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

AFC Championship Betting Recap: Denver's defense dominates New England

Masters class performance from Peyton Manning in terms of moving the chains and driving the field. Denver just marched up and down at will, though they had a tendency to stall and settle for field goals in a way that kept things in the neighborhood of getting interesting.

Early in the fourth quarter, Denver was up 23-3…with all 23 points coming on drives of 60 yards or more. That’s 3 field goals and 2 touchdowns. The yardage advantage after the drive was 430-160. Denver was 7 of 11 on third downs…meaning they were basically converting EVERY third down until they got close (only 1 punt, which came on their first drive of the day).

Manning finished with 400 passing yards, a 74% completion rate, no interceptions, and no sacks. As sharp as it gets.

And, you also have to give masters class credit to the Denver defense…because shutting down Tom Brady  most of the day like that ain't easy! Though, Patriots fans have actually seen a lot of this through 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

NFL Gambling: Conference Championship early line moves and historical results

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A quick look at the early line moves for this weekend's NFL Conference Championships. Denver opened -7 offshore and -6.5 at LVH but has since been bet down to -4.5/-5. Seen a small move towards the over. The two teams met in Week 12 with the Patriots (pk) winning 34-31 in overtime in Foxboro. The Broncos blew a 24-0 lead. Seattle opened -3.5 both offshore and in Las Vegas. A few shows moved off of the -3.5 to -3 with juice. The total has been bet down heavily from 41.5/41 to 39.5/40. The two squads split the regular season meetings: San Francisco (-2.5) won 19-17 but failed to cover at home in Week 14; Seattle (-3) won and covered 29-3 in Week 2.

In terms of historical results (see below), sides are split 7-7 ATS (favorite/underdog) while totals have trended over at 9-5 O/U. Road teams have covered four straight.

New England at Denver
CRIS Opener: Denver -7 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Denver -5 O/U 55
LVH Opener: Denver -6.5 O/U 55
LVH Current: Denver -5 O/U 55

NFL Gambling: Betting markets spent nearly entire season fading the Indianapolis Colts

01.10.2014     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you follow the NFL betting markets, you're well aware of its distaste for the Indianapolis Colts. Bettors considered last year's 11-5 SU/ATS mark to be fraudulent and were hell-bent on cashing in on the correction. It looked like a lucrative move as the Colts failed to cover in Weeks 1 and 2. It didn’t last however as Indy outpaced the market once again with a current run of 11-4 ATS. Ironically, after Weeks 1 and 2, in which the Colts took money based on CRIS's opening and closing numbers, they went 14 straight weeks without doing so. In four different weeks, the opening and closing numbers were the same. Which leaves 10 games (seven straight) in which the market faded this squad. This week, we've yet to see much of an anti-Colts push as CRIS opened +7-110 and currently shows a slight lean juice-wise towards New England. However, based on the market's track record with Indy, it seems likely at some point that 7.5 will be the prevailing number.



Based on CRIS’s opening and closing lines


vs. Kansas City
Colts Open -2.5
Colts Close +2

vs. Jacksonville

NFL Playoff Gambling: Sportsbooks offer differing opinions on Indianapolis-New England

01.07.2014     12:12 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting line move at Grande for Saturday's Indianapolis-New England game. Grande, which is commonly referred to as a "leading indication sportsbook" has moved its line six times – all towards the Indy side. Grande opened the Colts +7.5-10 and from there dropped to +7.5-15, +7.5-20, +7.5-25, +7ev, and to its current number of +7-25. That number is a far cry from Las Vegas shops like LVH and William Hill that offer 7.5-110. CRIS has also shown respect for the Colts; opening +7-110 and yet to move off the key number to +7.5.
