College Basketball Betting Free Play: Loyola-Chicago Ramblers at Florida Gators

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Loyola-Chicago at Florida -16.5 O/U 151
Recommendation: Under

After running up and down the floor and hanging 100+ three out of its four games, Florida finds itself losers of two straight. The main culprit was defense as Duke and Florida State netted 1.13 and 1.12 points per possession, respectively. And despite winning, Florida's two opponents prior to that, Stanford and Gonzaga, also posted 1.1 ppp or more. Not having John Egbunu patrolling the paint hurts, but he missed time last year and the Gators still finished fifth in the country in defensive efficiency. The bottom line is Florida fell in love with trying to outscore foes and head coach Mike White was quick to call them on it.

“You guys have heard me use the word soft with this team,” White said late Monday night. “And we use the word with our team every day and it reared its ugly head tonight. Tonight was the epitome of soft.”

Ironically, nearly the exact same thing occurred last season when the Gators dropped two straight to both Duke and Florida State. The key however was they were able to fire back in a big way the next Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Orlando Magic at Phoenix Suns

11.10.2017     12:09 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Orlando -3.5 at Phoenix O/U 226
Recommendation: Orlando

Here’s the key quote, from Suns veteran big man Jared Dudley, after Phoenix lost their fourth straight game earlier in the week: "We are going to have a problem with consistency throughout the year... Since Jay took over, we might have had one or one-and-a-half practices. We've had a lot of games, and there is only so much you can go over, so much film you can do. I think he's a done great job so far. I just think that we need to ride this stretch before next week beginning a couple practices and going over certain things that we need to go through on the defensive end."

The Suns have gotten a little bit better since Jay Triano took over for Earl Watson following their dismal start, at least from an effort standpoint. But from a defensive standpoint, the Suns remain a bottom five team. It’s the same story on offense, no surprise for a team that suspended, then traded their starting point guard, leaving D-League veteran (but undrafted NBA rookie) Mike James as the starter at the point. This is not a strong homecourt either, as clearly evidenced by the Suns 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).

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders at West Virginia Mountaineers

Texas Tech at West Virginia
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener: West Virginia -6 O/U 80
CRIS Current: West Virginia -3.5 O/U 72
Recommendation: Over

West Virginia's offense has had no trouble moving the football this season. Yes, they benefitted from a three-game swatch of East Carolina, Delaware State, and Kansas but they also faced Virginia Tech and TCU away from home. Against the Hokies, WVU rolled up 592 yards and topped the 500-yard mark against the Horned Frogs as well. The Mountaineers ran into some difficulty in the red zone which resulted in only 48 points combined in both contests but the yardage was actually conducive to around 75 points.

Through five games, Texas Tech's defense has actually been somewhat of a strength as it has allowed a modest 5.5 yards per play. But those numbers are buoyed by games against FCS Eastern Washington, Houston, and Kansas. Arizona State hung 45 on the Red Raiders and Oklahoma State just missed the 600-yard mark in its 41-34 win. West Virginia is also the most balanced team Tech has faced and the only squad to rank Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Memphis Tigers at UConn Huskies

Memphis at UConn
Friday, 4 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: Memphis -14 O/U 70
CRIS Current: Memphis -13.5 O/U 72
Recommendation: Over

Things have not broken right for Memphis in the early going. The Tigers played their opening game against Louisiana-Monroe in the midst of the remnants of Hurricane Harvey – a torrential downpour throughout most of the contest. They had to cancel their game the next week because of Hurricane Irma in Florida. Following the wild upset win over UCLA, the Tigers looked flat against Southern Illinois the following week. Last week, facing UCF, the Tigers got whipped, turning the ball over four times on offense while allowing more than 600 yards on defense.

Make no mistake about it – Memphis is loaded with the type of skill position talent that UConn can’t cover. With QB Riley Ferguson returning for his senior year, 103 career starts back on the offensive line and the likes of RB’s Darrell Henderson and Patrick Taylor (combined more than 6.5 yards per carry) WR’s Anthony Miller, Phil Mayhue and Tony Pollard (37 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Kentucky Wildcats

Florida at Kentucky
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener: Florida -2.5 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Florida -1.5 O/U 43.5
Recommendation: Kentucky

Heading into the season, Kentucky talked all about playing at a fast tempo and putting up big points on a weekly basis. Three games into the season and the Wildcats have failed miserably at that claim and are ironically a better team for it. Fifth-year head coach Mark Stoops finally got the message that in order to compete in the SEC, you have to value the football, run the football, and play solid defense. Through three games, UK is +4 in turnover margin, owns a 121-70 run/pass ratio, and is allowing only 346.7 ypg. The competition comes up a little light (Southern Miss, Eastern Kentucky and South Carolina), particularly on the offensive end, but Saturday's opponent is another foe where Kentucky's newly-adopted strategy could thrive.

