MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Atlanta Braves at Cincinnati Reds

04.24.2018     10:43 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Atlanta (McCarthy) -118 at Cincinnati (Mahle) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Atlanta

The Cincinnati Reds are a true bottom feeder sitting dead last in MLB with a 4-18 record and one thing I’m not about to do is trust this horrible squad to win two games in a row which is something they have yet to accomplish this season. I’m not convinced the recent firing of manager Bryan Price will do all that much to provide a spark for this lowly team. It has been a combination of horrible pitching and an underachieving offense that has led to the Cincinnati woes and at the forefront of it all is Joey Votto’s struggles at the plate with the Reds star player completely falling off the map so far this season in terms of his power numbers at the dish. Cincinnati enjoyed a very rare win last night defeating Atlanta 10-4 in the series opener but I believe the Braves have a good chance to bounce right back with a win tonight. Brandon McCarthy takes the mound for Atlanta in this game tonight and the veteran righty has been solid for them with a 2.91 ERA allowing 2 runs or less in three of his four starts notching 8 walks and 18 strikeouts in those outings. His 50% groundball rate is something I like to see pitching in this type of extreme hitter friendly ballpark and Atlanta is 4-0 this season when McCarthy has taken the hill. Prior to last night’s outburst, the scuffling Reds lineup was held to 7 runs combined during a 5 game losing streak and I think McCarthy given his current form can neutralize a very suspect Cincinnati lineup in this game. On the flip side, Tyler Mahle gets the nod for Cincinnati and he’s struggled big time with a 5.14 ERA and his FIP being right in line with it at 5.51 indicates there is nothing phoney about his difficulties. Mahle has a very low 38.7% groundball rate and his 22.7% home runs per fly ball percentage is simply not good for anyone that regularly pitches at Great American Ballpark. He’s given up 5 home runs over his last 15 innings of work. I don’t trust Mahle to shut down this Atlanta lineup and behind him is the dreadful Cincinnati bullpen which is currently the worst pen in MLB with a 5.33 ERA so Atlanta should have the ability to score runs early and late in tonight’s game. Atlanta has done a great job bouncing back after a loss this season entering tonight at 7-1 in 8 games following a loss. This is now a very cheap price hovering around -120 to back the better team and I have no problems stepping in and taking advantage.

Paddy Power-Betfair want in on U.S. sports betting so long as the juice is worth the squeeze

04.24.2018     09:49 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If the current sports betting bill is passed, Paddy Power-Befair is expected to be a major player. But the sportsbook giant is concerned whether or not doing business in the United States will be financially viable. The states and leagues want a cut -- a big one -- but someone needs to run the whole operation and that someone isn't going to do it if there isn't worthwhile profits to be had.


"With a higher tax rate, that money comes out of our marketing, which is going to be very important in bringing people to bet onshore," says Levin. "If there are different rules in every state in terms of different rates, markets and bets you can offer, that just becomes overhead in cost that will slow down getting rid of illegal markets."

NFL Gambling: Browns considering Baker Mayfield as the first pick

04.24.2018     09:39 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Cleveland Browns are almost assuredly going to take quarterback with the first pick of Thursday's draft. The favorite is currently USC's Sam Darnold who is currently -210 at 5Dimes. But a report came out today that Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield was also on the Browns' radar. Mayfield is priced at +550.


 "The only thing I care about is, do guys win?" Dorsey said. "Does he have accuracy? Does he have a strong arm? Can he throw the ball in the red zone in tight windows? Can he drive the ball? At the end of the game, does he win? That's what I look for."



If Browns general manager John Dorsey is telling the truth, they may in fact draft Mayfield over Darnold. Check out the stats...

Does he win? (Record as starter)
Mayfield: 39-9, .812
Darnold: 21-6, .777

Does he have accuracy? (Career completion %)
Mayfield: 68.5%
Darnod: 64.9%

Does he have a strong arm (Draft combine velocity)
Mayfield: 59 (left), 60 (right) (2nd to Wyoming's Josh Allen)
Darnold: Did not throw

Can he throw the ball in the red zone? (Career completion % in red zone)
Mayfield: 64.5%
Darnold: 59.0%

At the end of the game, does he win? (4th quarter/OT QB Rating)
Mayfield: 159.4
Darnold: 183.9

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Cleveland Indians

04.24.2018     09:08 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Otto Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Chatwood) -105 at Cleveland (Tomlin) O/U 9
Recommendation: Chicago

