College Football Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Clemson Tigers

Notre Dame at Clemson
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Clemson -1.5 O/U 53
CRIS Current: Clemson pk O/U 54
Recommendation: Clemson

It’s possible that bad weather could take center stage and be the dominant factor in many games along the East Coast this weekend. Current projections call for four consecutive days of rain and varying wind conditions from site to site. Here in Clemson, South Carolina the expected weather concern is rain only but with four straight days of wet weather on Memorial Stadium’s grass surface, you have to handicap how that helps or hinders the fundamentals. Situationally this is a nice spot for Clemson which had two full weeks to prepare for the Fighting Irish but Notre Dame is far more battle tested with their opponent’ average power rating being over 9.5 points stronger than Clemson’s. This game could have major College Football Playoff implications especially for Clemson since this is one of what looks to be two remaining games versus top 15-type teams. With situational angles signaling an advantage to the home team Tigers, let’s look at the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks at Tennessee Volunteers

Arkansas at Tennessee
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee - 6.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Tennessee -6.5 O/U 56
Recommendation: Tennessee
 
This cross division SEC matchup pins two teams desperately needing a conference win.  The Razorbacks, who were originally lined at 8.5 regular season wins, have dropped three in a row, including out of conference losses to Toledo and Texas Tech. Note that they still have upcoming games at Alabama, at LSU, and at Ole Miss. The Volunteers are currently 2-2 with an overtime loss as well last week’s one-point collapse in Gainesville. Both teams have arguably played well enough to be 7-1 combined, instead, reaching the postseason is far from guaranteed.

The Volunteers have yet to face a team that runs an offensive scheme similar to that of the Razorbacks. Arkansas is a tough hard nosed running team that leans on their offensive line to control clock. They feature multiple offensive linemen that have a shot to play at the next level, although the run game hasn’t been as dominant as projected. Last season, Jonathan Williams and Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Georgia Bulldogs

Alabama at Georgia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -2.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Georgia -2.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Over

Georgia's defense hasn't been tested at all this season with three games against the pedestrian offenses of UL-Monroe, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina. Keep in mind, the Bulldogs have replaced five of their front seven from a year ago. And last year's defense didn't exactly hold up well against the better offenses of the SEC. For starters, they didn't play Mississippi State and Alabama who ranked second and fourth respectively in SEC play in terms of total offense. The did shut down Auburn but the game was somewhat of an aberration as the Tigers coughed up the football three times. Against South Carolina, who ranked third, Georgia allowed 6.21 yards per play and 38 points. Arkansas, Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky all topped 30+ points as well.

Dating back to last season, we've seen Alabama's defense struggle against dynamic offenses. Auburn hung 44 points and 630 yards and Ohio State moved the ball practically at will en route to a 42-35 bowl win. And two Read more

College Football Handicapping: Tennessee seeks better offensive balance

09.30.2015     07:39 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Through four games, Tennessee's run/pass ratio is extremely lopsided with 209 rush attempts to only 102 pass attempts. A lot of that was dictated by the opposition as the Vols had big leads against Bowling Green and Western Carolina and were rightfully timid to challenge Florida's top-tier secondary. Saturday would serve as a good opportunity to get the passing game going based on Arkansas's defensive numbers. Against Texas Tech, the Razorbacks allowed 315 yards at 10.2 yards per attempt. There were similar struggles against Texas A&M with the Aggies throwing for 358 yards at a staggering 12.8 yards per attempt.


"Every game has a story to it," DeBord said Tuesday. "The story of that game was we were running the ball very effectively. There were times I could have probably gone to the passing game, but when the running game’s going good, stay with the running game."

"We want to be able to throw the ball more down the field," Jones said. "That's really a big part of us

College Football Betting Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils at UCLA Bruins

Arizona State at UCLA
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -14 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: UCLA -13.5 O/U 58
Recommendation: Over

In two games against top-tier competition, Arizona State was completely outplayed. In Week 1, Texas A&M outgained the Sun Devils 425 yards (5.31 ypp) to 291 yards (3.55) in a 38-17 loss. And last week, they were again outgained by over a yard per play against USC; saving some face statistically (455 total yards) by picking up yards during garbage time. The conundrum with the Sun Devils is they have a quarterback who can't run and no elite level receivers to offset it in the passing game. It also doesn't help that ASU has coughed up the football on nine occasions including four times against USC. This was a squad that had only 13 turnovers all of last season and a +14 turnover margin. Now after being embarrassed on their home turf they hit the highway to face a team that beat them 62-27 last season.

UCLA had plenty go its way in last week's 56-30 blowout at Arizona. The Bruins forced three turnovers and the Wildcats lost quarterback Anu Solomon in the second Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Early season college football money burners

09.28.2015     08:16 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in my Wiseguy Report, I look an in-depth look at the 13 teams that started the college football season 3-0 ATS.   In general, those teams had quite a few commonalities:

“Non-descript teams that aren’t getting much hype or love from the preseason betting markets, the preseason publications or the preseason talking heads.  Teams coming off a bad bowl loss or a late season collapse are definitely worth an extra look, as are teams replacing an experienced, but perhaps underachieving, quarterback.”

I concluded the article with this paragraph: “These early season ATS outliers are NOT likely to continue their red hot runs.  The under-the-radar concept when it comes to finding strong ATS teams in early season play holds sway when it comes to early season results as well.  Many, if not most, of the elite ATS teams in college football this year have already lost at least once against the spread, putting them squarely under-the-radar as potential elite ATS squads moving forward."

If you bet on all 13 of the teams that entered last weekend with a 3-0 ATS mark, you lost money.  Read more

College Football Handicapping: Plenty of true freshmen quarterbacks have taken snaps

09.28.2015     07:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As many as 24 true freshmen have taken snaps this season with a handful currently starting or splitting time. Below are the current stats for those true frosh who have attempted 25 or more passes. Most are playing/starting out of necessity though a few teams are committed to their young signal caller. Washington's Jake Browning and UCLA's Josh Rosen have started since Week 1 and have had their ups and downs. Both were two of the nation's top recruits. Boise State's Brett Rypien was also highly touted and looked very sharp in last week's road win at Virginia. It was only one game but perhaps it was addition by subtraction for the Broncos as original starter Ryan Finley struggled (117.20 rating) prior to getting injured. Another one-game body of work but a positive one as South Carolina's Lorenzo Nunez threw for 184 yards and rushed for 123 yards in a 31-14 win over UCF. We'll see how he does this weekend on the road in Columbia against an SEC defense.



Syracuse - Eric Dungey, 21-36, 58%, 5 TD, 0 INT, 204.03 rating
Boise State - Brett Rypien, 32-44, 73%, 3 TD, 0 INT, 180.57 rating
South Carolina - Lorenzo Nunez, 16-27, 59%, 2 TD, 0 INT, 146.54 Read more

College Football Betting: Alabama in ultra-rare role of underdog vs. Georgia

09.28.2015     06:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Nick Saban won't need to search far to find bulletin board material for Saturday's game at Georgia. Alabama is currently being priced as an underdog for the first time since the George W. Bush administration. That's right, bettors. On December 6, 2008, Alabama was catching +10 vs. Florida in the SEC Championship. The Gators won and covered 31-20. As for this week's trip to Athens, Georgia opened and remains a -2.5 favorite.
