Will sports betting change if regulated?

05.22.2015     10:27 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Detailed article courtesy of ESPN about the current climate of sports betting. With regulation comes talk about match fixing and point shaving. Some folks are hopeful that if it becomes legal in the U.S. there will be a decline (or at least not an increase) in the already rare cases of point shaving. We've discussed this multiple times in the past -- even with nationwide legalized sports betting the unregulated offshore/offscreen world will still thrive. And with that, there's the potential to fix games and not be detected. Las Vegas raves about it's ability to "police" irregular line moves. But people who attempt to fix games aren't rushing down to Stations Casino with a duffle bag full of money. They are doing so undetected at countless offscreen sportsbooks across the world so as to not cause any red flags. In the end, regulation is a good thing in that it'll provide your average bettor with access to a safe outlet to gamble. But to a lot of bettors playing at 5Dimes or with a local that provides you a credit account and an offscreen Read more

MLB Handicapping: San Diego Padres struggle with gopher ball

05.21.2015     06:14 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
One of the many perks of FanGraphs is their ability to help baseball bettors better understand when things aren't going according to plan and whether or not we should expect said things to continue. The other day it was the Minnesota Twins and their "ability" to come through in the clutch. Now we have the San Diego Padres who through 41 games can best be described as "ho-hum" as they enter tonight a game under .500. It's no secret that the offense is much improved but the defense stinks and the bullpen has arguably been the worst in baseball. But one of the biggest problems for the Pads has been keeping the ball in the ballpark. The team's HR/FB ratio is on pace for historical levels despite 22 games taking place in Petco Park and nine others in Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. According to FanGraphs, the high longball rate has cost the team roughly three wins. Now the question becomes, will it continue?

If you can believe it, the Padres have allowed more home runs than any other team in baseball. They’ve allowed two more than the Brewers,

MLB Betting News: Yankees place Ellsbury on the DL

05.20.2015     08:06 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Significant injury for the New York Yankees with Jacoby Ellsbury (knee) headed to the DL. The Yankees rank second in MLB with a .399 on-base percentage from the lead-off spot -- most of which courtesy of Ellsbury. He also leads the American League in stolen bases with 14. Brett Garnder will likely assume the lead-off role. Ellbury's absence changes the dynamic of the Yankees' lineup with Ellsbury, a lefty, batting .333 vs. right-handers. Chris Young, who is slated to replace him, shows an extremely strong split (.189 vs. righties, .368 vs. lefties).

American Pharoah a 2-1 favorite to win Belmont Stakes

05.18.2015     10:27 AM     Printer Friendly
Last weekend, American Pharoah won the Preakness Stakes setting up yet enough Triple Crown attempt three weeks from now at the Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah is currently a 2-1 favorite. Since Affirmed won the Triple Crown in 1978, there have been 13 attempts including California Chrome last year. Of the 13 failed tries, four horses finished second.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Golden State Warriors primed to win NBA title

05.18.2015     10:10 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
We’re down to the Final Four in the NBA Playoffs, but the path to a championship is crystal clear for only one team – the favorite (and favored for a reason) – Golden State.  Why do the Warriors have such a significant edge over the remaining field?  I’ve identified five reasons, breaking them down in detail in this week’s Wiseguy Report. 

The Warriors opened in the -850 range in their Western Conference Finals series against the Rockets, as big of a favorite as you’ll ever see in any third round playoff series.  The first reason to like Golden State’s chances to win the title is that their path just to reach the Finals is easier than any other team’s path based on the price alone. The Rockets are big underdogs in this series, and the Cavs are only in the -200 to -220 range against Atlanta in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Secondly, the Warriors are as healthy as any team remaining in the field.  The Cavs lost Kevin Love in the first round of the playoffs, then watched Kyrie Irving come up lame in the second round.  Atlanta lost designated LeBron-stopper Thabo Sefolosha to a season Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Oakland A's at Seattle Mariners

Oakland (Hahn) at Seattle (Happ) -125 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Seattle

