Turnpike Sports® Book Report™

News and Notes from the sportsbooks around the country

New Jersey – handle of $540.1 mm with record revenue of $53.6 million (rate of return of nearly 10%) and record $6.6 million in tax revenue; December 2019 handle was $557.8 mm and produced only about half the revenue, $29.4 mm; Superbowl was Feb 2nd, so any Super Bowl wager placed the Friday before the game or earlier counts as hold in January. Our estimate is that over 60% of the betting took place before Feb. That pads revenue numbers in January significantly; Division of Gaming Enforcement, which issues the monthly numbers, provided a post-Super Bowl update of $54.3 mm in bets on The Big Game and a loss of $4.3mm for the books

#Payback's a Pitch for the #Astros

William Hill has released two props regarding how many times the Astros will be hit by a pitch this season. The total opened at 83.5 and those interested can also bet on the exact number of instances that Houston will be plunked-with 81 to 90 leading the way as a +300 favorite.

Check out the prop bets below.

“The trading team and I are always looking for unique angles that we think will interest sports fans,” William Hill’s Director of Trading Nick Bogdanovich said. “the Astros are the talk of baseball so we wanted to make props that we felt were relevant and timely.”

The 2008 Cleveland Indians set the American League record after they were hit by a pitch a whopping 103 times. And if you think the Astros will shatter that mark, 141 to 150 HBPs offers a 250/1 payout.
