Birmingham Bowl Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. South Florida Bulls

Birmingham Bowl
Texas Tech vs. South Florida
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: South Florida -2 O/U 64.5
CRIS Current: South Florida -3 O/U 65.5
Recommendation: South Florida

On paper, there looks to be plenty of potential for points in the Birmingham Bowl with a pair of squads that rank in the top 30 in both ppg and ypg. However, with a 90% chance of rain expected, conditions could impact the amount of offense that is produced. Defensively, Texas Tech made strides this season. After allowing over 7 ypp in 2016, the Red Raiders shaved off nearly 1.5 ypp. That tied into a massive 11.7 ppg allowed improvement. But this defense still had problems, particularly against upper-tier offenses. Arizona State, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma averaged over 45 ppg against the Red Raiders. In the end, TTU’s stop unit, while no longer horrific, is still well below average. You could certainly make a case that USF is on par with those four aforementioned offenses. The key for the Bulls is balance and they have that in spades with Read more

College Football Gambling: Auburn's Johnson questionable for Peach Bowl

12.15.2017     09:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Auburn ran the ball nearly 600 times this season which comes out to 46 attempts per game. It's a huge part of the offense and the reason why Jarrett Stidham had the best season of any Tiger quarterback since Cam Newton. But the effectiveness of the run game could be limited due to various injuries. Kamryn Pettway, who rushed for over 1,200 yards last year but was banged up for most of this season, has been ruled out. And workhorse Kerryon Johnson who missed two games and still carried the ball 263 times, is questionable after hurting his shoulder in the SEC Championship. If Johnson is unable to go, the Tigers will turn to Kam Martin who averaged over 6 ypc on 68 attempts. His season-high attempts (14) came in Week 1 vs. Georgia Southern. Auburn is currently a -9.5 favorite over UCF in the Peach Bowl.

College Football Betting Update: SMU announces GA will call plays in Frisco Bowl

12.15.2017     09:31 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Here's your daily "WTF is going on with this Frisco Bowl matchup" nugget. SMU's newly appointed head coach, Sonny Dykes, announced that graduate assistant G.J. Kinne will call plays.


New head coach Sonny Dykes runs an Air Raid offense, not Morris' power-spread attack, so the responsibility of calling plays falls into the hands of Kinne, who worked mostly with the offensive line during his first season at SMU.

Hicks, who is playing a large role in SMU's game-planning for the Frisco Bowl, said that he will have some freedom to make his own decisions at the line of scrimmage while Kinne monitors from above.

"He's going to be upstairs and he's going to try to script most of our plays," Hicks explained. "Then I have range to kind of do what I like to do. But he knows what I want and I

College Football Betting: Dykes to coach SMU against former team in Frisco Bowl

12.13.2017     10:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Well, this is gonna be uncomfortable. Following the departure of Chad Morris to Arkansas, SMU hired former Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Dykes. Dykes, who most recently was an "analyst" for TCU, will reportedly coach the Mustangs in the Frisco Bowl against...Louisiana Tech. And making things even more awkward is that a few current SMU players wanted assistant Jeff Taylor to take over for Morris. Taylor was originally the "interim" but once the school hired Dykes, he bolted to Arkansas with Morris. Not knowing what to make of the situation, bettors literally haven't touched the game with CRIS's Dec. 4 opener of SMU -5 and a total of 70 still pasted across the board offshore.


“We want to continue to build on the success and the blueprint that Chad started. The most important thing we can do is get off to a good start by winning a bowl game,” Dykes said.

College Football Betting Preview: SMU Mustangs at Memphis Tigers

SMU at Memphis
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNN
CRIS Opener: Memphis -11.5 O/U 77
CRIS Current: Memphis -12.5 O/U 71.5
Recommendation: SMU

Seen this total get played down nearly a touchdown due to forecasted winds in the 20+ mph range. That’s an obvious concern for two teams in SMU and Memphis that like to throw the football. The passing games will still be on display but the deep shots could be limited. In terms of running the ball, SMU could have an advantage with stronger conference numbers than Memphis. Against AAC foes, the Mustangs average 5.2 ypc and 181.8 ypg. The Tigers are a notch below at 4.7 ypc and 150.7 ypg. Defensively, there isn't much that separates either squad. Memphis' overall numbers are slightly better but SMU's took a hit after back-to-back games against the potent offenses of UCF and Navy in which the defense allowed nearly 8 ypp combined.

