Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting This Week’s Bowls

I’m posting earlier than normal this week because of all the weeknight bowls. Today I’ll talk about how sharps are betting all the bowl games from Tuesday through Saturday. There’s no Thursday night NFL this week…so I’ll cover the full pro football weekend in our standard Friday afternoon report.

 

Tuesday: Boca Raton Bowl

NORTHERN ILLINOIS VS. ALABAMA-BIRMINGHAM: This could be a great game…a battle of conference champions. An opener of UAB -1 was bet up to UAB -2.5, but not to the key number of three. Northern Illinois would bring in a lot of sharp money at that price because it’s a…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Utah State Cashes for 100 Units

Last Friday, I tried to step lightly around the fact that I was very confident about a 100-unit play I was releasing to clients Saturday. I was already planning this Monday tutorial because I knew Utah State (-7) was going to crush North Texas in the New Mexico Bowl.

The final score was 52-13, and it wasn’t really that close. Utah State took its foot off the gas after jumping to a 38-7 halftime lead. Among the highlights…

*Utah State won total yardage 556-313 despite relaxing. The Aggies might have gained 700 yards if there was any incentive to do so. There…

HOUSTON (9-4) at NEW YORK JETS (4-9) - 4:30 p.m. ET, NFL NetworkThe Texans aren't getting to the enemy quarterback much lately (just two totals sacks in their last two games) but better believe they'll give rookie QB Sam Darnold plenty to think about here ... and think about this: Houston's a solid 21-15-1 ATS (against the spread) as betting favorites since the start of 2014.

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 15

How about that Thursday night game?! Both the side and the total came down to the final moments in the Chargers/Chiefs thriller. You can imagine the tension in Las Vegas sports books. Then, the release of joy for Chargers and Over bettors, the cursing and misery for Chiefs and Under bettors. And, again, all the squares (public bettors) thinking they had a short cut by using KC in money line parlays started their week by swerving off the road.

Don’t bet favorites in money line parlays! Even if they might make sense at the regular spread, they’re going to lose outright…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Time Proven Keys for Early Bowls

Great to have a busy Saturday to kick off the 2018-19 college football bowl slate. As promised, I’m back to look at time-proven keys for handicapping the early bowl games.

The most important factor…and this has always been true since the bowls began…is THE MOTIVATION FACTOR. You want to bet ON teams who are most excited to be there and who are focused on getting a result. You want to bet AGAINST teams who are disappointed to be in this particular bowl.

Any team that has to “settle” for a bid to a lesser bowl is going to play at half-speed, maybe…

So, hats off to Chargers’ gutty head coach Anthony Lynn who took the challenge inside a noisier-than-you-can-believe Arrowhead Stadium and allowed 37-year-old QB Philip Rivers to lob the game-winning “two” to WR Mike Williams and thus knot up the AFC West:

It’s Chargers 11-and-3; Chiefs 11-and-3 and the whole AFC playoff picture just…

Network Notebook: Handicapping “Minor” Bowls

The college football bowl season officially gets underway this Saturday with five traditional “minor” bowls, and the recently added “Celebration Bowl” matching Alcorn State and North Carolina A&T. Always nice to have additional diversity for handicapping and betting purposes. (Though, don’t bet that game unless you know the teams!)

JIM HURLEY won’t post any official selections here in the HANDICAPPING NOTEBOOK. That wouldn’t be fair to all the customers who signed up for the bowl package. But, he’s happy to provide general tips for handicapping all the pre-Christmas games that mostly feature teams from mid-major conferences like the Sun Belt, Conference…

Just in case you wanted to be precise, NFL teams have now played 81.3 percent of their regular-season schedule as we head towards a gigantic Week 15 beginning with Thursday Night's Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs ... and yet with less than 20 percent of the sked still straight ahead, there's precious little that's been decided: The aforementioned KC Chiefs have clinched a playoff berth in the AFC while the New Orleans Saints and Los…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Super Bowl Chase Tightens

Earlier this season, it felt like the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs were on a collision course for the Super Bowl. Then, the New Orleans Saints replaced the Rams, New England started looking like its old selves on the scoreboard, and a little doubt was cast on who would play in the big game.