Tough to expect much sharpness out of Cleveland's Josh Tomlin who hasn't started a game since April 10. Tomlin was forced into action in the 15th inning of last Wednesday's game against Minnesota. Overall, Tomlin has thrown only 1 inning (37 pitches) over the last 12 days. That doesn't bode well against a surging Chicago Cubs offense. After netting just one run in back-to-back games two weeks ago, the Cubs have pounded out 52 runs over their last six games. Tyler Chatwood's stuff thus far has been almost too good with 18 strikeouts and 14 walks in 15.2 innings. This isn't however a bad matchup as Cleveland currently ranks near the bottom of MLB in offensive production including the third lowest walk rate (7.7%). Chicago should also have the bullpen edge having had yesterday off. Note than Cleveland relievers Cody Allen and Andrew Miller, who have yet to allow an earned run this season, threw on both Sunday and Monday and are unlikely to be available tonight. Eliminate the duo and the Tribe's pen ERA jumps a run and a half. At the nearl pick 'em price we'll support the road side in this one.

Supreme Court will reportedly decide on New Jersey sports betting case this week

Rumor has it the Supreme Court could decide as early as Tuesday on whether or not New Jersey can offer sports betting. If it passes, Monmouth Park, which already has a 300-seat sportsbook, will reportedly be up and running within two weeks.


“This law will jump-start the casino and racing industries, and that will save thousands of jobs,” former state Sen. Ray Lesniak, who spearheaded the initiative over nearly a decade, told The Post.

MLB Handicapping: Chase Field humidor having a big impact on offense

04.23.2018     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like the humidor at Chase Field is living up to its billing as a run suppressor. Through 11 games, totals are 3-8-1 O/U with scoring down nearly three runs per game. Also aiding in the suppression has been Patrick Corbin's 28 innings and only four earned runs allowed. But keep an eye out for the inevitable tipping point which may have already seen; Sunday's total vs. San Diego opened 8 and closed 7 with a 4-2 final.

Chase Field 2017
Over/Under: 42-34-7
Average Total: 9.4
Runs Per Game: 9.95
Home Runs Per Game: 2.65

Chase Field 2018
Over/Under: 3-8-1

Runs Per Game: 7.17
Home Runs Per Game: 1.92

NHL Playoff Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Vegas Golden Knights at Los Angeles Kings

04.17.2018     10:28 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Vegas +110 at Los Angeles O/U 5
Recommendation: Vegas

The Vegas Golden Knights will be looking to sweep away the Los Angeles Kings in 4 straight games tonight in Game 4 of this Western Conference first round series at the Staples Center. I truly worry about what is left in the tank both physically and mentally for the LA Kings entering this ‘do or die’ game. Los Angeles lost a grueling marathon Double OT game in Game 2 of this series on Friday night in Vegas which was a bitter pill for them to stomach. The Kings responded in solid fashion and led 1-0 for most of Game 3 when suddenly Vegas and their four line offensive depth sprung to life and struck very quickly for 3 goals in succession in the 3rd Period to take a stunning 3-1 lead en route to an eventual 3-2 victory that has pushed Los Angeles to the brink of elimination entering this contest tonight and in the process handed the Kings a second consecutive brutal and painful loss in this series. From what I’ve seen watching this series, Vegas has been too fast, too skilled and far too deep for Los Angeles to handle. The Kings rely on a punishing physical brand of hockey as their method toward success but they have rarely been able to hit many of the speedier Golden Knights forwards because they have been simply too quick for the Kings defense to keep up with and catch going down the ice. Los Angeles did pull off an improbable comeback series win down 3-0 many years ago but that was a better Kings team than this one in my view and a different opponent than the one they are up against here. The long-term pattern says that teams up 3-0 in a series in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are more prone to closing out the series in a 4 game sweep. Teams that have led an NHL Stanley Cup Playoff series 3-0 have gone on to win Game 4 and sweep the series at a 129-84 61% clip. Vegas has owned matchup edges all series long and I have to wonder how much will is left in the LA side and I think a wager on the Golden Knights to close out the series at a small underdog +110 price is one worth making tonight in Game 4.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves

04.17.2018     08:41 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia (Pivetta) at Atlanta (Foltynewicz) -110 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Under

If Atlanta's Mike Foltynewicz is ever going to blossom into an above average starting pitcher, this is his year to do it. The Braves have steadily built up the 26-year-old former first rounder who through three starts owns a 2.93 ERA and 18/5 K-to-BB ratio. One thing that has helped his cause is the increase usage of a changeup; a pitch that often takes time to develop for hard throwing righties. Thus far, he's used the pitch 33 times and has yet to yield a hit. Coupled with a plus fastball, Folty’s got the arsenal to now be a pitcher rather than the thrower we saw when he was initially called up. Philadelphia's Nick Pivetta is also entering his prime. Like Foltynewicz, he struggled with command (57 walks) and home runs (25 home runs) last year but has already shown improvement. Through three starts, the 25-year-old has issued only two walks and has yet to allow a home run. Pivetta's strides have been tied to his curveball which he's using more. Hitters are hitting .133 off of Pivetta's plus offering. The Braves got off to a hot start offensively but have since cooled with seven of their last eight going under the total including last night's 2-1 win over the Phillies. With two starters that are starting to show their potential, we'll look to play this game under the total of 8.5.

