Oddsshark Guys N Bets - Loving the Dodgers

Before you watch or bet, here is our starting pitcher preview found here

PITCHING MATCHUP: Dodgers LH Clayton Kershaw (7-2, 3.09 ERA) vs. Phillies RH Zach Eflin (7-8, 3.78)

Kershaw is winless in his last three starts but entered the All-Star break on a positive note following a couple of rough outings after allowing two runs (one earned) over seven innings in a no-decision against San Diego. The three-time Cy Young Award winner has logged at least six frames in each of his 15 trips to the mound, recording a quality start 12 times. Bryce Harper is 3-for-24 with 14 strikeouts against Kershaw, who settled for a no-decision against Philadelphia on June 1 despite yielding one unearned run in seven frames.

Eflin's ERA spiked nearly a full run over his last three first-half starts, including a loss in Atlanta on July 4 when he was pounded for seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and two walks over three innings. The 25-year-old owned a 2.83 ERA through his first 14 outings of the season but has been posted a 9.64 mark during his rough spell. Max Muncy is 3-for-5 with two solo homers versus Eflin, who is 0-2 with a 9.18 ERA in four starts against the Dodgers.

Emerging CEE Jurisdictions Compliance Panel at CEEGC2019 Budapest

Industry media outlets are always reporting how the Hungarian Government is keeping a tight leash around the gambling industry in the country, however, this doesn’t mean that the industry hasn’t shown developments and is still considered as an attractive market for many operators and software providers. While online licenses are still granted to land-based casino concessionaires, but that might change in the near future. You can hear why, by attending the CEEGC Budapest and paying attention to the CEE regional briefing.

The case is different in the neighboring Slovakia, where the new gaming law is in full force. Starting in 2019, private domestic companies, as well as companies from the European Union, are able to apply for online gambling licenses. There have plenty of operators jumping in on the opportunity and applying for licenses, however, the outcome and success of the new legislation is still writing mode.

On the other hand, there have been quite a lot of news around another emerging Central and Eastern European jurisdictions, and that is Poland. It has been reported that Poland’s sports betting turnover jumped 55% in 2018 and it is most likely to jump further in 2019 with all the new licenses that have been granted to international operators.

All three market updates (Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland) and much more around investment possibilities for operators and software providers will be discussed during the “Emerging CEE jurisdictions” compliance panel discussion, which will be joined by leading experts from the region at CEEGC Budapest.

The panel discussion will be moderated by Rita McClelland, Senior Legal and Research Manager at GamblingCompliance, who will ask the burning questions the industry has for Ewa Lejman (Head of Polish Desk at WH Partners), Gábor Helembai (Senior Associate at Bird & Bird Budapest) and last but not least, Dr. Robert Skalina (Senior Advisor at WH Partners).

The 4th edition of the yearly Central and Eastern European Gaming Conference will take place on the 24th of September at the Ritz-Carlton Budapest, and provides a unique opportunity of learning and networking with the gambling industry in the CEE and Balkans region via the CEEGC platform which is committed to bringing together industry shareholders and government officials from the region on a yearly base.
