Appalachian State at Tennessee
Thursday, 4:30 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -22.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Tennessee -21 O/U 59
Recommendation: Tennessee

This will mark the third year in a row the Tennessee Volunteers play a strong mid-major to open the season and thus far, Butch Jones has made sure the Vols passed each test. In 2014, UT beat a 10-win Utah State team 38-7 and last season, cruised past high-powered Bowling Green, 59-30. Last year’s Sun Belt runners-up return 15 starters are a co-betting favorites with Arkansas State to win the conference title. Many think this will be a breakout year for Tennessee as the Vols are currently priced at -125 chalk to win the SEC East and the third betting choice (+420) to win the SEC championship.

Jones’ offense features two incredible playmakers in senior quarterback Joshua Dobbs and junior running back Jalen Hurd. Add to it a strong offensive line as well as talented depth at the skill positions and we have reason to believe the Vols will be able to move the ball with ease. And while Appalachian State will have edges on Read more

Florida State at Florida
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Florida pk O/U 435
CRIS Current: Florida State -2.5 O/U 43
Recommendation: Florida

Florida State has moved to the favorite role for this annual in-state rivalry showdown but I’m not sure it is warranted. It appears that bettors flocking to the FSU side are reacting to Florida’s lackluster overtime win over Florida Atlantic last week.

Both teams' SOS is similar but a closer looks shows Florida has been far more challenged against upper-tier competition and fared extremely well in those games. The Gators scored straight up and ATS wins over Georgia, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. Their lone loss when asked to step up in class was a touchdown defeat in Baton Rouge against an LSU that at the time was undefeated. Florida State meanwhile has played only one team currently in ranked among Sagarin's top 30. That of course was against Clemson as the Seminoles managed to slip under the number but were outgained heavily, 512-361. The Tigers are obviously more potent with the ball compared to the Gators, but it was a similar Read more

Alabama at Georgia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -2.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Georgia -2.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Over

Georgia's defense hasn't been tested at all this season with three games against the pedestrian offenses of UL-Monroe, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina. Keep in mind, the Bulldogs have replaced five of their front seven from a year ago. And last year's defense didn't exactly hold up well against the better offenses of the SEC. For starters, they didn't play Mississippi State and Alabama who ranked second and fourth respectively in SEC play in terms of total offense. The did shut down Auburn but the game was somewhat of an aberration as the Tigers coughed up the football three times. Against South Carolina, who ranked third, Georgia allowed 6.21 yards per play and 38 points. Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky all topped 30+ points as well.

Dating back to last season, we've seen Alabama's defense struggle against dynamic offenses. Auburn hung 44 points and 630 yards and Ohio State moved the ball practically at will en route to a 42-35 bowl win. And two Read more

College Football Handicapping: Analyzing SEC Bye Weeks

07.24.2015     09:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the ultra-competitive SEC, a well or poorly placed bye week can have a big impact on a team's season. Your opponents' bye week can also play a factor back in 2010 we pointed out that Alabama really got the shaft with nearly its entire slate having a bye week before playing the Crimson Tide.

Lets take a look at the entire conference and analyze the potential impact of each squad's bye week.

SEC EAST
Florida
Bye Week: October 24
Prior Game: at LSU
Upcoming Game: at Georgia
Analysis: Per usual, the Gators get a week off before the World's Largest Cocktail Party. It also breaks up a tough stretch of five straight league games, including three on the road. The bad news is Georgia also comes in off a bye.

Kentucky
Bye Week: October 10
Prior Game: vs. Eastern Kentucky
Upcoming Game: (Thu) vs. Auburn
Analysis: Cats with one of the earliest bye weeks in Read more

Tennessee State at Tennessee -21.5 O/U 127
Recommendation: Under


Despite the coaching change from Cuonzo Martin to Donnie Tyndall, the Vols really haven't changed much with a vast majority of their games of the slow paced, low scoring variety. With the exception of their contest at NC State that went wild the last 10 minutes (58 points), UT's recent game scores have been 126, 129, 122, 119, and 118. Tennessee should have no trouble keeping Tennessee State under wraps offensively. The Tigers are in complete rebuilding mode and feature a roster with little to do DI experience. Against DI foes, they've notched north of 60 points only twice. And when asked to step up in class they scored a combined 82 points vs. Vanderbilt and Virginia with both games going under today's posted total. The concern here is if the home side goes wild and the second half turns into a pick-up game. The Vols however have yet to show the ability to score at will with their biggest win of the season coming by 12 points. On Monday we saw them grind out a 64-54 win vs. Mercer. I look for a similar output this evening.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bowl season has history of controversy

12.08.2014     08:08 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There was always going to be controversy.  The system is designed to produce controversy or in 21st century parlance, to generate buzz.  And from the beginning, the college football playoffs were fraught with difficult decisions about which schools deserved to play for the title, and which ones would be on the outside of the process, looking in.

