Betting on Kate Middleton’s Royal Baby Is New Sport

“Every single bet was that it’s a girl,” said Hill.

World News Videos | US News Videos


Those are some of the pressing questions on the minds of royal watchers — and gamblers — worldwide. And they’re hoping that the chips will fall in their favor.

See Duchess Kate’s Growing Baby Bump on Display at Queen’s Coronation

And, perhaps most importantly, will the baby arrive before or after Kim Kardashian’s new bundle of joy?

Will the baby’s hair be “ginger,” like Uncle Harry, or blond like late grandma Diana?

Then there was “D-Gate” — that is, when Middleton may or may not have said, ‘I’ll take a teddy for my d–,” during a conversation with a fan in March.

Will Kate Middleton have a Caesarean or a natural birth?

Will the baby be named something with sufficient gravitas — say, Elizabeth or George — or will the hip, young parents choose a more offbeat moniker (Moon Unit, anyone?)

“She’s favored to have a C-section,” he said.

He doesn’t necessarily buy it, however.

“She might have meant ‘dog,'” he said.

Betting on the offspring of Prince William and Kate Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, began “the second we found out that she was with child,” in December 2012, said Rupert Adams, a spokesperson for William Hill, one of the largest bookmakers in the U.K.

After Middleton was admitted to the hospital with severe morning sickness, rumors began circulating that she was having twins. There have also been debates on whether Middleton will be, as Adams so delicately put it, “too posh to push.”. Immediately, “we had a market out there saying it was 33 to 1 that she was having twins,” said Adams.

Bets have also been placed on the date the child will be born, with July 13 a favorite (10-1 odds), and the baby’s weight (8 pounds)

Online betting says Obama odds-on favorite to win

At 5 p.m. (2100 GMT) Tuesday, Intrade’s contract titled “Barack Obama to win 2008 US Presidential Election” was priced at 78.1 (or 7.81 dollars), which meant that Obama had 78 percent chance of winning.

The current betting trend would give Obama 364 electoral votes in the November 4 presidential election, well over the minimum 270 needed to clinch the White House.

Experts are divided on the reliability of the online prediction market, but some believe past results show they are just as good or even better than opinion surveys.

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Online betting makes Barack Obama the heavy odds-on favorite in the upcoming US presidential election, according to a leading online bookmaker whose reliability some analysts believe equals or betters that of opinion polls.

James Surowiecky, an economist, New Yorker magazine contributor and author of “The Wisdom of Crowds,” believes online betting is more reliable because risking money makes for a stronger commitment than simply talking with survey-takers.

According to Ireland’s Intrade, a leader in the prediction market business, the prevalent betting predicts the Democratic senator will win all the states that John Kerry won in 2004, plus key states Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Nevada, Iowa, New Mexico and Missouri.

The prediction market works on “contracts” bought or sold according to whether a candidate is predicted to win or lose, respectively. In the 2006 legislative elections, it correctly predicted the Republicans would win a Senate majority, when even the pundits were unsure how the race would go.

The contract of Obama’s Republican rival “John McCain to win 2008 US Presidential Election,” was going for 22.0.. Bush won and lost in all the states Intrade predicted he would. The contract “price” is set, as in the financial markets, by the buying and selling activity.

How to play the card game Switch (also known as Two Four Jacks or Black Jack)

The important thing is to make sure all players are clear on what version they are playing before the game starts (so you don’t have arguments in the middle of the card game)

Last card rule: If you only have one card left in your hand you must declare ‘last card’ so that everyone can hear you. If you forget to declare last card, and the next player has taken their turn, you have to pick up 7 cards on your next go.

For example if the last card played was the 5 of hearts you can play any card in the hearts suit, or any card with the number 5.

The object of the game is to be the first player to get rid of all your cards.

Variations on rules

Switch: special cards or ‘trick’ cards

What you will need

Dealing the cards

How to play

If you can’t play a card you must pick up a card from the centre pile.

The rules below are some other common ones which you can agree to use if you want to mix things up a little:

8 or wait: If a player plays a 8 the next person to them must play an 8 or skip a turn

Aces: If a player plays an Ace they can nominate a new suit that the person next to them has to play (unless they have another Ace in their hand)

The basic rules of Switch

Two or more players

Any remaining cards should be placed in the middle as a stack.

You must put down a card that either matches the suit or rank of the card on the last card played.

Jack back: If someone plays a jack it reverses the order of the game

A standard pack of 52 playing cards (or two packs for more than 4 players)

To start a game deal each player 7 cards.

The basic rules for playing Switch are below with details of variations below.

Aim of the game


Pick up 4: If the player before you plays a 4, you must either play a 4, or pick up 4 more cards

8 skips a go: If a player plays an 8 it skips the turn of the next person.

Pick up 2: If the player before you plays a 2, you must either play a 2, or pick up 2 more cards

There are several variations of Switch

Animal Kingdom is the first Kentucky Derby winner to win a Grade 1 race at the age of 5. And of course, our American Hall of Famer Curlin, a legendary horse who won in 2008 to cement his place in history.

( Bayern , Toast Of New York, and California Chrome were all nominated to go to the Dubai World Cup).

