MLB Handicapping: Cleveland Indians poised for run, but bettors beware

06.28.2017     11:40 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Cleveland Indians hold only a half-game lead in the American League Central but there are plenty of indications the Tribe will pull away at some point. For starters, Pythagorean W-L records show the Tribe have underachieved whereas the Twins and Royals have overachieved. Based on runs scored and allowed, Cleveland should be 43-33 while Minnesota and Kansas City check in at 33-42. Chicago, which is seven games out, has actually played .500 baseball from a runs score/allowed standpoint while Detroit, slightly worse at 36-40.

One of the main reason Cleveland is poised for better fortunes on the horizon is that nearly the entire starting staff has outpitched its ERA. Check out the numbers below. Bauer, Tomlin, and Salazar all have their faults but have also pitched way better than their ERA suggests.

Corey Kluber: 3.24 ERA, 2.81 xFIP
Carlos Carrasco: 3.67 ERA, 3.51 xFIP
Trevor Bauer: 5.53 ERA, 3.64 xFIP
Josh Tomlin: 6.09 ERA, 4.20 xFIP
*Danny Salazar: 5.40 ERA, 3.57 xFIP

*Salazar currently on the DL but slated to return shortly.

But we're hardly the only ones to spot that Cleveland should be better than its overall record. The problem is how do we as bettors take advantage? The answer is, you probably don't. Last season, the Indians won 94 regular season games which was good for +9 units (+17 units if you include the postseason). Their average moneyline price was around -130. This year, bettors aren't finding a lot of -130's. In fact, Cleveland's average moneyline price is a staggering -152. That's led to around -15 units. So let's say Cleveland does start to win games at the rate that some of its numbers suggest. It'll still be extremely difficult for bettors to cash in due to the high price tags. And another thing to remember is that the oddsmakers aren't going to "cool" on this team. Meaning, even if Cleveland continues to flounder from a W-L perspective, that -152 isn't going to drop. And if they do turn it on and run away with these division like most feel they will, the prices have nowhere to go but up and making money on the Cleveland Indians -- even on the run-line -- will be damn near impossible. Your best bet is to find the occasional favorable spot/price and take advantage.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants

06.28.2017     08:40 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Colorado (Freeland) -120 at San Francisco (Blach) O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Expect the ball to be put in play and some this afternoon with Colorado's Kyle Freeland facing San Francisco's Ty Blach. Combined, the two lefties have tossed 167 innings and recorded only 88 strikeouts. And in 48 plate appearances, opposing pitchers have struck out only eight times against the soft-tossing duo. Regression has hit Blach in a big way. Over his first eight starts he flashed a 3.08 ERA including a complete game shutout vs. Philadelphia. Since that outing, he's been tagged for 22 runs in 21.1 innings. Freeland is perhaps a little more protected against a hard regression in that he garners a ton of ground balls (58.5%). But since his hot start (6 starts, 2.65 ERA) he's been far more hittable (9 starts, .295 BAA against, 8 home runs, 4.36 ERA). A few more starts at Coors and a Denver heat wave will be all it takes to see his numbers really start to bottom out. The question, however, is can these two below average offenses take advantage? Temps are expected to be in the low 60's but the wind is blowing out to left center which with two lefties on the hill, should yield a home run or two. You knew the 8.5 wasn't going to last but there's a clear reason why this total got played over.

MLB Handicapping: Starting pitcher to fade moving forward

06.27.2017     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
While offense and ERA's remain on the rise, there are a handful of starting pitchers that have skirted around it as we near the All-Star Break. FanGraphs put together a list of arms that are primed for regression in the coming months. At the top of the list are a few obviously candidates. Texas' Andrew Cashner has gone from swing-and-miss to pitch-to-contact arm with a K per 9 rate of only 4.28. His xFIP (5.43) is nearly two runs higher than his ERA (3.50). Chicago's Mike Pelfrey should undoubtedly be a victim of the assumed "juiced ball" movement yet he's carting around a 3.73 ERA. And KC's Jason Vargas continues to give up boatloads of fly balls that rarely leave the yard (6.6% HR/FB rate). He's sitting on a 2.29 ERA.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Rays at Pittsburgh Pirates

