NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans

11.03.2017     11:50 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore at Tennessee
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Tennessee -4 O/U 43
CRIS Current: Tennessee -3.5 OU 43
Recommendation: Tennessee

The betting markets didn’t pay much attention when Will Fuller was activated for the Houston Texans heading into Week 4. The 1-2 Texans had already made the switch to Deshaun Watson at QB, but they were still averaging less than 18 points per game. With their deep threat back in the lineup, the entire offense started to click, and Houston proceeded to score 57, 34, 33 and 38 in their next four ball games. Fuller wasn’t (and isn’t) the focal point of the offense – he’s only caught 13 passes in the four games since his return. But his ability to stretch the field forces opposing defenses to respect his playmaking ability, opening up the running game and the shorter routes for other receivers to take advantage of.

What does any of this have to do with this week's game? Simple – Corey Davis is expected back in the lineup for the Titans this week! Tennessee’s #1 draft choice (the #5 Read more

NFL Gambling Alert: Cleveland Browns go with Kevin Hogan vs. Houston

10.11.2017     08:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The 0-5 Cleveland Browns announced quarterback Kevin Hogan will start Sunday's game at Houston in place of rookie DeShone Kizer. Hogan caught a lot of flak during his career at Stanford but played all four years, attempted over 1,110 passes, completed 66% of those passes, and posted a solid 75-to-29 TD-to-INT ratio. Meanwhile, Kizer played only two years and was notorious for struggling against better competition. Last season, in seven games against teams with a winning record, Kizer completed only 56% of his passes with a QB Rating of 124.1. Is Hogan the long term solution? Almost assuredly not. But the Browns have been able to move the ball with him under center. Following the announcement, the total was bet up from 44.5 to 47. 

 

"I've made the decision to start Kevin this week," Jackson said in a statement. "We've liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he's been in there and he will ‪start on Sunday because that's what we feel is best for our team at this point in

NFL Handicapping: Bengals get steamed up to -6.5 for TNF matchup vs. Texans

09.13.2017     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's something you don't see often. Team A closes as -2.5 Week 1 home chalk and proceeds to lose 20-0. Team A opens -3.5 home chalk for Week 2 and proceeds to get bet up to -6.5. That's the situation for the Cincinnati Bengals who play host to the Houston Texans on Thursday. But the Cinci "love" could perhaps also be Houston "hate" after the Texans were blitzed by Jacksonville at home, 29-7. Not to mention all of the off-the-field distractions with Hurricane Harvey. Oh yeah, don't forget rookie Deshaun Watson is expected to start.

Since 2000, NFL teams that were shutout at home are 25-13 (65.8%) ATS their next game. However, since teams that get blanked at home generally aren't very good, the straight up record is only 16-22.

NFL Preseason Gambling: Texans begin process of figuring out who will play quarterback

08.09.2017     08:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Houston Texans head coach Bill O'Brien discussed what he wants from his team -- particularly quarterbacks -- during tonight's preseason opener at Carolina. The Texans have taken a fair amount of money; bet from +3 to pick 'em at many offshore sportsbooks. Under O'Brien, the Texans are 8-4 ATS and 3-9 O/U in the preseason.


“Tom is going to start the game. Deshaun will play and Brandon will play,” Houston head coach Bill O’Brien said. “You have no idea how the game’s going to play out. You know what I mean? How long is this drive? How long is that drive? You have to play it by ear relative to how the game goes. But, all three quarterbacks will play in the game.”

“Playing everybody. Everybody that’s able to play, will play,” said O’Brien, is his fourth season with the Texans, having led the Texans to three straight 9-7 seasons, including AFC South titles the last two campaigns. “If they go out there and if they play well, maybe we’ll take

NFL Handicapping: A look at this weekend's four Divisional Round matchups

01.09.2017     12:19 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Atlanta’s offense was both visually and statistically (33.8 ppg and 415.8 ypg) dominant for much of the season. They play host to a Seattle defense that obviously has a strong pedigree, particularly in the secondary. But that dominant secondary has been exposed at times this year and was recently dealt a key injury with Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas out. Detroit couldn’t take advantage of Thomas’ absence as it was clear Matthew Stafford was not 100 percent due to a dislocated finger. And the Lions’ offensive line was banged up and missing two starters. In the end, the Seahawks surrendered only 231 total yards. It will be a much more difficult task this weekend as Atlanta’s offense is in a far better position to successfully move the football. Matt Ryan (38 TDs, 7 INTs, 69.9% completion rate) has a host of skill position weapons and like we saw against Arizona and Green Bay, Seattle can be exposed through the air. There are questions about Atlanta’s defense which ranked in the bottom third of the league in a number of categories. After struggling to run the football for virtually the entire regular season, Thomas Rawls went for 161 yards against Read more

NFL Gambling: Questionable quarterbacks highlight Wild Card matchups

01.05.2017     10:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This weekend's four Wild Card matchups feature four quarterbacks with Super Bowl rings. It also features a backup, a failed starter who may have lucked into getting his job back, and a third string rookie.

