College Football Gambling: Big Ten Crossover Games

07.31.2017     08:54 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick breakdown of the Big Ten's scheduling partners. Last season, the conference moved to nine games which caused obvious home/road imbalance. The East Division received the 5 home/4 road split which the West Division will now enjoy this season. Out of the East's top contenders (Penn State, Michigan, and Ohio State), the Wolverines draw the most favorable crossover slate with easy wins at Purdue and vs. Minnesota. They do however travel to Madison the week prior to taking on Ohio State. Penn State must travel to Iowa and Northwestern while playing home vs. Nebraska. Ohio State gets cupcake Illinois at home but goes to Lincoln and Iowa City. In terms of the West's crossover SOS, we'll grade it on the following questions: Do you play Rutgers? How many games to you play against Michigan, Penn State, and Ohio State? By those parameters, Iowa caught no breaks with home games vs. OSU and PSU as well as a road trip to East Lansing. Illinois does travel to Columbus but the rebuilding Illini get winnable home games vs. the East's two weakest teams in Rutgers and Indiana. Similar situation for fellow bottom feeder Purdue with Michigan at home and both the Scarlet Knights and rival Read more

College Football Gambling: Ohio State expected to pick up tempo under OC Wilson

07.27.2017     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on the change in tempo expected to take place at Ohio State this season with former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson taking over as offensive coordinator.


“I think at times we got away from [tempo], and it’s part of who we are,” quarterback J.T. Barrett said Thursday.

“It’s not like you’re frantic,” he said. “It’s no different than playing up-tempo basketball. You still have to execute. You can’t throw it away. What you try to do is get in a rhythm and get the defense on their heels to get those guys maybe not doing as much, but you still have to execute.

“You don’t want to rush, but you want to go fast. It’s learning how to play within yourself at a reasonable tempo.”

College Football Handicapping: Illinois offense will lean on run-first quarterback

07.26.2017     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New quarterback and a new-look offense for Illinois this season as second year head coach Lovie Smith announced Chayce Crouch as the team's starting quarterback. Crouch has been with the program for four years, gone through three coaches and attempted only 65 passes. His claim to fame is an ability to run the football. Crouch racked up 137 yards on 17 carries in last year's loss (LOL!) to Purdue. Here's a good article on what bettors can expect from Illinois' offense this season including perhaps a faster tempo.


 In just over two quarters of play, Crouch was 10-for-14 passing for 142 yards to go along with 17 carries for 137 yards and two scores. He used his bulldozing style of running (with his 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame) to become Illinois' diet-diet-diet version of Tim Tebow for one afternoon in October.

After scoring just six points before Lunt's injury, the Illini tallied 25 points with Crouch at the helm and rushed for a staggering 315 yards as a team on the day. Crouch's, and

College Football Gambling: Ole Miss likely in for a world of hurt this season

07.25.2017     11:11 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
What a world we live in. Make one (accidental?) call to a hooker with a work issued phone and you're out of job. The question now becomes how bad does it get for Ole Miss? Let's not forget, the program was already banned from postseason play. There's also the issue of only 11 returning starters for a 5-win team that lost its final two games of the season to Vanderbilt and Mississippi State by a combined score of 93-37. Don't forget about transfers and bailing recruits. Now, it's nearly August and your head coach and offensive play caller is gone and you're forced to promote an offensive line coach to help stop the bleeding oh, and navigate the SEC West. Currently lined at 5.5 wins (5Dimes), it's not easy to come up with six wins despite being spotted two (one?) off Read more

College Football Betting News: Utah brings in new OC to spark stagnant offense

07.24.2017     10:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the constants for the Utah Utes program has been Kyle Whittingham who took over in 2005. Under his watch, the Utes are 104-50 including a stellar 10-1 in the postseason. The one inconsistency has been offense as the Utes ranked 11th of 12 in total offense in the PAC-12 five out of the last six years. Whittingham has tried out a lot of different offensive coordinators and schemes. He gave Norm Chow a shot as well as former quarterback Brian Johnson. Hell, even Dennis Erickson got a turn. This year, Whittingham is going with former high school and Eastern Washington coach Troy Taylor. In one season as EWU's passing game coordinator, the Eagles put up some sick numbers including 5,766 yards of total offense which was an FCS record. Since joining the PAC-12, Utah is 33-41-1 O/U. Perhaps this is the season the Utes produce better than average offensive numbers.

 

“I’m just big on trying a lot of different things," Taylor said. "If it works, great. If it doesn’t, there’s no harm
