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.

Ohio State at Michigan State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Michigan State -2 O/U 63.5
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

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

11.03.2014     12:00 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
We’re into November, just past the halfway point of the 2014 NFL season.  The truths that we learned in September aren’t proving to be quite so true now that the season has progressed.  In this week’s wiseguy report, we’ll take a quick tour around the NFC landscape, focusing on some hidden gems of knowledge from around the league.

With their dominating win on Sunday, the Arizona Cardinals are now 14-3 SU, 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 ballgames.  Only one of those three losses came by more than a field goal – their game at Denver, when third string rookie QB Logan Thomas was forced into action after injuries to Carson Palmer and Drew Stanton.

Yet the Cardinals statistical profile continues to confound wiseguy bettors.  Arizona went into their game at Dallas on Sunday with a -0.6 yards per play differential.  To put that number in perspective, the Oakland Raiders entered the weekend with a - 0.5 yards per play differential, the Jacksonville Jaguars had a -0.7 ypp differential.    And the Cards have been on the lucky end of the turnover equation this year, now +10 for the season after winning the Read more

NBA Gambling Update: Oklahoma City's Westbrook out but upcoming schedule favorable

10.31.2014     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly

Things have certainly gone south in a hurry for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kevin Durant is out, various role players are banged up, and now Russell Westbrook is on the shelf with a broken hand. The betting markets have already shown their anti-Thunder hand with big moves against the team their first two games. Perhaps they can weather the storm until Durant and Westbrook return thanks to a favorable upcoming schedule. From now through mid-December, when the duo is expected to return, the Thunder play 10 games against the Eastern Conference and avoid Western Conference contenders Portland, San Antonio, Dallas, and the Los Angeles Clippers. They also get Houston, Golden State, and Phoenix at home.

College Football Betting Preview: Maryland Terrapins at Penn State Nittany Lions

Maryland at Penn State
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Penn State -3 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Penn State -4 O/U 47.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Penn State -4.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Maryland

Not sure what to expect from Penn State following three straight losses including last week's double overtime heartbreaker against Ohio State. The Nittany Lions have now dropped three straight and with each passing week, their lack of offense and depth is being exposed more and more. After losing a pair of seniors to season-ending injuries, PSU is down to a startling 46 scholarship players. The current NCAA guidelines allow teams to have as many 85. Defensively, they've been able to hold up, but it's doubtful they'll be able to match their numbers the rest of the regular season. Offensively, the offensive line is extremely weak with no run-game to speak of (46 ypg vs. Big Ten). It leaves Read more

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

10.27.2014     12:39 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers 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

College Football Betting: Michigan's Brady Hoke well aware of massive pointspread

10.24.2014     09:18 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
More good news. Brady Hoke doesn't gamble. The Wolverines opened +15 and are now +17 across the board.

“Look, the only people who really care about that are gamblers. I don’t gamble,” Hoke said Monday. “That being said, we’ve been the underdogs before, and for us, it’s just going out there and playing football.”
