Sporting Index Cross Country Chase

This is the time of the year that dichotomous ATS and SU records pay off. Oddsmakers make very little adjustment because the public has no interest in betting bad teams or against good teams.

Explained in our articles around the Net, basically if a team has a great SU record but horrid ATS record or visa versa, you ride for that to continue as it is the sign of which teams are most under or overvalued.

Duke has lost but covered three straight, staying under the radar.  Just 1-8 SU they are getting no respect as they face a Clemson team overrated thanks to beating an even more overrated Miami team last week.  With the home team being 7-2 SU in Clemson’s games we don’t look for them to win by two TDs in an obvious hangover contest.

GA Tech is a perfect 8-0 off a double-digit win as a dog since 1992

Texas Tech is 61-35 in the conference the last 10 years

Arkansas is 20-8 after a game in which 60 or more points were scored

Oregon is 9-1 since 1992 when playing a team with a winning percentage of the .500s

Nebraska is 11-0 since 1992 following a game in which they allowed 325 or more yards passing in their last game

Bowling Green is 20-7 following a win of 17 or more points since 1992

South Korea invites foreign casino investors

Korea Land Corp., operated by the government, signed a memorandum of understanding with real estate company HRH Construction Corp., which represents the interests of a U.S. delegation to Korea. The agreement, which gives the green light to investing $3 billion in Korean property, may result in attracting more foreign gambling operators.

According to Korea Herald, cited by, HRH is looking to build the project, which includes casinos, theme parks, convention centres, golf courses and hotels in Korea’s three free-economic zones – Incheon, Busan and Gwangyang. These locations are favourable for investors due to the system that offers tax incentives, low rent on land and eased labour regulations.

The second U.S. investment mission to Korea, which will examine possible development sites, is expected to bring new casino-related agreements. Many renowned operators hope to visit the country, for example Las Vegas-based casino and hotel operator MGM Mirage, Universal Parks & Resorts, Busch Entertainment Corp. and Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

“‘The U.S. investors found Korea a very attractive investment destination. They informally expressed their interest to even expand their investment, given supportive Korean government policies,” said ruling Uri Party lawmaker Yum Dong-yun, who received the U.S. delegation last month.

Korean gambling market, which has 14 casinos with only one casino available for Koreans, hasn’t been tapped by any foreign investor. At the same time, the country, which has no grand-scale resort similar to La Vegas, can serve as entertainment centre for about 400 million people from China and Japan, who are three hours away from Korea by plane.
