NFL Handicapping: Pittsburgh's Tomlin says Roethlisberger may play

11.27.2012     02:29 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Whoa.


"Right now, Charlie Batch is our quarterback."



Relax, Pittsburgh head coach Mike Tomlin countered by saying that there is a chance Ben Roethlisberger – who threw at practice on Monday – will play Sunday against the Ravens. List him questionable all you want Steelers, you know damn well he’s playing.


"Ben threw the ball," Tomlin said. "He'll take steps maybe toward playing this week. We'll leave that door open. He's got a chance."

"It was a failure," he said. "Very rarely do you lose a game and can point to a few ares of failure for why you lost, but we turned the ball over and were penalized on offense. We talked all week about being backup quarterback friendly.

"Those things aren't quarterback friendly. I chiefly accept responsibility for the lack of ball security. That eliminated any chance for rhythm and success.

CRIS Opener:
Northern Illinois -5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Northern Illinois -6 O/U 58
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Kent State pk

The MAC Championship returns to the fast track at Ford Field this week for what should be an exciting game. Both Kent State (East Division winner) and Northern Illinois (West Division winner) have been on fire this year; both teams are 11-1 SU and both have been a bettor’s dream going a combined 19-4 ATS. So what got these teams here and who can we expect to hoist the trophy at the end of the day?

The secret to the success of NIU and Kent State is simple really; they play solid defense and they employ dominating ground attacks. Looking at the individual teams we see a number of key factors that have sparked this winning formula. For the Huskies, they finished second in scoring defense and third in total Read more

College Football Gambling: Notre Dame an underdog in virtually every BCS scenario

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to one report, Notre Dame would be an underdog to five of the six SEC teams currently ranked in the BCS top 10.


“Sporting News asked Kenny White, longtime oddsmaker in Las Vegas and one of The Linemakers on Sporting News for betting lines on potential games between the Irish and the six SEC teams ranked in the top 10 of the current BCS poll,” Hayes said. “Of those six teams, Notre Dame would be favored to win one game: against No. 10 South Carolina by 1 point.”

US Government shuts door on InTrade

Your United States Government at work...


"We are sorry to announce that due to legal and regulatory pressures, Intrade can no longer allow U.S. residents to participate in our real-money prediction markets," the Dublin-based company said in a statement on its website. Intrade said that existing customers must exit their trades and close their accounts.

"It is against the law to solicit U.S. persons to buy and sell commodity options, even if they are called "prediction" contracts, unless they are listed for trading and traded on a CFTC-registered exchange or unless legally exempt," Enforcement Director David Meister said in a statement.

"There's a very large and active market on U.S. political outcomes, and that's not going away," he said. Businesses and election watchers still have other places to which to look, such as U.K. prediction site Betfair, he noted.











College Football Betting Preview: Louisville Cardinals at Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Louisville at Rutgers
Thursday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN

CRIS Opener: Rutgers -2.5 O/U 43.5
CRIS Current: Rutgers -3 O/U 43.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Rutgers -3.5

The de facto Big East Championship takes place on Thursday with Louisville traveling to Rutgers. The winner of the game earns an automatic BCS bowl berth.

Louisville is about to play its 12th game of the season and at no point have I felt this team was of 9-2 “quality.” Defensively is where the Cardinals have repeatedly fallen short. The overall season numbers aren't far removed for 2011 but a quick dig shows the stop unit has without question regressed. In conference play, the Cardinals have allowed nearly 200 ypg on the ground – 75 ypg more than last season. And we’re not talking about a host of run-dominant teams with half the league averaging less than 140 ypg. I'm simply amazed that Louisville is 9-2 Read more

College Football Betting Trends: Defense has been the key to C-USA Championship

11.26.2012     12:54 PM     Printer Friendly
Central Florida at Tulsa pk

Over the last five years there has been a consistent trend when it comes to the C-USA Championship: The better defense wins and covers. That’s right, the team with the better total defense in conference play has emerged victorious both straight up and against the spread five straight times (three as an underdog). Those five winners all came from the East Division whereas this year’s matchup – according to our trend – favors the West’s Tulsa. In conference play, Tulsa allowed 336.1 ypg good for second while UCF ranked 5th (388.9 ypg). The two squads met two weeks ago on this same field with Tulsa winning 23-21 as a 1-point favorite. The Golden Hurricane outgained the Knights 461-235 including 209-66 on the ground.

Monday Night Football Betting Odds: 2-8 Carolina getting pounded by markets

11.26.2012     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
Carolina -3 at Philadelphia O/U 42

Pick your coma-inducing poison. According to Bookmaker, 75% of bets have been placed on the Carolina Panthers for tonight's Monday Night Football game at Philadelphia. Carolina continues to receive support with most shops showing -3 with -120 or -125 juice. Heritage went to -3.5 even money. Interesting that on LVH's look-ahead lines for next week, Carolina is also a 3-point road favorite...at Kansas City.

College Football Handicapping: Conference championship early line moves

11.26.2012     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Taking a quick look at the early lines moves for this weekend's college football conference championships.

Big East - Louisville at Rutgers (Thursday)
After both teams lost last weekend, Thursday's matchups becomes the de facto title game. Rutgers opened -2.5 but was quickly bet up to -3 across the board.

MAC - Northern Illinois vs. Kent State (Friday at Detroit)
No regular season meeting as both teams finished unblemished in league play. Combined the two squads were 20-4 against the spread. Interesting to see if the market pushes this game off the dead number of 5. CRIS opened NIU -5 but a small move towards Kent bumped it down to -4.5. The rest of the market has held firm at -5.

PAC-12 - UCLA at Stanford (Friday)
Both teams met last week as Stanford jumped out to an early lead and cruised to a 35-17 victory. Note that the Bruins had already wrapped up the PAC-12 South prior to the contest – and are probably happy to be facing the Cardinal as oppose to Oregon. Stanford appears to be much improved since the move to quarterback Kevin Hogan who in four games has connected on 73% of Read more

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: Dissecting the NFL's bottom feeders Part II

11.26.2012     07:20 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I turned my focus towards the bottom feeders; teams that some folks have been calling “dead.” There were more struggling squads than I could cover in a single column; hence Part II of my bottom feeder report this week.

With five games remaining on the slate for every NFL team, there’s still time to make money fading the teams that have quit on their coach and their season. On the other end of the spectrum, there’s an opportunity to make money with teams that are out of playoff contention IF they play with passion and precision down the stretch.

Here’s my take on this five-pack of sub .500 clubs...

Cleveland - Rookie QB Brandon Weeden continues to struggle, throwing an early pick six, putting the Browns in a hole. QB woes have plagued this franchise since their inception/return to Cleveland more than a decade ago, and I've seen nothing out of Weeden as a rookie to make me think that he's a franchise QB, capable of leading this team back to Read more