1998 was the beginning of the BCS Bowl era.  The 1998 Fiesta Bowl was the first official national title game; coming on the heels of the split national title between Michigan and Nebraska the previous season.  And while there wasn’t much controversy involving the two teams that played for the title (Tennessee and Florida State), the system itself was under fire from the get-go.  One loss Kansas State finished third in the final BCS standings, but the Wildcats were passed over by all the BCS Bowls, relegated to an Alamo Bowl matchup against Purdue.  To the surprise of no one, the system for choosing the BCS Bowl teams was tweaked the following year.

In 1999, Kansas State finished sixth in the BCS standings, yet they were passed over again.  Michigan got a BCS bowl bid over Michigan Read more

Missouri at Tennessee
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -3 O/U 47.5
CRIS Current: Tennessee -3.5 O/U 47
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Missouri -0..5
OTTO Sports’ Recommendation: Over

Tennessee looks to continues its strong play as it plays host to Missouri on Saturday. Winners of back-to-back games, the Vols (5-5) are knocking at the door of bowl eligibility. The Tigers meanwhile quietly find themselves in position to reach the SEC Championship with a game lead over Georgia. Since getting shutout at home vs. the Bulldogs, the Mizzou has ripped off four straight including last week's upset win at Texas A&M.

Justin Worley's injury was actually a blessing in disguise with his inability to make plays with his feet causing major issues behind a weak offensive line. Joshua Dobbs has since stepped in and shown capable of escaping pressure and throwing the football. Read more

College Football Gambling: Memphis Tigers a hot commodity among bettors

09.17.2014     07:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The betting markets showing a real fondness for the Memphis Tigers who play host to Middle Tennessee State on Saturday. Memphis is off to a 2-0 start with a 69-0 win over Austin Peay and a near upset of UCLA (42-35) in Los Angeles. In last year's meeting vs. the Blue Raiders, Memphis was +66 in total yards and +120 on the ground but lost on a late field goal 17-15. Note than MTSU was an 8-point favorite in that contest. A year later we see Memphis open -7.5, initially bet down to -7, and then steamed up to -12.5. It's a meteoric rise considering in November of last season, Memphis was laying -13.5 vs. UT-Martin.

Missouri +1 at Alabama O/U 136
Recommendation: Missouri


Missouri comes in to Tuscaloosa on a three-game win streak while the host Crimson Tide has lost six of seven. Alabama is basically down to six players after forward Nick Jacobs took an indefinite leave of absence. Bama dropped its first game without Jacobs to Texas A&M, 63-48, on Wednesday night and played six players 25 minutes or more and two others for a combined four minutes. Only two of the six players are taller than 6-7 and both are freshmen. Bama may have the least amount of talent in the conference with only guard Trevor Releford playing at a high level. The Tide somehow has been installed as a favorite over a 19-7 Missouri team. The Tigers’ win streak has come at home with close wins over Arkansas, Tennessee, and Vandy, but they have some decent road wins this year. Missouri won at Arkansas and Auburn as well as at NC State in non-league play. The Tigers are definitely on the bubble for an NCAA tourney berth, and shouldn’t overlook the struggling Tide in this one. Mizzou had no trouble in the first matchup between these teams, crushing Alabama 68-47 at home a month ago. Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 13 Injury Report

11.21.2013     04:26 PM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Utah quarterback Travis Wilson is out for the rest of the season and his career could be in jeopardy after he sustained a concussion two weeks ago in a 20-19 home loss to Arizona St. Wilson finished 2013 with a 16-16 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Utes’ sophomore Adam Schulz started in last week’s 44-21 loss at Oregon, completing 13-of-30 passes for 181 yards with one TD and one interception. In four games this year, Schulz has connected on just 35-of-75 throws (46.7%) for 428 yards with a 2-2 TD-INT ratio.

Florida QB Tyler Murphy is ‘questionable’ vs. Georgia Southern due to a shoulder injury. Making his first career start and taking his first snap at the collegiate level last week, Sklyer Mornhinweg completed 10-of-13 passes for 107 yards in a 19-14 loss at South Carolina. UF didn’t put too much on his plate with most of his throws consisting of screen passes and short patterns. However, the redshirt freshman should be credited for being accurate and only making one mistake, an interception on the final drive with just over one minute remaining. The Gators are favored by 28 against the Eagles.

Missouri QB James Franklin is Read more
