Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling

10.06.2014     12:25 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among the staunchest opponents to legalized gambling in the United States.  Heck, the league famously refused an advertisement from the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Bureau for the Super Bowl, in an effort to appear like they are really anti-gaming. 

Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act attached to the Port Security Bill in October 2006.  The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that it’s enormously 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 deals that pumps nearly six billions 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 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Kent State Golden Flashes at Northern Illinois Huskies

10.03.2014     08:24 AM     Printer Friendly

Kent State at Northern Illinois
Saturday, 2 pm PT
CRIS Opener:
Northern Illinois -21.5 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: Northern Illinois -24.5 O/U 59
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Northern Illinois -20
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Under

The Northern Illinois Huskies will put their 27-game home win streak (the longest in the nation) on the line Saturday afternoon when they host the Kent State Golden Flashes. None of the players on NIU's 2014 roster have ever lost in Huskie Stadium. Kent State comes into this MAC showdown seeking its first win of the season.

The winningest program in Illinois and in the Mid-American Conference over the last decade, the Huskies have won two Mid-American Conference championships, four straight MAC West titles, and in 2013 made a MAC record sixth-straight bowl appearance. The Huskies' 49 wins since 2010 ranks third among all FBS teams behind Oregon and Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Iowa State Cyclones at Oklahoma State Cowboys

Iowa State at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma State -17 O/U 62
CRIS Current: Oklahoma State -17 O/U 65.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -17
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Oklahoma State

If you run through Iowa State's scores, it would appear that the Cyclones are on the upswing with a near upset of Kansas State, a win at Iowa, and a spread cover/push vs. Baylor. Statistics, however, tell a different story. The Cyclones were badly outgained in their three losses to the tune of 1578-911 and on the season, ISU is -1.77 ypc and -1.29 ypp. Only against Iowa’s anemic offense was ISU able to play a team "even" from a box score perspective.

I don't downgrade Oklahoma State at all with Daxx Garman under center. He's struggled at times with his accuracy but makes up for it with his big play ability (10.7 ypa). It's a good matchup against Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos

10.01.2014     02:31 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona at Denver
Sunday, 1 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Denver -8.5 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: Denver -7 O/U 48.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Denver -7.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

The defending AFC champion Broncos have yet to cover a pointspread in three tries this season; one of only three teams that are winless ATS (the Jets at 0-3-1 ATS and the Jaguars at 0-4 ATS are the other two).  But all three of the Broncos ATS defeats deserve at least a little bit of an asterisk attached to them.

In Week 1, Denver was in complete control throughout against the Colts, but Indy made a late rally thanks to a recovered onside kick to lose by only seven points as 7.5 point underdogs.  The following week, the Broncos were again comfortably in control against the Chiefs but a serious of penalties and ‘third and long’ conversions allowed KC to hang around.  The Broncos offense only had two drives Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: Stanford Cardinal at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Stanford at Notre Dame
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Stanford -2.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Stanford -1.5 O/U 44
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Stanford -1.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Notre Dame

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish looks to remain undefeated with their toughest challenge of the season, the Stanford Cardinal, on tap for Saturday. I successfully bet against Stanford as 8-point road favorites last week in its 20-13 win on the road against Washington. The Cardinal is definitely one of the contenders in the PAC-12 but I think they are somewhat overvalued in the betting markets as oddsmakers respect their defense but don’t realize how difficult it can be to move the ball at times.  They controlled most of the game vs. Washington with a 364-179 total yards edge but three turnovers and problems converting drives into points prevented them from putting the Huskies away. I Read more
