Sportsbook hung 1000-1 odds on wrong Watson for Masters

04.11.2012     11:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This one had absolutely no chance of not happening. British sportsbook Coral got Bubba Watson confused with Tom Watson – we assume it was a miscalculation based on the name not visual characteristics. So Bubba's odds to win the Master were offered at 1000-1 as oppose to the accurate market price of 40-1. Naturally some dude chap named Lee Beardmore (WOW that sounds really British!) thought he was getting a great deal, bet Bubba at 1000-1, and is furious the sportsbook won't honor it. Sure he’s got a point, but every bettor should know that 99 times out of 100, the books win these type of arguments. Heck, this type of thing happens twice a week at Pinnacle.


"I was really excited when I went to collect my winnings because I've never won that much before. But when I found it was a mistake I didn't know what to think.

"I was gutted and angry because I don't know why I should be punished for someone else's mistake.

"I put good money on a bet which I Read more








Bettors cash in on Bubba Watson at Masters

04.11.2012     11:14 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The 2012 Masters took in the most betting action in golf history. Bubba Watson, who opened at 40-1 to win and has never taken a golf lesson, provided his betting backers with a big pay day. Bubba closed at 30-1 to win at the LVH (Hilton) in Las Vegas, but the sportsbooks still made plenty of money and ‘green’ on the tournament. Tiger Woods recent win at Bay Hill and his return to Augusta sparked big betting action and profit for the sportsbooks with Tigers finishing T40th; the worst Masters Tournament of Woods’ professional career. 

I was at LVH last week and bet Bubba and others to win and had a few large tickets on Bubba’s finishing position. I also posted this top recommendation in the Sportsmemo posting forum and sent out on Twitter (@FairwayJay). LVH opened Watson’s O/U finishing position at 27.5 and was bet down sharply to 23.5 before closing at 24.5. LVH takes $1,000 max bets on O/U wagers, and I corresponded and talked with LVH golf oddsmaker Jeff Sherman about the tournament. Sherman noted Read more

MLB Gambling Preview: First team to two wins? Halladay squares off against Johnson

04.11.2012     07:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami (Johnson) at Philadelphia (Halladay) -135 O/U 6

Runs could be at a premium tonight in Philadelphia with Miami's Josh Johnson taking on Roy Halladay. The duo has produced some memorable matchups with only six runs combined in the three meetings. Johnson has a strong history at Citizens Bank Park with a 4-0 record and 1.87 ERA. He struggled in the season opener, allowing 10 hits in six innings in a 4-1 loss to St. Louis. Johnson however claims that he feels fine following last year's shoulder injury.


"Feeling really good," he said Monday, noting that his pitching hasn't yet reflected it. "It was kind of here and there in the spring — the last [spring training] start it was a lot better except for one pitch. Last start [on Opening Day] I was pretty confident going in that it would continue, but Read more

MLB Handicapping: Chicago's Samardzija shows promise in first start

04.11.2012     07:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Almost as shocking as Barry Zito's complete game shutout against the Rockies Monday was the gem Chicago received from the often times erratic Jeff Samardzija. Thrust into the role of a starter, Samardzija allowed just one earned run and struck out eight in a 4-3 win over Washington. But perhaps even more impressive is that he didn't walk a batter (some thanks should probably go out to umpire Doug Eddings). So was Samardzija's performance a one-time deal or a sign of potential? According to FanGraphs, a few stats indicate that he could be a "capable starter" which for the Cubs (1-4) is pretty good news. Samardzija is scheduled to throw Friday at St. Louis.

NBA Betting Trend Update: Kobe out, Lakers continue struggles against the spread

04.11.2012     06:32 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Without or without Kobe Bryant, Los Angeles just can’t seem to cover a pointspread these days with its current run now at 2-13 ATS. Bryant is listed as "out" for tonight's game at San Antonio. While the Lakers have been a pointspread disaster (22-35-1 YTD), the Spurs have somehow produced the best ATS record in the league at 34-19-2. Amazing we you consider head coach Gregg Popovich’s willingness to wave the white flag in certain spots so his veterans can rest.

#1 Vancouver vs. #8 Los Angeles
Season Series:  Tied 2-2 (Canucks 1-0, Kings 3-2 (SO), Kings 4-1, Canucks 3-2)
Pinnacle Series Price: Vancouver -224/Los Angeles +200

What to expect: Goals will be at a premium in this series and there is no doubt both goalies will feel the pressure of the one goal game.  Each meeting between these two teams had five goals or less. Vancouver looks to make its way back to the Stanley Cup Finals on the back of the Sedin brothers up front and Roberto Luongo in net.  With Daniel Sedin getting back on the ice after his concussion he becomes the deciding factor in this series and should give the Canucks enough offense to advance (if in fact he is healthy enough to play).  The Kings have made some big moves in order to bolster a below average offense.  Will the additions of Jeff Carter (assuming he plays) and Mike Richards be enough for Los Angeles to upset the Canucks?  The Canucks have had the luxury of playing in the Northwest Division all season and definitely had the easier of two roads to the playoffs.  The Kings have grinded on their schedule for over two months now doing enough Read more

MLB Handicapping: Velocity down for some big-name starting pitchers

04.10.2012     01:04 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article from ESPN on some of the velocity issues with starting pitchers. It is not uncommon to see a few "dead arms" this early in the season with spring training not always allowing enough time to build strength and stamina. And fastball velocity league wide tends to pick up as the season progresses. Still, dips in velocity need to be addressed on a case-by-case basis. Felix Hernandez's lack of fastball is perhaps a concern though he did shed some weight during the offseason. Clayton Kershaw was sick in his first start so he gets a pass. Rumors are circulating that Tim Lincecum's lack of gas is a sign that something may not be right. Josh Beckett also makes the list after a disastrous fastball-less first outing.

