04.03.2015     08:11 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The betting handle for next month's Mayweather vs. Pacquiao continues to climb according to various Las Vegas oddsmakers. The price on Mayweather though continues to drop with less than -200 widely in Vegas and offshore.

"Public on the dog," said Art Manteris, sportsbook director of Station Casinos and a boxing expert. "Some of the best sports handicappers and guys I respect the most are on the favorite. I'm just not sure I agree with them this time."

Reid set to retire but still fighting for online gambling ban

04.03.2015     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
First, the good news. Nevada Sen. Harry Reid recently announced that he will retire at the end of his current term. Now the bad news. Said term runs to January 2017 and in the meantime, Reid appears hellbent on making sure online gambling doesn’t “poison” America.

“Well, we will see what the legislation does — we will see what the House does,” Reid said when asked if he supported Adelson’s push for a complete ban. “But I think, for the state of Nevada, online gaming is not the direction we should go.”

04.01.2015     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Every Tom, Dick, and Harry is reportedly betting the Cubs to win the World Series. Good for them.

"Every year, they bet the Cubs," Jeff Stoneback, assistant manager at MGM race and sports. "I could be their ace and you could be their No. 2 starter, and they'd still bet them."

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Bettor stands to win $1 million on Sparty

03.31.2015     07:53 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
This is pretty impressive. Not that someone made the bet but that a Las Vegas sportsbook actually took the action.

"In my nine years at this sportsbook, I never accepted a bet that could result in us paying $1 million," Miller said. "The most I've ever seen won here was a $100,000 parlay."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors gear up for Final Four

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

First weekend in May promises to be huge for Las Vegas

03.30.2015     07:20 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
If you're into sports betting and thinking about making a trip to Las Vegas the spring, the first weekend in May looks to be ideal. For starters you have both NBA and NHL playoffs in full swing. Then there's the Kentucky Derby. And to close out the evening one of the biggest fights in history with Mayweather vs. Pacquiao at the MGM Grand.

“Other than Super Bowl Sunday, the single day will be as big as we’ve written in years.  Look for May 2 to be approaching the Super Bowl handle on Super Bowl Sunday, and that’s saying a lot.”

Gamblers may have to give back winnings from casino gaffe

03.23.2015     08:00 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Here's a blast from the past. Back in 2012 a bunch of gamblers took advantage of a card shuffling blunder at Atlantic City's Golden Nugget Casino. The group of 14 gamblers won $1.5 million but are NOW being asked to return their winnings.

"By ordering the patrons to return the monies that were paid out by (the Golden Nugget) nearly three years after the game ended sends incredible conditional messages to the public: A win isn't necessarily a win, and that casinos will go after winning players who are without fault" if the casino or one of its agents were to blame, the gamblers said in a court filing asking the judge to reverse her February ruling in favor of the casino.

The insanity that is March Madness just provided bettors and fans alike with one of the more memorable opening weekends of NCAA Tournament action.  Now that the dust has settled, it’s time to take a look at the 16 teams still standing in the Big Dance from a pointspread perspective.  Which squads offer some semblance of betting value moving forward and which do not?  Read on to find out.

Two conferences stood out above the rest this past weekend.  The ACC sent a whopping five teams to the Sweet 16 out of six Big Dance entrants while going 11-1 SU.  But bettors didn’t make a dime supporting those ACC teams, who combined to go 5-7 ATS.  Duke was the lone ACC squad to notch a pair of pointspread covers.  Notre Dame was one of two teams (Kentucky being the other) to go 2-0 SU but 0-2 ATS.

The PAC-12, on the other hand, produced both SU and ATS success for bettors this past weekend.  The four PAC-12 entrants combined to go 7-1 SU, sending three teams to the Sweet 16.  Even more impressively, the conference combined to go 7-1 ATS; the lone non-cover coming in Arizona’s 21 point opening round win as 23 point Read more
