College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 1-24-2014

01.24.2014     10:49 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Can you really blame Michigan State junior Branden Dawson? When I'm forced to listen to ESPN analyst Dan Dakich talk (about anything!), I want to pull my hair out. Dakich is the Mark May of college basketball. I disagree with everything that comes out of his mouth and his delivery is the equivalent of fingernails screeching across the chalkboard. During a Thursday film session for the Spartans, Dakich was commenting on a mistake by Dawson, prompting him to slam his hand against a table. The result is a broken bone in his right (shooting) hand that will cause him to miss the next 4-5 weeks. Dawson averages 10.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. He also has 22 steals and 17 blocked shots. Senior center Adreian Payne (16.2 PPG, 7.7 RPG) has missed four straight games with a foot injury, and he is 'doubtful' Saturday vs. Michigan.

Minnesota's leading scorer Andre Hollins (16.2 PPG) suffered a sprained ankle in the opening minutes of this week's home win over Wisconsin. The results of an MRI were negative and there's a chance Hollins will play Saturday at Nebraska. He is listed as 'questionable.'

Alabama played without its second-leading scorer in last night's 68-62 Read more

Man sentenced for running high-end underground poker games

01.23.2014     08:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A man who ran one of New York's biggest illegal poker shops was sentenced five months. A-Rod was allegedly one of his patrons.


"Yeah, he plays once in a while but, ahhh, now he's in training," Ting said, promising to ask the gambler about taking a picture with the associate's son. "Can you call me when he's in New York? I want to introduce to my, my younger son," Vadim Trincher said.

"These games attracted celebrities, Wall Street financiers and other wealthy individuals, as well as individuals associated with organized crime."











Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News: Oddsmakers concerned about weather

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
More oddsmakers voicing their concerns about the potentially dicey weather conditions for Super Bowl XLVIII.


“With the game being in New York and the early forecast for below normal temperatures in the teens that certainly favors a defensive team and a running team,” said Jay Kornegay, sports book director at the LVH. “That would certainly be an advantage to the Seahawks.”

“If it’s big snow you can take all the handicapping and anything we thought we knew and throw it out the window,” said Johnny Avello, the book director at the Wynn hotel.

“There will probably be more money on Seattle if the forecast is for colder than normal with rain or sleet,” Vaccaro said. “But the biggest thing that will make the wise guys get off their wallets now is if Denver goes to 3 (point favorite). If it’s 85 degrees out they will still take plus 3 with Seattle.”

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

01.21.2014     07:49 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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

01.20.2014     07:15 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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

NFC Championship Betting Recap: Seattle snags win and cover over San Francisco

01.20.2014     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

A very evenly played battle came right down to the final possession. San Francisco got within striking distance for the game-winning touchdown. But, a stellar defensive play from Seattle forced an interception, and sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl to face the Denver Broncos.

Seattle (-4) 23, San Francisco 17
S. Fran: 308 yards, 5.7 per-play, 3 turnovers, 27% third downs
Seattle: 308 yards, 5.3 per-play, 1 turnovers, 36% third downs

Other Numbers
San Francisco: 161 rush, 14-24-2-147 passing, 14 drive points, 21 stat score, 25 sloppiness
Seattle: 115 rush, 16-25-0-193 passing, 17 drive points, 19 stat score, 14 sloppiness

That 308-308 dead heat in yardage tells you how even the flow of the game was. Stat score was right on the money in terms of total points. But, the turnover disadvantage kept San Francisco from getting quite where they were supposed to. Turnovers and sloppiness are a bit misleading because Seattle had a lost fumble that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Iowa Hawkeyes

Minnesota +9.5 at Iowa O/U 148.5
Recommendation: Minnesota


Minnesota has played three true road games, compiling a 2-1 record both straight up and against the spread. The Gophers won 74-59 at Richmond and 68-65 at Penn State. The only road setback for Richard Pitino's squad came at Breslin Center in East Lansing on Jan. 11. Minnesota took on Michigan St. as a 10.5-point underdog and led by a 41-36 count at intermission. The Gophers led by as many as 10 in the second half, only to go 13 minutes without making a shot from the field. Nevertheless, they rallied from a six-point deficit with more than two minutes remaining to force overtime. But Minnesota would fall apart in the extra session. In fact, Michigan State outscored the Gophers 16-4 in OT to pull out an improbable spread cover.

The point is that Minnesota should be 3-0 ATS on the road. This afternoon the Gophers take on an Iowa team coming off a big win. Although the Hawkeyes have had a solid week to get ready for their Big Ten rival, they could possibly fall into a letdown scenario here. Minnesota beat Ohio State on Thursday for a big win, but it has had two days to move past Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Charlotte Bobcats at Orlando Magic

Charlotte -1 at Orlando O/U 190
Recommendation: Charlotte


Charlotte’s goal heading into the season was to make the playoffs following the signing of Al Jefferson. Jefferson was a big investment for the Bobcats, and while highly questionable, with a $41 million three-year deal on the books tanking wasn’t going to be an option. They actually hired a good coach this time around in Steve Clifford who has gotten the team to pay attention to details on the defensive end of the floor. Everything was falling into place as Charlotte owned a solid 14-15 record around the holidays but the schedule stepped up, including a trip out west, and they dropped 9 of their last 11 games. But they’ve had an opportunity to catch their breath and I feel like they’ll be able to regroup for tonight’s contest. Meanwhile, the Magic are a flat-out poorly coached, bad basketball team. They own a 10-29 record, and there’s no doubt this team doesn’t really care about wins this Read more

NFL Handicapping: NFC and AFC Championship Betting Notes

Back as promised to run the regular season drive point averages in matchup order. Will provide a few additional notes as well. The numbers you see below are from the regular season. I’ll make separate comments about what’s happened so far within the small sample size of the playoffs.

Drive points are those scored and allowed on drives of 60 yards or more, trying to get the best possible read on “true” offense and defense not polluted by cheap scoring. The first set of parenthesis shows strength of schedule rankings according to Jeff Sagarin of USA Today, and then Football Outsiders (in that order). The second set of parenthesis shows turnover differential from the regular season.

AFC Championship
New England: 15.4 on offense, 12.2 on defense (21-18 schedule) (+9 turnovers)
Denver: 21.9 on offense, 14.4 on defense (24-31 schedule) (even turnovers)

A little football feng shui there in the schedule rankings. Sagarin has them Read more
