Super Bowl LI Gambling: Atlanta Falcons saw little to no preseason futures action

01.30.2017     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You would think sportsbooks would be exposed if the Atlanta Falcons win Super Bowl LI due to their big odds heading into the season (as high as 100-1). According to one Las Vegas sportsbook, Atlanta was the second-least bet team in terms of Super Bowl futures.


“We’d actually do better on the Falcons (winning) than the Patriots,” Simbal said. “In fact, before the season started, they were the second-least bet team. Only the Titans had less.”

“They’re not a real public team,” Esposito said. “Even after their hot start, there were still a lot of nonbelievers.”

Super Bowl LI Gambling: Westgate Superbook Prop Bets go public on Thursday night

01.24.2017     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas' Westgate Superbook will offer its famed NFL Super Bowl prop bets starting Thursday at 7 pm. Bettors will be able to access the bets on site but also on the Westgate's mobile app.


“It is very, very time-consuming because you have to be 100 percent accurate with the spelling, with the numbers, with the betting numbers, all the disclaimers,” Kornegay said. “We don’t want any kind of controversy with how a certain prop is graded. There can’t be one ‘T’ that’s not crossed. It’s all got to be double-, triple-checked, quadruple-checked.”

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable. The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers. From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deal that pumps more than three billion dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more

Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 51 Prop Bets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When I talk with casual fans in the week leading up to the Super Bowl, they tend to be interested in my opinion about who is going to win the big game. But when I’m talking with bettors, not fans, the topic inevitably turns towards props; where sports betting and fantasy sports collide.

Props have been on the Las Vegas betting boards for thirty years. It all began when the juggernaut 1985 Chicago Bears were facing the Patriots in Super Bowl 20. Legendary Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro was a very creative bookmaker at the Mirage (at the time), looking for ways to increase their betting handle. Vaccaro posted odds on whether 350 pound defensive lineman William ‘Refrigerator’ Perry would score a touchdown in the big game. Vaccaro certainly didn’t think it was likely, offering attractive underdog odds for those who wanted to bet on The Fridge would hit paydirt in the end zone.

Vaccaro’s unique offering attracted all kinds of attention both from bettors and from media types. It also accomplished his goal of increasing betting handle, with money pouring in on the ‘Yes, Fridge will score a TD’ side of the prop at big (but Read more
