Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 11

An intense start to the new NFL week with Seattle surviving the Green Bay Packers Thursday night 27-24. A lot of complaining in Las Vegas about officiating and Green Bay’s time management. At the end of the evening, it was sports books complaining the loudest. Everyone betting Seattle -2.5 won. Anybody betting the game day line on the key number of three was refunded for a push. Sportsbooks hate it when nobody loses!

Now we move to the rest of the pro schedule to see how sharps have been betting. A whopping SIX bye teams this week! Those are: Buffalo, Cleveland,…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: NFL Litmus Tests

Because so many bad teams have byes this week (New England is the only contender to get Sunday off, with the Bills, Browns, Dolphins, Jets and 49ers all staying home to watch great TV games with the rest of us), handicappers will have a prime opportunity to evaluate top playoff threats vs. quality opposition.

It’s not quite the same as the playoffs, because a lot of non-playoff caliber teams will be exposed. But, the following games in particular will be true litmus tests for teams hoping to close strong.

SundayDallas (4-5) at Atlanta (4-5)

Tennessee (5-4) at Indianapolis (4-5)

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Late Week Football

Back for a new week of college and pro football. Today we’ll look at how sharps have been betting Thursday and Friday action, as well as marquee matchups in Saturday’s relatively soft schedule. I’ll be back with you Friday afternoon to study the rest of this weekend’s NFL.

Games are presented in the order they appear in the Nevada Rotation so you can make notes in your personal schedules.

Network Notebook: Don’t Bet Hot/Cold Trends

Many handicappers will be tempted to bet on the “red hot” Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints this weekend. Both teams are enjoying long runs of success straight up and against the spread. Both proved last week that they’re playing at PEAK levels…each scoring more than 50 points!

*Pittsburgh beat Carolina 52-21, gaining 457 yards on 7.9 yards-per-play. The Steelers scored touchdowns on all four journeys into the red zone…and had five touchdowns and a field goal coming on drives of 60 yards or more.

*New Orleans won at Cincinnati 51-14, gaining 509 yards on 6.9 yards-per-play. The Saints scored touchdowns on…

Nobody needs to remind us that this has been a rather wacky year spreadwise in the National Football League:

On the flip side of things, teams such as Arizona and Denver - two teams that won't sniff the playoffs this season - have winning spread marks the past month of…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 10

The Pittsburgh Steelers looked like a Super Bowl team Thursday night in a 52-21 thrashing of the Carolina Panthers. Sharps (professional wagerers) misread that one, loading up on the dog at +4 or better through the week. Is better news ahead for the Wide Guys? Let’s run through their action in other pro football matchups.

Note that there are byes this week for four teams: Baltimore, Denver, Houston, and Minnesota. Games are presented in Nevada Rotation order so you can make notes in your schedule.

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: November’s “Motivation Factors”

You longtime students here in my College of Advances Sports Betting and Handicapping know how much weight I put on THE MOTIVATION FACTOR when handicapping. Las Vegas point spreads can be off by two or three touchdowns when oddsmakers don’t properly account for the highs and lows of various scenarios.

You read that right. I didn’t say two or three points. I said two or three touchdowns. Motivated teams can post huge victory margins. Perhaps more importantly, teams completely lacking in motivation can get run off the field. And, there’s nothing oddsmakers can do about that. If a game “should” be…

As they like to say in the business, the Pittsburgh Steelers last night scored "half-a-hundy" on the Carolina Panthers with the 52-21 win at Heinz Field. Okay, so the 3.5-point favored Steelers laid a major beating on Cam Newton and Company but here's the real story on this NFL Week 10 tilt: Pittsburgh QB Ben Roethlisberger completed 22-of-25 passes for 328 yards and he threw five touchdown passes and absorbed a cheap-shot hit to…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Late Week Football

Great game set for Thursday night in the NFL, with two hot teams squaring off. Plus, some late-breaking news about a major college quarterback to talk about today.

Network Notebook: Media Focused on Wrong Betting News

While it’s great that sports betting is finally gaining acceptance across the country, the mainstream media has still fallen back into the bad habit of treating everything like a horse race. This isn’t politics! And, politics shouldn’t be treated that way to begin with. But, JIM HURLEY wants you to know that understanding how sports betting markets work is a lot more complicated, and INTERESTING than finding out if the public won today, or the house won yesterday, or whatever.

Yes, the general public had a huge Sunday this past week in the NFL. Many of their most popular betting teams…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 9

Fascinating start to the week with an unheralded third-string quarterback for San Francisco dominating the listless Oakland Raiders. A late-day announcement moved lines in the wrong direction, though some of that was a reaction to the “news” rather than money hitting the board.

I can tell you that, locally, there’s less excitement right now about the Raiders eventually moving to Las Vegas!

That will change when the arrival date gets closer. Las Vegas wants to be in the NFL. All of you reading this want to BET the NFL. Let’s see how sharps (professional wagerers) have been playing so far this seek.…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Re-Double Your Study of Defense

I’m now more convinced than ever that DEFENSE is going to be the decisive factor in determining success down the stretch and through the postseason in both college and pro football. That doesn’t mean I believe games are about to become low scoring. But, the ability to get stops or force turnovers will be the DIFFERENCE-MAKER that separates the great from the very good.

