College Basketball Gambling: Oklahoma State remains short on bodies

03.04.2016     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Keep an eye out for the status of Oklahoma State's Jeffrey Carroll (illness) and Leyton Hammonds (finger). Both players missed Monday's game against Iowa State as the Cowboys managed only 50 points due to an ultra-depleted roster. OSU is currently +4.5 against Texas.


“We’re going to have five out there,” Ford said Wednesday. “Now, I don’t know which five at times, but whatever five we have out there, I expect them to play hard.”

“You’d be lying if you didn’t say it was frustrating at times, but you don’t let it get you down,” Ford said. “You don’t let it interfere, you’re trying to prepare with the guys who are playing. That’s kind of my mindset for the coaching staff and all the players.”

Texas at Baylor
Saturday, 9 am PT
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -20 O/U 68.5
CRIS Current: Baylor -20.5 O/U 68.5
Recommendation: Baylor
 
This BIG XII showdown pins two in-state rivals playing to boost their postseason resumes. Baylor is in all likelihood eliminated from the playoff but still has a shot at a Sugar Bowl invite. The Longhorns are also fighting for a bowl berth. Though they should have been eliminated following their 48-45 loss to Texas Tech, at least two 5-7 teams will be selected for a bowl game according to the NCAA. Given the strength of Texas' brand many fans think they would be in, but NCAA officials state the 5-7 teams selected will be determined by Academic Progress Rate which in Texas’ case (958) probably won’t be high enough to qualify. In any case with Baylor motivated and injuries mounting, it will be a tall task for Charlie Strong’s Longhorns in Waco.

The Longhorns have avoided major injuries for much of the season but that run of good fortune came to a screeching halt on Thanksgiving against Texas Tech. Linebacker Peter Jinkens (torn ACL), right guard Read more

Texas at Iowa State
Saturday, 4 pm PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
Texas -8 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Texas -6.5 O/U 53
Recommendation: Under

All four of Texas' Big XII games have gone under the total, and three of the four weren't even close as the market has had a tough time adjusting. The Longhorns have run the ball more than any team in league play (51 times per game) and attempted the fewest passes (18.3 times per game). There's no reason to think they'll change that mentality off of back-to-back wins and facing a team in Iowa State the has difficulty stopping the run.

A lot of change for Iowa State heading into this game as offensive coordinator Mark Mangino was let go and sophomore quarterback Joel Lanning will get the start. Lanning took over for senior Sam Richardson in last week's loss to Baylor. His stats look good (12-of-17, 144 yards, 3 TDs) though the Cyclones were trailing 35-0 midway through the second quarter. The change is clearly a last ditch effort to turn things around for head coach Paul Rhoads who is obviously on the hot seat. Given the short turnaround, I'm not expecting it to have Read more

College Football Gambling: Iowa State fires offensive coordinator Mark Mangino

10.27.2015     08:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Man, another offensive coordinator bites the dust. This time it's Iowa State's loveable Mark Mangino who reportedly wasn't getting along with head coach Paul Rhoads. The Cyclones actually rank a respectable 5th in the Big XII in total offense (464.4 ypg) in league play. Assistant Todd Sturdy will take over and sophomore Joe Lanning will get the nod at quarterback. ISU is currently a +6.5 home underdog to Texas for Saturday.


"Mark and I couldn't get on the same page on a few important items," Rhoads said. "We tried to talk that through again this morning to get us moving in a different direction. In the end, Mark was not interested in that."

California at Texas
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
California -3 O/U 60
CRIS Current: California -7 O/U 58
Recommendation: Texas

We’re getting a real pointspread bargain here thanks to the nuances of the betting marketplace here in September.   The bettable line for this game from the Westgate Superbook here in Las Vegas, exactly one month ago, was Texas -9.5.  Let me repeat that: Texas -9.5.  Personnel wise, virtually nothing has changed in the last month.  But the perception of these two teams has changed in the markets, and that offers us legitimate value.

Cal was a hot team in the betting markets in Week 1, taking money against FCS Grambling.  They closed as 45-point favorites and covered the spread by two touchdowns.  Last week, the money poured in on the Bears immediately after the line was posted.  Cal opened as low as -7 against San Diego State, but they closed -13 and again, covered the spread by two touchdowns.

