Canadian Football League Betting Preview: Ottawa Redblacks

Ottawa Redblacks (2015: 12-6 SU, 12-6 ATS, 10-8 O/U)

The defending East Division champions will have a major challenge on their hands in trying to duplicate 2015’s success. Everything went right for Ottawa as it jumped from 2-16 in their expansion season to 12 wins and in the process advancing to the Grey Cup. Regression almost seems too obvious but keep in mind the East continues to be the weaker of the two divisions and the remaining teams all have question marks of some kind. Ottawa’s success came in large part because of 41-year-old quarterback Henry Burris who posted a 70.9% completion rate and an incredible 101 QB rating; 93.4 and 78.7 the previous two seasons. It’s not realistic to expect him to match 2015’s production. Burris does however possess one of the best receiving corps in the CFL led by Greg Ellingson, Chris Williams, Ernest Jackson and Brad Sinopoli.

Ottawa did lose upwards of a half dozen of their veteran players to free agency. The departures of offensive lineman Colin Kelly and defensive stalwarts Shawn Lemon, Justin Capicciotti, Keith Shologan and Jovon Johnson will be big obstacles to overcome early Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Cleveland Indians

Cleveland Indians
2015 W-L:
  81-80
2015 O/U:  79-80-2
2015 Profits:  -13.2 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  85.5
2016 AL Central Odds (Westgate):  9/5
Projected Starting Rotation: Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Trevor Bauer, Danny Salazar, Josh Tomlin
Key Departures:  Ryan Webb, Chris Johnson, Mike Aviles
Key Additions:  Mike Napoli, Rajai Davis

Handicapper's Take: "Armed with the best starting rotation in the AL Central, the Cleveland Indians are projected to be Kansas City's closest competition this season. In fact, a number of sportsbooks currently have the Tribe with a higher season over/under win total and shorter odds to win the division.

Shortstop Francisco Lindor, who is projected to be the cornerstone of the organization, produced All-Star level numbers (.313, 12 HRs, 51 RBI) in only 99 games last season. And Mike Napoli was brought in to add pop to a lineup that had Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Miami Marlins

Miami Marlins
2015 W-L:
  71-91
2015 O/U: 77-77-8
2015 Profits:  -14.1 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  78.5
2016 NL East Odds (Westgate):  10/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Jose Fernandez, Wei-Yin Chen, Tom Koehler, Jarred Cosart, Adam Conley
Key Departures: Casey McGehee, Henderson Alvarez, Donovan Solano
Key Additions: Chris Johnson, Wei-Yin Chen

Handicapper's Take: "Miami returns a lot of last year's group but with three major differences from that should help its cause. First, the Marlins will begin this year with a healthy Jose Fernandez who missed the first three months last year. Second, the once less than ideal managerial situation has been solved with the hiring of Don Mattingly. And third, Giancarlo Stanton is back to full health after a hand injury sidelined him for the final 88 games of last season. 

Miami has lowered the height of the fences all the way around Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Atlanta Braves

Atlanta Braves
2015 W-L:
  67-95
2015 O/U: 81-72-9
2015 Profits:  -16.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  67.5
2016 NL East Odds (Westgate):  80/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Julio Teheran, Matt Wisler, Manny Banuelos,  Bud Norris,  Michael Foltynewicz
Key Departures:  Shelby Miller, Andrelton Simmons, Cameron Maybin, Christian Bethancourt
Key Additions:  Kelly Johnson, Alexi Ogando, Bud Norris, Emilo Bonifacio, Erick Aybar

Handicapper’s Take: "Year one of the Braves’ rebuilding process produced a 67-95 record which in betting terms translated into -16.4 units -- the seventh worst team in the league to back. Among Atlanta’s shortcomings was an offense that finished last in MLB in OPS, SLG, HRs, RBI and runs scored. The bullpen had the second worst ERA at 4.69 and only converted 62.8% of save opportunities. Starting pitching was not exempt either as that group ranked 26th in Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part II

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part I of this article last week, I took a basic look at the profile of the past 16 NCAA champions.  From that profile, I was able to make a short list of potential champs in 2016, consisting of the following 16 teams:  Miami, North Carolina, Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Villanova, Xavier, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State, Purdue, Oregon, Utah, Arizona and Texas A&M.

The next step in the elimination process is to look at the team’s records away from home. The NCAA championship is not won on a team’s home floor.  Even with a favorable location one weekend, a team is still going to have to win four neutral site games in order to cut down the nets in Houston on April 4th.  And the best predictive evidence that I’ve seen for future success in neutral or hostile environments is previous success is neutral or hostile environments.  

In most years, we’ll find a sub .500 road Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors

Miami at Toronto -11 O/U 186
Recommendation: Toronto


The Miami Heat are in a world of hurt right now, a bet-against team in any reasonable price range.  My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against Miami twice already this week, two blowout losses where they trailed from the opening tip.  And frankly, there’s little reason to expect a better effort as they travel to Toronto tonight.

The Heat are in the midst of a truly brutal scheduling stretch, as tough as any team will face all year.  They’re playing a stretch of 18 consecutive games with a court change, a nightmarish situation for a very banged up team that desperately needs some practice time that they’re not going to get anytime soon.

And "very banged up" doesn’t even accurately describe Eric Spoelstra’s squad right now.  ‘Decimated with injuries’ might be superior phraseology.  The Heat won’t have starting center Hassan Whiteside tonight, dealing with hip and knee injuries.  They won’t have starting guard Dwayne Wade either, out with a lingering shoulder injury.  Read more
