NCAA Tournament Betting Free Play: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Kentucky Wildcats

03.28.2015     08:20 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Notre Dame vs. Kentucky -11 O/U 136 
Recommendation: Kentucky


For all that talk about Notre Dame's incredible season-long offensive production I think a lot of folks fail to realize that Kentucky is just as good at scoring the basketball. And the one luxury the Cats have is that even with a couple players having an “off night”, this team can still score at an incredibly efficient clip. Against West Virginia, Cauley-Stine, Towns, and Ulis combined for 3-of-10 from the floor and  11 points and the Cats still averaged 1.22 ppg and netted 78 points. Notre Dame can score too, but with what is essentially a five-man rotation, if two or three players underperform -- which is likely against UK's vaunted defense -- then Kentucky quickly becomes the better offensive team in this matchup. Defensively, it's of course not even close. The Irish don't force turnovers, are soft on the interior, and consistently lose the battle on the glass. Their only hope is to pack it in and hope Kentucky has an off shooting night from the perimeter. I can't come up with a facet of this game that favors the underdog which makes me more than willing to lay what is a very reasonable price with the favorite.

NCAA Tournament Betting Free Play: UCLA Bruins vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs

03.27.2015     08:23 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCLA +8.5 vs. Gonzaga O/U 145 
Recommendation: UCLA


This Sweet Sixteen contest is a rematch from a regular season meeting back in December at Pauley Pavilion when the Bulldogs easily defeated the Bruins 87-74 while covering as 5.5-point favorites. However, it is impossible to categorize the UCLA team that Gonzaga dominated in December with the UCLA team we are seeing here in March. The Bruins have grown up since then and played with much greater poise and both ends of the court. The Bruins are 6-1 SU, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games and the only defeat was a competitive 6-point loss to Arizona in the semifinals of the PAC-12 Tournament. UCLA has displayed versatility in the fact they can win with the offense and/or defense. They smothered SMU 60-59 in the first round and then rolled to a 92-75 blowout win over UAB.

It’s not easy to step in front of Gonzaga right now as the Bulldogs are a terrific and well balanced squad with four starters -- Kevin Pangos, Gary Bell Jr., Byron Wesley and Kyle Wiltjer -- who are all elite scorers. The Bulldogs played a solid opening game against North Dakota State and followed that up with a near perfect outing against Iowa in a 87-68 rout. Gonzaga shot 61.5% from the floor including 62.5% from the perimeter. They dominated the rebounding battle on the glass to the tune of 31-19 and only committed 11 turnovers. Often times, instead of looking for that same degree of dominance in a team’s next game, I like to look for a bit of a regression to the mean especially when the numbers were so off the chart. Gonzaga can’t play much better than they did against Iowa and now they must face what I think is a better opponent tonight and a higher pointspread. Take the underdog.

MLB Gambling Update: League looking into Cosart situation

03.27.2015     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

Update on the Jarred Cosart's alleged gambling exploits. The MLB is reportedly looking into the matter and Cosart is cooperating. He's playing it coy thus far and asking everyone to wait till the situation plays out. Cosart though didn't deny that the original Tweets in question were his own. Important to note that there's no rule to keep MLB players from betting on other sports.


"Obviously, I was caught off guard by the whole situation," Cosart said. "I'm following the MLB protocol and talking with MLB security, and they're taking care of it. I'm putting everything in their hands, and when we know something else, we'll let everybody know."






The one where Jarred Cosart is accused of being a sports bettor

03.25.2015     08:44 AM     View Original Blog
Well this is interesting -- and probably a hoax. The Twitter account of Miami Marlins pitcher Jarred Cosart went sorta crazy yesterday with talk of sports betting. That in turn led to every one of Cosart’s poor starts being labeled as an “obvious” fix.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Pittsburgh Pirates

03.27.2015     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

With a solid offense, defense, and pitching, the Pittsburgh Pirates have put themselves in good position to once again contend in the National League Central.

