Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Las Vegas sportsbooks promote "Big Game" parties

01.28.2015     11:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Add the NFL to the list of things that suck. The other day we linked to a list of all of the Las Vegas sportsbooks hosting Super Bowl parties. There's one common theme: the sportsbooks aren't allowed to promote their party using the term "Super Bowl." Geesh. "Big Game" seems to be the most commonly used alternative. The NFL dropped the hammer on this over a decade ago but still feels the need to pop it's head in every year for a passive aggressive reminder to never mess with the machine.

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

01.28.2015     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
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."

Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Offshore still rules the roost when it comes to prop bets

01.27.2015     01:47 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you're looking to bet some of the crazy props associated with the Super Bowl, you'll have to do so offshore. Las Vegas is still limited in what they can allow; basically anything not associated with the box score is a no-no with the exception of the coin flip. Meanwhile, most offshore/offscreen sportsbooks offers the likes of Bill Belichick's hoodie color as well as the Nielsen TV Rating.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors ready for Super Bowl XLIX

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Super Bowl time again.  I use this line every year because it’s true – this IS the moral equivalent of Christmas Day for many sports bettors.  Yet, much like last year, many of the professional full time bettors that I know are rather disappointed with the proposition betting opportunities for Super Bowl XLIX – there’s simply not much low hanging fruit.  The biggest and best sportsbooks (market leaders both here in Vegas and offshore) have learned from previous mistakes.  Weak numbers do NOT abound in 2015.

Let me start with the game itself.  The Super Bowl itself has been an underdog bettor’s paradise in recent years.   The Seahawks were underdogs at kickoff last year in their blowout win over the Broncos. The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2013, as the underdog, beating the favored 49ers.  The Giants won the year before as an underdog; knocking off the Patriots.  In 2010, the Saints won straight up as a dog over Peyton Manning and the Colts.  In 2009, the Cardinals covered the spread in a tight loss to the Steelers.  In 2008, the Gia nts beat the favored 18-0 Patriots Read more

Season ticket sales key if NHL wants to set up shop in Las Vegas

01.20.2015     01:19 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NHL is considering an expansion team in Las Vegas but before they pull the trigger, the biggest question remains will there be enough interest? Obviously they’ll draw from the tourist crowd but local interest, particularly that of season ticket holders, will be paramount.


"I've never understood who the Vegas market is," said former Calgary Flames general manager Craig Button. "People live there (because they work there). I don't know any Las Vegans or whatever you call them. I don't know if you can have a professional sports team there if you don't know who your market is."

"If we sell 10,000 season tickets, I believe we will go a long ways to getting the franchise," Foley told USA TODAY Sports. "Ten thousand is our number."

Government threatens casinos that allow third party sports betting

01.20.2015     07:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The U.S. Treasury Department is cracking down on third party betting at sportsbooks including "runners."


“In these cases, the intermediaries rarely voluntarily disclose to the casino that a transaction is being conducted on behalf of a third party, thereby disguising the third party’s role in the transaction and obscuring the source of funds used to place the bet. This poses distinct money laundering risks for casinos,” FinCEN said in the letter.
