CFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Saskatchewan Roughriders at Montreal Alouettes

07.29.2016     09:43 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saskatchewan +1.5 at Montreal O/U 49.5 
Recommendation: Saskatchewan


There are two factors pointing toward betting against the Montreal Alouettes as home favorites tonight. The first is the fact the team is not playing very good football with a 1-3 SU record including 0-2 SU/ATS at home. The offense remains an injury-riddled mess as the Alouettes have failed to score more than 17 points in each of their last three games. Two of their top three receivers, S.J. Green and Kenny Stafford, remain out along with lead RB Tyrell Sutton. QB Kevin Glenn has been inconsistent and the offensive line in front of him has not played well by failing to open up holes for the ground attack and also allowing too many sacks. The second reason for the “fade” is that the scheduling spot couldn’t be more brutal. The Alouettes played on Monday night in Toronto and now must play just four days later leaving them with very little time to prepare and heal injuries.

On the flip side, Saskatchewan comes into this game with some confidence as they snapped its three-game losing skid last week with a 30-29 win over Ottawa. Saskatchewan QB Mitchell Gale played very well in his first ever start in place of an injured Darian Durant. Gale had a solid completion rate, threw a TD pass and most importantly didn’t throw an interception despite playing behind a makeshift Riders offensive line which is still battling injuries and attrition heading into this game. The Saskatchewan defense is still a work in progress for first-year head coach and GM Chris Jones. They did however make key stops with the game on the line against Ottawa which is a positive sign of growth moving forward. Saskatchewan’s stop unit takes a significant step down in class here against a very lethargic and struggling Montreal offense and I expect their defense to play even better. Saskatchewan is already 2-0 ATS in the underdog role this season including a pointspread cover in their lone previous road game at Edmonton. Road teams continue to pile up the profits in the CFL at 15-5-1 SU, 17-4 ATS this season. Play the short road underdog.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Arizona Diamondbacks at Milwaukee Brewers

07.27.2016     10:53 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona (Bradley) at Milwaukee (Nelson) -140 O/U 9 
Recommendation: Milwaukee


Arizona is a hot mess right now.  The D-backs spent a small fortune this past offseason, expecting to be contenders in 2016.  Instead, they started off poorly, never got hot and are now thinking about dumping salary before the trading deadline. As late as June 24th, this team was 36-40, looking to make a move up in the standings.  They’ve gone 5-19 since, including losses in six of their last seven contests.

Arizona’s mediocre (at best!) bullpen is spent .  None of their last seven games has seen the starting pitcher finish the sixth inning.   The pen imploded again last night, turning a 4-4 game in the 8th inning into a particularly demoralizing 9-4 defeat.  That’s particularly bad news with Avery Bradley on the hill tonight – he’s no innings eater.   And their lineup has gone cold, producing only nine runs in their four losses on this current road trip.

The non-descript Brewers are a team that nobody has paid attention to all year; a complete afterthought in the MLB betting world.  But Milwaukee is swinging hot bats right now, pounding out  five runs or more in more than half of their games since the All Star Break, including each of their last four on this homestand.

Starter Jimmy Nelson has been the Brewers best pitcher this year, allowing two earned runs or less in 15 of his 20 previous starts.  Expect another strong showing tonight, especially after a throwing error on a simple grounder to the mound cost him to lose his last start.  Manager Craig Counsell: “Defensively, he kind of made a couple of mistakes that hurt him. But I thought his stuff was good."  The price here is perfectly reasonable to back Milwaukee in a game they should win with relative ease.

College Football Handicapping: Tony Franklin takes over already potent MTSU offense

07.27.2016     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In what is being called a "family decision", offensive coordinator Tony Franklin left Cal this past offseason for the same gig at Middle Tennessee State. Franklin, a native of Kentucky, coached at Louisiana Tech, MTSU, Auburn, and Troy prior to a three-year stint in Berkeley. He takes over an MTSU offense that averaged 34 ppg last season behind then-freshman quarterback Brent Stockstill (4,005 yards, 30 TDs, 9 INTs). The Blue Raiders also return top receiver Richie James as well as four starting o-linemen.


“We’re good up the middle, we have our quarterbacks and receivers back," Stockstill said. “I like our offense, where we’re at, and we’re just going to have to improve from where we were last year.”

