College Football Gambling News: Saban pleased with Kiffin's first game as OC

09.02.2014     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Alabama racked up 538 yards but settled for four field goals in Saturday's 33-22 win over West Virginia. It was offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin's debut for the Crimson Tide and Nick Saban wants everyone to know he "did a great job."


"You know, the guy is a really good coach now, all right," Saban said. "Y'all need to fess up to that. And most places that don't like him is because he left and they were mad because he left. They weren't mad about anything he did while he was there.  Just do a little research on that."

"Some people have a tremendous amount of knowledge, but you have to be able to articulate it to the players in a way they can understand it and it's simple for them to go out and execute it," Saban said earlier in the month. "Systematically, Lane does that with the players he coaches and with the entire offense, which I think is really, really important."

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

USC at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame pk O/U 52
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -3 O/U 51
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Notre Dame -4.5
Brian Edwards' Recommendation: Notre Dame

The stakes are usually much higher when Notre Dame and USC collide on the gridiron. When these bitter rivals met last season, the Trojans had a chance to deny the Fighting Irish a trip to the BCS Championship Game.

This time around, however, we have a pair of unranked teams with two losses apiece.

Nevertheless, games all pay the same when it comes to sports wagering. As of late Thursday morning, most books had Notre Dame (4-2 SU, 1-4-1 ATS) favored by three with a total of 50.5.

Gamblers can back the Trojans to win outright for a +130 return (risk $100 to win $130). For first-half bets, Notre Dame is a one-point chalk with a total of 25.

College Football Betting News and Notes - Week 7

Three weeks, three total meltdowns for Air Force in the second half. The end result for the Falcons was 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS.

at Nevada - AFA had a 35-24 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Nevada scored back-to-back touchdowns with six minutes remaining to win 45-42.

at Navy - AFA led 10-7 at half but was outscored 21-0 after the break and not only lost straight up but failed to cover +13.5.

vs. San Diego State - Catching +3.5, AFA was all but handed a pointspread cover with a 20-6 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Three SDSU touchdowns later the final score read 27-20.

It was only one game, and against a porous Arizona defense, but USC looked a lot more aggressive following the departure of Lane Kiffin. Cody Kessler averaged nearly 10 yards per attempt and the Trojans ran 75 plays and racked up 546 yards. Also note that after feasting on a handful of sub-par offenses, USC's defense allowed both Arizona State and Arizona to move the ball will relative ease (1,120 yards, 7.6 ypp combined). It'll be interesting to see what stop unit shows up this weekend in South Bend. In theory, the Irish should be the type of offense the Trojans can contain. Read more

College Football Gambling: USC Trojans use bye week to regain focus

Arizona at USC -5.5

Following Lane Kiffin's departure, USC had a bye week to adjust to life under interim head coach Ed Orgeron. Early reports use terms like "looser" and "enthusiastic" when describing the state of the team. Wide receiver Marqise Lee (knee) remains questionable for Thursday's game against Arizona. Dating back to the start of last season, the Trojans are on a 4-14 ATS run.


“I don’t feel more relaxed,” Kessler said. “I feel more focused because I don’t want to mess up because you don’t want Coach O yelling at you.”

“I need to be careful about over-emphasizing the emotional part,” Orgeron said. “We need to play with great poise.”

I'll admit I was a little turned off by Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster's verbal distaste for having to play Georgia Tech on short rest. I knew Tech's defense was good but the Yellow Jackets are notorious for taking advantage of ill-prepared teams. Foster however may have been sandbagging because the Hokies went down to Atlanta and completely shut down GT's running game (129 yards). And what makes Foster's defense impressive is how they've progressively gotten better against Tech's offense: 2010 - 426 total yards, 2011 - 340 total yards, 2012 - 288 total yards, and last week - 273 yards. Saturday's win marked the Hokies' fourth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets. And I'll throw a little praise Logan Thomas' way. The senior QB came up with arguably his best performance in two seasons: 19-of-25, 221 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, 58 yards rushing, 1 TD.

