College Football Betting Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Northwestern Wildcats

10.02.2015     07:53 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota at Northwestern
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten
CRIS Opener:
Northwestern -6 O/U 39.5
CRIS Current: Northwestern -3.5 O/U 41
Recommendation: Northwestern

All the technical trends point towards Minnesota in this ballgame.  The Gophers have been great underdogs in the Jerry Kill era; 10-2 ATS in their last dozen tries, the only two losses coming at TCU last year (in a game where Minnesota’s offensive line was riddled with injuries) and their bowl game against SEC East champs Missouri – two teams that are better than Northwestern.  The Gophers have covered on each of their last NINE visits to Evanston.  Meanwhile, Northwestern has been a pointspread disaster as home chalk, just 2-9 against the number in their last eleven tries.  No surprise, then, that the early money has poured in on Minnesota, driving the NW -6 opener down to the current four point spread.

But there’s one big problem blindly betting trends and angles like the ones presented above – they don’t factor in anything other than past pointspread history.  And whatever Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: National League Preview

04.13.2015     07:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I wrote a team-by-team overview of the 15 American League squads.  This week, I’ll shift my focus to the National League, breaking down each team from a Las Vegas perspective.  Teams are listed in alphabetical order, by division.

A week ago, the Atlanta Braves were viewed as likely bottom feeders following a massive offseason rebuild that resulted in only six players from opening day last year returning on opening day in 2015; lined in the same range as teams like Arizona, Colorado and Minnesota.  One week later and the market view of Atlanta has changed at least somewhat thanks to a 5-1 record with the best run differential in the NL.  Julio Teheran, Shelby Miller and Alex Wood all hav top-of-the-rotation stuff, but it’s hard to picture this anemic lineup continuing to deliver steady run support.

The Miami Marlins hung around in the wild card race into the dog days of August last year before Giancarlo Stanton’s Read more

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: Minnesota Wild at Vancouver Canucks

Minnesota +105 at Vancouver O/U 5
Recommendation: Minnesota


Last Monday I gave out a free play on the Minnesota Wild against the Vancouver Canucks which won in convincing fashion, 5-3.  Nothing has significantly changed in the last seven days to suggest this game will be any different.  In fact the Minnesota Wild continue to plow through the Western Conference en route to grabbing a playoff spot.  The Wild have now gone 8-0-1 in their last nine games.  Their defense and goaltending has been lights out and exactly what you think of when you picture a tough Minnesota team.  Since being traded from Arizona in mid-January, goaltender Devan Dubnyk has revitalized his career with a 10-1-1 record, 1.60 GAA, and four shutouts.  This matchup is exactly the same as last week and the fact of the matter is Vancouver simply does not match up well against Minnesota.  Vancouver being on home ice changes nothing except that we get an underdog price on the Wild.  This is a team that is healthy and playing with a ton of confidence.  There is no reason to hop off the train now, especially against a Canucks team that has lost Read more

Vancouver at Minnesota -145 O/U 5
Recommendation: Minnesota


The Minnesota Wild have strung together five straight wins and are making a push at just the right time.  They’ve gotten back to tough defensive hockey during this stretch having surrendered just three goals in those five wins. Even more impressive is the 26.6 shots per game allowed. All told, the Wild shutout three of those five opponents.  Tonight they face the Vancouver Canucks in what should be another stepping stone for this talented group.  Just last week they defeated the Canucks 4-2.  Now on their home ice the Wild look to dictate that play again as they've won five of the last six meetings between these two teams.  Vancouver is coming off of a dominating 5-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night.  As strong as the Canucks look, they just don't match up well against the Wild.  Minnesota has killed 12 straight power plays and they will keep the dangerous Sedin brothers at bay tonight on the man advantage.  All signs point towards a strong push here from Minnesota.  When all pistons are firing on this team they are hard to Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Nebraska Cornhuskers

11.21.2014     09:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota at Nebraska
Saturday, 9am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -10.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Nebraska -10 O/U 56
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Nebraska -9
Rob Veno’s Recommendation: Over

Pair of significant setbacks last week for each of these teams makes this a mental toughness test. Nebraska’s humiliating loss at Wisconsin where Badgers went on an incredible 56-7 run has many again questioning their defense and Bo Pelini. A convincing bounce back effort is mandatory for the Cornhuskers internally and also to try and restore their reputation outside the locker room.

Despite their home loss to Ohio State last Saturday, the Golden Gophers enter this contest with some confidence after losing control of the OSU game in the second half but then rallying to make things close at the end. It’s a long shot, but Minnesota could still win the Big Ten West by finishing with Read more

NHL player linked to illegal sports betting ring

Current Minnesota Wild winger Thomas Vanek has been linked to an illegal sports betting operation.


That payment — apparently a salary check that was endorsed and handed over to cover wagers — was made at the same time hockey superstar Thomas Vanek played for the Islanders, said local attorney James Wolford.

College Football Betting Preview: UNLV Rebels at Arizona Wildcats

UNLV at Arizona
Friday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Arizona -24 O/U 60.5
CRIS Current: Arizona -23.5 O/U 60
Teddy's Recommendation: Arizona

Arizona came to Las Vegas and thoroughly whipped the Rebels last year; a 58-13 blowout that was every bit as lopsided on the field as the final score would suggest. The Wildcats held an enormous team speed advantage to go along with their size edge, creating one big play TD after the next.

UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck following the game in which UNLV trailed by 39 at halftime: “Congratulations to Arizona for coming in and beating the hell out of us. We’ve got to flush this game and move on to the next one because there are no positives.”  The loss actually sparked the UNLV season, a season that they turned around immediately following that defeat with four wins in their next four games, culminating in the Rebels first bowl bid since 2000.
