College Football Handicapping: Michigan defense expected to apply constant pressure

08.15.2016     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan's first-year defensive coordinator Don Brown is noted for being one of the most blitz-happy coaches in college football. Brown's Boston College defense ranked second nationally with 114 tackles for loss in 2015. Last year, the Wolverines ranked fifth in the Big Ten in tackles for loss (88) and sacks (32).


“I said ‘You know, Coach, I’m probably (bringing pressure) 65 percent (of the time).’ And he goes. ‘Nah, I hear 85.’ I think he knew what he was looking for.”

“Dr. Blitz knows what he’s doing, man. That’s what he’s great at. That’s what he hangs his hat on and that’s what we’re going to do. And I’m pretty sure everyone knows it.”

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit (Verlander) +100 at Seattle (Hernandez) O/U 7
Recommendation: Detroit


Since coming off the DL, Seattle has gone 3-1 in Felix Hernandez’s four starts.  Those results aren’t sustainable, because King Felix is no ‘King’ at this stage of his career. The results don’t lie.  Hernandez has a 5.26 ERA in those four starts since coming off the DL.  He’s allowed 35 baserunners while only notching 19 strikeouts, while giving up as many home runs as he did for the entire first half of the campaign.  His full season numbers are now below the MLB average in just about every advanced metric category.  His fastball velocity is down, his strikeout rate is down and his swinging strike percentage is down.  To make matters worse, he’s got a lousy track record against numerous current Tigers, including key middle of the order bats Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Ian Kinsler.  Seattle’s bullpen behind him is completely spent following last night’s marathon.

Meanwhile, Justin Verlander is headed in the opposite direction of late.  Since getting extended rest Read more

College Football Handicapping: Purdue desperate for offensive help

08.08.2016     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's generally not a good sign when a coach is in an improved-or-get-fired year and decides to go with a new offensive coordinator who wants to "simplify things." That's the case with Purdue who canned OC John Shoop this past offseason. The Boilermakers improved from a yards per game perspective each of Shoops' three seasons but still ranked as one of the weakest offenses in the Big Ten. Purdue decided to promote tight ends coach Terry Malone to replace Shoop. Because of injuries and ineffectiveness, the Boilermakers have been forced to play multiple quarterbacks each of head coach Darrell Hazell's first three seasons. It's resulted in a 6-30 record and only two Big Ten wins. In five seasons as a head coach (Kent State and Purdue), Hazell's offenses have never ranked higher than 74th nationally in total offense (104th average).


"At the end of the day, simple is best," said Hazell, now 6-30 in three seasons at Purdue. "Coach Malone has done an excellent job with these

College Football Gambling: The revolving door of defensive coordinators continues for Indiana

08.04.2016     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson has done a really good job in Bloomington after gutting the program his first year (1-11) and finally getting the Hoosiers to the postseason in 2015. His offense has proven capable of scoring on practically everyone (31.3 ppg vs. Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State LY). It's the defense that has held them back. Last season, the Hoosiers lost five games by one score and in those contests allowed 43.2 ppg. IU heads into this season on its third defensive coordinator in six years. Tom Allen steps in after a one-year stint as USF's DC. He plans to employ a new 4-2-5 scheme.


“I think they’re here,’’ Allen said. “We’re going to recruit to it, but I didn’t come here and evaluate the team and think ‘Man, we’re really lacking this certain position.’ The one position to me that’s the most unique is the Husky position, the hybrid linebacker/safety. We feel like we have two or three guys there

College Football Handicapping: Big Ten increases league schedule to nine games

08.04.2016     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We put together a breakdown of the Big Ten's home and away and cross division pairings now that the conference slate has been increased from eight to an uneven nine games. It looks as if this season the entire East Division will get the five home/four away split. Overall, there are some obvious favorable and unfavorable draws. Penn State for example gets the 5 home/4 away split, two of the "Big Three" (Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State) at home as as well as its two toughest West games (Minnesota and Iowa). On the other end of the spectrum, Wisconsin plays only four conference home games, gets the entire "Big Three" from the East two of which on the road, and plays two of its three toughest division games (Iowa, Nebraska, and Iowa) on the road in back-to-back-to-back weeks.

Las Vegas sportsbooks look to get in on the Olympic betting action

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For the first time since 2000, Las Vegas sportsbooks will be offering betting lines on various Olympic events.


“Any event that receives a lot of attention from the media, there’s a good chance that we could post it,” he says. “Whether it’s popular because of controversy or a great story and or an American competing for a gold medal.”

“We expect it to be very minimal,” he says. Also, he doesn’t expect to take any bets on rowing. In fact, despite the diversity of sport in the Olympics, Kornegay is certain that basketball, one of the boring old big four, will draw the majority of betting action this summer. “It won’t even be close,” he says.

College Football Handicapping: Kansas could be a great over bet this season

08.02.2016     11:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By default, Kansas is probably going to be better than last year. It may not result in more wins or even pointspread covers, but being outgained by 2.26 yards per play is hard to duplicate. The Jayhawks were equally awful in 2014 and were outgained by "only" 1.67 ypp. It's clear that head coach David Beaty's "air raid" offense isn't the right fit for winning games or even being competitive considering the roster's current lack of talent but any increase in offensive productivity and the right opponent (and number) and perhaps there will be some value on playing this squad over the total. Kansas finished 6-6 O/U last season but three of the team's six unders were with totals of 71, 74, and 76 high numbers even for a competent offense. When priced with totals below 60, KU went 5-2 O/U. And in those seven games, Kansas topped two touchdowns only twice. Keep an eye out for situations where the Jayhawks face more moderate offenses (and thus moderate totals Read more
