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

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

NBA Betting News: Possible lineup changes for Chicago Bulls

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago's "circus trip" started out strong with an overtime win against Phoenix. But the Bulls then dropped three straight (0-3 ATS) and find themselves 5-6 on the year. They also sport the league's worst against the spread record at 2-9. According to head coach Tom Thibodeau changes to the starting lineup may be forthcoming. The team travels to Milwaukee on Saturday.


“We’ll see,’’ Thibodeau said when asked if a new lineup was a possibility. “I’m looking at a lot of things.’’

“The defense is not what it used to be,’’ center Joakim Noah said. “It’s not where it was last year, that’s for sure. We’ve got to do better. We just got to do better. Losing three in a row is unacceptable. We’re better than that.

“We’ve just got to trust each other a little bit more on the court. We’ve got to play together a little bit more. We’re a team that’s always been great at

NFL Gambling: San Francisco hints that Kaepernick will start vs. Saints

San Francisco -1 at New Orleans O/U 49

San Francisco's Alex Smith passed his concussion tests and was able to practice yesterday. But Colin Kaepernick has taken all of the first-team snaps and will likely start Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.


"He's looked good, really sharp," Roman said. "He's gotten plenty of practice time. There's a lot of different scenarios this week and it's fluid. We talk through them, and it will change according to how the big picture changes, and obviously the quarterback position is a huge piece of that."

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Florida State Seminoles

Florida at Florida State
Ian Cameron's Recommendation:
Florida State
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -8
CRIS Current: Florida State -8.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -5.5

The Florida Gators have put together a strong season and are still hanging by a thread in the BCS Championship hunt – they need A LOT to go their way to have a shot. They do however appear to be running out of gas and coupled with some key injuries, are not in the best of situations for their rivalry tilt against Florida State.

The numbers certainly back up my theory on Florida’s regression. It all started when they suffered their first loss of the season against Georgia, 17-9. It was a turnover plagued, lethargic performance and the Gators have yet to truly rebound. Since then, they squeaked out a pair of seven-point home wins against Missouri and UL-Lafayette. It took Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
They are already talking about a Notre Dame-Alabama BCS National Championship. Still a lot of football left to be played but let's assume that's the matchup. What's the line? According to Kenny White, Alabama would be -7. Jimmy Vaccaro said he'd make the game -10.5/-11 and with it likely to close around -13.


“Obviously, from a business standpoint, we’re rooting for an Alabama-Notre Dame matchup to become a reality,” Vaccaro told The Linemakers on Sporting News. ”If we get that game with the intrigue already built in between the two storied programs, and the length of time that it will be on the board from early December to almost mid-January, it will be the single biggest handle on any college football game ever booked.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Lamar Cardinals at Virginia Cavaliers

Lamar at Virginia -18
Recommendation: Virginia


Remember last year's Lamar squad? According to Ken Pom, they were the most experienced team in college basketball and after some mid-season struggles, Knight called out his team, particularly the seniors, and they rallied and reach the NCAA Tournament. Even with all of that experience, the Cardinals had a difficult time stepping up in class. The lost to Louisville and Ohio State by 20 and fell short at Kentucky by 22. Well, much of that experience is long gone with only one starter (4.9 ppg LY) back. As a result, Lamar has been pounded in the early going, losing at Kansas State 79-55 and a similar result last time out at Charlotte, 70-49. Today, they face a Virginia squad that was without a point guard its first few games and ended up losing to Delaware and George Mason. Starting point guard Jontel Evans is still out but back-up Teven Jones returned against Seattle and made a huge difference as the Cavs rolled to an Read more

College Football Betting: Miami (FL) bans itself from postseason play

Miami (FL) -5 at Duke

In a weird and surprisingly honest turn of events, Miami has decided to ban itself from this year’s postseason. Saturday’s game against Duke was supposed to be the Hurricanes' ticket to the ACC Championship – win and you’re in. Instead, we now have a Florida State-Georgia Tech matchup.


"Come at me. Bury me all you want. Attack me all you want," Golden said. "These kids who have stuck it out, who have stayed here, who have never gotten one week in two years without hearing about all this nonsense, don't blame them. And I appreciate all those kids that not only stayed here, but those guys that answered the bell, that answered the call to come here and fix this. And we will get it fixed."
