MLB Handicapping: Molina's injury comes at bad time for Cardinals

07.10.2014     03:26 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like St. Louis will be without All-Star catcher Yadier Molina (thumb) for 8-12 weeks. Molina obviously impacts the game a number of ways. For starters he’s an underrated commodity offensively (.287/.341/.751) – and at times has been St. Louis’ best bat. Secondly, and most obvious, is the countless ways he helps the team defensively. He all but completely shuts down opposing teams’ run games (49% caught stealing, league average 26%). And just as important is the way he handles the pitching staff. Tony Cruz is a more than adequate backup, but keep in mind the Cardinals are down three starters with Jamie Garcia, Michael Wacha, and Joe Kelly on the shelf. And Tyler Lyons, Marco Gonzales, Miller, and Martinez are all young and/or have had recent struggles. Molina is just the kind of catcher to help those guys power through tough situations. This year's numbers with Cruz behind the plate aren't that far removed from that of Molina – and Cruz has caught Adam Wainwright only once. But last year, with a larger sample size, the team's ERA with Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Pittsburgh Pirates at St. Louis Cardinals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pittsburgh (Volquez) at St. Louis (Miller) O/U 8
Recommendation: Over


St. Louis has given Pittsburgh starter Edinson Volquez fits over the years with Volquez owning a 5.58 ERA in 13 career outings. Volquez has allowed two runs over his last 21 innings of work which is impressive but not so much when you consider he was facing the Phillies, Mets and Rays. Volquez was hammered in his previous visit to Busch Stadium this season allowing 6 runs on 7 hits in 5.2 innings. The Cardinals have finally found some traction offensively scoring 4+ runs in four of their last five games and should match up well here. Shelby Miller has certainly come back down to earth having allowed 16 runs on 29 hits in 19.1 innings over his last four starts and he's walked as many batters as he's struck out. Pittsburgh will never be known as an explosive offense but they have had some previous success against Miller particularly last year and this will be their third time facing him this season so I expect the Read more

MLB Handicapping: Worley prospering after mechanical adjustments

07.08.2014     08:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good stuff on Pittsburgh starter Vance Worley who after struggling with Minnesota and being sent down to Triple-A noticed a mechanical flaw and has bounced back strong (4 starts, 2.28 ERA). He's a small road underdog at St. Louis this evening.


"When I went over to the Twins, that was something they never noticed," Worley said. "I was flying open, and then you can see everything out of my hand. I changed the mechanics; the next thing I know, I'm in Triple A."

"That's all it was," Worley said of the mechanical fix. "I still have all the turn [in my delivery]. Everything's there. It was just this vs. that. I'm just glad that they believed in me and knew who I was and what I was capable of."

MLB Gambling Alert: Kansas City's Ventura back after arm discomfort

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
St. Louis (Wacha) -110 at Kansas City (Ventura) O/U 7.5

Kansas City's Yordano Ventura will make his first start since being removed from a May 26 start due to arm discomfort and diminished velocity. Ventura reportedly had a very good bullpen session with no pain.


“He threw really, really well,” Chen said, grinning inside the visitors clubhouse at Rogers Centre before a 4-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. “And that’s bad news for the Cardinals.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Preseason NFC Betting News and Notes

06.02.2014     10:40 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote that “the NFL offseason, at least for sports bettors, is essentially over.  Numbers are up, and they’re moving!”

“My first step in assessing the upcoming NFL season begins with a thorough look back at last year.  Every team’s power rating is set, in large part, based on where they finished the previous campaign.  Obviously, adjustments are made for injuries, luck, offseason improvements or declines, coaching changes and the like, but those base power rating numbers factor in what happened in 2013 very heavily.”

Last week, I focused on the 16 teams from the AFC.  In this week’s Vegas Wiseguy Report, I’ll pass along a tidbit or two from each of the 16 NFC teams in regards to last year.  My focus is on things that are NOT likely to repeat the same way in 2014.  And this week, I’ll do my absolute best to avoid egregious errors like my ‘San Diego didn’t make the 2013 playoffs’ Read more

MLB Handicapping: Cincinnati's Bailey struggles with fastball, lefties

05.23.2014     07:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
St. Louis (Miller) at Cincinnati (Bailey) -110 O/U 7.5

