College Football Betting Preview: Appalachian State Mountaineers at Tennessee Volunteers

Appalachian State at Tennessee
Thursday, 4:30 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -22.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Tennessee -21 O/U 59
Recommendation: Tennessee

This will mark the third year in a row the Tennessee Volunteers play a strong mid-major to open the season and thus far, Butch Jones has made sure the Vols passed each test. In 2014, UT beat a 10-win Utah State team 38-7 and last season, cruised past high-powered Bowling Green, 59-30. Last year’s Sun Belt runners-up return 15 starters are a co-betting favorites with Arkansas State to win the conference title. Many think this will be a breakout year for Tennessee as the Vols are currently priced at -125 chalk to win the SEC East and the third betting choice (+420) to win the SEC championship.

Jones’ offense features two incredible playmakers in senior quarterback Joshua Dobbs and junior running back Jalen Hurd. Add to it a strong offensive line as well as talented depth at the skill positions and we have reason to believe the Vols will be able to move the ball with ease. And while Appalachian State will have edges on Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Oklahoma Sooners at Houston Cougars

Oklahoma at Houston
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -10 O/U 66
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -11.5 O/U 68
Recommendation: Over

My initial gut reaction here was to take a long, hard look at taking Houston plus the points.  The Cougars were no joke last year, finishing the season 13-1 following a resounding win over Florida State in the Peach Bowl.  Their lone loss came by a field goal on a cold, rainy November day at Connecticut when QB Greg Ward was sidelined for most of the game.

But after a thorough examination of the Houston defense, I think the Over is the superior play.  Houston is capable of putting points on the scoreboard, even against a quality defense like Oklahoma’s.  Head Coach Tom Hermann, who signed a contract extension to stay at Houston in the offseason, is the guy who designed an offense for third string QB Cardale Jones to hang 42 on Alabama and 42 more on Oregon when Ohio State pulled off back-to-back upsets to win the National Title back in 2014.  Last year, he took an unknown, unheralded former wide receiver in Greg Ward, and turned Read more

BYU vs. Arizona (Glendale)
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Arizona pk O/U 63
CRIS Current: Arizona -1 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Under

Major changes going on at BYU with longtime head coach Bronco Mendenhall headed to Virginia and former Oregon State DC Kalani Sitake handed the reigns. Also new will be offensive coordinator TY Detmer who takes over for Robert Anae who followed Mendenhall to Charlottesville. Detmer has never coached at the collegiate level and plans to implement a more pro style approach compared to the spread, up-tempo attack ran under Anae. The move is interesting because it doesn't necessarily fit the skill set of veteran quarterback Taysom Hill who as we all know is ultra-dangerous using his feet. However, it may give Hill a better chance to stay healthy after missing time due to injury each of the last two seasons. Either way, the plan is to be more deliberate as stated by backup quarterback Koy Detmer Jr.

“Last year, we were trying to go real fast and catch the defense off-guard, trying to score a lot of points and get a lot of plays,” said backup Read more

College Football Betting Preview: San Jose Spartans at Tulsa Golden Hurricane

San Jose State at Tulsa
Saturday, 4 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
Tulsa -6 O/U 63.5
CRIS Current: Tulsa -5 O/U 70
Recommendation: Tulsa

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane enter the second year of the Philip Montgomery regime and I think this team is poised for improvement following a 6-7 campaign. This program was a disaster area during Bill Blankenship’s tenure but Montgomery, in just his first year on the job, took the team from 2-10 to a bowl game berth. Senior quarterback Dane Evans is back to lead what should be a very good offense. Evans posted a 63% completion rate with 25 TDs and just 8 INTs and should be even better in 2016. The offensive line has four returning starters and they have plenty of playmakers at the skill positions to put up points in bunches. Tulsa is in need of improvement on defense which was their biggest issue last season. They return seven starters including four of their top five tacklers. The Golden Hurricane will no doubt be better against the run after getting carved up for 240 ypg. The d-line returns three starters and everyone starting along that unit is either a junior or Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Bowling Green Falcons at Ohio State Buckeyes

Bowling Green at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -26 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Ohio State -28 O/U 64
Recommendation: Ohio State

The season kicks off in Columbus on Saturday morning as Ohio State hosts fellow in-state foe Bowling Green. The Buckeyes are looking to return back to the College Football Playoff after falling a field goal short of an undefeated regular season thanks to Michigan State. Urban Meyer's recruiting prowess is the key factor as to why many believe OSU is still one of the top contenders this season. The Buckeyes return only six starters on both sides of the ball but with tons of talented five-star freshman and many sophomores and juniors who know the systems well, this team should be able to pick up right where they've left off.

Bowling Green has a ton of changes heading into the year starting with first-year head coach Mike Jinks who was a top-tier prep coach for many years in Texas. He was part of Texas Tech's staff last season under Kliff Kingsbury. His familiarity with spread offenses will fit this up-tempo ball club that scored 591 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. Boston College Eagles

Georgia Tech vs. Boston College (Ireland)
Saturday, 4:30 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Georgia Tech -3 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Georgia Tech -3 O/U 44
Recommendation: Over

ACC opener for each of these teams right off the bat and only thing that could make the stakes higher is if it were a divisional game. The offseason brought change at each of the coordinator posts for Boston College and a renewed sense of urgency and determination for Georgia Tech. It is practically impossible to project and plus or minus for either team due to the international travel situation but the Yellow Jackets have indicated that they view this as the bowl game they did not play in last season. It’s doubtful though after reading player quotes that they’ll get so caught up in the trip that they’ll lose focus.

Boston College does get a huge advantage here by being able to prepare for the Georgia Tech option attack for the last six months. The Eagles did lose defensive coordinator Don Brown (Michigan DC) who last season directed them to national rankings of first in total Defense, second in rush Read more

College Football Betting: UNLV names transfer Stanton starting quarterback

08.29.2016     09:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UNLV named former Nebraska/JC transfer Johnny Stanton its Week 1 starting quarterback against FCS Jackson State. Head coach said that backup Kurt Palandech will also see time. Stanton is billed as a drop back passer whereas Palandech, who played in 11 games last season (49%, 9 TDs, 5 INTs), has more ability with his feet (293 yards rushing).


“It’s one of those deals that if you need to let it play itself out and wait, then you wait,” he said after the Aug. 19 scrimmage. “You don’t rush the decision, because the decision’s going to have a major impact on the season.

“I’ll be honest with you … both guys are going to play in Game 1. I think one guy’s going to be named the starter, and he’ll start to get the majority of the reps. But you’re going to see whoever the No. 2 is at some point in the first half.”
