College Basketball Betting Free Play: Miami Hurricanes at Syracuse Orange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami -2.5 at Syracuse O/U 135.5
Recommendation: Miami


Syracuse is a hot mess right now, worthy of fading at every reasonable opportunity!  And with the Orange priced near pick ‘em in a game against a superior foe, this certainly looks like a reasonable opportunity to bet against a squad in the midst of a pointspread free-fall.

To say that Syracuse hasn’t beaten anybody all year would not be an understatement.  Their signature victory in non-conference play came against Monmouth.  Their seven other wins?  Colgate, Holy Cross, South Carolina State, North Florida, Eastern Michigan, Boston University and Cornell, not exactly a group of ACC caliber foes.

What’s wrong with the Orange?  Let’s start with their defense.  Jim Boeheim’s legendary, trademark 2-3 matchup zone.  In years past, this defense has created turnovers in bunches and limited opponents open looks, particularly in the paint.  That hasn’t happened this year. Syracuse has allowed a 1.21 assist-to-turnover ratio overall – waaaaaaay above Boeheim’s historical norms – despite facing Read more

Quick Lane Bowl Betting Preview: Maryland Terrapins at Boston College Eagles

Maryland vs. Boston College
Quick Lane Bowl - Detroit, Mich.
Thursday, 11:30 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Boston College pk O/U 45
CRIS Current: Maryland -2.5 O/U 43.5
Recommendation: Boston College/Under

Projected snooze fest as Maryland (88th) and Boston College (115th) boast well below average offensive capabilities. Passing has been a major problem for the Terps (174.0 ypg) and the Eagles (144.2 pypg) which has placed an extreme burden on their respective ground games. Maryland has shown flashes of being a strong rush team and if you remove its sack yardage, the ypc average comes out to a solid 5.59. Boston College hasn’t found any success on the ground and they only averaged 4.0 ypc or more in three of 12 games (Georgia Tech, Wagner and Syracuse). Defensively however, BC has the big edge with the 8th ranked total defense, 8th ranked rush defense, and 32nd ranked pass defense.  

While the overall statistical numbers do not show much separation between these teams, there is one fundamental aspect that could be a difference maker. Throughout the season it has been evident Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons at Charlotte Hornets

Detroit at Charlotte -5 O/U 202
Recommendation: Charlotte


Let me start with the basic concept here.  Yes, Detroit got their starting point guard Reggie Jackson back on the floor for their last two games after Jackson missed the first six weeks of the season due to injury.  But while getting Jackson back running the point is a good thing for Stan Van Gundy’s squad in the long term, in the short term it does NOT make them a better squad.  For at least the next few games, while Jackson gets re-acclimated with his teammates, the Pistons base power rating number must be lowered, not raised.  Yet the markets have moved in the opposite direction.

Van Gundy, following Jackson’s first game back on the floor, a loss to Orlando: “We were terrible defensively, terrible. We didn’t put enough into it to win the game. They deserved to win. I think most nights we bring a decent effort. But we’ve been just too up and down defensively. We looked really slow tonight.”

Jackson’s quote: “It's going to take some time to get acclimated with my teammates again, but (the knee) felt good. I Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri State Bears at Southeast Missouri Redhawks

Missouri State -9 at Southeast Missouri O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Over


Southeast Missouri is your typical up-tempo, no defense low mid-major. The Redhawks appear a bit improved over last season's 5-24 disaster with three wins already over DI competition. Of 2015's 27 games against DI teams, on only seven occasions did SEMO net better than a point per possession. This season, they've done in four times and have a shot to do it again on their home floor this evening. Missouri State is another team that looks much improved on the offensive end. They hung 96 against Alabama A&M and 91 against Jacksonville State to kick off the season. Not exactly stiff competition but SEMO isn't either as the Redhawks rank near the bottom nationally in a number of defensive categories. The Bears saw more resistance in their last three games against DePaul, North Dakota State and Air Force but still averaged a respectable 67.7 ppg with all three games at 68 possessions or less. There's also an injury to be aware with Missouri State's Obediah Church unlikely to play due to an bum knee. He's a strong "under" player with limited offensive ability and a big Read more

NFL Gambling News: New Orleans quietly cashes tickets, Arizona shows no signs of improvement

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, we discussed one team on the rise and one team on the decline and their trajectory played out as such this past Sunday. Tampa Bay won its third straight game; beating Seattle outright as +6 home underdogs. Meanwhile, Cincinnati lost yet another contest both straight up and against the spread to division rival Baltimore. This week, I’ll target two more teams that should offer good “bet on” and “bet against” opportunities in the coming weeks.

