Las Vegas sportsbooks rake in $19.6 million on Super Bowl XLVIII

02.04.2014     06:16 AM     Printer Friendly
Super Bowl XLVIII proved to be a profitable one for Las Vegas sportsbooks – and by profitable, we mean they absolutely crushed. A record $119.4 million was wagered and the books won $19.6 million – a ridiculous 16.5% return. It could have been worse had the first score of the game not been a safety.

Super Bowl XLVIII Gambling: Las Vegas sportsbooks clean up

02.03.2014     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Outside of the safety to open Super Bowl XLVIII, everything went right for the Las Vegas sportsbooks.


“The patrons went 0-2 — crappy game and lost money,” William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich said. “It was a good day for the books.”

“That safety was a torch job,” Bogdanovich said. “It’s not a fun way to start off the day, getting six figures in the hole.”

“We were down $62,000 on the first play of the game,” Vaccaro reported. “We got dinged pretty good on that one, and a few others as the game went on.”

Dana White makes Floyd Mayweather seem humble

01.29.2014     06:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The most Dana White thing ever.


"I'm like, are you serious? We're going to get killed," White said. "They don't have some kind of suitcase where they put the money in. ‘You just beat us, here you go.' That's really the attitude. They just stack it all up there and go ‘thanks, have a great night.' We've had trash bags, we got to the point we started bringing our own bags."

"It's the rush and excitement of all rushes," White said. "What would you do if you put a $50,000 hand up there and you have to split ’em? There's nights I beat the casinos for $5,000,000."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Bettors gear up for Super Bowl XLVIII

01.27.2014     08:14 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Super Bowl time again; the moral equivalent of Christmas Day for sports bettors. Yet many of the professional full time bettors that I know are rather disappointed with the proposition betting opportunities this year – 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. Bad numbers do NOT abound in 2014.

Let me start with the game itself. The Super Bowl itself has been an underdog bettor’s paradise in recent years.  The Ravens won the Super Bowl last year 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 Giants beat the favored 18-0 Patriots outright. The only favorite to win and cover in the last six Super Bowls was the Packers when they beat the Steelers in 2011.

The underdog trend in the Super Bowl goes back even further than that, with four consecutive dog covers from 2002 through 2005 Read more

Las Vegas casinos to start accepting Bitcoins

01.22.2014     07:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Starting today, Las Vegas's D Casino and Golden Gate Casino will accept Bitcoins. They won't be usable for gambling, however.


"I think we're going to see all kinds of merchants beginning to accept payments using Bitcoins the same way as in the 60s when people only took cash and checks with them, and then credits became popular," he says. "And then PayPal came along."

Cantor Gaming fortunate following record fine

Excellent article by John L. Smith on the recent record breaking fine handed down to Cantor Gaming.


Amaitis was so politically tone deaf that he apparently believed his bromance with Walters wouldn’t invite law enforcement scrutiny. But, in short order, the Las Vegas office of the IRS criminal division teamed up with casino regulatory investigators to pursue Walters for using intermediaries known as messenger bettors to place his wagers.

Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Is Seattle +3 on the horizon?

01.22.2014     07:08 AM     Printer Friendly
Given the initial push of money and current market price it is very likely at some point that +3 will be available for bettors interested in the Seattle Seahawks. There are a number of offscreen and Las Vegas sportsbooks with -2.5 and a few with -120 juice attached. We even found a good old fashion 3-110 at Bovada. Most consensus numbers have as high as 80% of the action on the Denver Broncos.
