College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Montana Grizzlies at Nevada Wolf Pack

03.16.2016     09:08 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Montana at Nevada -3.5 O/U 138.5
Recommendation: Nevada


Ultra-tough spot for Montana tonight as it travels right back to Reno after losing in heartbreaking fashion to Weber State in the Big Sky Tournament finals. Following the loss, the team was split on whether or not they even wanted to play in a postseason tournament. In the end, they decided to give it a go but it's clear the sting of not making the NCAA Tournament hit this team hard. Now they must go back on the road to uneventful Reno, Nevada and try to get up for the meaningless CBI Tournament. Supporting teams in these secondary tournaments with first-year head coaches isn't a bad profile. Eric Musselman took over a nine-win team and got them to 19-13 and a winning record inside the Mountain West. The Wolf Pack are still without a healthy Marqueze Coleman who was a non-factor in the MWC Tournament. And they've had a difficult time winning by margin this season with three overtime victories and five others by three or less. Nine times out of ten I believe all of the distractions and situationals get tossed out once the whistle blows, but there's a strong potential for a no-show from the road Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns

Minnesota at Phoenix pk O/U 221.5
Recommendation: Over


Most recent games played by each of these young teams showcased the positive strides that they are making. For Minnesota it was an improbable 99-96 road win over Oklahoma City as +12 point underdogs which gives them a three spread covers in their last four games. In the Suns case, it was a 123-116 loss at Golden State in a game where Phoenix held a 4Q lead as +19 point underdogs. That was the second game since a 21 game injury absence for Suns starting PG Brandon Knight and he had 30 points including seven three pointers. Even though Knight admitted after the game that he’s not there yet, his return makes Phoenix noticeably different offensively. With Knight boosting the perimeter offense and HC Earl Watson’s commitment to feeding the ball inside to 7-1 PF Alex Len (10-of-18, 26 points vs GS), Phoenix is developing a balanced half court attack to go along with their up tempo style. The bench has been strengthened by Knight’s return as well. Meanwhile, Minnesota is much further along with their offensive development as the duo of rookie C Karl Anthony Towns and SF Andrew Wiggins Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How to beat your NCAA Tournament office pool

03.14.2016     10:27 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I could go off on the NCAA Tournament committee for screwing the mid-majors again, something that’s becoming an annual tradition.  But complaining about the committee is akin to complaining about the weather – everybody does it, but it doesn’t help one iota.  Instead, in this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’m going to focus on the casual fan and strategies for winning office pool bracket contests.

It’s bracket time, the annual intrusion every March of the general public into our college basketball sportsbetting world.  And when it comes to filling out brackets, there aren’t many bigger experts than Ed Feng from thepowerrank.com, who I had the chance to interview last week.

Feng is an interesting guy, earning his PhD from Stanford – he’s no dummy.  He’s written for Grantland , Deadspin and Bleacher Report, just to name a few of the sites he’s been affiliated with.  Last year, advanced analytics website FiveThirtyEight.com conducted a study that found Feng’s predictions for the 2015 NCAA Tournament to be the most accurate among their forecasts, culminating in Duke’s Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Miami Marlins

Miami Marlins
2015 W-L:
  71-91
2015 O/U: 77-77-8
2015 Profits:  -14.1 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  78.5
2016 NL East Odds (Westgate):  10/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Jose Fernandez, Wei-Yin Chen, Tom Koehler, Jarred Cosart, Adam Conley
Key Departures: Casey McGehee, Henderson Alvarez, Donovan Solano
Key Additions: Chris Johnson, Wei-Yin Chen

Handicapper's Take: "Miami returns a lot of last year's group but with three major differences from that should help its cause. First, the Marlins will begin this year with a healthy Jose Fernandez who missed the first three months last year. Second, the once less than ideal managerial situation has been solved with the hiring of Don Mattingly. And third, Giancarlo Stanton is back to full health after a hand injury sidelined him for the final 88 games of last season. 

