NFL Handicapper Betting Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Green Bay Packers

Baltimore at Green Bay
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Batimore -2.5 O/U 38
CRIS Current: Baltimore -2 O/U 38
Recommendation: Baltimore

We’ve seen the Packers offense for three games without Aaron Rodgers now, and Green Bay hasn’t been able to move the football effectively in any of them. Yes, the Packers were able to beat lowly Chicago by a TD last week; playing with a rookie QB in a game where Bears head coach John Fox literally gave away a touchdown with an ill-fated challenge. But they gained only 5.3 yards per play for the afternoon, converted only one of their three red zone chances into touchdowns, and did not pass the eye test any more than they did the previous week in a Monday Night Football home loss to the Lions.

To make matters worse for the Packers, the injury bug continues to bite Mike McCarthy’s squad. Their offensive line is riddled with key losses once again, with Brian Bulaga placed on IR and three starters listed as questionable for Sunday. They’ve got injuries all over the place on defense too, with Morgan Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Baltimore vs. Jacksonville
Sunday, 6:30 am PT - Yahoo.com
CRIS Opener: Baltimore -4 O/U 40.5
CRIS Current: Baltimore -4 O/U 39
Recommendation: Jacksonville

Joe Flacco missed all of preseason; one of many injured veterans for the Ravens in August. Baltimore lost nearly a dozen guys to IR in training camp, losing key bodies on both sides of the football. Flacco has looked rusty, with only 338 passing yards through two games. And he hasn’t been tested – the ravens have not yet trailed this season. The Ravens, as a team, have only one explosive play on offense through two games. They’ve rushed for under four yards per carry. And now the key to their offensive line, six time pro bowler Marshall Yanda, has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his ankle last week.

Yanda’s injury cannot be overstated. With him gone, this team is now without three of their five OL starters from last year, as well as their top two backups from a season ago. This would be a problem for any offense. It matters even more with a QB and skill position talent Read more

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore +2.5 at Miami O/U 37.5
Recommendation: Baltimore

The Miami Dolphins have no business as favorites in this ballgame. One of the biggest ‘red flags’ in preseason for any team – let alone a favorite – is when a coach starts whining about his injury situation. That’s exactly what Adam Gase has done this week. When a coach can’t handle any more injuries, the entire team seems to feel it, and you tend to see significantly less intensity for a meaningless August game. And Gase has been dealing with the cumulative effect of the injury bug all week, even cancelling practice on Tuesday to go through a ‘no pads’ walk through.

Gase has every reason to whine considering the state of his offensive line right now. Jay Cutler is supposed to get his first game action with Miami here, but how long he’ll be on the field is very much in question, especially given the state of the Dolphins offensive line right now. Center Mike Pouncey (hip) isn’t likely to play. Right tackle Ja’Wuan James (shoulder), has missed practices all week as has guard-center Kraig Urbik (back). Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Eagles at Baltimore Ravens

Philadelphia at Baltimore
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Baltimore -6 O/U 42.5
CRIS Current: Baltimore -6 O/U 40
Recommendation: Baltimore

I’m getting a lousy vibe from the slumping Eagles, just 2-8 SU and ATS since their hot 3-0 start back in September.  Philly’s offense has been limited all year, and that hasn’t changed.  Rookie Carson Wentz has hit a wall, now that opposing coordinators have plenty of film to study.  Top RB Ryan Matthews is banged up; change of pace back and special teams maestro Darren Sproles is out, top WR Jordan Matthews is banged up and their offensive line is struggling in every way.

Defensively, the Eagles have gone downhill over the past month and a half.  They’ve notched only eight sacks in the last seven games, and have permitted at least two TD passes in eight of their last ten overall.  The Eagles scored another defensive touchdown last week against the Redskins, but they still lost and failed to cover the spread; a major ‘red flag’ moving forward.

And then there are the rumbles in the Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Dallas Cowboys

Baltimore at Dallas
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Dallas -6.5 O/U 43.5
CRIS Current: Dallas -7 O/U 44
Recommendation: Baltimore

No team in the NFL is hotter than Dallas, winning and covering each and every game since their Week 1 home loss to the Giants. Over the last month, they’ve won tough road games at Green Bay and Pittsburgh. But at home, they were lucky to get past Philadelphia and even luckier to cover the spread in overtime; continuing a long term trend of struggles to cover as a home favorite throughout the Jason Garrett era.

The Cowboys left it all on the field with their big win over the Steelers last week, a wild game that went back and forth through the final minute. Up next? A huge divisional showdown against hated rival Washington on Thanksgiving Day; a short week ahead. In between? This non-conference affair against a Ravens team; a game they’ve got to win by more than a TD to cover the spread. For Dallas to overcome this flat spot, they’d need an opponent they can just steamroll, like they did to the Browns a few weeks back.

