Bailey points finger at Australia’s top order

first_imgGEORGE Bailey believes Australia’s top order should take their share of responsibility for the team’s poor performances in South Africa so far.The tourists suffered a six-wicket defeat as Quinton de Kock ran riot in the opening one-day international in Centurion, before Faf du Plessis’ century inspired a 142-run win for the hosts in Johannesburg.Australia’s young bowlers have borne the brunt of the criticism for their expensive figures in the wake of those defeats, but Bailey insists the team’s batsmen also have a case to answer.“We’ve certainly got a young bowling attack, but I think the thing that’s been the most disappointing is our batting in the last two games,” he is quoted as saying by ESPN Cricinfo.“We were under par in game one and 360 is a big total, but you saw it on that ground it was great value for money, the ball flew everywhere and our run rate was going pretty well.“All the batters are hitting the ball pretty well, it’s just that nobody’s getting a hundred and the South Africans have had a guy score a hundred in each of those games.“As much as the focus could be on our young bowling attack, I think it’s the batters who have got to step up.”Victory for South Africa in Durban today will wrap up victory in the five-match series for the Proteas.( read more

Super Bowl prop bets 2019: National anthem, halftime show, coin toss and more obscurities

first_imgPregame Super Bowl prop bets(Bets can be made online via BetOnline)Will the opening coin toss land heads or tails?This one is pretty straightforward. Last year was heads, but the four Super Bowl coin flips before that resulted in tails. We already know the Patriots always choose heads, so if you think it’s their lucky year, perhaps you’ll go that route.Will the length of the national anthem exceed 1 minute, 50 seconds?Now’s the perfect time to study all of the Gladys Knight Youtube footage you can find. You might as well make a whole day of notetaking on how the Empress of Soul enunciates words and approaches live events. What will anthem singer Gladys Knight wear?The choices are dress/skirt or pants/shorts. What you really need to know is whether the Mercedes-Benz Stadium retractable roof will be open or not — if there’s a winter breeze, perhaps Knight will stick with pants. Do your research here.Will Bill Belichick or Sean McVay be shown first on TV during the anthem?We’re not sure how to approach this beyond taking a wild guess. For what it’s worth, Belichick is the slight betting favorite.Prop betOddsSportsbookCoin tossHeads -105/Tails -105BetOnlineAnthem lengthOver -120/Under -120BetOnlineWhat will Gladys Knight wear?Dress or skirt -200/Pants or shorts +150BetOnlineWho will be shown first during anthem?Belichick -130/McVay -110BetOnlineWill Gladys Knight kneel during anthem?Yes +150/No -120BetOnlineWill Gladys Knight omit a word from national anthem?Yes +400/-700BetOnlineGladys Knight’s microphoneOn stand -150/Off stand +125/Head set +1400BetOnlineHalftime show Super Bowl prop bets(Bets can be made online via MyBookie)What song will Maroon 5 open halftime with?Time to dig into the discography of Maroon 5. Will the group start with a made-for-radio pop anthem or … well, that’s pretty much what it’s going to be. Which song is anyone’s guess, though “One More Night” is currently the favorite.Will Adam Levine wear a leather jacket?Probably.Will Andre 3000 join Big Boi on stage?We can only hope the second half of Outkast will make an appearance, as it would only be fitting for the renowned rapper to roll through given the group’s Atlanta roots and continued popularity.Will any performer fall down?The very existence of this prop bet makes us suspect a performer will indeed fall down. Maybe Adam Levine and his leather jacket will take it one dance step too far, or a backup dancer will eat dirt.

Tom Brady, of course, is too cool for our peasant sports drinks. But Jared Goff probably is down for some blue drink (undoubtably the best flavor), and it would make sense for him to be in charge of selecting the color given his 32-touchdown season.Will there be a flea-flicker?The Patriots tried a flea-flicker in overtime of the AFC championship game against the Chiefs. Knowing how much Bill Belichick gets a kick out of making opposing coaches look foolish, it wouldn’t be surprising to see another one here.Who will MVP mention first in postgame speech?

For many watching the big game, it’s also a mecca for absurd prop bets.Want to wager on whether there will be a safety in Super Bowl 53? What about the length of the national anthem, or which song Maroon 5 will sing first in its halftime show performance? If the answer is yes, you’ve come to the right place. Sporting News embarked on a search to find the funniest and most bizarre ways you can win money beyond the Super Bowl 53 betting line.
