NFL Gambling News: League may do away with extra points

01.21.2014     08:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Fear not NFL gamblers, you may never have to worry/bitch/thank a higher power about a missed PAT again. The NFL is considering abolishing the act in the near future. Kickers were a near automatic 1,256 for 1,261 (99.6%) in 2013. One proposed solution would be for touchdown to be worth seven points and a successful two-point conversion worth eight. If the two-point conversion should fail, then the score would be worth only six.

A perfect match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable. The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers. From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deal that pumps more than three billion dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more

Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Sportsbooks cautious on prop bets due to weather

01.21.2014     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sounds as if Las Vegas sportsbooks are going to sit on some of their Super Bowl XLVIII prop bets with the weather being such an unknown at this point.


“Everything, except for the basic stuff, is going to pushed back a day or two so we can get a much more clearer picture of what the weather is going to be like,” Jay Rood, sports book director at the MGM Mirage, said in a telephone interview from Las Vegas.

“We’ll see what the weather is looking like at that time and make our numbers based on that,” Sherman said by phone. “Every day we’ll just check it and if it looks like things are changing, we’ll make the necessary adjustment. We’d rather it be nice conditions and hopefully not have an effect on the game as far as causing more turnovers or if a quarterback is having trouble throwing the ball in windy conditions.”

Super Bowl XLVIII Betting: Three straight scores prop bet history

01.20.2014     01:10 PM     Printer Friendly
One of many prop bets that always draws interest from bettors is Will There Be Three Straight Scores? We went back on got the results of every Super Bowl and found that three straight scores occurred 33 times (70.2%). There was a 22-year stretch where it occurred 20 times but the trend has cooled off of late with just five of the last 10 Super Bowls featuring three straight scores. Most sportsbooks offer anywhere from -180 to -200 on the "yes" and +150 to +160 on the "no."

Super Bowl XLVIII Gambling News: LVH plans on having around 400 prop bets

01.20.2014     12:52 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
ESPN's Chad Millman got the scoop on how LVH Sportsbook is prepping for its Super Bowl XLVIII pro bets. There are expected to be around 400 props.


"We start prepping in the weeks ahead by working on teams we think are going to win. This year we picked the Broncos and the Seahawks. So, for example, we are thinking about what three defensive players on each team we will list as having the most tackles for their team," Kornegay said. "It will take a solid three straight days of putting our full attention to them to get it done. Twelve hours, non-stop. There is a lot of double-checking. We have three guys whose job it is just to look at the betting sheets and make sure there are no mistakes with the numbers. Then we have to input all of these bets into our computer so they can go up on the board for the public to see. We have eight boards and they will rotate every 20 seconds, since we can't fit every prop up there at once."

All-Time Super Bowl Betting Results 1967-2013

01.20.2014     07:37 AM     Printer Friendly
Below are the all-time Super Bowl betting results dating back to 1967. Only six times have we seen the team to win fail to cover the pointspread. Overall, favorites are 26-20 against the spread (the 1982 Super Bowl was lined as a pick 'em) but underdogs have been the play of late with nine of the last 12 taking the money. In terms of totals, the UNDER was the way to play it back in the late 60’s and early 70's. The 80's and 90's trended OVER the total but it has shifted back towards the UNDER with six of the last nine winning.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: A trip down Super Bowl memory lane

01.20.2014     07:15 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On the one hand, the Super Bowl is just another game for a professional bettor.  On the other hand, the Super Bowl has two major differences.  First and foremost are the prop bets; quite literally hundreds of wagering opportunities that allow bettors to wager from everything on the coin toss and the length of the national anthem to whether Russell Wilson will throw more touchdown passes than Manchester United will score goals on Super Bowl Sunday.  I’ll write about those next week.

The other biggest difference between Super Bowls and other games?  Simple – the Super Bowls stand out in our memories; every one of them.  I’ve been in Vegas since the 1998 football season, and I can tell you where I watched every Super Bowl, what the pointspread was and who covered. Thank you in advance for indulging me a brief trip down memory lane.

My first Super Bowl in Las Vegas was when the Broncos faced the Falcons as favorites of about a TD back in January 1999.  I watched the game in the stadium seating at the Imperial Palace racebook.  My handicap was simple, thinking Denver had a big edge having played in (and beaten) the Read more