“You go from a normal drag-racing car to a top-fuel car,” he said with a laugh. “They’ll score fast and we as a defense might not be off the field that long. I’m very confident in them.”

College Football Handicapping: Updating Georgia's injury situation

07.27.2016     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A few links in connection with yesterday's Sportsmemo Podcast as host Andrew Lange and Drew Martin discussed the Georgia Bulldogs. Running back Nick Chubb (8.12 ypc) who missed the back half of last season with a knee injury is inching back towards full strength. He, as well as Sony Michel (1,161 yards, 5.3 ypc), though remain questionable for Week 1's game vs. North Carolina. And earlier this month, first-year head coach Kirby Smart named quarterback Greyson Lambert the team's starter. Georgia is currently a -3 favorite vs. the Tar Heels.


“He’s back to his normal self when it comes to running, cutting, exercising, but he hasn’t put the pads on,” he said. “He hasn’t taken a hit. He hasn’t taken that knee brace off yet. So there’s a lot of hurdles when it comes to that for Nick gaining confidence.”

“I know Georgia fans are not going to agree or like this but Greyson Lambert is going to be the guy to start the season,” said former Alabama QB Greg McElroy.”We are talking about a guy that won ten games last year, how does that get overlooked? I understand he didn't always necessarily have outstanding playmaking ability, but he made good decisions.

"His two best weapons (are out). Sony Michel broke his arm and Nick Chubb had the catastrophic knee injury. Airing on the side of caution, going with the veteran quarterback would make an awful lot of sense for a first-time head coach."

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Atlanta Braves at Minnesota Twins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Atlanta (Harrell) at Minnesota (Santana) -200 O/U 9 
Recommendation: Under


You can't help but be interested in a total of 9 involving the Atlanta Braves offense. The Braves enter tonight's game at Minnesota with the league's worst SLG pct. (.350) and OPS (.652). This is a squad that is averaging only 2.8 runs per game on the highway this season. Of the 10 games they've played this season with a total of 9 or higher, only two went over the total. They face a competent starter in Ervin Santana who since a midseason swoon has been very effective. Over his last six starts, Santana flashes a 2.03 ERA -- all of which against AL competition. Santana has also been far stronger at home with above average splits of .235/.283/.377. Atlanta will go with Lucas Harrell who is nothing more than a stop-gap as the Braves continue to eye next year and beyond. He's actually pitched fairly well with a 4.24 ERA in four starts. Anything close to a quality start from Harrell gives us a good shot to go under this inflated number.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New York Yankees at Houston Astros

New York +135 at Houston (Keuchel) O/U 7 
Recommendation: New York


Each of these starting pitchers have been throwing well for an extended period now which figures to make it tough on each lineup tonight. The Yankees have struggled far more offensively than Houston has since the All-Star break being held to three runs or less in seven of their 10 games while the Astros have scored four or more in six of their nine. Houston also has been rolling for two months now going 37-16 since May 24 while New York to their credit has faced a tough 10 games to start the second half and come away with a 6-4 mark which keeps them in the AL Wild Card hunt. Shipping closer Aroldis Chapman is far from a waiving of the white flag by the Yankees who still possess one of the best bridge to closer duos in MLB. The matchup of Michael Pineda’s power pitching (56 Ks L 40.1 IP) versus Houston’s strikeout prone lineup (897 is MLB’s 3rd most) favors New York.  Pineda has also shown solid control over his last 12 outings walking only 16 batters in the 67.2 inning span. His mound opponent in this one, Dallas Keuchel has a 2.84 ERA and 1.29 WHIP over his last five starts which can’t be ignored but his K/BB numbers during the 31 inning stretch are a pedestrian 23/11. Believe the New York lineup has a greater chance of breaking through in this game and with relievers Betances & Miller getting yesterday off, the late innings bullpen edge goes to them as well. Houston will have prize rookie and #1 ranked MLB prospect Alex Bregman in the lineup batting sixth tonight but facing Pineda is a tough first assignment. Underdog price here is large enough to entice a play on the Yankees who have the ingredients to get the win here.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early look at the NFC East

07.25.2016     10:17 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I’ve previewed seven of the eight NFL divisions already, which leaves one last division to dissect before the start of training camps this week – the NFC East.  After this column, I’ll be taking a short break from writing Wiseguy Reports, taking some time to be fresh for the start of football season.  My next report – all about beating preseason NFL – will come in mid- August.

