Betting on NBA

Now that the NFL season and Super Bowl are over it’s time to move onto another sport for gambling amusement.  Usually from the NBA All Star game through the summer I like to bet on the NBA a little.

Much like other sports I bet with trends, recent history and always keep home court in mind.  I’m not great at math, so I don’t run statistical probability.  Recently the folks at Wizard of Odds had an article on just that.  I’ll share the highlights without the actual statistics.

Betting against the spread.

..if you must bet basketball blindly, your best bet is to bet on visiting underdogs, at a house advantage of 3.19%, when laying 110. 72% of the time the home team is favored, so there should be no shortage of opportunities to bet the other way.

This goes against traditional thought that the home team is always a good bet. I find this a little surprising, but for blind statistical advice I take this to heart.  This makes statistical sense when looking at the numbers.  I learned a little something here.

Over/Under bets

There is no significant difference between betting overs and unders in the NBA…The small difference between overs and unders is statistically negligible.

This makes 100% sense to me and is why I will usually stay away from over/under bets.  I only bet over/under if there is a specific match up that trends one way or the other.  I usually look at 5 recent home scores for the home team and 5 recent road scores for the road team.  If both sides are 80% one direction I’ll usually place a wager.

The article has much much more, but I don’t buy points or play teasers.  I do enjoy playing parlays and I recommend you check Wizard of Odds for statistical analysis.  The information provided doesn’t really do anything for me.

Card Counting Goes High Tech

An Australian company, webtopia, has created an application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch to help people to count cards in blackjack.

450895321

I usually play blackjack socially so I’m not much into card counting.  I’d rather focus on drinking beer or vodka while hanging with good friends.  I’m not afraid of finding a tool like this to make me a better gambler, but I’m not sure I could never get away using this at a table.  I already get yelled at…a lot…by dealers and pit bosses for using my blackberry.

There is video on the webtopia site.  My flash player isn’t being nice so I’m not going to post it here.  If you’re into this, please comment with feedback.

Slot Machine Payouts – February 15, 2009

I find slot machine payouts very interesting and my slot play will sometimes fluctuate depending on the payout number.  Below are the places I gamble most.  You can see complete information here.

Atlantic City
Borgata        91.8
Trump Taj Mahal 91.4 *
Resorts     91.3 *
AC Hilton     91.3 *
Trump Marina     91.3 *

Connecticut
Foxwoods    92.1
Mohegan Sun    91.4

Nevada
Downtown Vegas     92.9 *
North Las Vegas    92.8*
Las Vegas Strip 92.8 *

Note: North Las Vegas: Santa Fe, Fiesta. Boulder Strip: Sam’s Town. Downtown Vegas: Fremont St casinos. Balance of County includes Orleans, AZ Charlies and casinos in Primm.

The only casino I’ll be playing any time soon will be the Borgata in Atlantic City next month.  They have the highest payouts in Atlantic City.  I’ll dig a little more into the NJ gaming commission reports to see which denominations actually pay out the best.  Of course I’ll post my findings here.

Super Bowl Prop bets..pray for the best!

I’ve been sitting on these Super Bowl prop bets all week and have pushed the button today.  I only bet what I can research with sports betting.

Picks and thoughts on the picks are below.    All lines are from sportsbook.com.

Jeff Reed – Total Points – Must Play
(All lines are from sportsbook.com)
Total Points Under 8.5 (-145)

Jeff Reed has only gone over 8.5 points once in the last week.  If the game comes in under as I predict this will be a winner.

Karlos Dansby – Total Solo+Assisted Tackles – Must Play (All lines are from sportsbook.com)
Solo+Assisted Tackles (Sacks Do Not Count) Over 7.5 (-115)

Karlos had 8 tackles in the first 2 playoff games and only 5 against the Eagles.  The Eagles don’t run, so the LB made less tackles.  Since the Steelers will run, I’m expecting an easy cover here.

Antrel Rolle – Total Solo+Assisted Tackles – Must Play (All lines are from sportsbook.com)
Solo+Assisted Tackles (Sacks Do Not Count) Over 4.5 (-140)

Antrel has made more than 5 tackles in 6 of the last 8 games.  He’s also made many tackles against running teams so I’m going with the over here.

Will a Ben Graham Punt Result in a Touchback (No Punt No Wins) – Must Play (All lines are from sportsbook.com)
No -260

Ben Graham is a toss up to play, but I love this pick.  He’s only had one touch back all year.  If he’s hurt and plays I don’t see him out kicking his coverage.

Those are my picks…good luck on yours!

Super Bowl picks are in!

I was holding off on making my picks but noticed that the spread on the game went to the Steelers – 6.5.  6.5 was my trigger and I pulled it and parlayed with the under which is 46.5.

Why did I choose the Steelers?

I’ve liked the Steelers for since they beat the Ravens.  I’ve been reading and watching and listening for a reason to not bet on the Steelers.  Nothing swayed me.  Still I held out.  I’ve been been waiting for the past 12 days for the line to move the half point from 7 and it finally did.  The reason I wanted the extra half point is that I didn’t want a push with a 7 point win.  I want to win.

Why did I choose the Under?

A major reason for choosing the Steelers is their defense.  If the Steelers win I think the winning score will be an average score in the low to mid 20’s.  Combined with a 6.5 spread I will win my parlay.

Props will be chosen tomorrow.  Check out sportsbook.com for the latest lines.

Are Fantasy Games Gambling?

ESPN‘s Streak for the Cash is a fantasy sports game with great prizes.  I don’t think this  is really gambling because there is no wagering involved.  However, the action allows for a similar rush because of the cash prizes.  For someone like me that enjoys sports betting this is just another outlet with no risk.  You can only have one pick going at a time which makes pick choices very key in this game.

The prizes help define the object of the game.  The prizes are:

  • GRAND PRIZE: $1,000,000 dollars to the first entry to build a streak of 27 wins in a row.
  • 2ND PRIZE: $10,000 dollars to the entry with the longest streak at the end of the contest period (which was not the Grand Prize entrant).
  • MONTHLY PRIZE (4): $2,500 per month to the entry with the most wins.

The first grand prize was won in December.  $1,000,000 makes for a nice holiday gift.  Since then they raised the streak for the million dollar prize to 27 correct picks in a row without a loss.

I enjoy that the selection is mostly games that I wouldn’t bet.  I’ve found myself going back to this website often when I have free time to check if I can make another pick.  As nice as the Grand Prize is, I’m not very concerned with how my picks do.  I’m more concerned with making my next pick.  That’s probably a gamblers rush, but I just want to move on to the next pick.  I figure that the better my picks are the better my chance of getting any of the prizes.  Bottom to top.

Do you enjoy fantasy games too?  Do you find them to be gambling?