For seven of the eight quarters it has played, Florida's offense has been nothing short of abysmal. The Gators managed 11 rushing yards vs. Michigan and if you eliminate their Hail Read more

College Football Betting: SEC has been less than impressive thus far

09.18.2017     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things haven't been pretty in the SEC thus far save for a handful of teams. In non-conference play, SEC teams are currently 11-18-1 against the spread. Below is a quick, and yes cliche, look at the “good”, the “bad”, and the “ugly."

The good...

Vanderbilt - Big win over Kansas State ups the Commodores to 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS. SEC plays gets underway this weekend with Alabama headed to Nashville.

Georgia - Bulldogs look to be the favorite in the East after dominating Appalachian State and winning outright in South Bend. Currently a -6 home favorite over fellow "good" squad Mississippi State.

Mississippi State - Bulldogs have looked dominant on both sides of the football en route to a 3-0 SU/ATS start. At Georgia and at Auburn the next two weeks.

Alabama - Workmanlike effort through three weeks though failed to cover against Fresno State and Colorado State.

The bad...

Kentucky - Yes, the Cats are 3-0 SU but only 1-2 ATS and dead even from a total yardage perspective despite Read more

College Football Gambling Preview: UCLA Bruins at Memphis Tigers

UCLA at Memphis
Saturday, 9 am PT
CRIS Opener: UCLA-4.5 O/U 72
CRIS Current: UCLA -3 O/U 72
Recommendation: Memphis

The scoreboard results look decent for UCLA, with a 2-0 mark to open the season. Josh Rosen has put up some huge numbers, throwing for 820 yards with nine touchdowns and zero interceptions against Texas A&M and Hawaii. And yet, despite those monster stats from Rosen, the Bruins have all the makings of a bet-against team in early start TV action on Saturday.

Let’s start with this: Rosen has zero interceptions only because Texas A&M dropped the ball, with Rosen every bit as lucky as he was good in the Aggies late defensive meltdown. And we need to note the miserable spot here for the Bruins. They’ve got a major revenge matchup with Stanford on deck, coming off a remarkable comeback and an easy blowout. This game reeks of a legitimate flat spot for the road favorite, especially when we consider the noon Eastern Time start – that’s 9 AM on the body clocks for the kids from the West Coast.

There’s another Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Atlantic Owls at Wisconsin Badgers

Florida Atlantic at Wisconsin
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener: Wisconsin -33 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -31.5 O/U 60
Recommendation: Wisconsin

It was a nightmare matchup in Week 1 for Florida Atlantic as offensive-minded first-year head coach Lane Kiffin was tasked with game planning for Navy's option. The Owls managed to take a 10-7 lead midway through the second quarter but proceeded to be outscored 35-9 the rest of the way. The Midshipmen finished with 526 yards at 6.7 yards per clip. Now, FAU must figure out a way to stop an even more potent offense that can not only run the football but pass as well.

The Badgers struggled early on in Week 1 against Utah State and didn't score their first points until less than two minutes to go in the first half. Despite that, Wisconsin rolled up 59 points and and an ultra-balanced 234 yards on the ground and 244 yards through the air. While game planning for Navy is tricky, at least FAU could focus most of its efforts on stopping the run. The Owls' porous pass defense won't be able to hide on Read more

College Football Betting: Reactions abound following Week 1's results

09.05.2017     12:10 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The biggest obstacle for college football bettors this week is what to make of Week 1's results. A lot of teams looked and performed far different than their preseason expectations. Below is a quick look at those teams that had "abnormal" Week 1 results and how the betting markets reacted.

Oregon - Crushed FCS Southern Utah 77-21. Opened -10 vs. Nebraska and immediately pounded to -14. The Cornhuskers were outgained in their 43-36 win over Arkansas State

Northwestern - Limped past rebuilding Nevada, 31-20. The Wildcats trailed 17-7 at half. This week's opponent, Duke, rolled over FCS NC Central, 60-7. The game opened a pick 'em with Northwestern now favored by -3.5.

East Carolina - No shame in losing to FCS James Madison as the Dukes are currently the top team in the country. But the manner in which the Pirates lost is perhaps alarming: JMU outgained ECU 614-367. ECU's Week 2 opponent, West Virginia, opened -19.5 and is now -24.

North Carolina - Laying -12.5 at home to rebuilding Cal, the Tar Heels lost 35-30. Week 2's foe, Louisville, was bet up from -6.5 to Read more
