El Padrino was listing at 20 to 1 odds of winning the 2012 Kentucky Derby at WagerWeb.com, which was offering up to $1000 in FREE CASH for qualified customers.   We have seen him as low as 13/1 so the price of 20/1 is good value.   We see his price being cut if the rains manage to come in.  He is a proven mud horse.  As of Friday evening, there was a 50 percent chance of scattered thunderstorms for Saturday afternoon and at race time.

Sports Betting: Look for Lakers to Sink Like Rocks Says Wallin

Listening to the national sports talk shows, one would presume that the Los Angeles Lakers might win the NBA championship in 2012.

One would be DEAD wrong!

Los Angeles is up two games to none on the Denver Nuggets in the first playoff round (of four rounds), but the so-called analysts seem to missing a pretty huge point.

The Nuggets are the perfect foil for Kobe Bryant's brigade because the Lakers can push around Denver's front line.

In fact, the Nuggets are the best possible opponent for LA in this round.
