MLB Betting News: Texas' Grimm to make debut vs. Houston

06.16.2012     07:20 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Houston (Harrell) at Texas (Grimm) -195 O/U 10.5

Due to a slew of injuries, Texas was forced to call up rookie right-hander Justin Grimm for today's game against Texas. Here are his Minor League numbers. Here is an extended scouting report.

Grimm's repertoire is fastball/curveball/changeup, with the fastball generally being in the low-90s, though it can touch 95-96 mph, and the curveball being a potential plus pitch. His changeup is a work in progress, and like a lot of the Rangers' A-ball pitchers, how that third pitch develops will likely determine where Grimm's future lies. If the changeup can get to a point where it is a viable third

06.15.2012     12:43 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Cantor Gaming inked a deal with California's Colusa Casino Resort and will offer its famed mobile gambling. It obviously won't include sports betting but rather blackjack and baccarat.

Nevada offering low price tag on online gambling licenses

06.15.2012     12:29 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Compared to other states, purchasing an online gambling license in the state of Nevada is super cheap. We're talking WAY off the market price. The initial one-year license is $500K and $250K per year after that. The first licenses could be issued as soon as next week.

California, for example, has legislation pending that would require a $30 million license fee that would serve as a credit against monthly taxes imposed on gross gaming revenue. Just to apply for a license would cost from $1 million to $5 million.

Florida plans a nonrefundable $10 million fee credited against its 35 percent gross gaming tax in addition to an annual licensing fee of $500,000. Massachusetts will seek a $10 million fee that would be credited against gross gaming tax revenue.

Denmark striker awaits outcome of Paddy Power underwear incident

Update on the status of Denmark striker Nicklas Bendtner who for whatever reason decided to pull a mid-game marketing stunt in the EURO Cup.

Sportsmemo's Marty Otto: This could be a big deal if he ends up suspended. Bendtner is the best striker on the team and scored both goals last game. Denmark hasn't qualified for the next round yet and plays its toughest game against Germany upcoming.

Warm temps with the wind blowing out to left at 11-12 mph for this afternoon's Red Sox-Cubs matchup at Wrigley.

Dude blows $1.5 million he didn't really have at casino

A word to the wise. If you find yourself the beneficiary of an ATM glitch that provides you with unlimited funds, do not – we repeat – do not blow it all at a casino.

Woods remains US Open betting favorite after opening round -1

06.15.2012     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
All aboard the Tiger Woods bandwagon. Following yesterday's 1-under par 69, Woods is now a 2-1 betting favorite to win the US Open. Off of last week's Memorial Tournament victory, Woods was one of just six players to crack par in Round 1 at the Olympic Club. Michael Thompson leads the field after shooting an unbelievable -4 while four other golfers are tied with Woods for second at -1.

"This golf course, it's so demanding," Tiger told the media after his round. "And if you're off your game just a little bit, you're going to pay the price. And it's hard to make pars. Phil and Bubba were off just a little bit. This is one of those Opens where it's just really hard to make birdies. This is not like I was last year. This is a tough one. This is tough to make birdies. You've got to really grind, and for me I thought I hit the ball well today and I didn't have a whole lot of putts from ten feet or 15 feet or in. It's just hard to get the ball close."

MLB Betting News: Rockies have allowed 70 runs during eight-game losing streak

06.15.2012     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Colorado Rockies (24-38, -15.7 units) are now 0-9 in Interleague play and have lost eight straight games overall. During the eight-game losing streak, they've allowed 8, 10, 8, 10, 11, 7, 6 and 10 runs. Amazingly, since the late season meltdown of 2010, the Rockies are 98-143. For tonight, Jeff Francis makes his second start since coming off the DL. He allowed 10 hits and eight earned runs in 3.1 innings last time out against the Angels.

"What makes this so frustrating is that you want to win now," pitcher Jeff Francis said. "It's not about winning in two years, it's about winning now. Back then, it was almost like being in the minor leagues.

"I mean, you played to win and you played to be successful, but there was a bigger picture. But now it's hard to see a bigger picture because of these losses."

MLB Handicapping: Many reasons behind surge in pitching

06.15.2012     06:49 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Great article by ESPN's Jayson Stark on the continued rise of pitching in MLB. The obvious reason behind it is the removal (or decline) of steroids. But as Stark points out, there appears to be much more to it.

Want to guess how many fewer runs will be scored this season than were scored in the 2000 season, if teams continue sputtering along at their current pace? How about nearly 4,000. Right. We said FOUR THOUSAND runs.

"You can definitely see it in the second half," says one NL executive. "These guys are cooked. They're OK through June. But then the weather starts to get hot, they've played 80-90 games, and then the grind, the travel, the schedule starts to get to them."

"I've never seen as many hard throwers on every single team as I do now," says Derek Lowe. "It seems like every team has three or four guys coming out of that bullpen throwing 95 miles an hour."
