College Football Betting Preview: San Jose Spartans at Tulsa Golden Hurricane

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
San Jose State at Tulsa
Saturday, 4 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
Tulsa -6 O/U 63.5
CRIS Current: Tulsa -5 O/U 70
Recommendation: Tulsa

The Tulsa Golden Hurricane enter the second year of the Philip Montgomery regime and I think this team is poised for improvement following a 6-7 campaign. This program was a disaster area during Bill Blankenship’s tenure but Montgomery, in just his first year on the job, took the team from 2-10 to a bowl game berth. Senior quarterback Dane Evans is back to lead what should be a very good offense. Evans posted a 63% completion rate with 25 TDs and just 8 INTs and should be even better in 2016. The offensive line has four returning starters and they have plenty of playmakers at the skill positions to put up points in bunches. Tulsa is in need of improvement on defense which was their biggest issue last season. They return seven starters including four of their top five tacklers. The Golden Hurricane will no doubt be better against the run after getting carved up for 240 ypg. The d-line returns three starters and everyone starting along that unit is either a junior or Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Bowling Green Falcons at Ohio State Buckeyes

Bowling Green at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -26 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Ohio State -28 O/U 64
Recommendation: Ohio State

The season kicks off in Columbus on Saturday morning as Ohio State hosts fellow in-state foe Bowling Green. The Buckeyes are looking to return back to the College Football Playoff after falling a field goal short of an undefeated regular season thanks to Michigan State. Urban Meyer's recruiting prowess is the key factor as to why many believe OSU is still one of the top contenders this season. The Buckeyes return only six starters on both sides of the ball but with tons of talented five-star freshman and many sophomores and juniors who know the systems well, this team should be able to pick up right where they've left off.

Bowling Green has a ton of changes heading into the year starting with first-year head coach Mike Jinks who was a top-tier prep coach for many years in Texas. He was part of Texas Tech's staff last season under Kliff Kingsbury. His familiarity with spread offenses will fit this up-tempo ball club that scored 591 Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Reevaluating NFL teams during the preseason

08.29.2016     09:13 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you read my NFL previews over the summer months (eight different Wiseguy Reports, one for each division), you know that I had some pretty strong opinions about a good handful of teams prior to the start of training camp and preseason.  In fact, 15 of the 32 NFL teams were on my initial short list for potential season win total bets, just shy of half the league.  These were all teams that, on paper, looked better or worse than initial oddsmaker projections.

After watching three weeks of NFL Preseason action, most of my initial opinions have been reinforced, and the betting markets have agreed with the vast majority of the win total wagers that I’ve made and those I’ve advised my clients to make.  That being said, I’ve changed my opinion on a handful of those 15 teams, in several cases rather strongly.  In this week’s wiseguy report, I’m going to flesh out what I’ve seen in the Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens that have me thinking very differently about those squads today compared to my opinion of them a month ago.

For the Redskins, the change in thought process is Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Kansas City Royals at Miami Marlins

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas City (Gee) +200 at Miami (Fernandez) O/U 7
Recommendation: Kansas City


I understand how well Jose Fernandez has pitched at home in his career, compiling a ridiculous 26-2 mark with a 1.62 ERA at Marlins Park.  His numbers have been steady and consistent throughout the 2016 campaign as well: 9-2 with a 2.07 ERA in Miami.  The betting attention that Fernandez has attracted during this long term run of excellence has resulted in prices like the one we’re seeing here, with Miami priced higher than 2:1 to win tonight’s game.

There’s one big problem with those long term, aggregate numbers – they don’t factor in current form.  Let’s not forget that Fernandez made only 11 starts last year and eight starts in 2014, dealing with the aftermath of Tommy John surgery.  He’s already thrown 141.2 innings this year, far more than in either of the last two seasons.  And Fernandez sure looks like he’s wearing down right now.  Miami is 0-4 in his last four starts (all as favorites, including a home loss at -240), and Fernandez has an ERA of 6.00 during that span.  Read more

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

08.22.2016     09:04 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, in Part I of my Wiseguy Report on NFL Preseason Betting strategies, I listed a handful of key mantras for winning in August. Don’t confuse a team’s regular season capabilities with their preseason goals.  Bet on teams in August that have a battle for their starting QB spot.  Know your coaches and their track records in various roles (and in various weeks).  And bet information, not opinions. 

All of those stand as solid mainstream advice; the stuff the markets are paying attention to.  This week, in Part II — preseason advanced handicapping methods —  I’m going to write about the things that the markets don’t pay enough attention to...but they probably should!

Let me start with a bold statement: "3" is not the most important key number when it comes to betting in the NFL reason.  Neither is "7".  No, the most important pointspread number in August is the number "1."  Read more

College Football Gambling: Rutgers adjusts to life as an up-tempo team

08.19.2016     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In keeping with our recent theme of first-year head coaches looking to go up-tempo, we take a look at the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Chris Ash steps in after serving as co-DC at Ohio State. He brings with him 28-year-old OC Drew Mehringer from Houston. Mehringer's offense is referred to as the "power spread" as will feature more pace. Rutgers ranked 13th in Big Ten play in total offense (338.9 ypg) last season.


"There’s some nuances and mechanics that go with the tempo," Blazek said, "and we’re picking up where we left off in the spring. … I like where they’re at."

But he added, "We’ve got some things we’ve got to work on."

"It’s something we’ve had to adjust to [physically]," the redshirt junior said of the faster-paced offense, "but I think it helps us out. It helps keep the defense on their toes. They’re not able to set up and make as many subs as they want, [and] at the same time it helps us
