Mayweather denies Clippers bet but wanted to get down on Celtics-Hawks second half

05.02.2012     06:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Never a dull moment in the life of Floyd Mayweather. This time, rumors are circulating that Mayweather had $1.8 million spread out over seven Las Vegas sportsbooks on the Clippers +6 – the game they trailed by as much as 27 and won outright. But in Tuesday's press conference for his weekend bout with Miguel Cotto, the often times braggadocios Mayweather said the big bet claims were false. Later in the interview however, and true to form, he did tell reporters he wanted to bet the second half of the Celtics-Hawks game. Mayweather is a -700 favorite over Cotto for Saturday. 

"I've won a lot of money on games, I've lost a good piece of money on games," Mayweather told's David Mayo in March. "But at the end of the day, some of the games that they're talking about are rumors they put out there, that are false. In sports, you win and you lose, but the main thing is you have to win more than you

Deadspin tries to uncover truth behind bettor/columnist Sarah Phillips

05.01.2012     02:37 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We don't even know where to begin with this one but kudos to Deadspin for trying to tackle it. Some of you have probably heard of Sarah Phillips, a young 20-something female hardcore sports bettor (because there are a ton of them out there these days) who went from posting forum member, to featured columnist, to snagging a gig with ESPN's Page 2 within the span of about a year. If you bet on a daily basis and read her stuff, it is obviously scripted in some manner. She'll go from sounding like a college chick who likes flavored vodka to an Andrew Lange-Brent Crow Sportsmemo Podcast conversation about a mid-week Sun Belt college basketball total – no one is THAT talented. Anyway, Phillips' online presence started to draw the attention of some folks and well, we'll let you soak in the rest...

A few days later, Phillips asked Matt for his advice on a Cardinals-Brewers game. The over/under for the game was 7.5 runs. Matt told her to take the

Bettor claims to have hit two live wagering moneyline bets on the Clippers

05.01.2012     01:40 PM     Printer Friendly
We'll let you guys decided whether or not this is real. We mentioned in Monday's blog that Pinnacle (which everyone copies when it comes to live odds) didn't even bother posting a moneyline when the Clippers-Grizzlies game got out of hand in the third quarter. Here is a bettor who claims to have gotten not one but two live bets down at +55555. Note that he got in one bet, the Clippers hit a three, and he proceeded to place another bet at the exact same price (huh?). Even if this isn't a hoax, good luck getting that payout from your agent dude!

Oddsmaker shares his thoughts on College Football O/U wins

05.01.2012     01:15 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Caesars sportsbook director Todd Fuhrman explains the science behind putting out a College Football Regular Season Over/Under Wins number.

Every bookmaker handle’s this process differently but for my purposes I try to rate each game 0 to 10 with a 10 meaning a virtual lock and 0 implying it will take a Stanford over USC type upset to grab the win.  At the end of the process, I’ll add up my total and attach appropriate juice based on intangibles, public perception, and overall gut feel.

UFC's Dana White gung-ho about sportsbooks offering betting lines

05.01.2012     11:20 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
UFC President Dana White has no problem with sportsbooks offering betting lines on his sport – in fact, he welcomes it and often posts the lines for TUF Live fights on his Twitter page. A few in the media (particularly Las Vegas Sun columnist J. Patrick Coolican) called him on it, saying that is discredits a sports still striving for legitimacy. White of course was having none of it and said that by sportsbooks offering wagering opportunities on fights, it only adds to its legitimacy.

"One of the things I love – which I think is bad ass – MGM, Mirage, The Venetian, the Las Vegas Hotel, Palms and a lot of other casino are doing this thing where they're having 'The Ultimate Fighter' inside the sportsbooks," White said. "So you go in, and you watch the reality (show), and then you go up and make your bet before the fight starts. They're all doing

MLB Betting Preview: New York Mets at Houston Astros

05.01.2012     10:54 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
NY Mets (Niese) -130 at Houston (Happ) O/U 8
Recommendation: New York

Houston took Game 1 of this series last night, turning five hits and two walks into four runs thanks to some solid clutch hitting. Don’t expect an Astros lineup that has produced three runs or less in half of their ten home games so far this season to have much success tonight against under-rated Mets hurler Jonathan Niese.  The Astros are just 1-4 against lefties in five tries in 2012, hitting just .227 as a team against southpaws. 

