Novice''s Guide to On-line Sports Betting
Posted December 25th, 2015 by James Bucher
Sports betting is not a game!
Well, to many people sports betting is first class excitement as
well as great entertainment, but you should always keep in mind
that the betting industry is not here to entertain you - the
bookmakers want your money and punters (gamblers) want to beat
the bookies. That is the simple truth of betting; still you can
have great fun betting if you control your stakes in a sensible
manor and of course win more than you lose! Both tasks are

In an article by a well known "functional/core exercise"
proponent, there is an attempt to affiliate the concepts of
microscopic life of the amoeba with human cellular processes,
and "functional training" when the author claims: "Movement,
survival and the optimal functioning of the organism all go hand
in hand." This statement opens a door for the author as he links
"movement" with "function," together with the concept of
"optimal." He then claims that there is a link between

Heading into the combines, the biggest story will definitely be
Maurice Clarett, and how he can rebound from last yearâs
disaster. (Regardless of how his combine goes, keep in mind that
before Adrian Peterson this year, Clarett was the best freshman
running back in decades.) If Clarett goes past the first day of
the draft he will be a steal.
Speaking of the Draft; LB Derrick Johnson out of Texas is my
favorite player coming out this year. He will have an immediate

As the NBA reaches the midseason point most of the talk is of
the MVP race, with many tabbing Steve Nash as the early
favorite. My question is can a guy who is not even the best
player on his team win the MVP? (Shawn Marion is the best player
on the Suns.) Yes I will concede Nash deserves some credit for
making the players around him even better, and lifting the team
to another level. But where would the Cavs be without Lebron
James, or would the Heat even be a playoff team, let alone the
