Paddy Power says World Cup handle will reach $160 million

05.14.2014     01:39 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
It's been a rough 2014 for Irish sportsbook Paddy Power following two horrifically bad weeks (Premier League favorites crushed) and CEO Patrick Kennedy’s announcement that he will step down at the end of the year. As a result, the company's stock fell 4%. But they are expecting to rebound in a big way thanks to the upcoming World Cup.

“We turned over approximately €80 million in 2010 on the World Cup and we would expect that to be at around €160 million this year,” he said.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Miami Marlins at Los Angeles Dodgers

Miami (DeSclafani) at LA Dodgers (Maholm) -140 O/U 8
Recommendation: Over

Very quietly, way underneath the radar, the Miami Marlins have become one of the strongest ‘Over’ teams in baseball.  Miami has cashed five straight Over tickets on their West Coast road trip; 11-3-1 to the Over in their last 15 ballgames. 

The reason behind all of these Overs is simple to understand.  First, Miami’s totals are always low, based on their relatively weak lineup and relatively strong starting pitching.  Secondly, that weak lineup has been able to scratch out runs. And third, Miami’s bullpen has been spotty at best; lousy at worst, blowing five save chances and taking nine losses already this year while ranked #20 out of 30 MLB teams in bullpen ERA.

The Dodgers bullpen is every bit as spotty as the Marlins pen, suffering 11 bullpen losses already this year.  But LA’s lineup has finally started to hit, breaking out with 23 runs Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

Philadelphia (Hamels) at NY Mets (Niese) -125 O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Over

The Philadelphia Phillies will send Cole Hamels to the mound for today’s afternoon start against the New York Mets. The left-hander missed the bulk of April while nursing a strained elbow. In his first start against the Dodgers he looked in midseason form allowing just two runs in six innings. However in his two most recent starts the wheels have fallen off. One of those starts was against the Mets where he was hammered for six runs in 4.2 innings of work and also managed to walk an uncharacteristically high five batter. Meanwhile, the Mets will have their own southpaw on the hill in Jon Niese. The numbers look brilliant for Niese with a 1.82 ERA but the time to sell has arrived. Niese has dealt with shoulder issues in the past and took a cortisone shot for his ailing limb during in spring training. His velocity has dipped, but the numbers have largely stayed strong. However, in visually watching Niese Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Indians at Tampa Bay Rays

Cleveland (Kluber) +100 at Tampa Bay (Odorizzi) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Cleveland

I'll take the better starting pitcher in this matchup with Cleveland's Corey Kluber taking on Tampa Bay's Jake Odorizzi. Kluber is quietly developing into a top-of-the-rotation American League arm with the ability to miss bats and get groundballs. Since the start of 2013, Kluber's xFIP ranks sixth among qualified AL starting pitchers at 3.10. I was a fan of Odorizzi to start the season but have since cooled my stance after watching a few of his starts. Unlike Kluber, Odorizzi doesn't have swing and miss stuff and thus far he's been an extreme fly ball pitcher. A telltale sign these struggles could continue is that teams are 29-for-61, .475 the second and third time through the order. Also note that Odorizzi hasn't lasted past five innings since his first start of the year; putting extra pressure on a very questionable Rays' bullpen. Both offenses have scuffled of late which makes the starting pitching Read more

MLB Gambling News: Oddsmakers hang first 5.5 of the season

05.08.2014     01:35 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Taking a look ahead to tomorrow’s MLB card we see our first total of 5.5 on the year with Miami’s Jose Fernandez taking on San Diego’s Tyson Ross in Petco. Certainly a pitching matchup and location conducive for a low scoring game though the Marlins have scored the second-most runs in the National League (157) behind Colorado (215). A database search showed that since 2010, games totaled 5.5 are 12-12 over/under – half of those involved Clayton Kershaw.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Anaheim Ducks at Los Angeles Kings

