Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors gear up for Final Four

03.30.2015     08:17 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The dust has settled from the madness that is March, with only four teams still standing in the NCAA Tournament.  And frankly, since the insanity of that opening Thursday morning when top seeds were falling like flies (Baylor, Iowa State, SMU), this tournament has not seen a bevy of upsets. 

In fact, the Vegas favorite advanced in 48 of the last 54 Big Dance games (48-6 SU, not ATS) since midday on the opening day of the tourney.  For only the second time this century, three #1 seeds reached the Final Four.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report I’m going to try to answer the question that everybody is asking: can anybody beat Kentucky; winners of 38 consecutive ballgames since the start of the season.

Since Kentucky is the most hyped team in recent memory, I’ll start with the Wildcats first.  Yes, this team won the title in 2012, going 4-2 ATS in the process during the Big Dance.  Yes, they reached the championship game last year; an undervalued commodity in March as they covered all four pointspreads on the way to the Final Four.  

But this year’s Kentucky team has simply gotten too much Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens

Tampa Bay +105 at Montreal O/U 5
Recommendation: Tampa Bay


The Tampa Bay Lightning travel to Montreal tonight and they currently trail the Canadians by three points in the Eastern Conference standings.  This is a very important game in ultimately deciding who will earn home ice in the Eastern Conference playoffs.  The Lightning have dominated the Canadiens this season by winning all four meetings by a combined score of 16-5 including a 4-2 win on their home ice two weeks ago. In a tight checking, low scoring game like we’re likely to see this evening, I am fully confident in backing the more psychical team as a slight underdog. Tampa Bay matches up very well offensively against Montreal’s stingy defense.  And after getting blanked 4-0 at Detroit on Saturday, the Lightning are in prime bounce-back mode. "We always respond after games like (Saturday's 4-0 loss to the Red Wings)," veteran wing Ryan Callahan said. "We have the character in here to do that. We know who's coming up next, and that's a pretty big one, too. So it's going to be easy to get up for that one." Should be a great game and one that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Xavier Musketeers vs. Arizona Wildcats

Xavier vs. Arizona -10.5 O/U 135.5
Recommendation: Arizona


My power ratings show Arizona right there with Duke as the second best team in the country.  The Wildcats are playing in a friendly, familiar venue in LA; certain to enjoy significant crowd support compared to Xavier in this game, to go along with their short travel time.  Their coach, Sean Miller, is arguably the best coach in college basketball never to reach the Final Four.  This team is a juggernaut, plain and simple, and the PAC 12’s 7-1 ATS mark over the opening weekend of the Big Dance speaks volumes about how undervalued this conference is on the national stage.

Xavier is no juggernaut.  The Big East really wasn’t very good this year – it was Villanova and then everybody else.  The Musketeers are tough and well coached, but they finished sixth in this mediocre conference with a 9-9 record in Big East play.  They are here only because of the ‘luck of the draw’; facing an Ole Miss team off extensive travel on short rest in the first round, followed by upstart #14 seed Georgia State in the Round of 32.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: San Diego Padres

03.25.2015     02:43 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

It's time to win in San Diego -- or at least score some more runs. The Padres brought in some big-name bats as well as ace James Shields which makes them instant contenders in the NL West.

San Diego Padres
2014 W-L:
77-85
2014 O/U: 61-95
2014 Profits: -9
2015 O/U Wins: 84.5
2015 NL West Odds: +375
Projected Starting Rotation: James Shields, Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross, Odrisamer Despaigne
Key Departures: Seth Smith
Key Additions: James Shields, Will Myers, Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, Derek Norris, Will Middlebrooks

Handicapper's Take: "After years of trying to do it with pitching and defense, the Padres committed to offense in a big way by completely overhauling their roster during the offseason. They also spent a ton of money to do so. Derek Norris, Will Middlebrooks, Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, and Justin Upton by default means a lot more runs -- even at Petco Park. And that should in turn mean more wins for a franchise Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: New York Yankees

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

New York's roster says it wants to win now but that's a tall order given the team's aging personnel. The pitching staff kept this team afloat in 2014 and will be asked to do so again.

