Online bettors see Kavanaugh as likely U.S. Supreme Court nominee

Reuters – A federal appeals court judge in Washington was the early favorite among political bettors to succeed U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his retirement on Wednesday.

Brett Kavanaugh, a judge since 2006 on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, was seen as having a 34 percent chance of being tapped by President Donald Trump to fill the Kennedy vacancy, according to PredictIt, a popular online market for betting on political events.

That was more than twice the chance assigned to the next jurist seen in contention for the job, Thomas Hardiman, an appellate judge for the Third Circuit in Pennsylvania. PredictIt gave Hardiman a 16 percent chance of being appointed.

A third top contender was Amy Coney Barrett, a federal appeals court judge in Indiana, situs judi online who was assigned an 11 percent probability of appointment, according to PredictIt.

After months of sparse activity in PredictIt’s “Who will be Trump’s next Supreme Court nominee?” contracts, trading was brisk following Kennedy’s retirement announcement.

The Kavanaugh contract was busiest, with volume of around 6,500 on Wednesday afternoon, followed by Barrett with about 4,500 and Hardiman with 3,300.

Indeed, the prospect of filling what were once slow weekends is the real hope among Atlantic City casino operators, rather than the potential tax revenue sports wagering would yield for the state or the city. Moody’s estimated that New Jersey’s casinos could win about $125 million annually on sports bets, less than 5 percent of what the seven remaining casinos won last year. They also earn revenue as the exclusive purveyors of online gambling in the state.

As soon as the Borgata started taking bets on sports, it had a billboard announcing the new gambling outside the Lincoln Tunnel in New Jersey. “We feel like the vibrancy this type of offering will create will extend beyond just the race and sports book and spill out onto the rest of the property,” said Marcus Glover, the president and chief operating officer of the Borgata.

Deifik, the owner of Ocean Resort, predicted that sports betting would keep more gamblers in the region. “Instead of getting on a plane and going five hours to Las Vegas from the East Coast and New Jersey, people will stay here,” he said.

The bigger uncertainty about Atlantic City is what the reopening of two big casinos will mean for the market. Will they attract a significant number of new customers to the city or simply cannibalize the weaker competitors?

Resorts made a profit of less than $3 million last year, compared with more than $80 million for the Borgata, according to the state Division of Gaming Enforcement. Bally’s, one of the three owned by Caesars, had a profit of about $8 million in 2017.

PGA Tour Agrees It’d Be Foolish to Limit Mobile Betting to On-Premises

The post PGA Tour Agrees It’d Be Foolish to Limit Mobile Betting to On-Premises appeared first on SportsHandle.

We’ve made the point before but had yet to see it articulated like this by one of the professional sports leagues: If state legislation or regulations limits sports betting to on-premises only at a physical property, and requires people to go casinossportsbooks to register for or fund their accounts, that’s an invitation people to stay in or join the black market for sports betting.

PGA Tour Vice President and Assistant General Counsel David Miller on Tuesday addressed this on a panel focusing on sports wagering and data rights at the Hashtag Sports sports media innovation event in New York City. Miller identified mobile wagering as one of the “five main things we’re looking at in legislation that we’re advocating for,” along with Major League Baseball and the NBA.

“It’s not realistic to think that people will go to casinos to fund their accounts or to bet,” Miller explained. “It’s going to happen on phones, and you’re not going to eliminate the illegal market if it’s limited to physical casinos only.”

He’s right. situs judi bola Things that many people use their phones to do in 2018: deposit checks into their bank account or send money to a friend via Venmo; change the temperature in their home — from miles away — using a device such as a Nest thermostat; video chat with friends or family anywhere; and for the action movie crowd — set off an explosive device.

Among first wave of post-S that will launch sports betting, both Rhode Island and Mississippi will limit sports betting to on-premises, period. Mississippi is a rural state with casinos crowded along the Gulf Coast. You think Brett in Hattiesburg is going to take a 150 mile round trip to Biloxi on a Saturday morning to make a wager on a college football game?

Rhode Island will follow this model, while fellow first-movers New Jersey and West Virginia will take the other, smarter tact, and allow people to wager on appsonline remotely and register remotely as well.

We spend a lot of time here maligning the leagues for trying to skim money from states and sports betting licensees #integrityfee, but from time to time they do call out bad law as the NFL did in Pennsylvania for policy measures that would mutually benefit themselves, states, and operators.

