Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: A look back and NFL Week 6

10.19.2015     08:29 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Week 6 of the NFL is in the rear view mirror as the 2015 regular season approaches the halfway point.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll look to answer three questions that stood out to me following Sunday’s action.

How good are the Jets? 
In the midst of a season where there don’t appear to be a whole host of elite Super Bowl contenders, the Jets 4-1 start has bettors and pundits taking notice.  The Patriots, Bengals and Packers are the clear Top 3 teams in any reasonable set of NFL power ratings.  There’s a legitimate argument to be made that the Jets could be #4 on that list, ahead of or equal to other hot start teams like the Cardinals, Falcons or Panthers.

The Jets won only four games last year; their fourth consecutive non-winning season.  With Todd Bowles as the new head coach, New York was lined as a 7.5 win team here in 2015 in the offseason betting markets.  The training camp injury to Geno Smith left Ryan Fitzpatrick as the starting quarterback; a switch that the betting markets didn’t react to very much.  But Fitzpatrick has been a difference maker for New Read more

NFL Gambling Free Pick: Washington Redskins at New York Jets

Washington at NY Jets
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
New York -5.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: New York -7 O/U 40.5
Recommendation: New York

How good are these Jets?  They won only four games last year; their fourth consecutive non-winning season.  With Todd Bowles as the new head coach, New York was lined as a 7.5 win team here in 2015 in the offseason betting markets.  At this stage of the season, that number looks very short, but the residual effects of their preseason ranking are still on display given this cheap pointspread.  If the Jets are an elite team, capable of winning ten or eleven games – and they certainly look that way – laying less than a TD at home with them against a team like Washington is truly a pointspread bargain.

The Redskins are riddled with key injuries right now.  They’ll be missing two starting offensive linemen, including Kirk Cousins best protector, tackle Trent Williams; bad news on a week where the Jets get behemoth defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson back in the lineup. Washington’s secondary is a mess as well, Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan State Spartans at Michigan Wolverines

Michigan State at Michigan
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -6.5 O/U 41
CRIS Current: Michigan -7.5 O/U 42
Recommendation: Michigan State

This is a fascinating game; a contest where the contrasts between Las Vegas and the mainstream college football world are on full display for everyone to see.  The pointspread itself has been a major issue in social media discussion this week, with the Wolverines getting bet up as high as -8.5 before some buyback on the Spartans, driving the line back down to the current -7.5 number as I write this on Thursday morning.  Of course, Michigan State is ranked at #4 in the Coaches Poll, while Michigan is #14, giving ill-informed TV commentators the right to call it an upset if Michigan wins the game – even if the Wolverines don’t cover the spread.

Last week at this time, the lookahead line at the Westgate Superbook here in Vegas for Michigan State – Michigan was sitting at pick ‘em.  Then Michigan did what they’ve been doing all year – blowing out foes in bad spots.  And Michigan State did Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Texas A&M Aggies

Alabama at Texas A&M
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -4 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Alabama -4 O/U 54
Recommendation: Texas A&M

We are now three years removed from “Lightning in a bottle in Tuscaloosa”, which showcased Johnny Manziel and Texas A&M who welcomed themselves into the SEC by going into Tuscaloosa and coming away with the outright win as two touchdown underdogs. Since the 2013 upset, Alabama has won two straight including last year’s 59-0 beat down. The 2015 edition of Kevin Sumlin’s team is on a much different trajectory then last year’s team. Texas A&M is off to a 5-0 start this year behind their high flying offense led by quarterback Kyle Allen. The Aggies are averaging 480 ypg and 6.5 ypp including 680 yards in their last two games vs. the SEC West’s Mississippi State and Arkansas.  The run game also looks improved at 188 ypg. They aren’t picking up the huge chunks of yards they did during the Manziel era but they are committed to being balanced and it paid off last week as the Aggies ran the ball 45 times for 194 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Louisville Cardinals at Florida State Seminoles

