Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: An early look at the NFC South

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Continuing my summertime tour through the eight NFL divisions, this week, I’ll be taking an in-depth look at the four NFC South teams.  As always, teams are listed in alphabetical order within the division.

The Atlanta Falcons (lined at 7 or 7.5 wins for 2016, depending on the book) went 6-1 SU to open the season last year, but stumbled down the stretch with a 2-7 finish, finishing the season with an improved, yet still disappointing 8-8 SU record.  They were money losers (6-10 ATS, including a 2-10 slide to close out the campaign) despite their two win improvement from 2014 to 2015.  That came on the heels of a two win improvement (from four to six victories) from 2013 to 2014. 

The Falcons mainstream stats show one clear weakness from 2015, despite facing one of the easier scheduled in the NFL last year.  Their 30 giveaways ranked among the bottom five teams in the NFL at avoiding turnovers.  They finished +0.0 yards per play, (obviously) right at the league average with the #7 ranked offense and the #16 ranked defense based on yardage numbers.   Both coordinators return from last year’s Read more

College Football Handicapping: Penn State says offense will be much improved

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Penn State head coach James Franklin believes his offense is poised to make big strides in 2016. It wasn't massive, but in Franklin's second season, the Nittany Lions' offense did improve. In 2014, PSU finished dead last in Big Ten play at 267.5 ypg and allowed a whopping 44 sacks. Last year, the offense jumped to seventh (369.5 ypg) though still struggled at protecting the quarterback with 39 sacks allowed. PSU's first four opponents Kent State, Pitt, Temple, and Michigan all ranked 37th or better nationally in total defense in 2015.


"All the things are in place for us to make a significant jump offensively," Franklin said. "And we knew that."

"There are so many aspects now that are falling into place that you're going to have to deal with defensively," Franklin said. "As we all know, you can be very, very

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: San Diego Padres at Cincinnati Reds

San Diego (Rea) at Cincinnati (Reed)
Recommendation: 1st 5 inning Under 5


The Cincinnati Reds host the San Diego Padres for the second game of a four-game series. The Padres took the first game last night 7-4. Both teams are dealing with key injuries to the lineup and both are throwing young promising starting pitchers tonight. The Reds send Cody Reed the hill for his second MLB start. Reed allowed four earned runs in seven innings in his first outing. The 23-year-old from Horn Lake, Miss., was a second-round pick in 2013 out of Northwest Mississippi Community College. “He’s a lefty with real good stuff,” Price said. “Very athletic. Fastball, slider, changeup. Extremely competitive. He just seems to me to be a guy who’s really comfortable in competition and doesn’t see an environment as being imposing as others would.” The 6-5 225-pound southpaw will be facing a San Diego lineup that may be shorthanded without Jon Jay, who hasn't played since being hit by a pitch on Sunday. Jay is still experiencing some soreness.On the other side, the Reds lineup might be without their best player, Joey Votto who was not in Read more

Canadian Football League Betting Preview: Edmonton Eskimos

Edmonton Eskimos (2015: 14-4 SU, 11-7 ATS, 9-9 O/U)

The Edmonton Eskimos will have a target on their back as they look to repeat as Grey Cup champions following a tremendous 2015 season. It will however be a challenge because the offseason was not particularly kind to the Eskimos. Edmonton saw their very smart and winning head coach Chris Jones depart after he completely turned around this franchise in two seasons. He took the head coach and GM job in Saskatchewan but the Eskimos moved quickly and hired a quality replacement in Jason Maas. Maas, a former CFL quarterback, was the architect of a very prolific Ottawa Redblacks offense as their OC last season. He’ll be installing his familiar up-tempo, no huddle offense which the Eskimos embraced during the preseason. The offense was hard to stop late last season as quarterback Mike Reilly developed into an elite-level player. Edmonton does have some personnel issues to deal with though as Jones managed to woo several of his starters to Saskatchewan including WR Kendial Lawrence, WR Shamawd Chambers, OL Andrew Jones and DB Otha Foster. Meanwhile, two key members of last year’s solid secondary left Read more

Canadian Football League Betting Preview: Calgary Stampeders

Calgary Stampeders (2015: 14-4 SU, 8-10 ATS, 5-13 O/U)

