College Football Gambling Preview: Boise State Broncos at Washington Huskies

08.28.2013     12:46 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boise State at Washington
Saturday, 7 pm PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
Washington -5.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Washington -3.5 O/U 53
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Washington -0.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Boise State

The Washington Huskies will play their first game in newly renovated Husky Stadium on Saturday night as they host the Boise State Broncos in a rematch of last year’s Las Vegas Bowl. Boise won that game 28-26 but failed to cover as 4.5-point favorites.

The Broncos will have quarterback Joe Southwick back for his second year as the starter. He started out slowly last year but gradually improved as the season progressed throwing for 2,730 yards on 66.8% completions and a 19-7 TD-INT ratio. He will have his top two receiving targets back in Matt Miller and Kirby Moore who combined for 102 receptions, more than 1,100 yards, and 6 TDs last season. They did lose their top Read more

NCAA Football Betting Trends: Washington-Boise State rematch

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boise State at Washington -3.5 O/U 52.5

Not a huge sample size but worth noting: Home favorites facing teams they lost to in a bowl game the previous season are 7-1 SU but only 1-6-1 ATS. The margins are those eight games were 10, 3, 10, 4, 5, 3, 1, and 13. Saturday's Washington-Boise State game fits those parameters. The Broncos beat the Huskies 28-26 in the Las Vegas Bowl. UW is currently a 3.5-point home favorite.

College Football Handicapping: Estimated Power Ratings as of 8/26/13

08.26.2013     02:08 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

We’ve seen some early week line movements for the debut of college football in 2013 this Thursday. I’ve tweaked our estimated Power Ratings from a few weeks ago as a result.

The numbers you see below assume 3 points for home field advantage. I create a couplet for each game based on the market spread adjusted for home field (or, left alone in the case of neutral site games), then try to place that couplet on “the big board” scale. So…if a team is a 12-point favorite on a neutral field, I make sure those teams are 12 points apart…then try to figure out where they would logically sit in the big picture based on last year’s final numbers…offseason changes…early numbers in the “game of the year” stuff in Vegas for upcoming matchups…etc. If a team is a 12-point favorite at home, then I make sure those teams are 9 points apart.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Identifying College Football ATS Outliers

08.26.2013     07:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
College football season kicks off on Thursday Night.  By Labor Day, we’ll have seen 88 teams play other FBS opponents and another 31 teams play FCS foes, available for betting at many top books on the extra games board.  How important are those Week 1 results when we project forward?  What about Week 2 and Week 3? Read on to find out!

Twenty-six college football teams were pointspread outliers last year.  Twelve squads hit 75% or better ATS.  Fourteen squads hit 25% or worse for the full season.  This falls within recent historical patterns – in every recent season, 20-25% of the teams are strong “bet on” or “bet against” squads.  If we broaden the base to 67% ATS wins or losses for the full season, it’s not unusual to see 35-40% of the teams in college football fall into those two categories.

So how do we identify these teams?  Most importantly, how do we identify them early in the season, before September is through, so we can take advantage of their success or ineptitude repeatedly before the market starts to catch up?

The top pointspread teams of 2012 were Fresno State, Read more

College Football Handicapping: The impact returning starters has on the betting markets

08.22.2013     06:57 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Yesterday I talked about Phil Steele's impact on the betting markets. Today I'll discuss another factor that influences early season games and that's returning starters. Who is coming back is probably to first thing bettors look at when evaluating a team during the summer. And based on my experience, teams with "a lot" of returning starters get a lot more love in the betting markets than those with only "a few” returning starters. Before I begin note that there are many different definitions of “returning starters” but for the sake of argument, we'll use Phil Steele as our reference point since his publication is such a common fixture among the betting community. Keep in a mind, A LOT can happen over the course of three months and I've seen multiple examples where returning starter numbers in June were a lot different than in September.

I used the very arbitrary numbers of 17 or more and 10 or less when breaking down our returning starter "extremes." That gives us 31 Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC Preseason News and Notes

08.19.2013     08:13 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. During August, Teddy records every game, then watches every first half on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps simply don’t have. This week: AFC tidbits from the first two weeks of the preseason.