Niese has thrown four consecutive quality starts to open up the new campaign.  He dominated the Astros on his last visit to Houston, throwing seven innings of one run ball.  It was the exact same story in his previous start here at Minute Maid Park: seven innings of one run ball.  The Mets were huge profit makers on the highway last year, earning an MLB best 17.6 units of profit for their 81 road games.  And when we look at the profitability Read more

MLB Gambling Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks at Washington Nationals

05.01.2012     10:49 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Arizona (Cahill) +135 at Washington (Zimmermann) O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Arizona

The Washington Nationals (14-8) return home from a six-game road trip losers of four straight. The Nats still hold a slim lead in the NL East, but laying this price with a struggling offense can be risky. The Nationals scoring struggles are evident with 0, 3, 2, and 1 runs their last four games while hitting just .180. Over their last 11 games, the Nationals have averaged just 2.63 runs per game.

Don’t expect much offense from the Nationals against Arizona’s Trevor Cahill. Following two seasons of success pitching for Oakland, the big right-hander is pitching well with a .221 BAA that includes a pair of solid performances on the road. Cahill shut down both San Diego and Colorado in two road starts allowing just two runs and six hits in 13 innings. He has a solid ground ball profile and throwing at pitcher-friendly Nationals Park against a struggling lineup should serve him well again. Read more

Bookie finds happiness flying under the radar in the U.S.

05.01.2012     08:06 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
An anonymous bookie talks about how he's found a comfort zone living in America and doing business the old school way.

Life is too short. So I’m onshore and offline. Any trouble I’m going to get from the Law is going to be local. If caught, I’ll spend some time doing graffiti removal or cleaning up a park. I’ll sleep in my own bed.

I don’t need 16 hours a day in front of a computer screen trying to move my numbers faster than internet wiseguys can pick me off. I don’t need to try to figure out Costa Rica’s ever changing tax code. (When I left, sports books were charged, among other things, $1000 per computer monitor on the premises, per year.) I don’t need to court the DOJ’s wrath.

Poker legend Amarillo Slim dies at 83

Poker legend Thomas "Amarillo Slim" Preston passed away at the age of 83 on Sunday. He won the World Series of Poker main event in 1972 and was also noted for having played against Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Pablo Escobar, and Larry Flynt.

“Slim used his name and face to promote poker in a way it had never been done before, and without Amarillo Slim, the poker world would likely not exist in the way we know it today,” Poker Player News said in its obituary.

NBA Handicapping: Karl calls out Lakers for playing illegal defense

05.01.2012     07:23 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Denver at LA Lakers -5 O/U 200.5

After being held to 36% shooting and 88 points, Denver head coach George Karl was quick to note that the Lakers played plenty illegal defense in Game 1's blowout loss. Perhaps some frustration after his team had 15 of their shots blocked, including 10 courtesy of Andrew Bynum.

"He was playing nice illegal defense," Karl told reporters, including the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman. "He was zoned up good. I think we got one illegal defense [call] — I saw about 30."

MLB Handicapping: Pittsburgh's Morton shows improvement vs. lefties

05.01.2012     07:14 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Pittsburgh (Morton) at St. Louis (Wainwright) -180 O/U 7

The book on Pittsburgh's Charlie Morton has always been that he can't get lefties out. Last season, they hit .364 BA/.806 OPS against the righty. The year before that; .329 BA/.840 OPS. This year, though the sample is small (48 batters faced), Morton has dramatically improved his numbers (.227 BA/.582 OPS). According to this article, Morton made some pitch selection adjustments that have helped. Also note Morton's solid groundball-to-fly ball ratio (39-10). Expect tonight's opponent St. Louis to have at least five lefties in the lineup.

"He's starting to do all of it a little better," Hurdle said. "Even though it's a small sample size, we're looking for improvement. He's looking for improvement. He's gotten some."

"To me, it's kind of like

Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves

05.01.2012     06:48 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Philadelphia (Hamels) at Atlanta (Beachy) -125 O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Under

Last season, Atlanta's offense struggled mightedly against left-handed pitching and those numbers are starting to show up again (.238 vs. LH starters) this season despite the fact that they have yet to face a premium southpaw arm. And when it comes to "premium" in the National League names like Clayton Kershaw, Cliff Lee, and tonight's opponent, Cole Hamels, come to mind. Hamels is once again dialed in this season with a 2.73 ERA and 1.03 WHIP. For Atlanta, Brandon Beachy will look to maintain his stellar start to the season (1.05 ERA, 0.97 WHIP). Obviously those numbers can't be maintained, but his talent is hardly a fluke after posting 169 strikeouts in 141.2 innings last season. He'll face a Philadelphia offense that has really struggled to produce runs. They've picked it up of late (4.71 runs per game last 7 games) but they certainly benefited from facing some weak starting pitchers (Josh Read more
