College Football Betting Preview: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Alabama Crimson Tide

Western Kentucky at Alabama
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -25.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Alabama -29.5 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: Alabama

One of the themes in college football from last week was how bad the SEC looked. Seven losses in the opening weekend was the most ever for the conference, and even in victory, Florida and Tennessee struggled against lesser opponents. For a little over a quarter, it looked like Alabama was going to be part of the ugliness as they trailed USC 3-0 and failed to move the ball on offense. Three quarters later, it was apparent that Alabama was the class of the SEC and the nation after the 52-6 whipping of the Trojans.

Freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts’ entry into the game was the turning point for the Alabama offense, even though he lost a fumble on his first collegiate play. Hurts tossed two touchdowns and ran for two more as the Tide piled up over 400 yards of offense in the final three quarters.

On defense, after allowing a USC field goal on their first possession, the Tide completely shut down the USC offense. The Trojans seemingly Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Georgia Bulldogs

Alabama at Georgia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -2.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Georgia -2.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Over

Georgia's defense hasn't been tested at all this season with three games against the pedestrian offenses of UL-Monroe, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina. Keep in mind, the Bulldogs have replaced five of their front seven from a year ago. And last year's defense didn't exactly hold up well against the better offenses of the SEC. For starters, they didn't play Mississippi State and Alabama who ranked second and fourth respectively in SEC play in terms of total offense. The did shut down Auburn but the game was somewhat of an aberration as the Tigers coughed up the football three times. Against South Carolina, who ranked third, Georgia allowed 6.21 yards per play and 38 points. Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky all topped 30+ points as well.

Dating back to last season, we've seen Alabama's defense struggle against dynamic offenses. Auburn hung 44 points and 630 yards and Ohio State moved the ball practically at will en route to a 42-35 bowl win. And two Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Power Ratings 1-32

09.07.2015     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL regular season starts on Thursday.  Here’s how I have the 32 teams ranked heading into the campaign, with a quick blurb each squad.

1. New England Patriots - With Tom Brady set to open the season as the starting quarterback, the defending champs are the team to beat, worthy of my #1 ranking heading into the regular season.

2. Seattle Seahawks - Seattle enjoyed the best yards-per-rush differential between offense and defense last year, but they’ve got significant offensive line question marks as they head to St Louis for Week 1.

3. Green Bay Packers - The Packers passing game was second to none in the NFL last year, but the loss of Jordy Nelson leaves Aaron Rodgers without his top target for the entire season.

4. Indianapolis Colts - Most elite contenders face a tougher than average schedule because they’ve got to face other contending teams.  Indy, however, plays only four games against playoff teams from last year.

5. Denver Broncos - Peyton Manning is the oldest starting quarterback in the NFL by a wide margin, and he’s coming off a season where his arm strength noticeably declined down the Read more

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

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.

Brian Kelly’s team had Read more

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

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
