With A Twiddle And A Twirl, Table Tennis Betting Is Coming To NJ Sportsbooks

New Jersey Gambling Sites learned DGE recently approved betting on table tennis at SugarHouse Sportsbook. SugarHouse could have it up as soon as today.

No, gamblers won’t get the rush of Opening Day for MLB today. While not a substitute, the MLB is trying to soften the blow with #OpeningDayAtHome.

But here comes … wait for it … table tennis.

Table tennis, a game revolving around a small ping-pong ball, will soon be on the board at SugarHouse Sportsbook in New Jersey.

New Jersey Gambling Sites learned the Division of Gaming Enforcement gave their blessing early this week for its unveiling, according to a source from Rush Street Interactive. Rush Street operates properties in three states:

  • New Jersey
  • Pennsylvania
  • Indiana

Table tennis has already become the leading sports wagered at those properties that are already offering it. SugarHouse intends to be up and running Thursday in New Jersey, if not soon thereafter.

Betting on table tennis at one NJ sportsbook

New Jersey sports betting fans can pick up the flight of the ball, read body language and sense momentum swings.

New Jersey will allow pre-match wagers to start. 

Efforts could be expanded later to obtain in-game betting, which provides significant additional revenue. 

That would not be surprising, given that each state wants to encourage as much operator profit and thus tax revenue as possible. But for now, table tennis has at least gotten onto the board at NJ sportsbooks.

SugarHouse has been helped with the TT Cup and Setka Cup,  two of the major table-tennis tournaments wagered upon this week.

The events were  live-streamed on the official organizers’ websites, links which the operator also has shared with its players.

Expect more operators to find the table-tennis niche if professional leagues remain on the sideline and Atlantic City casinos remain closed.

Table tennis betting an interesting alternative

Table tennis is ideal for betting. The sport moves quickly enough to keep bettors and spectators interested.

There is a healthy abundance of games, every day. They will run most afternoons and throughout the entire evening.

The average time of scoring one point in table tennis is between four and eight seconds and the duration of the game is one-to-three minutes.

There are plenty of chances to crank up the next betting opportunity and do some handicapping by following a particular player from one match to the next. Winners from one day usually return the next.

Most table-tennis matches are five games. Each requires 11 points to win and victory must be by at least two points. The majority of matchups are best-of-five battles.

The events feature substantial in-game betting opportunities to go with the moneyline, point spread, game-by-game, and point races already established.

Table tennis has the same characteristics as tennis but moves faster. Changes in momentum are significant within a game.

And in case you are wondering, a twirl is when a player turns the paddle to keep their opponent guessing on which side of the paddle will be used. A twiddle is the same as a twirl. You’re welcome.

76ers vs. Nuggets: NJ Sportsbooks Expect Philadelphia To Struggle Without Ben Simmons

The Philadelphia 76ers may play without starting point guard Ben Simmons on Friday in Denver, and NBA betting odds at NJ sportsbooks reflect that absence.

The Philadelphia 76ers got a taste of what life was like without Ben Simmons on Wednesday in Utah. NBA betting odds predict another loss on Philadelphia’s road trip without their starting point guard.

Varying reports have Simmons missing anywhere from one to three games because of his sore right shoulder. The consensus is that X-rays showed no damage to the joint, and Simmons should return to action soon.

For Friday’s game, however, that isn’t much consolation.

76ers vs. Nuggets odds: Denver favored by NJ sportsbooks

The Nuggets are a slight favorite at most sportsbooks. The lines swung drastically after the news broke that Simmons would likely miss the game.

Denver expects to have its full roster, although Gary Harris is battling an ankle sprain, too.

The lines at three of the most popular New Jersey online sportsbooks listed below were accurate as of 10 a.m. ET on Friday, Nov. 8.

DraftKingsPHI +5.5 (-110)
DEN -5.5 (-110)
PHI +190

O 210.5 (-112)
U 210.5 (-109)

This should be a temporary setback for Simmons this season, but for the 76ers in Denver on Friday it’s a devastating loss. New Jersey’s oddsmakers expect that to translate into a loss on the scoreboard as well.

