Ridiculously large Mayweather bet turns out to be marketing ploy

08.14.2017     06:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mayweather v. McGregor. The Maloof Bros. An $880K bet. And a potion that is supposed to cure hangovers. Seriously, WTF?


 “We were flooded with McGregor money so I was more than happy to take the bet,” South Point sports book director Chris Andrews said Saturday. “We still need Mayweather.”

“We went and sat down with (South Point owner) Michael Gaughan and made the bet. But we came back and thought to ourselves, ‘The money is nice but it can do so much good for so many other people so why don’t we take all the winnings and donate it to charity,’ ” he said. “If he wins, we’ll donate the $160,000 to charities in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, where our sister Adrienne lives.

“It will be a nice gesture for the community and get everybody rooting for Floyd, who’s a hometown kid.”

NFL Preseason Gambling: Arizona Cardinals change play callers for second straight game

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Arizona Cardinals will hand over play calling duties to quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich for Sunday's game vs. Oakland. In their 20-18 Hall of Fame game loss to the Cowboys, the Cardinals scored 15 points in the first quarter and finished with 327 total yards. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin called plays in that contest. Arizona has taken a slew of money this week; +1 to now -3 at both offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks.


“Byron doesn’t have a ton of, or much, history calling plays but just his knowledge of the offense, his knowledge of being the guy that is hearing it through his headset is going to serve him and give him some experience.”

Not everyone is lining up to bet Conor McGregor

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You knew at some point there was going to be Floyd Mayweather money, especially after all of the talk about the "public" reportedly betting the shit out of Conor McGregor. Note that one Las Vegas sportsbook director hints that if you like Floyd, you may be able to get around -500 closer to fight night.

 

“That really balances things out,” Westgate sports book director Jay Kornegay said. “The Mayweather money showed up a little earlier than we thought it would. I think it got all the way down to (minus-)625 when they started laying Mayweather money. I thought it was going to drop lower and it still might.”

Oddsmakers continue to see one-sided action on Mayweather-McGregor

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Las Vegas bookmakers weigh in on the Mayweather-McGregor "fight."


 "This should be the easiest fight that any bookmaker's ever booked," Vaccaro quipped. "The general public is much more involved these days, and you know their hole cards. They're going to bet the big dog, and you'll know closer to the fight what number the big guys are salivating to lay."

"You make a number based on what type of money and flow of money that you would expect at the counters," Kornegay added. "It's not necessarily the true odds; it's just reflective of the betting patterns that we expect to see. Since we opened [minus] 2,500 and it's now down to [minus] 700 ... that's how close we were."

If you want some Floyd Mayweather in your pocket, now may be a good time to grab some as a few bets on Conor McGregor have driven the line down to as low as -550 (-672 at Pinnacle).


One adventurous bettor wagered $35,000 on McGregor to win by KO at 6-1 odds. That bet would win $210,000 if McGregor pulled off the shocker.

NBA Betting News: Houston Rockets title odds drop to 15-1 following acquisition of Paul

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The odds on another Golden State-Cleveland NBA Finals are still ridiculously low (+140 at 5Dimes) but with Chris Paul headed to Houston, the Rockets are without question more of a "player." The Rockets began the summer at 30-1 to win the title according to Las Vegas' Westgate but have since dropped to 15-1.


 "Since winning back-to-back championships [in 1994 and '95], the pursuit of a third title has remained the ultimate goal for our franchise," Rockets owner Leslie Alexander said in a statement. "We feel that combining two of the league's greatest players in James Harden and Chris Paul, operating in Coach [Mike] D'Antoni's system, gives us a championship-caliber team that will compete at the highest level for years to come."

NFL Gambling News: League reaches settlement with Las Vegas charity event

06.21.2017     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL has a long history of getting pissy any time its name get associated with a casino. Back in 2015, a kids charity event was put together with various players in attendance. The venue happen to be the bowling alley at Las Vegas' Sunset Station. The NFL nixed it but the charity wasn't about to be bullied and turned right around and sued the league. It looks as if the NFL waved the white flag as it recently reached a settlement with the charity.


“There's only one person that can tell us what's the difference between the non-approved venue and the approved venue (Goodell),” Pettit told a federal magistrate judge last month. “And he's this Oz behind the curtain, this person that the NFL will not allow us to talk to. And everyone points their finger at him, saying he's the only one that can make that determination.”