Pittsburgh Pirates  
2014 W-L:
88-74 
2014 O/U: 74-79-9 
2014 Profits: +6 
2015 O/U Wins: 83.5 
2015 NL Central Odds: +245 
Projected Starting Rotation: Gerrit Cole, Francisco Liriano, AJ Burnett, Charlie Morton, Vance Worley 
Key Departures: Edison Volquez, Russell Martin 
Key Additions: Corey Hart, A.J. Burnett

Handicapper's Take: "After years of toiling at the bottom of the National League the Pittsburgh Pirates are on good footing. They've embraced the 'smart baseball' mantra by relying heavily on sabermetrics and it's paid off in spades. The pitching staff is rock solid led by star-in-waiting Gerritt Cole (3.25 xFIP). Francisco Liriano is still only 31 years old and while unlikely to improve he can chew up quality innings in the National League. AJ Burnett is back for another turn and shouldn't have trouble matching Edison Volquez's production. Charlie Morton has reinvented himself as a solid middle-of-the rotation arm. And the combo of Vance Worley and Jeff Locke serves as two decent back-end options. Offensively, this was a sneaky-productive lineup in 2014 with the fourth-highest runs output in the National League -- tops in the Central. Virtually the entire lineup returns intact. The one main concern I have is replacing Russell Martin who was arguably the team's most valuable player. I'm not sold on the Cardinals running away with the division. Nor am I convinced the Cubs are going to be instant contenders like a lot of folks are projecting. The Pirates should be right there with the potential to churn out another profitable season." - Andrew Lange

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Tampa Bay Rays

03.27.2015     06:50 AM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

The Tampa Bay Rays have started plenty of seasons with the 'on-paper' look of a .500 ballclub only to exceed expectations. But they'll need to overachieve in a number of areas if they want to avoid finishing at the bottom of the AL East.

Tampa Bay Rays 
2014 W-L:
77-85 
2014 O/U: 74-79-9 
2014 Profits: -26.5 
2015 O/U Wins: 79.5 
2015 AL East Odds: +600 
Projected Starting Rotation: Alex Cobb, Matt Moore, Chris Archer, Jake Ordorizzi, Drew Smyly 
Key Departures: Ben Zobrist, Will Myers, Matt Joyce 
Key Additions: John Jaso, Keven Jepsen, Steven Souza

Handicapper's Take: "Looks to be somewhat of a transition year for Tampa Bay following the departure of a number of key players and manager Joe Maddon. And while the organization has a strong pedigree of being able to replace talent with talent, the Rays' farm system (24th according to Baseball Prospectus) isn't nearly as strong as it was 4-5 year ago. Offensively, they grade out as the weakest in the division. They had some of the worst power numbers in the American League and didn't do much to shore it up during the offseason. Their prized acquisition, Steven Souza (Washington Nationals), was at one point 4-for-33 in spring training. After earning International League MVP honors in 2014, the Rays are banking on him to be an impact bat. Note too that the pitching staff won't be near full strength to start the season. Alex Cobb is already dealing with arm problems. Drew Smyly and Alex Colome won't be ready for the start of the season. And neither will Matt Moore who is coming off of Tommy John. Couple that with lots of news faces and a new manager and the Rays look to be a prime 'bet against' team in April." - Sammy P

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Detroit Tigers

03.26.2015     06:18 AM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Following the loss of three key pitchers over the last two seasons, the Detroit Tigers find themselves as “just another AL Central team” after years of domination.

Detroit Tigers 
2014 W-L:
90-72 
2014 O/U: 84-72-6 
2014 Profits: -3.8 
2015 O/U Wins: 84.5 
2015 AL Central Odds: +205 
Projected Starting Rotation: David Price, Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez, Shane Greene, Alfredo Simon 
Key Departures: Max Scherzer, Rick Porcello 
Key Additions: Yoenis Cespedes

Handicapper’s Take: “The Tigers won 90 games again last year while winning their fourth consecutive American League Central title.  Yet their supporters lost money for the full season last year; just as they did in 2013 and 2012 – the only profitable season for their backers during this four-year span of division domination came back in 2011.  Why can’t the Tigers show a profit for their backers even when they are winning division titles?  Simple – their starting pitching was too good on paper, resulting in a steady diet of high favorite’s prices to lay with them. That may not be the case again in 2015.  David Price still commands a big price (pun intended) at the top of the rotation, but Justin Verlander has lost his luster in the markets and the likes of Alfredo Simon and Shane Green at the back of the rotation aren’t sabermetric darlings.  Then there’s Anibal Sanchez who can’t seem to stay healthy. The loss of Doug Fister in 2014 and now Max Scherzer and Rick Porcello quickly turned one of the top rotations in baseball to below average. Other concerns include a defense that remains near the bottom of the majors, a bullpen is loaded with question marks, and top slugger Miguel Cabrera clearly took a step back last year.  There’s a reason why this year’s Detroit Tigers are priced virtually the same as the White Sox and Indians to win the division. This is a team primed to take a step back.” - Teddy Covers

NBA Handicapping: Washington Wizards continue wild ATS streaks

03.26.2015     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Washington Wizards have officially imploded. Last night's fourth quarter meltdown (outscored 33-25) against the Pacers marked their fourth straight loss. Head coach Randy Wittman was so frustrated he started to walk off the floor before the game even ended. The Wiz are in the playoffs but may miss out on homecourt advantage in the first round as they currently own the fifth seed. But what stands out is the crazy against-the-spread streaks this team has put together over the last two months. Check these out...

