NBA Gambling Free Play: Minnesota Timberwolves at Los Angeles Clippers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota +6.5 at LA Clippers O/U 210
Recommendation: Minnesota


My clients and I cashed an easy wire-to-wire winner with the T-wolves in New York last Sunday, a game where they were underdogs, yet led by 21 after one quarter, cruising to a nine-point road win.  We cashed another winner with Minnesota in their one point loss at Cleveland the following night. 

And, after that loss and a bad home loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, we cashed with Minnesota against Dallas on Friday.  And last night, Minnesota provided another right side cash for us in their wire-to-wire blowout against the Lakers.  That’s four winners supporting one team in the last ten days, and I expect us to cash another winner with them tonight!

Make no mistake about it – Minnesota is pretty darn good this year, in sharp contrast to where they’ve been since Kevin Garnett got dealt to the Celtics prior to the 2008 season.  They’ve got three Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC News and Notes from Week 10

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. Teddy watches games all day on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps don’t necessarily have. This week: AFC thoughts and opinions from Week 10.

Cincinnati Bengals - Five key starters are missing from this defense. Geno Atkins, Robert Geathers, Taylor Mays and Leon Hall are all on injured reserve. Rey Maualuga was out today, as was fellow LB Michael Boley. That's one heck of a lot of talent to be missing! So for this stop unit to shut down the Ravens for the better part of the last three quarters speaks volumes about their depth and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer’s schemes.

All the questions about Andy Dalton's ability to guide this team to postseason success continue to linger. Dalton won the AFC Offensive Player of the Month award in October, but here in November he could win the 'biggest downgrade of any QB this month' award. Dalton was awful last Thursday against the Dolphins and he was even worse today.

Dalton held the ball too long, taking sacks instead of making quick decisions. His accuracy Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Carolina Panthers at San Francisco 49ers

Carolina at San Francisco
Sunday, 1 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
San Francisco -6.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: San Francisco -5.5 O/U 42.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Francisco -8
Erin Rynning's Recommendation: San Francisco

On the surface, the Panthers are as hot as any team in the NFL.  They’ve won four straight and in the process outscored their opposition 130-48.  However, the strength of schedule over their four-game win streak was sketchy at best.  The Vikings, Rams, Buccaneers and Falcons own a combined record of 7-27.  No question the Panthers are still a quality football team, one that I’ve bet numerous times over the last couple of seasons.  Their defensive front has developed into one of the top units in the NFL and quarterback Cam Newton has solidified the offense while largely riding the running game. 

But this afternoon Newton will be tested in a major Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens

Cincinnati at Baltimore
Sunday, 10 am PT – CBS
CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -2.5 O/U 42
CRIS Current: Cincinnati O/U 44.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Baltimore pk
Brian Edwards’ Recommendation: Over

If Baltimore (3-5 straight up, 3-5 against the spread) has any hopes of getting back into the AFC North race, it desperately needs a win Sunday vs. Cincinnati. As of Friday, most books had the Bengals favored by -1.5 with a total of 44.

Cincinnati (6-3 SU, 5-3-1 ATS) has had a few extra days of preparation after losing a 22-20 decision at Miami last Thursday. The Bengals suffered the overtime defeat as 3-point road chalk.

Marvin Lewis’s team leads the AFC North with a 1.5-game advantage over second-place Cleveland. The Bengals had won four in a row before being knocked off by the Dolphins.

Even worse than the loss at Miami was the season-ending ACL tear sustained by Read more

CRIS Opener:
Miami -6 O/U 43.5

Rob Veno's Power Rating: Miami -7
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Virginia Tech

Huge ACC Championship Game implications here as these teams meet with the Coastal Division still up for grabs. At 3-1 inside the conference, Miami holds a one game edge in the loss column over 3-2 Virginia Tech and 5-2 Georgia Tech. Having already defeated the Yellow Jackets this season, all that stands in the way of a Miami rematch with Florida State in the ACC Championship game is a win here over Virginia Tech plus a victory either at Duke or home versus Virginia. Obviously this is their main hurdle. For Virginia Tech, a victory here propels them into undisputed first place in the Coastal as they would own tie-breaker victories over Georgia Tech and Miami. On deck for the Hokies are a home Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints

