College Football Betting: Another long season awaits Tim Beckman and Illinois

08.16.2013     09:19 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On a recent Sportsmemo Podcast (you can listen here) I had a great conversation with Brian Edwards about the Big Ten and in particular Illinois. Brian was pretty vocal about his distaste for Illini head coach Tim Beckman who is heading into his second season in Champaign. I'm not as anti-Beckman as Brian but I do agree that he appears to be over his head and will have a difficult time fielding a competitive football team this year. So much so that I recommend a play on the UNDER with their season over/under wins. Unfortunately, 5Dimes appears to be the only sportsbook I know of offering a line, so if you can't get a bet down consider this a "fade report" of the Illini.

If you do play at 5Dimes, there are multiple numbers available. The baseline number is 3.5 with -120 juice on both sides. Playing 3.5 under is a good play, however, you can also get 4un-175 which is even stronger. In order to lose, Illinois will obviously have to get to five wins which I simply don’t see. But paying the extra juice gives you a little wiggle room as four wins Read more

College Football Betting: Marshall's improvement hinges on defense

08.15.2013     08:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot of things line up for Marshall to have a strong season – Rakeem Cato under center, 15 starters back, Phil Steele anointing the Herd as this year's most improved team. But before everyone goes gag-gag for this squad there's that pesky issue of defense. Last season, Marshall had without question one of the worst defenses in the country. Some of that can be attributed to the offenses ultra-fast pace, but when you allow 43.1 ppg, there's a problem. Doc Holliday brought in a new defensive coordinator, Chuck Heater who by name alone should have this unit on the upswing. According to reports, this year's stop unit fared well against the offense during a summer scrimmage.


“They’re a confident group,”  Head Coach Doc Holliday said. “Chuck [Heater] and that whole staff have done a tremendous job and there are a lot more athletes out there than there have been in the past.”

“It’s coming together real well,” Sparrow said. “In my career here we’ve been pretty light at the

College Football Handicapping: Louisiana Tech reloads along offensive line

08.15.2013     07:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tough situation for Louisiana Tech as first-year head coach Skip Holtz inherits only seven returning starters. One unit in particular that could have issues is the offensive line. Tech attempted over 500 passes last season but behind a very experienced o-line allowed only 10 sacks. This year’s group has only 15 career starts under its belt and will be working with a new quarterback and obviously a new system.


“We’re running a little bit different scheme, but we’re running the same type of stuff,” Shepperd said. “It’s with a little twist ... and I definitely think it could be good for us.

“It’s been a grind, but we’re still staying focused and keeping positive attitudes,” Banks said. “The competition has been pretty good, and we look at it like we’re pushing ourselves to become better athletes.”

College Football Gambling: Pitt names Savage starting quarterback

08.15.2013     07:14 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pittsburgh Panthers second-year head coach Paul Chryst announced that Tom Savage will be the team's Week 1 starter vs. Florida State. Savage replaced Tino Sunseri who when not taking sacks was fairly effective (21 TDs, 3 INTs). Savage started as a true frosh for Rutgers back in 2009 but then struggled with injuries, transferred to Arizona but sat out, and now finds himself as the starter despite not having played in a game since November of 2010.


Also today we’ve told the players that Tom [Savage] is going to be our starting quarterback. We like what he has done to this point. It’s a reflection of where Tom is at. We still think that Chad [Voytik] has made really good progress, but we feel really good and confident with Tom.”

College Football Gambling: BYU down to three returning defensive starters

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
BYU posted some strong defensive numbers (14.0 ppg allowed) in 2012 but lost seven starters from that unit including first round pick Ezekiel Ansah. The Cougars were obviously slated to return four starters but that number is down to three after starting defensive back Jordan Johnson tore his ACL Monday.

NCAA Football Gambling Update: Kentucky attempts to go up-tempo with suspect o-line

08.13.2013     07:45 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

We talked earlier this summer about Kentucky's move to a more up-tempo offense under first-year offensive coordinator Neal Brown. It's unlikely to be a smooth transition in part because the Wildcats look thin along the offensive line. UK ranks 106th nationally in terms of o-line returning starts (39). According to one article, Kentucky still doesn't know who will start at center.


"We do try and alleviate some pressure off the quarterbacks with the center," says offensive coordinator Brown. "As far as cadence, as far as calling protections. Those type of things."

"Just getting depth with the O-Line is a big deal right now," says Stoops. "We need to get more bodies and more guys ready. We're working hard in moving some guys around and getting them some experience. "

College Football Betting Notes: Trench play a key for Rutgers-Fresno State matchup

Rutgers at Fresno State -10

An in-game matchup to consider for Week 1’s Rutgers-Fresno State game. FSU's offensive line reportedly struggled during a recent scrimmage allowing 15 tackles for loss and seven sacks (some of which by the second and third string). Last season the Bulldogs allowed 29 sacks though attempted over 500 passes. They went the entire regular season without allowing more than three sacks in a game before surrendering seven against SMU in the Hawaii Bowl.


"Do we need to move a tackle in to guard? What do we need to do to get our best five out there?" DeRuyter said. "We're going to get together, look at this tape really hard and make some tough decisions about who are those guys."



Rutgers meanwhile feels it can take Read more

College Football Handicapping: Wisconsin switches to 3-4 defense

08.13.2013     06:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Under first-year defensive coordinator Dave Aranda (Utah State), the Wisconsin Badgers will switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 this season.


"There are only a handful of teams in the NCAA that run a 3-4, so it will be hard for teams to imitate us in scout team. Offensive lines aren't really accustomed to blocking 3-4s, so I think that will be nice for us."

"We're so much more attack oriented," added DL Ethan Hemer. "We attack and come off the ball and we make offenses dictate to what we do instead of dictating to what offenses do."
