Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps Are Betting Thanksgiving Weekend Football

Sharps have already been very active in Thanksgiving Day football. Let’s take a look at how the Wise Guys have been betting the big holiday matchups, plus select games from Friday and Saturday. Then, I’ll be back Friday afternoon to review the rest of the NFL weekend.

 

THANKSGIVING DAY AND NIGHT

Minnesota at Detroit: Most stores opened the game around pick-em or Minnesota -1. Sharps were very impressed with the Vikings last week against the Rams, and drove the game all the way up to the key number of three. As of yet, still not much buy back on the Lions. So,…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: More on Motivation

Last week in this space I talked about the importance of recognizing when NFL teams are playing with a sense of urgency, and…to a lesser extent, recognizing when other teams had given up hope. Understanding those dynamics helped key a 5-2 Sunday for my clients and I in pro football that featured a sweep of my two 50-unit releases.

After discussing the Nathan Peterman situation in our last class get-together here in my College of Advanced Sports Betting, I ultimately decided to hit the Los Angeles Chargers hard. They were the first of my two 50-unit releases. Though I respected Sean…

Network Notebook: #1 Alabama at #6 Auburn

Two Saturdays ago, the Auburn Tigers upset then #1 Georgia in blowout fashion between the hedges at Jordan-Hare Stadium. This coming Saturday afternoon, another chance to take out the team atop the Playoff Poll when hated state rival #1 Alabama comes to visit in a game that will be nationally televised by CBS.

While Auburn is just as potent talent-wise right now as they were when Georgia came calling, they will have lost some of the “intangible” advantages they enjoyed that afternoon.

*Alabama won’t come in as overconfident as Georgia was

*Alabama won’t panic if they fall behind the way Georgia did

*Alabama knows…

Wayne Root: UCLA Fires Jim Mora After Loss to USC

I can’t say I was surprised that UCLA fired head football coach Jim Mora Sunday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the Bruins lost again to archrival USC. That was a pointspread winner on my ROOT TRUST because I expected UCLA to play hard in a game that barely mattered to USC. Mora’s job was very much in danger even if the team had won! When they lost, you knew his days were numbered. (Especially with Chip Kelly still available to return to Pac 12 sidelines!)

Should UCLA have waited until after the California game to fire Mora? Some would say…

Jim Sez NFL Sunday Showdown Previews

THE NFL WEEK 11 MENU - FOUR (4) BIG SUNDAY PREVIEWS

'Twas the weekend before Thanksgiving and there's plenty of NFL "creatures" that are stirring - there's the New Orleans Saints (say what!) riding a seven-game SU (straight-up) winning streak and looking very much like a legit Super Bowl 52 contender and what about the born-again Los Angeles Rams who zoom into Sunday's high-profile tilt in Minnesota - yes, the site of the aforementioned upcoming Super Bowl - having won/covered four in a row (and five of their last six games).

Now, that's some serious "stirring", no?

Wayne Root: Big Bettors Fading Oakland Raiders Hard

If you’ve been watching the betting markets this week, you know that the New England Patriots have been getting a lot of attention in this Sunday afternoon’s game in Mexico City against the Oakland Raiders. The general public has most of its influence over the weekend. So, you should know that much of that “disrespect” for the Raiders is coming from professional bettors.

Does anybody believe in the Raiders any more? Are they going to revert back to being a bad team just before they move to Las Vegas. THE KING OF LAS VEGS sure hopes not. But, as a contrarian…

Network Notebook: NFC Trio of Marquee Matchups

The NFC has been fascinating to watch this season…as new contenders have risen to the top to challenge recent winners for the right to represent the conference in the Super Bowl. Many of the biggest threats crash head-to-head this weekend in must-see games for bettors and handicappers.

LA Rams at Minnesota (Sunday afternoon)

Philadelphia at Dallas (Sunday night)

Atlanta at Seattle (Monday night)

That bottom game features two teams who have represented the NFC in the last three Super Bowls. The three new up-and-comers (Rams, Vikings, and Eagles) are in earlier action. Who’s most likely to make a big announcement this week about their…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Week 11 NFL

The Pittsburgh Steelers solidified their spot atop the AFC seedings race with a big Thursday Night win over the Tennessee Titans. Pittsburgh entered the week tied with New England for the best conference record, but will get the Patriots at home in a few weeks. Let’s see how sharps have been betting the rest of this weekend’s NFL ticket. As always, games are presented in Nevada Rotation order.

