MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers at San Diego Padres

03.30.2018     08:39 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Otto Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mulwaukee (Chacin) -125 at San Diego (Lucchesi) O/U 8
Recommendation: Under

Only three runs combined in last night's opener at Petco Park as the Brewers won in 12 innings, 2-1. Even with the bullpens getting an early season workout, we'll look for another low scoring game tonight. The Padres will send rookie Joey Lucchesi to the hill. Lucchesi is a former 4th rounder out of college who rolled through Single-A and Double-A. He's a lefty with a funky delivery that should be effective the first time through the league.

"...Watch him when he’s pitching. His stuff plays. There’s real deception to it. It’s tough to pick up.

“It’s a real three-pitch mix that is going to play well at the big league level. The word to him is just go pitch like you’ve always pitched. Don’t worry about the venue, the setting, the scenario. Just go pitch.”

Milwaukee will counter with former Padres Jhoulys Chacin who while an average MLB starter has had plenty of success in this venue. Over the span of 18 career starts and 115 IP Chacin sports a 2.03 ERA in Petco Read more

 “As a kid, you’re taught, ‘Down in the zone, down in the zone,’ ” said San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey, who was also a star pitcher as an amateur. “And when I first got up [to the majors], you were still seeing tons of [sinkers] and hard sliders. But now, hitters are geared to handling hard velocity down in the zone and hard sliders, so what you’re seeing is elevated four-seamers and curveballs making more of a comeback. It’s definitely something we’ve talked about this spring.”

MLB Handicapping: Angels Stadium to play smaller after adjustment to home run distance

03.26.2018     10:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors should be aware that the Los Angeles Angels adjusted the home run distance to right field by placing a line at 8 feet as opposed to needing to clear the 18-foot fence.


It will certainly help left-handed hitters and right-handed hitters with opposite-field power more than pitchers. Based on three-dimensional trajectories provided by Statcast, there would have been 17 more homers hit in Angel Stadium in 2017 and 16 more in 2016.

MLB Gambling News: Arizona Diamondbacks to use humidor at Chase Field

02.15.2018     09:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This should make for an interesting handicap. The Arizona Diamondbacks are finally going to install a humidor which some think will suppress home runs and this scoring by a significant amount. Below are the over/under, average total, and average runs scored results at Chase Field over the last five seasons.

2017: 42-34-7 O/U, avg. total 9.4, avg. rpg 9.95
2016: 50-28-3 O/U, avg. total 9.0, avg. rpg 11.16
2015: 39-35-5 O/U, avg. total 8.4, avg. rpg 9.11
2014: 36-41-4 O/U, avg. total 8.3, avg. rpg 8.98
2013: 34-46-1 O/U, avg. total 8.5, avg. rpg 8.40


 “I am very comfortable saying that, with the humidor running at 50 percent and 70 degrees, there will a reduction in home run production at Chase by 25 to 50 percent,” Nathan concluded. “While it would be nice to come up with a more precise prediction, we should not lose sight of the principal takeaway that the installation of a humidor will reduce the number of home