After winning the 2014 Grey Cup, the Calgary Stampeders were upended by the Edmonton Eskimos in last year’s West Finals. This organization remains on good footing and I expect them to be in the title hunt once again this season. They should enjoy an absolutely seamless transition with long time head coach John Hufnagel retiring (now GM) and handing over the reigns to offensive coordinator Dave Dickenson who has been with the Stampeders since 2009. Calgary will have a new face at running back after veteran Jon Cornish retired. Jerome Messam was brought in late last season and figures to be the starter. The offense, led by quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell who is clearly one of the best in the CFL, will be potent. Though they did lose a pair of dynamic receivers with Eric Rogers and Jeff Fuller departing for the NFL. The team brought in veteran Bakari Grant who joins the likes of Anthony Parker, Joe West and Marquay McDaniel. Rogers led the CFL in touchdowns and receiving yards but the Stamps did a solid job addressing that void. The defense should be extremely good as they have added Hamilton Read more

Canadian Football League Betting Preview: Saskatchewan Roughriders

Saskatchewan Roughriders (2015: 3-15 SU, 5-12-1 ATS, 12-6 O/U)

Everything that could go wrong did go wrong for the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2015. They finished a dismal 3-15 which included a season-ending injury to top quarterback Darian Durant and the midseason dismissal of head coach Corey Chamblin who was two years removed from a Grey Cup title. In comes another former Grey Cup champion (2015), head coach Chris Jones. The hiring was one of the league’s most significant offseason moves as Jones will not only serve as head coach but also defensive coordinator, General Manager, and VP of Football Operations. Jones, a slick talking southerner from Tennessee, has been the architect of numerous top defensive teams in the CFL. In his first stint as head coach in Edmonton, he took a bad Eskimos team and in two shorts seasons won the Grey Cup. Montreal won the Grey Cup in 2002 when he was their defensive line coach. Calgary won the Grey Cup in 2008 with Jones as DC. And Toronto did the same in 2012. I’m almost willing to blindly accept that Jones in time will make this a better football team. The question is how quickly does Saskatchewan improve? Read more

Canadian Football League Betting Preview: Hamilton Tiger-Cats

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2015: 10-8 SU, 11-7 ATS, 6-12 O/U)

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have been a strong fundamentally sound team and organization since day one of the Kent Austin era but that consistency will be tested in 2016. Hamilton will begin the season without their top quarterback, Zach Collaros, who was on his way to an MOP season before a torn ACL in September ended his year. Backup Jeremiah Masoli did a nice job stepping in late last season and had a very productive training camp. The receiving corps projects to be above average with Andy Fantuz, Chad Owens, Luke Tasker and promising talents Tiquan Underwood and Terrence Toliver. The offensive line should be very good once again and this team has arguably the best special teams unit in the CFL. The Ticats did lose their offensive coordinator but hired a quality replacement in Stefan Ptaszek. Ptaszek was a winner as a player and completely turned around the McMaster University football program. By all accounts, he has a brilliant mind for designing and implementing offenses and should emerge as one of the league’s top coordinators.

Hamilton’s did lose top flight kicker Justin Read more

Toronto Argonauts (2015: 10-8 SU, 9-9 ATS, 8-10 O/U)

It is a very momentous season for the Toronto Argos who finally have a home stadium to call their own as they play their first season at BMO Field; site of the 2016 Grey Cup. Toronto was very active in free agency during the offseason by bringing in the likes of offensive lineman Josh Bourke to bolster a suspect front five. The suspect o-line has played a big part in veteran quarterback Ricky Ray’s inability to stay on the field. Brian Bulcke has a chance to be a solid addition on the defensive line but health is an issue for him. They also added Bryan Hall and Justin Hickman to the defensive front and Keon Raymond in the secondary. The Argos did a solid job filling a lot of their holes but the key for this teams remains Ray’s health. Behind him this season, there is no more insurance policy after Trevor Harris signed with Ottawa. Logan Kilgore will be the team’s backup and he doesn’t have a ton of CFL experience. It is vital for Ray to stay on the field if the Argos are going to make a run at the Grey Cup on their home soil. Veteran CFL defensive coordinator Rich Stubler takes Read more