NBA betting guide to Ben Simmons’ injury and Friday’s game

Simmons has been very successful at staying healthy since the 2016-17 season that he missed completely, so there isn’t much data to look at regarding how Philadelphia fares without him.

Simmons has only missed three games due to injury over the past two seasons.

What’s apparent is that the 76ers will have a lot of offense to replace. Simmons finished Wednesday’s game averaging more than 13 points and nearly seven assists per game.

Bettors should expect Raul Neto to get the bulk of the minutes at the point for Philadelphia. Josh Richardson will likely spell him for Philadelphia.

Neither is a real replacement for Simmons in terms of dexterity in running the offense, however.

76ers vs. Nuggets: History of the series and team stats

Philadelphia has split its last 10 games in Denver going back to the 2008-09 season but has won four of the last six road contests against the Nuggets.

The 2019-20 76ers should be well-accustomed to traveling already, as five of their seven games so far are of that variety.

This is the fourth home game of the season for Denver, which has won two of the three previous engagements. Especially without Simmons to help fuel the offense, Philadelphia should build on its defensive success to drop the Nuggets down to .500 at home.

Through games played on Wednesday, Nov. 6, the 76ers lead the league in steals per game with 11. Denver currently ranks 24th out of 30 teams in points scored per game, although the Nuggets have a lower turnover average per game than all but seven other teams in the league.

The main culprit for Denver’s relatively-poor offensive output is their shooting. The Nuggets are shooting just 43.3% from the field, good for 25th in the NBA.

If Philadelphia can force Denver into a few more turnovers than the Nuggets usually commit and exploit the Nuggets’ pedestrian interior defense, they should get win number six.

New Jersey sportsbooks don’t expect the 76ers to do so, however.

Jersey Sides & Totals: There’s A Showdown In The Big D And SugarHouse Is Ready

Sunday Night Football’s matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys in Dallas is keeping New Jersey sportsbooks busy. PlaySugarHouse has its own array of bets.

As we reach Week 7, there are plenty of NFL storylines here in Jersey

The two primary tenants of MetLife Stadium are a combined 3-8. Despite slow starts, record-wise for both teams, there are reasons for optimism in both the Giants and Jets camps.

After facing the Patriots in Foxborough, Mass., with a shorthanded offensive lineup, the Giants are at home on Sunday afternoon against the Arizona Cardinals.

It’s certainly a winnable game and Big Blue will be boosted by the potential likely return of offensive stars Saquon Barkley and Evan Engram.

The Jets were almost unrecognizable versus the Cowboys last Sunday.

Unrecognizable, in the sense that the Jets could not have looked more inept during the previous 2+ weeks with third-string QB Luke Falk calling the signals. Sam Darnold was back in the lineup after missing four games from mono. He made a huge difference in the Jets win over the Cowboys.

There is now even a playoff discussion taking place around the halls of Florham Park. Are playoffs for the Jets that far-fetched?

Perhaps, but after a huge Monday night home matchup against the Patriots, the Jets will catch the Dolphins twice, Giants, Redskins, and Bengals plus other winnable games against the Jaguars, Raiders, and Steelers.  

Eagles vs. Cowboys week is a battle for NFC East

Then, there’s Philly.

The Eagles return trip to US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis last Sunday was much less fulfilling than their previous visit in their Super Bowl 2018 win over the Patriots.

The Vikings threw the ball at will making the Kirk Cousins to Stefon Diggs connection seem like Joe Montana to Jerry Rice. The Eagles need to regroup from that debacle quickly as they head to Dallas for a huge Sunday Night Football game against the Cowboys.

Both teams are banged up with injuries and coming off road losses. The Cowboys offense was essentially Dak Prescott, Zeke Elliott and Jason Witten versus the Jets, and the Eagles haven’t been healthy on both sides of the ball since a rash of injuries were sustained in a Week 2 loss at Atlanta

With so much on the line, the focus of this week’s column will be on the Sunday night matchup in Dallas with first place on the line in the NFC East.

