Bitcoin (BTC) has had a welcomed good past week. Trading now at $275, the anonymous cryptocurrency sank as low as $209 on January 18.

GoBetGo news


Five more players burned by the downfall of GoBetGo Sportsbook have submitted sportsbook complaint forms with SBR. The players say they were totally blindisded by the sudden collapse of GoBetGo, who folded overnight while basically saying "oops!" in a short letter on their homepage.

The media has made quite a stink about the opening points spread for Super Bowl XLIX. Specifically, the fact that the line changed from the Seahawks as 2 point favorites to a line of even or “PICK” (aka PK em) shortly after the market opened. Articles like this one from Yahoo! Sports announced that Vegas oddsmakers got it wrong and that it will cost “millions”.  The truth is that Vegas doesn’t open most lines and lines move because of what happens outside of Vegas.
