College Football Betting: Missouri's power rating continues to skyrocket

11.14.2017     12:06 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There hasn't been a bigger midseason turnaround in college football than the Missouri Tigers. After opening the season 1-5 SU and 0-4 ATS, Mizzou has ripped off four straight wins and six straight covers. Their early season struggles were simple: the offense couldn't score and the defense was atrocious. But of late, it's been the complete opposite. Missouri has won its last four games by an average margin of 53.8-16.5. The most surprising improvement has been defensively. Yes, the competition wasn't exactly potent (Idaho, UConn, Florida, and Tennessee) but this is a unit that opened the year coughing up 43 to Missouri State. But the real story here is how much oddsmakers have been forced to adjust Missouri's power rating after beating the spread by 21, 27.5, 26.5, and 32.5 the last four weeks. Consider some of Missouri's previous pointspreads and compare them to the -8.5 it is laying on Saturday at Vanderbilt: -1.5 at home vs. Florida, -13.5 at UConn, and +8.5 at Kentucky. Nuts, Read more

College Football Handicapping: SEC has fared well ATS in late season non-conference games

11.14.2017     11:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The SEC is unique in that you see a lot of late season non-conference matchups. They mostly involve an SEC team playing host and laying big points to non-power five teams. Below are the results, which this season have been very positive for the SEC: 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS. Note that there are four such matchups this weekend.

Missouri: The Tigers faced Idaho and UConn back-to-back weeks and easily won and covered both games.

Vanderbilt: Won and covered two weeks ago vs. Western Kentucky.

Ole Miss: Won and covered as -23 home favorites vs. UL-Lafayette last week.

Arkansas: Needed a miracle to slip past Coastal Carolina as -24.5 home favorites two weeks ago.

Mississippi State - Won but failed to cover vs. UMass two weeks ago.

Texas A&M: Won and covered vs. New Mexico last week.

Tennessee: Won and covered vs. Southern Miss two weeks ago.

Auburn: -36 vs. UL-Monroe on Saturday

Florida: -10 vs. UAB on Saturday

South Carolina: N/L vs. Wofford on Saturday

Alabama: N/L vs. Mercer on Saturday

College Football Betting Update: Florida goes with Zaire vs. Missouri

11.03.2017     08:52 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

We can't help but feel that Florida is either going to play its best game of the year and beat Missouri by 30 or trail 21-0 before the end of the first quarter. Either way, they'll do so with former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire, who for whatever reason has been buried on the depth chart behind two guys who can barely complete a forward pass.


“Malik is the starting quarterback for this upcoming game at Missouri,” said Shannon in a statement. “This is his opportunity to get this team where it needs to be and not to be satisfied just because he’s the starter.

“Today is an opportunity for him to run the offense and understand the expectations that we have for him. This is not a time for him to feel comfortable and feel like he’s made it. We want him to keep grinding and understand that competition is very

College Football Betting: SEC has been less than impressive thus far

09.18.2017     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things haven't been pretty in the SEC thus far save for a handful of teams. In non-conference play, SEC teams are currently 11-18-1 against the spread. Below is a quick, and yes cliche, look at the “good”, the “bad”, and the “ugly."

The good...

Vanderbilt - Big win over Kansas State ups the Commodores to 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS. SEC plays gets underway this weekend with Alabama headed to Nashville.

Georgia - Bulldogs look to be the favorite in the East after dominating Appalachian State and winning outright in South Bend. Currently a -6 home favorite over fellow "good" squad Mississippi State.

Mississippi State - Bulldogs have looked dominant on both sides of the football en route to a 3-0 SU/ATS start. At Georgia and at Auburn the next two weeks.

Alabama - Workmanlike effort through three weeks though failed to cover against Fresno State and Colorado State.

The bad...

Kentucky - Yes, the Cats are 3-0 SU but only 1-2 ATS and dead even from a total yardage perspective despite Read more

College Football Gambling: Missouri fires defensive coordinator

09.12.2017     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Another situation where when things go south, shore it up by canning a coordinator. After last week's 31-13 home loss to South Carolina, Missouri parted ways with defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross. Ironically, it was one of the Tigers' betting showings defensively as it held the Gamecocks to a respectable 359 total yards (5.28 ypp). Head coach Dave Odom claimed the decision to fire Cross was based solely on "philosophical differences." We'll take a guess at what those difference were: Cross pleads with OC to slow down the pace and give his defense a fighting chance. Odom says, quit bitching and deal with it. Saturday's total vs. Purdue was peppered up from 71 to 78.5. Mizzou is currently -7.5 home chalk.


“I don’t know if you ever can say it’s the right time or the wrong time,” Odom said. “I know that the staff we have in place, I’m confident that we can go do what we need to do in order to give ourselves the chance to be successful.”

