If things aren’t quite going according to their plan they can equally use Cash Out and limit their losses,” Adegbile said.“These Cash Out offers will be available for all sports and betting options types. Singles and accumulator bets are also eligible for Cash Out and it will be available online, on mobiles and customers can still Cash Out in-shop. Cash Out offers cut across Pre-Game and Live Games, with no qualifying odds conditions attached.Adegbile also explained how the new innovation would benefit punters. “Let’s assume that a punter makes a five-team accumulator bet of N500 for the weekend’s football matches: two Premier League games on Saturday, two La Liga games on Sunday and one Bundesliga game on Monday night. If all five selections win, I stand to win N50,000.“If the first two selections are successful and the Sunday bets also come in, the punter is left with his Monday night selection. If the team the punter backed takes an early 1-0 lead in the game, then a few minutes later, they concede a penalty, have their goalkeeper sent off as a result and the opposition team converts the penalty to level  1-1.“With the game poised all square, he is now at a significant disadvantage. Now would be a great time for the punter to consider cashing out his bet. By doing this, he will be giving himself a return on the bet, whereas if he leaves the bet to run to a natural conclusion, the odds are that his Monday night selection might lose and he will be left with nothing.”last_img read more

FA fines two in fresh crackdown on betting rules

first_img Scottish FA sponsorship deal with William Hill to end February 21, 2020 Campaigners call on Boris to ban gambling sponsorship in football February 26, 2020 Submit Related Articles Share Leeds United nets record breaking SBOTOP sponsorship for EPL comeback August 11, 2020 StumbleUpon Share The Football Association (FA) has issued a fresh crackdown on breaches of its betting rules after issuing both Yerry Mina and Jordan Stevens with fines and subsequent warnings.Mina has been handed a £10,000 fine and a warning over his future conduct, while Stevens was also fined £1,200 and a six-week ban from the sport. An FA regulatory commission found that Mina had worked alongside Colombian betting company called Betjuego to feature in an advertisement for the brand. The Everton star has since accepted a misconduct charge after the commission heard that the advert was entirely in Spanish and not broadcast outside of Colombia.A statement released by the FA said: “Yerry Mina has been warned as to his future conduct and fined £10,000 after admitting a misconduct charge in relation to the FA’s betting rules.“The Everton FC defender breached FA Rule E8(3) by participating in an advertisement for betting activity which he is prohibited from engaging in.”In response to the charges, Everton had emphasised that the advert in question had only aired for around one month after 24-year-old Mina had demanded it be removed as soon as he was informed that he was in breach of the FA’s betting rules.Meanwhile Stevens admitted a misconduct charge in relation to The FA’s Betting Rules after it was alleged that he placed 59 bets on football matches between 06 August 2018 and 27 May 2019.The FA explained in a statement: “The Commission accepts that in this particular case there are a modest amount of bets in total, and the amount staked was similarly modest at £510.12. The Commission had particular regard to the 23 bets which were placed on games in competitions into which Leeds United were entered and, of those 23 bets, the five bets which were placed on games involving his own club. “It is notable that three of the bets were placed on Leeds United to win and two were on both teams to score twice. We accept the FA’s submission that those five bets are the most serious aspect of the case.”Leeds United has stated that it will “support Jordan through this process, he is a young footballer who needs educating on the dangers of outside influences and how to conduct himself as a professional footballer”, but has stated that they believe the punishment to be somewhat “excessive.”Leeds United chief executive Angus Kinnear commented: “Whilst we fully recognise the importance of the FA’s role in protecting the integrity of the game, we are hugely disappointed in the FA’s choice of sanction.“To prevent a young footballer from taking part in any football activities at such critical period of his career is a disproportionate punishment following a foolish mistake from a young player.“We are particularly disappointed that the sanction was determined by two former professional footballers who we hoped would have had a better understanding of the impact of their decision.”last_img read more

Nigeria unveil stunning new Nike kits ahead of World Cup qualifiers

first_imgWith the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) and 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers set to commence, the Nigeria Football Federation has unveiled their extraordinary Nike kit which tops the hugely popular one they wore from 2018-2020. Nike’s replacement of the ‘Naija’ kits is a stupendous ‘Swoosh’ design which the country will don for the 2021 AFCON, 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and any other tournament across all divisions.Nigeria put themselves on top of the tree in the world of football kits when they participated in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with their stunning apparel.The follow-up design for just the home jersey is another thing of beauty, as the Super Eagles went with a striking hand-drawn striping pattern on their primary shirts. From the green-white-green color pattern on the jerseys to the incredibly vibrant look, this is an example of pushing the envelope on design in a positive manner.On Wednesday, Nike revealed designs for the United States, South Korea, and Nigeria national teams, with the remaining federations set to be launched over the coming months.“The extensive array of federations donning the Swoosh each have unique histories and cultures,” read a statement on the Nike News website. “In 2020, their distinctive attributes are celebrated with highly differentiated collections.“Building upon the learnings from the successful 2018 Nigeria Collection, Nike undertook deep cultural immersions and collaborated with each federation to ensure the designs truly resonated.“From hand-drawn prints to custom fonts, each team’s look will be its own,” the statement continued. “Counter to templatization, Nike designers had 65 chassis options available to them across varying necklines, sleeves, cuffs, badge placement, etc.”In June 2018, Nike confirmed that their Naija collection had broken records, with the manufacturers revealing 3 million pre-orders for the jersey, a new record for an African nation.See kits here:last_img read more