Cincinnati Bengals – Boy this team looks impressive; a potential Super Bowl sleeper in a conference that has no clear no. 3 behind Denver and New England to start the season. This was a top 10 defense last year, and looks even better this year, positively loaded with the addition of Super Bowl winner James Harrison from Pittsburgh. Harrison was run blitzing and making plays in the backfield, now the inside linebacker in a 4-3, a new position. Lots of blitzing, worth noting in preseason! The position battles here aren’t huge ones – a battle for the starting center job (Kyle Cook is the favorite to win it) and battles for the second and third receiver after AJ Green. No three-and-outs while Andy Dalton was on the field; he did a great job audibling out of bad situational play calls

Longtime Las Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro recently left William Hill for a position at South Point. Vaccaro will be in charge of promoting SP's new mobile phone app.


“It’s obviously old school. It’s a very short conversation & a handshake,” asserted Vaccaro, who immediately left his position as director of public relations for William Hill sports books.

NFL Preseason Handicapping: Betting markets react to OVER the total trend

08.12.2013     12:02 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
My numbers have the Overs 11-5-1 through the first 17 preseason games (counting Raiders-Cowboys as a push, although you could make the case that was an Over as well).

No 35.5's out there for Week 2 (the prevailing Week 1 number), not a single total at the opener below 38, with 13 of the 16 games totaled at 40 or higher.

And we're already seeing HEAVY early steam on one total: the Bills- Vikings Over, bet up from 40 to 43 this morning; the only line move of any consequence off the CRIS/Jazz/5Dimes openers. Vegas hasn't posted Week 2 preseason numbers...yet.

Went back and looked at NFLX Week 2 last year. 16 games, 12 were totaled at 38 or lower and only two were totaled higher than 40. Overs went 12-3-1 for the week (I graded Detroit-Baltimore as a push).

Clearly, the markets are noticing the trend.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: The evolution of football's opening line

08.12.2013     07:59 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the modern era of sports betting, what is exactly is The Opening Line?  It’s most assuredly not a meaningless question.  There are many bettors who consider the opening number as an important part of their handicap. 

Long term winning bettors don’t bet bad numbers – if they miss their targeted strike price, they’ll leave the game alone.  So the opening number – or what they consider to be the opening number – holds significant weight in future wagering decisions.

When I first moved to Vegas in the late 90’s, there was no debate.  Joe Lupo, Bob Scucci, Doug Castanada and the rest of the bookmakers at the Stardust hung the very first numbers, worldwide.  When those opening numbers were first posted, the ‘Dust held a lottery to determine the order of who could bet first, second, third and on down the line.  Bettors coveted a place at or near the front of that line – it legitimately made a difference.

The Sunday Night lottery at the Stardust during football season was a spectacle to behold.  The book was packed; the energy electric in anticipation of those Read more

Teddy Covers gives us the scoop on the 'official' College Football Week 1 opening numbers

08.07.2013     01:37 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Yesterday was the first meeting of the season for the legendary 'Tuesday Group' of professional bettors here in Las Vegas. We had a very spirited debate about what the 'official' college football Week 1 opening numbers actually are/were.

With different books posting very different numbers at different times, we decided a 'consensus' opening line was a better choice than using any one book. The initial variance is gone, and the spreads as of RIGHT NOW on 8/7 should be considered the 'market openers'. Track moves from today, not before!

Thursday, 8/29:

SOUTH CAROLINA -10.5 North Carolina
MINNESOTA -14 Unlv
BOWLING GREEN -4 Tulsa
UCF -21.5 Akron
UTAH -3 Utah St
Ole Miss -3 VANDERBILT
Fresno -10 Rutgers
Usc -21.5 HAWAII

Friday, 8/30:

MICHIGAN ST -26.5 Western Michigan
MIAMI-FL -32.5 Florida Atlantic
Texas Tech -6 SMU

Saturday, 8/31:

WISCONSIN -45 Umass
MICHIGAN -31.5 Central Michigan
OHIO ST -36 Buffalo
NC ST -13.5 Louisiana Tech
MARYLAND -19.5 Florida International
IOWA -3 Northern Illinois
NOTRE DAME -29.5 Temple
Byu -3 Read more
