Antonella Barba Nude Photos Biggest Search Term, Bet What’s Next

Antonella Barba Antonella Barba was the most searched for term in the world for the ending week of February, up 47,000% from the previous week, and it is sparking a whole new realm of Internet betting.

Online sportsbooks, a quickly dying breed post UIGEA, have put odds on Angelina Jolie, Britney Spears, The Oscars, Political Events, and other things popular in American culture. The latest surge in searches for Antonella Barba may create a new thing for sportsbooks to put odds on – what will be the biggest search engine search terms for the next month?

The odds can be quite favorable in January of most years that the biggest search term will be ‘Superbowl’, or ‘NFL playoffs’, or such. In February favorable odds could be put on ‘Valentines Day’ or the ‘Oscars’. March could see the term ‘spring’ or ‘spring training’ or ‘spring break’. In April players could bet on the ‘Easter Bunny’ and in December perhaps people could bet on ‘Santa Claus’.

It would be interesting to see what some of the long shot odds would be. Would there even have been on odds on ‘Antonella Barba Nude Photos’? Or would there just be an ‘other’ category that would put out less challenging odds. Anyway it’s an interesting idea and you can bet that the sportsbooks will have odds out on search terms soon enough, even though top searches can be easily manipulated.

However, most of the bets that can placed on popular American cultural events you cannot make a fortune from, so manipulating search results may not be that important to bettors. The sportsbooks put caps on how much people are allowed to bet on cultural events. So you may be able to put a $50 bet on a long shot like Britney Spears sobering up in June, but you will not be able to bet more than that. The payout, though, could be lucrative, as currently the odds on the pop star sobering up in June are 55 to 1. So if you place the $50 bet you can win more than $2,500.

As the world turns, so will the world of online sports betting.

Amy Polumbo Betting

Amy Polumbo Betting on Release of Nude Photos Coming Soon

Play Now with Playboy Bunnies!

Gambling sites across the world must have mouths that are watering at the idea of another sexy scandal involving a semi-celebrity. This time the scandal involves newly crowned Miss New Jersey pageant winner Amy Polumbo.

The pretty new star supposedly released some photos on the website Facebook.com a few years ago and they are now coming back to haunt her. She received a letter earlier in the week saying that if she did not relinquish her pageant crown by today, the photos will be released to the world.

This is what has sportsbooks drooling. Currently there are no odds on whether Miss New Jersey will give up her crown in order to keep the photos private, but the lines are sure to come from sites like Bodog.com and Sportsbook.com, who regularly puts odds on celebrities doing things like this.

Former celebrity betting lines were if Britney Spears would divorce Kevin Federline, then she did. Other lines included if Paris Hilton would commit suicide while in a jail cell.

Ironically, Amy Polumbo has said that she will be promoting the Internet as a tool and a weapon, explaining the possibilities to America’s youths. She also said today that she will not be giving up her crown that she worked so hard for.

“It would certainly be easier for me to simply succumb to these unlawful and immoral threats, and quietly disappear,” she said Thursday.

The anonymous threat came in the form of a letter sent with the photos to the 22-year-old Howell High School graduate, her family members and pageant officials, said her attorney, Anthony R. Caruso of Archer and Greiner in Princeton.

They recently announced plans to launch a summer American Idol camp that will feature celebrity appearances that will help amateur singers grow into wannabe stars. And most importantly, the show has been exploited to the max by online sportsbooks.

The sportsbooks are seeing more action on American Idol in one week than they do on a year’s worth of a hockey season. On Tuesday the male contestants sing and all kinds of bets can be placed such as who will mess up the worst or who will get the biggest applause. Wednesday the same scenario’s are presented for the female contestants, and Thursday is the week’s grand finale of who will be voted off.

Meanwhile, bets can still be made on which past Idols will flop in the future, which will have the most record sales the next year, and even if Fantasia, who just announced tonight that she will star in the Broadway hit show The Color Purple, will succeed in her new role.

If you’re interested in betting on American Idol you can do it at Bodog, but understand that different sportsbooks offer different odds on different circumstances, so not all the bets included in this article can be found at any one sportsbook. However, the bets are out there and they are making online sportsbook betting thrive, all across the world.
