Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Recapping NFL Preseason Week 2

08.18.2014     09:49 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote about how after a significant five year run of Overs in the preseason, Week 1 of the 2014 preseason brought a 13-4 mark to the Under.  So what happened in Week 2? With 15 games in the books as I write this on Monday morning, Overs have gone 9-6, cashing at a 60% clip throughout the course of the weekend.  That Week 1 run of Unders certainly didn’t last very long.

What’s behind the high scoring affairs from Week 2?  Penalties, penalties and more penalties; with flags up more than 50% from last year through the first two weeks of August.  And the biggest increases in penalties have come via the rule changes tied to pass defense.  Defensive holding, illegal contact and pass interference calls galore have become the new norm. 

The rule changes have most assuredly affected the totals markets for Week 1 of the regular season.  Historically, Week 1 is the lowest scoring week of the first three months of the season (when weather really starts to Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Oakland A's at Kansas City Royals

Oakland (Kazmir) -110 at Kansas City (Vargas) O/U 7
Recommendation: Oakland


When healthy, Jason Vargas has proven himself to be an above average starter at the major league level.  But Vargas is NOT healthy right now, still recovering from an emergency appendectomy that cost him a full month’s worth of playing time.  Kansas City Manager Ned Yost: “He's just still not quite sharp after his surgery.”

Vargas has been lit up in both post-appendectomy starts: 15 hits and nine runs allowed in 9.1 innings of work.   The A’s bashed him for seven runs less than two weeks ago, and Oakland is coming off a 20 hit, 11 run outburst last night; the third time in five games they’ve scored six runs or more.   Vargas’s six losses to Oakland since the start of 2011 is his most defeats against any team during that span. A’s sluggers Coco Crisp, Jed Lowrie (questionable tonight) and Brandon Moss all have good track records Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Recapping NFL Preseason Week 1

08.11.2014     12:46 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
From 2008 through 2013, Overs ruled the roost when it came to betting preseason football, with more Overs than Unders cashing in every single season.  The average points scored in August NFL games increased every year during that span, from 35.3 points per game in 2008 up to 41.2 points per game last year; a preseason that saw Overs cash at nearly a 60% clip. 

An increase of six points per game over a five year span is absolutely going to attract some betting market attention.  The quants who rule the markets aren’t going to let that type of information slip by without a significant reaction!

In particular, the lowest totals have been the best Over bets during this run of relatively high scoring affairs.  Totals of 36.5 or less have been enormous profit makers for Over bettors.  From 2009 through 2013, games totaled at 36.5 or less went Over at a 93-57 (62%) clip.  Games totaled at 37 or higher were essentially split 50-50 between Over cashes and Under cashes – all the profits came from betting lower totals Over.

So what happened in Week 1 this year?  A huge run of Unders!  Including the Hall of Fame Read more

Online gambling needs interest from more states

08.08.2014     06:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By now you've heard of the ridiculous Restoration of America's Wire Act in which old goof Sheldon Adelson and his political minions are trying to completely shut down online gambling. That includes the states that just made it legal like Nevada and New Jersey. It's not like $290,000 is a lot of money to Adelson, but despite the fact that there is practically zero chance the Wire Act will be passed, that is how much money was thrown into the anti-online gambling cause during the second quarter. But even though Adelson's attempt to shut down everything will fall short, his efforts are certainly hampering those try to expand online gambling. One gambling analyst noted that in order for online gambling to go national, more states need to show serious interest.


“If more and more states would enact online gaming at the state level, I think at some point there would be more interest for a federal bill,” he said.

“The FBI has warned it will open the door to money laundering and other criminal activity,”

Casino cheat's reign comes to an end after ridiculous gaffe

07.31.2014     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Story of a casino cheat who managed to stay under the radar for 15 years only to be busted at a Pennsylvania casino for using his real name and birthday (!!!???) to sign up for a player's club card.


“For a cardsharp, he wasn’t too sharp,” said Las Vegas casino consultant George Joseph.

“Guys like Chahine are what I call low-level, repeat offenders, versus the ones who go in for the big haul,” said Karl Bennison, chief of enforcement for the Nevada Gaming Control Board. “Who knows how many times he was successful, but if you can get away with it, cheating can be profitable.”
