College Football Handicapping: Big Ten Divisional Crossover Games

06.19.2018     11:41 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Let's take an early look at the Big Ten's scheduling partners for the upcoming season. Two years ago, the Big Ten moved to nine league games which caused a home/road imbalance. This season, the East Division benefits by having two of its three crossover games and five of its nine league games at home. Ohio State, for example, doesn't play Wisconsin or Iowa the two top teams from the West based on season over/under wins. Penn State gets both the Hawkeyes and Badgers but both games are in Happy Valley. The league office must have it out for Nebraska; the Cornhuskers drew the East's Penn State and Ohio State in 2017 and must travel to Ann Arbor and Columbus while hosting Michigan State this season. Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota meanwhile play only one game apiece vs. the East Division's "Big Four" Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan State.

Ohio State (10.5) - vs. MIN, at PUR, vs. NEB
Penn State (9.5) - at ILL, vs. IOWA, vs. WIS

CFL Betting Free Pick: Edmonton Eskimos at Winnipeg Blue Bombers

06.14.2018     07:35 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Edmonton -7.5 at Winnipeg O/U 49.5
Recommendation: Over

We have seen some deflation in the total here in this 2018 CFL season opener between the Edmonton Eskimos and Winnipeg Blue Bombers taking place on Thursday night. Note this game will be airing live on ESPN2 in the United States as are all Week 1 games in the CFL. This is a rematch of the West Division Semifinal from last year’s playoffs which Edmonton won and covered on this field by a score of 39-32. Edmonton should have a terrific offense yet again this season with veteran QB Mike Reilly at the controls and coming off a very strong 2017 season. RB C.J. Gable transformed this offense after the Eskimos acquired him midway through last season in a trade with Hamilton. After Gable’s addition to the team in early October last season, Edmonton scored 28+ points in every remaining game and went 6-1 SU and ATS in the process. They became a very well balanced offense that was difficult to stop and even with Brandon Zylstra leaving for the NFL, the Eskimos still possess plenty of talented receivers for Reilly to throw the ball to with this Edmonton passing Read more

College Football Betting: Virginia Tech's offseason not going well

06.08.2018     10:01 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
We have our first offseason "oh shit" situation in college football. Last week, Virginia Tech lost two potential starting cornerbacks. Now it is being reported starting quarterback Josh Jackson may be suspended for academic issues. The Hokies, who ranked 13th in 2017 in total defense, were also hit hard by the draft including two first round linebackers. To make matters worse, Tech opens the season with a conference game at Florida State. South Point opened the game a pick 'em, CRIS opened FSU -5.5. Those sportsbooks choosing not to take the game off of the board have the Seminoles -7 home chalk.

College Football Gambling: Coaches offer opinions on legalized sports betting

05.31.2018     07:28 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
A few SEC football coaches weigh in on the potential climate of legalized sports betting. To no surprise, they are generally aware of its popularity; so much so that they receive emails regarding the betting outcome of their games.

“I think they pay attention to it. Right?,” Mullen said. “I’ve seen enough e-mails after game to know they pay attention to it.”

“They are usually pissed anyway,” Muschamp joked about the Gamecocks’ fan base.

College Football Gambling: Offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks post Week 1 lines

05.29.2018     01:33 PM     Printer Friendly
The college football season is three months away but that hasn't stopped sportsbooks from posting lines. Offshore, CRIS, 5Dimes, Greek, Heritage, BetOnline, and Jazz have sides available for nearly all of Week 1's games. Las Vegas' South Point was reportedly the first sportsbook in the world to hang numbers back on May 21. Below is a handy chart showing South Point's openers and CRIS's current numbers. Naturally, South Point's lines have gravitated towards CRIS's but there are some "opinions" for bettors to take a stab at. For the most part, both sportsbooks opened with similar numbers; the biggest discrepancy was the Michigan at Notre Dame game. South Point opened the Irish as -7 home chalk while CRIS made the Wolverines a -1 road favorite.

College Football Gambling: Reports indicate bettors prefer Alabama and under for tonight's title game

01.08.2018     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The college football season comes to end tonight with Georgia taking on Alabama in the National Championship in Atlanta (5 pm PT, ESPN). We've yet to see a big move on the side with the Crimson Tide opening -4 at CRIS and Pinnacle and currently -3.5 offshore and -4 in Las Vegas. According to one report, a number of large wagers were placed on Alabama at Vegas' CG Technology. The total opened 47.5 and was immediately bet under. It's since reached as high as 46.5 but was again pushed down to its current number of 45.5. According to Sports Options, 64% of the "public" is on Alabama and 61% in on the under.

Arizona Bowl Betting Preview: Utah State Aggies vs. New Mexico State Aggies

12.27.2017     09:42 AM     Drew Martin     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Drew Martin blog entry.
Arizona Bowl - Tucson
Utah State vs. New Mexico State
Friday, December 29, 2:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Utah State -3 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Utah State -4 O/U 62
Recommendation: Over

The Arizona Bowl features a pair of Aggies with Utah State in the postseason for the sixth time in seven years taking on New Mexico State who is making its first bowl appearance since the Eisenhower Administration. NMSU head coach Doug Martin led one of the more underrated turnaround in college football this season after combining for eight victories his first three years. A big part of the turnaround was the play of senior quarterback Tyler Rodgers. The Aggies rank fourth nationally in passing yards and the Arizona native Rogers ranked second in both completions (29) and passing yards (347.7) per game. The New Mexico State defense also improved by over a touchdown per game though the unit certainly benefited from a watered down Sun Belt as five teams failed to average over 21 ppg. Eliminate games against offensively inept UTEP, South Alabama, and Idaho, and Read more
