MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Texas Rangers at New York Yankees

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas (Hamels) -110 at New York (Sabathia) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Texas


A lack of betting market respect has been commonplace with the Texas Rangers with +30 units in the bank despite being 33 games over .500. Cole Hamels has been exceptional over his last three starts allowing just two runs in 20.2 innings of work with Texas winning all three of those games. On the season, lefties have hit only .208 off of Hamels with a miniscule OPS of .630. New York has had a tough time offensively particularly against lefties with the 27th ranked slugging percentage (.386). On the flip side, C.C. Sabathia’s magical ride of a season came to a bit of a halt in this last outing as Colorado got him for 6 runs on 7 hits in 4.1 innings and he left that game with an ankle injury. The Yankees said he is good to go for this start but I’m left to wonder if maybe that rough outing is the beginning of a tailspin for an aging arm that is north of 3,000 innings and currently sporting the best numbers we’ve seen since 2011.  Also note that Texas has mashed lefties this season with the fourth-best OPS in the league. At a near pick ‘em price, Texas Read more

MLB Handicapping: Market has adjusted to increased home run rate

06.28.2016     08:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Home runs have returned at a rate MLB hasn't seen since the Steroid Era. The league is on pace for 5,500 dingers -- the only two seasons to top that mark was in 1999 and 2000 when dudes like this mysteriously belted 35 bombs. From a betting perspective, the markets have adjusted. The league is trended over the total but at a modest 51.9%. Last season, there were 41 games lined at 6 or lower. This season, there have been only 10 at the halfway point.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early look at the NFC South

06.27.2016     09:11 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Continuing my summertime tour through the eight NFL divisions, this week, I’ll be taking an in-depth look at the four NFC South teams.  As always, teams are listed in alphabetical order within the division.

The Atlanta Falcons (lined at 7 or 7.5 wins for 2016, depending on the book) went 6-1 SU to open the season last year, but stumbled down the stretch with a 2-7 finish, finishing the season with an improved, yet still disappointing 8-8 SU record.  They were money losers (6-10 ATS, including a 2-10 slide to close out the campaign) despite their two win improvement from 2014 to 2015.  That came on the heels of a two win improvement (from four to six victories) from 2013 to 2014. 

The Falcons mainstream stats show one clear weakness from 2015, despite facing one of the easier scheduled in the NFL last year.  Their 30 giveaways ranked among the bottom five teams in the NFL at avoiding turnovers.  They finished +0.0 yards per play, (obviously) right at the league average with the #7 ranked offense and the #16 ranked defense based on yardage numbers.   Both coordinators return from last year’s Read more

SuperContest no longer 100 percent payback

06.27.2016     09:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Due to growth, the world famous NFL SuperContest will no longer offer a 100 percent payback. Instead, the Westgate will take 8 percent to cover the cost of running the contest.


“I know it’s not something that’s looked upon in a positive way, but we just can’t have a loss leader,” Kornegay said. “We’re not looking to make it profitable, but we’re trying to cover our expenses. We thought this number is fair.”

“We reviewed the contest over the offseason, and the numbers were not really flattering,” Kornegay said. “When we had 400 contestants, it wasn’t that big of a deal. But as it escalated in growth the past four or five years, the costs have really grown.”

College Football Handicapping: Penn State says offense will be much improved

06.27.2016     08:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Penn State head coach James Franklin believes his offense is poised to make big strides in 2016. It wasn't massive, but in Franklin's second season, the Nittany Lions' offense did improve. In 2014, PSU finished dead last in Big Ten play at 267.5 ypg and allowed a whopping 44 sacks. Last year, the offense jumped to seventh (369.5 ypg) though still struggled at protecting the quarterback with 39 sacks allowed. PSU's first four opponents Kent State, Pitt, Temple, and Michigan all ranked 37th or better nationally in total defense in 2015.


"All the things are in place for us to make a significant jump offensively," Franklin said. "And we knew that."

"There are so many aspects now that are falling into place that you're going to have to deal with defensively," Franklin said. "As we all know, you can be very, very
