NCAA Football Gambling: Notre Dame has four QBs to choose from

04.20.2012     01:51 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We normally wait until about mid-July to post the obligatory Notre Dame Is Once Again Overrated blog. This one fails to get into much detail as the why that will occur again (it will), but does touch on how poor the quarterback play was last year and how head coach Brian Kelly must choose between four candidates – we're willing to bet a large sum of money at least three of the four start at some point. Welcome to the world of Just Barely Better Than Big Ten Average football.

MLB Betting Notes: Tampa's Moore could be tipping pitches

04.20.2012     11:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota (Hendriks) at Tampa Bay -165 O/U 7.5

Tampa Bay lefty Matt Moore's early season struggles may be tied to him tipping his pitches. Last time out Moore was rocked by Boston for six runs, two homers and four walks.


There were other possibilities: that Gimenez, in his first game since being called up from Triple A, was giving something away by setting up too soon, or that the Sox hitters were peeking in or somehow stealing signs. "All possibilities, I guess," Gimenez said.

"Guys were just ready to hit fastball," said Adrian Gonzalez, one of only two Red Sox hitters to swing at a breaking ball all afternoon. "When you see spin, you just lay off. A guy who throws hard, he's going to get more swings on the changeup than he is on the curveball because of the fact that it looks like a fastball. Read more

NBA Betting Alert: Boston Celtics expected to sit Big Four vs. Atlanta

04.20.2012     09:33 AM     Printer Friendly
Boston at Atlanta -10 O/U 179.5

Big line move in tonight's Atlanta-Boston matchup with the Celtics expected to sit Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo. The Celtics (37-26) have the fourth seeded locked up but if current fifth seed Atlanta (37-25) finishes with a better record, they would have home court advantage should the two teams meet in the first round. Boston's starting lineup for tonight is likely to be Avery Bradley, Keyon Dooling, Sasha Pavlovic, Brandon Bass and Greg Stiemsma.

MLB Gambling News: Scout impressed with New York's Santana, Pelfrey

04.20.2012     07:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One scout had positive things to say about New York's Johan Santana despite getting hit around in his last start. The scout later went on to praise Mike Pelfrey and his new mechanics.


“I was very encouraged with what I saw from Santana,” the scout said, referring to approach, of course, not results.

“He looked the same as he did two years ago. His velocity was fine, his mechanics were good. It didn’t look like he was favoring anything. There were some seeing-eye hits, and the defense. He looked pretty good to me.”

“Pelfrey looks good with his new mechanics,” the scout said. “Not only does that give him velocity, but it gives him some deception.”

NBA Handicapping: Miami's win over Chicago leaves top seed in question

04.20.2012     07:24 AM     Printer Friendly
Following last night's loss to the Heat, Chicago is no longer a lock for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. The Bulls have a 1.5 game lead with three games remaining (vs. Dallas, at Indiana, vs. Cleveland). Miami has four games remaining (vs. Washington, vs. Houston, at Boston, at Washington).

NBA Betting News: Orlando Magic prepare for postseason without Howard

04.20.2012     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Orlando Magic prepare for life after Dwight Howard as Howard will sit the remainder of the season with a back injury.

Orlando defense WITH Howard (54 games): 92.2 ppg, 43.8% FG
Orlando defense WITHOUT Howard (8 games): 97.9 ppg, 49.3% FG



"It's a [running] little bit harder on the closeout," he said. "It's [being] a half step quicker on a rotation. It's all of those things. Just a little bit more, and I think our guys want to do it, and that's a positive."

NBA Handicapping: New York's Stoudemire probable tonight vs. Cleveland

New York at Cleveland

New York's Amar'e Stoudemire (back) is expected to make his return tonight against Cleveland. In his absence, the Knicks went 9-4 SU/ATS and allowed 92.3 ppg.


"I don't think anything," Anthony said. "We're looking forward to him coming back. That's another body that we're missing that we definitely can use. Another rebounder, another guy we can go to, we don't have to rely on me every night. So I'm looking forward to having Amar'e back."

MLB Gambling Update: Seattle's Hernandez locked in with 12 strikeouts

04.20.2012     06:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seattle's Felix Hernandez may have earned back the trust of some bettors after last night's 8-inning, 12-strikeout performance against the red hot hitting Cleveland Indians. Hernandez had shown a decline in velocity as well as an uncharacteristically backwards GB-to-FB ratio (he was a stellar 10-3 last night). According to one Mariners team blog, King Felix's change-up was the key and has morphed into one of the better pitches in the league.


Then, up stepped Shin-Soo Choo. He’d been watching Felix throw change-ups all night long. He just watched Felix put Kipnis down with two deadly change-ups. He had to know what was coming, especially if he got behind in the count.

Curveball, taken, ball one.
Fastball, foul, strike one.
Fastball, taken, strike two.
Change-up, swinging strike, strike three.

