College Football Conference Championship Betting: Bettors show early support for favorites

12.02.2014     02:51 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seen a fair amount of betting market activity for this weekend's college football conference championships. We'll start first with Friday's PAC-12 title game (at Santa Clara) where Oregon opened -13.5 and got popped up to -14.5. Saw a similar move in the SEC Championship with Alabama opening -14 at CRIS, -13 at Pinnacle, but bet up to -14.5 across the board. Per usual, there was anti-Florida State money off the opener of -4. But the Seminoles at -3 was just too attractive to some bettors with the current number back to the original opener of -4. And another favorite being supported with Boise State hit up from -19.5 to -21 in the Mountain West title game vs. Fresno. Still a few -20.5's available both offshore and in Las Vegas. Also looks like Northern Illinois could be headed to -7 vs. Bowling Green after an opener of -6.

Monster October for Las Vegas sportsbooks

12.02.2014     06:40 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
October was a big month for Las Vegas sportsbooks as they raked in nearly $27 million in profits.


"It was our biggest month in the last couple years in terms of the amount of bets," said Jason Simbal, vice president of race and sports for CG Technology. "The average bet amount is the same, but there's more people betting."

"Sports betting is still a fairly small blip in the radar, but that may not stay the case in the years to come," Rood said. "There might be some winds of change coming down the road, but I see the trend continuing."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Early season NBA betting trends

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’re more than a month into the young NBA season, and there are numerous trends that have begun to rear their heads, offering the potential for continued returns throughout the course of the season.  In this week’s Vegas Wiseguy Report, I’ll be putting some of these early season teams and angles that have been moneymakers thusfar under the microscope, assessing their potential continued profitability as the calendar turns to December.

Let me start with a pair of totals trends that have been cashing winning bet after winning bet through the first month of the campaign.  The high scoring, no-defense  Houston Rockets are 14-3 to the Under, followed closely by Oklahoma City at 13-4 to the Under.  Oklahoma City’s Under run makes more short term sense – they’ve been playing without their two superstars Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, although Westbrook returned to the lineup last w eek and Durant is expected to follow in the near future.  The Thunder have relied heavily on their defense, slowing down the pace and keeping opponents out of the paint with Serge Ibaka and seven footers Kendrick Perkins and Steven Read more

CRIS Opener:
Florida State -10.5 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Florida State -7 O/U 53
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -10.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Florida

Turn the page back to lateThanksgiving 2010, and Will Muschamp was at or near the top of almost everyone's list of young college coaches on the rise and perhaps destined for head coaching greatness.

Muschamp, then the University of Texas' defensive coordinator and that school's so-called "coach in waiting," had earned the reputation of being a talented recruiter and hard-nosed coordinator who had demanded the best out of his defenses at high profile places such as LSU, Auburn and Texas.

After being named the Longhorns' coach-in-waiting in 2008, Muschamp was expected to succeed Mack Brown upon the coaching legend's still to be determined Read more

Mark Cuban makes fun of NFL's archaic stance on sports betting

Mark Cuban spitting knowledge...


“I agree 100 percent,” Cuban said Saturday, via Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com.  “I think we’re the world’s biggest hypocrites when we say, ‘Oh, we don’t want you betting on our games,’ and then we get all excited about the sports betting line and people go to Vegas on trips won from the NBA or NFL.  I mean, it’s hugely hypocritical.”

“We’ll charge the casinos for information sources, video sources,” Cuban said.  “All you’ve got to do is look overseas.  You can go and legally bet on the NBA in the U.K. and a bunch of other countries, and they’re actually big customers of NBA video. . . .  So you’ve got a template already that’s legal in the rest of the world other than America.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Power Ratings Movers and Shakers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following the Week 11 results, for the first time since 2012, I have a team other than the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks ranked #1 in my NFL Power Ratings.  Seattle has been steadily declining in my power ratings for most of the season.  The Seahawks lack of defensive line depth was problematic in early season losses to Dallas and San Diego, both of whom wore them down in the second half and were able to run the football successfully throughout.  The loss of stud lineman Brandon Mebane only made those depth concerns greater prior to their game at Kansas City this past weekend; a game where the Chiefs ran all over the Seahawks defense. 

Seattle also lacks consistent downfield playmakers at the wide receiver position since trading away Percy Harvin.  In their loss to the Chiefs, Seattle lost star center Max Unger to injury as well, truly an impact injury.  If the playoffs started today, the Seahawks would be on the outside looking in.  Clearly, this is not the best team in the NFL as we approach Thanksgiving and the December stretch run.

Denver has been ranked #1 or #2 in my power ratings in every single week since 2012, Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: AFC News and Notes

11.10.2014     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Cleveland Browns went into Thursday Night’s matchup at Cincinnati with a winning record, but without much respect from the betting markets.  Cleveland had spent the last month feasting on the weak, facing off against the likes of the Titans, Jaguars, Raiders and Bucs in their previous five games; arguably the four worst teams in the NFL.  The Browns didn’t blow out any of those squads; locked in tight, competitive games each time except their only loss during that span – a blowout defeat at Jacksonville.

Without pro bowl center Alex Mack in the lineup over their previous three games, the Browns offense became completely one-dimensional; a team that couldn’t run the football one iota.  Against Tampa’s shoddy rush D, it was 26 carries for 50 yards.  The week before, it was 25 rushes for 39 yards.  The week before that, it was 30 rushes for 69 yards.  That’s less than two yards per carry against weaklings.

So what did the Browns do in their step-up game on Thursday Night at Cincinnati?  Simple – they dominated on both sides of the football, start to finish, rushing for 170 yards and Read more

NFL Gambling: Sportsbook offers prop bet on Oakland's potential winless season

11.08.2014     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas South Point Sportsbook posted a "yes" or "no" prop bet on whether or not the Oakland Raider would win or tie a regular season game. The "no" is a juicy +1000 whereas the "yes" is -1800. To no surprise 53 of the 54 bets taken were on the "no." Below is Oakland's remaining schedule; likely to be underdogs in eight games. Their best chance could be Week 17 if Denver is locked into a playoff spot and plays its fourth stringers.

NFL Gambling Update: Pinnacle opens Dallas -7.5 vs. Jacksonville

UPDATE

Back-to-back practices for Tony Romo was enough for a few offshore sportsbooks to hang a number on Sunday's game vs. Jacksonville. Pinnacle opened Dallas -7.5ev but has since been bet down to -7-05. The total of 45.5 hasn't budged. In Las Vegas, the Westgate posted -7 and 45.5 earlier this morning.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFC News and Notes

We’re into November, just past the halfway point of the 2014 NFL season.  The truths that we learned in September aren’t proving to be quite so true now that the season has progressed.  In this week’s wiseguy report, we’ll take a quick tour around the NFC landscape, focusing on some hidden gems of knowledge from around the league.

With their dominating win on Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals are now 14-3 SU, 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 ballgames.  Only one of those three losses came by more than a field goal – their game at Denver, when third string rookie QB Logan Thomas was forced into action after injuries to Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.

Yet the Cardinals statistical profile continues to confound wiseguy bettors.  Arizona went into their game at Dallas on Sunday with a -0.6 yards per play differential.  To put that number in perspective, the Oakland Raiders entered the weekend with a - 0.5 yards per play differential, the Jacksonville Jaguars had a -0.7 ypp differential.    And the Cards have been on the lucky end of the turnover equation this year, now +10 for the season after winning the Read more
