NFL Gambling Preview: Houston Texans at Carolina Panthers

Houston at Carolina
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Carolina -3.5 O/U 41
CRIS Current: Carolina -3 O/U 40
Recommendation: Under

The Texans were ambushed in the first half of their home opener by Kansas City last Sunday as the Chiefs scored on five consecutive possessions resulting in 27 points. In that mix were a pair of Houston turnovers (1 interception, 1 fumble) which set the Chiefs up in point blank range at the Texans’ 13- and 7-yard lines. Those turnovers cost Houston 14 points and in all, three of KC’s five scoring drives were 22 yards or less.

Houston’s second half performance was much cleaner on both sides of the ball as the offense did not commit a turnover and the defense pitched a shutout forcing four punts on Kansas City’s five possessions. The rally fell short but the Texans did get the once blowout to the point where Kansas City had to recover an onside kick to secure the 27-20 victory. Not really that bad for a game when you consider Houston’s average starting position was their own 19 while the Chiefs’ was their own 40. Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Arizona Cardinals at Chicago Bears

Arizona at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Arizona -2 O/U 45
CRIS Current: Arizona -2 O/U 45
Recommendation: Arizona

The Chicago Bears opened up the year with a tough 31-23 loss to Green Bay. Running back Matt Forte was solid with 141 rushing yards and a touchdown and while Chicago's defense has shown some improvement from last season's horrific campaign, there are still some glaring issues. The Bears allowed 6.1 yards per play with some terrible displays of missed tackling and poor reading of rushing routes against the Packers. Things won't be any easier this week with Arizona. The Cards pulled away from New Orleans with two late touchdowns to earn the 31-19 victory. Arizona's tough defense held a very good Saints offense to four field goals and only 54 yards on the ground. Offensively, the Cardinals averaged 7.5 yards per play and were a perfect 3-for-3 inside the red zone.

The Bears are going to have to diversify their offense and take more chances when nearing the red zone. They seemed too reliant on short passes and screens last game and while Arizona has two Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How the NFL betting markets have changed

09.14.2015     08:49 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When I first moved to Las Vegas just prior to the 1998 football season, I was not an experienced, seasoned bettor.  There was a TON to learn, and for my first few years in town, I made sure to consume every bit of handicapping material I could find, primarily through books, newsletters and radio.  And just about all of that source material referenced some key NFL concepts for winning.

“Don’t play road favorites; they’re a low expectation wager.”  “Week 1 in the NFL is the lowest scoring week until the cold weather hits – look for Unders, especially with the highest totals.”  “Beware the public teams; you’re laying a premium price to support them.”  “There’s more value in underdogs than in favorites.”  “The key numbers of ‘3’ and ‘7’ are crucial to have working in your favor.”  I could go on and on, but you get the point.  I’m quite confident that 18 years later, many relative newbies continue to rely on very similar concepts.  The conventional wisdom in the sportsbetting world, even for a sport as popular to Read more

NFL Gambling: Looking back on last night's Cowboys-Giants fiasco

09.14.2015     08:10 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Did you happen to catch the last five minutes of Sunday night's Dallas-New York game? Whoa. We're still trying to figure out exactly how the Cowboys won. It was an epic fail of historical proportion for the Giants.

Deadspin does a good job breaking down the comedy of errors.

Coughlin and Manning are BOTH using the "that one's on me, fellas" excuse.

The in-game win probability will make your brain hurt.

Betting wise, there was a ton in play, particularly the total. And you know plenty of parlay cards had the Cowboys.

Las Vegas sportsbooks take hit on Week 1 NFL

09.14.2015     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With NFL favorites going 9-4 ATS on Sunday, it wasn't a great day for Las Vegas sportsbooks.


"I don't remember a worse opening Sunday," said Jay Kornegay, chief of the Westgate SuperBook and a 20-year veteran bookmaker.

"At our joint, the Rams winning was good for the parlays, but we had some pretty high, smart bets on the Rams," Simbal said. "We had 1.5 [times] more tickets on Seattle, but 2.5 times more money on the Rams. That was a game that was pretty much public vs. pro. And pro wins."

NFL Gambling Preview: Balitmore Ravens at Denver Broncos

Baltimore at Denver
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Denver -4 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Denver -4.5 O/U 48.5
Recommendation: Under

Few teams in the NFL have changed their expected gameplan as much as the Denver Broncos here in 2015.  Last year, Denver spent the majority of the season in a quick strike, pass heavy offense.  Denver ranked among the top five teams in the NFL, averaging 6.0 yards per play.  Peyton Manning threw for more than 4,700 yards, completing 39 touchdown passes and more than 66% of his throws.  Meanwhile, the Broncos defense was riddled with key injuries, forcing them into ‘Offensive Shootout’ mode on a fairly regular basis.

But Manning’s arm strength clearly declined down the stretch last year and new head coach Gary Kubiak and his staff have made it very clear – they’re going to be a run first offense this year with CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman getting the lion’s share of carries.  Manning is not expected to stretch the field with his arm.  We’re going to see a concerted effort to keep Read more

ESPN's gambling coverage starting to irk folks

09.09.2015     10:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With football season underway terms like "pointspread", "underdog", and "cover" get tossed around pretty loosely by bettors and non-bettors alike. ESPN -- and others -- continue to find ways to interject gambling angles into their coverage because let's be honest, there isn't much to talk about when a four touchdown SEC favorite takes on a team from the Sun Belt. But even if the majority embraces the additional way to look at a game, there are still those who don't find it all that amusing -- particularly those affiliated with the schools we bet on and of course the NCAA. 


“Coverage of sports betting has been carefully considered over a long period of time,” the ESPN statement said. “We recognize that fans are increasingly interested in this conversation and that millions engage in legal sports betting. Our coverage has mirrored that larger trend in recent years and this is another step. We will approach this subject the way we do any beat we cover

College Football Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Virginia Cavaliers

Notre Dame at Virginia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -10 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -11.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Virginia

There is not much to dislike about Notre Dame’s impressive 38-3 romp over the Texas Longhorns last week. For starters, they outgained the Longhorns by a stunning 527-163 margin. Quarterback Malik Zaire was terrific completing 19-for-22 passes for 313 yards with 3 TDs and no picks and the ground attack led by C.J. Prosise and Josh Adams combined for 147 yards and 5.88 yards per carry. It was dominance on both sides of the line of scrimmage for Notre Dame who allowed just 60 rushing yards at a paltry 2.1 yards per carry clip and yielded barely over 100 yards passing amazing when you consider UT was playing the entire game from behind. However, as a result, we appear to be laying a tax with the Irish to go along with the early market support.

Virginia didn’t play its best in a 34-16 loss at UCLA but it is never an easy travel/scheduling situation Read more
