College Football Betting Preview: Central Florida Knights at UConn Huskies

Central Florida at UConn
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNN
CRIS Opener:
Central Florida -2 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Central Florida -4.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Central Florida

I’ve bet against UConn a number of times this season and the price looks reasonable to do so again here as they host the improving UCF Knights. UConn is not a team I trust to beat comparable foes. They have been outgained in five of their last six games including last week’s 42-27 loss to South Florida (529-378). The score could have been a much worse had it not been for a +4 turnover margin in UConn’s favor.

Central Florida has shown the ability to stop the run and that is the key to this game. The Knights are surrendering just 126.7 yards per game on the ground at a paltry 3.2 yards per rush. UConn’s offense simply doesn’t work if they struggle to run the football because QB Bryant Shirreffs is just not a good enough pocket passer to carry his team to victory through the air. He has completed no more than 56.4% of his passes in UConn’s last three games against Houston, Cincinnati and South Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Central Florida Knights at East Carolina Pirates

Central Florida at East Carolina
Saturday, 9 am PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
East Carolina -6 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: East Carolina -4 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: Central Florida

UCF went 0-12 last year.  Ten of their losses came by two touchdowns or more, as they should have – George O’Leary’s final season was a complete disaster.  That included a late November 44-7 home loss at the hands of East Carolina.  That was then, this is now. 

First-year head coach Scott Frost has made it very clear what he wants to install for the Golden Knights.  The former Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator wants to become “Oregon of the East."  Frost found his starting quarterback two weeks ago when previous starter Justin Holman got hurt.  In two games behind center, frosh McKenzie Milton; a dual threat dynamo against both Maryland and FIU. 

Here’s Frost’s quote: “One of the things that drew me to the job is I knew I could run a version of our offense that was practically identical to Oregon's because we Read more

College Football Betting: Oregon loses offensive coordinator Scott Frost

12.11.2015     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot of moving parts with all of the post-regular season coaching changes. Some plan on sticking around before taking over at their new post while others are already out the door. Oregon offensive coordinator Scott Frost took the UCF gig and is wisely heading to Orlando ASAP in order to douse the Knights' dumpster fire. That leaves the Ducks in a position of needing a play caller. It sounds as if head coach Mark Helfrich will fill the void though he said "everyone" will be potentially be involved. The Ducks don't play until January 2 vs. TCU in the Alamo Bowl.


“Scott will not be involved in our game, which is unfortunate for him,” Helfrich said. “But obviously he has a full plate in taking over at Central Florida.”

“Basically, we do everything collaboratively, anyway, from an offensive standpoint,” Helfrich said. “Myself, (wide receivers coach) Matt Lubick, (offensive line coach) Steve Greatwood, (running backs coach) Gary Campbell and

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Early season college football money burners

09.28.2015     08:16 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in my Wiseguy Report, I look an in-depth look at the 13 teams that started the college football season 3-0 ATS.   In general, those teams had quite a few commonalities:

“Non-descript teams that aren’t getting much hype or love from the preseason betting markets, the preseason publications or the preseason talking heads.  Teams coming off a bad bowl loss or a late season collapse are definitely worth an extra look, as are teams replacing an experienced, but perhaps underachieving, quarterback.”

I concluded the article with this paragraph: “These early season ATS outliers are NOT likely to continue their red hot runs.  The under-the-radar concept when it comes to finding strong ATS teams in early season play holds sway when it comes to early season results as well.  Many, if not most, of the elite ATS teams in college football this year have already lost at least once against the spread, putting them squarely under-the-radar as potential elite ATS squads moving forward."

If you bet on all 13 of the teams that entered last weekend with a 3-0 ATS mark, you lost money.  Read more

College Football Handicapping: Early line moves for Week 9

10.21.2014     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at some of the early moves in the Week 9 college football betting markets.

Miami (FL) at Virginia Tech
CRIS Opener: Virginia Tech -3
CRIS Current: Miami (FL) -3
Comment: Miami comes in off of a bye week. Last time Hokies were a home dog: vs. Florida State 11/8/2012. FSU won 28-22 but failed to cover as 12.5-point favorites.

Central Michigan at Buffalo
CRIS Opener: Central Michigan -3
CRIS Current: Central Michigan -4.5
Comment: Bulls off a bye week and the firing of head coach Jeff Quinn. OC Alex Wood takes over. Off win at Northern Illinois, CMU coughs it up five times in loss to Ball State.

Kent State at Miami (OH)
CRIS Opener: Miami (OH) -5.5
CRIS Current: Miami (OH) -7.5
Comment: RedHawks' lone win of the season came by one point over UMass. Kent off its first win (39-17 vs. Army). Two of the Golden Flashes' MAC losses came by a field goal.

