NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Baltimore vs. Jacksonville
Sunday, 6:30 am PT -
CRIS Opener: Baltimore -4 O/U 40.5
CRIS Current: Baltimore -4 O/U 39
Recommendation: Jacksonville

Joe Flacco missed all of preseason; one of many injured veterans for the Ravens in August. Baltimore lost nearly a dozen guys to IR in training camp, losing key bodies on both sides of the football. Flacco has looked rusty, with only 338 passing yards through two games. And he hasn’t been tested – the ravens have not yet trailed this season. The Ravens, as a team, have only one explosive play on offense through two games. They’ve rushed for under four yards per carry. And now the key to their offensive line, six time pro bowler Marshall Yanda, has been placed on injured reserve after breaking his ankle last week.

Yanda’s injury cannot be overstated. With him gone, this team is now without three of their five OL starters from last year, as well as their top two backups from a season ago. This would be a problem for any offense. It matters even more with a QB and skill position talent Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders at Houston Cougars

Texas Tech at Houston
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener: Houston -5.5 O/U 69
CRIS Current: Houston -6.5 O/U 71
Recommendation: Over

Texas Tech’s offense once again looks fully capable of scoring points in bunches despite losing quarterback and 1st round draft pick Patrick Mahomes. Texas Tech’s new starter, Nic Shimonek, is the latest in a long line of plug-and-play Air Raid system signal callers. Shimonek has absolutely flawless numbers through two games; 78% completions, 927 yards passing and a perfect 9-0 TD-to-INT ratio. He’s got a slew of skill position talent to work with; WR Keke Coutee has 17 catches for 285 yards and three scores while fellow receivers Dylan Cantrell and Cameron Batson each have 12 receptions. And running backs Desmon Nisby and Justin Stockton have combined for 196 yards and 2 TDs. I expect Tech to score its share of points but so should Houston against a Texas Tech defense that still refuses to put any stock into stopping the opposition. Case in point, last week, up 42-24 in the third quarter, the Red Raiders allowed Read more

College Football Betting Preview: UNLV Rebels at Ohio State Buckeyes

UNLV at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener: Ohio State -39.5 O/U 65
CRIS Current: Ohio State -40 O/U 64.5
Recommendation: Over

Eliminate for a second Ohio State's dismal offensive showing vs. Oklahoma in which the Buckeyes posted only 350 total yards and 16 points. Instead, turn your attention to Week 1 in which the Buckeyes rolled up nearly 600 yards and 49 points against Indiana. And last week as well as OSU hung 586 yards on only 69 plays in its win over Army. Bettors should feel confident moving forward that Ohio State's offense is only going to get better as first-year OC Kevin Wilson and Urban Meyer adjust to one another. In the meantime, this is still a top-tier offense, especially when facing lower-tier competition which is exactly what they'll see this weekend in UNLV.

The Rebels were not an especially strong defensive team a season ago even though the schedule came up very light in terms of opposing offenses. UNLV faced only three teams in the top 50 in total offense and in those three games it allowed 50 ppg. This season's Read more

College Football Betting: Navy defense makes changes in order to better compete vs. AAC

09.20.2017     09:29 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Interesting transformation underway with Navy's defense this season. Since joining the AAC in 2015, the Midshipmen and their bend-but-don't-break zone defense has had major issues stopping the pass. Last year, Navy ranked 123rd out of 128 in QB Rating defense. This year's unit is trying something completely new; man-to-man and getting after the quarterback. The sample size isn't big enough yet to determine how this significant change will play out. In Week 1, Florida Atlantic threw for 286 yards some of which in play-from-behind mode but was also picked off twice. That alone is a positive sign considering Navy posted only seven interceptions all of last season. In Week 2, the secondary didn't get much of any test playing Tulane's option. And this week, Cincinnati doesn't pose much of a threat with a team passer rating below 100. The real test starts in two weeks with a trip to Read more

NFL Gambling Update: Bengals hint run-game a focus moving forward

09.20.2017     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly

Bettors are probably wondering what Cincinnati's offense will look like following the firing of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. This article suggests the Bengals will be more committed to the run and less committed to asking Andy Dalton to win the game with his arm. Cinci is currently a +8.5 road underdog to Green Bay. The total is sitting at 44.5.

“In the past it’s been up and down,” Boling said.  “I definitely think to start the year out you play a team like Baltimore that might have one of the best run defenses in the league. But I think even in a situation like that you have to stay committed to it. You really just have to keep hammering whether it’s there or not. At some point you hope to bust one.”
