  • Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend

    Triumph and Tragedy Preakness Weekend Posted by Betonline Team on 5/25/2016 3:47:58 AM Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a cel

    Many of the joyful fans that filled Pimlico Race Course were in a celebratory mood. They watched Exaggerator pull away from third place finisher and Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist, spoiling his bid for the Triple Crown.

    However, near the celebration and cheers was a tragedy. Two horses were dead from earlier races and the only people that knew were race organizers and fans who got the news off their cell phones.

    Homeboykris, a nine-year-old gelding that ran in the 2010 Kentucky Derby, collapsed after having his photo taken in the winner’s circle after placing first in the opening race of the day. In the fourth race, four-year-old filly Pramedya collapsed on the track with a fractured left leg and was euthanized on the track. The long bone between the ankle and knee was shattered and there was an open would. Doctors determined surgery could not help the horse.

    Her jockey, Daniel Centeno, fractured his right clavicle after being thrown to the turf. The track was inspected after the fall but officials said everything was fine. There were no incidents reported on the muddy track during the Preakness.

    Those who do not like horseracing made stinging comments about how cruel the sport is. If Sea World is shutting down its whale exhibit and the Ringling Brothers Circus it’s elephant shows, then why not abandon horseracing?

    It is a silly argument but extreme comments are commonplace during the Internet era. Horseracing will live on because it is a multi-billion dollar industry. Race organizers called it a tragic day but the show must go on. Athletes have died on the field and courts in football, basketball and hockey, yet no one screams to shut those sports down.

  • Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl

    Seattle suffered a humbling loss at home last week to St. Louis but the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl are worlds better than what their 2-4 start to the season suggested.Seattle suffered a humbling loss at home last week to St. Louis but the Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl are worlds better than what their 2-4 start to the season suggested.

    Pete Carroll’s team faces the possibility of finishing the regular season with two straight losses visiting NFC West champion Arizona on Sunday. The Cardinals are favored by 6.5 points at the SportsBetting.ag Sportsbook, but they may rest most of their starters especially if the game is out of hand in the second half.

    Even with a loss to Arizona, Seattle would finish 9-7, which means Russell Wilson and Co. would finish a respectable 7-3 in their last 10 regular season games. The Seahawks most likely will be the No. 6 seed that will face the NFC North champion, Green Bay or Minnesota, in the first round of the playoffs next week.

    Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl

    Seattle has the third best odds (+400) to win the NFC title behind Arizona (+160) and Carolina (+175) at the sportsbook.

    The biggest key to the Seahawks’ turnaround is that Wilson is operating from the pocket efficiently. In a four-game stretch recently, he completed 81 of 99 pass attempts for 1,094 yards with 15 touchdowns and no interceptions when he stays in the pocket. In his fourth season, at the age of 27, is at his best. he’s reopened the conversation on what his ceiling is as an NFL player. Given that Wilson is still making plays with his legs, defenses are having all kinds of problems coming up with ways to attack him.

    The improvement for Seattle is directly related to the development of its offensive line, which was much maligned earlier in the season. Since Week 8, Wilson has been sacked on 3.4 percent of his dropbacks, the fourth-best mark among quarterbacks. In the first seven weeks, that number was 11.7 percent (32nd). Wilson has done a better job of setting the protections and getting the Seahawks in the right look before the snap. The Seahawks have cut down on the negative plays that were killing the rhythm on offense earlier in the season.

    Plenty of talk has occurred this season about how the Seahawks’ defense doesn’t look the same as it has in previous seasons. But since Kam Chancellor returned in Week 3, the Seahawks are allowing 15.82 points per game. No defense in the NFL has allowed fewer points during that span. Richard Sherman has played at a high level. There will be question marks about whether they can handle high-powered passing attacks, but the defense is in good shape going down the stretch.

  • Bournemouth versus Newcastle

    This weekend kicks off at 12.45 where Bournemouth versus Newcastle travel the length of the country to face Newcastle where they’ll be hoping to secure 3 points after suffering through 5 winless games two of which being 5-1 defeats.This weekend kicks off at 12.45 where Bournemouth versus Newcastle travel the length of the country to face Newcastle where they’ll be hoping to secure 3 points after suffering through 5 winless games two of which being 5-1 defeats. The Magpies have also seen a tough start to the season which doesn’t look to improve and will likely see the team fight the relegation battle all season. With both teams needing to secure the full 3 points it should make for an interesting game however, the likely outcome being a draw which is currently priced at 5/2 though edging as favourites to take the win are Bournemouth at 5/4.

    Leicester are having a great season so far with a lot of credit being taken by their star striker Vardy – as a team they have only failed to score in 1 match from their last 29 in all competitions, with this run stretching back to March. In that time only Chelsea and Arsenal have come away from the King Power Stadium with a win making for another tough fixture for Watford. Saying this, they arguably produced their best performance of the season in overcoming the in-form West Ham 2-0 last weekend. Leicester are likely to take the win here and are currently priced at 17/20 with bet365 – add Vardy to score first in a wincast to make this a more attractive 4/1.
