College Football Gambling: TCU tries to revamp pedestrian offense

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
TCU will attempt to spread out its offense more this year. Head coach Gary Patterson brought in co-offensive coordinators Doug Meacham (Houston) and Sonny Cumbie (Texas Tech). TCU ranked 9th in the Big XII in total offense last season (344.8 ypg).


"I feel we get to better utilize the speed and the size and the talent that we have at receivers and running back," said David Porter, who had a team-high five touchdown catches last season. "I feel it was a great change, transitioning into this new offense."

Betting College Football Totals: Identifying Late Season Opportunities

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Each year, the final third of the regular season features teams that finish on streaks. Those streaks are predominantly caused by one of three reasons: 1) a team is simply gassed and with no potential for post season play they let go of the rope, 2) they grow more cohesive, show incremental improvement and really hit their stride late in the year, or 3) the return or loss of key personnel due to injury creates great momentum or forces a team into a downward spiral. Here are four college football teams that appear to be headed for late season totals runs.    

Virginia – They’ve now played five consecutive overs due mostly to the erosion of their defense which has allowed at least 27 points in every game during the span and an average of 40.8. The offense has contributed to higher scoring games too as QB David Watford and the passing game has become a bit more dependable. Plenty of value has been given to over bettors in Cavs games as the last five have closed between 49 and 56. This week’s game versus North Carolina is currently inside that range again at 51. Not sure that the absence of Tar Heels’ quarterback Read more

College Football Handicapping: Oklahoma State seeks faster pace vs. TCU

TCU at Oklahoma State -7 O/U 50.5

Oklahoma State is looking to get back to its up-tempo ways against TCU. The Cowboys ran a rather pedestrian 65 plays against Kansas State and are averaging only 74.8 plays per game. They've also had difficulty moving the football: 5.3 yards per play vs. Mississippi State, West Virginia, and K-State.


“We lost three receivers for the last game, so it limited our ability to play fast,” Gundy said. “There are times in a game where we can move really quick, then based on matchups and what we think gives us the best chance to score points, it varies some from week to week.”

“We try to be as fast as we can in order to try to wear (an opponent’s) defense out and trying to disrupt their communication,” offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich said. “We have to

TCU at Oklahoma
Saturday, 4 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -10 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -9.5 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating:  TCU -11
Rob Veno's Recommendation: TCU

This would appear to be a difficult sandwich spot for Oklahoma. The Sooners are off of a convincing win and cover at Notre Dame and they have arch rival Texas on deck. Any letdown by OU against this TCU team figures to be harmful. Sooners quarterback Blake Bell has seemed to settle into the starting role quite comfortably over the last two games, directing the offense to 1,057 total yards and 79 points. Bell has sparked the passing attack by completing 73.1% of his passes (49-of-67) for 645 yards, six touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

On the ground, Oklahoma has averaged 203 yards per game on 4.72 per carry. The 86 rush attempts and 67 pass attempts show terrific play calling balance. The dual threat Bell had 22 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: SMU Mustangs at TCU Horned Frogs

SMU at TCU
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
TCU -19.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: TCU -19 O/U 51.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: TCU -14.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: TCU

If Texas A&M wanted to, it could have hung 60+ on SMU last weekend. Instead, the Aggies backed off late and won 42-13. This week, I don't think TCU has the ability to score at that type of rate but the Horned Frogs could offset that by putting up more resistance defensively.

TCU is off to a 1-2 start and has lost the services of quarterback Casey Pachall. Trevone Boykin is no doubt a tick down from Pachall but at home, off a bye week, and against a defense that has allowed 315.7 ypg passing, I expect him to have one of his better games.

Ever since Week 1's dismal showing against Texas Tech at home – in what should have been SMU's Game of the Year – I've been looking to fade this team. You have three key Read more

LSU vs. TCU
Marty Otto's Recommendation:
LSU
Saturday, 6 pm PT - ESPN (at Cowboys Stadium)
CRIS Opener:
LSU -3 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: LSU -4 O/U 50

This is one of the marquee games of college football’s opening week and it’s being played on a monster stage. It’s Saturday night, on ESPN primetime, at massive Cowboys Stadium. The Tigers currently find themselves as 4-point favorites and I wouldn’t expect them to go off at anything less than that number barring a major suspension or injury.

Coaching
Les Miles enters his ninth season as head coach at LSU. His teams have managed to win at least 10 games in each of the last three years and in six of his previous eight seasons. John Chavis remains as the defensive coordinator. Cam Cameron is the new offensive coordinator after a long stint in the NFL.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson has been at the helm for 13 years Read more

Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -9

Oklahoma State has some quarterback concerns entering Saturday’s Big XII showdown against TCU. Backup J.W. Walsh, who has been starting for injured starter Wes Lunt, is now out for the rest of the year with a knee injury. Walsh had played in six games and gone 102-of-154 passing for 1,467 yards and 10 touchdowns. Lunt is currently listed as probable to return for this game from his own injury but he still may not be quite at 100% yet.

TCU’s defense, while not being the same shutdown unit we’ve seen from previous Gary Patterson squads, still has better numbers across the board than Oklahoma State. TCU is 17th in the nation in total yards allowed at 313 per game and Read more

Baylor
Saturday, 4 pm - FSN
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -6 O/U 66.5
CRIS Current: Baylor -7 O/U 68
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baylor -4

Teddy Covers mentioned on today's Sportsmemo Podcast that TCU is prime fade material. I agree 100%. There's the suspension of quarterback Casey Pachall and an upcoming schedule that ranks among the toughest in the country (at Baylor, vs. Texas Tech, at Oklahoma State, at West Virginia, vs. Kansas State, at Texas, vs. Oklahoma). Even with Pachall, based on how the Horned Frogs have looked this season, two wins out of the group would be quite the accomplishment.

Some may point to last week's home loss to Iowa State as being a bit unlucky (TCU had five turnovers, and outgained the Cyclones by over 100 yards) but Read more

College Football Handicapping: TCU says offense will be more diverse with Boykin

Iowa State at TCU -7 O/U 41.5

According to TCU head coach Gary Patterson, the Horned Frogs will actually have "more offense" with quarterback Trevone Boykin under center. Prior to Casey Pachall's suspension, there was talk of working Boykin in at running back (12 carries, 122 yards). And while TCU is up against it having to prepare a rookie QB on short notice, the same can be said for Iowa State.


“We actually have more offense with Trevone Boykin in the game than we have with Casey Pachall in the game,” Patterson said. “[Pachall] can throw all the throws, but now you have a very athletic guy who can do a lot of other things that Casey can’t do.”

“In a lot of ways,
