MLB Handicapper Free Play: Baltimore Orioles at Boston Red Sox

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore (Jimenez) at Boston (Peavy) -155 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Boston


The Orioles will send the enigmatic Ubaldo Jimenez to the bump.  The one time flame-thrower has been up and down for much of the last three seasons. His velocity has dramatically fallen since his days with the Colorado Rockies.  As a rookie in 2007, Jimenez’s fastball averaged 97 mph. This year’s fastball is hovering in the low 90’s. From 2008-10, Jimenez threw 630 innings – half of which in Coors Field where pitchers are stressed even more than normal in order to gain movement in the thin air. Jimenez is also quirky with his mechanics and rarely goes three of four consecutive starts without some sort of issue. The dip in velocity and poor mechanics are directly tied to his current 7.31 ERA. Boston’s lineup led the league in runs scored last season en route to a World Series title.  They’ve been slow out of the box in 2014 (24th runs scored, .345 slugging) but have Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Seattle Mariners at Miami Marlins

Seattle (Elias) -115 at Miami (Alvarez) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Seattle


This will be the second straight start I've supported Seattle's Roenis Elias, a talented left-hander making his first run through the league. Elias has an above average fastball (92-93 mph) and good command of his off-speed offerings. He's probably been a bit fortunate and may run into trouble at times when teams get a second and third look but he's got legitimate American League middle-of-the-rotation stuff which is more than I can say for his counterpart, Miami's Henderson Alvarez. Despite being an extreme groundballer, Alvarez is very hittable having allowed 25 hits in 14.2 innings this season. His BABIP suggests some of that was bad luck but it is his overall splits point towards continued struggles vs. the Mariners. Because of his sinkerball ways, Alvarez gives right handers a tough time (.253/.292/.385). But against lefties, he really struggles (.291/.354./.470). Seattle has the ability to send as many as seven Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Toronto Blue Jay at Cleveland Indians

Toronto (Hutchinson) at Cleveland (Masterson) -140 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over


When the mechanics of a bigger, taller pitch go awry, it can become a very difficult process of getting back to "normal." Cleveland's Justin Masterson isn't "right" and as a result his velocity is way down, his control is out of whack, and he's gotten pounded around in back-to-back starts (10 earned runs). I've bet a ton of Masterson's games over the last few seasons – on, against, under, and over – and these swoons of good and bad pitching have a tendency to go from extended stretches. Toronto's Drew Hutchinson has some upside with strong performances against Tampa and Baltimore. In looking at the young right-hander's numbers, we see the traditional right/lefty splits. Notice that his lone bad start of the season (3.1 IP, 6 ERs) came in New York against the Yankees who can stack the lineup with a slew of left-handed bats. Cleveland has that ability as well so I expect the Read more

MLB Betting: Milwaukee's Gallardo has been sharp through three starts

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Milwaukee (Gallardo) at Pittsburgh (Volquez) -110 O/U 7

Good article on FanGraphs about the reemergence of Milwaukee's Yovani Gallardo. Working with slower velocity than year's past, Gallardo is morphing into more of a groundball (53.6% YTD) pitcher. Through three starts he's posted a 0.96 ERA and 2.13 FIP.


In fact, his 2014 ground-ball rate is essentially identical to that of Justin Masterson, one of the quintessential sinker-ball pitchers in Major League Baseball right now. He’s throwing his fastball more often than he has in recent years, but more specifically, he’s throwing his curveball less often. He’s almost strictly been a fastball-slider pitcher this year, which has been a huge part of his increased ground-ball rate.

MLB Handicapping: Philadelphia's Burnett will pitch despite injury

Atlanta (Wood) -130 at Philadelphia (Burnett) O/U 7.5

Feeling the need, at 37 years old, to be a hero, Philadelphia's AJ Burnett will attempt to pitch the remainder of the season with a hernia. Burnett says he "felt pain just twice" during a recent bullpen session. He's also walked 12 batters in his last two outings.


"I'm going to have to deal with it," Burnett said. "Paying attention to it, knowing it's there, knowing what I can do to overdo it and knowing what I can do to keep it where it needs to be. I'm more of a go-getter and I'm not really a take-it-easy kind of guy, so it's going to be a test."

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles

Tampa Bay (Odorizzi) at Baltimore -105 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Over


Tampa Bay and Baltimore get together tonight for their second game of the series.  Last night saw the Orioles lay the lumber on young Tampa Bay starter Chris Archer.  The O's strung together 12 hits over his five innings and the result could have been much worse than the 7-1 final.  Baltimore has been swinging the bat well to start the season as they are second in the AL with 121 hits, but their main problem has been discipline at the plate.  They should be able to see plenty of pitches tonight from Rays starter Jake Odorizzi.  Odorizzi had a terrible outing in Kansas City last week giving up 10 hits and 7 earned runs in just 5 innings.  He's struggled to find the plate in both his starts averaging over 17 pitches per inning.  Baltimore counters with Miguel Gonzalez on the mound who hasn't been much better.  In fact Gonzalez has given up 10 earned runs already in just his 9.1 Read more
