MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Cincinnati Reds at Miami Marlins

07.27.2017     10:03 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cincinnati (Stephenson) at Miami (O'Grady) -130 O/U 9.5
Recommendation: Miami

The Cincinnati Reds are a dead nuts bet-against team right now, a hopeless squad that has thrown in the towel on the 2017 campaign. Cinci opened the second half with a 2-8 homestand. They’ve gone 0-3 since hitting the highway, losing all three games in non-competitive fashion, by multi-run margins.

Quotes like this one from manager Bryan Price don’t inspire much confidence from this bettor – his entire focus is on evaluating talent for next year, not winning games this year: “These last 10 weeks are very important because I think we have to have a vision of what our starting rotation is going to look like in 2018, but we have to have that vision in 2017. I think it's going to be very difficult to come in and say, talk about, being really competitive if the vision isn't — if we don't know what 2018 is going to look like, at least from the outset.”

The Reds pitching staff is in shambles, bad news against a Marlins team that just pounded out a season high 22 runs last night in Texas. The Reds starters have combined to rank dead last in MLB in innings pitched, ERA and FIP. As a result, their bullpen is completely gassed, throwing gas on fires instead of putting them out. And Price is trying to stretch out his starters, leaving them in games where a strong bullpen would have their collective backs.

Robert Stephenson’s first start of the season came last week, against the same Marlins lineup he’ll face today. It wasn’t pretty, as he allowed eight hits, two walks and five earned runs in 5.1 innings of work, taking the loss in the process. In nine big league starts over the past two years, Stephenson has recorded an out in the sixth inning only once. Like many young pitchers, he’s been awful on the highway, with a 10.97 ERA away from home; an easy fade on the highway tonight.

The betting markets aren’t particularly enamored with Marlins starter Chris O’Grady – hence the cheap price to support Miami this evening. O’Grady is no ace in the making, but he’s allowed three runs in each of his first three big league starts, keeping his team in the game. Cinci’s lineup isn’t hitting right now, producing four runs or less ten times in 13 games since the Break. Price: “We don't have anybody who's on fire. We haven't gotten to our power in the second half, which had been our strength in terms of driving the ball for extra-base hits."

College Football Gambling: Ohio State expected to pick up tempo under OC Wilson

07.27.2017     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on the change in tempo expected to take place at Ohio State this season with former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson taking over as offensive coordinator.


“I think at times we got away from [tempo], and it’s part of who we are,” quarterback J.T. Barrett said Thursday.

“It’s not like you’re frantic,” he said. “It’s no different than playing up-tempo basketball. You still have to execute. You can’t throw it away. What you try to do is get in a rhythm and get the defense on their heels to get those guys maybe not doing as much, but you still have to execute.

“You don’t want to rush, but you want to go fast. It’s learning how to play within yourself at a reasonable tempo.”

College Football Handicapping: Illinois offense will lean on run-first quarterback

07.26.2017     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New quarterback and a new-look offense for Illinois this season as second year head coach Lovie Smith announced Chayce Crouch as the team's starting quarterback. Crouch has been with the program for four years, gone through three coaches and attempted only 65 passes. His claim to fame is an ability to run the football. Crouch racked up 137 yards on 17 carries in last year's loss (LOL!) to Purdue. Here's a good article on what bettors can expect from Illinois' offense this season including perhaps a faster tempo.


 In just over two quarters of play, Crouch was 10-for-14 passing for 142 yards to go along with 17 carries for 137 yards and two scores. He used his bulldozing style of running (with his 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame) to become Illinois' diet-diet-diet version of Tim Tebow for one afternoon in October.

After scoring just six points before Lunt's injury, the Illini tallied 25 points with Crouch at the helm and rushed for a staggering 315 yards as a team on the day. Crouch's, and Illinois', day was doomed however, when Crouch fumbled inside the 10-yard line in overtime and the Boilers hit a field goal to leave Champaign with a victory.

