College Football Betting Preview: UCLA Bruins at Stanford Cardinal

UCLA at Stanford
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener
: Stanford -7 O/U 55
CRIS Current: Stanford -6 O/U 54
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Stanford -6.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: UCLA

The PAC-12 is positively loaded this year, #2 in the country behind only the mighty SEC in conference strength according to my numbers.  Saturday’s Stanford vs. UCLA showdown gives us a clear example of how good this conference really is!  Remember, neither squad was the preseason favorite to win their respective divisions (USC and Oregon), and the trio of Oregon State, Washington and Arizona State are all capable of beating anyone in the league on any given Saturday.   So while Stanford and UCLA provide a battle of Top 15 teams for ABC on Saturday, even the winner of this matchup is not going to have an easy task of holding on to that lofty rankings throughout the course of the Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers

Baltimore at Pittsburgh
Sunday, 1:25 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Pittsburgh -2.5 O/U 40.5
CRIS Current: Pittsburgh -2.5 O/U 40.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baltimore -0.5
Marty Otto's Recommendation: Use Baltimore +8.5 at part of a 2-team, 6-point teaser

These AFC North rivals must be disappointed with the way they’ve started their seasons. The Ravens came into 2013 fresh off a Super Bowl victory having signed Joe Flacco to a monster deal while shuffling up plenty of faces both on offense and defense. For the Steelers there was guarded optimism that with a little luck in the health department their 8-8 season from 2012 could be improved upon to get back into the playoffs in 2013. So far it hasn’t all gone to plan for either side.

The Steelers used their bye week to good effect putting together a game plan and executing at a high level. The defense held the Jets to just six points and forced a Read more

College Football Handicapping: Community Power Ratings Week 8

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Going forward, let’s just call these “community” Power Ratings. Feel free to post comments below or alert me on twitter (@jefffogle) if you think we have a misread on a team. The numbers already reflect a composite of market influences, stats, and college football discussions anyway. We’ll just call them “community” rankings for this sport.

Some of you who have known me awhile will recognize this from past years in sports betting forums. Though, back then I was trying to get a “power of the collective” thing going in the NFL. It generally ended up being my read of the markets with three of four nice posters stepping into say “thank you” afterward. Not really the COMMUNITY effort I was hoping for. But, a lot of people are shy, and just want to see some numbers anyway. I’m going to stick with “Estimated Market” ratings right now for the Read more

College Football Betting News and Notes - Week 7

Three weeks, three total meltdowns for Air Force in the second half. The end result for the Falcons was 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS.

at Nevada - AFA had a 35-24 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Nevada scored back-to-back touchdowns with six minutes remaining to win 45-42.

at Navy - AFA led 10-7 at half but was outscored 21-0 after the break and not only lost straight up but failed to cover +13.5.

vs. San Diego State - Catching +3.5, AFA was all but handed a pointspread cover with a 20-6 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Three SDSU touchdowns later the final score read 27-20.

It was only one game, and against a porous Arizona defense, but USC looked a lot more aggressive following the departure of Lane Kiffin. Cody Kessler averaged nearly 10 yards per attempt and the Trojans ran 75 plays and racked up 546 yards. Also note that after feasting on a handful of sub-par offenses, USC's defense allowed both Arizona State and Arizona to move the ball will relative ease (1,120 yards, 7.6 ypp combined). It'll be interesting to see what stop unit shows up this weekend in South Bend. In theory, the Irish should be the type of offense the Trojans can contain. Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC News and Notes from Week 6

10.14.2013     07:09 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. Teddy watches games all day on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps don’t necessarily have. This week: AFC thoughts and opinions from Week 6.

Denver Broncos - This offense does NOT take downfield shots; arguably the best 'dink and dunk' attack I've ever seen. The passing game is just lots and lots of well executed short passes thrown by a remarkably accurate quarterback. Even on a day where the Broncos were clearly a little bit flat in a legitimate sandwich spot against the worst team in the league, the Broncos still had five offensive touchdowns compared to only three punts and zero field goal attempts.

But this secondary is officially a problem area, even with Champ Bailey active today. We all saw what Tony Romo did to them last week. Here, Chad Henne was converting on 3rd and 25’s and Justin Blackmon was catching 14 balls for 190 yards. Rahim Moore was dropping sure interceptions, they were getting gashed on the ground, and the pass rush wasn't there. To make matters worse, Denver has a cluster injury Read more

Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. Teddy watches games all day on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps don’t necessarily have. This week: NFC thoughts and opinions from Week 5.

