05.11.2015

On April 30th the jury reached a verdict in the case of Bartice “Luke” King, formerly of Legendz Sports. The original multiple count superseding indictment had been reduced to three counts: Operating an Illegal Gambling Business, Money Laundering and the most serious; RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations).

The jury sided with the government on both the Illegal Gambling and Money Laundering charges but in dramatic fashion acquitted Mr. King on the more severe RICO charge. The government’s motion to reprimand Mr. King into custody following the two guilty verdicts was denied by the court.

The court has since ruled that government lawyers have “opened the door” for the three current Legendz defendants (Rodger Vanpelt Bramley, Kelly Ward Diebner, and Leon Mark Moran, Jr.) currently standing trial.

Lawyers for these defendants will now be able to inform the jury that the alleged ring leader of the conspiracy was found not guilty of the most serious charge of which they are also on trial for. The court also noted the defense, unlike prosecutors, has not opened the door for prosecutors to tell the jury that Mr. King was convicted on two of the three charges. Other Legendz defendants who have been found guilty or pleaded guilty previously to the RICO charge are one by one filing motions for new trials or outright acquittals on the RICO charge. 

The trial for Mr. King began on April 14th as reported by SBR. The jury deliberated for two days.

The average payoff for a wager on Manny Pacquiao to defeat Floyd Mayweather is +185, but three online sports betting websites are offering an extra 10 cents payoff for bets on Pacquiao. This means a $100 bet pays an extra $10 as betting at these sportsbooks yields $195 for every $100 risked on Pacquiao. The competition is likely to continue as sportsbooks enhance their wagering cart with new prop bets ahead of the May 2 showdown. One sportsbook manager told SBR that this weekend figures to be a top 3 betting weekend of all time, with the Kentucky Derby, NBA/NHL Playoffs, Red Sox vs. Yankees, all leading up to the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather PPV broadcast.

Sportsbook Review will update readers as new prop bets are released; Jamie Foxx has been scheduled to sing the US National Anthem, a prop market likely on the way is the amount of minutes and seconds Foxx will take to deliver the anthem - a bet commonly offered during the Super Bowl. The challenge for players will be to ensure that they are not overcharged by bookmaker vigorish when better offers are available, especially considering the outrageous $99 cost to view the fight, which may ultimately be necessary as free streams may not satisfactorily complement in-play wagering. Sportsbook Review interviewed a betting site on their intent to offer live wagering throughout Mayweather vs. Pacquiao.

In addition to comparing the prop wagering lines, players should weigh the sportsbook bonuses offered by betting sites in conjunction with straight up betting value, as some betting sites are offering large cash bonuses ahead of the May 2 weekend.