Anaheim at Los Angeles -140 O/U 5
Recommendation: Los Angeles

The Anaheim Ducks played fairly well in Games 1 and 2 of this series yet they trail the Los Angeles Kings 2-0 heading into the Staples Center in for tonight’s Game 3. Anaheim held the lead for most of Game 1 but Marian Gaborik scored the tying goal with several seconds left in the third period to force OT where eventually the Kings won. In Game 2, Anaheim poured on the pressure and outshot the Kings 37-17 but could not score the timely goal required to tie the game in the third and LA was able to pull away 3-1. Anaheim didn’t play very well on the road in its first round series against Dallas going 1-2 – the lone win was fortunate as the Stars coughed up a late 4-2 lead with less than two minutes left. Los Angeles is a veteran team with Stanley Cup winning experience and I trust them to step on the throat of the opposition. The Kings jumped out to four straight 3-0 series leads in the 2012 Playoffs. They did the same in the first round last year against St. Louis. LA is the better of these two teams and it has shown in the fact they’ve won two games without playing Read more

MLB Handicapping: Chicago Cubs front office irked by Samardzija's pitch count

05.08.2014     09:37 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Already frustrated after posting a 1.62 ERA with no wins to show for it, Chicago's Jeff Samardzija must now deal with the front office poking its nose around his pitch counts. It's no secret that the Cubs are looking to move Samardzija before the trade deadline but in order to do that, he has to remain healthy. Samardzija's threw 126 pitches in a complete game loss to the White Sox last time out. Prior to that, he hadn't topped 113 pitches. Chicago is 1-6 in Samardzija's starts this season. He's projected to throw on five days rest in Atlanta.

“You don’t like to see a guy get up that high,” Hoyer said. “That said, I think pitch count in general is a number, and we focus a lot on pitch stress.”

“I am pretty sure the only ones that are concerned are me, (pitching coach Chris) Bosio and (manager) Rick (Renteria),” Samardzija said. “I thought we were on the same page as to what happened. We knew where we were at and it felt great. Those three people are the only ones that should be Read more

Ben Affleck pinched for card counting in Vegas

05.05.2014     11:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Ben Affleck was told his card counting skills were "too obvious" by Las Vegas' Hard Rock Casino and thus barred from the blackjack tables. If only Affleck could have put his alleged smarts to use during the development of the mind-numbingly awful Runner, Runner.

“You’re too good at the game,” Hard Rock security managers are said to have told him as they escorted the actor from the blackjack tables and found him and his wife, Jennifer Garner, the actress, a taxi back to their hotel.

“While playing at a table, Ben was asked repeatedly to stop card counting. However, he would not stop. The casino staff told Ben that he was being too obvious.”

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Los Angeles Dodgers at Washington Nationals

LA Dodgers (Greinke) -110 at Washington (Zimmermann) O/U 7
Recommendation: Los Angeles

Not a lot went right offensively for Washington in their weekend series at Philadelphia. They could only muster 11 hits (8 singles) and three runs (2 earned) in 20.1 innings against Phillies starting pitchers. It doesn’t appear things will get any easier tonight versus Zack Greinke who has posted stellar numbers across the board through six starts this season. Overall, Greinke is 5-0 with one no-decision in his 35.1 IP which includes a 2.04 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. The RH has a near 8 to 1 K:BB ratio (46 K’s, 8 BB’s) and on the road he’s 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA. Greinke controlled the Nationals last season allowing just 2 ER in 11.2 IP and Washington did not have the injury problems then that they have now. The hosts’ lineup continues to be without their top production hitters Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman and they may again have to go without offensive minded catcher Wilson Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: A look ahead to the NBA Conference Semifinals

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
The first round of the NBA Playoffs is in the books; a near perfect storm for underdog bettors.  Dogs emerged victorious in three series: Portland over Houston, Washington over Chicago and Brooklyn over Toronto.  The underdog – Dallas in every game – went 6-1 ATS in the Spurs – Mavs series.  Other series losers like Atlanta, Memphis and Golden State proved to be feistier than expected.  Put it all together and we saw dogs go 32-15-3 ATS for the full 50 games played in the first round.

Should we expect Round 2 to follow the same path?  All four series certainly look competitive on paper, although top seeds Miami and San Antonio are both significant favorites to knock off Brooklyn and Portland respectively.  The series prices for Washington – Indiana and LA Clippers – Oklahoma City are certainly indicative of tight battles to come.  In this week’s Vegas Wiseguy Report I’ll examine all four of these second round series, looking for potential matchup edges that could offer ATS value as the series progress.

Indiana was lucky to survive their first round test against Atlanta.  The Hawks Read more
