Feds illegally weasel their way into hotel room of illegal sports betting ring

10.30.2014     06:44 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Back in July, a handful of dudes were arrested at Las Vegas' Caesars Casino for running an illegal sportsbook out of their hotel room. Want to know how they got busted? The Feds shut down the internet, acted like repairman, and were able to access the room without a warrant. As a result, there's a chance that the evidence they gained will be thrown out in court.


"They were trying everything they could to get inside without a warrant," Goldstein told the AP.

"Police are allowed to use a certain kind of subterfuge, but what they can't do is create a certain kind of circumstance," Rasch said.

Nevada sportsbooks post big September profits

10.28.2014     02:30 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Reportedly their third greatest month ever with $37 million in profits.


"More and more people are tearing down the belief that betting on sports is a bad thing and realizing that the entertainment value is through the roof," Vaccaro, now with the sports book at the South Point casino, said. "We have 15 windows open from 9 o'clock to 10 o'clock in the morning on Sundays, and the lines are 25 deep. Guys who have been long-time customers are coming up to me and asking about signing up for the phone app, because they're afraid they're going to get shut out. I think that's a big, big reason why you're seeing more ticket transactions. And it's not going to slow down anytime soon."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Previewing the NBA Season O/U Wins market

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Halloween week and the brand spankin’ new NBA season is upon us.  Some things have changed dramatically, most notably Lebron leaving Miami for a return trip to Cleveland.  That sets the books up for a real beating if the Cavs win the title next June since the Cavs opened as high as 60:1 before their enormous talent upgrade. 

Other things remain exactly the same, like the fact that the West is much, much stronger than the East, just as it has been since the Bulls run of dominance with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen ended 17 years ago.  Let’s take a look at the upcoming NBA season from a betting perspective.

Other than the Cavs, many of the top contenders for the title remain the same.  The Spurs, Clippers, Thunder and Bulls are the only other teams besides Cleveland to be priced at less than 10:1 to win the title next June; all elite teams from last year. 

The top two teams in the East from 2013-24 – Miami and Indiana – both took major offseason hits, with the Heat losing LeBron and the Pacers losing Lance Stephenson to free agency and Paul George to a broken leg.  Oklahoma City, Read more

NFL Handicapping: Oddsmakers peg Dallas' Murray for another 100-yard game

10.23.2014     01:07 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Dallas' DeMarco Murray has been putting up some serious numbers (6 straight 100-yard games) and has drawn the attention of oddsmakers. The Westgate SuperBook has set Murray's O/U rushing yards at 110.5 for Monday Night's game vs. Washington. The Redskins have actually been decent against the run at 103.3 ypg (12th) and 3.8 ypc (10th) allowed.

Washington's top opposing rusher game-by-game
Russell Wilson - 122 yards
Arian Foster - 103 yards
Andre Ellington - 67 yards
Andre Williams - 66 yards
Bishop Sankey - 54 yards
LeSean McCoy - 22 yards
Chad Henne - 17 yards


"We're expecting the sharp players to bet under this number we put up," Sherman said, referring to the professional sports bettors in Las Vegas. "They usually like to bet under on everything, whether it's a receiver's receiving yards or a running back's rushing yards. They usually just blindly bet 'under' on most stuff. And just with what Murray has done, we'd expect to get the general public to bet on the over

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

Atlanta Falcons
Since blowing out Tampa Bay on national TV in Week 3, the Atlanta Falcons have looked nothing short of awful.  A team that made it to the NFC Championship Game two years ago is now entrenched in a four game skid; picking up right where they left off last year when they went 4-12 and ranked among the most disappointing teams in football.

All four losses during this SU and ATS skid have come by double digit margins.  The Falcons certainly aren’t going to win many defensive struggles – their stop unit has allowed 24+ six times in seven ballgames this year, a mediocre defense on a good day.  But many pundits thought the Falcons would be good enough to trade points with most of their foes.  That simply hasn’t been the case, in large part, due to cluster injuries on the offensive line, with backup center Peter Konz the latest to go down.

Matt Ryan was sacked five times and hit nine times in Atlanta’s loss to Baltimore on Sunday, while throwing for a season low in yards. "When you go out there and get beat soundly, I think everybody knows we've got to play better across the board. Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling Part 2

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote about the NFL’s origins: a league designed by gamblers for gamblers.  Heck, the games are still played at 1 pm on Sundays here in 2014, just as they were 80 years ago, because the old Blue Laws forced horse tracks to close on Sundays and the league’s original owners wanted to offer bettors a place to gamble after church every week.

This week’ I’ll be leaving the early days behind, picking up the story with the infamous 1958 Championship Game between the Colts and Giants – the game that really put the NFL on the map when it comes to national television exposure (and ratings).

The 1958 championship between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants has been called the "Greatest Game in NFL History."  The overtime thriller was nationally televised, and drew enormous ratings with forty million Americans tuning in, spurring the league’s incredible growth over the next decade.