Let’s start with the division favorite Dallas Cowboys who are lined at 9 wins.  Last year was an unmitigated disaster for Jerry Jones’ squad and their supporters in the betting markets: 4-12 SU, 4-11-1 ATS.  The Cowboys top heavy roster was besieged with key injuries, most notably at quarterback and their defense was an abject disaster.  The Cowboys finished dead last in the NFL with a -22 turnover margin in large part because their defense notched only 11 takeaways all year.  To put that number in perspective, 24 of the 32 NFL teams recorded 21 takeaways or more.

Jason Garrett is 7-22 ATS as a home favorite in his first five years as the Cowboys head coach; a consistent track record of failure.  And the Cowboys are likely to be home favorites at least seven times this season – maybe all eight, with a relatively easy opposing slate of foe.  That stands in sharp contrast to last year when they faced one of the tougher schedules in the NFL.

Dallas is loaded with elite skill position talent.  They’ve arguably got the best offensive line in the league.  They’ll get top CB Orlando Scandrick back after he got hurt in training camp last year and didn’t play.  But with Rolando McClain, Demarcus Lawrence & Randy Gregory all facing league mandated suspensions, there are no shortage of defensive question marks.  And for all of the Cowboys elite talent, quality depth remains a major issue for a roster that has been decimated with injuries in the past.  Tony Romo has missed 24 games over the last five seasons and if he gets hurt again, the Cowboys backup QB situation doesn’t look much better this year than it did in 2015’s debacle.

The New York Giants enter the Ben McAdoo era off three consecutive losing campaigns, without a single playoff appearance since their 2011 Super Bowl title.  The G-men are lined at 8 wins for 2016, coming off a season where their defense was ranked 32nd in yardage – dead last in the NFL, behind even the awful Saints stop unit.  Despite those defensive woes, the Giants were actually slight money winners for their supporters last year.

Giants GM Jerry Reese spent $200 million this past offseason – this is not a ‘new coach rebuild’ situation following Tom Coughlin’s dismissal.  Instead it’s a ‘We Have Eli Manning but his prime isn’t going to last much longer’ situation – the Giants are most assuredly in win now mode.  With the additions of Oliver Vernon, Janoris Jenkins, Damon Harrison in free agency and Eli Apple with their #1 pick in the draft, defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has MUCH more talent to work with in 2016 than he did in 2015.

Manning has done well in McAdoo’s offense for the last two seasons; coming off career high in TDs and a career best 35-14 TD-INT ratio.  Eli hasn’t missed a game since his rookie season, 11 straight years playing all 16 games.  But the offensive talent surrounding him is very ‘iffy’ .  Odell Beckham is a stud.  But Victor Cruz has been a non-factor, with only 23 catches since 2013.  There’s no. 1 RB here.  And the offensive line has some major holes, on paper, heading into training camp.

Like the Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles are publicly stating that they intend to win now, despite firing Chip Kelly in the offseason and trading away a haul of draft picks to move up an nab QB of the future Carson Wentz.  The Eagles have a split line with their season wins – some books have a 7, others have 7.5 with juice to the under. 

First-year first time head coach Doug Pederson has a pretty thin resume.  His only previous head coaching experience was at the high school level.  He has had only three seasons as an NFL coordinator, handling a Kansas City attack under Andy Reid that did not see off many fireworks.   New defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is switching from 3-4 to 4-3 while replacing four starters, including DeMeco Ryans, Cedric Thornton and Walter Thurmond.  On offense, they’re switching from a zone blocking scheme to a power blocking scheme on the offensive line.  These are not minor changes!

The Eagles have more salary cap money tied into the QB position than any team in the league.  Which, of course, means that their starting QB on opening day is likely to be Sam Bradford –the guy who cost Kelly his job last year; the guy who has failed pretty consistently since being taken #1 overall by the Rams.  All of that $$ at QB has led to this quote from GM Howie Roseman, back on the job after getting forced out in a power struggle with Kelly last year: “What we did in free agency was the best that we could to try to fill a bunch of holes.  Nobody’s sitting here thinking we are a completed picture.”   It’s also worth noting that in the middle of the season, Philly plays three consecutive opponents coming off their bye, then Seattle, Green Bay and Cinci al in a seven week span!  Ouch!