If you follow me and the Sportsmemo blog's game previews you know that I've been having a field day betting against SMU. The Mustangs put up a little better effort against TCU (10-7 lead at halftime) but once again broke down when times got tough. The Horned Frogs put up 31 in the fourth quarter including a kick Read more

College Football Betting: USC fires Kiffin, UConn does the same with Pasqualoni

09.30.2013     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly

Not a good week for underachieving teams heading into a bye week. On Sunday, USC's Lane Kiffin was shown the door after the Trojans were smoked 62-41 at Arizona State. Assistant Ed Orgeron was named interim head coach. The Trojans have a week to prepare for Arizona. UConn followed suit and got rid of Paul Pasqualoni following a 41-12 loss to Buffalo. Pretty amazing that the Huskies won at Louisville late last season and had Michigan on the ropes in Week 3.

College Football Handicapping: First half and second half totals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The growing popularity of first half and halftime betting indicated to me that it was something I needed to begin charting. Last season was the first one in which I kept complete records and now three weeks into 2013 it seems like a good time to use this week’s article on examining some early team results.  

Extreme Teams: (Teams that have had the same result in all four halves thus far)

Central Florida – The Knights have used their defense and lack of opponents’ offense through two games to record unders in each of their four halves of play. On paper it seems as if they should have been able to at least record one over since their totals haven’t been set that high and their skill position players and offensive line have held dominant advantages. However, their defense has simple been lights out allowing just 4.2 and 3.5 yards per play in their first two games. They’ve also been in a sizeable lead position at halftime which has led them to play methodical, clock draining second half football. This week presents their first real test as they travel to Penn State which possesses a Read more

College Football Gambling: USC's issues may also be in the locker room

09.11.2013     08:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Every year, there are always one or two teams that have issues with players and coaching staffs (often lame duck head coaches) not being on the same page. This typically doesn't occur however until late in the season following a bad loss or when preseason expectations fall way short. It is well documented that USC has had on-field issues, particularly at the quarterback position, but considering last year's debacle, this is a potentially toxic situation that could – or has – lead to a divided locker room. News recently came out that following the loss to Washington, star wide receiver Marqise Lee told reporters that there would be a "players only" meeting. Lane Kiffin denied it took place and later said those types of things are essentially a waste of time. As bettors we're trained to err on the side of caution when it comes to stories that are often inflated by the media – this perhaps being an example. But we're dealing with a very opinionated coach at a school where expectations are very high. The loss Read more

Another week void of any significant upsets. Washington State beat USC as over a two-touchdown underdog while Navy dispatched of Indiana as a double-digit underdog. Needless to say, most rec bettors who like to four- and five-team moneyline parlay big favorites have yet to hit many road blocks.

With most offshore books now offering lines on FBS vs. FCS games bettors will have another crack at betting against Ron Turner and his Florida International squad. Yes, the Panthers played two teams in Maryland and UCF that they probably would have lost to any other season, but it was the way that FIU lost (43-10, 38-0) that has them vying with Idaho and New Mexico State for the label of Worst Team in the Country. Don't sleep on this week's opponent Bethune-Cookman who last season rushed for 233 yards on Miami and hung tough for the first half. The year before that B-C outgained the Canes 422-335.

After a dismal showing in its opener at Virginia, BYU wasn't on the radar of many bettors. Meanwhile, a lot of folks were drinking the Texas kool-aid after they dismantled woeful New Mexico State. And for a sophisticated as the betting markets are portrayed at times, there is no Read more

College Football Totals Betting: Applying what we saw in Week 1

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The four to six day handicapping bridge from college football's Week 1 to Week 2’s bets and recommendations has often been labeled the trickiest one of all. Throughout late spring and then the summer, extensive hours were put in by many on each side of the counter to formulate opinions on how the 126 FBS teams will fare this season and plays were made for last week’s games accordingly. Now, with a full week of data it’s time to assess the accuracy of initial projections and react to this week’s matchups. For myself, raw power ratings are adjusted Sunday morning and projected lines calculated anywhere from 3-8 hours before the openers become available. I’ve learned and constantly stated for the 21 years I’ve been in this business that each situation is individual and there is no blanket statement or theory that applies to how heavily you should react. Less can be best and more may be necessary while no reaction at all may be correct too. For this season’s opening article, let’s take a look at how to approach Week 2 from a totals perspective.

Last week we saw a couple of important elements that led to instances of huge second Read more