Louisville at Florida State
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -7.5 O/U 46
CRIS Current: Florida State -7 OU 46
Recommendation: Over

Crucial matchup in regards to the ACC’s Atlantic Division standings as Florida State (2-0) could eliminate Louisville (1-1) from ACC Championship Game contention with a win here. Though they remain unbeaten at 5-0 this season, the Seminoles have been unimpressive against the line posting a 2-3 ATS mark despite playing a schedule that has been less than taxing. Strength of schedule comparison favors Louisville as my power ratings show the Cards’ average opponent strength to be a substantial 10.1 points better than that of FSU. That number becomes even more relevant when you see that unlike Florida State, Louisville has been very successful versus the number going 4-1. First glance suggests a mechanical play on the under-valued team against the somewhat inflated one but this mid-week number of Florida State -7 indicates oddsmakers have made an adjustment (opened FSU -7.5) and early money helped correct it even more. Power ratings show the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

USC at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -4 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 60.5
Recommendation: Over

The USC Trojans will be looking to take the first step in turning the page on the Steve Sarkisian era as they travel to South Bend to face Notre Dame in this annual rivalry battle. USC fired Sarkisian this past week and stepping in for the second time as interim head coach will be Clay Helton who did the same when Ed Orgeron left the team after the 2013 regular season. From multiple accounts, the players have shown positive support for Helton moving forward. Kenny Bigelow: "We have a lot of older guys here now that are able and old enough and mature enough to step up and get everybody rallied behind Coach Helton as we go forward." Connor Spears: "We all kind of know what we have to do, and I think Helton's going to do a tremendous job of keeping us in line and making sure we perform."

USC’s last game was an ugly 17-12 loss to Washington last Thursday night as double-digit favorites. It’s unclear just how Read more

College Football Betting: Multiple mid-season firings

10.13.2015     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A handful of coaching situations for bettors to be aware of.

Steve Sarkisian (USC) - Reports recently came out that Sarkisian has a major drinking problem. USC had no choice but to let him go prior to three straight games against ranked opponents including Saturday's trip to South Bend.

Replacement - Clay Helton who has served as USC's OC and stepped in as interim HC when Ed Orgeron bailed after hearing he had no shot at landing the full-time gig. Helton has been with the program for six years.

Dan McCarney (North Texas) - Two years ago, the Mean Green were riding high with a 9-win season and bowl win. Last year they took a step back (4-8) and this season has been nothing short of a disaster with blowout losses to SMU, Southern Miss, and FCS Portland State.  It's likely NT's only shot at a win is the season finale vs. equally woeful UTEP.

Replacement - Offensive coordinator Mike Canales and defensive coordinator Chris Cosh will serve as co-interim head coaches.

Randy Edsall (Maryland) - Edsall was reportedly going to last until the end of the season but the Terps decided the Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Spartans and Buckeyes still highly ranked, still not covering pointspreads

10.12.2015     08:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Talking about the college football national championship race in mid-October is a pointless endeavor.  The mainstream media hypes the unbeaten teams and the elite level programs among the Power 5 conferences – that’s what boosts ratings, what the general public seems to be interested in. 

But we all know that the teams that look elite in mid-October aren’t necessarily the teams that look elite when the pressure ratchets up in November and beyond.  Look no further than last year at this time, when teams like Auburn, Ole Miss, Notre Dame and Oklahoma all were ranked as Top 10 teams; championship contenders.  Those four teams finished the season with 19 losses between them, each team suffering at least four SU losses AFTER Week 7 of the season. 

So here we are in 2015.  Ohio State has been ranked #1 since the preseason, and since the Buckeyes haven’t lost in SU fashion, they remain #1.  Michigan State opened as the #5 team in the country (AP Top 25; they were #6 in the coaches poll).  Currently, the Spartans rank #4 in the coaches poll and #7 in the AP poll, another team that the pundits have been Read more
