College Football Betting: Clemson miffed about being an underdog to Alabama

01.08.2016     08:28 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
No matter what the sport, for title games and championships, the media likes to ask the underdog what it feels like to be, well, the underdog. According to one Clemson player, it's nothing new. Not that he should be able to rattle off the pointspread of every game this season but the Tigers were favored in every regular season game as well as the ACC Championship. He was correct in pointing out that the Tigers were dogs to Oklahoma in the last two meetings and obviously won outright.  Clemson is currently a +6.5/+7 underdog to Alabama for Monday’s CFB Championship.


“You go back to every big game we played this year, we were underdogs,” redshirt junior Travis Blanks said. “Notre Dame, Florida State, just go down the list. Some people picked us as an underdog in the ACC Championship against North Carolina. Oklahoma, this year and last year. It’s just all bologna.”

Florida -110 at Ottawa O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Florida


If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em and right now the Florida Panthers are a team that can’t be beaten. The red hot Panthers head to Ottawa looking for their 11th consecutive win which has already been established as a franchise record winning streak. Three Florida players were named to the All-Star ame yesterday: Jaromir Jagr at the ripe age of 43, goaltender Roberto Luongo and 19-year-old defenseman Aaron Ekblad. I can’t think of three bigger reasons why Florida has surged to this 10-game winning streak and risen to the top of the Atlantic Division. Jagr has played like he is 20 years younger than he actually is registering 14 goals and 29 points in 37 game. Ekblad is a dominant defenseman already at his age at both ends of the ice and has a team leading +16 rating in plus/minus. Luongo has turned back the clock in between the pipes with one of his best seasons in recent memory. He enters tonight with sparkling numbers including a 2.06 GAA and .930 save percentage. Jonathan Huberdeau and Aleksander Barkov have also been integral components to Florida’s recent Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Purdue not pleased with offensive efficiency

01.07.2016     07:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Purdue may have arguably the best defense in the country but head coach Matt Painter ain't happy. Last week, the Boilermakers ran out to a 37-20 halftime lead against Iowa but proceeded to allowed 50 in the second half. It resulted in a 70-63 home loss. Painter said that it wasn't so much poor defense as it was poor offense that played a role in the meltdown. Purdue plays host to Michigan tonight.


"Our offense has been poor,"  Painter said. "We haven't taken care of the basketball and our shot selection hasn’t been great. Any time you're in transition more and you can’t set your defense, you're not going to be be as efficient."

"We had guys that didn’t play with poise; didn’t show their experience," Painter said. "Nothing that happened in the second half didn’t happen in the first half.  When there's something that needs to be adjusted, you make that adjustment at halftime. When you've held somebody to 20 points and

College Basketball Handicapping: Florida hanging its hat on defense

01.06.2016     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some good quotes from Florida head coach Michael White on his team's strengths and weaknesses. The Gators are the only team in Ken Pom's top 25 outside the top 100 nationally in offensive efficiency. In fact, of the 25 teams, UF ranks 107th (1.06) and the next closest is Purdue at 54th (1.09). Where Florida makes up for it is on the defensive end with the fourth-best defensive efficiency in the country (0.90). But perhaps tonight offers a decent chance for the Gators to put the ball in the bucket. Against its last four power conference opponents, Tennessee allowed 82 (Nebraska), 94 (Butler), 86 (Gonzaga), and 83 (Auburn).


“When we’ve approached games where we’ve spent too much emphasis on offense — where maybe you have guys, again, new to a staff, new to a style, new plays, seven new players — when we’re thinking about scoring, how many shots I can get tonight or how many I can score, certain things like that with an inexperienced team, it has set us up for poor performances in the

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Clemson vs. Alabama Betting Preview

01.04.2016     08:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One thing has legitimately changed in the four team playoff era, compared to the BCS Championship era that just ended prior to last year.  Instead of having three weeks to prepare for the title game, teams now have three weeks to prepare for a semi-final game, with a much shorter turnaround time prior to the title game.  The three previous national titles that Nick Saban won at Alabama all came under at least somewhat different circumstances than the title game they’ll play in next Monday.

When we take a look back at the national championship teams over the last decade, we can get a decent idea of the commonalities between those teams and use that to project forward for this year. Texas in 2005, Florida in 2006, LSU in 2007, Florida in 2008, Alabama in 2009, Auburn in 2010, Alabama in 2011 and 2012, Florida State in 2013 and Ohio State in 2014 combine to give us a profile worth noting.

