ESPN's gambling coverage starting to irk folks

09.09.2015     10:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With football season underway terms like "pointspread", "underdog", and "cover" get tossed around pretty loosely by bettors and non-bettors alike. ESPN -- and others -- continue to find ways to interject gambling angles into their coverage because let's be honest, there isn't much to talk about when a four touchdown SEC favorite takes on a team from the Sun Belt. But even if the majority embraces the additional way to look at a game, there are still those who don't find it all that amusing -- particularly those affiliated with the schools we bet on and of course the NCAA. 


“Coverage of sports betting has been carefully considered over a long period of time,” the ESPN statement said. “We recognize that fans are increasingly interested in this conversation and that millions engage in legal sports betting. Our coverage has mirrored that larger trend in recent years and this is another step. We will approach this subject the way we do any beat we cover

College Football Betting Preview: Boise State Broncos at BYU Cougars

Boise State at BYU
Saturday, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Boise State -2 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Boise State -3 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Under

A lot of angles to consider with this matchup as Boise State travels to BYU. The biggest of course is the season-ending injury to BYU's Taysom Hill. No doubt Hill was a special player but the Cougars have plenty of experience playing without him and during his absence last season, there wasn't a significant drop off in offensive production. In four games with Hill, BYU averaged 450 ypg and 37.5 ppg. In eight games without Hill, BYU averaged 470 ypg and 39 ppg. Freshman Tanner Mangum is slated to take over for hill. Magnum, who just turned 22 years old, comes in highly regarded.

I have my concerns with Boise State's quarterback Ryan Finley who didn't look particularly comfortable in Week 1's narrow win over Washington. Finely threw for only 129 yards on 26 pass attempts including an interception. It was clear in the second half when the Huskies narrowed the margin that head coach Bryan Harsin didn't have a lot of confidence in his sophomore signal Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Iowa Hawkeyes at Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa at Iowa State
Saturday, 1:45 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Iowa -4.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Iowa -3.5 O/U 52.5
Recommendation: Under

From a historical perspective, it's interesting that this weekend's Iowa-Iowa State game is totaled at 52.5 (opened 54). The two squads obviously play one another each season and over the last 10 seasons, not one game was lined above 49.5. Taking it a step further, of those 10 games, not once did the score top 48 in regulation. And there's a logical reason for this: Iowa, who is usually the stronger of the two teams, tends to play at a slow pace with a focus on running the football.

The question now becomes, has anything changed with either squad to warrant the inflated total? Neither squad is tremendous defensively, though as we saw last season, when healthy and at full strength, the Hawkeyes have the ability to be above average. Over its first five games last year, Iowa allowed 17.2 ppg. It wasn't until they started playing capable and sometimes dynamic offenses that the unit was exposed. I'm not sure Iowa State qualifies as dynamic. Despite playing in a number Read more

College Football Betting Update: Penn State shows no sign of o-line improvement

09.08.2015     07:47 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

So much for an improvement. Penn State made shoring up its offensive line a top priority after 2014's disaster. We won't lay all the blame on the unit during Week 1's loss to Temple, but it certainly was as major issue. The Owls completely dominated the Nittany Lions in the trenches with 10 sacks and only 2.9 yards per carry allowed. PSU has now allowed 54 sacks over its last 14 games.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Power Ratings 1-32

09.07.2015     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL regular season starts on Thursday.  Here’s how I have the 32 teams ranked heading into the campaign, with a quick blurb each squad.

1. New England Patriots - With Tom Brady set to open the season as the starting quarterback, the defending champs are the team to beat, worthy of my #1 ranking heading into the regular season.

2. Seattle Seahawks - Seattle enjoyed the best yards-per-rush differential between offense and defense last year, but they’ve got significant offensive line question marks as they head to St Louis for Week 1.

3. Green Bay Packers - The Packers passing game was second to none in the NFL last year, but the loss of Jordy Nelson leaves Aaron Rodgers without his top target for the entire season.

