NFL Gambling Notes: Philadelphia secondary could be vulnerable vs. Patriots

11.27.2011     06:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
New England -3 at Philadelphia O/U 50.5

Philadelphia's offensive injuries have been hogging the headlines but flying under the radar is a banged up secondary.  Cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) and Nnamdi Asomugha (knee) are currently listed as questionable. Not a favorable situation if those two can't go against New England's passing attack.

College Basketball Betting Notes: Taking a look at the money burners

11.27.2011     06:34 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Taking a look at a handful of college basketball teams that have been “money burners” thus far. Most of these teams can continue to be bet against as the oddsmakers and market have been slow to catch up. Keep in mind though that those with new personnel will eventually become more adjusted  as coaches work to create the right player rotation. When that happens, teams can flip the switch from “money burners” to “money earners”. 

Texas Tech (0-4 ATS, Next Game: 11/27 vs. Wake Forest) - Hiring Billy Gillispie was a good move -- for the long term. Pat Knight didn't leave much in terms of talent and the bad habits that plagued the Red Raiders during Knight's tenure are still present. The fact that Tech is an underdog to Wake Forest on a neutral court tells you just how sour oddmakers and the market currently are. They'll be catching plenty of points once Big XII play starts.

Texas (0-3 ATS, Next Game: 11/29 vs. North Texas) - Usually the market doesn't take too kindly to teams returning less than two starters but the Longhorns were given the benefit of the doubt with a strong group of Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Pick: Washington Redskins at Seattle Seahawks

Washington at Seattle -3 O/U 37.5
Recommendation: Seattle

After a promising 3-1 start, it’s obviously been all downhill for the Redskins. They’ve now lost six straight games including last week’s heartbreaker to the Cowboys.  From a talent perspective it’s just hard to envision this team even coming close to challenging their NFC East Division rivals down the stretch.  Playing one of their rivals won’t be the case this week as they travel to the northwest to face the Seahawks.  The Seahawks certainly have their own issues; however they’ve now won two games in a row including an upset over the Ravens two weeks ago on this same home turf.  The key match-up in this game points to Seattle's defensive line against the Redskins' offensive line.  Seattle’s front five is playing at a very strong level right now with Red Bryant, Chris Clemons, Brandon Mebane and company. Meanwhile, the Redskins o-line is banged up beyond belief Read more

NFL Handicapping: Arizona's Skelton slated to start against Rams

Arizona at St. Louis -2.5 O/U 39.5

Looks like another week with John Skelton under center for Arizona as Kevin Kolb was downgraded to doubtful yesterday. Skelton looked halfway decent his first two starts against the Rams and Eagles (537 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs) but took a step back last week with only 99 yards and three picks against San Francisco's stout defense.

The last time these two teams met, St. Louis was able to statistically dominate much of the game. In fact, the Cardinals' first nine drives averaged only 19 yards before they went on an 84-yard TD drive late in the fourth to tie the game. Arizona went on to win in OT when Patrick Peterson returned a 99-yard punt for a touchdown.

We may be able to start betting on NBA games by Christmas!

11.26.2011     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Bettors rejoice! The NBA reached a tentative agreement earlier today to end the lockout and start an abbreviated season on Christmas Day.

"We thought it was in both of our interest to try to reach a resolution and save the game and to be able to provide the mind of superb entertainment the NBA historically has provided," Hunter said.

"For us the litigation is something that just has to be dealt with," Stern said. "It was not the reason for the settlement. The reason for the settlement was we've got fans, we've got players who would like to play and we've got others who are dependent on us. And it's always been our goal to reach a deal that was fair to both sides and get us playing as soon as possible, but that took a little time.

College Football Handicapping: Breaking down the Big East race

11.26.2011     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With Louisville's win over South Florida yesterday, the race for the Big East crown got a bit clearer thanks to this explanation. The Cardinals are in the best spot (5-2) and just need Cincinnati to lose one of its final two games (at Syracuse, vs. UConn). Louisville's players seem pretty confident as a few were comfortable posing with oranges following yesterday's win – hello Orange Bowl berth? Rutgers and Cincinnati are still alive but need various things to happen to one another. West Virginia needs a three-way tie and hope for a higher BCS ranking (game vs. LSU?) to earn a bid.

College Football Gambling Pick: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Baylor Bears

Texas Tech +13 vs. Baylor O/U 80
Recommendation: Texas Tech

Remember when Texas Tech upset Oklahoma earlier this season? They next time out the Red Raiders lost at home by 34 as 15.5-point underdogs. In fact, they've played only one competitive game since. Last week, Baylor joined the party and took down the Sooners on the strength of Heisman candidate Robert Griffin. It was the Bears' first-ever win in 21 tries over the Sooners. Today's game will take place at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas and Baylor closes out the regular season next week at home against another high profile team it doesn't have much of a track record against in Texas. Texas Tech is still going to need to show up for this one. Last week, we finally saw some fight from this bunch in a four-point loss at Missouri. At 5-6, the Red Raiders obviously need a win to go to the postseason. For how dynamic Baylor can be, let's not forget that this isn't a very good defense. In fact, in conference play, Texas Read more
