Las Vegas Hotel struggles during the post-Hilton era

02.17.2012     11:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article from the Las Vegas Sun on the former Hilton Hotel and Casino – now named the LVH (Las Vegas Hotel and Casino). Things aren’t looking too good these days both literally and figuratively.  The name change has also caused issues with its searchability on Google.


"The termination of the Hilton License Agreement, coupled with the fact that the property did not have the financial resources to purchase replacement exterior signage or to initiate a new brand advertising campaign to attract leisure travelers, has had a dramatic negative impact on hotel occupancy,'' his report said. ''Dramatically lower occupancy levels have, in turn, had a negative impact on other revenue departments (i.e. gaming, food and beverage and retail).''

Johnson also reported that the 2,950-room hotel-casino on Paradise Road needs $700,000 for exterior signage to replace the Hilton signs, Read more

NBA Handicapping: Milwaukee Bucks lack passion during recent skid

02.17.2012     11:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Milwaukee at Orlando -7.5 O/U 192

Editorial on the recent slide for the Milwaukee Bucks. The team has lost six of their last eight – they covered only one pointspread (vs. Toronto) during that stretch.


And where is Scott Skiles in all of this? Fire, passion and competitiveness are the coach's strengths, and everyone is accountable. Skiles can do only so much with the talent that he is given, but no person on the planet can motivate grown men with guaranteed contracts. The responsibility runs both ways.

NCAA Basketball Betting Alert: Saint Mary's shorthanded for trip to Murray State

02.17.2012     11:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saint Mary's could be down two key players for Saturday's Bracket Buster contest at Murray State. Guard Stephen Holt (10.4 ppg) is out for two weeks with a slight MCL tear. Matthew Dellavedova (15.5 ppg) is doubtful with an ankle injury.


Saint Mary's coach Randy Bennett told CBSSports.com that Dellavedova, the team's top player, will be a game-time decision with an ankle injury, and as of now it looks "doubtful." Holt, one of the team's most complete players, is out for the next couple weeks after suffering a partially torn MCL.

Bracket Buster Betting Free Pick: Northern Iowa Panthers at VCU Rams

Northern Iowa at VCU -6 O/U 125
Recommendation: Under


Let’s tip off the Bracket Buster weekend with a totals play against the money move. Northern Iowa travels to the Siegel Center in Richmond, Virginia to take on VCU on ESPNU. The Rams are 11-1 at home, and note in their last eight home games, VCU has allowed the following scores in regulation: 43, 56, 49, 48, 60, 45, 55 and 49 points.

VCU (22-6) is in second place in the Colonial Athletic Association while Northern Iowa (17-11) is in seventh place in the stronger Missouri Valley Conference. Recall the Rams made a surprising run to the Final Four last season as an 11th-seed in the NCAA Tournament, and head coach Shaka Smart’s team is playing solid defense again this year. The Rams athletic guards have led them to the top spot in steals and turnover margin in the CAA. A letdown could be looming after the Rams 11-game winning streak was snapped Tuesday in a last-second loss to league-leader Read more

Canada moves to legalize single-event sports betting

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Canada is currently taken steps to legalize single-event sports betting.


"Single-event sports betting would provide Canadian gaming operations with a significant competitive advantage over U.S. competitors," Comartin said in a statement on Thursday. "Studies show this slight change to the Criminal Code would generate about $70 million in wagering in Windsor alone."

Northern Iowa at VCU -5.5 O/U 123.5

VCU tries to rebound after a last second loss to George Mason on Wednesday. The Rams play host to Northern Iowa in tonight’s Bracket Buster tip-off.


"It's definitely not easy, but if you don't put it behind you, it'll hold you up for the next game," VCU senior guard Bradford Burgess said. "We are playing so well right now. We do have room for improvement, as always, but we want to get back to winning."