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tampa Bay (Cobb) -105 at Pittsburgh (Williams) O/U 9
Recommendation: Tampa Bay

Different year, same result as the American League continues to dominate the National League in Interleague play. Heading into tonight's action, the AL is 83-59 +20 units of profit on the season. We can grab a near pick 'em price on Tampa Bay and starting pitcher Alex Cobb as the Rays open a series at Pittsburgh. Tampa has won five of its seven interleague games this season and has a very strong track record vs. right-handed pitching with a 31-22 mark and 117 wRC+ which ranks third in MLB. They'll face a very hittable arm in Trevor Williams who as a starter owns a 5.01 ERA over nine starts. Cobb is still trying to regain the form he had in 2014 when he flashed a 2.87 ERA over 27 starts. Arm difficulties and age have left him with slightly better than marginal stuff but his body of work is actually rock solid (4.05 ERA, 4.15 FIP). He's primed for success tonight against a mediocre lineup in a National League park. Money in this one should continue to trickle in on road side. At current pick 'em price, that's the preferred play.

CFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Saskatchewan Roughriders at Montreal Alouettes

06.22.2017     09:54 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saskatchewan +7.5 at Montreal O/U 51
Recommendation: Saskatchewan

Now that +7’s and even a handful of +7.5’s have become available, I think a bet on Saskatchewan is warranted in tonight’s CFL season opener between the Roughriders and Alouettes. Saskatchewan was tied with Toronto for the worst record in the CFL last season at 5-13 but in spite of that, they still managed a respectable 9-9 ATS mark. Saskatchewan’s training camp and preseason was a whole lot of ugly with Vince Young suffering a torn hamstring which ended his CFL comeback before it could even begin. As a whole, the Roughriders’ starting offense and defense both took turns struggling to perform at a high level.

Saskatchewan has a new starting quarterback with the veteran Kevin Glenn at the controls after the trade of Darian Durant who is now with Montreal. The Riders do have a good amount of talent at the skill positions and their offensive line should be better but the defense was abysmal last season and didn’t exactly play all that well in their two preseason games. Having said all that, I’m not sure there is anything about the Montreal Alouettes, who are coming off their own turmoil filled and mediocre season, that warrants this type of pointspread. Durant is definitely an upgrade at the position but this team improved its offense potentially at the expense of their defense which has been a rock solid stop unit in recent years. Montreal had to cut loose a bunch of their defensive personnel in the offseason as they said goodbye to linebackers Winston Venable and Bear Woods, defensive linemen Aaron Lavarious and Alan-Michael Cash and safety Marc-Olivier Brouillette. And while they still have veterans John Bowman and Chip Cox, there is a chance the Alouettes defense could take a step back in 2017 especially since Bowman and Cox are now well into their 30’s and may decline. I understand the reluctance to back Saskatchewan but Montreal has plenty of question marks of its own. Given the West Division’s dominance over the East last season, I think taking the points with the Riders here is a worthy wager.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at Miami Marlins

06.22.2017     08:16 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago (Arrieta) -130 at Miami (Locke) O/U 9
Recommendation: Over

Miami’s Jeff Locke remains a fringe National League arm; capable of popping for the occasional strong start but very hittable otherwise. He allowed 1 run and fanned seven in his first outing of the year against Arizona but has since failed to record a quality start (3 starts, 14 IP, 5.79 ERA). One of those opponents was the Cubs who patiently picked him apart in a 10-2 victory (4.2 IP, 4 BB, 3 ER). Locke's "metrics" (3.54 FIP) indicate he's pitched better than his 4.58 ERA, but considering the offensive boom MLB is currently enjoying, that ERA is likely who he'll really be over a larger sample size.

