NBA Betting News and Notes 1-23-2012

We’re nearly a quarter of the way through the lockout shortened NBA season, and there’s no shortage of key personnel or gameplan strategy changes around the league. Let’s take a look at a handful of teams with issues to discuss, concentrating on the notes and quotes that have the potential to make us some money in the days and weeks ahead.

Cleveland – The Cleveland Cavaliers returned home following a relatively successful road trip (3-4 SU, wins at Charlotte, Phoenix and Minnesota), with a miserable two game homestand. First, they lost by ten to Golden State, and they followed it up with a 39 point home loss – the worst home loss in franchise history – to a Bulls team playing without Derrick Rose. Then, the Cavs followed up that ugly blowout loss with another miserable showing the next night, losing by 28 at Atlanta. Obviously, there was a great deal of concern following those dismal showings.

Head coach Byron Scott: "We didn’t react to their physical play whatsoever – besides the whining… We’re going to see what type of men we have. Sometimes it takes hitting rock bottom Read more

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

NBA Betting Stock Watch: Boston Celtics not built for shortened season

Sell the Boston Celtics – Last week we discussed how the Denver Nuggets were a perfect fit for the lockout NBA season.  Well, the Celtics are on the complete other end of the spectrum.  They are declining in so many ways and when you add in the lockout, it has become an avalanche of sorts.  Last year, Boston made a huge decision to trade Kendrick Perkins for Jeff Green.  Up until this point, the move has backfired with Green out for the year thus leaving a glaring hole down low.  No question the losses of Perkins and Tony Allen has put more pressure on Boston’s aging veterans.  Another thing to consider is the Celtics are now in their second year without defensive coordinator Tom Thibodeau who has the Chicago Bulls playing the best defense in the league.  The trade rumors surrounding point guard Rajon Rondo certainly don’t help either.  Now, during this lockout season, their huge concerns with age and depth are magnified.  The Big Three of Ray Allen (36 years old), Paul Pierce (34), and Kevin Garnett (35), will be pressed into more minutes with their shallow roster.  Many expect this to perhaps be Read more

NCAA Basketball Betting Preview: UConn Huskies at Tennessee Volunteers

Connecticut at Tennessee

This will be a difficult task for the Vols who will be excited about playing this national power on their home floor but may be doing so at the wrong time. Unlike the other two non-conference underdogs, the situation doesn’t hold any advantage for Tennessee. Connecticut is looking forward to this quick turnaround so they can gain a bit of redemption after Wednesday’s night’s home upset loss to Cincinnati. Meanwhile, Tennessee is off an overtime heartbreaker at Georgia where they led inside of a minute during regulation and OT. Connecticut has sorely missed the scoring and defense of freshman guard Ryan Boatwright the past couple of games and overall their offense has really sputtered scoring 70 points just once in seven Big East games. The Boatwright saga continues to be unresolved (what a mess, mom dumps boyfriend who proceeds to tell NCAA everything he knows out of spite toward her) and it could be right up until game Read more

SEC Basketball Betting News and Notes 1-20-2012

The SEC race is shaping up as a two-team sprint after the first three weeks of conference play. Kentucky and Vanderbilt are the front runners with everyone else falling back into the pack. The Wildcats and Commodores could not be any more different, with Kentucky made up of all freshmen and sophomores while Vandy gets its production from upperclassmen.  Vanderbilt also does not get the respect from bettors and oddsmakers that Kentucky does, although that may change after the Commodores dominated Alabama in Tuscaloosa last night. I doubt that we will see Vandy getting five points on the road anymore unless it is at Kentucky.  On the other hand, Kentucky continues to struggle as road chalk in conference play, winning but failing to cover at Auburn and Tennessee.

