Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Betting public loads up on safety prop

01.29.2015     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two of the most popular Super Bowl prop bets from the betting public have been "yes" on will there be a safety or overtime. Amazingly, the last three Super Bowls have featured a safety -- each time a big kick in the nuts to sportsbooks. According to Las Vegas' MGM, 70 of the first 71 bets on the safety prop were on "yes."


"This is a sign that people will bet anything," Jay Kornegay, vice president of race and sports operations at the SuperBook, said with a laugh. "We've got one ticket on Seattle scoring exactly four points at 9,999-to-1."

Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: New England Patriots remain hottest bet in Las Vegas

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been well documented that the early money for Super Bowl XLXI has come in on the New England Patriots. But exactly how much you ask? According to Las Vegas' Westgate, the ratio is a startling 3.5-to-1. That said, less than 20% of projected handle is currently in play.


"It hasn't slowed people down as far as liking the Patriots -- they don't care," head oddsmaker Ed Salmons said. "That outside noise, trying to predict how it's going to affect a team, is impossible. Unless you're inside that locker room, you don't know."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Pittsburgh Panthers at Virginia Tech Hokies

01.27.2015     06:57 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pittsburgh at Virginia Tech +4.5
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Virginia Tech has endured a brutal scheduling stretch with Louisville, North Carolina, Notre Dame, and Virginia over the span of the last two weeks. They were handled rather easily in three of the four but showed some fight last time out with a three-point home loss to rival Virginia. Tonight, Pitt comes to town, and it marks a huge step down in class. The Panthers are still living on reputation because the product on the floor is very flawed. Long noted for being a top-tier defense, Pitt currently ranks 15th in the ACC in defensive efficiency vs. league foes. They also struggle to shoot from the outside (26.7% 3-point) and will almost assuredly see some form of zone from the Hokies. Nearly half of VT's games have been decided by three points or less meaning they are capable of competing but because of their youth have had a difficult time getting over the hump. This marks the best opportunity for an ACC win to-date and the bonus is we're catching +4.5. Take the home underdog.

College Basketball Handicapping: Syracuse's power rating continues to slide

01.26.2015     07:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Anyone who bothers to do college basketball power ratings has steadily dropped Syracuse throughout the season. Ken Pom had the Orange 11th to start the season -- and rightfully so given their pedigree of finishing 4th through 16th each of the previous six seasons. But following Saturday's home loss to Miami, KP whacked the 'Cuse down to 71st. Sagarin is a little more friendly at 56th.

As pointed out on Friday's Sportsmemo Podcast, Syracuse’s ACC schedule has been extremely friendly and about to get far more difficult. Syracuse has faced one ACC team (Miami, 44th KP) in the KP top 100. They've yet to face North Carolina (tonight in Chapel Hill), Duke (twice), Louisville, Notre Dame, Virginia, and NC State. Combine their lackluster play and soft schedule and it should come as a shock to see tonight's double-digit price tag vs. the Tar Heels. What Syracuse has been able to do this season is perform as an underdog. They were +10 vs. Villanova and lost in overtime, +4.5 at Michigan and lost by three, and beat Iowa outright as +2.5 dogs.

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls hold team meeting to address crappy defense

01.22.2015     08:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a very uncharacteristic run for the Chicago Bulls who have lost six of eight and haven't played much of any defense. Playing the Bulls or the under off a bad defensive performance used to be a high percentage play. Heading into tonight's game vs. San Antonio, they've allowed 100+ in five straight games. On Tuesday, head coach Tom Thibodeau canceled practice and held a team meeting. According to Derrick Rose, the Bulls' schtick is getting pretty old.


"It was a good meeting," Bulls center Pau Gasol said Wednesday. "Positive, important, where people just spoke up, shared their thoughts. If we want to get out of this slump, we've got to do it together. We can't really do it individually. We have to do it together as a team, as a group. And that's how you get through stuff, especially adversity."

"We got to give a better effort," Derrick Rose said that night. "It seems like we're not even competing, and it's f---ing irritating."

A perfect match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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

Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Oddsmakers project game to go off as a pick 'em

01.19.2015     01:48 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After an initial rush of New England Patriots support, oddsmakers aren't expecting much if any line movement on the side for Super Bowl XLIX. Most sportsbooks have settled in at a pick ‘em with a few offering Seattle -1.


“You’re not going to see this one bounce around like you did last year,” asserted Jimmy Vaccaro of the South Point sports book. “Last year the whole world was in love with Denver early and there was a crush at the (betting) window. But this game is going to stay right around Seattle a 1-point favorite or pick ‘em the whole entire way.”

College Basketball Handicapping: Duke the latest to jump on zone bandwagon

01.19.2015     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We've seen a lot of historically strong man-to-man teams switch to a zone defense this season. Ohio State played it almost exclusively during non-conference play. Purdue has toyed with it at times. And after allowing 177 points in back-to-back games, Coach K decided to test the waters and went on the road and held Louisville to 52 points. And why not? A vast majority of college basketball teams are limited in some way offensively. Louisville for example can't shoot for the outside. So rather than trying to chase them around and keep them from driving to the hoop, you simply pack in a 2-3 zone and let them fire away. Zone, as we know, can have a significant impact on the pace of games. Louisville and Duke both like to play up-tempo but the Blue Devils went zone and the end result was 120 possessions; 28 possessions fewer than Duke's previous game vs. Miami. The question now becomes, is this something bettors can expect moving forward? Tonight's opponent, Pittsburgh, can't shoot either (42.3% eFG, 26% 3-point vs. ACC). Coach K doesn't WANT to play Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference Betting News and Notes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There’s only one meaningful game remaining in the 2014 football season.  Meanwhile, the NBA has reached the halfway point of the 2014-15 campaign without much fanfare.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll be focusing on NBA Notes and Quotes from three pointspread outliers from the Eastern Conference.  How can we make money off these teams as they morph from contenders to pretenders or vice versa?  Read on to find out!

The Atlanta Hawks have been the single most under-reported story of the current NBA season, by a fairly wide margin.  Make no mistake about it – right now, the Hawks are the best team in the Eastern Conference and it’s not even close!  And, as a smaller market team without marquee superstars, Atlanta continues to retain their pointspread value; still very much a bet-on team two full months after their hot streak started!

Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was a longtime Greg Popovich assistant in San Antonio, and his team is drawing comparisons to the Spurs on a nightly basis.  Budenholzer’s squad relies, like the defending champs, on ball movement and depth.  The Hawks lead Read more
