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

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Creighton Bluejays vs. DePaul Blue Demons

03.11.2015     10:52 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Creighton -3.5 vs. DePaul O/U 135
Recommendation: Creighton


Near impossible to make a case for the Blue Demons right now as their play down the stretch led to an 0-7 straight up mark and a 1-4 ATS record in their final five games. The root cause of this spiral has been the offensive demise of top scorer Billy Garrett Jr. who has scored 8, 8, 7, and 2 points over his last four games while going 9-of-36, 25% from the field and 1-of-14, 7% from 3-point range. The potential loss of sophomore starting C Tommy Hamilton IV for this contest is also a concern. Without him and his 10 ppg and 5.2 rpg, DePaul was held to 48 points by Marquette in a 1- point loss. Conversely, things are on the upswing for Greg McDermott’s Creighton squad which came within an eyelash of knocking of conference kingpin Villanova and upper tier Xavier in their final two games. The offense has picked up tremendously for the Bluejays who after entering the season with five new starters have seemingly found a groove. They’ve scored 66 points or more in seven of their last eight games while getting 72+ in five of those. Their three point shooting has been the catalyst as Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Chicago White Sox

03.11.2015     08:12 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

After back-to-back losing seasons, the Chicago White Sox made a number of offseason acquisitions that put them in contention in an up-for-grabs AL Central.

Chicago White Sox
2014 W-L:
73-89
2014 O/U: 80-75-7
2014 Profits: -1.5
2015 O/U Wins: 81.5
2015 AL Cenral Odds: +240
Projected Starting Rotation: Chris Sale, Jeff Samardzija, Jose Quintana, John Danks, Hector Noesi
Key Departures: None
Key Additions: Melky Cabrera, Emilio Bonifacio, David Robertson, Jeff Samardzija, Adam LaRoche

Handicapper's Take: "The White Sox have lost 188 games over the past two seasons, disappointing both fans and backers  There’s at least modest upside with the South Siders heading into 2015 after management wrote a bunch of fat checks in the offseason to shore up their bullpen with David Robertson, Zack Duke and Dan Jennings, along with acquiring starter Jeff Samardzjia and veteran hitters Adam LaRoche and Melky Cabrera.  None of Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Atlanta Braves

03.09.2015     01:44 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

It’s been a long time since the Atlanta Braves weren’t at least in the conversation of NL East contenders but various offseason moves suggest 2015 to be that of rebuilding.

Atlanta Braves
2014 W-L:
79-83
2014 O/U: 63-86-13
2014 Profits: -18.0
2015 O/U Wins: 73.5
2015 NL East Odds: +3300
Projected Starting Rotation: Julio Teheran, Mike Minor, Shelby Miller, Alex Wood, Michael Foltynewicz
Key Departures: Evan Gattis, Justin Upton, David Carpenter
Key Additions: Jason Grilli, Nick Markakis

Handicapper’s Take: “It is very strange to see the Braves head into the season as a team in transition but that’s exactly what they are in 2015. The offseason overhaul in the outfield was all inclusive as all three positions will have a new starter. Gone is last season’s power laden but strikeout heavy group of Justin Upton, B.J. Upton, Evan Gattis, and Jason Heyward and in are ex-Orioles RF Nick Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Chicago Cubs

03.09.2015     06:26 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Epstein, Maddon, Lester...it's an AL East reunion! But while the Chicago Cubs have big names as the faces of the organization it's the young talent and smart roster moves that has oddsmakers and bettors projecting better things on the North Side.

Chicago Cubs
2014 W-L:
73-89
2014 O/U: 82-73-7
2014 Profits: -4.5
2015 O/U Wins: 82.5
2015 NL Central Odds: +320
Projected Starting Rotation: Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel, Kyle Hendricks, Travis Wood
Key Departures: Luis Valbuena
Key Additions: Manager Joe Maddon, Jon Lester, Dexter Fowler

Handicapper's Take: "Few teams have had endured as much failure from a betting perspective as the Chicago Cubs. Over the last 16 seasons they've averaged around -16 units a season. Since 2008, they’ve churned out exactly one profitable campaign. This year feels different as rather than going the quick-fix route, the organization took its time to rebuild the right way.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Memphis Tigers at UConn Huskies

03.05.2015     12:03 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Memphis at UConn -7 O/U 128
Recommendation: UConn


Memphis’s track record is very clear.  When the Tigers step down in class, their athleticism and talent can carry them to victory; hence their 7-2 ATS mark in games where they’ve been favored by 7.5 or more points.  But as an underdog on any floor, the Tigers are 1-7 ATS, consistently failing to step up against quality foes.

Josh Pastner ranks among the Top 10 winningest coaches in the history of college basketball for his first six years on the job, with 147 career victories since he took over for John Calipari as an untested 31 year old.  Yet despite all of that success, Pastner is in real danger of getting fired this offseason.  Despite their talent, Memphis hasn’t survived past the opening weekend of the Big Dance in his tenure.  The Tigers are just 5-20 SU in 25 tries against nationally ranked foes under Pastner.  And Memphis isn’t developing NBA talent under his tutelage, recruiting only two players who were drafted during his tenure, one of whom was Duke transfer Elliot Williams.

Memphis has already matched their highest Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who has what it takes to win the Big Dance Part I

03.02.2015     08:50 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams.   Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Last year, the Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

I write this article every year before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the tourney seedings are announced and before a single March Madness game has been played. And I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament four times in the last eight Read more
