College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Vanderbilt Commodores

Florida at Vanderbilt
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Florida -9.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Florida -10/5 O/U 40.5
Recommendation: Florida

Florida returns to the Volunteer State for the second week in a row, hoping for better results than last week’s 38-28 loss to Tennessee.  The Gators got off to a big 21-0 lead in the second quarter but after halftime, the wheels fell as Tennessee scored 35 straight points. The second half turnaround was amazing as Florida had outgained Tennessee 300-162 in the first half and averaged 8.8 yards per play.  Florida played very conservatively in the second half on offense while Tennessee came out ferociously and it showed, with the Gators having five straight three-and-outs.

I am going to overlook the second half of that game and focus on what Florida did in the first half and in their other games this season. They had allowed 14 points in the first three games prior to Tennessee and are made up of some solid NFL prospects. Vanderbilt does not pose anywhere near the threat that Tennessee did with quarterback Joshua Dobbs and his Read more

College Football Betting Preview: South Florida Bulls at Cincinnati Bearcats

South Florida at Cincinnati
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
South Florida -6 O/U 59.5
CRIS Current: South Florida -5.5 O/U 61
Recommendation: Over

Conference opener for both teams and I expect the offenses to have the better of it. The Bulls have been rolling along quite efficiently with their up-tempo, run based spread offense; 35+ points in all four games. They’ve averaged over 7 yards per play and face a Bearcats defense that in two games against their toughest competition (Houston and Purdue) allowed 500+ total yards. USF has scored at least 35 points in eight consecutive games and at least 200 rushing yards in nine straight games dating back to last year. Even in last week’s narrow 27-20 win over Miami (OH), the Bearcats yielded nearly 6 yards per play. I don’t trust Cincinnati to neutralize South Florida’s balanced offensive attack that carved up the Bearcats for 65 points on 573 total yards last season. Quarterback Quinton Flowers and running back Marlon Mack had a field day in that contest and I think both are poised for more success here.

College Football Betting Preview: Baylor Bears at Iowa State Cyclones

Baylor at Iowa State
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -16.5 O/U 59
CRIS Current: Baylor -17 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Over

It's not too often you see Baylor involved in a game with a total in the low 60's. In fact, Saturday will mark the lowest total for the Bears since midseason 2014. Even last year's trip to Manhattan to face slow paced and ultra-conservative Kansas State State closed 67. Also interesting is the fact that last year's meeting against Iowa State closed 74.5; it landed just short with Baylor winning in Ames, 45-27.

ISU has shown no ability to stop the high octane offenses in the Big XII. Last season, against Texas Tech, TCU, Baylor, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma State, the Cyclones allowed 48.6 ppg. And thanks to playing from behind in a majority of those contests, ISU proved capable of putting the ball in the end zone with scores of 31, 21, 27, 16, and 31. In the end, all five of those contests topped 61 points (73.8 average). Against TCU earlier this season, Iowa State coughed up 41 in just over three quarters as the Horned Frogs were content to sit on the ball late. Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Central Florida Knights at East Carolina Pirates

Central Florida at East Carolina
Saturday, 9 am PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
East Carolina -6 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: East Carolina -4 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: Central Florida

UCF went 0-12 last year.  Ten of their losses came by two touchdowns or more, as they should have – George O’Leary’s final season was a complete disaster.  That included a late November 44-7 home loss at the hands of East Carolina.  That was then, this is now. 

First-year head coach Scott Frost has made it very clear what he wants to install for the Golden Knights.  The former Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator wants to become “Oregon of the East."  Frost found his starting quarterback two weeks ago when previous starter Justin Holman got hurt.  In two games behind center, frosh McKenzie Milton; a dual threat dynamo against both Maryland and FIU. 

Here’s Frost’s quote: “One of the things that drew me to the job is I knew I could run a version of our offense that was practically identical to Oregon's because we Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Wake Forest Demon Deacons at NC State Wolfpack

Wake Forest at NC State
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT
CRIS Opener:
NC State -9 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: NC State -11 O/U 48.5
Recommendation: Under

On a perfect 3-0 run with the ACC free play involving the Pittsburgh Panthers, I’ll shift away and tap into an Atlantic Division contest. Situational edge here goes to the Wolfpack which enter the game off of a bye week. Last season NC State had the same bye week situation and won 35-17 in Winston Salem. That could be where the similarities end because at this juncture of the season, the fundamentals in this matchup look a bit different.

