NFL Handicapping: Wild Card road teams feature experienced quarterbacks

01.05.2016     10:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the storylines for this weekend's NFL Wild Card round is quarterback postseason starts. As mentioned by Teddy Covers on Monday's Sportsmemo Podcast, the four road teams feature signal callers that have combined for 37 career playoff starts. Ben Roethlisberger has made 15 postseason starts with a 10-5 record. Russell Wilson has made eight (6-2). Aaron Rodgers has made 11 (6-5). And Alex SMith has made three starts (1-2); two with San Francisco and one with Kansas City.

On the flip side, all four home teams have quarterbacks who have never made a postseason start with Houston's Brian Hoyer, Cincinnati's AJ McCarron, Minnesota's Teddy Bridgewater, and Washington's Kirk Cousins. With the exception of McCarron (three career starts), Hoyer, Bridgewater, and Cousins have combined for 79 career starts but again, none took place in the postseason.

Using Strength of Schedule to Handicap the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs

01.05.2016     07:57 AM     Printer Friendly
The theory is actually quite simple; since 2002, teams with a higher Strength of Schedule (using Sagarin’s Ratings) are a remarkable 37-15 straight up and 37-14-1 against the spread (73% winners) regardless of price and location. Even more amazing is that teams with a SOS differential of 10 or more went 23-4 SU, 22-4-1 ATS (85% winners). Taking it step further, teams with a better SOS that are underdogs went 15-11 SU, 19-6 ATS. Underdogs with a SOS rating of 10 or better went 9-4 SU and 10-3 ATS. This is not a perfect science when it comes to grading plays. For example, two years ago, the Colts opened -2.5 but closed +2. The 49ers also closed -3.5 at a number of shops which would have resulted in an ATS loss. That said, with 13 years of results, this is one of the strongest publically known NFL trends available.

In 2002 the NFL expanded to its current format of 32 teams; eight divisions with four teams each. There wasn’t much upheaval as the league added the Houston Texans to the AFC and Seattle switched to the NFC. Two new divisions were created as the league kept the integrity of the established divisional rivalries pretty Read more

NFL Gambing Preview: Detroit Lions at Chicgo Bears

01.01.2016     08:36 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Chicago -1.5 O/U 46.5
CRIS Current: Chicago -1 O/U 46
Recommendtion: Detroit

The Lions are 5-2 since their 1-7 start.  Two of their losses were complete screw jobs. Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary pass to beat them following a tough penalty call on the previous play was brutal.  So was their loss at Seattle, with a dubious non-call at the goal line in the final seconds on Monday Night Football.  Overall, Detroit is a better team than their record would indicate.  That’s not the case for the Bears.
 
Detroit has gotten much, much better since offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was fired mid-season, replaced by Jim Bob Cooter.  It’s surely worth noting that Matthew Stafford has a 16-2 TD-INT ratio and a 108.7 QB rating since Cooter took over, in sharp contrast to his 13-11 TD-INT ratio and his 84.1 QB rating under Lombardi.
 
The Lions have won on the road at Green Bay and New Orleans; a veteran team capable of taking care of business in hostile environments.  And frankly, I’m not Read more

NFL Handicapping: Who will or won't rest starters for Week 17?

12.29.2015     12:18 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Resting starters is one of the biggest handicapping angles of Week 17 as a majority of the league is either out of the playoffs or locked into their respective seed. Here's a few articles we came across discussing the matter.

Philadelphia says it will prepare and play like any other game.

Kansas City hints that it may rest some guys.

Carolina is reportedly going all out to clinch the NFC's top seed.

Washington has yet to decide on its game plan in regards to playing time.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Narrowing down the Super Bowl 50 contenders

12.28.2015     08:43 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This is my last Wiseguy Report of the year.  That leaves me with two choices – a look back column or a look forward one. I’m a big fan of post-mortems following every NFL betting week; looking to learn from both winners and losers.  But when it comes to looking back over a whole season or a full year?  It’s harder (for me at least) to learn lessons in the aggregate; much easier when I condense those lessons down to individual games. 

After all, that’s what a season is – dozens of individual betting decisions; made one at a time.  So, while I’ve enjoyed one of the best NFL seasons of my handicapping career, there’s no point in looking back.

Sure, we can identify the worst beat of the year, that’s always fun.  I’d nominate anyone who had Lions and Under when they led Green Bay wire-to-wire on Thursday Night Football….until Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary touchdown pass with no time left on the clock that turned Lions and Under into Packers and Over.  Apologies to anyone who had St Louis plus the points at Green Bay in Week 5, a close second on my list.  But the better way Read more
