    Everyone I know that has upgraded to the iOS6 has been working themselves into a frenzy over the loss of Google Maps. I'm no fan of Apple Maps but one cool feature I've noticed since upgrading to iOS6 is that Siri now understands basic betting questions. For instance, when I asked Siri who will win between the Wildcats and Sooners this weekend, she replied "Apparently, the odds are in favor of the Sooners by 14 points. When I asked about the Tigers Vs the Seminoles she answered that the Seminoles are favorites by 14 points for this game.

    Pretty damn cool, right?

    That is awesome. Next time when I'm driving home from work and I want to know the betting on a particular NFL or NBA game, I can keep my hands on the wheel.

    Siri also knows scores now. This weekend I asked it who was winning the Chicago Bear / Jacksonville Jaguars game and it responded that Chicago was winning 41-3

    Hey Guys, thanks so much for the head-up on this cool new iphone feature. We've put together a little article with a few more examples of Siri answering sports questions HERE. We'd love to hear any other examples that you guys might have :)

    Siri also answers ice hockey and soccer betting questions.

    Does anyone know where Siri gets her gambling odds and betting lines from? I presume the guys in Cupertino haven't opened a sportsbook.

    I tried to get some sports betting information using Google Voice Search. What a waste of time. If you want your phones personal assistant to answer sports questions then avoid Android.

    Can I use Siri on the iPad or iPad Mini? I don't see any Siri icon on either of my tablets?

    Hey Mr Bobby, yes you can now use Siri on both the iPad and iPad Mini providing you are running iOS6 or later. To start Siri all you need to do is hold down the home key for a couple of seconds and Apple's personal assistant should start. If it doesn't activate you may need to check the settings of your iPad to make sure it is enabled.
  12. Does anyone know if it answers questions on cricket? Might be useful for The Ashes next month :)

    No, I don't think Siri is knowledgable about cricket yet. As far as I know it only offers advice on major sports(no offence) like baseball, basketball, football, soccer and ice hockey

    Will Siri on the Apple Watch be able to answer sports questions too and display betting information?

    Yes, I'm pretty sure that whatever Siri can do on the iPhone, she can also do in a more compacted form on the Apple Watch.
