by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 7/12/2011
The greatest game of golf played at Royal St George’s wasn’t a British Open. Rather, it was the game played between Auric Goldfinger and Commander James Bond of Her Majesty’s Secret Service in Ian Fleming’s 1959 novel Goldfinger.

College Football Odds: Conference Winner Props
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 6/29/2011
The big news in College football this week is that former North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson has committed to Wisconsin. There has seldom been a more dangerous cat among the Big Ten pigeons than the one that will stand under centre for the Badgers if Wilson wins the starter’s job (like he would have left the Wolfpack to ride the pine in the first place).

Wimbledon Odds and Betting Picks
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 6/22/2011
Wimbledon has already started, but there’s very little of interest for someone who doesn’t avidly follow the sport closely in the first week’s games. A sharpie tennis bettor can spot a good bet in the early rounds but it’s very hard for casual tennis fans to make money in games like Roger Federer’s first round game, where the great man is a -10,000 favorite here at Sports Interaction.

US Open Golf Picks
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 6/14/2011
The US Open, above any tournament, takes pride in having its winner suffer. Four of the last ten winners didn’t even break par, with Angel Cabrera and Geoff Ogilvy limping home as Champions at an extraordinary five over par at Oakmont and Winged Foot, respectively.

NFL Week 1 Betting Lines and Predictions
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 6/7/2011
At Sports Interaction, we believe in thinking positive. Nature abhors a vacuum, and there will be a serious vacuum in all our lives if there’s no football in September. With that in mind, Sports Interaction has set lines for Week 1 of the NFL just as always, and there are some bargains to be had once the legal shape-throwing is over and the league and players deliver the people what they want – football.

Stanley Cup Odds: Bruins vs. Canucks Preview
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 6/1/2011
Montreal is the last Canadian team to take Lord Stanley’s Cup home. Canada has waited eighteen years for the cup to return, and seen Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Ottawa fall at the final hurdle since. Hockey is Canada’s heartbeat. The absence of the cup pains the nation.

Preakness Stakes Field: Animal Kingdom Odds-On Favorite
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 5/18/2011
It used to be an automatic thing that if you won the Derby you marched on to Pimlico like Patton crossing the Rhine. That hasn’t been as common in recent years, as the status of the Preakness has declined in comparison to its Triple Crown sister races. And now, all of a sudden, a horse that had never run on dirt can arrest the declining popularity of horse racing. That’s what two good minutes in Kentucky on the first Saturday in May can do for you.

Players Championship Odds: Tiger Woods the Favorite
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 5/11/2011
The Players Championship is popularly considered the fifth major. It has big prize money, it always attracts a strong field and it has one of the most iconic holes in golf, the infamous island green at the 17th. There’s nothing not to love about Sawgrass.

Kentucky Derby Predictions
by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 5/3/2011
The only thing we can be sure about this year’s Kentucky Derby is that it’s going to be one hell of a race. A lot of Derbies are about a superhorse coming to Kentucky for a coronation. If Uncle Mo had won the Wood Memorial he would have been that superhorse but instead he had a disaster, finishing a poor third to Toby’s Corner.

The Ontarian provincial government’s approval of mixed martial arts last year was another watershed for the fastest growing sport in the world. UFC 129 is happening this weekend in Toronto and sixty thousand people are expected to attend, thus proving that the Ontarian government had no option but to approve the sport – the people want it, and Canada is a democracy after all.

by Frank Doyle of Sports Interaction - 4/13/2011
Vancouver enters the NHL playoffs as Presidents Trophy holders and favorite to win the Stanley Cup with Sports Interaction. The bad news is that only one of those is always a good sign. The record of the Presidents Cup holder in the playoffs in recent years has been poor.
