NCAA Tournament Gambling: Selection committee causes uproar in betting community

03.17.2014     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
No shock to see various oddsmakers question what the hell the NCAA selection committee was thinking when put together this year's shindig.


“That’s probably the hardest bracket I’ve ever seen in my whole life,” said Ed Salmons, assistant sports book director at the LVH Superbook who oversees college basketball. “It was a comedy show to watch all the teams they stacked that Wichita State would have to beat to get to the Final Four. It was over-the-top insane.”

“I just let people bet them all year, and they just kept doing it,” Salmons said of the Shockers. “It adds up. I finally lowered them to 10-to-1 but when I saw this region come out, I had to up them. Their true odds of winning this thing would have to be close to 100-to-1.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: An early look at the Field of 68

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’ve got brackets to break down! I’ll offer a quick take on the 28 matchups already set for Thursday and Friday. Games are listed in rotation order.

The A-10 got a handful of mediocre teams like Dayton into the NCAA Tournament mix, but the Flyers will certainly be looking forward to a matchup against an Ohio State team that has repeatedly avoided them in non-conference play. The Buckeyes enter the tourney on an 0-6 ATS run; just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 tries as chalk.

Syracuse, too, was a pointspread disaster area down the stretch, cashing only one winning bet in their last eight ballgames. But Western Michigan’s only win against an NCAA Tournament team came on the opening night of the season, back on November 8th, when they beat New Mexico State.

Phil Martelli’s Saint Joseph’s team hasn’t won an NCAA Tournament game since 2004, when Jameer Nelson and Delonte West were his starting guards. UConn is a Top 10 team for free throw shooting percentage; always key in this ‘short favorite’ pointspread Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: UNLV at full strength vs. Wyoming

03.13.2014     07:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wyoming at UNLV -8.5

It looks like UNLV will be at full strength – or close to it – for this afternoon's Mountain West Tournament first round matchup vs. Wyoming. Roscoe Smith (11.0 ppg, concussion) may not start but is expected to play. Same deal with Bryce Dejean-Jones (13.4 ppg, suspension). Khem Bitch (11.8 ppg) hurt his hip against San Diego State and has been limited in practice but will play.

WCC Championship Betting Preview: BYU Cougars vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
West Coast Conference Championship
BYU vs. Gonzaga
6 pm PT, Las Vegas, Nev.
CRIS Opener:
Gonzaga -3.5 O/U 4
CRIS Current: Gonzaga -4 O/U 148
Rob Veno Power Rating: Gonzaga -3

Quick Take: BYU scored only six points the final 10 minutes of regulation against San Francisco but went on the win in overtime. Gonzaga dominated Saint Mary's, 70-54. The Zags have been to 16 straight WCC title games (11-5 SU). The home side won both meetings during the regular season. Interesting that BYU dominated the glass in both contests with a combined 74-57 edge including 27 offensive rebounds. This despite  the Zags allowing the lowest offensive rebounding rate in the  WCC.

Quotes: Gonzaga head coach Mark Few on establishing dominance in the paint...


"I think we got back to probably being a more physical team, a rebounding team," GU coach Mark

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Betting Conference Tournaments

03.10.2014     07:33 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Big Dance gets all the headlines; all the media attention.  And it makes sense why that happens.  College basketball is way too big for the average fan.  More than 350 teams in more than 30 conferences are simply too much for non-hardcore hoops aficionados to handle.
And then there’s the bracket factor.  The entire country fills out brackets.  They’re easy to fill out, the seedings make sense to Joe Public, and after the first round, most of the obscure teams are gone.  Those obscure teams that survive are now public darlings, Cinderella stories that casual fans can understand and follow.

Forget fans – I’m no casual fan, and if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t either.  We’re sports bettors.  And for serious college basketball bettors, there’s absolutely no comparison between this week and next week.  This week, we’ve got dozens of Little Dances, the conference tournaments that are a sports bettors dream.  Next week, for the Big Dance, it’s still a betting bonanza, but not quite as good.  Here are my Top 6 reasons why.

Gambling Update: More details on drunk gambler who lost $500K

03.07.2014     08:00 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

At 52 years old, you should have experienced the following stages of drunkenness: buzzing, tipsy, drunk, hammered, and someone should probably call a doctor. And yet the gambler who lost $500K claims it was the responsibility of the casino to monitor his intake and eventually cut him off. Oh, and he takes prescription meds that enhance the effects of alcohol – something the casino was allegedly aware of.


"This is about you almost killing me," Johnston said. "What if I had gone to bed that night, with all those drinks in me, and I threw up on myself and I choked and died?"

"To her shock, after sleeping for seven to eight hours, (Johnston's female friend) found Mr. Johnston still gambling at the blackjack table, and still heavily intoxicated, late in the afternoon of January 31, 2014," the suit said.

Drunk gambler attempting to sue casino over losses

03.06.2014     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Dude walks into a Las Vegas casino. Dude gets hammered on comped drinks. Dude proceeds to lose $500K. Dude sues casino.


"It's certainly an extraordinary case. This is not a story that I've ever heard before, where someone was blackout intoxicated where they couldn't read their cards, and yet a casino continued to serve them drinks and issue them more markers," Lyttle said. "It's a very heavy-handed and unusual approach that we haven't seen in this town in a long time."

MLB Handicapping: Chicago White Sox projected to improve by 12 wins

03.03.2014     12:25 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Chicago White Sox are lined around 75 wins this season. That's a 12-win improvement over last year but the team is of course thinking bigger and better. Our advice? Start with that robust .302 team on-base percentage and go from there.


“I’m not too concerned with Vegas odds on that or where I would lay the action,” Hahn said. “Seventy-five wins would be a 12-win improvement, which would be a nice amount, but it’s certainly not what we’re shooting for as we sit here right now. Obviously we’re going to have to have health and guys reaching their potential break our way to get more than that, but that’s what we’re shooting for.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part II

03.03.2014     07:19 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part 1 of this article last week, I took a basic look at the profile of the past 16 NCAA champions.  From that profile, I was able to make a ‘short list’ of potential champs in 2014, consisting of the following 18 teams: Cincinnati, Louisville, Virginia, Syracuse, Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, Iowa State, Creighton, Villanova, Michigan, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Iowa, Arizona, UCLA, Florida and Kentucky.

However, since last week, two of those 18 teams have been bounced from consideration, including one of the co- favorites at any sportsbook in Vegas – John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats.  Kentucky lost two straight last week; Iowa has lost three of their last four.  Both teams are now above the seven loss cut-off line and can be eliminated.

The next step in the elimination process is to look at the team’s records away from home.
The NCAA championship is not won on a team’s home floor.  Even with a Read more
