Chick-fil-A Bowl Betting Preview: Clemson Tigers vs. LSU Tigers

Chick-Fil-A Bowl - Atlanta, Ga.
Monday, December 31, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN
Clemson vs. LSU
CRIS Opener:
LSU -3.5 O/U 58.5
CRIS Current: LSU -6 O/U 59
Rob Veno's Power Rating: LSU -1.5

At first glance, this seems like one of the better bowl matchups of the season, with both teams 10-2 and ranked in the top 15. However, barring a complete no show by LSU, this might not be much of a game, especially by the end of the night. It must be considered that LSU might be disappointed in not playing for the national title, and could simply go through the motions in a New Year’s Eve Bowl game. However, under Les Miles that simply has not been the case. Two years ago they thumped Texas A&M 41-24 in the Cotton Bowl and they have dominated ACC opponents in the Chick Fil-A Bowl twice in recent years. They crushed Georgia Tech 38-3 in 2008’s game and beat Miami 40-2 in 2005. Miles seems Read more

Russell Athletic Bowl – Orlando, Fla.
Friday, December 28, 2:30 pm PT - ESPN
Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech
CRIS Opener:
Virginia Tech -2 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Virginia Tech -2 O/U 41
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Virginia Tech -2

This matchup features a pair of teams that are clearly disappointed to be here.  Rutgers was a major surprise story out of the Big East for much of the season.  They started the campaign flying high at 7-0, including impressive road wins as TD+ underdogs at South Florida and at Arkansas before a home loss to Kent State ended their undefeated season.  Still, the Scarlet Knights were in position to earn their first-ever BCS bowl berth and their first-ever outright Big East Conference title following their road win at Cincinnati in mid-November.

But a Rutgers team that struggled offensively for much of the season finally came Read more

Cincinnati vs. Duke
CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -10 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Cincinnati -9 O/U 60.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Cincinnati -9.5

The way Duke ended the regular season presents an interesting situation for tonight's Belt Bowl matchup against Cincinnati. Two months ago, the Blue Devils got to six wins and clinched their first postseason berth since 1961. And not only that but they did so against in-state rival North Carolina who at the time was trending upwards after wins over Virginia Tech and Miami (FL). Duke's resume leading up to that victory wasn't eye-popping. A vast majority of BCS conference schools would have notched wins over Florida International, Memphis, NC Central, Wake Forest, and Virginia. And when asked to step up in class, the Blue Devils were blown out at Stanford and blew 20-0 lead against Read more

The NFL's Top 7 Pointspread Plays of the Year

12.27.2012     05:47 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In my world, there’s nothing better than a ‘right side’ winner – no drama, no sweating; an easy ‘rocking chair’ cover.  Of course, cashing nothing but ‘right side’ winners is MUCH easier said than done.   In the real world, there are so many games that come down to a late, key play that determines the SU and/or ATS winner.

As the end of the NFL season approaches. I’ve gone back through my notes, looking at the some of the wackiest pointspread outcomes of the year – the really memorable ones. End of the year Top 10 lists are so passé, so I’ll call this my Top 7 Pointspread Plays of the Year.  Let’s start the countdown with No. 7

No. 7 – Week 11, Green Bay Packers late field goal
Green Bay was a three-point road favorite at slumping Detroit, but they trailed for most of the game, and were behind by six points at the 2-minute warning.  Lions’ bettors weren’t worried – a Green Bay touchdown, in theory, would only lead to a one-point, non-covering win.  Aaron Rodgers threw for that touchdown on the very first play Read more

Ohio vs. Louisiana-Monroe
CRIS Opener:
UL-Monroe -6.5 O/U 61
CRIS Current: UL-Monroe -7 O/U 61
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UL-Monroe -7

My alma mater, Ohio University, returns to a bowl game for the fourth straight year after securing the program’s first ever bowl victory in 2011. This was a team widely expected to compete for and win the MAC conference. As we’ll discuss in the coming paragraphs those expectations looked to be spot on early on in the season but eventually went up in smoke.