Detroit at Chicago: Nothing happening on the team side, as Detroit is still a solid -3 everywhere as a road favorite. Sharps would fade any move off the key number. Tougher to like…

THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF RANKINGS (AND WHAT IT ALL MEANS)

Listen up …There’s 14 games on the NFL Week 11 menu and – believe it or not – 10 of these games “feature” one or both teams with losing records. Ugh!

Thankfully, the Thursday Night Football game here ain’t one of ‘em!

In fact, the Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers have combined for 13 SU (straight-up) wins so far on the 2017 season and both are neatly positioning themselves for a post-season berth – providing…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting Titans/Steelers (plus some colleges)

Normally in this spot, I’d talk about the Thursday night NFL game and the marquee matchups coming up Saturday in college football. We’ll definitely look at Titans/Steelers momentarily. But, Saturday? There aren’t ANY truly great matchups. The closest thing to a huge game is Michigan at Wisconsin. Michigan’s been a disappointment this season, and Wisconsin is the least respected Final Four contender in terms of Las Vegas Power Ratings.

I did find a few matchups to talk about that feature some bowl-caliber teams going head-to-head. Let’s jump in, starting with tonight’s potential NFL playoff preview in Pittsburgh. Games are listed in…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Lessons From Buffalo Benching Taylor

Wednesday morning Las Vegas time, Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott announced that he was benching starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor in favor of backup quarterback Nathan Peterman. While that might seem harsh to many of you, given how great the Bills looked a few weeks ago when beating the Oakland Raiders 34-14, it’s at least a sign that Buffalo has a sense of urgency about THIS season.

If you’ve been watching a lot of NFL lately, you’ve noted that many teams have lacked that urgency. Some teams even seem to be losing on purpose to position themselves for next year’s draft…

Network Notebook: #5 Wisconsin vs. #19 Michigan

No remaining major contender for the Final Four has had it so easy. The Wisconsin Badgers are still undefeated because they had an easy non-conference schedule, and also play in the weaker half of the Big 10. Iowa was a potential threat last week, but offered little resistance in a huge letdown spot after an upset of Ohio State.

It’s telling that this week’s Wisconsin home game against Michigan is the first real threat…and even that doesn’t seem very hard! Michigan has been a big disappointment this season. They were supposed to be part of a “Big Three” in the Big…

Wayne Root: Pinnacle Blowout Winner Auburn Leads Undefeated College Weekend

As you were reading all about the marquee matchups in your Sunday morning newspaper, you had to be thinking that WAYNE ALLYN ROOT must have had a fantastic day.

You were right!

My PINNACLE play on Auburn (+2) over Georgia won 40-17. And, it was 40-10 before Georgia scored a garbage time touchdown. I knew that Georgia could come in conservative and nervous as the #1 team in the Playoff Poll. Auburn took the game by the throat and own a laugher. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting a 40-10 fourth quarter lead! But, I was confident Auburn would win…

Network Notebook: Did New England Lose its Championship Gear?

Even though the New England Patriots are still very much on the short list for potential Super Bowl champions, they sure aren’t playing like a juggernaut this season. As they head into Sunday night’s road battle against the Denver Broncos on NBC, there are legitimate questions about whether or not the Belichick/Brady era has come to an end.

Of course, people have been saying that for years!

This time around, the issues are…

*Brady’s offense isn’t exploding any more. It’s trying to manufacture victories with finesse and guile. That’s usually the last resort in a championship game against another league power…not something you…

Wayne Root: Ezekiel Elliott Suspension May Inspire Cowboys

I’m very interested in seeing what happens Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Atlanta Falcons in a huge NFC Showdown. And, that’s not just because it’s a battle of playoff teams from last season, and a potential playoff preview for this coming January. I want to look at how the Cowboys handle the absence of Ezekiel Elliott.

As you surely know, Elliott’s six-game suspension will begin this week. If there was going to be a suspension, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Dallas is currently 5-3, which means they’ve only played eight games. Elliott will be back in…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 10

Seattle and Arizona played to a push for most bettors Thursday night (though sharps won with the dog at +6.5). Let’s take a look at line moves and sharp betting tendencies for the rest of the Week 10 NFL card. Games are listed in the order of the Nevada Rotation.

Minnesota at Washington: Not too much going on here. The opening line of Minnesota -2.5 is down to -1.5. Two isn’t a very common result. But the fact that it moved away from the key number of three is telling. Sharps don’t like the favorite or we would have moved quickly…

NFL WEEK 10 SWINGS INTO ACTION WITH SEAHAWKS-CARDINALS DUEL IN THE DESERT

Okay, College Football Playoff committee, we see what you're doing:

Just two weeks into the CFP rankings, it's becoming quite obvious that who you play is more important than whether or not you win the games against the folks that you do play.

