MLB Handicapping: Will bringing in the fences at Citi Field help the Mets?

03.19.2012     02:05 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Article about the potential impact of the New York Mets deciding to shorten the fences at Citi Field.

"I don't think we ever looked at the field and it intimidated us. But obviously it's frustrating at times when you hit a ball good and you don't see the results that you want to see."

NBA Betting Update: Minnesota Timberwolves in danger of falling out of playoff race

03.19.2012     02:00 PM     Printer Friendly

That brutal stretch of schedule for Minnesota we discussed a few weeks back seems to be getting the best of this team. The Timberwolves have dropped three straight, the last of which an embarrassing 115-99 loss at Sacramento. During the loss, Kevin Love vented his frustration during a timeout. Things are about to get even tougher with tonight's game at Golden State marking the team's fifth straight on the road. The T-wolves then play at Oklahoma City and San Antonio, return home to face Denver, back on the road for back-to-backs, at home vs. Boston, and then two more on the highway against Portland and Sacramento. Minnesota won't play back-to-back home games until April 11-12 – against the Clippers and Thunder.

Online gambling may be key to keeping Atlantic City casinos in business

03.19.2012     12:21 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
According to the numbers, online gambling could bring in $475 million in tax revenue to New Jersey. Legalized sports betting would add an estimated $120 million.

“If we don’t get sports betting and Internet gaming, two to four casinos in Atlantic City will close within two years,” Lesniak predicted. “It’s a dying industry, and we can help them.”

“Trying to stop people from gambling on sports is like Prohibition,” said state Sen. Raymond Lesniak, D-Union, who also backs Internet poker and online lottery measures. “How did that work out? We are a society that allows gambling, and we’re not going back.”

NBA Betting Alert: Chicago's Derrick Rose unlikely to suit up against Orlando

03.19.2012     12:00 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Chicago at Orlando -2 O/U 183.5

Chicago's Derrick Rose (groin) is a tough customer but it doesn't appear that he'll play tonight in Orlando. The Bulls are 9-4 SU, 7-6 ATS and 6-6-1 O/U without Rose this season.

"I really don't know," Rose said when asked when he might return. "They haven't gave me a time. They say with an injury like this you really don't know how long it's going to take.

"Where I thought I was going to be back sooner, missing big games that I would hate to miss like the one tonight, but I got to worry about my health."

Denver signs Manning; Super Bowl XLVII odds drop to 10-1

03.19.2012     11:51 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
You know the guy with the Tim Tebow jersey who thought it would be cool to take a shot with Denver at 50-1 to win next year's Super Bowl? If you happen to be friends with THAT guy, check your phone because you probably just received a text message that reads something like this: "MANNING!!!! 50-1!!! Are you kidding me? ALL THE WAY BABY!"

We won't bore you with details, but according to LVH Sportsbook, Denver's odds dropped from 50-1 to 10-1 (25-1 to 5-1 to win the AFC).

NCAA Tournament Gambling: A handicapper's look at the Sweet Sixteen

03.19.2012     07:55 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
The first weekend of the Madness is in the history books and only 16 teams remain standing in the NCAA Tournament. Let’s take a look at those 16 teams and assess their chances for tournament success as the field gets reduced to the Final Four this coming weekend. Teams are listed in rotation order.

Wisconsin is a mirror image of their head coach Bo Ryan: tough as nails. There’s no questioning the Badgers execution or heart, but this is not one of the more talented teams that Ryan has coached during his tenure in Madison. The Badgers are an offensively challenged ballclub that relies heavily on their three-point shooting. Four of their top five scorers average at least one made three pointer per game. Their leading rebounder, Ryan Evans, is 6-6, 210; not a team with a dominant inside presence. We’ve seen the Badgers end up on the wrong side of nearly every “step up in class” game away from home this year, with two exceptions: their win at Ohio State and their win over Vandy to reach the Sweet Sixteen.

