Canadian Football League Betting Free Play: B.C. Lions at Calgary Stampeders

06.28.2013     09:29 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
B.C. +3.5 at Calgary O/U 52
Recommendation: B.C.


There are some extenuating circumstances heading into tonight’s matchup between the BC Lions and Calgary Stampeders. The major one being the recent flooding that has plagued the city of Calgary. On one hand, the Stamps might be bolstered with energy and emotion to play hard and win tonight for the people that have suffered through so much over the last week. Perhaps a solid performance can give them some temporary relief from the devastating flood situation. On the other hand, Calgary’s practice and preparation for this game was altered a bit due to the flood and it leaves a legitimate question; how well prepared and focused can Calgary be with everything that is going on around them?

That is a very real debate I have about this game and it is why my wager is a smaller, free play variety one in this game. However, putting the flood situation aside for one moment, I believe BC is the better of these teams and will be the better team come the end of the season making them worthy of support catching a FG Read more

MLB Betting Free Pick: Cleveland Indians at Baltimore Orioles

Cleveland (Kluber) +120 at Baltimore (Gonzalez) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Cleveland


The Indians have been a streaky team all year, and they’re streaking in a positive direction right now.  They went 18-4 from late April through mid-May, but followed that up with a miserable 4-17 stretch.  Now the Tribe have turned that around, 10-4 in their last 14 ballgames, including four straight series wins and six wins at an underdog price during that span.  Meanwhile, the Orioles are slumping, losers of five of their last six.  And it’s surely worth noting that the vast majority of profits that Baltimore has earned this year have come in the road underdog role, not the home favorite’s role.

Cleveland’s Corey Kluber has notched the win in each of his last three starts, allowing only four runs in 21.2 innings during that span.  His control has been masterful: 69 strikeouts compared to only 13 walks.  And with a .327 BABIP and a 2.98 xFIP, Read more

MLB Gambling Notes: Cincinnati Reds Still Struggling vs. Quality Teams

The Cincinnati Reds just got swept in a quick two-game series in Oakland, losing by a combined score of 12-3. That continues a trend we’ve been discussing on and off this season. The Reds have played very poorly (for a contender) against teams at .500 or better, while absolutely annihilating teams who are below .500.

Let’s run the numbers for the Reds and the other NL Central contenders for some context…

Records vs. .500 or Better

Pittsburgh 18-14

St. Louis 18-15

Cincinnati 15-26

Pittsburgh and St. Louis at least belong in the SuperLeague, even if they’re not dominating within the “best vs. best” matchups. The Reds are showing very poorly in comparison.

Records vs. Under .500

Cincinnati 30-8

St. Louis 30-15

Pittsburgh 30-16

This is why the Reds are in the divisional (and Wildcard) race. They’re doing a great job of taking Read more

I know I promised some baseball for the late Tuesday report. Ended up spending the evening logging college football stuff out of Athlon. Turned into quite the filibuster! So it's midnight ET, and it's probably better to just tweak a prior football report. I re-checked the "Game of the Year" lines from the Golden Nugget so I could add in the mid-majors that were missed in the earlier estimate of market power ratings.

Mid-Majors (the handful mentioned in GOY lines)

Boise State 68 (Mountain West)

Tulsa 63 (Conference USA)

San Diego State 60 (Mountain West)

Navy 55 (Independent)

Nevada 53 (Mountain West)

Colorado State 50 (Mountain West)

Southern Miss 49 (Conference USA)

UNLV 48 (Mountain West)

Central Michigan 47 (MAC)

Army 46 (Independent)

College Football Betting: Wisconsin Badgers loaded with experience

06.25.2013     02:16 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wisconsin boasts the most returning lettermen (83.87%) of any team BCS team according to Phil Steele. The Badgers will be playing under first-year head coach Gary Andersen (Utah State) this season. On the flip side, Big Ten foe Penn State ranks 125th (53.29%) out of 126. As noted by ESPN.com, last year, the top three BCS teams in terms of returning lettermen (Florida, Oregon, and Stanford) all earned BCS bowl berths. Notre Dame, however, ranked 121st, and played Alabama (104th) for the National Championship.

