College Football Handicapping: Michigan State starts youth movement

11.16.2016     10:08 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
About that time of year where teams outside of bowl contention start looking towards 2017. It's been a rough season for Michigan State but the Spartans finally got their first Big Ten win of the season last week, 49-0 over Rutgers. In that game, Sparty played a ton of first-year players, including three freshmen starters on defense. The team seems to have embraced the "youth movement" but it'll be interesting to see how they hold up this weekend against Ohio State.


"We talked about this being a starting point for us to build from and take the momentum into next year," Barnett said. "Let's finish these last three games out strong, and our guys started out right. So let's see if we can keep it going."

"We've got a lot of young guys out there playing," senior tight end Josiah Price said. "Today, Trishton made a huge play for us to keep the momentum going. I don't know if Trishton would have made that play Week 4, Week 5 or something like that. But he's grown. All our

College Football Handicapping: Michigan's Harbaugh says status of Speight still unknown

11.15.2016     10:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is playing coy when it comes to the status of starting quarterback Wilton Speight. Despite reports indicating Speight has a broken collarbone, Harbaugh said he's "questionable" for Saturday's game against Indiana. It's reasonable to think we'll see John O'Korn under center. O'Korn put up big numbers (3,117 yards, 28 TDs) for Houston back in 2014 and has seen time during Michigan's numerous blowout victories.


"I never really get into (that) talk, I'm not a doctor. I'd hate to be the third person talking about these things," Harbaugh said on the Big Ten teleconference Tuesday. "He remains questionable for Saturday and we'll reevaluate after that."

"All the quarterbacks were really playing well in the fall (camp) and I think all of our quarterbacks have continued good play, improving play (each week)," Harbaugh said Tuesday. "Wilton's more obvious for you and the public and opponents because he's been playing in games. But you've seen John and Shane in games as

NFL Handicapping: Tennessee Titans continue to trend OVER the total

11.14.2016     08:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After seven straight overs, oddsmakers have had little choice but to adjust Tennessee's totals. The Titans' last five game have averaged a Big XII-esque 64.4 ppg. Note that Week 7's total vs. Indianapolis closed 48. Sunday's second meeting opened 53.5. That's the highest total for a Tennessee game since 2004. Dating back to last season the Titans are on a 12-3 run to the over.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadephia 76ers at Indiana Pacers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Philadelphia +11.5 at Indiana O/U 210
Recommendation: Philadelphia


Indiana has no business as double digit chalk right now, even against the worst team in the NBA.  Don’t listen to my word – let Paul George tell you himself: “We’re all out of whack. There’s no trust, there’s no chemistry, there’s no belief. We’re kind of just lifeless right now.”

This team bought into Frank Vogel’s message throughout his tenure as Indiana’s head coach.  The first few weeks of the Nate McMillan era hasn’t produced anywhere near that same level of internal chemistry.  McMillan is trying to cobble together cohesive rotations following an offseason of significant personnel turnover, with a new point guard in Jeff Teague, a new starting wing in Thaddeus Young, and a new top scorer off the bench in Al Jefferson, among others. 

The betting markets recognized those names; guys with a recent track history of success elsewhere, and have been convinced that the Pacers are primed to be a team on the rise.  But those big name veterans aren’t playing a lick of Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan Wolverines at Iowa Hawkeyes

Michigan at Iowa
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -17.5 O/U 50
CRIS Current: Michigan -22 O/U 51.5
Recommendation: First half over

The Michigan first half over train continues as last week the Wolverines jumped out to a 35-0 half time lead over Maryland. And it's not just first halves as Michigan is also 7-2 O/U from a full game perspective. And if you're worried Jim Harbaugh may let off the pedal at some point, don't. In the win over the Terps, UM scored two fourth quarter touchdowns; the last of which via the pass with three minutes remaining. This week's opponent, Iowa, serves as yet another opportunity to step on a neck.

Iowa's schedule has been laughable in terms of opposing offenses. Miami-Ohio, Rutgers, and Wisconsin all rank 101st or worse in total offense. Iowa State, Minnesota, and Northwestern check in at 89th, 83rd, and 96th respectively. The two "top" offenses the Hawkeyes faced were Purdue (58th) and Penn State (59th). And in those two games, Iowa allowed 76 points and 7.3 yards per play. Michigan of course is significantly better offensively that those Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Washington Huskies at California Golden Bears

Washington at California
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Washington -15.5 O/U 77.5
CRIS Current: Washington -17 O/U 76.5
Recommendation: California

There was a time, earlier in my handicapping career when I was fixated on taking strong defensive underdogs in college football; teams that could cover pointspreads without having to put up touchdowns in bunches. But that era of college football ended (without much fan fare from the betting markets), with the advent of the high octane spread offense, like the one Sonny Dykes is running at Cal these days. 

