Daily Fantasy Sports' moment appears to have passed

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to one report, the future of Daily Fantasy Sports doesn't sound all that promising.


 "International expansion may provide room for minor incremental growth, and there’s always a number of customers who weren’t legally able to play real-money DFS last year due to age restrictions that can now, but those sources aren’t anywhere near enough to get the two companies back on the growth track."

Looking at Google Trends search volume for "daily fantasy sports," traffic was significantly lower in 2017 than it was in 2016, which Eilers & Krejcik Gaming says indicates a decline in interest among new customers. It believes that the downward trend will continue into 2018.

Good article on the NBA's strength of schedule the remainder of the season. Despite playing in the Western Conference, the Golden State Warriors have the easiest remaining slate. The Washington Wizards, who according to ESPN's SOS have played the easiest schedule of any team in the league, will now face one of the toughest.

Super Bowl LII Gambling: Las Vegas bettors continue to load up on the Eagles

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sometimes, handicapping the Super Bowl is requires nothing more than checking out Twitter and the mainstream media. Thus far, the storyline has been multiple "big" bets taken by Las Vegas sportsbooks on the Philadelphia Eagles. When you see numbers like "80%" on one side of the biggest and most wagered on sporting event of the year, it makes it really difficult to not be at least somewhat interested in the other side.


"He's one of the guys who was floating around betting all that money on the World Series," veteran Las Vegas bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro, now of the South Point, told the Associated Press. "I don't think he lost a bet then, we'll see how he does now."

"Yeah, I've got him, too," Avello said Monday of the return of the World Series bettor.

Nearly 80 percent of the money bet on the point spread was on the Eagles at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook, including some wagers placed by respected bettors Monday. The Westgate SuperBook trimmed the point spread to Patriots -4

Leagues want a piece of legalized sports betting

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In terms of the five major sports bet on in the United States (NBA, MLB, NFL, CFB and CBB) there is simply no way of knowing the actual size of the market. What we do know is a vast majority of the money being wagered is either offshore and or offscreen (i.e. local bookmakers). Various sports leagues appear to be gearing up for some sort of regulation and of course, they want a piece. The NBA says it wants 1 percent of every bet made. That's a fine idea but 1% of every bet made at U.S. regulated sportsbooks would be peanuts compared to what has and will continue to be wagered on offshore. Under the proposed format (increased juice, limits, credit cards and the potential to be taxed), there is simply no reason to think serious bettors, who account for a vast majority of the world wide handle, are going to play at an U.S. regulated online sportsbook. Maybe the leagues already understand that. But we can’t help but get the feeling that this projected “explosion” of sports betting, should it be legalized, is not Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots

Jacksonville at New England
Sunday, Noon PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: New England -8 O/U 46.5
CRIS Current: New England -7 O/U 46
Recommendation: New England

There’s plenty of buzz on the Jacksonville Jaguars here in Las Vegas. I’ve been hearing all week about how well the Jaguars match up with the Patriots and how the warm weather in Foxboro (gametime temperatures in the 40’s) is a major boost for Jacksonville’s chances. Throw in a mysterious Tom Brady hand/wrist injury that kept him out of practice on Thursday and all of a sudden, we’re seeing New England priced in the -7 range at home.

First and foremost; make no mistake about it: Tom Brady is going to play on Sunday. According to the Boston Globe’s Jim McBride, the Hall of Fame QB “didn’t seem hampered in any way” in the part of Wednesday’s practice that reporters were allowed to watch. And Brady consistently misses at least one day of regular practice during the regular season to rest his aging body. The Brady media buzz is just that – media buzz, Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After seeing early money come in on both favorites for Sunday's NFL Conference Championship matchups, it's the underdogs that are now seeing support. New England opened -8 vs. Jacksonville and was bet up to as high as -9.5. The Patriots are now -8.5 offshore and -9 at a majority of the Las Vegas sportsbooks. Minnesota opened -3 at Philadelphia. The Vikings saw early action that drove the line up to -3.5. All of the -3.5s have currently been taken out with Minnesota now -3 both offshore and in Vegas. According to Sports Options, 63% of the "betting public" is on the Patriots with 58% have supported the Eagles.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Jersey Devils at New York Islanders

New Jersey -120 at NY Islanders O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Over

Betting New York Islanders games over the total has proven to be a meal ticket and season long cash cow for me this season. The Isles enter tonight’s game at 30-12 O/U and none of it is by accident. New York has an offense that doesn’t need many chances or scoring opportunities to produce goals. The Islanders are averaging 3.44 goals per game this season which improves to 3.81 goals per game on home ice. New Jersey is having a brutal time of it in terms of keeping the puck out of their own net. The Devils have surrendered 3+ goals in six straight games and a total of 26 goals allowed during that span so it is not surprising to see them trending 5-1 O/U during this stretch. Cory Schneider tonight’s starting goalie for New Jersey and their #1 netminder has hit a rough patch lately allowing 4 or more goals in five consecutive starts and the Over has cashed in each of those five games. I would expect the NY Islanders to find the back of the net early and often tonight as they have in most of their games throughout the season. On the flip side, for as good Read more

NFL Playoff Gambling: Betting public on New England despite double-digit pointspread

01.11.2018     11:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Under Bill Belichick, the New England Patriots have been consistent profit producers. Including the postseason, the Patriots are 185-128-9 (59.1%) against the spread. But as the pointspread climbs, the results aren't nearly as strong. As a favorite of -7 or more, 66-61-4 (52.0%). And as double-digit favorites, like they are against the Tennessee on Saturday, 27-30-1 (47.4%). But that hasn't stopped the betting public from offering their support. According to Bookmaker.eu, 70% of bets taken have been on the Patriots.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Duquesne Dukes at VCU Rams

Duquesne at VCU -8.5 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: VCU

Duquesne first-year head coach Keith Dambrot has done a marvelous job as the Dukes enter tonight's game at VCU with a 12-4 record including a 3-0 mark in A-10 play. To compare, a season ago, Duquesne won just 10 games and three games in league play. One thing the Dukes have been able to do is defend. Their first three A-10 opponents averaged only 51.6 ppg. But the team's strength of schedule needs to be called into question. There are 351 college basketball teams and Duquesne's SOS is currently 349th according to Sagarin. And despite being 12-4 and playing an ultra-soft slate, the Dukes are only +0.8 in efficiency. Without question, tonight serves as their toughest game to date. VCU has had its struggles as they adjust to life under first-year head coach Mike Rhoades. But after a tough non-conference slate and 5-5 start, the Rams have won five of six with the lone loss coming in overtime on the road against St. Joe's. Duquesne has been able to thrive thus far on gritty play, an underdog mentality, and as mentioned, a favorable schedule. The reality is this squad doesn't have much and Read more
