NBA Gambling Alert: Golden State's Curry still questionable for Game 2

04.18.2016     08:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Still no word on Stephen Curry's (ankle) official status for tonight's Game 2 matchup vs. Houston. Despite this, the Warriors have taken money (-12.5 to -13.5) but the total was bet down from 221.5 to 218.

Here's Curry's quote from Saturday:


“Right now I don't see a scenario where I'll be out,” said Curry, who turned his right ankle in the second quarter of a Game 1 win over the Rockets (104-78) at Oracle Arena on Saturday. “Obviously, if it's not right and at risk of further injury or whatnot, that's the only thing that I think we have to worry about. Pain tolerance and all that stuff, I kind of know what I can deal with on the court, but you don't want anything more serious to happen favoring an ankle or whatnot. So that's what we'll pay attention to the next few days.”

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks

Boston +5.5 at Atlanta O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Boston


Something pretty remarkable happened on Wednesday Night, in Game 82 of the regular season.  It got overshadowed by Kobe Bryant’s 60-point outing in his final career game, leading the Lakers to a last minute come-from-behind win over Utah.  It got overshadowed by the Warriors winning #73, finishing with the best regular season record in NBA history.  But make no mistake about it – it was meaningful!

The Boston Celtics defense stunk for a good portion of the last two months.  Since the All Star Break, Boston’s D has gone from allowing 99.6 points per 100 possessions up to 104.7 pp/100.  Over their previous eight games, they ranked #19 in the NBA, allowing more than 106 pp/100.  In the first half of Game #82 against Miami, the Celtics defense got lit up once again.  Miami led 62-38 at halftime, on their way to an easy blowout win over Boston.

But something funny happened on the way to that easy win – the Celtics started playing defense at a level we haven’t seen from them for months.  The Heat hit their first Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies

San Francisco (Peavy) -110 at Colorado (Lyles) O/U 11.5
Recommendation: Over


The San Francisco Giants (6-2) have jumped out to an early lead in the National League West thanks to a red hot .860 team OPS. They’ll be be facing another offensive minded team in the Colorado Rockies tonight who possess the second highest team OPS in the National League. Tonight’s starting pitchers suggests the offensive production should continue. Jake Peavy has long been past his prime and looked shaky in his first start with 10 hits and 4 earned runs allowed. He also has not fared well in this venue with an opponent's’ team OPS of .860 and dismal 1.61 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 appearances. A few reports coming out of spring had Jordan Lyles pegged as a sleeper heading into the campaign but he got knocked around a bit in his first outing (3.1 IP, 5 ERs). And despite his ground ball tendencies, he’s yet to figure out Coors Field with a 5.16 lifetime ERA in nearly 100 innings of work. The potential is there for multiple big innings as we look to play the over.

NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview: New York Rangers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

New York Rangers (M3) vs. Pittsburgh Penguins (M2)
Series Price: Pittsburgh -175/New York +155
Game 1 Price: Pittsburgh -145 O/U 5


The injury list is long for both squads entering this series. The New York Rangers have several key players listed as questionable including Eric Staal, Mats Zuccarello, Dan Girardi and captain Ryan McDonagh. None of them are a sure thing to be in the lineup for Game 1 tonight. The Pittsburgh Penguins also have multiple players listed as questionable too including both of their goalies Marc-Andre Fleury and Matthew Murray. It appears Fleury (concussion) has been upgraded to probable.

Pittsburgh closed the regular season as the hottest team in the NHL going 14-2 in its last 16 games. The run was impressive considering they were without Evgeni Malkin who will remain out for the beginning of the postseason. The Penguins put together a strong second line with Nick Bonino, Phil Kessel and Carl Hagelin late in the season. It was a nice compliment to the first-line trio of Sidney Crosby, Patric Hornqvist and Chris Kunitz.

New York knocked off Pittsburgh in five games in the first round of the playoffs Read more

NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Preview: New York Islanders vs. Florida Panthers

New York Islanders (WC) vs. Florida Panthers (A1)
Series Price: Florida -150/New York +130
Game 1 Price: Florida -140 O/U 5
Series Recommendation: Florida


The Florida Panthers were an afterthought heading into the season but have been one of the biggest surprise stories in the NHL as they captured the Atlantic Division title and home ice advantage the first two rounds. Florida has a nice mixture of veterans and future stars: Jaromir Jagr turned back the clock to have a phenomenal season with a team-leading 66 points in 79 games and Aleksander Barkov, Jonathan Huberdeau, Reilly Smith and Nick Bjugstad are some of the team’s very impressive young talent. The Panthers will miss the services of Vincent Trocheck who suffered a season ending ankle injury last month. The team however showed no drop in performance in his absence as they finished the regular season 7-2.

