Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Baltimore Orioles

03.13.2015     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Off 96 wins and a trip the ALCS, the Baltimore Orioles remain virtually the same team heading into 2015. That may or may not be a good thing with terms like "overachieve" and "regression" being commonly used to describe 2015's projections.

Baltimore Orioles
2014 W-L:
96-66
2014 O/U: 69-89-4
2014 Profits: +34.8
2015 O/U Wins: 82.5
2015 AL East Odds: +370
Projected Starting Rotation: Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris, Miguel Gonzalez, Kevin Gausman
Key Departures: Nelson Cruz, Nick Markakis
Key Additions: Travis Snider

Handicapper's Take: "The Baltimore Orioles have put in some great years under skipper Buck Showalter but can they sustain the seemingly unsustainable level they’ve been playing at?  The major question mark for this team will be their starting pitching. Chris Tillman, Wei-Yin Chen, Bud Norris, Miguez Gonzalez and Ubaldo Jimenez are all average to slightly Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Cleveland Indians

03.11.2015     02:27 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

The Cleveland Indians enter the season as one of three co-betting favorites in a wide open AL Central.  

Cleveland Indians
2014 W-L:
85-77
2014 O/U: 76-83-3
2014 Profits: +1.3
2015 O/U Wins: 82.5
2015 AL Central Odds: +210
Projected Starting Rotation: Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco, Danny Salazar, Trevor Bauer, TJ House
Key Departures: None
Key Additions: Brandon Moss

Handicapper's Take - "The Indians were the only team in this division outside of KC to deliver a profit for their supporters last year, although returning a single unit of profit over a 162 game season isn’t particularly impressive.  And the Indians are already suffering some starting pitching woes in spring training, with offseason acquisition Gavin Floyd and back of the rotation overachiever Josh Tomlin both battling early injuries.  For a pitching staff that lacks much upside behind Corey Kluber, that’s never a good sign.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Arizona Diamondbacks

03.11.2015     02:09 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Kirk Gibson may be gone but the Arizona Diamondbacks remain an organization stuck in the mud. Their shortcomings though won't fool many bettors after dropping north of -31 units last season.

Arizona Diamondbacks
2014 W-L:
64-98
2014 O/U: 74-82-6
2014 Profits: -31.6
2015 O/U Wins: 72.5
2015 NL West Odds: +4250
Projected Starting Rotation: Josh Collmenter, Jeremy Hellickson, Chase Anderson, Rubby De La Rosa, Allen Webster
Key Departures: Miguel Montero
Key Additions: Jeremy Hellickson

Handicapper’s Take: “Arizona has nowhere to go but up following a dismal 64-98 record in 2014. New manager Chip Hale takes over from the often times bewildered and overwhelmed Kirk Gibson. The organization is still behind the times with a lot of their decision making on and off the field and they’re currently paying dearly for it. Offensively they possess a number of power bats from the right side with Paul Goldschmidt, Mark Trumbo and Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Chicago White Sox

03.11.2015     08:12 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

After back-to-back losing seasons, the Chicago White Sox made a number of offseason acquisitions that put them in contention in an up-for-grabs AL Central.

Chicago White Sox
2014 W-L:
73-89
2014 O/U: 80-75-7
2014 Profits: -1.5
2015 O/U Wins: 81.5
2015 AL Cenral Odds: +240
Projected Starting Rotation: Chris Sale, Jeff Samardzija, Jose Quintana, John Danks, Hector Noesi
Key Departures: None
Key Additions: Melky Cabrera, Emilio Bonifacio, David Robertson, Jeff Samardzija, Adam LaRoche

Handicapper's Take: "The White Sox have lost 188 games over the past two seasons, disappointing both fans and backers  There’s at least modest upside with the South Siders heading into 2015 after management wrote a bunch of fat checks in the offseason to shore up their bullpen with David Robertson, Zack Duke and Dan Jennings, along with acquiring starter Jeff Samardzjia and veteran hitters Adam LaRoche and Melky Cabrera.  None of Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Miami Marlins

03.10.2015     08:45 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

The Washington Nationals are heavy favorites to with the NL East but the Miami Marlins are looking to win now and have the talent to contend for a Wild Card berth.