New York Yankees
2014 W-L:
84-78
2014 O/U: 68-90-4
2014 Profits: -2.4
2015 O/U Wins: 81.5
2015 AL East Odds: +450
Projected Starting Rotation: Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi, Chris Capuano
Key Departures: Ichiro Suzuki, Martin Prado, David Robertson, Derek Jeter
Key Additions: Nathan Eovaldi, Andrew Miller

Handicapper's Take: "Is it 2008? It feels that way when you glance through the Yankees' aging roster. Nearly their entire lineup is comprised of players north of 30 years old -- some of which aren't even close to being above average major league hitters. Last season, New York was one of the strongest 'under' teams in baseball as it struggled to score runs on a consistent basis. With much of last year's Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Sweet Sixteen Betting Preview

03.23.2015     07:48 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The insanity that is March Madness just provided bettors and fans alike with one of the more memorable opening weekends of NCAA Tournament action.  Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to take a look at the 16 teams still standing in the Big Dance from a pointspread perspective.  Which squads offer some semblance of betting value moving forward and which do not?  Read on to find out.

Two conferences stood out above the rest this past weekend.  The ACC sent a whopping five teams to the Sweet 16 out of six Big Dance entrants while going 11-1 SU.  But bettors didn’t make a dime supporting those ACC teams, who combined to go 5-7 ATS.  Duke was the lone ACC squad to notch a pair of pointspread covers.  Notre Dame was one of two teams (Kentucky being the other) to go 2-0 SU but 0-2 ATS.

The PAC-12, on the other hand, produced both SU and ATS success for bettors this past weekend.  The four PAC-12 entrants combined to go 7-1 SU, sending three teams to the Sweet 16.  Even more impressively, the conference combined to go 7-1 ATS; the lone non-cover coming in Arizona’s 21 point opening round win as 23 point Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Los Angeles Dodgers

03.17.2015     02:34 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

With the highest payroll in baseball, the Los Angeles Dodgers are going all in on the 2015 season.

Los Angeles Dodgers
2014 W-L:
94-68
2014 O/U: 83-70-9
2014 Profits: +10
2015 O/U Wins: 92.5
2015 NL West Odds: -225
Projected Starting Rotation: Clayton Kershaw, Zack Greinke, Hyun-Jin Ryu, Brandon McCarthy, Brett Anderson
Key Departures: Matt Kemp, Dee Gordon, Hanley Ramirez
Key Additions: Brandon McCarthy, Jimmy Rollins, Howie Kendrick

Handicapper’s Take: “The Dodgers are the favorites in the NL West after a 94-win season. Gone are Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp and Dee Gordon and entering are veterans Jimmy Rollins and Howie Kendrick to help shore up the middle infield. The lineup has the capability of being solid with a Rollins, Carl Crawford, Yasiel Puig, Adrian Gonzalez and Kendrick top of the order but the strength of this team should be their starting pitching with the return of their very strong trio of Clayton Kershaw, Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Washington Nationals

03.16.2015     12:58 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

With arguably the best starting rotation in baseball, expectations are sky-high (and so will their prices) for the Washington Nationals.

Washington Nationals
2014 W-L:
96-66
2014 O/U: 77-72-13
2014 Profits: +10.6
2015 O/U Wins: 93.5
2015 NL East Odds: -475
Projected Starting Rotation: Stephen Strasburg, Max Scherzer, Jordan Zimmermann, Doug Fister, Gio Gonzalez
Key Departures: Tyler Clippard, Adam LaRoche
Key Additions: Max Scherzer, Yunel Escobar

Handicapper’s Take: “Washington heads into this year as the class of the National League East. And last month’s free agent acquisition of Max Scherzer sealed their position as favorites to win the NL pennant. Their 93.5 season over/under win total is the league's’ highest and could very easily be eclipsed if everything goes right. The positives are obvious and plenty as Washington owns seven legitimate starters for a five-man rotation, they return every piece of last Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Top Ten NCAA Tournament Betting Tips

03.16.2015     10:37 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Times have changed.  Betting strategies for March Madness are not a static entity.  Betting markets, like all other markets, evolve over time.  Concepts that worked ten years ago don’t necessarily work as well in 2015. 

I first wrote a Top 10 Tournament Betting Tips piece for Playboy Magazine back in 2002.  I’ve updated it a couple of times over the years, but it definitely needed a thorough rewriting for the modern era.  Even with the edits, there are no surprises here – veteran bettors know this stuff already, but it never hurts to think about these concepts again as the Big Dance begins. 

1.) Look to fade teams that looked great last weekend.
First of all, this is a value based enterprise.  The single best betting strategy for any sport is similar to the best stock picking strategy or the best real estate investment strategy – buy low, sell high.  And it’s hard to buy low with teams that looked great in their conference tournaments.

There’s no such thing as carrying over momentum from conference tournament weekend to the Big Read more
