NBA Playoff Betting News: Oddsmakers make big adjustment to total for Game 5

05.23.2018     09:26 AM     View Original Blog
Looks like oddsmakers really adjusted their numbers off of Houston's low scoring 95-92 win last night. Game 4's total closed 227.5 at CRIS. Game 5's total opened 219. That's six points lower than any of the seven previous regular and postseason meetings.

Regular Season
10/17: Houston 122, Golden State 121 - OVER 230.5
1/4: Golden State 124, Houston 114 - OVER 231
1/20: Houston 116, Golden State 108 - UNDER 237.5

Playoffs
5/14: Golden State 119, Houston 106 - UNDER 225.5
5/16: Houston 127, Golden State 105 - OVER 225

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels at Toronto Blue Jays

05.23.2018     09:46 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Los Angeles (Skaggs) -118 at Toronto (Sanchez) O/U 9
Recommendation: Los Angeles

Tyler Skaggs has been solid entering this contest with a 2.88 ERA. He’s surrendered only five runs in his last 17.1 innings of work. Skaggs has a sparkling 1.14 ERA on the road allowing three runs in 23.2 innings of work and the Angels are 3-1 in his four road starts. His control has improved and now he gets to face a Blue Jays lineup that has been inept against lefty pitching as Toronto is hitting a collective .226 against southpaws. On the flip side, Aaron Sanchez for Toronto has struggled to the tune of a 5.68 ERA in his last three starts and a 5.06 ERA in five home starts. His command has been off issuing an average of over five walks per 9 innings on the season and Toronto is only 3-6 this season in Sanchez’s nine starts driving up his pitch countand forcing a mediocre Jays bullpen into action earlier in the games he starts. The Angels are a phenomenal 14-5 on the road this season while the Blue Jays are currently in the midst of a nasty 2-7 losing skid in their last 9 games sending them below .500 for the first time this season. Toronto did get themselves in the win column last night in the series opener against the LA Angels but they got five early runs in the first inning and nothing after that. It’s surely worth noting four of the Blue Jays runs they scored in the inning were unearned and caused by a terrible error made in right field by Chris Young which is not necessarily a sign of an offensive breakout for a Blue Jays squad that had been struggling at the plate prior to last night. I look at this spot and pitching matchup as one that favors LA making the Angels worthy of betting support in this game as short road chalk.

Atlantic City's Borgata ready to accept sports bets

05.23.2018     09:41 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Atlantic City's Borgata Casino (owned by MGM) has a sportsbook in place and is ready to accept wagers once the green light is given. There are already talks of a new $7 million sportsbook eventually being built as well. An issue that has popped up however is that MGM owns the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces which to outsiders looks like a conflict of interest. It's one of many instances in which a casino/sportsbook has financial ties to a professional sports team.


“As soon as regulatory approvals are in place, we will begin taking sports wagers,” Borgata President Marcus Glover said to the Associated Press. “Borgata is uniquely prepared to begin operations as the only Atlantic City casino with an existing racebook.”

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Kansas City Royals at St. Louis Cardinals

05.22.2018     09:42 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas City (Hammel) at St. Louis (Weaver) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: St. Louis -1.5 -120

Jason Hammel has no business as a regular starter in Ned Yost’s rotation. The 35-year-old veteran has bounced around with the Rays, Rockies, Orioles, A’s, Cubs and Royals over the last decade; never lasting long enough to get re-signed at any spot. After starting 30 games for the Cubs in 2016, Chicago left his off their World Series roster; a clear indicator of their opinion of Hammel moving forward.

No surprise that Chicago dumped him after 2016. Hammel’s 2017 campaign in Kansas City can only be described as ugly; start to finish. His ERA was above 5.00 at home, on the road, in day games, in night games, pre All Star Break and post All Star Break. But the Royals signed him to a three year deal, so here is Hammel trotting out there every five days for a team playing sub .300 baseball (14-33) to get lit up.

