A perfect match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Submitted by Teddy Covers

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

College Basketball Handicapping: Results from Saturday's marquee matchups

With football out of the way, college basketball made sure it had a blockbuster schedule to capture the hearts and eyeballs of America’s sports fans. Yesterday’s string of marquee matchups definitely had a March Madness feel to it…which means it was a good early primer for those hoping to handicap the tournament in a couple of months.

I grabbed the key stats from the biggest games, with an eye toward starting to build profiles of teams and their tournament potential. Gut check games like we had today can be great indicators for March because strengths are neutralized, and weaknesses exposed. How you bully teams disappears when you can’t bully! Developments today will likely foreshadow issues that will come up in other big games…in the conference tournaments…and then once the Dance starts.

I’ll go in order of the poll rankings. But, because poll rankings can be off, I’ll also include the numbers coming into today from the most Read more

NBA Handicapping: Schedule has Houston Rockets running on fumes

You’re about to see what fatigue looks like statistically!

Last week we talked about the brutal schedule stretch that was coming up for the Houston Rockets. They had just defeated the Los Angeles Lakers. But, they were about to embark on a two-week odyssey that would see them play two different four-game-in-five-night stretches with the vast majority of action on the road.

We then suggested the team hit a wall in the fourth quarter in New Orleans the next night (when they were outscored 29-10 to blow a big lead). Then, we monitored developments through the week as the Rockets continued to lose. Tonight’s 105-95 loss at Indiana continued the story. And, I’ve come up with a way that may be the best illustration of what happens to the Rockets when they get tired (for other teams, it may show up in other categories).

First, a quick review of the gauntlet to this point…

Last Tuesday: Big Win over Lakers

Last Wednesday: Died in Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Louisville Cardinals win again with defense

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

It’s time for our semi-annual reminder that Rick Pitino is one of the best defensive coaches in college basketball. The media is doing a better job of recognizing this. But, the sentiment you’re hearing now is about how great THIS particular Louisville defense is…rather than how great Louisville is on defense every year.

Ken Pomeroy’s adjusted defensive ratings…which account for both tempo and quality of opposition…currently have Louisville as the #1 defense in the country. Just like Read more

We're only eight days into 2013 but so far it's been The Year of the Chalk. There have been 16 pro and college football games and 14 favorites covered based on the closing lines. There were a few that were close. Some bettors were able to win with South Carolina -3.5/-4/-4.5 against Michigan. Line shoppers cashed or at worst pushed with Wisconsin +7/+6.5 against Stanford (the game closed -4/-3.5). The only never-in-doubt underdog winner in 2013 was Louisville’s dismantling of Florida in the Sugar Bowl.

BCS Championship Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

BCS Championship - Miami, Fla.
Monday, January 7, 5:30 pm PT - ESPN
-Alabama- vs. -Notre Dame-
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -7.5 O/U 42
CRIS Current: Alabama -9.5 O/U 50
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -11.5

The history for teams trying to win a second consecutive BCS title game is not good. Florida State beat Virginia Tech to win the title following the 1999 season. The next year as they strove to repeat, the Seminoles lost 13-2 to Oklahoma as -10 favorites. Miami won a title in 2001, blowing out Nebraska. In ‘02, they were upset as -9 favorites against Ohio State. USC won a title in 2003, blowing out Oklahoma. In an attempt to repeat in 2004, the Trojans (-6.5) lost outright to Texas. That’s three repeat tries in the history of the BCS title game, and the defending champ (favored by a TD or more each time) lost outright each time.

I have nothing bad to write about Alabama here – they’re a great football team. Quarterback AJ McCarron had a remarkable season, throwing only three interceptions compared to 26 touchdown passes while Read more
