Maria Kirilenko: +30000
As a sports bettors, our wagers shouldn't be affected by appearances but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. We here in the Covers.com news room often find ourselves betting on the hotter women on tour even when it's a bad bet. Here are a few lovely ladies we'll be rooting for during Wimbledon which starts Monday. Russian beauty Maria Kirilenko kicks off our list at 300/1 at bet365.com.
Julia Goerges: +8000
There's something we need to get off our chests. We love boobs... I mean, we love Julia Goerges. The 16th-ranked woman in the world has never made it past the second round of Wimbledon but we're betting on a deeper run this year for the 22-year-old German.
Dominika Cibulkova: +12500
An abdominal injury took away this Slovakia native's chance of doing some damage at the French Open but she's looked good in the grass warm-up tourneys.
Ana Ivanovic: +6600
If looks could kill, our girl Ana wouldn't have to worry about her dying talents. She'd just stare down her opponents and they'd crumble to her goddess beauty. Anyway, Ivanovic used to be a candidate to win at every slam event but this is 2011, not 2008.
Caroline Wozniacki: +1000
Wozniacki has owned the top ranking in women's tennis for the better part of a year but she can't seem to maintain her focus or up her game in the later stages of slam tourneys. She's made it to the fourth round at Wimbley the past two years. She's never sniffed a final at the All-England Club.
Maria Sharapova: +450
Outside of vintage 90s Anna Kournikova, it doesn't get any sexier than Maria Sharapova on the courts. And unlike her Russian comrade, Sharapova can play. It's been a few years since her last major tourney win, but she's been knocking on the door. bet365.com have her as the second favorite, behind Serena Williams, to win Wimbledon.

Derek Jeter: Ghosts of girlfriends past slideshow
Earlier this year, ESPN's SportsNation unveiled a great graphic of Derek Jeter's Dating Diamond, featuring some of the legend's amazing lineup of past girlfriends. Following the Captain's final All-Star appearance Tuesday evening, we thought we'd throw together a slide show featuring his exes. Respect indeed.

"Kirilenko & Ana Ivanovic are my two favs."
Now at a RIDICULOUS 82 GAMES OVER .500 YTD, Power Sports' 2016 MLB season is some of the finest work we have EVER seen! He's 5-1-1 the L2 days!
Of course, Power is also known for doing "fine work" in football as well! After a LEGENDARY 94-62-3 ($20,528) NFL season last year, he is already an *AMAZING* 21-8 w/ ALL football (CFL/Arena/NFLX) YTD!
1* Pittsburgh (8:10 ET): This is a revenge spot for the Bucs. Given the 3.5 game deficit they currently face in the NL Wild Card race, it's something they must take advantage of. Their opponents (Milwaukee) come in riding a four-game win streak, but that's only served to drive the price down to a point we can now exploit. Great price on the better team tonight.
Prior to last Saturday, the Pirates had yet to lose a start made by Chad Kuhl. He came in w/ a 6-0 TSR. Despite allowing only three runs (one unearned) to Miami, he took the loss in a series that did not go well for Pittsburgh. But I'll certainly take Kuhl over Milwaukee's Wily Peralta, who checks in w/ a 6.00 ERA and 1.738 WHIP over 16 starts this year. Last time out, Peralta was roughed up for four runs in six innings at Seattle. He was a big underdog in this spot, so there looks to be tremendous value in going against him here. The Pirates offense ranks sixth this year in on base percentage.
The Brew Crew have not lost since the last time Peralta started, but I don't put a ton of stock into a sweep of the Rockies. It is unfathomable to me that Pittsburgh is just 17-64 its L81 games here at Miller Park, but remember that includes some real 'lean years' here in the Steel City. I really like the road team at this price. 1* Pittsburgh