Miami Marlins
2014 W-L:
77-85
2014 O/U: 83-68-11
2014 Profits: -2.0
2015 O/U Wins: 81.5
2015 NL East Odds: +600
Projected Starting Rotation: Mat Latos, Henderson Alvarez, Jarred Cosart, Dan Haren, Tom Koehler
Key Departures: Casey McGehee, Nathan Eovaldi
Key Additions: Mat Latos, Martin Prado, Dee Gordon, Jarred Cosart

Handicapper’s Take: “Differing opinions on this squad amongst those who cover MLB as Miami appear to be in “all in” mode this season. The huge contract that locked up the game’s top power hitter Giancarlo Stanton along with the offseason moves which brought in 2B Dee Gordon, 1B Mike Morse, 3B Martin Prado, and RH starter Mat Latos, have raised the expectations for this club. There is now a legitimate blend of speed, power and Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Oakland A's

03.10.2015     08:31 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

It wouldn't be an Oakland A's offseason with a ton of personnel changes. But unlike last season, expectations are modest with this squad projected to be a .500 squad.

Oakland A's
2014 W-L:
88-74
2014 O/U: 77-76-9
2014 Profits: -16.1
2015 O/U Wins: 81.5
2015 AL West Odds: +400
Projected Starting Rotation: Sonny Gray, Scott Kazmir, Jesse Hahn, Drew Pomeranz, Kendall Graveman (Jarrod Parker, AJ Griffin injured but projected to return at some point)
Key Departures: Josh Donaldson, Jeff Samardzija
Key Additions: Tyler Clippard, Ben Zobrist, Billy Butler, Brett Lawrie

Handicapper's Take: "2014 was a tale of two seasons would be an understatement for what actually transpired, while their season also pointed to the randomness of baseball.  The 2014 betting numbers are bizarre for the A’s.  They were a team that was expected to win about 88 games at the high end based on their season over/under total.  Well, they Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Boston Red Sox

03.09.2015     01:59 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

No shock to see the Boston Red Sox attempt to reload following last season's disaster. In the ultra-competitive AL East, a "worst to first" scenario, while plausible, is far from a lock despite some of the numbers being attached to this squad in the preseaon betting markets.

Boston Red Sox
2014 W-L:
71-91
2014 O/U: 71-86-5
2014 Profits: -26.5
2015 O/U Wins: 85.5
2015 AL East Odds: +195
Projected Starting Rotation: Clay Buchholz, Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Joe Kelly, Justin Masterson
Key Departures: Yoenis Cespedes, David Ross
Key Additions: Pablo Sandoval, Hanley Ramirez, Rick Porcello

Handicapper's Take: "The Boston Red Sox, which finished a division worst 71-91 in 2014 (25 games back of the Baltimore Orioles) are the odds on favorite to win the division!  One may look at this team on paper and immediately give them the title of “team to beat”, but I’m not so quick to back a team with this many Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Atlanta Braves

03.09.2015     01:44 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

It’s been a long time since the Atlanta Braves weren’t at least in the conversation of NL East contenders but various offseason moves suggest 2015 to be that of rebuilding.

Atlanta Braves
2014 W-L:
79-83
2014 O/U: 63-86-13
2014 Profits: -18.0
2015 O/U Wins: 73.5
2015 NL East Odds: +3300
Projected Starting Rotation: Julio Teheran, Mike Minor, Shelby Miller, Alex Wood, Michael Foltynewicz
Key Departures: Evan Gattis, Justin Upton, David Carpenter
Key Additions: Jason Grilli, Nick Markakis

Handicapper’s Take: “It is very strange to see the Braves head into the season as a team in transition but that’s exactly what they are in 2015. The offseason overhaul in the outfield was all inclusive as all three positions will have a new starter. Gone is last season’s power laden but strikeout heavy group of Justin Upton, B.J. Upton, Evan Gattis, and Jason Heyward and in are ex-Orioles RF Nick Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: St. Louis Cardinals

03.09.2015     06:40 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Nothing much new in St. Louis as this veteran ballclub is in position to make a run at a fifth straight postseason appearance. But their core group is aging and recent history and current profile suggest there won’t be much betting value.

St. Louis Cardinals
2014 W-L:
90-72
2014 O/U: 73-82-7
2014 Profits: +2.0
2015 O/U Wins: 87.5
2015 NL Central Odds: +120
Projected Starting Rotation: Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha, Lance Lynn, John Lackey, Carlos Martinez
Key Departures: Pat Neshek, Justin Masterson, Shelby Miller
Key Additions: Jason Heyward, Jordan Walden

Handicapper's Take: "Virtually all of last season's 90-win squad is back and they added Jason Heyward who is still only 25 years old. The starting rotation is scary good if it can stay healthy; particularly Adam Wainwright (33 years old) who is almost assuredly due for a decline after tossing well over 500 IP the last two seasons. Expectations are once again there Read more