January 21-February 5: 0-9 ATS

February 7-February 11: 3-0 ATS

February 20-March 7: 0-9 ATS

March 9-March 18: 4-0 ATS

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Xavier Musketeers vs. Arizona Wildcats

03.26.2015     07:01 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Xavier vs. Arizona -10.5 O/U 135.5 
Recommendation: Arizona


My power ratings show Arizona right there with Duke as the second best team in the country.  The Wildcats are playing in a friendly, familiar venue in LA; certain to enjoy significant crowd support compared to Xavier in this game, to go along with their short travel time.  Their coach, Sean Miller, is arguably the best coach in college basketball never to reach the Final Four.  This team is a juggernaut, plain and simple, and the PAC 12’s 7-1 ATS mark over the opening weekend of the Big Dance speaks volumes about how undervalued this conference is on the national stage.

Xavier is no juggernaut.  The Big East really wasn’t very good this year – it was Villanova and then everybody else.  The Musketeers are tough and well coached, but they finished sixth in this mediocre conference with a 9-9 record in Big East play.  They are here only because of the ‘luck of the draw’; facing an Ole Miss team off extensive travel on short rest in the first round, followed by upstart #14 seed Georgia State in the Round of 32.

The Georgia State game warrants further examination here.  Xavier hit 16-of-21 (76%) from two point range , 7-of-13 (56%) from three point range and 22-25 (88%) from the free throw line – as well as any team can possibly shoot, even against an undersized foe.  Xavier held the Panthers to just 12 rebounds for the entire game.  And yet they covered the spread by only a single point.  If you’re not covering numbers with ease following a truly unheard of statistical profile like that, it speaks volumes about their chances moving forward.

Xavier’s Matt Stainbrook and Jalen Reynolds – their only contributing big men -- were able to dominate the point against Georgia State.  The duo scored 30 points on 12-14 from the field and matched the Panthers team rebounding numbers by themselves.  But neither guy is a low post behemoth, leaving them in dire straights against the rugged, physical Wildcats front line.  The Arizona quartet of Stanley Johnson, Kaleb Tarczewski, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Brandon Ashley is primed to control the paint on both ends of the floor, start to finish.

The Wildcats just outrebounded a tough, physical Ohio State team by a +18 margin, on the heels of their +14 in the opening round and their +34 in the three games of the PAC-12 tournament.  They’ve been consistently dominating, winning six of their last seven by 15 points or more while winning 13 straight overall.  It’s surely worth noting that the Musketeers were only underdogs of +5 or higher twice this year; both times against Villanova.  They lost by double digits both times and failed to cover either pointspread.  There’s a class difference here that is greater than the current pointspread would indicate.

Legalized sports betting unlikely to cause significant rise in addiction

03.26.2015     06:55 AM     Printer Friendly

You can't talk about legalized sports betting without someone bringing up addiction. It's the go-to excuse for those against the "movement." But experts aren't so sure that legalization is going to lead to this alleged explosion of problem gamblers


"Sports betting in the United States is ubiquitous," Shaffer continued. "We have office pools, friendly wagers, it's not unusual when Super Bowl time rolls around for mayors of the competing cities to have a public bet. That's all sports betting. Now, is the community mature enough to tolerate legalized sports betting? Because when sports becomes legal, there will be some people who might not have bet on sports who will now jump in. Are those sports betting virgins, so to speak, going to be affected? I think the answer is 'yes.' But the real question is: 'How many are there and is there enough to influence the system?' "

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: San Diego Padres

03.25.2015     02:43 PM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

It's time to win in San Diego -- or at least score some more runs. The Padres brought in some big-name bats as well as ace James Shields which makes them instant contenders in the NL West.