NIT Betting Free Pick: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Miami Hurricanes

03.19.2012     07:18 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Minnesota at Miami-FL
Recommendation: First half over 63.5

I expect a lot more intensity and effort from Miami after its lethargic performance against Valpo in the first round of the NIT. From watching the game, it was clear both teams had no interest in being there as Miami finally woke up in the second half with 42 points. Minnesota should do a better job at grabbing Miami's attention. The Golden Gophers played very inspired ball in their first round win over La Salle. They came out looking to push the pace, took a first half lead and slowed down the pace in the second half en route to a 70-61 win. With the exception of the win over Valpo, Miami has shown the ability to score and play at a faster pace in Coral Gables. In eight ACC home games, the Hurricanes scored 77, 78, 74, 64, 65, 69, 73 and 76 points. Both squads are solid defensively, but like a lot of these secondary tournaments, the first halves tend to play out loose as they feel one another out. Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting News: North Carolina point guard breaks wrist

03.19.2012     06:56 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Article on North Carolina's plans following point guard Kendall Marshall's broken wrist. There is a chance Marshall will try to play with some sort of soft cast in Friday's regional semifinal against Ohio. Beyond Marshall, UNC doesn't have a lot of experience at the point guard position.

“This is big,’’ senior forward Tyler Zeller said. “Kendall’s always been the leader of the team, he’s always been somebody who plays 35-plus minutes per game. … He’s the best point guard in the nation. He makes this team go.”

NBA Handicapping: Schedule for red hot Phoenix Suns about to turn ugly

03.19.2012     06:41 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
It looked as if the Phoenix Suns would be left for dead after a 12-19 start to the season. But thanks to a home friendly schedule, they've ripped off 11 of 14 (11-3 ATS) and currently trail Houston by half a game for the eighth spot in the Western Conference. The run included only two road games but that is about to change starting Tuesday as Phoenix will play 12 of its next 15 on the highway.

NCAA Tournament Free Pick: Saint Louis Billikens vs. Michigan State Spartans

03.18.2012     10:51 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Saint Louis +7.5 vs. Michigan State O/U 124
Recommendation: Saint Louis

Michigan State is top-tier team, but I believe they are in for a tough one today. Their superior defense can be matched by a Saint Louis stop unit that requires patience, precision passing and careful ball handling. Lower-scoring game expected with Michigan State allowing just 59 ppg on 38% shooting and 29% from the three-point line.  The Billikens allowed just 59 ppg in A-10 play and after watching our outright underdog winner on SLU over red-hot Memphis you have to be impressed with their ability to dictate tempo and play defense. Saint Louis holds opponents to a low offensive rebounding rate (28%) which is a great match-up against the Spartans’ strength on the boards. Point guard Kwamain Mitchell gives them a premier floor leader, ball handler and passer who can score. Add in some solid outside shooters to a tough team and the Billikens are capable of taking this one to the wire.

Fairway Jay is a recognized leader and one of the sports industries insightful point spread prognosticators. His top-rated Big Drive CBB selections hit over 55% this season on Read more

CIT Free Betting Pick: Weber State Wildcats at Loyola Marymount Lions

03.18.2012     06:43 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Weber State at Loyola Marymount -3.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Over

Outside Big Sky play, Weber State was repeatedly exposed on the defensive end of the floor. Against St. Mary's, BYU and Cal, the Wildcats surrendered 87, 94 and 77 points. They also struggled on the road, allowed nearly 73 ppg. The end result was a season long average of 105.7 points per possessions allowed which is very similar to that of Cal State Fullerton (108.2) – a team Loyola Marymount hung 88 on in the first round of the CIT. LMU played its fair share of moderately tempo games but showed a willingness to run against San Francisco and BYU – two teams very similar to Weber State. Certainly a game both side would like to win, but I once against don't expect much intensity on the defensive end which will get us over the 145 mark.
