Holiday Bowl Betting Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Washington State Cougars

Minnesota at Washington State
Holiday Bowl - San Diego
Tuesday, 4 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Washington State -5.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Washington State -8 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Washington State

The Minnesota Golden Gophers had to deal with a lot of non-football related issues in the lead up to tonight's Holiday Bowl against Washington State. First there was the suspension of 10 players. Then there was a team boycott that was eventually "lifted." Now you have a petition going around calling for the firing of head coach Tracy Claeys. It's been a month since the Gophers last played and one has to question how much actual game planning took place during that span.

A number of the suspensions came from the secondary which is obviously not where you want to be thin against Mike Leach's offense led by quarterback Luke Falk. Minnesota will be without two starting cornerbacks (Kiante Hardin and Antoine Winfield Jr.) and two key backups (Ray Buford and Antonio Shenault). Even at full strength, this was a unit that ranked 13th in the Big Ten against the pass. Falk completed 71% of his Read more

Washington State at Oregon State
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Washington State -15.5 O/U 65.5
CRIS Current: Washington State -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Oregon State

My clients and I cashed in betting against Washington State as road chalk last week in a closer-than-expected non-covering win at Arizona State.  And there’s absolutely no reason to think that the Cougs are being priced appropriately as double-digit road favorites as they travel to Corvallis on Saturday night.

This is the wrong price range for Washington State in a very hostile road environment.  It’s also the wrong pointspread range for an Oregon State team that has been getting killed on the highway, but consistently playing competitive football at Reser Stadium.

There’s been one very consistent facet of Mike Leach coached teams, dating back to his tenure at Texas Tech – they have letdowns, not a coach who’s prone to guiding his team to extended winning streaks.  In his fifth season at Washington State, the Cougars current five game winning streak is the longest Read more

Las Vegas Bowl Betting Preview: BYU Cougars vs. Utah Utes

Las Vegas Bowl
BYU vs. Utah
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Utah -2.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Utah -2.5 O/U 51.5
Recommendation: BYU

Utah has been drawing significant support in recent bowl games, in large part due to Kyle Whiitingham’s impressive track record: 7-1 SU, 6-2 ATS in his eight bowls with the Utes.  They blew out Colorado State 45-10 last year.  And bettors certainly haven’t forgotten outright bowl upsets against the likes of Alabama, Cal, and Georgia Tech (twice) in the Whiitingham era.

The Utes have also enjoyed great success in recent seasons against their in-state rival.  The Utes have won each of the last four meetings since 2010 – three tight victories by a touchdown or less, and a 54-10 wipeout in Provo back in 2011. The two teams didn’t meet in the regular season this year, making this matchup a highly anticipated revenge meeting for the slight underdog.

For many of these minor bowls, motivation is a key element of the handicap.  That’s most assuredly not the case in this game.  These two programs Read more

College Football Gambling: Miami looks to end bowl win drought

12.14.2015     07:55 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a long time since Miami won a bowl game. You'd have to go back to the Larry Coker era when the Hurricanes defeated Nevada in the 2006 MPC Computers Bowl. Last season, they lost to South Carolina, 24-21, as -3 favorites. And the year before that they were woodshedded by Louisville, 36-9. Miami is currently a +3 underdog for its Sun Bowl matchup vs. Washington State. Note that the Cougs are also hungry to get into the bowl win column. They've been to the postseason once since 2003; a 48-45 loss to Colorado State in the 2013 New Mexico Bowl.


"We have to change that, definitely. It looks bad for our bowl record," quarterback Brad Kaaya said of the Hurricanes' postseason losing streak.

"We've just got to change it this game. I mean, that's the plan right now. … Miami's been known in the past for winning big games and postseason games. We have to bring that tradition back and hopefully, this starts it off for the next however many decades."