In the football universe circa 2016, my entire thought process involving bigger underdogs has flipped from where it was 15 years ago.  In the modern world, I want my underdogs to be able to score early and often, even if they are defensively weak.  Teams that can put up points in bunches tend to be live underdogs, capable of trading points OR coming through the backdoor should they struggle early.

Underdogs of seven points or more are 4-1 ATS in Cal games this year, with the Bears unable to cover bigger Read more

College Football Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars at UL-Monroe Warhawks

South Alabama at UL-Monroe
Saturday, 2 pm PT
CRIS Opener:
South Alabama -13 O/U 54
CRIS Current: South Alabama -13 O/U 50.5
Recommendation: South Alabama

The South Alabama Jaguars won their first Sun Belt game of the season this past weekend with a hard-fought 13-10 triumph over Georgia State. They now take on a reeling UL-Monroe squad that profiles as a prime fade candidate down the stretch.

ULM is without their starting quarterback, Garrett Smith, who is out for the season with a knee injury. That leaves redshirt freshman Will Collins in charge of the offense. Since Collins took over, ULM was blown out at New Mexico and against Arkansas State. In the two games without Smith ULM has yet to top 165 yards passing. The Warhawks have had success at times running the football but it’s more volume than effectiveness with 190 ypg but only 4.1 ypc vs. the Sun Belt.

South Alabama has been a tough handicap all year long. This is a team who went into Starkville and knocked off Mississippi State and also beat one of the best teams in the Mountain West Conference in San Diego State. On the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Ohio State Buckeyes

Nebraska at Ohio State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -13.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Ohio State -17 O/U 51.5
Recommendation: Ohio State

Ohio State knows that its only chance to get into the College Football Playoffs is to beat Michigan in the regular season finale. But before the Buckeyes get there, they must face Nebraska and then back-to-back road games at Maryland and Michigan State. As bettors, we don't pay a lot of attention to the Playoff Rankings but it's hard not to notice how generous they are towards the Big Ten with five teams in the top 12. One of those teams is Nebraska (10th) who somehow checks in ahead of Florida, LSU, Oklahoma and a few others they'd assuredly be an underdog to on a neutral field. So while Ohio State has its eye on November 26, this is an opportunity to beat a "quality" foe.

Following their loss to Penn State, the Buckeyes limped past Northwestern 24-20. They never trailed but the box score was very even. It was a classic "letdown" spot as OSU never sniffed a pointspread cover as -26 favorites. Note that OSU opened that game Read more

Maryland at Michigan
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -30.5 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Michigan -31 O/U 54
Recommendation: First Half Over

Another week, another first half over for the Michigan Wolverines as they jumped out to a 27-10 lead over Michigan State. On the season, Michigan has outscored its opponents 229-38 in the first half and a more modest 144-55 in the second half. Below are the halftime scores of UM's eight games.

Michigan's First Half Scores
vs. Hawaii - 35-0
vs. UCF - 34-7
vs. Colorado - 24-21
vs. Penn State - 28-0
vs. Wisconsin - 7-0
at Rutgers - 43-0
vs. Illinois - 31-0
at Michigan State - 27-10

Under the watch of Jim Harbaugh, the Wolverines have excelled at a lot of things this season, most notably beating up on the weak. Wisconsin, and its ninth-ranked defense, was the only team to put up any real type of resistance against this offense. This week sets up well for another lopsided halftime score with Maryland headed to the Big House. Since holding Purdue to 205 total yards, the Terps have Read more

Washington State at Oregon State
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Washington State -15.5 O/U 65.5
CRIS Current: Washington State -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Oregon State

My clients and I cashed in betting against Washington State as road chalk last week in a closer-than-expected non-covering win at Arizona State.  And there’s absolutely no reason to think that the Cougs are being priced appropriately as double-digit road favorites as they travel to Corvallis on Saturday night.

This is the wrong price range for Washington State in a very hostile road environment.  It’s also the wrong pointspread range for an Oregon State team that has been getting killed on the highway, but consistently playing competitive football at Reser Stadium.

There’s been one very consistent facet of Mike Leach coached teams, dating back to his tenure at Texas Tech – they have letdowns, not a coach who’s prone to guiding his team to extended winning streaks.  In his fifth season at Washington State, the Cougars current five game winning streak is the longest Read more
