by Raphael Esparza - 2/17/2021
When I’m done handicapping games for the day and taking a look ahead at the following day’s odds, I often watch a variety of games at night. This is the time I usually start to think about props. I’m an entertainment props oddsmaker for a major global sportsbook. This down time is when I start to think of some crazy props that will get a lot of attention and provide entertainment for bettors. And this week I had a blast researching the music industry.

by Raphael Esparza - 4/2/2020
Who needs sports? OK, I still do, but as a global oddsmakers and handicapper I'm trying to post betting odds on pretty much everything else since sports are a no go right now. So why not post odds on the highly watched Netflix docuseries show Tiger King. Yes, you can now bet on the show.

by Alan Harris - 4/2/2020
With pretty much everyone quarantined, starving for betting action, and the networks starting for live content, we present to you an NBA 2K Tournament featuring 16 NBA players that will be shown on the ESPN family of networks starting Friday evening.

by Raphael Esparza - 3/11/2020
Nothing is better for me to unwind from handicapping and oddsmaking than watching movies. But I'm not going to lie, watching films that are nominated for Razzie Awards is eye-popping horrible.

Yes, I'm talking about WWE SummerSlam that takes place at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto.
Bet on the Outcome of Stranger Things Season 3
by Raphael Esparza - 6/22/2019
The July 4 holiday falls on a Thursday this year! Usually the Fourth of July provides me with some Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest wagers, fireworks at night, and a nice glass of scotch. However, this year is different. The mega hit Stranger Things Season 3 appears on Netflix on Thursday, July 4, and I know what I'm doing throughout the holiday weekend!

Prop Odds and Expert Betting Predictions for the King of Jeopardy
by Trevor Whenham - 4/25/2019
I had not watched Jeopardy in a very long time. I used to be obsessed - even going so far as making the contestant pool in 2006 - but those days are long gone. But the last week or so it has been appointment viewing. If you've missed it, Las Vegas sports bettor James Holzhauer has been making a mockery of the game, dominating in ways that we have just never seen in the long history of this game.
