NFL Preseason Gambling: Belichick reiterates Week 3 just another preseason game

08.24.2016     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick shot down the idea that Week 3's "dress rehearsal" resembles anything close to the regular season. Historically, the Patriots are 3-5 SU and 2-6 ATS over the last eight seasons in Week 3. Two of those wins and covers came the last two years against the Carolina Panthers -- the same opponent New England plays Friday. The Panthers are currently -3.5 home favorites.

2015: SU and ATS win vs. Carolina
2014: SU and ATS win vs. Carolina
2013: SU and ATS loss vs. Detroit
2012: SU and ATS loss vs. Tampa Bay
2011: SU and ATS loss vs. Detroit
2010: SU and ATS loss vs. St. Louis
2009: SU win, ATS loss vs. Washington
2008: SU and ATS loss vs. Philadelphia


"I don't. I don't know what that means," Belichick said. "In terms of playing time it might be a little different, but in terms of game-planning and strategy, what we see in the regular season compared to what we see the in third preseason game I don't even think you're in the

NFL Gambling News: Patriots remain AFC and Super Bowl favs despite Brady's supension

07.19.2016     07:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
While Tom Brady's 4-game suspension will have an impact on the pointspreads of New England's games, it hasn't caused much of a stir in the futures market. According to 5Dimes, the Patriots remain the betting favorite to win the AFC East (-198), AFC (+365), and Super Bowl 51 (+690). Week 1's matchup at Arizona was originally lined as a pick 'em but CRIS reopened with the Cardinals a -5.5 favorite. Following Week 1, New England will play three consecutive home games vs. Miami, Houston, and Buffalo.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early look at the AFC East

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Our NFL Team Previews for the upcoming campaign continues.  This week, I’ll be focusing on the AFC East, and next week I’ll conclude the series with a look at four squads from the NFC East.  Teams are listed in alphabetical order within their division.

We'll start with the Buffalo Bills who are lined at 8 wins for the upcoming season.  Buffalo owns the longest playoff drought in the NFL; now at 16 seasons and counting.  The Bills have at least returned to relevance over the past two seasons, winning nine games in 2014, followed by an 8-8 campaign last year.

Rex Ryan is set to begin his second year on the job.  Rex’s brother, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, coached one of the worst defenses in NFL history in New Orleans last year.  Now Ryan takes over a defense that plummeted from a no. 4 yardage ranking in 2014 to 19th in 2015 as sacks dropped from 54 to 21.  Top two draft choices Shaq Lawson (Clemson), Reggie Ragland (Alabama) are expected to contribute in the sacks department immediately.

Offensive coordinator Greg Roman crafted a Super Bowl caliber offense Read more

Sportsbooks have reacted to the news of Tom Brady's four-game suspension. New England is still priced among the favorites to win Super Bowl LI but Week 1's game at Arizona went from a pick 'em to +4.5 at CG Technology. Following Week 1, the Patriots play three consecutive home games (vs. Miami, vs. Houston, and vs. Buffalo) and are projected to be -3 favorites or higher in all three sans Brady.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early primer on betting Super Bowl 50

The Super Bowl 50 matchup is set.   In the end, second best didn’t cut it.  The team with the very best defense in the NFL this season – Denver – won a pair of tight home playoff games against banged up foes to return to the big game for the second time in three seasons.  The Broncos are set to face the team with the very best quarterback in the NFL this season – Carolina, with Cam Newton behind center; a Panthers team that finished with the best record in the league. 

The best quarterback vs. the best defense!  We saw this two years ago, when Peyton Manning set records with his play, but Manning tailed off down the stretch and the Seattle Seahawks elite defense controlled the flow right from the get-go in the biggest Super Bowl Blowout of the 21st century.

The irony here, of course, is that two years ago, Denver was here due to Peyton Manning, and they lost the Super Bowl to the league’s best defensive team.  Only two years later, Denver is here because THEY have the best defense in the NFL, facing off against an emerging yet elite dual threat quarterback.  That defense didn’t perform Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Conference Championship Preview

March Madness has a lock on the Final Four terminology, but we’re down to the final four teams standing in the NFL Playoffs following a wild weekend of football.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll take a look at how the Final Four teams still standing this NFL season survived, and what their realistic chances of Super Bowl success are moving forward into the Conference Championship Games this coming weekend.

Denver was outgained by more than two full yards per PLAY against the Steelers.  It was not vintage Peyton Manning, to put it mildly: 37 pass attempts for 215 yards, with only two passes all afternoon gaining more than 15 yards.  If you were watching the game, you already know how many missed connections that Manning had with his receivers – no shortage of inaccurate passes and dropped balls.  With the exception of one explosive 34-yard run by CJ Anderson, Denver’s running game wasn’t much better.  Anderson and Ronnie Hillman’s other 30 carries combined for just 76 yards.

But the Broncos avoided mistakes, playing turnover free football; the first time as a starter all season in which Manning Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Evaluating the health of the remaining eight NFL playoff teams

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wild Card weekend is in the rear view mirror, with all four road teams emerging victorious on the opening weekend of the NFL Playoffs.  One game was a blowout, with the Chiefs destroying the Texans.  Two games were coin flips that came down to last second field goals, with the Steelers making their field goal while the Vikings missed theirs, allowing Seattle to survive and advance.  And the fourth game was a close contest that turned into a blowout by the end of the fourth quarter thanks to a performance from Green Bay that was as good as anything that we’ve seen from the Packers since October.

The mainstream media will focus on the quarterbacks and the head coaches, because that’s what the mainstream media does.  In the mainstream world, Andy Reid; noted for a decade worth of playoff failures in Philadelphia, is now a genius because his team is on an 11-game winning streak.  Aaron Rodgers, off the worst statistical season of his career, is now back to his elite self; thanks to one playoff win against a banged up defense. 

Serious bettors know one thing about the NFL Playoffs – health matters!  Do the Read more
