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

Reports say match fixing may have occurred at Wimbledon

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

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

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.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers at Pittsburgh Pirates

Milwaukee (Suter) at Pittsburgh (Kuhl) -120 O/U 9
Recommendation: Under

Chad Kuhl's seasonal numbers don't get many bettors excited. But since increasing his fastball velocity a few starts back, he's quietly been effective. Over Kuhl's last seven outings he flashed a 3.50 ERA with solid 29-15 K-to-BB ratio over 36 innings. He was asked to throw on short rest right before the All-Star Break but has had over a week to recover and should hit the ground running in this his second season. He's not a bad matchup against the free swinging Milwaukee Brewers. Kuhl's command is the one thing lacking but in two outings against the Brew Crew, Kuhl fanned eight batter in 8 innings and allowed only two walks and two runs. Milwaukee's Brent Suter is another young arm that has the potential to thrive in the National League. Suter has primarily been used as a reliever but due to injuries is being asked to fill in as a spot starter. A soft-tossing, late blooming lefty, Suter relies on a heavy dose of strikes (187 walks over 679 career innings). In two starts against Baltimore and the New York Yankees, Suter allowed just two runs while fanning 13 and walking only two batters. He's in a favorable situation tonight against a light-hitting Pirates lineup and in a ballpark that heavily favors southpaws. We'll look to capitalize on Suter's first-time-through-the-league as well as Kuhl's steady improvement and play this game under the total.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Yankees at Minnesota Twins

New York (Mitchell) at Minnesota (Mejia) -102 O/U 10
Recommendation: Minnesota

Good situational spot here for the Twins as they get New York off of a grueling four game set at Boston which ended with a doubleheader yesterday. Reliever Bryan Mitchell is forced into the rotation tonight so the Yankees can keep their starters on normal rest. It’s uncertain how long Mitchell can go in this one since he’s only thrown 7.1 innings this season in his 12 relief appearances. Minnesota has a huge opportunity here if they can get to Mitchell and chase him early because the Yankees bullpen is extremely thin tonight. With their top three arms heavily used over the weekend, have to figure closer Aroldis Chapman (has thrown three straight days), setup man Dellin Betances (threw two of last three days) and Tyler Clippard (thrown back-to-back days) are all either unavailable or only if necessary. Either way, their effectiveness should be less than 100%. Add to that Adam Warren (pitched 2 of last 3 days) and Chase Shreve and Chad Green (have each pitched back-to-back days) and you can see the difficulties Joe Girardi faces with his pitching tonight.

Meanwhile, the Twins send 24-year-old Adalberto Mejia to the hill with a rested bullpen behind him. Mejia owns a 2.79 ERA over his last five starts which encompass 29 innings. Walks remain an issue for the LH as he’s now given 32 free passes in just 65 innings and he’s had some troubles at home owning a 5.62 ERA at Target Field. However, he has been tougher on right handed bats than lefties (.553 SLG% vs. LH/.429 vs RH) which bodes well here since New York power sources Aaron Judge & Gary Sanchez are righties. He’s allowed just 1 HR every 25 AB to right handed hitters. Overall he’ll need to give the Twins 5-6 solid innings in this contest and let Minnesota’s bullpen do the rest.

This is an important series for the Twins who sit just 1.5 games out of first place in the AL Central and the second Wild Card spot behind these Yankees. They seem to remain in pretty good form as indicated by playing the AL’s top team Houston very tough this weekend despite losing the series. The offense is likely to capitalize and put up a lot of runs in this spot which makes the cheap price worth taking.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers at New York Yankees

Milwaukee (Guerra) +180 at New York (Montgomery) O/U 10.5
Recommendation: Milwaukee

The Milwaukee Brewers have vaulted to the top of the NL Central division thanks to a recent 7-1 streak. They scored 4+ runs six times during that span and have also blistered southpaws all season long to the tune of over 5 runs per game. They face a lefty tonight in New York’s Jordan Montgomery who has pitched well this season but can at times be prone to the long ball having allowed six over his last four starts. Hitting dingers is what Milwaukee does best with 133 on the year; second only to the powerful Houston Astros (138). But perhaps most concerning for the Yankees is not Montgomery but their problematic bullpen with Dellin Betances, Adam Warren and even closer Aroldis Chapman all struggling to nail things down in the latter innings of late. Milwaukee’s Junior Guerra doesn’t have the type of seasonal numbers that suggest he’ll thrive in an American League park. But the young righty’s stats are somewhat skewed due to a poor start (8 ERs, 4 HRs) at Cincinnati. Outside of that outing, he’s been solid having allowed three runs or less in seven of nine trips to the hill. All of the key arms Milwaukee’s bullpen should be fresh and available after yesterday’s 11-2 romp over the Chicago Cubs and that matters since Guerra doesn’t generally go deep into games. The Brewers are one of the most profitable teams in MLB (+15.2 units) thanks to a near .500 record (25-27) as an underdog. The AL side getting a bit too much respect here as the underdog price is simply too good to pass up.
