College Football Handicapping: Week 7 Injury Report

10.10.2013     08:06 AM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Louisville WR DaVante Parker is ‘questionable’ tonight vs. Rutgers with a shoulder injury. Parker has 21 receptions for 375 yards and six TDs.

Rutgers LB Jamal Merrell will be back tonight after missing three games with a kidney ailment. Merrell was the Scarlet Knights’ leading returning tackler who had 7.5 stops for losses last year. RU running back Paul James will miss his second straight game at Louisville. James has run for 573 yards and six TDs this year.

South Carolina All-American DE and future first-round pick Jadeveon Clowney didn’t go in last week’s 35-28 win over Kentucky. For the third straight game, the Gamecocks burned their backers by giving up another backdoor cover. Clowney (bruised ribs) remains ‘questionable’ for Saturday’s game at Arkansas. The air seems to have been cleared with Steve Spurrier and Clowney making comments this week about his commitment to the team that came in question when he told his coaches he couldn’t play against UK. On the complete flip side, Connor Shaw did play against the ‘Cats after hurting his shoulder the week before. Shaw showed no signs of pain in Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Using coach-speak in your handicap

09.02.2013     07:43 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Part of the standard handicapping mantra includes ‘checking the local papers’ and ‘watching the coach’s press conference’ in an effort to get quality information that the betting markets aren’t paying attention too.  Computer algorithms designed to beat pointspreads can’t and don’t handicap coach-speak.  Few bettors actually take the time to do their homework.  So ‘cappers who make and take the time to check local sources and press conferences can find legitimate edges that are overlooked by most others – good information.

There’s no dictionary to help you translate coach-speak into betting decisions.  And in all the years I’ve been writing about sports betting, I’ve never once written a how-to article on how to approach coaches quotes.  It’s time.

This past week, while doing my research for the upcoming college football games, I ran into a press conference from Skip Holtz.  Skip was a very successful coach at East Carolina and UConn, then a very unsuccessful coach at South Florida.  In 2013, Holtz is taking over at Louisiana Tech, now that Sonny Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Northwestern Wildcats at California Golden Bears

Northwestern at California
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Northwestern -3 O/U 58.5
CRIS Current: Northwestern -5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Northwestern -5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Northwestern

When Washington State went from good to mediocre to awful in the PAC-12, it happened rather predictably.  Mike Price had success in Pullman, albeit not every year, and he left the cupboard full for his successor, Bill Doba, when Price took the Alabama job.  Doba won ten games in his first year, and the Cougars enjoyed their third consecutive top 10 ranking at the close of the season following an upset win over Texas in the Holiday Bowl.

But Doba was not the right hire; unable to recruit (or coach) the way Price did.  Washington State quickly went from a top 10 program three years running to a squad that was struggling to reach .500 every year: 5-6, 4-7, Read more

NCAA Football Handicapping: Cal's Dykes goes with true frosh quarterback

08.22.2013     01:49 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Considering the schedule (daunting) and the state of the program (not good), it shouldn't come as a shock to see Cal first-year head coach Sonny Dykes with an eye on the future and tab true freshman Jared Goff as the team’s Week 1 starter against Northwestern. While at Louisiana Tech, Dykes turned Colby Cameron into a great quarterback – though it didn't happen overnight. Cameron struggled as sophomore, took over as starter midway through his junior season, and of course set the world on fire with 4,100 yards and a 31-5 TD/INT ratio last year.


"We have had a fiercely-contested competition for our starting quarterback position," Dykes said in a statement. "It's important to name a starter and give them the reps they need to be prepared to play. We feel that right now Jared Goff gives us the best chance to be successful as a team, but we are very fortunate to have three outstanding quarterbacks we feel we can be successful with."

College Football Betting: Cal's Dykes walking into a tough situation

08.02.2013     07:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on Cal first-year head coach Sonny Dykes and the current state of the program. He's got some work to do with only 11 returning starters, no experience at the quarterback position, and a brutal schedule. According to 5Dimes, Cal is lined at 4un-145 regular season wins. The Golden Bears are also an 8.5-point home favorite to Northwestern for Week 1.


