Toronto Raptors Point Guard Kyle Lowry Defends Teammates Late Night Gambling - Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry is defending two of his teammates who have come under fire for spending a late night at a casino ahead of an embarrassing loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.  On Tuesday night, Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll and point guard Cory Joseph were spotted at a downtown Cleveland casino at around 2 a.m.  “They got plenty of rest, I’m sure. Whatever time they got out, it doesn’t matter… Whatever they did, they were prepared for the game. We just lost,” Lowry said.

Petition to Bring Tim Tebow Back to Broncos Gets 3500 Signatures - The online petition, which was started on Change.org two months ago just before Peyton Manning's official retirement, had just less than 3,500 supporters as of early Thursday afternoon.  "Coach Gary Kubiak's offense would thrive with Tebow under center," the petition reads. "He and the legendary John Elway can make this happen. We dont (sic) need a subpar throwaway from some other team, we need an original Bronco who has the fire, desire, and love of the game to play as a Bronco again! As a bonus the Bronco fans would be ecstatic! He just wins, we all know this! #TebowTime". The Broncos were at 12-1 odds to win the 2017 Super Bowl.

Never Again: Bookies Make Vow as Leicester Closes in on Title at 5000-1 Odds - Capturing the Loch Ness Monster, US President Barack Obama declaring that the moon walk was fake and Elvis Presley resurrected from the grave had shorter odds this season than Leicester City winning the Premier League title at 5000-1 odds.  This is likely the biggest long shot to ever win a major betting event.  On Sunday, the Foxes of Leicester City could capture their first Premier League title in their 132-year history.

“We are going to lose 2 million quid when Leicester win it,” Adams said in a phone interview. “As it stands, the biggest price for anyone next year is 1,000-1.”

Suspension Shows Tom Brady Worth 4 Points on the Betting Line – Just how important is the New England Patriots Tom Brady to the sports betting world?  Following news that the Pats starting quarterback must now serve a suspension for the first four weeks of the 2016 regular season, Gambling911.com noted that future odds on New England winning Super Bowl LI had gone from 15-2 to just shy of 8-1 on the news (though the Pats are still favored to win at some online books, not all)

Case in point, CG Technology had New England a 1-point underdog in its season-opening Sunday Night Football game at Arizona before the news.  The Patriots are now 4.5-point underdogs versus the Cardinals.

Other games on the board are New England has also gone from a 9.5- to a 6-point favorite hosting Miami in Week 2 with similar line movements occurring in the next two games featuring the Pats.
