NFL Handicapping: Baltimore to take shots in passing game vs. Oakland

09.18.2015     08:10 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A week removed from producing only 117 yards in the passing game, the Baltimore Ravens are looking to open things up against Oakland. And you'd be hard pressed to find a better opponent to do so against as the Raiders allowed Cincinnati's Andy Dalton to post one of the best stat lines of his career in Week 1: 25-of-34, 269 yards, 2 TDs.


"I can understand the frustration. Even some of the offensive players ourselves, we're leading the protests of having a better offense," Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith Sr. said Thursday. "I got my pitchfork, too, saying that we need to be better. I understand that. We're right there side by side with the fans. We understand their frustration."

NFL Handicapping: Oddsmakers, bettors show distaste for Denver Broncos

09.17.2015     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After only one regular season game, oddsmakers and the betting markets have certainly changed their tune about the Denver Broncos. Way back in the spring, CG Technology priced Denver as a 1-point road favorite for Sunday's Week 2 game vs. Kansas City. Despite winning and covering Week 1's game against Baltimore --- in albeit ugly fashion --- Denver opened +1.5 at KC. The Westgate's lookahead line from last week was a pick 'em. Following CRIS's opener of KC -1.5 we've seen nothing but KC money with the Chiefs now -3 with the juice as high as -125. According to Sports Options, 61% of the public is on Kansas City.

NFL Gambling Preview: Houston Texans at Carolina Panthers

Houston at Carolina
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Carolina -3.5 O/U 41
CRIS Current: Carolina -3 O/U 40
Recommendation: Under

The Texans were ambushed in the first half of their home opener by Kansas City last Sunday as the Chiefs scored on five consecutive possessions resulting in 27 points. In that mix were a pair of Houston turnovers (1 interception, 1 fumble) which set the Chiefs up in point blank range at the Texans’ 13- and 7-yard lines. Those turnovers cost Houston 14 points and in all, three of KC’s five scoring drives were 22 yards or less.

Houston’s second half performance was much cleaner on both sides of the ball as the offense did not commit a turnover and the defense pitched a shutout forcing four punts on Kansas City’s five possessions. The rally fell short but the Texans did get the once blowout to the point where Kansas City had to recover an onside kick to secure the 27-20 victory. Not really that bad for a game when you consider Houston’s average starting position was their own 19 while the Chiefs’ was their own 40. Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Arizona Cardinals at Chicago Bears

Arizona at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Arizona -2 O/U 45
CRIS Current: Arizona -2 O/U 45
Recommendation: Arizona

The Chicago Bears opened up the year with a tough 31-23 loss to Green Bay. Running back Matt Forte was solid with 141 rushing yards and a touchdown and while Chicago's defense has shown some improvement from last season's horrific campaign, there are still some glaring issues. The Bears allowed 6.1 yards per play with some terrible displays of missed tackling and poor reading of rushing routes against the Packers. Things won't be any easier this week with Arizona. The Cards pulled away from New Orleans with two late touchdowns to earn the 31-19 victory. Arizona's tough defense held a very good Saints offense to four field goals and only 54 yards on the ground. Offensively, the Cardinals averaged 7.5 yards per play and were a perfect 3-for-3 inside the red zone.

The Bears are going to have to diversify their offense and take more chances when nearing the red zone. They seemed too reliant on short passes and screens last game and while Arizona has two Read more

Congress starting to suspect DFS is a form of gambling

09.15.2015     07:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After seeing 12,000 FanDuel and DraftKings commercials during Week 1 of the NFL regular season, Congress feels it is now necessary to examine the relationship between DFS and gambling.


“Anyone who watched a game this weekend was inundated by commercials for fantasy sports websites, and it’s only the first week of the NFL season,” Pallone said in a statement. “These sites are enormously popular, arguably central to the fans’ experience, and professional leagues are seeing the enormous profits as a result. Despite how mainstream these sites have become, though, the legal landscape governing these activities remains murky and should be reviewed.”

“Fans are currently allowed to risk money on the performance of an individual player,” Pallone said. “How is that different than wagering money on the outcome of a game?”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How the NFL betting markets have changed

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When I first moved to Las Vegas just prior to the 1998 football season, I was not an experienced, seasoned bettor.  There was a TON to learn, and for my first few years in town, I made sure to consume every bit of handicapping material I could find, primarily through books, newsletters and radio.  And just about all of that source material referenced some key NFL concepts for winning.

“Don’t play road favorites; they’re a low expectation wager.”  “Week 1 in the NFL is the lowest scoring week until the cold weather hits – look for Unders, especially with the highest totals.”  “Beware the public teams; you’re laying a premium price to support them.”  “There’s more value in underdogs than in favorites.”  “The key numbers of ‘3’ and ‘7’ are crucial to have working in your favor.”  I could go on and on, but you get the point.  I’m quite confident that 18 years later, many relative newbies continue to rely on very similar concepts.  The conventional wisdom in the sportsbetting world, even for a sport as popular to Read more

NFL Gambling: Looking back on last night's Cowboys-Giants fiasco

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Did you happen to catch the last five minutes of Sunday night's Dallas-New York game? Whoa. We're still trying to figure out exactly how the Cowboys won. It was an epic fail of historical proportion for the Giants.

Deadspin does a good job breaking down the comedy of errors.

Coughlin and Manning are BOTH using the "that one's on me, fellas" excuse.

The in-game win probability will make your brain hurt.

Betting wise, there was a ton in play, particularly the total. And you know plenty of parlay cards had the Cowboys.

Las Vegas sportsbooks take hit on Week 1 NFL

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With NFL favorites going 9-4 ATS on Sunday, it wasn't a great day for Las Vegas sportsbooks.


"I don't remember a worse opening Sunday," said Jay Kornegay, chief of the Westgate SuperBook and a 20-year veteran bookmaker.

"At our joint, the Rams winning was good for the parlays, but we had some pretty high, smart bets on the Rams," Simbal said. "We had 1.5 [times] more tickets on Seattle, but 2.5 times more money on the Rams. That was a game that was pretty much public vs. pro. And pro wins."