Chicago Bears - Chicago entered the game with only six sacks on the season, a notable weakness on a defense that's heavily reliant on creating turnovers. They got a little bit of pressure on Drew Brees here, but not enough. The Bears played a lot of Cover-2 today and it gave the Saints fits for a while, forcing Brees into dink-and-dunk’ mode. But Sean Payton made play calling adjustments, and Chicago’s defense didn’t adjust back, leaving Jimmy Graham in store for a huge afternoon.

Marc Trestman was a pointspread monster during his tenure with the Montreal Alouettes in one role in particular: coming off a loss. In his first NFL try in that same role, that success did not translate.

For the second straight week, this rebuilt offensive line got eaten up for extended stretches. Jay Cutler was under constant pressure and Matt Forte had no room to run. Even Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Kansas State Wildcats at Oklahoma State Cowboys

Kansas State at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN Game Plan
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma State -14 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Oklahoma State -14 O/U 59
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -11.5
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Kansas State

Oklahoma State comes in off of a disappointing loss last week at West Virginia. The Cowboys dropped a 30-21 decision to a team that had struggled mightily and suddenly OSU does not appear to be the Big XII favorites any more. When you examine their results prior to the West Virginia loss, there was really nothing that showed why Oklahoma State was ranked 11th in the country. They were very sloppy in a 21-3 win over Mississippi State in Week 1 then beat up on cupcakes UTSA and Lamar in their next two games.

This year’s Oklahoma State team is definitely not as potent offensively as it has been in years past, which is understandable Read more

TCU at Oklahoma
Saturday, 4 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -10 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -9.5 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating:  TCU -11
Rob Veno's Recommendation: TCU

This would appear to be a difficult sandwich spot for Oklahoma. The Sooners are off of a convincing win and cover at Notre Dame and they have arch rival Texas on deck. Any letdown by OU against this TCU team figures to be harmful. Sooners quarterback Blake Bell has seemed to settle into the starting role quite comfortably over the last two games, directing the offense to 1,057 total yards and 79 points. Bell has sparked the passing attack by completing 73.1% of his passes (49-of-67) for 645 yards, six touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

On the ground, Oklahoma has averaged 203 yards per game on 4.72 per carry. The 86 rush attempts and 67 pass attempts show terrific play calling balance. The dual threat Bell had 22 Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 6 Injury Report

10.02.2013     12:31 PM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas quarterback David Ash has been ruled ‘out’ of Thursday’s game at Iowa State due to lingering concussion symptoms. Ash sustained his first concussion in a 40-21 loss at BYU in Week 2. After sitting out a loss to Ole Miss, he returned to start in a 31-21 win over Kansas State. However, Ash suffered a second head injury against the Wildcats and didn’t return in the second half. This means Case McCoy will get the starting nod for the second time this season. Ash has seven touchdown passes compared to two interceptions this season, while McCoy has one TD pass and hasn’t been intercepted. Also, Texas’s best wide receiver, Mike Davis, is ‘questionable’ against the Cylcones. Davis sprained his ankle in the loss to Ole Miss and didn’t play against Kansas St. In the first three games, Davis had 20 receptions for 223 yards and four TDs.

Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen returned to the lineup in last week’s 45-33 loss to Texas A&M. Allen threw for 282 yards and three TDs against the Aggies, but he was picked off twice. The Razorbacks took the cash as 13.5-point home underdogs. Allen missed a 28-24 loss at Read more

College Football Betting: West Virginia offense, Trickett remain a work in progress

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
West Virginia at Baylor -27.5 O/U 68.5

It wasn't pretty but West Virginia's offense looked much improved last week with Clint Trickett under center. And by much improved we mean that Trickett at least showed the ability to throw the ball downfield, something the Mountaineers were unable to do with Ford Childress. Against Oklahoma State, eight WVU players caught passes and all of them had longs of 11 yards or more including three for 38 or more. Trickett however was nicked up during the win and has been limited in practice this week. And according to Dana Holgorsen, Trickett is still way behind in terms of learning the offense.


“View it as learning sign language,” said Holgorsen when asked to explain the process of relaying signs from coach to quarterback. “If you wanted to Read more