The Washington Redskins were the surprise division winner last year after entering the season projected to be the last place team in the NFC East.  But the markets aren’t particularly bullish on the Skins' chances to repeat their success, with Washington lined O/U 7.5 wins off last year’s 9-7 SU, 9-7 ATS campaign.

History is not on this team's side.  Their last back-to-back winning seasons came in 1996 and 1997.  Their last back-to-back playoff appearances came in 1991 and 1992; when this franchise was still competing for Super Bowls and football fans had never even heard of Daniel Snyder.

Looking back at last year, Washington’s success seemed to be more about their very weak division and one of the weakest slate of opposing foes in the league than any other factor.  Their nine wins came against the Rams, Eagles (twice), Bucs, Saints, Giants, Bears, Bills and Cowboys.  None of those teams finished with a winning record.  When Washington tried to step up in class – vs. the Patriots, Panthers and Green Bay Packers in their home playoff loss – they were non-competitive, losing by a combined margin of 106-34.  Just to clearly illustrate where this team was power rated at even in December, they were +4 at Chicago; +3 at home vs. the Bills the following week.

Kirk Cousins had a career year in 2015 after entering the season with more career INTs (19) than TDs (18): 70% completions and a 101.6 QB rating.  He’s got one of the deepest receiving corps in the NFL to throw to, and he’s playing for a long term contract.  But even with the addition of CB Josh Norman in free agency, this defense is loaded with question marks, as is the offensive line and RB corps.  Throw in a MUCH tougher schedule in 2016 and you can understand why the markets are not expecting a Redskins repeat.

College Football Handicapping: Oregon State hopes to be competitive during rebuild

07.25.2016     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Nowhere to go but up for Oregon State second-year head coach Gary Andersen. The Beavers went winless in PAC-12 play last year and in the process managed to allow 42.3 ppg. Anderson brought in former Utah State DC Kevin Clune to take over the defense and promoted Kevin McGiven (QBs coach) and TJ Woods (o-line coach) to serve as co-OCs. Chuckie Keeton has also been added to the staff. OSU appears to have upgraded at the quarterback position as former Utah State starter Darell Garretson who filled in for the oft-injured Keeton has already been named the starter. The Beavers finished last season with a sub-100 team QB rating after using three freshmen. Oregon State went 6-18 ATS over the past two seasons and is likely to be underdogs in all 11 games against FBS competition in 2016.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros

07.22.2016     08:34 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Los Angeles (Shoemaker) at Houston (McCullers) -145 OU 8 
Recommendation: Under


The ability to miss bats is certainly present tonight in Houston tonight with Matt Shoemaker going up against Lance McCullers. Shoemaker's splitter ranks as one of the most effective pitches in the game as evidence by his 13.5% swinging strike rate -- 6th best among qualified starters. After a slow start to the season, Shoemaker has ripped off a 2.55 ERA over his last 12 starts including two against the Astros in which he allowed only three runs in 13.1 innings. McCullers counters with one of the best curveballs in the game which has resulted in an incredible K rate of 11.5 per 9 innings and a 55% groundball rate that has helped him surrender only two home runs over 62 innings. And coming from the right side is the preferred method to keep both of these offenses at bay. Scoring is obviously up this season but totals continue to climb and it appears that we've reached the tipping point with unders cashing at a 63% rate since the All-Star break. We'll step in with a play on tonight's game under the total.

College Football Gambling: Kansas expectations once again ultra-low

07.21.2016     08:31 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For the second straight year, the Kansas Jayhawks are lined at 1.5 season over/under wins. Last season was a total disaster as KU failed to win a game while covering only three of 12. We'll go ahead and give the Jayhawks a Week 1 win over FCS Rhode Island who last season went 1-10 and finished 224th in Sagarin's Power Ratings. Beyond that, KU's best shot at another victory looks to be home tilts against Ohio and Iowa State. Below are the records since 2009 of teams off a winless season. In each instance, they won at least one game but no more than two the following year.

2009 
Eastern Michigan (0-12) 
2010's Record: 2-10

Western Kentucky (0-12) 
2010's Record: 2-10

2012 
Southern Miss (0-12) 
2013's Record: 1-11

2013 
Miami (OH) (0-12) 
2014's Record: 2-10

Georgia State (0-12) 
2014's Record: 1-11

2015 
Central Florida (0-12)
