NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Indiana Pacers at Brooklyn Nets

Indiana -4 at Brooklyn O/U 212.5
Recommendation: Indiana

Very quietly, waaaaaaay underneath the radar, the Indiana Pacers are playing their best basketball of the season heading into the All-Star break. Indiana has won its last two, including an impressive road win at Boston. They’ve won seven of their last ten overall; 13-6 in their last 19 contests; a stretch that includes SU road wins at Utah, San Antonio and Phoenix as well as that win against the Celtics.

There were some initial concerns about the chemistry between players and management after Indiana stood pat at the trading deadline, unable to give the team a boost in their push towards the playoffs. Quotes like this one from Thaddeus Young make it VERY clear that any chemistry concerns are vastly overblown:

"We were just excited they decided to keep this thing together and let us keep getting better. Right after the game (vs. the Knicks on Sunday), (GM Chad Buchanon) texted us and said, 'Great win. But it's not over. We still have one game before the All-Star break,' and we all responded right then and there. It's like I said, this is one of 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

Super Bowl LII Betting: Las Vegas sportsbook takes massive wager on Philadelphia Eagles

01.26.2018     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's the first of many Super Bowl "big bet" stories. Las Vegas' MGM Mirage reportedly took a "multi-million dollar" wager on the Philadelphia Eagles. Perhaps most impressive is the sportsbook actually moved its line. Early this week, the Eagles were +5.5. The Mirage is currently showing +4.5-120.


 "Obviously, we're pretty heavy Eagles now," MGM vice president of race and sport Jay Rood told ESPN. Rood said early betting previously had been pretty split for next Sunday's game between the Eagles and the Patriots.

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.

NFL Handicapper Free Wild Card Betting Pick: Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs

Tennessee at Kansas City
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Kansas City -7.5 O/U 45
CRIS Current: Kansas City -9 O/U 44.5
Recommendation: Tennessee

There’s been a flu bug ripping through the Chiefs complex this week, forcing the likes of Justin Houston and Travis Kelce into submission. Head coach Andy Reid is clearly concerned:

“We’ve tried to quarantine the guys the best we could, get them out of the building. Quarantine’s not the right word, but we’ve tried to get them away from the team, tried to isolate them the best we can. Things like this happen and we just kind of hope for the best there.”

It’s not like the Chiefs or Reid have a particularly good postseason track record or a good track record as chalk. KC is just 1-3 SU in the playoffs under Andy Reid, the lone win coming in 2015 against a Texans team that didn’t have anything resembling an NFL quarterback. In fact, since the start of the 2015 campaign, Reid’s Chiefs have been favored by -6.5 or more twelve times. They have more Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Jets at New England Patriots

NY Jets at New England
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: New England -16 o/U 46
CRIS Current: New England -14.5 O/U 43.5
Recommendation: New England

Incredibly, the New England Patriots are STILL an undervalued commodity at this stage of the campaign and at this stage of the franchise trajectory. Sure, the Pats won their fifth Super Bowl title in the Brady/Belichick era last February. Sure, the Pats are on pace to snare another #1 seed in the AFC with a victory here — this is most assuredly NOT a meaningless game for the home favorite. If they lose, they probably head to Pittsburgh for the AFC Championship Game, and I’m SURE that’s motivation enough. And yet the markets have been consistently behind New England’s capabilities all season, just like they’ve been in every recent season.

The Patriots went 13-3 ATS last year and covered the spread in all three of their playoff wins as well. This year, following their 4-2 SU, 3-3 ATS start, guess what — the Pats have been the best pointspread team in football. They’re 8-1 Read more

Arizona Bowl Betting Preview: Utah State Aggies vs. New Mexico State Aggies

Arizona Bowl - Tucson
Utah State vs. New Mexico State
Friday, December 29, 2:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Utah State -3 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Utah State -4 O/U 62
Recommendation: Over

The Arizona Bowl features a pair of Aggies with Utah State in the postseason for the sixth time in seven years taking on New Mexico State who is making its first bowl appearance since the Eisenhower Administration. NMSU head coach Doug Martin led one of the more underrated turnaround in college football this season after combining for eight victories his first three years. A big part of the turnaround was the play of senior quarterback Tyler Rodgers. The Aggies rank fourth nationally in passing yards and the Arizona native Rogers ranked second in both completions (29) and passing yards (347.7) per game. The New Mexico State defense also improved by over a touchdown per game though the unit certainly benefited from a watered down Sun Belt as five teams failed to average over 21 ppg. Eliminate games against offensively inept UTEP, South Alabama, and Idaho, and Read more

College Football Handicapping: Herm Edwards off to a hot start at Arizona State

12.19.2017     06:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Like most bettors, we're still trying to wrap our heads around Arizona State's decision to hire Herm Edwards. Long term, this has close to no chance of working out. But it's the Sun Devils' upcoming Sun Bowl Bowl matchup vs. NC State that has our attention. For whatever reason, the athletics director encouraged Edwards to keep both coordinators, which Edwards did. The only problem is they didn't stick around. Defensive coordinator Phil Bennett left for what is being called "health reasons" while offensive coordinator Billy Napier took the head job at UL-Lafayette. Shortly after, Edwards promoted wide receivers coach Rob Likens to offensive coordinator ASU's fourth OC in four years. And no one really knows who will be in charge of the defense. The only thing that can make this situation even more entertaining is if Read more
