Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: New York Yankees

New York Yankees
2015 W-L:
87-75
2015 O/U:  77-81-4
2015 Profits:  -3.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  86.5
2016 AL East Odds (Westgate):  11/4
Projected Starting Rotation: Masahiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, Michael Pineda, Nathan Eovaldi, Luis Severino
Key Departures:  Chris Young, Adam Warren
Key Additions:  Aroldis Chapman, Starlin Castro

Handicapper's Take: "On the surface, the Yankees look like an aging team that is a few injuries away from finishing .500. But if you look beyond the elder statesmen trio of Rodriguez, Beltran, and Teixeira there's a lot of young talent. Didi Gregorius eventually became a big upgrade over Derek Jeter. I also like the upside of 22-year-old Luis Severino who has the potential to be the best starting pitcher on the staff though his workload will likely be capped at around 150 innings. And unlike past seasons, there's talent waiting in the wings with a handful of players in the Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Bruins at New York Rangers

Boston +110 at NY Rangers O/U 5
Recommendation: Boston


Two Original Six rivals clash in Manhattan tonight as the New York Rangers host the Boston Bruins in a game with big playoff implications . The Rangers have struggled to play consistent hockey for most of this season and have lost five of their last eight games overall. The Bruins have been playing good, solid hockey, earning at least a point in seven of their last 10 contests and holding one of the best road records in the NHL with a 23-10-3 mark. However, they now face-off with a Blueshirts club that protects their "Garden" well with a 24-8-3 record at MSG on the year. New York goaltender Henrik Lundqvist will have to regain his form in order for his club to gain momentum heading into the postseason. The Swedish native has lost five of his last six starts and has allowed three or more goals within the same span. Boston heads into this contest with a bit of a question mark between the pipes as head coach Claude Julien told the media that starter Tuukka Rask is feeling ill and both backups Jeremy Smith and Jonas Gustavsson will both make the trip to NYC. The Read more

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Oakland A's

Oakland A’s
2015 W-L:
  68-94
2015 O/U: 86-66-10 
2015 Profits: -29.4 Units 
2016 O/U Wins: 75.5 
2016 AL West Odds: +1600 
Projected Starting Rotation: Sony Gray, Jesse Hahn, Rich Hill, Chris Bassitt, Kendall Graveman/Sean Nolin
Key Departures: Brett Lawrie, Jesse Chavez
Key Additions: Jed Lowrie, Khris Davis, Yonder Alonzo, Ryan Madsen, John Axford, Marc Rzepczynski, Rich Hill

Handicapper's Take: "There’s a huge difference between the two leagues this year.  In the NL, six teams are essentially out of the playoff race before the season even starts.  Atlanta, Philly, Milwaukee, Cinci, San Diego and Colorado will consider the 2016 season a successful one if they finish at .500.  You could probably say the same thing about the Miami Marlins, although that team has a bit more upside than the other six.  In the NL, there’s a clear dichotomy Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NCAA Tournament Hard Numbers, Not Hype

03.21.2016     12:22 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The insanity that was the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is in the rear view mirror, and the hard numbers show a very different story than the mainstream media is reporting.  Just once, I wish I could turn on Sportscenter and find out what was going on against the spread.  But ESPN doesn’t do that, obviously, nor does CBS, TNT, TBS, TrueTV or any of the other major networks, whether they’re involved with televising the Big Dance or not.  That, of course, leaves a void for me to fill.

Carnage!  Madness! Brackets in flames, in shreds!  That was the message from the networks over the weekend.  Bettors, however, saw a very different story.  Betting favorites, in fact, had a winning weekend against the spread over the first four full days of the tournament.

I threw out all the games where there was no true favorite; games with a pointspread of -1.5 or less.  Many of those games — like Notre Dame vs Stephen F Austin on Sunday; a disastrous result for many books — had a switch of favorites at some point between the opening and closing lines.  Notre Dame +1.5 and Stephen F Austin +1.5 were both Read more

NCAA Tournament Gambling Free Pick: Hawaii Warriors vs. California Golden Bears

03.18.2016     06:55 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Hawaii vs. California -5 O/U 141
Recommendation: California


Oftentimes the college basketball betting markets are so predictable.  Yes, Cal just lost their leading scorer, senior point guard Tyrone Wallace, to a broken hand that he suffered in practice earlier in the week.  And the markets proceeded to do what they do, without a sliver of thought or research.  They hear leading scorer or senior point guard and immediately start betting Hawaii, hand over fist.

All of which leaves us with Cal sitting at --5 as I write this; in a game that has legitimate mismatch potential.  First, let me start with Wallace.  He’s missed five games earlier in the year, and then came off the bench for the next three.  Cal went 6-2 SU, 5-3 ATS in the games that Wallace missed, including wins over Arizona and Oregon, two teams that are FAR better than Hawaii.

