NHL Betting Notes: Check out the price tag on the Los Angeles Kings

05.16.2012     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly
Even if you aren't a hockey fan, you have to be impressed by which the way the Los Angeles Kings have rolled through the Stanley Cup Playoffs. And they aren't just slipping by either – six straight wins by two goals or more. All this after entering the playoffs as the eighth seed. We've seen oddsmakers make slight adjustments with the Kings short road favorites the first two games of the Western Conference Finals vs. Phoenix. But the price tag is about to get really steep with LA a -200 home favorite for Thursday's Game 3. The Kings were a -200 favorite just twice during the regular season.

Pete Rose signed on for speaking engagement at Indiana casino

05.16.2012     07:57 AM     Printer Friendly
No one ever accused Pete Rose of not working hard. The Hit King is making a guest appearance at of all places, an Indiana casino this weekend. Rose will be rehashing his career as a baseball player.


"It’s me telling stories about how I got started playing ball, the impact my father had on me as an athlete, signing with the Reds and right on through the breaking of the (all-time) hit record," Rose told the newspaper.











MLB Betting News: Tampa likely to call up Cobb to replace Niemann

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With Jeff Niemann on the DL with a broken ankle, the Tampa Bay Rays are expected to make some changes to their starting rotation. The team doesn't have to decide on who will replace Niemann until this weekend though early indications suggest that we'll see righty Alex Cobb who pitched well as a rookie last season (3-2, 3.42 ERA). Chris Archer is another potential candidate.

MLB Gambling Notes: Numbers suggest Cleveland has been fortunate

05.16.2012     07:23 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On May 23 of last year, the Cleveland Indians had a seven game lead (30-15) in the American League Central but finished 15 games out. Most bettors knew some sort of decline was inevitable but perhaps not that dramatic. This year's start (20-16) is a little more realistic but a closer look shows that the Tribe may be once again overachieving.

The first thing that stands out is a -0.3 run differential. That equates to a pythWL of 17-19. Next is the schedule Cleveland has played. Of their 36 games, 27 came against team below .500 while only nine were against teams above .500. Those marks far and away "lead" the American League. Not surprising, the Indians have played the fewest games (7) of any AL team against the East Division. Note that they are 2-5 in those contests. Also of note is the fact that Cleveland is an amazing 8-1 in one-run games. Good teams often finish above .500 in one-run games but an 89% is a rate simply cannot be maintained.

Lastly, let's look at Cleveland's schedule the remainder of the season. The American League Central is pretty watered down at this point though Detroit and Kansas City have yet to play their best baseball. The Read more

Free MLB Betting Pick: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cincinnati (Leake) at NY Mets (Santana)
Recommendation: New York -135 5-inning


It doesn't appear that Cincinnati's Mike Leake (7.11 ERA) is fooling anyone these days. His strikeouts are down, his walks are up and it all takes place with velocity that hoovers around the high-80s. The only thing separating him from a batting practice pitcher is a decent curveball. He's potentially pitching for his job today and in a favorable ballpark but I still don't trust him. After missing all of 2011, Johan Santana has bounced back with strong numbers across the board. His velocity is down a tick but he's gotten 12 or more swinging strikes in five of seven starts which suggest his stuff is still effective. In the matchup of Leake vs. Santana, Santana has the edge and is worth a play on the 5-inning line at this price.

Nevada needs to create safe environment for online gambling

05.15.2012     01:03 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article from the Las Vegas Sun on the security measures needed to be put in place before poker goes online in Nevada. Not only do players need to feel confident that their money and information is safe but companies must be able to identify suspicious activities.


“With all those elements in place, you’d think a red flag would go up somewhere,” Ryan said. “Some companies just don’t have the level of security in place that they should.”

Ryan said his company had systems to detect players by location and by age. The system can also thwart excluded players, potential problem gamblers, individuals who have self-excluded themselves, potential money launderers and frauds and players engaged in collusion.

NBA Playoff Betting Notes: Miami now -6.5 vs. Indiana for Game 2

Indiana at Miami -6.5 O/U 186

Some news and notes on tonight's Game 2 matchup between Indiana and Miami.

Indiana head coach Frank Vogel didn't blame the refs for Game 1's loss but he willingly took a fine to let them know the Heat do a lot of flopping.


‘(The Heat) are the biggest flopping team in the NBA,’ Vogel said to the media Thursday. ‘It’ll be very interesting to see how the referees officiate the series and how much flopping they reward. Every drive to the basket, they have guys not making a play on the ball,’ Vogel continued, ‘but sliding in front of drivers. Oftentimes they’re falling down even before contact is even being made.’”

If you are a monk, you apparently aren't allowed to let loose – at all

05.15.2012     11:33 AM     Printer Friendly
Sorry, but we don't see what all the fuss is about with these Buddhist monks partaking in a little drinking and poker with the boys. If you're going to list "vows of individual liberation" as your calling card, well, these types of things are bound to happen. The real issue is finding the buzz kill that filmed it. Not very Zen-like if you ask us.

NBA Handicapping: Winning Wagers on Round 2 Home Favorites

05.15.2012     08:07 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We cashed a pair of NBA winners last night when the 76ers (+4.5) beat Boston outright and the Thunder (-7.5) romped over the LA Lakers 119-90. Miami and Oklahoma City won and covered their opening games in Round 2, and those victories highlight a proven and profitable playoff parameter on Round 2 home favorites.

Over the past decade, Round 2 home favorites have experienced more success than any other round of the NBA playoffs. Miami won and covered all three home games as favorite last season against Boston, and NBA home favorites have covered over 58% of their games since the start of the 2003 playoffs (sample size over 170 games).

That’s a solid base situation with a large sample size. This season, Round 2 home favorites are 2-2 as the Celtics failed to cover either game, and last season those Round 2 home favorites went 11-4. But add in this line parameter and the bigger home favorites provide a stronger profitable profile. Since 2003, home favorites of -5 or more points are now 84-22 straight-up and 67-38-1 ATS (64%).  In fact, over the past 30+ games, these home favorites of -5 or more points have covered over 70% of the time! That includes 2-0 Read more

MLB Betting News: Injuries take their toll on Washington Nationals

05.15.2012     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things have gone extremely well for the Washington Nationals (22-13) this season but injuries are starting to mount. Within the span of three days, the Nats lost catchers Wilson Ramos (ACL) and Sandy Leon (ankle) – Leon was injured in his MLB debut last night. That leaves Jesus Flores and likely Triple-A call-up Carlos Maldonado. Flores is a downgrade offensively from Ramos but the pitching staff has near perfect numbers with him behind the plate (13 games, 1.92 ERA, .155 BAA). Things could get tricky though when Flores needs a break. Maldonado caught sparingly last season and has only 17 career starts under his belt since 2006. Overall, Washington has 10 players currently on the DL.

New Jersey residents say no to online gambling, but yes to sports betting

05.15.2012     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This makes sense. According to a recent poll, 58% of New Jersey residents are against the legalization of online gambling. But the same amount favors the legalization of sports betting.


"Online gambling may be a good bet for new state revenue, but lots of voters don't think it's a good bet for New Jersey," said Peter Woolley, director of the poll. "I suppose there is something to be said for losing money without the inconvenience of leaving town, but that's usually called property tax or alimony."











Nevada eyes online poker by the end of 2012

Nevada Gaming Control Board Chairman Mark Lipparelli said that the state will issue its first online poker license within the next two months – with the hopes of providing actual games by the end of 2012. For all of the online legalization talk throughout the country, Nevada remains the only state where online gambling has been legislatively authorized.
