Anthony Davis MVPs by 30 - O/U 1.5? - slackster
Davis is 22 years old. To put that in perspective, he is less than a month older than Frank Kaminsky, your Naismith POY, and just put up more points, rebounds, blocks, and steals in the NBA per 36 minutes than Kaminsky did in college this year per 40 minutes. Davis just finished a regular season wit...

Masters Betting Thread - Spieth -250 to win it all as of 12:30pm on 4/11 - slackster
According to Bovada live betting, Spieth is -250 to win it all as of today. Seems like pretty acceptable odds. They've also got a prop bet for the winner "without J. Spieth." Dustin Johnson is the favorite at +300. McIlroy was at +800 last I checked, and that seems pretty solid considering he i...

What would you consider a successful weekend for Tiger Woods? - slackster
I know that the expectations for Tiger Woods are all over the map this weekend, so I want to see if the MSB has a consensus on what result would be a successful weekend for Tiger. I'm sure TW and any other competitor would say anything short of a win would be a failure, but for this thread, I'm ...

Can boxing make a comeback under a more structured and consolidated organization - slackster
Boxing threads make their way across the MSB from time to time, and there have been quite a few lately with the upcoming Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight. I'm a casual boxing fan, but I wish boxing could find a way to return to its glory days. I think the biggest issue for boxing is the clusterfrick...

BMW gives away car in "reverse" April Fools joke - slackster
SIAP, I searched. A dealership in New Zealand put an ad in the paper claiming that the first person to come in and "ask for Tom" would be able to swap their old car for a new BMW. Tiaana Marsh did just that, and ... you can guess what happened from there. [link=(https://youtu.be/TzKAep8Ybb8)]V...

Iowa is the best team I've seen in the tournament so far - slackster
They are dominating Davidson and executing on offense with extreme efficiency. This Aaron White kid is the real deal. I know it is only the "second" round, but other than the 1/16 games, I haven't seen any other team play this well. Full disclosure: I may be using a bit of hyperbole consider...

$1,000 or your team winning the national championship? - slackster
Interesting topic on Morning Men on Mad Dog Sports Radio this morning. I'm paraphrasing a bit, but would you rather $1,000 or a national championship in the sport of your choice? Include pro sports if you'd like. If you'd rather the money, at what amount would you take your team? If you'd ra...

How high can Kentucky rank historically with a NC this year? - slackster
Kentucky may very well finish 40-0 with a national championship when it's all said and done. I know people will argue that CBB is down overall, but how does that affect Kentucky in the GOAT conversation? Is the ceiling 2009 UNC? 1990 UNLV? 1992 Duke? Does a dominant tournament run get Kentuc...

Will we ever see a publicly traded franchise in a major American sport? - slackster
Fan owned franchises are popular and widespread in European soccer clubs, and I find it interesting that it hasn't spread to the United States. [link=(http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/67267322/can-fan-owned-teams-and-no-rich-owners-solve-sports-problems)]Link discussing fan owned clubs[/link...

Options trading - What services does the MT use? - slackster
I've heard good things about OptionsHouse, TradeKing, and SoGo Trade, but I wanted to see if the board had any other opinions on these or other brokerage firms. I anticipate trading with modest amounts - $5-10k - and I plan on buying call options and perhaps writing put options for the next year ...

How far does Oregon-East have to move up to get Mariota? - slackster
People keep talking about moving up to #2, but I don't believe Tennessee is truly a threat. Realistically, I believe the real threat is the Jets at #6. After the Jets, the Rams at #10 is next likely landing spot. ...

Anyone still doubting Cleveland will win the NBA Championship? - slackster
Cleveland topped Golden State last night 110-99 and LeBron had 42/11/5 on 15-25 shooting. Cavs and Warriors were both healthy and it was very likely a preview of the NBA Finals. Barring any serious injury - looking at you Kyrie - Cleveland is going to win it all this year. They're as good as the bes...
