Capital One Bowl Gambling Preview: Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Georgia Bulldogs

Capital One Bowl - Orlando, Fla.
Tuesday, January 1, 10 am PT - ABC
Nebraska vs. Georgia
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -9.5 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Georgia -8.5 O/U 60
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Georgia -9.5

This matchup features a pair of teams that are clearly disappointed to be here.  Both Nebraska and Georgia were in position to play in BCS Bowl games, but both squads came up short in their respective conference championship games.  The way they came up short, however, was quite different.

Nebraska enjoyed a strong regular season, despite some ugly losses, like the 63-38 defeat they suffered in Columbus against Ohio State and their early season failure on the road at UCLA.  But after winning ten games, including an impressive road win at Michigan State and a wild, come-from-behind victory over Wisconsin at home, the Cornhuskers were thoroughly embarrassed and Read more

Outback Bowl - Tampa, Fla.
Tuesday, January 1, 10 am PT - ESPN
Michigan vs. South Carolina
CRIS Opener:
South Carolina -3.5 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: South Carolina -4.5 O/U 47.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: South Carolina -3.5

The Outback Bowl is where we typically see the third or fourth best offerings from the Big Ten and SEC. It has quality teams but not always supremely motivated teams despite the New Year’s Day kickoff.

Breaking down the fundamental matchups may prove a little tricky. Michigan ranks as one of the better defenses in the country and coordinator Greg Mattison has garnered a lot of praise for turning this stop unit around. I wonder if they’re a bit of a paper tiger though. Yes the Wolverines rank 10th in total defense, 2nd in passing defense, and 16th in scoring defense nationally but the backbone of those rankings were built against the Read more

Iowa State vs. Tulsa
CRIS Opener:
Iowa State -1 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Iowa State -1.5 O/U 51
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Tulsa -2

Iowa State and Tulsa hook up for a second time this season after the Cyclones prevailed in Ames back in Week 1, 38-23, as 2-point underdogs. Iowa State (6-6, 3-6 Big XII) will be playing in its second consecutive postseason after losing to Rutgers, 27-13, in the Pinstripe Bowl. Tulsa (10-3, 8-1 C-USA) went 10-2 after their season opening loss to Iowa State. They’ve been to back-to-back bowl games –losing to BYU last year, 24-21, as 2.5-point favorites and defeating Hawaii 62-35 in 2010 as 10-point underdogs. Motivation might be a question mark for Iowa State considering they are playing a team they already beat while Tulsa obviously doesn’t want to lose to the same Read more

Pinstripe Bowl Betting Preview: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Syracuse Orange

West Virginia vs. Syracuse
CRIS Opener:
West Virginia -3.5 O/U 73.5
CRIS Current: West Virginia -3.5 O/U 71.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: West Virginia -4.5

Who is going to force more than two punts is the general feeling most bettors have heading into Saturday’s Pinstripe Bowl. I don't see either team with a significant motivational edge. Syracuse is obviously pleased to being playing in the postseason and within proximity to the venue. West Virginia may not be as giddy but I do give the Mountaineers credit for not completely packing it in the final few weeks of the regular season. They also have a little bit of revenge on their minds as these two teams met last season and Syracuse cruised to a 49-23 win as 14-point home underdogs. And in 2010, Syracuse again came up aces against the Mountaineers, Read more

Alamo Bowl Betting Preview: Oregon State Beavers vs. Texas Longhorns

Alamo Bowl - San Antonio
Saturday, December 29, 3:34 pm PT - ESPN
Oregon State vs. Texas
CRIS Opener:
Oregon State -1 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Oregon State -3.5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oregon State -2

Texas has the advantage of playing in San Antonio, but while that should result in a fair amount of fan support, I doubt it will be much of a factor. Let’s face it, the Alamo Bowl is not where the Longhorns or their faithful wanted to finish the season, so playing a couple hundred miles from home isn’t going to give them a huge emotional lift. For me to get involved with Texas, I would need assurances that they were completely into the game – it would also help to know that Oregon State would come in flat. I have seen nothing from either side to indicate that being the case, and as a result, Oregon State is a deserving small favorite. For Texas, a win 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

Meineke Car Care Bowl - Houston, Texas

Minnesota vs. Texas Tech
CRIS Opener:
Texas Tech -12.5 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Texas Tech -13 O/U 55
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Texas Tech -10.5

On the surface, Minnesota and Texas Tech will both be limping into the Meineke Car Care Bowl.  The Gophers dropped three of their last four games – the three losses by 20.6 ppg.  The Red Raiders lost four of their last five games with the lone win coming in overtime against woeful Kansas.  However, Minnesota may have the edge when it comes to momentum.  For starters, this will serve as their first postseason game since losing the Insight Bowl to Iowa State in 2009.  Taking matters further the Gophers haven’t won a bowl game since 2004 under the steady eye of former head coach Glen Mason.  No question, Minny’s Read more

College Football Betting: Northwestern prepares for Gator Bowl

Northwestern vs. Mississippi State -2 O/U 51.5

Northwestern talks about preparing for its Gator Bowl matchup against Mississippi State. The Wildcats have lost four consecutive bowl games.


“The guys who have played a lot of reps, their bodies are really starting to feel better. That’s key. You want to be crisp. Now we’re knocking out some physical practices and then when we get to Jacksonville, maybe we slow it down a bit.”

“I’m more comfortable in the (bowl) routine,” Fitzgerald said. “Like a lot of things, the first time you do it, you look back and think: 'What the heck was I doing?' We’ve definitely tweaked our plan. I’m probably jaded by what I experienced as a player.”

NBA Handicapping: Defense keeping Orlando Magic competitive

Orlando at Toronto -4 O/U 187

One of this season's biggest surprises has been the Orlando Magic (12-13) – in particular their performance on the defensive end of the floor. Under head coach Jacque Vaughn's tutelage, the Magic are currently sixth in the league in defensive efficiency (98.8). Last year, with three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year Dwight Howard, the Magic ranked 13th (101.7). Orlando has gone UNDER the total in six of its last eight games.


"I don't mind if we have zero steals," Vaughn said recently. "I love to have contested shots, and I love for us to be in a position to rebound the basketball."

"If there's anything that has surprised me, it's been our level of defense and our defensive competence," guard J.J. Redick said.
