NHL Handicapper Stanley Cup Playoffs Free Betting Pick: St. Louis Blues vs. Minnesota Wild

St. Louis Blues vs. Minnesota Wild
Series Recommendation: St. Louis +130

The Minnesota Wild battle the St. Louis Blues in the opening round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs starting Wednesday. These two clubs hooked up back in 2014 with the Wild taking the series in six games under head coach Mike Yeo who is now the bench boss for the Blues.

St. Louis knew they would have to make some changes after losing in the Western Conference finals last May. They brought in Yeo to be the associate coach-in-waiting as longtime leader Ken Hitchcock was planning to call it a career after this season. When the Blues lost 7 of 11 games heading into the All-Star break and suffered a bad loss in their first contest back, management went ahead and fired Hitchcock and promoted Yeo on February 1. This move paid off quickly as St. Louis won 22 of its final 32 games to reach 99 points and clinch a sixth consecutive playoff berth. Yeo's mantra has always been defense and that was a weakness for the Blues prior to his promotion. Since Yeo took over, St. Louis has improved in all areas of backchecking and goaltending with a league-best 1.87 GAA, .936 save Read more

MLB Handicapping: Los Angeles Angels hope to keep Richards healthy

04.05.2017     09:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After opting for alternative treatments rather than Tommy John surgery, Los Angeles' Garrett Richards makes his return to the hill tonight in Oakland. Prior to his elbow injury, Richards flashed no. 1 starter stuff and stats (3.18 ERA 2014-15 combined). The Angels are taking an ultra-cautious approach in terms of extended rest in between starts and Richards even admitted that he plans on taking a restrained and more ecomonical approach. He's currently a -115 road favorite.


If I can throw at 85 percent, I’m able to repeat my mechanics better,” he said. “I’m able to keep everything moving downhill toward the catcher. Because I throw across my body, direction is a big thing for me. If I can eliminate a little bit of effort and keep everything moving in a straight line, it’s going to help me.”

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Wild at Nashville Predators

Minnesota at Nashville -125 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Nashville

Two Central Division foes face-off for a Saturday matinee as the Nashville Predators host the Minnesota Wild in a potential first round playoff preview. The Wild had a five-point lead in the Central Division back on February 28 before losing 12 of their last 16 games. It dropped them down to second place as they now trail Chicago by (7-8-9) points entering this contest. A facial injury to winger Zach Parise will sideline him for this game. Parise has scored 17 goals and 20 assists on the year and is one of the main leaders for this Minnesota club. Nashville is looking to get out of the Wild Card range and grab the third spot in the Central which would pit them in a match-up against the Wild. The Preds have won seven of their last 10 games and have earned at least a point in six of the last 10 meetings versus Minnesota. Nashville has played division opponents tough this year, with a 12-7 record as a favorite vs. Central foes. Forward Filip Forsberg leads the club with 30 goals; his third consecutive season with 25 or more goals with the Predators. This game is big for Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks Season Over/Under Wins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona Diamondbacks Season Over/Under Wins 77.5 (5Dimes)
Recommendation: Over

Heading into last season, the Arizona Diamondbacks had to look of a team ready to contend in the National League West. Following 2015's somewhat promising 79-win campaign, they went for it by bringing in a host of big name free agents -- Zack Greinke, Tyler Clippard, Shelby Miller, and Jean Segura. Expectations were fairly high with their season over/under wins lined at 81.5. The end result though was a disaster. Greinke regressed in a big way. Clippard and Miller underachieved. AJ Pollock played in only 12 games. The defense was awful. And by July it was clear the season was a wash.

This year, expectations are a bit more moderate. For starters, the front office -- which was one of the worst in MLB -- was gutted. Getting rid of GM Dave Stewart was arguably the best offseason decision the organization made. The new regime has already placed an emphasis on analytics, something Stewart had no clue about. And while this isn't going to be a quick fix situation, there are enough pieces already in place for this team to be competitive.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets at Toronto Raptors

Charlotte at Toronto -6 O/U 202
Recommendation: Toronto

My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against the Hornets last night. There’s little reason to think that Charlotte will be significantly more competitive as they step up in class against a focused foe on the second night of back-to-backs tonight. Let me start with an excerpt from yesterday’s write-up, with the numbers edited slightly to reflect current realities:

“Charlotte was a playoff team last year, finishing with 48 wins and the #6 seed. The markets still remember and respect that team, in some ways overshadowing the 33-41 squad from this year in the betting world. The Hornets did their best to blow a 25 point second half lead against a Suns team playing on the second night of back-2-backs in their last game, on the heels of a defensive no-show against the Cavs in their previous contest. And the betting markets are offering us legitimate value with wiseguy steam showing for Charlotte in early betting action today.”

