NFL Gambling: Westgate SuperContest announces changes for 2015

07.03.2015     09:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Westgate SuperBook announced some changes for the upcoming 2015 NFL SuperContest. One of which will be the top 50 entrants taking home cash.


"The SuperContest is more popular than ever and we expect another record turnout," Kornegay said. "It used to be that only those in Vegas and those really connected to the industry here knew about the contest and that you could enter from out of state. The more mainstream media like people on ESPN have talked about it and with more people learning about the contest through social media, that has led to these record fields. ... We don't know how big it can get."

IRS seeks tax form on winnings of $600

07.02.2015     08:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Filling out a tax form when you hit a royal flush on a video poker machine is mildly annoying. It's about to get worse. The IRS is proposing that the winnings limit be dropped from its current mark of $1200 to a mere $600.


"I think it would have a big effect on the overall experience for slot players, as it's very common to have jackpots over $600, and now they'll actually have to stop play and wait for the attendant to come over," said Chad Beynon, who covers gaming stocks for Macquarie.

"That does a few things. First of all, it's just a pause in the game that causes people to lose their momentum and maybe decide to go home," he added. "Second, people want to walk away after what they consider to be a big jackpot, and whereas before they would have played a couple more hours and not left until they hit a bigger jackpot, this is kind of the government telling you that you just won a lot of money."

Bettman says no way on Phoenix to Las Vegas move

07.01.2015     08:00 AM     Printer Friendly
So it seems at some point, Las Vegas is going to inherit an NHL team. But according to commissioner Gary Bettman, just don't expect it to be the Phoenix Coyotes.


Bettman told Morgan that the Post “was told the story was completely untrue. They ran it anyway. The story is garbage. Team is staying put.”

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas gaming regulators are putting together a bill that will allow slots to feature "an element of skill." Essentially they are looking to spice up the slots scene with more arcade-like games


“Really, what we are looking at is attempting to steer the state onto a new path, onto a new road, in terms of gaming,” he said. “Everyone here knows that we need a complete reinvigoration of slot games.”

NFL gets pissy over Fantasy Football convention in Las Vegas

06.10.2015     08:29 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It doesn't get anymore NFL than this. A bunch of players were slated to host a Fantasy Sports event at a Las Vegas casino but the league stepped in and kiboshed the whole deal. The reason? Because it was slated to take place at a casino which is a no-no according to the league. The real reason, as pointed out by one of the slated attendees, Tony Romo, was of course money. The NFL makes a shit-ton of cash off of fantasy football but reportedly didn't stand to make a dime, hence the cancellation.


"There's just far too many cases and it does make it sound sometimes that it's an issue about money, which is disappointing because we were just trying to get the fans to hang out with players."

Las Vegas sportsbooks to take syndicate bets

06.09.2015     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It was recently announced that Las Vegas sportsbooks will legally be able to take bets from "business" groups. It's an interesting move considering the number of operations that already limit individual players who win and/or bet big. The new law states that the group must maintain a bank account within the state of Nevada and are obviously subject to taxation.


"It will be a choice of the various books and their appetite for risk. The same way it is today," Lipparelli said. "They determine what level of risk they want to accept. It's their right to refuse service to anyone they wish, if they determine that somehow they feel that this is going to be too difficult, too risky for them, they may elect to stay out of it."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors show early opinions on Jets and 49ers

06.08.2015     08:36 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL futures market is heating up as the calendar turns to June.  Two teams in particular have seen significant action.  Money has poured in against the San Francisco 49ers, the #1 bet against team of the offseason, without a shred of debate.  And money has been flowing in support of the New York Jets. I did debate using the Minnesota Vikings as my top wiseguy bet-on team in early trading, but the markets have moved towards the Jets with a vehemence that Minnesota just can’t match.   In this week's Wiseguy Report, I’ll dive into the 49ers and Jets to see why the sharps have such strong opinions about their upcoming campaigns.

There’s no mystery surrounding all the anti-49ers money that’s been pouring in since the very first win totals were posted at CG Gaming back in February.  The markets hated the loss of hard driving, overachieving head coach Jim Harbaugh and they certainly don’t care for his replacement Jim Tomsula; a largely anonymous Niners assistant with no previous NFL head coaching experience (he did coach the Rhein Fire on NFL Europe for one season back in 2006).

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors discuss potential impact of new PAT rule

05.26.2015     07:39 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL has evolved into the most popular sport for both fans and bettors over the last half century in part because of it’s unpredictability.  The old saying attributed to NFL Commissioner Bert Bell (1945-1959), ‘On any given Sunday, any team in the NFL can beat any other team' has proven true over the years, even in the modern era. 

In September alone last year, the Dolphins upset the Patriots, the Titans won at Kansas City, the Chargers beat the Seahawks, the Bears beat the 49ers, the Bucs beat the Steelers in Pittsburgh and the Chiefs whipped the Patriots.  Each and every one of those games was a significant upset both SU and ATS.

Fans and bettors alike are quite comfortable watching a two-foot putt in golf, or free throw attempts in the NBA; not exactly the most exciting plays that either sport has to offer. The NFL has boring plays as well, most notably the extra point try.  NFL teams made their extra points more than 99% of the time last year, not exactly the essence of drama.

The league, in their infinite wisdom, just decided that the NFL extra point try was too boring.  Instead of doing it the way it’s Read more
