Tiger Woods won't be at Augusta for the 2016 Masters Tournament, but there will still be plenty of big names competing for the green jacket. Jason Day (+650), Jordan Spieth (+800) and Rory McIlroy (+800) are the main favorites for the event and are the only players inside of 10/1.

Many people have the perception that gambling revenues in Nevada focus around casino games first, then sports, and then poker, but the latter is coming off an impressive month. On Wednesday, it was announced that Nevada poker rooms delivered a total of just under $9 million in the month of February alone. If that number holds up for every month of the year, poker would deliver more than $100 million in winnings this season.

Although construction for MGM's $800 million property in Springfield first got underway in March 2015, it has been stalled due to a number of reasons. The good news is that the project is back on track and has been cleared to proceed, but as a result of the delays the launch is now slated for the fall of 2018.

Remember the pundits that were saying that the Selection Committee made a mistake about the Syracuse Orange, and that they didn't belong in the March Madness field? Well, they've proven a lot of people wrong by crashing the Final Four party and becoming the first No. 10 seed to make it this far.
The Orange (+800 to win the NCAA Tournament at the sportsbooks) have won the Midwest Region and will take on the East Region winners, North Carolina (EVEN), in an all-ACC showdown this weekend.

There are a number of casino battlegrounds across the United States as both those for and against gambling clash. The latest hotspot happens to be in southern Maine where lawmakers are debating Cumberland County and York County, near where two other casinos currently operate. On Wednesday, the House voted to defeat the bill that would establish a third casino in the region.

The NCAA Tournament field of 68 has been narrowed to 16 teams and now we have a much clearer picture of who's going to win it all. There have been a lot of upsets - as per usual - but there are a lot of strong teams left in the mix, including all four No. 1 seeds.

It's been a wild ride to the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament but there is plenty of quality left. All four No. 1 seeds have survived to this point, along with two No. 2's, two No. 3's, two No. 4's, and two No. 5's.
The lowest seed still in the mix is No. 11 Gonzaga (-4.5 favorites for their Sweet Sixteen matchup), who will be taking on the second lowest seed, No. 10 Syracuse. Remember how people said Syracuse didn't belong? Well, they're in the Sweet Sixteen and could go further. Their signature 2-3 zone has held their first two opponents to just 50.5 points per game.

The Oregon Ducks are the No. 1 seed in the West Region but they're not even favored to win the quadrant. And while they're one of the four No. 1 seeds in the 2016 NCAA Tournament, they're actually sixth in line to win it all behind Kansas (+500), Michigan State (+500), North Carolina (+700), Kentucky (+1000) and Virginia (+1200).
Are we sleeping on the Ducks, who are at +325 in the West and +1400 overall?

Michigan State isn't even the No. 1 seed in their region, let alone overall in the NCAA Tournament. However, they're still a +500 co-favorite to win it all and are the clear-cut favorite at +175 to win the Midwest Region. That's because of who else is in their bracket.

The North Carolina Tar Heels enter the NCAA Tournament with plenty of momentum. They won the ACC regular season title, they won the ACC tournament, and they are now the +200 favorite to emerge from the East Region.
While the Tar Heels are favored in the East, there are four other teams inside of 10/1, so don't expect them to breeze to the Final Four. West Virginia (+400), Kentucky (+500), Xavier (+600) and Indiana (+800) are going to have plenty to say in the East.
