"It's as big as any college football game that I can remember," Bogdanovich, a 28-year Vegas veteran, said of the handle.

"It'll be easily as big as one of these games we've got going on today," MGM vice president of race and sports Jay Rood said, referring to Sunday's NFL playoff games. "We'll be into the seven figures (on Ohio State-Oregon)."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Conference Championship matchups are set

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL has never embraced the Final Four moniker, but that’s exactly what we’ve got left in this NFL season.  Four teams.  Three remaining meaningful games (sorry, I’m not counting the pro bowl as meaningful, even if you choose to wager on it).  One champion, yet to be crowned.

And there’s one strong commonality among the four teams still standing after two weekends of NFL Playoff action.   Each of the four teams still standing is there because of their quarterback.  As the league has adjusted their rules year by year, making it more difficult to defend the passing game, the very best QB’s have taken advantage of those rule changes, making them nearly impossible to defend.

Bettors probably remember the Patriots gameplan when they travelled to Indy in Week 11; one of four games this year where the Pats were installed as underdogs by the betting markets.  Bill Belichick installed a radically different gameplan than most Pats fans (and their betting supporters) were used to.  New England played for extended stretches with six offensive linemen in power rushing formations, finishing the game with Read more

Las Vegas sportsbooks want betting on the Olympics

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas sportsbooks are pushing to make betting on the Olympics legal. For whatever reason, the Gaming Control Board wouldn't allow it whereas offshore sportsbooks like Pinnacle offer an endless array of both summer and winter Olympic betting options. The next Olympic games is scheduled for Rio de Janeiro in the summer of 2016.


“It’s a different world out there,” said South Point bookmaker Jimmy Vaccaro. “Anything that we add that draws any attention or brings anybody in is a huge plus … They won’t be knocking down the doors to make bets on this, but it’s just one more thing that we think we should be able to do.”

College Basketball Betting: UNLV seeks revenge vs. rival Nevada

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rivalry game tonight in Las Vegas with UNLV playing host to Nevada. Despite the Rebels owning a huge edge historically, the Wolf Pack won both regular season meetings last year.


"It's a huge game on our schedule because it's the next conference game," he said — the Wolf Pack has taken a different approach. Carter and his players said there's a little extra on the line given the rivalry.

"It means a lot," said point guard Marqueze Coleman, who is coming off a career-high 18 points in Nevada's last game. "It's a huge rivalry, and it's going to continue. We got two last year, and I know they're going to be heated and want to get us back. We need to go into Thomas & Mack ready to play."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: College Football Bowl Game Bad Beats

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Without a college football playoff this year, we probably would have seen the two losers of the semi-final games (Florida State and Alabama) face off for the national title, instead of the Oregon-Ohio State matchup that we are actually going to see next Monday.  But while the talking heads on TV fixate on the upcoming marquee matchup, there is room for the savvy ‘capper to look back on what just happened over the past three weeks of bowl action in an effort to draw lessons that will help in the future.

Throughout the last few weeks, there were some bad beats that rivaled the toughest beats that we’ve seen in college football all year.  Three stand out in particular; Houston’s late rally to beat Pitt, Michigan State’s late rally to beat Baylor and Central Michigan’s late rally to cover against Western Kentucky. 

Of the three, the Michigan State comeback in the Cotton Bowl was the most likely to occur, despite the Spartans clear deficiencies in the ballgame.  Mark Dantonio’s squad allowed 603 passing yards, but they got the stops they needed during crunch time.  Baylor missed a 46 yard field goal at the Read more

The Oregon Ducks opened as a 7-point favorite over Ohio State for next week's college football championship in Dallas. That's where they currently stand both offshore and in Las Vegas with the exception of Pinnacle which has the Ducks -6.5 (-115). The total has seen upward pressure from 72 to as high as 74.5. This after both semifinal contests went flying over the total. Sportsmemo handicapper Rob Veno's Power Ratings show Oregon to be -7.5. Sagarin meanwhile has the game as a virtual pick 'em with Ohio State 0.43 ahead of Oregon.

College Basketball Gambling: Bettors jump on Kentucky's potentially perfect season

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We knew this one was coming. Various Las Vegas sportsbooks have been offering a prop bet on whether or not Kentucky will run the table. William Hill chucked up a 50-1 during the summer -- which was in our opinion sorta insulting given the “true” odds of the feat. Fast forward five months and that's looking like the one awesome wager! The current adjusted price is +450. We ask the question, doesn't Calipari WANT to lose a game? Isn't that the type of thing that can be used to benefit the bigger picture? In theory, yes, but there’s also that whole ego thing to contend with.


"It's pretty good six figures, too," William Hill director of trading Nick Bogdanovich said of the liability on the popular prop bet. "They keep betting it."
