College Football Betting News: Clemson's win over Alabama crushed the books

01.11.2017     10:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Clemson's win over Alabama was not an ideal outcome for Las Vegas sportsbooks.

 

“It was definitely our worst college football game ever, and I’m pretty sure it was our biggest loss in a single game,” William Hill sports book director Nick Bogdanovich said.

“It’s the highest single-game handle I’ve ever seen, which proves that college is catching up,” veteran South Point oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said. “It keeps telling me I’ve been wrong for 20 years saying that we can’t get much better and we can’t write more tickets. The public keeps telling me, ‘Jimmy, go sit down. You’re wrong.’

“The intriguing thing to me was we wrote more on that game than we did on the first NFL game of the weekend.”

Arizona Bowl Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars vs. Air Force Falcons

12.29.2016     12:36 PM     Drew Martin     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
South Alabama vs. Air Force
Arizona Bowl - Tucson
Friday, 2:30 pm PT
CRIS Opener:
Air Force -12.5 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: Air Force -13.5 O/U 58
Recommendation: Over

Air Force’s the triple option offense closed the regular season hitting on all cylinders as it averaged 366.6 ypg on the ground during a five-game winning streak. South Alabama’s offense enjoyed similar late season success. Over the Jaguars’ last four games, the offense averaged 224.8 ypg on the ground and 259.8 ypg through the air. In looking at this matchup, both offenses should maintain their current form in what has the potential to be a high-scoring affair.

One interesting dynamic to this handicap is the health and status of Air Force quarterback Nate Romine who remains listed as questionable. I mentioned earlier how potent the Falcons’ offense had been during their five-game win streak. Well, much of the damage was courtesy of backup Arion Worthman who as a sophomore appears to the be the future of the AFA offense. Regardless of who starts, both quarterbacks are capable of making the offense hum, Read more

Alamo Bowl Betting Preview: Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Colorado Buffaloes

12.28.2016     10:47 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oklahoma State vs. Colorado
Alamo Bowl - San Antonio
Thursday, 6 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Colorado -2.5 O/U 64
CRIS Current: Colorado -3 O/U 62.5
Recommendation: Oklahoma State

Let me start by giving Colorado credit, before I make the case for betting against the Buffs in the Alamo Bowl.  The Buffs had gone 11-38 SU over the previous four seasons heading into the 2016 campaign.  Their last bowl appearance came back in 2007 against Alabama, in Nick Saban’s first year on the job with the Crimson Tide. But head coach Mike MacIntyre – the architect of a significant program turnaround at San Jose State – did it again with the Buffs this season, guiding Colorado to a 10-3 record, both SU and ATS.  That 10-3 ATS mark was tied for the second best pointspread record in the country – for most of the season Colorado was an undervalued commodity.

That being said, no Colorado player has been to a bowl game before.  MacIntyre deserves serious ‘Coach of the Year’ consideration, but the biggest bowl game he’s coached at the collegiate level Read more

Russell Athletic Bowl Betting Preview: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Miami Hurricanes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
West Virginia vs. Miami (FL)
Russell Athletic Bowl - Orlando
Wednesday, 2:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Miami -1.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Miami -3 O/U 58.5
Recommendation: West Virginia

Four straight wins, four straight losses, followed by four straight wins is how the season went for the Miami Hurricanes. And the formula was simple: When the Canes won, they covered, and when they lost they didn't. Bettors are likely to focus on the last four contests that saw Miami dominate with wins by 19, 14, 20 and 23. The competition wasn't elite but beating NC State on the road 27-13 and easily dispatching Pittsburgh 51-28 again shows this was a quality football team. And most of Miami's losses were nothing to sneer with one score defeats at the hands of Notre Dame, North Carolina and Florida State. The only "bad" loss came at Virginia Tech on a short week. Statistically, Miami outgained ACC opponents by exactly a yard per play and held a healthy +8 turnover advantage.

West Virginia posted 10 wins and a 7-2 record in Big XII play. Like Miami, the Mountaineers don't do anything Read more

Texas Bowl Betting Preview: Kansas State Wildcats vs. Texas A&M Aggies

12.27.2016     01:07 PM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas State vs. Texas A&M
Texas Bowl - Houston
Wednesday, 6 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Texas A&M -2.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Texas A&M -2.5 O/U 57
Recommendation: Under

It's nearly impossible to get involved in a track meet or two playing in the Big XII. Kansas State was the slowest paced team in the league but when given the chance, the Wildcats were able to move the ball and put up big scores. KSU beat Baylor 42-21, Texas Tech 44-38, and lost to Oklahoma State 43-37. Those three teams however were three of the four worst in the Big XII in terms of yards per game allowed in conference play. And despite those three "big" offensive outputs, the Wildcats still averaged less than 400 ypg of total offense and 5.5 ypp in league play.

Texas A&M's defensive numbers aren't strong when compared to some of the elite teams of the SEC but this is still a capable stop unit. In fact, heading into October, the Aggies looked more than capable having held UCLA, Auburn, South Carolina and Arkansas to 19.3 ppg. A&M also held Tennessee to 14 points for three and a half quarters Read more

Military Bowl Betting Preview: Wake Forest Demon Deacons vs. Temple Owls

Wake Forest vs. Temple
Military Bowl
Tuesday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Temple -13 O/U 42.5
CRIS Current: Temple -10 O/U 41.5
Recommendation: Temple

Defense is the anchor for each of these teams who rank in the Top 20 in scoring defense. Temple’s numbers all around are slightly better but the Demon Deacons have been very strong against a more difficult schedule. My power ratings show Temple to have a 33.5 average opponent rating while Wake Forest’s schedule shows their opponents averaged 42.5. It’s interesting to break this game down and try to assess how much the strength of schedule difference negates the defensive statistical difference. The other side of the ball shows a glaring difference between the potency of these offenses. After stumbling a bit in their first two games, Temple has gone on to average 430.2 in their last 11 contests. Conversely, Wake Forest only gained over 400 yards of offense one time all season and that game was against FCS Delaware which went 4-7 this season. The Deacons were 125th out of 128 FBS teams in Total Offense this Read more
