College Football Handicapping: West Virginia Mountaineers Season O/U Wins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sportsmemo's newest handicapper, Paul Stone, has posted a College Football Season Over/Under Wins Report that includes six recommendations and written analysis. You can purchase Paul's report for only $99. The report will be included for free with purchase of Stone’s August/September CFB ($299) or Full Season ($999). Below is a free recommendation.

West Virginia UNDER 4.5 (-120 at Heritage, -135 at Bookmaker)

Prior to becoming the main man on campus in Morgantown in 2011, Dana Holgorsen gained a deserved reputation as an offensive guru during stops at Texas Tech, Houston and Oklahoma State. Suffice it to say, things have not gone as planned in his first three years as the Mountaineers' gridiron CEO. After going 15-3 in his first season and a half, Holgorsen's troops have sputtered and stumbled to a 6-14 mark over their past 20 games, with few reasons for optimism during 2014. Over the past two seasons, a porous West Virginia defense has given up an average of 40.5 points per game in conference play, while the offense has been unable to replace the likes of departed star Read more

College Football Handicapping: The impact returning experience has on the betting markets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Expanding on yesterday’s Sportsmemo Podcast discussion on the impact Phil Steele continues to have on the early season college football betting markets. We took the top 10 most and least experienced teams according to Steele’s Combined Experience Chart and looked at their Week 1 lines moves based on CRIS’s opening and current numbers. Not surprisingly a majority of the “experienced” teams with boarded Week 1 games were bet whereas the “least experienced” teams were bet against.

Top 10 Most Experienced Teams - Week 1
UTSA: +12.5 to +11 at Houston
UL-Lafayette: Non-boarded vs. Southern
Indiana: Non-boarded vs. Indiana State
Central Michigan: Non-boarded vs. UT-Chattanooga
Mississippi State: -29 to -31 vs. Southern Miss
Auburn: -21.5 vs. Arkansas (-21 or -20.5 at other offshore shops)
Houston: -12.5 to -11 vs. UTSA
Idaho: +34.5 to +35.5 at Florida
Maryland: Non-boarded vs. James Madison
Army: Bye Week

College Football Betting: Marshall's defense should dominate foes

08.13.2014     06:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We spoke on Tuesday's podcast about Marshall's improvement on the defensive end last year under defensive coordinator Chuck Heater. The Thundering Herd went from 103rd to 35th in terms of total defense. This year's group returns eight starters and will have the luxury of facing one of the easiest schedules in the country - particularly from an offensive perspective. Below are some quick offensive notes on MU's opponents this season. Marshall is a 24-point road favorite vs. Miami-Ohio for Week 1.

Miami-Ohio - 124th total offense LY
Rhode Island - Ranked 206th Sagarin LY, two spots ahead of EMU
Ohio - Only 3 returning starters on offense, lost senior QB
Akron - 108th total offense LY
Old Dominion - First year FBS
MTSU - Only 4 returning starters on offense, lost senior QB
FIU - Worst offense in the nation LY
Florida Atlantic - 83rd total offense LY, new head coach/system
Southern Miss - 116th total offense Read more

College Football Gambling: Alabama focused on stopping up-tempo offenses

08.12.2014     08:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Alabama talks about better preparing for up-tempo offenses. The cause for concern - at least from the media's perspective - was the infamous Texas A&M game in which the Aggies rolled up 628 yards (and still lost, 49-42). Outside of that, the Crimson Tide were still a top five stop unit. UA opponents ran the second fewest plays per game (61.8) in the nation last season.


"There's a lot of ways to improve on that whether it's being in shape, cutting weight, play more snaps, play more people," Smart said. "So you've got to have more depth. There's a lot of things we can do to hopefully improve on that and try to play those style of offenses better."

"You know, in all honesty, guys, you all make way too much of this," Saban said. "I mean, the last game (Auburn) had 21 points against us with 30 seconds to go in the game, and I don't think anybody held them to 21 points all year long. I saw them score 60 in the SEC Championship Game or whatever."

College Football Betting: Wake Forest goes with true frosh QB

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wake Forest first-year head coach Dave Clawson announced that true freshman John Wolford will be the team's Week 1 starting quarterback. The Demon Deacons are currently 2.5-point road favorites vs. UL-Monroe.


“John Wolford is going to be our starting quarterback,’’ Clawson said. “We made that decision (Monday) after watching the tape of (Sunday’s) scrimmage.

“Not just last night in the scrimmage, but consistently through camp he has executed the offense at the highest level. And I think he gives us our best opportunity to win football games.’’

College Football Betting: Young Tulsa offense starts from scratch

08.06.2014     06:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tulsa took one of the biggest nosedives of any team in college football last season; 11-3 in 2012 to 3-9.  During the offseason, the Golden Hurricane fired offensive coordinator Greg Peterson and kept thing in-house by promoting offensive line coach Denver Johnson. The offense will be pretty green with only one senior in the starting lineup. Sophomore Dane Evan is expected to start at quarterback after completing 43% of his passes to go with a 4-10 TD-to-INT ratio in eight games.


"Our offense was dysfunctional," coach Bill Blankenship said Monday at the team's media day event. "By the end of the season we were pitiful. We felt like we had to retool our offense."

College Football Handicapping: Iowa in search of big plays in 2014

08.06.2014     06:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Iowa's offense made strides last year, increasing 66.5 yards per game from 2012. But offensive coordinator Greg Davis is asking for a lot more, particularly when it comes to picking up big chunks of yards. Last season Iowa had only 45 plays from scrimmage that went for 20 yards or more (102nd nationally).


“I always want to see more production,” he said, noting that the unit should improve if only because “they’re much more comfortable [with the system].”

“You hope [improvement] happens, that’s the biggest thing,” starting quarterback Jake Rudock said. “We have a lot of guys coming back, which I think is helpful. And I think it allows for the ability to potentially do more.”

College Football Gambling: Utah on its sixth OC in six years

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Utah is in search of more stability on offense after spending the last few years with banged up quarterbacks and a host of different offensive coordinators. Former Wyoming head coach Dave Christensen will be the Utes' sixth OC in six years. Travis Wilson (16 TDs, 16 INTs) is expected to be the team's starting quarterback.


"We feel good about our situation at quarterback," Whittingham said. "Travis Wilson obviously has the upper hand with his experience the last two years, but he will be challenged by Oklahoma transfer Kendal Thompson along with the other contenders."

"He brings a new feel to our team," Anderson said. "It's good for us. It's a very high-tempo offense that we're running, and it's really not that different from what we've been doing."

College Football Handicapping: Arizona to tweak offense following personnel losses

08.01.2014     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two articles on Arizona and head coach Rich Rodriguez. The first, courtesy of Sports Illustrated, talks about UA's offensive system and the potential switch from run-heavy to a more balanced attack with workhorse running back Ka’Deem Carey gone. But if Arizona is going to utilize the passing game more it'll be with a new quarterback and as of now, Rich Rod has no clue who that will be.


“The receiving crew last year, with Austin getting hurt and playing all those freshmen, we were really nervous about that,” Rodriguez said. ‘We like to play at least seven or eight [receivers] in every game. And we thought, oh my gosh, those true freshmen with Nate Phillips, Samajie Grant, and Trey Griffey really played pretty well. Now those guys are back a year older with some other guys that sat out and we’re going to be so much deeper there that we’ll be able to play seven or
