College Basketball Betting Free Play: Utah State Aggies at Colorado State Rams

Utah State at Colorado State -4.5 O/U 134
Recommendation: Colorado State

Utah State’s next win and cover on the Mountain West highway will be their first.  The Aggies are 0-5 SU, 0-5 ATS in their first five conference road games, struggling in unfamiliar venues after rolling through the depleted WAC in recent years.

And the Aggies have gotten worse in recent road tilts, losing their last two contests by a combined 37 points at UNLV and Wyoming. Yes, Utah State snapped their five game skid with a 2-0 home stand, but their wins (Nevada and Boise) both came against slumping foes.

Colorado State certainly isn’t slumping right now – they’re coming into tonight’s game off two of their best efforts of the year, blowing out UNLV on this floor and beating Air Force by double digits in Colorado Springs.  The Rams have been taking care of business on their home floor – their only two losses in Ft Collins since November both came against Mountain West elites (San Diego State and New Mexico).  At 4-7 in conference play, Utah State is a long way from being an elite MWC squad.

College Basketball Handicapping: Nevada travels to UNLV

01.08.2014     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Battle of the Silver State goes tonight with Nevada taking on rival UNLV in Las Vegas. The Wolf Pack have been up and down this season but are off to a 2-0 start in Mountain West play. It coincided with the eligibility of forward AJ West who scored 27 points and grabbed 21 rebounds combined in both victories. Nevada is also slated to return Marqueze Coleman who can provide relief to Deonte Burton – Burton is no. 1 in the country in percentage of minutes used. UNLV, who is off a home loss to Air Force – its fourth home loss of the season – has won eight straight in the series but Nevada has covered three of the last four.

“I’m not sure how long it’s been since we won there,” Wolf Pack point guard Deonte Burton said (answer: the Wolf Pack last won at UNLV in November 2005). “It would be big for the program, it would be big for the fans and it would Read more

College Football Betting: Northern Illinois still irked by poor D vs. Bowling Green

Utah State vs. Northern Illinois -1.5 O/U 58

Northern Illinois picked a bad time for a defensive letdown as Bowling Green racked up 574 yards (8.57 ypp) in the Falcons' 47-27 win in the MAC Championship. The Huskies are calling for a better defensive showing in their upcoming Poinsettia Bowl matchup against Utah State.

"We want to get out there and prove we're better than that," linebacker Michael Santacaterina said. "That would be a long offseason ending (without a win)."

"Communication breakdowns between the secondary and linebackers and linebackers to the D-line," Santacaterina said. "We had mental breakdowns, assignment breakdowns."

USC vs. Fresno State
Las Vegas Bowl
December 21, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
USC -4.5 O/U 62
CRIS Current: USC -6 O/U 63
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -5.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: USC -3.5 1st half

When the bowl pairings were announced a couple of Sundays ago, this matchup was one where the motivational angle of each team was questioned. Fresno State went from BCS buster three weeks ago to this late December, mid-afternoon appearance while the Trojans received this bid on the heels of the resignation of beloved interim head coach Ed Orgeron. To have the early handicapping concern that this game may be anti-climactic for both of these teams was legitimate but all signs currently point to Fresno State and USC having regrouped and now focused on this game.

For the Bulldogs, record setting senior quarterback Derek Carr quoted the team mantra heading into this contest Read more

College Football Gambling Update: Snow and cold temps for Potato Bowl

Buffalo vs. San Diego State pk O/U 53

Last week we blogged about San Diego State's inexperience in cold weather. The Aztecs are currently in Boise and some of the players noted that they are seeing snow for the first time. There is snow in the forecast for Friday and Saturday. Game temps are slated for the high 30's but wind does not expect to be a factor.

“There was quite a bit of snow on the side of the field, and I had three kids tell me, ‘Coach, that’s the first time I’ve ever seen snow,’” Aztecs coach Rocky Long said. “When it gets to be 50, they think

CRIS Opener:

CRIS Current: San Diego State pk O/U 53
Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Diego State -0.5

An interesting MAC vs. Mountain West matchup will take place on the blue turf in Boise when the Buffalo Bulls (8-4) face the San Diego State Aztecs (7-5). Buffalo was a surprise this season jumping from a dismal 4-8 in 2012 to 8-4. This will mark the program’s second-ever bowl appearance – they lost to UConn by 18 in 2009. Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn’s quote indicates that his team is very excited for this opportunity:

“It's been four years in the making. We talked about setting our goals towards being a football program that has a November and December tradition. And to be invited to a bowl game when we knew there were more bowl eligible Read more

Heart of Dallas Betting Preview: UNLV Rebels vs. North Texas Mean Green

UNLV vs. North Texas
Heart of Dallas Bowl - Dallas, Texas
Wednesday, January 1, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
North Texas -6.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: North Texas -6.5 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: North Texas -6.5

Two nice storylines in this matchup as North Texas and UNLV end their respective postseason droughts with berths in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. For North Texas the accomplishment is even sweeter by playing right down the road in the Cotton Bowl. UNLV meanwhile broke through with a 7-win campaign – a monumental accomplishment for a program that had won two games in six of its last eight seasons. While the Cotton Bowl won't be packed to the gills, motivation for both sides won't be an issue.

From a power rating perspective, Sagarin has North Texas a raw -7. It doesn't look as if oddsmakers are giving much of any home field advantage to the Mean Green. According to Sagarin, NT ranks 69th Read more

College Football Gambling: San Diego State doesn't have much cold weather experience

Buffalo -2.5 at San Diego State O/U 54

San Diego State talks about its preparation for the likelihood of cold weather at next Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. According to one article, SDSU's 27-20 win at Air Force earlier this season was its coldest (49 degrees) game since 2009. Temperatures at last year's Potato Bowl were fairly mild (low 40's/high 30's). The current 10-day forecast (which has little to no accuracy) has game day temps in the high 20's.

College Football Handicapping: USC focuses on Las Vegas Bowl

12.11.2013     01:54 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Some quotes following one of USC's recent practices. The focus was on getting over the departure of Ed Orgeron and trying to avoid another Sun Bowl disaster. The Trojans play Fresno State in the Las Vegas Bowl and week from Saturday.

"We can't underestimate no team," said defensive captain Hayes Pullard.  "We have to go in there and prepare like we are second place and play like we are first place."

"We have a goal," said interim head coach Clay Helton. "Any time you have faced the adversity that they have faced and you are going to get the opportunity to get your 10th win, that's pretty special.  That's what their ultimate goal is."

"I feel like the emotions have died," said DL George Uko.  "He was like a dad to us as a d-line and became a dad to the rest of them over the eight weeks, so it was a sad loss."
