Football Betting: 4 Mistakes All Gamblers Need to Avoid

Whether it is on the Super Bowl or a local college game, most football fans have bet on the sport somehow. After all, it’s a quick way to win some extra cash while also upping the excitement levels of supporting a team.

However, gambling is not an innocent activity. Statistics suggest one percent of adults in the US have developed a severe gambling problem, leading to severe debt and various mental health problems. As a result, you must take care when placing any football wagers – always gamble responsibly and know where your limit is.

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to have a more pleasant – and successful – experience when betting on football. Here are four mistakes you need to avoid.
1. Gambling without a budget

Not having a set budget is dangerous for any gambler. It’s all too easy to place a bet here and there, a few dollars each time, and suddenly rack up a betting bill of a few hundred dollars each month. While high rollers can afford to splash out that type of money without any care, it’s not in the budget for the average person.

Budget is the operative word. When gambling, always have a set amount of money that you can afford to lose. By budgeting, this ensures you won’t be putting your electric bill or mortgage payments at risk.
2. Not looking around at which betting platforms are available

When you’ve settled on the idea of having a bet on football, you will go through the standard process: visit Google, type in “betting sites”, and click on the first result that pops up.

However, this isn’t a wise approach to take. There are many, many different online betting platforms. Plus, each offers its own promotional offers, odds, sports/events coverage, deposit options, etc. This is why sports betting online at Oddsshark.com makes perfect sense. With this site, you can compare the best betting platforms, see which feature the best promotions and odds, and pick the one that will provide the best bang for your buck.
3. Placing too many wagers

Any experienced gambler will know there’s one quality that is needed when betting on sports: patience. Newcomers are often swept up in the excitement of gambling, leading to them making multiple bets.

The problem with this is they’ll venture outside of their comfort zone, football, and start betting on other sports. This is particularly the case when waiting for the next round of football fixtures to come around. You must stick with what you know – otherwise, you are going down a blind alley when betting on other sports.
4. Chasing your losses

When you lose on a bet, there is always a temptation to look for another opportunity to win your money back quickly. Always avoid doing this when betting. Stick within your budget, let the loss go, and remain patient as you search for another realistic chance to win when betting on football.

The Moon names we use in The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from Native American, Colonial American, or other traditional sources passed down through generations. A variety of Native American societies traditionally used the monthly Moons and nature’s corresponding signs as a calendar to track the seasons.

Today, December’s full Moon is most commonly known as the Cold Moon—a Mohawk name that conveys the frigid conditions of this time of year, when cold weather truly begins to grip us.

New York, December 24, 2020 – Tomorrow, Eddie Vedder releases the five-song Matter Of Time bundle. Just in time for Christmas, he expands on the previously released two-track set and collects a series of acoustic songs and covers performed and recorded throughout 2020. He presents all of these tracks together for the first time in one comprehensive collection which also includes an acoustic cover of Bruce Springsteen’s song “Growin’ Up.”

Get Matter Of Time available tomorrow at all digital streaming partners HERE via Monkeywrench/Republic Records.

Among the additions, the project includes a powerful acoustic rendition of “Future Days” from the 2020 Game Awards, which he performed remotely and beamed into the show. The track originally concluded Pearl Jam’s 2013 tenth album Lightning Bolt and also appeared in the blockbuster video game The Last of Us Part II as a tearful and poignant goodbye between main characters Ellie and Joel. Meanwhile, Matter Of Time includes emotionally charged and energetic at-home performances of classics “Porch” and “Just Breathe” captured for Amazon.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

He initially introduced Matter Of Time with the title track “Matter of Time” and “Say Hi.” Check out the animated music video for “Matter of Time” and live video for “Say Hi.” Fans may reserve the vinyl HERE and limited-edition event poster HERE (designed by renowned contemporary illustrator and artist Munk One, with all proceeds benefiting EBRP).

