MLB Betting Notes: Yankees Bats Cooling Off

05.30.2013     07:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Through the early part of the season, there was some media coverage about how the “replacement” guys on the Yankees were putting runs on the board in the absence of the big name stars who were injured. That and great pitching helped the Yankees stay in the fight for first place in the AL East even while shorthanded. The Yankees remain only a game out of first place right now after both they and Boston lost Wednesday evening.

Scoring has hit a wall in recent weeks. There are a lot of ways to show that. Since I’m working hard each day to log all the five-inning results from pitching and hitting perspectives…I can show you what the slump looks like through that lens.

*Remember that make-up doubleheader the Yankees had to play in Cleveland where they kind of “traded” gentlemen’s shutouts for a split? The Yanks scored 0 and 1 in the first five innings of those two games.

*New York came home to play Seattle after that. They could only manage Read more

Rugby teams rely on gambling revenue to stay afloat

05.29.2013     12:32 PM     Printer Friendly
Australia's National Rugby League has a pretty interesting relationship with sports betting. For starters, a week doesn't go by where there isn't some sort of scandal involving point shaving or player publically admitting to being a degenerate gambler. There are a lot of folks who want to rid the league of its gambling ties but sportsbooks sponsor various teams – many of which need the revenue in order to remain profitable.


“At a revenue level, more than half of the clubs in the NRL have gambling sponsors. Some gambling companies support two or three teams. If you close off a revenue stream, there needs to be an alternative. Given how much is at stake with gambling, you

NBA Gambling Recap: Indiana Pacers rebound, tie series 2-2

Literally! Indiana won the rebounding battle 48-30, and used extended late possessions thanks to offensive rebounds to score the game winning points in the final moments.

We haven’t had a chance to talk about the “Imposing of Will” stat during this series…because Indiana’s inside defense really hadn’t been very impressive. Tonight, they held Miami to 41% on two-point baskets, while also allowing the Heat to only grab 38% of the game’s rebounds. THAT’S what we had gotten used to seeing in the Knicks series:

Imposing of Will (lower is better)

Indiana 79, Miami 119

An absolute slaughter in the stat. But, telling in its own way that Indiana was still playing a nailbiter with a couple minutes to go even with that edge in the “defense and rebounding” numbers.

Let’s check the numbers for the series. Again, this is two-point shooting percentage allowed, plus rebound percentage Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Getting a leg up on betting the 2013-14 NFL season

05.28.2013     10:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I’m writing this column over Memorial Day Weekend, nearly two and a half months before the NFL preseason kicks off with the Hall of Fame Game on August 4th and a full three and a half months before the start of the regular season.  And yet NFL betting numbers for the upcoming campaign are becoming more and more widely available; once again proving quite clearly that the NFL is King when it comes to sports betting.

The single most profitable set of wagers that I’ve found in my 15 years as a professional bettor living in Las Vegas are NFL Season Win totals.  Super Bowl odds, and odds to win divisions or conferences only give bettors one choice – betting ON a particular team.  Then that team has to beat out all of their competition to win the division/conference/Super Bowl for you to cash, offering big payday longshot returns, but cashing a very low percentage of the wagers that are made.

NFL Season Win totals, on the other hand, offer bettors the opportunity to bet AGAINST teams from a macro perspective.  And with win totals, you don’t have to worry about the competition, even when betting Overs.  For example, the Read more

NBA Betting Recap: San Antonio Spurs take commanding 3-0 series lead

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Last night we talked about how Game Two of Indiana/Miami looked so much like Game One. Tonight, we get to do the same thing in the Western Conference finals…as Game Three in Memphis looked very much like Game Two in San Antonio.

*Home Team jumps out to big lead

*Visitor rallies

*Game goes to overtime at 85-all in G2, and 86-all in G3

*Spurs know what to do in overtime

What jumped out to me watching tonight was how Memphis WASN’T Indiana. You just didn’t see the same fire in their eyes…the same sense of urgency, even though the Grizzlies were already playing with their backs to the wall tonight while Indiana was just trying to break serve. Also, Indiana made its free throws last night, while Memphis gagged way too many with their season on the line this evening.

San Antonio 104, Memphis 93 (in overtime)

2-Point Percentage: San Antonio 55%, Memphis 40%

3-Point Shooting: San Antonio Read more

NBA Betting Recap: Indiana Pacers even up series (plus MLB notes)

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

If home court advantage is worth anything, then the Indiana Pacers have been the better team in BOTH of the games played so far in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Now…home court may end up not meaning much of anything in this series when it’s all said and done. The overall median for the playoffs is still at just two points. And, Miami is known for being very strong on the road. We may be looking at a series of virtual coin flips, with neither team being shaken by the opposing crowd. The near equivalent of a best-of-seven on neutral courts.

Miami better HOPE that’s the case. Because Indiana has been GREAT at home in the playoffs! I’m not going to fall into last year’s trap of making assumptions early in this matchup. We’ve talked about this a lot already. Miami teases you, then breaks your heart if you’re rooting for them to lose.

Let’s run the numbers from Friday night, then review the categories that have been the Read more

MLB Handicapping: Are the Washington Nationals Really 80% to Miss the Playoffs?

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

It’s only May 23, but ESPN’s standings page is showing that the preseason favorite to win the National League is now 80% to MISS the playoffs entirely.

NL East Chance to Make Playoffs (typed up moments before posting)
Atlanta 90%
Washington 19.9%
Philadelphia 11.4%
NY Mets 3.4%
Miami 0.1%

Can that be true?

In favor of the skepticism:

*Washington has a run differential of -26, even though they’re won-lost record is 24-23. I think the sabermetric world pays way too much attention to that particular number. But…the Nats really are WAY off the pace for what a championship contender should be doing.

*Washington is 5-1 against the horrible Miami Marlins, a virtual expansion team in their own division. That means they’re 19-22 against the rest of the league. Washington was +16 in run differential in those wins, which means they’re Read more

MLB Betting News: Chicago's John Danks makes his return

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami (Koehler) at Chicago WS (Danks) -175 O/U 7.5

Chicago's John Danks is only 28 years old yet as he prepares to make his first start in over a calendar year the consensus is that Danks will need to reinvent himself in order to survive at the MLB level. The Chicago Tribune essentially said Danks is going for the Mark Buehrle 2.0 look. Velocity isn't as vital coming from the left side but bouncing back from shoulder surgery is no easy task. We strongly recommend bettors take a wait-and-see approach.


"His cut fastball was effective against right-handed hitters, and he also used it against lefties," Phegley said. "He also mixed in his curve and changeup.

"He threw his curve for strikes, although he wasn't completely satisfied with it at times. His changeup always has been a big pitch for him, and he was very

MLB Betting Notes: Different year, similar results for Minnesota's starting pitching

05.23.2013     02:03 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We talked about Minnesota's crappy pitching on today's Sportsmemo Podcast (listen here). Hardball Talk to a closer look at the numbers compared to last year. The team’s 4.2 strikeouts per 9 innings rate is one that stands out as horrendous/comical. Tomorrow they send Samuel Deduno to the hill who unlike Pelfrey, Worley, and friends, has legitimate MLB stuff. The only problem is Deduno doesn't know where it's going and last season admitted as such. In 84.2 big league innings, he's walked 57 batters.

Also funny is in mid-May of last year we posted a blog on how bad Minny's starting pitching had Read more
