Pooka Parks, Dumbest Women in America?

This was an actual post on the Roswell, GA Police Facebook page while the entire Atlanta metropolitan area was in virtual lockdown because of an ice storm. Best of all, the AMC Theatre is not even in Roswell. It’s in neighboring Alpharetta.

Seems the brilliant Ms. Parker believes police officers do not need to attend to stranded school busses full of young children. They need to be Pooka’s chauffeur.

NFL Super Bowl 48 Opening Odds and Line Moves Analysis

Time to analyze Super Bowl 48 odds and the early line movement between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. The game in East Rutherford, NJ (though the media is assured to say, “New York” ad nausea) and potential cold weather could be a factor.  The line opened up with Seattle as a one-point favorite at most sportsbooks with a total of 48. Money immediately flowed in on Denver and has seen the Broncos as much as a (-2.5) favorite. The total has remained steady at 47.5 says free sports picks though a 48 has been spotted at some offshore houses.

What is even more compelling is that heading into the conference finals, several major sportsbooks had an AFC vs. NFC prop to win the Super Bowl. The NFC was favorite by (-3). With both favorites winning, the likely matchup was Seattle and Denver when the spread was bettable.

So what has changed? The betting public has a very short attention span. The Broncos were dominant in dismantling New England 26-16 in a game that was not nearly as competitive as the final score would imply.

Seattle went down to the final possession against the 49ers, needing a now infamous Richard Sherman interception to preserve victory. Furthermore, Peyton Manning tossed for 400 touchdowns, assuaging the critics who questioned his big-game prowess.

In addition to short-term perception, Vegas contacts have told me they believe the Billy Walters picks betting syndicate is trying to manipulate the spread to (-3) to enable them unload on Seattle.

We expect the total to drop a bit, but probably not much until weather forecasts come in early next week for Super Bowl XLVIII. Speaking of weather, bettors should not fall prey to the inductive statistics that Peyton Manning struggles in cold weather.

Manning spent most of his career playing home games inside of a dome. Therefore his cold weather games were on the road. Wind conditions negatively affect offenses. A “Normal” amount of snow or rain, with wind below 10 mph, usually benefits the offense. When square players bet a total down because of rain or snow with negligible wind speed, it creates better value for the over.

Finally, one of our Golden Rules of sports betting applies here. The dictionary is a valuable tool when it comes to handicapping neutral games. Neutral games are neither home nor road games.

Squares robotically accept as true that that road statistics should be weighted more heavily in handicapping neutral games thinking it is a road game for both teams. No, a road game means a contest on their opponent’s field in front of their fans. The Super Bowl is a neutral contest for both squads.

Considering the more antiseptic atmosphere of the Super Bowl will allow each team to communicate audibles, the thought of road statistics slanted during evaluation is a delusion held exclusively by the inept gambler.

Market value in a point spread is without question among the most overlooked facets of sports betting. Knowledge of how much odds are based on perception and how much is based in reality is the most significant step in exploiting market fluctuations.

49ers vs. Panthers, Chargers vs. Broncos, Saints vs. Seahawks, Colts vs. Patriots Vegas Odds

Round 2 of the NFL playoffs odds are up according to OffshoreInsiders.com  as the Saints vs. Seahawks, Colts vs. Patriots are on Saturday. Sunday has the 49ers vs. Panthers, and Chargers vs. Broncos.

Saturday sees a battle of two teams that top NFL handicappers consider big “splits” teams, that is two teams much better at home than on the road, when the Saints take on Seahawks at 4:35 ET.  Appropriately, the rested Seahawks are laying (-8) with a total of 47.5.

At 8:15 ET Andre Luck and Tom Brady meet as the Colts try to continue their magic against the Patriots. New England is laying (-7.5) with an over/under of 53.

This is When We Knew We Were Done; Fall to 10-2 In Football

Joe Duffy’s Picks dropped to 10-2 in football. We knew we lost before it started.

This is What Pro Gamblers Demand and Get; Are You Next?

How appropriate that we went 2013 and begin 2014 with the same domination you have gotten for years. Joe Duffy’s Picks is 9-2 overall and 7-0 with top ranted Wise Guy plays. Congrats to those of you who lock in annually on Jan. 1. Here is what every pro gambler got from OffshoreInsiders.com anchor Joe Duffy’s Picks

Wise Guy

NORTH TEXAS -6.5 unlv

Yet again, a not-exactly-neutral game here. North Texas will travel 35 miles to Dallas. UNLV will travel 1068 miles to Dallas. North Texas had the 5th best MoC at +9.7.  They got more dominant once they went to a more ball controlled attack.

Going against underdogs of 3.5-10 points off two straight conference wins to a team off double-digit road win is 41-12 the last 10 years and 69-37 since 1992.

SOUTH CAROLINA +2 Wisconsin

Wisconsin will travel 1099 miles to Orlando. South Carolina 378. Folks, too many people overplay handicapping conference versus conference. But a team is 9-3 from a conference that is a cesspool of mediocrity and laying points to a 10-2 straight up team from the best conference in the country.  The fact Wisconsin lost three straight and the SEC has won seven straight national titles demands we cannot ignore the gap between the schedules these teams face.

