Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: New England Patriots remain hottest bet in Las Vegas

01.28.2015     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been well documented that the early money for Super Bowl XLXI has come in on the New England Patriots. But exactly how much you ask? According to Las Vegas' Westgate, the ratio is a startling 3.5-to-1. That said, less than 20% of projected handle is currently in play.


"It hasn't slowed people down as far as liking the Patriots -- they don't care," head oddsmaker Ed Salmons said. "That outside noise, trying to predict how it's going to affect a team, is impossible. Unless you're inside that locker room, you don't know."

Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Patriots likes to go off as less than field goal favorites

Oddsmakers aren't projecting enough money to push the New England Patriots to a 3-point favorite for Super Bowl XLIX. We've seen as high as -1.5 but nearly all of Las Vegas is currently offering -1 while pick 'em remains the most common offshore price.

Super Bowl XLIX Gambling: Offshore still rules the roost when it comes to prop bets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you're looking to bet some of the crazy props associated with the Super Bowl, you'll have to do so offshore. Las Vegas is still limited in what they can allow; basically anything not associated with the box score is a no-no with the exception of the coin flip. Meanwhile, most offshore/offscreen sportsbooks offers the likes of Bill Belichick's hoodie color as well as the Nielsen TV Rating.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors ready for Super Bowl XLIX

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Super Bowl time again.  I use this line every year because it’s true – this IS the moral equivalent of Christmas Day for many sports bettors.  Yet, much like last year, many of the professional full time bettors that I know are rather disappointed with the proposition betting opportunities for Super Bowl XLIX – there’s simply not much low hanging fruit.  The biggest and best sportsbooks (market leaders both here in Vegas and offshore) have learned from previous mistakes.  Weak numbers do NOT abound in 2015.

Let me start with the game itself.  The Super Bowl itself has been an underdog bettor’s paradise in recent years.   The Seahawks were underdogs at kickoff last year in their blowout win over the Broncos. The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2013, as the underdog, beating the favored 49ers.  The Giants won the year before as an underdog; knocking off the Patriots.  In 2010, the Saints won straight up as a dog over Peyton Manning and the Colts.  In 2009, the Cardinals covered the spread in a tight loss to the Steelers.  In 2008, the Gia nts beat the favored 18-0 Patriots Read more

Season ticket sales key if NHL wants to set up shop in Las Vegas

01.20.2015     01:19 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NHL is considering an expansion team in Las Vegas but before they pull the trigger, the biggest question remains will there be enough interest? Obviously they’ll draw from the tourist crowd but local interest, particularly that of season ticket holders, will be paramount.


"I've never understood who the Vegas market is," said former Calgary Flames general manager Craig Button. "People live there (because they work there). I don't know any Las Vegans or whatever you call them. I don't know if you can have a professional sports team there if you don't know who your market is."

"If we sell 10,000 season tickets, I believe we will go a long ways to getting the franchise," Foley told USA TODAY Sports. "Ten thousand is our number."

A perfect match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous 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 deal that pumps more than three billion 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. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more
