Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: College Basketball's best against the spread

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror after Sunday’s wild Baltimore victory, which can only mean one thing – college hoops is on center stage for the next eight weeks.  I’ve been writing game previews for ESPN.com/Insider for the last month, but I’ve yet to write a true ‘college basketball overview’ column for any publication so far this season.  That streak ends here.

I’m going take a look at the very best pointspread ‘regular board’ teams in the country in this week’s column.  The list of ATS juggernauts is likely to surprise many people due to its diversity.  Elite level teams aren’t necessarily pointspread winners, and bottom feeders can cash ticket after ticket if the betting markets set numbers that allow them to hang within the number as big underdogs.  Look no further than the single best ATS team in the nation so far this season. 

I’ll wager that less than a dozen people in the country knew that Fordham is the #1 ATS team in all of DI basketball this year; 14-5 against the number.  The Rams are 6-16 SU, just 2-5 in Atlantic-10 play.  Read more

Nevada sportsbooks turn small profit from Super Bowl XLVII

02.04.2013     06:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Now that the smoke has cleared, it looks as if Baltimore's outright win and the game going over the total helped Nevada sportsbooks turn a small profit. Had San Francisco punched in six late and won by two or three, the books reportedly would have crushed.


“We’re a small winner,” reported Jimmy Vaccaro, the spokesman for William Hill sports books. “We ended up with some Ravens moneyline late, so that took some of our steam out. But we did OK.”

“If everyone did what we did, then I would expect we’d break the record,” MGM Resorts sports book director Jay Rood said. “We fared pretty well, but it’s difficult to say how everyone else did. There’s a strong possibility that some of the local places could have seen more Ravens money.”

“The props were a very small winner,” Vaccaro said. “The Kaepernick kid didn’t help. The safety and touchdown were two of the bigger ones of the day and we lost both of them, but we beat most of the other

Super Bowl XLVII Gambling: Let's Talk About the 49ers' Defense

I’m starting to hear a lot of chatter about how San Francisco’s defense is going to be the deciding factor in Sunday’s Super Bowl meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. While the team certainly has a top-notch defense, it may not be quite as dominating as you were thinking.

It’s easy to remember the highlights from the past season…where the Niners embarrassed teams like the Jets, Bills, and even the Bears in a big TV game. But, when facing elite offenses, it’s been a slightly different story.

Here’s what opposing offenses from PLAYOFF teams did against San Francisco’s defense this season starting with their season opener at Green Bay, and ending with their NFC Championship win over Atlanta. If you’re new to the blog, drive points are those scored or allowed on drives of 60 yards or more. The average this year was around 13 per offense per game. Note that the chart below deletes non-offensive scoring (for example...Green Bay had a Read more

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Kobe Bryant points vs. 49ers points

Kobe Bryant Points vs. San Francisco Points
Recommendation: San Francisco +0.5 (-110 @ LVH)


Tired of losing, grasping at straws, desperate for a change...whatever it was, over the last week Kobe Bryant has transformed from gunner to facilitator. How long this lasts, no one knows. But what we do know is Kobe started passing and the Lakers started winning. They’ve won three of their last four (heading into Friday) and could of made it four straight had Dwight Howard not re-injured his shoulder during Wednesday's game at Phoenix. In those four games, Kobe attempted 51 shots (12.8 per game) and dished out 48 assists. In LA's previous four games to that (all losses), Kobe jacked up 102 shots (25.5 per game). On Sunday, the Lakers play at Detroit, one of the slower paced teams in the league. With a total of 47 and a line of -4, San Francisco is projected to score around 25 points which is close to where I made my numbers. So long as new Kobe doesn't morph back into old Kobe, this one cashes.

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Michael Crabtree total receptions

Michael Crabtree Total Receptions
Recommendation: Over 6 (-140 @ CRIS)


Instead of using the entire 16-game season to analyze the San Francisco 49ers box scores for making our prop bets, we really only need about half the season. This is due to the change at quarterback, with Colin Kaepernick taking over for Alex Smith midseason. As a result, looking at games with Smith as the starting quarterback is useless, and there is a much smaller sample size than usual to base our wagers. One thing that really stands out in the games with Kaepernick under center is how much he targets his top receiver, Michael Crabtree. Crabtree has caught six or more passes in six of the last seven games, and will no doubt be targeted heavily on Sunday. The game plan shouldn’t change that much, and the number and price here offers us plenty of value that he will hang on to the majority of balls thrown his way.

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Bet Recommendation: Joe Flacco longest completion

Joe Flacco Longest Completion
Recommendation: Over 40.5 (-110 @ LVH)


If the Baltimore Ravens are going to win this game, they will need to do it by exploiting San Francisco’s secondary.  That means Joe Flacco will need to make some big plays down field.  Flacco has shown a deft touch downfield throughout the season.  This postseason, we’ve already seen him toss passes of 47, 50, 59 and 70 yards. And in 19 total games this season, Flacco has hit for 40 or more yards 16 times.  The 49ers have surrendered at least one 40+ yard pass in five straight games dating back to the regular season. Look for a sixth here on Sunday.

For most of the evening, the Los Angeles Lakers looked to be well on their way to winning their second game in two nights, further establishing that they were in warrior mode in their attempt to chase down the #8 seed in the Western Conference brackets.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Dwight Howard re-aggravated his labrum injury trying to score in traffic. He left the game with the Lakers leading 78-73. Phoenix would win the rest of the game 19-8, striking the Lakers playoff hopes with a lightning bolt in the process…

Phoenix 92, LA Lakers 86

2-Point Percentage: Lakers 49%, Phoenix 49%

3-Point Shooting: Lakers 8/27, Phoenix 3/12

Free Throws: Lakers 12/19, Phoenix 13/15

1’s and 2’s: Lakers 62, Phoenix 83

Rebounds: Lakers 46, Phoenix 36

Turnovers: Lakers 19, Phoenix 11

You can see the two biggest issues for the Lakers were scoring differential inside the arc (Michael Beasley Read more
