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

NBA Handicapping: Clippers lose Paul to injury, face daunting upcoming schedule

01.18.2017     09:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It doesn't take a genius to know that Chris Paul has a massive impact. According to ESPN's stats, the Clippers are 20 points better per 100 possessions when Paul is on the floor. Well, he won't be on the floor for a while as Paul suffered a thumb injury and will miss 6-8 weeks. Making matters worse is LA's upcoming schedule. Eleven of their next 15 are on the road. Four of those games are back-to-back situations. And three are against Golden State.

NFL Betting Trends: Packers-Falcons first game to be totaled 60 since 2000

01.17.2017     09:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Well, what do we have here? An NFL total of 60? When was the last time that occurred? Good question and according to one database, it hasn't since October 29, 2000 when the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers closed 62 (and landed 59). Since then, there have been a handful of 59/59.5's but no 60's. What's interesting is that Packers and Falcons met during the regular season; Week 8 to be exact. That total closed 51. The game, however, went flying over as Rodgers and Ryan combined for 56-of-73, 534 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions.

NFL Gambling: Bettors gear up for Conference Championship weekend

01.16.2017     11:37 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The scoreboard operator at the Georgia Dome in expected to be busy at Sunday’s NFC title clash between the Packers and Falcons. Both offenses should be primed to light up the scoreboard as evidenced by the fact this game is currently lined at 60/60.5 at every major offshore and Las Vegas sportsbook. Aaron Rodgers continued his elite level play in Sunday’s thrilling 34-31 win over Dallas. He completed 28-of-43 passes for 356 yards and now has a spectacular 21-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio during the Packers’ current 8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS surge. The absence of Jordy Nelson was negated by “step up” efforts from Davante Adams, Randall Cobb and Geronimo Allison (each with three or more catches). Tight end Jared Cook also hauled in six passes including the all-important one that set up the game winning field goal. But Green Bay’s defense was exposed, especially in the secondary, where injuries remain plentiful. Dallas rolled up 429 total yards including 302 through the air. That doesn’t bode well for their matchup against Matt Ryan and an Atlanta offense that posted some of the league’s best offensive numbers. Note that the Falcons ranked tops in the Read more

College Football Betting News: Clemson's win over Alabama crushed the books

01.11.2017     10:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Clemson's win over Alabama was not an ideal outcome for Las Vegas sportsbooks.

 

“It was definitely our worst college football game ever, and I’m pretty sure it was our biggest loss in a single game,” William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich said.

“It’s the highest single-game handle I’ve ever seen, which proves that college is catching up,” veteran South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said. “It keeps telling me I’ve been wrong for 20 years saying that we can’t get much better and we can’t write more tickets. The public keeps telling me, ‘Jimmy, go sit down. You’re wrong.’

“The intriguing thing to me was we wrote more on that game than we did on the first NFL game of the weekend.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Duke Blue Devils at Florida State Seminoles

01.10.2017     12:36 PM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Duke at Florida State -1.5 O/U 159
Recommendation: Florida State


The disparity in depth here is likely to be an issue now that talented but short-handed Duke is without starting center Amile Jefferson. Contrast the six-man double digit minutes rotation of the Blue Devils with that of the 11 Florida State players who average nearly 10+ minutes and the difference becomes extremely visible. After losing to FSU 93-78 this past Saturday, Virginia Tech’ Buzz Williams called the Seminoles’ dozen deep the best team Leonard Hamilton has ever had at Tallahassee.

Duke presents a huge challenge even without Jefferson (team-leading 10.1 rpg and 62.9% FGs) and Mike Krzyzewski. While Jefferson’s absence creates a huge mismatch in the paint against Florida State’s pair of 7-0 centers, Duke’s perimeter players and overall shooting ability make them tough to defend. Aside from their game at Virginia Tech (89-75 loss), Duke’s schedule has been very soft that last month. It will be interesting to see how this team fares in its second ACC road game. Note that Florida State is 7-2 ATS at home this season.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Syracuse Orange at Virginia Tech Hokies

Syracuse at Virginia Tech -3 O/U 149
Recommendation: Under


Good spots for a solid defensive effort from Virginia Tech tonight as the Hokies coughed up 104 and 93 in recent road games to NC State and Florida State. It was a classic case of falling in love with offense after Tech averaged over 90 ppg its previous five including an 89-75 win over Duke. Syracuse meanwhile went through a similar swatch of poor defense having allowed 93 to St. John's and 96 to Boston College. The Orange slowed down the pace of the last two games (61 and 62 possessions) and held Miami and Pitt to 55 and 66 respectively in two comfortable wins. Inexperience at the point guard position and high possession games forced the Orange to tap into their lackluster bench. Jim Boeheim had obviously seen enough and has essentially gone with a five-man rotation. It's more evidence that we will continue to see Syracuse play a more controlled brand of basketball. The game got played down some earlier this morning but at 149 I think we can still look to play it under.
