MLB Handicapping: Milwaukee's offense struggles to produce

04.23.2012     12:13 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Houston (Harrell) at Milwaukee (Greinke) -215 O/U 7.5

Since starting the season 3-1 (23 runs), the Milwaukee Brewers have gone ice cold with the bats. Over the last 11 games, the Brew Crew are 4-7 and hitting .212 with a .281 OBP as a team.

Tonight, they may not need many runs with Zach Greinke on the hill. Milwaukee is 19-0 in Greinke's last 19 starts at Miller Park dating back to last season. That success however is certainly reflected in a price that is now well north of -200.


"It's a tough loss," said Gallardo, who got virtually no offensive support in seven innings of eight-strikeout work. "We're not where we want to be or need to be (offensively) now. We just need one (at-bat) right now to get things going. We have the guys to do that."

"This lineup will eventually hit,"

MLB Gambling Notes: Shaun Marcum's crazy BABIP baffles bettors

04.23.2012     10:22 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I almost spit up my coffee this morning when I read that SHAUN FREAKIN’ MARCUM is currently tops in all of baseball (starters) in swinging strikes at 15.4% (league average is 8.4%). All of you have seen Marcum pitch and while he throw strikes and doesn’t issue many walks, his stuff is more baffling than impressive. He swinging strike rate obviously won’t last but perhaps even more amazing has been Marcum’s ability to maintain below league average BABIP for such a long period of time.

Since 2007, Marcum has thrown 725.1 innings with a rock solid 3.67 ERA and 48-29 record. During that span, his yearly BABIP numbers are: .269, .246, .280, .264, .250...for an average of .266!

I went on Baseball Reference and looked up other starting pitchers who have had similar career paths and found that none of them are even close to being that fortunate. Yovano Gallardo's lifetime BABIP is .302, Jair Jurrjens' is .297 and Daisuke Matsuzaka's is .292. Marcum has had one "normal" season (only 78.1 IP) BABIP wise with a Read more

Las Vegas man pockets $53K from NCAA Tournament contest

04.23.2012     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
Cool story about the guy who won Station Casino's Last Man Standing NCAA Tournament contest. Contestants had to pick one game against the spread every day of the tournament. The gentleman who won went a perfect 10-0 but he got some fortunate bounces including Xavier -4.5 vs. Lehigh (Xavier was down by 17) and Louisville +1.5 vs. Florida (Louisville outscored Florida by 15 points over the final 10 minutes). For his efforts, he took home the $53K grand prize – on a $25 entry free. Sweet!


“I told myself that if I was going to lose, I was going to lose with my own picks,” Cohen said. “I wasn’t going to take anyone else’s advice and lose.”

NBA Handicapping: Bulls not interested in backing off final two games

04.23.2012     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With only two regular season games remaining, the Chicago Bulls are pretty much a lock for the top seed in the Eastern Conference (two game lead over Miami). But some of the player quotes suggest they won't be taking those final two contests (at Indiana, vs. Cleveland) lightly.


“We can’t look back,” forward Taj Gibson said. “We’ve got to keep pushing forward. We know we want to finish strong, that’s the main thing. We want the best record. What team wouldn’t want that after going so hard during this condensed season? We’re going to go after it. I know Thibs isn’t a fan of resting guys. We don’t want rest. It’s the time of the season where you can’t really rest.”

“You can control what you can control,” center Joakim Noah said. “Right now, it’s all about getting better. It’s all about getting a little momentum for the playoffs. But we know Indiana is going to come ready to play, and it will be a playoff atmosphere there.

Poker informant spotted in New York

04.22.2012     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Most of you by now are familiar with the name Daniel Tzvetkoff. If not, he was one of if not the main contributor in kick starting the Black Friday/online poker disaster. Long story short, he basically turned informant in order to avoid jail time and had been off the grid since mid-2010 thanks to some assistance from the FBI. But for whatever reason, Australia's Courier-Mail recently spotted (and photographed) him and his family in New York City. When confronted by the media, Tzvetkoff first denied who he was but then later said, "Look mate, you're going to get in a lot of trouble with me right now". We're not sure if there is some movie-like bounty on this guy's head but he isn't very popular – he’s expected to play "witness" for more upcoming poker trials.

MLB Handicapping: Miami's Johnson makes positive adjustments

04.22.2012     06:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami (Johnson) -115 at Washington (Gonzalez) O/U 6.5

A positive article on Miami's Josh Johnson heading into this afternoon's game against Washington. Johnson was not sharp in his first two starts of the season (8.2 IP, 9 ERs) but allowed only two runs in seven innings last time vs. Chicago. He said that he spotted a flaw in his delivery and made the proper mechanical adjustment.


 “When my timing’s off everything the past month hasn’t really felt quite there,” Johnson said. “I wasn’t really sure what it was until we went back to look at the video and saw that my hands werent breaking at the correct time and doing what I’ve always done through my career,” Johnson said, adding that after the adjustment, “I felt like I could let it go.”

MLB Betting Trends: How teams fare after being no-hit

04.22.2012     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
Chicago's Philip Humber decided to chuck a perfect game against Seattle yesterday so we went back and pulled the data of how team's fared after having a no-hitter or perfect game (*) thrown against them. The initial thought was that embarrassment and pride would provide some sort of spark the next game. Umm, not that case as those teams went 5-12.
