Odds better James gets in fight with Cleveland fan than passes on powder toss

Gambling is bad, we certainly would never encourage it. You should not set up an offshore account and bet on unpredictable sporting events. You should definitely not take the Texans and the eight points against the Eagles on Thursday. This is strictly for entertainment.

That said, the proposition bets posted by on LeBron James’ and the Miami Heat’s return to Cleveland Thursday night are interesting.

You can get 30/1 odds that LeBron will get in a physical altercation with a fan in Cleveland (no, Leon Powe is still considered a player whether he gets to take the sweats off or not). The odds are 1/50 that James does his pregame powder toss.

To be clear, the odds are dramatically shorter that LeBron will get in a fight with a fan than skip his pregame ritual. Although, doing said ritual may bring him closer to the physical altercation (no, you can’t bet it as a parlay).

Other odds include the over/under on points James scores being 26.5, the over/under on assists is 7.5, on rebounds it is 7.

    I would take that. I don’t think anyone is going to get into a physical altercation with him and chances are good he’ll do the powder.

    My question is: Is there a rule that says they HAVE to have powder available to him? Does he bring it himself or is it at the table? If he doesn’t bring it himself, then I’d get rid of it altogether, just because it’s fun to be spiteful about things that don’t really matter.

    I do sincerely hope there is nothing overtly violent or dangerous involved. It’s still sports.