KC is 1-8 in Hammel’s nine starts this season; not exactly going into today’s game with a sense of confidence. The lone win came in a game where Hammel left with a 9-4 deficit before a big (and very rare this season) KC rally. Hammel’s last four starts have been particularly rough: 25 earned runs allowed on 34 hits and seven walks in just 21 innings of work. The Royals bullpen behind him is anything but fresh – none of their last four starters has been able to complete the sixth inning.

KC isn’t likely to be able to slug their way to victory here either. Luke Weaver is coming off back-to-back gems: 12 innings of work, ten strikeouts & only one run allowed on a solo shot. The bullpen behind him is rested and ready off last night’s complete game shutout from Miles Mikolas. And the Cardinals lineup is hitting well for the first time in weeks; pounding out five runs or more five times in their last six ballgames. That stands in sharp contrast to a KC lineup that’s been held to three runs or less seven times in their last nine games. Expect another blowout.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers

05.21.2018     12:08 PM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona (Greinke) at Milwaukee (Anderson) +105 O/U 8
Recommendation: Milwaukee

Tough to bank on the Diamondbacks for anything right now, especially after Patrick Corbin set the table perfectly Saturday and then watched his win evaporate in less than five minutes. When ultra- reliable setup man Archie Bradley (loss and blown save in 2 of L3 appearances) joins the dismal offense as a component that fails, you end up with a 1-9 record in your last 10 games. Injuries continue to be the major problem for the Diamondbacks who finally had 3B Jake Lamb return to the lineup last week only to have Steven Souza Jr. reinjure his pectoral muscle that same night after just losing CF A.J. Pollock for 6-8 weeks three days earlier. A 10-day DL decision on Souza is coming today and it seems likely he’s headed there. His slash line of .167/.239/.429 wasn’t helping the offense at all but his defense was outstanding. Currently, tonight’s starting pitcher Zack Greinke is the only player on their 25-man roster that has a batting average over .265 (10 of their 13 position players have an OBP less than .290). Granted, Lamb is going through an extended Spring training period but this offense overall seems tailor made for a pitcher coming off the DL like tonight’s Milwaukee RH starter Chase Anderson. Adding to the problem are Greinke’s home/road splits which show a 1.69 ERA at Chase Field and 7.27 ERA away from home. He was dominant at Chase against Milwaukee six days ago (6 IP, 4 hits, 1 BB, 1 ER) but Arizona lost 2-1.

My normal practice is to either fade starting pitchers in their first start off the DL or just lay off the game entirely. Circumstance here is different though since Anderson’s 14 days off were to recover from food poisoning and not an arm or other body injury. This is a unique matchup where each starter is throwing against a former employer so they’ll each be motivated to throw well. Major differences between their backing though as Milwaukee’s offense plus the back end trio of Jeremy Jeffress, lights out Josh Hader & Corey Knebel point toward the Brewers +105 at home.

MLB Handicapping: Understanding the profile for the best and worst teams to bet on

05.21.2018     11:38 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Finding the perfect MLB "betting profile" can be tricky. The best teams who post impressive run differentials and a top-tier statistics are almost always well accounted for in the betting markets. It's tough to support these teams with traditional moneyline bets when they are routinely laying north of -200. On the flip side, the worst teams flatout struggle to win. A 65-win team needs to be priced, on average, +150 in order just to break even. Below we broke down the best and worst teams from a profits perspective over the last five seasons. To no surprise, the most common ingredient is under- and over-achievement based on preseason expectations. For example, Arizona was lined at 77.5 wins last season and won 93 games. Meanwhile, San Francisco undershot its win total by 24 games, hence it's historic -37.8 units. Another factor, is "luck." In 2016, Texas won 95 games but "should" have been at or near .500 based on its miniscule +0.2 run differential. The markets never caved on the Rangers' soft statistical profile; they were on average a -106 favorite. In fact, if you combined both 2015 and 2016, Texas went 188-141 +58.9 units. Their pythagorean W-L during that span was 165-159 meaning based on their average moneyline price, they overachieved by over +50 units. Those "luck" teams are a bettor's worst nightmare because we've been trained to forcast regression and when it doesn't come, we literally pay the price. 

