Gambling Update: Phil Mickelson is the friend you wish you had

04.07.2017     08:48 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Phil Mickelson's level of coolness continues to grow...


“Hey, it’s Phil,” he says. “Hey, Sunday morning, we’re on. Yeah, it’s you and I, we’re partnered against Charley and one of his partners. Where would you like to play? We could play Rancho Santa Fe if you want, or we could play Coronado early and even some place else after if we play early enough. But you and I are partnered, wanted to see if you wanted to play Coronado and take these guys for some serious cash. So let me know. Talk to you later. Bye.”

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

NCAA Tournament Betting News: Sportsbook has huge liability with Michigan Wolverines

There's no two better ways for a sportsbook to publicize itself than to brag about taking big bets and suffering big losses. Here we have the former as Las Vegas' Golden Nugget is on the hook for $1 million should the Michigan Wolverines win the NCAA National Championship.

MLB Handicapping: Atlanta Braves set to open SunTrust Park

Bettors need to familiarize themselves with Atlanta's new SunTrust Park. Compared to Turner Field which was generally considered "neutral", the power alley fences are shorter though a 16-foot fence covers all of right field. Here's an amateur take on how the wind could impact the park throughout the season.

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: Princeton Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Princeton vs. Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Notre Dame


Pointspreads tend to be very accurate by this time of the year.  Both the oddsmakers and the broader betting markets have a full seasons worth of data to punch into their computers.  The end result is that the numbers -- both sides and total -- are consistently right where they are supposed to be.

So when bettors are looking for an edge at this time of the year, they’re going to have to dig for information that is not factored into the numbers.  Given the full season results and stats for Princeton and Notre Dame, this pointspread is as accurate as it gets.  But when it comes to key tidbits of info?  Well, that’s where we can find an edge.

Princeton was forced to leave New Jersey on Monday due to the East Coast blizzard; more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.  That wouldn’t necessarily be a big deal, except for the fact that the Tigers played in the first ever Ivy League Championship Game on Sunday, creating a mad scramble for a team from a conference that has never had a conference tourney Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks at Montreal Canadiens

Chicago +105 at Montreal O/U 5
Recommendation: Chicago


Two Original Six clubs clash in "La Metropole" tonight, as the Chicago Blackhawks open a three-game north-of-the-border road trip against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs return home off of a four-game road trek of their own where they went 3-1 including a recent 4-1 victory over Edmonton. Montreal has won eight of its last 10 games overall and have recaptured the top spot in the Atlantic Division race with only 12 games remaining after tonight. The Canadiens however will have their hands full with Chicago, who is not only playing very sharp hockey as of late (13-3 streak, 8-1 on the road) but the Hawks have had the Habs' number over the years with six straight wins and a 8-0-2 mark in their last 10 meetings. Superstar Patrick Kane notched his 30th goal on Sunday in a big 4-2 victory over division rival Minnesota and goaltender Corey Crawford was sensational between the pipes, blocking 42 shots on net. The Montreal native has played very well against the club he watched as a kid, with a lifetime 6-0-2 mark versus the Habs. With the Blackhawks' solid 7-1 run as an Read more

Another group attempts to fight federal ban on sports betting

03.02.2017     09:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Another organization pushing to repeal the archaic Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992.


“Legalizing sports betting would produce substantial social and political benefits by exposing billions of dollars in economic activity to the sunshine of legitimacy,” said Minton, a Competitive Enterprise Institute fellow specializing in consumer policy.

“Decriminalization would renew respect for the law by individuals who see gambling on sports as a valid form of entertainment for adults. Allowing bookies and authorities to work together to stop match fixing — which is in both of their interests — would bolster the integrity of sports,” she said.









College Basketball Handicapping: Bettors need to know mid-major conference tournaments

Many mid-major college basketball conferences will tip off their respective tournaments next week. Understanding the format of these tournaments is imperative to betting the final week of the regular season. You optimally want to find teams with something to play for in terms of seeding, especially if the opponent has little to nothing to play for. I will examine several leagues and how the race for seeding currently stands.

Colonial  - The CAA Tournament will be held in Charleston, South Carolina. The top six seeds will go straight through to the quarterfinals. Prior to that, there will be two first round games pitting the no. 7 vs. no. 10 and no. 8 vs. no. 9 with the two winners advancing.  UNC Wilmington, Charleston, Towson, Elon, William & Mary and Northeastern are currently make up the top six. Northeastern has a slim one-game lead over James Madison and a two-game lead over Hofstra and Delaware. Northeastern has a tough final two games as they face Elon and UNC Wilmington on the road while James Madison plays the more manageable slate hosting Drexel and Hofstra. The race for the final first round bye is very much alive. Read more

NBA Betting News: Miami Heat vow to fix leaky defense

02.15.2017     09:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Throughout Miami's incredible 13-game winning streak, the offense averaged a well-oiled 109.3 ppg. The Heat though enter tonight having dropped two straight and while the offense continued to roll (109 and 107 points), the team's defense regressed. Philadelphia and Orlando hung 117 and 116 respectively and the challenge stiffens tonight as the Heat head to Houston.

 

“The last three games we’ve played against opponents who like to run,” guard Goran Dragic said. “…First of all, we need to get back on defense. We allowed too many points in transition. We just need to communicate. We’ve already proven that we can play good defense.”
