Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference second half preview

02.22.2016     09:02 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I wrote about what I’m expecting from the Western Conference in the eight week stretch between the end of the All-Star Break and the beginning of the playoffs.  This week, I’m going to focus on the East, before my attention turns to March Madness for the next few Wiseguy Reports.

There’s no question that the Eastern Conference is finally getting better after nearly two decades of playing second fiddle to the West.  Since Michael Jordan (and everybody else) left the Bulls following their sixth title in 1998, the Eastern Conference has only won five championships, something the Lakers and Spurs have each done five times by themselves during that span!  Detroit won in 2004, Miami won in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and Boston won in 2008.

And from all indications in the betting markets, the East isn’t very likely to win a title this year either.  Cleveland is the only team in the East priced at less than 15-1 to reach the Read more

MLB Handicapping: Miami moves in fences at Marlins Stadium

02.17.2016     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors should be aware that the Miami Marlins moved in and lowered the outfield fences at Marlins Park. Since opening in 2012, Marlin Park has ranked 26th, 30th, 26th, and last year 28th in terms of Park Factor home run rate.


"From a statistical standpoint, there is an advantage, given our players and how they play. Where we're moving it in we'll get a slight advantage hitting versus pitching," Samson said. "It'll be interesting to see what it means psychologically. That's the one thing we can't measure.

"There are some players who say, 'When it plays smaller I feel better about myself.'"

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Buffalo Sabes at Ottawa Senators

Buffalo at Ottawa -145 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Over


Two Atlantic Division clubs battle in the Canadian capital as the Ottawa Senators host the Buffalo Sabres tonight. Both clubs have fallen on hard times as of late with the Senators losing six of their last eight contests. The addition of defenseman Dion Phaneuf hasn't helped with their blueline issues as Ottawa's opponents have scored three or more goals in 12 of its last 15 games. Their penalty killing unit is dead last in the NHL having allowed 48 goals thus far in the season, and their 181 goals allowed overall is also a league-worst. Buffalo has lost seven of its last 11 games overall and will be without forward Evander Kane, who is scratched due to oversleeping and missing practice after partying on Sunday after the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto. His benching obviously hurts what has been an inconsistent offense. Ironically enough, the Sabres have been outshot in each of their wins dating all the way back to December 14th. Ottawa has gone over the total in seven of its last 10 games while the Sabres are currently on a 3-1 O/U. Even with Kane out, the defenses for both squads is suspect enough to Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: UT-Arlington Mavericks at Georgia State Panthers

UT-Arlington at Georgia State -1 O/U 139.5
Recommendation: Over


Georgia State has talked a lot about finding easier ways to score including the occasional fast break opportunity. It's no doubt been a grind as the Panthers rank 11th in the Sun Belt in offensive efficiency (0.96 ppp). Last time out, they beat Texas State despite failing to crack 60 and prior to that were held to 53 in a road loss at Arkansas-Little Rock. Tonight's opponent, however, serves as an opportunity for GSU to run a little bit and also score some points. UT-Arlington is one of the fastest teams in the country and routinely plays games in the 150's and above. Eight out of their 10 Sun Belt games topped 140 including the first meeting between the two schools as UTA won 85-70 (76 possessions). Thing are a little different this time around as UTA lost Kevin Hervey (18.1 ppg) for the year back in late January. The Mavericks had a "hump up" effort the first game without Hervey as they crushed Arkansas State 91-64. But since then, UTA has dropped four straight and allowed 84.8 ppg in the process. Keep in mind this was a squad that earlier this year held Ohio State to 68 and Read more

Super Bowl 50 Prop Bet Pick: Carolina Panthers Player Rushing Attempts

Carolina Over 4.5 players to get a Rush Attempt  (+140 Superbook)
Jonathan Stewart will be the starting running back.  Cam Newton had at least three rushing attempts in every game, averaging just shy of eight per contest.  Fullback Mike Tolbert had at least one rush in 17 of the Panthers 18 games; at least two rushes in 16 of those games.  Those three are virtual ‘locks’ to get a carry.

But at least four other Panthers have a decent shot to get a carry on Sunday, making the Over 4.5 a worthy wager at this attractive plus price.  I wrote up my rational for Ted Ginn above.  Corey Brown is another speedster, with six rushing attempts during the regular season, five of which gained seven yards or more.  Backup RB Cameron Artis Payne had 36 carries in four games down the stretch, and he’s certainly could to see the field here after missing the NFC Championship Game.  And third down back Fozzy Whittaker, banged up down the stretch, is ‘live’ to get a carry (or two, or three) as well.  Whittaker had 16 carries in their final four regular season games and two more in the NFC title Read more

Super Bowl 50 Gambling: Westgate SuperBook expects seats to fill up early

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The newly revamped Westgate SuperBook appears to be the "it" place for Sunday's Super Bowl 50. Director Jay Kornegay said if you want to get one of the first-come, first-served seats for the big game, you had better set your alarm.

 

“I don’t want to tell people 8 a.m. and they’re all filled up.” Kornegay said. “I’m saying the earlier, the better. That’s all I can tell you. I know people will be here at the crack of dawn in their seats.”

NBA Handicapping: Phoenix Suns cut bait with Hornacek

02.02.2016     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Losers of...wow, a ton of games of late, the Phoenix Suns finally parted ways with head coach Jeff Hornacek. In his place will be assistant Earl Watson who was last seen hoisting jump shots for the Portland Trail Blazers two years ago. The Suns opened the season 7-5 SU and 8-4 ATS but have since gone a mind-blowing 7-30 SU and 10-27 ATS. The good news is they play nine of their next 10 at home. The bad news is every opponent is likely playoff bound including Oklahoma City, Golden State, and San Antonio. Phoenix is catching +9.5 for tonight’s home game vs. Toronto.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors gear up for Super Bowl 50 Prop Bets

02.01.2016     09:00 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

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