‘We’re gonna win that football game’

Eagles Head Coach Doug Pederson wasted no time in firing things up right out of the gate on Monday with a win guarantee during his press conference:

With Pederson throwing down the gauntlet, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett didn’t take any of the bait in his response:

Additionally, there is no shortage of drama down in Dallas.

A disgruntled Cowboys fan base with Garrett has lead to some fans going so far as to create a “Go Fund Me” page to buy out his contract:

Breaking news on Wednesday was the trade of Jaguars’ cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Rams.

With a depleted secondary, many Eagles fans were disappointed that they didn’t land the mercurial Ramsey:

Come Sunday night, all the talking on and off the field will subside, and it will be time to play and bet the game.

Eagles vs. Cowboys: Best odds and bets at NJ sportsbooks

As of Thursday, Oct. 17, here’s a summary of the best prices currently available for the Eagles vs. Cowboys matchup.

The majority of the 17 New Jersey online sportsbooks have the line at Cowboys -3 or -2.5 with varying degrees of “juice.”

Here’s BetMGM’s pricing for the game:

If you’re an Eagles bettor, look no further than TheScore Bet. While several books have priced the juice at -115, TheScore sportsbook currently offers the best pricing at Eagles +3, -110:

For Cowboys pricing, PointsBet priced its -3 line at +105:

In terms of straight moneyline odds, FanDuel has the best Eagles pricing at +134:

fanduel sportsbook nj moneyline sunday night football

And Hard Rock online sportsbook is offering the Cowboys at a market-best -145:

The over/under total for this game represents a real shopper’s market, with seven books (including 888 and BetMGM) at 48.5. Six have the total at 49 (including William Hill and Fox Bet), and four books are at 49.5 (DraftKings, Unibet).

As always, these lines will continue to move, and it’s always great to shop around.

But it doesn’t end there. SugarHouse also has odds for highest-scoring half and total points odd/even:

I did find a winning margin prop that is interesting.

As shown below, if you like the Cowboys to cover the 3-point spread, there’s value at 3.3 to 1 and 4.6 to 1, respectively, if they can win by 1-6 or 7-12 points:

NFL Week 7: Eagles, Jets, Giants odds

Here are the current local lines as of Thursday via SugarHouse:

  • Eagles +2.5 (-103) at Cowboys (-2.5 -120), Total of 49.5 points
  • Giants -3 (-106) vs Cardinals (+3 -115), Total of 50.5 points
  • Jets +9.5 (-110) vs Patriots (-9.5 +110) Total of 43.5 points

My three picks from the Jersey Side

We thought we had a clear path to a 3-0 week until the Bengals climbed in the back door scoring a touchdown with 1:34 left in the game to cover their +12 spread against the Ravens.

We will take the 2-1 for the week as it pushes us back to .500 for the season. Let’s get ready for NFL betting and Week 7: 

My Week 6 recap

Week 2-1, Season YTD 9-9

  • RAVENS -12 over Bengals (RAVENS 23, Bengals 17)
  • SEAHAWKS -1.5 over Browns (SEAHAWKS 32, Ravens 28)
  • REDSKINS (-1) FIRST HALF over Dolphins (REDSKINS 7, Dolphins 3)

My Week 7 selections

The NFL season just seems to be flying by as we are already at Week 7.

Pay attention to the bye weeks as the Bucs and Panthers get a break after returning from London, as well as the Steelers and Browns.

We have eight games at 1 p.m., three late games starting between 4 and 4:30 p.m., which then sets the stage for the Eagles-Cowboys on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

Here’s what I like:

GIANTS (-3) over Cardinals 

The Giants get a nice opportunity at home this Sunday. Barkley is supposed to return from his injury and should be very involved in the offense as the “Danny Dimes” era moves forward.

The Cardinals have been respectable and are coming off a big win at home over the Falcons. But I think it’s likely the Cards will regress off that effort, with the Giants covering the 3 points. 

49ers (-5.5) over Redskins (1st HALF)

The 49ers come into this week as the other undefeated team (besides the Patriots). They travel to DC to meet a Redskins team that just picked their first win of the season in Miami last week.

An interesting subplot is around the 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. When asked about what he liked and didn’t like about his time as an assistant coach with the Redskins, Shanahan said he “liked” the chance to coach for his father and many of the players.