Case in point here are the now-#8 Wisconsin Badgers who can't seem to climb the ladder despite the snazzy 9-and-oh SU (straight-up) record. True, the Badgers hardly have played a "who's…

Some huge games in college football this week. We’ll cover those today. Then, I’ll come back tomorrow to cover sharp betting in Sunday and Monday NFL.

As always, games are presented in the order they appear in the Nevada Rotation so you can make notes in your schedule. I’ll start with a few high-profile matchups from Thursday and Friday.

 

THURSDAY

Seattle at Arizona: The Seahawks opened at -6.5 on the road against their divisional rival. Given their shaky recent form (like losing at home last week to Washington!), there was no interest on the favorite. Sharps realized they weren’t likely to get the…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: College Defenses Getting Tired

Even though The Dean of Sports Handicapping is always encouraging you to work your butt off, I know that too many of you don’t read college football boxscores. You think it’s enough to know the pointspreads, know the final scores, watch a few games on TV, and then check out the evening highlight shows to see what happened elsewhere.

You know who does that? What we in Vegas call “squares.” They watch games on TV, check out the final scores, and think that they’re experts. Then they go out and lose the next week because they don’t know what really happened…

Network Notebook: #3 Notre Dame at #7 Miami

Disney won’t let the TV networks dwell too much on the storied past of the Notre Dame vs. Miami rivalry. That’s fine this season. Because both teams control their own destiny in terms of reaching the Final Four playoff.

*Notre Dame was #3 in the playoff poll last week, and didn’t hurt their cause with a double digit win over Wake Forest that saw their offense gain more than 700 yards! True that they didn’t cover the Vegas spread. The selection committee doesn’t worry about that stuff. If the Irish keep winning (at Miami, vs. Navy, and at Stanford), then an…

Wayne Root: Public Still Overrating Ranked Favorites

If you were paying even casual attention to college football this past Saturday, you surely noticed that UNDERDOGS were covering the games involving the highest ranked teams. That was a key part of my 80% performance in THE ROOT TRUST that day. The public continues to overestimate the blowout potential for teams fighting to get a Final Four berth in the National Championship race.

A quick run-through from the top 7 in the playoff rankings…

#1 Georgia (-23) barely even scored the pointspread in a 24-10 win over South Carolina. This was a very tough sandwich spot for the Bulldogs, after their…

There's no two ways about it:

Right here at the halfway point of this here-and-now 2017 National Football League season, the disappointing teams clearly outrank the "pleasant surprises" as we point to the likes of the Denver Broncos (3-5), the Cincinnati Bengals (also 3-5), the New York "Football" Giants (1-7) and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-6) as NFL squads that have waved the proverbial white flag on…

Wayne Root: It’s Now or Never for the Oakland Raiders

The Oakland Raiders enter this Sunday Night’s TV game on the road against the Miami Dolphins with a 3-5 record. It would be 2-6, but the Silver and Black scored in “extra time” to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in a recent Thursday night rivalry game.

For a team that was supposed to be a playoff contender…and the team that took the most bets to win the Super Bowl here in Las Vegas because local fans wanted to show support… the 2017 season has been a big disappointment. They were supposed to be 5-3 or 6-2 heading into this game! Not…

Network Notebook: Could Kansas City/Dallas be Super Bowl Preview?

It may not be an exact preview of this coming February’s Super Bowl. But, Sunday’s “Game of the Week” clash between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Dallas Cowboys should be one of the true highlights of the second half of the NFL season.

*Both teams are on the short list of Super Bowl threats in their respective conferences. Kansas City has been there all season, after routing New England on the road in Week One. Dallas has finally started playing like the NFC power they were last season.

*Both teams are relatively healthy and in good-enough form. Kansas City just beat…

Richie Baccellieri: How Sharps are Betting NFL Week 9

Back now to take a look at the rest of this weekend’ NFL action. The NY Jets cashed the first ticket of the week Thursday night with a surprisingly easy win over the Buffalo Bills. We move to Sunday. Games are listed in Nevada Rotation order.

Denver at Philadelphia: There was a quarterback change here, but no line change. Philadelphia had been -7.5 when Trevor Siemian was the projected QB. Brock Osweiler will get the start instead. The market sees him as just as bad as Siemian. If the line doesn’t move from here, Philadelphia -1.5. will be a popular choice…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Vegas Cleaning up Against Lottery Mentality

News just came out Tuesday about the absolute killing Las Vegas sportsbooks made in football back in September. Handle was up big over last year. Hold was historic. What’s important for you students here in my College of Advanced Sports Betting is the knowledge that the key factor in that profit was “parlay cards.”

