The Not So Complicated Satellite Camp Debate

June 10, 2016

If you’ve been paying any attention to college football the past few months then you have most certainly heard about the never-ending debate over whether satellite camps will be allowed or not. Before I break down the argument for and against them, let me tell you what they are. Satellite camps are camps held in certain regions of the country (particularly the south) where a large group of high school…

Cavs Trounce Warriors: What’s Love Got to Do With It?

June 9, 2016

After two dismal showings in Golden State, the Cleveland Cavaliers bounced back in Game 3 with a resounding win. I can’t say I was really surprised by this outcome even though I did think the Warriors were going to win Game 3 because I was very hesitant about that prediction. Yet if you told me the Cavaliers would win by thirty points, I would’ve said you’re dreaming. You could tell it was…

The All-NHL Team

June 9, 2016

With the Stanley Cup Finals all but decided already, there really is not too much left to discuss. The Penguins have a commanding 3-1 series lead and have dominated the Sharks for most of the series. Were you wondering the last time a team came back from being down 3-1 in the Stanley Cup Finals? It was 1942. While it would be incredibly exciting to watch the Sharks come back,…

Penguins Ready to Close Out at Home

June 9, 2016

Ticket prices for Thursday’s Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals in Pittsburgh are skyrocketing. There’s a simple reason why: the Penguins have an opportunity to win the Stanley Cup at home for the first time in franchise history. Not only that, but the Penguins can be the first Pittsburgh team to win a championship at home since Bill Mazeroski’s walk-off grand slam lifted the Pirates over the Yankees in Game…

A Word on the Profitability of Spread Betting in the NHL Playoffs

June 8, 2016

If you’re thinking about betting the NHL playoffs in the future, know this: when in doubt, take the underdog with the spread. Before getting into some statistics that support this notion, I want to explain the theory first. The NHL playoffs are widely regarded as the most competitive postseason in the four major sports, and it’s really not up for debate. For instance, only four of the past sixteen President’s Cup trophy…

Is Fighting Good For Baseball?

June 8, 2016

Not even halfway through the season and baseball fans have already gotten to witness two fights. The most recent broke out last night as the Royals’ hard throwing Yordano Ventura plunked Orioles’ Manny Machado in the ribs. Machado wasted no time and beelined it toward Ventura with a purpose. Although I give Ventura style points for his casual drop-the-hat-and-glove-and-square-up move, I give Machado the win for being able to land a…

Chin Up, Cleveland: There’s Hope with the Indians

June 8, 2016

The Cleveland Cavaliers are in big trouble. After two blowout losses in Games 1 & 2 of the NBA Finals, it’s hard to imagine the Cavs winning four out of the next five games in order to win the title. That’s why many betting websites now have the Golden State Warriors as monster favorites to win it all at -1,000. Other sites like Fivethirtyeight give the Cavs a mere 11%…
