This site is always interested in the quantitative side of sports. When you look at one of the books we feature, Money Ball, that is pretty much all you need to know about how we think. We like to know the odds, and how Vegas handicaps the next game.
Where do you get odds and data online? Here are two places- one has a list of top online sportbook sites, and the other features how to play at wagerweb.
I love the information that these sites provide. As an example, tomorrow’s NBA Game 5 in San Antonio has the Heat favored by -1.5. That tells me a lot about what the public’s dollars think about the game and the Series.
Closer to home, the Giants are seen this year as having the most likely chances of winning the NFC East in 2013.
Most important, there was arguably the biggest news of the Giants offseason when Victor Cruz signed a 1 year tender. It would have been pretty hard to imagine the Giants as contenders this season without Cruz. Add that Hakeem Nicks (who held out of 9 OTAs) seems to be injured or playing hurt all of the time, and the picture at WR was murky to say the least. We like Louis Murphy a lot. But having guys like him and Randle giving the Giants depth is infinitely better than having them as starters. One last note: Victor, we luv ya, and we think you need to get paid (not the #s you’re asking, fwiw), but if you hold out at training camp, you’ll piss us off.