There was no doubt that Felix was going to throw Shin-Soo Choo a Read more

MLB Betting Trends: San Diego's Volquez continues 1st inning struggles

04.20.2012     06:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia (Hamels) -135 at San Diego (Volquez) O/U 6

We spotted this seemingly random but noteworthy trend last season: Edison Volquez always seems to struggle in the first inning. Despite moving from Cincinnati to San Diego, Volquez is once again having difficulty getting through that first frame, allowing runs in two of his three starts. Bettors looking to take advantage can get creative with prop bets of "Will there be a run scored in the 1st inning?", "Total hits+runs+errors in 1st inning?", "Team winning after the 1st inning will be?" and "Which team will score first?".

1st inning career: 92.2 IP, 6.12 ERA, 17 HRs, .857 OPS
1st inning 2012: 3.0 IP, 4 ERs, .385 BAA, .862 OPS

Offshore sportsbook the first to post NFL Week 1 lines

04.19.2012     01:33 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the race to post the first NFL lines of the season BetOnline took first prize with $500 limits on Week 1's games. Las Vegas' LVH followed suit yesterday. Note that BetOnline's oddsmakers said despite the perceived risk, the early handle they receive is minimal and they'll ultimately need underdogs and Unders to cash like most weeks.


“People that say things like that don’t understand the business,” Mason said Wednesday night. “Our limits on the openers are just $500. Besides, 1 percent of 1 percent of the total handle we get on these games came in last night and today. Come Sept. 5, we’ll be needing the underdogs and the unders in 80 percent of the games like usual.”

“We have a team of three oddsmakers that I’m part of, plus we use some consultants, so we were making our own numbers and after a while of waiting for others to post the openers we saw ours were as good as anyone else’s and we decided to go ahead and throw them out there first,” Mason said. “It worked for us Read more

NBA Betting News: Miami-Chicago matchup has some meaning

04.19.2012     12:35 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago at Miami -6 O/U 183.5

Don't get too excited but Chicago and Miami actually have something to play for with the Heat only two game back in the loss column for the top seed in the Eastern Conference. Chicago's Luol Deng (ribs) is probable, Derrick Rose (foot) is doubtful and Miami's Dwayne Wade (ankle) has been upgraded to probable.


“Everything is still up for grabs right now,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. “So if you have an opportunity, you have to take it.”

“We need to play for something,” said LeBron James, who had 28 points in three quarters against Toronto. “It’s not all about the No. 1 seed, it’s about continuing to get better, and if it happens we’ll relish that moment. None of us want to go into the postseason losing games.”

MLB Handicapping: Pressure on New York's Hughes vs. Minnesota

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota (Swarzak) at New York (Hughes) -210 O/U 9.5

Once again we see New York's Phil Hughes pitching to save his spot in the rotation with Andy Pettitte and Michael Pineda close to returning. Hughes claims that in his first two starts, he used too much of his cutter and change-up and will focus more on throwing fastballs and curveballs tonight against Minnesota. According to FanGraphs, Hughes’ velocity has been good.


"For me, I don't think he has the makeup to start," the scout said. "He is a two-inning reliever who can rear back and throw his fastball."

"He's gotten into some longer counts and has not been able to put hitters away," Joe Girardi said. "He has gotten plenty of strikeouts up, but he has also made some mistakes up. There is a fine line when you pitch up Read more

Free MLB Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies at San Diego Padres

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia (Worley) -115 at San Diego (Wieland) O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Philadelphia


Expect the Phils to open this weekend series strong tonight behind Vance Worley. Floundering through the first 12 games at 5-7 due to an anemic offense, Philadelphia could find this venue to their liking. With a current lineup featuring very little power, they figure to be built perfectly on offense for this park. Juan Pierre, Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence can all use their singles and gap style hitting along with their speed to score runs in Petco. Tonight’s opposing starter Joe Wieland was very accommodating to the Los Angeles Dodgers in his only start thus far allowing six runs on six hits (16 total bases) plus a pair of walks in just five innings of work. Wieland’s penchant for pounding the strike zone and not yet mastering anything off speed with a significant velocity differential should play into the hands of the free swinging Phillies hitters. Meanwhile, San Diego’s .179 home batting average, .298 on base percentage and .274 slugging percentage, all indicate Worley could put together another quality outing like he did Read more

NHL Playoff Free Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues at San Jose Sharks

Submitted by Sammy P Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
St. Louis at San Jose -110 O/U 5
Recommendation: Under


Heading into Game 4 in San Jose tonight this series has been a very close hard fought affair.  St. Louis holds the 2-1 series lead, but San Jose still has the opportunity on its home ice to get back in the series and knot things up at two games apiece.  The first three games have seen scores of 3-2, 3-0, and 4-3.  The main storyline in this series has been the Blues’ Power Play efficiency which has seen at least one goal scored in all three games (5-for-13 for the series).  In fact, St. Louis went 3-for-4 on the man advantage on Monday night while San Jose also added a PP goal going 1-for-4.  If San Jose wants to get back into this series they will have to be better on their PK and they know this.  "We just haven't moved well together [on the PK]," forward Joe Pavelski said. "We know we can do it. We've shown it in the past. We've got to get the clears when we get the chance and get the first save, which we have. We have to do a better job of clearing out."  San Jose will be more aggressive on their kill tonight and we'll end up seeing Read more

NBA Handicapping: Loss to Washington puts Milwaukee on the brink

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.