Imagine everyone in pro tennis having a big serve. It’s the guys who can also break serve who are going to win championships.

We’ve reached a point in the evolution of the sport where most offenses who know…

Network Notebook: Super Bowl Chase Wide Open

Don’t believe all the media hype you’ve been reading about this season’s Super Bowl being a virtual sure-thing to match the Los Angeles Rams against either the New England Patriots or Kansas City Chiefs.

Take last Sunday’s Green Bay/LA Rams battle for example. The Wise Guys POUNDED Green Bay at early lines of +9.5 or +9…and kept right on pounding the dog all the way down to +7. Green Bay led much of the…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Don’t Fall in Love with Overs

After all the high scoring football games Thursday night…and the subsequent reaction on social media…I felt I had to step in today to advise caution. Far too many casual bettors are saying things like “I’m just going to bet all the Overs now, this is too easy!” Or, “only an idiot would bet Unders the way nobody plays defense any more.”

Look, that was a high scoring night. And, both football and the NBA are definitely trending toward much higher scoring games because of rules changes. But, it’s important to keep in mind many of the following facts.

Game One in Boston isn’t until Tuesday night. That gives deep-pocked entertainment moguls time to get here and get down.

Of course, Boston has a big following too. Many sports fans and avid sports bettors from the northeast (Boston and New York) and midwest (Chicago) make their way out here in their later years. What better way to spend “retirement” than…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Quarterback Conundrums

We’ve reached the point in the season where many college and pro football teams start to give up the fight because their quarterbacks are so bad. We saw that to a degree with the Arizona Cardinals Thursday night. Josh Rosen threw an early touchdown pass to the wrong team…and then ANOTHER one…and his teammates went into the tank.

Buffalo has done that a few times with Nathan Peterman, who can’t stop throwing interceptions. He’s back in the picture after Josh Allen suffered an elbow injury in Houston last week. You could argue that the Jacksonville defense threw in the towel in…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Late Week Football

Not exactly a bunch of dream matchups in football the next few days. But, sharps (professional wagerers) aren’t betting for entertainment. They’re betting to make money! Let’s see how the Wise Guys have been betting Thursday and Friday night football, along with marquee matchups Saturday in the colleges. I’ll be back at the usual time Friday afternoon to look at the rest of the NFL.

 

THURSDAY NFL

DENVER AT ARIZONA: Some spots opened Arizona a slight favorite. Money hit the Broncos instantly at those stores, causing stragglers to open more toward pick-em or Denver -1. The line did get as high as…

COLLEGE FOOTBALL'S STREAKERS

Maybe you've checked it out already but "if the season was to end today" than the #1 and #2 seeds in the NFC would be the Los Angeles Rams and the New Orleans Saints, respectively; in the AFC they'd be the Kansas City Chiefs and then the tie-break winner between New England/Miami/Cincinnati/Baltimore.

Note that nowhere up above is there any mention of the Denver Broncos - the Super Bowl winner just three…

Network Notebook: Comparing ATS Extremes in the NFL

Six games into the 2018 pro football season, only one team is undefeated against the point spread. That’s the surprising Kansas City Chiefs, who have taken the NFL by storm with a slew of great performances against a tough schedule. Their most recent cover was this past Sunday night as an underdog of 3.5 points in a 43-40 loss at New England. That brought KC to 6-0 ATS.

There are no teams at 0-6 ATS out of the gate this season. And, only one team has failed to cover five times. That’s the Houston Texans, who are 1-5 ATS. Their only…

RODGERS AND THE PACK

 

In case you’re wondering, there are still eight (8) remaining undefeated teams out there in College Football-land – that’s Alabama, Cincinnati, Clemson, N.C. State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, UCF and USF – and there’s still a shot that four of ‘em will stay perfect right into the next edition of the College Football Playoffs.

But that’s not our numero uno concern right here and right now:

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Market Overrating Most Top College Teams

It was a sight to behold. I still can’t quite believe it myself and I’ve been following college football for a very, very long time. This past Saturday, Alabama…the #1 team in the nation…was barely able to cover its point spread as a big favorite against Missouri. The rest of the top 10? Nobody could cover a spread!

Well, #4 Clemson had a bye week. So, everybody who PLAYED was overrated by betting markets. Most by quite a bit. First let’s look at the carnage. Then, the Dean of Sports Handicapping will discuss why it happened.

 

#2 Georgia (-7.5) lost at LSU…

THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL REPORT: FOUR MORE TOP 10 TEAMS GET DUNKED

Let's just say that sudden live moves in NFL Week 6 didn't exactly pan out for the teams that were takin' the cash and it all began last Thursday Night when the Philadelphia Eagles dropped from a solid 3-point road favorite at the New York Giants down to 1.5 or 2 points (depending on your locale) before the Birds absolutely smashed the Jints 34-13 ... then it's onto Sunday:

The Cleveland Browns were everyone's darlings - we watched a…
