College Football Gambling: Injury-riddled Minnesota prompts TCU steam

09.09.2014     01:58 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Big steam play in the college football betting markets with TCU played up from -8 to as high as -14.5 vs. Minnesota. Much of the move was based on Golden Gopher injuries. Starting quarterback Mitch Leidner is questionable to play due to a strained MCL. Redshirt freshman Chris Streveler (1 career pass attempt) is Leidner's backup. They have also lost five players to ACL injuries, including two starters. As a result, the team is expected to play a handful of freshmen vs. TCU. The Horned Frogs are coming in off of a bye week.


“Any time you have a knee [injury], you’re concerned,” coach Jerry Kill said Sunday, while awaiting an update from the medical staff. “We haven’t had a lot of good luck [with recent knee injuries].”

Sports Betting Update: Monmouth Park hopes to take NFL bets this Sunday

09.09.2014     09:37 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

New Jersey is expected to start offering sports betting as soon as this weekend. If not then within the next 30 days. Monmouth Park has reportedly been in talks with sportsbook heavyweight William Hill.


“I got calls from people who wanted to come to the track last night to bet,” he said.

He added that if the book is open Sunday – the main day for heavily bet NFL football games – it would probably be a “very basic operation.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Under- and over-reacting to early season football results

09.08.2014     07:50 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I probably heard the same expression 20 times last week: ‘Don’t overreact to Week 1 results.’   It’s one of those handicapping mantras that we hear every year right around this time – the very beginning of football season. 

In basketball or baseball there’s no week off between the first two games and the early season betting markets don’t react intensely off a single poor performance.  But for football – both NFL and college – the prevailing conventional wisdom is that Week 1 results are a thing to take with a grain of salt.

The concept certainly makes sense.  Coaches – especially college football coaches – will tell you that they expect their biggest improvement between Week 1 and Week 2.  Without the benefit of preseason games or even scrimmages against opposing squads, teams often ‘work out the kinks’ and ‘get up to game speed’ in their initial contest.  The team you expected to see this year (at least for bettors who do some homework and have opinions coming into the campaign) might not be the team you saw in Week 1, but there’s Read more

NFL Handicapping: League gets the Elo Ratings treatment

09.05.2014     11:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stat nerds will love this. FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver has created Elo Ratings for the NFL. Here's a link to Silver discussing the science behind it and another link to the ratings. His "spread" on last night's Packers-Seattle game was -10. One of the biggest discrepancies for Sunday's games is Detroit -1.5 vs. New York. The market currently has the Lions priced as a 6-point home favorite.


Do you also account for margin of victory?

Affirmative. I took some inspiration from the soccer ratings, which account for goal differential in addition to the game result. But this is one of the more complicated parts.

For the NFL, I start by adding one point to team’s margin of victory and then take its natural logarithm. Then I multiply that result by the K value. That means I’m more moved by big wins than narrow ones, although there are diminishing returns. I’m not so impressed by the fifth touchdown when a team is ahead 28-0.

College Football Betting Preview: Arkansas State Red Wolves at Tennessee Volunteers

Arkansas State at Tennessee
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -17.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Tennessee -17 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Tennessee -17.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Tennessee

A Sun Belt versus SEC pairing at Neyland Stadium,one of college football's top venues, pits teams off lopsided season-opening wins. Butch Jones' Tennessee Volunteers mowed over Utah State, 38-7, Sunday, while first-year head coach Blake Anderson and the Arkansas State Red Wolves disposed of FCS opponent Montana State by a 37-10 margin one day earlier.

Attempting to reconstruct a program short on SEC caliber talent following Derek Dooley's brief tenure, Jones, in his second season, has displayed the ability to recruit at a high level and just might bring the Volunteers back near the glory days of the past if given enough time. In its opener against Utah State, Tennessee played a Read more

NFL Gambling Update: Carolina's Newton upgraded to probable

09.05.2014     07:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Carolina at Tampa Bay -2.5 O/U 39

According to reports, Carolina's Cam Newton (rib) is "on pace" to start Week 1's opener at Tampa Bay. They Panthers won't make it official, however, until Sunday. Carolina opened as a 2-point favorite but since Newton's injury because public, we've seen a steady flow of Tampa Bay money. Offshore sportsbooks 5Dimes and Jazz currently have the Bucs -3 (ev).


"How I'm feeling right now, I'm on pace to be ready to go on Sunday.''

Asked what could disrupt that, Newton jokingly said, "Maybe from walking home, somebody wants to [mug] me or something like that. Getting hit by a car. Running away from a tiger. There's a lot of things that could disrupt that pace.''

"It's not just about Game 1, also,'' Rivera said. "Let's be realistic. This is not a sprint,

College Football Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars at Kent State Golden Flashes

South Alabama at Kent State
Saturday, 11 am PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Kent State pk O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: South Alabama -3 O/U 50.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: South Alabama -1.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: South Alabama

South Alabama opens its season on the road against Kent State in Dix Stadium. This will be the second game of the season for the Golden Flashes after being on the wrong side of the 17-14 home contest vs. Ohio. Kent’s offense managed only 294 yards (31 yards rushing) of offense and could not take advantage of four Bobcat turnovers. This shouldn’t come as a surprise after KSU lost its two best offensive linemen and third round draft pick running back Dri Archer. Additionally, the Golden Flashes were without their most touted offensive weapon, 250 pound running back Trayion Durham. He is currently listed as questionable; I don’t believe they would hold him Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Abilene Christian Wildcats at Georgia State Panthers

Abilene Christian at Georgia State
Wednesday, 5 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
Georgia State -5 O/U 63
CRIS Current: Georgia State -4 O/U 60.5
Drew’s Recommendation: Under

If you were to glance at Abilene Christian’s offensive production last year, you would undoubtedly come away impressed. But when you start to dig a little deeper however, you find a couple key stats that stand out. Not accounting for the likes of Concordia-Selma, Houston Baptist, and the Incarnate Word, final scores (84-6, 69-12, 40-6) respectfully, in five of six competitive games last year the Wildcats averaged 2.436 plays per minute of possession. This doesn’t exactly scream that “tempo” is a top priority. With head coach Ken Collums and offensive coordinator Nathan Young returning, I see no reason for this tendency to change. Moreover, they will be breaking in a new quarterback behind virtually an entirely new offensive line. This is not a good combo when trying to replace 4,500 yards and 48 touchdowns of offensive production.

College Football Handicapping: Arizona State's offense ready to peak in third year under Graham

08.26.2014     07:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article about Arizona State's pace of play. Last year the Sun Devils ran an offensive play every 23 seconds which ranked 25th nationally. Head coach Todd Graham said he would like to see one run every 15 seconds which would be about five seconds faster than Oregon and Texas Tech. The isn't going to happen but with this being Graham's third year, there is reason to believe the offense's pace, conditioning, and continuity will be improved.


"Tempo is the key, but you can't hurry up and mess up, either. I want to go as fast as we can (offensively) as long as we're making first downs.

"If you're going three and out, three and out, three and out, I'd like to slow down a little bit. That's just hurrying up to get beat.

"If I go into a game and I feel like we're a lot better than the other team defensively, I'll tell Mike (Norvell), 'Go as fast as you can.' " Graham said. "Mike will tell you, last year against (USC), I was telling him, 'Hey, stop scoring so fast! Slow down!'
