down under in Sydney, Australia. Also on the card is potentially Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic’s last bout as an MMA fighter and an interesting bout between Michael Bisping and Pride legend Wanderlei Silva.Looking at the UFC card from a betting perspective, there are no heavy favorites and the UFC Heavyweight headline bout will be a tough bout to call. The majority of the UFC fights in Sydney look to be exciting on paper, and there could be an upset brewing in the Joe “Big Daddy” Stevenson-George Sotiropoulos. Almost every UFC card has one of those stunning upsets, the challenge is to find the right one.

**Ben Rothwell +115 vs Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic -135. Update 2-17-2010
Mirko “Cro Cop Filipovic has not impressed since coming over to the UFC and this UFC Heavyweight bout with Ben Rothwell, 30-7, could end “Cro Cop’s” career. Rothwell has not been overly impressive in his career either but he is catching “Cro Cop” at his worst. Tough to watch a legend exit the octagon is shame but that could easily happen in this bout. Small bet on Rothwell +115. Tie him into a parley if possible. Anthony Perosh has now replaced Ben Rothwell due to an injury. No bet since it is Perosh taking the fight on short notice.

Keith Jardine +120 vs Ryan Bader -140.

Cleveland, Ohio Holds Celebrity Death Pool for Gamblers: $30,000-$40,000 Winning Pot

If you are a gambler even if just for a dollar or two you've probably got in some silly betting games with your friends. For instance I've played a few myself where 3 or 4 people at a baseball game pass a 32 oz. cup around there little area where everyone puts a dollar in and each half inning one person will get a chance to see if the baseball will roll and stay on the dirt of the pitcher's mound when the athletes or umpire roll it that way. If it does the person who's chance it was wins all the money in the cup, if not everyone places another dollar in until someone does win or give it all back to everyone if it never happens. For $18 (sometimes more for extra innings) you can have some fun with your friends and people will look at you as to why you are cheering in the middle of the inning screaming at the top of your lungs, "Get on the mound"! or "Go Ball Go"!Thats small potatoes compared to a game that is in Cleveland, Ohio that not only cost $100 a month to be in, but the prize winnings are usually around $30,000-$40,000. This is not from a sporting event, playing Texas hold em', going to a casino, the lottery or any normal gambling prize. This is something morbid, something that you will either laugh at because its almost unbelievable, or you will be so disgusted you would …

2009 NFL Week 1 Predictions & Picks; Early Betting Odds & Spreads

All lines were from Sportsbook.com (8/15/2009)Pittsburgh Steelers (-5) vs. Tennessee Titans
Opening game for the defending champions in Pittsburgh should be a win for the Steelers, but it will be a close defensive battle. I’m taking the Steelers to win, but the Titans to cover the five point spread. Titans (+5), Steelers to Win. Prediction: 20-17 Steelers

New Orleans Saints (-13) vs. Detroit Lions
My first nugget of advice is for you to stay away from this game, my second is not to bet on the Saints. New Orleans has an average defense at best and even though the Lions are weak, there is no telling what will happen in this contest. I like the Lions to lose by a touchdown, but cover the spread. I like the over in this game. Lions (+13), Saints to Win. Prediction: Saints 35-28

Atlanta Falcons (-4) vs. Miami Dolphins
Matt Ryan and the Falcons will come out hot with Tony Gonzalez and an improved defense. Atlanta (-4). Prediction: 28-17 Falcons

Carolina Panthers (-1) vs. Philadelphia Eagles
This game could go either way, and obviously Vegas odds-makers agree judging by the -1 line in favor of the home team. I think when the season is over the Eagles will have the better record, but I like the Panthers to win their opener thanks to the running game. Panthers (-1). Prediction: 35-27 Panthers.

Baltimore Ravens (-9) vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Ravens are tough, but will not beat the Chiefs by 9+ points …

Betting Pros Point to Dewyze

Lee Dewyze seems to be getting it done. Possibly proving that generations never get tired of Bob Seger-like vocals, Dewyze is the latest installment of 'regular guy from the suburbs resembles Nickelback's lead' or whatever.The point is this, four professional odds makers publishing on the Internet point to Dewyze as the best bet among the last four standing. Crystal Bowersox is slightly losing her touch, they indicate by numbers, and has dropped back closer to Casey James and Michael Lynche. Crystal still enjoys some length -in terms of odds -from those two guys, at the end of the day.

It seems that as Dewyze grows in confidence, and continues to pick songs wisely from different themes and genres each week, he grows in the hearts of voters. In a recent episode the judges exuberantly proclaimed that if he kept it up, continued to look like he was having fun, showed confidence and delivered a few more original performances, he "could win this thing."

So far the people who make their living doing research on behalf of the betting public agree. If he pulls it off, Lee would make yet another Mid-western artist on the top of the Idol world -following winners from Arkansas and Kansas City. The author, a Missouri graduate, would be proud.

Chicagoans are sometimes known for the opposite of what many New Yorkers, or Bostoners, love to display: bravado. Some call it arrogance. Maybe that's part of why America seems to be wising up to the kid …

Gamblers Rate Jim Webb and Mitt Romney as Favorites in the Vice Presidential Sweepstakes

The Internet gambling site Intrade has U.S. Senator Jim Webb (D-VA) and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney pegged as the favorites to win their parties’ Vice Presidential nominations, as of June 9, 2008. Former First Lady Hillary Clinton, who last week led the field prospective Democratic running mates, has slipped to second place.Jim Webb is favored by 20.2% of the gamblers who buy shares or “futures” in a candidate’s prospects, while Hillary Clinton — who had led Webb last week by a margin of 21% to 19.7% — has declined to 15.1% after her graceless exit from the Presidential campaign. After Barack Obama had crossed the threshold of delegates and superdelegates needed to clinch the nomination on Tuesday, June 3rd, a recalcitrant Clinton refused to concede that night and throw her support to Obama, waiting four days before throwing in the towel. It was widely felt that she wanted to continue on to the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for the last week of August, and bulldoze her way onto the ticket as Barack Obama’s running mate. Coupled with her egregious performance on the campaign trail, in which she claimed Republican nominee John McCain was more qualified than Obama to be president and used race-baiting as a campaign tactic, it seems unlikely that the junior Senator from New York will the 2008 Democratic nominee in the November general election. Still, she is one nag that bettors still are putting money on.

In the 2004 election cycle, Intrade’ users correctly …
