MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates

Chicago (Hendricks) -125 at Pittsburgh (Cole) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over

After a slow start to the season, the Chicago Cubs are the hottest hitting team in MLB. The offense has pounded out 53 runs and hit 12 home runs over its last six games. The opposing starters during that span however were all below average. The Cubs will see a more premium arm tonight in Gerrit Cole who two weeks ago tossed 6 innings and allowed only two runs against this lineup. The Cubs though made Cole work as he threw 114 pitches (19 per inning) and given their current form with the quick second look, I project they’ll be more productive at the plate this time around. Chicago’s Kyle Hendricks was pitted against Cole in that start and labored through five innings. Hendricks allowed three runs in five innings with only three strikeouts and two walks. Even more alarming is that was arguably his best outing of the season as lack of command and significantly diminished velocity have resulted in seven walks and four home runs in three starts. The previous matchup ended in a 4-2 Pittsburgh win with both bullpens combining for a near-flawless 7 innings Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Marlins at Seattle Mariners

Miami (Koehler) +133 at Seattle (Miranda) O/U 8
Recommendation: Miami

Long distance road trip for the Marlins starts tonight as they play the first of a six game west coast stint in Seattle. Confidence breeding three consecutive weekend wins over division rival New York figures to help Miami begin this away test. Seattle enjoyed the same weekend productivity as the came out of an early season slump to sweep the Texas Rangers and climb out of the AL West cellar. The sweep really gave a boost to their struggling offense as the posted a slash line of .305/.421/.505/.926.

Tonight’s matchup pits the Marlins explosive RH bats against Mariners 28-year-old lefty Ariel Miranda. Miranda has opened the season with a pair of nondescript outing versus the potent Houston Astros lineup producing game WHIP’s of 1.60 and 1.59 and not making through the sixth inning in either. Anticipate the same types of problems here and his 15 HRs allowed in just 68.2 career innings are cause for concern as well. His mound opponent RH Tom Koehler is off to his predictably consistent start. For the most part over 30 season starts you expect a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees

Tampa Bay (Andriese) at New York (Severino) -140 O/U 8
Recommendation: Over

Tampa Bay’s Matt Andriese is the weakest link in an otherwise sturdy Tampa Bay Rays starting rotation. He is the fifth starter and pitched like one in his first outing of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays. Andriese was lit up for five runs on seven hits and lasted only four innings. His hard contact percentage was an alarming 68.8% and keep in mind that was against a Blue Jays lineup that hasn’t hit at all thus far. Tonight, he’ll face a red hot Yankees lineup that has pounded out 4+ runs in five consecutive games and 32 runs during that span. Andriese has struggled with the Yankees during this career, allowing 11 runs in 13.1 innings. The Rays bullpen is also taxed after a relatively short starting stint by Blake Snell yesterday. On the flip side, Luis Severino is still trying to reclaim his 2015 form in which he posted a rock solid 2.89 ERA in 11 starts as a rookie. Last season was a disastrous one for him and his first start this season wasn’t much better as he allowed four runs on six hits and lasted just five innings vs. Read more

NHL Handicapper Stanley Cup Playoffs Free Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues vs. Minnesota Wild

St. Louis Blues vs. Minnesota Wild
Series Recommendation: St. Louis +130

The Minnesota Wild battle the St. Louis Blues in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs starting Wednesday. These two clubs hooked up back in 2014 with the Wild taking the series in six games under head coach Mike Yeo who is now the bench boss for the Blues.

St. Louis knew they would have to make some changes after losing in the Western Conference finals last May. They brought in Yeo to be the associate coach-in-waiting as longtime leader Ken Hitchcock was planning to call it a career after this season. When the Blues lost 7 of 11 games heading into the All-Star break and suffered a bad loss in their first contest back, management went ahead and fired Hitchcock and promoted Yeo on February 1. This move paid off quickly as St. Louis won 22 of its final 32 games to reach 99 points and clinch a sixth consecutive playoff berth. Yeo's mantra has always been defense and that was a weakness for the Blues prior to his promotion. Since Yeo took over, St. Louis has improved in all areas of backchecking and goaltending with a league-best 1.87 GAA, .936 save Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Wild at Nashville Predators

Minnesota at Nashville -125 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Nashville

