MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Diego Padres at Arizona Diamondbacks

San Diego (Chacin) at Arizona (Greinke) -160 O/U 9
Recommendation: Arizona

Expecting a reversal of fortunes for San Diego’s Jhoulys Chacin who just five days beat Arizona 1-0 at home. Chacin attributes his success in that contest to using the entirety of his pitching repertoire but examination of his first four starts this season indicates it may be due more to Petco Park. Petco has been renovated to try to improve offense but it’s still favorable to pitchers and in his pair of home starts, Chacin has yet to allow an earned run. He’s thrown an extremely impressive 14.1 innings of shutout ball against the strong offenses of Arizona and the Los Angeles Dodgers. His WHIP in those two games is 0.55, K:BB ratio is 5-1 and his pitches per inning average is an outstanding 13.36. However, Chacin’s pair of road starts have been the polar opposite as he’s exited the mound after only 5 full and 3.1 innings pitched. Those contests were at Atlanta and at LA who combined to get 26 baserunners in those 8.1 (3.1 per inning).

Those numbers spell disaster in Chase Field as Diamondbacks own MLB’s top ranked Read more

MLB Gambling Update: Home runs at Chase Field to plummet

04.24.2017     09:22 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Another article discussing the Arizona Diamondbacks' decision to install a humidor. There is still no word on exactly when this will take place but based on projections, once it does, you can expect totals at Chase Field to fall more in line with the rest of the National League. In the meantime, Chase Field's roof will be open for Arizona's four-game series vs. San Diego starting tonight.


“There will be a fairly substantial reduction in the amount of home runs hit at Chase Field. Now, exactly what that number is, I can’t really say with any precision,” said Alan Nathan, a professor emeritus at the University of Illinois who regularly applies physics to baseball. “In either result, it’s going to be substantial, somewhere between a 25 and 50 percent reduction in the number of home runs.”

MLB Handicapping: Los Angeles Dodgers remain tough team to support

04.24.2017     09:10 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There are a handful of teams in MLB that are considered "elite" by the betting markets. Last year's World Series participants, the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, no doubt qualify. Both teams are a combined 20-16 but down nearly -8 units YTD. You can pick and choose your spots and perhaps get creative with the run-line, but betting on those teams straight up on a nightly basis isn't likely to yield much in the way of profits. The same can be said (and some!) for the Los Angeles Dodgers. This past weekend, without a Clayton Kershaw start, the Dodgers were on average -135 road favorites at Arizona (lost two of three). The average price tag on LA through 19 games in a whopping -178. At that price, you'd need to win 104 games just to break even and even though it’s early, LA doesn’t have the look of a 100-win team. The Dodgers also took big money today, jumping from -120 road favorites vs. San Francisco to as high as -150. All told, Los Angeles is nearly 40 games over .500 and down nearly -24 units since the start of 2015 (-20 units on the run-line). And with Kershaw on the hill, 35-16 -0.1 units.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Yankees at Pittsburgh Pirates

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New York (Sabathia) -110 at Pittsburgh (Glasnow) O/U 8
Recommendation: Under

The Pirates couldn’t hit a lick with Sterling Marte in the lineup. Now that he’s been suspended for 80 games, a bad lineup just got worse. Remember, Marte was one of only two outfielders with a +4.5 or higher WAR in each of the last four seasons. Mike Trout is the other. The Pirates have scored two runs in the two games since the suspension was announced.

It's certainly not like this was a particularly potent lineup when Marte was on the field. Pittsburgh has produced two runs or less in half of their last fourteen contests. They’ve yet to have a true offensive explosion, producing more than six runs only once all season.

Pittsburgh has been at their absolute worst offensively against opposing lefties, ranked #28 in MLB in batting average against southpaws (.171) and #29 in OPS (.521). That’s not a tiny sample size either, with a middle-of-the-pack 140 at-bats against lefties thusfar.

CC Sabathia is not a guy I’ll be excited about playing Under the total when it comes to those hot, humid mid-summer Read more

MLB Handicapping: Texas Rangers look to right ship after disastrous road trip

04.20.2017     07:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Losers of five of six, the Texas Rangers (5-10, -5.4 units) open a 10-game homestand tonight against the Kansas City Royals.


"It starts with playing better baseball, period," said Rangers manager Jeff Banister, who spared himself the uglier moments of the day by earning an ejection in the third inning for arguing a fair/foul call on an Oakland grounder. "It starts off the mound and with quality at-bats. We've been challenged in all facets."

"I do feel confident that our guys are going to get going and that we will be able to have a sustained attack," Banister said. "A good offense is one that string innings together. It's the one that is hit-and-miss that is challenging. We haven't been able to sustain much yet. We are going to get this going in the right direction."

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Baltimore Orioles at Cincinnati Reds

Baltimore (Jimenez) at Cincinnati (Garrett) -105 O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Baltimore's Ubaldo Jimenez in theory gets a reprieve tonight by facing a National League team on the road. Unfortunately, that team, the Cincinnati Reds, having one of the hottest offenses in MLB. The Reds have pounded out six runs or more in half of their games including nine in last night's series opening win. The home run has played a big part with at least one in all but two contests. Jimenez continues to trend in the wrong direction with 10 earned runs allowed in two starts. He also flashes an alarming 23-11 GB-to-FB ratio. Not a good sign pitching in Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati counters with rookie Amir Garrett who has looked unhittable thus far with two earned runs allowed in two starts. Garrett's two opponents were favorable as Pittsburgh and St. Louis rank near the bottom of the NL in nearly every offensive category. His stuff is solid but not overpowering and he's also been fortunate with a .182 BABIP and 93% LOB rate. Tonight likely serves as a step up in class at Baltimore's lineup features a handful of capable right-handed bats. Don't Read more
