"With Arsenal, we lost, and today against United we lost. Conte is not the first manager to play down his team’s chances of success - and he will certainly not be the last. One thing is for sure, though: if Tottenham want to mount a sustained title tilt, they will need to improve their performance levels. However, Bournemouth have now lost back-to-back games in the Premier League, going down 1-0 to Southampton and 2-0 to West Ham United. Lucas Moura started in midweek as Conte moved back to a 3-4-3, but Tottenham did not look convincing in that system either.5 months ago WSN

Betr Cofounders Believe Micro-Betting is the Key to Broadening Sports Betting’s AppealImagine you’re watching your favorite NFL team play their biggest rival – maybe you’re a Cleveland Browns fan and they’re playing the Pittsburgh Steelers; there’s a minute left, your Brownies have the ball, and they need a field goal to win, and you know in your heart they’ll kick it. “This is all about enhancing the way the mass market fan consumes sports … We want to create as seamless a user experience as possible.”That won’t be an easy goal to accomplish given the complicated nature of micro-betting. Micro-Betting vs Standard Betting, a Breakdown of the Two Different StrategiesFor anyone new to the sports gambling experience, bettors typically place traditional wagers on their favorite teams and matchups, like against the spread, money line, or total points bets, whereas micro-betting is a type of betting that's tied to the result of a play or series of plays. Levy likens the micro-bet experience to any other outing where entertainment on a budget is the primary goal, saying:“It’s like paying $20 to go to the movies. Take $20, and you bet $2 on a play, $5 on a drive, make it more engaging, and that’s it.”Fun stuff, but that action is technically complicated to execute.5 months ago WSN
