Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Underdogs have owned the NBA Playoffs

04.28.2014     08:14 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seven of the eight first round NBA Playoff series have proven to be competitive – only the Miami Heat have a commanding 3-0 series lead in their series over the Charlotte Bobcats.   After an opening weekend that saw underdogs go 6-2 ATS, 5-3 SU, the prevailing trend of upsets continued throughout the last week.

The current numbers are quite striking.  Pointspread favorites are a woeful 7-21-2 ATS through the first 30 playoff games.  In fact the favored team is just 14-16 SU – underdog moneyline bettors have been feasting over the first nine days of playoff action.  Therefore, it’s no surprise that the lower seeded team has the series lead in the Spurs-Mavs, Wizards-Bulls and Blazers-Rockets series, with potentially live underdogs still in play for Grizzles-Thunder, Warriors-Clippers, Nets-Raptors, and Pacers-Hawks.

What gives?  Why have the dogs covered at a 75% clip through the first 30 Playoff games?   Let’s start with the simple premise that the top seeds are more vulnerable than the markets expected while the lower seeds have proven to be no pushovers.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: San Diego Padres at Washington Nationals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
San Diego (Kennedy) +105 at Washington (Jordan) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: San Diego


Early start in Washington, D.C. with the Padres and Nationals concluding their four-game series. After last year’s disastrous campaign (5.23 ERA), San Diego’s Ian Kennedy looks to be in solid form. He sports a decent 3.60 ERA and an even more impressive 28-8 K/BB ratio.  Those numbers can be directly tied to an uptick in velocity. Keep in mind, Kennedy isn’t far removed from 2011’s 2.88 ERA that spanned over 220 innings. His last outing in Milwaukee (6 IP, 4 hits, 1 ER) solidified him as a “bet on” pitcher. The same cannot be said for Washington’s Taylor Jordan.  In fact, with a strong showing from Tyler Roark yesterday and Doug Fister working his way back from injury, Jordan’s time in the starting rotation is coming to an end.  He’s going in the wrong direction since his first start of the season against the Braves having Read more

MLB Handicapping: Dickey struggles vs. American League continue

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore (Gonzalez) at Toronto (Dickey) -135 O/U 8.5

With the exception of a quality start vs. the Yankees – a team he has historically fared very well against – RA Dickey has really struggled. In three outings against Minnesota, Houston, and Tampa, Dickey allowed 16 earned runs and an alarming 14 walks. He claims he's healthy and his stuff is fine but it appears that teams are taking a more patient approach against the knuckleballer and forcing him to come in the zone. In three starts vs. the Orioles last season, Dickey allowed 16 earned runs (7.71 ERA) and five home runs.


“It’s amazing that he can keep that thing in the zone period,” manager John Gibbons said of the number of walks that Dickey has amassed this season.

“To be able to throw that thing in the strike zone is pretty tough as it is, but

Baltimore (Jimenez) at Boston (Peavy) -155 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Boston


The Orioles will send the enigmatic Ubaldo Jimenez to the bump.  The one time flame-thrower has been up and down for much of the last three seasons. His velocity has dramatically fallen since his days with the Colorado Rockies.  As a rookie in 2007, Jimenez’s fastball averaged 97 mph. This year’s fastball is hovering in the low 90’s. From 2008-10, Jimenez threw 630 innings – half of which in Coors Field where pitchers are stressed even more than normal in order to gain movement in the thin air. Jimenez is also quirky with his mechanics and rarely goes three of four consecutive starts without some sort of issue. The dip in velocity and poor mechanics are directly tied to his current 7.31 ERA. Boston’s lineup led the league in runs scored last season en route to a World Series title.  They’ve been slow out of the box in 2014 (24th runs scored, .345 slugging) but have Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins

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
