    CIN AT CLE - CIN - TNF is old & feeble, was kind of hoping COVID19 would kill it off

    CAR AT TB - TB - I'm still pulling for TB & TB12
    LAR AT PHI - PHI - I don't like Rams after last week
    SF AT NYJ - SF - Jets channeling their inner Mets, doing what it takes to lose

    Uh huh. I wanted the 5 1/2 points I got at the sportsbook. I had the Raiders +5 1/2 and the 48.5 points over. I thought the Raiders would need the points and so did every oddsmaker in town. The spread dropped down to 3 at game time. It was the only game I bet this week.

    I wish you could see the stuff I post in B&I up in Silver. I can't post picks in this thread again because it is publicly viewable. My bad.

    ‘Super-Strong’ Betting on Las Vegas Raiders’ Home Debut

    For years, professional sports and Las Vegas went together like taking a hit on 20 in blackjack.

    [​IMG]

    The NFL wouldn’t even allow the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority to air Super Bowl ads during the championship game that capped the 2002 season. In 2007, Las Vegas hosted the NBA All-Star Game under the provision that sportsbooks wouldn’t take any bets on the game.

    In 2015, the NFL short-circuited a fantasy football convention featuring then-Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, among numerous other NFL players, because it was being held at a Las Vegas convention center connected to a casino.

    That’s all changed. The NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights, who debuted during the 2017-18 season, have been a major hit. And on Monday night, the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders played their first home game in $1.84 billion Allegiant Stadium. It was a historic moment, even if there were no fans in the stands due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    It really has come full circle,” Nick Bogdanovich, the director of trading at William Hill, told Casino.org on Tuesday. “We begged and pleaded for the longest time that, ‘It’s OK, it’s OK’ and, voila, all of a sudden, it happened.

    “I drive by that stadium on the Strip all the time and it’s weird that you can’t go in it and watch the games,” he continued. “You’ve got this shiny new toy and you can’t play with it. It’s very weird from that standpoint but it looked pretty beautiful inside, that’s for sure.”

    No Longer Taboo
    For the NFL, and professional sports in general, the arrival of the Raiders in Las Vegas was a white flag of surrender. For decades, the sporting world attempted to keep gambling at bay. In 1963, two of the NFL’s biggest stars, Green Bay Packers running back Paul Hornung and Detroit Lions defensive tackle Alex Karras, were suspended for the season for betting on NFL games.

    However, with the advent of sports betting technology and the rise of sportsbooks across the nation, the fear of having Vegas-based teams has died. Besides, there’s money to be made, as evidenced by the casino advertising ringing Allegiant Stadium.

    All the sports have embraced it,” Bogdanovich told Casino.org. “Listen, it’s part of society. In England, it’s been that way for a hundred years and now we’re with it. As long as people do it responsibly, it’s a great thing.

    “It makes the game much more fun. A lot of people in a blowout, they turn off their TV in the third quarter. Well, they’re not turning that TV off in the third quarter now because that over/under is yet to be decided or the player prop is yet to be decided. I think you’ll see people tune in for the whole game instead of leaving.”

    The Raiders had to pay the NFL a whopping $378 million to relocate from Oakland. Moreover, gambling means added interest in games, added interest in games means higher TV ratings, and higher TV ratings mean more money in the next set of TV contracts.

    Good Day for Sportsbooks
    While the pandemic has taken a big bite out of the number of people visiting Las Vegas and opening their wallet at casinos, the first game in Las Vegas was a win for sportsbooks.

    “It was super-strong,” Bogdanovich told Casino.org. “There were a lot of things going on. It was Vegas, obviously, being at home, but it was a classic matchup. Plus, the public had a really good weekend so they had more money in their pockets, so they probably bet extra on that game last night. There was a ton of money on that game.”

    Ed Salmons, the vice president of risk management and oddsmaking at Westgate SuperBook, said the first NFL game in Las Vegas was a “big deal.”

    We had a huge group of Saints fans in our sportsbook and tons of Raiders fans,” Salmons told Casino.org. “The handle for the game and halftime was much, much higher than a normal Monday night game. The result was very good for the book.”

    At William Hill, the Raiders were 4.5-point underdogs to the Saints, who were considered a top Super Bowl contender. Las Vegas delivered a 34-24 upset victory.

    “When it’s the last game of the betting cycle, all the liability is rolling into the one game, so it’s usually lose-lose,” Bogdanovich said. “We really needed Vegas to win outright, so it was a good result. New Orleans winning outright, we would have been just crushed. We didn’t really win anything but it was a great result for the house. It saved us from mass destruction.”
