NFL Preseason Betting Recap: Patriots, Ravens Stunned to Learn Dress Rehearsals Were Thursday!

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

It would have been bad enough if crappy teams from last year were playing like this. But, the first team offenses for the two teams who played in the AFC Championship Game last year had absolute debacles playing what was supposed to be “real” football Thursday night.

*The New England Patriots committed FOUR turnovers in the first half, and went 1 of 7 on third downs on their way to a 16-3 halftime deficit in Detroit. The score would have been worse, but the Lions were having their own issues…going 2 of 9 on third downs and missing a field goal try.

*The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens turned the ball over THREE times in the first half. Two of those were returned for touchdowns. Baltimore’s special teams also allowed a punt return TD to the Carolina Panthers. The halftime score was 24-7, with 21 of Carolina’s points coming on those non-offensive scores.
 
Not a great way for these AFC powers to set the tone for Read more

College Football Handicapping: Oklahoma State latest to commit to two-QB system

08.23.2013     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oklahoma State announced it will play two quarterbacks in Week 1's game against Mississippi State (at Houston). According to head coach Mike Gundy having a "no. 1" would be ideal if one were significantly better than the other. The problem is Clint Chelf (1,588 yards, 15 TDs, 6 INTs) and JW Walsh (1,564 yards, 13 TDs, 3 INTs) are both fairly even in terms of ability/results at this point.


"We're going to play both guys," Gundy said, referring to senior Clint Chelf and sophomore J.W. Walsh.

"That hasn't changed since the spring. Both quarterbacks have improved and I don't really know any other way to say it. It's something I've said for the last five months is both guys are doing a good job and we're glad we have them and they'll both get a chance to play."

"I don't like two-quarterback systems if we have one that's better than the other or one that's more experienced," Gundy said.

"Each year is different. Now we have two quarterbacks who

College Football Handicapping: The impact returning starters has on the betting markets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Yesterday I talked about Phil Steele's impact on the betting markets. Today I'll discuss another factor that influences early season games and that's returning starters. Who is coming back is probably to first thing bettors look at when evaluating a team during the summer. And based on my experience, teams with "a lot" of returning starters get a lot more love in the betting markets than those with only "a few” returning starters. Before I begin note that there are many different definitions of “returning starters” but for the sake of argument, we'll use Phil Steele as our reference point since his publication is such a common fixture among the betting community. Keep in a mind, A LOT can happen over the course of three months and I've seen multiple examples where returning starter numbers in June were a lot different than in September.

I used the very arbitrary numbers of 17 or more and 10 or less when breaking down our returning starter "extremes." That gives us 31 Read more

Congratulations to Syracuse's football team for winning the Biggest Crock of Shit of the Day award.


"He wanted to close it down because of the reporting on injuries," said Sue Edson, the Assistant Athletics Director/Communications for football. "We have a responsibility to make sure any injury that's out there does not influence betting lines."

NFL Preseason Gambling: Colts' starters expected to play at least a half vs. Browns

Cleveland at Indianapolis -2.5 O/U 42.5

According to ESPN, look for Indianapolis' starters to play the entire first half and potentially into the third quarter of Saturday's preseason game against Cleveland.


“Again, depending on how many plays we play will determine how we handle that situation,” coach Chuck Pagano said. “We always take it case-by-base. If we got a veteran guy that is over a number that we’ve deemed from a play count before the half, then we likely get a guy out.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC Preseason News and Notes

Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. During August, Teddy records every game, then watches every first half on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps simply don’t have. This week: AFC tidbits from the first two weeks of the preseason.

Cincinnati Bengals – Boy this team looks impressive; a potential Super Bowl sleeper in a conference that has no clear no. 3 behind Denver and New England to start the season. This was a top 10 defense last year, and looks even better this year, positively loaded with the addition of Super Bowl winner James Harrison from Pittsburgh. Harrison was run blitzing and making plays in the backfield, now the inside linebacker in a 4-3, a new position. Lots of blitzing, worth noting in preseason! The position battles here aren’t huge ones – a battle for the starting center job (Kyle Cook is the favorite to win it) and battles for the second and third receiver after AJ Green. No three-and-outs while Andy Dalton was on the field; he did a great job audibling out of bad situational play calls

Police spend a decade trying to take down Texas-based sports betting operation

08.16.2013     12:21 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
"Big" sports betting bust in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. According to reports, the investigation lasted more than a decade. Wait? They spent that long trying to take down what was essentially a group of white collar bookmakers? Note that a few of the dudes arrested were in their 70's. Of course the Plano Police Department stands to make $4.8 million from the case – a figure they probably spent and some in what we'll call Operation Waste of Time and Taxpayers' Money.


“The participants were just really intelligent college graduates, high-class people who enjoyed gambling and bookmaking,” he said. “They were trying to do this in a legal way. They found out the hard way that there is no legal way to do this.”











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.’
