MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

09.26.2017     09:55 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Chicago (Arrieta) +102 at St. Louis (Martinez) O/U 8
Recommendation: Chicago

Here’s the quote from Cubs manager Joe Maddon following Chicago’s blowout win in St Louis last night: “We're definitely arriving at the same mental level we've had the last two seasons. The guys have been there, done that. They know what it's about.” That’s a pretty strong ‘bet-on’ quote for a team priced as underdogs tonight, with a chance to clinch the NL Central title on their biggest rival’s home field with a victory here.

The betting markets are doing what they do – overvaluing the starting pitching matchup at the expense of all other factors. And there’s not much love for Jake Arrieta in the markets right now. Arrieta was sharp in his first start back from a stint on the DL, throwing five innings of one run ball in Milwaukee. Maddon, following that start: “I didn't know what to expect. I thought (Arrieta) was really sharp. I was really surprised at how good he looked.” Chicago’s bullpen behind him is as good as any in baseball, and it’s a fresh pen, working Read more

College Football Gambling: South Alabama fires offensive coordinator

09.26.2017     09:52 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
South Alabama became the latest team to fire a coordinator as head coach Joey Jones let go OC Bryant Vincent in the wake of last week's 29-23 double OT home loss to Idaho. Offensive line coach Richard Owens, who previously served as UAB's OC, will take over. The Jaguars are currently two touchdown underdogs for Saturday's game at Louisiana Tech.

"Third downs is certainly an area (of concern)," Jones said. "Throwing the ball downfield a little bit more is something we'll do. I think we've gotten into running the ball a little bit more, and I think that's been a good thing. ... But you've got to convert on third down. If not, you're not going to win many ball games.

"You can't change much during the middle of the season, but we'll tweak some things. Nothing that will be different to (outsiders)."

College Football Betting: LSU's inability to block hindering offensive improvement

09.26.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Remember all of the preseason talk about how fast and dynamic LSU's offense was going to be under newly hired offensive coordinator Matt Canada? Yeah, well, four games into the season, the Tigers look awful similar to previous editions where moving the football is a constant chore. And while 6.27 yards per play looks decent on the surface, keep in mind who LSU has played and who they will play moving forward. BYU's defense allowed over 7 yards per play to Wisconsin. Mississippi State's defense, which held LSU to 7 points and 270 total yards, coughed up 7.48 ypp to Georgia. And Syracuse's defense, while improved, took advantage of key offensive injuries to both Middle Tennessee State and Central Michigan. LSU managed to hit on a few big plays against the Orange but struggled for much of the game. The biggest issue for the Tigers is the offensive line. After rushing for over 6 yards per carry, this year's unit is averaging only 4.7 ypc. Read more

NFL Gambling News: Vegas sportsbooks score big thanks to underdog-heavy Week 3

09.25.2017     09:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Any Las Vegas sportsbook director will tell you that NFL underdogs, particularly of the outright variety, are a good thing. Week 3 was especially good to the books as underdogs went 8-7 SU and 12-3 ATS. And after trending under the total the first weeks, "overs" popped for a 10-4-1 O/U mark.

"We had a ton of money-line parlays on the Steelers, ton of teasers," Jay Rood, vice president of MGM race and sports, said. "That was a complete blow to the public."

NFL Handicapping: 6-point teaser results through Week 3

09.25.2017     09:13 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Below is a quick list of the results for 6-point teasers as of this morning. We used "basic fundamental strategy" in terms of who qualified -- short underdogs pushed to a touchdown or more and favorites down to -2.5 or less. Under these parameters, teams went 26-9. This of course isn't an exact science as lines move throughout the week and certain shops protect against teasers by adjusting their lines or going so far as to offer different lines for games vs. teasers.

Week 1 (8-4)
New England -2 - LOSS
Detroit +8.5 - WIN
Atlanta -0.5 - WIN
Baltimore +8.5 - WIN
Houston pk - LOSS
Buffalo -1.5 - WIN
Oakland +8.5 - WIN
Indianapolis +9.5 - LOSS
Seattle +8.5 - WIN
Dallas pk - WIN
New Orleans +9 - LOSS
LA Chargers +9 - WIN

Week 2 (10-2)
Arizona -0.5 - WIN
Tampa Bay -1 - WIN