Ohio returned a core group of 15 starters from a 10-win team in 2011 that included one of the MAC’s more dynamic quarterbacks, a solid offensive line and a stout defense. They went on the road and upset Penn State in Week 1 which would spark a seven-game win streak to begin the season as they Read more

Bowling Green vs. San Jose State
CRIS Opener:
San Jose State -7.5 O/U 47
CRIS Current: San Jose State -7 (-115) O/U 44.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Jose State -7

San Jose State put together an impressive season. They kicked it off with a three-point loss at Stanford and scored wins over bowl-bound teams San Diego State, Navy, and BYU. They also defeated a nine-win Louisiana Tech squad. The only blemish was a 22-point home loss to Utah State who proved to be the class of the WAC. San Jose’s late season wins over BYU and Louisiana Tech were however a little sketchy. The week leading up to the game, the Cougars accepted their bowl berth and being independent had nothing to play for. And Tech was off a devastating home loss to Utah State and forced to travel cross country.  Still, the overall body of work was so impressive Read more

College Basketball Gambling Free Play: Pepperdine Waves at Tulane Green Wave

12.20.2012     12:39 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pepperdine +8 at Tulane
Recommendation: Pepperdine


Despite knowing that this is the championship game of Tulane’s own holiday tournament and that the Green Wave is off to an 8-3 start this season, I have a hard time finding the eight points worth of separation given to them in this contest. Tulane’s non-conference schedule ranks 345th according to Ken Pom. Their slate is littered with teams that own RPI’s of 200 or worse – Georgia Tech and Nebraska are their only opponents possessing an RPI better than 214. Pepperdine’s schedule has not been much better, but it is better. The Waves have faced a pair of PAC-12 opponents (Cal and Washington State) along with early season surprise Cal State-Northridge and a much improved Central Michigan team (5-4 SU, 5-3 ATS vs. a tough schedule).

Fundamentally these teams are very similar statistically on defense but Pepperdine holds more than just a slight edge in almost every offensive Read more

College Football Handicapping: Duke embraces underdog role vs. Cincinnati

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Duke vs. Cincinnati -7 O/U 59.5

Appearing in the postseason for the first time since 1961, Duke welcomes the underdog role for its Belk Bowl matchup against Cincinnati.


“Doesn’t that just fuel anybody?” coach David Cutcliffe said. “That’s kind of life. You love people telling you you can’t. And when somebody tells you you’re the underdog, they’re telling you you can’t win. I’ve always liked that role.”

“We won’t get rusty with the practices we’ve had,” wide receiver Jamison Crowder said. “We’re going hard and in full pads.”

Poinsettia Bowl Betting Preview: BYU Cougars vs. San Diego State Aztecs

Poinsettia Bowl - San Diego, Calif.
Thursday, December 20, 5 pm PT - ESPN
BYU vs. San Diego State
CRIS Opener:
BYU -3 O/U 50
CRIS Current: BYU -3 O/U 48
Rob Veno's Power Rating: BYU -3

This was somewhat of a down year for BYU off last year's 10-3 season as Bronco Mendenhall's squad found more ways to lose tight games than to win them. Four of their five losses came by six points or less, and the lone blowout defeat (at the hands of Oregon State) was a tight game into the fourth quarter before things got ugly. Much of their mediocrity can be blamed on quarterback injuries and ineffectiveness.

Mendenhall has not yet named a starter for the bowl game, and he's not expected to choose between multi-year starter Riley Nelson and late season sensation James Lark until game day. Lark, a senior, was buried on the QB depth chart for most of his career, but he started the Read more

Central Michigan vs. Western Kentucky
CRIS Opener:
Western Kentucky -6 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Western Kentucky -5.5 O/U 58.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Western Kentucky -9

In what might be a rare situation this college bowl season we’ve got a game featuring two teams that figure to be “hungry” to partake in the Little Caesar’s Pizza Bowl. Western Kentucky will be playing in its first ever bowl game while Central Michigan gets a short trip to Detroit which represents its first bowl appearance since 2009.

The stadium certainly won’t be sold out but a decent turnout is expected to add a little flavor here. CMU has a large alumni base in the Detroit area and the short drive for current students and fans should make an attractive destination for a Read more
