Former offshore sportsbook CEO found guilty

05.04.2015     02:31 PM     Printer Friendly

Some of you may remember now defunct offshore sportsbook, Legends. Back when it was running it commonly (and mysteriously) received top-tier ratings among the likes of CRIS and Pinnacle and yet you'd have a tough time finding anyone who played there. In 2013 CEO Luke King was pinched for taking bets from US clients, the website shut down, and said clients were then shipped to WagerWeb. Last week, King was found guilty of illegal gambling and money laundering in federal court. You can read more about the case here.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

Chicago (Wood) at St. Louis (Martinez) -140 O/U 7.5 
Recommendation: Over

Off of a weekend sweep of the Pirates where all three games went extra innings, St. Louis enters tonight’s contest with a worn out bullpen. Their top five relievers have thrown three times in the past four days, closer Trevor Rosenthal has thrown three consecutive days, lefty specialists Randy Choate and Kevin Siegrist are on back-to-back days and they’ve lost setup man Jordan Walden to the 15-day DL with biceps inflammation. Reliable and un-fatigued help in the back third of tonight’s game is a major concern for St. Louis. That puts a lot on the shoulders of starting RH Carlos Martinez who has been a terrific six inning guy in three of his last four and the other saw him throw a strong seven. The hard throwing righty has posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in his last four starts but his nine walks and four HR allowed leaves the door open for this Cubs lineup to score some runs. Opposite Martinez tonight is lefty Travis Wood who has had zero recent success keeping St. Louis off the scoreboard. In his last five starts against them, the Cards have averaged 4.8 runs scoring at least four in four of those games. Expect the same to happen tonight and also figure the back third of this game to be wide open for Chicago to score. Adding up all the pieces here and we have a play on the over, preferably at the key number of 7.

NBA Betting Alert: Clippers' Paul still listed as questionable

05.04.2015     08:10 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Hampered by a hamstring injury, Los Angeles' Chris Paul is anywhere from questionable to doubtful for Monday's Game 1 vs. Houston. The Rockets opened -3 but are currently as high as -6. The total has held at 212.

"I know he had an MRI and that all came out pretty well," Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said. "You have to be careful. If there's any risk, he won't play, I can tell you that right now. I just don't know yet."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Drafting quarterbacks in the first round

05.04.2015     08:06 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
To QB or not to QB; that is the question. And when it comes to breaking down the NFL Draft, those QB questions stand paramount.

Jameis Winston was loaded with character questions; a QB with a lack of maturity and poor decision making off the field made his tenure in Tallahassee controversial, to say the least.  Marcus Mariota didn’t have those same character concerns but he can’t match Winston’s full skill set either – there was no ‘Manning- Leaf debate’ over who would go #1 overall between the two prospects.  And yet that duo was drafted #1 and #2 overall by the Bucs and Titans in the NFL draft this past weekend.

There are two basic schools of thought when it comes to taking a QB with a first round pick in the NFL Draft.  One thought is that high draft choice QB busts set the franchise back, often for years.  There are as many (or more) busts as there are QBs that develop into effective starters.  Wasting a first round pick on a QB that doesn’t pan out – particularly when reaching or trading up to acquire the pick – can be nothing short of devastating for a franchise. 

Oakland still hasn’t recovered from their JaMarcus Russell pick at #1 overall eight years ago.  The Jaguars don’t look any better now than they did when they drafted Blaine Gabbert with the #10 overall selection back in 2011; even after taking another highly ranked prospect, Blake Bortles, in the 2014 draft with their first round pick.  Tennessee’s first round pick of Jake Locker four years ago led to disaster; hence the Mariota draft pick this past weekend.  There is certainly no shortage of other examples – I haven’t even mentioned Cleveland.

The other school of thought is simple.  You don’t win in the NFL without a star quarterback.  If you have a chance to nab a potential franchise QB with your first round pick, it’s a no brainer to take that risk.  And I’m not just taking about the truly elite, once-in-a-generation type franchise QB. 

Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck were the closest two QB’s to ‘can’t miss’ status over the past 20 years.  You could make a case that other #1 overall picks like Eli Manning, Michael Vick, Carson Palmer and Cam Newton weren’t far behind.  But still that’s only a half dozen QB’s over the last 20 years. 

Many careers of the ‘can’t possibly miss’ QBs have missed.  Carson Palmer never lived up to his promise due to injury; Michael Vick never turned a franchise around as a starting QB.  Luck and Newton have yet to take their franchises to the Promised Land.  A star QB without the appropriate level of talent surrounding him on both sides of the ball isn’t going to turn a perennial loser into a Super Bowl contender.  And a star QB without a decent offensive line to protect him is a disaster waiting to happen, both in terms of confidence and injury potential.