There’s been steam on Charlotte again today, pushing the line down to -5.5 as I write this Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: UCLA Bruins vs. Kentucky Wildcats

UCLA -1 vs. Kentucky O/U 165.5
Recommendation: Under

When Kentucky and UCLA met in non-conference play back in December, the game was an instant classic; a 97-92 Bruins victory in a high octane shootout. Both teams played fast – a frenetic tempo from a pair of teams that were struggling mightily on defense at the time. And both teams shot the ball well, combining for 47% shooting from the floor, including 18 made three-pointers. No surprise, then, that the rematch is the single highest totaled game in the NCAA Tournament so far.
But there’s little reason to expect the high stakes rematch to be played in similar fashion. That was then. This is now.

John Calipari spent the back half of the season coaching up the Kentucky defense. It’s worked! The lengthy, athletic Wildcats are wreaking havoc on the defensive end of the court in recent weeks. Only one of their last nine opponents has scored more than 70 points against them, with Kentucky holding foes under 40% from the floor during that span. No surprise, then, that the Wildcats are 8-1 to the Under in those last nine ballgames, including a snail’s Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Princeton Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Princeton vs. Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Notre Dame


Pointspreads tend to be very accurate by this time of the year.  Both the oddsmakers and the broader betting markets have a full seasons worth of data to punch into their computers.  The end result is that the numbers -- both sides and total -- are consistently right where they are supposed to be.

So when bettors are looking for an edge at this time of the year, they’re going to have to dig for information that is not factored into the numbers.  Given the full season results and stats for Princeton and Notre Dame, this pointspread is as accurate as it gets.  But when it comes to key tidbits of info?  Well, that’s where we can find an edge.

Princeton was forced to leave New Jersey on Monday due to the East Coast blizzard; more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.  That wouldn’t necessarily be a big deal, except for the fact that the Tigers played in the first ever Ivy League Championship Game on Sunday, creating a mad scramble for a team from a conference that has never had a conference tourney Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks at Montreal Canadiens

Chicago +105 at Montreal O/U 5
Recommendation: Chicago


Two Original Six clubs clash in "La Metropole" tonight, as the Chicago Blackhawks open a three-game north-of-the-border road trip against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs return home off of a four-game road trek of their own where they went 3-1 including a recent 4-1 victory over Edmonton. Montreal has won eight of its last 10 games overall and have recaptured the top spot in the Atlantic Division race with only 12 games remaining after tonight. The Canadiens however will have their hands full with Chicago, who is not only playing very sharp hockey as of late (13-3 streak, 8-1 on the road) but the Hawks have had the Habs' number over the years with six straight wins and a 8-0-2 mark in their last 10 meetings. Superstar Patrick Kane notched his 30th goal on Sunday in a big 4-2 victory over division rival Minnesota and goaltender Corey Crawford was sensational between the pipes, blocking 42 shots on net. The Montreal native has played very well against the club he watched as a kid, with a lifetime 6-0-2 mark versus the Habs. With the Blackhawks' solid 7-1 run as an Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Valparaiso Crusaders at Illinois Fighting Illini

Valparaiso at Illinois -9 O/U 140
Recommendation: Illinois


Valparaiso accepted the last at-large bid into the NIT tournament as a 7th seed and will face second seed Illinois. The Crusaders return to the court for the first time since they scored just 12 points in the first half of an evental 43-41 loss to UW-Milwaukee in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League tournament.

Illinois (18-14) enters the NIT in a unique spot as interim coach Jamall Walker take over after John Groce was fired over the weekend. The good news for Illinois is that the Crusaders' best player, Alec Peters, is out with an injury. Peters led Valpo with 23 ppg and 10 rpg. He's a Big Ten caliber player and one that is likely to have him name called in the NBA Draft. Not having to account for Peters gives an already solid Illinois defense a big edge.

Here's what Walker had to say about the situation: "It's the NIT," Walker said. " It's who's prepared and ready to play. Who's excited to play, who wants to play more than anything else." Walker says expects his players, especially the seniors, to go out with a bang. He compares his team to a Read more
