Will sportsbooks adjust their betting lines for local teams?

06.21.2018     09:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Now that sports betting is starting to spread to states outside of Las Vegas, questions have risen about how oddsmakers will handle lopsided action? For years the betting marketplace (offshore and Las Vegas) has followed a pretty simple formula: a few lesser sportsbooks will offer lower limit openers, CRIS eventually posts its openers, and the market quickly falls in line. On a typical NFL Sunday, a bettor with multiple outs might be able to find -2.5 or +3 on the same game. But by and large, bookmakers are reluctant to offer wild "off market" numbers even when faced with "liability." The concept of "balanced action" is fine in theory but sportsbooks are routinely cheering for one side knowing that in the long term, they'll come out ahead. More than likely you'll see some of these new East Coast sportsbook "shade" their lines when local team action gets too heavy. If the Eagles are -3 offshore, it's reasonable to think a Pennsylvania sportsbook may at some point move to -3.5 even money close to kickoff knowing that it won't take long Read more








MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

Arizona (Godley) at New York (deGrom) -155 O/U 7
Recommendation: Over

After a promising start, the New York Mets are nearing full-on circus mode with current runs of 6-14 and 3-7. Injuries, trades, drama in the club house...the list goes on. Even one of the few bright spots, tonight's starter, Jacob deGrom, has issues. After a stint on the DL, deGrom returned on Sunday and lasted only an inning due to a high pitch count. He noted following the outing that his stuff and release point just wasn't there. After the arm injury scare, the Mets are obviously taking no chances meaning deGrom will continue to be on a short leash and one of the league's worst bullpens will continue to see plenty of action. Speaking of promising starts, Arizona's Zack Godley started the season with back-to-back gems but has since been repeatedly smacked around. Over his last six starts, Godley has issued 18 walks and sports a 5.57 ERA and .300 BAA. His main issue has been the ineffectiveness of his curveball which is his lone plus pitch. Last season, batters hit .162 BA/.236 SLG against his breaker. Of pitchers who threw 150+ innings last year, only Corey Read more

NBA Playoff Betting News: Betting markets expect Cleveland Cavaliers to come out strong for Game 3

05.17.2018     08:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Well, this is interesting. Down 2-0, the Cleveland Cavaliers opened as -5.5 home favorites for Saturday's Game 3. After taking early money, they are now -6.5 both offshore and in Las Vegas. But what's interesting is the first half line. The Cavs are laying -6.5 for the game and as high as -6 (CRIS) for the first half. To compare, Golden State is -7 for the game and -4 in the first half for Sunday's Game 3.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at Texas Rangers

05.04.2018     10:27 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston (Porcello) at Texas (Colon) +165 O/U 9
Recommendation: Texas

The betting markets want no part of Bartolo Colon against the potent Red Sox lineup. At 44 years old, without much of a strikeout pitch, Colon is routinely disregarded by the wiseguys. Due to his flyball ways and his lack of strikeouts, Colon’s FIP is more than a full run higher than his ERA. No surprise, then, that he’s been an underdog in every previous start this season.

Colon is coming off a quality start at Toronto, cashing as a +155 underdog. He had a perfect game through seven innings against the potent Astros lineup. The Rangers lineup behind him is clicking right now, coming off an 11 run outburst last night; pounding out 47 runs while going 5-3 in their last eight ballgames. It’s surely worth noting that four of those five wins came at an underdog price of +140 or higher, and the fifth came in pick ‘em priced game – right now, this Texas team is showing real signs of profitability. And it’s surely worth noting that the Rangers bullpen is rested and ready tonight after a rough series in Cleveland to open the Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Chatwood) -105 at Cleveland (Tomlin) O/U 9
Recommendation: Chicago

