NBA Gambling Update: Sacramento Kings are a hilarious nightmare

02.11.2016     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Let's just recap the last two-plus weeks for the Sacramento Kings. On Jan. 23, they notched their fifth straight win with a dominant 108-97 victory over Indiana. Reaching the postseason, while far from certain, didn't seem all that far fetched at the time. Two nights later, they fell at home in overtime to Charlotte. Tough loss but no biggie. Then the Kings hit the road for a three-game swing which produced three straight non-convering losses. They bounced back at home with a win over Milwaukee but lost to the Bulls two days later.

Losers of five of six, the team was then tasked with a four-game East Coast trip before the All-Star Break. They tanked hard at Brooklyn, trailing 103-85 prior to the fourth quarter in what ended up being a 9-point loss. And then lost to Boston by an identical 128-119 score. Things really started to boil over after they got smoked by Cleveland 120-100. This is when news surfaced that players allegedly didn't show up for shootaround and George Karl was on his way out. Karl was somehow given a vote of Read more

Super Bowl 50 Prop Bet Pick: Carolina Panthers Player Rushing Attempts

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Carolina Over 4.5 players to get a Rush Attempt  (+140 Superbook)
Jonathan Stewart will be the starting running back.  Cam Newton had at least three rushing attempts in every game, averaging just shy of eight per contest.  Fullback Mike Tolbert had at least one rush in 17 of the Panthers 18 games; at least two rushes in 16 of those games.  Those three are virtual ‘locks’ to get a carry.

But at least four other Panthers have a decent shot to get a carry on Sunday, making the Over 4.5 a worthy wager at this attractive plus price.  I wrote up my rational for Ted Ginn above.  Corey Brown is another speedster, with six rushing attempts during the regular season, five of which gained seven yards or more.  Backup RB Cameron Artis Payne had 36 carries in four games down the stretch, and he’s certainly could to see the field here after missing the NFC Championship Game.  And third down back Fozzy Whittaker, banged up down the stretch, is ‘live’ to get a carry (or two, or three) as well.  Whittaker had 16 carries in their final four regular season games and two more in the NFC title Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Big East home courts amongst weakest in the country

02.03.2016     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On yesterday's Sportsmemo Podcast we spoke about the overall balance of the Big East as well as the lack of home court strength. On the season, Big East home teams are 21-26 SU -- the second lowest winning percentage of any conference in the country. The posterchild for this dichotomy has been the Providence Friars who have three Big East home losses (Marquette, Seton Hall, and Xavier) and four impressive road victories (Creighton, Butler, Villanova, and Georgetown). The results thus far are probably an outlier as home teams won at a 60% clip the previous two seasons. Three Big East games on the docket for tonight: St. John's at Xavier (-22), Creighton at Villanova (-12), and Marquette at Seton Hall (-7.5).


"It's been an unusual year in college basketball overall. Traditional theories don't seem to be holding true this season, so I guess it stands to reason that the home court hasn't been such a home-court advantage for pretty much everyone in our conference."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 50 Prop Bets

02.01.2016     09:00 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When I talk with casual fans in the week leading up to the Super Bowl, they tend to be interested in my opinion about who is going to win the big game. But when I’m talking with bettors, not fans, the topic inevitably turns towards props; where sports betting and fantasy sports collide.

Props have been on the Las Vegas betting boards for thirty years. It all began when the juggernaut 1985 Chicago Bears were facing the Patriots in Super Bowl 20. Legendary Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro was a very creative bookmaker at the Mirage (at the time), looking for ways to increase their betting handle. Vaccaro posted odds on whether 350 pound defensive lineman William ‘Refrigerator’ Perry would score a touchdown in the big game. Vaccaro certainly didn’t think it was likely, offering attractive underdog odds for those who wanted to bet on The Fridge would hit paydirt in the end zone.

Vaccaro’s unique offering attracted all kinds of attention both from bettors and from media types. It also accomplished his goal of increasing betting handle, with money pouring in on the ‘Yes, Fridge will score a TD’ side of the prop at big (but Read more

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable. The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers. From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deal that pumps more than three billion dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early primer on betting Super Bowl 50

01.25.2016     08:53 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl 50 matchup is set.   In the end, second best didn’t cut it.  The team with the very best defense in the NFL this season – Denver – won a pair of tight home playoff games against banged up foes to return to the big game for the second time in three seasons.  The Broncos are set to face the team with the very best quarterback in the NFL this season – Carolina, with Cam Newton behind center; a Panthers team that finished with the best record in the league. 

