College Basketball Betting Free Play: Arizona State Sun Devils at Washington Huskies

Arizona State -2 at Washington O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


Since the departure of Robert Upshaw we've seen Washington take on a completely different identity. The Huskies have been forced to play as many as four guards and an undersized forward and their defense has suffered as a result. Eliminated their game against offensively inept Oregon State and without Upshaw, Washington has allowed 1.20 points per possession in every game. In those four games, teams averaged 84.5 ppg. You also have to question where this team is at mentally after suffering back-to-back blowout losses. Arizona State has been up and down for much of the season but has shown much more ability to score after failing to crack 60 in its first four PAC-12 contests. Over their last seven games, the Sun Devils have averaged 74.1 ppg with a number of those games played at a fast tempo. Both teams aren't even close to being in the postseason discussion and with this being their second game in three days, I don't project much in the way of defensive intensity. Play it over.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Long Beach State 49ers at UC Irvine Anteaters

Long Beach State -1 at UC Irvine
Recommendation: Long Beach State


Heartbreaking home setback to Cal-Irvine last Saturday night figures to have Long Beach more than ready to get back in the win column here. The 49ers were up 55-54 and 10 seconds from being tied for first place in the Big West after sinking a three pointer but a UCI layup with 1.4 left in the game put them in a 7-2 tie for second place. Conversely, Santa Barbara rode a miraculous late second half surge to defeat Hawaii five days ago breaking a two-game losing streak. Despite the win, UCSB continued to show how vulnerable they are without star PF Alan Williams who has missed the last five games but is nearing a return to the lineup. Even if Williams should go here in this contest, have to note the fact that the Gauchos were pummeled by Long Beach 69-53 with him playing 27 minutes (17 points, 9 rebounds) back on January 17. In that contest, the 49ers defense swarmed Santa Barbara allowing just 25% FG shooting and they also had a solid 47-35 rebounding advantage. The Gauchos strengths of rebounding and defense are equaled by Long Beach State which makes this a tough matchup for the hosts Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Tennessee Volunteers at Vanderbilt Commodores

Tennessee +6 at Vanderbilt O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Tennessee


Recent results suggest that Tennessee and Vanderbilt are headed in opposite directions but the reality is these two teams have played a lot of close, competitive basketball where the straight up results appear to be more random than anything. The Commodores enter off back-to-back wins, including a blowout over a wounded South Carolina squad. The Vols meanwhile have lost four of five but those defeats came by margins of 6, 5, 5, and 3. I'd be concerned if this team was getting outplayed but the level of effort is still there night in and night out, they just happen to come out on the losing end. Make no mistake, this team has flaws, particularly on offense but the current price indicates that Vandy is the better of the two squads which I'm not sure is the case. Consider this: Vanderbilt was laying -3 vs. South Carolina this past weekend and now -6 vs. Tennessee. The Gamecocks are for whatever reason still "respected" due to non-conference wins over Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Tennessee is void of any marquee wins but unlike USC, the Vols show up each and every night and have a Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Sports betting becoming part of mainstream

02.09.2015     08:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Something remarkable is happening in the world of sports betting right now; a strong push towards nationwide acceptance and legalization of our favorite pastime.  I moved to Las Vegas in 1998 and I’ve never seen anywhere close to the level of positive momentum that sports betting is enjoying here in February, 2015.  What has changed and why is it changing when it comes to broader attitudes about sports betting?  Read on to find out.

Over the course of the last few months, there has literally been a paradigm shift is how sports betting is viewed nationally.  I did a TV interview for PBS Newshour before the Super Bowl; an interview that was excerpted in a nine minute piece on the national nightly news about sports betting here in Vegas and across the country from a fairly conservative news organization.  If that’s not an indicator that sports betting has moved to the mainstream, I don’t know what is!

New NBA Commissioner Adam Sliver spent many of his formative years as a league administrator overseas as the league’s deputy commissioner.  His quote from David Purdum’s excellent article in ESPN The Magazine Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Kansas State's up-and-down season continues

02.05.2015     01:08 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Man, Kansas State is a mess. After starting the season 7-7, the Wildcats reeled off five wins in six games to reposition themselves as a potential NCAA Tournament squad. Less than two weeks later, K-State is off three straight losses and arguably their best player, Marcus Foster, has been suspended. Foster has been in and out of Bruce Weber's doghouse for much of the season and while he's been an obvious distraction to the team, the Wildcats don't bring much to the table without him. Last night, without Foster, the Wildcats managed only 47 points in a 17-point loss to bottom feeder Texas Tech. Something has to give on Saturday as KSU plays host to an equally toxic Texas squad that has dropped four straight.


