MLB Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Tigers at Houston Astros

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit (Porcello) -170 at Houston (Lyles) O/U 9
Recommendation: Over


Considering the lineup they are carting out there on a daily basis, it is amazing that the Houston Astros rank 7th in the American League in slugging pct. (.413) and 8th in OPS (.730). A lot of that is bolstered by the infamous 16-run explosion vs. Seattle back in early April but overall, the Astros are finding ways to put a decent amount of runs on the board. Detroit's Rick Porcello had a bounce back performance last time out against Atlanta (6.1 IP, 3 ERs) but I watched that start and he was a pitch or two away from imploding yet again. Porcello doesn't have a pitch he can put batters away with and as a result he pitches to a lot of contact (19.1 IP, 28 hits, 8 Ks).

The fact that Jordan Lyles started the season in the minors is a huge red flag. Especially when his competition was Philip Humber (7.58 ERA), Brad Peacock (9.41) and Erik Bedard (8.20). And while manager Bo Porter is Read more

NBA Playoff Betting Recap: Harden huge as Rockets extend series

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

James Harden finally got hot, making his first seven treys on the way to a 31 point outing on only 16 field goal attempts. That helped Houston build a comfortable lead. In desperation, Oklahoma City started fouling Omer Asik to see if “Hack-a-Shaq” and “Hack-a-Dwight” would work on a big guy who actually has decent form, a soft release, and a complete lack of arrogance. Asik would end the night 13 of 18 from the free throw line. Houston would end the night celebrating a 107-100 victory

Houston 107, Oklahoma City 100

2-Point Percentage: Houston 54%, Oklahoma City 53%

3-Point Shooting: Houston 14/35, Oklahoma City 8/33

Free Throws: Houston 25/37, Oklahoma City 20/28

1’s and 2’s: Houston 65, Oklahoma City 76

Rebounds: Houston 42, Oklahoma City 43

Turnovers: Houston 12, Oklahoma City 8

I can’t say that fouling Asik was a horrible gamble at first. The element of surprise Read more

NBA Playoff Betting Recap: Denver wins but Golden State moves to 5-0 ATS

The most entertaining series of the first round what was mostly its first dud. Golden State did rally to give Nuggets fans some nausea…and rallied enough to give Nuggets bettors a punch in the gut as Denver (-8) gagged a big lead in a 107-100 finish.

Dog players who lost New Jersey in a million overtimes this past weekend felt that was owed them. Golden State has topped expectations in all five games in this series. We’ve had some fairly consistent tendencies through the five games. Let’s take a look at that.

Series: Golden State leads 3-2 even though an extra game was in Denver

Two-Point Shooting: Golden State leads 4-1

Three-Point Makes: Golden State leads 5-0 (combined 52-35)

Free Throw Makes: Denver leads 5-0 (combined 117-79, yes +38!)

Rebounds: Golden State leads 3-2 (combined +16)

Turnovers: Denver leads 4-1 (combined +9)

1’s and 2’s: Denver leads 5-0 (combined +31)

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saturday will mark the first time Floyd Mayweather has stepped into the ring since May of last year. He's a prohibitive favorite over WBC Interim Welterweight champion Robert Guerrero. Looking to take advantage of a potentially rusty Mayweather, nearly all of the significant early money has come in on Guerrero. Mayweather opened -900 at LVH Sportsbook but has since dropped to -700.

Eastern Conference Playoff Betting Preview

#1 Pittsburgh Penguins vs. #8 New York Islanders
Series Price: Pittsburgh -380/New York +320


The Pittsburgh Penguins enter the playoffs absolutely spoiled rotten with talent and top tier players. Pittsburgh already had Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, and Pascal Dupuis but that wasn’t good enough for GM Ray Shero who envisions this season as Stanley Cup or bust. Shero pulled off two blockbuster trades before the deadline acquiring Jarome Iginla from the Calgary Flames and Brenden Morrow from the Dallas Stars who both add scoring, grit and leadership to an already stacked squad. Pittsburgh’s defense started the season struggling to keep pucks out of their net but they’ve tightened up their defensive zone play down the stretch and have a good collection of veteran and quality defenseman like Kris Letang, Paul Martin, Douglas Murray and Brooks Orpik. They are hoping to have captain Sidney Crosby back in time for the start of this series. He suffered a broken jaw on March 30th and has been practicing since late last week but has not yet been medically cleared Read more

Western Conference Playoff Betting Preview

#1 Chicago Blackhawks vs. #8 Minnesota Wild
Season Series:  Chicago 2-0-1
Series Price: Chicago -360/Minnesota +300