Gamblers continue to show support for Conor McGregor

07.25.2017     11:20 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you want some Floyd Mayweather in your pocket, now may be a good time to grab some as a few bets on Conor McGregor have driven the line down to as low as -550 (-672 at Pinnacle).


One adventurous bettor wagered $35,000 on McGregor to win by KO at 6-1 odds. That bet would win $210,000 if McGregor pulled off the shocker.

College Football Gambling: Ole Miss likely in for a world of hurt this season

07.25.2017     11:11 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
What a world we live in. Make one (accidental?) call to a hooker with a work issued phone and you're out of job. The question now becomes how bad does it get for Ole Miss? Let's not forget, the program was already banned from postseason play. There's also the issue of only 11 returning starters for a 5-win team that lost its final two games of the season to Vanderbilt and Mississippi State by a combined score of 93-37. Don't forget about transfers and bailing recruits. Now, it's nearly August and your head coach and offensive play caller is gone and you're forced to promote an offensive line coach to help stop the bleeding oh, and navigate the SEC West. Currently lined at 5.5 wins (5Dimes), it's not easy to come up with six wins despite being spotted two (one?) off the bat with home games vs. South Alabama and UT-Martin.


"I can truly tell y’all today that this is my dream job," said Luke, who addressed the media for the first time since being named Ole Miss' interim coach Thursday. "It’s a job I’ve been preparing my whole life for. I feel more strongly now than ever that I’m the right man to run this program."

Billy Walters to be sentenced this week

07.24.2017     11:12 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Prosecutors are pushing for Billy Walters to serve 10 years (!) for his role in an insider-trading scheme. Walters asked for leniency due to "health issues" but was reportedly spotted golfing as recently as last week. Sentencing is slated for Thursday.


"Since Walters’s age and health concerns are not so serious as to keep him off the links, they should not provide a basis to keep him out of jail," they said.

A brief jail term "would send a message that wealthy defendants can simply buy their way out of the criminal justice system," Assistant U.S. Attorney Brooke E. Cucinella said in the filing.

NBA Gambling: Odds indicate Irving will stay in Cleveland, Melo headed to Houston

07.24.2017     09:41 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NBA offseason is a total shit-show right now because Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland and Carmelo Anthony would rather play for Idaho State than the New York Knicks. Looking to capitalize on the chaos, BetOnline is offering odds on where both players will end up. Right now, Kyrie is even money to suit up for the Cavs and Houston is the chalk destination for Melo at -130.

College Football Betting News: Utah brings in new OC to spark stagnant offense

07.24.2017     10:05 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the constants for the Utah Utes program has been Kyle Whittingham who took over in 2005. Under his watch, the Utes are 104-50 including a stellar 10-1 in the postseason. The one inconsistency has been offense as the Utes ranked 11th of 12 in total offense in the PAC-12 five out of the last six years. Whittingham has tried out a lot of different offensive coordinators and schemes. He gave Norm Chow a shot as well as former quarterback Brian Johnson. Hell, even Dennis Erickson got a turn. This year, Whittingham is going with former high school and Eastern Washington coach Troy Taylor. In one season as EWU's passing game coordinator, the Eagles put up some sick numbers including 5,766 yards of total offense which was an FCS record. Since joining the PAC-12, Utah is 33-41-1 O/U. Perhaps this is the season the Utes produce better than average offensive numbers.

 

“I’m just big on trying a lot of different things," Taylor said. "If it works, great. If it doesn’t, there’s no harm and we’ll move on.”

“In some offenses, the quarterback would be responsible for seeing what the coverage is,” he added. “The problem is defenders move after the ball snaps, so they will give you a look like a cover-two with two safeties, and then it might rotate to one-high … and it can change drastically after the play.

