MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
San Francisco (Peavy) -110 at Colorado (Lyles) O/U 11.5
Recommendation: Over


The San Francisco Giants (6-2) have jumped out to an early lead in the National League West thanks to a red hot .860 team OPS. They’ll be be facing another offensive minded team in the Colorado Rockies tonight who possess the second highest team OPS in the National League. Tonight’s starting pitchers suggests the offensive production should continue. Jake Peavy has long been past his prime and looked shaky in his first start with 10 hits and 4 earned runs allowed. He also has not fared well in this venue with an opponent's’ team OPS of .860 and dismal 1.61 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 11 appearances. A few reports coming out of spring had Jordan Lyles pegged as a sleeper heading into the campaign but he got knocked around a bit in his first outing (3.1 IP, 5 ERs). And despite his ground ball tendencies, he’s yet to figure out Coors Field with a 5.16 lifetime ERA in nearly 100 innings of work. The potential is there for multiple big innings as we look to play the over.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Analyzing the early season MLB betting markets

04.11.2016     10:17 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Matt Harvey lost again on Sunday, with the Mets priced as high as -280 here in Las Vegas.  Chris Archer leads the majors in strikeouts, while King Felix ranks second as I write this early Monday morning. Their two teams -- Tampa and Seattle -- teams are a combined 0-4 in the four starts from those two aces.   I closed out last week writing about how betting on aces – the guys that advanced metrics really, truly love – has evolved into a negative expectation wager over the last few years.  The quants have emerged as the dominating force in the MLB betting marketplace and there’s no way that I’ve uncovered to beat them at their own game.

So, I’ve been focusing on the opening week of the MLB season with an anti-quant mentality, looking to take advantage of what the betting markets are undervaluing, not overvaluing.  If the markets are too tilted towards starting pitching, that leaves three areas that aren’t appropriately priced, in my opinion – lineups, bullpens and streaks. 

There’s already early season action for streak bettors, with the Orioles winning while the Twins and Braves keep Read more

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

Texas (Perez) at Los Angeles (Weaver) -110 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over


Texas' Martin Perez delivered a quality start last time out by going 6 innings and allowing only two earned runs against Seattle. It however wasn't as smooth a showing as the statline indicated. Here's what Texas manager Jeff Banister had to say about Perez's performance: "Couldn't quite find the rhythm, it looked like. Always pitching in traffic. He had a tough time finding the range with his breaking ball." Note that Perez walked four and fanned a modest three during that outing. LA's Jered Weaver is turning into a science experiment: How long can he tolerate the pain in his back and arm and how slow can he toss his fastball. Of course Weaver claims his stuff is "close" to returning and on his better days, he can still junk it up enough to get through five or six innings. That doesn't mean that he's still not one of the weakest starters in baseball at this point. With two so-so starting pitchers, bettors should also be aware of what could take place in the late innings. To our benefit, both bullpens have been less than stellar. They've already combined to Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Arizona Diamondbacks

Chicago (Hammel) -135 at Arizona (Ray) O/U 9
Recommendation: Over


Even with the roof closed at Chase Field on Friday (decent chance of desert rain tonight), I’m still looking to bet the Over in Phoenix tonight.  Both of these teams have come out of the gate swinging – literally.  We’ve seen 17 home runs hit through the first four games at Chase Field.  Three of the first four games here have produced 15 runs or more.  And there’s no reason to expect anything dramatically different tonight.

Lineups are undervalued in the 2016 MLB betting marketplace, with starting pitchers exerting enormous influence over the prices for both sides and totals.  These two lineups have no business with a total of 9 right now.  Chicago has pounded out 29 runs in their first three games, with 14 extra base hits and an OPS of .920 in the process.  Arizona has scored 25 runs in four games even with AJ Pollack out with a broken elbow; hitting .295 as a team with 16 extra bae hits and an OPS of .851.  As we saw last night, either one of these lineups is capable of approaching or exceeding the total Read more

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