Some of you in other parts of the country may not be familiar with these. You’re used to thinking about making straight bets or Over/Under plays against the lines you see offshore or in your local newspaper. Here in Vegas, all the sportsbooks offer parlay cards that…

Both teams are currently 7-1 straight up. Finishing 12-1 straight up with a win in the Big 12 Championship game should certainly be enough to reach the brackets in most seasons. Yet…

Wayne Root: Notre Dame is Making Me a Believer

As a bettor who’s spent most of his career successfully fading Notre Dame because they’re usually overhyped and overpriced, I have to admit that the Irish are convincing me that they just might be a sleeper in the National Championship picture.

Given their current #5 ranking in the AP poll, it’s going to be very hard to keep the Irish out of the Final Four if they win their remaining games. With a 7-1 record already banked, up next are…

Saturday: vs. Wake Forest

Network Notebook: Will the Pittsburgh Steelers Break Your Heart?

The Pittsburgh Steelers are now the new “it” team in the AFC. As they prepare for a big Sunday Night matchup on NBC against the Detroit Lions, the Steelers find themselves front and center in Super Bowl discussions.

*Kansas City is always going to be a contender, yet always seems likely to bang their heads on the ceiling come playoff time.

*Nobody in the AFC South seems ready to string together playoff wins.

Wayne Root: Will Houston/Seattle NFL Game Set Up a Sleeper?

I’m very interested in watching this Sunday’s Houston Texans/Seattle Seahawks game in the NFL because the winner will be well-positioned for a run from off-the-radar into the postseason. You regulars know that WAYNE ALLYN ROOT is always thinking ahead to find potential shockers. This winner could use the victory as a launching point to go deep.

Some of you might be surprised that I’m thinking of Seattle in this light. Aren’t they a perennial Super Bowl threat? The market isn’t thinking of them that way any more. Philadelphia is now getting all the media attention in the NFC. New Orleans has…

Minnesota vs. Cleveland (in London, England): An opener of Minnesota -7.5 rose quickly to -9 or higher because of interest in Minnesota…and because sportsbooks didn’t want the Vikings sitting in the teaser window. At any line of -7.5, -8, or -8.5, books would have been flooded with two-team teaser bets featuring Minnesota at -1.5, -2,…

COLLEGE FOOTBALL REPORT: OUR DEBUT EDITION OF THE JIM SEZ HEISMAN TROPHY WATCH LIST ...AND IT'S WHO'S HOT SPREADWISE IN THE COLLEGES

Let's be honest ...It's not often that you'll see an NFL totals price at/around 37 points unless it's a bad weather game ... but when the Miami Dolphins and Baltimore Ravens collide on Thursday Night Football the good folks in Las Vegas don't expect to see a whole lot of fireworks.

THE WORLD SERIES OPENS UP IN HOT, HOT, HOT LA-LA LAND

Gotta admit to y'all that we were starting to think all about "Super Bowl 52" when the Philadelphia Eagles were en route to their 34-24 win/cover versus the 5-point underdog Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football.

Heck, the Eagles exited the game at 6-1 SU (straight-up) with a commanding lead in the rough-and-tumble NFC East - Dallas and Washington currently are tied for second place at 3-3 - and…

Kelso’s Advanced Sports Betting: Media Hype Inflating Point Spreads

I’ve talked about this in past seasons. But, it seems a refresher course is in order because media hype is having a big influence on pointspread performance this season in both college and pro football. And, we’re just now getting to the point of the season where it gets even MORE intense because of Final Four talk in the colleges and chatter about the playoff races in the pros.

Some bettors had hoped that the recent media “explosion” toward more channels, more outlets, more radio shows, more podcasts, more social media, more analytics, would lead toward better information being made available…

Network Notebook: #2 Penn State at #6 Ohio State

Wow, the #2 Penn State Nittany Lions sure looked fantastic this past Saturday night against the overrated Michigan Wolverines. They scored early and often on the way to a 42-13 blowout. Even after calling off the dogs in the fourth quarter, they gained over 500 yards and averaged better than eight yards-per-play.

This week’s challenge should be much more daunting. Instead of being a home favorite of about eight points over Michigan (bet down from a dozen), the Nittany Lions will be +6 on the road in Columbus. Can Penn State make it two straight? Or, is Ohio State a Final…