San Diego Padres 
2014 W-L:
77-85 
2014 O/U: 61-95 
2014 Profits: -9 
2015 O/U Wins: 84.5 
2015 NL West Odds: +375 
Projected Starting Rotation: James Shields, Andrew Cashner, Ian Kennedy, Tyson Ross, Odrisamer Despaigne 
Key Departures: Seth Smith 
Key Additions: James Shields, Will Myers, Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, Derek Norris, Will Middlebrooks

Handicapper's Take: "After years of trying to do it with pitching and defense, the Padres committed to offense in a big way by completely overhauling their roster during the offseason. They also spent a ton of money to do so. Derek Norris, Will Middlebrooks, Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, and Justin Upton by default means a lot more runs -- even at Petco Park. And that should in turn mean more wins for a franchise that has averaged 75 the last four years. The betting markets though have responded in a big way by saying the 'new look' Padres are 7.5 wins better than 2014's squad. I like the starting staff with James Shields, Andrew Cashner, Tyson Ross, and Ian Kennedy as their top four starters. Shields has put a lot of miles on his arm (8 straight 200+ IP seasons) but greatly lessens his stress load with the switch in leagues and venue. Cashner, Ross, and Kennedy have all proved to be above average National League arms. And there's plenty of options at the bottom of the rotation with Odrisamer Despaigne, Brandon Morrow, and others. The biggest concern though is defense. As it is, the outfield of Kemp, Myers, and Upton has the potential to be really bad, especially considering how much space there is to cover. And the infield grades out as average at best defensively and well below average with the sticks. Overall, though, the offseason moves were bold and positive and should finally give bettors a chance to make a decent chunk of change backing the Padres." - Ian Cameron

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

03.25.2015     08:13 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia at Denver -11.5 O/U 209.5 
Recommendation: Denver


Not a real good situation for Philadelphia who travels to altitude tonight after an all-out effort last night in Sacramento. The 76ers posted 70 first half points but managed only 36 after the break. The 107-106 loss extended their road losing streak to 16 games. Philly’s propensity for offensive droughts will likely be a factor against fast paced and well rested Denver. The Nuggets are also expected to get backup combo guard Randy Foye back after a one-game absence. With the 76ers playing their third road game in four nights, the opposing tempo, depth, and venue will take its toll. Since assistant Melvin Hunt took over the Nuggets as head coach they’ve scored 100+ 10 times and gone 9-3 against the spread. Rather than just playing out the string, the Nuggets have committed to playing hard for 48 minutes and expect the same in this spot. Philly’s -14.6 points per game road scoring margin shows how susceptible they are to being blown out away from home and in Denver’s three opportunities as favorites under Hunt, they’ve won by 19,11, and 28. The latter was as -10 versus New York which indicates the Nuggets are capable of shooting fish in a barrel.

NBA Gambling: Miami Heat now favored to win Meltdown of the Year award

03.25.2015     07:08 AM     Printer Friendly

On the meltdown scale, this one is up there with some of best/worst...depending on what side you bet. With 9:52 left in the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat led the Milwaukee Bucks 81-65 and looked well on their way to a nice road win and cover. But then problems started to occur. From the 9:52 mark until just over a minute to go, the Heat netted six points. This of course allowed the Bucks to climb back into the game. We don't have the vocabulary to describe the ending so let's go to the tape.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Colorado Rockies

03.24.2015     07:36 AM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

With Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez healthy the Colorado Rockies are hoping to hit their way to respectability. They'll need to because they don't have the arms to win many low scoring games.

Colorado Rockies 
2014 W-L:
66-96 
2014 O/U: 79-70-13 
2014 Profits: -28 
2015 O/U Wins: 71.5 
2015 NL West Odds: +4250 
Projected Starting Rotation: Jorge De La Rosa, Jordan Lyles, Tyler Matzek, Kyle Kendrick, David Hale 
Key Departures: Michael Cuddyer 
Key Additions: None

Handicapper’s Take: “The two cornerstones of the organization, Troy Tulowitzki and Carlos Gonzalez, played a combined 161 games last season. If both can stay healthy for a reasonable amount of time, the Rockies can put together a fairly strong lineup and will have a shot to get to 70+ wins. But there are still lots of problems. Walt Weiss was given one more year to try to turn things around. He’s proven to be one of the weaker in-game managers in the league. Then there’s the pitching staff which grades out as one of the worst in the National League. Somewhat reliable lefty Jorge De La Rosa will be asked to carry the load despite turning 34 years old on opening day. Jordan Lyles is a perfect fit as a No. 4 starter but nothing more. Kyle Kendrick, the team’s opening day starter, is a 5.00 ERA waiting to happen. And Jhoulys Chacin was just released due to what many think is a damaged arm leaving Tyler Matzek and a committee to try to chew up innings. The bullpen was serviceable at times but spent much of the season taxed due to the starters’ inability to pitch deep into games. That is unlikely to change. As mentioned, at full strength, we can project this team to produce offensively. Keep in mind, on June 1 of last year the Rockies were .500 but stood little chance once the injuries started to pile up. The margin for error is very small but after last season’s disaster it’s hard not to envision a few breaks going their way.” - Ian Cameron