Miami has lowered the height of the fences all the way around Read more

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

03.11.2016     11:08 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Notre Dame vs. North Carolina -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Over


Roy Williams always wants his team to play fast, and in neutral court settings, Williams has been an Over machine: 20-7 to the Over in the Tar Heels last 27 neutral site games.  North Carolina really pushed the pace yesterday against Pitt, hanging 88 points on the generally slower paced Panthers.  Perhaps most importantly, North Carolina’s struggling three point shooters – Marcus Paige and Joel Berry – both hit multiple three pointers, enjoying the friendly Verizon Center court.

When these two teams played in the ACC Tournament Championship Game last year, we saw a truly wild shootout, with the Irish winning 90-82.  The old joke about Roy Williams having a tee time set for the Saturday of the ACC tournament – a coach who historically has placed much more importance on the Big Dance than the conference tourney – simply isn’t the case this year.  North Carolina has something to prove and something to gain in this year’s tourney; not a throwaway game for the Tar Heels by any stretch of the imagination this time Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Atlanta Braves

Atlanta Braves
2015 W-L:
  67-95
2015 O/U: 81-72-9
2015 Profits:  -16.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  67.5
2016 NL East Odds (Westgate):  80/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Julio Teheran, Matt Wisler, Manny Banuelos,  Bud Norris,  Michael Foltynewicz
Key Departures:  Shelby Miller, Andrelton Simmons, Cameron Maybin, Christian Bethancourt
Key Additions:  Kelly Johnson, Alexi Ogando, Bud Norris, Emilo Bonifacio, Erick Aybar

Handicapper’s Take: "Year one of the Braves’ rebuilding process produced a 67-95 record which in betting terms translated into -16.4 units -- the seventh worst team in the league to back. Among Atlanta’s shortcomings was an offense that finished last in MLB in OPS, SLG, HRs, RBI and runs scored. The bullpen had the second worst ERA at 4.69 and only converted 62.8% of save opportunities. Starting pitching was not exempt either as that group ranked 26th in Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Houston Astros

Houston Astros
2015 W-L:
 86-76 
2015 O/U: 73-80-9 
2015 Profits: -2.7 Units
2016 O/U Wins: 87 
2016 AL West Odds: +160
Projected Starting Rotation: Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh, Mike Fiers, Scott Feldman, Doug Fister
Key Departures:  Jed Lowrie, Scott Kazmir, Oliver Perez, Chad Qualls, Chris Carter
Key Additions: Ken Giles, Doug Fister

Handicapper's Take: "The Astros came one win away from winning a playoff series last year.  That breakout campaign came on the heels of a major, long term rebuilding project.  Houston won only 70 games in 2014, on the heels of 51, 55 and 56 win seasons.

When a team that had won 70 games or less for four straight years suddenly morphs into a legit World Series contender, in theory, bettors are supposed to be able to make some serious money with that team.  But that wasn’t the case last year with the Astros Read more

2015 W-L:
  79-83
2015 O/U:  80-74-8
2015 Profits:  +1.5 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  81.5
2016 NL West Odds (Westgate):  7/1
Projected Starting Rotation:  Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller, Patrick Corbin, Rubby De La Rosa, Robbie Ray
Key Departures:  Jeremy Hellickson,  Ender Inciarte
Key Additions: Zack Greinke, Shelby Miller, Jean Segura, Tyler Clippard

Handicapper’s Take: “Newly acquired Zack Greinke is coming off arguably his best season (1.66 ERA) though did throw a career-high 236 innings including two starts in the playoffs. At 32 years old and off of two seasons of nearly 450 innings, he moves over to more hitter friendly Chase Field and goes from throwing to Yasmani Grandal (one of MLB's best pitch framers ) to Welington Castillo (one of the worst ). That said, Greinke, Shelby Miller and a healthy Patrick Corbin offer one of the better 1-2-3 punches in the Read more
