MLB Betting Trends with Low Totals

05.04.2012     10:29 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
We cashed our top-rated 20* Big Drive over/under Game of the Month yesterday and provided our thoughts and written analysis of the Cardinals/Pirates over the total winner. While I noted the strong current hitting of the Cardinals and pitching performances and match-ups, my research and noted totals trends below may have you searching out more UNDER the total plays in the next few months.

On May 1, the Padres beat the Brewers 2-0 at Petco Park. The over/under line was 6 runs and both starting pitchers Shawn Marcum and Edison Volquez threw seven shutout innings of three-hit baseball. The Padres were a home underdog in that contest and I’ve noted some solid UNDER the total results on home underdogs with low posted totals below.

There have been 17 games played at Petco Park this season and we have yet to see a posted total above 7 runs. Despite the low posted totals, Padres home games have still gone 7-9-1 over/under.

Through the month of April, MLB teams were batting a combined .249. The last time MLB teams combined to hit under .250 for an entire season Read more

MLB Betting News: Halladay not in top form this season

05.04.2012     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
When a top-tier starter is off of his game, bettors have to be ready to pounce. Practically everyone has been aware of Tim Lincecum's struggles and those who have played against him have been rewarded. Another big name pitcher that may not be right is Philadelphia's Roy Halladay. On Wednesday, Halladay had one of the worst outings of his career, allowing eight earned runs and 12 hits against Atlanta. Following the outing, Halladay took a non-baseball related leave of absence from the team and is scheduled to return today. His next start is slated for Monday. Prior to the outing vs. Atlanta, Halladay's ERA of 1.95 made it seems as if nothing was wrong. But his strikeout numbers are down and his walks are up. There may not being anything wrong with the soon-to-be 35-year-old but he is certainly worth keeping an eye on.

“I was good, honestly,” Halladay said after the game. “I wish I had a better reason, but I don’t. It was just a lack of execution on pitches in key

Free MLB Betting Pick: Texas Rangers at Cleveland Indians

Texas (Lewis) -140 at Cleveland (Gomez) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under

Two of the hottest pitchers in the American League match up tonight in Cleveland with Colby Lewis taking on Jeanmar Gomez.  Possibly the best kept secret in the AL this season is Jeanmar Gomez.  A young pitcher out of Caracas, Gomez has shown considerable growth after his first two seasons in the majors and he has been lights out for the Indians to start the young campaign.  In his first start this season he was thrown out of the game in the 2nd inning for throwing at a Kansas City batter prompting the benches to clear.  Since then, he has two quality starts posting an overall WHIP of 0.85 and an ERA of 2.35.  He is definitely a young pitcher to keep your eye on as this is by no means the same Gomez from past seasons, and I'm being proactive with him until the marketplace catches up despite the probable return of Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre to the Texas lineup tonight.  Texas hurler Read more

MLB Handicapping: Tigers try to pinpoint Scherzer's problems

05.04.2012     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Trying to get a beat on Detroit Max Scherzer is extremely difficult. When he's on, he performs like a front-of-the-rotation arm and when he's not, he looks like Rick Porcello on a bad day. Mechanical flaws seem to be Scherzer's biggest enemy and after five starts and a 7.77 ERA, the Tigers have apparently caught what he is doing wrong. We recommend a wait-and-see approach. Scherzer is slated to throw at home on Saturday against the White Sox.

Scherzer and Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones believe they’ve found a flaw in the righty’s mechanics, the Detroit Free Press reports. “We’re trying to get him to keep his hands more in the middle of his body as opposed to taking them behind him,” Jones said. “He’s gotten into a little bit of a habit of carrying them behind his body too far. That affects his lead arm getting on the target and staying there long enough.”

Business Insider calls out Simmons' NBA MVP wager

05.04.2012     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Why is this a story? And since when did Business Insider have a sports betting tactical unit? Alas, Bill Simmons' NBA MVP vote has been voided because he placed a wager on the outcome. Geesh. Say what you want about Simmons, but his vote is probably one of the few that comes from a place of actual knowledge.

"Bill had never received a ballot before and didn't find out he had one until two-thirds of the season had passed. By that time he had made multiple MVP bets, two of which he had discussed on podcasts. He ended up withdrawing his MVP vote to avoid the perception of any conflict."

