UFC betting fans are used to fighters drop outing of a bout for various reasons. While the majority of the time the cancellations are related to injuries sustained while training, other times players have to serve a suspension for banned substances. Jon Jones recently made headlines for receiving a suspension, though he is adamant that he hasn’t taken any substances. Recently UFC has made it their priority to increase the number of tests given in order to combat what they perceive as a drug problem. Brock Lesnar was also making headlines for his return to UFC, but it appears that his return will be short lived as he also failed several tests. Ironically Lesnar also tested positive for the same substance that got Jon Jones his suspension.
NFL betting is plagued by more factors than any other sport. NFL players are notorious for earning suspensions, and the physicality of football results in various injuries. While it’s easy to tell when a player has a physical injury from the outside, concussions will sometimes go unnoticed. Even when players detect the symptoms themselves it’s easy to understand why they may be hesitant to report injuries. Professional athletes are some of the biggest competitors on the planet, and you definitely don’t want to appear injury prone when your paycheck depends on your performance on the field. But there is a rising need for the league to address the issue of concussions; the NFL has put plenty of regulations to increase security and detection but the most important thing it can do now is address player responsibility.
Fans who pulled the trigger on betting on basketball on the Milwaukee Bucks at SBG Global sportsbook last season ended up like deer caught in the headlights. In spite of a promising 2014-15 campaign and group of very young and very skilled players, the Bucks finished 2015-16 with a 33-49 records and failed to qualify to the playoffs. Nevertheless, general manager John Hammond stuck to his gut and unearthed another obscure player in the 2016 NBA draft. In 2013, it was Grecian Giannis Antetokounmpo; this year, it’s Australian/Sudanese Thon Maker. Hammond is pretty much the Brangelina of professional basketball.
Canadians fans found out what it was like to be betting on basketball at SBG Global sportsbook and actually winning thanks to the Toronto Raptors having by far the most successful season in the history of the franchise in 2015–16. Not only did the Raptors surpass the 50-win mark for the first time in their 21 seasons in the NBA – they finished 56-26 – but they defied the odds by eliminating the Miami Heat in the Western Conference playoff semifinals and even gave the Cleveland Cavaliers a run for their money in the WC Finals. Ain’t no shame in losing to the eventual champions; the Raptors can be rightfully proud.