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Vanderbilt Commodores at Stanford Cardinal

Vanderbilt at Stanford -3 O/U 150 
Recommendation: Under


There's no doubt that the shot clock adjustment for the secondary college basketball tournaments has had an impact on pace of play and scoring. How significant though depends largely on the matchup. I've seen games where it didn't really matter and others where it was probably worth an extra 15 points and 10 possessions. Both oddsmakers and the betting markets had priced totals anywhere from 6-15 points higher than they would be under normal circumstances. Tonight's Vanderbilt-Stanford game is currently priced at 150; about 12-14 points higher than a regular season matchup. From watching both teams, neither has been forced to adjust much to the rule change as they typically play at a moderate pace. And of the four games they've played, three went well below 150. The lone exception was the crazy 109-point second half between Vandy and South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits were two days removed from a wild shootout win at elevation over Colorado State and clearly had nothing left in the tank. I'll also point out the extra importance on tonight's contest with the winner earning a trip to the semifinals at Madison Square Garden. In the end, it's going to take not only a strong offensive showing from both squads but some pace as well to top 150. I'll recommend looking the other way with a play on the under.

Sportsmemo's MLB Betting Preview: Milwaukee Brewers

03.23.2015     10:49 AM     Printer Friendly

copy_mlb_preview_2015].jpg

Despite last season's second half swoon, the Milwaukee Brewers were rather quiet this offseason. The starting rotation and lineup has the potential to be above NL-average but will they both click at the same time and more importantly produce for an entire season? Oddsmakers say no with the Brew Crew projected to be sub.-500.  

Milwaukee Brewers  
2014 W-L:
82-80 
2014 O/U: 75-83-4 
2014 Profits: -7.2 
2015 O/U Wins: 79 
2015 NL Central Odds: +875 
Projected Starting Rotation: Kyle Lohse,Matt Garza, Wily Peralta, Mike Fiers, Jimmy Nelson 
Key Departures: Yovani Gallardo  
Key Additions: Adam Lind

Handicapper’s Take: “With the exception of inking 31-year-old Adam Lind, the Milwaukee Brewers didn't do much of anything that suggests improvement. I'm OK with cutting bait with Yovani Gallardo as he appears to have peaked. Kyle Lohse will once again chew up innings though he's a longshot to do so at an above average level -- he faded the back half of last season. Wily Peralta and Jimmy Nelson are good pieces for now and the future. Matt Garza and Mike Fiers are serviceable when healthy -- Fiers is already dealing with arm troubles in spring training. No one on the starting staff will be overpriced in the betting markets and I do like the organization's philosophy of pounding the lower half of the strike zone as well as catcher Jonathan Lucroy who is commonly referred to as one of the best receivers in the game. Offensively, adding a left-handed power bat like Lind should help what is a right-handed dominant lineup. Plus a majority of the top arms in the NL Central come from the right side. Still, the lineup features a lot of all-or-nothing bats. Let's not forget last year when the Brewers literally hit their way to a 51-32 mark. The team's walk rate was historically low and it backfired in a big way as the team finished 31-48 with a horrific on-base percentage of .300 during that span. Expect another season with lots of highs and lows but the end result is your quintessential NL average club." - Andrew Lange

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Los Angeles Kings at New Jersey Devils

Los Angeles -150 at New Jersey O/U 5 
Recommendation: Los Angeles


The Los Angeles Kings face off against the New Jersey Devils tonight in another important "must win" game.  Last week I wrote about the desperation the Kings have been playing with, and that hasn't changed one bit.  Perhaps even more desperation has set in as they've lost their last two games against two very good teams in Anaheim and Vancouver.  Los Angeles opens up an East Coast road trip that will see them play five games in eight nights.  They are currently sitting four points behind (with one game in hand) the Winnipeg Jets for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.  I expect a maximum effort tonight from the Kings against a dead-in-the- water Devils team that isn't going anywhere.  Despite the decently high -150 line, I still see plenty of value.  The Devils are just 9-17 versus the Western Conference this season.  For years now the most dominate teams in the Western Conference have value when they go on the road to play the East and we can get a reduced price.  The Kings are 7-2-1 in their last ten road games and playing a solid road hockey style.  Expect them to get the job done tonight and start their road trip off on a high note.