As to what he didn’t like, his short answer was “everything else.” There could be a bit of revenge in play here as I will play the Niners to jump out to a fast start and cover the 5.5 points by halftime. 

EAGLES (+2.5) over Cowboys

I think this game comes down to which team will be healthiest on Sunday. Both teams are pretty banged up.

The Cowboys are still missing starters on their offensive line, and questions also remain about the status of wide receivers Randall Cobb and Amari Cooper.

I will also create the angle in my head that the Eagles were looking past the Vikings and its go time this Sunday. It must be. So let’s go. It’s time to Fly Eagles Fly.  

Think ‘Veep’ Will Take The Emmy For Best Comedy? You Can Now Bet On It At These Two Sportsbooks

The Emmys come to NJ sportsbooks

While only two days away from the awards show, DraftKings and SugarHouse each put up odds for finalists in a dozen categories.

NJ makes another foray into awards betting

This is not the first time New Jersey sportsbooks have expanded their purview beyond sports betting.

Recall earlier this year when the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) allowed operators to accept wagers for the Academy Awards.

Unlike Oscars betting, however, NJ operators do not have much time to cash in on the Emmys.

Certainly Sunday’s awards won’t lead to lucrative business, especially with the show sitting a mere two days away.

That said, any business is (theoretically) good business. Especially these days, as New Jersey continues to challenge Nevada for industry supremacy.

New Jersey Sportsbooks Seeing Heavy Action On Cowboys, Patriots

With NFL Week 3 action hitting full gear on Sunday, PlaySugarHouse in NJ and Pennsylvania is seeing heavy betting in unusual places.

Two midweek themes punctuated Week 3 of the NFL season.

First came the changing of the guard at quarterback. The season-ending injury to Ben Roethlisberger, the prolonged setback to Drew Brees, and the benching of Eli Manning erased five Super Bowl rings from the gridiron.

A second focus became heavy favorites receiving wagering love, even as their spreads resemble college games.

Prohibitive, in NFL terms, has been re-defined.

Rising tides lead to betting action

Wagering by midweek featured surging interest in the Patriots and Cowboys, who give the NFL an unprecedented two favorites of more than 20 points in one week.

Instead of coaxing interest from the other side, the rising spreads continued luring money for New England. The Pats jumped from an 18 to a 22.5-point choice against the Jets. Dallas settled in at -22.5 against Miami.

“Eighty five percent of the wagering money has come in on the Cowboys and Patriots,” said Matt Stetz, the COO of Rush Street Interactive, which manages PlaySugarHouse.com in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

“Both teams remain strong in the betting.”

At some point, lines with big favorites go far enough for underdogs to prevail. But the bettors don’t see that here.

And they are playing with an unparalleled X factor: Miami being outscored 60-0 in the last six quarters at home and the Jets operating with a third-string quarterback.

Keep in mind that Tom Brady showed up on the Patriots injury report, although he should play.

Steelers’, Eagles’ country feeling the pinch

Even in Pennsylvania, the Steelers’ backyard, Stetz said “65 percent of the money has gone to the 49ers, (-6.5) which is unusual because the area is usually very heavy for the Steelers,” he indicated.

While Mason Rudolph may develop some rhythm for Pittsburgh, Big Ben was loaded with intangibles and this team has already lost Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell.

Stetz said Philadelphia Eagles loyalty remained high but volume dropped off. The team is battling a slew of notable injuries like those to Alston Jeffrey, DeSean Jackson, and Cory Clement.

The Eagles even canceled practice on Wednesday because of that.

The ‘real sweet spot’ at SugarHouse NJ

The game generating the heaviest attention was the Rams giving three points in Cleveland.

Stetz said that a whopping 86% of the money rode on the Rams. That’s a significant number given their second road outing in three weeks and a Cleveland team expected to break through into the playoffs.

Interestingly, the Rams have been favored by 2.5-3 points in every game this season. That’s a real sweet spot to be wagering on with a strong team. A field goal victory is either a win or a push against the spread.

