World Cup Gambling: Anti-betting ad a game away from backfiring

07.10.2014     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The intentions were right – problem gambling is nothing to joke about – but you have to chuckle over a Singaporean anti-gambling ad that featured a kid who was bummed out by his dad's big bet on Germany to win the World Cup. Cheer up, little guy, your pops is live! Germany is currently a short favorite to beat Argentina for Sunday's title game.

NBA Handicapping: Bettors play guessing game with LeBron's destination

07.08.2014     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As nauseating as it is to follow the coverage of LeBron James' free agent saga it has had an impact on the betting markets. Anticipating a potential move back to Cleveland a few Las Vegas bettors jumped in on the Cavs to win next year's NBA title. The MGM reportedly took a dime bet that helped drop the line from 40-1 to (geesh) 10-1. A slightly less knee-jerk reaction at LVH with Cleveland's odds now 30-1 after opening 60-1. Note that the MGM was the same sportsbook that at one point had the USMNT at 10-1 to win the World Cup.


"They are our biggest liability right now," said MGM VP of Race and Sports Jay Rood. "We took a dime ($1,000) on them at 40-1."

MLB Betting News: Astros come back down to earth in a big way

07.07.2014     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On June 14, the Houston Astros beat Tampa Bay 7-3 to move to a respectable six games under .500 and more importantly a profitable mark for their supports. But over the last three weeks, they've regressed in a major way. Check out some of the team's numbers during their last 20 games.

Record: 4-16
Team ERA: 5.36
Team BA: .219
Team OBP: .282
Team OPS: .620
Team Strikeouts: 204
Team Walks: 53


The schedule during that 20-game span wasn't easy with games against Washington (2), Tampa Bay (5), Atlanta (3), Detroit (3), Seattle (3), and Los Angeles (4). It lightens some over the next two weeks with three-game series vs. Texas, Boston, and Chicago. No doubt this squad is better than last year’s edition but this current slide has certainly put out the fire of their early season “success.” Note that the Astros finished last season’s second half 18-50.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Dodgers

Cleveland (Bauer) at LA Dodgers (Ryu) -150 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Under


If you've read these pages before you know that I am a big fan of Cleveland’s Trevor Bauer who is starting to show more consistency to go along with his swing-and-miss stuff. I think he'll benefit from pitching in a National League park this afternoon as well as it being the Dodgers first-ever look at the hard throwing righty. Hyun-Jin Ryu has been as consistent as they come churning out quality start after quality start this season. Asian pitchers are notoriously tough in first-look situations as not one current Indians player has an AB vs. Ryu. The Tribe has also had a difficult time hitting lefties this season with .244/.313/.350/.663 splits hence their 10-16 record vs. southpaws. This is a true getaway day situation with the afternoon start, LA headed to Colorado, and Cleveland with an off day on Thursday before returning home for a 10-game homestand. Let's play this one UNDER the total.

CFL Handicapper Free Play: Toronto Argonauts at Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Toronto -7 at Winnipeg O/U 55.5
Recommendation: Under


I am a little puzzled by the move toward the Over this morning with this total getting pounded from 53.5 to as high as 55.5 in many locations. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have a brand new starting QB in Drew Willy and although he has talent and plenty of potential, we are still talking about someone who was a backup in Saskatchewan for the last couple years and will be making his first start. Toronto has some holes to fill defensively and they also have a new DC in Tim Burke. The Argos lost key veteran CB Pat Watkins while also saying goodbye to DL Khalif Mitchell and two solid LB’s Robert McCune and Marcus Ball. However given Winnipeg’s offensive makeup to start the campaign it shouldn’t be as big of a challenge for the revamped Argos defense.

On the flip side, Toronto's strength is its offense with veteran QB Ricky Ray who in 2013 completed a ridiculous 77% of his passes. The line move suggests bettors feel Toronto’s offense will roll in this matchup but Winnipeg has upgraded their talent on defense and there really is nowhere to go but up. Winnipeg’s new Read more

College Football Handicapping: Switching conferences

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good breakdown on ESPN.com of the history of college football teams switching to new BCS conferences – West Virginia (Big East to Big XII) and Texas A&M (Big XII to SEC) two recent examples. In most situations the step up in class resulted in poorer results the first year – Utah, TCU, and Missouri good examples. This year, Rutgers and Maryland join the Big Ten.

College Football Gambling: Rutgers puts offense in hands of Friedgen

06.24.2014     02:10 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rutgers’ Kyle Flood enters the all-important third season as head coach as the team moves from the AAC to the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights went 9-4 in Flood's first season but dropped to 6-7 in the AAC a year ago. In hopes of bolstering the offense – and developing turnover prone quarterback Gary Nova – Flood hired former Maryland head coach Ralph Friedgen to serve as offensive coordinator. Rutgers will be playing in the Big Ten's East Division which means games against Michigan, Michigan State, and Ohio State. They also drew Nebraska and Wisconsin for their two contests vs. the West.


"The thing that's most exciting to me about watching him offensively is to see the multiplicity of where he puts the pieces," Flood said.

"To be a really high quality pro-style offense it doesn't mean you line up with two backs in the backfield in the I the whole game. It should be a multiplicity of personnel groups. It should be a multiplicity of formations, shifts, motions.

"By the end of spring I began to see

MLB Handicapping Free Play: Houston Astros at Tampa Bay Rays

Houston (Keuchel) +105 at Tampa Bay (Bedard) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Houston


The Houston Astros will send southpaw Dallas Keuchel and his 2.63 ERA to the hill this afternoon. There’s nothing fluky about Keuchel’s stellar ERA this season (2.95 xFIP). He also sports a 3.6:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio and an MLB-best 63.7% groundball rate among qualified starters. The major reason for his massive step forward has been the development of a plus slider which has been his go-to strikeout pitch. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay’s Eric Bedard was roughed up in his last start against Baltimore – a common theme and one that can be expected to continue this afternoon.  Bedard obviously doesn’t have the stuff he once possessed with a fastball that barely tops out at 90 mph and a slider with minimal bite. He’s currently showing a 4.33 ERA but that number is really iffy moving forward. Note too that Bedard has been a fly ball pitcher for much of the season and yet Read more

Milwaukee (Gallardo) -115 at Arizona (Anderson) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over


It has without a doubt been a struggle for Yovani Gallardo this season but even after a pair of good outings against Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, I'm not ready to declare that he's righted the ship. Gallardo has an overall ERA of 3.51 but a FIP of 4.28 which is almost a run higher. His performance against the Pirates in particular where he threw 7 scoreless innings needs to have an asterisk placed next to it because both teams that day were rushing at the plate because the game was threatened to be delayed due to rain. Gallardo allowed 4 runs or more in back-to-back road starts prior to that outing in Pittsburgh and he's allowed 34 hits and struck out just 22 in 35 innings pitched on the road. Arizona scored 7 runs on 13 hits in 12 innings in the two times they faced Gallardo last season and should be in for some offensive success today. On the flip side, Chase Anderson gets the call for the Diamondbacks and he's Read more