The New Orleans Saints are 5-6 but still just two games back of first place Atlanta in the NFC South. And despite that losing record, the Saints have posted a profit-producing 8-3 mark against the spread. Thanks to an 0-3 start, New Orleans has spent the better part of the season as an undervalued commodity. Quarterback Drew Brees, who had another huge game in Sunday’s blowout win against Los Angeles, is putting up MVP-type numbers. And the offense as a whole has piled up at least 20 points in all but one game. But the storyline has been the improvement of the defense. New Orleans was historically bad last season but under the watch of defensive coordinator Dennis Allen, the unit has gone Read more

UConn at Boston College
Saturday, 10 am PT
CRIS Opener:
Boston College -7 O/U 36
CRIS Current: Boston College -7.5 O/U 37.5
Recommendation: Boston College

How many bettors are going to tune into this one as UConn and Boston College hook up for a meaningless late season non-conference game? At 4-6 and with two winnable games remaining (vs. UConn, at Wake Forest) there is hope for a postseason berth for BC. However, the team's morale may be a bit deflated after losing to Louisville and Florida State be a combined score of 97-14. Meanwhile UConn won't be going bowling with just one win in its last seven tries the closest loss was by seven points. And while getting worked over by the Cardinals and Seminoles is somewhat expected, the Huskies suffered a similar far albeit against far weaker competition with back-to-back losses to East Carolina and Temple by a combined score of 62-3. UConn does comes in off a bye week and Sideshow Bob Diaco is saying all the right things about being "refreshed" and Read more

College Football Gambling: Southern Miss hasnt covered a pointspread since September

11.15.2016     11:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the biggest disappointments this college football season has been the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. After opening the campaign with a 44-35 road win at Kentucky, USM finds itself 5-5 and hasn't covered a pointspread since late September. Starting quarterback Nick Mullens missed last week with a concussion as the Golden Eagles were torched by Old Dominion 51-35. He's currently questionable for Saturday's game at North Texas. But the main problem for USM has been defensively. Check out the number of "big" plays this unit has surrendered this season:

40+ yards: 18 (119th nationally)
50+ yards: 13 (125th nationally)
60+ yards: 11 (126th nationally)
70+ yards: 7 (127th nationally)
80+ yards: 3 (122nd nationally)

Perhaps this weekend will serve as an opportunity to shore things up. North Texas is currently the only team in C-USA averaging less than 5 yards per play.

Maryland at Michigan
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -30.5 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Michigan -31 O/U 54
Recommendation: First Half Over

Another week, another first half over for the Michigan Wolverines as they jumped out to a 27-10 lead over Michigan State. On the season, Michigan has outscored its opponents 229-38 in the first half and a more modest 144-55 in the second half. Below are the halftime scores of UM's eight games.

Michigan's First Half Scores
vs. Hawaii - 35-0
vs. UCF - 34-7
vs. Colorado - 24-21
vs. Penn State - 28-0
vs. Wisconsin - 7-0
at Rutgers - 43-0
vs. Illinois - 31-0
at Michigan State - 27-10

Under the watch of Jim Harbaugh, the Wolverines have excelled at a lot of things this season, most notably beating up on the weak. Wisconsin, and its ninth-ranked defense, was the only team to put up any real type of resistance against this offense. This week sets up well for another lopsided halftime score with Maryland headed to the Big House. Since holding Purdue to 205 total yards, the Terps have Read more

NFL Handicapping: NFC East on the rise

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFC East has been jokingly called the “NFC Least” by pundits for years because of how weak of a division it had become but it is starting to gain some of its tenacity and strength back. This is the only division in the NFL where each team is above .500 and each of the four teams have a realistic shot to capture the division crown. I will examine where they stand following Week 7.

Dallas Cowboys (5-1 SU, 5-1 ATS)
The Dallas Cowboys have shown no ill effects of being without Tony Romo or Dez Bryant the last few games. They've been propelled by the play of two rookies: quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys are currently third in the NFL in yards per play (6.1) and total yards per game (401.5) thanks to not only Prescott and Elliot but arguably the league's best offensive line. The defense which was thought to be a major area of concern for this team has benefited from the offense sustaining drives and keeping them fresh later in games. The stop unit ranks in the middle of the pack in most defensive categories but have managed to outperform expectations. Dallas comes out of their bye week with a divisional Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Tennessee Volunteers

Alabama at Tennessee
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -10.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Alabama -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Over

The Tennessee defense is in a world of hurt right now, terrible news as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.  The Vols stop unit has, quite simply, been gutted with key injuries.  They’ve lost Cameron Sutton, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Cortez McDowell from their secondary; Quar’te Sapp and Darrin Kirkland from their linebacking corps and Danny O’Brien from the defensive line.  Sutton, Sapp and O’Brien have all been lost to season ending injuries, losing top playmakers from all three defensive units.

Of that group, only McDowell has a chance to play this week, and even that’s very ‘iffy’.  No surprise, then, that the Vols surrendered ten plays of 20 yards or more in their double overtime loss at Texas A&M last Saturday.  And, after that wild A&M on the heels of the wild Georgia game and the wild Florida game; a Vols defense that hasn’t had a bye yet certainly could use Read more
