NBA Handicapping: Loss to Washington puts Milwaukee on the brink

04.19.2012     06:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Milwaukee at Indiana -5.5 O/U 205.5

Last night's loss to Washington may have been the final nail in the coffin for the Milwaukee Bucks who now trail Philadelphia by 2.5 games for the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bucks have five games remaining including next Wednesday vs. the 76ers (whoever wins will own the tiebreaker). Tonight's opponent, Indiana, has won and covered both meetings this season.  


"It's tough to lose games against teams that are not in the fight or in the race for the playoffs. Then again, we can't say this is the most disappointing loss of the season," he said. "It shouldn't have come down to this game or the next game."

"It's an absolute must-win for us. We have to find a way to get that game," Skiles said.

NBA Betting Alert: Struggling Philadelphia bet up to -9.5 vs. Cleveland

04.18.2012     01:43 PM     Printer Friendly
Looks like the old "must win" situation is getting some love from the betting markets with Philadelphia bet up from -6.5 to -9.5 for tonight's road game at Cleveland. Unless there was some sort of pregame agreement that the Cavs were only going to play four players, supporting the 76ers at this price in this type of situation seems a bit risky, no? (0-3 SU/ATS last three, 6-13 SU/ATS since 3/14). Line history courtesy of CRIS.

Kentucky Derby's large field remains a challenge for bettors

04.18.2012     01:29 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on the difficulty of betting the Kentucky Derby. For some, the solution has been a $1 eight-horse superfecta box ($1,680).


There is a Hall of Fame trainer who became know a decade or so ago for the frequency with which he cashed large superfecta tickets, particularly during the summer meeting at Saratoga. Eventually, his method became known to those with connections on the other side of the betting windows. When a specific set of circumstances were in place -- specifically the wide-open race with a large field -- the bet was -- and in all likelihood still is -- an eight-horse superfecta box. The key was anchored not in picking winners but in the process of elimination.

Since 2008 -- admittedly a small sample but nevertheless current and reflective of recent trends -- only one Derby winner, Big Brown, has returned less than $10.00. The favorite that year, the last horse to win both the Derby and Preakness, paid $6.80 at Churchill. In subsequent years, Mine That Bird paid $103.20, Super Saver $18 and Animal Kingdom $43.80.

MLB Gambling Notes: Target Field wind remains big obstacle for hitters

04.18.2012     12:20 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
TwinCities.com did an extensive article on the impact Minnesota's Target Field has had on offenses due in large part to wind patterns. Nothing we as bettors weren't already aware of but still well worth the read.


- Target Field allowed the third-fewest home runs per game in the American League in 2010 and 2011, according to ESPN's Home Run Tracker.

-It is the fourth-toughest park in the AL for hitters, according to ESPN's Park Factors, which calculates how each ballpark plays in comparison to the league average.

"When it's warm, and the ball wants to carry, the winds are fighting that, and they're blowing through that gap in right," Huttner said. "It boils down to the way the park is laid out. The wind and weather is almost always working against the ball traveling out of Target Field."

"It's definitely frustrating as a left-handed hitter," Mauer said. "I'd be lying if I told you there aren't times at the plate where you're like, 'Oh, I've got to maybe pull a ball,' Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: New York Knicks at New Jersey Nets

04.18.2012     11:11 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New York at New Jersey +8.5 O/U 193
Recommendation: New Jersey


It’s been another long, ugly season in New Jersey, but head coach Avery Johnson still has his team fighting hard down the stretch.  A matchup with their rivals from across the river isn’t likely to change that.  We saw the Nets take Miami down to the wire in their last game; a wire-to-wire pointspread cover as +8.5 underdogs.  Now the betting markets are trying to tell us that the Knicks – playing on the second night of back-to-backs, one night after hitting a whopping 19 three pointers in a national TV win over Boston – deserve the same market respect as Miami did two nights ago. 

Plain and simple: I’m not buying that argument.  If Miami was -8.5 at Jersey two days ago, the tired Knicks have no business laying the same spread.  Here’s a pertinent quote from Coach Johnson following the Nets loss to Miami.  “(Monday) was the first time Read more

Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Miami Marlins

04.18.2012     10:03 AM         Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Garza) at Miami (Buehrle)
Recommendation: Chicago +110 1st 5 innings


We cashed a 5-inning wager this week on the Padres with underrated pitcher Cory Luebke at a plus-price over Colorado’s Jeremy Guthrie. San Diego led 5-1 after five innings on its way to a 7-1 win. Today we’ll fire with another strong starter on the road at a plus price.

Matt Garza is pitching in his prime and elevating himself among the games top pitchers. Garza is 1-0 with a 1.23 ERA in two home starts this season. He has 14 strikeouts in 14+ innings with just three walks and eight hits allowed for a 0.75 WHIP. Opponents are hitting just .160 against Garza as his ground ball profile has improved and made him even tougher to hit. Last season was Garza’s first with the Cubs after coming over to the National League from Tampa Bay. Garza went just 10-10, but he was one of the stronger pitchers in the NL with a 197 Ks in 198 innings, a 1.26 WHIP, 3.32 ERA and .245 BAA. While his road ERA was over 4.50, note he allowed just three HRs in 81 innings and he’ll face an average Marlins lineup that’s hitting just .243.

MLB Handicapping: Washington's starting rotation thrives with the fastball

04.18.2012     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on the Washington Nationals and they stellar starting rotation which is a combined 5-1 with a 1.69 ERA and .179 BA against. They've been getting the job done in large part by committing to the fastball. The group's average heater is 93.4 mph – the highest mark from a rotation since FanGraphs starting tracking the data in 2002. In 74.2 innings, the starting five has amassed 108 swinging strikes.


“Against these guys, it’s like you don’t get a chance to catch your breath,” Cincinnati Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs said. “You get done with one, it’s just on to the next one. We were here for four days. All four guys, and we missed Strasburg, can hit the mid-90s. That’s tough. It’s very rare. Usually, you only have one guy in the rotation who throws like that.”

“It does go along with my philosophy,” General Manager Mike Rizzo said. “The radar readings, per se, there’s no philosophy there. Read more

Betting against the Minnesota Timberwolves in April is not a bad idea

04.18.2012     06:09 AM     Printer Friendly
The last time the Minnesota Timberwolves won a game in April was back in 2009 (0-27 SU). The against-the-spread results during that span are also awful (7-20). These outcomes aren't that shocking considering that Aprils in the NBA are notorious for bringing out the best in "tank mode" from bottom-tier teams. This year's Minnesota squad however was looking to reverse that trend but a brutal schedule following the All-Star break and various injuries made it too difficult to overcome. The T-wolves play at Detroit tonight, host fellow "tanker" Golden State on Sunday, and close out the year vs. Denver.