LVH Sportsbook Director Jay Kornegay said that last week's Masters was most wagered on golf tournament in history. Winner, Bubba Watson, went off at 40-1 prior to the event.


"This was the biggest golf tournament, wagering wise, in the history of golf betting," said LVH Race and Sportsbook Vice President Jay Kornegay.

"It all surrounded Tiger," Kornegay said. "With all the bets that came in on Tiger, this definitely made it the biggest wagering tournament in history."

MLB Handicapping Notes: Feliz makes first-ever start, has owned Seattle

04.10.2012     11:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seattle (Beavan) at Texas (Feliz) -225 O/U 9.5

Texas' Neftali Feliz will make his first MLB start tonight against Seattle. It is an opponent that Feliz has had a little bit of success against. In 17 appearances, tallying 16 innings, the Mariners have yet to record a hit against the Rangers right hander. Yep, in 48 at-bats, Seattle is hitless (current roster 0-for-22) and has only reached base five times. Perhaps a good sign that Feliz spent much of the winter rediscovering his change-up – a pitch he'll need in order to survive a full season as a starter.


"At the end of spring, it was right where it should have been," manager Ron Washington said. "It's a very good change-up. We gave him time over the winter to prepare and tinker with the grip, so he'd be ready to go. He showed a lot of confidence in it and his other secondary pitches Read more

#1 New York Rangers vs. #8 Ottawa Senators
Season Series: Senators won 3-1 (Senators 4-1, Senators 3-0, Rangers 3-2, Senators 5-4 (SO))
Series Price at Pinnacle: NY Rangers -216/Ottawa +193

What to expect: The New York Rangers have been playing playoff hockey since Day 1 of the NHL season. They are the best shot blocking team in the NHL, they have an elite goaltender in Lundqvist that can steal a game if needed, they play suffocating defense, and they typically receive contributions from all four forward lines. I am not however quick to dismiss what head coach Paul MacLean has done with the Ottawa Senators this season. The complete 180 this team has done is remarkable and they have been a consistent team throughout the much of the season. With Spezza, Alfredsson, and Michalek up front, the Senators are a very dangerous team and tough draw for the Rangers as seen in some of their recent meetings. The key in this series (like most) is goaltending and it is hard to go against King Henrik. In the end, New York has the overall depth and defensive style to grind down Ottawa and win a seven game series. New York takes this series in 6 games, but like Read more

MLB Betting Recap: Texas' Darvish limps through first start

04.10.2012     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
FanGraphs gave a recap of Yu Darvish's MLB debut. Darvish had a rocky first inning (43 pitches, 4 ERs) but settled down enough to earn the win (as a huge -250 favorite). Overall, only 59 of his 111 pitches were strikes.


It wasn’t a stellar debut, and Yu Darvish walked too many batters. He still garnered ten swinging strikes on 111 pitches, for a 9% swinging strike rate that would have been a top-40 number among qualified starters last year. He settled down after a poor first inning and battled through a tough day. His team won. Most importantly, he certainly learned more about the American strike zone, and what sort of strategies he will have to employ when faced with lefty-heavy lineups in the future. It wasn’t a stellar debut, but it was a step forward.

NBA Betting Game Notes: Miami a 7-point favorite over Boston

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston at Miami -7 O/U 183

Thanks to Boston's late season surge (9-3 SU, 10-2 ATS run), tonight's game at Miami actually has some relevance. The teams split the first two meetings with the Celtics winning the most recent matchup, 91-72, on April 1. The Celtics have a three game lead over New York for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. If they playoffs started today, Boston would be the no. 4 seed while Miami would be no. 2.


“They’re too good of a team, too well-coached, I never get into that too-old mess,’’ MVP candidate James said. “What’s amazing about it? They got four probably Hall of Famers, Garnett, [Paul] Pierce, [Rajon] Rondo is on his way to being one of the greatest point guards, and [Ray Allen]. And then they got guys behind them that just play well. Doc [Rivers] puts them in position Read more

NBA Handicapping: Knicks and Bulls tangle against after Sunday's OT thriller

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New York at Chicago -8.5 O/U 186.5

Short turnaround for Chicago and New York as the Knicks got the best of the Bulls, 100-99 in overtime on Sunday in Madison Square Garden. Derrick Rose scored 29 points (8-of-26 FGs) in his first game back from injury. Both teams shot under 40% from the floor. The Bulls are two games ahead of Miami for the no. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference while New York is currently tied with Philadelphia for the eighth spot. Chicago head coach Tom Thibodeau is concerned about his team's slow starts (they missed 11 of their first 12 shots on Sunday). New York head coach Mike Woodson was extremely pleased with Iman Shumpert's defensive performance against Rose on Sunday.