Temple at UCF
CRIS Opener: UCF -11
CRIS Current: UCF -8
Comment: Temple was +8 in turnover margin before -4 mark in 31-10 loss at Houston. UCF's last three wins came Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: UCF Knights at Missouri Tigers

Central Florida at Missouri
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -10 O/U 56
CRIS CUrrent: Missouri -10 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Missouri -5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Central Florida

I appear to have a totally different opinion on Missouri compared to oddsmakers and other bettors. Last week Mizzou stood out as my top power ratings play of the week, yet the opening line reflected a much different opinion. From there the pro-Toledo and anti-Missouri money poured in and left Missouri -3 at game time. The dominant Tigers performance seems to have them back in the good graces of the betting community because they are listed at -10 this week in a game which my power ratings show them to be -5.

Central Florida is off a bye week after losing a close one to Penn State in Ireland in Week 1. The extra time has helped to heal injuries for key personnel like starting RB Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: UCF's looking to play younger players

02.12.2014     11:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Central Florida at Memphis -13.5 O/U 145.5

Losers of eight straight (1-7 ATS), UCF head coach Donnie Jones hinted of a youth movement – at least for the rest of the regular season. In last Sunday's 75-55 loss at UConn, UCF's starters played 31, 20, 18, 18 and 14 minutes.


“You focus on positive,” Jones said after his team’s most recent 75-55 loss to Connecticut. “That’s all you can focus on right now with some of these young guys. We were committed to starting those older guys and getting those young guys a chance. So, you look at the bench and I think we scored 34 points off the bench and that was with our young guys.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: College Basketball Pointspread Underachievers

02.10.2014     07:56 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week I wrote about the four best pointspread teams in the country in college hoops this year – Cleveland State, Villanova, Wichita State and Utah. Between the four, they combined to go 7-1 ATS over the past week, continuing to cover spreads even after doing so consistently for the past three months. In other words, the markets still haven’t caught up with these teams.

This week, I’m taking the opposite approach; examining the very worst pointspread teams in all of college basketball. Why are they so bad against the spread? Will they continue to be money losers as February rolls into March? And what statistical profile do these teams have in common that will help us identify them as early as possible next year? Let’s take a look!

I did a version of this column last year at this same time (second week of February). At that time, the single worst pointspread team in all of college basketball was Indiana-Purdue Indianapolis, abbreviated IUPUI. This year, IUPUI isn’t the single worst pointspread team in college hoops only because they’re tied with South Alabama and LaSalle at the bottom of the ATS Read more

College Football Handicapping: Early thoughts on Rose, Fiesta, Sugar, BCS and more

Rose Bowl / Rose Bowl / Pasadena, CA
255 Michigan State
256 Stanford -2 (Power Rating)

Game Opened: Stanford -3 Total Not posted
Current Line: Stanford -4 or -4.5 Total Not yet posted

Early Thoughts
1. Obviously a battle of mirror images as similar style offenses and arguably the nation’s toughest defenses meet. Both teams are extremely happy to be in this game which should equate to 60 minutes of full effort from each side.   
  
2. Can’t help but feel the edge in this game goes to Stanford because they’ve produced equally stellar defensive results against far superior offensive competition. Indiana, Nebraska and Ohio State are the best offenses MSU faced this season and they allowed 28, 28, and 24 points to those teams for an average of 26.7 per game. The Spartans overall defensive numbers are somewhat skewed by the seven lousy offenses they played.             

3. The passing game and offensive line will be vital to each team’s success and probably determine the Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 4 Injury Report

09.19.2013     11:44 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas QB David Ash remains a question mark (concussion) this week vs. Kansas State. In a 44-23 home loss to Ole Miss, back-up Case McCoy completed 24-of-36 passes for 196 yards and one TD without an interception.  Also, the Longhorns’ best WR Mike Davis is questionable due to a sprained ankle. Davis has hauled in 20 catches for 222 yards and four TDs in just three games. 

Mississippi State senior quarterback Tyler Russell is doubtful for Saturday’s home game vs. Troy. Russell threw for 2,897 yards with a 24-to-10 touchdown-to-interception ratio last season, but he might have a difficult time getting his starting job back. In his absence, Dak Prescott has played well. Prescott provides more of a running dimension, rushing for 134 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s heartbreaking loss at Auburn. He completed 15-of-28 passes for 213 yards on The Plains. 

Minnesota quarterback Philip Nelson is questionable vs. San Jose due to a strained hamstring. Nelson is an excellent scrambler so a hamstring issue could diminish his effectiveness more than it would most other quarterbacks. He has rushed for 221 yards and three TDs in leading Read more
