Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: The Secret Truth About the NFL

04.25.2016     08:25 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Everybody is talking about quarterbacks, with the NFL draft upcoming, starting on Thursday.  In recent weeks, both the St Louis Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles paid a steep price to move up to #1 and #2. The expectations are that California's Jared Goff and North Dakota State's Carson Wentz will go with the top two picks, although their draft order is still up in the air. 

If things go well with those two picks, the Rams and Eagles will be set up for the long term with above average quarterbacks.  If things go poorly with those two picks, the Rams and Eagles will be steady, consistent losers until the next time they draft a QB in the first round.  In fact, that’s exactly where the Rams have just been since they picked Sam Bradford #1 overall back in 2010.

The advanced metric pundits are all screaming bad deal for the two teams that traded up, and great deal for the two teams that traded down (Tennessee and Cleveland).  And the history of QB’s going #1 and #2 in the draft hasn’t seen two above average quarterbacks in those spots since 1971. 

Here’s the list:
2015- Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota Read more

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Submitted by Teddy Covers

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

College Basketball Handicapping: Calipari says refs are no longer calling enough fouls

01.21.2016     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Kentucky head coach John Calipari, the referees have reverted back to allowing too much physical play. This theory comes on the heels of UK's 75-70 loss at Auburn in which the Cats committed 25 fouls while the Tigers committed only 13. Auburn also nearly doubled up Kentucky from the line with 31 attempts to only 18. In five SEC games, Kentucky has committed 119 fouls vs. only 93 from the opposition. SEC foes have also shot 130 free throws to Kentucky's 111. That's a far cry from last season when UK shot on average seven more free throws per game that its opponents.


“We gotta go back to football practice,” Calipari said. “All this stuff about rules, like we’re not going to put hands on, not going to hip check – it’s done. They clearly didn’t have the stomach to continue it, so we’re just going to go back to like I did in 2013, where we just said, ‘Put on the football helmets and let’s go.’

College Football Gambling Update: Sportsbooks cash in thanks to late Clemson touchdown

01.12.2016     08:27 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

The sportsbooks got their desired result in the College Football Playoff National Championship with Alabama winning but Clemson barging through the backdoor for the pointspread cover.


"It was enormous for us," said Ed Salmons, race and sportsbook manager for the Westgate Superbook. "It's just like the Super Bowl. You want the favorite to win because there are a lot of underdog bets on the money line, but you don't want them to cover the spread. So it worked out perfectly for us."

College Football Handicapping: Public prefers Alabama over Clemson

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to reports, the action in Las Vegas is fairly balanced on tonight's College Football Playoff National Championship between underdog Clemson and favorite Alabama. Around 60% of the "public money" is on the Crimson Tide. Most sportsbooks appear to be hoping for an Alabama straight up win but Clemson pointspread cover. Opinion remains split with most offshore shops showing Alabama -6.5 while Vegas remains -7.


"Every time we take a big bet on one side," a Caesars sportsbook manager said, "we get another to balance it out on the other."

College Football Betting: Clemson miffed about being an underdog to Alabama

01.08.2016     08:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
No matter what the sport, for title games and championships, the media likes to ask the underdog what it feels like to be, well, the underdog. According to one Clemson player, it's nothing new. Not that he should be able to rattle off the pointspread of every game this season but the Tigers were favored in every regular season game as well as the ACC Championship. He was correct in pointing out that the Tigers were dogs to Oklahoma in the last two meetings and obviously won outright.  Clemson is currently a +6.5/+7 underdog to Alabama for Monday’s CFB Championship.


“You go back to every big game we played this year, we were underdogs,” redshirt junior Travis Blanks said. “Notre Dame, Florida State, just go down the list. Some people picked us as an underdog in the ACC Championship against North Carolina. Oklahoma, this year and last year. It’s just all bologna.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Clemson vs. Alabama Betting Preview

01.04.2016     08:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One thing has legitimately changed in the four team playoff era, compared to the BCS Championship era that just ended prior to last year.  Instead of having three weeks to prepare for the title game, teams now have three weeks to prepare for a semi-final game, with a much shorter turnaround time prior to the title game.  The three previous national titles that Nick Saban won at Alabama all came under at least somewhat different circumstances than the title game they’ll play in next Monday.

When we take a look back at the national championship teams over the last decade, we can get a decent idea of the commonalities between those teams and use that to project forward for this year. Texas in 2005, Florida in 2006, LSU in 2007, Florida in 2008, Alabama in 2009, Auburn in 2010, Alabama in 2011 and 2012, Florida State in 2013 and Ohio State in 2014 combine to give us a profile worth noting.

The #1 commonality the last ten champions had is elite level talent.  That may sound obvious – it is obvious – but there are metrics worthy of mention that give an advantage to Alabama over Clemson.  Each of the last ten champs had a recruiting Read more

Cactus Bowl Betting Preview: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Arizona State Sun Devils

01.01.2016     08:57 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cactus Bowl - Phoenix, AZ
West Virginia vs. Arizona State
Saturday, January 2, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -1 O/U 66.5
CRIS Current: West Virginia -1.5 O/U 64
Recommendation: Arizona State

West Virginia is not exempt from the list of teams having to deal with starting personnel losses as All-Big XII first-team junior CB Daryl Worley and freshman WR Jovon Durante are out of this contest due to academics. Each has played in all 12 games this season and their absence figures to be felt. Worley (6 INTs, 12 pass break ups) is the Mountaineers best cover man which will test the coverage depth of their secondary. ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici (26 TD, 9 INT) has spread the ball around to a six player arsenal this season including running backs who have all caught between 24-54 passes. ASU can attack on all levels from horizontal to deep vertical which will make this difficult for West Virginia’s pass defense. Pressure from their defensive line against the Arizona State front that allowed 39 sacks this year will be crucial for WVA. The Sun Devils are extremely balanced with their Read more

Alamo Bowl Betting Preview: TCU Horned Frogs vs. Oregon Ducks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Alamo Bowl - San Antonio, TX
TCU vs. Oregon
Saturday, January 2, 3:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Oregon pk O/U 75
CRIS Current: Oregon -7 O/U 73.5
Recommendation: Oregon

Oregon just lost offensive coordinator Scott Frost, who took the Central Florida coaching job.  But the transition to new coordinator Matt Lubick should be relatively smooth.  Frost was expected to get a head coaching gig; Lubick was the heir apparent, and he, too, has already attracted attention as a rising young assistant.  Some pre-bowl assistant coaching changes are very meaningful, but this isn’t one of those situations.

It’s a very different story when we start to talk about the key losses that TCU has suffered.  Gary Patterson’s Horned Frogs ranked among the best teams in the country with Trevone Boykin at quarterback and Josh Doctson at wide receiver.  But Doctson’s arm is in a sling; he’s not going to suit up for the Alamo Bowl.  Doctson is absolutely worth something to the pointspread, a playmaker with 14 TD’s and a 17.0 yard per catch average Read more
