Bettor makes $100K horse wager but cancels at last second

03.05.2012     07:34 AM     Printer Friendly
Weird situation at Arkansas' Oaklawn Race Track saw a simulcast bettor from California cancel a $100K wager right before post. It caused a huge disturbance in the betting pools but no foul play was discovered. The horse that was originally wagered on finished last.


“He placed the bet early, watched a race on the simulcast, and didn’t like what he saw,” Marten said, when asked what reason the bettor gave for cancelling the bet. “Something with the track, and also a further review of the past performances. This is someone who has made a lot of big bets before, large bets that he hasn’t cancelled.”











Victor Chandler talks about the state of match fixing

British sportsbook giant Victor Chandler on match fixing how dirty the cricket betting markets can be.


"At least 10 years ago we steered clear of taking large bets from Indians and Pakistanis on cricket," he says. "The suspicion was that they seemed to know more than we did, and we got our bottom smacked a few times, in a big way. In those days it was more on the result of the match, but the markets they offer in India now are unbelievable, betting on each ball. There's a huge illegal bookmaking business there, which could be taxed and regulated..."

"The lower levels of tennis are a bit dangerous, and we've seen some large bets in eastern Europe," he says. "But in recent years there's been very little to worry about. Football... it's very hard to influence a game, but if we had any suspicions then we as an industry would be shouting very loudly. I mean, one looks at the Italian leagues at the end of a season, when games tend to end in draws if they want them to, but we build that in to Read more








College Basketball Betting News and Notes 3-4-2012

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are some news and notes for Sunday's college basketball action.

Purdue's 78-61 loss to Indiana back on February 4 has served as a turning point with the team going 5-2 since and playing itself into position for a postseason berth.


"I just got tired of begging people to play hard,'' said Painter, who was openly critical of the Boilermakers' effort after that game. "If you're not going to play hard, we're going to play other guys. That's just the way it is."



Florida tries to keep Kentucky from a perfect SEC season. The Gators lost a Rupp Arena 78-58 back on February 7.

College Basketball Free Play: Wyoming Cowboys at UNLV Rebels

Wyoming at UNLV -10.5 O/U 127
Recommendation: Over


In the war against meaningless games, scoring often wins out and that is where we will look for tonight’s UNLV-Wyoming matchup. While UNLV may apply on-ball pressure, after a few extra passes this defense is very susceptible. Just look what took place at Colorado State – the Rams just wore UNLV down with 40 points in the second half. Wyoming isn't that type of team but they'll get more that their fair share of open looks. As for UNLV's offense, we can certainly expect bigger things (it's Senior Night!) than what we saw in Fort Collins with a season long average of 82.8 ppg at the Thomas & Mack Center. The first time these two teams met, Wyoming was for the most part able to control tempo with only 63 possessions but the game still got to 134 points. These two teams could very well face one another in the opening round of the Mountain West Tournament which has Read more

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Michigan a perfect 7-0 ATS following a loss

Michigan at Illinois -2.5 O/U 121

With Michigan State's loss at Indiana on Tuesday, Michigan still has a shot at owning a share of the Big Ten title. The Wolverines are off a disappointing senior night loss to Purdue and travel to face Illinois. UM has played extremely well after a loss this season with a perfect 7-0 SU/ATS record. Illinois meanwhile snapped a six-game losing streak with a win over Iowa on Sunday.


“We know there’s a chance,” Beilein said. “Given the fact that we’re the No. 1 RPI league, we’re the No. 1 Sagarin league — would you like to win a conference championship outright? Yeah.

“But if you’re co-champs, or tri-champs or quad-champs, I don’t care. We’re champs, and that’s what we’re trying to get to.”

Big East Betting Notes: Pitino want Cardinals to run, tough to do vs. South Florida

South Florida at Louisville -9 O/U 119

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino is upset that his team continues to get involved in grind-it-out, half court games. With the exception of an overtime result against DePaul, the Cardinals haven't topped 70 possessions since a 80-59 win over UConn on February 6. The problem is they may have to wait another game to get that type of pace. South Florida hasn't played a Big East game with over 65 possessions. Their fastest game to date was in large part due to the margin; a 30-point loss to Georgetown. In games against fast-paced Marquette, Villanova and DePaul, the average game score for the Bulls was 123.8. And when you account for Louisville's defensive prowess (86.7 points per possession allowed, 7th nationally), getting up over 120 tonight could be difficult. Perhaps buying Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Tracking close ATS results

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Back in early February some Fairway Followers requested updated information on college basketball ATS results, and I provided them in the Sportsmemo posting forum. With the regular season coming to a close this week, I thought it was a good time to update the results and see how this season compares to historical college basketball results. I reviewed box scores, stats and documented and tracked these results every night and the following mornings during the season.

Using historical data since the advent of the 3-point shot 25 years ago, approximately 40% of college basketball games and final scores will land within five points of the betting line. Approximately 10% of games and final scores will land within one point of the line (11% this season). This is slightly subjective with opening/closing line moves, but a good guide and indicator.

Using the closing lines as your guide for this college basketball season, here are the results month by month.  Again, nearly 40% of the college basketball games and final scores landed within five points of the betting line (39.3%) with nearly 3,200 games and results.

College Basketball Free Play: Florida Gators at Vanderbilt Commodores

Florida at Vanderbilt -3.5 O/U 140.5
Recommendation: Vanderbilt


Obviously I'd like to see Florida off of a win rather than an embarrassing 76-62 loss at Georgia but I still feel like this is a prime spot for Vanderbilt. It is senior night for the Commodores as a group of six players (86 career wins) will play their final home game at Memorial Gym. The key to this game though is not senior night or the revenge factor but in fact an injury. The Gators will be without forward Will Yeguete who is out for the rest of the season with a foot injury. Yeguete doesn't get much attention because he is one of the team's last options on offense (4.4 ppg). But his impact on the defensive end of the floor cannot be understated. In Florida's win over Vandy earlier this season, the Gators unleashed a full court press and forced 17 turnovers in large part because of Yeguete. Without him, and on the road, I don't think Billy Donovan will be able to apply the amount of pressure Read more

Who has what it takes to win the 2012 National Championship Part I

02.27.2012     10:58 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion. I write this article every year, and just about every year, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA national champion among my elite level teams. Last year, however, was an exception, with UConn coming from the middle of the pack to win the Big East title, followed by an impressive run to the National Championship.
 
Past predictions do not necessarily indicate future success, but I’ll stand by my track record in this article. Remember, as always, this gets written at the tail end of February. That’s before the regular season is over for the major conferences, before the conference tournaments, before the seedings are announced and before a single tournament game has been played.

So as I pen this article for the 2012 campaign, I do have some concerns about whether my long term statistical model still holds juice in the modern era. Not to brag, but I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament three times in the last five years, correctly predicting Florida in ‘07, Kansas in 2008 and North Carolina in ‘09. I did NOT predict Duke in ‘10, and Read more
