College Football Betting Preview: Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at Missouri Tigers

Middle Tennessee State at Missouri
Saturday, 1 pm PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -6.5 O/U 69.5
CRIS Current: Missouri -7.5 O/U 75
Recommendation: Missouri

Missouri enters this matchup with a 2-4 record under new head coach Barry Odom including back-to-back blowout losses at LSU and Florida. In their six games, the Tigers have faced three elite defenses in West Virginia, LSU and Florida and their offense has struggled in those three losses. However, against average or worse defenses, the Tigers’ new passing offense has been good and they will face an opposing defense that they should be able to take advantage of this week in Middle Tennessee State.

MTSU allowed perhaps the worst SEC offense, Vanderbilt, to pile up 47 points with 344 total yards and 5.1 yards per rush.  MTSU also allowed 34 points to La Tech and 44 last week to Western Kentucky. This defense will struggle again against SEC athletes, and I expect Missouri to get back on track against the Blue Raiders.

Missouri should also pose some problems on defense for the MTSU offense. Despite the lopsided score last week Read more

NFL Gambling News: The AFC West is up for grabs

10.17.2016     11:26 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The AFC West is officially up for grabs. The Oakland Raiders are tied for first at 4-2; finding ways to win a handful of “coin flip” games. Victories against New Orleans, Tennessee, Baltimore and San Diego all came by a touchdown or less. Quarterback Derek Carr and the offense have been able to offset one of the league’s weakest defenses. The Raiders rank dead last in the NFL in three categories: yards per play allowed (6.9), yards per game allowed (444.8) and passing yards per game allowed (312.7). It was another poor performance on that side of the football in Sunday’s 26-10 home loss to Kansas City. Per usual, the Chiefs played it close to the vest for much of the game but still racked up 406 total yards. Oakland’s defensive struggles have yet to be corrected and until they are, the Raiders have the feel of an overvalued team from a pointspread perspective.

The Denver Broncos raced out to a 4-0 SU and ATS start but have since dropped two straight to Atlanta and San Diego. Denver’s offensive line played a key role  in both losses. They lost a couple of key cogs on the line with right tackle Donald Stephenson missing the last few Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Utah Utes at Oregon State Beavers

Utah at Oregon State
Saturday, 1 pm PT - PAC-12
CRIS Opener:
Utah -13 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Utah -7.5 O/U 40
Recommendation: Under

The biggest totals move on the board and it appears justified as the weather in Corvallis, Oregon is projected to be hurricane-esque on Saturday. Current weather reports are not only calling for heavy rain but winds of 30-40 MPH. And it's important to note that Reser Stadium is not enclosed meaning that wind will have little issue entering the stadium. The forward pass should be all but nonexistent in this contest.

Oregon State shows a strong statistical profile running the football but the stats are heavily skewed due to games against FCS Idaho State and defensively inept Cal. The Beavers racked up 70% of their seasonal yardage (730 yards) in those two games. In their three contests against Minnesota, Boise State, and Colorado, OSU averaged a measly 3.0 ypc. Utah grades out as above average against the run having allowed just over 4.0 ypc. In last year's meeting, the Utes held the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Tennessee Volunteers

Alabama at Tennessee
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -10.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Alabama -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Over

The Tennessee defense is in a world of hurt right now, terrible news as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.  The Vols stop unit has, quite simply, been gutted with key injuries.  They’ve lost Cameron Sutton, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Cortez McDowell from their secondary; Quar’te Sapp and Darrin Kirkland from their linebacking corps and Danny O’Brien from the defensive line.  Sutton, Sapp and O’Brien have all been lost to season ending injuries, losing top playmakers from all three defensive units.

Of that group, only McDowell has a chance to play this week, and even that’s very ‘iffy’.  No surprise, then, that the Vols surrendered ten plays of 20 yards or more in their double overtime loss at Texas A&M last Saturday.  And, after that wild A&M on the heels of the wild Georgia game and the wild Florida game; a Vols defense that hasn’t had a bye yet certainly could use Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Ohio State Buckeyes at Wisconsin Badgers

Ohio State at Wisconsin
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -10 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Ohio State -10 O/U 44
Recommendation: Ohio State

The Wisconsin Badgers return to the gridiron off a much-needed bye week. The offense was exposed in a big way in their 14-7 loss to Michigan; 159 total yards for 3.0 yards per play. Quarterback Alex Hornibrook completed just 9-of-25 passes for 88 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. The no. 2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes are coming off a non-covering 38-17 victory over Indiana. It was by OSU standards a flat performance after beating Rutgers 58-0. For the first time all season, the offense struggled as the Hoosiers held the Buckeyes to a season-low 383 yards. The storyline was the defense as Indiana managed only 281 yards and coughed up the ball twice.

