Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Mini-Camp Betting News

06.22.2015     01:34 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
All 32 NFL teams have concluded their OTA’s (organized team activities) and mini-camps over the past few weeks.  There’s nothing else on the horizon for the NFL before the start of training camps in mid-July.  Therefore, it’s time for bettors and fans alike to fixate on the news trickling out of those mini-camps over the last few weeks.  Here are half a dozen such reports, with teams listed in alphabetical order and information coming from local sources.

Arizona Cardinals - Arizona was an elite team with Carson Palmer behind center last year.  When Palmer got hurt, they were still a pretty good team until Drew Stanton got hurt as well.  Once Arizona was down to a third stringer at quarterback, the back end of the season was ugly as they closed out with a 2-5 stretch, culminating in a blowout to Carolina in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs.

Both Palmer and Stanton fully participated in mini-camp, with Palmer entering the new season as the clear starter, even at 35 years old and coming off his second ACL surgery.  Palmer wowed observers at mini-camp, looking extremely sharp in 11-on-11 Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at Houston Texans

Philadelphia at Houston
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Philadelphia -2.5 O/U 50
CRIS Current: Philadelphia -1 O/U 48.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Philadelphia -1
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Philadelphia

For all its offensive prowess, Philadelphia ranks last in the league in touchdowns scored in the red zone and they also lead the NFL in turnovers in the red zone. Those struggles have a chance of being corrected this week as their offensive line welcomes back center Jason Kelce which makes the unit the healthiest it has been in six weeks.

The addition figures to provide Nick Foles better pass protection against the formidable Houston pass rush and with 4/5 of the offensive line back on the field, LeSean McCoy’s numbers should continue to ascend. While having almost the entire o-line back is a huge boost for Philadelphia’s offense, an equally important return is that of Darren Sproles who Read more

NFL Gambling Alert: Tennessee Titans name Mettenberger starter

Houston at Tennessee

The Tennessee Titans announced Zach Mettenberger will start Sunday's divisional game vs. Houston. Jake Locker is of course hurt and expected to return as the starter when healthy. His backup, Charlie Whitehurst, wasn't awful and posted a respectable 93.2 QB rating. In fact, Locker has attempted only 14 more passes than Whitehurst but sports a dismal 75.9 rating. No line on the game.

NFL Gambling Update: Houston Texans still talking about playing up-tempo

Houston at Dallas -6 O/U 46.5

Another article on the Houston Texans wanting to pick up the pace offensively. Through four games (2-2 O/U) the Texans are averaging only 61.5 plays per game (26th). As mentioned in a previous blog, it took time for Penn State to play at Bill O’Brien’s prefered tempo.

 

"We've run a lot of our offense," O'Brien said. "I think what we need to do is definitely run it at a more efficient pace and with more efficient production. Meaning, we've got to get our guys where they're able to just go out there and play. Hopefully, with this game plan, we're able to do that.

"It's always going to be part of something that we

NFL Gambling Preview: Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys

Houston at Dallas
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Dallas -4 O/U 46
CRIS Current: Dallas -6 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Dallas -5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

The Cowboys physical offensive line is rapidly becoming a significant factor in their games and there’s an opportunity this week for them to again be a force. Even though the Texans possess a nasty defensive front, their strength is bit one sided with their pass rush capabilities exceeding those of their run stopping. Last week’s 4.2 yards per carry allowed to Buffalo was the best performance from Houston’s run defense this season. That is likely to be problematic for them this week when they face the Dallas OL and NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray. The new balance in the Dallas offense created by their rushing attack (165.0 rypg) has propelled them to an average of 30.3 ppg (1 defensive TD not included) and 384.3 typg during their Read more

NFL Betting News: Houston's O'Brien wants offense to pick up pace

Houston -3 at Oakland O/U 39.5

Great article on Houston head coach Bill O'Brien's desire to play at a faster clip. In Week 1, the Texans ran only 56 plays en route to a 17-6 win over Washington. Playing with more tempo won't happen overnight. O'Brien's offense is fairly sophisticated, hence why Harvard grad Ryan Fitzpatrick was tabbed the starting quarterback. Interesting to note that in O'Brien's first season at Penn State, the Nittany Lions went under the total in each their first four games. They then closed the season on a 7-1 run to the OVER.

 

“We need to have more up-tempo,” head coach O’Brien said on Wednesday. “There’s different definitions of up-tempo. I’m not talking about necessarily going warp speed all the time. I’m just saying, we’ve got to get into a better rhythm and

NFL Preseason Handicapping: Bettors expecting bounceback effort from Houston Texans

08.12.2014     07:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
First-year head coach Bill O'Brien's debut wasn't pretty as his Houston Texans were shutout, 32-0, at Arizona. The quarterback play in particular was poor with Ryan Fitzpartick throwing two interceptions. O'Brien said that Fitzpatrick will remain the team's starter followed by Case Keenum and rookie Tom Savage. Bettors are banking on a better performance in Week 2 with Houston bet up from -2 to -2.5/-3 vs. Atlanta.


''I don't think you can let it play with your confidence at all,'' Fitzpatrick said. ''You've just got to take it for what it was, learn from it and move on. It was the first one, I'm disappointed, but we've already moved on and we're out here at practice trying to get better.''

NFL Gambling Preview: Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts

Houston at Indianapolis
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Indianapolis -6.5 O/U 45.5
CRIS Current: Indianapolis -5 O/U 45.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Indianapolis -8
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Indianapolis

The wiseguys here in Vegas absolutely despise the Colts; rare vitriol from professional bettors.  Why the abject hatred for Indy?  Simple – Indy’s stats are lousy, just like they were last year; yet the Colts are on a 16-8 ATS run in their last 24 ballgames.  In other words, the sharp $$ has been fading Indy for two years and consistently losing those bets; a mounting source of frustration.

Those same wiseguys have cashed betting against the Colts three times in their last five games; blowout losses against the Rams, Cardinals and Bengals.  And we’re seeing heavy money pour in on Houston, against Indy again this week; giving us a very favorable line to support Read more

NFL Betting News: Houston to start Keenum vs. Indianapolis

Indianapolis -2.5 at Houston O/U 44.5

Looks like Houston's Case Keenum will start Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Keenum finished 15-of-25 for 271 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 7 loss at Kansas City.


"Gary loves him,” a source told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora last week. “He's extremely cerebral. He doesn't have that big arm but he fits their mold -- he can extend plays and get out of the way. He understands the system. That's going to be a tough environment but he shows a pulse and moves the team some, I bet he sticks with him after the [Week 8] bye.”
