MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas +105 at Los Angeles O/U 8
Recommendation: Texas


I had the Texas Rangers on my radar as a team I’d be looking to support and one that could challenge the Houston Astros for AL West supremacy in 2016 and even after a bitter end to their opening series against Seattle which included a couple of bullpen meltdowns, I’m willing to step in and support them tonight. Texas is the more complete and well-rounded team. They have a very strong lineup with veteran hitters like Adrian Beltre, Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo among others. I’m not ready to panic about the early season bullpen issues for the Rangers as that unit is loaded with fastball arms that can dial it up on the radar gun. The Angels lineup is very spotty outside of Mike Trout. Albert Pujols isn't the hitter he used to be and while Cole Calhoun is a solid hitter, outside of that, it's a weak lineup and it has shown already as the Angels have been ice cold at the plate getting outscored by the Chicago Cubs 15-1 in that two-game series. I'm also not convinced that Huston Street can hold up as the closer.

In tonight’s starting pitching matchup, I’m Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago White Sox at Oakland A's

Chicago (Latos) at Oakland (Graveman) -115 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over


At this point, Mat Latos can only be considered a lower-tier American League starter. His velocity has been in steady decline the last two seasons and during the spring, reports suggest that he's not in particularly good form. It's going to be a struggle for Latos to get outs on the consistent basis in the American League. If Oakland's Kendall Graveman can stay healthy, he's not a bad fit for the West Coast. He doesn't miss a lot of bats (5.99 K-rate last season) but has shown flashes of being a solid ground ball pitcher. I do have my concerns about today's start as a number of A's players have recently been dealing with a flu bug including Graveman who lost 12 lbs. There wasn't much offense in last night's game with Oakland winning 2-1 as Sonny Gray and Carlos Rodon -- two premium arms -- keep most hitters in check. But in watching the game, there were a lot of line drives and well hit balls that were tracked down for outs. You can expect more of the same today with two pitch-to-contact starters. Game time temps expected to be around 70 degrees with 10 mph winds out to left Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers at San Diego Padres

Los Angeles (Maeda) -130 at San Diego (Cashner) O/U 7
Recommendation: Los Angeles


Japanese right-hander Kenta Maeda will make his major league debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers today as they close out their series against San Diego. The Padres will send Andrew Cashner to the hill in hopes of avoiding the sweep. The Dodgers outscored the Padres 18-0 the first two games of the series.
 
The Padres only managed one hit and a total of only two base runners through seven innings against Clayton Kershaw on Opening Day. They didn’t fare much better last night against Scott Kazmir who held San Diego to just one base runner through six innings of work. Maeda was an elite arm in the Japan Central League for eight years, only twice logging an ERA north of 2.60. He is already being compared to Seattle’s Hisashi Iwakuma, with scouts stating, “Maeda will succeed where most Japanese pitchers have not in the transition to American baseball by maintaining his low walk rate. His command is really impressive, and even when his stuff isn’t at its peak he can get guys out with superior location.” He posted a 15-8 record with Read more

MLB Handicapping: Scouts say that New York's Tanaka still not right

04.05.2016     07:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There still appears to be some concern with Masahiro Tanaka's arm heading into this afternoon's opening day start against the Astros. Reports indicate than Tanaka's velocity and movement are still lacking. We vividly remember Tanaka's Wild Card start against the Astros last season where he was basically afraid to throw the ball over the plate for fear of it getting pounded. Tanaka is currently a +120 home underdog to Houston and Dallas Keuchel.


“He looked like a guy who was holding back,’’ the scout said. “I didn’t see anything out of him this spring that showed greatness. He’s got really good stuff, but I didn’t see it. His ball just didn’t have the movement it usually does.’’

Los Angeles (Kershaw) at San Diego (Ross) +180 O/U 6
Recommendation: San Diego


Clayton Kershaw is a true ace, arguably the best pitcher in the NL.  Last year, he became the first pitcher in MLB history to finish among the Top 3 in Cy Young voting in five consecutive seasons.  His team finished in first place.  And oh, by the way, if you bet on Kershaw in every game, you lost more than five units over the season.  And given the nature of the 2016 MLB betting marketplace, wagering on the best pitcher in the NL is likely to be a money losing proposition moving forward.

All of Kershaw’s dominant numbers are baked into this line, leaving the Dodgers priced as $2 road favorites this evening.  His counterpart on the Padres side, Tyson Ross, put up truly dominant numbers last year, the only pitcher in the majors besides Cubs ace Jake Arrieta to finish in the Top 10 in both strikeouts per nine innings and ground ball rates last year.

Arrieta finished the season as the most profitable pitcher in baseball, but Ross was on the wrong end of the  luck equation repeatedly, finishing the season with only ten Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Understanding the MLB Betting Markets Part II

04.04.2016     10:17 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part I of this article last week, I illustrated how the quants have come to dominate the MLB betting marketplace over the course of the last few seasons, completely changing the value equation moving forward.  Advanced metric starting pitching stats have become the primary basis for all baseball moneylines, leaving a market that devalues every other aspect of the game.  That leaves opportunities for alternative strategies to succeed here in 2016 and beyond.

I used several examples last week to demonstrate my point about the modern markets.  The following example is probably the best of the bunch, using the strikeouts per nine innings advanced metric stat (K/9).

In 2005, the top eight pitchers in strikeouts per nine innings were Mark Prior, Jake Peavy, Johan Santana, Brett Myers, Pedro Martinez, John Lackey, AJ Burnett and Jason Schmidt.  Six of the eight starters produced a profit for their supporters, and if you bet on the leaders in the K/9 stat for the Read more
