College Football Handicapping: LSU Tigers draws tough conference slate

06.20.2018     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In doing some of our preseason college football schedule analysis we stumbled upon something in the SEC worth noting. Whoever made LSU's conference schedule must have it out for the Tigers. For starters, LSU draws Georgia and Florida from the East Division. Based on regular season over/under wins, those are the top two teams in the East with the Bulldogs lined at 10.5 wins and the Gators 8. Next, and most important, is how many SEC teams play LSU off of bye week. In Week 8, LSU will be playing its fourth straight SEC game while Mississippi State enters off of a bye. In Week 11, after playing rival Alabama, the Tigers travel to Arkansas who comes in off of a bye week. Only twice does LSU play a conference foe that played a league game the week prior: Florida at Mississippi State and then vs. LSU; Georgia vs. Vanderbilt and then at LSU. Overall, there are three teams (Alabama, Arkansas, and Mississippi State) that face LSU rested and Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri Tigers at South Carolina Gamecocks

Missouri at South Carolina -2 O/U 140
Recommendation: Under

Missouri's Cuonzo Martin and South Carolina's Frank Martin have long been coaches you can play under the total given the right circumstances. I see tonight as an opportunity with the Tigers opening SEC play and the Gamecocks off a 74-69 road loss to Ole Miss. During non-conference play, Mizzou at times showed capable on the offensive end while also willing to get up and down the floor. But against comparable competition, their scores and pace were far more moderate. Games against Iowa State, Utah, UCF, and Illinois yielded 133, 136, 121, and 134 points. They did however get caught up in a few high scoring affairs against St. John's (90-82) and West Virginia (83-79) as well as recent home contests vs. a few up-tempo mid-major squads. Interestingly, Martin's Cal team from a year ago played in only four PAC-12 games that closed higher than 140 and those were against Arizona State, UCLA, and Washington; three teams that played with tremendous pace and didn’t defend. It's pointless to use South Carolina's results from a season ago considering all of the experience and Read more

College Football Gambling: Bettors should be aware of coaching changes for bowl teams

12.07.2017     11:54 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There's obviously been a lot of coaching movement since the end of the regular season. Below we've got the details on who is expected to coach those teams playing in the postseason.

UCF - Scott Frost is headed to Nebraska but reports say he and his staff will stick around for the Peach Bowl (Jan. 1).

Missouri - Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel was hired to replace Frost. He won't have anything to do with UCF's bowl preparation and there is still no word on whether or not he'll call plays for Missouri's Texas Bowl (Dec. 27) matchup vs. Texas.

Oregon - Offensive coordinator Mario Cristobal will serve as interim head coach following the departure of Willie Taggart. The Ducks play Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl (Dec. 16).

UCLA - With Jim Mora Read more

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
