MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies at St. Louis Cardinals

Philadelphia (Hellickson) at St. Louis (Wainwright) -170 O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Over


Not sold on Jeremy Hellickson who did have a good April posting a 1.19 WHIP and a pair of quality starts. The hesitancy toward backing him is that we’ve seen enough of his career to know exactly what he brings to the table and his early 2016 results are a bit better than what can be expected of him. That being said, even less inclined to back Adam Wainwright who has been abysmal thus far and looks to be in the mold of older veteran starter whose best days are behind him and now needs to re-invent himself. His 7.16 ERA through five starts isn’t a skewed number; he has been hit in every outing and has not recorded a game ERA lower than 4.50. Four of his five game WHIP results have been 1.50 or higher and he’s allowed 71 total bases including walks in only 27.2 innings. The St. Louis offense which currently ranks among the best in MLB has certainly come to the aid of Wainwright more often than not this season scoring eight or more runs in three of his five starts. Their MLB leading .845 OPS against RH pitching gives them a strong likelihood of Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: How to Handicap NFL Season Over/Under Wins Part I

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Over the past decade, the NFL betting marketplace has evolved into a year round process. The very first Super Bowl odds for 2017 came out before the Broncos beat the Panthers in the Super Bowl this past February.  CG Technology posted lines for every NFL game through the first 16 weeks of the season prior to the draft.  Week 1 regular season lines are widely available right now.  And the NFL Season Win Total marketplace, while still a long way from maturity, has seen a handful of key shops, like the Westgate Superbook, post virgin numbers in recent days.

My process for handicapping the upcoming NFL season begins immediately after the draft.  This is the time of year to focus on those aforementioned season win totals.  My NFL prep work begins each spring with a thorough look back at last year’s results.

Why look back, you ask?  The answer, of course, is simple – because that’s where I find my very first edges when approaching the upcoming season.  If my base power rating heading into the offseason wasn’t wholly accurate, it results in inaccurate adjustments moving forward.  Part 1 of my process begins Read more

Nyquist favored to win 142nd Kentucky Derby

05.02.2016     08:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on this year's Kentucky Derby favorite, Nyquist, who is unbeaten in seven starts. He's currently around +300 to win.


“Nyquist had a really good morning,” trainer Doug O’Neill said. “He just had an easy jog day today, nothing major. He looked good. Jonny said he felt great. He cooled out great. He seems happy, so we’re happy.

“He’s a little bit more in control. He can be strong. We’ve just learned that with him, it is one day jog, one day gallop. He’ll gallop here Tuesday, so we’ll see.”