Eddie personally premiered both songs as part of Venture Into Cures. As co-founders of EB Research Partnership (EBRP), Jill and Eddie Vedder proudly presented the digital event live streamed free to viewers around the world on the official YouTube channels and Facebook pages of both Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam as well as on the EBRP site and social media platforms and NUGS.net. Fans everywhere tuned in to support.

The event showcased uplifting stories about individuals and families living with Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) alongside appearances and performances from celebrity friends to educate viewers about EB and raise critical funds for research toward a cure for EB and other rare diseases.

Produced by Door Knocker Media and Seed Entertainment, an all-star cast of guests graced the show, namely Judd Apatow, Bradley Cooper, Laura Dern, Billie Eilish, Chris Hemsworth, Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman, Gaten Matarazzo, Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, Adam Sandler, and Renée Zellweger.

EB is a life-threatening genetic disorder that affects approximately 500,000 people worldwide. Called “Butterfly Children” because their skin is as fragile as the wings of a butterfly, children with EB face severe pain, open external and internal wounds, and a grueling daily bandaging process. There is currently no treatment or cure for EB, however, EBRP’s innovative Venture Philanthropy model is helping to fast-track not only a cure for EB but therapies that could affect thousands of other rare diseases.

As the largest global organization supporting EB research, EBRP has funded 80 projects through their innovative model, directly impacting the clinical landscape. Through EBRP’s work, clinical trials for EB have increased by 15 times, including four Phase III clinical trials, the final phase before the FDA considers approval for a new therapy.

Cool, New Bicycle Gadgets Hitting the Market In 2021

The new year will see the release of several notable cycling gadgets. Find out more about the latest all-in-one cycling computers, smart helmets and visibility solutions that will debut in 2021. Whether you ride a manual bike or are considering an electric bike for sale, such as a beach cruiser electric bike, this high-tech gear can help you make the most of every ride.

Next-Generation Bike Computers

Several activity trackers purpose-built for cyclists have been released over the last several years. More comprehensive and powerful bike computers are set to launch next year. Look for systems that roll navigation and fitness tools in with hands-free notifications and innovative new visibility and security solutions.

Most bike computers provide GPS functionality and compile ANT+ sensor readings for ride metrics. Systems scheduled for release in 2021 provide more robust technical support. Some cycling computers sync with other riders for social riding functions and progress updates and provide a suite of safety functions such as smart lighting and incident detection.

Smart Helmets and Safety Solutions

Helmets are essential bike accessories for women, and a number of manufacturers have sought to find ways to extend the functionality of this protective gear. Smart helmet designs provide impact protection for the head and neck, and most of the latest systems also feature crash sensors that can notify preset emergency contacts.

A number of the smart helmets hitting the market in 2021 have integrated features that contribute toward cyclists’ riding experiences while increasing their overall levels of safety. Look out for the latest helmet designs with built-in LED safety lights and direction indicators. Most systems come with controllers that can be mounted to bike handlebars or worn by riders for easy access.

Interior communication and entertainment features such as Bluetooth speakers and a built-in microphone enable a rider to stay connected while keeping his or her hands on the handlebars and eyes on the road. Other intelligent protective gear includes cycling eyewear with augmented reality features that is capable of displaying direction indicators, maps and performance metrics.

New Ways To Increase Visibility

Bike lights and illuminated wearables are still leading trends in cycling gadgetry. This gear is becoming more sophisticated with the release of an integrated headlight and handlebar system that boasts bright headlights and handlebar blinkers along with integrated bike computer features such as GPS tracking, turn-by-turn navigation, and a visual speedometer.

Other new gadgets that are useful for increasing visibility on low-light rides include forward-projecting wheel lights and clothing with lights that can be turned on and off. Glowing wearables such as LED vests can also be useful, and these designs now provide visibility from every direction and multicolor illumination. A number of major visibility innovations are built into bike computers or smart helmet lighting systems.