Two Central Division foes face-off for a Saturday matinee as the Nashville Predators host the Minnesota Wild in a potential first round playoff preview. The Wild had a five-point lead in the Central Division back on February 28 before losing 12 of their last 16 games. It dropped them down to second place as they now trail Chicago by (7-8-9) points entering this contest. A facial injury to winger Zach Parise will sideline him for this game. Parise has scored 17 goals and 20 assists on the year and is one of the main leaders for this Minnesota club. Nashville is looking to get out of the Wild Card range and grab the third spot in the Central which would pit them in a match-up against the Wild. The Preds have won seven of their last 10 games and have earned at least a point in six of the last 10 meetings versus Minnesota. Nashville has played division opponents tough this year, with a 12-7 record as a favorite vs. Central foes. Forward Filip Forsberg leads the club with 30 goals; his third consecutive season with 25 or more goals with the Predators. This game is big for Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets at Toronto Raptors

Charlotte at Toronto -6 O/U 202
Recommendation: Toronto

My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against the Hornets last night. There’s little reason to think that Charlotte will be significantly more competitive as they step up in class against a focused foe on the second night of back-to-backs tonight. Let me start with an excerpt from yesterday’s write-up, with the numbers edited slightly to reflect current realities:

“Charlotte was a playoff team last year, finishing with 48 wins and the #6 seed. The markets still remember and respect that team, in some ways overshadowing the 33-41 squad from this year in the betting world. The Hornets did their best to blow a 25 point second half lead against a Suns team playing on the second night of back-2-backs in their last game, on the heels of a defensive no-show against the Cavs in their previous contest. And the betting markets are offering us legitimate value with wiseguy steam showing for Charlotte in early betting action today.”

There’s been steam on Charlotte again today, pushing the line down to -5.5 as I write this Read more

MLB Handicapping: Colorado's Bud Black tries to change pitching culture

03.29.2017     09:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Colorado Rockies manager Bud Black has emphasized two changes for his pitching staff this season: more curveballs and less walks. A common theory is that it's tough to throw and effective curveball in the dry air at elevation. Black seems to think, if you can throw a good one at sea level you can do the same at Coors Field. Last year's staff threw the second lowest percentage of curveballs in MLB. As for the walks, Colorado was tied for the fifth-most in the league at 547.


"It's been one of the things we really bought into," Colorado left-hander Harrison Musgrave said. "You can't defend a walk, as elementary as it sounds. But it's true. With a defense like ours behind you, let batters put the ball in play."

"My philosophy is this," first-year Rockies manager Bud Black said Thursday. "If you have a good curveball — and Chatwood, for instance, has a good curveball, he imparts great spin on the ball — it can be effective in Colorado. I don't

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Rhode Island Rams vs. Oregon Ducks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rhode Island +5 vs. Oregon O/U 141
Recommendation: Rhode Island


When we talk about impact injuries on the defensive end of the court, the Ducks loss of shot blocking center Chris Boucher really stands out. Boucher was not a great offensive player, but he was a low post difference maker on defense. In their first game without him in the lineup, the Ducks struggled to get stops, allowing 83 points on 58% shooting in the PAC-12 title game against Arizona. In their second game without Boucher, they allowed 77 points on 44% shooting to Iona.

The pointspread outcome in that game came down to the final possession despite the fact that the Ducks shot 56% from the floor and won the rebounding battle by 14. That’s certainly not a good sign moving forward, and Oregon is not a ‘value laden’ team at this stage of the campaign.

Rhode Island is on the other end of the ‘value’ equation. The Rams did not play their best basketball, struggling SU and ATS early and often in November, December and into January. Key contributors like senior low post stud Hassan Martin, junior point guard Jarvis Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Marquette Golden Eagles vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

Marquette vs. South Carolina -1 O/U 142
Recommendation: Under


South Carolina doesn’t play at a snail’s pace, but they are truly an elite defensive team and just as truly an ugly offensive team.  So while this total makes sense given the Gamecocks pace of play, it looks a good notch or two too high for this bettor due to the way the play, not their pace of play.  To put this total in perspective, the Gamecocks last game in the SEC tourney against Alabama, was totaled at 122.5 and it stayed under with room to spare.

When we look at the Gamecocks results from non-conference play against opponents who were not familiar with their intense, physical style, we saw totals that were routinely priced waaaaaaay too high.  They were lined at 156.5 against Monmouth, a game that finished with 120 points in regulation.  Their game against Michigan was totaled at 136.5, finishing with 107 points.  Against Syracuse on a neutral floor at Madison Square Garden, it was another game that stayed 20+ points Under.  Similar class games Seton Hall on a neutral floor, Clemson and Memphis were all Read more
