National League Betting News and Notes

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote a brief overview of all fourteen American League teams.  This week, I’ll turn my attention to the National League, with 16 team capsules previewing the upcoming campaign.

The Philadelphia Phillies won 102 games last year, best in the majors by five games over the Yankees and by six games over the Brewers.  Despite that tremendous season, the Phillies weren’t a monster moneymaker for their supporters in 2011, and ¾ of their profits came on the road.  Their 52 home wins barely netted three units of profit.  In a betting marketplace dominated by starting pitching, the Phillies staff of aces left them routinely overpriced; a continuing problem heading into the new campaign.  With a weaker than average everyday lineup as long as Chase Utley and Ryan Howard remain hurt, taking +1.5 on the run line betting against the Phillies cashed in all three games in their season opening series against the Pirates, a potential harbinger of profits to come.

The Atlanta Braves had an 8.5 game lead in the Wild Card race with 23 games remaining last September, prior to their complete late Read more

NBA Handicapping: New Orleans Hornets continue to fight hard under Williams

04.03.2012     02:38 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It is that time of year where tanking in the NBA becomes a hot topic in the media. Whether or not teams actually partake in the activity is a debate for another day. As bettors, finding teams with no shot at the postseason but who continue to play hard has the potential to be a big money maker. It appears we may be able to count on the New Orleans Hornets to do just that thanks to hard-nosed coach Monty Williams. The Hornets have covered five of their last seven games.


“It’s one of those situations that if I say too much right now, I could be sharp with my words,’’ Williams said.

“If you have guys who think these games don’t mean anything, those are not the guys we want going forward,’’ Williams said. “I’ve addressed it. It’s nothing new to our team. Trust me, we’ve seen it, and we’ve seen it here.

“This is the time of the year where you find out who is playing for the right reasons and who isn’t playing for the right reasons. I’m not going to single Read more

American League West Betting Preview

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After coming within a single strike of winning the World Series in both the ninth and tenth innings of Game 6 against St Louis last year, it’s going to be hard for the Texas Rangers to maintain their intensity in 2012.  When you lose the World Series two years in a row there’s not a lot that regular season accomplishments mean.  Their lineup is still absolutely loaded with a nice combination of batting average, speed and power.  Signing Yu Darvish was a key move after losing ace CJ Wilson to division rival LA.  But the bullpen that failed them in October last year has the potential to fail them again this year – new closer, 37 year old Joe Nathan doesn’t seem like a good fit to withstand the Texas summer heat.

There’s no team in the AL that can match the Los Angeles Angels in the starting pitching department.  Jeff Weaver, Dan Haren, Erwin Santana and CJ Wilson have the potential to approach 900 innings between them at an All-Star level.  Angels Stadium is a pitcher friendly ballpark and LA has an excellent defensive unit behind their stellar starting staff.   They’ve got two big bats joining an Read more

MLB Gambling Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates try to climb towards top of NL Central

Pittsburgh Pirates
2011 Record: 72-90
2011 Profits: -1.1 units
2011 O/U: 79-76-7
Pinnacle's 2012 NL Central Odds: +3164
Pinnacle's 2012 Season O/U Wins: 73ov-129

Pittsburgh finished 18 games Under .500, but 15th in the MLB in profits. They were also a modest two games under .500 vs. the Central Division (39-41) but 25-42 vs. other divisions.  87-75 to OVER.  Winning record vs. lefties.  Only 1 game under .500 in one run games = lots of multi-run losses.  Kevin Correia was 18-8 to the OVER.

The 2011 Pirates were in first place in the third week of July, but it was a terrible call by umpire Jerry Meals in the 19th inning of what would end up being a 4-3 loss to Atlanta that set off a 1-11 run and quickly eliminated them from playoff contention. That was their professional-sports-record 19th consecutive losing season.

In the rotation, the arrival of A.J. Burnett – broken orbital bone, out till May – and Erik Bedard – opening day starter – represents an upgrade. Charlie Read more

MLB Handicapping: Philadelphia Phillies could be vulnerable due to age

03.29.2012     12:14 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Philadelphia Phillies are a -135 favorite to win the National League East, the clear cut choice to win the National League +300, and sport the lowest odds to win the World Series (+630). But it doesn't seem so cut and dry when we consider how many aging and injury prone players are on the roster.


According to Nate Silver, "the steepest part of the aging curve -- when a hitter experiences the most manifest decline in his abilities -- tends to come between ages 32 and 34." It can be devastating enough to an offense when two or three hitters enter this period of accelerated decline at the same time. The Phillies are entering it as a team.

The Philadelphia Phillies are coming off their fifth straight season as the top team in the National League East. For the first time in years they’re looking vulnerable, which prompted one scout to Read more

Sportsbooks offer lines on women's college and pro basketball

03.29.2012     08:08 AM     Printer Friendly
Article in ESPN the Magazine about betting on women's basketball – the best example of bet-it-and-forget-it we can think of.


"But in women's college hoops, the disparity between the three or four great teams and everyone else is too big," Kornegay says. "No one wants to bet those games unless it is a marquee matchup. There is no edge."

"Pros assume they are betting something off the beaten path, but we pay attention to it," Kornegay says. "It is just another gambling event we can offer. One in which we all think there is an opportunity."











MLB Gambling Notes: Kuroda's numbers suggest he may struggle at Yankee Stadium

03.29.2012     07:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Great find by ESPN as they pointed out the potential struggles for newly acquired starter Hiroki Kuroda at Yankee Stadium. The left-handed power numbers vs. Kuroda last year were alarmingly high. This of course not a good recipe to have with such a short porch in right field – not to mention tossing in the American League.


Lefties hit 33 fly balls and line drives against Kuroda along the right field line (we started at that line and extended out 15 degrees from that point to define this area). That’s a rate of about one per game.

Those 33 fly balls traveled an average of 315 feet, the furthest for any pitcher in the majors last season. Ex-Yankee A.J. Burnett ranked second, 310 feet.

Why is that particularly worrisome in Yankee Stadium? Remember the distance from home plate to the fence in the right field corner?

It’s 314 feet.

Betting handle on March Madness surpasses Super Bowl

03.28.2012     07:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Reports say that the betting handle generated from March Madness has surpassed that of the Super Bowl in Las Vegas. Not entirely shocking considering how many postseason college basketball games there are for bettors to wager on.


“You take all those games and combine them all, it surpasses what we take in on the Super Bowl,” Kornegay says. “It’s 67 games, as opposed to one game.”

But the state's legalized sports books typically see a $100 million jump in total basketball betting every March, Streshley says.

In 2011, gamblers wagered $256.6 million on college/pro basketball in March vs. $114.3 million in February. With the Big Dance wrapped over by early April, the basketball handle for that month then dropped back to $78.2 million.