Chicago’s Jake Arrieta has been consistently mediocre this season. On May 3, Arrieta's ERA sat at 4.63. A month and a half later, it's 4.64. Virtually every metric has regressed including groundball rate than is nearly 10% lower than last season. Yes, the strikeouts are there (9.9 K's per 9) but without a top-tier defense and more balls hit in the air (that thus leave the yard), the reality is Arrieta is an average NL starter. His last start vs. Pittsburgh was a perfect example of who he is: 4.2 IP, 94 pitches, 7 Ks, 2 ERs. He labored throughout and was fortunate as Gregory Polanco, who hit a laser beam homer earlier in the game, just missed another by less than a foot.

Right in line with most of MLB, Marlins Stadium is 20-14-1 O/U this season including 7-4-2 O/U with totals of 9 or higher. In fact, across MLB, games totaled 9 or higher have gone over nearly 59% of the time. Would look that way tonight with two very hittable starters on the hill.

Soccer player says pretty much everyone loves to bet

06.21.2017     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly

Currently banned soccer player Joey Barton claims that gambling among players is way more prevalent than people think.


“Oh yeah there are players in every dressing room. One thing footballers have in common is they love betting. Because they’re competitors,” he said.

“It happens on a huge scale. Are the FA going to investigate? No, because if they do they’re going to have to give all these players 18 months.

“I was an outlier on volume [of bets] but there’ll be outliers on wagers staked. I’ve been in dressing rooms with players, where they’ve a hundred grand staked on mad stuff. On one bet. Scary. A lot bet massive figures.”

NFL Gambling News: League reaches settlement with Las Vegas charity event

06.21.2017     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL has a long history of getting pissy any time its name get associated with a casino. Back in 2015, a kids charity event was put together with various players in attendance. The venue happen to be the bowling alley at Las Vegas' Sunset Station. The NFL nixed it but the charity wasn't about to be bullied and turned right around and sued the league. It looks as if the NFL waved the white flag as it recently reached a settlement with the charity.


“There's only one person that can tell us what's the difference between the non-approved venue and the approved venue (Goodell),” Pettit told a federal magistrate judge last month. “And he's this Oz behind the curtain, this person that the NFL will not allow us to talk to. And everyone points their finger at him, saying he's the only one that can make that determination.”

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."

Gambling Update: Numbers of bets continue to pile up on McGregor

06.20.2017     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UPDATE

The betting markets continue to work over the much anticipated (and likely boring) Mayweather-McGregor bout slated for August 26. Offshore, Mayweather opened -1000 at CRIS and -950 at Pinnacle. But money on McGregor has the current line around -700. You can get as cheap as -600 on Mayweather at Las Vegas' Golden Nugget. If you like McGregor, +500ish is widely available. Money has also come in on the under in terms of the length of the fight. After opening 9.5 the market has since shifted to 9.5un-165. Interestingly, 90 percent of the bets made at Las Vegas' Westgate have come on McGregor but nearly 80% of the money is on Mayweather.


“It wouldn’t surprise me if this price goes lower,” Westgate sports book manager Jeff Sherman said. “We’re still taking bets on McGregor at 5-1.”

“It’s been all McGregor. It’s unbelievable,” Caesars Palace sports book director Frank Kunovic said. “All the square action is going on McGregor. That’s a big liability for us if he does win.

“This is building up to be just as big, if not bigger, than the Mayweather-(Manny) Pacquiao fight.”






