College Football Gambling: Big Ten Crossover Games

07.31.2017     08:54 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick breakdown of the Big Ten's scheduling partners. Last season, the conference moved to nine games which caused obvious home/road imbalance. The East Division received the 5 home/4 road split which the West Division will now enjoy this season. Out of the East's top contenders (Penn State, Michigan, and Ohio State), the Wolverines draw the most favorable crossover slate with easy wins at Purdue and vs. Minnesota. They do however travel to Madison the week prior to taking on Ohio State. Penn State must travel to Iowa and Northwestern while playing home vs. Nebraska. Ohio State gets cupcake Illinois at home but goes to Lincoln and Iowa City. In terms of the West's crossover SOS, we'll grade it on the following questions: Do you play Rutgers? How many games to you play against Michigan, Penn State, and Ohio State? By those parameters, Iowa caught no breaks with home games vs. OSU and PSU as well as a road trip to East Lansing. Illinois does travel to Columbus but the rebuilding Illini get winnable home games vs. the East's two weakest teams in Rutgers and Indiana. Similar situation for fellow bottom feeder Purdue with Michigan at home and both the Scarlet Knights and rival Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Cincinnati Reds at Miami Marlins

Cincinnati (Stephenson) at Miami (O'Grady) -130 O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Miami

The Cincinnati Reds are a dead nuts bet-against team right now, a hopeless squad that has thrown in the towel on the 2017 campaign. Cinci opened the second half with a 2-8 homestand. They’ve gone 0-3 since hitting the highway, losing all three games in non-competitive fashion, by multi-run margins.

Quotes like this one from manager Bryan Price don’t inspire much confidence from this bettor – his entire focus is on evaluating talent for next year, not winning games this year: “These last 10 weeks are very important because I think we have to have a vision of what our starting rotation is going to look like in 2018, but we have to have that vision in 2017. I think it's going to be very difficult to come in and say, talk about, being really competitive if the vision isn't — if we don't know what 2018 is going to look like, at least from the outset.”

The Reds pitching staff is in shambles, bad news against a Marlins team that just pounded out a season high 22 runs last night in Texas. The Reds starters have Read more

College Football Betting News: Utah brings in new OC to spark stagnant offense

07.24.2017     10:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the constants for the Utah Utes program has been Kyle Whittingham who took over in 2005. Under his watch, the Utes are 104-50 including a stellar 10-1 in the postseason. The one inconsistency has been offense as the Utes ranked 11th of 12 in total offense in the PAC-12 five out of the last six years. Whittingham has tried out a lot of different offensive coordinators and schemes. He gave Norm Chow a shot as well as former quarterback Brian Johnson. Hell, even Dennis Erickson got a turn. This year, Whittingham is going with former high school and Eastern Washington coach Troy Taylor. In one season as EWU's passing game coordinator, the Eagles put up some sick numbers including 5,766 yards of total offense which was an FCS record. Since joining the PAC-12, Utah is 33-41-1 O/U. Perhaps this is the season the Utes produce better than average offensive numbers.

 

“I’m just big on trying a lot of different things," Taylor said. "If it works, great. If it doesn’t, there’s no harm

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston (Price) +105 at New York (Pineda) O/U 8
Recommendation: Boston

David Price spent the first two months of the season on the DL following an elbow strain in spring training. His first start back in the big leagues was a little bit rusty, lasting only five innings against the White Sox. Last time out, Price threw a seven inning gem against the Orioles, allowing just three hits in the process.

All the postgame quotes following that contest scream "bet on" for David Price moving forward. Price: "I felt good. Just trying to make better pitches. I don't want to be out there throwing 100 pitches or 90 pitches through five innings. I was back to being efficient, getting a lot of early outs and not giving up a whole lot of runs." Red Sox manager John Farrell: “He was outstanding. He was in complete control, and he got into a great rhythm.” Orioles manager Buck Showalter, after his team got dominated: “He’s one of those guys who’s adding pitches as he goes on in his career. He’s one of the best.”

