Rutgers vs. Virginia Tech -2.5 O/U 41.5

Virginia Tech is saying all the right things heading into its Russell Athletic Bowl matchup against Rutgers. The Hokies have played in a BCS bowl five out of the last six years.

“If you’re a redshirt junior like me, we haven’t won a bowl game yet since we’ve been here,” Exum said regarding his actual time on the field. “That’s something that stays in the … front of our mind. We’re definitely motivated to win this game.”

“I look forward to the future, but this bowl game is real, real important,” said Beamer, who is 8-11 in bowls with Tech. “To finish with three (consecutive) wins, that’s what I’d like to talk about with this

NBA Handicapping: Golden State goes for its sixth straight road victory at Orlando

Golden State -4.5 at Orlando O/U 194

The Golden State Warriors have quietly put together one of the most impressive streaks in the NBA this season – five consecutive road wins (4-1 ATS). They've been on the East Coast since last Wednesday and close out their trip tonight in Orlando. According to one database, teams that have won five straight road games are 12-7 SU/ATS in a sixth road game.

"We are a humble team," power forward David Lee said. "We know we're not the most talented team in the league. We can't underestimate anybody, and it'll continue to be that way, even if we win 30 games in a row. We can't afford a letdown."

"We thought that we had a chance to be a solid six-through-eight seed in the West," Lee said. "I understand a lot of people thought we weren't going to make

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Sacramento Kings at Milwaukee Bucks

Sacramento +6.5 at Milwaukee O/U 198.5
Recommendation: Sacramento

The Kings’ 1-7 straight up road record makes it tough to side with them away from Power Balance Pavilion but I’ll lean on the stronger numbers and fundamentals here. While winning one out of eight sounds bad, being 3-5 against the spread in those eight makes the mark a bit easier to accept. The real eye opening technical trends come in the form of head-to-head matchups where the road team in this series is 9-1 ATS over the last 10 contests and the underdog is 8-2 ATS. Those extremely strong historical results combined with Milwaukee’s recent 4-7 ATS run and offensive shutdown (scored 100+ just once in that string without the help of overtime) make taking +6.5 very appealing. Fundamental aspects support the Kings in this game as well since their frontline rotation should hold a physical advantage over Milwaukee’s  and their backcourt will include Tyreke Evans tonight which makes them very Read more

College Football Gambling: San Jose State undecided on who will coach bowl game

Bowling Green vs. San Jose State -7 O/U 47

Early reports indicate that San Jose State's Mike MacIntyre will not coach the Spartans in the Military Bowl. On Monday, MacIntyre accepted the head gig at Colorado. He's also expected to take offensive coordinator Brian Lindgren with him.

"It's hard when you see a guy you admired and respected and you worked hard for put on another school's colors and go out there and have a press conference like that," senior offensive lineman David Quessenberry said. "You kind of feel like you just got broken up with. I'm happy for him. He's pursuing his dreams. Colorado's got a great guy, a good coach and a good recruiter. He's going to be able to accomplish there what he did here."

College Basketball ATS Analysis: Can Illinois-Chicago hold its betting value?

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
It's college basketball finals week which gives us a chance to catch our breath and analyze the first quarter of the season. Throughout the week we'll be taking a look at ATS successes and failures and trying to project whether or not the trend will continue.

Illinois-Chicago: At the end of last season, UIC had eight wins and ranked 290th nationally according to Ken Pomeroy. There were flashes of competence and a few nice spread covers but the Flames looked as if they were still going to be outmanned on most nights despite heading into the 2012-12 season with a third-year head coach and four returning starters. But here we are, a month into the season, and UIC is 8-1 SU and 7-1 ATS. And their schedule wasn't easy. They lost by seven at New Mexico as 16.5-point underdogs. Beat Iona by five as a 7.5-point underdog on a neutral court. Strolled into Northwestern as double-digit underdogs as won by six. And last time out took down Colorado State as a short home dog. And if you're looking for  reason why all of that took place, defense would be a good place to start.

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: Looking at the contenders in the NFC

12.10.2012     07:57 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Last week, I spent my Sunday focusing on a handful of AFC playoff contenders, gauging their respective chances for a run to the Super Bowl. This week, it was the NFC's turn to go under the microscope.

Tampa Bay: At the start of the day, the Bucs were legitimate playoff contenders, despite their two game losing streak. By the end of the afternoon, four teams had jumped them in the NFC standings (Dallas, Washington, Minnesota and St Louis), leaving the Bucs as the #11 team in a conference that will send only six teams to the postseason.

Tampa was done in by two failures against the Eagles. First, Josh Freeman spent the entire first half in a nasty funk, completely out of sync with his receivers. Freeman is on pace for his lowest completion percentage since his rookie season and the fewest rushing yards of his career. He's no dual threat these days. Freeman's yards per pass attempt numbers are solid, and he's on track to finish the season with only half as many interceptions as he threw last year. But elite level quarterbacks – playoff quarterbacks – aren't supposed to spend 30 minutes struggling to find any sort of rhythm against a Read more

College Basketball ATS Analysis: Creighton Blue Jays continue to cover spreads

It's college basketball finals week which gives us a chance to catch our breath and analyze the first quarter of the season. Throughout the week we'll be taking a look at ATS successes and failures and trying to project whether or not the trend will continue.

Creighton Blue Jays: What makes Creighton’s 7-1 ATS record unique is that preseason expectations were very high. This is a team that won 29 games last season and returned practically everyone including their star, Doug McDermott. So how have they been able to make their backers money? Amazingly, it’s been defense. We mentioned last season’s 29 wins yet the Blue Jays were a .500 team against the spread – in large part because they couldn’t defend. Creighton allowed over a point per possessions, didn’t force turnovers, and simply outscored the competition – something they were very good at – in order to win. This season, despite more than a few inflated pointspreads, the Blue Jays are actually defending. After returning home from a Thanksgiving tournament, Creighton was blitzed at home by Boise State, 83-70. But what they’ve done since Read more

Thursday Night Football Betting Odds: Will double-digit home dog trend continue?

12.06.2012     01:35 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Denver -10 at Oakland O/U 48.5

If there is one positive for the Oakland Raiders tonight it's that they're a double-digit home underdog. Historically, it's been a very profitable profile with 56% winners (35-28 ATS) dating back to 2000. Of late, it has been even stronger with nine straight cashes and a 19-8 ATS mark since 2009. That trend however hasn't deterred a majority of bettors from supporting the Denver Broncos for tonight’s Thursday night contest. According to Bookmaker, 71% of side bets have been placed on the chalk.
