Grand National Horse Generator

Trying to pick which horse to back in the Grand National is like trying to win world the round at darts blind-folded. You know what to look for, you roughly have an idea how it’s going to go but in the world of horse racing your careful observations can very quickly go south when something you had no chance of foreseeing happens. To stick with the darts example, your friend Mike just walked in between you and the board while you’re trying to hit the 5. That might be a tad extreme, it’s still fully possible to handicap and get a solid idea of who’s going to win a race but the fact you can’t control all the variables makes it feel like a fool’s game on some occasions. Especially with smaller festivals like Cheltenham that have a tighter pack and are significantly easier to predict and manage when it comes to making bets. So, with 2019 pretty far away, we’ve got this random horse generator so you can put money on your pick now and can relax until this time next year. I mean, you could spend hours delving into the last race and studying the horses who competed or you could pick it totally at random out of the favourites. Choice is yours!

Setting the Super Bowl lines

So who do you have today? The Broncos or the Seahawks? It’s the biggest sports betting day of the year, and there will be tons of high rollers in Las Vegas, New York and around the country laying money on the game or one of the many prop bets.

Here’s an interesting article on how the lines get set. High rollers of course already know how this works, but the article is pretty good at explaining it and also telling some good stories, like this one:

The handicapper predicts what team will win; the bookmaker doesn’t care who wins. So when Super Bowl XXIII rolled around and the San Francisco 49ers were a 7-point favorite against the Cincinnati Bengals, Gaughan — the man who revolutionized sports bookmaking in Vegas — decided to split the action.

You could have the 49ers at minus-6.5 or the Bengals plus-7.5 at Gaughan’s Barbary Coast property. He’d make the game attractive to both sides, drive as much money on the game as possible, and would likely win on either side. The only way he’d lose — and potentially lose big — was if the 49ers won by 7 and he had to pay both sides.

Going into the fourth quarter, the Bengals led the 49ers 13-6, with the game sitting on that disastrous 7-point margin. Two San Francisco touchdowns would have cost him $18 million.

It wasn’t until three minutes remained in the game, when the Bengals kicked a field goal to go up 16-13, that the game moved off a potential 7-point margin.

“I was in bed with the covers over my head,” Gaughan said. “I’d still be paying it off today.”
