MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers at Houston Astros

05.25.2017     11:26 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit (Verlander) at Houston (Fiers) -125 O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Justin Verlander flashes a decent 4.39 ERA but his walks per 9 innings are up, his strikeouts per 9 innings are down, his ground bell rate sits below 30% and his swinging strike rate is the lowest it has been since 2014. His road ERA also sits at 7.24 with 22 runs allowed in 27.1 innings to go along with 17 walks. Adding to it is the Tigers' mediocre bullpen which has a collective 5.08 ERA this season. With short stints by Detroit starters in the first two games of the series, it really puts the pressure on a declining Verlander to perform. Houston has averaged over five runs per game against righties this season and has the potential to hit that mark and some. Houston's Mike Fiers is an average at best starting pitcher who is capable of being hit very hard. He’s had a very uneven seasonwith a 5.14 ERA on the season and 17 home runs over just 42 innings. Should also note that Fiers owns a fairly strong "reverse split"; solid vs. lefties, very weak vs. righties. That's not an ideal profile vs. Detroit. In the end, I expect Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Texas Rangers at Boston Red Sox

Texas (Perez) at Boston (Sale) -260 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under

Nine of Boston's last 10 games have gone over the total including last night's 11-6 softball score. The lone exception was last week's 3-2 loss at Oakland in which Chris Sale fanned 10 over seven innings but the bullpen coughed one up in the 10th. Sale is back on the hill tonight and we'll look for another lower scoring affair. The numbers thus far are borderline ridiculous with Sale striking out over 13 batters per nine innings. As of today, he's been the most dominant starter in MLB. And he walks into another situation tonight where we can expect stellar results. The Rangers rank in the bottom third in virtually every offensive category vs. lefties including OPS (23rd, .672). And a closer look shows they've faced a fairly soft slate of southpaw starters. When asked to step up in class against Seattle's James Paxton and Kansas City's Danny Duffy, Texas failed to plate a single run over 15.1 innings. Texas counters with Martin Perez who has shown improvement across the board this season. His strikeout rate is up, home run rate down, and over his last three starts Read more

MLB Handicapping: Minnesota Twins doing it with defense

05.24.2017     07:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Remember in Little League when your coach would yell, "just let him hit it" to the pitcher. That is literally what the Minnesota Twins are doing this season. And thanks to a stellar defense, especially in the outfield, the philosophy has worked as the Twins enter tonight's game at Baltimore 24-18. On the season, Minnesota's pitching staff ranks 29th in BABIP (.264), 29th in Ks per 9 (6.84), and 29th in xFIP (4.87).

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Cleveland Indians at Cincinnati Reds

Cleveland (Carrasco) at Cincinnati (Garrett)
Recommendation: 1st 5 UNDER 4.5

The battle for Ohio features one of the biggest over teams in MLB with the Cincinnati Reds (26-16-2 O/U) hosting the under-prone Cleveland Indians (15-23-3 O/U). I advise leaving the bullpens out of the equation this evening and focus in on the starting pitching matchup.

Carlos Carrasco, the 30-year-old Venezuelan flame thrower, has put together an All-Star caliber year with a 2.60 ERA and 0.88 WHIP. His last outing was his worst to date as he allowed five earned runs. It was also his lowest pitch count of the season and he struck out six and gave up only two line drives and four fly balls. Facing the Reds' lineup for the first time this year, he's poised for a strong start.

Opposing Carrasco is the young lefty Amir Garrett who is also coming off a down start. The 6-5 rookie faces an Indians lineup that has really struggled against lefties this year (82 WRc). Garrett has also shown to be comfortable at home with 18 strikeouts and only six earned runs over three starts.

Temps are expected to mild with wind not a factor. Couple that Read more

MLB Handicapping: Colorado's pitching staff thriving under new regime

05.23.2017     09:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on the early success of Colorado's young pitching staff under the watch of manager Bud Black and pitching coach Steve Foster. The Rockies rank third in ground ball rate at 50.1% and eighth in xFIP at 3.96. The one concern moving forward is how the staff is handled the back half of the season once their innings start to pile up. Antonio Senzatela and Kyle Freeland are rookies and Tyler Anderson and German Márquez are in their second season. Jon Gray, who was projected to be the ace of the staff, is slated to return from a broke foot in mid-to-late June.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Pirates at Atlanta Braves

Pittsburgh (Cole) -120 at Atlanta (Foltynewicz) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under

It’s impossible not to like the personal results Pittsburgh's Garrett Cole has posted thus far this season, especially if you subtract his Opening Day start at Boston. He has now recorded eight consecutive quality starts which have produced these numbers: 0.96 WHIP, 2.25 ERA, 4.36:1 K:BB ratio and 15.0 pitches per inning. The latter is very impressive (5 of the 8 starts have been below 15.0) because it indicates Cole has been able to get through a majority of his innings pretty economically. Every opponent he has faced during this stretch ranks in MLB’s Top 15 in OPS (Atlanta, St. Louis Cubs twice, Milwaukee, Cincinnati, Arizona & Washington), five are in the Top 10 and only once has he allowed more than two earned runs. That start was against the Braves back on April 9th in his second start of the season when he went six innings, allowed eight hits (2 HR) three earned runs. It should be noted that three of the eight hits he allowed (1B/2B/HR) were to Atlanta's Freddie Freeman who is now on the DL.

While it’s easy to take on Read more

MLB Handicapping: Bettors pound OVER for tonight's Giants-Cubs game at Wrigley

05.22.2017     07:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When it comes to posting totals in Wrigley Field, weather -- particularly the wind -- is obviously the biggest factor. So it's perhaps a bit of surprise to see CRIS hang 8.5 on tonight's game vs. San Francisco. The wind is coming from the SW which is out to left-center/center field at 12-16 mph. And it's not like there are two premium starters on the hill with Ty Blach taking on John Lackey. The aforementioned 8.5 lasted less than two minutes as bettors pounded the over for the better part of an hour. The market has since settled in at 10ov/10.5. There were five homes runs hit in yesterday's 13-6 Cubs' victory.