March Madness bracket 2019: Upset predictions, Final Four pick in South Region

first_imgBest storylineCan Virginia recover from the lingering UMBC nightmare to reach its first Final Four under coach Tony Bennett — and its first in 35 years? The Cavaliers have been subtly punished through much of this season for becoming the first No. 1 seed ever to lose to a No. 16, when they were manhandled by the UMBC Retrievers in one of the last of 2018’s first-round games. For a while, their ranking was suppressed as AP Poll voters remained unimpressed by an undefeated start that lasted 16 games. They were 15-0 in mid-January and ranked No. 4! They never made it to No. 1 as Duke held the top spot, then Tennessee, then Gonzaga. But they’re in the No. 1 spot that matters, with a great path to Minneapolis through the South Region.All-region teamPlayerPositionTeamKyle GuyShootingVirginiaGrant WilliamsPower forwardTennesseeJarron CumberlandShooting guardCincinnatiEthan HappCenterWisconsinCarsen EdwardsShooting guardPurdueBest first-round gameNo. 7 Cincinnati vs. No. 10 Iowa. The Bearcats played 21 games against American Conference competition, and 12 of them were decided by two or fewer possessions; they play nothing but “best games.” (Cincinnati lost just two of those games, by the way). Iowa played six such games out of their final 11, including those won on last-second shots by guard Jordan Bohannon (Northwestern) and freshman Joe Wieskamp (Rutgers) and clutch shooting barrages by Bohannon (Indiana, twice). This can’t help but be entertaining, can it?MARCH MADNESS: Get your printable NCAA Tournament bracketSeeded too highNo. 9 Oklahoma. The Sooners’ appeal to the committee (and to the bracketologists who presaged it) remains elusive. They had a 4-10 record against Quad 1 and a loss in Quad 3. They were 3-10 against the field. Baylor, on the same seed line, was 7-7 against the field. Indiana, which didn’t even make it, was 5-11. The Hoosiers probably didn’t deserve it, but the Sooners at best should be scrambling to make arrangements for a trip to Dayton.Seeded too lowNo. 7 Cincinnati. The Bearcats were 13-5 against combined Quad 1 and 2 opponents, won the championship of the American Conference tournament by beating the No. 4 team in the NET ranking (Houston) and finished 28-6 overall. For this, with a 5-5 record against the field, they received the same seed as Louisville, which lost 13 games as a member of the ACC, and Wofford, which went 0-4 against the field. It was apparent the committee didn’t want to be bothered with the late result of the American championship. But that win at the very least pushed Cincinnati’s resume ahead of East No. 6 Maryland.I HATE MARCH MADNESS BRACKETWhat do you hate about March Madness? Vote in SN’s poll Upset specialNo. 12 Oregon over No. 5 Wisconsin. In a matchup against a lesser coach, Wisconsin’s uncommon style might allow the Badgers to grind their way through this one and maybe into the Sweet 16. But Dana Altman is not a lesser coach. He is only two years removed from a Final Four and rescued this Ducks team from possible oblivion to direct them through the Pac-12 Tournament for an automatic NCAA bid. The Ducks are a dynamic group and they have a reliable, proven guard in Payton Pritchard. The Badgers’ shooting has been too sporadic of late, dropping them all the way to 52nd in the nation in offense.Best potential gameNo. 2 Tennessee vs. No. 3 Purdue. For a couple of programs with defensive reputations, the Vols and Boilers own the nation’s 34th- and 32nd-ranked defenses, according to KenPom. Really. But their offenses are No. 3 and No. 5, respectively. No kidding. Each team has players in their rotations with offensive limitations, but they’re so precise about how they operate, they manage to excel regardless. And though they surely will not defend one another, the prospect of Sporting News All-Americans Grant Williams (6-7) and Carsen Edwards (6-1) is inviting.BRACKET TIPS: KenPom | Play the odds | Idiot’s guideBest potential player matchupJarron Cumberland, SF, Cincinnati vs. Admiral Schofield, SF, Tennessee. Cumberland is the American Athletic Conference Player of the Year and Schofield is first-team All-SEC. But forget basketball: This showdown should be on a beach somewhere, with the two muscle men flexing in the sun. Or perhaps in a weight room, with the two of them trying to outperform one another doing power cleans. You won’t get a couple more rugged dudes on a basketball court, anywhere. And yes, they can ball: Cumberland set the AAC Tournament record with 33 points in UC’s title-game upset of Houston, and Schofield smacked Kentucky with 21 points and five assists in an SEC Tournament win that secured a 2-seed for the Vols.Get to knowOld Dominion senior guard B.J. Stith. He is playing three decades later for the same coach as his father did: Jeff Jones. Bryant Stith played under Jones up the road at Virginia and is still the school’s all-time leading scorer. B.J. tried to follow his father’s footsteps by joining the Cavaliers, but played in only 13 games as a freshman. So he decided to follow his father’s footsteps in a different direction, toward Jones. That has worked out much better: B.J. this season leads the Monarchs with 16.9 points per game and 7.4 rebounds and has made 71 3-pointers.MORE BRACKET PICKS: DeCourcy (Duke) | Bender (Duke) | Fagan (Duke)Don’t be surprised if …Villanova doesn’t last as long in this tournament as the last one. The reigning NCAA champion Wildcats fought off Xavier and Seton Hall to win the Big East Tournament, but one of those teams didn’t make this tournament and the other is a double-digit seed. Villanova got some brilliant play this season from veterans Phil Booth and Eric Paschall, but it appears the title they celebrated Saturday in Madison Square Garden will be the last great moment for those two great champions.Sleeper teamNo. 13 UC Irvine. The Big West is not a league of heavyweights, but there was something about the way the Anteaters dominated their championship game that against Cal State Fullerton that ought to have NCAA opponent Kansas State concerned. (There’s also something about that nickname: Anteaters). UCI won road games at Texas A&M and Saint Mary’s, so one cannot accurately say the Anteaters’ 30-5 record is purely the product of a suspect conference. This is not a great offensive team, ranking 125th in efficiency with a leading scorer, Max Hazzard, getting 12.5 points per game. By the way: Hazzard’s grandfather is the late UCLA legend, Walt Hazzard.Final Four pickVirginia. When this region was placed on the television screen, it seemed as though Thomas Jefferson himself had been in the room where it happened. The committee identified Tennessee as the strongest of the No. 2 seeds, but we’re talking about a team that blew two championship shots in the last two weeks. Should they really be trusted to hold up with a Final Four berth at stake? The other teams in the region are tactically strong, but boast few game-changing players. There is not a single projected lottery pick in the region save UVA’s De’Andre Hunter, and only two others expected to have a shot to be called late in the first round (Williams and Paschall). This is the best shot UVA will have for a while.March Madness features from Sporting News”40 Minutes of Hell” to Hog Heaven: Nolan Richardson’s 1993-94 Arkansas team will go down as one of the most fun SEC title-winning teams of all time.

