The Toughest Competitor in Sports Today
by Vegas Sports Informer - 11/06/2006

You are probably thinking the toughest competitor today is a boxer, hockey player, football player, or heck, maybe a professional wrestler. But he's none of the above. This competitor is in a league of his own. He strikes fear into his opponents' hearts, his name alone causes all others in his field to give up hope for their own glory. The toughest competitor today that I know is Japan's Takeru Kobayashi, The International Federation of Competitive Eating (IFOCE) star among stars, the champion of Competitive Eating.

Move over football bettors, the reality TV gambling hit started yesterday. ABC's mega TV hit "Dancing with the Stars" airs on Tuesday nights.

Athletes Betting Big Bucks - Not A Microcosm of Betting Public
by Robert Ferringo - 09/01/2006

In my Heaven there is one room in which I have a seat at a poker table across from Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley and John Daly. A young, scantily clad Janet Gretzky is tending bar and handling the chips. Some Laker Girls are dancing in cages above the room while a group of Cowboys cheerleaders rip body shots off one another on velvet couches.

Gambling, Goodlatte and Governmental Authoritarianism
by Robert Ferringo - 07/13/2006

This week legislation passed in the House of Representatives that would cripple online casinos and criminalize Internet gambling. The Republican sponsored bill is an obvious ploy by members of Congress during an election year, but it still poses a threat to the entire industry. Now, you can either sit on the sidelines complaining about what may happen or you can get in the fight and make some moves to ensure Internet freedom.

Enjoy the Annual Hot Dog Contest Without the Heartburn
by Jeremy Martin - 07/03/2006

If bowlers and golfers can be considered 'athletes,' then these guys deserve their kudos as well. What other sport requires you to spend two hours on the toilet after a competition?

Oddsmakers Tag Hicks as the Next American Idol
by Mike Hayes - 05/24/2006

If Simon Cowell and the oddsmakers have this one right it's a foregone conclusion that Taylor Hicks will be crowned the next American Idol. If they are proven wrong, however, bettors can still get a nice price on Katharine McPhee.

by Mike Hayes - 03/09/2006

Oscar Awards Betting
by Robert Ferringo - 02/20/2006

The way I see it, I spent at least $80 on crappy movies last year - both renting and going to the theatre. I owe it too myself to try to win that back on the Oscars. Even though Oscar Awards betting seems like a whimsically, off-the-cuff thing to do that doesn't mean that there isn't decent value and plenty of money to be made.

by Stal Herz - 02/14/2006

So, the office pool is heating up again with Oscar picks, but if you truly want to get hardcore and have some malicious fun, how about betting on the ultimate shame of the Hollywood elite: The Razzies. Bodog has posted 2006 Razzie Awards odds, and these stinkers are ripe for the picking.

How the Media Creates Sports History
by Stal Herz - 02/09/2006

Perhaps one of the reasons that sports is such a huge part of our social conscious is the fact that each game is recorded, documented and filed away. If you wished to, you could see, on video, six months of each year lived by Barry Bonds. You could watch the video of the skinny kid coming up with the Bucs who was finally going to be the one who set the standard for a 40/40 season. You could watch as time changed and history evolved.

Prop Culture: Survivor Guatemala Betting
by Chris, the Impaler - 10/17/2005

Luckily for us gamblers we live in an age of prop culture.

You won't have to expend too much effort finding an offshore gambling parlor that offers extensive "proposition" bets on your favorite program. Whether it is the Apprentice, the Bachelor, Survivor, World Series of Poker, Survivor series or the Amazing Race, if you got an angle bet the house.

Two For the Money - Movie Review of Two for the Money
by Doc's Sports - 10/10/2005

Since 1971 Doc's Enterprises (Doc's Sports) has been in the sports handicapping industry so we were excited to finally see a film about our industry.

Not Another Top 10 Sports Movies List
by Jonathan Miller - 09/23/2005

Instead, Doc's has come up with a top-10 list that reflects what you care about most: the top 10 wagers placed in movie history. It was a difficult task, more difficult than 500-1 shot Daniel Larusso dominating the entire roster of Cobra Kai on his way to the All-Valley Karate championship in "The Karate Kid". Not even Doc could have handicapped that one.

Emmy Odds And Picks -- Betting The Emmy Awards Show
by Robert Ferringo - 09/09/2005

"Well, it's not the Oscars but it's still important." That should be the slogan of the Emmy's. The 57th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards will take place at 8 p.m. on September 18th in Hollywood and will be hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. While I won't be watching any of these idol-worshipping drug addicts fawn and guffaw over one another that evening, I will try to earn some money off the results.

Sports investment firm, Bodog has hung lines for proposition bets on "popular culture" for Big Brother 6, Michael Jackson's proposed Vaterland move and the next celebrity to release a sex tape.

Labor Issues And The Four Major Sports Leagues
by Robert Ferringo - 07/11/2005

Whenever it comes to labor disputes in professional sports, I'm always a little torn on whether to side with the players or the owners. The players are the more visible of the two groups -- thugs and mutants getting paid to play games. The owners are the men behind the scenes, perverts and war mongers worried only about the bottom line. So whose side are you on?