Michael Pineda has a value problem. His advanced metric stats are elite, Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies at Minnesota Twins

Colorado (Chatwood) at Minnesota (Berrios) -127 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Minnesota

I don’t normally get involved with Game 2 of a doubleheader from a service standpoint, in large part because of the inability to gauge the effects of Game 1 on the two bullpens. But this game stands out as an exception to my basic ‘no doubleheaders’ rule for two reasons. First, we want to be on Jose Berrios RIGHT NOW, before the markets catch up. Second, both bullpens should be in decent shape after yesterday’s rainout.

Let’s start with Berrios who led the minor leagues in strikeouts in 2015. Last year, he dominated at Triple-A but struggled mightily in his transition to the majors; only notching an 8.2% swinging strike rate while nibbling around the corners instead of challenging hitters with his best stuff. The end result was downright ugly: 14 starts, an 8.02 ERA and a 1.87 WHIP, with the Twins going 3-11 in those games. Berrios stuff wasn’t the problem. His ability to harness his nasty stuff effectively was.

Well, that was last year. Berrios opened this season dominating Read more

NBA Betting News: Cleveland Cavaliers take both Game 1 and series money over Boston Celtics

05.16.2017     10:13 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Home court advantage? Whatever. Despite having it for their upcoming Easter Conference Finals series vs. Cleveland, the Boston Celtics opened big underdogs and are now even bigger following Game 1 and series money on the Cavaliers. Cleveland opened Game 1 -3 favorites and have since been bet up to -3.5/-4. CRIS opened Cleveland -465 for the series. That price is now north of -600. The Cavs have not played since May 7. The Celtics closed out Washington on Monday and have one day to rest/prep for Wednesday's Game 1.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles at Cincinnati Reds

Baltimore (Jimenez) at Cincinnati (Garrett) -105 O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Baltimore's Ubaldo Jimenez in theory gets a reprieve tonight by facing a National League team on the road. Unfortunately, that team, the Cincinnati Reds, having one of the hottest offenses in MLB. The Reds have pounded out six runs or more in half of their games including nine in last night's series opening win. The home run has played a big part with at least one in all but two contests. Jimenez continues to trend in the wrong direction with 10 earned runs allowed in two starts. He also flashes an alarming 23-11 GB-to-FB ratio. Not a good sign pitching in Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati counters with rookie Amir Garrett who has looked unhittable thus far with two earned runs allowed in two starts. Garrett's two opponents were favorable as Pittsburgh and St. Louis rank near the bottom of the NL in nearly every offensive category. His stuff is solid but not overpowering and he's also been fortunate with a .182 BABIP and 93% LOB rate. Tonight likely serves as a step up in class at Baltimore's lineup features a handful of capable right-handed bats. Don't Read more

NBA Handicapping: Players resting and big line moves highlight final day of regular season

04.12.2017     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's the final day of the NBA regular season and while nearly every playoff seed and matchup has been determined the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference is still up go grabs. Chicago, who plays host to Brooklyn, own the tiebreaker over Miami, who plays host to Washington. Unlike most lottery teams, the Nets haven't been in tank mode due to their draft pick being sent elsewhere. However, they decided tonight would be a good opportunity to rest some of their key players. This pushed the Bulls up from -9 to -14.5 favorites. The Wizards are sitting a bunch of guys as well but even if the Heat win (-8.5 to -11.5), a Bulls victory means Miami is out. Indiana sits a game ahead of both Chicago and Miami and should have any easy go of it against an Atlanta squad that is resting its starters. The Pacers were bet up from -7.5 to -14.5.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants at Arizona Diamondbacks

San Francisco (Moore) -120 at Arizona (Walker) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Under

Good move by the Arizona Diamondbacks in acquiring underachieving Taijuan Walker this past offseason. Walker, who is still only 24 years old, never lived up to his top billing in Seattle. The stuff is there but he's had mechanical issues as well as having dealt with bone spurs in his ankle much of last year. Now healthy and moving to the National League, it's a good opportunity for Walker to hit the ground running. San Francisco's Matt Moore enjoyed his own switch from the AL East to the NL West. While Moore's ERA remained the same, nearly all his peripherals improved including strikeouts (9.1 Ks per 9 IP) and FIP (3.53) during his 12 starts for the Giants. The first two games in the series, which were lined at 8.5 and 9 respectively, went over thanks to a few "big" innings. Even with the Chase Field roof open, I see two capable and perhaps underrated starters on the mound. We'll look to play under the key number of 9.5.
