BetEagle.com Posts Tocchet Trial Odds

10 Feb 2006

SAN JOSE, Costa Rica – (PRESS RELEASE) -- Since opening the doors in 1997, one of the most respected names in on-line gaming has been taking bets from professional athletes, some retired and others currently playing. BetEagle.com customers include various Hall of Fame greats. These gamers represent an abundance of players from the NHL, NBA, MLB, NFL and fight sports alike.

This past weekend millions of Americans bet on Super Bowl XL, turning over billions of dollars. About $95 million of the billions were wagered at "legal" sports books in the state of Nevada. The balance was wagered legally on the internet, in office pools, amongst friends or with local "bookies." These athletes constitute part of the "American" population and enjoy the entertainment value of an afternoon wager.

"It's unfair to single out professional athletes for wanting to post-up on a game or an entertainment prop bet like the upcoming Oscars. As well, the perception that these athletes have any advantage over the recreational gambler is wrong. The handicappers are the ones with the information. Generally when we hear about athletes and gambling it's their debts that make the news," said Travis Preston of BetEagle.com. "Actually the mistake that Tocchet and Janet Gretzky made was going old school. They should have opened an account with us and been doing this on-line with the same confidentiality we offer all our customers, including pro athletes, celebrities and corporate executives."

In the spirit of gaming entertainment BetEagle.com posts odds on the Tocchet Trial Outcome:

Convicted & Jail Time - 250

Convicted & Probation - 600

Not Guilty + 400