But when we look at what type of teams are making the playoffs and what type of teams aren’t, there is a clear divide between teams with a franchise QB and teams that don’t have one.   The playoff teams from last year include Green Bay (Aaron Rodgers, first rounder); Detroit (Matthew Stafford, first rounder), Carolina (Cam Newton, first rounder), Pittsburgh (Ben Roethlisberger, first rounder), Baltimore (Joe Flacco, first rounder), Indianapolis (Andrew Luck, first rounder) and Denver (Payton Manning, first rounder).   You could make a strong case that Arizona (first rounder Carson Palmer) wouldn’t have made the playoffs without Palmer for at least half the season before he got hurt again.

The only teams that made the playoffs last year without a high draft choice QB were New England and Dallas; the two examples that pundits always point to when discussing how it’s not always about the elite prospects at the QB position.  Tom Brady slipped through the cracks, down to the sixth round back in 1999.  I don’t think that would happen today – the metrics for college QB’s that translate into successful NFL careers are so much better defined now compared to where they were a generation ago.  Romo wasn’t drafted at all coming out of 1-AA Eastern Illinois, and he sat on the bench for four years learning his craft, something that you can’t do in the modern era with a high draft choice QB.  The final two playoff teams from last year featured Andrew Dalton and Russell Wilson; 2nd and 3rd round choices respectively.

If you split the NFL in half based on QB rating, the enormous dichotomy between ‘teams with a QB’ and ‘teams without one’ is very clear.  Of the top 16 quarterbacks last year (based on QB rating), eleven of them were first round draft choices.  Nine of them carried their team the playoffs while four others finished just a game short of a postseason berth.  This is a QB league, and there’s absolutely no way to win in the NFL without a decent option at quarterback.  And that’s why, in my mind, it’s an absolute ‘must’ to draft a top QB prospect when given the opportunity.

Of course, there’s plenty of room for debate about what a top QB prospect really is, and the NFL draft is still more art than science!   Brandon Weeden got drafted ahead of Russell Wilson.  Christian Ponder went ahead of Colin Kaepernick.  #1 overall pick Sam Bradford really was – by far – the best QB to come out of the 2010 draft – even though his tenure in St Louis can only be described as a bust.  The 2013 class with EJ Manuel, Geno Smith and Mike Glennon as the only three QBs drafted in the first round looks truly awful in retrospect. 

And even with Top 5 draft picks, recent history is littered with guys who failed to live up to their hype.  RG3 is only the most recent example of a group that includes Mark Sanchez, Vince Young and Joey Harrington.  Alex Smith went #1 overall; enjoying a decent career, but certainly not a great one.  Same story with Matthew Stafford for the Lions – better than what they had, but not approaching elite status in any way, shape or form.

There’s certainly a Catch-22 element in all of this.  A losing franchise searching for success is damned if they do; damned if they don’t when it comes to taking a QB with their first round pick.   With so many high profile busts and so many other needs to fill on a bottom-tier roster, taking a QB is most assuredly a gamble.  But when it comes to the possibility of setting a franchise up for an extended string of success, nothing trumps an elite QB.  In my opinion, that makes nabbing a top QB prospect a gamble worth taking every time, especially when we consider the final element in play -- selling tickets and merchandise to a disgruntled fan base; a fan base that is only likely to be mollified with a new potential franchise QB in the fold.

MLB Gambling: Houston Astros continue to make bettors happy

05.04.2015     07:44 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Holy profits! The Houston Astros (+13.4 units) are killing it having won 10 straight. Sunday's win upped their record to 18-7 and a seven-game lead in the American League West. It's a far cry from an organization that from 2011-13 went 162-323 and lost -90.15 units of profit. Carrying the load has been starters Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh. Since the start of last season, the duo has banked nearly +24 units of profit. This season, the Astros are a perfect 10-0 with those two hurlers on the bump. And there's a chance the winning could continue. Houston's next five series are against teams currently with a losing record. And four of those series are at home.

