College Football Betting Preview: UNLV Rebels at Ohio State Buckeyes

UNLV at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener: Ohio State -39.5 O/U 65
CRIS Current: Ohio State -40 O/U 64.5
Recommendation: Over

Eliminate for a second Ohio State's dismal offensive showing vs. Oklahoma in which the Buckeyes posted only 350 total yards and 16 points. Instead, turn your attention to Week 1 in which the Buckeyes rolled up nearly 600 yards and 49 points against Indiana. And last week as well as OSU hung 586 yards on only 69 plays in its win over Army. Bettors should feel confident moving forward that Ohio State's offense is only going to get better as first-year OC Kevin Wilson and Urban Meyer adjust to one another. In the meantime, this is still a top-tier offense, especially when facing lower-tier competition which is exactly what they'll see this weekend in UNLV.

The Rebels were not an especially strong defensive team a season ago even though the schedule came up very light in terms of opposing offenses. UNLV faced only three teams in the top 50 in total offense and in those three games it allowed 50 ppg. This season's Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at where the public money is going for tonight's two Monday Night Football games.

New Orleans at Minnesota
The Vikings opened -3.5 back in April with the line bouncing between -3.5 and -3. Most offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks are currently showing -3 with -115 or -120 juice on the home favorite. Now real movement on the total with the original opener of 47.5 still the prevailing number. According to Sports Options, 57% of the public money has come on New Orleans while 53% is on the over.

LA Chargers at Denver
Here's a game that has seen significant line movement since the opener. Denver originally opened -5 at CRIS and -3.5 at Pinnacle. CRIS and 5Dimes have moved to -2.5 with juice while most shops are -3 even money. The total has seen heavy pressure of the under with 43 taken out earlier today and 42.5/42 now showing. Public money is showing 60% on the Chargers and split 50/50 on the total.

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
So there's a NFL regular season game going on tonight with Kansas City taking on New England in Foxboro. Somewhat divided opinions with offshore sportsbooks leaning towards the Chiefs and Las Vegas sportsbooks all but saying we don't want any more action on the Patriots.

NFL Handicapper Betting Preview: New York Jets at Buffalo Bills

NY Jets at Buffalo
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Buffalo -6 O/U 43
CRIS Current: Buffalo -7.5 O/U 40
Recommendation: New York

The very first question I ask myself when I’m looking at an NFL pointspread is this: Does the favorite deserve to be favored in this price range? And my answer to that question when it comes to the Buffalo Bills in Week 1 is a resounding "no way!"

For this pointspread to be categorized as reasonable, two things must be true. First, the Jets legitimately must be one of the very worst teams in NFL history. And secondly, the Bills have to be capable of beating an opponent by more than a touchdown. I’m not convinced that either is the case.

Make no mistake about it – the Jets are currently being priced like the worst team in NFL history. Last year’s 1-15 Browns were power rated by the markets higher than this year’s Jets squad. The 0-16 Lions from 2008 – the only winless team in the modern era – were -3.5 point road favorites at Atlanta on opening day. I’ve lived in Vegas Read more

Gambling Update: Sportsbooks got result they needed as Mayweather defeats McGregor

08.28.2017     09:35 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

In what was surprisingly uneventful, Floyd Mayweather defeated Conor McGregor with a 10th-Round TKO this past weekend. The outcome was a huge relief for sportsbooks across the world. News also came out that Floyd tried to bet $400K on himself as Las Vegas' M Casino but was denied.


"I think that we bet 100 on 9½," Mayweather told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio after the fight. "I gave my guy six figures to go bet. I have to make sure he bet because earlier today I went to the sports book to bet and they wouldn't let me bet."







If McGregor wins, Las Vegas oddsmakers claim world may end

If McGregor wins, Las Vegas oddsmakers claim world may end

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
DEFCON 2 is defined as "next step to nuclear war; Armed Forces ready to deploy and engage is less than 6 hours." That is how Las Vegas oddsmakers are reacting to the betting patterns of this weekend's "much anticipated" Mayweather-McGregor "fight."


"All I know is we're less than a week away from making a lot of money or getting [clobbered]," William Hill director of trading Nick Bogdanovich told ESPN over the weekend.

"This is like hanging -3 on the Super Bowl and seeing the line move to -8," Jay Rood, vice president of MGM Resorts race and sports, told ESPN, revealing his company's current ticket ratio of 25-1. Last month it was 50-1. "This could be the worst loss in the history of MGM Resorts."

NFL Gambling Alert: Sportsbooks scramble following Elliott suspension

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With running back Ezekiel Elliott suspended for six games, sportsbooks have taken the Cowboys-Giants Week 1 matchup off of the board. Dallas opened -6.5 back in April but money slowly came in on New York as it sat -5.5/-5 for much of the summer.

Ridiculously large Mayweather bet turns out to be marketing ploy

08.14.2017     06:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mayweather v. McGregor. The Maloof Bros. An $880K bet. And a potion that is supposed to cure hangovers. Seriously, WTF?


 “We were flooded with McGregor money so I was more than happy to take the bet,” South Point sports book director Chris Andrews said Saturday. “We still need Mayweather.”

“We went and sat down with (South Point owner) Michael Gaughan and made the bet. But we came back and thought to ourselves, ‘The money is nice but it can do so much good for so many other people so why don’t we take all the winnings and donate it to charity,’ ” he said. “If he wins, we’ll donate the $160,000 to charities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, where our sister Adrienne lives.

“It will be a nice gesture for the community and get everybody rooting for Floyd, who’s a hometown kid.”

NFL Preseason Gambling: Arizona Cardinals change play callers for second straight game

08.11.2017     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Arizona Cardinals will hand over play calling duties to quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich for Sunday's game vs. Oakland. In their 20-18 Hall of Fame game loss to the Cowboys, the Cardinals scored 15 points in the first quarter and finished with 327 total yards. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin called plays in that contest. Arizona has taken a slew of money this week; +1 to now -3 at both offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks.


“Byron doesn’t have a ton of, or much, history calling plays but just his knowledge of the offense, his knowledge of being the guy that is hearing it through his headset is going to serve him and give him some experience.”

Not everyone is lining up to bet Conor McGregor

08.08.2017     08:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You knew at some point there was going to be Floyd Mayweather money, especially after all of the talk about the "public" reportedly betting the shit out of Conor McGregor. Note that one Las Vegas sportsbook director hints that if you like Floyd, you may be able to get around -500 closer to fight night.

 

“That really balances things out,” Westgate sports book director Jay Kornegay said. “The Mayweather money showed up a little earlier than we thought it would. I think it got all the way down to (minus-)625 when they started laying Mayweather money. I thought it was going to drop lower and it still might.”
