College Football Handicapping: LSU wants to utilize up-tempo attack

08.22.2017     08:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Initial reports indicate that LSU will play at a much faster pace under new offensive coordinator Matt Canada. Canada was last seen guiding Pitt's offense to over 40 ppg. Interestingly enough, both Pitt and LSU averaged exactly 6.71 yards per play last season which ranked 13th nationally. The Tigers play host to BYU in Week 1. The total was played up from a Les Miles-esque 44.5 to 47.5.


“If you always go fast, they get used to that,” Canada said at a coaches clinic in the spring. “If you always go slow, they get used to that. So we change the tempo.”

“We’re just getting the ball off faster now,” Malone said. “Hopefully putting a lot more points up and getting the defense back on their heels. We’ve been doing it during scrimmages, and it’s been helping. Hopefully we can transition to a game.” [:END-QUOTE:

College Football Betting News: Utah State will employ faster tempo

08.18.2017     07:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Changes coming at Utah State with David Yost taking over as offensive coordinator. Yost has ties to Oregon as well as Mike Leach so it's logical to assume there will be an uptick in pace. The Aggies ran only 66 plays per game last season and ranked near the bottom in virtually every offensive category within the Mountain West.


“There are times (with up-tempo offenses) when it’s nine seconds later and your defense is back on the field,” he said. “That is not what we want to do. That is not our goal as the offense.”

"In the past we've done a lot of sideways passing and not getting up the field as much as we want,” Myers said. “We're going to spread the offense and go vertical a lot.”

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore +2.5 at Miami O/U 37.5
Recommendation: Baltimore

The Miami Dolphins have no business as favorites in this ballgame. One of the biggest ‘red flags’ in preseason for any team – let alone a favorite – is when a coach starts whining about his injury situation. That’s exactly what Adam Gase has done this week. When a coach can’t handle any more injuries, the entire team seems to feel it, and you tend to see significantly less intensity for a meaningless August game. And Gase has been dealing with the cumulative effect of the injury bug all week, even cancelling practice on Tuesday to go through a ‘no pads’ walk through.

Gase has every reason to whine considering the state of his offensive line right now. Jay Cutler is supposed to get his first game action with Miami here, but how long he’ll be on the field is very much in question, especially given the state of the Dolphins offensive line right now. Center Mike Pouncey (hip) isn’t likely to play. Right tackle Ja’Wuan James (shoulder), has missed practices all week as has guard-center Kraig Urbik (back). Read more

College Football Handicapping: Cal defense should improve under Wilcox and DeRuyter

08.17.2017     10:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There's a massive cleanup needed in Berkeley after Cal cut ties with Sonny Dykes and brought in longtime and well respected defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. Wilcox's first job is to fix a defense that was one of the nation's worst units (42.6 ppg allowed last season). Under Dykes, opposing teams scored 40 or more 55 percent of the time. Wilcox hired former Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter to serve as defensive coordinator. In two seasons as DC at Texas A&M, the Aggies ranked inside the top 20 nationally in yards per play allowed. And during his first season as head coach at Fresno State, DeRuyter's stop unit ranked second in the Mountain West in yards per game (338.5) and play (4.73) allowed. If anything, it's clear that this year's squad will put a bit more stock into stopping the opposition.


 “We weren’t used to the head coach being in defensive meetings,” senior cornerback Darius Allensworth said. “Maybe a couple times, but Coach Wilcox pokes his head in the DBs room almost every

College Football Handicapping: UConn names JC transfer starting quarterback

08.14.2017     09:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UConn has never been a destination school for quarterbacks. Over the last seven seasons, only once did the Huskies rank inside the top 100 (2015, 88th) in terms of team passer rating. In his second term in Storrs, head coach Randy Edsall is attempting to change that pattern with JuCo transfer David Pindell. Pindell was recently named the team's starter. It's perhaps a good sign considering senior Bryant Shirreffs started the last two seasons. Edsall's teams however have never been prolific passing the football. During his five years at Maryland, the Terps' average team passer ranking was 92nd nationally.


"Just saw the way he's come in and handled the offense," Edsall said. "He's still got work to do, as they all do, but I think it was time. We sat down with the offensive staff and talked and evaluated all the things we had seen. We made the decision, and now we're going to move forward."

College Football Betting News: Florida suspends seven for season opener vs. Michigan

08.14.2017     07:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the disadvantages of playing an actual game in Week 1 and not some patsy from the Sun Belt is that there's always a chance for some good old fashion offseason suspensions. Florida announced that it will be without the services of seven players including the team's top offensive weapon, wide receiver, Antonio Callaway. Frustrating situation for summer bettors as there was a lot of pro-Gator money. Michigan opened -5 and was bet down to -2.5 before sportsbooks took the game off the board.


"We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing," head coach Jim McElwain said in a statement, though he did not elaborate on the reason for their suspension. "Action has been taken they have missed some practice and will miss the Michigan game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward."

NFL Preseason Gambling: Arizona Cardinals change play callers for second straight game

08.11.2017     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Arizona Cardinals will hand over play calling duties to quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich for Sunday's game vs. Oakland. In their 20-18 Hall of Fame game loss to the Cowboys, the Cardinals scored 15 points in the first quarter and finished with 327 total yards. Offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin called plays in that contest. Arizona has taken a slew of money this week; +1 to now -3 at both offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks.


“Byron doesn’t have a ton of, or much, history calling plays but just his knowledge of the offense, his knowledge of being the guy that is hearing it through his headset is going to serve him and give him some experience.”

NFL Preseason Betting: Pittsburgh goes with rookie QB Dobbs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With Ben Roethlisberger sitting and backup Landry Jones injured, the Pittsburgh Steelers will start fourth round draft pick Joshua Dobbs tonight against the New York Giants. At Tennessee, Dobbs posted the highest passer rating in the SEC and also rushed for over 800 yards. The Giants opened -2.5 home chalk but have since been bet up to -3.5/-4.

 

“I am just interested in his game-day demeanor, his ability to communicate through circumstances,” Tomlin said, “not only with his fellow players but also with coaches as well.”

NFL Preseason Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Orleans Saints at Cleveland Browns

New Orleans +3 at Cleveland O/U 38
Recommendation: New Orleans

Hue Jackson went 0-4 SU and ATS in his lone preseason as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders. Jackson followed that 0-fer up with an 0-4 SU and ATS mark in his first season with the Browns last year. Much of that was circumstantial – the Browns Week 1 roster last year had more rookies on it than any non-expansion team in NFL history.

But when we’re talking about a major steam line move – this game opened at pick em and is now painted Cleveland -3 with extra vig to support the favorite – that type of track record certainly doesn’t inspire confidence in this bettor! Whatever value their might have been with the Browns at pick em or -1 is long gone now.

Most pointspread decisions -- whether in the NFL Preseason or regular season or playoffs -- are decided after halftime. The mainstream media and the betting markets often play far too much attention to the ‘how much playing time are the starters going to get?’ announcements, as opposed to the ‘who is going to be on the field after halftime?’ Read more