MLB Handicapping: Milwaukee Brewers fire manager Ron Roenicke

Winners of two straight (!) but 11.5 games out of first in the National League Central, the Milwaukee Brewers have decided to part ways with manager Ron Roenicke. Craig Counsell has been named the interim manager. Reports have indicated the Brew Crew are ready to unload some of their aging baggage including Matt Garza, Aramis Ramirez, and Kyle Lohse. The organization has made steps forward in terms of accumulating and developing talent in their system but there is no indication that immediate help is on the way.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Tigers at Kansas City Royals

Submitted by Otto Sports blog entry.
Detroit (Price) -125 at Kansas City (Volquez) O/U 7.5 
Recommendation: Under

After reinventing himself in Pittsburgh, Edinson Volquez continues to perform at an above average rate. He's looked extremely sharp through four starts with a 1.91 ERA and 2.66 FIP. His strikeout rate is also up from last year -- a good sign coming from the NL to AL. Coming from the right side, he's a favorable matchup against the Tigers. The Royals were able to get to Detroit lefty Kyle Lobstein last night but face a more uphill battle against David Price. Price has lost a tick on his fastball over the years but continues to miss bats (29 Ks in 31 IP). He was roughed up by the Yankees two starts ago but bounced back with a 6.1 IP, 3 ER, 7 K performance vs. Minnesota. Note that after giving up 14 fly balls to the Yanks he had a 11-7 GB/FB ratio to go with 14 swinging strikes vs. the Twins. KC's stats vs. lefties look really good (.297/.805) but they've had a really favorable slate of foes. Of their 11 games vs. a southpaw starter all but two (Chris Sale and Scott Kazmir) were against below average arms. Sale and Kazmir combined for 14.1 IP and 4 ERs. Two pitchers is solid form has us on the under 7.5.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Toronto Blue Jays at Cleveland Indians

05.01.2015     08:49 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Toronto (Buehrle) +102 at Cleveland (Carrasco) O/U 8 
Recommendation: Toronto

My clients and I cashed in with the Toronto Blue Jays last night in their 5-1 win against Cleveland I have no qualms fading the struggling Indians (1-5 in their L6 games) once again here as they face another lefty in veteran Mark Buehrle. Cleveland is struggling in all phases from not scoring runs consistently, subpar bullpen work, and some very shaky defense. Cleveland is batting just .220 as a team against lefties while averaging barely over three runs per game and that is nothing new or different for an Indians team that has consistently had problems against left-handed pitching. Buehrle tossed seven scoreless innings in his lone start against Cleveland last season and has a solid track record here at Progressive Field: 5-0 with a 2.25 ERA. On the flip side, Carlos Carrasco gets the nod for the Indians and he hasn’t been right ever since getting hit with that comebacker in his start last month against the Chicago White Sox. Carrasco had a solid first start against the White Sox after that incident but only worked 5 innings and followed that up by yielding 5 runs on 9 hits in just 4.1 innings of work vs. Detroit. Carrasco has allowed 11 runs on 16 hits in just 9.2 innings of work over two starts against the Blue Jays with one of those being last season. As mentioned, Cleveland’s bullpen is suspect so the disadvantage the Jays sometimes have isn’t as pronounced this series. Take the short road dog.

MLB Handicapping: Poor defense killing Indians' strong pitching

05.01.2015     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Good article courtesy of FanGraphs on the Cleveland Indians who are off to a sluggish 7-14 start. They've been a bit unfortunate as the starting staff sports a 4.88 ERA but 3.15 xFIP. The Tribe's starters are averaging over 10 strikeouts per nine innings but have been hampered by one of the worst defenses in baseball (-13 runs saved).

The crux of the issue: the Cleveland defense can’t simply hope to improve. It must improve, or else Cleveland is going to have a hard time being a good pitching team, which is what they’re built around. That’s a unique position to be in: usually defense is a smaller piece of the puzzle, or a positive trait that certain clubs build around.

Las Vegas sportsbooks gladly take big bets on Mayweather-Pacquiao

05.01.2015     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We know of Las Vegas sportsbooks that won't take over a dime on a college football total and yet they are reportedly accepting six figure wagers on Saturday's Mayweather-Pacquiao fight without manager approval.

"You get a big bet on Mayweather, you get six tickets right behind it -- 20, 100, 150, 200 (dollars) -- on Pacquiao," he said. "The ticket ratio in this fight will never, ever, ever go below five to one. The Filipinos love their guy, but they're not going to rush in and bet millions of dollars on these fights. They're betting on their guy. They just want a ticket in their pocket for $20 and they want to see their guy knock off the king."

There isn't a bettor alive that wasn't thinking "middle" during last night's Chicago-Milwaukee game. You could have live bet the Bulls -20 AND the Bucks +50. Too bad Chicago covered every single number, even the crazy -49.5+374 Pinnacle hung during the last time out. A little different that the Clipper-Spurs contest which never saw an in-game line of double-digits.

