College Basketball Gambling Free Play: Temple Owls at Buffalo Bulls

Temple -7.5 at Buffalo
Recommendation: Temple


My clients and I cashed a ticket fading the Buffalo Bulls in their loss to in-city rival Canisius last week. The Bulls have been woeful so far this season. Their lone DI win came against Evansville in the Purple Aces’ first game without injured star Colt Ryan. They suffered three very bad losses to the likes of Princeton and Western Illinois on their home floor and against a sub-par Yale squad on a neutral court.

The Bulls are averaging just 59 points per game despite facing some rather mediocre competition. Tonight they take a big step up in class against Temple who boast a very solid core group of players led by Khalif Wyatt (14.7 ppg) and Scootie Randall (21.7 ppg). They have inside and outside scoring balance that will really cause problems for Buffalo.

The Bulls are likely to have senior guard Tony Watson back in their lineup after he missed time with an ankle injury but his effectiveness Read more

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

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Cavaliers at Memphis Grizzlies

Cleveland +12 at Memphis O/U 194.5
Recommendation: Cleveland


This is the epitome of a flat spot for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Memphis has been as good as any team in the NBA through the first four weeks of the season.  Lionel Hollins’ squad enters tonight’s game with a 9-2 SU, 9-2 ATS mark.  They’re coming off a very satisfying win over the Lakers, after having already knocked off the likes of New York, Oklahoma City and Miami in the last two weeks. 

The Grizzlies have been off for a couple of days, and now face the Cavs, Raptors and Pistons in their next three ballgames, all at home; teams with a combined 9-32 SU record this year – teams the Grizzlies know full well that they can beat.  It sets up for a lethargic performance for a team that isn’t used to this pointspread range – they haven’t been favored by more than seven points in any previous game this season and only two of their nine wins have come by more Read more

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

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 Handicapping: Michigan State seeks bowl eligibility vs. Minnesota

Michigan State -8 at Minnesota O/U 38

Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio went so far as to say that his team "will win" Saturday at Minnesota. Wisely, he didn't make mention about winning by margin, something the Spartans have had difficulty with this year. Last week marked the seventh straight time an MSU game was decided by four points or less. The Spartans went 2-5 SU/ATS in those contests.


"It's a program game for us, there's no question about that," he said. "It would be our sixth straight bowl game, so it is very significant to the program. We need to be motivated by that fact."

"When we win Saturday and I'll say when

Oddsmakers weigh in on potential Notre Dame-Alabama BCS title game

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.”