“Our whole team, we have been plagued from the start of the season by immaturity, by a lack of discipline and a lack of consistency,” Weber told reporters after the game. “That has been on and off the court, all year. I gave them a sheet of paper at the beginning of

Silver reaches out to buddies about sports betting

02.03.2015     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver apparently reached out other professional sports leagues to get their opinions on sports betting. Can you imagine the phone call to the NFL?


Silver: "Hey, Rog, it’s Silver. How's it going?

Goodell: "Not bad, bro. Did you see the Super Bowl? We crushed it!”

Silver: "Yeah, I caught bits and pieces. So, I was calling to see if you wanted to discuss this whole sports betting deal. Seems like something we could potentially cash in on."

Goodell: "Umm, you know how I feel about that stuff. We have to maintain the integrity of the game."

Silver: "But you obviously see the impact of fantasy sports; it's essentially gambling without the label. Imagine what we could go with both!"

Goodell: "Listen, you know I'm all about making money. And the whole integrity thing? Yeah, I could really care less. But if we change our stance on this we'll come off looking like fools."

Silver: "Roger,

College Basketball Gambling: Georgia heads to Kentucky without best player

02.03.2015     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Huge blow to an already short handed Georgia squad as Marcus Thornton (concussion) is expected to miss his second straight game. Without Thornton, the Bulldogs shot 11-of-50 in Saturday's 17-point loss at South Carolina.


"We missed Marcus' scoring and rebounding for sure, but we missed his leadership more than anything," coach Mark Fox said. "We just seemed disjointed on offense and that was disappointing. We are a team that can't afford to have two or three of our shooters have off nights. We'll need to put this game behind us and get ready for the next one."

Las Vegas sportsbooks make small $3.2 million profit on Super Bowl XLIX

02.03.2015     06:00 AM     Printer Friendly
It was a profitable Super Bowl for Las Vegas sportsbooks but a far cry from last year's 16.5% hold. The Patriots/Over outcome wasn't ideal but combined with prop bets, Vegas sportsbooks pulled in over $3.2 million (2.8%). The $115 million wagered was second all-time to last year's $119 million.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Looking for NBA teams to bet on

02.02.2015     08:22 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror, and MLB season is still two months away.  That means we’re In the heart of basketball season right now.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report I’ll take a look at a handful of NBA teams that offer legitimate bet-on potential as we approach the All-Star break.

The Cleveland Cavaliers spent the first half of the campaign disappointing their backers every bit as much as their fans.  In fact, the Cavs ranked among the very worst NBA teams against the spread, with a dismal 13-26 ATS mark in their first 39 games.  LeBron James was ailing, Kevin Love looked lost, key low post presence Anderson Varejao went out for the season with an Achilles tear and first year head coach David Blatt was under constant scrutiny, on the hotseat less than half the way through his first campaign.

The return to health of LeBron and a couple of trades have turned things around completely in Cleveland.  The Cavs have gone 10-0 SU, 9-0-1 ATS in their last ten ballgames; orchestrating a complete turnaround on the defensive end of the floor with former Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov anchoring the low Read more

Vanderbilt at Texas A&M -5 O/U 127.5
Recommendation: Texas A&M


Despite winning five straight and covering four of five, there appears to still be a bit of value on Texas A&M as it plays host to Vanderbilt this afternoon. The Aggies are a veteran squad that is on the upswing after a not-so-impressive showing during non-conference play. Wins at LSU and Tennessee really grabbed my attention and last time out, they completely controlled the game in a 10-point win at Auburn. “I knew we were mentally prepared as a team because our approach was different,” said junior guard Danuel House. “Every player was locked in and was in tune to the game and there wasn’t a lot of chatter. We got a taste of winning and we like the taste of success. The scary thing is we worked so hard to get here, let’s not get too complacent and just let it slip from under our feet. Winning on the road just boosts the crowd for when you get home.” Vanderbilt is a very young team and has competed well in most of its SEC games. But you can see the tough losses (six straight) and mid-season fatigue are starting to wear on this Read more