South Carolina lost to a then healthy Georgia team that at the time was a true national title contender. They have one bad loss in the middle of a three-game SEC road trip.

No team has lost a smaller percentage of its fumbles this season than Wisconsin. The Badgers have coughed the ball up 17 times and recovered it 14, an 82.4 percent rate. The next highest rate among FBS teams is UCLA (72.7 percent). That stat has luck, not skill written all over it. That makes them overvalued.

The Gamecocks defensive line boasts two future NFL draft picks in Clowney and tackle Kelcy Quarles (9.5 sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss). This is something Wisconsin has never seen. They will shut down their running game.  Cocks win outright.

CENTRAL FLORIDA +17 Baylor

UCF has the best QB nobody seems to notice (except for pro bettors, NFL scouts and the like) in Blake Bortles. Baylor put up crazy numbers against a suspect schedule, but the time off will hurt the overachieving team.

UCF ranks 12th nationally in scoring defense, allowing less than 20 points per game, despite having just two seniors on its two-deep. Some may view that as a lack of experience. Sharps view that as a unit that will improve even more with all the extra practice time.

The Knights served notice early on they were a team that should be taken seriously. They went on the road and beat Penn State in Week 3. Then they gave South Carolina everything they had in a 28-25 loss that came down to the very end. They then beat Louisville.

Major

UNLV-North Texas UNDER 54.5

North Texas only allowing 18.1 points per game, 9th nationally.N Texas averaged 38.6 passes per game in their first games but 25.57 final seven.  That is why they went under 6-of-8 to close year. There is no reason to come out of their game plan as UNLV has the No. 1 pass defense in conference

UNLV gets .9 passing yards per attempt less than their opponents normally allow but hold teams .7 below. So again, why will this be anything other than a big ground game from both teams?

UNLV defensive coordinator Bobby Hauk is a defensive backs guru and that is where his team showed the most improvement. With a full month of practice, that will continue.

Iowa-LSU OVER 49

Iowa must deal with first-time starting quarterback Anthony Jennings. He is very talented and has the element of surprise. LSU has had plenty of time to prepare with him but Iowa has minimal game film to prepare for him. Against Arkansas, Jennings led the Tigers on a game-winning 99-yard touchdown drive that ended with a 49-yard touchdown pass.

Iowa has almost every offensive player coming back and they used the time off to continue to improve that unit.

Iowa offense in 2012 essentially consisted of two ball-carriers in Mark Weisman (159 attempts) and Damon Bullock (135 attempts) and three pass-catchers in Kevonte Martin-Manley (52 receptions), Keenan Davis (47) and Fiedorowicz (45). The touches were spread around much more this season.

Four Hawkeyes have more than 60 rushes, including Jordan Canzeri, who missed all of last season with a knee injury. Seven players have 12 or more receptions, including Tevaun Smith, who led Iowa in catches during conference play with 21, and Damond Powell, a junior-college transfer who averages 24.2 yards per reception.

CBB

Wise Guy

HARVARD -10 Boston College

BC is not only 2-9 against the spread, but also seven of the setbacks have been by double-digits. Again that is failing to cover by double-digits, not the straight up loss. So the oddsmakers are clearly behind them.

Our power ratings have them winning by 15. Harvard has covered 7-of-8 in the series. We do not normally put enormous stock in series angles, but we do when it is a rivalry of a mid-major covering against a team from a power conference. Harvard has a sell-out today and this is more of a one-way rivalry.

Major

AIR FORCE +10 Utah State

I cannot deny that Utah State surprised us how well they played without their best player Jarred Shaw. But they rode the emotion in a tournament that each team played three games in three days, then did roll in essentially an exhibition game.

But emotion can only go so far. Now they play their first road game without Shaw and the meat of their schedule begins. We look for Utah State to survive but the loss of Shaw catches up to them as they win a close game.

Quit Gambling if You Think Jaguars Winning Was an Upset! #nflpicks

In the midst of a great season, decade, and more than a quarter of a century, here is what Joe Duffy’s Picks gave you early:

JACKSONVILLE +559 Tennessee

Moneyline Game of the Year

Perhaps one or two may ask why if it is a Game of the Year, why do we rate it a Major? Folks, it is paying more than 5-1. The payoff will be much higher than a Wise Guy side or total. At that line, we only need to risk the amount for Majors. It is about the payout.

Road underdogs allowing 130 or more rushing yards/game, after gaining 99 or less rushing yards in five straight games are 17-9 straight up for 40.4 units. Yes, in 26 games, you won more money than you would going 26-0 against the spread.

We tell you time and time again, rest benefits the teams that need it the most. The bye is just what the Jags to regroup. They have played a pretty tough schedule, so they are not as atrocious as the numbers indicate. Jake Locker is a box of chocolates for the Tits. You never know what you are going to get, which makes fading him as a large favorite is a great percentage bet.

Simply put, if you really think this was an upset, you need to quit gambling. OffshoreInsiders.com will continue to give the picks of the pros
