Ohio State vs. North Carolina (Chicago)
Tar Heels have plenty of issues but the huge advantage in this one is that they've played five quality top 25 caliber teams. Ohio State meanwhile caught Marquette early and battled back but was for the most part manhandled by Louisville. They've been stationed in Columbus playing nothing but glorified practices. Good for confidence, bad for asking them to flip the switch away from home against comparable competition.

Northern Iowa vs. Iowa (Des Moines)
Prior to allowing 90 to rival Iowa State, I've been impressed with Iowa's defense. The offense though has struggled vs. quality foes and Northern Iowa guards about as good as anyone in the country outside of top-tier bullies like Kentucky and Louisville. Would expect Iowa's best effort with over a week to prep after aforementioned blowout loss to Cyclones. Expect to see Hawkeyes in the -2/-2.5 range.

Oklahoma vs. Washington (Las Vegas)
Huskies are undefeated and while the schedule comes up light, this looks to be one of Romar's most complete teams. He's had more talent but they've bought in to guarding which Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: New Orleans Pelicans at Houston Rockets

New Orleans +4.5 at Houston O/U 201
Recommendation: New Orleans


The Rockets failed to cover the spread in all four meetings against the Pelicans last year.  I’m not expecting Houston to match up any better against New Orleans in their first meeting of the 2014-15 campaign.
 
Houston is coming off a hard fought OT win in the Mile High altitude of Denver last night.  Every starter played at least 42 minutes; while only two reserves got more than seven minutes of floor time.  Expect a relatively sluggish showing here.  The Rockets haven’t been able to by margin in any recent back-2-back situation, even when they were fresher than they are tonight.  The Kings took them to overtime in their last back-2-back set.  They beat slumping Phoenix by only five in their try before that.  And we saw the Rockets worst loss of the year – by 26 at Memphis – on the second night of back-2-backs last month.
 
This is a very easy trip for New Orleans, just a single road game with short travel to Houston.  And New Orleans has really found some excellent offensive rhythm over the Read more

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Betting Preview: Western Michigan Broncos vs. Air Force Falcons

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl - Boise, Idaho
Western Michigan vs. Air Force
Saturday, 2:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Western Michigan -2 O.U 56.5
CRIS Current: Air Force -1 O/U 58
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Air Force -0.5

Quite a turnaround for Western Michigan who in PJ Fleck's second season improved to 8-4 after only one victory in 2013. They were the most complete team in the MAC ranking third in both total offense (443 ypg) and total defense (355 ypg) in conference play. Air Force wasn't nearly as impressive ranking 6th and 7th respectively in the Mountain West. The Falcons though played in the tougher conference and Mountain Division which has a chance (if Air Force and Utah State wins) to produce four 10-win or better squads.

One of the concerns with Western Michigan is not only the lack of competition but their performance against comparable and/or better competition. They routinely fell short Read more

College Football Gambling: Florida State doesn't know why its an underdog vs. Oregon

12.17.2014     07:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Florida State Seminoles are double-dipping on the underdog angle vs. Oregon. The players are apparently miffed that despite 29 consecutive wins they are catching points. The coaching staff meanwhile doesn't pay to that sort of stuff. What we do know is everyone is "aware." It's the first time FSU has been priced as a dog since early 2011.


"To be honest, I don't feel like the underdog. I don't think this team feels like the underdog," Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey said. "We shouldn't feel like the underdog. We're the ones who won 29 in a row. What are we scared of? Why are we the underdog? I don't really understand that."

"I never know if we were a nine-point favorite or a nine-point underdog," said Fisher during a news conference featuring all four of the CFP semifinal head coaches, "I never pay any attention to that."

College Football Handicapping: Liberty Bowl expects to be up-tempo

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not a surprise but Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is expecting their Liberty Bowl matchup vs. West Virginia to feature "lots of plays." The total opened 64 and has since been bet up to 67.


