MLB Handicapper Free Play: Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Seattle (Elias) -115 at Miami (Alvarez) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Seattle

This will be the second straight start I've supported Seattle's Roenis Elias, a talented left-hander making his first run through the league. Elias has an above average fastball (92-93 mph) and good command of his off-speed offerings. He's probably been a bit fortunate and may run into trouble at times when teams get a second and third look but he's got legitimate American League middle-of-the-rotation stuff which is more than I can say for his counterpart, Miami's Henderson Alvarez. Despite being an extreme groundballer, Alvarez is very hittable having allowed 25 hits in 14.2 innings this season. His BABIP suggests some of that was bad luck but it is his overall splits point towards continued struggles vs. the Mariners. Because of his sinkerball ways, Alvarez gives right handers a tough time (.253/.292/.385). But against lefties, he really struggles (.291/.354./.470). Seattle has the ability to send as many as seven Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Atlanta Braves at Philadelphia Phillies

Atlanta -120 at Philadelphia O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Atlanta

Strong weekend for each of these clubs as they completed series sweeps at home yesterday. For Atlanta, the ramifications were significant since they decisively swept their main divisional competitor Washington by a cumulative score of 23-11. Atlanta’s offense ripped through the Nationals pitching posting a .306 BA, .398 OBP, and 1.000 OPS. Justin Upton has been red hot lately and Freedie Freeman is third in MLB with a .442 BA. Tonight they’ll face Philadelphia’s Roberto Hernandez whose propensity to cause hitters to swing and miss (had 20 in his last start vs. Milwaukee) could cause problems for Atlanta’s free swinging lineup. In the other dugout, the Phillies defeated Miami’s studs Jose Fernandez and Nate Eovaldi on Friday and Saturday before pounding out 12 hits vs. Henderson Alvarez yesterday. In all, the Marlins starters lasted a combined 16.1 IP while allowing 27 hits, 7 walks and 13 Read more

NBA Handicapping: Phoenix Suns in must-win situation vs. Memphis Grizzlies

04.14.2014     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Memphis at Phoenix -2.5 O/U 195.5

A game behind Memphis and void of any tie-breakers in their favor, the Phoenix Suns need a lot of favorable bounces to reach the postseason. First, they'll need to beat Memphis tonight and Sacramento on Wednesday. They'll also need the Grizzlies to lose to Dallas in their season finale – the only problem is the Mavs are locked into the seventh seed and will have nothing to play for.

Gambling Update: Atlantic City casino introduces sophisticated poker chips

04.10.2014     07:30 AM     Printer Friendly

After getting burned by fake chips, Atlantic City's Borgata Casino was forced to go a more modern route. The new chips can be authenticated using some sort of UV light.

"This was very expensive, but very necessary," said Joe Lupo, the casino's senior vice president. "In order to have the biggest tournaments in Atlantic City and as the market leader, we need to ensure the integrity of the games."

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Philadelphia Flyers at Florida Panthers

Philadelphia -165 at Florida O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Under

As we come upon the last 6 days of the NHL regular season, most of the "must win" teams are priced heavily with juice.  I don't mind laying juice now and then as long as I feel I'm getting value.  As most of my clients and followers know, I play the majority of my NHL totals Under and last night all three games easily cashed with a combined five goals scored in those games!  Hockey is a difficult sport for the books since the totals can really only be one of three choices 5, 5.5, or 6.  The amount of juice they attach to the total is where they try and make up for their deficiencies, but even then we find lots of value in say taking the Under 5.5 -145 instead of Under 5 +110.  Five is such a key number that getting that hook when you have the Under is sometimes worth .50 to .60 cents in my opinion.  Most professional handicappers would scoff at laying that kind of juice on a total, but in the NHL it is how I've grinded out profits for years.

With all that being said, we find lots of value in tonight's Flyers and Panthers Under.  -125 is Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: The Indiana Pacers' historic ATS slide

04.07.2014     08:02 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
The Indiana Pacers have been a remarkable pointspread story this year, worthy of a Wiseguy Report to examine in detail what has happened and why.  To be thorough, this story starts last year when the Pacers flexed their collective muscles, developing into a title contender for the first time in a decade.  

Indiana was good, not great, in the 2012-13 regular season.  They won 49 games, tied for the third best record in the (much) weaker of the two conferences.  Here’s an excerpt of what I wrote about the Pacers heading into the playoffs last year:

“A month ago, I would have listed the Pacers as Miami’s toughest Eastern Conference potential test.  Indiana’s defensive numbers rank among the best in the NBA, and low post behemoth Roy Hibbert is a very tough matchup for the Heat in the paint.  Indiana beat Miami twice during the regular season, and the Pacers were the last team to give the Heat real trouble in the playoffs last year, taking a 2-1 series lead in the Eastern Conference semi’s before the Heat closed out the series with three straight wins.

But the Pacers have not Read more

NCAA Final Four Gambling: Kentucky a short favorite over UConn for title game

04.07.2014     07:10 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The college basketball season comes to an end tonight with 8th seed Kentucky taking on 7th seed UConn. The Wildcats opened -3 at CRIS and -3.5 at Pinnacle but have since been bet down to -2.5 at most offshore sportsbooks. Yesterday, the total got steamed from 133.5 to 135. UK has gone over the total in four straight games. According to LVH, the Huskies were 100-1 to win the title prior to the start of the tournament while the Cats were 50-1.

“They have a lot going for them,” Ed Salmons, assistant sports book director at the LVH Superbook who oversees college basketball, said earlier this week. “They’re so 3-point dependent, and if they hit their shots and make a lot of them, it can change the whole complexion of the game.”