Another game teasing bettors is Baltimore getting 6.5 in Kansas City. The Ravens gave Pat Mahomes fits in a late-season game last year and the fluctuation in the payouts — Baltimore -121 and Kansas City even money — provides enough wiggle room to prompt the betting totals, which could move the line.

Carolina may soon be rebuilding. In Arizona, the 0-2 Panthers may or may not have Cam Newton, whose pre-season foot injury and limited effectiveness show that this team is too dependent upon him.

Away from the play: Vikings bettors

Kirk Cousins has the worst QB rating inside the 10-yard line of anyone in the league over the last three years.

He does not read plays well at that end of the field and has been throwing off his back foot, making his passes hang up for interceptions.

Look for him to start throwing the ball away more.

Will The Eagles Soar To The 2020 Super Bowl? SugarHouse Odds Make It A Strong Possibility

Can Carson Wentz lead the Eagles back to the Super Bowl in 2020? “Die-hard fans are putting money down” at SugarHouse on the possibility of it being yes.

The Philadelphia Eagles officially opened training camp today. The first game of the regular season is still more than a month away.

And the high expectations surrounding the team are clearly evident among PlaySugarHouse customers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Rush Street Interactive indicated via a press release that Eagles fans “are already putting money down on how they think the season will shake out.”

Betting breakdown at SugarHouse Sportsbook

The pull of the Eagles, of course, includes Super Bowl betting.

And the futures market has the Eagles listed at +500 to make it to the big game — the third lowest on the board.

Here are the current odds to make it to the 2020 Super Bowl posted on the SugarHouse NJ online sports betting site:

NFL TeamMoneyline
New England Patriots+315
Kansas City Chiefs+400
Los Angeles Rams+400
New Orleans Saints+400
Philadelphia Eagles+500
Cleveland Browns+700
Indianapolis Colts+700

As far as winning the 2020 Super Bowl in Miami goes, the early line on Philadelphia is +1300. Tom Brady and the defending champs lead the field of contenders:

NFL TeamMoneyline
New England Patriots+700
Kansas City Chiefs+850
Los Angeles Rams+1000
New Orleans Saints+1000
Philadelphia Eagles+1300
Cleveland Browns+1400
Indianapolis Colts+1400

Betting on a healthy Carson Wentz

Of course, one of the big questions heading into Eagles training camp is the health of starting quarterback Carson Wentz.

He has shown glimpses of being an elite NFL quarterback, but has faced his share of injuries, too.

Two seasons ago, Wentz was recovering from a torn ACL while Nick Foles led the team to its first Super Bowl title in franchise history.

Foles, a fan favorite, stepped back into the starting role again last season when Wentz suffered a fractured vertebra. But Foles, the new starting quarterback in Jacksonville, is no longer around to play the postseason hero.

The Eagles added several key additions during the offseason, including bringing back former star wide receiver Desean Jackson.

Along with other new additions on the offensive side of the ball, Wentz may just have the pieces he needs to give Eagles fans another parade.

But could Wentz end up leading league MVP honors?

He is certainly worth considering from a wagering standpoint. At +1400, he has the fifth-lowest odds among all players.

Here are the others in the mix:

NFL PlayerMoneyline
Patrick Mahomes+600
Andrew Luck+900
Drew Brees+1200
Aaron Rodgers+1200
Tom Brady+1400
Carson Wentz+1400

In terms of over/under for touchdown passes for the season, that number is 28.55.

Trying to figure out which side to play? He threw 31 touchdowns during the Super Bowl season prior to his ACL injury.

Philadelphia Eagles and total wins in 2019

The Eagles are currently a heavy favorite heading into Week One of the NFL season.

They are hosting the rival Washington Redskins on Sept. 9. The home team is a 9-point favorite at SugarHouse Sportsbook as camp begins. The moneyline is -110.

One of the other popular future markets is total wins. That number, of course, fluctuates among sportsbooks. SugarHouse has the number listed at 10 wins.

If you think the Birds are going to win 10 or more games, then it’s a wager worth considering. The Eagles went 9-7 in the regular season last year.

Here’s a comparison of total wins markets for the 2019 Eagles regular season at SugarHouse, DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetStars NJ:
