College Football Handicapping: Teams use 3-3-5 defense in hopes of stopping spread

10.12.2012     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article on college football teams switching to a 3-3-5 defense scheme. Rich Rodriguez used it at West Virginia and brought it with him to Arizona. UL-Monroe uses it as its base defense while Arizona State and Wisconsin will show it on occasion. With the right personnel, it can be an effective way of stopping spread offenses. But like most system changes, it takes a while to fully grasp. It also isn’t a good matchup against physical, power running teams.


“You can show people different looks,” said Strong, now the head coach at Louisville. “Because it’s a balanced defense, they don’t know where to attack you from and they don’t know where you’re attacking from.”

“You have to be intelligent because even though it makes it hard on the offense, it’s more complicated for us as a defense,” Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland said. “You have to be keyed in to your assignments and your adjustments with what the offense shows.”

NCAAF Handicapping: Utah's defense has been exposed vs. PAC-12

Utah at UCLA -9 O/U 52

Utah braces from UCLA's spread offense. Utah ranks 36th nationally in total defense but in two PAC-12 contests, the Utes allowed 944 yards on nearly seven yards per play.


"There's a dramatic difference in scheme," said Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, who added that UCLA's offense is now more like that of Arizona, Arizona State and Oregon — a team that spread things out with a good tempo.

"We know we're better than that as a defense. We know that we can play better than that," Lotulelei said. "It's all up to us. Our coaches put us in the best positions that they can, we've got to be the ones who go out there and make the plays."

College Football Gambling Preview: Tennessee Volunteers at Mississippi State Bulldogs

Tennessee at Mississippi State
Brent Crow's Recommendation:
Mississippi State
Saturday, 6 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi State -2.5 O/U 53
CRIS Current: Mississippi State -3 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Mississippi State -4

Through five games, unbeaten Mississippi State has yet to be challenged but gets its biggest test of the season against Tennessee. The Bulldogs have beaten up on some weak teams this year; Kentucky, Auburn, South Alabama, Troy and Jackson State – none of which hold a candle to Tennessee offensively. MSU has forced 15 turnovers while committing just four, but that should be expected given the competition. They have been good but not great on offense, averaging just over 400 ypg despite playing two Sun Belt squads and FCS Jackson State.

The good news for Mississippi State is that Tennessee if far from a defensive juggernaut. The Vols’ Read more

College Football Betting: Using ACCU-Stats in your weekly handicap

10.12.2012     06:50 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Around this time of year, Sportsmemo's ACCU-Stats become a big part of my handicapping arsenal. I won't make a bet or release a play to my clients without taking a peak at the matchup numbers. This week, I found three instances where I was interested in a particular side but the ACCU-Stats where not in my favor and I ended up passing. Let's take a look at what I discovered.

There are plenty of games each and every week where "spot/situation" wins out over "stats." And to me, Florida isn’t in the best of spots having to come up to Nashville to face Vanderbilt after defeating LSU. The strength of schedule for both teams is similar (Florida, 11th; Vanderbilt, 3rd) so I can put a bit more trust in the ACCU-Stats. As you can see, the Gators not only have an advantage in the run-game but a significant one. I'm not laying the -8.5 but those numbers kept me off the home underdog.

Basic math got me intrigued with this game. Stanford beat USC and went up to Seattle laying -7 and lost outright to Washington. The Trojans meanwhile are laying nearly two touchdowns. Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Baltimore Ravens

Dallas at Baltimore
Teddy Covers' Recommendation:
Dallas
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Baltimore -4 O/U 45
CRIS Current: Baltimore -3.5 O/U 44

We last saw the Cowboys getting embarrassed at home on Monday Night Football in a turnover filled debacle of a loss against Chicago.  Tony Romo threw a career worst five interceptions in that ballgame; completely out of sync with big play receivers Dez Bryant, Kevin Ogletree and Miles Austin.  DeMarco Murray gained only 24 yards on eleven carries and the Cowboys defense couldn’t stop Jay Cutler.

At 2-2, the Cowboys certainly haven’t quit on their coach or their season.  Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten: “This has to be a wake-up call for us…We're not going to quit. We're going to stay together. I believe we have the right people. Great leadership in Jason (Garrett). We'll get it turned around.”  The Cowboys should be much healthier off Read more

College Football Gambling Preview: Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma Sooners

Texas vs. Oklahoma
Ian Cameron's Recommendation:
Texas
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -3.5 O/U 63
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -3.5 O/U 58.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma -2.5

The Red River Rivalry gets renewed on Saturday and this time around, Texas has a good chance to snap their two-game losing streak. Two injuries for Texas you will want to keep an eye on are RB Malcolm Brown and LB Jordan Hicks.  Both are listed as questionable at this time. Brown has 245 rushing yards on 40 carries this season and Hicks is the leading tackler on this Longhorns defense.

Texas comes into this game a little bit undervalued after last week’s home loss to West Virginia. The Longhorns have been forced to deal with two potent offenses the last two weeks with Oklahoma State and WVU and are certainly battle tested. Keep in mind the Sooners’ offensive line is still a concern. Read more

College Football Betting Preview: TCU Horned Frogs at Baylor Bears

TCU at Baylor
Andrew Lange's Recommendation:
Baylor
Saturday, 4 pm - FSN
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -6 O/U 66.5
CRIS Current: Baylor -7 O/U 68
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baylor -4

Teddy Covers mentioned on today's Sportsmemo Podcast that TCU is prime fade material. I agree 100%. There's the suspension of quarterback Casey Pachall and an upcoming schedule that ranks among the toughest in the country (at Baylor, vs. Texas Tech, at Oklahoma State, at West Virginia, vs. Kansas State, at Texas, vs. Oklahoma). Even with Pachall, based on how the Horned Frogs have looked this season, two wins out of the group would be quite the accomplishment.

Some may point to last week's home loss to Iowa State as being a bit unlucky (TCU had five turnovers, and outgained the Cyclones by over 100 yards) but Read more

College Foobtall Betting: Wazzu's Mike Leach calls out seniors

California -7 at Washington State O/U 54

So Washington State head coach Mike Leach had this to say about his upperclassmen. Leach also mentioned having to go the youth route, the only problem being some of youth isn't ready.


"Some of (the seniors) have been great, and some of them have been very poor," Leach said Monday. "Some of them have had kind of this zombielike, go through the motions, everything is like how it's always been, that's how it'll always be.

"Some of them quite honestly have an empty-corpse quality. That's not pleasant to say or pleasant to think about, but that's a fact."

College Football Handicapping: Bettors can't get enough of North Carolina

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
North Carolina -8 at Miami (FL) O/U 68.5

Over the last few weeks we've seen quite a transformation out of North Carolina. After beating Elon 62-0 in Week 1, the Tar Heels lost at Wake Forest as 10-point chalk and the following week trailed Louisville 36-7 at halftime. But starting in that second half of against the Cardinals, UNC has been nothing short of dominant. Over their last 14 quarters, the Tar Heels have outscored the opposition 168-43. The betting markets look to have picked up on this surge. Last week against Virginia Tech, UNC opened -3.5, closed -6, and won 48-34. This week, bettors are going back to well as the Tar Heels opened -5.5 and are currently as high as -8 at Miami.  According to our ACCU-Stats, North Carolina holds distinct advantages over the Hurricanes in all four statistical categories.
