Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early primer on betting Super Bowl 50

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl 50 matchup is set.   In the end, second best didn’t cut it.  The team with the very best defense in the NFL this season – Denver – won a pair of tight home playoff games against banged up foes to return to the big game for the second time in three seasons.  The Broncos are set to face the team with the very best quarterback in the NFL this season – Carolina, with Cam Newton behind center; a Panthers team that finished with the best record in the league. 

The best quarterback vs. the best defense!  We saw this two years ago, when Peyton Manning set records with his play, but Manning tailed off down the stretch and the Seattle Seahawks elite defense controlled the flow right from the get-go in the biggest Super Bowl Blowout of the 21st century.

The irony here, of course, is that two years ago, Denver was here due to Peyton Manning, and they lost the Super Bowl to the league’s best defensive team.  Only two years later, Denver is here because THEY have the best defense in the NFL, facing off against an emerging yet elite dual threat quarterback.  That defense didn’t perform Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Conference Championship Preview

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
March Madness has a lock on the Final Four terminology, but we’re down to the final four teams standing in the NFL Playoffs following a wild weekend of football.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll take a look at how the Final Four teams still standing this NFL season survived, and what their realistic chances of Super Bowl success are moving forward into the Conference Championship Games this coming weekend.

Denver was outgained by more than two full yards per PLAY against the Steelers.  It was not vintage Peyton Manning, to put it mildly: 37 pass attempts for 215 yards, with only two passes all afternoon gaining more than 15 yards.  If you were watching the game, you already know how many missed connections that Manning had with his receivers – no shortage of inaccurate passes and dropped balls.  With the exception of one explosive 34-yard run by CJ Anderson, Denver’s running game wasn’t much better.  Anderson and Ronnie Hillman’s other 30 carries combined for just 76 yards.

But the Broncos avoided mistakes, playing turnover free football; the first time as a starter all season in which Manning Read more

NFL Gambling: Pittsburgh's Brown ruled out, money continues to trickle in on Denver

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's crazy that there's not a full market on Sunday's Pittsburgh-Denver game but easy to explain once you check the injury report. Ben Roethlisberger's shoulder is currently being held together with scotch tape. The same can be said about DeAngelo Williams' ankle. And news came out this morning that Antonio Brown has been ruled out due to a concussion suffered in last week's brawl vs. Cincinnati. Most sportsbooks offering action on the game have Denver north of a touchdown favorite. Remember, Pinnacle opened this game Broncos -3 with a little bit of juice.

NFL Gambling News: Packers want to push tempo vs. Cardinals

01.14.2016     07:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Green Bay Packers have been very open about their desire to play up-tempo against the Arizona Cardinals for this weekend's NFC Divisional Playoff matchup. The two teams met a few weeks back with Arizona winning 38-8. The total in that game was 50 which is the same number for Saturday's contest.


“We like to move the ball fast,” receiver James Jones said after the win over Washington. “When we get a good tempo going, we’re hard to stop.”

“It’s part of being part of a no-huddle offense, it’s important to us,” McCarthy said on Tuesday. “That’s the way we prefer to play, and we’re all about getting as many attempts at the plate as possible.”

“This is the way I learned it, the traditional West Coast offense built around making the quarterback successful,” McCarthy said, “and the best way to do that is to have a strong run game, play run and pass, and playing as fast as you can.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Evaluating the health of the remaining eight NFL playoff teams

01.11.2016     10:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wild Card weekend is in the rear view mirror, with all four road teams emerging victorious on the opening weekend of the NFL Playoffs.  One game was a blowout, with the Chiefs destroying the Texans.  Two games were coin flips that came down to last second field goals, with the Steelers making their field goal while the Vikings missed theirs, allowing Seattle to survive and advance.  And the fourth game was a close contest that turned into a blowout by the end of the fourth quarter thanks to a performance from Green Bay that was as good as anything that we’ve seen from the Packers since October.

The mainstream media will focus on the quarterbacks and the head coaches, because that’s what the mainstream media does.  In the mainstream world, Andy Reid; noted for a decade worth of playoff failures in Philadelphia, is now a genius because his team is on an 11-game winning streak.  Aaron Rodgers, off the worst statistical season of his career, is now back to his elite self; thanks to one playoff win against a banged up defense. 

Serious bettors know one thing about the NFL Playoffs – health matters!  Do the Read more

UPDATE

Looks like the NFL Wild Card strength of schedule trend held up yet another season. The "stronger" SOS teams (Kansas City, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, and Green Bay) went 3-1 SU and 3-1 ATS. That improved the overall record of the trend to 40-16 SU and 40-15-1 ATS dating back to 2002.

NFL Handicapping: Super cold temps expected for Seahawks-Vikings

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
So it's going to be cold in Minneapolis for Sunday's Seahawks-Vikings Wild Card matchup. Like, really cold. Like, around zero with a "Real Feel" of -20. The wind isn’t expected to be that bad at less than 10 mph. And it's an afternoon start with sunny skies. That said, the bettings markets have taken a strong whack at the under. The game opened 42.5 and was bet down to 39.5.
