College Basketball Handicapping: If you've been betting on SEC road teams, you're probably rich

02.14.2017     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By this point in the season, you are probably aware that the SEC isn't very good. Kentucky, Florida and South Carolina are all solid and sure-fire tournament teams but beyond that, it's pretty messy. And by messy, we mean a lot of mediocre basketball. One interesting stat in the SEC this year is how bad home courts have been. Last season, the SEC ranked second out of 32 leagues with a home straight up winning percentage of 69.8%. This season has been the complete opposite. Heading into tonight's games, home teams have won 43 of 84 games which is barely over 50%. Compared to the rest of the power conference world -- ACC (68.1%), PAC-12 (61.5%), Big XII (61.3%), Big East (59.4%), Big Ten (58.6%) -- that's horrific. And let's not forget the automatic win when Missouri rolls into town. But where it really starts to get noteworthy is the spread records of those road teams. How about 51-32-1 ATS or 61.4%!



SEC SU/ATS Road Record
South Carolina (5-1 SU, 3-2-1 ATS)
Florida (4-1 SU, 4-1 ATS)
Alabama (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS)
Kentucky (4-2 SU, 2-4 ATS)
Arkansas (4-2 SU, 4-2 ATS)
Vanderbilt (4-3 SU, 5-2 ATS)
Tennessee (3-3 SU, Read more

Trump talks legalized sports betting

02.09.2017     09:14 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
President Donald Trump had this to say about the potential for legalized sports betting. It's a fairly boilerplate response; eerily sane compared to some of the other spew that has come out of his mouth since taking office.


GRAY: “You know quite a bit, as a former casino owner, and you have a particular insight — today an estimated $5 billion will be wagered, $4.8 billion, unregulated and untaxed illegally. What is your position and thoughts on making sports gambling legal nationwide?”

TRUMP: “Well, what I’d do is I’d sit down with the commissioners. I would be talking to them, and we’ll see how they feel about it. Some would not want it, and probably others — and I’ve read others maybe do. But I would certainly want to get their input and get the input from the various leagues, and we’ll see how they feel about it. I’d also get the input from lots of law enforcement officials, because, obviously, that’s a big step.

“So we wouldn’t do it lightly, I can tell you. It

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls at Golden State Warriors

Chicago +14 at Golden State O/U 223.5
Recommendation: Chicago


Betting the Warriors off a rare loss was a real moneymaker last year.  That has not been the case here in 2016-17.  Golden State is coming off their eighth loss of the season, at Sacramento last weekend. Following their first seven defeats, the Warriors won their next game by 8, 10, 29, 8, 10, 11 and 10 points.

Note the lack of big blowouts – only once in those seven contests did the Warriors win by enough of a margin to cover tonight’s spread.  And the Warriors 3-4 ATS mark in those contests must come with an asterisk. Two of the three pointspread covers came when Golden State was -9.5 in games they won by exactly ten points.  And with Draymond Green dealing with a bum knee while Zaza Pachulia and David West are both out, this Warriors front court rotation is awfully thin right now.

My clients and I cashed a pair of Big Ticket winners with the Bulls last week, in their blowout win at OKC and their wire-to-wire spread covering loss in OT at Houston.   And there’s every reason to think that the Bulls remain a bet-on Read more

Super Bowl LI Prop Bet Pick: Number of Atlanta Falcons With A Rush Attempt

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Number of Atlanta Falcons With A Rush Attempt: Over 3.5 -135
The Atlanta Falcons had four different players with a rush attempt in each of their two playoff games and I think we will see that trend continue on Sunday. Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman and Matt Ryan (who is athletic enough to make plays and scored a rushing TD against Green Bay) are likely candidates to carry the ball at least once and I think there will be a fourth player to get an attempt. Receivers Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel are absolutely candidates to carry the ball on an end-around or double reverse type play. And trick plays certainly can't be ruled out of the equation especially with a creative offensive mind like Kyle Shanahan at the controls of the offense. Atlanta has a recent track record of 4+ players carrying the ball and it’s worth riding again on Sunday.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Akron Zips at Northern Illinois Huskies

