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

College Football Betting: LSU seeks more offense following coaching change

09.27.2016     08:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stop us if you've heard this before: Struggling team fires coach, vows to "open up" offense moving forward. That is what LSU is proclaiming in the wake of Les Miles' departure. College football's most popular interim head coach Ed Orgeron takes over heading into this weekend's matchup against Missouri. The "new" offense coupled with Missouri's up-tempo attack prompted a bevy of over money as the total skyrocketed from 45 to 51.


“You can expect … a new style of play on offense, and obviously we don't have a lot of time to change things, but we are going to tweak things around,” Orgeron said in his introductory news conference.

“We're going to spread the ball out a little bit, do some different things, change the style of play,” he said later Monday.

College Football Handicapping: Missouri starts from scratch with new OC

08.23.2016     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting take on Missouri first-year offensive coordinator Josh Heupel who served at the same position at Oklahoma and Utah State. Note that Heupel was fired from OU after the 2014 season and the following year, the Sooners boasted one of the best offenses in the country though the upgrade from quarterback Travis Knight to Baker Mayfield was a big factor. Last season under Heupel, Utah State ranked 93rd nationally in total offense. He gets a fresh start in Columbia and has a lot of work to do after the Tigers ranked dead last in the SEC at 280.9 ypg of total offense.


“I knew Josh (Heupel) pretty well when I covered Oklahoma,” Haney said. “It just hadn’t gone well for him, whether it was at OU or the injury issues at Utah State. I just don’t know if he’s the guy you want trying to re-imagine that offense. If it does work out, it’s going to take quite a bit of time.”

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Texas A&M Aggies at Missouri Tigers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas A&M -9.5 at Missouri O/U 140.5
Recommendation: Over


I see no quit in the Missouri Tigers despite another season of issues. They sit 10-18 overall and 3-12 in SEC play but have quietly covered six straight games thanks to an uptick in offensive output. The first half of the SEC schedule, Mizzou barely averaged over 60 ppg, including a 53-point output against tonight's opponent Texas A&M. But since then, they've hung 70+ in seven consecutive contests which has in turn resulted in cashed tickets as an underdog and on the over. Efficiency wise, the Tigers are only slightly better than they were two months ago. The increase is scoring actually has more to do with pace as their games have averaged over 70 possessions over their last six games. It's pretty apparent that Kim Anderson is telling his kids to go have fun and play hard. And as silly as it sounds, losing a game 80-70 is probably a lot easier pill to swallow than some of the low scoring, bloodbaths of last season. Scoring and pace however won't be automatics tonight as A&M tends to play slow while also defending at above average level. They have however been willing to play an Read more
