As the National Basketball Association (NBA) playoffs continue, Bookies Matrix examines how global operators price and present the sport to their customer base.After launching the Bookies Matrix service in July this year with an analysis piece on European soccer, we received multiple requests for a similar dive into US sports, and how global operators offer that product to their customers. Therefore, our article this month focuses on the NBA playoffs, taking a look at the differing margins and market sets offered on one of America’s most popular sports.Using data from NBA playoff games collected over the period 21 to 24 August, we calculated the ‘overround’ (see note at the bottom of the article) for key betting markets across all bookmakers in our database – 977 unique sites offer betting on the NBA, ranging across 98 jurisdictions.The table below groups the results by country and displays the average overround for the main handicap/spread market, the average overround for the main player total points markets, as well as the highest and lowest overrounds within each region. Regions: US Similar to our soccer analysis, across all regions, we see a trend of monopolies sitting on the right-hand side of the charts (higher margins) – this is most clearly demonstrated on the “Americas” tab.Across nearly every country, we see a clear difference between overrounds on the main handicap/spread market and player props markets. Omer Dor, co-founder, and CEO of Sports IQ Analytics, provided an explanation as to why this is the case.“The three main betting markets: the money line, spread and totals, have traditionally been those that have been the most visible to consumers,” he explained. “These three markets are the ones listed on the front pages of websites and on digital boards in Vegas casinos. So it makes sense that these are the markets where the vast majority of staking has historically come from, and therefore the ones on which bookmakers have been most aware of their competitive position.“While that might not change, there are interesting trends in the US that are developing. As consumer education around sportsbetting grows and more states introduce legislation to legalise the activity, there is increased adoption among non-traditional sports bettors,” he continued. “And the appetite of these new consumers is different. They want to interact with sports betting in a way that would be an extension to their sports entertainment activity. One of the main ways we’re seeing that come to fruition is with a demand for player prop markets.”Therefore, given this shifting consumer appetite, coupled with the now high accuracy of these lines, we expect to see the margins taken on player markets to converge to those on the historically popular team versions.The chart below adds in the number of markets offered by the bookmakers in our sample in order to show an overall competitive comparison. Note, we count all individual market instances including every ‘alternative line’ separately. The variance seen in overrounds in North America (mostly US) and Oceania (mostly Australia) is low, with most sitting around 1.035 to 1.045. We do however see much higher variance in the number of markets offered.Our African data shows generally higher positioned overrounds but lower variance in markets offered. The European data shows a number of ‘high margin-low markets’ and ‘low margin-high markets’ operators, however the vast majority fall within the 1.04 to 1.08 margin range with fewer than 200 markets each.The reason for the higher variance in number of markets in Australia and the US than elsewhere in the world is indeed driven by the availability of player props. In effect, there is a limit on the number of team related markets possible, any firm that offers more than this limit, is likely also offering player markets, as that limit is much higher.Omer Dor told us: “for every single player, we calculate the centre line and multiple alternative lines on either side.“We do this for a wide range of market types and across different periods. Theoretically, we could support a few thousand unique lines per match before we even consider player combinations. However, this is of course limited by how these markets can be presented to consumers. With that in mind, I would say that it’s not just about having the breadth of product scope, but the right building blocks to being able to create engaging betting products.”The following chart shows the proportion of bookmakers offering NBA betting within each jurisdiction which have player prop markets available.

