Bettor didn't hedge on Auburn to win BCS Championship ticket

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The dude who bet $100 on Auburn to win the BCS Championship at 500-1 odds reportedly didn't hedge his bet and instead let it ride. According to Pinnacle's in-game odds, at its peak, Auburn was -7.5 (or roughly -325). Following the Tigers' go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter, they were priced at -200.


"I regret nothing," Skiba said after the game. "At the end if the day, I was playing with house money for the last two months. This was not supposed to happen in so many ways. It's the whole experience and the story. That's what I will remember.

"It was a bit of a life-changing experience just from the exposure standpoint and tonight it definitely peaked."

BCS Championship Betting Recap: Florida State wins but Auburn gets the cash

Great game! You probably watched. No need to rehash the play-by-play. Let’s see what the numbers say about the evening…

Florida State 34, Auburn (+11) 31

Florida State: 385 yards, 5.8 per-play, 1 turnovers, 17% third downs

Auburn : 462 yards, 5.8 per-play, 1 turnovers, 56% third downs

Other Numbers

Florida State: 148 rush, 20-35-0-237 passing, 17 drive points, 24 stat score, 20 sloppiness

Auburn: 232 rush, 14-27-1-230 passing, 17 drive points, 31 stat score, 18 sloppiness

Auburn got the best of it when it was offense vs. defense, which was a big surprise. In fact, they scored exactly what they were supposed to based on stat score (2 times rushing, plus passing, times 0.67, divided by 15). Florida State’s kickoff return TD saved the day for the Seminoles. Throw that in, and stat score becomes a 31-all tie in a game that ended 34-31.

Auburn jumped to a 21-3 lead against a seemingly Read more

College Football Betting: Florida State steamed up to -10.5 for tonight's BCS Championship

Auburn vs. Florida State -10.5 O/U 68

You knew that the pointspread on tonight's BCS National Championship was going to move at some point with most sportsbooks sitting in that “dead number” range of 8/8.5 since early December. Over the course of the last 24 hours, Florida State appears to be the more attractive of the two sides according to the betting markets. The Seminoles have climbed to as high as -10.5 while the total has clicked up to 68 after an opener of 65. Yet despite the line move, Bookmaker is reporting that 65.5% of bets have been place on Auburn.

College Football Gambling: South Carolina irked about underdog status vs. Wisconsin

Wisconsin -2 vs. South Carolina O/U 51

Looks like South Carolina got word it's an underdog to a Big Ten squad.


"I was a little surprised," Badgers linebacker Chris Borland said this week. "We're confident that we're going to win. It's just this huge SEC bias out there that they're a great conference, which they are. But, yeah, I was surprised."

"I don't want to sound like a cocky type of guy, but I just kind of take it as a slap in the face," Sutton said this week. "We as a team collectively, we work hard and we bust our butts at practice every day and listen to what the coaches tell us to do. For us to be the highly ranked team coming into this game and be labeled as the underdog, we kind of take it as a slap in the face as a team

Outback Bowl Betting Preview: Iowa Hawkeyes vs. LSU Tigers

Iowa vs LSU
Outback Bowl - Tampa, Fla.
Wednesday, 10 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
LSU -7 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: LSU -7.5 O/U 49
Rob Veno's Power Rating: LSU -10
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: LSU

Kirk Ferentz has always had a tough time recruiting top notch talent to play in Iowa City for the Hawkeyes, and it hasn’t gotten easier as the Hawkeyes have fallen into mediocrity (or worse) in recent seasons.  Iowa hasn’t won more than eight games in a season since 2009.

This year they lost all three of their step-up-in-class games this year by double digit margins; blasted by Ohio State, Michigan State and Wisconsin.  Their problem is plain and simple – talent, or the lack thereof; good enough to beat up on the dregs of the Big 10, but not good enough to compete with the elites.

