SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at some of the early moves in the Week 11 college football betting markets.

Bowling Green at Akron
CRIS Opener: Akron -5

UL-Monroe at Appalachian State
CRIS Opener: Appalachian State -2.5
CRIS Current: Appalachian State -3.5

Michigan at Northwestern

Comment: Amazing what a few weeks can do to the perception of a team. Northwestern beat Penn State and Wisconsin while Michigan had lost three straight.

Duke at Syracuse

NBA Gambling Update: Oklahoma City's Westbrook out but upcoming schedule favorable

10.31.2014     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Things have certainly gone south in a hurry for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kevin Durant is out, various role players are banged up, and now Russell Westbrook is on the shelf with a broken hand. The betting markets have already shown their anti-Thunder hand with big moves against the team their first two games. Perhaps they can weather the storm until Durant and Westbrook return thanks to a favorable upcoming schedule. From now through mid-December, when the duo is expected to return, the Thunder play 10 games against the Eastern Conference and avoid Western Conference contenders Portland, San Antonio, Dallas, and the Los Angeles Clippers. They also get Houston, Golden State, and Phoenix at home.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs

Buffalo at Toronto O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Buffalo +1.5 -155


It's never a great idea to lay big juice in the NHL, and that is what teams will be doing all season against the Buffalo Sabres.  The sportsbooks have made it known that they're not afraid to make teams -300 or greater favorites against the Sabres as evidenced by Buffalo's latest West Coast trip.  Buffalo's is coming off a solid 2-1 victory in San Jose on Saturday afternoon. The Sabres come back East to face the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight in what should be a tight checking affair.  Buffalo coach Ted Nolan is happy with his team's progression despite their record, ''The last three games in particular, our work ethic is improving, as a result our play is getting better. One thing we learned, hopefully, is if you work, good things happen. That's the way we're going to have to win this season.''  Toronto is struggling almost as much as Buffalo to score goals.  They are just 1-4 on home ice this season and have mustered only 2 goals in their last two home games.  Anytime you can get a goal and a half for this cheap of a price against a team struggling to score Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Previewing the NBA Season O/U Wins market

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Halloween week and the brand spankin’ new NBA season is upon us.  Some things have changed dramatically, most notably Lebron leaving Miami for a return trip to Cleveland.  That sets the books up for a real beating if the Cavs win the title next June since the Cavs opened as high as 60:1 before their enormous talent upgrade. 

Other things remain exactly the same, like the fact that the West is much, much stronger than the East, just as it has been since the Bulls run of dominance with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen ended 17 years ago.  Let’s take a look at the upcoming NBA season from a betting perspective.

Other than the Cavs, many of the top contenders for the title remain the same.  The Spurs, Clippers, Thunder and Bulls are the only other teams besides Cleveland to be priced at less than 10:1 to win the title next June; all elite teams from last year. 

The top two teams in the East from 2013-24 – Miami and Indiana – both took major offseason hits, with the Heat losing LeBron and the Pacers losing Lance Stephenson to free agency and Paul George to a broken leg.  Oklahoma City, Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils at Washington Huskies

Arizona State at Washington
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -3.5 O/U 62.5
CRIS Current: Arizona Sate -3.5 O/U 62
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Arizona State -2
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Arizona State

As of this writing it is still unclear whether Washington QB Cyler Miles (concussion) will be available for this contest. Through Wednesday practice, backup redshirt freshman Troy Williams had taken all the first team snaps and this would be his first ever college start (he went 5-of-10, for 37 yards last week in relief of Miles). In addition, the Huskies’ offensive line and defensive backfield have struggled to date and they’ll face an Arizona State team which is 8-0 against them L8T and will have their starting QB Taylor Kelly back from injury. At 1-2 in Pac-12 play, these are the home games inside the conference that new head coach Chris Petersen was hired to Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFC News and Notes

Atlanta Falcons
Since blowing out Tampa Bay on national TV in Week 3, the Atlanta Falcons have looked nothing short of awful.  A team that made it to the NFC Championship Game two years ago is now entrenched in a four game skid; picking up right where they left off last year when they went 4-12 and ranked among the most disappointing teams in football.

All four losses during this SU and ATS skid have come by double digit margins.  The Falcons certainly aren’t going to win many defensive struggles – their stop unit has allowed 24+ six times in seven ballgames this year, a mediocre defense on a good day.  But many pundits thought the Falcons would be good enough to trade points with most of their foes.  That simply hasn’t been the case, in large part, due to cluster injuries on the offensive line, with backup center Peter Konz the latest to go down.

Matt Ryan was sacked five times and hit nine times in Atlanta’s loss to Baltimore on Sunday, while throwing for a season low in yards. "When you go out there and get beat soundly, I think everybody knows we've got to play better across the board. Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts

Cincinnati at Indianapolis
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Indianapolis -3 O/U 49
CRIS Current: Indianapolis -3 O/U 49.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Indianapolis
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Indianapolis

The Bengals went into their bye week at 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS, in large part because their defense dominated all three of those early season contests (wins over the Ravens, Titans and Falcons).  But in two games since their bye week, Marvin Lewis’s defense has been positively torched, allowing 80 points and 936 yards to the Patriots and Panthers.   The season long stats still show the Bengals with a top 10 defense on a yards-per-play basis, allowing 5.3 yards per opposing snap.  But those numbers were elite two weeks ago; not anywhere near elite today.  That being said, Cinci still ranks #2 in the NFL in yards per play differential; in large part due to the big play ability from Read more

College Football Betting Preview: New Mexico State Aggies at Idaho Vandals

10.15.2014     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly

New Mexico State at Idaho
Saturday, 2 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Idaho -4 O/U 67.5
CRIS Current: Idaho -4 O/U 66.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Idaho -3.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Over

The Idaho Vandals celebrate homecoming as they play host to the New Mexico State Aggies in a Sun Belt clash of bottom dwellers. It’s a unique scenario where the winless Vandals are 4-point favorites but perhaps warranted considering NMSU has allowed 41.8 ppg to FBS competition. But that horrific number isn’t that far removed from the home side which under the same parameters has allowed 39.2 ppg.  Even more alarming is 11 of their 12 combined games vs. FBS came against “mid-major teams.”

With two weak defenses the question now becomes are the offenses good enough to take advantage? I see promise with Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan who in his first season has completed Read more

Georgia at Missouri
Saturday, 9 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -3 O/U 62
CRIS Current: Georgia -2.5 O/U 59.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Georgia -3
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Missouri

Two teams looking to stay in the mix for the SEC East title clash this weekend Columbia. The big news is obviously the suspension of Georgia’s Todd Gurley. There not be a greater impact running back for any team in the country than Gurley. His ability to run the football has thus far been able to offset some of the uneven performances from quarterback Hutson Mason. Mason has thrown for only 137.4 ypg and despite completing 68% of his passes most of them are of the short to intermediate variety. He’s still developing and hasn’t been able to consistently deliver when asked to stretch the field. I don’t normally overreact to the loss of a running back and freshman Nick Chubb has promise but Read more
