The Heartbeat of a Nation and How Hockey Helped Shape It

Canada founded in 1867 and is now into its 151st year and a nation. Jump forward only 50 years from that point and it’s now 1917 and the National Hockey League forms, now in its 100th year. A 50-year gap, a dot on the timeline of civilization, in which Canada and its provinces grew, developed and seemingly form an incredible passion for the sport. This has always and forever will be a long shared heartbeat. The big question on every sports fan’s mind is whether we can have the NHL running at the same time as the coronavirus. You should

The NBA is one of the most lucrative businesses in the world. Professional basketball players earn an extraordinary amount of money. The minimum salary for rookies is worth $893,310 a year, according to sportscasting.com. This already seems like a considerable amount for most of us, but it gets even more mind-blowing when looking at the salaries of the NBA’s premier stars. Superstar players earn hundreds of millions of dollars from their playing contracts alone.

Bitcoin Casinos and Blockchain: Adding Trust to Online Gambling

The introduction of casinos added class to gambling. Gambling went from the streets to five-star lounges with the finest linen carpets, shiniest of chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, and multi-millionaires and billionaires, with glamorous chicks sitting on their laps, placing bets of hundreds of thousands of dollars at once. And then there are also online counterparts of casinos that cater to people from all around the world in a digital space. As fancy as it may all sound, it’s common to find people doubting the trustworthiness of casino games. It’s majorly because of two reasons. The first being the house

The Gaming World is Shifting to the Digital Realm

The internet and the world wide web look like it came into existence just a few years ago. Indeed, if we were to look at the world from a larger picture, the internet and the worldwide web are relatively new. For instance, it has only been around since the mid-1980s and continued to accelerate over the 1990s. The internet and the digitization of everything via software and bits take place on a more extensive and minute scale each day. From companies that range from Google to Facebook and larger ecosystem providers such as Apple seem to empower more developers to

Progressive Betting and Professional Sports

Previously, we had talked on The Sports Economist about how to improve your chances when betting on professional sports, specifically on football. Now, we want to dedicate an article to a specific technique that betters swear by for improving their chances, called progressive betting. Progressive betting is used a lot in casinos and with table games such as roulette or blackjack, but the statistics and theory behind it can apply equally well to sports betting, or indeed, any other game of chance. People don’t use progressive betting techniques in sports so much yet, but our friends at HelpBet think that

Potential Loss of Revenue without NCAA Football

As 2020 drags on, the uncertainty in just about everything seems to increase. The world of professional and college sports is definitely not an exception to this. In fact, it seems we are more and more confused about what to do about it as time drags on and people argue about what is the best course of action.

NCAA coaches charged with fraud and corruption

Hmm, am I shocked? No, not really. However, I am a little shocked that it was the Feds that caught them. Student-athletes are worth a lot of money to the schools and the brands that sponsor the schools. As such, we expect there to be a strong incentive for places to find ways to convince these student-athletes to go to their school (or brand). And schools have always done this through relatively inefficient means: nicer locker rooms, weight rooms, and other facilities; hiring personal chefs and personal trainers; and even paying professional coaches to leave the big leagues and come
