Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Sportsbooks cautious on prop bets due to weather

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sounds as if Las Vegas sportsbooks are going to sit on some of their Super Bowl XLVIII prop bets with the weather being such an unknown at this point.


“Everything, except for the basic stuff, is going to pushed back a day or two so we can get a much more clearer picture of what the weather is going to be like,” Jay Rood, sports book director at the MGM Mirage, said in a telephone interview from Las Vegas.

“We’ll see what the weather is looking like at that time and make our numbers based on that,” Sherman said by phone. “Every day we’ll just check it and if it looks like things are changing, we’ll make the necessary adjustment. We’d rather it be nice conditions and hopefully not have an effect on the game as far as causing more turnovers or if a quarterback is having trouble throwing the ball in windy conditions.”

Here's a link to all of Las Vegas' Super Bowl XLVIII parties courtesy of The Vegas Parlay. No offense to the Wynn, but if we're forking over 35K for the "Hail Mary Package" there had better be a meet-and-greet with the Queen of England as well as even money juice on all bets.

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Earlier this week reports came out the Cantor Gaming (now CG Technology) was being fined $2 million by the Gaming Control Board for its connection to the Mike Colbert/Pinnacle fiasco. Well, it turns out the fine is a little steeper than $2 million. How about $5.5 million – which is apparently a Nevada record. Also, if you want you can read the official "complaint", here's the PDF (a few highlights below).


69. The Indictment also alleges Paul Sexton and Michael Colbert acted in concert to launder money which represented the proceeds of criminal conduct.

70. Paul Sexton placed approximately 4,464 wagers with CANTOR GAMING from July of 201 1 through October 24, 201 2. The total amount of these wagers was approximately $22,000,000.00.

71 . Paul Sexton only placed wagers for Gadoon Kyrollos with CANTOR GAMING.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NBA Moneyburners!

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I took an in-depth look at five of the biggest moneymakers in the NBA through the first half of the season.  This week I’m going to focus on the teams at the other end of the spectrum – bottom feeders and disappointments.  I’ll break down the three biggest money-losers of the season thusfar.  And I’ll take a look at a ‘morpher’; a team playing significantly worse than current market projections.

I’ll start with the three teams that can be collectively called ‘the hopeless trio’.  It’s hard to make money betting on the very worst teams in any sport, and the NBA is certainly no exception.  And there’s no question who the very worst team in the NBA is this year, because they have both the worst SU record in the league (7-29) and the worst pointspread mark (12-24 ATS).  That team?  The Milwaukee Bucks!

Bucks head coach Larry Drew has never coached a bottom feeder before.  He walked into a good situation in Atlanta with the Hawks, who made the playoffs all three years that he was coaching the team.  Here in Milwaukee, the playoffs Read more

South Point's College Football Bowl Contest came down to BCS Championship

UPDATE

According to The Vegas Parlay, no one managed to go 16-for-16 in South Point's College Football Handicapping Contest. Picking games straight up, two contestants were 13-for-15 heading into the BCS Championship – one had Florida State and one had Auburn. The end result was a nice $50K payday.

Cantor Gaming hit with $2 million fine

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like Cantor Gaming is being hit with a $2 million fine for not knowing and/or doing anything about former employee Mike Colbert's actions.


The complaint said the company or Lee Amaitis, chief executive of the Las Vegas-based sports-betting unit, known until this week as Cantor Gaming, knew or should have known that one of their top executives was taking illegal bets. According to the complaint, failure to supervise an employee sufficiently to prevent criminal activity violates Nevada gaming regulations. Cantor Gaming's failure to do so "tends to reflect poorly on the reputation of gaming in the State of Nevada" and could hurt development of the industry, the complaint said.

Vegas poker player tips cab driver $10K for returning forgotten $300K

In keeping with today's Good Samaritan theme, here's another gem. An unnamed Las Vegas poker player left $300K in a cab and had it returned courtesy of the cab driver. He "tipped" the cabbie $10K for his nice deed.


"It's good enough, I really appreciate it," Gamboa said about the reward. "I wasn't expecting anything from the people I help. I never expect anything from the people I do good for, but I really appreciate it and that he appreciated what I'd done for him."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Playoff bound, but Super Bowl XLVIII bound?

Last year, heading into Week 17, Atlanta was the team to beat in the NFC, having already clinched homefield advantage with their 13-2 (at the time) record.  Washington was the hottest team in the conference and Green Bay was considered very live for the title, with Aaron Rodgers just one year removed from his Super Bowl ring.  In the AFC, the playoff were expected to be an eventual battle between the Patriots and Broncos, with the other four teams (Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston and Indy) largely considered to be fodder for the elites; non-factors.

What happened? A San Francisco-Baltimore Super Bowl, won by the Ravens; their third straight postseason win as an underdog.  Let’s not forget that Baltimore entered the playoffs in the midst of a late season 1-4 SU and ATS skid; a team that NOBODY expected to make noise in January and February.

In 2011, in the NFC, Green Bay was the unbeatable juggernaut with a 15-1 record as the defending champs, and the Saints weren’t far behind, just one year removed from a Drew Brees Super Bowl ring.  Meanwhile, the Giants were on the outside of the playoff picture, needing to beat Dallas just to get Read more
