NCAAF Betting Notes: Cincinnati's Collaros may return for Liberty Bowl

Cincinnati vs. Vanderbilt -2.5 O/U 48.5

Looks like there is a chance Cincinnati quarterback Zach Collaros will play in the Liberty Bowl against Vanderbilt. Collaros broke his ankle back in mid-November but may start to practice this week. Collaros' replacement, Munchie Legaux, was performed adequately the final three games of the season but wasn‘t much of a passer (108.9 QB rating). We would imagine Collaros would be given every chance to return but facing a tough Vanderbilt defense on a bum ankle may not be a good thing. The Commodores ranked 19th nationally in total defense (324 ypg allowed) and recorded 24 sacks.


"That is still a possibility that he'll play in the bowl game," Jones said. "He's taken tremendous strides in the rehabilitation effort. He's about two weeks ahead of

College Football Betting Notes: Five-win Vanderbilt favored at Wake Forest

Vanderbilt -1.5 at Wake Forest O/U 49.5

Interesting situation with Vanderbilt (5-6) vying for a bowl berth but favored on the road following a disheartening overtime loss to in-state rival Tennessee. Wake Forest has already hit the six-win plateau but claims this week's game is just as important as any other. The Demon Deacons won last year's meeting in Nashville, 34-13.


"Nobody likes to lose, especially the way that we did," defensive tackle Rob Lohr said. "We have to bounce back, get it back this week and make it to a bowl game. It's definitely a one-game season. We have to be ready."

“That’s the thing we can’t do (is act relieved to get to

NCAAF Gambling Notes: UT's Bray upgraded to probable, Vanderbilt favored by -1.5

Vanderbilt -1.5 at Tennessee O/U 44.5

According to reports, Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray (broken thumb) will suit up Saturday against Vanderbilt. In the five games without Bray, Tennessee's passing game produced 174.2 ypg, 1 TD and 6 INTs – three of those contests were against LSU, Alabama and South Carolina though. Bray unquestionably gives the Vols a better chance to move the football, assuming he is close to 100% and not playing out of desperation. You notice in the quotes below that OC Jim Chaney used terms like "rust", "rusty" and "worry". The key to this game however may have nothing to do with throwing the football but instead the ground games. According to our ACCU-Stats (see below), Vanderbilt is over a yard better at running and stopping the run – a massive advantage for a team favored by less than a field Read more

College Basketball Free Play: Oregon Ducks at Vanderbilt Commodores

Oregon +12.5 at Vanderbilt O/U 149
Recommendation: Oregon


The Oregon program had a long, steady decline throughout the back end of the Ernie Kent era.  However, it didn’t take Dana Altman long to change the basketball culture in Eugene.  A Ducks team that was picked to finish dead last in the conference prior to the season instead finished with seven conference victories.  They got an invite to the postseason CBI tournament and went on to win the whole thing.  Then, over the summer the team was buoyed by the addition of star Oakland guard Jabari Brown and a trio of transfers (from Minnesota, Wake Forest and Louisiana Tech) two of whom are immediately eligible. They enjoyed a wildly successful summer trip to Italy; a deep, confident team as they travel to Nashville for their season opener.

College Football Line Moves: Bettors pound Florida against pesky Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt at Florida -13.5 O/U 44.5

The betting markets have been all over Florida for its home tilt against Vanderbilt this weekend. CRIS opened the Gators -9.5 but the line has shot up to -13.5 (-14 at Pinnacle). Oddsmakers have made a sizable adjustment on the Commodores who closed as a 13.5-point home underdog against Georgia. The following week they crushed Army as an 11.5-point favorite and then nearly upset Arkansas as an 8-point underdog. Florida beat Vanderbilt 55-14 as 14-point favorites in last year's meeting in Nashville but we’re now dealing with two completely different teams. The Gators (4-4) are on a 0-4 SU/ATS run and in danger of not making the postseason. The Commodores (4-4) are closing in on a bowl berth with winnable games against Kentucky, Tennessee and Wake Forest remaining. The secret to Vandy's success has been a surprisingly effective defense. They rank a respectable sixth in the SEC in yards per game allowed (331.9). The offense has Read more