Despite a poor offensive showing last week, the Buckeyes will have a significant edge this weekend. The offense has generated 28 plays of 20 yards or more and 12 plays over 30 yards this season. The Badgers meanwhile are one of the least explosive teams in the Big Ten with only six plays Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan Wolverines at Rutgers Scarlet Knights

Michigan at Rutgers
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Michigan -25.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Michigan -30 O/U 53
Recommendation: First half over

With the exception of last week's 14-7 win over Wisconsin, Michigan has played the role of bully this season with wins by 39, 17, 37, and 60. There were 149 points score in the first half of those four games (37.3 avg) with a vast majority courtesy of the Wolverines. Head coach Jim Harbaugh came into the season with a reputation of playing it vanilla with a big lead. This year, he's been far more aggressive. We've even seen multiple instance in which backup quarterback John O'Korn entered the game late during a blowout and proceeded to take shots down field.

This week's opponent, Rutgers, offers another opportunity to “name the score.” The Scarlet Knights managed just seven points against Iowa and were shutout last week in Columbus, 58-0. Chris Ash has his work cut out for him and it's tough to envision his squad having much success in this contest. And while much of the focus is on the offense's struggles, the Scarlet Knights' defense Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Oklahoma Sooners vs. Texas Longhorns

Oklahoma vs. Texas - Dallas
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -10.5 O/U 72
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -10 O/U 73
Recommendation: Over

To say that the Longhorns new uptempo offense has paid immediate dividends is something of an understatement.  The Longhorns rank among the Top 10 teams in the country in pace ratings, averaging just shy of 85 plays per game.

Sterlin Gibert’s attack is averaging 38 points per game in regulation through their first four contests, behind the strong arm of Shane Buechele and the D’Onta Foreman/Chris Warren running back duo, combining to average nearly 6.5 yards per carry.  And these aren’t padded numbers against bottom tier FCS schools or Sun Belt squads either – three of the Longhorns first four opponents were Power 5 conference bowl teams last year (Notre Dame, Cal and Oklahoma State).

Oklahoma is no stranger to playing uptempo football, even though their full season pace rating isn’t quite as high as that of Texas.  The Sooners game against uptempo TCU last week produced 98 points, with both teams Read more

NFL Handicapping: Steelers respond, concerns continue for Buccaneers and Panthers

10.03.2016     12:54 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For this week’s article, I will be discussing a trio of teams that suffered bad Week 3 losses and whether their response in Week 4 was a positive sign moving forward or a warning sign of further problems.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were one of a handful teams pegged for improvement by both the media and bettors during the preseason. After winning six games in 2015, Tampa was bet up from 7 to 7.5 wins in the futures market. And Week 1’s road win against Atlanta only strengthened that opinion. But since then, it’s been a disaster. After getting blown out in Week 2 at Arizona, the Bucs returned home to face Los Angeles in what was an optimal spot for a big effort. Instead, they coughed up 37 points in a loss. Amazingly, Tampa outgained the Rams by over 150 yards, had 12 more first downs, and were even in the turnover battle and still found a way to lose.

Fast forward to to this past weekend and instead of laying -5, Tampa was +3 home underdogs to Denver. Again, it was another situation that suggested a solid effort. But the Broncos dominated from start to finish as Jameis Winston threw two interceptions and posted a dreadful 40.1 QB rating. Winston Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots

Buffalo at New England
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
New England -6.5 O/U 43.5
CRIS Current: New England -7 O/U 43
Recommendation: Buffalo

The Patriots have survived the Tom Brady suspension pretty darn well, going 3-0 SU and ATS without their four time Super Bowl winning QB. But with Brady on the way back next week, facing a divisional rival with a real chip on their shoulder, I’m expecting the Patriots to be tested on Sunday in a clear flat spot for the home favorite.

New England doesn’t have a healthy quarterback right now. Jimmy Garappolo has been upgraded to probable, but he’s dealing with consistent pain from his shoulder injury. Jacoby Brissett has a bad thumb, and if the rookie third stringer gets playing time here, it’s probably good news for Buffalo backers.

And the Pats are an overvalued commodity this week. Think about their season. They started with an upset win over Arizona, devalued now because Arizona hasn’t looked anything like the elite squad they were last year in early season play. The Pats nearly blew a big lead against Miami, Read more
