Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Total Interceptions by Both Teams

Total Interceptions by Both Teams
Recommendation: Over 1.5 (-105 @ 5Dimes)

Baltimore has faced a trio of strong quarterbacks and passing attacks in the playoffs thus far. Despite allowing a rather hefty 286.7 passing yards per game this postseason, the Ravens have been a successful ball hawking secondary. Versus Andrew Luck, Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, Baltimore has come up with five interceptions mostly due to physical coverage and an active defensive line. Batted balls by Ravens defensive linemen frustrated the 6-5 Brady in the AFC Championship including a key fourth quarter interception. The active, arms up approach of Baltimore’s defensive line has now seen three straight above average sized quarterbacks and should be able to create a couple of opportunities against 6-6 Colin Kaepernick who doesn’t have an extremely high release point. Ravens cornerbacks Corey Graham and Cary Williams along with veteran free safety Ed Reed are all capable of capitalizing on whatever chances are created.

For San Francisco it has been a different story in the playoffs as they’ve yet to come up with an interception. However, they had Read more

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Ray Lewis total tackles

Ray Lewis solo tackles + special teams solo tackles + assisted tackles
Recommendation: Over 10.5 (-165 at LVH)

It’s important to note in this bet that LVH does not count sacks toward the total. You should check to see whether or not they count if you play it at another shop. Having said that, Lewis doesn’t get many sacks anyway (just one this season to date) so it shouldn’t be a factor one way or another.

Lewis played just six regular season games thanks to a serious triceps injury but he was very productive in those six games. In his final regular season appearance he racked up a combined 14 solo and assisted tackles. In his three-game stint since coming back from injury here in the playoffs he’s racked up a combined 34 solo and assisted tackles and has obliterated the 10.5 number we see here in all three games. And San Francisco, with their ground and pound between the tackles style running, should play right into our hands with this bet and give Lewis plenty of opportunities to rack up stops.

This is the perfect complement to our Read more

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Frank Gore Rushing Attempts

Frank Gore Rushing Attempts
Recommendation: Over 19.5 (-105) @ 5Dimes

Frank Gore is a workhorse for the 49ers, plain and simple. Their preferred method of attack is to pound the football on the ground and San Francisco has arguably the best offensive line in NFL so that method makes perfect sense. Based on season long numbers this prop might seem like it’s priced high at first glance but don’t let those season long numbers cloud your view.

Gore didn’t have the heaviest workload during the regular season as head coach Jim Harbaugh routinely spelled him with Kendall Hunter. But Hunter went down with a knee injury and hasn’t played since Week 12. Let’s look at Gore’s workload pre and post Hunter injury…

While in the rotation with Hunter in Weeks 1 through 12 Gore had just two 20 carry games. Since Hunter went down Gore had three 20 carry games in the final five weeks of the regular season and two 20 carry games so far here in the playoffs. That’s five 20 or more carry games in the last seven weeks! We can put an asterisk next to one of the games during this seven week run where Gore Read more

Sportsmemo Handicapper Teddy Covers' Super Bowl XLVII Gambling Update

Editor’s Note: Join Teddy at the LVH Showroom at 5 pm PT on Saturday, February 2nd for the ‘red carpet’ premiere of the new sportsbetting documentary movie ‘Life on the Line’.  It’s free to attend, and the event will last about an hour. 

It’s no secret where the early money has come on the Super Bowl.  At the opening number, San Francisco was as high as a 5.5-point favorite offshore, with mostly -5’s here in Las Vegas.  But we’ve seen steady Baltimore money pour in since that time, driving the line down to the -3.5 or -4 range at every sportsbook in town; numbers that are currently attracting two way action.  I expect the 49ers to be in that same pointspread range (-3.5 or -4) between now and kickoff.

The early sharp money has also come in support of the Under.  One prominent offshore book opened the total at 52.5, and here in Vegas we saw several books open with a total of 50.  Through the first week of Super Bowl betting, the Under has been a popular wiseguy choice.  The prevailing current offshore number is 47.5; here in Vegas we’re looking at mostly Read more

Super Bowl XLVII Gambling: Kaepernick prop bets a big hit for Vegas sportsbooks

01.25.2013     11:27 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
According to William Hill's Jimmy Vaccaro, the handle for Colin Kaepernick prop bets is reaching epic proportions. We'll go out on a limb and say that a vast majority of those wagers weren't correlated to the rookie quarterback underperforming.

"We put 10 props on him last week and generated more than $100,000 in bets," Vaccaro said. "To put that in perspective, a good prop is when you can draw $2,500 to $5,000 in bets."

"But I've never seen interest on prop bets like I've seen with Kaepernick," Vaccaro said. "We think we can do $300,000 in Kaepernick prop bets alone and that's a conservative estimate. No one has ever come close to that number."

Overlooked Super Bowl XLVII Handicapping Factor: Baltimore's Disruptive Defense

01.25.2013     07:04 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

We’re still early in the hype sequence for this year’s Super Bowl. But, already, it’s pretty clear that the main stories are going to be:

The Harbaugh brother angle

Colin Kaepernick and related Kaepernickia

Joe Flacco breaking through to “elite” status

Ray Lewis’s retirement

Something I think has been overlooked so far (and I'm including myself in this) is the role Baltimore’s defense has played in disrupting opposing quarterbacks so far in the playoffs. You regulars know that I developed a ridiculously simple stat for eyeballing how clean or sloppy an offense is playing…or, from the other perspective, how clean or sloppy an opposing defense allows an offense to play.

Sloppiness: 5 times turnovers…plus the number of incomplete passes

I’m pleased that so many have agreed with me that this is a great stat for painting the picture of a game, even if it is embarrassingly Read more

Dude wins $8,500 from NFL owner

01.23.2013     02:03 PM     Printer Friendly
Wouldn't it be nice if sportsbooks and locals were this gracious – and timely with their payouts? Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted that he'd pay $8,500 to the first person to correctly predict the score of last week's AFC Championship. One dude guessed Baltimore 27-14 and despite being a point off (Ravens won 28-13) he received a FedEx package with the full amount and a note from Irsay.
