Florida betting tout Adam Meyer pleaded guilty to extortion and racketeering Thursday in a scam that cost Fond du Lac millionaire Gary Sadoff $45 million — a sum that is nearly double the amount Meyer was originally charged with embezzling.
Meyer falsely claimed Real Money Sports used computer analysis and simulations to predict the outcome of games.

He previously claimed to have helped MLB with an investigation.

Yoo Chang-sik under police investigation for match-fixing

Say it ain’t you, Yoo. Say it ain’t Yoo.

South Korean police say they have investigated a baseball player who confessed to his team about match-fixing.

The investigation of Yoo Chang-sik, a left-handed pitcher for the Kia Tigers, came four days after prosecutors indicted two other players on match-fixing allegations.

According to police, Yoo told investigators Monday that he deliberately allowed walks in the first innings during two games in 2014 when he was playing for the Hanwha Eagles.

Police cited Yoo as saying he took a total of $2,640 in return from a broker.