The best quarterback vs. the best defense!  We saw this two years ago, when Peyton Manning set records with his play, but Manning tailed off down the stretch and the Seattle Seahawks elite defense controlled the flow right from the get-go in the biggest Super Bowl Blowout of the 21st century.

The irony here, of course, is that two years ago, Denver was here due to Peyton Manning, and they lost the Super Bowl to the league’s best defensive team.  Only two years later, Denver is here because THEY have the best defense in the NFL, facing off against an emerging yet elite dual threat quarterback.  That defense didn’t perform Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Michigan State Spartans

Nebraska at Michigan State -14.5 O/U 142
Recommendation: Under


Two teams heading in opposite directions will meet tonight in East Lansing. The visiting Cornhuskers come in on a three-game winning streak to face the Spartans who are on a two-game losing skid. Michigan State was overpowered by up-and-coming Iowa last Thursday and then lost a heartbreaker on the road in Madison. More important is that MSU lost the leader of their team in starting point guard Tum Tum Nairn who is prized by head coach Tom Izzo for pushing the pace on offense. Izzo said he didn't know when Nairn would be back but would not play against Nebraska. Michigan State ranks 39th in the nation in defensive adjusted efficiency which is a step up in class from what Nebraska has faced to this point this year with an opponent’s defensive efficiency ranking of 181st. This combined with the fact that Nairn is out should mean a different offensive philosophy for the Spartans the next couple games: “The guy does a lot for us,” Izzo said. “He’s one of those guys that the players appreciate and so that was a big loss for us. We think we could have ran them. Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Conference Championship Preview

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
March Madness has a lock on the Final Four terminology, but we’re down to the final four teams standing in the NFL Playoffs following a wild weekend of football.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll take a look at how the Final Four teams still standing this NFL season survived, and what their realistic chances of Super Bowl success are moving forward into the Conference Championship Games this coming weekend.

Denver was outgained by more than two full yards per PLAY against the Steelers.  It was not vintage Peyton Manning, to put it mildly: 37 pass attempts for 215 yards, with only two passes all afternoon gaining more than 15 yards.  If you were watching the game, you already know how many missed connections that Manning had with his receivers – no shortage of inaccurate passes and dropped balls.  With the exception of one explosive 34-yard run by CJ Anderson, Denver’s running game wasn’t much better.  Anderson and Ronnie Hillman’s other 30 carries combined for just 76 yards.

But the Broncos avoided mistakes, playing turnover free football; the first time as a starter all season in which Manning Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: East Carolina Pirates at UCF Knights

East Carolina at UCF -4 O/U 139
Recommendation: Under


A few weeks back I wrote up a free play on East Carolina-UCF under 139. Early bettors were able to cash on the under but the game unfortunately landed right on 139 thanks to 51 points the final 10 minutes of the game and a slew of free throws late due to fouls. Prior to that flurry of points, the game was a dead nuts under. At half, UCF led 28-25, and with five minutes to go it was 56-51. These are two under type squads (10-14 O/U combined) with the Knights playing zone and boasting one of the biggest frontcourts in the country and the Pirates also playing zone. Both teams are also mirrors images of one another when it comes to pace (NCAA average) and offensive efficiency (again, NCAA average). The Knights are probably a little better defensively that their numbers suggest. They played two throw-away type games against Stetson and Bethune-Cookman where they traded baskets and everyone got to boost their stats. They also struggled against the high-power offenses of Davidson, Detroit, and SMU. Outside of that, this is a team that has been pretty consistent about holding teams in the 60's. ECU is in Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Seton Hall Pirates at Villanova Wildcats

Seton Hall at Villanova
Recommendation: Over 66 1st half


Villanova's offense looked like a well oiled machine in Big East wins over Xavier and Creighton. The Wildcats hit a combined 51-of-64 from two and 19-of-43 from three. They can score from all over the court and have an endless array of offensive weapons. Seton Hall has been serviceable on the offensive end with 83 and 78 point efforts in wins over Marquette and DePaul. Both games also featured a fair amount of pace with 80 and 72 possessions respectively. What I don't buy is any of Seton Hall's defensive numbers as multiple metrics indicate the schedule has been extremely favorable in terms of its opponent's offensive potency. In fact, six of their foes are currently averaging less than a point per possession. The Pirates allowed 1.09 ppp in Big East play last season which means we can put little stock into their current output of 0.94 (32nd nationally). Tonight serves as a massive step up in class considering Villanova ranks sixth in offensive efficiency despite struggling from beyond the arc to start the season. You do have to be concerned about Villanova's ability on the defensive end which Read more
