College Football Gambling Trends: Close games highlight Navy-Air Force series

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Air Force at Navy -11 O/U 55

No question Air Force is down this season, especially defensively where they’ve steadily declined since the departure of defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter. But when it comes to rivalries among Military Academies, recent records and results are often irrelevant. The pointspread for Saturday's game is the highest it's been since 2003 and during that span only one contest was decided by double-digits.

2012: Navy (+9) 28 at Air Force 21 (OT)
2011: Air Force (+3) 35 at Navy 34 (OT)
2010: Air Force 14 vs. Navy (+10) 6
2009: Navy (-2.5) 16 vs. Air Force 13 (OT)
2008: Navy (+4.5) 33 at Air Force 27
2007: Navy (-2.5) 31 vs. Air Force 20 < biggest margin
2006: Navy (+2.5) 24 at Air Force 17
2005: Navy (+2) 27 vs. Air Force 24
2004: Navy (+1.5) 24 at Air Force 21
2003: Navy (+13.5) 25 vs. Air Force 25 < biggest pointspread

College Football Betting Preview: Kansas State Wildcats at Oklahoma State Cowboys

Kansas State at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN Game Plan
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma State -14 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Oklahoma State -14 O/U 59
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -11.5
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Kansas State

Oklahoma State comes in off of a disappointing loss last week at West Virginia. The Cowboys dropped a 30-21 decision to a team that had struggled mightily and suddenly OSU does not appear to be the Big XII favorites any more. When you examine their results prior to the West Virginia loss, there was really nothing that showed why Oklahoma State was ranked 11th in the country. They were very sloppy in a 21-3 win over Mississippi State in Week 1 then beat up on cupcakes UTSA and Lamar in their next two games.

This year’s Oklahoma State team is definitely not as potent offensively as it has been in years past, which is understandable Read more

College Football Betting: SEC News and Notes - Week 5

10.04.2013     07:24 AM     Alatex Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Alatex Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As expected, the best game of the week last week was the shootout between LSU and Georgia, with the Bulldogs coming out on top, 44-41. Aaron Murray picked apart the young LSU defense and Georgia’s defense was able to come up with the stop they needed on LSU’s final drive to preserve the win.

The other marquee game in the conference was lopsided as the Crimson Tide shut out Ole Miss 25-0. Bama’s defense looked much better than expected against the previously potent Ole Miss defense, shutting down Bo Wallace and the Rebels. It was the first time a Hugh Freeze coached team had ever been shutout.

I thought I would change things up in this week's column and look over the current national college football stats. In doing so, we find some interesting things going on in SEC land. Consider these numbers:

Arkansas is the highest ranked SEC rushing offense at 237 ypg, which is just 21st best in the nation.

Alabama is just 70th in the nation in rushing at 162.5 ypg, ahead of only Vanderbilt in the conference.

Texas A&M and Georgia are the only SEC teams ranked in the top 29 in the nation in passing offense, with the Aggies Read more

College Football Betting: Nebraska goes with redshirt frosh quarterback

Illinois at Nebraska -9 O/U 60.5

Bo Pelini announced that quarterback Taylor Martinez (turf toe) will not play Saturday against Illinois. The Cornhuskers will instead start redshirt frosh Tommy Armstrong who completed 12-of-15 passes for 169 yards two weeks ago against South Dakota State.


“We’ll start Tommy, Ronnie will be ready to go and Taylor will not play,” Pelini said.

“I’m not telling him he can’t play,” Pelini said. “Like I said, to be able to play and function in our offense — do what you have to do — he’s got to able to put his foot in the ground and feel comfortable doing that.”

TCU at Oklahoma
Saturday, 4 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -10 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -9.5 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating:  TCU -11
Rob Veno's Recommendation: TCU

This would appear to be a difficult sandwich spot for Oklahoma. The Sooners are off of a convincing win and cover at Notre Dame and they have arch rival Texas on deck. Any letdown by OU against this TCU team figures to be harmful. Sooners quarterback Blake Bell has seemed to settle into the starting role quite comfortably over the last two games, directing the offense to 1,057 total yards and 79 points. Bell has sparked the passing attack by completing 73.1% of his passes (49-of-67) for 645 yards, six touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

On the ground, Oklahoma has averaged 203 yards per game on 4.72 per carry. The 86 rush attempts and 67 pass attempts show terrific play calling balance. The dual threat Bell had 22 Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 6 Injury Report

10.02.2013     12:31 PM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas quarterback David Ash has been ruled ‘out’ of Thursday’s game at Iowa State due to lingering concussion symptoms. Ash sustained his first concussion in a 40-21 loss at BYU in Week 2. After sitting out a loss to Ole Miss, he returned to start in a 31-21 win over Kansas State. However, Ash suffered a second head injury against the Wildcats and didn’t return in the second half. This means Case McCoy will get the starting nod for the second time this season. Ash has seven touchdown passes compared to two interceptions this season, while McCoy has one TD pass and hasn’t been intercepted. Also, Texas’s best wide receiver, Mike Davis, is ‘questionable’ against the Cylcones. Davis sprained his ankle in the loss to Ole Miss and didn’t play against Kansas St. In the first three games, Davis had 20 receptions for 223 yards and four TDs.

Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen returned to the lineup in last week’s 45-33 loss to Texas A&M. Allen threw for 282 yards and three TDs against the Aggies, but he was picked off twice. The Razorbacks took the cash as 13.5-point home underdogs. Allen missed a 28-24 loss at Read more

NCAA Football Gambling: Ohio State content to milk clock late in games

Ohio State -7 at Northwestern O/U 60

Back when Jim Tressel was coaching Ohio State, second half bets on the under – especially when the Buckeyes had a big lead – were very profitable. We've seen some of that this year under Urban Meyer as OSU has little trouble putting up points in the first half but happy to take its foot off the pedal late in games. Against Wisconsin, Ohio State essentially shut down the offense and tried to milk the clock in the second half. It almost backfired as the Badgers had the ball down seven with over a minute to play. All told, in four games against FBS competition, OSU has scored 120 points in the first half and only 48 in the second half. That may change when/if games become more competitive but Meyer made it clear that it isn't about style points but rather wins.

College Football Handicapping: Colorado won't alter game plan vs. Oregon

Oregon -38.5 at Colorado O/U 69

Seems like Colorado head coach Mike MacIntyre is playing with fire by saying his team won't slow down the pace of this weekend's game against Oregon. He does have the right approach by trying to force the Ducks into longer drives, but a majority of those drives are going to result in points and by giving them more possessions – by playing faster offensively – you're asking for box scores like this one.


“I think you just got to do whatever you do best,” MacIntyre said. “If you try to change what you're going to try to do in a game … then you got to do what you do best and hope for the best.”

MacIntyre likes to play up-tempo offense. No one is better at that style of