“What I’ve found is it is best to have the quarterback look at certain areas, so he is going to check this route. If it’s open, he is going to throw it. If not, he is going to be looking over with his eyes, and it’s going to move defenders to that area.”[:END-QUOTE:

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Diego Padres at San Francisco Giants

07.21.2017     08:37 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Otto Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
San Diego (Cahill) +148 at San Francisco (Samardzija) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: San Diego

What's the old saying? You'll never make money betting on bad teams? That's not always true as all teams, both good and bad, can offer value. But I do subscribe to it being tough to make money backing bad MLB teams as sizable chalk. It's not even August, and every coach and player for the San Francisco Giants is counting the days until this disaster of a season is over. After last night's loss (as -200 favorites) the Giants sit at 37-60. Tonight, Jeff Samardzija and his much ballyhooed K-to-BB ratio take the hill. He's no doubt pitched better than a 4.86 ERA but he's also coughed up 20 home runs and hammered into submission last time out against these same Padres to the tune of seven runs over six innings. I'm shocked that San Diego hasn't moved Trevor Cahill who has everything you want in a midseason starting pitcher acquisition: K rate (11.1 per 9), GB rate (56.8%), 3.23 FIP, and most important, freshness with only 57.1 IP on the season. Those numbers probably won't last assuming he takes the hill every fifth day the remainder of the season. But right now, is there really a difference between what he brings to the table and Samardzija? And is there really a difference between either of these bottom feeder teams? The answer to both is no. Which is why grabbing nearly +150 with the underdog warrants a play.

MLB Gambling: There will come a time when fading the Dodgers and Astros will yield profits

07.20.2017     09:35 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros are pretty good. And barring a historical collapse, they will win their respective divisions. They've also made a ton of money for their backers despite rising price tags. The Dodgers are up nearly +24 units with an average moneyline price of -179. The Astros not far behind at +18.7 units with an average moneyline price of -142. Not only are both teams winning games, but they are doing it in dominant fashion. Check out the current run differential for both teams compared to the leaders of past seasons. Unsustainable? Perhaps. But you can literally bet that come the last few weeks of the season, there's money to be made fading both squads.

Year - Run Differential
2017 - Dodgers +1.9
2017 - Astros +1.7

2016 - Cubs +1.6
2016 - Red Sox +1.1

2015 - Blue Jays +1.4
2015 - Cardinals +0.8

2014 - A's +1.0
2014 - Angels +0.9

2013 - Cardinals +1.2
2013 - Red Sox +1.2

2012 - Nationals +0.8
2012 - Yankees +0.8

Reports say match fixing may have occurred at Wimbledon

07.20.2017     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There have been plenty of stories of some C-Class soccer team in the Balkans tanking a game and sportsbooks noticing ridiculous betting patterns. Or a tennis match where the 934th-ranked player in the world mysteriously beats the 103rd-ranked player in the world in straight sets. What we generally don't see -- or are made aware of -- is match/game fixing at the higher levels. However, according to reports by the Tennis Integrity Unit, as many as three matches at Wimbledon were recently flagged.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland A's

07.19.2017     08:48 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tampa Bay (Faria) +113 at Oakland (Gray) O/U 8
Recommendation: Tampa Bay

The Rays have come out of the break playing winning baseball, winning four out of five on their current road trip. They’ve been clutch throughout this run; getting the key outs from their bullpen in high leverage situations and taking advantage of late inning opportunities themselves, like their ‘two out, nobody on’ rally in the bottom of the ninth on Tuesday. The Rays trail Boston by only two games in the AL East standings right now, a surging team worth riding, especially in this underdog price range.

Meanwhile, the Oakland A’s, have been a steady fixture in last place in the AL West for the last two months. They notched a series sweep over the Indians last weekend., but were unable to carry any of that momentum forward, losing the first two games of this set. It’s surely worth noting that the last time Oakland had a home sweep, they followed it up by getting swept in a four game set at home in their next series. This is not the type of squad primed to deliver extended runs of winning baseball over the back half of the campaign."

Oakland GM Billy Beane has announced that the team is in full rebuild mode. He just traded two key relievers for future prospects, leaving manager Bob Melvin to say this about his bullpen moving forward: "We'll figure it out on the fly a little bit.” Figuring it out on the fly cost them the game last night, and the negative momentum in Oakland is palpable right now, even with ace Sonny Gray on the hill. Gray, too, is on the trading block — be sure to play this game as ‘action’ not as ‘listed pitchers’ if you get involved with a wager. Take the Rays.