As for this season, some of the aforementioned profiles are at work yet again. The Atlanta Braves were lined at 74.5 wins but are currently on pace to win over 100 games. The Braves won't get to 100 wins, in fact, according to FanGraphs, they are currently projected to win 83 wins. If that holds true, Atlanta would finish 55-62 and lose its backers a few unit based on their current +105 average moneyline price. The Los Angeles Dodgers are on pace to hit -30 units by the All-Star Break. Pegged to win 96.5 games, LA is 20-26. However, the Dodgers "should" be closer to .500 and if they can get healthy at some point, there's a chance for some profits the remainder of the season. Remember, the Dodgers won +11.8 units last season despite being priced on average at -186. This year's team average price is -158; no doubt aided by Clayton Kershaw's absence.

2018 (Preseason O/U Wins)
Best: Atlanta +13.8 (74.5)
Worst: LA Dodgers -23.6 (96.5)

2017
Best: Arizona +16.6 (77.5)
Worst: San Francisco -37.8 (88)

2016
Best: Texas +29.3 (86)
Worst: Minnesota -31.3 (77.5)

2015
Best: Texas +29.6 (76.5)
Worst: Cincinnati -31.1 (79)

2014
Best: Baltimore +34.8 (82)
Worst: Arizona -31.6 (80.5)

MLB Betting Update: National League still crushing Interleague play

05.21.2018     10:28 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

Back on May 7, we noted the National League had dominated early season Interleague play. Since then, said domination has continued. Over the last two weeks, the NL racked up a 15-8 record good for +6.3 units of profit bring its year-to-date total to 39-21 +20.6 units. There are a few individual team records that have contributed to the lopsided results. Pittsburgh is 10-2 thanks to 12 games against the Minnesota, Detroit and Chicago who are a combined 25 games under .500. The Yankees and Red Sox have combined to play only four Interleague games. However, the Orioles and Royals, have played only three. The Tigers, White Sox, and Rays are a combined 2-18.

American League Interleague Records/Units as of 5/21
2012: 141-114 +16.4
2013: 158-148 -1.3
2014: 166-141 +14.6
2015: 171-134 +22.9
2016: 168-139 +12.7
2017: 164-143 +7.3
2018: 21-39 -24.0

 




MLB Handicapping: National League hold rare Interleague edge

05.07.2018     08:31 AM     View Original Blog
Interleague play really ramps up this week with five different series. Recent history has shown consistent profits for the American League. From 2012-17, including the World Series, the AL won an average of just over +12 units per season. That trend has been bucked thus far in 2018 with the National League holding a 24-13 +14.3 edge. Also note that AL teams currently own four of the worst five records in MLB and those four teams have combined to play only four of the 37 interleague games. Baltimore and Texas (21-47 combined) have yet to play an interleague series.

American League Interleague Records/Units
2012: 141-114 +16.4
2013: 158-148 -1.3

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks at New York Mets

05.18.2018     06:15 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona (Godley) at New York (deGrom) -155 O/U 7
Recommendation: Over

After a promising start, the New York Mets are nearing full-on circus mode with current runs of 6-14 and 3-7. Injuries, trades, drama in the club house...the list goes on. Even one of the few bright spots, tonight's starter, Jacob deGrom, has issues. After a stint on the DL, deGrom returned on Sunday and lasted only an inning due to a high pitch count. He noted following the outing that his stuff and release point just wasn't there. After the arm injury scare, the Mets are obviously taking no chances meaning deGrom will continue to be on a short leash and one of the league's worst bullpens will continue to see plenty of action. Speaking of promising starts, Arizona's Zack Godley started the season with back-to-back gems but has since been repeatedly smacked around. Over his last six starts, Godley has issued 18 walks and sports a 5.57 ERA and .300 BAA. His main issue has been the ineffectiveness of his curveball which is his lone plus pitch. Last season, batters hit .162 BA/.236 SLG against his breaker. Of pitchers who threw 150+ innings last year, only Corey Kluber's curveball rated better. This season, .244/.397 with a 54th ranking among qualified starters. Multiple key bats on the shelf, including Cespedes and Pollock, but difficult trusting both starters with a total that could reach as low as 6.5.