The more mature markets of Oceania (Australia) and North America (U.S.) have a lower proportion of the three core metric markets (points, assists, rebounds) than within other regions, which may demonstrate consumer appetite for more and more betting options in these regions – a trend that we would expect to follow elsewhere.Finally of note, we were a little surprised by the absence of basketball bet builder (or same game multi/parlays) offered across the world. Given the popularity of the equivalent product for soccer, the clear and growing demand for a wide range of betting ‘metrics’ within basketball, and the continued need for product differentiation across many regions, we would expect this solution to be a clear one. In our overall sample, just under 5% of brands offered this product.In order to access any of the data discussed in this article, please don’t hestitate to get in touch.Calculating an overround To offer a refresh, the overround is calculated as the sum of the inverses of the decimal prices for each selection within a market.For example, given the money line market – 1.50 Dallas Cowboys vs. 2.50 New York Giants, the overround of this market is calculated as:1 / 1.50 + 1 / 2.50 = 0.667 + 0.400 = 1.067The overround is the standard industry measure of how much ‘margin’ is applied to sportsbetting markets – the higher the number, the higher the margin, where 1.00 represents no margin.Note, the overround is not the same as ‘expected’ or ‘achieved’ margin. It is a measure of how much a bookmaker would expect to take in stakes in order to expect to pay out one unit.Bookies Matrix is a recently launched research portal including a directory of all licensed sports betting operators in the world, providing a range of information about each brand including their licenses held, their relative size in each jurisdiction, their platform, data, odds, streaming, virtuals providers, plus details of their products, including sports and margins offered.The service updates continuously with changes such as new market entrants, lapsed licenses, product launches, as well as when new jurisdictions move online.As well as providing clients with access to data and analysis, Bookies Matrix will take requests for specific research projects that are relevant to individual clients.Sports IQ Analytics is a leading provider of odds feeds for the US sports betting industry.

The chart below shows the proportion of markets in each region that are within the most popular ‘metrics’ of player ‘points’, ‘assists’ or ‘rebounds’; those that allow a combination of those metrics for a single player; or those that are for a different metric such as ‘blocks’, ‘steals’, ‘3-pointers’, ‘field goals’.

We all occasionally fantasize about our dream home, but few of us ever manage to make it a reality. And how does the architect himself live? In this case, the private home of architect Hans van Heeswijk led to a spacious and light-filled house full of special details. The client and architect Van Heeswijk was encouraged not to settle for off-the-peg solutions. Instead, he seized the opportunity to work to a higher level of ambition in terms of how to use energy, how to maximize the potential of technology, how to respond to the context, and how to stretch the limits of what is possible. The result is a real machine for living in.

Some of these panels are positioned behind windows and can be opened automatically to allow light to enter. The waterfront façade, by contrast, is completely open and orientated to the view.Save this picture!© Imre Csany/Csany StudioOn the second floor, part of the volume is omitted to create space for a screened roof terrace. Typical of Van Heeswijk’s designs is the application of ‘timeless’ materials such as glass, steel, concrete and wood. The sensory experience is largely determined by the transparency achieved and a flowing spaciousness that extends from high to low and from big to small. Located in the centre of the plan is a core (the ‘magic box’) that rises the full three- storey height of the building and is wrapped in wenge timber for acoustic reasons. Save this picture!© Imre Csany/Csany StudioThe core contains storage closets, a toilet on every floor, cables and a dumbwaiter. Openings in the floor slabs create double height spaces in the large ground- floor dining area, a first-floor living area and second-floor master bedroom. Views become increasingly panoramic towards the top of the house. Balustrades made of glass ensure unobstructed views from the balconies.

When changing clothes in the bathroom, they throw the laundry into a tube that carries it down two floors to the washing machine. Once washed and ironed, the clothes are carried back upwards on a small lift. All of this underlines the effective and efficient design of the house.

From furniture, shelves, bathroom furniture, benches, cabinets, fireplace, long dining tables, a kitchen island with built-in dessert trolley to the door handles.

