MLB Handicapper Free Play: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants

04.16.2015     10:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona (Bradley) +155 at San Francisco (Bumgarner) O/U 6.5
Recommendation: Arizona


San Fran lit up some lousy D-backs pitching in Arizona in their opening series of 2015, but this is anything but an elite lineup with Pablo Sandoval in Boston, Hunter Pence on the DL and Brandon Belt struggling with a strained groin.  Belt and starting third baseman Casey McGahee should be back in the lineup today, but even with that duo on the field, the Giants haven’t been scoring runs against anybody.

The defending champs have scored 1, 0, 1, 2, 4, 0, 1 and 2 runs in their last seven games, winning only once during that span.  They just got swept at home by the Rockies, producing only three runs in three games.  Manager Bruce Bochy: “We have some guys that are really, really pressing right now.  It’s pretty obvious looking at the at-bats.”

World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner carries a hefty price tag to support these days; as public a pitcher as you’ll find in baseball right now.  But even Bumgarner isn’t immune to the Giants April struggles, lit up in a dismal three inning start in San Read more

MLB Betting Trends: Overs the hot play this season

04.16.2015     09:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A couple of trends worth mentioning through the first two weeks of the MLB season.

Despite the league-wide offensive numbers being slightly down from 2014, scoring is up.

2014: 4.07 runs per game, .251/.314/.386/.700
2015: 4.13 runs per game, .242/.310/.384/.694

Note that the unearned run rate is up from 0.34 to 0.40 per game.

The uptick in scoring has resulted in a lot more overs with 56% of games cashing tickets (72-56-5 O/U).

Another strong trend has been road teams who are currently 71-62. Away favorites are 21-15 while underdogs are 49-47.

Of the 133 games, 19 (14%) have been decided by one run.

MLB Handicapping: Rogers Centre turf playing slow

04.16.2015     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Reports out of Toronto saying that the Rogers Centre's new artificial turf is playing really slow and causing the occasional wicked hop. A team spokesman claims it needs time to settle and will quicken with wear. One would think the slow turf would help Blue Jays starter Aaron Sanchez who is regarded as a "heavy groundballer."  


“It’s weird, but we’re going to have to adjust,” he said. “It’s definitely a lot slower than it was in the past and a lot slower than any other artificial turf I’ve ever laid my feet on.”

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

04.15.2015     10:21 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia (Williams) at New York (Niese) -140 O/U 7
Recommendation: Under


The Mets were hit by the injury bug yesterday as a pair of their middle of the order hitters went down. For 3B David Wright it looks to be about a two week absence due to a pulled hamstring while Michael Cuddyer could actually play tonight despite having a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch. With Jerome Williams throwing for the Phillies, New York manager Terry Collins could choose to insert LH hitting Kirk Nieuwenhuis into the lineup. Regardless of which way Collins constructs his lineup tonight, the key component for the Mets tonight figures to be LH starter Jon Niese who has been dominant recently not only against Philadelphia (1.95 ERA L5 starts) but at home as well (1.52 ERA L4 starts). The Phillies LH dominated lineup is weakened versus lefties but was able to benefit from four walks issued by Washington starter Gio Gonzalez in their only southpaw matchup thus far. Same isn’t likely to happen here as Niese has issued an average of just 2.3 walks in his last 81 starts dating back to 2011. Offense could be tough to come by for New York as well since Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Quintana) at Cleveland (Carrasco) -125 O/U 7
Recommendation: Under


The Cleveland Indians host the Chicago White Sox in the first of a two-game mid-week series. The South Siders will go with southpaw Jose Quintana who has posted a 1.52 ERA over 23.3 innings at Progressive Field. Quintana has also benefited from both his FIP and SIERA falling each of his first three years in the major leagues. Quintana’s velocity has stayed consistent throughout his time in the show capping out about 93 mph and has logged 200 innings the last two seasons. He is facing an Indians lineup that is missing a key bat in Michael Brantley who is listed as day-to-day and will likely not be back in the lineup today facing the lefty Quintana. The bat of Brantley missing does not help an Indians club who is struggling offensively with a team batting average of .238. The Tribe send Carlos Carrasco to the hill who struck out 10, while walking one, giving up no runs and allowing three hits in a win over the Astros on Wednesday. Carrasco posted a stellar 2.58 SIERA through 134+ innings last year and did not miss a beat in his 2015 debut. He will be facing a White Sox Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: National League Preview

04.13.2015     07:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I wrote a team-by-team overview of the 15 American League squads.  This week, I’ll shift my focus to the National League, breaking down each team from a Las Vegas perspective.  Teams are listed in alphabetical order, by division.

A week ago, the Atlanta Braves were viewed as likely bottom feeders following a massive offseason rebuild that resulted in only six players from opening day last year returning on opening day in 2015; lined in the same range as teams like Arizona, Colorado and Minnesota.  One week later and the market view of Atlanta has changed at least somewhat thanks to a 5-1 record with the best run differential in the NL.  Julio Teheran, Shelby Miller and Alex Wood all hav top-of-the-rotation stuff, but it’s hard to picture this anemic lineup continuing to deliver steady run support.

The Miami Marlins hung around in the wild card race into the dog days of August last year before Giancarlo Stanton’s Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Chicago Cubs at Colorado Rockies

04.12.2015     07:02 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Hendricks) at Colorado (Lyles) -125 O/U 10
Recommendation: Under


Colorado’s Jordan Lyles looked sharp in his first start going 6 innings and allowing two earned runs at Milwaukee. Lyles is the type of pitcher that groundball rate tends to be just as important if not more than strikeout rate. He fanned only two batters but garnered 11 groundouts. After working on his changeup during spring training I expect Lyles to show better than last year's 4.81 ERA at Coors Field. Like Lyles, Chicago's Kyle Hendricks doesn't project to miss many bats at the MLB level. But a lot of reports rave about his ability to hit his spots and keep the ball low in the zone. In 80.1 innings last year year he fanned only 47 but also allowed only four home runs. Yesterday's game produced 14 runs and four home runs thanks to two long ball prone starters (Hammel and Kendrick). With two starters that show more ability to induce ground balls as well as a projected wind in from left center, we'll look to play this afternoon affair under the total.
