The cure for low voter turnout is of course gambling

05.27.2014     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Jimmy Vaccaro says that the cure for low voter turnout is to allow people to gamble on the outcome.


"Let me tell you something. If you could bet on the election, you're gonna vote," Vaccaro said.

"Why not? It's the first time you can actually have a say in the outcome of your money," he said.

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

05.26.2014     08:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The LVH Superbook posted their NFL Season Win totals last weekend.  Cantor sportsbooks (CG Technology) have had season win totals posted for months.  Many other books both here in Vegas and offshore have posted season win totals, Week 1 pointspreads and Game of the Year pointspreads.  Most books that haven’t posted NFL numbers yet plan to do so in the near future.  The NFL offseason, at least for sports bettors, is essentially over.  Numbers are up, and they’re moving!

My first step in assessing the upcoming NFL season begins with a thorough look back at last year.  Every team’s power rating is set, in large part, based on where they finished the previous campaign.  Obviously, adjustments are made for injuries, luck, offseason improvements or declines, coaching changes and the like, but those base power rating numbers factor in what happened in 2013 very heavily.

In this week’s Vegas Wiseguy Report, I’ll pass along a tidbit or two from each of the 16 AFC teams in regards to last year.  My focus is on things that are NOT likely to repeat the same way in 2014.  I’ll offer similar Read more

Here's a good reason why you shouldn't mail in a winning sports betting ticket

05.23.2014     07:13 AM     Printer Friendly
Good article from Betting Talk on a Nevada postal worker who stole a handful of winning sports betting tickets worth nearly $10K. This apparently isn't the first time a mailman has tried to pull off the stunt. 


“The NGC has been very apologetic and assured me that I would receive my money back,” said Fortuna, who added that this was the first time he’s ever had an issue mailing in winning tickets.

Nevada pushes for gambling on political elections

05.22.2014     07:53 AM     Printer Friendly
Seems like they've been talking about this for years but Nevada appears close to allowing bettors to wager on political elections.


"It's already going on," Segerblom said. Nevada could make money as the only state to permit the betting on presidential and other federal races. It would not apply to local state races.

Eating a hot dog in Las Vegas is about to get a lot cooler

05.21.2014     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly
If you've ever been to Chicago and drank more than five beers in a sitting there is a distinct possibility you closed out your night at the famed Weiner's Circle. For those not in the know, it is hole-in-the-wall hot dog stand south of Wrigley Field that caters to drunk idiots by swearing at them and serving great food. The good news is Weiner's Circle is branching out with three new locations scheduled to open this summer in Las Vegas. Hopefully they will have a similar ambience to that of the Chicago location. FYI, the video is NSFW.

NFL Handicapping: Oddsmaker says Tampa Bay Buccaneers are sexy pick

05.20.2014     07:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
LVH Sportsbook director Jay Kornegay says the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the first "wise guy" team of the year. Last year the Bucs were lined at 7.5 wins but fell well short at 4-12. LVH opened this year's number at 7ov-120.


“The Bucs have improved tremendously,’’ said Jay Kornegay. the Las Vegas Hilton’s sports book director. “In fact, I called the Bucs the first ‘wise guy’ team of the year. They’ve made a lot of improvements with Josh McCown and Lovie Smith has signed plenty of defensive free agents. They are a solid team and have plenty of potential.’’

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Previewing the Western and Eastern Conference Finals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Only four teams remain standing in the NBA Playoffs; one of whom will bring home the title less than a month from now.  For all the drama of the first two rounds, it’s an all-chalk Final Four, with the top two seeds from each conference battling for supremacy.

With both Conference Finals getting underway on Sunday and Monday, I’ll take a closer look at the two series.  The goal, as always, is to unearth hidden nuggets pointing towards future pointspread success while assessing pace and totals as well.

Predicting series success generally correlates strongly with predicting pointspread success when it comes to the NBA Playoffs.  But not as much as last year!  In 2013, the Final Four teams combined to go 31-11 (74%) against the spread in the first two rounds of postseason; each of the four teams cashing at a 67% clip or better.  The ‘surprise’ team of the four, Memphis, went 10-1 ATS through the first two rounds before covering only once while getting swept by San Antonio.

The ATS success of the Final Four teams in 2014 pales in comparison to 2013.  Between them, the NBA’s Final Four have turned a Read more