. Some horses take up to 3 months to recover from a trip like that. Animal Kingdom finished 2nd in the Preakness Stakes and 16th in the Belmont Stakes before his career was disrupted by injury. He returned to finish 2nd in the 2012 Breeders’ Cup Mile before winning the Dubai World Cup as a 5-year-old in 2013. CC doesn’t have anything to prove, and I would be fine with him staying and racing right here in the US. I have to trust that his connections will make the right decision by putting CC safety first. The first winner of the big one was Cigar with the record time being held by Dubai Millennium who won in 2000 in 1:59.50 which is one of two winners who have broken the two minute barrier. He has won Grade 1 races on both dirt and synthetic surfaces. Past Winners:

Best answer: California Chrome reminds me a lot like Animal Kingdom who won the 137th Kentucky Derby and who also won the 2013 Dubai World Cup. I feel if California Chrome is sound and up for the travel then he could do just as well, and has a good chance to WIN. The Dubai race is about 10 furlongs 1-1/4 and CC is known for stamina over distance. The San Antonio Handicap, has been a traditional warm-up for the World Cup. :)


Dubai World Cup Past Winners

There are many special USA Horse, and some USA trained Horse that have won the Dubai World Cup, aka Worlds Richest Race. I think he needed the race against Shared Belief in Sat San Antonio

Vegas doesn’t have winning hand in effort to land pro team

And the reason is only partly related to sports gambling.

When he was in Las Vegas for the All Star game, NBA Commissioner David Stern first said he’d want to see Las Vegas not allow gambling on his league’s games before he’d back a franchise move there. That’s basically the way the Penguins played their cards with their trip to Las Vegas.

So don’t expect Vegas to be dealt into the pro sports game anytime soon.

A lot of people assume that Vegas will be the next city to land a major sports franchise. He then opened the door a bit by saying that it it might be okay if the city just didn’t allow bets on the Las Vegas team’s games.

NFL deals Vegas out

Only seven U.S. We haven’t yet begun an economic study of the market.”

“It’s very hard to stick you there,” said Dave Checketts, an NHL and Major League Soccer team owner who ran the Utah Jazz when the team played about a quarter of its home games in Las Vegas during the 1983-84 season. Instead, its the city’s drawbacks — such the fact that its a relative small television market — that will keep sports out of Sin City.

Checketts said the market has improved as a potential home for a team today, but he thinks that it will be more likely to land an NHL team than an NBA team because there is virtually no wagering on hockey at the state’s casinos.

Figures from the Nevada Gaming Commission show that 25 percent of the money wagered at sports books in the state is bet on basketball, although that includes college games. But perhaps most importantly, there’s a lot of competition for the entertainment dollar in Las Vegas. So there’s no guarantee that a pro team would play to sold-out crowds.

And the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins were recently in town to talk about a possible move while they were in negotiations to get a new arena back home. I think everyone in sports has got to look at Vegas as having all the characteristics of what we’re looking for.”

NCAA pools will never run dry

The NBA held its All Star game in Las Vegas, and Mayor Oscar Goodman is working on a proposal to the NBA about a possible arena and changes in the city’s sports gambling regulations. Plus, there are seven television markets larger than Las Vegas without a team so it’s not as if it is the only “major” city lacking a sports franchise.. “For most teams that accounts for roughly 80 percent of ticket revenue. the potential local fan base, works at night in the hospitality industry. Hockey is grouped together with other sports, such as golf and NASCAR, that together account for only 5 percent of bets.

He said that no matter what is decided about wagering on basketball, the biggest challenge for moving a team to Las Vegas is determining whether the city can support an NBA team.

More on the business of sportsĀ Top of page

“It’s still a business based largely on season ticket holders,” said Silver. “I think you’ll see tremendous corporate support. (Nevada is the only state with legal betting on sports.)

But despite all you read about interest in Las Vegas as a home for team, it’s probably still a long shot. Basketball accounts for only 0.4 percent of the state’s gambling winnings, while the catch-all group that includes hockey accounts for only 0.1 percent.

Another problem is that many of the city’s population, i.e. The entertainment people are looking for ways to entertain their customers. It creates a different type of challenge in Las Vegas to essentially resell those seats to tourists and conventioneers on a nightly basis.

But perhaps the best thing Las Vegas now offers any team considering a move there is leverage in their negotiations for a new arena in their current home town. “We brought in Julius Erving and Larry Bird and everyone said, ‘Big deal, go down to the Strip and look at the names we have.'”

And the contribution of sports wagering to a casino’s profits is even lower than that. It saw 85 percent growth in population between 1990 and 2000, and another 14 percent in the first half of this decade to take its population to 545,147. sports teams are based in television markets smaller than Las Vegas and four of those are NFL teams for whom the size of the local TV market really doesn’t affect the bottom line due to the league’s national TV deal.

If you count the Green Bay Packers as being in the Milwaukee market, there are only five TV markets smaller than Las Vegas which have a team, and that includes Oklahoma City, which is an interim home of the New Orleans Hornets. The Penguins ultimately wound up getting a deal for an arena that will keep the hockey team in Pittsburgh.

NBA Deputy Commissioner Adam Silver told me this week that since the All Star game, the league has heard from several Las Vegas developers who wanted to talk about building an NBA Arena as part of a larger project.

“It’s a uniquely different market,” he said. And those population estimates don’t count the nearly 40 million visitors who come to the city annually.

NEW YORK ( — There’s a lot of talk lately about either the National Basketball Association or National Hockey League moving a team to Las Vegas.

Jeremy Jacobs, the CEO of the Delaware North Companies, which handles concessions at many stadiums and arenas, and is the owner of the NHL’s Boston Bruins, said he believes Las Vegas has both the growth and corporate support that a league is looking for when weighing a franchise relocation.

If teams don’t move to Vegas, it’s not going to be because of concerns about having their image or integrity sullied by gambling
