Manchester United sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez

Sportsbook - Manchester United sign Mexico striker Javier Hernandez: Hernandez, 21, will be formally announced as a United player on July 1 provided that an application for a work permit is successful.

It is thought that United will initially pay Chivas, the Mexican club, between £6 million and £8 million, although the fee could increase substantially depending on the player’s success.

As part of the deal, United will play in a match to mark the opening of the new 45,000-seat Chivas Stadium in Guadalajara in the summer.

Nicknamed “Chicharito”, or Little Sweet Pea, Hernández comes from a rich line of footballers. His father, Javier Sr, who was known as “Sweet Pea”, played in the 1986 World Cup finals for Mexico and his grandfather, Tomás Balcázar, represented the country in the 1954 tournament.

The starters’ 4.77 ERA ranked 12th in the NL last year, and John Maine and Jonathon Niese(notes) combined for a 5.73 ERA in two losses after Santana spurred a 7-1 win in Monday’s season opener.

The Tigers are hoping Damon can provide some of that power he displayed with New York after dealing Curtis Granderson(notes) to the Yankees as part of a three-way trade.

2010 Golf Betting Predictions, Odds & Picks

It’s time to start getting serious about golf betting with the world’s best golfers competing this weekend in the first Major of the PGA season, the 2010 Masters at the Augusta National Golf Club.

All the talk this week has been about four time champion Tiger Woods making his return to the game, but I like some other golfers to take the spot light away and get it done this weekend. Down below are my predictions and betting odds on the golfers who I believe have a great shot at putting on the green jacket this Sunday.

Retief Goosen (+2000) – Look for the South African to rebound from last year’s performance in a big way. After placing in the top 20 in his last seven Masters appearance, Goosen missed last year’s cut with a disappointing score of +2.

Over the last eight years at the Master Tournament, Goosen has finished in the top 5 four times including two 3rd place finishes in 2005 and 2006, and two 2nd place finishes in 2002 where he shot an impressive 9 under and his most recent in 2007 where his +3 performance was good for a second place tie with Tiger Woods. Goosen has gotten off to a great start in 2010 where he has finished in the top 10 in five of his seven PGA events this season. I think this 41 year old has a great shot at finally putting on that green jacket at this year’s Masters, Bet on Retief Goosen +2000 at sportsbook to get it done this weekend and capture his fourth Major Championship.

UFC 112 Betting: Frankie Edgar vs. BJ Penn Pick

Bet on UFC 112 lightweight championship match between defending champion BJ Penn Pick and Frankie Edgar.


I’m not so sure Frankie Edgar at +550 has the same chances against BJ Penn (-800) as Maia does against Silva. I’m skipping this one myself as far as the underdog wagering goes. Aside from that, I expect Edgar will put up a good fight as he is a good wrestler and a solid well-rounded fighter. Overall this should be a good match. I expect Penn will take it before the championship rounds.

UFC 112: Anderson Silva vs Demian Maia Pick

Watch UFC invincible Championship Match between Anderson Silva vs Demian Maia Pick today at UFC112. This Event starts at 1PM ET/10AM PT and replays at 10PM ET/7PM PT.

For the sports betting public, there are some good underdog chances at decent underdog odds. Many online sportsbook have Anderson Silva at –800 and Demian Maia at +550. Considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world, Anderson Silva is the obvious favorite. Maia’s best chances are on the ground and he hopes to get Silva down there so he can start to work his world-class jiujitsu in hopes of getting the upset. Silva could end the fight early if Maia can’t get close enough to get the takedown, as Silva could simply destroy Maia as he tries to close the distance. Maia does stand a real chance though if he can get Silva on the mat. If you like the dogs and absolutely must bet on the title fight, then I’d go with a nominal wager on Maia at +550. Silva at -800 doesn’t provide any value.

Mumbai Indians MI vs Kings XI Punjab KXIP Live Score

Sportsbook - Its the match between the top team in points table of IPL3, Mumbai Indians and bottom team Kings XI Punjab in the 41st match of 2010 IPLT20 on Friday, 9th April, 2010 at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali, Chandigarh in a night game and timing will be 14:30 GMT, 8:00 PM IST.

