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.”

New Jersey says you'll be able to bet on the NFL by 2018 (LOL!)

Oh, New Jersey. You mean well but remain so naive. Here were have Chris Christie saying betting on the NFL will be a go by 2018. They said the same thing back in 2013 when the Garden State hosted Super Bowl XLVIII. 


"They pick and choose," the New Jersey governor said. "For instance, the Obama administration said it was OK to legalize recreational marijuana even though marijuana is still illegal on federal level, but the Obama administration said 'No' on gambling."

NFL Gambling Alert: New York Jets soon-to-be popular fade

06.12.2017     09:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As close to an Emergency Betting Alert as we've seen this offseason, don't be afraid to lock in that -6.5 on the Buffalo Bills for their Week 1 game vs. the New York Jets. Simply put, the Jets are in full-on rebuilding mode following the departure of a slew of key veterans. It's early and -7 is obviously a lot for a mediocre Week 1 favorite but it wouldn't shock up to see this line climb as more people become aware of this season's impending tanking.


"We'll do everything in our power to be competitive," general manager Mike Maccagnan said at a news conference Tuesday while emphasizing the team was focused on creating opportunities for its young players. "We'll see how that unfolds."

The Las Vegas Westgate SuperBook is offering a new football handicapping contest for the upcoming season. The SuperContest Gold will be $5K to enter and a winner-take-all payout.


"We think [SuperContest Gold] has so much potential," Westgate SuperBook manager Jay Kornegay told ESPN. "It continues the tradition of the SuperContest, especially the format, but this seemed like a natural way to enhance it. The winner gets a custom SuperContest Gold championship ring as well."

NFL Gambling News: League playing coy in regards to how it will handle sports betting

06.05.2017     10:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With the Raiders not expected to move to Las Vegas until 2020, that gives the NFL plenty of time to come up with ways to gum up the works when it comes to sports betting.


“I’ve said before, I think with the Raiders playing in Las Vegas, there will be (gaming) policies that we will evaluate and look at what we can do differently, but also intelligently,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We will look at all those things over the next couple of years. (Mobile gaming) isn’t something we’ve addressed.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Oakland A's at Cleveland Indians

Oakland (Gray) at Cleveland (Bauer) -160 O/U 9
Recommendation: Under

Cleveland's Trevor Bauer has always been a guy that at times can't get out of his own way. But there's no denying that he's got above average MLB stuff. Bauer has been on the unlucky side of things this season with a .328 BABIP and 65% LOB rate. He's also allowed home runs on over 22% of his fly balls. Despite that, his strikeout rate is north of 10 and his walk rate is right on par with his career average. All of this of course plays out in Bauer's sky high ERA (6.30) and above average xFIP (3.42). It’s tough to label and Cleveland pitcher as “bet on” due to the Indians’ inflated status in the betting markets but Bauer has better days on the horizon. After throwing a ton of innings in college and back-to-back 200+ innings his second and third seasons for the A's, I think Sonny Gray benefited from having an abbreviated 2016 (117 IP). He started the season on the DL but looks to be at full strength with 19 strikeouts and 31 swinging strikes in his last two starts. I really see both starters as being a bit undervalued at this point -- and both Read more

NFL Gambling News: Bettors should be able to bet on Las Vegas Raiders at the stadium

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We're still a long ways off from a Las Vegas Raiders football game. So far, there is no indication that Nevada residents won't be able to bet on the games. In fact, the league has yet to comment on the potential that bettors will be able to wager on Raider games AT Raider games using their mobile devices.


"The NFL has not approached me for any policy decisions," Nevada Gaming Commissioner chairman Tony Alamo told ESPN. "The Nevada Gaming Commission is the policy maker for the state of Nevada and gaming, and they have not approached us in any shape, way or form."

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
From one extreme to another, yesterday we discussed how the Cleveland Browns were underdogs in every game but one (pick 'em vs. NY Jets) according to CG Technology's early NFL lines. Here we have the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots laying points in EVERY regular season game (note that Week 17's game are not lined). Last season, the Patriots were underdogs in Week 1 to Arizona but were without the services of Tom Brady. Two weeks later, they closed a pick 'em vs. Houston (again, no Tom Brady). Overall, if you include the playoffs, New England was on average a -7 favorite. This year right at -6.5.

Week 1 - New England -7 vs. Kansas City
Week 2 - New England -4.5 at New
Week 3 - New England -9 vs. Houston
Week 4 - New England -9 vs. Carolina
Week 5 - New England -3 at Tampa Bay
Week 6 - New England -9.5 at NY Jets
Week 7 - New England -6.5 vs. Atlanta
Week 8 - New England -12 vs. LA Chargers
Week 9 - BYE
Week 10 - New England -3 at Denver
Week 11 - New England -1.5 vs. Oakland (Mexico City)
Week 12 - New England -9 vs. Miami
Week 13 - New England -7 at Buffalo
Week 14 - New England -4 at Read more