In their late October meeting last season, NC State running back Matt Dayes ran wild scoring two touchdowns of 50+ yards and gaining 205 overall. Dayes and the NC State ground game have had a strong start to this season (210.7 ypg) but the Wake Forest run defense has been a rock allowing just 88.5 rypg and 2.7 per carry. What has been vulnerable is the Demon Deacons pass defense which has yielded an average of 414 ypg in contests versus Duke and Indiana. Wake Forest’s other two games were Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Illinois Fighting Illini at Nebraska Cornhuskers

Illinois at Nebraska
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - BTN
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -21 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Nebraska -21 O/U 54
Recommendation: Nebraska

It's homecoming Weekend in Lincoln as the Nebraska Cornhuskers play host to Illinois. Nebraska improved to 4-0 after a 24-13 victory at Northwestern last week. With the win, Nebraska entered the AP ranking at No. 20 for the first time since the end of the 2014 season. Quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. had a monster game, picking up a 379 total yards while running back Terell Newby chipped in 69 yards and a touchdown.

Illinois is coming off a bye week after dropping a 34-10 decision to Western Michigan. The Broncos outrushed the Illini by a whopping 287-3 margin. Despite efforts in the first two games to spark their rushing attack, Lovie Smith's squad attempted 43 passes compared to 10 rushes due to playing from behind the entire game. Smith clearly has his work cut out for him moving forward. In blowout losses to North Carolina and Western Michigan, the Illini were outgained 899-624 (7.3 ypp-4.8 ypp). It's not a positive sign considering the Illini Read more

College Football Gambling: Texas' offense on the upswing but defense regressing

09.28.2016     09:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Live by the tempo, die by the tempo. Texas has finally made good on its word to pick up the pace offensively. The Longhorns are averaging 83.7 plays and 44.6 points per game. The defense however doesn't look built to handle the extra possessions. Notre Dame hung 47 in Week 1 and Cal topped it in its 50-43 win over UT two weeks ago. In three games, the Longhorns have only one takeaway. Following the bye week, head coach Charlie Strong vowed to be more involved in the defensive game plan. Also note that the offensive numbers may be a bit skewed considering the competition. Notre Dame has been so awful defensively it fired its defensive coordinator. UTEP somehow allowed 66 points at home to Army. And Cal has one of the worst power conference top units in the country.


“I need to be involved and we need to have those meetings,” Strong said. “It was just so key and so important that we just sat down [for] just a self evaluation. Look at yourself … check your ego at the door. Some guys, you’re going to get your feelings hurt, but

College Football Gambling: Auburn's offense continue to struggle

09.28.2016     09:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you've watched Auburn play, you're well aware that the offense has absolutely no identity. Quarterback Sean White is a serviceable passer but can't run which severely limits the playbook. John Franklin offers a wildcat option but it's so obvious opposing teams have little trouble stopping it. And in a new development, Gus Malzahn has reportedly relinquished play calling duties to offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee. It's almost as if Malzahn is trying to distance himself from a sinking ship. In three games against Clemson, Texas A&M, and LSU, War Eagle failed to top 20 points. 


“I have been really leaning towards that for about two weeks now,” Malzahn said. “I turned it over to him and I thought he did a fantastic job. I need to be the head coach and that’s what I am going to be. I am looking forward to Rhett building this offense.”

“We need to score more touchdowns," Malzahn said. "That’s it. When we have opportunities to catch them, we’ve got to catch

College Football Handicapping: Penn State defense hammered by injuries

09.28.2016     09:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Couple injuries of note for Saturday's Minnesota-Penn State game. Golden Gophers defensive end Tai'yon Devers is reportedly out (Sports Options lists him as questionable). Devers has three of the team's nine sacks this season. Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions are down to a stop sign and two lawn chairs at linebacker. The unit was exposed and some against Michigan as the Wolverines rushed for 326 yards. Three weeks ago, Pitt rushed for 341 yards. Penn State is currently a -3 home favorite.


"In my 22 years of doing this, I've never been a part of a team that's lost all three of our starting linebackers," Franklin said. "I've been around teams that have lost this guy for a game or lost this guy for two games or lost this guy maybe for a season, but to lose all of them for a significant amount of time at the same time, I've never been a part of that."

NFL Handicapping: Buffalo Bills make adjustments under new OC

09.28.2016     08:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A week removed from the firing of offensive coordinator/scapegoat Greg Roman, the Buffalo Bills hung 33 points in a must-win over Arizona. Really good article on the changes made by new OC Anthony Lynn. One difference was the offense's tempo which was sped up at different occasions during the game. Overall, Buffalo still only had 297 totals yards on 61 plays. They remain the slowest paced team in the league based on plays per game (53).


“There was rhythm, it’s pace,” said Incognito. “Those plays are coming in really quick and we’re getting in and out of the huddle and it helps pick up first downs. When you’re physical and you pick up first downs and you’re not in third and long, it kind of changes the make of the ball game. And when you’re scoring touchdowns that helps as well.”

“The way we mixed in our no huddle was definitely beneficial with the touchdown that Shady had off the trap,” said Taylor. “That was a big one