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Illinois' Bruce Weber on the way out

02.17.2012     07:19 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We had Illinois Wednesday night in its 67-62 home loss to Purdue. The Illini fit a number of late season profitable profiles I use, and they we playing a Purdue team with redemption after losing to the Boilermakers 75-60 on December 31. Yet the information below with the surrounding situations is an example of the problems that can persist within a team environment, and how a lack of cohesion, chemistry and unsettled coaching can lead to less than desired results.

Now on a 0-4 SU/ATS losing skid and losers of seven of their last eight games, it’s clear that the Illini (16-10, 5-8 Big Ten) are a “towel tosser” team with a coach that looks like he’s on his way out. Bruce Weber has passed on other job offers in recent years including the Oklahoma opening last March; reportedly $17 Million.  In his 9th season at Illinois and six years removed from a Big Ten title and National Championship game appearance, the Bruce Weber era at Illinois appears to be over. Despite a genuine respect by his peers and support of his staff, Weber is now in a losing situation. The fans started to turn on him in the past few years and the pressure has mounted with less Read more

Bracket Buster Betting Preview: Valpo travels to Loyola Marymount

Valparaiso at Loyola Marymount -6 O/U 136.5

Bracket Buster action tips off tonight with Valpo traveling west to face Loyola Marymount. This is one of many potentially tricky late season non-conference game handicaps. For first place Valpo (12-4), the focus is clearly on winning the Horizon League regular season title which has a ton of importance with the top two teams receiving a bye and the top remaining seed hosting the title game. LMU may not be completely focused either which has been an issue for this team at times. The Lions are off a monumental road win at St. Mary's and have to very winnable league games left with San Diego and Santa Clara at home. They've already clinched a bye to the quarterfinals of the WCC Tournament.

NBA Handicapping: Dallas Mavericks getting it done on defense

Dallas at Philadelphia O/U 181

Pretty impressive that earlier this season the Dallas Mavericks set a franchise record for holding 15 straight opponents under 100 points. And they are currently in the midst of another nine-game stretch of sub-100 basketball. Some of the success can be attributed to Brendan Haywood who has filled in nicely on the defensive end of the floor for Tyson Chandler.

UPDATE

Suspended Alabama forward Tony Mitchell announced on Twitter that he will be back. When that occurs is the question. Head coach Anthony Grant has remained quite regarding the status of Mitchell and JaMychal Green. Grant reinstated Trevor Releford and Andrew Steele prior to Tuesday's game against Florida – the Gators won 61-52. Alabama plays host to Tennessee on Saturday.


On Mitchell's Twitter page, the following messages were posted: "To all my bama fans tmitch is goin nowhere #bamatilidie" and later, "I will be back."

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls

02.16.2012     11:38 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston +8 at Chicago O/U 180.5
Recommendation: Boston


Make no mistake, right now, Chicago is not the type of team that should be laying eight points against another Eastern Conference contender without Derrick Rose in the lineup.  Chicago has been on the lucky side of the schedule equation with Rose sitting out with back spasms.  Rose has missed eight previous games, and Chicago is 6-2 SU, 4-4 ATS in those contests.  But when the Bulls have been asked to step up in class, it’s a different story.  Against other winning teams, without Rose in the lineup, the Bulls are 0-2 SU, 0-2 ATS including a four-point loss as road favorites at Boston this past weekend.

Chicago struggled defensively in that loss to the Celtics, allowing 49% shooting from the floor.  They struggled defensively again versus lowly Sacramento on Tuesday, allowing the Kings to score a season high 115 points on 47% shooting.  With a losing ATS mark at home this season, this price Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Oregon Ducks at California Golden Bears

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oregon +11 at California 139.5
Recommendation: Oregon


I think we can take advantage of all of the damage Cal handed out to opponents on its home court during the non-conference and step in and play a surging Oregon squad as a double-digit underdog. A closer look at Cal's home results show that when the competition is halfway decent, the wins haven’t come by big margins. The Golden Bears beat Colorado by 7, Stanford by 10 and lost to Arizona by 4. Their most impressive win was more spot-oriented as they took down UCLA 85-69 with the Bruins off a one-point loss two nights prior. Oregon has actually passed Cal for the league's best offense (109.5 points per possession) and the Ducks have for the most part played solid defense this season. This is an important game for both sides, especially Oregon who theoretically is still in the PAC-12 title hunt or perhaps an at-large berth. I expect a big effort from the road side which gives us value with Read more

