New Jersey offers profits to leagues to help combat point shaving

09.19.2014     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New Jersey has proposed that a small fraction of the revenue generated from sports betting go towards the "fight" against match fixing/point shaving.


“This could be a national model for sports betting,” they wrote. “When sports wagering is eventually legalized nationwide, this surcharge would generate millions of dollars a year for the leagues. Given your openness to sports betting, we hope that the NBA and other sports leagues can come to an agreement with casino and racetrack operators on the collection and distribution of this surcharge.”











College Footbal Betting Preview: UCF Knights at Missouri Tigers

Central Florida at Missouri
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -10 O/U 56
CRIS CUrrent: Missouri -10 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Missouri -5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Central Florida

I appear to have a totally different opinion on Missouri compared to oddsmakers and other bettors. Last week Mizzou stood out as my top power ratings play of the week, yet the opening line reflected a much different opinion. From there the pro-Toledo and anti-Missouri money poured in and left Missouri -3 at game time. The dominant Tigers performance seems to have them back in the good graces of the betting community because they are listed at -10 this week in a game which my power ratings show them to be -5.

Central Florida is off a bye week after losing a close one to Penn State in Ireland in Week 1. The extra time has helped to heal injuries for key personnel like starting RB Read more

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says legalized sports betting will happen

09.05.2014     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver spoke positively about the prospects of nationwide legalized sports betting.


"If you have a gentleman's bet or a small wager on any kind of sports contest, it makes you that much more engaged in it," Silver said. "That's where we're going to see it pay dividends. If people are watching a game and clicking to bet on their smartphones, which is what people are doing in the United Kingdom right now, then it's much more likely you're going to stay tuned for a long time."

"It's inevitable that, if all these states are broke, that there will be legalized sports betting in more states than Nevada," Silver said, per Bloomberg.com. "We will ultimately participate in that."

CFL Betting News and Notes Week 7

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are my Week 7 CFL News and Notes as we examine each team from a betting perspective.

Toronto Argonauts (2-4 SU, 2-4 ATS)
Toronto comes off its bye week to host Winnipeg and BC this week, playing two home games in a five-day span. It will be interesting to see how the Argos deal with this odd scheduling quirk. They aren’t any healthier at wide receiver but perhaps the extra week to prepare and practice can allow veteran quarterback Ricky Ray to gain some semblance of chemistry and cohesion with his new pass catchers.

Montreal Alouettes (1-5 SU, 1-5 ATS)
Montreal simply can’t compete with any good team in the CFL right now until its gets some sort of traction offensively. The Alouettes lost 33-23 to the Edmonton Eskimos at home last week in a game that could have been much worse but Edmonton clearly took its foot off the gas pedal after a 30-8 halftime lead. Quarterback Troy Smith struggled but he’s not the only one to blame. They can’t run the football, no receivers are getting open downfield, the offensive line isn’t holding up, and their play calling has been atrocious. Montreal Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sportsmemo Handicapper Erin Rynning was featured in a recent ESPN Insider article about the state of the NBA betting markets now that LeBron James in headed back to Cleveland. As of late last week, LVH (which is now the Westgate Superbook – more on that in another blog), had the Cavaliers in the 3-1 and 4-1 range to win the title.

NBA Handicapping: Bettors play guessing game with LeBron's destination

07.08.2014     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As nauseating as it is to follow the coverage of LeBron James' free agent saga it has had an impact on the betting markets. Anticipating a potential move back to Cleveland a few Las Vegas bettors jumped in on the Cavs to win next year's NBA title. The MGM reportedly took a dime bet that helped drop the line from 40-1 to (geesh) 10-1. A slightly less knee-jerk reaction at LVH with Cleveland's odds now 30-1 after opening 60-1. Note that the MGM was the same sportsbook that at one point had the USMNT at 10-1 to win the World Cup.


"They are our biggest liability right now," said MGM VP of Race and Sports Jay Rood. "We took a dime ($1,000) on them at 40-1."

NBA Gambling: LeBron James' next move impacts sportsbooks and bettors

06.25.2014     01:59 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following news of LeBron James’ willingness to test the free agent waters, a few sportsbooks were quick to pull down their 2015 NBA future odds.


"When a player like LeBron decides to change teams, it not only affects the status of the Heat, but the entire NBA," said John Avello, the head of the race and sports book at the Wynn. "I have to close everything to evaluate. If he leaves the Eastern Conference, it makes an additional handful of teams a contender."
