Where can I find quick, reliable everyday probability/statistical information on the net?

I am doing some quick and dirty statistical research for a project I'm working on. I'm looking for a site full of different sports/general life odds to compare against a set of odds I already have.
For example: Let's say "event x" has a probability of 1 in 5. I'm trying to put together statements like: "You have a better chance of 'event x' than ________________." I need to fill in that blank with different events with worse odds, hence I need to find a place where I can find already computed data to throw in there (IANAM). My primary focus is sports odds (not so much betting and team odds as event odds - like seeing a home run or grand slam at a baseball game, or bowing three strikes in a row).
I'm just looking for some high level sites. If you know of any sites with these fun little statistical facts throw them at me!
