MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas City (Kennedy) +130 at Seattle (Moore) O/U 9
Recommendation: Kansas City

Kansas City’s push to 41-40 and second place in the AL Central Division has been an absolute jackpot for anyone who saw it coming. Over their last 21 games, the Royals have gone 15-6 and produced a hefty profit of +9.37 units. During this current stretch, Ian Kennedy has taken the hill four times with the team going 4-0 resulting in +4.64 units. The numbers have been good for Kennedy in this streak (2.70 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 19-4 K/BB ratio and only 29 total bases allowed). Home Runs have been problematic for the fly ball prone veteran and but he’s limited the damage of late allowing four solo shots over his last 23.1 IP. Seattle has a potent and dangerous lineup but it figures to be somewhat diminished tonight with clean-up hitter Nelson Cruz nursing a knee injury.

Taking the mound for the M’s will be 23-year-old rookie Andrew Moore whose first career start came 11 days ago on June 22. In that contest he threw seven quality innings against Detroit giving up just three runs and six hits. The 100-pitch effort saw Moore register six Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Yankees at Houston Astros

New York (Pineda) at Houston (McCullers) -165 O/U 8
Recommendation: Houston

The Astros are 12-2 in Lance McCullers 14 previous starts this season, making him #2 in MLB in profitability among big league starters this year, behind only Clayton Kershaw. And there’s absolutely no reason to think that McCullers won’t be a bet-on hurler against the Yankees again tonight.

McCullers dominated this lineup in the Bronx last month, throwing six strong innings of four hit shutout ball. This isn’t new or different – McCullers advanced metric numbers are right there with Chris Sale and Alex Wood, two of the best pitchers in baseball this year. With a strikeout rate of more than 11 K’s per nine innings and a ground ball rate of higher than 60%, McCullers is in truly elite territory. Pitching behind one of the most potent lineups in baseball (21 runs in their just concluded three game set against the A’s), with a rock solid bullpen to close out the game behind him, McCullers is in prime positon to continue his winning ways.

Michael Pineda has one fatal flaw that has doomed him to mediocrity Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays

Boston (Fister) at Toronto (Estrada) -135 O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Under

The last two seasons have been nothing but "extremes" for Toronto's Marco Estrada. In 2016, he pitched to a 3.48 ERA but given his high fly ball rate, was somewhat fortunate to allow only 23 home runs. This year, Estrada's K rate is up, walk rate down, but ERA hovering around 5.00 thanks to a .333 BABIP. If you look at Estrada's career numbers, because he surrenders so many fly ball outs, his BABIP is always amongst the lowest in MLB. So while Estrada's ERA is a run and a half higher than last season, he’s arguably pitched better. Note than one of his best starts of the season came against Boston: 6 IP, 0 ER, 7 Ks. Doug Fister was signed out of necessity due to various injuries to Boston's starting staff. After a career year in 2014 (2.41 ERA), Fister, like a lot of arms north of 30, began to decline. And it made it especially tough for him when he moved from Washington to Houston where last season he finished with a 4.64 ERA and even higher 4.75 FIP. Fister however made a positive impression in his first start -- a favorable one -- where he went 6 Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Washington Nationals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Lester) at Washington (Ross) +100 O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Chicago

We’re seeing a near pick em price range in this matchup where the home team has some significant edges . Let’s start with the fact that the Chicago Cubs just aren’t very good in 2017; a bottom five team in profitability and a .500 team on the field through the first half of the campaign. To make matters worse, the injury bug has been biting, with Kris Bryant sidelined today, joining big bats Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward on the bench. For a squad that has averaged less than three runs per game over the past week, the loss of Bryant certainly isn’t a good thing!