What have we seen this week?  The exact same betting pattern!  Cal opened as -3 favorites Read more

College Football Gambling Update: Texas switches play caller after one game

09.09.2015     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Knee-jerk or justified? The jury is out as Texas head coach Charlie Strong announced that wide receiver coach Jay Norvell will now call plays following Week 1's 38-3 loss to Notre Dame. Norvell takes over for co-OC Shawn Watson. Yes, the Longhorns' offense performance against the Irish was abysmal but playing on the road against a top-tier defense as you attempt to break in a new offense isn't ideal. We'll see how the Longhorns respond this weekend against Rice. The Owls return four starters on defense after allowing 28.5 ppg last year. Note the Rice's schedule included seven teams that ranked 100th or worse in total offense.


"We have to evaluate every aspect of this program and what's key is getting this program on track," Strong said during a Tuesday evening press conference. "We have to do a better job of coaching.

Notre Dame at Virginia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -10 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -11.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Virginia

There is not much to dislike about Notre Dame’s impressive 38-3 romp over the Texas Longhorns last week. For starters, they outgained the Longhorns by a stunning 527-163 margin. Quarterback Malik Zaire was terrific completing 19-for-22 passes for 313 yards with 3 TDs and no picks and the ground attack led by C.J. Prosise and Josh Adams combined for 147 yards and 5.88 yards per carry. It was dominance on both sides of the line of scrimmage for Notre Dame who allowed just 60 rushing yards at a paltry 2.1 yards per carry clip and yielded barely over 100 yards passing amazing when you consider UT was playing the entire game from behind. However, as a result, we appear to be laying a tax with the Irish to go along with the early market support.

Virginia didn’t play its best in a 34-16 loss at UCLA but it is never an easy travel/scheduling situation Read more

College Football Handicapping: Back to the drawing board for Texas' offense

09.08.2015     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not every team can make a seamless transition from traditional to up-tempo offense. Texas managed only 163 yards in Week 1's 38-3 blowout loss at Notre Dame. Keep in mind that the Irish defense, when healthy and not littered with suspensions like what occurred the back half of last season, is a top 20 unit. That said, the performance didn't bode well for the Longhorns after saying they wanting to pick up the pace in 2015. UT's next three opponents present far better opportunities to move the football with Rice (55th in total defense LY), Oklahoma State (93rd), and California (124th) all headed to Austin. Of course one game into the season and head coach Charlie Strong is already questioning his offensive coordinator.


"We have to change. We have to get better on offense," Strong said of his Texas team.

"Things can always get fixed," Strong said, continuing saying that it's just about rolling up your sleeps and getting things done.

Texas at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -8.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -9 O/U 49
Recommendation: Under

The theme of the entire offseason for Texas was the adoption of a new "up-tempo" system. This after the Longhorns averaged 337.3 ypg of total offense in 2014. It's a logical choice considering the current climate of college football and the Big XII in particular but not every move to up-tempo yields instant results like what we witnessed with TCU. Initial reports suggest that the Longhorns aren't really changing the playbook but rather attempting to play at a faster pace. Either way, expect some early season growing pains. And it's not just the offense you worry about. Typically when teams decide more plays and possessions is the route to go, the defense tends to suffer. And defense was the sole reason why Texas was halfway competitive last season.

It was a tale of two seasons for Notre Dame's defense last season. Aided by health, depth, and a favorable slate in terms of opponents' offensive potency, the Irish had the look of a top 10 unit. But Read more

Texas +4.5 at West Virginia O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Texas


Going to step in play Texas at +4.5 (a few +5's available) as it heads to West Virginia this evening. Some bettors will undoubtedly point toward the revenge angle (UT won 77-50 in Austin) and the Longhorns' spotty play of late (back-to-back losses). But at the current price there is some value on the underdog as WVU enters off back-to-back upsets and doesn't match up particularly well against UT's front court. While Texas has plenty of weakness -- most notably a lack of consistency -- they do defend well in the paint. In their last two losses, Oklahoma and Iowa State shot a combined 28-of-77, 36.3% from two. What did them in what allowing 20 three-pointers. But unlike the Sooners and Cyclones, the Mountaineers don't have much of any outside shooting prowess. On the season, they've connected on only 30.9% of their three-point attempts. Another angle to consider is WVU's element of surprise, or lack thereof in this spot. In five "second meets" in Big XII pay, the Mountaineers have covered only once; against bottom feeder Texas Tech. Teams clearly know what to expect and while Texas Read more