Oakland's Jesse Hahn has really struggled since coming over from the National League. He's young, and has upside, but a vast majority of his 27 innings this year have been a struggle. His K-rate is 3.29 per 9 lower than last year as he claims to be "trying" to pitch to contact and increase his efficiency. I'm not buying it as Hahn hasn't gone 6 innings since his first start of the season. And with Seattle getting a second look and having the ability to put plenty of lefties in the lineup, this isn't a good matchup for Hahn. Speaking of bad matchups, JA Happ had been solid prior to facing Houston on the road last time out. The Astros have good pop from the right side and hit two home runs and plated six runs against Happ. Looks for Happ to rebound as he returns home to face an Oakland team that has struggled against left-handed pitching. The A's are 1-4 vs. lefty starters with some truly dismal splits (.214/.556). With Hahn's inability to go deep into games and Oakland's sub-par bullpen (ERA north of 5.00) we'll play the home side at the short price.

NBA Handicapping: Fluky fourth quarter dooms Atlanta Hawks in Game 1

05.05.2015     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Interesting article on Atlanta's late game collapse vs. Washington. The Hawks has a double-digit lead at half but shot 5-for-28 from the floor in the fourth quarter including 1-of-10 from three.

Since the playoffs expanded to 16 teams in 1983-84, only one other #1 seed has lost a game in the first or second round in which it led by double digits at halftime.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

Chicago (Wood) at St. Louis (Martinez) -140 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over

Off of a weekend sweep of the Pirates where all three games went extra innings, St. Louis enters tonight’s contest with a worn out bullpen. Their top five relievers have thrown three times in the past four days, closer Trevor Rosenthal has thrown three consecutive days, lefty specialists Randy Choate and Kevin Siegrist are on back-to-back days and they’ve lost setup man Jordan Walden to the 15-day DL with biceps inflammation. Reliable and un-fatigued help in the back third of tonight’s game is a major concern for St. Louis. That puts a lot on the shoulders of starting RH Carlos Martinez who has been a terrific six inning guy in three of his last four and the other saw him throw a strong seven. The hard throwing righty has posted a 1.80 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in his last four starts but his nine walks and four HR allowed leaves the door open for this Cubs lineup to score some runs. Opposite Martinez tonight is lefty Travis Wood who has had zero recent success keeping St. Louis off the scoreboard. In his last five starts against them, the Cards have averaged 4.8 Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Tigers at Minnesota Twins

Detroit (Sanchez) at Minnesota (Pelfrey) +140 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Minnesota

Minnesota's Mike Pelfrey has enjoyed some early season success with a 2.65 ERA, 61% groundball rate, and uptick in velocity through three starts. The only thing missing is the strikeouts (8 in 17 IP) but I can live with that so long as Pelfrey continues to pound the lower half of the strike zone. Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez will be making his fifth start as he owns a 5.96 ERA. His fastball velocity is a tad lower than last year and his HR per 9 is at a career high of just short of two thanks to an extremely high fly ball rate. The Twins should benefit from seeing him for the second time this year. If the Tigers can get to Sanchez, the Detroit bullpen has a combined ERA of 4.47, which ranks 26th in MLB. Also note that their top relief arm, Joakim Soria, has tossed in three straight days and is unlikely to be available this evening. Price is right for a play on the home underdog.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs update

04.27.2015     08:26 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
We’re midway through the opening round of the NBA Playoffs and the Eastern Conference still looks noticeably weaker than the West, just as it was during the regular season.  The Cavs weren’t really tested in their sweep over Boston, facing a Celtics team that probably would have struggled to won 30 games against a Western Conference slate.  Atlanta is 0-3 ATS in its first three games against the Nets, looking nothing like the team that dominated the East for extended stretches before the All-Star break.  The Bulls blew a chance to close out their series with the Bucks with a sweep, unable to seal the deal in the closing minutes of Game 4. And while Washington has looked every bit as good as any of the other Eastern Conference contenders, there’s still a lingering stink from the Wizards second half struggles and Randy Wittman’s consistent failures at getting his teams to overachieve.

So which of those four teams (assuming the Hawks don’t blow the series against the Nets) is truly elite, capable of winning at least two more series to make it to the Finals?  Cleveland is the prohibitive favorite to come out of the East, Read more
