College Football Gambling: Duke seeks first bowl win since 1961

12.23.2014     06:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Now that Duke is a regular participant in the postseason, the next step is coming away with a victory. Two years ago they went toe-to-toe with Cincinnati but fell apart late in one of the worst bad beats in recent sports betting history. Last season, they snagged the pointspread cover but again came up short to Texas A&M and Johnny Football, 52-48. The Blue Devils will play the role of underdog again with Arizona State currently a 7.5-point favorite for Saturday's Sun Bowl.

“It’s huge,” senior quarterback Anthony Boone said. “It’s not about checking anything off the list, it’s about ending our season with a bang, ending our season with 10 wins — against a top-25 team — and getting a bowl championship. That’s really what it comes down to: This game is a championship game, so we at the end of that game, we want to be able to stand on that podium and hold up a trophy.”

Chris Christie and Adam Silver could team up to fight for legalized sports betting

12.22.2014     01:47 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Montana and Rice. Jordan and Pippen. Lewis and Clark. Christie and Silver? If it means progress toward legalized sports betting then count us in.

“Governor Christie, and I'm happy to join him, should turn his attention to Washington, DC, to Congress, and say, ‘Here are all the reasons it should be regulated, but let's come up with a framework that makes sense on a national basis presumably that would allow states to opt in,’ ” Silver told ESPN’s Andy Katz.

“Estimates are that it's up to $400 billion a year. And my view is, if it's going to go on, let's make it transparent, let's bring it into the sunlight, so to speak, and let's regulate it, the same way we do a lot of other industries,” he said.

NFL Gambling Alert: Bears go back to the well with Cutler

12.22.2014     12:44 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
A week removed from getting benched for Jimmy Clausen, Jay Cutler has regained his starting spot -- albeit in de facto fashion. Clausen suffered a concussion in Sunday's loss to Detroit. The Bears (+6.5/+7) close the year at Minnesota.

“Jay gives us the best chance this week. So that’s why he’ll be out there,” Trestman said, via “Jay said ‘I’ll be ready to go.’ He empathizes with what Jimmy had gone through last night. He’s ready to go. He’ll be in this afternoon to get started.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: AFC Playoff Contenders

12.22.2014     10:09 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Week 16 of the NFL season is in the books and four teams have emerged as clear co-favorites to win the Super Bowl.  Green Bay and Seattle are at the top of the power ratings spectrum in the NFC while Denver and New England look poised for a rematch from last year in the AFC Championship Game.

Last week in this space, I poked holes in the NFC contenders, explaining why every other live team in the playoff race had at least one fundamental flaw primed to doom their chances in January.  This week, I’m going to point the magnifying glass towards the seven fringe contenders in the AFC.  Can any of them knock off the Patriots in Foxboro or the Broncos in Denver when January rolls around?  Read on to find out. 

The Houston Texans remain one of five teams still fighting for the final two playoff spots in the AFC after knocking off the Ravens on Sunday.  But if the Texans do manage to sneak into the postseason with a Wild Card berth, I’m not expecting them to do any damage. 

Houston’s defense ranks among the league’s elite, as we clearly saw once again this past weekend.  But the Texans average Read more

Camellia Bowl Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars vs. Bowling Green Falcons

12.19.2014     01:12 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Camellia Bowl - Montgomery, Ala.
South Alabama vs. Bowling Green
Saturday, 6:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Bowling Green -1  O/U 55
CRIS Current: South Alabama -2.5  O/U 53.5
Drew Martin’s Recommendation:  South Alabama

The Bowling Green Falcons and the South Alabama Jaguars square off Saturday night in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl in Montgomery Alabama. It’s the Falcons third straight bowl game as winners of the MAC’s East Division. South Alabama will be making its first bowl appearance in school history. The Jags are the “youngest” FBS team to ever reach a bowl game (surpassing the previous mark held by Florida Atlantic). The Camellia Bowl has some interesting dynamics at play including strength of schedule, travel, and coaching changes.

The Falcons run over 80 plays per game with most of it coming via the pass. They lost arguably the best Read more

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl Betting Preview: Western Michigan Broncos vs. Air Force Falcons

Famous Idaho Potato Bowl - Boise, Idaho
Western Michigan vs. Air Force
Saturday, 2:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Western Michigan -2 O.U 56.5
CRIS Current: Air Force -1 O/U 58
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Air Force -0.5

Quite a turnaround for Western Michigan who in PJ Fleck's second season improved to 8-4 after only one victory in 2013. They were the most complete team in the MAC ranking third in both total offense (443 ypg) and total defense (355 ypg) in conference play. Air Force wasn't nearly as impressive ranking 6th and 7th respectively in the Mountain West. The Falcons though played in the tougher conference and Mountain Division which has a chance (if Air Force and Utah State wins) to produce four 10-win or better squads.

One of the concerns with Western Michigan is not only the lack of competition but their performance against comparable and/or better competition. They routinely fell short Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Arizona State Sun Devils at Marquette Golden Eagles

Arizona State at Marquette
Recommendation: Under 61.5 1st half

I’ve had Marquette pegged as an "under" squad. With only eight available players, the Golden Eagles have been forced to slow down the tempo as well as play zone. Their last game vs. Wisconsin featured only 108 possessions and 87 points. Probably won't see that type of extreme tonight but first-year head coach Steve Wojechowski knows that muddying up the game gives his short-handed squad their best chance to win. Also note that guard Deonte Burton left the team and they added 6-11 center Luke Fisher who originally played at Indiana. The Golden Eagles are in desperate need of size in the paint so the recent “transaction” is really addition by subtraction defensively. Arizona State has been playing at a relatively moderate pace but they've been ultra-efficient thus far hitting nearly 41% of their 3's and 53% of their 2's. Not sure however how long they'll be able to keep that up, especially on the road vs. a capable defense. In their last road game at Texas A&M there were only 120 possessions but 143 points. That is an outlier-type performance and if the Sun Read more