“Both teams need to get to bed early because there’s going to be a lot of plays in this game,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said, noting their no-huddle, up-tempo styles.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFC Playoff Contenders

12.15.2014     08:12 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Week 15 of the NFL season is in the books and four teams have emerged as clear co-favorites to win the Super Bowl.  Green Bay and Seattle are at the top of the power ratings spectrum in the NFC while Denver and New England look poised for a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship Game.

In my Wiseguy Report over the next two weeks, I’m going to poke holes in every other team that is still alive in the playoff chase.  Can any of the fringe contenders knock off the favorites when January rolls around?  Read on to find out.  This week I’ll focus on the second tier contenders in the NFC, and next week, I’ll shift my focus to the AFC.

The Dallas Cowboys have looked good on national TV repeatedly this year.  They are a perfect 7-0 SU on the road, including impressive wins at Seattle and Philly.  But the Cowboys have at least one fundamental flaw – their defense isn’t much better than it was last year when the Cowboys ranked at or near the bottom of nearly every statistical category. 

In 2013, the Cowboys stop unit was ridiculed nationally, allowing 6.1 yards per play (ranked #30 out of 32 Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets

San Antonio -5 at Denver O/U 205
Recommendation: San Antonio


On Friday’s Sportsmemo podcast, I warned listeners that the Spurs were a tad bit ‘fat and happy’ heading into their matchup with the Lakers, based on their performance without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard two nights earlier when they blew out the Knicks.  And the Spurs came out as flat as a pancake against the Lakers, a performance that head coach Greg Popovich called ‘pitiful’ following the game.  "They had an edge, they were aggressive on both ends of the floor, they executed well and they definitely wanted the game more than we did. It seemed more important to them than to us. I thought our performance was pitiful."

Tim Duncan wasn’t very pleased either after losing the OT decision in SU fashion as 12.5 point favorites: “If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves.”  Manu Ginobili had similar sentiments: “It is frustrating. It's disappointing. Looks like we need to be challenged badly to get the best out of our Read more

College Football Betting Alert: Markets fade Spurrier, Gamecocks

12.11.2014     08:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's not too often you see anti-SEC money during the bowl season. Maybe and half point here or there if bettors sense conference affiliation inflation but for the most part the SEC is regarded as "bet on" in December and January. That however hasn't been the case for the Independence Bowl with Miami taking all of the early money for its matchup vs. South Carolina. The game opened pick 'em with the Hurricanes now -3 at most offshore sportsbooks (-3.5ev at CRIS). After losing three straight bowl games from 2008-10, the Gamecocks have won three straight. Likely some concerns though as to how much prep and effort will come from the SC side after very high preseason expectations and a dismal 6-6 (3-5 SEC) showing. That at Spurrier playing 36 holes a day.

College Football Handicapping: Arkansas seeks better run game vs. Texas

12.11.2014     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arkansas is hoping the time off leading up to its Texas Bowl matchup vs. Texas will result in more success running the football. After racking up over 700 yards against Texas Tech and Texas A&M, the Razorbacks averaged only 131 ypg (3.12 ypc) their last six SEC contests. Texas' rushing defense allowed 3.9 ypc on the season.


"We need to get back to the basics of what we do," Cook said. "That's being physical, pounding the rock. That's soothing we can do and something we like to do and something we will focus on and get after it."

NFL Betting News: Johnny Football gets the call vs. Cincinnati

12.09.2014     01:57 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the midst of trying to secure their first playoff berth since 2002, the Cleveland Browns have decided to play a little quarterback music chairs. A few weeks back, off of a loss, they considered a move to Johnny Manziel but decided against it. Following last week's loss to Indianapolis -- a game in which Brian Hoyer failed to hit 50% of his pass and threw two picks -- the team will now give Manziel a shot. He'll get the starting nod in Sunday's must-win vs. Cincinnati. The betting market's reaction? Crickets. Little to no movement following the accouncement.


"This decision is really not about Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel, it is about the Cleveland Browns. We are always going to make decisions that we feel are in the best interest of the team," Pettine said in a statement. "Brian has done everything that has been asked of him and he has done so as a true professional. ... We are trying to get the offense to perform at a higher level. Johnny has worked very hard to earn this opportunity and it will be very Read more
