Supreme Court allows states to determine legalization of sports gambling
Blogs

The United States Supreme Court ruled to strike down the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) by a 6-3 vote. The 1992 law barred state-authorized sports gambling, with Nevada being the sole exception. The ruling allows states to determine whether they want to allow gambling on sports. While New Jersey expects to have sportsbooks open prior to the start of the NBA Finals, Delaware, Mississippi, New York, Pennsylvania and West Virginia are all prepared to get into legal bookmaking....

Retiring Ravens GM Newsome wins day one of 2018 NFL Draft
Blogs

Had you been living under a rock the last month you’d still somehow know the 2018 NFL Draft’s first round was deep with quarterbacks. The fact five quarterbacks were taken in Thursday’s first round shouldn’t have surprised anyone, but, as always, there were surprises throughout the draft’s first round, starting with the very first pick. The Best: The Cleveland Browns got their franchise quarterback, probably Many “experts,” including ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr., predicted Cleveland would take quarterback Sam Darnold, but...

Offseason recommendations for new Minnesota Wild GM
Blogs

The Minnesota Wild parted ways with general manager Chuck Fletcher on Monday after a nine-season tenure that saw the Wild reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs for six consecutive seasons, but fail to get out of the second round. Joe Bouley over at Hockey Wilderness tabs Toronto’s Kyle Dubas, Tampa’s Julien Briesbois, Nashville’s Paul Fenton and Pittsburgh’s Bill Guerin as potential replacements. Regardless of who takes the Wild reigns, they’ll inherit quite the mess from Fletcher. The Wild’s Mess According to...

Blogs

The NBA Playoffs tipped off over the weekend, and the results of every Game 1 gives us a glimpse of what we can expect in the first round. Here’s what we learned from every NBA Playoff Game 1. 1. Even without Stephen Curry, the Warriors are too much for the Spurs If Klay Thompson keeps shooting like he did on Saturday, the Warriors won’t need Stephen Curry in the first round.

Thibodeau should step down as Timberwolves head coach
Blogs

Tom Thibodeau is not the right coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves, or any NBA team given the state of the game, and it hurts me to write that. I don’t enjoy writing the “fire the coach/GM” letter. I hope no one does. Calling someone’s job performance into question publicly isn’t something I long to do. I’m not the current President. Firing people isn’t my thing. But when I feel a change is needed to improve the product for which I...

Minnesota enjoying best days of sports year
Blogs

The best days of the Minnesota sports year are here, and I’m not just saying that because Target Field opens its gates for baseball on Thursday. The Minnesota Twins are, as of this writing, playing their home opener against the Seattle Mariners on Thursday afternoon. Even if the foot of snow the Twin Cities received Tuesday doesn’t melt by game time or more rain and snow moves into the area forcing a postponement, at least Minnesota sports fans will have...

March Madness is all about the bad beats
Blogs

The number one overall seed in the 2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament fell to the 64th overall seed — the first time a 16-seed has beaten a one-seed in the history of the Final Four tournament. But that one upset hardly tells the story of the bad beats abound during March Madness. Bad Beats Betting the Spread My friend and I experienced the bad beats abound during March Madness on a blue chip parlay betting the spread — even though...