I think the real storyline here is the seemingly inflated pointspread. Memphis is one of the hottest teams in the country having won and covered five straight (some got a push in 30-27 win over Navy). Read more

SMU at Navy
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Navy -4.5 O/U 67
CRIS Current: Navy -3.5 O/U 68
Recommendation: SMU

After starting the season 5-0, Navy's schedule started to tighten and they find itself on a rare three-game losing streak. The SOS difficulty continues on Saturday with a very capable SMU coming to town. The Mustangs rank among the nation's leaders in pass plays beyond 20 yards (49). That spells problems for a Navy secondary that has routinely been exposed against potent passing attacks. The Midshipmen surrendered 34, 31, 30 and 45 points in their last four games; showing an inability to get stops or get off the field on third down.

On the flip side, Navy’s triple option attack has not been as reliable as it’s been in past seasons. Offensively, the Middies are down about a half yard per play compared to 2016. And of over their last three games, they’ve averaged a very pedestrian 5.0 ypp. SMU’s defense is far from elite, but if you eliminate games vs. upper-tier TCU and UCF, the Mustangs are allowing a respectable 5.8 Read more

UCF at SMU
Saturday, 4:15 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener: UCF -12 O/U 73.5
CRIS Current: UCF -14.5 O/U 72.5
Recommendation: Over

The tremendous balance of UCF’s offense (313.1 ypg passing, 15th nationally; 216.5 ypg rushing, 26th nationally) is going to give SMU a ton of problems on Saturday. The Mustangs have an average at-best stop unit in terms of AAC play but it’s important to note they have yet to face Memphis, South Florida (who they don’t play), and UCF who arguably make up the top three offenses in the league. SMU’s numbers against the run look solid but eliminate the -8 yards they allowed to UConn and things get ugly. TCU, Houston, Cincinnati, and Tulsa all went for 245+ on the ground against the Mustangs. That resulted in 38.3 ppg allowed and the scary thing is UCF is just as explosive if not more than all for other those squads. A typical UCF output suggests it will have no trouble topping 45 points.

On the flip side, SMU should have some success offensively as well with quarterback Ben Hicks (60.1%, 19-6 TD-INT ratio) chucking Read more

College Football Handicapping: Houston hopes third string quarterback will solve offensive woes

11.01.2017     10:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Lack of consistent quarterback play has been a big problem for the Houston Cougars with Kyle Postma and Kyle Allen combining to throw more interceptions (10) than touchdowns (9). Last week, third stringer D'Eriq King entered that game on the third series and helped the Cougars engineer a 28-24 upset over the Bulls. Head coach Major Applewhite justifiably said King will start Saturday's game against East Carolina. King had previously been used as a receiver (29 catches, 264 yards). It's very conceivable he could run wild with East Carolina currently dead last nationally in total defense (577.6 ypg allowed).

Houston at South Florida
Saturday, 12:45 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener: South Florida -10 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: South Florida -11 O/U 56.5
Recommendation: South Florida

Houston has taken a major step back during the post Tom Herman/Greg Ward Jr. era. Major Applewhite is in his first season as head coach and the Cougars are a underachieving 4-3 SU, 3-4 ATS through seven games. One of the biggest issues has been mediocre quarterback play from the duo of Kyle Allen and Kyle Postma. And once thought to be a strength, the defense has been ripped apart in each of the last two weeks giving up 40+ points in consecutive games to Tulsa and Memphis. The Cougars were able to knock off Arizona prior to the return of Khalil Tate, they beat lowly Rice, notched a 7-point win against Temple but failed to cover and were able to take down SMU by double-digits despite being outgained by 81 yards. They also failed to come up with a key stop last week against Memphis as the Tigers came from behind and stole one on the road. Houston is now on a 1-4 ATS slide and facing without question its Read more
