NFL Betting News: Raiders to Las Vegas not that far-fetched

02.11.2016     08:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Las Vegas Raiders? Oddsmakers are saying it isn't all that much of a longshot.


"A lot of people are talking 10-1 or 100-1, but I would make it much lower," said Jimmy Vaccaro, a veteran Las Vegas oddsmaker. "It's a lot closer to happening than we once thought. I have the lowest odds on the Raiders being here. It should be less than 10-1."

Super Bowl 50 Gambling: Sportsbooks may become desperate for money on Denver Broncos

02.03.2016     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to various Las Vegas sportsbooks, "no one" is betting the Denver Broncos. Sports Options lists the public money to be 76% on the Carolina Panthers. Offshore, Carolina sits -5.5 while -6 is the prevailing number in Vegas.


"This year is really rare in that nobody is betting on the Broncos. For whatever reason, we just don't seem to see any money coming in on Denver, and floods of money coming in on the Carolina Panthers," said Matt Holt, sports wagering expert with the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Race and Sports Book and CG Technology.

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Boston College Eagles at Virginia Cavaliers

Boston College at Virginia -24 O/U 123.5
Recommendation: Under


The 9th ranked Virginia Cavaliers welcome the last place Boston College Eagles to Charlottesville tonight in what projects to be one of the more lopsided matchups of the year in ACC conference play. Tonight’s matchup pins a top-tier defense vs. an inept offense that statistically is among the worst offenses in the nation. The Cavaliers are on a four-game winning streak thanks to a return to the defensive form that's been a staple throughout Tony Bennett's tenure. "I think defense is a hard one to figure out for us. It just takes such a commitment to it. We've had a lot of teaching moments because of the defense this year to be honest." Virginia is still stingy at home where it's 10-0 and allowing 60 points per contest. That does not bode well for Boston College (7-14, 0-8) who has failed to score more than 64 or shoot better than 46.9% while losing all its ACC games by an average of 21 points. The Eagles' closest margin of defeat in the league came in a 72-62 loss to Florida State last Tuesday. The Eagles have averaged over 70 possessions their last three games vs. teams Read more

NFL Gambling: Former Cowboys running back accused of betting on sports

02.02.2016     08:39 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Better dust out the pointspread archives to find out whether or not there was anything fishy going on with the Dallas Cowboys. Reports have come out that former running back Joseph Randle was waived in part because of his affinity of sports betting. Randle denies any involvement.


"There are certain types of gambling that you can't do as a player," he said. "Obviously you can't be involved in ... anything that we're competing in, and I've never heard of anything like that."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 50 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

Former football players busted for illegal gambling and more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oh, man, this is good stuff. We have a former USC football player, former NFL player, meth, heroin, offscreen sportsbooks, and the icing on the cake, a DVD of someone being decapitated.


He ran several websites such as betodog.com used by bettors, coordinating payments and directing the distribution of proceeds, according to the indictment. 

Later, a DVD depicting a masked person beheading two men with a chainsaw and a knife, along with the message, “If you don’t pay us our money, this will happen to you” was sent to the customer, the indictment said.











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

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

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors

Miami at Toronto -11 O/U 186
Recommendation: Toronto


The Miami Heat are in a world of hurt right now, a bet-against team in any reasonable price range.  My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against Miami twice already this week, two blowout losses where they trailed from the opening tip.  And frankly, there’s little reason to expect a better effort as they travel to Toronto tonight.

The Heat are in the midst of a truly brutal scheduling stretch, as tough as any team will face all year.  They’re playing a stretch of 18 consecutive games with a court change, a nightmarish situation for a very banged up team that desperately needs some practice time that they’re not going to get anytime soon.

And "very banged up" doesn’t even accurately describe Eric Spoelstra’s squad right now.  ‘Decimated with injuries’ might be superior phraseology.  The Heat won’t have starting center Hassan Whiteside tonight, dealing with hip and knee injuries.  They won’t have starting guard Dwayne Wade either, out with a lingering shoulder injury.  Read more
