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.

College Football Handicapping: Golden Nugget GOY vs. CRIS - Week 7

10.06.2014     12:19 PM     Printer Friendly
Week 7's breakdown of Golden Nugget's Game of the Year lines vs. CRIS's current numbers. It's a great tool to spot changes in perception from oddsmakers and the betting markets. What's noticeable this week is the amount of respect road teams where getting during the summer. Alabama was -24 at Arkansas but now a modest -9.5. Same thing with USC -7.5 at Arizona but now only -3 and Auburn -9.5 to -3 at Mississippi State. LSU was -9 but now -1 in Gainesville against Florida. And remember when North Carolina had expectations attached to its name? How about +2.5 to +16.5 at Notre Dame? That's what another dismal start to the season can do to your power rating.

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

Oklahoma at TCU
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -5 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: OKlahoma -4.5 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma -6.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: TCU

Playing true to preseason projections, the Oklahoma Sooners have performed like legitimate national championship playoff contenders through the season's opening month.

However, like all teams hoping to ultimately land a spot in college football's inaugural version of the Final Four, the Sooners certainly have a handful of circled dates on their schedule. Those games that, at least on paper, pose the type of challenge that could derail the best laid national playoff plans.

One of those potential land mines comes Saturday when fourth-ranked Oklahoma travels to Fort Worth to tangle with the TCU Horned Frogs.

Under first-year co-offensive coordinators Doug Meachem and Sonny Cumbie, TCU, which is Read more
