College Football Betting News: Clemson's win over Alabama crushed the books

01.11.2017     10:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Clemson's win over Alabama was not an ideal outcome for Las Vegas sportsbooks.

 

“It was definitely our worst college football game ever, and I’m pretty sure it was our biggest loss in a single game,” William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich said.

“It’s the highest single-game handle I’ve ever seen, which proves that college is catching up,” veteran South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said. “It keeps telling me I’ve been wrong for 20 years saying that we can’t get much better and we can’t write more tickets. The public keeps telling me, ‘Jimmy, go sit down. You’re wrong.’

“The intriguing thing to me was we wrote more on that game than we did on the first NFL game of the weekend.”

NFL Betting News: Lack of upsets continues to hurt sportsbooks

11.28.2016     08:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a tough two weeks for Las Vegas sportsbooks in the NFL. From an ATS perspective, favorites are 16-11-1. But straight up, 24-4 which means moneyline parlays and various teasers where cashing like crazy. 


“We’re not getting a lot of upsets right now. The teasers and money-line parlays seem to continue to beat us. You need a couple of upsets every week. Luckily, the Buccaneers came through and upset somebody.”

Las Vegas sportsbooks look to get in on the Olympic betting action

08.03.2016     09:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For the first time since 2000, Las Vegas sportsbooks will be offering betting lines on various Olympic events.


“Any event that receives a lot of attention from the media, there’s a good chance that we could post it,” he says. “Whether it’s popular because of controversy or a great story and or an American competing for a gold medal.”

“We expect it to be very minimal,” he says. Also, he doesn’t expect to take any bets on rowing. In fact, despite the diversity of sport in the Olympics, Kornegay is certain that basketball, one of the boring old big four, will draw the majority of betting action this summer. “It won’t even be close,” he says.

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things aren't looking all that great for Las Vegas sportsbook CG Technology these days. It was recently fined by the Nevada Gaming Control Board for failing to correctly pay out winning wagers. Now news has come out that CEO Lee Amaitis will resign at the end of August. As of now, CG's sportsbooks (Cosmopolitan, Venetian, Palms and M Resort) will continue to operate though will be heavily monitored by a third party.


"The Board will not tolerate improper or incorrect payments to patrons by gaming licensees, and therefore takes this matter extremely seriously," Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman A.G. Burnett told the Las Vegas Sun, which first reported the settlement. "This settlement contains several harsh punishments and requirements for remediation that reflect those concerns."

SuperContest no longer 100 percent payback

06.27.2016     09:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Due to growth, the world famous NFL SuperContest will no longer offer a 100 percent payback. Instead, the Westgate will take 8 percent to cover the cost of running the contest.


“I know it’s not something that’s looked upon in a positive way, but we just can’t have a loss leader,” Kornegay said. “We’re not looking to make it profitable, but we’re trying to cover our expenses. We thought this number is fair.”

“We reviewed the contest over the offseason, and the numbers were not really flattering,” Kornegay said. “When we had 400 contestants, it wasn’t that big of a deal. But as it escalated in growth the past four or five years, the costs have really grown.”

MLB newest league to consider Las Vegas for expansion

06.22.2016     08:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
What is with everyone wanting to set up shop with a professional sports team in Las Vegas? The NHL is giving it a go, the Oakland Raiders are efforting, and now MLB is saying it "would not disqualify" Sin City -- whatever that means.


“I think the whole, ‘You can’t go to Vegas because there are casinos there,’ we passed that by a long time ago. There’s casinos all over the place. I see Las Vegas as a viable alternative. I would not disqualify it just because of the gambling issue.”

NHL yet to mention anything about betting on Las Vegas' expansion team

06.16.2016     10:17 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Now that the NHL has approved an expansion team in Las Vegas, everyone is waiting to hear what the league will say about local sportsbooks taking wagers on their games. So far, it hasn't come up, though the NHL has plenty of time (over a year) to raise a stink about it. 


“I haven’t had any conversations with the NHL, and it would certainly be out of the ordinary if that were to occur,” Chairman of the Nevada Gaming Control Board A.G. Burnett said Tuesday. “It seems to me that a lot of the sports leagues are seeing that professional sports can thrive without any issues in a well-regulated betting environment.”

“I certainly would be disappointed if they submitted that request,” Kornegay said. “I believe we would be sending the wrong message by doing so. I think it would be best for the games to be on the board. How awkward

Las Vegas earns NHL franchise

06.15.2016     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You did it, Sin City. You managed to snag a professional hockey team. Up next is somehow making it work, which according to some, won’t be easy.


"This could be a watershed moment for our community and sports in Southern Nevada," said Jonas Peterson, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance. "Having a professional hockey team will not only boost our economy, but also our sense of community pride."

But it’s asking a lot for Las Vegas to support a major league team when it’s struggled to support pretty much every minor league team that’s tried to play there. If the city has some positives, it also has some negatives, like irregular working hours, middling public transit and abundant competition for the entertainment dollar, which may depress sports attendance.
