NBA Betting News: Miami Heat vow to fix leaky defense

02.15.2017     09:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Throughout Miami's incredible 13-game winning streak, the offense averaged a well-oiled 109.3 ppg. The Heat though enter tonight having dropped two straight and while the offense continued to roll (109 and 107 points), the team's defense regressed. Philadelphia and Orlando hung 117 and 116 respectively and the challenge stiffens tonight as the Heat head to Houston.

 

“The last three games we’ve played against opponents who like to run,” guard Goran Dragic said. “…First of all, we need to get back on defense. We allowed too many points in transition. We just need to communicate. We’ve already proven that we can play good defense.”

College Basketball Handicapping: Indiana's Crean calls out players

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's a fine line between constructive criticism and throwing your team under the bus. Indiana's Tom Crean appears to have accomplished a little of both following Sunday's home loss to Michigan. The Hoosiers have been hurt by injuries but it doesn't excuse the offense from failing to top 65 points in five of its last six games. IU heads to Minnesota tonight. They are currently +5 underdogs.


“I’ve never coach a team with this lack of maturity when it comes to being able to respond and rebound from when things aren’t going well for them personally. That includes the teams that have won six or eight games.” – Tom Crean, Indiana head coach

“Immaturity in the backcourt. We don’t play both ends of the floor with the same purpose that we have to play [with] when shots are not going down. That has to change” – Tom Crean, Indiana head coach

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues at Detroit Red Wings

St. Louis -110 at Detroit O/U 5.5
Recommendation: St. Louis


Two former Central Division rivals clash in the Motor City tonight as the Detroit Red Wings host the St. Louis Blues. Detroit has fallen on hard times as of late, dropping nine of its last 11 contests. They currently sit dead last in the Eastern Conference with 54 points and could be skating without two of their best forwards as veteran Thomas Vanek is out indefinitely with a lower body injury and Gustav Nyquist could miss a few games after a high-sticking incident in Sunday's 6-3 loss at Minnesota. The 27-year-old winger hit Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon in the face, drawing blood with the blade of his stick and served a 4-minute double minor. Nyquist will have an in-person hearing in New York soon, which suggests he could miss as many as six games. As for Vanek, the club's leading goal-scorer with 14 and second in points with 36, this further handcuffs a Detroit offense that has scored three goals or fewer in 10 of its last 11 games. The Blues have started to get back on the right track under new coach Mike Yeo with wins in five of their last six. Wingers Patrik Berglund and Vladimir Read more

Super Bowl LI Prop Bet Pick: Will Either Team Convert a Fourth Down?

Will Either Team Convert a Fourth Down?  Yes (-200)
Somebody is going to be behind in the fourth quarter of this game. Somebody is going to be facing a fourth an inches in the red zone. Both teams went for it on fourth downs more than the average squad (especially the average playoff teams, who weren’t trailing in the fourth quarter all season), and both team were in the Top 10 in conversion percentage.  The key here is that I trust BOTH of these offenses to have a well above average chance to convert on any fourth down conversion tries.

Super Bowl LI Prop Bet Pick: Number of Atlanta Falcons With A Rush Attempt

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Number of Atlanta Falcons With A Rush Attempt: Over 3.5 -135
The Atlanta Falcons had four different players with a rush attempt in each of their two playoff games and I think we will see that trend continue on Sunday. Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and Matt Ryan (who is athletic enough to make plays and scored a rushing TD against Green Bay) are likely candidates to carry the ball at least once and I think there will be a fourth player to get an attempt. Receivers Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel are absolutely candidates to carry the ball on an end-around or double reverse type play. And trick plays certainly can't be ruled out of the equation especially with a creative offensive mind like Kyle Shanahan at the controls of the offense. Atlanta has a recent track record of 4+ players carrying the ball and it’s worth riding again on Sunday.

Super Bowl LI Gambling: Prop bets give bettors a great chance for big profits

The stage is set for Sunday's Super Bowl LI in Houston. The Las Vegas and offshore consensus opening line was New England -3 and it's held put save for a few shops adjusting on juice.  The total opened 57 and has since been bet up to 58.5 offshore and 59 in Vegas. This is the sixth Super Bowl that will feature the league's top scoring offense (Atlanta) against the league's top scoring defense NFL (New England).The top ranked scoring defense won four of the five previous games; the most recent in 2013 when Seattle demolished Denver 43-8.

As mentioned in previous columns, New England's gaudy numbers were assisted in a big way by the league's weakest strength of schedule. The Patriots also faced a slew of lower-tiered quarterbacks. But against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were projected to be their toughest offensive opponent to-date, New England allowed a modest 368 yards and 17 points en route to a dominating 36-17 win in the AFC Championship. Atlanta's offensive output (420 ypg, 6.7 ypp) was in no way fluky. The Falcons faced one of the toughest defensive slates in the league and routinely were able to move the ball seemingly at will. The big question is can Read more

Betting markets remain quiet with Super Bowl LI less than a week away

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We're less than a week away from Super Bowl LI and thus far, the betting markets have been pretty quiet. Despite the "high profile vs. low profile" matchup, sportsbooks have kept the game lined at a field goal. Offshore, there are a number of books that are "leaning" towards the Falcons. Pinnacle and Matchbook have New England -3 (+108). CRIS, Greek, and Grande -3 (-105). But what really stands nearly every Las Vegas sportsbook is sitting at a flat -3 (-110). Golden Nugget has New England -3 (-115) and Treasure Island is asking bettors to lay an absurd 40 cents worth of juice on a Falcons +3.5 bet. There will no doubt be some movement and opinion as we near Sunday. Those is the Vegas area should be able to get Atlanta +3.5 at a reason price.

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

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

Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 51 Prop Bets

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