The Lao People’s Democratic Republic, referred to as the Lao PDR or Laos, has not recorded an increase in COVID-19 cases in 13 consecutive days as of April 25. The number of confirmed cases in the southeast Asian country is holding steady at just 19. Sixteen cases were confirmed in the capital Vientiane, while three were found in Luang Prabang. Seven people have recovered, reports Khaosan Pathet Lao (KPL), the news agency of the governing Lao People’s Revolutionary Party.Banners of the Lao People’s Revolutionary Party, the founding and governing Marxist-Leninist Party of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic, decorate a boulevard leading to the Patuxai victory arch in the center of Vientiane, March 17, 2006.A designated hospital in Vientiane, Mittaphab Hospital (Hospital 150), has treated all cases in the capital city, reducing the spread of infections in the hospital system.Laos announced its first cases on March 24, nearly a week after the government introduced such social distancing measures as closing all schools and many shops, closing all border checkpoints, and suspending the issuance of tourist visas for at least 30 days.Immunizations for children are still being carried out, as disrupting them could cause outbreaks of other diseases such as highly contagious measles. Dr. Panome Sayamoungkhoun, director of the Ministry of Health’s National Immunization Programme, stated: “Every infant and every child in the Lao PDR has the right to a healthy start to life that vaccines bring. Even though COVID-19 has arrived in our country, diseases such as measles, pertussis, diphtheria and many other vaccine-preventable diseases have not gone away. These diseases can still damage or even kill our children unless we vaccinate them.”Dr. Howard Sobel, the acting World Health Organization representative to the Lao PDR, said, “I’d like to commend the Lao Ministry of Health, the National Immunization Programme, and frontline health workers for continuing to provide lifesaving vaccines in these difficult circumstances.”Extra care is being taken to ensure the safety of continued immunizations. “To ensure the safety of health care workers and communities from COVID-19 infection during immunization services, social distancing, hand hygiene and utilization of protective equipment has been followed strictly,” said an April 25 article from KPLSocialist priority: Health of the peopleThe success of the Lao PDR in containing the disease draws in part from the experiences of its neighbors and fellow communist-led countries, Vietnam and China. Vietnam, with a population of 95 million, has had no confirmed deaths from the disease and only 270 cases. China, where the initial outbreak was first detected, has successfully halted the increase in confirmed new cases and its economy is already returning to normal.These three countries, while having less developed economies than Western countries, have nonetheless been able to prioritize public health needs and prevent the virus from killing the most vulnerable people. Through mass mobilizations of medical workers, party members and soldiers, they were able to quickly coordinate planned, successful responses to the worst pandemic in over a century.Despite a legacy of vicious imperialist war, Laos today has managed to score an important public health victory, while the country that sought to totally destroy it, the U.S., has more total COVID-19 cases and deaths than any other country in the world.Recovering from U.S. warLaos, like Vietnam, suffered greatly under French rule until 1954 and then endured a brutal U.S. war of aggression until 1975. That ended in communist victories, establishing the Lao People’s Democratic Republic and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. Laos has been described as the most heavily bombed country on Earth, with the U.S. having dropped nearly a ton of bombs for every person then living there.From 1964 to 1973, as part of the “secret war” against Laos, the U.S. dropped 2 million tons of bombs on the country, almost equal to the 2.1 million tons the U.S. used in all of Asia and Europe during World War II. An estimated 80 million bombs remain unexploded in Laos, making agriculture impossible in many areas and killing dozens of Laotians every year.At the end of the war, the Laotian economy and society were devastated, bombed back to a pre-industrial state. The residual effects of the war still create many challenges for the country’s economic recovery and development, but China and Vietnam have both worked with the Lao PDR to promote its development.In 2016 China and Laos jointly began work on the 257-mile Vientiane–Boten Railway. Set for completion next year, its trains will reach speeds of up to 160 kilometers an hour and will connect Laos to China’s vast rail network. A major part of the project includes clearing undetonated bombs along the line’s route, providing benefits beyond more efficient transportation.The new railway will also eventually form a route to Thailand and terminate in Singapore as part of a single