Las Vegas bettors with new option to hedge bets

08.10.2015     07:10 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A new way to bet futures in Las Vegas.


“If you are a sharp bettor, you can win off inefficiencies in the markets,” Pergande said. “What you look like in Week 2 is who you are. But in the sports books and the public’s opinion, people overreact. And when people overreact, that means there’s volatility. And when there’s volatility, that’s when you can make money.”

“We talk about the concept of hedging or locking a profit,” said Ted Sevransky, a veteran Las Vegas handicapper known as “Teddy Covers.” “This turns that concept into a reality.”

There's a football game this weekend, bettors. Yes, the annual Hall of Fame game is set to go down on Sunday (5 pm PT, NBC) with the Pittsburgh Steelers and Minnesota Vikings squaring off in Canton, Ohio. For the curious, here's the game's betting history.

We've seen a fair amount of line movement with the Vikings bet up from an opener of -2 to -3.5. The total has moved from 34 to 35. The rest of the league gets underway next week with six games on Thursday, six on Friday, three on Sunday, and lone game on Sunday.

Casinos forced to deal with rule-breaking high rollers

07.31.2015     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not surprising, but for all the stringent rules casinos have, those who enter with a suitcase full of cash can typically get away with anything they want. That includes acting like a spoiled six-year old who doesn't like it when they lose.


"All men are created equal except in the casino," Glen Costales, the pit manager, said at a hearing before a tribal gaming commission in May. Transcripts of the hearing were obtained by The Associated Press. "If it's a premium player, he gets away with a lot more than the five-dollar player would get away with."

"The casinos pretend they have rules that are set in stone, like going into a bank or dealing with a police station. Are they supposed to allow late bets? Absolutely not. Do they do it all the time? All the time," said Kaufmann, a dealer who sees plenty of crude behavior himself. "The abuse, the screaming, the cheating, the sexual harassment. Throwing things around. It's worse all the time."

We're still more than two weeks away from the NFL Preseason with the Hall of Fame game slated for Sunday, August 9. A few sportsbooks have posted a side and total on the game with Pittsburgh and Minnesota currently a pick 'em with a total of 34. Below is a rundown of the last 10 HOF contests (there was no game in 2011). No real trends to speak of with the underdog and favorite covering four times apiece with two pushes. Totals wise, it's split right down the middle at 5-5 O/U.

MLB Gambling Update: Boston's Rodriguez caught tipping pitches

06.30.2015     09:02 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Boston rookie Eduardo Rodriguez has a lot of upside. And he's shown as much with nearly unhittable performances in four of his six starts. The other two, however, were really bad. We blogged the other day that his outing vs. Toronto (4.2 IP, 9 ER) wasn't as bad as it seemed with a number of "seeing eye" hits and a pop fly lost in the sun. His last outing (3.2 IP, 6 ER vs. Baltimore) looks just as bad on the surface but reports have surfaced that that Rodriguez was tipping his pitches. As bettors, you can't completely discredit either outing -- no question he got hit around. But a pitcher's stat line doesn't always tell the full story. Assuming he makes an adjustment, tonight will still mark a significant challenge as the Blue Jays hit lefties harder than any team in baseball.


“It was borderline obvious,” Willis said Monday, via The Providence Journal.

MLB Handicapping: Shadows and sun give San Francisco home edge

06.24.2015     07:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article courtesy of FanGraphs on San Francisco's home field/day time/first inning advantage. Thursday’s game against San Diego is slated to start at 12:45 pm PT.


“During batting practice, it’s really bright,” said Venable. “Those empty bleachers are so bright, and the sun is setting behind you, so the light is pointing right at those seats. It can happen some in the first inning, too. I’m glad when I’m not leading off here. These parks are so great and professional, it’s not that big a deal, but you do notice when something is only a tiny bit off.”

MLB Gambling: Boston's Rodriguez back on hill after sub-par outing

06.19.2015     08:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston's stud rookie Eduardo Rodriguez finally got smacked around some as he allowed nine runs in 4.2 innings last time out against the Blue Jays. However, his performance may not have been as bad as what showed up on the stat line. The matchup wasn't ideal to begin with but there were a few bloop singles, bad defense, and a pop-up lost in the sun. Basically it was wheelhouse Red Sox baseball. Rodriguez takes the hill tonight in Kansas City as a +115 underdog.


“The way that team’s playing right now, everything’s falling their way,” Red Sox catcher Blake Swihart said of the Blue Jays, who tied a franchise record with their 11th consecutive win. “There were a bunch of bloop singles, a broken-bat single. During that (fourth inning), there was one ball that was hit hard, and that was (Ryan Goins’) home run. … (Rodriguez) was making his pitches. That’s just the way baseball is right now for those guys.”
