Around the Betting Industry
D.C.’s sports betting app will launch into a world with virtually no sports. The Office of Lottery and Gaming said it will release its citywide mobile sports betting app and website “by the end of the month.”
After a long wait, D.C. residents will finally get the online sports betting app they have been waiting for. However, it really couldn’t have come at a much worse time as virtually all sporting events across the globe are suspended or canceled. While there are a few select sporting events available across the globe, it is better to have the app launched for when traditional sports do return to action.

Gozetepe A.S. vs Caykur Rizespor – 1:00 PM
Like I said in today’s daily New Jersey FanDuel report, I know literally nothing about international soccer leagues. Turkish soccer is no different. However, it is one of the very few sporting options we have available to bet on here in the United States outside of the ponies (and I’ll take my chance on Turkish soccer over horse racing).
Two teams are playing today that not only can I not pronounce but technically I can’t even spell them right because a typical US keyboard doesn’t even have the correct letters to spell these team’s names. That doesn’t mean we can’t bet on them though.
A quick Google search will show you that Gozetepe (9-7-9 34 points) is currently in eighth place while Rizespor (7-4-14 25 points) is in 16th place. Gozetepe is 1-3-1 in their last five contests while Rizespor is just 0-4-1. Gozetepe has just a -1 goal differential while Rizespor has the third-worst GD at -16.
In their last eight contests, Rizespor has scored more than one goal only once when they scored just twice in one game. Gozetepe has been shutout in their last three contests and in their last six contests overall have just five goals with three coming in one game. A lot of times soccer games ended in draws that kill my bets and I feel like this game has a 1-1 draw written all over it. Maybe Gozetepe wins 2-0, who knows. As far as I know, this game will end up 5-6 but I’m going to roll with the Under 2.5 goals as that seems like the smartest bet from the outside looking in.
Pick: Under 2.5 Goals -103