Miami's Matt Moore has looked semi-viable and will get the nod against Pittsburgh.


"Unless something changes drastically here in the next two days or three days, he's going into this thing as the starter," Gase said of Moore.



Houston's Brock Osweiler, who last time out got into a "heated exchange" with head coach Bill O'Brien, is slated to go against Oakland.


"What happens between Coach O'Brien and myself or whatever's said between Coach O'Brien and myself, it stays between us," Osweiler said. "That's where I'm going to leave that. My focus has moved toward Oakland."

NFL Gambling: Previewing all four Wild Card round matchups

01.03.2017     12:21 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saturday’s Oakland-Houston matchup is likely to be decided by which team can produce adequate quarterback play. Derek Carr suffered a season-ending injury in Week 16 against Indianapolis and in Sunday’s loss to Denver, Matt McGloin left the game with a left shoulder injury and is highly doubtful. That means bettors are likely to see rookie Connor Cook under center for a Raiders team playing in their first playoff game since 2002. Things aren’t much clearer for Houston with Tom Savage experiencing concussion symptoms and currently questionable. Savage’s status essentially forced Bill O’Brien into going back to the well with Brock Osweiler. Oakland had a noticeable lack of spirit in the loss to Denver despite having a with a chance to win the AFC West and earn a first round bye. The Raiders were physically manhandled by a Broncos team that was already eliminated from the playoffs. The biggest handicapping factor for this game is whether or not Oakland has the belief it can win a playoff game after seeing its top two quarterbacks go down with injuries. It makes sense why the total in this game is the lowest of the four games this weekend with most Read more

Using Strength of Schedule to Handicap the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs

01.02.2017     09:24 AM     Printer Friendly
The theory is actually quite simple; since 2002, teams with a higher Strength of Schedule (using Sagarin’s Ratings) are a remarkable 40-16 straight up and 40-15-1 against the spread (73% winners) regardless of price and location. Even more amazing is that teams with a SOS differential of 10 or more went 23-4 SU, 22-4-1 ATS (85% winners). Taking it step further, teams with a better SOS that are underdogs went 16-12 SU, 21-6 ATS. Underdogs with a SOS rating of 10 or better went 10-4 SU and 11-3 ATS. This is not a perfect science when it comes to grading plays. For example, last year the Steelers were -2/-2.5 and won 18-16. That said, with 14 years of results, this is one of the strongest publically known NFL trends available.

In 2002 the NFL expanded to its current format of 32 teams; eight divisions with four teams each. There wasn’t much upheaval as the league added the Houston Texans to the AFC and Seattle switched to the NFC. Two new divisions were created as the league kept the integrity of the established divisional rivalries pretty much intact. The playoff format was modified so that four division winners and two Read more

NFL Gambling News: Can the Minnesota Vikings continue to cover pointspreads?

10.10.2016     11:29 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
From 2010-13, the Minnesota Vikings were a middling organization with only one playoff appearance (2012) and three very unmemorable seasons under former head coach Leslie Frazier. Following Frazier’s departure, the team went out and hired highly respected Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. The organization also selected quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in the first round of the 2014 draft. Bridgewater assumed the starting spot in Minnesota’s fourth game after Matt Cassel was placed on injured reserve with a broken foot. The Vikings took their lumps and finished the season an unassuming 7-9 but it was clear that Zimmer was a difference maker. In the NFL, straight up wins and losses are largely correlated to a team’s pointspread success. The fact the Minnesota won only seven games but posted a 10-6 against the spread record was for bettors, a positive sign.

The lumps of 2014 paid off in spade as Minnesota skyrocketed to an 11-5 record including the NFC North division crown the following year. What’s even more amazing is the rate in which this team covered numbers. The Vikings went 4-1 ATS in the preseason and 14-3 ATS in the regular season Read more