Some bettors apparently feel that Jeremy Lin will win the MVP award

02.16.2012     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not satisfied with New York's 9-1 against the spread run, bettors are reportedly fighting to get to the window to bet Jeremy Lin to win MVP honors. We preface that this onslaught of betting action came at sportsbook.com, so it may very well be a marketing ploy. As well as Lin has played, he's been a part of just half of his team's games. And his incredible play is eventually going to cool off – as are the Knicks.


Bettors placed $3,000 on Lin at 100 to 1, $5,000 at 75 to 1, and $12,000 when the odds moved to 50 to 1.

NCAA Basketball Betting Trends: Another late season slide for Stanford

Oregon State at Stanford -4 O/U 143

Article on Stanford's notorious late season slides under head coach Johnny Dawkins. The Cardinal enter tonight's contest against Oregon State having lost five of their last seven (2-5 ATS). Their only wins and covers came against bottom feeders USC and Arizona State. Stanford opened a 5-point favorite but was bet down to -4.


Stanford's recent slump continues a disquieting trend of late-season tail-offs or outright collapses during Dawkins' four years on the Farm. In his first season, the team won its first 10 games and was 13-3 before losing 11 of its last 18. The 2009-10 team was 10-9 before losing nine of its last 13. Last year the Cardinal were 10-5, then lost 11 of 16.

NBA Handicapping: Boston Celtics try to find offensive niche

02.16.2012     06:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on Boston's struggles to create an offensive identity. Head coach Doc Rivers mentioned he'd like his team to play at a slightly faster pace heading into last night's game against Detroit. That resulted in 44% shooting, Rajon Rondo taking 27 shots (35 points) and 88 points. Kevin Garnett (hip) is expected back in the lineup for tonight's game at Chicago.


"Offensively I didn't really like the way we played the whole night, really," Rivers said. "Wasn't a lot of movement. I like Rondo being aggressive, but on the other hand we didn't get a lot of ball movement. This wasn't lost on offense. Defensively you give up 98 points to a team that's struggling right now scoring."

"It's difficult. When you have it going yourself, my teammates kept telling me stay aggressive," he said. "But at the same time I was just trying to get other guys involved. You know, when they're not missing, they have to come back and tell me to still attack and stay aggressive."

College Basketball Betting Tips: Making money on losing teams

Submitted by

After cashing our 20* Big Drive ACC Game of the Year winner on Boston College Sunday, I decided to do some additional research on losing teams and a follow up from our blog on February 13. I searched through the top college basketball money earners and ATS winners and here are the losing teams that are producing the most profit. Just another example of how losing teams can actually make money for bettors willing to leave their comfort zone and bet on “bad” teams; especially as underdog. Note that of the top-60 college basketball teams that have produced the most profit, only seven have losing records. I’ve also included those seven teams ATS record at home and their ATS record as underdog.

Wisconsin at Michigan State -6 O/U 114.5

Looking to keep pace with first place Ohio State, Wisconsin travels to East Lansing to face Michigan State. The Spartans won in overtime in Madison, 63-60, back on January 3. Wisconsin though appears to be a different team, having won seven of eight since starting the Big Ten season 1-3. Meanwhile the Spartans are 9-3 with two of their three league losses by a single point. At home vs. the Big Ten, MSU is 6-0 with wins by 15, 34, 25, 16, 10 and 20. And according to Tom Izzo, this year's group may be the best defense he's ever coached.


"They're playing a lot better and a huge part of that is Taylor playing a lot better," Spartans forward Draymond Green said. "He's a lot more like what everyone expected him to be. Read more
