MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at Philadelphia Phillies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston (Johnson) -125 at Philadelphia (Hellickson) O/U 10
Recommendation: Boston

Despite being 21-42 as a team, the Philadelphia Phillies are 9-4 when Jeremy Hellickson toes the rubber. Hellickson started the season strong (1.80 ERA first five starts) but has been exposed in a big way of late. Over his last eight outings, Hellickson has been pounded to the tune of a 6.43 ERA and 12 home runs allowed. He also sports an alarming 22/17 K-to-BB ratio. He's simply not fooling anyone and is tasked with facing an above average American League lineup tonight.

Boston is priced rather cheaply tonight because unproven rookie Brian Johnson is on the bump. Johnson, a former first round pick, has been serviceable with a 3.44 ERA and 16/4 K-to-BB ratio in three starts. And his Minor League stats (2.61 ERA over 471 IP), suggest he'll be able to get MLB hitters out at a decent rate. My issue with Johnson is that he's not a big swing-and-miss arm and tends to give up a lot of fly balls. That's not ideal tossing in Fenway against the American League but in this spot, even in a hitter friendly park, he has a good chance to post a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers at Cleveland Indians

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Los Angeles (McCarthy) +140 at Cleveland (Kluber) O/U 8
Recommendation: Los Angeles

The Cleveland Indians host the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight at Progressive Field. Corey Kluber takes the hill for the Tribe; his ninth start of the year and third since being activated from the DL. Last time out, Kluber went six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts against the White Sox. It was a very favorable matchup and the second time this season Kluber rolled through Chicago's lineup. In fact, if you eliminate Kluber's two outings against the White Sox, his ERA is an alarming 5.50 over seven starts.

Brandon McCarthy doesn't always get the respect he deserves because he's so injury prone. But when healthy, his stuff grades out as well above average. Note that his average exit velocity against, according to Statcast, is 84.4 mph. That ranks seventh-best out of 146 starters with at least 100 balls put in play. McCarthy has been throwing a cutter at a much higher rate this year which has significantly helped his ability to tame left-handed bats.

Cleveland is one of the most over-priced teams in Read more

New Jersey says you'll be able to bet on the NFL by 2018 (LOL!)

Oh, New Jersey. You mean well but remain so naive. Here were have Chris Christie saying betting on the NFL will be a go by 2018. They said the same thing back in 2013 when the Garden State hosted Super Bowl XLVIII. 


"They pick and choose," the New Jersey governor said. "For instance, the Obama administration said it was OK to legalize recreational marijuana even though marijuana is still illegal on federal level, but the Obama administration said 'No' on gambling."

Leagues had pow-wow with AGA to discuss sports betting in US

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A bunch of guys got together and talked about legalized sports betting. The outcome wasn't very exciting.


"I think what the unions are trying to do now, wisely, is learn everything they can learn [about regulated sports betting]," Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association, said on a Monday press call to announce the formation of the American Sports Betting Coalition.

"I can tell you from the questions they asked us, they were good questions," Freeman said. "They're thoughtful on this. They're going to be a key stakeholder on how this plays out."











Mayweather-McGregor is supposed to happen this August

So they don't want to turn the negotiations of the potential (probable?) Mayweather-McGregor "fight" into a "circus." Isn't that the whole point of putting this fight together? Create as much of a circus-like environment as possible so no one pays attention to just how shitty the actual fight is going to be.


"There are negotiations ongoing, but none of us wants to turn this into the circus that the Mayweather-[Manny] Pacquiao negotiations were, so I think it's best if we keep all the business discussions private until the deal is done," Showtime Sports executive vice president and general manager Stephen Espinoza told ESPN on Monday night.

MLB Handicapping: League-wide home run rate continues to climb

06.13.2017     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Look across the MLB slate for today. What do you notice? For starters, only one game -- in San Francisco -- is lined below 8. Three games are lined 10 or higher and Colorado and Arizona are on the road. Marcus Stroman is hitting opposite field bombs. Justin Smoak is closing in on his career high in dingers...through 62 games. Last night, Nick Markakis, who has previously hit one home run, took Stephen Strasburg deep to the opposite field. Seriously, what the hell is going on? We know what's going on: MLB did something to the baseball and it's resulted in an incredible rise in home run rate. Surprisingly, "overs" have only hit at around 52.5% -- but that number is obviously skewed some as a majority of totals over the last month plus have been bet and thus closed higher. One would think we're approaching a tipping point but the weather is only going to get warmer meaning balls will be flying even further over the next three months.


Baseball is on its 15th consecutive regular-season month with a higher home-run rate on contact than the previous
