MLB Betting – National League Pennant

We recently passed the one-third portion of the Major League Baseball season, time to have a look once again at the MLB betting odds to win the National League pennant. When last we checked in, it was the Philadelphia Phillies’ to lose. Well guess what? They’re not even leading their own division. While they remain the favorites long term, this thing is wide open, so let’s check out the Sports Betting MLB odds on the NL title.

The Phillies odds at Sports Betting still have them favored to reach a third straight World Series at 5 to 2. However, there are a variety of contenders nipping on their heels. For starters, the Tony LaRussa-led St. Cardinals odds aren’t too far behind Philly’s odds. The Cards are 3 to 1 to get back to the World Series for the first time since 2006.

But there are a whole host of other viable candidates to come out of the National League. Over in the west, the Los Angeles Dodgers odds closely follow those of the Braves. L.A. is 4 to 1 to make the World Series. Manager Joe Torre has brought a certain level of legitimacy to the Dodgers with baseball betting experts.

Meanwhile, the team leading the Phils in the NL East is the Atlanta Braves. Bobby Cox and the Braves are currently listed at 7 to 2 MLB odds to win the NL pennant.

Next up, how about wagering on the Cincinnati Reds odds to win the NL title? The Reds are 8 to 1 shots to return to the championship since 1990. Cincy is waging a tough NL Central battle with the Cardinals at the moment. The fact that they are significantly trailing the Cardinals in the odds department means bettors aren’t buying into them as a contender just yet.

Looking for a longshot? How about the San Diego Padres? They’ve been in an NL West dog fight all season with the Dodgers. However, Sports Betting has them listed as 18 to 1 shots to win the NL pennant. A $100 MLB betting wager on the Padres gives you terrific value should they come home with the coveted league championship.

Utah Joins Pac 10; College Football Conference Shuffle Hushes

It has been a hectic couple of weeks for college football betting handicappers. On Monday, it looked like the Big 12 might not exist as the Texas Longhorns and their cavalcade were expected to be moving to the Pac 10, leaving Kansas, Kansas State, Baylor and Iowa State in limbo. And that was on the heels of Boise State shifting to the Mountain West, Nebraska moving to the Big Ten and Colorado leaving for the Pac 10.

Now that the week is over, the Big 12 is still intact and it seems like the dust has settled after one last move.

The latest – and likely final switch, for now – is the Utah Utes joining the Pac 10 starting in the 2011 season. It’s another solid addition by the Pac 10 and one that should definitely make their conference stronger.

The Utes have been a BCS-buster a couple of times this decade and are the only team from a non-BCS conference to make it to the BCS twice. For the school, the invitation is a big win as betting fans know they will get far more credibility playing in the Pac 10 than they did beating on weak teams in the Mountain West.

Speaking of the Mountain West, losing Utah is a huge blow just as it looked like BYU and Utah were really starting to generate some national attention as a rivalry and they were expecting to add Boise State to the mix. Instead of having three schools with BCS potential, they are back to the two and overall have made a lateral move this offseason.

The Utes no longer have to worry about being an at-large team as the Pac10 has an automatic BCS berth. At the same time. the sportsbook odds makers know that Utah will have a much tougher time qualifying for the BCS now that their schedule will stiffen significantly.

For now, it looks like the conference movement has quieted down and if there is more, it will likely surround a Notre Dame move some time next year.

NBA Finals Betting: Lakers Won Second In a Row Overall Sixteenth Title

Los Angeles Lakers Won The Second Straight NBA Championship and overall 16th title. The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Boston Celtics 83-79 in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals to win the championship on Thursday, June 17, 2010 at STAPLES Center, Los Angeles, CA.

Despite taking the title though, the Lakers failed to cover as 7-point home faves and the Total, which was set at 186.5, went Under.

Kobe Bryant was named NBA Finals MVP and was awarded the Bill Russell MVP award, finishing Game 7 with 23-points, 15 rebounds and a pair of assists but he also went only 6 of 24 from the field.

“I wanted it so bad, and sometimes when you want it so bad, it slips away from you,” Kobe told the AP after the game.

“My guys picked me up.”

And that was indeed the case as forward Ron Artest chipped in with 20-points, Pau Gasol contributed 19 and Derek Fisher added 10.

Prior to the start of the championship, the Lakers were listed as -170 in series price betting and the Celtics were +150 underdogs.