The #1 commonality the last ten champions had is elite level talent.  That may sound obvious – it is obvious – but there are metrics worthy of mention that give an advantage to Alabama over Clemson.  Each of the last ten champs had a recruiting Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UCF Knights at East Carolina Pirates

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCF at East Carolina -4 O/U 139
Recommendation: Under


UCF's numbers are a little skewed because they played a handful of wild, high scoring affairs against teams that push the pace and don't play defense (see: Detroit, Stetson, and Davidson). But that's not their identity. Donnie Jones' teams have always been fairly slow and prefer to play zone. Following last week's 67-50 loss to George Washington, Jones had this to say: "I thought when we got in there in the second half that we would slow down, calm down," Jones said. "I thought we had good energy early on, but I think our spirit got broke there a few times when we were struggling to score and when you've got a young basketball team, these guys got to understand that it starts on the defensive end. You have to get stops. That's how you get back into the flow." That's not the quote of a coach who wants his team playing games in the 70's. Like UCF, ECU has played a bunch of "over" teams like Charlotte and UNC Wilmington. They've also played more moderately paced, defensive oriented squads as well (see: Cal, San Diego State, Ark-Little Rock, James Madison) and Read more

Cactus Bowl Betting Preview: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Arizona State Sun Devils

Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cactus Bowl - Phoenix, AZ
West Virginia vs. Arizona State
Saturday, January 2, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -1 O/U 66.5
CRIS Current: West Virginia -1.5 O/U 64
Recommendation: Arizona State

West Virginia is not exempt from the list of teams having to deal with starting personnel losses as All-Big XII first-team junior CB Daryl Worley and freshman WR Jovon Durante are out of this contest due to academics. Each has played in all 12 games this season and their absence figures to be felt. Worley (6 INTs, 12 pass break ups) is the Mountaineers best cover man which will test the coverage depth of their secondary. ASU quarterback Mike Bercovici (26 TD, 9 INT) has spread the ball around to a six player arsenal this season including running backs who have all caught between 24-54 passes. ASU can attack on all levels from horizontal to deep vertical which will make this difficult for West Virginia’s pass defense. Pressure from their defensive line against the Arizona State front that allowed 39 sacks this year will be crucial for WVA. The Sun Devils are extremely balanced with their Read more

NFL Gambing Preview: Detroit Lions at Chicgo Bears

Detroit at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Chicago -1.5 O/U 46.5
CRIS Current: Chicago -1 O/U 46
Recommendtion: Detroit

The Lions are 5-2 since their 1-7 start.  Two of their losses were complete screw jobs. Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary pass to beat them following a tough penalty call on the previous play was brutal.  So was their loss at Seattle, with a dubious non-call at the goal line in the final seconds on Monday Night Football.  Overall, Detroit is a better team than their record would indicate.  That’s not the case for the Bears.
 
Detroit has gotten much, much better since offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi was fired mid-season, replaced by Jim Bob Cooter.  It’s surely worth noting that Matthew Stafford has a 16-2 TD-INT ratio and a 108.7 QB rating since Cooter took over, in sharp contrast to his 13-11 TD-INT ratio and his 84.1 QB rating under Lombardi.
 
The Lions have won on the road at Green Bay and New Orleans; a veteran team capable of taking care of business in hostile environments.  And frankly, I’m not Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Montana State Bobcats at Southern Utah Thunderbirds

Montana State +1.5 at Southern Utah O/U 150
Recommendation: Montana State


Once you get beyond the top three teams in the Big Sky (Weber State, Montana, and Eastern Washington) there is a lot of parity throughout the league. One team that has caught my eye is Montana State who is in its second year under head coach Brian Fish. Last year was a clear rebuild as the Bobcats won only seven games. This year, they've already notched five wins including one over Wyoming and competitive showings against Nebraska-Omaha, North Dakota State and Buffalo. The schedule has been demanding with only two home games and they open league play on the road but should be rested and ready having not played since December 22. Southern Utah took a step forward last year with a respectable 7-11 league record. It's been a struggle this far however (3-8 SU, 1-7 ATS), especially without the services of their best player AJ Hess who missed the last four games and is doubtful for tonight. MSU's backcourt looks pretty strong with the addition of freshman Tyler Hall. MSU is shooting 38% from three as a team which bodes well against a very weak SUU defense (58% eFG, 345th nationally).

Fiesta Bowl - Glendale, AZ
Notre Dame vs. Ohio State
Friday, Janaury 1, 10 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -6.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Ohio State -6 O/U 56.5
Recommendation: Notre Dame

From tradition, competitive and ability standpoints, this is a terrific draw for the Fiesta Bowl. My power ratings suggest that these are two of the top eight teams in the nation so of the 38 non-playoff Bowls, it’s as close to a CFB Playoff caliber game as there is on the schedule. The game does not feature any real situational angle but you could make a small case that Notre Dame has a motivational advantage since the Buckeyes are a bit disappointed to not be in the four team playoff. However, this New Year’s Day stage and this opponent likely negate that. Fundamental matchups should determine the best way to play this one so let’s take a look at a couple keys.

It’s been a tough month for Ohio State which has seen some personnel losses due to injury and off field issues. A team imposed suspension will cost them starting sr. DT Adolphus Washington and combined with the injury Read more