MLB Gambling News: Yankees lose Rivera for the season

05.04.2012     06:31 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Now don't go getting all teary eyed on us but Mariano Rivera is going to be out for a while. We know, we know, the guy is a warrior and still one of the best relievers in the game. Don't worry, the Yankees have some decent arms that can fill his spot. David Robertson hasn't given up a run all season. Rafael Soriano has closed games before. No, neither one is as trustworthy and you can bet someone is going to blow a save here in the next week or so causing the earth's crust to shift. We can't wait either.

Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland Indians at Chicago White Sox

05.03.2012     12:48 PM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Cleveland (Masterson) at Chicago WS (Danks) -120 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over

Justin Masterson made a few adjustments prior to his last start and got better results in allowing only two runs in 8.1 innings – albeit against the soft hitting Angels. But his velocity remains down and his command is very erratic. In his last three outings, Masterson has walked 15 batters. This after walking less than two per start last season. Like Masterson, John Danks hasn't been "right" at all this season and a lack of command has been the main culprit. Danks walked only 46 batters last season and has already issued 15 in five starts including four in each of his last two outings. As a result, he's allowed three or more runs in every outing. These struggles were apparent from both pitchers in an early season meeting where the duo combined for seven earned runs, 15 hits, six walks and five strikeouts with neither pitcher lasting past the sixth inning. Unseasonably warm weather with gusty Read more

MLB Betting News: Milwaukee Brewers banged up, Braun injures Achilles

05.03.2012     11:33 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Injuries are starting to mount for the Milwaukee Brewers. Ryan Braun left yesterday's game against San Diego with an Achilles strain. He's questionable for tomorrow's opening game series against San Francisco. Matt Gamel is out with an ACL tear. Gamel hadn't done much with the bat this season but the Brewers were banking on him eventually turning things around. Now they are considering moving Corey Hart to first base. And two weeks ago, Chris Narverson was lost for the season with rotator cuff injury.

NBA Betting Alert: Atlanta's Smith doubtful for Friday's Game 3 at Boston

05.03.2012     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Atlanta at Boston -8 O/U 173.5

Atlanta's Josh Smith (knee) is listed as doubtful for Friday's Game 3 in Boston. Smith went for 22 points and 18 rebounds and 16-12 in Games 1 and 2 respectively.

“I’m always concerned in these type of situations,’’ Drew said Wednesday, before results of the MRI were revealed. “I know Josh is a guy that if it’s just hurting, he’s going to play. He has that kind of toughness.

“But if it’s a situation where he absolutely, positively can’t play, then he won’t be out there. He’s just been so good for us. And certainly he’s a key component in order for us to have success.’’

Plan to charge for phoned in horse racing bets tossed out

05.03.2012     07:29 AM     Printer Friendly
Can you imagine having to pay a $1 every time you called in a bet? It nearly happened courtesy of the New York Racing Association. Luckily, enough people justifiably bitched and complained so the NYRA backed off of its plan.

"The fee was originally announced due to rising costs associated with maintaining live operator phone service," NYRA spokesman Dan Silver stated in an email. "However, after listening to feedback from our customers, we have decided that NYRA Rewards will not institute a $1 fee per call for live operator phone service and these calls will continue to be free of charge."

MLB Handicapping: Walks and lack of change-up hurt Chicago's Danks

05.03.2012     06:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Cleveland (Masterson) at Chicago WS (Danks) -120 O/U 8

Chicago's John Danks has always been a notoriously slower starter but this season has been particularly rough. His command has been very spotty (15 walks) which is uncharacteristic for a guy who issued just 46 free passes in 170 innings last season. Danks himself commented that his normally effective change-up has been off and on.

"Walks have bit me in the ass all year to this point," Danks sighed. "[It's] definitely something we're going to have to focus on, that and keeping the ball in the ballpark. It's frustrating, it sucks. It sucks to go out there and get your hat handed to you. We're all competitive, we don't want that to happen, and what are you gonna do? Try to be ready for the next one."

"It was hit or miss.

Longshot money provides value on true contenders for Kentucky Derby

05.03.2012     06:33 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Because of the recent success of longshots in the Kentucky Derby (see: Mine that Bird's 50-1 win in 2009), casual bettors haven't been shy about trying to find the next big underdog. But for more serious players, the influx of longshot money – which is expected again this year – has provided extra value among the contenders. It also shortens the odds of horses than have virtually no shot yet come Saturday, they’ll be priced at less than 40-1.

The dumb money phenomenon does not show up nearly as much in the exotic pools because novice horseplayers tend to stay away from wagers like the exacta and trifecta. The win and even place and show pools are where all the value is.

So sit back and enjoy the race on Saturday, and bet to win on the horses that make sense. You may not cash, but at least you will have made a smart wager.
