Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Reevaluating NFL teams during the preseason

08.29.2016     09:13 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
If you read my NFL previews over the summer months (eight different Wiseguy Reports, one for each division), you know that I had some pretty strong opinions about a good handful of teams prior to the start of training camp and preseason.  In fact, 15 of the 32 NFL teams were on my initial short list for potential season win total bets, just shy of half the league.  These were all teams that, on paper, looked better or worse than initial oddsmaker projections.

After watching three weeks of NFL Preseason action, most of my initial opinions have been reinforced, and the betting markets have agreed with the vast majority of the win total wagers that I’ve made and those I’ve advised my clients to make.  That being said, I’ve changed my opinion on a handful of those 15 teams, in several cases rather strongly.  In this week’s wiseguy report, I’m going to flesh out what I’ve seen in the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens that have me thinking very differently about those squads today compared to my opinion of them a month ago.

For the Redskins, the change in thought process is Read more

NFL Handicapping: Dallas confident in Prescott, reopen a pick 'em vs. Giants Week 1

08.29.2016     08:55 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With Tony Romo on the shelf, rookie Dak Prescott finds himself Dallas' Week 1 starter. Prescott put together an impressive preseason (39-of-50, 78%, 5 TDs, 0 INT) and reportedly has earned the confidence of his teammates. Dallas is expected to pick up another signal caller with Jameill Showers the only other healthy quarterback on the current roster. No word on whether or not Prescott will play in Thursday's preseason finale vs. Houston. Romo's injury prompted most sportsbooks to take down all of Dallas' future odds. The Cowboys were -3 home favorites for Week 1's game vs. the New York Giants. A few sportsbooks reopened with a pick 'em.

NFL Gambling Alert: Broncos name Siemian Week 1 starter

08.29.2016     08:44 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Two first rounders --  one of which with 72 career starts under his belt -- were passed over by a seventh rounder who has never attempted a regular season pass. Denver announced that Trevor Siemian will start Week 1's home opener against Carolina. Siemian reportedly showed "growing confidence and presence in the huddle" during last week's preseason victory over Los Angeles. Mark Sanchez didn't see the field and is expected to be cut. Denver plans on picking up a cheaper QB on the waiver wire. Note that whoever takes the snaps for this squad will be behind a completely rebuilt and thus far suspect offensive line.

“We have a lot of work to do,” Broncos left tackle Russell Okung said. “We definitely have the talent up front. Guys have amazing skill sets. There’s time to bring it together.”

NFL Preseason Betting: Pittsburgh's Big Ben, Brown, and Bell to play vs. Saints

08.25.2016     10:20 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell are all expected to play in Friday's preseason game at New Orleans. Head coach Mike Tomlin did not specify how much action they would get. The Saints were bet heavily early today as the line jumped from -1.5 to as high as -3.

“I feel like I could go into the regular season and do it, but I’d like to be to there because it’s a different speed,” Roethlisberger said. “You want to get out. I wouldn’t even mind getting hit once maybe after the ball’s gone, just a little tap from someone.”

NFL Preseason Gambling: Minnesota continues to cash tickets under Zimmer

08.25.2016     10:09 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer downplayed the importance of Sunday's preseason game vs. San Diego saying Week 1 of the regular season remains the team's top priority. That said, no one can deny Minny's ability to cash tickets in these "meaningless" games. Since becoming head coach, the Vikings are 10-1 SU, 9-2 ATS, and 3-7-1 O/U under Zimmer in the preseason. The Vikings are currently -4.5 home favorites over the Chargers.

"I still want to know what our guys know without having to try to scheme somebody else," Zimmer said. "We're just going to go play and do what we do. I know everybody says, 'Dress rehearsal,' but I don't know if it's like that any more. At least, it hasn't been like that for me for a long time."

"Obviously, we want to look good," Zimmer said. "If we're not ready, then I'm not going to (automatically rest players). It just depends. I know everybody judges off just the games, but we have to judge off practice every day, watching tape,

NFL Preseason Betting: Carolina starters to play into third quarter vs. New England

08.25.2016     10:00 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Carolina Panthers' starters are expected to play into the third quarter of Friday's game against New England. This will mark the third straight season the two squads have met in Week 3 of the preseason. Last year, New England won 17-16 at a +1.5 underdog. In 2014, the Patriots cruised to a 30-7 victory as -6 chalk. The Panthers are currently -3.5 home favorite for Friday's tilt.

“This is, to a degree, the dress rehearsal, but we’re going out and do what we do,” Rivera said. “We’ve looked at what they’ve done in the preseason and that’s what we’re game-planning against.”