Akron -3.5 at Northern Illinois O/U 140
Recommendation: Over


Northern Illinois has played an ultra-light schedule this season that featured only one power conference team (Minnesota). It's helped the Huskies look very capable on the defensive end as they rank 64th nationally in defensive efficiency and second inside the MAC. Tonight they face without question their toughest offensive opponent as Akron has had its way with the MAC thus far. The Zips have scored 83 or more in five of eight league games including back-to-back 90+ point efforts. It also looks as if Akron's love affair with scoring has hindered its defense. The Zips are a perfect 8-0 in league play but are allowing 1.07 ppp and in a number of those games, they held big leads but allowed the competition to stick around (hence their 4-4 ATS record). From a talent perspective, Akron is probably the most capable team in the MAC defensively. But it's hard to tighten the screws when the ball is routinely going through the basket and you're winning games. Northern Illinois features one of the weakest offenses in the MAC but at home it's reasonable to think they'll net a point per possession. Read more

Super Bowl LI Gambling: Atlanta Falcons saw little to no preseason futures action

01.30.2017     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You would think sportsbooks would be exposed if the Atlanta Falcons win Super Bowl LI due to their big odds heading into the season (as high as 100-1). According to one Las Vegas sportsbook, Atlanta was the second-least bet team in terms of Super Bowl futures.


“We’d actually do better on the Falcons (winning) than the Patriots,” Simbal said. “In fact, before the season started, they were the second-least bet team. Only the Titans had less.”

“They’re not a real public team,” Esposito said. “Even after their hot start, there were still a lot of nonbelievers.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Penn State Nittany Lions at Wisconsin Badgers

Penn State at Wisconsin -15 O/U 134.5
Recommendation: Under


This 2016 up-tempo version of Penn State resulted in some higher scoring non-conference efforts but offensive production has settled down in Big Ten play. The conference road has especially stalled the Nittany Lions offense as they’ve only scored 112 points total in their first two games (60 at Rutgers and 52 at Purdue). Although it’s a small sample size, the usual grind of a Big Ten season is showing up as defenses take hold and pace slows down. In their last three games, Penn State has shot 31.2%, 38.3% and 30.4% from the field. Things don’t get any easier tonight against the Wisconsin defense which is again among the national Top 25 in multiple categories. For the season, Wisconsin is allowing just 61.2 points per game and at home that number goes down to 54.5.

On offense, the Badgers offense is again displaying its extreme, methodical style ranking #337 in adjusted tempo out of 351 DI teams. And, as usual UW has been an elite team in offensive efficiency but what is unusual is how effective Penn State’s defense has been. Currently they are Read more

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable. The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers. From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deal that pumps more than three billion dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more

Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 51 Prop Bets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When I talk with casual fans in the week leading up to the Super Bowl, they tend to be interested in my opinion about who is going to win the big game. But when I’m talking with bettors, not fans, the topic inevitably turns towards props; where sports betting and fantasy sports collide.

Props have been on the Las Vegas betting boards for thirty years. It all began when the juggernaut 1985 Chicago Bears were facing the Patriots in Super Bowl 20. Legendary Vegas oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro was a very creative bookmaker at the Mirage (at the time), looking for ways to increase their betting handle. Vaccaro posted odds on whether 350 pound defensive lineman William ‘Refrigerator’ Perry would score a touchdown in the big game. Vaccaro certainly didn’t think it was likely, offering attractive underdog odds for those who wanted to bet on The Fridge would hit paydirt in the end zone.

Vaccaro’s unique offering attracted all kinds of attention both from bettors and from media types. It also accomplished his goal of increasing betting handle, with money pouring in on the ‘Yes, Fridge will score a TD’ side of the prop at big (but Read more
