MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at Philadelphia Phillies

06.14.2017     09:50 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston (Johnson) -125 at Philadelphia (Hellickson) O/U 10
Recommendation: Boston

Despite being 21-42 as a team, the Philadelphia Phillies are 9-4 when Jeremy Hellickson toes the rubber. Hellickson started the season strong (1.80 ERA first five starts) but has been exposed in a big way of late. Over his last eight outings, Hellickson has been pounded to the tune of a 6.43 ERA and 12 home runs allowed. He also sports an alarming 22/17 K-to-BB ratio. He's simply not fooling anyone and is tasked with facing an above average American League lineup tonight.

Boston is priced rather cheaply tonight because unproven rookie Brian Johnson is on the bump. Johnson, a former first round pick, has been serviceable with a 3.44 ERA and 16/4 K-to-BB ratio in three starts. And his Minor League stats (2.61 ERA over 471 IP), suggest he'll be able to get MLB hitters out at a decent rate. My issue with Johnson is that he's not a big swing-and-miss arm and tends to give up a lot of fly balls. That's not ideal tossing in Fenway against the American League but in this spot, even in a hitter friendly park, he has a good chance to post a Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Dodgers at Cleveland Indians

Los Angeles (McCarthy) +140 at Cleveland (Kluber) O/U 8
Recommendation: Los Angeles

The Cleveland Indians host the Los Angeles Dodgers tonight at Progressive Field. Corey Kluber takes the hill for the Tribe; his ninth start of the year and third since being activated from the DL. Last time out, Kluber went six innings and allowed three runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts against the White Sox. It was a very favorable matchup and the second time this season Kluber rolled through Chicago's lineup. In fact, if you eliminate Kluber's two outings against the White Sox, his ERA is an alarming 5.50 over seven starts.

Brandon McCarthy doesn't always get the respect he deserves because he's so injury prone. But when healthy, his stuff grades out as well above average. Note that his average exit velocity against, according to Statcast, is 84.4 mph. That ranks seventh-best out of 146 starters with at least 100 balls put in play. McCarthy has been throwing a cutter at a much higher rate this year which has significantly helped his ability to tame left-handed bats.

Cleveland is one of the most over-priced teams in Read more

MLB Handicapping: League-wide home run rate continues to climb

06.13.2017     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Look across the MLB slate for today. What do you notice? For starters, only one game -- in San Francisco -- is lined below 8. Three games are lined 10 or higher and Colorado and Arizona are on the road. Marcus Stroman is hitting opposite field bombs. Justin Smoak is closing in on his career high in dingers...through 62 games. Last night, Nick Markakis, who has previously hit one home run, took Stephen Strasburg deep to the opposite field. Seriously, what the hell is going on? We know what's going on: MLB did something to the baseball and it's resulted in an incredible rise in home run rate. Surprisingly, "overs" have only hit at around 52.5% -- but that number is obviously skewed some as a majority of totals over the last month plus have been bet and thus closed higher. One would think we're approaching a tipping point but the weather is only going to get warmer meaning balls will be flying even further over the next three months.


Baseball is on its 15th consecutive regular-season month with a higher home-run rate on contact than the previous

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies at Pittsburgh Pirates

Colorado (Freeland) +123 at Pittsburgh (Taillon) O/U 9
Recommendation: Colorado

Pittsburgh’s Jameson Taillon will be back on the hill tonight in what’s likely to be a more emotional moment than your ordinary return from the DL. Early money is showing strong support for Pittsburgh’s prized righty has soared from a -119 opener to -132. Taillon has said that he is 100% mentally and physically heading into this start and he claims to be as sharp as he’s been all year. He stretched out to 97 pitches over six innings in his final rehab start last Wednesday so it appears as if all systems are go. Colorado rookie Kyle Freeland has successfully pitched to contact thus far. Freeland’s 49 strikeouts in 76 innings are underwhelming but his 127 ground ball outs and 57.5% ground ball rate have propelled him. There are some peripherals that suggest season long success isn’t likely sustainable but he’s been pretty economical to this point averaging six innings and 15.5 pitches per inning. Nine of his past 10 starts have been quality by definition.

It’s pretty easy to find indicators that Read more

MLB Betting Update: Chase Field humidor still pending

06.12.2017     08:01 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Still no official word on when the Arizona Diamondbacks plan to use its proposed humidor. The latest update indicate it could happen before the All-Star Break. Through 35 games, totals are 21-12-2 O/U at Chase Field. The average total is 9.5. The average score is 10.46.


"No ball is allowed to be brought out unless it's been there for two weeks," GM Mike Hazen said. "And if they come out and don't get used they have to go back in there. Major League Baseball oversees that."

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at New York Yankees

Boston (Price) +105 at New York (Pineda) O/U 8
Recommendation: Boston

David Price spent the first two months of the season on the DL following an elbow strain in spring training. His first start back in the big leagues was a little bit rusty, lasting only five innings against the White Sox. Last time out, Price threw a seven inning gem against the Orioles, allowing just three hits in the process.

All the postgame quotes following that contest scream "bet on" for David Price moving forward. Price: "I felt good. Just trying to make better pitches. I don't want to be out there throwing 100 pitches or 90 pitches through five innings. I was back to being efficient, getting a lot of early outs and not giving up a whole lot of runs." Red Sox manager John Farrell: “He was outstanding. He was in complete control, and he got into a great rhythm.” Orioles manager Buck Showalter, after his team got dominated: “He’s one of those guys who’s adding pitches as he goes on in his career. He’s one of the best.”

Michael Pineda has a value problem. His advanced metric stats are elite, Read more