On that point, stop the video before Miller goes on to ask for a sports betting royalty.

Vietnam busts second World Cup online betting ring in a week

Vietnam’s online sports bettors have one less wagering option after police made their second major bust in less than a week.

On Tuesday, Vietnamnet Bridge reported that police in the northern Thanh Hóa Province had arrested 11 people suspected of involvement in an online football betting operation that reportedly handled nearly VND100b US$4.4m in wagers since the 2018 FIFA World Cup got underway earlier this month.

The ringleaders reportedly had connections with 332betm, a password-protected gambling site based in the Philippines’ Cagayan Economic Zone. agen sbobet The group paid VND2b for a master account on the website, then solicited wagers from local residents. Police claimed to have seized over VND700m $30,500 in cash in addition to dozens of phones and computers.

This latest bust follows hot on the heels of last Friday’s bust of an online betting ring in Ho Chi Minh City. That operation, which was linked to Philippines-licensed operator 12bet, reportedly handled $26.2m worth of wagers since last year.

Meanwhile, Wednesday saw Thailand’s anti-betting brigades claim that their tally of World Cup wagering arrests has now topped 6,500, more than twice the number the authorities had claimed in the tournament’s first four days.

Of those arrested, a mere 250 or so were actual bookies, while the rest were just poor sods who disagree with their government’s total ban on not just sports betting, but literally any form of gambling other than the much-derided government lotteries.

On the plus side, the police reported that no civil servants or “influential individuals” were caught up in the dragnet, at least, none that weren’t able to buy their way out of finding their names on police blotters. Police also reported failing to detain any youths engaged in illegal betting, which must mean that those crazy kids are using their digital noodles to avoid detection by those clueless adults.

Police have now seized THB28m $850k in cash during their sweeps and The Nation reported that the Anti-Money Laundering Office froze 77 accounts containing THB25.6m linked to 64 online betting sites, including bkk999m, fifa555asiam, hlthailandm and sport4xonlinem.

But still, his company and its local partners, the Jingoli and Morris families, have invested more than half a billion dollars to turn the shuttered Taj Mahal into a resort that emphasizes live music and entertainment. Hard Rock’s read on consumer sentiment is that people are rooting for Atlantic City to succeed but they think that it had “lost its way,” Allen said.

The latest round of investment in casinos on the boardwalk, he said, is a watershed for the city.

“If a brand like Hard Rock fails in Atlantic City, the interest in investing capital in that town is going to diminish significantly,” Allen said. “However, if we are successful, then I think the future is very bright in Atlantic City.”

Betting giant BetVictor leaked a list of its own internal systems passwords

A popular betting platform left a password list for its internal systems on its website for anyone to find.

BetVictor, a Gibraltar-based betting site, has since removed the two-page document containing a list of links to back office systems, including usernames and passwords.

Chris Hogben found the document through the customer support search box on the company’s homepage. The customer support pop-up allowed users to search the site’s knowledge base of questions and answers.

“LoginsLinks to Back Offices – Internal,” read the document’s title, which contained over two-dozen passwords to the company’s trading platform, ticketing system, and Experian’s identity verification service, Hogben told ZDNet.

The documents contained weak and easy-to-guess passwords, said Hogben. He found 11 passwords were in the Pwned Passwords dataset, a service offered by Troy Hunt’s Have I Been Pwned site, which reveals passwords that have been exposed in data breaches.

Many of the systems were accessible externally — though, none of the credentials were tested to avoid breaking computer hacking laws.

It’s not known how long the document was left online. Hogben said the document dated back to 2015.

Hogben, agen piala dunia who also blogged about the security issue, said that other internal documents were accessible through the public-facing customer support box.

“With access to any of these systems, it may be possible to access sensitive company information and potentially even user-specific data,” he warned.

Scott Helme, a security researcher, helped responsibly disclose the security lapse.

“Of the documents found there were two that contained extensive combinations of usernames and passwords for what looked like various back-end and administrative systems used by the company,” said Helme. “All it would have taken was someone malicious to scoop up these credentials and start logging in to systems as the URL for each system was also present.”

“Who knows what access this would have granted them, what data would have been available and what damage could have been done,” he warned.

After informing BetVictor of the exposure, the company quickly pulled the customer support system offline.

