Many sportsbooks are listing the Astros as favorites to win the World Series, followed by the Dodgers and the Yankees. The Astros are favored in part because of their dominant top three starting pitchers, Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole and Zack Greinke.

The jacket she's wearing is by the ultimate country chic label, Dubarry. Spotted on celebrities such as Geri Horner and Amanda Holden, Dubarry is the place to go for pieces that are functional as well as fashionable. What's more, it's an Irish brand! Another nice nod to their hosts.

Using at least two intermediaries, he has approached sports books in New Jersey about placing bets as large as $5 million, prompting FanDuel to seek a waiver from state gambling regulators of a rule limiting any single bet to $5 million. FanDuel decided on $1.5 million as the amount it will take from McIngvale at +220 odds, meaning he would win about $3.3 million if the Astros win baseball´s championship.

Last year, New York-based FanDuel reached an agreement for retail, online and mobile sports wagering services for The Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs. It's the company's first sports betting arrangement with a U.S. resort.

She added: 'I would say overall that all the dramas in the royal family and the split between the two brothers might have brought William and Kate even closer, with him appreciating the way she has shown her own strength and ability to take over, plus what has probably been her strong emotional support too.'

Meghan's last official engagement was to visit Canada House in London days before that announcement. The prince returned to royal duties at the end of last month, when the host at the event said people should just 'call him Harry' (they are pictured together at Mansion House on Thursday evening)

Adducci took $100,000 of his winnings and placed it on Woods to take the title at all four majors this season, according to Golf Digest, Judi Bola which confirmed the bet through sports book operator William Hill U.S. Adducci placed the bet at SLS Casino in Las Vegas, the same sportsbook where he gambled $85,000 on Woods to win the Masters at 14-to-1 odds.

The Duchess of Cambridge is a pro at adapting her style when on tour, whether she's dressing to the nines in The Vampire's Wife, or keeping things a bit more casual in the great outdoors, as she is here.

Meghan was carrying a Stella McCartney Lucia clutch. McCartney designed the duchess's halter neck evening wedding gown. Followers of the duchess's sartorial choices described her as looking 'terrific in turquoise'

Yesterday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a romantic clifftop walk in rural Ireland - accompanied by security - after visiting a cattle farm and meeting young people facing mental health issues and homelessness. 

The second leg of the Grand Slam, the PGA Championship, will be held next week at the Bethpage Black course in Farmingdale, N.Y., with the U.S. Open in June and the British Open in July. Woods is the betting favorite for the PGA Championship at 8-1, according to Westgate Sportsbook.

Harry, who has been made to give up his official patronages after deciding to move to Canada, is being allowed to retain his private links with organisations such as The Endeavour Fund, of which he is patron. 

Cue farce, attempts to convince people of what's happening, and to banish the undead ex back whence she came. It's beautifully silly. 'How could having cheese for lunch account for my having seen my deceased wife after dinner?' 'Well it was very rich,' is the reply.

No golfer has ever won all four modern majors in the same season, although Woods held all four titles at the same time over the 2000 and 2001 seasons. The term Grand Slam was coined in 1930, when Bobby Jones won the British Open, U.S. Open, U.S. Amateur and British Amateur.

The couple (pictured on Thursday evening) stop their royal duties at the end of the month as they seek to carve out 'a progressive new role', mainly based in North America, which they aim to finance themselves.

You'll get his trademark wit, with ectoplasm and ghosts ('My wife's funeral exhausted her!'). Two couples - four non-believers - invite Madame Arcati (Saunders) round for dinner, essentially to laugh at her as she strokes her crystal ball and howls into the night.

But it doesn't quite lift the play's baggy bits. Director Richard Eyre could have taken a pair of scissors to at least 30 of the two hours and 30 minute running time, and the attempts at stage trickery were pretty amateur. 

Saunders certainly carries the night, but doesn't make her entrance for a good while. Once on stage, she's at full throttle: twitching and licking her lips after gags and throwing herself into brilliantly ludicrous 'trances'.
