    The ESPYs (07/16/13)

    The ESPY Awards odds and ends. Who will win Best Male Athlete? How many awards will LeBron James collect? Will there be any upsets according to the odds?


    The ESPYS, Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award, will be televised live Wednesday, July 17th at 9 pm ET. Jon Hamm, Mad Men's Don Draper, will host the 2013 ESPYS.

    Hamm, joined by top athletes and entertainers, will celebrate the best sport stories of the last year. Including the year's best plays, biggest upsets and most outstanding performances.

    ESPN holds the ESPYS on the Wednesday after the MLB All-Star game because it's the deadest time in sports. None of the four major American sports have games making it the perfect time to corral all of the top athletes.

    However, the ESPYS are generally boring. The commercials for the award show tend to be funnier than the show itself. Last year, reruns of The Big Bang Theory and Family Guy had better ratings than the ESPYS.

    To solve this problem the good folks at Bovada.lv have provide prop bets for each of the major awards. We are not saying wagering on an event makes it more enjoyable (ok, of course we are), but it does not hurt either.

    04/24/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now in full swing, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides, totals, and run lines have all been profitable to date, generating a total of $580 for an average $50 bettor. There are have been a total of nine "normal" or better positions year-to-date, and those positions are a sparkling 8-1 (88.9%), producing $393 in total profits. There is a ton of variance in baseball and there will be ups-and-downs along the way, but the early returns on the Predictalator's baseball projections are promising.

    The NBA Playoffs tipped off this week and the Predictalator is off to a stellar start. With a full season's worth of data to work with, the Predictalator has historically fared very well in the postseason across all sports, and this year has been no different. NBA playoff sides are 9-7 (56.3%) ATS, while NBA playoff totals are 15-9 (62.5%) through Sunday's action. A $50 bettor would have amassed $401 in total profits through the first week of the postseason alone.
