Pete Rose isn't moving out of Las Vegas anytime soon

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pete Rose continues to dominate life.


“I’m 75 years old. If I want to bet on a baseball game or football game legally at a casino, get my ticket, go home and watch the game and enjoy myself, who gives a damn?

“What am I supposed to do, live in a cocoon somewhere? I’m not taking my house money down there to gamble.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How to Handicap NFL Season Over/Under Wins Part I

05.02.2016     10:25 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Over the past decade, the NFL betting marketplace has evolved into a year round process. The very first Super Bowl odds for 2017 came out before the Broncos beat the Panthers in the Super Bowl this past February.  CG Technology posted lines for every NFL game through the first 16 weeks of the season prior to the draft.  Week 1 regular season lines are widely available right now.  And the NFL Season Win Total marketplace, while still a long way from maturity, has seen a handful of key shops, like the Westgate Superbook, post virgin numbers in recent days.

My process for handicapping the upcoming NFL season begins immediately after the draft.  This is the time of year to focus on those aforementioned season win totals.  My NFL prep work begins each spring with a thorough look back at last year’s results.

Why look back, you ask?  The answer, of course, is simple – because that’s where I find my very first edges when approaching the upcoming season.  If my base power rating heading into the offseason wasn’t wholly accurate, it results in inaccurate adjustments moving forward.  Part 1 of my process begins Read more

NFL Gambling News: Oakland Raiders to Las Vegas has financial backing

04.29.2016     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
So, this Oakland to Las Vegas thing has legs. Raiders owner Mark Davis is willing to pony up a half billion dollars to make it happen. And Roger Goodell is apparently leaving the decision in the hands of the owners.


"All of us have evolved a little bit on gambling. To me, where I cross the line is anything that can impact on the integrity of the game. If people think it is something that can influence the outcome of a game, we are absolutely opposed to that."

The NFL has long shunned Las Vegas, refusing its TV ads and telling players not to make appearances at casinos. But Davis said he believes owners will approve the move if the stadium is built.

“If we give them an offer they can’t refuse and that’s what we’re talking about now, I don’t see a problem,” Davis said.

Journalist resigns for not being able to write about Sheldon Adelson

04.27.2016     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Old fogey Sheldon Adelson owns the Las Vegas-Review Journal so it stands to reason that its journalists aren't allowed to write anything critical about the man -- even though 99.2 percent of what he does deserves criticism. LVRJ columnist John L. Smith recently resigned over this rule which was handed down by newly appointed editor Keith Moyer. Adelson and Smith have crossed paths in the past with the former suing the latter for libel back in 2005. Moyer claims the decision was his own and Adelson has no influence on what goes on in the newsroom. Umm, yeah.


"His disdain for the working press and its prickly processes is palpable — and easily illustrated by his well-known litigiousness," Smith wrote in the R-J. "I experienced this firsthand when Adelson sued me for a few lines I'd written in my 2005 book "Sharks in the Desert: The Founding Fathers and Current Kings of Las Vegas." At the time, my daughter Amelia was being treated for brain cancer. After an excruciating civil process, during which I was forced to

NBA Betting: Playoff series receive influx of intrigue following injuries to Curry and Paul

04.26.2016     09:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
What was originally on pace to be a snoozer first round has all of a sudden gotten really interesting. Golden State's Steph Curry (knee) is out for two weeks which would have made their second round matchup vs. the Los Angeles Clippers far more intriguing. Instead, the Warriors caught a break after Chris Paul broke his hand and will likely miss the rest of the postseason. And with the series tied 2-2, it's conceivable the Warriors could draw Portland. The Clippers are 3-5 SU, 3-4-1 ATS, and 7-1 O/U without Paul this season. Meanwhile, after sweeping Memphis is one of the easiest series in history, San Antonio has quietly moved to the slight favorite over Golden State to win the NBA Championship.

NFL Handicapping: Sportsbook adjusts odds following Brady suspension

04.26.2016     08:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sportsbooks have reacted to the news of Tom Brady's four-game suspension. New England is still priced among the favorites to win Super Bowl LI but Week 1's game at Arizona went from a pick 'em to +4.5 at CG Technology. Following Week 1, the Patriots play three consecutive home games (vs. Miami, vs. Houston, and vs. Buffalo) and are projected to be -3 favorites or higher in all three sans Brady.

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

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

NFL Gambling: Most think Raiders to Las Vegas a pipe dream

04.25.2016     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Various Las Vegas oddsmakers price the Raiders' chances of moving to Las Vegas. One said the Phillies have a better chance at winning the World Series while another went as low as a 2-1 underdog.


“I think we have more of a chance than we’ve ever had,” CG Technology sports books vice president Matthew Holt said. “We’re all cheering for it, but I’m not overly optimistic. We’re still an underdog, though a small underdog. I’ll say the odds are 2-1 against. I think (Davis) is serious to an extent.

“Talking about building a stadium and building it are different. And the NFL is so anti-gaming that until sports betting laws change, the league is going to be against it, so that’s another hurdle to clear. I have a lot more optimism that we’ll support a football team than a hockey team for 41 nights a year. I think the hockey team is going to be a struggle after the first year. It’s hard to get a regular fan base. Most of the warm-weather franchises have

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Betting markets don't believe in Thunder and Clippers

04.18.2016     10:20 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When it comes to the chase for the NBA Championship this year, Golden State has taken all the oxygen in the room. What little hype that has been able to escape the Warriors vortex has gravitated towards San Antonio, especially as the Spurs were chasing the NBA all-time record for most home wins in a season. 

Then Kobe went out and scored 60 on the final night of the regular season.  LeBron announced that he was getting off social media and immediately proceeded to go on a ten game tear to close out the regular season, leading the prohibitive favorite to come out of the East, Cleveland Cavaliers.  The national media spotlight just isn’t big enough to cover more stories than the easy ones that have fallen into their laps over the last few months.

And that leaves two teams that I think are legitimate title contenders sitting as relative afterthoughts in the national media spotlight and in the betting markets.  The Oklahoma City Thunder were priced in the 15-1 range to win the NBA Title entering the playoffs.  The Los Angeles Clippers were even higher, priced in the 30:1 range.  Even though the spotlight is shining brightly on the Read more

Another article on how sportsbooks are poised for a bloodbath if Leicester City wins the EPL. The Foxes currently have a win probability of around 90 percent.


“I have not seen anything close to this in a team sport as far as these odds actually cashing,” said Jeff Sherman, soccer oddsmaker at the Westgate Las Vegas. “I don’t know what you could even equate it to. It’s crazy. It’s unbelievable.”