With three weeks left in the regular season, there’s now A LOT of doubt about who will play in the big game.

*The Los Angeles Rams continue to be overrated by the market (2-7-1 ATS their last 10 games), and unable to get meaningful scoreboard distance…

Hey, do you know anyone out there in the wagering world that had a Miami Dolphins / Oakland Raiders money line parlay in Sunday's NFL Week 14 action?

NFL Week 14 Major Showdowns

NFL WEEK 14 - EXPECT PLENTY OF SUNDAY SLUGFESTS

This is what they like to call "crunch time" in the business:

The NFL is in the final quarter of this here-and-now regular season - four games to go and plenty of playoff berths/positioning still up for grabs - and based on some recent history there's things to glean about individual teams when they get to this final "quarter" of the season:

For example, the Dallas Cowboys are a collective 3-7-2 ATS (against the spread) in their final four games of a season the past three years;The Denver Broncos are just 4-8 versus the…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 14

A lot of buzz here in Las Vegas about this particular NFL weekend. Some great matchups that will have playoff implications. I expect to see the most heavily bet NFL game of the season, in what might be the most active regular season pro football weekend of 2018.

Games are presented in Nevada rotation order. Two kickoff times have been changed for television.

 

SUNDAY

BALTIMORE AT KANSAS CITY: An opener of Kansas City -7.5 has come down through the key number of seven to Baltimore +6.5. That’s a huge move because it broke through the seven and wasn’t bought back up. This shows…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: College Hoops Extravaganza

I decided to devote today’s coursework to college basketball. There’s a fantastic schedule on Saturday because college football is off except for the Army/Navy game. Many teams you’ll be handicapping all through the new year into March Madness will be involved in “playoff style” matchups set up by TV networks.

Among the Saturday highlights:

Michigan State at Florida

Kentucky vs. Seton Hall at MSG

Georgetown at Syracuse

Louisville at Indiana

Wichita State vs Oklahoma in OKC

Wisconsin at Marquette

Creighton at Nebraska

Notre Dame at UCLA

That’s not even the full list of interesting games. Here in Las Vegas, we’ll be paying attention to  UNLV at Illinois and a few…

NFL Week 14: It’s All About Revenge

HERE'S THE SUNDAY SKED - IT'S NFL WEEK 14 AND IT'S ALL ABOUT THOSE "SECOND MEETINGS" ...PLUS, AN ARMY-NAVY PREVIEW

Thursday night's easy-as-pie 30-9 win/cover by the 5.5-point favorite Tennessee Titans over the downtrodden Jacksonville Jaguars - yes, we see you waving the white flag guys! - provided a glimpse into a so-called "second meeting" of the year between divisional rivals. In this particular case, score two straight for the Titans who also copped a 9-6 win as 10-point road underdogs way back in Week 3 action.

Sometimes an NFL team gets revenge in these "second meeting" ... sometimes not so much!So,…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Jags/Titans, Army/Navy + More

The “late-week” football schedule is quiet until the bowls. So, today’s report will focus on Thursday night NFL, Saturday’s Army/Navy game, and early betting in the most important bowl games that we’re all looking forward to. I’ll be back at the usual time Friday to run through the rest of this weekend’s NFL schedule.

 

THURSDAY NFL

JACKSONVILLE AT TENNESSEE: An opener of Tennessee -4 has been bet up to -5 or -5.5. depending on where you shop. We’re in the dead zone between the 3 and the 7, so there aren’t any “value” positions being taken in terms of key numbers. Sharps…

There's little doubt that the winner of the AFC South Division this year will be the club that resides deep in the heart o'Texas (see the 9-3 Houston Texans).

RICHIE BACCELLIERI JUMPING ON ALL THE VEGAS MISTAKES…COLLEGE HOOPS RIGHT NUMBER ON 14-4 TEAR

It never ceases to amaze and annoy me, how many otherwise savvy bettors pass up on basketball early in the season. Early in the season when the OPPORTUNITIES TO CASH IN ARE SO PREVALENT.   

Remember, I spent almost 20 years MAKING THE LINE at Caesar’s, MGM Grand and The Palms. I knew every betting pattern of the public and made the lines which protected the house.

