College Football Handicapping: Rutgers attempts to overhaul offense

08.16.2016     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's a new year and that means Rutgers is bringing in a new offensive coordinator. First-year OC Drew Mehringer will mark the seventh in seven years for the Scarlet Knights and is expected to install was is referred to as the "power spread" similar to that of Ohio State and Auburn. Rutgers averaged a pedestrian 67 plays per game last year.


"We install several different tempos," Mehringer said. "We're trying to manage the game and get the offense as well as the team in the best chance to win. Tempo and how we can affect that on offense is a big conversation."

“Do you have to have a pure running quarterback? No you don’t,” Mehringer said. “Do you have to tweak what you

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Preseason Handicapping Part I

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Week 1 of the 2016 NFL Preseason is in the books, with underdog bettors showing a modest profit through the weekend’s action.  Non-bettors always seem shocked when I talk about betting (and beating) the preseason.  How can you bet on exhibition games?  I don’t even know the guys on the field in the second half.  Boy, you really must be a degenerate gambler if you’re betting on NFL Preseason.

That couldn’t be further from the truth.  A sharp bettor’s mantra is fairly simple and nearly universal: Bet when you have an edge.  Pass when you don’t.  That holds for regular season NFL and it holds for preseason NFL as well.  And there are no shortage of edges to find when it comes to betting August football. 

In this two part column, I’ll illustrate the strategies that wiseguys use to attack preseason football.  In Part 1 (below), I’ll outline the basic market forces that create preseason pointspreads and show Preseason Handicapping 101 methods to beat those pointspreads.  In Part 2 next week, I’ll take a Deep Dive into some Advanced Betting Strategies for Read more

College Football Handicapping: Michigan defense expected to apply constant pressure

08.15.2016     08:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan's first-year defensive coordinator Don Brown is noted for being one of the most blitz-happy coaches in college football. Brown's Boston College defense ranked second nationally with 114 tackles for loss in 2015. Last year, the Wolverines ranked fifth in the Big Ten in tackles for loss (88) and sacks (32).


“I said ‘You know, Coach, I’m probably (bringing pressure) 65 percent (of the time).’ And he goes. ‘Nah, I hear 85.’ I think he knew what he was looking for.”

“Dr. Blitz knows what he’s doing, man. That’s what he’s great at. That’s what he hangs his hat on and that’s what we’re going to do. And I’m pretty sure everyone knows it.”

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit (Verlander) +100 at Seattle (Hernandez) O/U 7
Recommendation: Detroit


Since coming off the DL, Seattle has gone 3-1 in Felix Hernandez’s four starts.  Those results aren’t sustainable, because King Felix is no ‘King’ at this stage of his career. The results don’t lie.  Hernandez has a 5.26 ERA in those four starts since coming off the DL.  He’s allowed 35 baserunners while only notching 19 strikeouts, while giving up as many home runs as he did for the entire first half of the campaign.  His full season numbers are now below the MLB average in just about every advanced metric category.  His fastball velocity is down, his strikeout rate is down and his swinging strike percentage is down.  To make matters worse, he’s got a lousy track record against numerous current Tigers, including key middle of the order bats Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Ian Kinsler.  Seattle’s bullpen behind him is completely spent following last night’s marathon.

Meanwhile, Justin Verlander is headed in the opposite direction of late.  Since getting extended rest Read more

College Football Handicapping: Purdue desperate for offensive help

08.08.2016     07:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's generally not a good sign when a coach is in an improved-or-get-fired year and decides to go with a new offensive coordinator who wants to "simplify things." That's the case with Purdue who canned OC John Shoop this past offseason. The Boilermakers improved from a yards per game perspective each of Shoops' three seasons but still ranked as one of the weakest offenses in the Big Ten. Purdue decided to promote tight ends coach Terry Malone to replace Shoop. Because of injuries and ineffectiveness, the Boilermakers have been forced to play multiple quarterbacks each of head coach Darrell Hazell's first three seasons. It's resulted in a 6-30 record and only two Big Ten wins. In five seasons as a head coach (Kent State and Purdue), Hazell's offenses have never ranked higher than 74th nationally in total offense (104th average).


"At the end of the day, simple is best," said Hazell, now 6-30 in three seasons at Purdue. "Coach Malone has done an excellent job with these

College Football Gambling: The revolving door of defensive coordinators continues for Indiana

08.04.2016     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson has done a really good job in Bloomington after gutting the program his first year (1-11) and finally getting the Hoosiers to the postseason in 2015. His offense has proven capable of scoring on practically everyone (31.3 ppg vs. Michigan, Ohio State, and Michigan State LY). It's the defense that has held them back. Last season, the Hoosiers lost five games by one score and in those contests allowed 43.2 ppg. IU heads into this season on its third defensive coordinator in six years. Tom Allen steps in after a one-year stint as USF's DC. He plans to employ a new 4-2-5 scheme.


“I think they’re here,’’ Allen said. “We’re going to recruit to it, but I didn’t come here and evaluate the team and think ‘Man, we’re really lacking this certain position.’ The one position to me that’s the most unique is the Husky position, the hybrid linebacker/safety. We feel like we have two or three guys there

College Football Handicapping: Big Ten increases league schedule to nine games

08.04.2016     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We put together a breakdown of the Big Ten's home and away and cross division pairings now that the conference slate has been increased from eight to an uneven nine games. It looks as if this season the entire East Division will get the five home/four away split. Overall, there are some obvious favorable and unfavorable draws. Penn State for example gets the 5 home/4 away split, two of the "Big Three" (Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State) at home as as well as its two toughest West games (Minnesota and Iowa). On the other end of the spectrum, Wisconsin plays only four conference home games, gets the entire "Big Three" from the East two of which on the road, and plays two of its three toughest division games (Iowa, Nebraska, and Iowa) on the road in back-to-back-to-back weeks.
