College Football Handicapping: Penn State defense hammered by injuries

09.28.2016     09:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Couple injuries of note for Saturday's Minnesota-Penn State game. Golden Gophers defensive end Tai'yon Devers is reportedly out (Sports Options lists him as questionable). Devers has three of the team's nine sacks this season. Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions are down to a stop sign and two lawn chairs at linebacker. The unit was exposed and some against Michigan as the Wolverines rushed for 326 yards. Three weeks ago, Pitt rushed for 341 yards. Penn State is currently a -3 home favorite.


"In my 22 years of doing this, I've never been a part of a team that's lost all three of our starting linebackers," Franklin said. "I've been around teams that have lost this guy for a game or lost this guy for two games or lost this guy maybe for a season, but to lose all of them for a significant amount of time at the same time, I've never been a part of that."

College Football Gambling: Notre Dame parts ways with defensive coordinator

09.27.2016     08:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In keeping with the "house cleaning" theme for today, Notre Dame announced the firing of defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder following Saturday's 38-35 loss to Duke. With a backup quarterback, the Blue Devils waltzed into South Bend and nearly 500 yards. This is the same team that scored a combined 27 points in losses to Wake Forest and Northwestern. The remainder of the Irish's schedule looks daunting from a defensive perspective. This week's foe, Syracuse, is playing at a pace Notre Dame has shown no ability to contain. North Carolina State and Miami haven't played anyone but are putting up points in bunches. Navy and Army aren't ideal for a stop unit that struggles to tackle. And Virginia Tech's up-tempo offense is starting to take hold with 103 points the last two weeks against Boston College and East Carolina.


“When you guys ask me those questions certainly that's not the time or place to get into debates about your coaching staff. I make those decisions clearly

College Football Betting: LSU seeks more offense following coaching change

09.27.2016     08:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stop us if you've heard this before: Struggling team fires coach, vows to "open up" offense moving forward. That is what LSU is proclaiming in the wake of Les Miles' departure. College football's most popular interim head coach Ed Orgeron takes over heading into this weekend's matchup against Missouri. The "new" offense coupled with Missouri's up-tempo attack prompted a bevy of over money as the total skyrocketed from 45 to 51.


“You can expect … a new style of play on offense, and obviously we don't have a lot of time to change things, but we are going to tweak things around,” Orgeron said in his introductory news conference.

“We're going to spread the ball out a little bit, do some different things, change the style of play,” he said later Monday.

College Football Gambling: Florida International finaly frees itself of Ron Turner

09.27.2016     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Four years ago marked one of the most baffling college football head coaching firings/hirings on record. Mario Cristobal took over Florida International in 2007 and proceeded to go 1-11. But three years later, helped the Panthers reach a bowl game; their first of what was back-to-back postseason appearances. FIU suffered from regression in 2013 (3-9) and Cristobal was mysteriously fired. Rather than reload with another young, up-and-coming coach, FIU decided to bring in Ron Turner. It was a silly hire that was destined to fail, and fail it did. Turner, who went 35-57 at Illinois and 10-30 at FIU, was finally canned this past weekend. The university justified the move by saying it allowed the team a "clean slate" heading into C-USA play. Defensive coordinator Ron Cooper will serve as interim head coach the remainder of the season. This weekend's opponent, Florida Atlantic, was bet from -5.5 to -7.

College Football Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers at Michigan State Spartans

09.23.2016     10:33 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wisconsin at Michigan State
Saturday, 9 am PT - BTN
CRIS Opener:
Michigan State -6 O/U 45.5
CRIS Current: Michigan State -5 O/U 42
Recommendation: Michigan State

What on earth does Michigan State have to do to earn some real respect from the betting markets?   This team went 13-1 in 2013, 11-2 in 2014 and 12-2 last year, rising to elite program status in Mark D’Antonio’s tenth year on the job. But the Spartans suffered some significant graduation losses in the offseason, especially on offense where QB Connor Cook and three of the linemen protecting him went to the NFL.  And then Michigan State looked sluggish in their opener against Furman, never even sniffing the -37.5 point spread in a 28-13 victory.  The betting markets, as they do, dramatically overreacted to that sluggish showing, installing the Spartans as 7.5 point underdogs at Notre Dame last week.  They dominated wire-to-wire in a ‘not as close as the final score’ 36-28 romp.

But the betting markets that didn’t respect Michigan State in 2013 or 2014 (combined 19-8 ATS), and Read more