“Our whole emphasis is always on speed. We want to do everything fast. We want our players to think fast, react fast and play fast. We want to recruit fast kids. We want to transition fast. When guys are thinking and unsure, that results in them being a step slow. By design everything's pretty simple.”

On offensive coordinator Tony Franklin: “He'll call the plays. I'll do a lot of the situational stuff — 'We've got the ball at midfield. It's third and 7.' I'm going to tell him, 'Hey you've got two downs,' that type of stuff. There are times I'll say, 'Let's run the ball here. Take a shot here.' It's more game management than specific plays. We've been around each other 16 Read more

College Football Betting: Oddsmakers price Cal Golden Bears as PAC-12 bottom feeder

06.27.2013     08:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Remember when oddsmakers couldn't make Washington State's lines high enough during the Paul Wulff era? Well according to the early betting markets, the Cal Golden Bears are projected to be just as bad as some of those absolutely awful Wazzu teams. You know things are dismal when you're a Week 1 10.5-point home underdog to Northwestern (last time we checked, Cal did take some money in that contest). Making matters worse for first-year head coach Sonny Dykes is an absolutely brutal schedule with non-conference games against Northwestern and Ohio State as well as five PAC-12 road games (4 at home). 5Dimes has Cal lined at 4.5un-160 wins.

College Football ATS Notes: Louisiana Tech braces for Houston offense

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Houston -6.5 at Louisiana Tech O/U 70.5

Some good news and notes for this weekend's Houston-Louisiana Tech matchup in Ruston. Tech head coach Sonny Dykes seemed somewhat pleased with his offense's performance in last week's 48-42 overtime win over Central Arkansas. He noted however that they'll need to be in better form in order to match the inevitable onslaught of touchdowns from Houston. Dykes also talked about finding ways to rest the defense without disrupting the rhythm of the offense. Perhaps more concerning is LT's defense which surrendered 445 Read more

NCAAF Handicapping: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs at Southern Miss Golden Eagles

Louisiana Tech at Southern Miss -13 O/U 59.5

Good article breaking down Saturday's Southern Miss/Louisiana Tech matchup. USM will unveil a new 4-2-5 defense while Tech will start 17-year old freshman quarterback Nick Isham. Isham wasn't even listed on some preseason depth charts though we trust that he has some talent after earning the job this fall. Sonny Dykes mentioned that they'll try to get his feet wet by running the football and calling a handful of short pass plays.


“I am sure he will be a little nervous. It’s his first Read more

NCAAF Betting Notes: Dykes says Cameron is No. 1 quarterback

07.20.2011     11:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It appears as if Louisiana Tech will (for the time being) go with junior Colby Cameron at quarterback. According to head coach Sonny Dykes, Cameron performed well during the spring as has a good grasp on the offense. Last season, Tech's quarterback rotation was never ending with three different signal callers earning starts. The offense was at its best with veteran Ross Jenkins though he didn't offer much in the way of big play potential. Jenkins has since graduated, leaving Cameron in charge. The Bulldogs also have two JC transfers and incoming freshman Nick Isham should Cameron not deliver. Even with a brutal schedule (seven road games at: Southern Miss, Mississippi State, Idaho, Utah State, Fresno State, Ole Miss and Nevada) we project LT's offense to make a significant jump in the second year under Dykes and offensive coordinator Tony Franklin.

Football Handicapping: Late week line moves

11.05.2010     12:19 PM     Printer Friendly
A couple of significant line moves over the back half of the week worth mentioning.

Tonight’s Western Michigan at Central Michigan contest sat at CMU -3.5 for much of the week until today, when enough action came in on the Broncos to push the line down to the key number of -3. The total saw some small movement upward (51 to 52.5).

South Carolina opened as a 3-point favorite over Arkansas. Early in the week, there was two-way action as the line bounced back and forth between -3 and -3.5. On Tuesday, however, there was a considerable push on the Gamecock side as -4 became the prevailing market number. Current line is now -4.5 with a couple market indicators showing that we could see -5 shortly.

East Carolina opened as a 3-point favorite over Navy and it stayed that way until late last night/early today when various shops got enough action on the Midshipmen that they bumped the line down to -2.5 Those interested in playing this contest should be able to find key numbers (+3/-2.5) on Read more