Chicago Keys:  The Chicago Blackhawks have been one of the best teams in the league throughout the course of the season.  Rarely have they been outmatched and they come into this series with Minnesota rested and healthy.  The knock on Chicago coming into the season was goaltending, but Corey Crawford and Ray Emery have both been superb (winning the Jennings Trophy for fewest goals against).  The Blackhawks are so stacked up front with scorers like Kane, Hossa, Sharp, and Toews, but they also have one of the best supporting casts in the league with forwards like Shaw and Bickell chipping in offense to go with their solid two-way play.  Facing a struggling Minnesota team, Chicago just cannot beat itself.  If they take care of the puck and stay out of the box, their depth and talent will prevail.

Minnesota Keys:  Minnesota faltered big time down the stretch and snuck into the playoffs Read more

MLB Gambling Free Pick: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland A's

LA Angels (Hanson) at Oakland (Straily) -130 O/U 8
Recommendation: Oakland


I’ve been actively fading Tommy Hanson in the month of April. He has struggled in nearly every start and even though his last outing against Detroit looked good on paper, don’t be fooled for a second! Hanson labored immensely allowing six hits in six innings along with just two strikeouts and four walks on 102 pitches. He didn’t allow a run because the Tigers offense was inept that night. They had runners on base in nearly every inning but failed to get that one big, clutch hit with RISP to knock Hanson out of the game early. For the season Hanson has a 4.24 ERA and a porous 1.53 WHIP with a mediocre 8-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He could be in trouble tonight against an Oakland lineup that pounded out nine runs on 12 hits in a confidence boosting come from behind 9-8 win against Baltimore on Sunday. It’s worth noting that Hanson is coming off the bereavement list after the recent death of Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NBA Western Conference Playoffs update

04.29.2013     08:14 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two weeks ago, I broke down the Eastern Conference Playoff Race in this column, concluding (to no surprise) that the Miami Heat are truly deserving of their big chalk, heavy favorite status; clearly the team to beat. 

Last week, I got distracted by the upcoming (at the time) NFL Draft; looking to make my point that draft results hold surprisingly little influence over the opening Week 1 pointspreads, and that every prediction you read or hear about ‘Draft Grades’ is likely to be flawed at best, dead wrong at worst.

That being said, one other factor about the NFL Draft was perfectly clear this past weekend.  The better organizations in the NFL are in much better position to succeed than the weaker organizations.  Which is which?  Look no further than a recent recap of Super Bowl champs to identify ‘good’ organizations – squads with a short and long term plan, and the management team to implement that plan. 

The Ravens, Giants, Packers, Steelers, Patriots, Colts, Seahawks and 49ers are at the top of my ‘quality organization’ list, and you can assume a priori that those eight organizations Read more

Los Angeles -115 at Minnesota O/U 5
Recommendation: Los Angeles


Rarely do you get one of the hottest and best teams in the NHL playing at this short of a price, but that’s what we get tonight when the Kings travel to Minnesota to face a reeling Wild club.  Minnesota has lost eight of its last 11 games and they have been unable to consistently find the back of the net during this time (1.7 goals per game).  Scoring has always been a major problem for the Wild and facing a tough Kings defense tonight is not what the doctor ordered to break them out of their slump.  This is a Kings team starting to get healthier at the right time with the addition of Matt Greene off of the IR.  Don't let the "must win" talk for Minnesota tonight fool you as Los Angeles is just as focused to lock up home ice advantage for the playoffs.  Los Angeles has been winning games of late (4-0-1) with timely scoring, stellar defense, and depth.  They've scored at least one PP goal in eight straight games.  Look for the Kings to continue this push into the playoffs and wear down the Wild tonight at the short Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Memphis Grizzlies at Los Angeles Clippers

Memphis +6 at LA Clippers O/U 180
Recommendation: Memphis


I expect a strong bounce back effort from the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in Game 2 of their Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Los Angeles Clippers. Memphis was not happy as a team about their 112-91 Game 1 loss. Throughout the regular season the Grizzlies boasted one of the best defenses in the NBA but were torched for 112 points on 55.4% shooting.

Memphis was particularly disappointed with its performance on the glass; outrebounded 47-23. Marc Gasol voiced his displeasure about the Grizzlies effort on the boards in Game 1: “That’s not acceptable. Once we made a stop, they kept running in and getting offensive rebounds and second-chance points. We have to be better than that. The rebounds were the difference.” The 23 rebounds in Game 1 were the lowest the Grizzlies have ever had in a playoff game. Facing an 0-2 series hole, I expect a much better effort in the battle for loose balls Read more
