College Football Betting Preview: Baylor Bears at Texas Longhorns

Baylor at Texas
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -2.5 O/U 70
CRIS Current: Baylor -3 O/U 69
Recommendation: Over

After going under the total in two straight games, I look for Texas' beleaguered defense to be exposed yet again when they face Baylor on Saturday. It's been a constant theme this season that capable offenses can move the ball at will against the Longhorns. Over a three-game swatch against California, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma, UT allowed 1,734 yards at a startling 7.3 yards per play.

Perhaps more important to this handicapper is how flawed Baylor's defensive numbers are. The Bears' schedule comes up ultra-light with games against Northwestern State, SMU, Rice, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Kansas. There is one game in particular that stands out as alarming and that's what Iowa State was able to do with the football against the Bears a few weeks back. The Cyclones posted arguably their best offensive showing of the year with 204 yards on the ground and 261 through the air. All told, ISU averaged over 6 yards per play.

NBA Handicapping: New York Knicks are apparently the hot futures ticket

10.25.2016     11:02 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
In typical reactionary fashion, Las Vegas sportsbooks have significantly lowered the odds on the New York Knicks to win the NBA Championship. MGM has them currently at 20-1 (LOL!). Last year, the Knicks were lined at 29.5 wins and crept over with a 32-50 mark. This year, they're pegged to improve by 8.5 wins (O/U 40.5).

NFL Gambling Alert: With Hoyer out, Bears forced to go back to the well with Cutler

10.25.2016     10:54 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With Brian Hoyer out, the Chicago Bears will turn back to Jay Cutler who hasn't played since Week 2. The Bears actually rank 10th in the NFL in yards per play (5.8) but have topped 17 points only once -- 23 against defensively inept Indianapolis. Cutler will be tasked with going up against the league's top pass defense on Monday night. The Vikings allow only 5.8 yards per attempt and a league-best 63.7 opposing QB rating.

"At the end of the day, obviously Jay's our starter," Fox asserted. "He was injured and not permitted to play medically. And now that he's healed, he's back to being our starter. That's really the facts and kind of what happened and where we're at now."

College Football Handicapping: South Carolina moves forward with two frosh quarterbacks

10.25.2016     10:46 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Looks like South Carolina is going the youth movement route as senior quarterback Perry Orth has been phased out of what has been a revolving door of starters. Orth didn't play in last week's 34-28 win over UMass as the Gamecocks topped 20 points for the first time this season. Freshmen Jake Bentley and Brandon McIlwain will now battle for playing time moving forward. Bentley started against the Minutemen and is expected to do the same vs. Tennessee.

“I just feel like right now, from an ability standpoint, (Bentley and McIlwain) give us the best opportunity, and they’re just going to keep getting better,” Muschamp said. “Both of them do things equally well, and we’ll continue to rep that way.”

“Competition is my best friend, and those guys are two competitive guys,” Muschamp said. “They are going to go out every single day and battle and support each other. It’s going to be good for the Gamecocks. That’s what I’m looking forward to. We have two good

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Tampa Bay Lightning at Toronto Maple Leafs

Tampa Bay -130 at Toronto O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Over

The Toronto Maple Leafs return home tonight to host fellow Atlantic Division foe, the Tampa Bay Lightning. Toronto has been very competitive to open the year despite its 1-1-3 record. The Leafs earned five points in six games which is an improvement from their 1-7-2 start to open last season. First overall pick Auston Matthews has been on fire, scoring five goals and dishing out three assists in his first five games. He's accounted for nearly a third of the Leafs' overall scoring. Tampa Bay started the season with four straight home games (3-1). They now continue a six-game road trek after winning their opening contest 4-1 over Ottawa. The Lightning have been getting offensive contributions throughout the lineup, which is typically the norm with this club. Nine different skaters have lit the lamp in five games with center Alex Killorn leading the club with four goals. The Maple Leafs are 3-0-2 O/U thus far, while Tampa is only 2-2-1 O/U but have scored three or more goals in each game. The Bolts have won 7 Read more