“We are still investigating this matter with our third party suppliers and cannot answer any specific questions at this point in time,” said a spokesperson.

The company did not comment further, or respond to our questions — such as if the company had changed any of its passwords.

World Cup Day 2: Betting Odds, TV Info For Spain vs. Portugal, Other Matches

The 2018 World Cup officially got underway Thursday morning, but the tournament really gets in full swing Friday in Russia. A day after the host nation crushed Saudi Arabia 5-0 in the day’s only contest, three matches are on the schedule.

World Cup Day 2 will feature the entirety of Group B and two teams from Group A. Neither the defending champion nor the tournament favorite will play Friday, though three of countries with the nine best odds to win this year’s championship will be in action.

Here’s a quick look at all of Friday’s World Cup matches. Betting odds are courtesy of OddsShark.

Egypt vs. Uruguay

The action on Day 2 starts at 8 a.m. EDT 5 p.m. local time with what’s considered to be Friday’s most lopsided matchup. situs judi bola Egypt is a heavy underdog at +540, and Uruguay is a -164 favorite. The odds of a draw are +240, and the overunder is two goals.

Uruguay is the odds-on favorite to win Group A. FS1 will have the TV broadcast live from Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

Morocco vs. Iran

Friday’s second match will start at 11 a.m. EDT on FOX at Saint Petersburg Stadium. It’s the most unpredictable contest of Day 2 with Morocco getting 20 odds and Iran getting +260 odds. A scoreless tie could be in play since the overunder is 1.75 and the odds of a draw are 92.

Considering neither team is expected to reach the knockout stage, the loser could unofficially see their chances of making it out of group play go out the window.

Portugal vs. Spain

Friday’s third and final match is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. EDT on FOX in Sochi. Spain has -117 odds to win outright, and Portugal is a +320 underdog. The odds of a draw are +230.

Spain is favored to win Group B, but Portugal has the group’s top star. Cristiano Ronaldo is among the favorites to win this year’s Golden Boot as the World Cup’s top goalscorer, and the match has the day’s highest overunder of 2.25.

So,  they now start going to college football instead.”

2018 World Cup Betting Advice: Handicapping Third Games

On Sunday the second round of the round-robin portion of the 2018 FIFA World Cup comes to an end. From Monday to Thursday the final games of round robin will take place, and all of the spots in the elimination rounds will be claimed. It marks a shift in the flow of the tournament, and not in a good way. There are four games instead of three per day, and more should be better. But both games from a group are played at the same time, so your thumb is going to get plenty of exercise as you flip from channel to channel between the games.

These games are a little different for bettors than the first two, and you need to be aware of those differences to give yourself the best chance of betting success that you can. Here are five factors to keep in mind when betting these games:

Do they need the game?: agen piala dunia All four teams in a group play at the same time, so any team that has not yet been eliminated still has something to play for in the games. The first step, then, when looking at any of these games is understanding what is on the line for every team. This should be obvious, but a lot of bettors don’t go deep enough when looking at the games. You need to start by looking at whether teams have a chance of advancing. Then you need to look at what it will take for them to advance. Is a win enough? Do they need to win by a wide margin to get the goal differential where it needs to be, or is any win good enough? Will a draw help or hurt? Do they control their own destiny, or does the outcome of the other game control their fate? Motivation can vary widely in these games, so the more you can think about these questions and similar ones, the better off you will be when betting these games.

What comes next?: If a team is already advancing regardless of the outcome of this game then you need to really think about what lies ahead for them. Can they win the group with a win, or is where they finish out of their control? If they have some control of their fate then is there clearly a place that is preferable? Sometimes finishing second in a group may be favorable to finishing first because it lines up a more favorable opponent in the Round of 16. Health needs to be a real consideration here as well. If a team has been banged up, and they have a key player or key players who are hurting then resting and getting ready for the Round of 16 will likely be a lot more important than a particular result in this game. Again, it all comes down to motivation, and the likelihood that you will see some version of the best game from a team.

Was A Tax Case Really About Abortion?

When is a historic Supreme Court decision about sales tax not mainly about sales tax? When it’s really about preserving – or overturning – Roe v. Wade, Citizens United, or both.

To understand what just happened at the Supreme Court, we need to think beyond the headlines. Those headlines were simple enough: Last week a 5-4 court majority struck down the central holding of Quill v. North Dakota, a 1992 case that declared a state cannot impose sales tax collection obligations on a business unless that business has a physical presence within the state. The ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair was a victory for states hoping to force online retailers to collect sales taxes on their behalf.