Jets’ Le’Veon Bell addresses Jamal Adams trade rumors, contract situation

first_imgMORE: How will 49ers handle Raheem Mostert’s trade demand?”Me, personally, I hope he doesn’t get traded,” Bell said. “But I don’t think he’ll get traded. I do think he’ll be playing with the Jets. That’s just me, personally, because I don’t think he’s going to get traded. Honestly, why would you trade him? I wouldn’t trade him.”Adams, who is entering his fourth year with the Jets, reportedly requested a trade last month and was caught on video telling a fan he was “trying” to work his way to the Cowboys. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Adams would prefer a trade to one of these seven teams: the Cowboys, Chiefs, Eagles, 49ers, Ravens, Seahawks or Texans.If the Jets suddenly decided to offer Adams a lucrative extension, perhaps the trade chatter would quiet down. However, with Adams under contract through the 2021 season, New York isn’t currently prepared to throw out $15-20 million for the two-time Pro Bowler.After going through his own contract issues with the Steelers and sitting out the 2018 season, Bell understands why Adams refuses to budge.”I think he wants to be [with the Jets]. I just think he wants to get paid,” Bell said. “I think he’s in the same situation that I was three years ago. He’s a young player. He’s been at the top of the game, playing at a high level and he feels like, ‘Dang, I just want to get compensated.’ Despite the constant trade rumors swirling around Jamal Adams, at least one of his teammates believes he will be playing for the Jets this season.In an interview with Hot 97 radio, Jets running back Le’Veon Bell said he recently had a “great talk” with Adams, the All-Pro safety seeking for either a new contract or new team. Bell doesn’t believe New York’s front office will attempt to move Adams anytime soon. “Me, personally, I’m not gonna be a guy who’s like, ‘Aw, Jamal, man you gotta do this.’ No. Hell no. You deserve every dollar you’re asking for. Everything he asks for, he deserves it.”You can watch Bell’s full interview with Hot 97 radio below.last_img read more