Sports betting in New Jersey will happen but not as soon as everyone would like

05.17.2018     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pump your brakes, bettors. Talk that New Jersey's Monmouth Park will be taking bets within two weeks have since cooled due to the fact that no one knows exactly what rules and regulations will be put in place. To New Jersey's credit, while eager, there appears to be a "let's make sure we get this right" approach in place.


"Operationally, the sportsbook is built out, with just a little bit of additional equipment to be brought in," William Hill U.S. CEO Joe Asher said. "We need to hire and train front-line employees and get our arms wrapped around any regulations that are going to be put in place."

Well, this is interesting. Down 2-0, the Cleveland Cavaliers opened as -5.5 home favorites for Saturday's Game 3. After taking early money, they are now -6.5 both offshore and in Las Vegas. But what's interesting is the first half line. The Cavs are laying -6.5 for the game and as high as -6 (CRIS) for the first half. To compare, Golden State is -7 for the game and -4 in the first half for Sunday's Game 3.

Local bookies don't appear worried about regulated sportsbooks

But about the local bookie? Most are saying fear not, especially if regulated sportsbooks fail to offer what bettors can get offshore or offscreen with a local bookmakers.

 

“It’s absolutely ludicrous. Bookies in Philly are probably laughing,” said Brett Smiley, a Penn grad who’s cofounder of SportsHandle, a news site covering the business of sports betting. “I would be shocked if there aren’t conversations happening right now between casino operators and the state to lower that tax.”

“It’s going to be more a thing with the kids who bet $20 a game, that stuff,” Jerry said.

Regulations will be key in determining popularity and growth of sports betting

05.16.2018     09:09 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There are a slew of different numbers being tossed around with regards to exactly how much profits legalized sports betting will yield. One analyst gave a range of $62 million to $2.9 billion. The key though will be the regulations -- everyone wants to get paid but will there be enough to go around?


 "A set of regulations and taxes need to be put into place, and we don't know what those are," Katz said in an interview. "We have seen situations in gaming where regulatory bodies are set up and tax rates are set up that's a structure so onerous that it doesn't benefit the operators to pursue it. The returns aren't good enough. It winds up being a much smaller business than anyone expected."

Las Vegas sportsbooks offer blueprint on how to be successful

05.16.2018     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For states looking to open sportsbooks, the logical blueprint is that of Las Vegas. William Hill is already positioned to operate at Monmouth Park. MGM and Caesars have casinos all across the country. Westgate SuperBook manager Jay Kornegay points out that sportsbooks have a very small margin, meaning in order to turn a profit, they need to be run correctly.


“Most of those that are operating in Las Vegas today are operating in other markets around the country,’’ he said. “I can assure you that those companies are excited about the possibility of bringing their expertise into these other markets as they consider sports betting."

“A Las Vegas sports book works on a very slim margin and its the lowest hold percentage of any casino game offered,’’ he said. “Not to mention it’s very expensive to operate.

“The potential operators out there really need to understand not only how a book operates, but also the financials of a book before they put any kind of legislation together.’’

A month and a half into the season and only two games separate the Cleveland Indians (20-20) and Detroit Tigers (18-22) in the standings. The separation between the two squads will undoubtedly grow as the season progresses but even when we account for projection and overall gap in talent, I have a hard time buying into Josh Tomlin as a -135 road favorite. Tomlin, who sports an 8.06 ERA and even worse 9.69 FIP, hasn't pitched in 10 days. Perhaps his only redeeming quality is that he tossed five scoreless innings against Detroit back on April 10; a game that featured a very pitcher friendly 38 degrees. Yes, the Tigers are without Miguel Cabrera. But without Cabrera, the Tigers have still managed to produced offensively. In 10 games since he hit the DL, Detroit is 5-5 an has averaged 4.4 runs per game. And unlike Tomlin, Francisco Liriano has been rock solid with three runs or less allowed in all seven starts. He's ripe for a little regression (.226 BABIP) but is far more trustworthy than his counterpart for this evening. This matchup should be line at or near a pick 'em which means there's value on the home dog.