But the Ravens Read more

College Football Handicapping: Michigan's Harbaugh says status of Speight still unknown

11.15.2016     10:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is playing coy when it comes to the status of starting quarterback Wilton Speight. Despite reports indicating Speight has a broken collarbone, Harbaugh said he's "questionable" for Saturday's game against Indiana. It's reasonable to think we'll see John O'Korn under center. O'Korn put up big numbers (3,117 yards, 28 TDs) for Houston back in 2014 and has seen time during Michigan's numerous blowout victories.


"I never really get into (that) talk, I'm not a doctor. I'd hate to be the third person talking about these things," Harbaugh said on the Big Ten teleconference Tuesday. "He remains questionable for Saturday and we'll reevaluate after that."

"All the quarterbacks were really playing well in the fall (camp) and I think all of our quarterbacks have continued good play, improving play (each week)," Harbaugh said Tuesday. "Wilton's more obvious for you and the public and opponents because he's been playing in games. But you've seen John and Shane in games as

NFL Gambling: Baltimore Ravens fire offensive coordinator Trestman

10.11.2016     08:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Baltimore Ravens fired offensive coordinator Marc Trestman following Sunday's 16-10 home loss to Washington. The Ravens topped 20 points in only eight of Trestman's 21 games. They currently rank 22nd in total yards per game (338.2) and 28th in yards per play (4.8). Quarterbacks coach Marty Mornhinweg was promoted. Baltimore is currently a +3 road underdog at the New York Giants for Week 6.


"After very careful consideration, I have decided to make a change to our offensive coaching staff and have replaced Marc Trestman with Marty Mornhinweg as offensive coordinator for the rest of the season," coach John Harbaugh said in a statement.

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan Wolverines at Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Michigan at Rutgers
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -25.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Michigan -30 O/U 53
Recommendation: First half over

With the exception of last week's 14-7 win over Wisconsin, Michigan has played the role of bully this season with wins by 39, 17, 37, and 60. There were 149 points score in the first half of those four games (37.3 avg) with a vast majority courtesy of the Wolverines. Head coach Jim Harbaugh came into the season with a reputation of playing it vanilla with a big lead. This year, he's been far more aggressive. We've even seen multiple instance in which backup quarterback John O'Korn entered the game late during a blowout and proceeded to take shots down field.

This week's opponent, Rutgers, offers another opportunity to “name the score.” The Scarlet Knights managed just seven points against Iowa and were shutout last week in Columbus, 58-0. Chris Ash has his work cut out for him and it's tough to envision his squad having much success in this contest. And while much of the focus is on the offense's struggles, the Scarlet Knights' defense Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Ranking all 32 NFL teams heading into Week 1

09.06.2016     08:06 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL Preseason is in the rear view mirror, with Week 1 kicking off on Thursday as Carolina travels to Denver as -3 road favorites.  Here’s how I have all 32 teams ranked heading into the regular season.

1. Carolina Panthers  - Cam Newton and Carolina’s offense are poised to rank among the most potent attacks in the NFL.  Watch out for the Funchess/Benjamin WR duo!

2. Seattle Seahawks - Russell Wilson gave an MVP caliber performance in 2015, but his ability to repeat that effort could be stunted by the Seahawks offensive line woes.

3. Green Bay Packers - The Packers come out of camp with a full complement of healthy weapons for Aaron Rodgers, good news after Rodgers numbers took a big hit without Jordy Nelson last year.

4. Arizona Cardinals - Arizona returns just about every key player on both sides of the ball from a team that ranked among the NFL’s elite in 2015.

5. New England Patriots - If Tom Brady was at quarterback, this team would be ranked #1.  But with Jimmy Garappolo behind center, the Pats take a modest tumble in my rankings.

6. Kansas City Chiefs - Andy Reid’s Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Preseason Handicapping Part II

08.22.2016     09:04 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, in Part I of my Wiseguy Report on NFL Preseason Betting strategies, I listed a handful of key mantras for winning in August. Don’t confuse a team’s regular season capabilities with their preseason goals.  Bet on teams in August that have a battle for their starting QB spot.  Know your coaches and their track records in various roles (and in various weeks).  And bet information, not opinions. 

All of those stand as solid mainstream advice; the stuff the markets are paying attention to.  This week, in Part II — preseason advanced handicapping methods —  I’m going to write about the things that the markets don’t pay enough attention to...but they probably should!

Let me start with a bold statement: "3" is not the most important key number when it comes to betting in the NFL reason.  Neither is "7".  No, the most important pointspread number in August is the number "1."  Read more
