NCAA Tournament Handicapping: North Carolina Tar Heels favored to win title

03.27.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
And then there were four. This weekend's Final Four matchups are set with South Carolina taking on Gonzaga and Oregon squaring off against North Carolina. The Tar Heels are +150 to win the title followed by Gonzaga (+170), Oregon (+475) and South Carolina (+875).

The remaining three games will take place at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. It's obviously a massive structure that will be modified to accommodate the small playing field compared to football. There hasn't been a lot of high profile basketball played at the venue. The only one we came across was the 2009 NCAA Tournament Regional. Here's a bunch of photos that show the layout.

A Pefect Match: Gambling and the Super Bowl

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among one of the staunchest opponents of legalized gambling. Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming ‘Illegal Internet Gambling Prohibition Act’ attached to the Port Security Bill. The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that its enormous popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable. The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers. From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deal that pumps more than three billion dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the. NFL owners are among the richest men in the world; franchises are bought and sold for more than half a billion dollars. However, the league’s humble origins were anything but the extravagant bonanza that is the NFL today. Read more

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
Submitted by Drew Martin

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

12.28.2016     10:43 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly

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