Gambling Update: DraftKings and FanDuel decide against partnership

07.18.2017     08:29 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

Looks as is DraftKings and FanDuel weren't in the mood to tangle with the Feds. The once proposed merger is no longer as both companies will remain separate.


 “[W]e believe it is in the best interests of our customers, employees, and investors to terminate our agreement to merge with FanDuel and move forward as a separate company,” DraftKings said. “This will allow us to singularly focus on our mission of providing the most innovative and engaging interactive sports experience imaginable, forever changing the way fans connect with teams and athletes worldwide.”



 

 

 




Government tries to nix FanDuel-DraftKings partnership

06.20.2017     08:24 AM     View Original Blog
The Federal Trade Commission is trying to stop a potential merger between Daily Fantasy Sports giants DraftKings and FanDuel. The reason is simple: They would then control as much as 90 percent of the market.


"It all comes down to how you define the relevant market, and that's where they fell short," Daniel Wallach, a Florida attorney who specializes in gambling and sports law, said of the two companies. "And I'm not convinced they'll do any better in a federal court."

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates

07.18.2017     08:25 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Milwaukee (Guerra) at Pittsburgh (Nova) -145 O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

In terms of matchups, this isn't an ideal one for Pittsburgh's Ivan Nova. Milwaukee of course is a free swinging bunch that rarely walks and likes to hit the long ball. Nova, one of the league's most frequent strike throwers (15 BBs in 120.2 IP), has allowed 15 home runs on the season with nearly half (7) coming over his last five outings. In his lone start against the Brew Crew, Nova allowed 13 baserunners and was perhaps fortunate to surrender a modest four runs over seven innings. Milwaukee's Junior Guerra showed promise last season when he flashed a 2.81 ERA over 121 IP. But for a guy north of 30 years old and limited MLB experience, it was going to be tricky to sustain. Sure enough, Guerra has come crashing down to earth thanks to a rapid rise in walks and fly ball rate. Guerra has issues 31 free passes over just 49 IP while coughing up 13 dingers. Like Nova, he was fortunate that last time these two teams hooked up as he allowed 12 baserunners and nine line drives but escaped with only three earned runs over six inning. We were successful in playing yesterday's game under the total. Today's matchup dictates a strong look in the opposite direction.

College Football Betting News: Kansas hopes new OC will spark improvement

07.18.2017     08:08 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Recruiting at Kansas isn't easy but the Jayhawks this offseason marked perhaps the biggest score since head coach David Beaty took over with the "recruitment" of former TCU offensive coordinator Doug Meacham. Meacham has a big hand in the Horned Frogs' offense going from pedestrian to prolific. The tricky thing for Meacham will be doing it with far less talent. Kansas was one of 12 teams nationally that failed to average over 5 yards per play last season.


“I called him 10 times and offered him so much, I told him ‘look, you can have all the money, I’ll hire everyone else for a dollar,’” Beaty said on Monday, the first of two Big 12 Football Media Days in Frisco, Texas. “’You can have it all, what’s it going to take to get you here?’ Cause I just think that much of him.”

“He’s one of the best offensive minds in college football,” Beaty said. “Bringing him to Lawrence was an incredible addition to an already amazing group of coaches and men that we have at our place.”

MLB Handicapping: Dodgers and Kershaw a -300 road favorite

07.18.2017     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tonight is likely to mark the 20th time in his career Clayton Kershaw will go off as a -300 or more favorite. His track record under those parameters is pretty strong as the Dodgers won 16 of the 19 games (+6.8 units). The run-line during that span is slightly better as +8.5 units. Because of the high price tag, bettors can get as much as +160 on the White Sox at +1.5 runs. Since 2014, MLB favorites of -300 or more have won 22 of 26 games (84.6%), good for over +9 units of profit. Kershaw was on the hill for 15 of those 26 contests. This will however mark only the second time Kershaw has been priced -300 or higher on the road.
