Super Bowl XLVIII Prop Bet: Doug Baldwin Total Receiving Yards

Doug Baldwin Total Receiving Yards
Recommendation: Over 39.5


Baldwin’s season averages won’t support this wager – hence some early Under money that drove this total from 40.5 down to 39.5 at several key books.   But with Percy Harvin on the field for the Super Bowl, it should open things up for Baldwin.  And Baldwin has become Wilson’s go-to guy down the stretch.  He had 63+ receiving yards six of the last nine games that he was involved in the offense (he  sat for most of their Week 17 regular season finale), including a six catch, 106 yard effort against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.  And this is the type of wager we can cash with a single big play!

Last season Teddy Covers and his clients CRUSHED the prop bets with a 10-1 record. For Sunday's Super Bowl XLVIII, he has nine props with analysis and a recommendation on the game's side. Get them all for only $49.

Below is what clients received with Teddy's prop bet package last year...

The old counterfeit poker chips in the toilet trick

Well, here's a subplot for Ocean's Fourteen. A man made counterfeit poker chips, used them in an Atlantic City poker tournament, disposed of said chips by flushing them down the toilet [insert lame joke about a Royal Flush], and of course got busted.

The incredible streak of Cincinnati unders came to a screeching halt in Sunday's 80-76 win at Temple. The 156 combined went 'over the 133.5-point total with nearly four minutes to spare. The under is now 13-2 for the Bearcats this season and 26-4 in their last 30 games. As I've stated many times, these low-scoring games for Cincy are largely based upon the defensive presence provided by Justin Jackson, who protects the rim and cleans the glass. Jackson injured his ankle early in the first half and did not return.

Nevertheless, the pace for another under looked decent at halftime when Cincy had a 36-26 advantage (1st half total was 62/62.5). But Temple's Dalton Pepper caught fire in the second half, burying seven 3's and scoring 27 of his 33 points. Cincy led by 19 early in the second half, but a triple by Pepper evened the game up with 25 seconds remaining. Mick Cronin's team pulled it out, though, and Sean Kilpatrick finished with 29 points. Jackson's status for Thursday's crucial AAC showdown at Louisville is very iffy. He wasn't able to play in a loss at the Yum! Center last year, either. Before Temple struck for 76 on the Jackson-less Bearcats, they had not given up Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Bettors gear up for Super Bowl XLVIII

01.27.2014     08:14 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Super Bowl time again; the moral equivalent of Christmas Day for sports bettors. Yet many of the professional full time bettors that I know are rather disappointed with the proposition betting opportunities this year – there’s simply not much low hanging fruit. The biggest and best sportsbooks (market leaders both here in Vegas and offshore) have learned from previous mistakes. Bad numbers do NOT abound in 2014.

Let me start with the game itself. The Super Bowl itself has been an underdog bettor’s paradise in recent years.  The Ravens won the Super Bowl last year as the underdog, beating the favored 49ers. The Giants won the year before as an underdog; knocking off the Patriots. In 2010, the Saints won straight up as a dog over Peyton Manning and the Colts. In 2009, the Cardinals covered the spread in a tight loss to the Steelers. In 2008, the Giants beat the favored 18-0 Patriots outright. The only favorite to win and cover in the last six Super Bowls was the Packers when they beat the Steelers in 2011.

The underdog trend in the Super Bowl goes back even further than that, with four consecutive dog covers from 2002 through 2005 Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: California Golden Bears at UCLA Bruins

California at UCLA -7 O/U 153
Recommendation: UCLA


UCLA brings a 15-4 straight-up record and an 11-7 against-the-spread ledger into Sunday night's home game against California. Steve Alford's team has thrived in the role of favorite, compiling a 10-3 spread record. They’ve won 12 of its 13 home games at Pauley Pavilion, producing an 8-4 ATS mark in the process. The only blemish on the Bruins' home resume is a nail-biting defeat against undefeated and top-ranked Arizona (79-75).

I backed UCLA on Thursday night when it cruised to a 91-74 win over Stanford as 5.5-point home chalk. Tony Parker enjoyed a breakout performance, as the Atlanta product scored a game-high 22 points and pulled down seven rebounds. Jordan Adams added 19 points, while Kyle Anderson chipped in with 13 points and 10 boards. Adams averages a team-best 17.5 points per game, but Anderson is the catalyst and most complete player for UCLA. Anderson has a very unique set of skills. Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Ottawa Senators at Washington Capitals

Ottawa -105 at Washington O/U 5.5
Recommendation:  Ottawa


Ottawa comes into Washington looking to get back on track after two straight losses at home.  Prior to those losses the Senators had been on a 6-1-1 run and playing tremendous hockey.  Coach Paul MacLean said, “Since the first of December we've been a pretty consistent team game in and game out.”  After having a day off of the ice on Sunday the Senators are recharged and facing a Washington team they have owned this season (6-4, 3-1 wins)…and since 2011. Washington has had some major problems as of late and things may get worse with Alex Ovechkin’s status in question.  Regardless if Ovechkin is in the lineup or not the confidence of the Capitals has been shattered.   Washington has struggled lately losing 11 of its last 14 games while finding zero consistency in goal.  Washington head coach Adam Oates has his hands full trying to create something out of nothing.  This is not a team that should be favored regardless of their home record.  Tonight is a case of too much respect given to Washington on home ice.  Read more

A perfect 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 Wise Guy Report: A trip down Super Bowl memory lane

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

Immediately following last night's NFC Championship, various offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks were quick to hang a line on Super Bowl XLVIII (Sunday, Feb. 2). Offshore, CRIS opened Seattle -1.5 while Pinnacle opened a pick 'em. Both shops opened the total at 47.5. In Las Vegas, LVH threw up Seattle -2 O/U 47 while the Wynn had Seattle -1 O/U 48.5. A majority of the early money has been on the Broncos who are anywhere from -1 to -2.5 offshore and in Las Vegas. The current market outliers are CRIS (Denver -2.5) and the Mirage (Denver -1). We'll keep you posted on any signficiant line moves leading up to gameday.

After missing back-to-back games due to swelling and soreness in his knee, Florida forward Casey Prather has been cleared to play Saturday at Auburn. However, UF head coach Billy Donovan told the media Friday morning that it's unlikely that Prather will play many minutes. The senior slasher is enjoying a breakout campaign, averaging a team-high 17.0 points per game. The status of freshman big man Chris Walker remains unresolved. Walker, a McDonald's All-American from Holmes Co. High School, has been practicing with the team for a month but is still awaiting word on his eligibility from the NCAA Clearinghouse. ESPN's Chad Ford currently has Walker as the No. 22 pick in his mock for this summer's NBA Draft.

Colorado took a huge hit in Sunday's 71-54 loss at Washington when Spencer Dinwiddie was lost for the season with a torn ACL. Dinwiddie was averaging 14.7 points, 3.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. Without Dinwiddie last night, CU lost a 69-56 decision to UCLA as a one-point home favorite.

Boston College was hoping to get center Dennis Clifford back soon, but that's not happening. The school announced that Clifford is out for the rest of the Read more
