Leagues want a piece of legalized sports betting

01.24.2018     10:08 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
In terms of the five major sports bet on in the United States (NBA, MLB, NFL, CFB and CBB) there is simply no way of knowing the actual size of the market. What we do know is a vast majority of the money being wagered is either offshore and or offscreen (i.e. local bookmakers). Various sports leagues appear to be gearing up for some sort of regulation and of course, they want a piece. The NBA says it wants 1 percent of every bet made. That's a fine idea but 1% of every bet made at U.S. regulated sportsbooks would be peanuts compared to what has and will continue to be wagered on offshore. Under the proposed format (increased juice, limits, credit cards and the potential to be taxed), there is simply no reason to think serious bettors, who account for a vast majority of the world wide handle, are going to play at an U.S. regulated online sportsbook. Maybe the leagues already understand that. But we can’t help but get the feeling that this projected “explosion” of sports betting, should it be legalized, is not Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Indiana Hoosiers at Illinois Fighting Illini

Indiana at Illinois -2 O/U 143.5
Recommendation: Illinois

You heard Tom Izzo say after Michigan State's win on Monday night that Illinois was "the best 0-8 team in the country." You could also call them one of the unluckiest teams in the country with three overtime losses and another by a single point. The Illini are still a "bottom tier" Big Ten squad but a couple of bounces their way and instead of 0-8, they could easily be 3-5 or even 4-4. Indiana, meanwhile, is a surprising 5-3 in league play with three of their five wins coming by four points or less. Under Archie Miller, it's clear the Hoosiers are improving. Since their embarrassing 20-point home loss to Fort Wayne, IU has won and covered six of eight. Illinois put a ton of effort into Monday's game against Michigan State in which they forced 25 turnovers. This is a short turnaround and matching that intensity for 40 minutes could be tricky. But Brad Underwood is an excellent motivator and should have his squad ready to go. Keep in mind, under Underwood, Oklahoma State started Big XII play 0-6 and ripped off 10 of 11. He doesn't have the horses to do that in Champaign but you Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Winnipeg Jets at San Jose Sharks

01.23.2018     12:38 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Winnipeg -110 at San Jose O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Winnipeg

The Winnipeg Jets recommitted themselves over their five-day break to playing better and stronger defensive hockey and so far that mindset has paid dividends for the Jets as they’ve won two straight games following their break defeating Calgary 2-1 on the road and they followed that up with a 1-0 shutout victory back home against Vancouver. The Jets came out of the break focused on improving at goal prevention and they have made good on their word in the last two games. That new defensive focus should serve them quite well tonight because they are taking on a San Jose team that has been one of the better defensive teams in the NHL this season. There could be a distinct edge in freshness and energy for this game on the Winnipeg side of the equation. This is just Winnipeg's 3rd game following their extended break. Meanwhile, San Jose is at the tail end of a very grueling scheduling cycle. The Sharks will be playing their 7th game in 11 nights since they came out of their league mandated 5 day break and for a team whose core players are in their 30’s in age, this Read more

NBA Handicapping: Cleveland Cavaliers' pointspread run now sits at 1-13

01.23.2018     12:33 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Saving the best for last, we present to you the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs are in the midst of one of the worst ATS runs in NBA history (1-13 ATS). Last Saturday, they allowed 148 at home to Oklahoma City. They too had the obligatory "team meeting" in which everyone pretty much called Kevin Love a sissy for being sick. And speaking of crappy spread records, the Cavs have covered only 12 games ALL SEASON and we're week away from the start of February! Cleveland returns to action tonight (and taking money!) at San Antonio. Cavs jumped from +2 to as high as -2.5.

 "We've got to do something about it," he said. "We're doing a lot of talking, but we've got to play better. We've got to execute better offensively, we've got to execute better defensively. We've got to be better collectively. Everyone has to be better. We've been saying that, but we're taking the necessary steps to do that."

NBA Betting: Milwaukee Bucks fire head coach Jason Kidd

01.23.2018     12:30 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Up next, the Milwaukee Bucks who parted ways with head coach Jason Kidd. After losing at Philadelphia, 116-94, Kidd inexplicably went public with the excuse that his team was "too young" to be any good. Like Washington, Milwaukee does has pieces and ranks a respectable eighth in the NBA in offensive efficiency. But they've had trouble guarding and thus trouble covering pointspreads (18-23-5 ATS). Assistant Joe Prunty took over for Kidd last night as the Bucks won but failed to cover against Phoenix. The schedule moving forward is manageable with a litter of mediocre Eastern Conference foes starting Friday with a home tilt vs. Brooklyn.

“We appreciate everything that Jason has done for the Bucks organization, but we have decided to make a coaching change,” General Manager Jon Horst said in a news release. “We believe that a fresh approach and a change in leadership are needed to continue

NBA Gambling News: It doesn't sound like the Washington Wizards are in a good place

01.23.2018     11:55 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
A lot of drama in the NBA to discuss today so let's get it started with the Washington Wizards. Reports are out that a recent "team meeting" actually did more harm than good. Their play on the court certainly suggests it was. Last week, the Wiz coughed up 133 to bottom feeder Charlotte. They bounced back with a 10-point road win over Detroit but last night were somehow outclassed in Dallas, 98-75. On the season, Washington is a semi-respectable 26-21 SU but a dismal 20-27 ATS. They've also played the easiest schedule in the NBA. And what makes Washington a very ripe fade moving forward is that compared to the rest of the Eastern Conference, there is talent, and by default, they’ll have something to play for with a playoff berth likely. Up next, a Thursday tilt at Oklahoma City.

"We had our team meeting," Wall said Friday. "A couple guys took it the negative way and it hurt our team. Instead of taking it in a positive way like we did in the past and using it to build our team up, it kind of set us back a little