Sportsmemo Handicapper Ian Cameron readies for 2013 CFL Season

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The 2013 Canadian Football League season is just two days away and I plan on writing a weekly blog which can be found right here on Sportsmemo.com throughout the campaign. It will recap the important events of the previous week’s slate and how it will impact things moving forward from a betting perspective. For today’s debut blog, I thought it would be a good idea to discuss some of the differences and nuances between the CFL and the football that most of you are familiar with in the United States. There are several rule differences between the CFL and NFL that should be mentioned to help everyone get familiar with the league especially since there will be plenty of CFL action televised in the United States this season on ESPN2 and NBC Sports Network. I’ll also talk a bit about my own keys to success in handicapping the CFL.

CFL vs. NFL: The key differences between two styles of football
The biggest difference right off the bat is that CFL offenses only get three downs to convert a first down compared to four downs in the NFL. Because of that the CFL is generally a more wide open, passing oriented league. The CFL plays on a 110-yard Read more

MLB Handicapping: Visualizing Outside Your Sample

SportsMemo.com blog entry.

Last time I said I’d try to talk more about pitchers. Something interesting happened in terms of a handicapping danger in tonight's Toronto/Tampa Bay game that makes a point everyone should remember in all sports. This is particularly true a few weeks into the football season…so it’s good to get the theme on the table now during the summer.

Esmil Rogers was making his fifth start of the season for the Toronto Blue Jays. His “first half” runs allowed in his prior four starts had been 0-1-1-0. Great job! It’s only four samples though, so you have to be careful not to get locked in to too tight an assessment of his potential. He’s not THAT good. He was a 27-year old middle reliever a few weeks ago with poor career numbers.

After tonight’s game, the line is 0-1-1-0-4, because he allowed three early home runs in his first bad start.

Jeremy Hellickson of Tampa Bay was coming at things from the other direction in a much larger Read more

College Football Betting: Expectations sky high for Ohio State Buckeyes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It looks like oddsmakers are fairly high on the Ohio State Buckeyes heading into the 2013 campaign. Off last year's 12-0 mark with as many as nine starters back on offense, OSU is a favored to win the Big Ten Leaders Division (-465) and overall conference crown (-110). They are also second behind Alabama to win the BCS National Championship (+800). But nowhere are the Buckeyes' expectations more pronounce than the Golden Nugget's Game of the Year lines. Check 'em out...

Golden Nugget GOY (Openers)
San Diego St @ Ohio State (-21.5)
Ohio State (-21) @ California
Wisconsin @ Ohio State (-11, 45)
Ohio State (-8) @ Northwestern
Iowa @ Ohio State (-23)
Penn State @ Ohio State (-16)
Ohio State (-17) @ Purdue
Ohio State (-23) @ Illinois
Indiana @ Ohio State (-25)
Ohio State (-6, 50.5) @ Michigan

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Baltimore Ravens pegged for regression in 2013

06.24.2013     01:09 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote about the Kansas City Chiefs, using them as the poster child for an NFL team that the betting markets expect significant improvement from in 2013.  This week, I’ll be writing about the Baltimore Ravens, using John Harbaugh’s squad as the poster child for a team the betting markets expect to regress significantly in the upcoming campaign.  Why do the markets disrespect Baltimore so much?  Read on to find out!

Let me start by clarifying exactly how the betting markets aren’t impressed with the Ravens heading into the start of training camp.  The numbers show it clearly.  The defending Super Bowl champs are lined as an 8.5 win team.  Eleven different teams are lined higher (Atlanta, Denver, Green Bay, Houston, New England, New Orleans, the New York Giants, Pittsburgh, San Francisco and Seattle; all lined at nine wins or more).  Chicago, Cincinnati, Dallas and Indianapolis are all lined in the same range (8.5 wins) as Baltimore.  Clearly, from a season wins perspective, the markets aren’t impressed with Baltimore, ranking them as a middle-of-the-pack ballclub.
It’s the same story for Read more

MLB Handicapping: Quick Four-Max Notes on all 30 Offenses

06.24.2013     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

As promised, I’m back with updated numbers from the “four-max” approach of evaluating the volume and consistency of Major League offenses for those of you trying to handicap 5-inning propositions. They generally paint an accurate overall picture of offensive quality too since we’re looking at what teams do with their starting lineups against rotation pitchers on other teams.

I had planned on waiting to post until the first five innings were complete in the Texas/St. Louis game on ESPN…but that’s in a rain delay as I’m typing this. No reason to wait a couple of hours (or more) waiting for that to work itself out. Let’s jump into the numbers.

The keys:

*Only count runs scored in the first five innings

*Stop at 4 for any team in an individual game so volume isn’t polluted by superfluous runs against a guy who didn’t have anything, or against that guy and the lousy long reliever who replaced Read more