I expect more of the same from Kentucky this season. Last year, they had a different group of freshmen, but they displayed the same characteristics on the road in SEC play. Everyone in the league gets up to play Kentucky, so they always get their opponents’ best effort. Freshmen are still freshmen, whether they are future first round picks or not, and I’ll be looking for chances to play against Read more

Saturday NCAA Basketball Betting Preview: Maryland Terrapins at Temple Owls

Maryland at Temple

Game being played at The Palestra at 11 am local (ESPNU) which could add to the flat spot for Temple. Off of a tough three game Atlantic-10 stretch in which the Owls won as a +9.5 point underdog at St. Louis, came up short three days later at Richmond and then edged out Big Five rival LaSalle, it would be understandable if they weren’t fully focused. There is word that Temple’s starting center Michael Eric will return for this contest which means there could be some non-cohesive minutes when he is on the floor. It would be a great spot to gradually work Eric back into the rotation. If Temple is unaffected by the situational spot here, they could win this game easily because the fundamentals are all in their favor. Temple guards Ramon Moore and Khalif Wyatt are almost impossible to defend man-to-man and point guard Juan Fernadez is as smooth a leader as you’ll find. Maryland’s 5-11 point machine Terrell Stoglin is carrying Read more

College Hoops Free Pick: Illinois Fighting Illini at Penn State Nittany Lions

Illinois at Penn State +3.5 O/U 123.5
Recommendation: Penn State


It has been quite a turnaround for Illinois of late. Less than a month ago, this team had the look of a .500 team in Big Ten play. But three straight close wins, including a 79-74 victory over Ohio State has the Illini atop the league standings. The win over the Buckeyes was particularly intriguing because Illinois got 43 points from Brandon Paul and as a team shot 60% from the floor and 61% from three. Prior to that, Illinois was hard-pressed to shoot 45% in game. Regardless, off a monster win, and in first place...and with Wisconsin on deck, the Illini take a trip to face 9-10, 1-5 Penn State. The Nittany Lions are not a good basketball team, but they've shown me enough to think they could give Illinois some trouble. PSU beat Purdue on this floor by 20 and battled Indiana to a six-point loss. Note that Illinois may be 15-3 but winning by margin hasn't come easy. They beat Cornell by four, Read more

College Basketball Betting: Analyzing close pointspread results Part II

01.19.2012     06:53 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Continuing our analysis of close pointspread results, there has been over 500 games thus far in January, and 40% of the games landed within five points of the betting line and 10% within one point of the line. If fact, 16 of the 18 games January 16-17 landed within five points of the betting line, and last Saturday it was a remarkable 48 of 99 games! As previously mentioned, regardless of your level of handicapping ability, long term results of these close ATS games should produce close to 50% ATS winners and losers. Yet we’ve been suffering though many close losses in January, now 7-16 on those close contests. We’ll continue to evaluate the results, stats and match-ups, and work to become even more proficient in pointspread prognosis in our never ending pursuit of profit. With that, the unfortunate results and negative random variance should subside.

Despite a solid base using good power ratings and adjusting those during the season, there is so much more to the puzzle and preparing your pointspread Read more

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Indiana exposed on defense in Big Ten play

Indiana -4.5 at Nebraska O/U 131

Despite dropping back-to-back games, Indiana isn't going into panic mode as it travels to face Nebraska tonight. Despite some impressive wins this season, the Hoosiers continue to be exposed on the defensive end of the floor. Through six games in league play, IU ranks 12th in points per possession allowed (1.12), 11th in effective FG% (54.9) and 10th in 2-point FG% defense (55.3). The numbers should improve with their next three games against offensive challenged Nebraska, Penn State and Wisconsin. But the Hoosiers have built a rep in the betting markets and if they want to continue to win games (and cover pointspreads) they'll need to improve on the stopping the opposition.

NFL Betting News: Sportsbooks in fear of a New York Giants Super Bowl run

01.17.2012     10:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Both offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks are facing some hefty payouts if the New York Giants continue to win.


The Giants right now are our biggest loser if they were to win the Super Bowl,” Kevin Bradley, Bovada sportsbook manager told the New York Post last week.

“Before the first Cowboys-Giants game (in Week 14), we actually had a big customer put down a large bet on the Giants to win both the NFC crown and the Super Bowl,” Chris Andrews, assistant director of Club Cal Neva Sports Books, said. “This customer took 60-1 for the Super Bowl and 30-1 for the conference."

“If the Giants win the Super Bowl, it will be a very nice score for the betting public,” says David Mason, spokesperson for Panama-based BetOnline.com. “It seems like no matter the sport, there is just so much public money coming out of the Big Apple, we are more often than not exposed a bit. This year is no different. Even a season like this one, when the Giants had to go down to the wire to even make the Read more