MLB Gambling Free Play: Chicago White Sox at Minnesota Twins

Chicago WS (Sale) -160 at Minnesota (May) O/U 7 
Recommendation: Chicago

The Twins bullpen got rocked again yesterday, as Minnesota blew a four run lead at home against the Tigers.  This isn’t new or different for a bullpen that came into the season loaded with question marks; currently ranked in the bottom quartile of MLB in bullpen ERA.  And that’s bad news with Trevor May on the hill this evening.

May was knocked out of the game after getting hit by a line drive on his elbow in his last start.  While he’s been given the OK to get back on the mound today, May is not a pitcher who can afford to be at less than 100%.  We’re talking about a young hurler with a career ERA approaching 8.00 in six previous starts at Target Field.  And May is no innings eater; yet to record a single out past the sixth inning in his big league career, leaving plenty of room for another Twins bullpen implosion should we need it.

Chris Sale, on the other hand, is a legitimate ace.  He’s allowed a grand total of five runs in his three previous starts this season, including a dominating one run, five hit effort against Minnesota in his season debut.  He’s 4-1 with a 2.45 ERA in five starts at Target Field since the start of the 2012 campaign.  The White Sox have played winning baseball since their 0-4 start, while going 5-1 following their last six losses, like the one they suffered yesterday in the empty stadium at Baltimore.  Meanwhile, the Twins aren’t likely to play winning baseball at any point this season.  Very reasonable chalk to lay with the superior squad.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cincinnati Reds at Atlanta Braves

04.30.2015     09:49 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Cincinnati (Leake) at Atlanta (Miller) -108 O/U 7 
Recommendation: Atlanta

After three seasons of up-and-down results with St. Louis, Shelby Miller looks to have figured things out. The Braves righty is using a different approach this season with more two-seam fastballs and sinkers and has seen his groundball rate sore from 40% to 57%. As a result, his strikeout rate is down, but he's far better suited for long term success using his current formula. Miller has allowed two earned runs or less and only one home run in his four starts. Cincinnati's Mike Leake has once again been serviceable but he's struggled to keep the ball on the ground with five home runs allowed and a groundball rate of only 42% vs. 53% a season ago. Offensively, the Braves show slightly better numbers against righties. And bullpen wise, if you eliminate Aroldis Chapman's 10 scoreless innings, the Reds pen has been nothing short of horrific with an ERA north of 6.00. Overall, I give the starting pitching edge to Miller and feel that we're getting a fair amount of value with this line currently below -110 on the home side.

Las Vegas sportsbook takes three massive bets on Mayweather

According to Westgate Sportsbook oddsmaker Jay Kornegay, there have been three six-figure bets placed on Floyd Mayweather.

"America has to bet this fight," veteran sports book director Jay Kornegay of the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook said. "Everyone coming to this town, they're going to wager on this fight. And we think 70% of the action will come in from Thursday on."

"Most people would rather bet $20 and win $40, than bet $20 and win $10," Kornegay said. "We see it at the window: 'Yeah, I'll bet Mayweather,' then they see it's $21.50 to win $10, and they're like, 'Oh, what about Pacquiao?' "

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves

Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Washington (Zimmermann) -115 at Atlanta (Wood) O/U 7 
Recommendation: Under

After last night’s combined 25-run outburst which featured a first time in three years sighting of Dan Uggla, look for today’s starting pitchers to calm things down. Jordan Zimmermann has some unattractive overall numbers right now but they’re definitely skewed by his horrible outing vs. Boston. Subtract that start from his game logs this season and you now see a different story which shows three appearances against NL East opposition and a statistical line of 2.45 ERA, 1.04 WHIP, a solid 14.78 pitches per inning, and only two extra base in hits the 71 batters he faced. Zimmermann is likely to tame the Atlanta lineup which has feasted on sub-par starting pitchers in three of their last four games but prior to that had been held to three runs or less in seven of 10 games. Zimmermann has also had success against the Braves posting a 2.10 ERA Atlanta in his last five starts against them which includes striking out 35 in those 30 innings. Feel that his mound opponent tonight, Alex Wood, will fare well too since before last night’s contest, they had played 20 games and recorded a .215 BA, .313 OBP, .346 SLG%, and averaged less than 3.5 runs per game. Wood has absolutely owned Washington recently with a 1.50 ERA and 35 Ks in those 30 innings. In all, this looks to be a low scoring affair so I’ll side with under.

Heading into Saturday's Kentucky Derby it looks like Dortmund will be your postime favorite. The son of 2008 Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner Big Brown, Dortmund is a perfect 6-for-6 including a 4 1/4-length victory in the Santa Anita Derby.

"He's just a big, tall horse, and he has speed," trainer Bob Baffert said. "He's really, really fast."