4. Indianapolis Colts - Most elite contenders face a tougher than average schedule because they’ve got to face other contending teams.  Indy, however, plays only four games against playoff teams from last year.

5. Denver Broncos - Peyton Manning is the oldest starting quarterback in the NFL by a wide margin, and he’s coming off a season where his arm strength noticeably declined down the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Longhorns at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Texas at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -8.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -9 O/U 49
Recommendation: Under

The theme of the entire offseason for Texas was the adoption of a new "up-tempo" system. This after the Longhorns averaged 337.3 ypg of total offense in 2014. It's a logical choice considering the current climate of college football and the Big XII in particular but not every move to up-tempo yields instant results like what we witnessed with TCU. Initial reports suggest that the Longhorns aren't really changing the playbook but rather attempting to play at a faster pace. Either way, expect some early season growing pains. And it's not just the offense you worry about. Typically when teams decide more plays and possessions is the route to go, the defense tends to suffer. And defense was the sole reason why Texas was halfway competitive last season.

It was a tale of two seasons for Notre Dame's defense last season. Aided by health, depth, and a favorable slate in terms of opponents' offensive potency, the Irish had the look of a top 10 unit. But Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide

Wisconsin vs. Alabama (at Dallas)
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -9.5 O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -12 O/U 49
Recommendation: Under

Wisconsin has gone through a major transformation since the last time the Badgers took the field; an overtime win against Auburn in the Outback Bowl.  Head coach Gary Anderson left Madison for Corvallis, leaving the program in the hands of Paul Chryst, who went 19-20 in three years as the head coach at Pitt.  Chryst has brought in a new offensive coordinator, Joe Rudolph.

A new coach and a new offense is only one piece of the puzzle for the Badgers.  Yes, Wisconsin returns senior quarterback Joel Stave, but Stave is a game manager on a good day, a long way from being an elite level QB.  Last year, he completed only 110 passes, throwing more interceptions than touchdowns.  Wisconsin’s receiving corps isn’t littered with playmakers, and they’ve got a big void to fill at running back, with Melvin Gordon going in the first round of the NFL draft.

But the biggest problem for Wisconsin heading into this Read more

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets

Philadelphia -5 at NY Jets O/U 44.5
Recommendation: Philadelphia


It’s not hard to make a case for the Eagles in any preseason game.  After all, Philly is 3-0 SU and ATS in the preseason this year, scoring 36 or more points in every game.  Last year, they scored 28+ in every game as well, a consistent offensive juggernaut here in August.   They beat the Jets 37-7 in their preseason finale last year, hanging 568 yards of offense in the process.  And there’s ample reason to expect a similar result tonight.

Let’s start with the fact that the Jets are likely to be a no-show this evening.  First year head coach Todd Bowles isn’t expected to play starters, and his second and third teamers will be playing special teams as well as trying to keep up with Philly’s fast pace:  Bowles:  "It’s going to be tough because they have to play special teams as well as play their position.  So there’s going to be a lot of heavy breathing, but you have to focus in on your assignment and...I want to see if these guys can play."

The Jets have won each of their Read more

Louisville vs. Auburn (at Atlanta)
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Auburn -10.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Auburn -10.5 O/U 56
Recommendation: Under

The Louisville Cardinals and the Auburn Tigers will meet on Saturday in one of the marquee Week 1 matchups.  Both teams will not have to travel far in this neutral site ACC vs. SEC matchup, in fact Auburn playing as the double-digit favorite will only have to make the short 110 mile trip up I-85.  Louisville will attempt to pull off the upset led by its stingy defense that gave up 21.8 points per game and less than 3.3 yards per rush attempt in 2014. The Louisville critics point out that they are only returning four defensive starters, however all four are part of the front seven and three transfers including former Big XII Defensive POY Devonte Fields will make an immediate impact. Both teams have two of the most respected defensive coordinators in the country in Will Muschamp and Todd Grantham. With the addition of Fields and Carl Lawson for Auburn, the talent level rises exponentially on the defensive side of the ball as these are two Read more
