NBA Handicapping: Atlanta Hawks in tank mode for sixth seed?

04.16.2012     08:08 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last night's half assed performance at home vs. a depleted Toronto team (102-86) caused ESPN's John Hollinger to tweet this: Interesting playoff tanking situation emerging between Atlanta and Orlando -- I imagine both greatly prefer facing Indy to facing Boston...

Hawks are 11-2 SU vs. Indiana L13 but after reading some extremely positive player quotes about the team's current form prior to yesterday's upset loss, I can't personally see them shying away from anyone.

We'll see what happens tonight where the money has already poured in on Philadelphia in their road game at Orlando while Atlanta could solidify themselves as tankers if they blow back-to-backs vs. Toronto. Bettors have faith in the Hawks pushing them to -5.5.

Eastern Conference Playoff Standings as of 4/16
1. Chicago --
2. Miami 3.5
3. Indiana 8.0
4. Boston 10.5
5. Atlanta 11.0
6. Orlando 11.0
7. Philadelphia 14.5
8. New York 15.0
9. Milwaukee 17.0

Sportsmemo's Crow and Lange win weekend bass tournament

04.16.2012     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
Sportsmemo handicappers Brent Crow and Andrew Lange took home the $1,000 first place prize at a bass tournament on Alabama's Smith Lake this past Saturday. When asked how it felt to win his first-ever tournament Lange responded, "I'll be honest, the fact that I didn't hook my partner in the back or fall in the lake was in my eyes a pretty big accomplishment."

MLB Betting Update: Los Angeles Angels continue to struggle

04.16.2012     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Slow start for the hyped Los Angeles Angels (3-6, -5.50 units) who are set to begin a seven-game home stand against Oakland and Baltimore. One scout said he found it hard to believe the Angels won't be in the mix considering the team's starting pitching depth. But, the bullpen has been shaky as has the plate discipline (.315 OBP).


"They can be pitched to, because they have so many free swingers. They have a lot of guys who like to swing the bat."

Even after adding patient hitters Pujols and Chris Iannetta, the Angels went into Sunday having walked in 6.5 percent of their plate appearances, putting them 24th in the league in that category. Vernon Wells, Peter Bourjos and Morales still haven't taken a walk. Decline, obviously, could also be a factor. The average age of the Nos. 3 through 6 hitters Friday was nearly 35.

Philadelphia Eagles eager to cash in on casino advertising

04.16.2012     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With multiple casinos in the area, the Philadelphia Eagles are eager to cash in on the NFL’s recent ruling on casino advertisements. Teams are now able to promote casinos on stadium signs, game programs and radio broadcasts. Gaming facilities with sports betting will not be included.


"As Philly's casino, SugarHouse 'bleeds green,' so we would welcome the opportunity to work with the Eagles," general manager Wendy Hamilton said.

"Obviously, the NFL can't claim any moral certitude to its opposition to sports betting any longer," said New Jersey Sen. Ray Lesniak (D., Union), who sponsored a bill to allow sports betting at Atlantic City casinos and racetracks that passed in January and who is behind an effort to overturn the federal ban. "It's a further example of the hypocrisy of the NFL."

MLB Gambling Update: Lincecum tries to bounce back after back-to-back stinkers

UPDATE

Philadelphia -115 (Halladay) at San Francisco (Lincecum) O/U 6

Article on the current state of Tim Lincecum. Lincecum (0-1, 12.91 ERA) is off of the shortest start of his career (2.1 IP, 6 runs) and squares off against Roy Halladay tonight.


"I know he's going to be pitching on his 'A' game," Lincecum said, "and it just makes me want to be on my 'A' game even more so. ...

"Eliminating all doubts in myself, that's the biggest thing I can do. Just go out there and have confidence in my stuff because you see guys time and time again (having conviction) in whatever pitch they're throwing that day.

"Whether it's 85 or 95 (mph), you've got to have commitment in it, and I think

MLB Betting Tips: Declines in velocity can lead to profits

04.16.2012     06:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some notes on a few pitchers who have seen declines in their velocity compared to previous years – Stephen Strasburg and Tim Lincecum are slated to start tonight. Strasburg's decline doesn't appear to be an issue but more an attempt to "pace" himself this season. You'll notice than in the blog, we try to emphasize the importance of losses and gains in velocity. A vast majority of pitchers Read more

Upcoming movie about illegal online gambling

04.15.2012     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
What are the odds of this being good? Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake are set to star in an upcoming movie about illegal online gambling called Runner, Runner. Brad Furman is slated to direct, something he did on Lincoln Lawyer which was not nearly as bad as it looked on paper. The script for Runner, Runner was reportedly done by the two guys who wrote Rounders.









Sunday MLB Free Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox

Detroit (Porcello) at -Chicago- (Sale) -105 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Chicago


I'm buying Chicago lefty Chris Sale, especially early in the season when fatigue isn't an issue and teams are getting their first extended look at him. Sale was one of the better middle relievers in the American League last season and is starting to develop some solid off-speed offerings. He looked sharp in his first start, allowing one earned run in 6.2 innings (and a modest 100 pitches). I enjoy watching Detroit's Rick Porcello but he's never going to be a front-of-the-rotation arm. He generally throws strikes and mixes things well, but without big time velocity or an outpitch, he has trouble going entire games without getting into trouble. The White Sox are obviously familiar with Porcello having seen him seven times (6.91 ERA). Let's also not forget that the White Sox are playing some good baseball having won four straight with a chance for the three-game sweep against the Tigers. I think it happens.

NBA Gambling Preview: Miami and New York clash on ABC

Miami at -3 at New York O/U 188.5

Possible first round preview with Miami taking on New York for an early start (10 am PT) today. The Knicks are currently tied with Philadelphia for the seventh and eighth spots in the Eastern Conference (NY owns tiebreaker). Defense seems to be the main reason behind New York's late season surge (13-4 SU/ATS run). On Friday the Knicks held Washington to 65 points. Only four teams during that 17-game stretch topped 100 points. The Miami-New York series has trended heavily towards the under at 0-5-1 the last six including this year's two meeting that went under by 14.5 and 8.5 points.


“We know they’re good,” Heat forward Chris Bosh said. “We know what they’re capable of. Any series, even last year, the two-seven matchup we had with Philly, it was a tough series. They were a tough team. You have to