All of this gadgetry can enhance riders’ safety levels with hands-free communication solutions, directional and navigational tools and methods for increasing visibility. Keep in mind that the quality of your ride will ultimately only be as good as your bike, which should be the right build for your riding style.




Named for the city that launched the original Alice Cooper group on the road to success, “Detroit Stories” follows last year’s “Breadcrumbs” EP as a modern-day homage to the toughest and craziest Rock n Roll scene there ever was.

In 1970, fledgling producer Bob Ezrin walked into a farmhouse on the outskirts of Detroit to work with the Alice Cooper band. Abandoning flower power Los Angeles, because they were the opposite of the hippie peace and love ideal, Alice had brought his decidedly darker gang back to his birthplace to the legendary rock scene that gave birth to hard rock, garage rock, soul, funk, punk…and more.

From the amazing Johnny Bee Badanjek:

Hi Kim!

Here's a picture from the studio in Royal Oak.
L. to R. Johnny Bee Badanjek, drums. Paul Randolph, bass, Garrett Bielanic, lead guitar, Wayne Kramer, lead guitar, Producer Bob Ezrin, Alice Cooper, vocals!

“Detroit Stories” will be available on CD, CD+DVD Digipak, CD Box Set (including CD, Blu-ray, T-shirt, face mask, torchlight, and 3 stickers. 2LP Gatefold on earMUSIC

The DVD and Blu-ray will show the incredible live performance “A Paranormal Evening At The Olympia Paris” for the first time on video.

Detroit was Heavy Rock central then,” explains Alice, “You’d play the Eastown and it would be Alice Cooper, Ted Nugent, the Stooges, and The Who, for $4! 

The next weekend at the Grande it was MC5, Brownsville Station and Fleetwood Mac, or Savoy Brown or the Small Faces. You couldn’t be a soft-rock band or you’d get your ass kicked.”

“Los Angeles had its sound with The Doors, Love and Buffalo Springfield,” he says, “San Francisco had the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane. New York had The Rascals and The Velvet Underground. But Detroit was the birthplace of angry hard rock. After not fitting in anywhere in the US (musically or image-wise) Detroit was the only place that recognized the Alice Cooper guitar-driven, hard rock sound, and our crazy stage show. Detroit was a haven for the outcasts. And when they found out I was born in East Detroit… we were home.”

It looks like the celebrities have taken a break from the modern look and have opted for a more vintage look. You will find celebrities like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Dita von Teese, Scarlett Johansson, and many others going for this look.

Taylor swift mentioned: “There’s just something so feminine about a dress. Whether it’s a summertime dress that makes me feel carefree, an evening cocktail dress that makes me feel fancy, or a dress that makes me feel like a ’50s housewife — which I enjoy feeling like, for some reason — I just really like dresses,”

Let’s take another celebrity for instance that has been obsessed with the retro look- Megan Markle has been into the 50s/60s look lately. Yes, the Royal loves this look! Markle has been heavily inspired by style icon Audrey Hepburn.

Rihanna for instance went to the Coachella in April with a retro hairstyle. Many other celebrities love the 50s/60s look.

Going retro still remains as glamourous as ever, be it their curly short hair, wing liner, nice and simple makeup, deep dark brown hair with their nail polish that matches with their lips. That’s pure retro. Women with this style do not go for highlights and their hair is always dark brown.

Nicole Richie is another celebrity that cannot get enough of the 60s and 70s fashion. She says that her mom gives her skirts. She says in a magazine: "She kept all of her old Alaia skirts, which is pretty amazing because now I don't have to buy my ones!"

We all know how Miley Cyrus came in like a wrecking ball. Well her style has hit her fans so hard. She is obsessed with the 80s leather jacket and boots look. As for January Jones, she loves the 60s. She mentioned: "The long-line bra with the pointy tips and the girdle and then the stocking on the garter belt, I like the shape it gives me. It's kind of sad when you take the girdle off at the end of the day.’’

So, there you have it! Don’t be afraid to add a little retro to your wardrobe soon!