Jon Lester won 19 games last year with a 2.44 ERA. This year, he’s only notched five wins and his ERA is nearly a run and a half higher. What gives? Simple – the Cubs defense behind him is a shell of what it was last year; and that defense is notably worse without Heyward or Zobrist on the field. Last year, his BABIP was .254. This year, when opponents make contact, they’re hitting .304, and much of that difference can be attributed to a defense that Read more

MLB Gambling: The theory behind the new home run era

If you like conspiracies, home runs, and science, then check out fivethiryeight.com's article on the theories behind the supposed "juiced ball."


 The same random manufacturing changes that might have made it bouncier and slicker could just as easily make it stiff and air resistant — bringing back the year of the pitcher, and rendering all our juiced-ball detective work for naught.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Twins at Boston Red Sox

Minnesota (Gibson) at Boston (Price) -200 O/U 10
Recommendation: Over

Kyle Gibson is one of many fringe MLB starting pitchers that has routinely been smacked around this season. He currently owns a 6.23 ERA while allowing 86 hits and 33 walks over 65 innings. Gibson has also surrendered four home runs in his last three starts which is concerning with tonight's outing at Fenway Park. And his inability to go deep into games means the Twins bullpen should get some work tonight; a group that has a 4.90 ERA. This all provies a great chance for the Red Sox to bounce back from last night's 4-1 loss. On the other side, David Price has yet to find his footing since returning to the rotation. Price has allowed three or more runs in five of six starts this season and has failed to go beyond 6 innings in all but one of those games. It’s also worth noting that Price got crushed in his most recent start against the Twins last year wherehe allowed five runs on 11 hits in just 5.2 innings of work right here at Fenway. Not a single Boston starter has pitched more than 6 innings in five consecutive days/games which means the Red Sox pen, for as Read more

MLB Handicapping: Cleveland Indians poised for run, but bettors beware

06.28.2017     11:40 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Cleveland Indians hold only a half-game lead in the American League Central but there are plenty of indications the Tribe will pull away at some point. For starters, Pythagorean W-L records show the Tribe have underachieved whereas the Twins and Royals have overachieved. Based on runs scored and allowed, Cleveland should be 43-33 while Minnesota and Kansas City check in at 33-42. Chicago, which is seven games out, has actually played .500 baseball from a runs score/allowed standpoint while Detroit, slightly worse at 36-40.

One of the main reason Cleveland is poised for better fortunes on the horizon is that nearly the entire starting staff has outpitched its ERA. Check out the numbers below. Bauer, Tomlin, and Salazar all have their faults but have also pitched way better than their ERA suggests.

Corey Kluber: 3.24 ERA, 2.81 xFIP
Carlos Carrasco: 3.67 ERA, 3.51 xFIP
Trevor Bauer: 5.53 ERA, 3.64 xFIP
Josh Tomlin: 6.09 ERA, 4.20 xFIP
*Danny Salazar: 5.40 ERA, 3.57 xFIP

*Salazar currently on the DL but slated to return shortly.

But we're hardly the only ones to spot that Cleveland should be better than its overall record. Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants

Colorado (Freeland) -120 at San Francisco (Blach) O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Expect the ball to be put in play and some this afternoon with Colorado's Kyle Freeland facing San Francisco's Ty Blach. Combined, the two lefties have tossed 167 innings and recorded only 88 strikeouts. And in 48 plate appearances, opposing pitchers have struck out only eight times against the soft-tossing duo. Regression has hit Blach in a big way. Over his first eight starts he flashed a 3.08 ERA including a complete game shutout vs. Philadelphia. Since that outing, he's been tagged for 22 runs in 21.1 innings. Freeland is perhaps a little more protected against a hard regression in that he garners a ton of ground balls (58.5%). But since his hot start (6 starts, 2.65 ERA) he's been far more hittable (9 starts, .295 BAA against, 8 home runs, 4.36 ERA). A few more starts at Coors and a Denver heat wave will be all it takes to see his numbers really start to bottom out. The question, however, is can these two below average offenses take advantage? Temps are expected to be in the low 60's but the wind is blowing out to left center which with two lefties on Read more