Tough to expect much sharpness out of Cleveland's Josh Tomlin who hasn't started a game since April 10. Tomlin was forced into action in the 15th inning of last Wednesday's game against Minnesota. Overall, Tomlin has thrown only 1 inning (37 pitches) over the last 12 days. That doesn't bode well against a surging Chicago Cubs offense. After netting just one run in back-to-back games two weeks ago, the Cubs have pounded out 52 runs over their last six games. Tyler Chatwood's stuff thus far has been almost too good with 18 strikeouts and 14 walks in 15.2 innings. This isn't however a bad matchup as Cleveland currently ranks near the bottom of MLB in offensive production including the third lowest walk rate (7.7%). Chicago should also have the bullpen edge having had yesterday off. Note than Cleveland relievers Cody Allen and Andrew Miller, who have yet to allow an earned run this season, threw on both Sunday and Monday and are unlikely to be available tonight. Eliminate the duo and the Tribe's pen ERA jumps a run and a half. At the nearl pick 'em price we'll Read more

MLB Handicapping: Chase Field humidor having a big impact on offense

04.23.2018     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like the humidor at Chase Field is living up to its billing as a run suppressor. Through 11 games, totals are 3-8-1 O/U with scoring down nearly three runs per game. Also aiding in the suppression has been Patrick Corbin's 28 innings and only four earned runs allowed. But keep an eye out for the inevitable tipping point which may have already seen; Sunday's total vs. San Diego opened 8 and closed 7 with a 4-2 final.

Chase Field 2017
Over/Under: 42-34-7
Average Total: 9.4
Runs Per Game: 9.95
Home Runs Per Game: 2.65

Chase Field 2018
Over/Under: 3-8-1
Average Total: 8.2
Runs Per Game: 7.17
Home Runs Per Game: 1.92

NBA Handicapping: Playoff berths and seeds still up for grabs

04.09.2018     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot going on the final three days of the NBA regular season. The Eastern Conference “eight” have been determined though seeding, specifically six through eight, has yet to be determined. The Western Conference is a total cluster: five teams who have yet to clinch are vying for the final four seeds. Here’s a quick look at tonight’s matchups.

Toronto -4 at Detroit - The Raptors have the top seed in the Eastern Conference locked up. The Pistons, who have quietly covered 9 of 11, have been eliminated from playoff contention. It showed in Sunday's loss to Memphis; the Grizzlies hung 30 or more in all four quarters en route to a 130-117 win.

Cleveland -12.5 at New York - The Cavs trail the 76ers by a game but if they beat the Knicks, they would win the Central and thus earn the third seed.

Chicago at Brooklyn -7.5 - Playing for exercise.

Oklahoma City -3.5 at Miami - The Heat are in but could finished sixth, seventh, or eighth. The Thunder need to win one of their last two games to clinch a berth. Note that the game opened a pick 'em.

Memphis at Minnesota -15.5 - The Timberwolves are in the middle of the messy Read more

NBA Gambling: Phoenix Suns in the driver's sear to win Tank-a-Thon

04.02.2018     11:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The race for last is winding down with a little over a week to go in the NBA regular season. The Phoenix Suns, on the strength of a 1-18 SU record since the All-Star break, have a 2.5-game "lead" over the Memphis Grizzlies who for whatever reason decided to win two of their last four. Dallas and Sacramento actually have winning spread records while Chicago is 5-1 SU/ATS against fellow tankers.

Team (overall record) SU/ATS records post-All-Star Break; SU/ATS vs. fellow tankers
1. Phoenix (19-59) 1-18/8-11; 1-2, 3-0
2. Memphis (21-56) 3-18/8-13; 0-5/0-5
3. Atlanta (22-55) 4-14/5-12-1; 2-2, 1-3
4. Orlando (22-54) 4-15/7-12; 2-4, 1-5
5. Dallas (23-54) 5-14/10-9; 3-1, 3-1
6. Sacramento (25-53) 7-14/12-9; 3-1, 3-1
7. Chicago (26-51) 6-14/10-10; 5-1/5-1
8. New York (27-50) 4-14/8-10; 2-2/2-2

Overall: 34-121 SU, 68-86-1 ATS as of 4/2
