Dude decides the best way to fund house down payment is roulette

07.20.2012     08:11 AM     Printer Friendly
Here's a tip: If you’re trying to put together enough scratch for a down payment on a house, we suggest not playing roulette as a means of achieving your goal. After being told by multiple Las Vegas casinos that $20K was the single bet limit, a Hawaii man was given the green light to wager $66K at Binion's. Of course he won because no one wants to read about a loser.

“We are in the gambling business; this is what we do,” Terry Caudill, owner of Binion’s and the Four Queens Hotel & Casino, said in a statement. “It is somewhat unusual that he wanted to risk such a large amount. I consider these kinds of requests on a case-by-case basis.”

MLB Betting Notes: White Sox call up rookie Hernandez vs. Boston

Chicago WS (Hernandez) at Boston (Doubront) -165 O/U 11

Chicago lefty Pedro Hernandez will make his MLB debut tonight in Boston. Hernandez has been in the minors since 2007. In 80.2 IP at Double- and Triple-A this season, he accumulated 48 strikeouts and 19 walks.

“He and [Jose Quintana] were in the same role [during spring training],’’ manager Robin Ventura said. “You kind of hope to catch lightning twice, really.’’

Handicapper Teddy Covers gives the scoop on summer football betting in Vegas

07.17.2012     12:46 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
The LVH Superbook is most assuredly a wiseguy friendly establishment, consistently ranked along with the Cantor books as the best sportsbooks in town. Jay Kornegay and his staff are industry leaders – the betting boards at LVH are loaded with a bevy of wagering opportunities that many books in town don’t offer; particularly around Super Bowl time.

Kornegay doesn’t ratchet up the juice either, offering ten cent lines during baseball season and twenty cent lines for his win totals on both NFL and college football. On their future book, the LVH is willing to adjust in both directions. For example, within the past week, the LVH adjusted their Odds to Win the Division for the 2012 NFL season on ten of the 32 teams.

Five of those teams are now more expensive to buy – less of a return on investment since last week. But five of those teams are now cheaper to buy, offering better value than they did a week ago. Many sportsbooks in town simply adjust odds down from their openers in response to the bets they’ve received, but the LVH is one book willing to adjust upwards in an effort to attract more handle.

The LVH took center stage Read more

MLB Betting News: White Sox send Humber to the mound vs. Red Sox

07.17.2012     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Chicago WS (Humber) at Boston (Lester) -170 O/U 10

The Chicago White Sox welcome back Philip Humber (elbow) back the DL.

Humber since April 21 Perfect Game: 53 IP, 62 hits, 28 BBs, 47 Ks, 12 HRs, 7.47 ERA

"It's not fun being on the sidelines,'' Humber said. "I'm excited to get back. There's been a lot of hard work to get back and ready to help the team win.''

"In a rehab situation the main thing is to be healthy and build arm strength but at the same time it's nice to have a good performance, especially the last one to leave yourself with a nice taste in your mouth,'' Humber said. "Hopefully it's something to build off of coming back here.''

Australian sports betting is blowing up

07.09.2012     12:41 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

Australian sports betting is on the rise, as reported by articles today from the Herald Sun and Daily Telegraph. Of course the lamestream media couldn’t help themselves with their sensationalist headlines – does anyone really believe that “rising online betting fears” really are “gripping the nation” or that sports betting has become an “epidemic” down under?

There’s been a nearly 23% rise on visits to Australian sports betting and lottery sites (how they lump these two together is beyond me) over a six month span between last December and this May; truly an impressive increase in a relatively short amount of time. What does this mean? Australians like to bet, just like citizens from every other country in the world!

The biggest concern for the Aussie’s appears to be the rising offshore competition against their legal, licensed and regulated sportsbooks. And there is also the tried and true, over-the-top fear mongering from the politicians about the supposed evils of sports betting; the same type of Read more

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: WSOP edition

07.09.2012     11:05 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Even the sharpest bettors in the world don’t spend 100% of their time focusing on sports. This week in particular is arguably the lightest sports betting week of the entire year.

Baseball is on their annual All Star Break through Friday. There’s no Canadian Football or Arena Football scheduled until Thursday, and between the two leagues, the dozen games on tap for the week offer fewer potential betting opportunities than a single day with a full slate of MLB action. Wimbeldon is in the rear view mirror for tennis bettors, as is the Euro 2012 for soccer bettors and UFC 148 for MMA bettors. It’s the time of year where most professional bettors are either on vacation or engaging in another positive expectation activity. Here in Las Vegas, that activity usually involves the World Series of Poker.

In the four decades since its inception, the World Series of Poker has grown from a tiny tournament attracting only a small handful of bettors into the modern behemoth at the Rio; a true spectacle even for seasoned pros. The 2012 WSOP features a whopping 61 different bracelet events over a more than six week span. In this week’s Vegas Wiseguy Read more

Sunday MLB Betting Free Play: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies

07.08.2012     04:53 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Atlanta (Jurrjens) at Philadelphia (Worley) -125 O/U 9
Recommendation: Philadelphia

Atlanta’s a confident team right now having won three straight and four of five with all four wins being by three or more runs. The offense has scored 29 runs in their last five games and the starting staff has rattled off four straight quality wins. The surge has seen them now get to within 0.5 game of the lead in the NL Wild Card race. Conversely, Philadelphia is an absolute mess after 86 games at 37-49, 14 games behind division leading Washington. Local media, the fan base and the team are all extremely frustrated and the Phils are an inch away from being a trade deadline seller. All that being said, Philadelphia looks to be in a good spot today against the Braves and RH starter Jair Jurrjens. While Jurrjens numbers in his three starts since coming off the DL look real good (2-0 / 1.20 WHIP / 1.47 ERA), there are numbers inside the overall façade that have us looking to fade him Read more

NFL Gambling News: Oddsmakers agree that later start time means bigger handle

07.03.2012     11:10 AM     Printer Friendly

Article from ESPN's Chad Millman on the NFL's decision to push back the start of the late afternoon games.

"It will help, there is no doubt. And since they are doing it, I'd like to see the league stagger the schedule even more," says Vaccaro. "Let's start some games at 10 a.m. Vegas time and others at 11 a.m. And let's turn Monday nights into a doubleheader every week."

"For years, sports-book directors have been saying this was necessary," longtime Vegas reporter Dave Tuley told me last night. Added Lucky's Jimmy Vaccaro, "The 4:15 start had been getting tight. Now I don't think we will ever shut anyone out."

MLB Betting Update: Clearly not right, Cubs give Samardzija another start

07.02.2012     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly

Chicago Cubs (Samardzija) at Atlanta (Hanson) -190 O/U 8

For whatever reason, the Chicago Cubs will continue to roll the dice with Jeff Samardzija who is clearly wearing down in his first season as a full-time MLB starter. Samardzija has already matched last year's inning total and is just over 50 away from hitting his professional career high (141.2 in 2007). In the span of just over a month, Samardzija's ERA has jumped from 3.00 to 5.05. His stat line from his last four starts: 18.1 IP, 25 ER, 14 Ks, 10 BBs, 4 HRs, 12.27 ERA, 1.033 OPS. And if that weren't bad enough, manager Dale Sveum was quoted as saying, “I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned a little bit with the numbers and execution Read more
