NFL Handicapping: Wild Card road teams feature experienced quarterbacks

01.05.2016     10:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the storylines for this weekend's NFL Wild Card round is quarterback postseason starts. As mentioned by Teddy Covers on Monday's Sportsmemo Podcast, the four road teams feature signal callers that have combined for 37 career playoff starts. Ben Roethlisberger has made 15 postseason starts with a 10-5 record. Russell Wilson has made eight (6-2). Aaron Rodgers has made 11 (6-5). And Alex SMith has made three starts (1-2); two with San Francisco and one with Kansas City.

On the flip side, all four home teams have quarterbacks who have never made a postseason start with Houston's Brian Hoyer, Cincinnati's AJ McCarron, Minnesota's Teddy Bridgewater, and Washington's Kirk Cousins. With the exception of McCarron (three career starts), Hoyer, Bridgewater, and Cousins have combined for 79 career starts but again, none took place in the postseason.

Using Strength of Schedule to Handicap the Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs

01.05.2016     07:57 AM     Printer Friendly
The theory is actually quite simple; since 2002, teams with a higher Strength of Schedule (using Sagarin’s Ratings) are a remarkable 37-15 straight up and 37-14-1 against the spread (73% winners) regardless of price and location. Even more amazing is that teams with a SOS differential of 10 or more went 23-4 SU, 22-4-1 ATS (85% winners). Taking it step further, teams with a better SOS that are underdogs went 15-11 SU, 19-6 ATS. Underdogs with a SOS rating of 10 or better went 9-4 SU and 10-3 ATS. This is not a perfect science when it comes to grading plays. For example, two years ago, the Colts opened -2.5 but closed +2. The 49ers also closed -3.5 at a number of shops which would have resulted in an ATS loss. That said, with 13 years of results, this is one of the strongest publically known NFL trends available.

There wasn’t much upheaval as the league added the Houston Texans to the AFC and Seattle switched to the NFC. Two new divisions were created as the league kept the integrity of the established divisional rivalries pretty Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Clemson vs. Alabama Betting Preview

01.04.2016     08:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One thing has legitimately changed in the four team playoff era, compared to the BCS Championship era that just ended prior to last year.  Instead of having three weeks to prepare for the title game, teams now have three weeks to prepare for a semi-final game, with a much shorter turnaround time prior to the title game.  The three previous national titles that Nick Saban won at Alabama all came under at least somewhat different circumstances than the title game they’ll play in next Monday.

When we take a look back at the national championship teams over the last decade, we can get a decent idea of the commonalities between those teams and use that to project forward for this year. Texas in 2005, Florida in 2006, LSU in 2007, Florida in 2008, Alabama in 2009, Auburn in 2010, Alabama in 2011 and 2012, Florida State in 2013 and Ohio State in 2014 combine to give us a profile worth noting.

The #1 commonality the last ten champions had is elite level talent.  That may sound obvious – it is obvious – but there are metrics worthy of mention that give an advantage to Alabama over Clemson.  Each of the last ten champs had a recruiting Read more

NFL Gambing Preview: Detroit Lions at Chicgo Bears

01.01.2016     08:36 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Chicago -1.5 O/U 46.5
CRIS Current: Chicago -1 O/U 46
Recommendtion: Detroit

The Lions are 5-2 since their 1-7 start.  Two of their losses were complete screw jobs. Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary pass to beat them following a tough penalty call on the previous play was brutal.  So was their loss at Seattle, with a dubious non-call at the goal line in the final seconds on Monday Night Football.  Overall, Detroit is a better team than their record would indicate.  That’s not the case for the Bears.
 
Detroit has gotten much, much better since offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was fired mid-season, replaced by Jim Bob Cooter.  It’s surely worth noting that Matthew Stafford has a 16-2 TD-INT ratio and a 108.7 QB rating since Cooter took over, in sharp contrast to his 13-11 TD-INT ratio and his 84.1 QB rating under Lombardi.
 
The Lions have won on the road at Green Bay and New Orleans; a veteran team capable of taking care of business in hostile environments.  And frankly, I’m not Read more

Fiesta Bowl Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

12.30.2015     09:16 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Fiesta Bowl - Glendale, AZ
Notre Dame vs. Ohio State
Friday, Janaury 1, 10 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -6.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Ohio State -6 O/U 56.5
Recommendation: Notre Dame

From tradition, competitive and ability standpoints, this is a terrific draw for the Fiesta Bowl. My power ratings suggest that these are two of the top eight teams in the nation so of the 38 non-playoff Bowls, it’s as close to a CFB Playoff caliber game as there is on the schedule. The game does not feature any real situational angle but you could make a small case that Notre Dame has a motivational advantage since the Buckeyes are a bit disappointed to not be in the four team playoff. However, this New Year’s Day stage and this opponent likely negate that. Fundamental matchups should determine the best way to play this one so let’s take a look at a couple keys.

It’s been a tough month for Ohio State which has seen some personnel losses due to injury and off field issues. A team imposed suspension will cost them starting sr. DT Adolphus Washington and combined with the injury Read more
