College Football Handicapping: CRIS vs. Power Ratings Week 10

10.29.2014     02:24 PM     Printer Friendly
Sportsmemo Handicapper Rob Veno has been creating his own Power Ratings for nearly two decades. His numbers are very well respected and an excellent tool for discovering value. Rob’s PRs are a baseline and do not include key injuries or situations but they also don't overreact as much as the betting markets do week to week. Below is a chart of CRIS's current lines and Rob's College Football Power Ratings for Week 10.

College Football Betting Preview: Maryland Terrapins at Penn State Nittany Lions

10.29.2014     08:07 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Maryland at Penn State
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Penn State -3 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Penn State -4 O/U 47.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Penn State -4.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Maryland

Not sure what to expect from Penn State following three straight losses including last week's double overtime heartbreaker against Ohio State. The Nittany Lions have now dropped three straight and with each passing week, their lack of offense and depth is being exposed more and more. After losing a pair of seniors to season-ending injuries, PSU is down to a startling 46 scholarship players. The current NCAA guidelines allow teams to have as many 85. Defensively, they've been able to hold up, but it's doubtful they'll be able to match their numbers the rest of the regular season. Offensively, the offensive line is extremely weak with no run-game to speak of (46 ypg vs. Big Ten). It leaves Read more

College Football Gambling: Louisville finally faces top-tier quarterback

10.29.2014     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Louisville's defense has put up some sick numbers this season: 14.6 ppg, 245.8 ypg, and 3.91 ypp. But it'll be interesting to see how this stop unit fares against an elite quarterback. The Cardinals have faced an extremely favorable schedule quarterback-wise with a host of young and inexperienced signal callers. On Thursday, they face former Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston.

Week 1 - Miami's Brad Kaaya was making his first-ever collegiate start on the road.

Week 2 - FCS Opponent

Week 3 - Virginia sophomore Greyson Lambert sports a QB Rating of 112.0; good for 13th in the ACC.

Week 4 - Florida International's quarterbacks own the 113th ranked QB Rating nationally.

Week 5 - Wake Forest's quarterbacks own the 117th ranked QB Rating nationally.

Week 6 - Before getting injured, Syracuse's Terrel Hunt had a 1-4 TD-to-INT ratio and 110.9 QB Rating.

Week 7 - Clemson's Deshaun Watson left the game early with an injury. His replacement, Cole Stoudt, has a QB Rating of 115.17. Read more

College Football Gambling: Another head coach surprised by a pointspread

10.28.2014     02:39 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Count us as fans of Florida Atlantic head coach Charlie Partridge who has his Owls a respectable 6-2 against the spread.


“We were more surprised by the point spread. We were surprised we were 28-point underdogs, and a lot less surprised we played them even for three quarters. And a lot less surprised it went the (way) it went.”

College Football Betting: How to approach against the spread outliers

10.28.2014     08:42 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The college football betting markets are usually pretty good at eventually making adjustments on teams who over- or underachieve against the spread. At the end of the season, a majority of the college football landscape is within two games of .500 against the spread. There are obviously exceptions to that rule but being able to spot change with some of the current "outliers" can lead to profits. Let's take a look at some of them and decipher whether or not their ATS results will differ the remainder of the campaign.

Underachievers
Florida State (1-6 ATS)
- Because of last year's success, media coverage, and undefeated record, there hasn't been much of any pointspread adjustment on the Seminoles since the start of the regular season (the Golden Nugget GOY lines had them priced WAY too high). As a result, there remains a strong anti-FSU sediment in the markets. They opened -7 at Louisville for Thursday and were immediately bet down to as low as -4.

SMU (1-6 ATS) - In order to be a successful bettor, it's important to keep a "no team is off limits" mindset. It's difficult however with truly bottom feeder Read more

College Football Gambling: Betting markets all over Virginia Tech fade

10.28.2014     07:40 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on Virginia Tech's recent struggles. The betting markets have faded the Hokies hard each of their last two games. Against Pitt, Tech opened -3 but closed -1. Last week, Tech opened -3 vs. Miami but closed +2.5. This week, more of the same with Tech opening -5 vs. Boston College and bet down to -3.


“Sometimes you get hammered like we did in our last ballgame and you go look at the tape and the tape’s not very good,” Beamer said to begin his opening statement. “But I didn’t feel that was the case with this football team.”

College Football Handicapping: BYU's Mendenhall relinquishes defensive play calling

10.28.2014     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Prior to last week, BYU's defense was allowing less than 5 yards per play. Last week however, head coach Bronco Mendenhall decided to step in and call plays and it backfired in the worst way. The Cougars allowed 55 points, 630 yards, and 8.06 ypp in their loss at Boise State. Mendenhall is now giving back the play calling duties to defensive coordinator Nick Howell as the team travels to Middle Tennessee State.


“What I plan to do is just support all of our coaches the best way that I can,” Mendenhall explained. “One of the next steps for our program to really grow and develop is to continue to increase the capacity of the coaches on my staff. I’ll certainly be an aid not only to Coach Howell but to (offensive coordinator Robert) Anae and I’ll help any way that I can to make sure the plans are exactly how they’re supposed to be.”

College Football Handicapping: Week 10 early line moves

10.27.2014     01:37 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at some of the early moves in the Week 10 college football betting markets.

Florida State at Louisville
CRIS Opener: Florida State -7
CRIS Current: Florida State -4
Comment: Cardinals currently boast nation's top total defense. Seminoles (1-6 ATS) come in off of a bye week.

Boston College at Virginia Tech
CRIS Opener: Virginia Tech -5
CRIS Current: Virginia Tech -3
Comment: Market can't get enough of betting against the Hokies. Last week's massive move from -3 to +3 proved to be right as Tech was embarrassed at home against Miami.

North Carolina at Miami (FL)
CRIS Opener: Miami -11
CRIS Current: Miami -16
Comment: Markets not buying another Tar Heels second half run (6-1 SU/ATS L7 2013) following wins over Georgia Tech and Virginia.

BYU at MTSU
CRIS Opener: BYU -7
CRIS Current: BYU -5
Comment: Cougars’ season all but over after four straight losses; the last of which by 25 at Boise State. Great spot for Blue Raiders with bye weeks bookending a “big name” foe.

USC at Read more