Mumbai Indians lost the last game but they are comfortably place at top of the points table and 1 more will insure their berth in semis. Thd reason to worry for them in the manner they collapsed in the last game after Tendulkar retired hurt and the middle order should take more responsibility.Sportsbook

Kings XI Punjab are knocked out of the tournament and the way they played so far is disappointing, no proper planning no commitment. They have to reorganise themselves and play for some pride in the remaining matches specially Sanga and Yuvraj.

MLB Betting : San Diego Padres Vs Colorado Rockies MLB Picks

The Rockies were one of the NL’s top home teams in 2009, and they’ll look to get off to a good start at Coors Field on Friday afternoon with the first of three against the San Diego Padres. MLB Betting

Colorado (1-2) went 51-30 in Denver last season en route to making the playoffs as the wild card, and it figures to rely on one of the league’s premier home-field advantages again in 2010.

San Diego will send Clayton Richard (9-5, 4.41) to the hill hoping he can progress from a solid two months (5-2, 4.08 ERA) after coming over in the trade that sent Jake Peavy to the Chicago White Sox.

Richard faced the Rockies twice, going 0-0 with a 4.09 ERA.

Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia Pick:

For the sports betting lines public, there are some good underdog chances at decent underdog odds. Many online sportsbooks have Anderson Silva at –800 and Demian Maia at +550. Considered by many to be the best pound-for-pound MMA fighter in the world, Anderson Silva is the obvious favorite. Maia’s best chances are on the ground and he hopes to get Silva down there so he can start to work his world-class jiujitsu in hopes of getting the upset. Silva could end the fight early if Maia can’t get close enough to get the takedown, as Silva could simply destroy Maia as he tries to close the distance. Maia does stand a real chance though if he can get Silva on the mat. If you like the dogs and absolutely must bet on the title fight, then I’d go with a nominal wager on Maia at +550. Silva at -800 doesn’t provide any value.

Frankie Edgar vs. BJ Penn Pick:

I’m not so sure Frankie Edgar at +550 has the same chances against BJ Penn (-800) as Maia does against Silva. I’m skipping this one myself as far as the underdog wagering goes. Aside from that, I expect Edgar will put up a good fight as he is a good wrestler and a solid well-rounded fighter. Overall this should be a good match. I expect Penn will take it before the championship rounds.

UFC 112 Picks:

The other dog bet that I mentioned last week that was worth considering was Renzo Gracie over Matt Hughes. Gracie is at +325 to Hughes’ -450. There’s a lot of talk about this fight going the distance and Hughes pulling off the UD as Gracie will challenge him on the ground but Hughes will gain the victory by controlling from the top position. I agree with some of this except that I’m giving the nod to Gracie for the underdog victory. Hughes’ record and experience will keep him working for top control and possibly going for the submission or a TKO from punches from the top. This is where Gracie lives though, and I expect Gracie to be able to withstand Hughes’ efforts and sweep for position and work the submissions to ultimately win the match. Gracie is worth a shot here.

A solid lightweight bout on the main card will feature British fighter Terry Etim (-160) against the well-rounded Brazilian Rafael dos Anjos (+130). The bout finds excitement in that both fighters are looking for some recognition in order to move up in the lightweight division. Both fighters seem to excel on the ground with Etim possessing the ability to finish more fights there as opposed to controlling the fights from that position as dos Anjos does. I’d give the edge in stand up to Etim as well, but I expect most of the fight will take place on the mat with Etim gaining the victory.

The remaining fight on the main card for UFC: Invincible in Abu Dhabi is Kendall Groves against Mark Munoz. While I like Munoz and I think -160 for him as opposed to Groves at +130 is a fair line for this match up, I’m favoring Groves. While Munoz is a top-level wrestler, I expect Groves’ reach and jiujitsu will ultimately earn him the victory on Saturday night. I’m sticking by my pick from last week and restating that I like Groves.

My quick picks for the rest of the UFC 112: Invincible card on Saturday are Davis, Gunderson, Osipczak, Johnson, Veach and Madsen. The only thing I’ve got to say about those is that Madsen better pull it off.

Good luck with your MMA picks.
