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: West Virginia Mountaineers at Oklahoma Sooners

West Virginia at Oklahoma
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -7.5 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -7 O/U 59
Recommendation: West Virginia

West Virginia enters this game with a 3-0 SU and ATS record although one could argue its quality of competition was lacking as they faced Georgia Southern, Liberty, and a Maryland team with a slew of issues. However, the fact remains that West Virginia has looked very sound on both sides of the football. Quarterback Skyler Howard, a dual threat QB, has grasped West Virginia’s offensive system quickly and been very effective in the first three games averaging over 300 passing with 69% completions and a strong 9-1 TD-to-INT ratio. WVU also has a pair of strong backs in Rushel Shell and Wendell Smallwood and a solid receiving corps with three different receivers with double digits in receptions and over 100 receiving yards led by Shelton Gibson.

Oklahoma’s defense hasn’t exactly put up a lot of resistance early in the season. In their two tougher games against better offenses, the Sooners yielded 24 points to Tennessee and were Read more

College Football Handicapping: Tennessee seeks better offensive balance

09.30.2015     07:39 AM     Printer Friendly 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: Iowa Hawkeyes at Wisconsin Badgers

Iowa at Wisconsin
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Wisconsin -8.5 O/U 47.5
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -6.5 O/U 47
Recommendation: Iowa

Big Ten conference play starts as the Iowa Hawkeyes take their perfect 4-0 record to Madison to battle with the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday morning. The Hawkeyes unleashed an offensive assault on North Texas last week, scoring 62 points and gaining 488 yards of total offense. Quarterback C.J. Beathard completed his first 15 passes, gaining 278 total yards and 2 TDs while senior running back Jordan Canzeri had a career day, tying a school record with 4 TDs on 22 carries for 115 yards. With the win, Iowa hit the 60-point barrier for the first time since 2012 and begin conference play with a 4-0 record for the first time since 2009.

The Badgers bounced back well from their opening week loss to Alabama with a trio of easy home wins against Miami-Ohio, Troy, and Hawaii. Now Wisconsin will start the league slate at home against an Iowa club that they have beat the last two seasons in Iowa City. Running back Taiwan Deal has filled in nicely with the absence of 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 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

NFL Handicapping: So-so performances by 0-2 teams in Week 3

09.28.2015     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
A quick look back at how the nine 0-2 teams performed in Week 3. The end result was 5-4 SU/ATS. All told, not one of the nine teams, including those who won and covered, really played all that well. Four teams remain winless heading into Week 4: Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, and New Orleans.

Indianapolis - Trailing 27-14 late in the third quarter, the Colts rallied back for the 35-33 win at Tennessee but failed to cover as -3 favorites.

Baltimore - Outgained by over a yard per play, the Ravens couldn't hold on to a 24-21 lead as Cincinnati punched in the game-winning touchdown with two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Big red flag as Andy Dalton threw for 383 yards and 12.0 yards per attempt.

Seattle - After tough back-to-back road games, the Seahawks cruised past Chicago 26-0. Note that it was a 6-0 game at halftime.

Detroit - The Lions couldn't run the football (28 yards, 1.5 ypc) or hang on to it (3 turnovers) in Sunday night's 24-12 loss to Denver.

Philadelphia - It wasn't pretty as the Eagles were outgained 4.3 ypp to 3.4 ypp in Sunday's Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys

09.24.2015     02:33 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Atlanta at Dallas
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Atlanta -1.5 O/U 44
CRIS Current: Dallas pk O/U 44.5
Recommendation: Under

The Dallas Cowboys are the antithesis of the up-tempo offensive approach to the 2015 NFL.  Through their first two games, Dallas has averaged an offensive snap every 32.8 seconds, ranked #31 in the NFL in pace ratings.  They ranked dead last in the NFL in pace last year.  This is not a team primed to push the tempo, regardless of circumstances, which makes perfect sense.  The Cowboys starters are as good as any in the NFL, but they lack quality depth at numerous positions due to their salary cap limitations.  So it makes perfect sense for Dallas to try to protect those starters as much as possible.  Running fewer plays does that, especially over the course of a full season.

But, as we all know, the Cowboys are riddled with high profile offensive injuries right now.  Tony Romo is out for a couple of months, leading receiver Dez Bryant is out, and tight end Jason Witten is very questionable to suit up here.  That leaves Brandon Read more
