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

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.

Is Fighting Good For Baseball?

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.

Kimbo Slice (1974-2016)

Professional fighter Kimbo Slice has passed away at the age of 42 due to heart complications. Believe it or not, I’m probably one of the handful of people who followed Kevin Ferguson’s (Kimbo Slice) career from start to finish. I owe Kimbo Slice a great deal for introducing me to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. It all started when I caught wind about this “internet street fighter” who was KO-ing…

How Jose Quintana graduated from QSU (Quality Start University)

There has been an ongoing joke in my fantasy baseball league for a few years about Jose Quintana and his consistent mediocrity. The joke is basically to make fun of whoever owns him, because most of the owners in the league think he sucks. I take offense to such criticism though, as I’ve chosen to have Quintana on my team a couple of times. I certainly would not have drafted…