railway network connecting all the countries of southeast Asia.Socialist solidarityVietnam has long been the largest partner of the Lao PDR, and the COVID-19 pandemic reaffirms the deep solidarity between the two countries. On April 21 the Vietnam-Laos Friendship Association announced through the Lao embassy that it will be donating medical supplies to Laos, including 500 protective suits and 18,500 face masks — including 17,500 medical masks and 1,000 antibacterial cloth masks.Vice President of the Vietnam-Laos Friendship Association Nguyen Manh Hung said: “That the gifts, despite being small, deeply reflected the sentiments of the Vietnam-Laos Friendship Association members toward the Lao people, contributing to promoting the special solidarity between the two nations and affirming their commitment to holding hands to overcome difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.” (n.nhandan.org.vn, April 21)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The Bench comprising of Justices Pankaj Mithal and Saurabh Lavania issued notice on the petition challenging the Constitutional validity of certain provisions of the said Act, returnable on November 23, 2020. In November 2017, the Seventh State Law Commission of UP, headed by Justice AN Mittal, had submitted a report, proposing to repeal 1166 “dead enactments” in the State of UP. The Commission had also submitted a Draft Bill titled UP Repealing & Amending Bill, 2018, in this regard. This report, inter alia, suggested that the UP Prohibition of Beggary Act should be repealed as “the purpose of this Act does not appear to have been achieved.” The Court has now sought response as to the Government’s take on this report. The order has been passed in a petition filed on behalf of one Ashma Izzat, who stated that the Act violates rights protected under Articles 14, 19 and 21 of the Constitution of India. The Court observed that the Petitioner has not disclosed full particulars as are required under the High Court Rules for maintaining a PIL. It therefore ordered thus: “Learned counsel for the petitioner is, therefore, permitted to file a supplementary affidavit disclosing the particulars and in the meantime Shri H.P. Srivastava, learned Addl. Chief Standing Counsel for the State-respondents may seek instructions in regard to the recommendation by the VII State Law Commission which had recommended for the repeal of the above Act.” Related News Last year, the Jammu and Kashmir High Court in Suhail Rashid Bhat v. State of J&K & Ors, struck down a similar law in J&K. The High Court had held therein: “The criminalization of begging, undeniably adversely impacts the most vulnerable people in the society i.e., that group of people who do not have access to basic essentialities as food, shelter, health and criminalization of begging ignores the reality that persons who are begging are the poorest of the poor and the most marginalized in the society.” The Delhi High Court in Harsh Mander v. Union of India struck down the Bombay Prevention of Begging Act, 1959 and observed, “The State simply cannot fail to do its duty to provide a decent life to its citizens and add insult to injury by arresting, detaining and, if necessary, imprisoning such persons, who beg, in search for essentials of bare survival, which is even below sustenance. A person who is compelled to beg cannot be faulted for such actions in these circumstances. Any legislation, penalizing the people therefore, is in the teeth of Article 21 of the Constitution of India.” Case Title: Ashma Izzat v. State of UP & Ors.

Evgen_Prozhyrko/iStock(SAN DIEGO) — One Southern California man has definitely added his name to the naughty list after he dressed up as St. Nick and wound up getting arrested.Chula Vista police arrested the suspect, who was sporting a red and white Santa ensemble, after he allegedly hit several parked vehicles and ran away from the scene early Monday morning, according to ABC San Diego affiliate KGTV.Officers were called to MacKenzie Creek Road, near Mount Miguel Road, at around 1:30 a.m. in response to reports of a Subaru Crosstrek that had hit vehicles parked on the street and one person who was injured on the roadway.According to witness accounts to police, the driver ditched his car after the collisions and left behind an injured passenger who was apparently ejected from the Crosstrek onto the street, KGTV reported. The unidentified injured passenger was taken to a nearby hospital and was treated for minor injuries.Despite dashing from his ride, the man left behind part of his costume along with his ID, which were found inside the car.“He was fully dressed as Santa Claus and I saw him hop out of the vehicle and I saw him run away … like ‘Bad Santa,’” one witness told KGTV.Chula Vista police were able to use the suspect’s ID to track down the driver at his home and took him into custody on unspecified charges.The driver was allegedly “going to be evaluated for a possible DUI,” KGTV said.The suspect’s name was not released.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
