Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: American League Preview

04.06.2015     08:01 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The college basketball season is in the rear view mirror now.  The NBA Playoffs don’t start until next weekend.   That can only mean one thing – baseball is here!  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll be breaking down the American League, team by team in overview fashion.  I’ll do the same thing next week for the National League.  The goal?  Identify potential market inefficiencies right from the get-go; looking for overvalued and undervalued commodities.  Teams are listed in alphabetical order, by division.

The Baltimore Orioles were, by far, the single most profitable team to support in MLB last year, yet the betting markets aren’t particularly enamored with Buck Showalter’s squad heading into 2015.  The Orioles had the 2nd biggest gap between their FIP (fielding independent pitching) and their ERA last year, a strong indicator for future regression.   And the best home run hitting team in baseball lost big bats Nelson Cruz and Nick Markakis in the offseason.  That being said, the Orioles have been consistently undervalued in recent seasons and they Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Texas Rangers

04.02.2015     01:11 PM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

The betting markets were fairly sour on the Texas Rangers after last year's 67-95 result and it only got worse following Yu Darvish's season-ending arm injury. Projected to finish at the bottom of the AL West with Houston, expectations almost don't exists.

Texas Rangers
2014 W-L:
67-95
2014 O/U: 70-81-11
2014 Profits: -20.5
2015 O/U Wins: 76
2015 AL West Odds: +555
Projected Starting Rotation: Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Ross Detwiler, Nick Martinez
Key Departures: Alexi Ogando, Alex Rios
Key Additions: Yovani Gallardo

Handicapper’s Take: “The Texas Rangers present an interesting question, “is the glass half full or half empty?” Last season was a disaster with an embarrassing 67-95 record, while more importantly dropping below the Houston Astros in the standings. A bet against the Rangers in every game and produced a hefty profit around +20 net units. Of course, injuries wreaked havoc on last year’s Read more

MLB Handicapping: RA Dickey starts seasons without long-time battery mate

04.02.2015     08:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article courtesy of FanGraphs on RA Dickey and his new battery mate Russell Martin. Dickey has throw over half of his career innings with Josh Thole behind the plate. Of those 781.1 IP with Thole, Dickey's ERA was 3.44. In 718.1 IP without Thole, Dickey's ERA is over a run higher at 4.56. Note that some of those "non-Thole innings" were prior to the switch to become a full-time knuckleballer. As for this season, with the acquisition of Martin, Thole, who is awful with the bat (.214 BA last two seasons), was optioned to Triple-A. Reports indicate that Martin and Dickey are making progress and the organization feels that Martin's defensive pedigree and ability to hit will provide the Blue Jays with a much needed upgrade.

MLB Gambling Update: Cosart says he's never bet on baseball

04.02.2015     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Update of an update. Miami's Jarred Cosart claims to have never bet on baseball which we have no reason not to believe. However, he still hasn't used "my Twitter account was hacked" as an excuse for the questionable Tweets which means he's probably betting on other sports -- a perfectly legal pastime according the MLB rules. 


"I told all these guys, I never have, never will bet on baseball," he said, according to the Miami Herald. "That's the only statement I can come out with right now. I'm letting MLB security [handle the rest]. They've investigated my Twitter. I had to speak to some people from their offices last week, but I'm in a good position on it, I'm confident. Like I said, it's kind of just in the commissioner's hands now and we'll see what he does with it."

MLB Gambling: Of course the Cubs are taking money to win the World Series

04.01.2015     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Every Tom, Dick, and Harry is reportedly betting the Cubs to win the World Series. Good for them.


"Every year, they bet the Cubs," Jeff Stoneback, assistant manager at MGM race and sports. "I could be their ace and you could be their No. 2 starter, and they'd still bet them."

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Houston Astros

04.01.2015     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

After years of being one of the worst teams in baseball, the Houston Astros have bypassed a number of teams in terms of season o/u win expectations. They're moving in the right direction but with a questionable pitching staff, bettors should approach with caution.

Houston Astros
2014 W-L:
70-92
2014 O/U: 71-87-4
2014 Profits: +1
2015 O/U Wins: 75.5
2015 AL West Odds: +2000
Projected Starting Rotation: Scott Feldman, Dallas Keuchel, Colin McHugh, Brett Oberholtzer, Dan Straily
Key Departures: Dexter Fowler
Key Additions: Pat Neshek, Evan Gattis

Handicapper’s Take: “Atypically, the massively improved Houston Astros didn’t even come close to being the biggest moneyline winner in MLB last season. They ranked 13th and just barely above break even after winning 70 games. Yes, it was a massive jump from the 54-win average the previous three seasons but also a prime example that winning games remains crucial in beating Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Seattle Mariners

04.01.2015     07:30 AM     Printer Friendly
copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

With one of the top pitching staffs in the American League, the Seattle Mariners are projected to contend for a postseason spot. Whether or not they can produce enough offensively remains the big question.

Seattle Mariners 
2014 W-L:
87-75
2014 O/U: 66-88-8
2014 Profits: +3.6
2015 O/U Wins: 86.5
2015 AL West Odds: +160
Projected Starting Rotation: Felix Hernandez, Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton, JA Happ, Taijuan Walker
Key Departures: Seth Smith, Corey Hart, Kendrys Morales
Key Additions: Brandon Maurer, Nelson Cruz 
 
Handicapper's Take: "What the Chicago Cubs are to the National League, the Mariners are to the American League in terms of failed expectations.  Ironically, both teams feature heightened forecasts for the 2015 season.  The Mariners are projected to be well over .500 and a co-betting favorite with the Los Angeles Angels to win the American League West.  Pitching will once Read more
