03.21.2017     09:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors need to familiarize themselves with Atlanta's new SunTrust Park. Compared to Turner Field which was generally considered "neutral", the power alley fences are shorter though a 16-foot fence covers all of right field. Here's an amateur take on how the wind could impact the park throughout the season.

MLB continues to consider possibility of sports betting

02.27.2017     09:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Major League Baseball continues to be open to the idea that sports betting isn't such a bad thing.


“We have done some research on how gambling relates to fan engagement. There’s a lot of information for example in Europe where it’s much more common in terms of legalized gambling.

I think from our perspective, from baseball’s perspective, it’s clear there’s a conversation about gambling that’s ongoing. [NBA] Commissioner Adam Silver has been very articulate about posing the issues.

And I think it’s incumbent upon us to make sure we understand what the facts are, what kind of legalized gambling are you talking about, how would it be regulated, what are the threats to the integrity of the sport. And make sure the institution is in a position to deal with whatever roads come down the road.”

MLB Handicapping: Chicago Cubs could be good team to fade during spring training

02.14.2017     10:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
MLB spring training starts next week which means plenty of betting opportunities. One team that should draw a lot of interest is the Chicago Cubs who are off of last year's historic World Series title. The Cubs are obviously in position to contend again in 2017 and Joe Maddon has already made it clear that they won't attempt to hit the ground running. Note that in Maddon's first season in Chicago, the Cubs went 15-17 in spring training and only 11-19 in 2016.


“I’m going to be really aware of resting people,” Maddon said at the winter fan convention. “I am. You hear me say it all the time. There are natural reasons built in to rest people. I really want to be cognizant from the beginning of not stepping on anyone too hard.”

MLB appears down with sports betting

02.09.2017     09:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred has seemingly joined NBA commissioner Adam Silver in the crusade to accept, legalize and regulate sports betting.


“There is this buzz out there in terms of people feeling that there may be an opportunity here for additional legalized sports betting,” Manfred told Yahoo! Finance on Wednesday. “We are reexamining our stance on gambling. It’s a conversation that’s ongoing with the owners.”

Super Bowl LI Prop Bet Pick: Luke Bryan National Anthem Length

02.03.2017     09:20 AM     Alex Smith     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Alex Smith

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Luke Bryan National Anthem UNDER 2:16
Country Star Luke Bryan will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the third time at an official sporting event and fourth time overall inside a sports venue. He sang in 2008 before the Titans/Browns game on a cold December day with lots of reverb, clocking in at 1:43. Then he opened up the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City with a rendition that went exactly two minutes, and drew a bit of criticism, as he had the lyrics written on his hand to avoid missing any words. Bryan was the first person to ever sing the anthem in US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings (and ironically the venue for next year's Super Bowl) to open his concert back on August 20, in a very classic, slow tempo that registered at 2:29. We've seen the last 10 anthems clock in at an average of 1:58, and the last male singer to perform was 10 years ago, when Billy Joel sang at Super Bowl 41 in Miami in 90 seconds. While we've seen many female vocalists draw out the anthem with late vibrato riffs, I expect more of a straightforward approach from the Georgia native. Play this one under.

MLB Handicapping: Cubs clinch, eye getting starters rest remainder of regular season

09.16.2016     10:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Betting the Chicago Cubs the remainder of the regular season could be tricky. After clinching the NL Central and having a firm hold on the league's best record, manager Joe Maddon said that rest will be the most important thing leading up to the playoffs. Bettors can expect a lot of significant line moves with the probability of varying lineups the remainder of the month. Checking Twitter and any websites for daily lineups a must.


"Resting guys who might have more dings, that would be No. 1 for me," Maddon said Thursday. "I have ideas with that."

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Seattle Mariners at Chicago White Sox

Seattle (Paxton) -140 at Chicago (Ranaudo) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Seattle


The Chicago White Sox host the Seattle Mariners tonight for the opener of a four-game series. A couple key metrics point to the M’s snapping their two-game skid vs. a struggling pitcher for the White Sox. Anthony Ranaudo will be making his third start since being acquired from Texas and first since escaping with a no decision at Cleveland on Aug. 17 -- five runs and eight hits allowed in four innings. The 26-year-old native of New Jersey has yielded eight runs and 10 hits, including four homers, over 10.2 innings in his two outings with Chicago. He will be opposing James Paxton, the hard throwing Canadian lefty who is making his first start coming off the disabled list. He had a promising start with three strikeouts in three innings for Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday. Reports stated that Paxton's command and velocity were good. Paxton is someone with a ton of upside but over the course of a full season, will lose his mechanics and thus struggle. But when he's on, the stuff is as good as any lefty starter in the game. Prior to a quick stint on the DL, Paxton put together Read more
