College Football Gambling: Washington loses key defender

11.08.2016     09:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's an injury worth mentioning. Washington announced that linebacker Joe Mathis will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury. Mathis, the team leader in sacks and tackles for loss, hasn't played the last three weeks and the stats indicate his absence was felt. With Mathis on the field, Washington racked up 24 sacks and 47 TFLs in six games. Without Mathis, the Huskies had only three sacks and nine TFLs in three games. UW's stop unit is loaded with future NFL draft picks, but Mathis' production is hard to ignore. The Huskies are currently -9 home favorites vs. USC for Saturday.

NFL Gambling: Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions are thinking playoffs

11.07.2016     11:23 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Let's take a look at two teams that were recently considered playoff afterthoughts but now find themselves in the hunt.

Detroit’s stunning overtime win at Minnesota put the Lions in the thick of the NFC North race. The Lions (5-4) are a half game back of the Vikings who are in the midst of a nasty three-game slide. The Lions have managed to overcome a ton of injuries on the defensive side of the football. Ezekiel Ansah and Haloti Ngata have missed time due to injuries along the defensive front. Linebacker DeAndre Levy (quad) has been missing since Week 1 and cornerback Darius Slay has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. The changing personnel on defense is a key reason why the Lions rank in the bottom half of the league in most defensive categories. Detroit’s upcoming bye week couldn’t have come at a better time.

Calvin Johnson’s retirement really hasn’t impacted the offense. Rather than force the ball Johnson, Matthew Stafford has been able to better spread the field to a variety of targets including Marvin Jones, Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate. Tight end Eric Ebron has started to evolve into a reliable option over Read more

College Football Betting: A look back at Alabama's Game of the Year lines

11.07.2016     09:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Let's go back and look at how "discounted" the Golden Nugget's Game of the Year lines where on Alabama. Of the Crimson Tide's six lines games thus far, the Golden Nugget was on average 8.8 points "short" compared to CRIS's closing number. Golden Nugget's numbers, which are posted in early June, have zero impact on the actual market, but it's interesting to see the nation's top team that far removed from their actual power rating. You'd think that Alabama would be the one team to "overinflate" considering its pedigree.

Alabama at Ole Miss
Golden Nugget: Alabama -6
CRIS Closer: Alabama -11

College Football Betting Preview: Washington Huskies at California Golden Bears

11.04.2016     10:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Washington at California
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Washington -15.5 O/U 77.5
CRIS Current: Washington -17 O/U 76.5
Recommendation: California

There was a time, earlier in my handicapping career when I was fixated on taking strong defensive underdogs in college football; teams that could cover pointspreads without having to put up touchdowns in bunches. But that era of college football ended (without much fan fare from the betting markets), with the advent of the high octane spread offense, like the one Sonny Dykes is running at Cal these days. 

In the football universe circa 2016, my entire thought process involving bigger underdogs has flipped from where it was 15 years ago.  In the modern world, I want my underdogs to be able to score early and often, even if they are defensively weak.  Teams that can put up points in bunches tend to be live underdogs, capable of trading points OR coming through the backdoor should they struggle early.

Underdogs of seven points or more are 4-1 ATS in Cal games this year, with the Bears unable to cover bigger Read more

NFL Gambling Alert: Roethlisberger upgraded to probable vs. Baltimore

11.04.2016     10:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Reports are plentiful that Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will start Sunday's game at Baltimore. Big Ben injured his knee during the Steelers' 30-15 Week 3 loss at Miami. He didn't play in Week 7's 26-17 loss vs. New England. Pittsburgh heads into Sunday off a bye week. Despite being listed as "probable" sportsbooks have been reluctant to post a line on the game.

NFL Handicapping: Minnesota OC Norv Turner resigns

11.02.2016     09:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After a perfect 5-0 SU/ATS start, the Minnesota Vikings have shown some vulnerability the past two weeks with losses to Philadelphia and Chicago. Heading into the bye week, you could almost sense rough waters were ahead as the Vikings were +11 in turnover margin and had some of the worst rushing numbers in the NFL. Against the Eagles, they coughed it up four times and against the Bears they managed only 57 yards on 18 carries. The two showings were dismal enough that offensive coordinator Norv Turner resigned. Pat Shurmur will serve as the interim offensive coordinator. Minnesota's next two opponents, Detroit and Washington, rank 22nd and 28th respectively against the run.
