Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling Part 2

10.13.2014     12:14 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote about the NFL’s origins: a league designed by gamblers for gamblers.  Heck, the games are still played at 1 pm on Sundays here in 2014, just as they were 80 years ago, because the old Blue Laws forced horse tracks to close on Sundays and the league’s original owners wanted to offer bettors a place to gamble after church every week.

This week’ I’ll be leaving the early days behind, picking up the story with the infamous 1958 Championship Game between the Colts and Giants – the game that really put the NFL on the map when it comes to national television exposure (and ratings).

The 1958 championship between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants has been called the "Greatest Game in NFL History."  The overtime thriller was nationally televised, and drew enormous ratings with forty million Americans tuning in, spurring the league’s incredible growth over the next decade.

MGM wants to offer on-site sports betting tablets

10.13.2014     11:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
MGM Resorts are looking into offering interactive betting tablets for patrons of their sportsbooks. It needs to approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission but the target date is the start of the 2015 football season.


“As we thought about that and started trying to grab them by the hair and yank them into the casino, we thought we’d go where they’re at. And where they’re at is mobile phones and sports books, lounges, nightclubs,” Mikulich said. “We thought we’d put some of these devices in those areas to try and engage with them and see what they actually like to do.”

NFL Gambling Preview: Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons

Chicago at Atlanta
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Atlanta -3 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Atlanta -3 O/U 53.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Atlanta -3.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

Here’s a game that is just as attractive to fantasy football owners as it is to the handicapping/betting community. Obvious big play aerial components on each side but Chicago has better ability to create balance with the running Matt Forte. Offensive line injuries plaguing each of these teams the past couple weeks but Atlanta starting left guard Justin Blalock did return to practice Wednesday in limited participation. His presence would provide a significant boost. The Bears could also receive some much needed help as center Roberto Garza is practicing again after missing the last three games. Left tackle Jermon Bushrod who missed last week remains a concern as his knee/ankle injuries may keep him out again.

This game is crucial Read more

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Arizona Wildcats

USC at Arizona
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
USC -2.5 O/U 63
CRIS Current: USC -2.5 O/U 68
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -3
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Under

The biggest thing I took away from the USC's game against Arizona State was that despite all the preseason talk about playing up-tempo the Trojans are actually looking to slow things down, especially in the second half of games when their defense is gassed due to a lack of depth. They've been suiting up a limited amount of players and the lack of depth was certainly exposed against the Sun Devils.

Defensively, with the exception of the somewhat flukey Boston College game (425 rushing yards allowed) and the two big plays from ASU late in the fourth quarter, USC's defense has been pretty good. They've gotten progressively better against the run holding Oregon State and Arizona State to 89 yards the last two weeks. That bodes Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling

10.06.2014     12:25 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among the staunchest opponents to legalized gambling in the United States.  Heck, the league famously refused an advertisement from the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Bureau for the Super Bowl, in an effort to appear like they are really anti-gaming. 

Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act attached to the Port Security Bill in October 2006.  The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that it’s enormously 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 deals that pumps nearly six billions 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 Read more

NFL Handicapping: Detroit's Johnson questionable vs. Buffalo

10.03.2014     01:44 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors are going to want to be aware of the injury status for Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson (ankle) is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Buffalo. With the line currently hovering around a key number, you can expect the Lions to go off -7 if he plays and -6.5 if he doesn't.


"That possibility always exists," Caldwell said. "Just kind of depends on how one progresses during the course of the week. There are some times that they move forward enough that they won't have any significant setbacks and other times you don't feel that way. You have to wait until the end of the week and react accordingly."

NFL Handicapping: Cleveland uses bye week to fix defense

10.03.2014     07:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Cleveland Browns said they used the bye week to shore up what has been a very porous defense thus far. The Browns are allowing 425.7 ypg (30th) and 6.4 ypp (31st). As a result, all three of their games have gone over the total. Last year, Cleveland ranked third in the league behind Cincinnati and Seattle with 4.8 ypp allowed. Sunday's opponent, Tennessee, is averaging only 15 ppg.


"Guys got to get more in tune with their playbook," he said. "We have to count on one and other. Everybody is trying to make a play, but you have to let other guys make plays and let your play come to you. You've got to just do your job. We got 11 dudes out there getting paid to do their job, so you've got to understand that and let guys make their plays."

Houston at Dallas
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Dallas -4 O/U 46
CRIS Current: Dallas -6 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Dallas -5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

The Cowboys physical offensive line is rapidly becoming a significant factor in their games and there’s an opportunity this week for them to again be a force. Even though the Texans possess a nasty defensive front, their strength is bit one sided with their pass rush capabilities exceeding those of their run stopping. Last week’s 4.2 yards per carry allowed to Buffalo was the best performance from Houston’s run defense this season. That is likely to be problematic for them this week when they face the Dallas OL and NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray. The new balance in the Dallas offense created by their rushing attack (165.0 rypg) has propelled them to an average of 30.3 ppg (1 defensive TD not included) and 384.3 typg during their Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos

Arizona at Denver
Sunday, 1 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Denver -8.5 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: Denver -7 O/U 48.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Denver -7.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

The defending AFC champion Broncos have yet to cover a pointspread in three tries this season; one of only three teams that are winless ATS (the Jets at 0-3-1 ATS and the Jaguars at 0-4 ATS are the other two).  But all three of the Broncos ATS defeats deserve at least a little bit of an asterisk attached to them.

In Week 1, Denver was in complete control throughout against the Colts, but Indy made a late rally thanks to a recovered onside kick to lose by only seven points as 7.5 point underdogs.  The following week, the Broncos were again comfortably in control against the Chiefs but a serious of penalties and ‘third and long’ conversions allowed KC to hang around.  The Broncos offense only had two drives Read more