How has Cal been able to thrive without their senior point guard before?  Simple – they’ve got a backup who is almost as good.  Sam Singer doesn’t have Wallace’s scoring prowess , but that’s no big deal for a team that has Read more

NCAA Tournament Gambling Free Pick: Iona Gaels vs. Iowa State Cyclones

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Iona vs. Iowa State -9 O/U 166.5
Recommendation: Over


We’ve got two teams that love to run, pushing the pace at every opportunity – this is the highest total (by a fairly wide margin) of the first round for a reason!  And it’s the type of game where the loser can be expected to get into the 80’s, if not higher! Both squads rank among the Top 35 in the country when it comes to tempo; with each team averaging less than 16 seconds per possession.  And when two teams like this get together, it’s a track meet, Throw in the early start time and the mile high altitude and we can expect defense to be optional for extended stretches of this ball game.

The Gaels have scored 78+ in nine of their last ten games; lighting up the scoreboard even against opponents who were trying to slow them down.  When they faced another uptempo opponent – Fairfield, for example – the Gaels scored 91 and lost.  In their first matchup with Monmouth, the Gaels scored 102 in regulation and lost.  In fact, in ten Iona games with a total of 158 or higher, they went 8-2 to the Over; playing even faster than the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Montana Grizzlies at Nevada Wolf Pack

Montana at Nevada -3.5 O/U 138.5
Recommendation: Nevada


Ultra-tough spot for Montana tonight as it travels right back to Reno after losing in heartbreaking fashion to Weber State in the Big Sky Tournament finals. Following the loss, the team was split on whether or not they even wanted to play in a postseason tournament. In the end, they decided to give it a go but it's clear the sting of not making the NCAA Tournament hit this team hard. Now they must go back on the road to uneventful Reno, Nevada and try to get up for the meaningless CBI Tournament. Supporting teams in these secondary tournaments with first-year head coaches isn't a bad profile. Eric Musselman took over a nine-win team and got them to 19-13 and a winning record inside the Mountain West. The Wolf Pack are still without a healthy Marqueze Coleman who was a non-factor in the MWC Tournament. And they've had a difficult time winning by margin this season with three overtime victories and five others by three or less. Nine times out of ten I believe all of the distractions and situationals get tossed out once the whistle blows, but there's a strong potential for a no-show from the road Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How to beat your NCAA Tournament office pool

03.14.2016     10:27 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I could go off on the NCAA Tournament committee for screwing the mid-majors again, something that’s becoming an annual tradition.  But complaining about the committee is akin to complaining about the weather – everybody does it, but it doesn’t help one iota.  Instead, in this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’m going to focus on the casual fan and strategies for winning office pool bracket contests.

It’s bracket time, the annual intrusion every March of the general public into our college basketball sportsbetting world.  And when it comes to filling out brackets, there aren’t many bigger experts than Ed Feng from thepowerrank.com, who I had the chance to interview last week.

Feng is an interesting guy, earning his PhD from Stanford – he’s no dummy.  He’s written for Grantland , Deadspin and Bleacher Report, just to name a few of the sites he’s been affiliated with.  Last year, advanced analytics website FiveThirtyEight.com conducted a study that found Feng’s predictions for the 2015 NCAA Tournament to be the most accurate among their forecasts, culminating in Duke’s Read more

Kansas City Royals
2015 W-L:
  95-67
2015 O/U:  73-75-14
2015 Profits:  + 19.4 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate):  83.5
2016 AL Central Odds (Westgate):  5/2
Projected Starting Rotation:  Yordano Ventura,  Edinson Volquez,  Ian Kennedy,  Chris Young,  Kris Medlen
Key Departures:  Johnny Cueto, Ryan Madson, Ben Zobrist, Jeremy Guthrie, Joba Chamberlain
Key Additions:  Travis Snider, Dillon Gee, Joakim Soria

Handicapper's Take: "Amazingly, the Royals didn't have one elite-level starting pitcher last season. In fact, they won the World Series with a slew of decidedly mediocre arms. Yordano Ventura is only 24 years old and the only starter who has upside/room to grow assuming his slight frame can handle the workload. Ian Kennedy comes over from San Diego and gets to watch the best outfield in baseball track down all of the line drives and fly balls he's bound to surrender. Edinson Read more

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

03.11.2016     11:08 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Notre Dame vs. North Carolina -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Over


Roy Williams always wants his team to play fast, and in neutral court settings, Williams has been an Over machine: 20-7 to the Over in the Tar Heels last 27 neutral site games.  North Carolina really pushed the pace yesterday against Pitt, hanging 88 points on the generally slower paced Panthers.  Perhaps most importantly, North Carolina’s struggling three point shooters – Marcus Paige and Joel Berry – both hit multiple three pointers, enjoying the friendly Verizon Center court.

When these two teams played in the ACC Tournament Championship Game last year, we saw a truly wild shootout, with the Irish winning 90-82.  The old joke about Roy Williams having a tee time set for the Saturday of the ACC tournament – a coach who historically has placed much more importance on the Big Dance than the conference tourney – simply isn’t the case this year.  North Carolina has something to prove and something to gain in this year’s tourney; not a throwaway game for the Tar Heels by any stretch of the imagination this time Read more
