UK offshore sportsbooks about to get drilled by taxes

08.16.2013     07:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s a popular move for UK sportsbooks to station themselves in online gambling safe havens like Gibraltar in order to avoid heavy taxation. But by late 2014 that could change as popular shops like William Hill and Ladbrokes will have to cough up some of the profits they earn off of UK bettors.  The government stands to make £300million.


‘It is unacceptable that gambling companies can avoid UK taxes by moving offshore, and the Government is taking decisive action to ensure this can no longer happen in the future.

‘These reforms will ensure that remote gambling operators who have UK customers make a fair contribution to the public finances.’

Let’s run some numbers from Thursday's four-game slate. We’ll take the matchups in rotation order…

(If you’re new to the site, “Drive Points” are those scored on drives of 60 yards or more. “Stat Score” is an estimate of what the final score should have been based only on rushing and passing yardage. The formula for that is 2 times rushing yardage…plus passing yardage…times 0.67…divided by 15)

Cleveland 24 (-1.5), Detroit 6

Total Yardage: Detroit 226, Cleveland 321

Passing Stats: Detroit 26-38-0-175, Cleveland 21-29-0-242

Turnovers: Detroit 0, Cleveland 0

Drive Points: Detroit 3, Cleveland 14

Stat Score: Detroit 12, Cleveland 18

Cleveland has a quarterback war, and a new coach who wants immediate results…which is often a great recipe for preseason success. Well, maybe not for the first half of the dress rehearsal game (next week at Read more

NFL Preseason Betting: Minnesota starters to play a lot more vs. Buffalo

Minnesota at Buffalo -3.5 O/U 43

Under head coach Leslie Frazier, the Minnesota Vikings haven't put much effort into Week 1 of the preseason (0-3 SU/ATS, 7.3 ppg). They are however 2-0 SU/ATS in both Week 2 games under Frazier (super small sample but worth noting). According to quarterback Christian Ponder, who took only two snaps last week, the offense will be getting a lot more work Friday in Buffalo.


"These next two games are crucial for us as an offense and for everybody because we're going to get a lot of snaps," he said.

NFL Preseason Gambling: Jets' Sanchez to start vs. Jaguars

Jacksonville at New York Jets -2.5 O/U 38.5

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will start again on Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This on the heels of what Rex Ryan called a "brutal" performance by rookie Geno Smith during yesterday's practice.


"It was brutal," Ryan said. "That was Geno's worst day, obviously.The ankle is part of it. That's way too many picks. He didn't look comfortable today. It was a bad day. ... We've seen guys have bad days, but this was a really bad day."

"I think it went just about as well as it could," Sanchez said of the first phase of camp. "I felt good. I thought I threw the ball well. I was accurate. I did my best to take care of the ball. I moved the offense down the field. I think we did that in spurts."

College Football Betting: Marshall's improvement hinges on defense

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot of things line up for Marshall to have a strong season – Rakeem Cato under center, 15 starters back, Phil Steele anointing the Herd as this year's most improved team. But before everyone goes gag-gag for this squad there's that pesky issue of defense. Last season, Marshall had without question one of the worst defenses in the country. Some of that can be attributed to the offenses ultra-fast pace, but when you allow 43.1 ppg, there's a problem. Doc Holliday brought in a new defensive coordinator, Chuck Heater who by name alone should have this unit on the upswing. According to reports, this year's stop unit fared well against the offense during a summer scrimmage.


“They’re a confident group,”  Head Coach Doc Holliday said. “Chuck [Heater] and that whole staff have done a tremendous job and there are a lot more athletes out there than there have been in the past.”

“It’s coming together real well,” Sparrow said. “In my career here we’ve been pretty light at the

College Football Gambling: Pitt names Savage starting quarterback

08.15.2013     07:14 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pittsburgh Panthers second-year head coach Paul Chryst announced that Tom Savage will be the team's Week 1 starter vs. Florida State. Savage replaced Tino Sunseri who when not taking sacks was fairly effective (21 TDs, 3 INTs). Savage started as a true frosh for Rutgers back in 2009 but then struggled with injuries, transferred to Arizona but sat out, and now finds himself as the starter despite not having played in a game since November of 2010.


Also today we’ve told the players that Tom [Savage] is going to be our starting quarterback. We like what he has done to this point. It’s a reflection of where Tom is at. We still think that Chad [Voytik] has made really good progress, but we feel really good and confident with Tom.”

Canadian Football League Week 7 Betting Recap

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here is my recap of Week 7 in the Canadian Football League as I provide a quick hitter, team-by-team analysis of the four teams that were in action.

Toronto Argonauts (4-2 SU/ ATS)
Toronto earned its second straight blowout victory in Week 7 as they absolutely humiliated the Alouettes in Montreal, 38-13. The Argos capitalized on a whopping six turnovers and put the game out of reach early in the first half with a flawless performance. Toronto scored 31 points in the first half including a terrific kick return touchdown by Chad Owens after a Montreal missed field goal. Toronto played a great game but at the same time, Montreal was beyond pathetic and showed no signs of any kind of spark following the sudden firing of Dan Hawkins. Quarterback Ricky Ray returned to the Argos after missing their last game due to injury. He was very efficient throwing for only 152 yards but completing 15-of-18 passes and three touchdowns. Toronto’s defense continued its resurgence having allowed just 44 points in their last three games (3-0 SU/ATS). The Argos have also played back-to-back games under the total and things may continue that way especially with the Read more

NCAA Football Gambling Update: Kentucky attempts to go up-tempo with suspect o-line

08.13.2013     07:45 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

We talked earlier this summer about Kentucky's move to a more up-tempo offense under first-year offensive coordinator Neal Brown. It's unlikely to be a smooth transition in part because the Wildcats look thin along the offensive line. UK ranks 106th nationally in terms of o-line returning starts (39). According to one article, Kentucky still doesn't know who will start at center.


"We do try and alleviate some pressure off the quarterbacks with the center," says offensive coordinator Brown. "As far as cadence, as far as calling protections. Those type of things."

"Just getting depth with the O-Line is a big deal right now," says Stoops. "We need to get more bodies and more guys ready. We're working hard in moving some guys around and getting them some experience. "

College Football Betting Notes: Trench play a key for Rutgers-Fresno State matchup

Rutgers at Fresno State -10

An in-game matchup to consider for Week 1’s Rutgers-Fresno State game. FSU's offensive line reportedly struggled during a recent scrimmage allowing 15 tackles for loss and seven sacks (some of which by the second and third string). Last season the Bulldogs allowed 29 sacks though attempted over 500 passes. They went the entire regular season without allowing more than three sacks in a game before surrendering seven against SMU in the Hawaii Bowl.


"Do we need to move a tackle in to guard? What do we need to do to get our best five out there?" DeRuyter said. "We're going to get together, look at this tape really hard and make some tough decisions about who are those guys."



Rutgers meanwhile feels it can take Read more

College Football Handicapping: Wisconsin switches to 3-4 defense

08.13.2013     06:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Under first-year defensive coordinator Dave Aranda (Utah State), the Wisconsin Badgers will switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 this season.


"There are only a handful of teams in the NCAA that run a 3-4, so it will be hard for teams to imitate us in scout team. Offensive lines aren't really accustomed to blocking 3-4s, so I think that will be nice for us."

"We're so much more attack oriented," added DL Ethan Hemer. "We attack and come off the ball and we make offenses dictate to what we do instead of dictating to what offenses do."