The New York Islanders are a bit banged up entering the playoffs with question marks everywhere. Top goalie Jaroslav Halak is still out; one of their best defensemen, Travis Hamonic, has a lower body injury and is questionable for the start of this series; and Anders Read more

NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Pick: San Jose Sharks vs. Los Angeles Kings

Los Angeles vs. San Jose
Series Recommendation: San Jose +130


Two hated Pacific Division rivals clash in this first series. Los Angeles and San Jose faced one another two postseasons ago with the Sharks suffering a historic collapse after taking a 3-0 series lead. The Kings won four straight en route to their second Stanley Cup in three years. That series loss was the catalyst for San Jose to fire coach Todd McLellan and infuse youth within lockerroom. Now this team is hungry and ready to make another run into the playoffs after a one-year rebuild. The Kings also look primed and ready to make a deep postseason push after missing out on the playoffs last year. They became the first team since the 2007-08 Carolina Hurricanes to miss the postseason a year removed from winning the Stanley Cup.

Both of these teams are built in similar fashion with big, strong forwards up front who have the skills to score but also the toughness to bang bodies along the boards. They each have very dangerous power play attacks and neither club takes a ton of dumb penalties. However, given the nature and history of this rivalry, we will definitely see our fair share Read more

NBA Handicapping: Dallas earns playoff berth, Houston knocking on the door

04.12.2016     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NBA regular season concludes on Wednesday. A few things were determined last night like Cleveland notching the top seed in the Eastern Conference and thus Toronto now locked into the second seed. The spots for the third through sixth seeds are still TBD. Indiana is in position for the seventh seed while Detroit looks likely it will be facing the Cavs in the first round.

The top four seeds in the Western Conference have been filled: Golden State, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles Clippers. The remainder of the West is hazy. Portland, Memphis, and Dallas are in but could finish a number of ways. And with Utah losing to the Mavs, Houston now has the inside track on the eighth seed -- assuming the Rockets can beat Sacramento's corpse on Wednesday. If they lose and Utah beats the Lakers, the Jazz get in.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns

Sacramento +6 at Phoenix O/U 218.5
Recommendation: Sacramento


Pair of non-playoff teams with different perceptions on how they’re approaching these meaningless final games. Phoenix is a team people see as still giving effort while Sacramento is a disgruntled group that can’t wait for the season to end. To some extent, that’s why Phoenix is favored by any amount in this matchup and the -6 that we see right now has the absence of Kings top player DeMarcus Cousins tacked on to it. The Suns have a key injury of their own as Archie Goodwin who has played very well down the stretch is expected to miss tonight’s game. That leaves Phoenix with just one PG (Ronnie Price) and puts the Suns' backcourt at a distinct disadvantage in this game. Rajon Rondo should play tonight but even if he doesn’t, the combination of Darren Collison (27 pts yesterday), Seth Curry (averagining 17.0 pts L5G) plus shooting guards James Anderson and Ben McLemore gives Sacramento four guards who are playing hard and will own talent and depth advantages tonight. Phoenix isn’t significantly better than Sacramento at the C position even with Cousins on Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Analyzing the early season MLB betting markets

04.11.2016     10:17 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Matt Harvey lost again on Sunday, with the Mets priced as high as -280 here in Las Vegas.  Chris Archer leads the majors in strikeouts, while King Felix ranks second as I write this early Monday morning. Their two teams -- Tampa and Seattle -- teams are a combined 0-4 in the four starts from those two aces.   I closed out last week writing about how betting on aces – the guys that advanced metrics really, truly love – has evolved into a negative expectation wager over the last few years.  The quants have emerged as the dominating force in the MLB betting marketplace and there’s no way that I’ve uncovered to beat them at their own game.

So, I’ve been focusing on the opening week of the MLB season with an anti-quant mentality, looking to take advantage of what the betting markets are undervaluing, not overvaluing.  If the markets are too tilted towards starting pitching, that leaves three areas that aren’t appropriately priced, in my opinion – lineups, bullpens and streaks. 

There’s already early season action for streak bettors, with the Orioles winning while the Twins and Braves keep Read more

The eight spots in the Eastern Conference are secure though with two games remaining, a lot can happen in terms of seeding. The top four seeds in the Western Conference are set: Golden State, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, and the Los Angeles Clippers. Portland and Memphis are also in while Dallas, Utah, and Houston are still fighting for the final two spots. Here's a link to a more detailed breakdown of all of the scenarios. In the end, tonight's Dallas-Utah game is pretty important.
