    The ESPYs (07/16/13)

    The ESPY Awards odds and ends. Who will win Best Male Athlete? How many awards will LeBron James collect? Will there be any upsets according to the odds?


    The ESPYS, Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award, will be televised live Wednesday, July 17th at 9 pm ET. Jon Hamm, Mad Men's Don Draper, will host the 2013 ESPYS.

    Hamm, joined by top athletes and entertainers, will celebrate the best sport stories of the last year. Including the year's best plays, biggest upsets and most outstanding performances.

    ESPN holds the ESPYS on the Wednesday after the MLB All-Star game because it's the deadest time in sports. None of the four major American sports have games making it the perfect time to corral all of the top athletes.

    However, the ESPYS are generally boring. The commercials for the award show tend to be funnier than the show itself. Last year, reruns of The Big Bang Theory and Family Guy had better ratings than the ESPYS.

    To solve this problem the good folks at Bovada.lv have provide prop bets for each of the major awards. We are not saying wagering on an event makes it more enjoyable (ok, of course we are), but it does not hurt either.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.