Early two-way betting action on Mayweather-McGregor fight

06.15.2017     08:58 AM     View Original Blog
So this thing is actually going to happen. According to Pinnacle's line history, early money came in on Conor McGregor. He opened +648 and was bet down to +529. Then a wave of Floyd Mayweather money drove the line the other way. The 12-round fight is scheduled for August 26 at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena. Those shops offering an O/U on total rounds currently show 9.5 with juice to the over.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
St. Louis (Leake) -160 at Philadelphia (Hellickson) O/U 9.5
Recommendation: St. Louis/Over

Currently ranked among the top 10 qualified starter with a negative ERA-FIP differential (4.91 ERA-5.91 FIP), Philadelphia's Jeremy Hellickson is no doubt fortunate his ERA isn't higher. Like his counterpart tonight, Mike Leake, Hellickson pitched out of his mind the first part of the season (5 starts, 1.80 ERA) but has come crashing down with a near 7.00 ERA over his last nine starts. During that span of 47 innings, the veteran righty has a 23-20 K-to-BB ratio while allowing 13 home runs. He's currently as bad a starter as there is in the National League. Speaking of regression, after posting a sub-2.00 ERA through his first nine starts, Leake has seen his ERA rise well over a run thanks to a 6.20 ERA (24.2 IP, 17 ERs). His overall performance this season, however, is far more "real" than that of Hellickson. Leake currently owns career bests in both groundball rate (54.9%) and swinging strike rate (8.2%). Not to mention that stretch of regression came against four of the NL's better offenses (Cubs, Reds, Dodgers, Brewers). Here he faces a big step down in class with the Phillies near the bottom of MLB in most offensive categories. A lot of the value with both St. Louis (-140 to -160) and total (9 to 9.5) was taken out early but those remain the prefered ways to play this contest.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Francisco Giants at Colorado Rockies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
San Francisco (Moore) at Colorado (Hoffman) O/U 11
Recommendation: Colorado -1.5

Jeff Hoffman has been one of the many positive stories from an unexpectedly solid Colorado Rockies pitching staff that has led the team to a 42-26 record. Hoffman sports a 2.33 ERA over four starts; all them Colorado wins by two runs or more. Along with the stellar ERA is a 0.74 WHIP, 34 strikeouts, and only three walks. The San Francisco Giants have endured a dismal season that is now 17 games below .500 after yesterday's 7-2 loss to Kansas City. The always problematic lefty Matt Moore takes the mound tonight in what can only be considered a precarious situation. Moore has surrendered nine runs in his last 10 innings of work and he’s been at his worst on the highway with a 7.94 ERA. Not surprisingly, the Giants are just 1-6 in Moore’s seven road starts. Moore’s track record at Coors Field is equally unimpressive has he allowed 12 runs in his previous two starts. The Colorado bullpen has been terrific all season and has the arms to preserve a lead in the latter innings. The moneyline price is a tad rich but it’s worth noting that 33 of Colorado’s 42 wins have been margins of two runs or more. Good spot to step in a lay the -1.5 at the small plus price with the superior home team.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Red Sox at Philadelphia Phillies

06.14.2017     09:50 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston (Johnson) -125 at Philadelphia (Hellickson) O/U 10
Recommendation: Boston

Despite being 21-42 as a team, the Philadelphia Phillies are 9-4 when Jeremy Hellickson toes the rubber. Hellickson started the season strong (1.80 ERA first five starts) but has been exposed in a big way of late. Over his last eight outings, Hellickson has been pounded to the tune of a 6.43 ERA and 12 home runs allowed. He also sports an alarming 22/17 K-to-BB ratio. He's simply not fooling anyone and is tasked with facing an above average American League lineup tonight.

Boston is priced rather cheaply tonight because unproven rookie Brian Johnson is on the bump. Johnson, a former first round pick, has been serviceable with a 3.44 ERA and 16/4 K-to-BB ratio in three starts. And his Minor League stats (2.61 ERA over 471 IP), suggest he'll be able to get MLB hitters out at a decent rate. My issue with Johnson is that he's not a big swing-and-miss arm and tends to give up a lot of fly balls. That's not ideal tossing in Fenway against the American League but in this spot, even in a hitter friendly park, he has a good chance to post a quality start.

The AL is 74-51 in Interleague play good for over +21 units. Here we get one of the better teams in MLB facing one of the worst with a price that is more than reasonable. The Phillies have virtually no edges in this matchup which makes it easy to support the road side.
