A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

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

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early primer on betting Super Bowl 50

The Super Bowl 50 matchup is set.   In the end, second best didn’t cut it.  The team with the very best defense in the NFL this season – Denver – won a pair of tight home playoff games against banged up foes to return to the big game for the second time in three seasons.  The Broncos are set to face the team with the very best quarterback in the NFL this season – Carolina, with Cam Newton behind center; a Panthers team that finished with the best record in the league. 

The best quarterback vs. the best defense!  We saw this two years ago, when Peyton Manning set records with his play, but Manning tailed off down the stretch and the Seattle Seahawks elite defense controlled the flow right from the get-go in the biggest Super Bowl Blowout of the 21st century.

The irony here, of course, is that two years ago, Denver was here due to Peyton Manning, and they lost the Super Bowl to the league’s best defensive team.  Only two years later, Denver is here because THEY have the best defense in the NFL, facing off against an emerging yet elite dual threat quarterback.  That defense didn’t perform Read more

NBA Handicapping: Pacers claim to have practiced defense after historically bad effort

01.19.2016     07:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's hard to allow 247 points in regulation in back-to-back games, especially when neither opponent had Golden State printed on its jersey. That's the situation for Indiana as they limp into tonight's road game at Phoenix having allowed 118 to Washington and 129 last time out to Denver. This isn't the first time the Pacers stank up the joint defensively and called for a bounceback effort. Back in mid-December, they coughed up 131 in a loss to Warriors and then took down Miami 96-83 next time out. Of course the game following that, Indiana was blown out by Detroit, 118-96.


A day after describing his team’s defensive performance as “embarrassing,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel ran a “spirited” practice dedicated to that end of the floor.

“I thought we had better focus,” George said. “We were definitely tied

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Conference Championship Preview

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
March Madness has a lock on the Final Four terminology, but we’re down to the final four teams standing in the NFL Playoffs following a wild weekend of football.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll take a look at how the Final Four teams still standing this NFL season survived, and what their realistic chances of Super Bowl success are moving forward into the Conference Championship Games this coming weekend.

Denver was outgained by more than two full yards per PLAY against the Steelers.  It was not vintage Peyton Manning, to put it mildly: 37 pass attempts for 215 yards, with only two passes all afternoon gaining more than 15 yards.  If you were watching the game, you already know how many missed connections that Manning had with his receivers – no shortage of inaccurate passes and dropped balls.  With the exception of one explosive 34-yard run by CJ Anderson, Denver’s running game wasn’t much better.  Anderson and Ronnie Hillman’s other 30 carries combined for just 76 yards.

But the Broncos avoided mistakes, playing turnover free football; the first time as a starter all season in which Manning Read more

NFL Gambling: Pittsburgh's Brown ruled out, money continues to trickle in on Denver

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's crazy that there's not a full market on Sunday's Pittsburgh-Denver game but easy to explain once you check the injury report. Ben Roethlisberger's shoulder is currently being held together with scotch tape. The same can be said about DeAngelo Williams' ankle. And news came out this morning that Antonio Brown has been ruled out due to a concussion suffered in last week's brawl vs. Cincinnati. Most sportsbooks offering action on the game have Denver north of a touchdown favorite. Remember, Pinnacle opened this game Broncos -3 with a little bit of juice.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: New Jersey Devils at St. Louis Blues

New Jersey +160 at St. Louis O/U 4.5
Recommendation: New Jersey


The New Jersey Devils continue their Midwest road trip on Tuesday with a contest against the struggling St. Louis Blues. The Devils picked up a 2-1 win on Sunday after losing their last three contests while the Blues picked up a 2-1 victory of their own over the Los Angeles Kings after dropping six of their last seven prior games. St. Louis is dealing with a handful of key injuries, most notably the loss of goaltender Jake Allen, who's out indefinitely with a leg injury and defenseman Jay Bouwmeester (concussion). Along with the previous injuries sustained by wingers Magnus Paajarvi, Jaden Schwartz, Steve Ott and defenseman Carl Gunnarson, the Blues have had to call up several young players from the Chicago Wolves (AHL). Both teams have struggled on offense as of late which is the reason for the total opening at 4.5. This is New Jersey's fourth time in the last five games with a 4.5 total due largely in part to the Devils scoring three or fewer goals in 15 of their last 16 games. In those four previous games, the Devils went 0-3-1 O/U and are currently on a 1-7-3 O/U run. St. Louis has Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Bucknell Bison at Lehigh Mountain Hawks

Bucknell -1.5 at Lehigh O/U 154
Recommendation: Bucknell


Patriot League play has a ray of sunshine for Bucknell which has steamrolled their first four opponents by nearly 21 points per game. The Bison played admirably against the better non-conference teams they faced as well so perhaps it’s no surprise that the step down in class to league play has seen them flourish thus far. At North Carolina State, Bucknell shot 51.6% and lost just 99-86 and they also hung within eight of ACC member Wake Forest (lost 90-82) and lost by just four to Penn State 62-58. The high octane, 94-foot style of Bucknell has seen them become vulnerable on the defensive end allowing 1.03 points per possession. However, with four of the top six in their rotation shooting between 44-52.5% from the field, they’ve been able to easily outscore league opposition. Lehigh does not subscribe to the up-tempo philosophy but they’ve been dragged into it multiple times this season by teams who prefer running. The situation here of a home, conference game for Lehigh does suggest that they should somewhat be able to control the pace but not sure they can prevent Bucknell Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Evaluating the health of the remaining eight NFL playoff teams

01.11.2016     10:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wild Card weekend is in the rear view mirror, with all four road teams emerging victorious on the opening weekend of the NFL Playoffs.  One game was a blowout, with the Chiefs destroying the Texans.  Two games were coin flips that came down to last second field goals, with the Steelers making their field goal while the Vikings missed theirs, allowing Seattle to survive and advance.  And the fourth game was a close contest that turned into a blowout by the end of the fourth quarter thanks to a performance from Green Bay that was as good as anything that we’ve seen from the Packers since October.

The mainstream media will focus on the quarterbacks and the head coaches, because that’s what the mainstream media does.  In the mainstream world, Andy Reid; noted for a decade worth of playoff failures in Philadelphia, is now a genius because his team is on an 11-game winning streak.  Aaron Rodgers, off the worst statistical season of his career, is now back to his elite self; thanks to one playoff win against a banged up defense. 

Serious bettors know one thing about the NFL Playoffs – health matters!  Do the Read more

College Basketball Betting: UNLV parts ways with head coach Dave Rice

01.11.2016     08:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After losing five of its last six, UNLV decided what better time than the present to get rid of head coach Dave Rice. The Rebels had the talent and defense to not only compete but win what looks to be a watered down Mountain West Conference this year. But an inability to hold leads and win close games has them 0-3 in league play with three losses by a combined six points. Now, the team will look to assistant Todd Simon to help save a sinking ship. Simon's "promotion" however has been viewed by some as questionable, especially with veteran Max Good a part of the staff. Not much turnaround time with the Rebels playing host to New Mexico tomorrow evening.
