College Basketball Betting Free Play: Charlotte 49ers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

Charlotte vs. South Carolina -2.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Over

If you've watch any college basketball this season you'll notice a lot of low scores and game going under the total. The betting markets are pretty much blind betting every game under the total off of the opener. Any rightfully so as slow pace, lack of fouls, and zone defense seem to be the new trend, especially in power conference play. This however presents opportunities to play overs on cheaper prices when you can find games that project to play fast with so-so defenses. I think we have the with South Carolina and Charlotte. The 49ers are the quintessential over team: good offense, fast pace, average defense. We saw it yesterday when they produced 166 points in regulation against Penn State (Charlotte won 106-97 in 2OT). The Gamecocks meanwhile have played three relatively slow paced, low scoring games against North Florida, Baylor, and Cornell. North Florida runs but doesn't match up well vs. bigger more athletic teams. Baylor and Cornell tend to play slow. Frank Martin's team typically play at an above average pace and while projected to be a better defensive team they still grade Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Northern Illinois Huskies at Ohio Bobcats

Northern Illinois at Ohio
Tuesday, 5 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
Northern Illinois -4 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Northern Illinois -2.5 O/U 50.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Northern Illinois

The Ohio Bobcats play host the Northern Illinois Huskies tonight on ESPNU. The Bobcat faithful will participate in a blackout at Peden Stadium at the team looks to become bowl eligible for the sixth straight year. The Huskies also have something at stake; a win this week and next week vs. Western Michigan will earn them a spot in the MAC Championship.

The Huskies have won 41 of their last 42 games when allowing 24 points or less; a stat that could come into play with the temperatures in Athens projected to be in the 20’s with a chance of snow flurries. The NIU offensive line, which features five players with 151 combined starts, has not allowed a sack in five games this season. They Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Florida Panthers at Los Angeles Kings

Florida at Los Angeles -185 O/U 5
Recommendation: Under

Two of the biggest under teams in the NHL meet up tonight in LA as the Florida Panthers visit the Kings.  These teams have played their last five meetings under the total.  The Panthers have proven throughout the year that scoring goals consistently is a tough task but they also limit their opponents on opportunities.  Yes, Florida has been great offensively over its last four games, but the pace and matchup tonight against the Kings will send them back to reality.  The Panthers not respond well to teams that grind along the boards.  The Kings are the prototypical grind-it-out squad that beat you with depth and strength along the boards.  Los Angeles averages just 2.44 gpg and allowed only 2.11 gpg so don't expect the Kings to run over the Panthers either.  The return of Kopitar into the Kings lineup has helped on offensive end of the ice, but more importantly on the defensive end as well.  Having that big body presence in the lineup makes this defense even more formidable.  Both teams are relatively healthy so I expect a tight checking, low scoring Read more

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

11.17.2014     08:20 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers 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

NFL Gambling Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at Green Bay Packers

Philadelphia at Green Bay
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Green Bay -5.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Green Bay -6 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Green Bay -5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Philadelphia

Green Bay is coming off a near perfect game, absolutely annihilating the Chicago Bears from start to finish.  Aaron Rodgers was at his best, tying the all time NFL record with six touchdown passes before halftime.  "We just kind of got things going our way. The line did a good job of giving me time to extend plays. If you extend plays, you look down the field and there's Jordy Nelson. He made some nice catches." That win improved the Packers record following a bye week under Mike McCarthy to 9-0 ATS. 

The last time the Packers played a near perfect game (destroying Carolina), they followed it up with a clunker the following week in New Orleans.  Following another near Read more

College Football Gambling: Oklahoma saying right things following Baylor embarrassment

11.13.2014     06:39 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Playing for pride is not something you often hear associated with Oklahoma but after last week's 48-14 loss to Baylor, the Sooners have three losses and two non-descript games against Texas Tech and Kansas upcoming before what is likely to be a ho-hum Battle of Bedlam. The team of course is saying all the right things heading into Saturday's game at Texas Tech. No line yet to do the questionable status of Sooners quarterback Trevor Knight.

"You have to win," defensive lineman Chuka Ndulue said. "That's the mentality. Because your goals are out the window now, it doesn't mean you have to go out there and give up on everything. There's still some pride that goes around the team. We want to accomplish finishing the season off on a high note and that's what we are going to do."

Nebraska at Wisconsin
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Wisconsin -6 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -6 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Wisconsin -4
OTTO Sports' Recommndation: Under

Big battle in the Big Ten with Nebraska and Wisconsin both 4-1 in league play and in the hunt for the West Division title. This time of year we as bettors have a tendency to focus in on the conference-only statistics but in this case, because of strength of schedule, it’s hard to conclude just how good these two team are.

Wisconsin is currently a ridiculous +2.93 ypp in conference play; the type of stat you see attached to national title contenders which this team is not. The reason of course is UW's super-soft schedule. If you were to name the top four teams in the Big Ten outside of Wisky you'd probably come up with Ohio State, Michigan State, Nebraska, and Minnesota. Wisconsin hasn't Read more

CRIS Opener: TCU
-6 O/U 60.5
CRIS Current: TCU -6 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: TCU -5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Kansas State

Kansas State and TCU square off in a pivotal battle of 7-1 teams looking to not only keep pace for the Big XII crown but also stay in the hunt in the hotly contested four-team playoffs.

Kansas State has gotten progressively better this season with current streaks of 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS. Since losing at home to Auburn, K-State has beaten UTEP, Texas Tech, Texas, and Oklahoma State by a combined margin of 174-55. They also took down Oklahoma, 31-30, as TD+ road underdogs.

Statistically, KSU has the best defense in the Big XII: 18.6 ppg (12th nationally), 321 ypg (16th) and 4.9 ypp allowed. It’s a great matchup against a TCU offense that has been executing like a well-oiled machine for much of the Read more

Detailed story about massive Texas sports betting operation

Extensive article on what they called the "biggest illegal sports betting ring in Dallas." Worth a read.

"Hey, why don't you come in?" Merkow told the possible new business partner. "You can make all kinds of money once you put it on the Internet. We'll split the profits 50-50, or we can do it 25-75, whatever you feel comfortable with." The bookie agreed to start using Global to place some layoff wagers -- hedge bets made by a bookie with too much action on one side.

CRIS Opener:

CRIS Current: Michigan State -3.5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Michigan State -1
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Michigan State

Huge implications attached to this game with the most recent Playoff Committee top 25 poll ranking Michigan State at #8 and Ohio State #14. It essentially makes this an elimination game. Winner here also has the inside track on representing the Big Ten Eastern Division in the conference championship game. Each side enters on a six game straight-up win streak (OSU 5-1 ATS, MSU 4-2 ATS) and playing their best football of the season.

It seems as if Ohio State’s J.T. Barrett has made injured starter Braxton Miller’s name basically disappear from the minds of college football fans and media across the country. It’s true that unlike last season Read more