MLB Handicapping: Comparing 2017 to 2018 moneyline prices

04.16.2018     10:14 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's early, but we felt it would be worth checking out where MLB teams are currently priced in the betting markets compared to last year. Below is a list of every team's average moneyline price last season and thus far in 2018. Obviously schedule can play a part: Atlanta looks improved but its average price (+137) is higher due in large part to eight games against the National and Cubs. However, this does paint a decent picture of where there teams are power rated. Philadelphia has jumped from +132 to -121. Defending World Series champions Houston are averaging -207 after -147 last season. The tanking Miami Marlins went from +108 to +176. The Mets, who are off to a hot start, are being priced on average 30 cents higher compared to 2017.

NBA Playoff Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Washington Wizards at Toronto Raptors

04.14.2018     08:19 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Washington at Toronto -8 O/U 211
Recommendation: Toronto

The betting markets certainly aren’t sleeping on the Toronto Raptors extended stretch of playoff failures. Make no mistake about it – the Raptors have been a dismal pointspread team in the postseason throughout the Dwayne Casey era, quite literally never living up to betting market expectations.

The results do not lie. The Raptors went 3-6-1 ATS in their ten playoff games last year. They went 7-13 ATS in their 20 playoff games in 2016. In 2015, it was an 0-4 ATS Run as they got swept and in 2014, the Raptors covered only two pointspreads while getting eliminated in the first round in seven games.

When you add up all of that carnage, we’re talking about a 12-27-2 pointspread run in the postseason during the Dwayne Casey era. That includes a truly ugly run in Game 1’s: 11 SU losses in 12 tries as a franchise, including an 0-7 SU and ATS record in Game 1’s over the last four postseasons.

No surprise here that the betting public has been more than a little reluctant to put their $$ on the Raptors as big home chalk in Game 1 of this series. Given Casey’s track record and given the failures of this current core of Raptors in the postseason, there is ZERO betting bandwagon on Toronto right now. IF – and yes, that is an ‘if’ – they play well in the postseason this year, there will be a fair bit of residual value backing this squad; a team that has the potential to be a significantly undervalued commodity moving forward.

From all indications, the Raptors are treating this Game 1 very differently from Game 1’s in years past. Kyle Lowry yesterday: “Our Game 1 is our Game 7 tomorrow, to be honest. We got to play like a Game 7. That’s just how we have to do it….like it’s our last game……We’ve lost a lot of Game 1’s; lost a lot!”

DeMar DeRozan: "We didn't get 59 wins for no reason. The hunger, the push, the pain of the grind all season. The failures from the previous years, kind of carrying that over. Definitely feels different."

It’s surely worth noting that both Lowry and DeRozan played far fewer regular season minutes than in either of the last two years, in large part due to the Raptors impressive depth. And the wiseguys have kept this pointspread in the -8 range, well familiar with the Raptors impressive statistical profile – the only team in the NBA ranked in the Top 5 in both offensive and defensive efficiency.

The Raptors still remember getting swept out of the first round by the Wizards in 2015. That series probably marks the high point of the John Wall era in Washington; an era defined by their own set of playoff failures. This Wizards team went 10-15 SU post-All Star Break, not exactly bringing their ‘A’ games on either end of the court. Frankly, the Wiz have 1-2-3-Cancun written all over them. Points worth laying!

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Grand Salami Over

04.12.2018     08:23 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Grand Salami O/U 73.5
Recommendation: Over

Warmer temperatures and a handful of lower-tier starting pitchers has me looking to play today's Grand Salami over. It's been brutally cold throughout much of the country which has played a part in a 0.68 runs per game scoring drop compared to last year. And while today's weather can hardly be considered a heat wave, most typically cold weather venues expect to be in the low 50's with Kansas City and St. Louis in the low 70's. Outside of the weather, we have a lot of back-of-the-rotation starting pitchers. Cincinnati's Sal Romano, Colorado's Chad Bettis, San Francisco's Chris Stratton, San Diego's Bryan Mitchell, LA's Nick Tropeano and Kansas City's Ian Kennedy all grade out as below average MLB starters. And some of the more "premium" arms -- Kyle Hendricks, Gio Gonzalez, Rick Porcello, Michael Wacha, Trevor Bauer -- are still hittable and good to allow some runs. You do have four games in which teams are favored by -180 or more which has the potential to take away at-bats but overall, there are multiple games that set up well for double-digit run outputs.
