Even the prospects of increased revenue can't soften NFL's archaic stance toward sports betting

04.04.2018     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article from ESPN Chalk on the discussion of the Oakland Raiders' move to Las Vegas and sports betting. The findings were just as we suspected: The NFL remains "worried" despite multiple well-researched reports indicating there is absolutely no reason to be concerned about the "integrity of the game."


Last week at an NFL owners meeting in Orlando, Florida, the league presented an analysis on the potential impact of sports betting legalization. The findings reportedly came from a study that had been in the works for more than a year and kept under wraps. One source familiar with the league's analysis said it was focused on revenue opportunities, integrity issues and fan reaction, if sports betting becomes legal outside of Nevada.

The NFL said it was unaware of the report that UNLV had produced for the Raiders and declined to comment for this story.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Coyotes at Calgary Flames

Arizona +110 at Calgary O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Arizona

The Calgary Flames snapped an ugly 7-game losing streak by beating Edmonton 3-2 in their last game but they were very lucky to do so. The Flames got out to a early lead because of terrible goaltending by Edmonton netminder Cam Talbot and had to hang on for dear life to win as the Oilers dominated the last two periods especially the third period but just couldn't find a way to tie up that game. Betting against Calgary repeatedly since they were officially eliminated from playoff contention has been a staple of my recent handicapping in the NHL and I will try my chances once again betting against a demoralized and injury riddled Calgary team tonight minus TJ Brodie and Travis Hamonic two key starting defensemen on their blue line as well as forwards Sean Monahan, Matthew Tkachuk and Kris Versteeg. Flames goalie Mike Smith finally played one of his better games in net for Calgary in that win over Edmonton on Saturday night but he's been lacking consistency and the ability to follow up a good start with another one all season long. On the flip side, the full season record Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A few hours from tip-off and there doesn't appear to be a sharp/square divide on tonight's NCAA National Championship. After opening -6.5, a handful of Las Vegas sportsbooks started to move to -7. Earlier today, every major offshore sportsbook followed suit. As of 11:30 am PT, virtually every shop on the planet is dealing -7. There is some opinion on the total: offshore sitting at 144.5 while Las Vegas is at 145.5 as well as 146un-115 at CG Technology. According to Sports Options, 72% of the betting public is on the over while 60% is on the favorite, Villanova.

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Of course there was a moneyline bet on UMBC over Virginia

03.21.2018     08:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The odds on UMBC beating Virginia weren't good. But the odds of a few UMBC alums in Las Vegas playing the Retrievers on the moneyline were "chalky" to say the least. Here is their story.


"We, of course, thought we were throwing our money down the drain," said Barger, 42, who works for an airline company in Washington, D.C. "We expected to be down pretty quickly, but we hung in there, and they won by 20. It was surreal."

After the win, Barger went to cash the ticket to the tune of a $16,000 profit. In typical Vegas style, Barger said each of the eight men took $200 and put that down on a single game of roulette. Their number hit for another $1,900, which was split again.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Jersey Devils at San Jose Sharks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New Jersey +140 at San Jose O/U 5.5
Recommendation: New Jersey

The New Jersey Devils have been playing some solid hockey on their current road trip. They’ve won three of their first four games on this current road swing and they beat three probable playoff teams in the process notching road victories at Nashville, Vegas and Los Angeles. They were a bit worn down in a 4-2 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night playing the second night of back-to-back games but the Devils have been getting better contributions offensively from players other than Taylor Hall during their recent run while the goaltending for them on most nights from Keith Kinkaid has been really good. San Jose is commanding a significant price tag here laying -160 at home and they have won 4 games in a row entering this contest but the Sharks have done that despite some key injuries on their team. Joe Thornton is out indefinitely with a knee injury, Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi are both banged up and not a sure thing to play tonight and one of their most important defensemen Marc-Edouard Vlasic departed San Jose’s last game with a chest injury and is Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks at Vegas Golden Knights

Chicago at Vegas O/U 6
Recommendation: Vegas -1.5 puck line

Vegas is off a very rare home loss (19-6 YTD) on Sunday to the Philadelphia Flyers by a score of 4-1 but the Golden Knights have been a resilient group all season and have consistently responded well after a poor performance as evidenced by their 14-5 record off of a single loss. The Golden Knights outshot the Flyers despite coming up short on the scoreboard but the team felt they were not creating enough quality scoring chances nor were they making life uncomfortable enough for the opposing goaltender something the team has vowed to try and correct for this home game tonight against the Blackhawks. Chicago is in freefall mode currently a shell of the team they have been for most of the last decade in which they have been a perennial Stanley Cup contender. The Blackhawks have lost six straight games entering this contest tonight and now face the arduous task of playing their third road game in four nights against a much better and highly motivated hockey team. Chicago has been outscored by Minnesota and Arizona in the first two games of this road swing by a combined score of Read more
