CAVS CRUSH SUNS BY 22 IN 50-UNIT NBA GAME OF WEEK...HIGHROLLERS 6-1 WITH LAST 7 - GO FOR 50-UNIT COLLEGE WINNER TONIGHT
By Kelso Sturgeon
Sharps, squares, wiseguys, comedians, doctors, lawyers, truck drivers, con men, priests, hairdressers, housewives, thieves, beggars, tap dancers, pretty young girls and ugly old hags one and all do not believe the Denver Broncos have any chance to beat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl, let alone cover. Betting money in Las Vegas and offshore continues to pour in on Carolina and the Panthers are now the -5.5-point and -6.0 favorites after opening at -3.5.
The money is showing up in rapid-fire fashion. When I began writing this column this morning, the number was a solid -5.5 at most books but in the last few minutes moved to -6.0 at most of the big offshore shops where the big bettors play. The avalanche continues.
Bookmakers admit they made a giant-sized mistake in opening the number at -3.5 and are already in a melt-down sweat because it has exposed them up to a variety of financial disasters, the greatest of which is getting crushed by middle bettors. Many bookmakers who have not attended a church or temple the past year will become very religious as they seek favor with God for a miracle.
At what point the number will begin to attract action on the Broncos is anyone's guess and I for one will remain on the sidelines until things settle down.
Jumping in at the right moment is extremely important in a world where bookmakers are resilient and will always give you all the barbed wire you can eat..
Whether Carolina gets it done a week from Sunday in Santa Clara California, early betting shows the money comes from the head and not the heart. In speaking to Las Vegas bettors, they all have the same thing to say and it goes something like this.
"I'm a great Peyton Manning fan and wish him the best but....."
Reality trumps sentiment when money is in play and that speaks well for the betting public.
The Numbers Right Now
One can still get down on Carolina at -5.5 but there is a big question whether that number will survive as the big books signal the big action has hit and that is the reason behind their betting line of -6. The total has remained at a solid 45, where it opened.
Monday line bettors will now have to lay $245 to win $100 on the Panthers but can get $205 for each $100 wagered on Denver.
Are The Outrageously Successful Warriors The Best NBA Team Ever And What Does It Mean To Bettors
I was the last guy in the world to admit Secretariat was one of history's finest thoroughbreds but it takes the judge of all judges - TIME - to draw conclusions as to what and who merits a special ranking. This brings me to the current terrors on the NBA - the Golden State Warriors who are off to a 40-4 start and crushing everything in their patch.
Four days later it is still difficult for me to get my arms around the fact Golden State destroyed the San Antonio Spurs (38-7) by 30 points. That just does not happen to a team that is as special as is San Antonio - but it did.
First of all there is some chance Golden State, the defending NBA champions, will merit the label of the best in history, even better than the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls who set the all-time won-lost mark of 72-10. For the record, the following season (1996-97, the Bulls had the second best regular season record at 69-13.
For the record, Golden State went 67-15 last season to record a top 10 ranking in all-time wins. Being impressed as a fan is one thing, but what does all this mean to bettors.
--Golden State is 26-17-2 against the spread (ATS) this season.
--In breaking down those numbers, the Warriors are 12-11-1 at home and 15-7-2 on the road, meaning bettors pay a big price to wager on Golden State at home, but find them pointspread bargain on the road.
--Totals bettors should play the "over" on the Warriors since they stand 28-18-0 in the totals department, meaning their games go "over" 60.9% of the time.
--Golden State is winning its games by an average of 12.5 points.
--The four teams - all of them at home - who have beaten Golden State this season are Detroit, 113-95, Denver, 112-110, Dallas, 114-91, and Milwaukee, 108-95. Well, nobody is perfect..
