FML [Matchbook] will be closing to the USA effective today. I guess all of the USA players will be going to higher juice places. FML.


MATCHBOOK STATEMENT

Upon title transfer, at midnight tonight, Matchbook betting exchange will no longer be facilitating the placement of wagers in jurisdictions where Matchbook operations are seen to be non-compliant.

As a result, Matchbook will order the immediate suspension of all gaming business with all accounts registered from a US address, and players who hold such accounts, will no longer be permitted to use the betting exchange. These account holders will be contacted with precise instructions and given 31 days by which they must make a one-time withdrawal of all balances held on the Matchbook betting exchange.

In addition, we would like to affirm that the new Matchbook management and ownership is in no way affiliated with WSEX or any previous ownership. The new owners and management look forward to heralding a new dawn in financial prudence and stability, while continuing to offer a world class betting exchange with improved global sports offerings.

NBA All-Star Weekend

Rookie Challenge:
ROOKIE TEAM ROSTER
Eric Bledsoe, L.A. Clippers, G
DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento, C
Derrick Favors, New Jersey, F
Landry Fields, New York, G
Blake Griffin, L.A. Clippers, F
Wesley Johnson, Minnesota, G
Greg Monroe, Detroit, C
Gary Neal, San Antonio, G
John Wall, Washington, G

SOPHOMORE TEAM ROSTER
DeJuan Blair, San Antonio, C
DeMar DeRozan, Toronto, G
Stephen Curry, Golden State, G
* Tyreke Evans, Sacramento, G
Taj Gibson, Chicago, F
James Harden, Oklahoma City, G
Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia, G
Serge Ibaka, Oklahoma City, F-C
Brandon Jennings, Milwaukee, G
Wesley Matthews, Portland, G

As much of a science as the all-star weekend is not, there's no way the rookies cover the spread. With Evans it would be a complete blowout, but I can't imagine this being closer than 10 points.

Sophomores -5½ -105 (5 units)
Sophomores 1st Half -3 -105 (2.5 units) [BetJM]

Update: Well that's a good 7.5 units I wish I could take back.

DMV

I lost my freaking drivers license so I had to cancel all my credit cards and get a new license. The DMV is typically know for their slow service and general place to be, kinda like here:


However, I was in and out in 30 min today. Can't complain too much about that. Good job DMV. Maybe you don't suck as much as you used to.