And make no mistake about it – LSU is elite, even with frosh QB Anthony Jennings Read more

College Football Handicapping: With new OC, Texas A&M may play faster

Duke vs. Texas A&M -12 O/U 75

Something to note for tonight's Chick-fil-A matchups between Texas A&M and Duke. The Aggies made a switch at offensive coordinator with Jake Spavital slated to call plays for the first time this season. Reports suggest that with Spavital on the sideline, the team may play at an even faster tempo. Tread carefully though as the total has already moved five points to the over.


"I believe that we might play at a faster pace just due to communication of cutting out the middleman, going from the press box to me to Johnny, which is now just a direct communication from me to Johnny." It is a point Manziel agrees with saying, "I think they will just come in quicker, hopefully get in more

College Football Gambling: Rice wants physical game vs. Mississippi State

Mississippi State -7 vs. Rice O/U 50.5

Some pretty good quotes from Rice regarding today's Liberty Bowl matchup vs. Mississippi State. The Owls quietly transformed into a more physical, defensive-minded squad this season and it resulted in double-digit wins and a C-USA title.


"I don't mind saying that those shootouts that you see in Conference USA and even in the major conferences to be honest, aren't any fun for us to be involved in," Rice senior linebacker Michael Kutzler said. "Whether you win or lose those as a defensive player, you leave a shootout feeling really bad about yourself."

"I'm sure their fans look at us and think we're just a small, unathletic school from Conference USA," Rice safety Paul Porras said. "I don't see why we can't match up well with any team in the country in the trenches. We've won 10

Chick-fil-A Bowl Betting Preview: Duke Blue Devils vs. Texas A&M Aggies

Duke vs. Texas A&M
Chick-fil-A Bowl - Atlanta, Ga.
Tuesday, 5 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Texas A&M -11.5 O/U 70
CRIS Current: Texas A&M -12 O/U 75.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Texas A&M -14

The Chick-fil-A-Bowl really does have a David vs. Goliath kind of feel to it. This was a magical season for the Duke Blue Devils who exceeded expectations throughout as they won eight games in a row to close out the regular season en route to an ACC Atlantic Division title and ACC Championship Game appearance. Duke posted victories over three ACC bowl bound teams: Virginia Tech, Miami (FL) and North Carolina but saw its winning streak come to an end in the ACC title game with an unsurprising 45-7 loss to top ranked Florida State.

Duke will be in for a stiff challenge against Johnny Football and the Texas A&M Aggies but they have the offensive components to hang around. Junior quarterback Anthony Read more

Sun Bowl Betting Preview: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. UCLA Bruins

Virginia Tech at UCLA
Sun Bowl - El Paso, Texas
Tuesday, 11 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -7.5 O/U 47
CRIS Currrent: UCLA -7 O/U 47
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UCLA -7.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: 1st half UNDER 23.5

Unlike last year’s Sun Bowl where USC was immediately pegged by bettors as a team with zero interest in playing the game, this matchup figures to draw each team’s best effort. The motivation here for UCLA is a 10-win season which would be their first under the direction of head coach Jim Mora Jr. He immensely helped the Bruins’ focus and continuity for this game and beyond by signing a six-year contract extension just a couple of weeks ago. UCLA has exhibited an extreme upbeat attitude since arriving in El Paso. For Virginia Tech, the extra practice sessions and game are being taken seriously as a springboard toward a return to their former status as an ACC Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: How to bet College Football Bowl Games Part II

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I wrote an article in this space prior to bowl season (link) detailing my personal strategies for turning a profit during these three weeks of high stakes affairs.  But as I do my research for the upcoming games, I continue to find a bevy of outdated information widely available on the internet; strategies that haven’t worked in years, yet they’ve become a part of the gambling lexicon. 

I did a national radio spot last week with a well-known host.  He brought up three strategies as the sharp Vegas method.  None of them work.  In fact, none of them have worked in years. I don’t think the host was an idiot – there’s just a bevy of bad information out there!

So my goal for this week’s column is to poke holes in the outdated information.  The betting markets are not a static entity; always morphing and evolving.  What worked five, ten or twenty years ago doesn’t necessarily work as 2013 shifts to 2014.  And when it Read more