Dallas at New Orleans
Sunday, 5:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
New Orleans -6.5 O/U 52
CRIS Current: New Orleans -6.5 O/U 53.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New Orleans -7.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Over

Dallas can’t stop the pass, plain and simple.  Monte Kiffin’s Cover-2 defense has been an improvement over Rob Ryan’s stop unit from last year in one regard only – they force more turnovers.  Last year, the Cowboys finished the season creating only 16 takeaways in 16 games.  This year, the Cowboys have 21 takeaways through their first nine games and rank #2 in the NFL with a +10 turnover margin.

Drew Brees threw a pair of interceptions in an ugly loss at the Jets last Sunday.  This offense is clearly built for domes, not for outdoor venues.  They were held to just two field goals and one third down conversion after halftime, reminiscent of their road showing at Read more

Betting College Football Totals: Identifying Late Season Opportunities

11.07.2013     07:54 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Each year, the final third of the regular season features teams that finish on streaks. Those streaks are predominantly caused by one of three reasons: 1) a team is simply gassed and with no potential for post season play they let go of the rope, 2) they grow more cohesive, show incremental improvement and really hit their stride late in the year, or 3) the return or loss of key personnel due to injury creates great momentum or forces a team into a downward spiral. Here are four college football teams that appear to be headed for late season totals runs.    

Virginia – They’ve now played five consecutive overs due mostly to the erosion of their defense which has allowed at least 27 points in every game during the span and an average of 40.8. The offense has contributed to higher scoring games too as QB David Watford and the passing game has become a bit more dependable. Plenty of value has been given to over bettors in Cavs games as the last five have closed between 49 and 56. This week’s game versus North Carolina is currently inside that range again at 51. Not sure that the absence of Tar Heels’ quarterback Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils at Utah Utes

Arizona State at Utah
Saturday, 1 pm PT - PAC-12 Network
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -7 O/U 65
CRIS Current: Arizona State -7 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Arizona State -8
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Utah

Two teams headed in opposite directions provide us with value on the home side as Utah plays host to Arizona State off of a bye week. After not having to leave the state for the first six games of the year, the Utes lost back-to-back road tilts at Arizona and USC. If you look at their body of work you'll notice that they've been competitive in practically every game with close losses to Oregon State and UCLA. The Arizona game was a one score contest before the Wildcats sprung for a big run while trying to run out the clock. And last time out against USC, the Utes coughed up the ball four times in a game that was statistically even. And speaking of turnovers, that has been Utah's downfall Read more

College Football Betting: UNC's Renner out, Williams to start vs. Virginia

Virginia at North Carolina -13.5

North Carolina announced that senior quarterback Bryn Renner will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. That means sophomore Marquise Williams will be in charge of the offense. Williams' role has steadily increased – he started vs. Virginia Tech and played in each of the last three games. Williams doesn't have Renner's passing touch down field but he can run and overall the Tar Heels shouldn't lose a step offensively. UNC has managed to weather the storm of its 1-5 start with back-to-back wins. Their quest for a postseason berth is alive and well with Virginia, at Pittsburgh, Old Dominion, and Duke to close out the year.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NFC News and Notes from Week 9

Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. Teddy watches games all day on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps don’t necessarily have. This week: NFC thoughts and opinions from Week 9.

Dallas Cowboys – Dallas had faced four top notch QB's this year heading into the game: Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers and Matthew Stafford. All four threw for more than 400 yards against Monte Kiffin's defense. Here, Christian Ponder had consistent success throwing downfield. This defense just can't stop the pass, especially with DeMarcus Ware out again, negating any semblance of a pass rush. And there were no shortage of defensive breakdowns either – missed tackles, missed assignments and blown coverages.

Not impressed with the offensive line play today one iota. The Vikings got pressure on Tony Romo all afternoon. They signed former pro bowl guard Brian Waters out of retirement a few weeks ago as a desperation move, but he couldn’t stay healthy; already on IR. Back-to-back sacks killed a red zone chance here, forcing Dan Bailey's legs to get points, not Read more