UCLA at Utah
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Utah -2 O/U 59.5
CRIS Current: Utah -2 O/U 58
Recommendation: Utah

My clients and I cashed our 20* PAC-12 Game Of The Year last week with Washington State as the Cougars got the dramatic outright win at UCLA. This week, the Bruins and opponent Utah are both in the mix (along with USC) to win the South Division and get to the PAC-12 Championship game so this game is obviously very important for both sides.

We’ve seen multiple key injuries throughout the season decimate UCLA’s defense highlighted by cluster injuries at LB with Myles Jack and Isaako Savaiinaea going down earlier in the season. The Bruins have yielded 24+ points to every team they have faced in the PAC-12 this season with the exception of a struggling and injury riddled Oregon State offense that didn’t have its starting quarterback. The Bruins’ defense simply didn’t make any key stops in crunch time last week as it allowed Washington State’s offense led by quarterback Luke Falk to march down the field for the game winning touchdown in the Read more

College Football Handicapping: Oregon State's defense is a total mess

10.14.2015     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Three games, 918 yards, and 6.0 ypc is what Oregon State allowed on the ground to Michigan, Stanford, and Arizona. The good news is Beavers' offensive coordinator Kalani Sitake said, "...it can't get any worse."

Following last week's blowout loss to Arizona, Sitake said it would be impossible to simplify the defense more than it already has.

Saturday's opponent, Washington State, isn't going to run for 300 yards but it’ll assuredly be able to move the ball via the pass against an OSU team that has a hard time applying pressure on the quarterback and making open field tackles.

The total was bet up from 55.5 to 59.5.

Washington State at Oregon
Saturday, 3 pm PT - PAC-12 Network
CRIS Opener:
Oregon -17 O/U 74
CRIS Current: Oregon -17 O/U 70
Recommendation: Washington State

Last week the Oregon Ducks took control in the second half against Colorado turning a tie game at half into a 41-24 win as they rebounded at least temporarily from the embarrassing 62-20 home loss to the Utah Utes. However, I feel the Washington State Cougars have enough edges and a good enough offense right now to make this a competitive game for a full 60 minutes.

Oregon is on a 0-3 ATS slide at home failing to even sniff pointspread covers in games against Eastern Washington (won by 19 laying -35), Georgia State (won by 33 laying -42.5) and the aforementioned loss to Utah. Washington State is getting very solid quarterback play from Luke Falk who has completed 72.6% of his passes for 1,459 passing yards and a strong 10-2 TD-INT ratio. The ability to move the football through the air is exactly what Oregon has struggled against dating back to last season. In 2013, the Ducks' secondary was one of the best in the country as opposing Read more

College Football Gambling Update: Cal takes big early money for fifth straight week

09.29.2015     08:09 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Another big early week market move towards the California Golden Bears (3-1 ATS) as they play host to Washington State. Last week, the Bears were bet up from -2 to -5 against Washington. However, late money had the Huskies go off as -1 favorites at some offshore sportsbooks. It was the wrong opinion as Cal won the game 30-24. This week, CRIS opened Cal -13.5 and it has since been bet up to -19.5. Again, we're talking about a Week 4 college football power conference side, not some soft Week 1 Sun Belt total.

Boise State at BYU
Saturday, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Boise State -2 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Boise State -3 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Under

A lot of angles to consider with this matchup as Boise State travels to BYU. The biggest of course is the season-ending injury to BYU's Taysom Hill. No doubt Hill was a special player but the Cougars have plenty of experience playing without him and during his absence last season, there wasn't a significant drop off in offensive production. In four games with Hill, BYU averaged 450 ypg and 37.5 ppg. In eight games without Hill, BYU averaged 470 ypg and 39 ppg. Freshman Tanner Mangum is slated to take over for hill. Magnum, who just turned 22 years old, comes in highly regarded.

I have my concerns with Boise State's quarterback Ryan Finley who didn't look particularly comfortable in Week 1's narrow win over Washington. Finely threw for only 129 yards on 26 pass attempts including an interception. It was clear in the second half when the Huskies narrowed the margin that head coach Bryan Harsin didn't have a lot of confidence in his sophomore signal Read more