This is almost certainly not the whole story, nor even the most important story, about the impact of this decision. We can tell from the strange composition of the five-member majority that voted to overturn Quill, and the almost equally curious grouping of four who dissented and would have kept it intact.

Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote the majority opinion. As the typical “swing” vote between the court’s conservatives and liberals, he often gets to write decisions in the most closely contested cases. Sometimes that is the only way to ensure his vote with the majority. But this time, the decisive vote to overturn Quill came not from Kennedy but from Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. You can bet something strange is happening any time “the Notorious RBG” is part of a five-justice majority that also includes Kennedy and Ginsburg’s polar opposite, Justice Clarence Thomas, but not her three fellow liberals.

Those three – Justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer – joined Chief Justice John Roberts’ dissent. They would have kept Quill intact, even if they believed it should have been decided differently, to honor the judicial principle of “stare decisis.”

Stare decisis asserts that once the courts have settled a precedent, other courts of equal or lesser authority should make every effort to follow that precedent. situs judi online Wayfair overturns not one, but two previous Supreme Court decisions in the name of fixing perceived missteps in Quill and its predecessor, the 1967 decision National Bellas Hess v. Department of Revenue of Illinois.

Roberts directly stated that he agreed those cases had been wrongly decided; where he differed from the majority was in contending that Congress, not the Court, should correct the problem. “The Court should not act on this important question of current economic policy, solely to expiate a mistake it made over 50 years ago,” Roberts wrote.

If, as Kennedy wrote in the majority opinion, the Court should indeed exercise its power to correct a “mistake” it made 50 years ago and later affirmed, then the “mistake” of Roe v. Wade is in mortal peril. The views of Supreme Court nominees on stare decisis have long been a proxy for willingness to overturn Roe, and it seems unlikely that this was lost on the three liberal justices who joined in Roberts’ dissent.

States unequal winners in online-tax ruling

NEW YORK — The U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on online sales tax is viewed as a victory for states, but those with aggressive collection policies, such as New York and California, could be challenged by online retailers.

By overturning a ruling that had made much of the Internet a tax-free zone, the court delivered a victory to South Dakota and effectively blessed its model of collecting sales tax from online retailers. Justice Anthony Kennedy defended the state’s measures as preventing “discrimination against or undue burdens upon interstate commerce.”

South Dakota taxes most products at a single rate, exempts small sellers and doesn’t allow retroactive collection. New York and California’s rules are more complex, and those states have sought to increase sales tax collection by using broader definitions of what it means to do business within their borders.

Both states already require retailers to collect tax if they have digital ties to the states.

“New York and California would likely have to make some pretty big changes,” said John Buhl of the Tax Foundation. “South Dakota has a uniquely simple law since it generally taxes all consumer purchases instead of carving out a bunch of exceptions, and online sellers can remit their taxes to the state instead of each and every locality.”

The decision reverses a 26-year-old standard that allowed states to levy sales taxes on e-commerce sales only if the sellers had physical locations in the state.

Among the biggest winners are small or less populous states where retailers are not as likely to have stores or employees.

While states like New York may be emboldened to test the bounds of what’s now possible, situs judi bola retailers are likely to rein in those states through legal action.

The New York State Department of Taxation and Finance didn’t respond to a request for comment.

“This decision is not the end of the days for this case,” said Jamie Yesnowitz, a National Tax Office leader at accounting firm Grant Thornton.

Rep. Tom Reed, R-N.Y., said he supported the ruling’s creation of a level playing field between online sellers and physical retailers. But he said he’s concerned that it will create a complex web of online sales rules that could prompt some businesses to move.

“When you are dealing with the virtual cloud, it gets complicated,” Reed said. “This is an area that’s very much in a state of disruption.”

Online retailers will have to deal with a hodgepodge system until Congress enacts a federal standard, which is unlikely this year given the midterm elections in November.

Amazonm and Overstockm are among the companies that say they support a nationwide law that would relieve retailers from dealing with a patchwork of state tax laws.

Lawmakers have tried unsuccessfully to pass online sales tax legislation for years, with the most recent attempt failing after several conservatives called the provision a tax increase on online shoppers. Some Democrats also opposed the measure.