Therefore, I know which teams they are overpricing and I know where all the bargain prices are. And when I add my College Basketball acumen to the formula it is no secret why I can…

Network Notebook: Why You Shouldn’t Bet Bowls Early

College football bowl odds have been up for a few days now. You haven’t seen much line movement. That’s for a very good reason. Most smart bettors know you shouldn’t bet bowl games in early December!

Why? Several reasons.

*First, it’s very common for suspensions to take effect…sometimes with SEVERAL players on the same team! Maybe it’s for academic reasons. Maybe it’s for misbehaving on the bowl trip a couple of days before kickoff. Maybe it’s for mouthing off to the wrong coach at the wrong time. But, the worst thing that can happen to a bettor is placing a big early…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: NFL Shockers Stun Media

Now that the mainstream media is paying more attention to point spreads and sports betting, they were in SHOCK at the number of upsets this past weekend in the NFL.

Hey, a lot of us were caught by surprise by some of these results. But, the fact that there were upsets late in the season isn’t unheard of. Not every team that “needs” to win for playoff positioning has either the talent or motivation to perform at peak levels every week. Not every doormat is just going to lay down and let opponents walk all over them game by game.

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 13

Some new quarterbacks in the NFL mix this week, which creates handicapping challenges for the general public. Sharps (professional wagerers) have ratings for all the backup quarterbacks so they’re prepared for late-season changes.

Let’s see how the Wise Guys have been betting this weekend’s pro football action. Already a surprise in the books as the Dallas Cowboys upset the New Orleans Saints Thursday night. Games are presented in Nevada rotation order.

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Speed Thrills in Conference Championships

Championship Week is about to begin in college football. There are two conference championships on the Friday night schedule (MAC and Pac 12), with most everybody else finishing out their seasons Saturday.

We’ve talked enough about PLAYMAKERS and GAMEBREAKERS in past coursework, as well as THE MOTIVATION FACTOR. You regular students have already handicapped this weekend’s slate from those perspectives.

What bettors need to think more about in these games is the impact of SPEED in the neutral site games played indoors on…

Network Notebook: Keys for Championship Week

JIM HURLEY loves Championship Week in college football because the full force of NETWORK’S team handicapping approach comes into play. It really pays to be in the middle of an information hurricane when all the marbles are up for grabs in a championship scenario. Oddsmakers are too “locked in” to their full-season Power Ratings, and are too timid to make the right adjustments. Well-informed expert analysis has little trouble finding soft spots to attack.

Obviously, we can’t go over EVERY edge and angle we’ve uncovered in this weekend’s games in a free web article. That wouldn’t be fair to paying customers.…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Should You Bet Parlays and Teasers?

It’s been a long time since I talked about making anything besides straight bets here in my College of Advanced Sports Betting. Generally speaking, you shouldn’t worry about parlays and teasers if you’re in the early stages of your career as a sports bettor. And, you should only get involved minimally if you’re more experienced and trying to earn a living.

In fact, one of the surest signs that a better is no longer a square (to use common industry parlance for the general public) and is getting more sharp is that they’ve trimmed parlays and teasers from their repertoire.

You’re about to be overwhelmed by media pundits and TV touts talking about how a team is a smart bet or has upset potential because they “need to win.” No doubt, SOME of those WILL be. They’ll rise to the occasional and get the job done. Will all of them?

Hardly. The main problem with “need to win” teams this late in the season is that they many have flaws or they wouldn’t have such urgency in the first place. The New York Giants “need” to win to stay alive in the NFC East race. They’re 3-7! Many NFL teams are…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: How to Handicap Thanksgiving Football

As promised, I’m going to talk today about how to handicap “holiday” week football games. I won’t get specific about individual teams because I need to protect that information for paying clients. (Thanks, by the way, to all of you who signed up for my 200-unit winner on Navy over Tulsa this past Saturday). I will focus on the elements of THE MOTIVATION FACTOR that typically loom the largest over Thanksgiving weekend.

We’re going to see some extreme results this week. Teams who lack motivation against opponents that don’t get their juices flowing are going to miss the market by a…

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)

Houston (6-3) at Washington (6-3)