Arkansas -15.5 at Mississippi O/U 56.5
Arkansas faces its old coach, Houston Nutt, this week after a bye last week. The Razorbacks face an Ole Miss offense that has yet to score more than one touchdown in a conference game. Last week the Rebels scored on their opening possession against Alabama and then failed to threaten the rest of the game in a 52-7 loss. Ole Miss is averaging just 186 yards per game in SEC play with nine turnovers in the three games. Arkansas hasn’t played since whipping Auburn 38-14 at home two weeks ago. The Hogs should have too much firepower for the Rebels here.

College Football Betting: Georgia in potential letdown spot vs. Vanderbilt

Georgia -11 at Vanderbilt O/U 41

Nearly left for dead after an 0-2 start, Georgia has rebounded in a big way with four straight wins and currently sits tied atop the SEC East standings at 3-1. The story for the Bulldogs has been defense as the unit ranks 12th in rushing (85.8 ypg), 11th in passing (174.7) and sixth in total defense (260.5 ypg).

Based on how Vanderbilt looked the last two weeks (three points in two games), the Bulldogs should have no trouble getting the job done in Nashville. However, I can't help but think this is a potentially dangerous situation for the double-digit favorite. Back-to-back road games can be tough on anyone and with a bye week upcoming (followed by a rivalry tilt vs. Florida), this could be a flat spot. Not to mention, a game against Vanderbilt doesn't spark a lot of excitement, especially Read more

NCAAF Handicapping: Vanderbilt Commodores at South Carolina Gamecocks

Vanderbilt at South Carolina (4 pm PT – ESPN2)
CRIS Opening Line: South Carolina -15 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current Line: South Carolina -16 O/U 50
Rob Veno Power Rating: South Carolina -19
Teddy Covers Power Rating: South Carolina -19.5

Brent Crow’s Betting Take: Both teams enter 3-0 but you’ll likely find two completely different levels of satisfaction. Vanderbilt is absolutely thrilled with its start under first-year head coach James Franklin – even if the wins came against FBS Elon and two sub-par BCS teams, UConn and Ole Miss. At Vandy, 3-0 is 3-0, and the confidence among the coaches and players is soaring. On the other hand, South Carolina has been very sloppy in its three wins over East Carolina, Georgia and Navy. They’ve yet to play a full four quarters because of mistakes and squander Read more

Something very unique happened in Nashville this past Saturday. Vanderbilt, a perennial SEC doormat, spent most of the second half killing clock in a blowout win over a conference foe.  I’ve got meticulous records that date back to my first football season in Las Vegas in 1998.  During that 14-year span, the Commodores had exactly one SEC win by more than two touchdowns.  That win came in 2004 against a Mississippi State team that finished the season with a 3-8 record.  They did not have a single SEC win by more than three touchdowns…until this past Saturday.  Now 3-0 SU, and 3-0 ATS, James Franklin’s first year in Nashville is already a major success!

Cornerback Trey Wilson was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week, picking off two passes against the Rebels; returning one for his second defensive touchdown of the year.  Sophomore Wesley Johnson was switched from left tackle to center this past offseason.  That move paid off when he won the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week award for his performance against Ole Read more

College Football Gambling: Seven teams take to the road for the first time

This week there are seven teams making their first road trip of the season and in each case there are some difficult hurdles to overcome.

Arkansas +11.5 @ Alabama – Tough two-game stretch for the Hogs who have this revenge game followed by a neutral site game (@ Arlington, TX) with revenge seeking Texas A&M (Arkansas won 24-17 in Cowboys Stadium last year).

Florida -19.5 @ Kentucky – Sure Kentucky has been abysmal on offense this season but with a  home game on deck against Alabama and a road game at LSU the following week, the Gators’ focus for this Saturday could be questioned.

Florida State -1.5 @ Clemson – The ACC Atlantic Division Read more