College Basketball Gambling: Missouri and LSU play SEC Tournament with lame duck coaches

03.08.2017     08:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Win one for the Gipper or let's get this over with ASAP is the question most bettors have when handicapping teams with lame duck head coaches during the postseason. Yesterday, NC State and Mark Gottfried made it clear the offseason was the preferred route as the Wolfpack fell to mediocre Clemson, 75-61. Tonight, Missouri and LSU take the floor for the SEC Tournament. Kim Anderson was asked to step down after the season concludes and multiple reports indicate Johnny Jones will suffer the same fate. Mizzou has actually covered six of their last nine games and in theory don't need its A-game to compete with first round opponent Auburn. The same can be said about LSU who faces a sub-par -- even by SEC standards -- Mississippi State squad. All that being said, there isn't much to indicate either squad is primed to play their best basketball of the season. And while that level of effort isn't mandatory to cover the pointspread, it wouldn't shock us to see both squads pack it in in an attempt to move on from their respective disastrous campaigns.

College Football Betting Preview: Vanderbilt Commodores at Missouri Tigers

Vanderbilt at Missouri
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -1 O/U 50
CRIS Current: Missouri -4 O/U 52.5
Recommendation: Over

Prior to last week, South Carolina had yet to post 400+ yards of total offense in a game. They racked up 428 yards and 31 points against Missouri which marked yet another team that had little difficulty moving the football against the Tigers' stop unit. Over its last five games, Mizzou has allowed 42, 40, 51, 35, and 31 points. Four of those opponents were from the SEC (LSU, Florida, Kentucky, and South Carolina) and all of them rank in the bottom half the league in total offense. All of the top offenses in the SEC reside in the West Division and Missouri has played only LSU, arguably the weakest of the bunch. The Bayou Bengals rolled up 634 yards en route to a 42-7 win.

Vanderbilt, however, ranks dead last in the SEC at 311.9 ypg. In six games against power conference teams, the Commodores have yet to top 17 points. Even against the likes of MTSU and Western Kentucky, Vandy failed to top 400 yards though was handed a number of short fields thanks to five Read more

College Football Gambling: LSU taking different offensive approach vs. Alabama

11.01.2016     09:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
LSU's offense has looked impressive following the departure of Les Miles and a more "open" attack under interim head coach Ed Orgeron. Over their last three games, the Tigers are averaging 41.6 ppg and a whooping 8.5 yards per play. But that was against Missouri, Southern Miss, and Ole Miss. Saturday will be the true test as Alabama obviously grades out as one of the best defensive units in college football. To say the Crimson Tide have the Tigers' offense figured out would be an understatement (see below year-by-year production). LSU is hinting that it will need to stretch the field in order to "loosen up" the Bama defense. Alabama has allowed 28 passes of 20+ yards this season which ranks 12th in the SEC.

LSU's offense vs. Alabama
2015: 16 points, 182 total yards
2014: 13 points, 259 total yards
2013: 17 points, 284 total yards
2012: 17 points, 435 total yards

College Football Betting Preview: Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at Missouri Tigers

Middle Tennessee State at Missouri
Saturday, 1 pm PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -6.5 O/U 69.5
CRIS Current: Missouri -7.5 O/U 75
Recommendation: Missouri

Missouri enters this matchup with a 2-4 record under new head coach Barry Odom including back-to-back blowout losses at LSU and Florida. In their six games, the Tigers have faced three elite defenses in West Virginia, LSU and Florida and their offense has struggled in those three losses. However, against average or worse defenses, the Tigers’ new passing offense has been good and they will face an opposing defense that they should be able to take advantage of this week in Middle Tennessee State.

MTSU allowed perhaps the worst SEC offense, Vanderbilt, to pile up 47 points with 344 total yards and 5.1 yards per rush.  MTSU also allowed 34 points to La Tech and 44 last week to Western Kentucky. This defense will struggle again against SEC athletes, and I expect Missouri to get back on track against the Blue Raiders.

Missouri should also pose some problems on defense for the MTSU offense. Despite the lopsided score last week Read more

College Football Handicapping: Missouri players meet with defensive coordinator

10.11.2016     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A year removed from allowing only 302 ypg (2nd SEC), Missouri's defense has taken a significant step back. Two weeks ago, LSU rolled up 634 yards (7.7 ypp) in a 42-7 win Baton Rouge. During the bye week, the players met with defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross to voice their concerns about Cross's complex system. The Tigers travel to Gainesville this Saturday to face Florida. The Gators are currently -13.5/-14 favorites while the total was hammered up to 50.5.


“Sometimes everyone’s just frustrated but nobody’s talking about how to make it better,” MU middle linebacker Michael Scherer said. “And nothing ever gets better.”

“He wanted to know how we felt,” Scherer said. “He wanted to know how he could contribute to help us play better. He’s not (saying), ‘My way or the highway.’ He’s listening to us. He’s taking opinions from us.”

Safety Thomas Wilson added: “He just