Cincinnati's Homer Bailey has had his struggles this year with a 5.44 ERA and 1.578 WHIP in nine starts. He's been a bit unlucky (.348 BABIP, 18.4% HR/FB) and pitched better than his raw numbers (3.63 xFIP) but one of the things holding Bailey back is lefties. Like most right-handers, lefties have hit Bailey better than righties throughout his career but the discrepancy isn't outrageous (.426 SLG vs. L, .403 SLG vs. R). This year’s splits however are eye-popping. Lefties are hitting .373 BA, .453 OBP, .602 SLG, and 1.055 vs. Bailey. It looks as if a lot of the damage is coming via the fastball. Against Bailey's four- and two-seam fastballs, hitters are hitting a robust .362 vs. .230 last season. Again, some of it is bad luck and the sample size isn't very big but it is still a split worth monitoring moving Read more

MLB Handicapping: St. Louis' Shelby Miller still searching for better command

05.17.2014     06:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on St. Louis starting pitcher Shelby Miller, who despite owning “plus stuff”, has had command issues for much of the season with 27 walks in 44.2 innings. And for his career, he's been a bit lucky that the lack of command hasn't had a significant impact on his results (thus far). Following his last outing against Pittsburgh (5.1 IP, 2 ER, 4 BBs) Miller went back and watched film to find any mechanical flaws. He's slated to start this afternoon against Atlanta.


"Sometimes when you play catch, you fall out of routine a little bit or don't take it as seriously as you need to," Miller said. "The big thing for me is, even when it's loosening up and playing catch, it's making sure to hit a spot and work on things even between starts every single day. I think maybe that's what I have been slacking at."

"A lot of that is just

MLB Handicapper Free Play: St. Louis Cardinals at Cincinnati Reds

St. Louis (Wainwright) at Cincinnati (Cueto) +115 O/U 7
Recommendation: Cincinnati


I have no hesitation fading Adam Wainwright at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati.  This park and this opponent has been a house of horrors for Wainwright in recent years, despite his Cy Young caliber overall campaigns.
 
In two starts against the Reds after the All Star break last year, Wainwright got clobbered both times: eight innings pitched, 17 hits and 15 earned runs allowed.  He notched only one win in four tries against Cincinnati for the season.  In 2012, wainwright had an ERA above 5.00 versus the Reds, again, notching only a single win against a divisional rival.
 
It’s surely worth noting that Wainwright got lit up at Arizona on opening day last year, allowing eleven hits and four runs in six innings of work.  Wainwright went 0-3 in April 2012, finishing the month with a 7.32 ERA as the Cards lost all four of his Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting: Kentucky in great form but Louisville remains moderate favorite

03.25.2014     06:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kentucky vs. Louisville -5 O/U 138.5

Current form or entire body of work? That is the conundrum with Friday's Kentucky-Louisville game. The Wildcats have looked Final Four-esque (4-1 SU, 5-0 ATS) since losing to Florida in the regular season finale. The Cardinals meanwhile received scares in their first two tourney games from Manhattan and Saint Louis – trailing in the second half of both only to pull away late. Prior to the NCAA Tournament, 14 of Louisville's last 15 wins came by double-digits. UK won the regular season meeting in Lexington, 73-66 as 1.5-point favorites. For Friday, Louisville has held steady as a 5-point favorite; something oddsmakers don't feel will change much prior to tip-off.


“The line is based on rating of both teams,” he said. “Kentucky played great Sunday. From what I’ve seen, it was one of their best-played games all year… So yes, the line probably came down a little bit from what I thought it would be originally. But you

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 2-7-2014

02.07.2014     11:17 AM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After missing seven straight games with a foot injury, Michigan State senior center Adreian Payne returned Thursday night in an 82-67 home win over Penn State at Breslin Center. Payne scored 12 points, grabbed three rebounds, dished out two assists and blocked one shot in 18 minutes of playing time. However, starting guard Keith Appling couldn't go against PSU due to a wrist injury. Appling, who averages 15.0 points and 4.9 assists per game, is 'questionable' for Sunday's game at Wisconsin. Also, Branden Dawson (hand) remains out and isn't expected to be back until early March.

Florida freshman center Chris Walker made his debut in Tuesday's non-covering home win over Missouri. Walker played only seven minutes, scoring four points with a pair of dunks and two blocked shots. Look for his minutes to gradually increase as he becomes more comfortable with what the Gators are running on both ends of the court.

Minnesota leading scorer Andre Hollins returned from a sprained ankle suffered on Jan. 22 to play in Wednesday's 77-74 overtime loss at Purdue. Hollins had missed back-to-back games (both defeats). He played 36 minutes and finished with eight points, four Read more
