College Football Betting Preview: UCF Knights at Navy Midshipmen

10.19.2017     11:59 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCF at Navy
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: UCF -6.5 O/U 65
CRIS Current: UCF -7 O/U 65
Recommendation: Over

The UCF Knights have not just beaten the pointspread this season, they have annihilated it by a combined 100 points for an average of 20 ppg. They have an explosive and balanced offense that averages 548 ypg at 8.1 ypp. It’s a unit to I project will give an undersized Navy defense plenty of problems. Despite playing two options teams (Tulane and Air Force), the Midshipmen defense has been average at best (6.2 ypp allowed) this season and heads into Saturday on the heels of back-to-back hard fought barn burners that came down to the last possession. UCF marks a huge step up in class and I could very easily see the Knights wearing down Navy’s defense in the second half which should lead to big chunks of yards.

UCF's defense has also looked the part this season (16.8 ppg allowed) but the schedule comes up a little light with four of its five opponents currently ranked 75th or worse in total offense. Navy is arguably the modest capable Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Tulane Green Wave

Tulsa at Tulane
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener: Tulane -3 O/U 61.5
CRIS Current: Tulane -4.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Under

Very unique situation for the Tulsa Golden Hurricane as their trip to Tulane marks the third straight week they've faced an option-based offense. Despite failing to cover both contests vs. Navy and New Mexico, I came away somewhat impressed with Tulsa's defense. After allowing over 9 yards per play to up-tempo Oklahoma State, UL-Lafayette and Toledo, the Golden Hurricane held the Midshipmen and Lobos to 47 points and 6.6 ypp combined. Saturday's game marks another situation where Tulsa's stop unit should perform at an adequate level as Tulane ranks 102nd nationally in total offense vs. Navy and New Mexico who rank 18th and 38th, respectively.

Tulane's defense is talented and has the potential to be the best unit in the AAC. They aren't necessarily built to stop top-tier attacks (Oklahoma hung 56 points and 10.2 ypp) but Tulsa's offense, specifically its passing game, has taken a big step back this season following the departure of Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Tech Red Raiders at Kansas Jayhawks

Texas Tech at Kansas
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener: Texas Tech -17 O/U 77
CRIS Current: Texas Tech -16 O/U 79
Recommendation: Kansas

Two weeks ago, Kansas played arguably its best game of the season. Trailing early to West Virginia, the Jayhawks battled back and were within one score midway through the fourth quarter before two turnovers let to two Mountaineer scores and a somewhat deceiving 56-34 final. Kansas still covered the number (+23.5) giving them five straight Big XII pointspread wins dating back to last season but I'm far more interested in what they were able to do on the ground. There was a lot of preseason talk about Kansas going to more of an "Air Raid" style offense but they simply don't have to personnel, particularly at the quarterback position, to chuck the ball around 50 times a game and have success. Against WVU, Kansas ran the ball 50 times and finished with 367 yards on 7.3 ypc. This against a team that coming in was allowing 4.4 ypc. Don't expect that type of success on a weekly basis but keeping the ball on the ground, especially in Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Memphis Tigers at UConn Huskies

Memphis at UConn
Friday, 4 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: Memphis -14 O/U 70
CRIS Current: Memphis -13.5 O/U 72
Recommendation: Over

Things have not broken right for Memphis in the early going. The Tigers played their opening game against Louisiana-Monroe in the midst of the remnants of Hurricane Harvey – a torrential downpour throughout most of the contest. They had to cancel their game the next week because of Hurricane Irma in Florida. Following the wild upset win over UCLA, the Tigers looked flat against Southern Illinois the following week. Last week, facing UCF, the Tigers got whipped, turning the ball over four times on offense while allowing more than 600 yards on defense.

Make no mistake about it – Memphis is loaded with the type of skill position talent that UConn can’t cover. With QB Riley Ferguson returning for his senior year, 103 career starts back on the offensive line and the likes of RB’s Darrell Henderson and Patrick Taylor (combined more than 6.5 yards per carry) WR’s Anthony Miller, Phil Mayhue and Tony Pollard (37 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers at Nebraska Cornhuskers

Wisconsin at Nebraska
Saturday, 5 pm PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener: Wisconsin -13.5 O/U 49
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -12.5 O/U 45.5
Recommendation: Under

Feeling the heat of an 1-3 start, including a home loss to Northern Illinois, Nebraska head coach Mike Riley is well aware his days in Lincoln could be numbered. Said "heat" has cooled off a little bit thanks to back-to-back wins to open Big Ten play. The competition Rutgers and Illinois was far from imposing and it really ramps up moving forward starting with a home tilt vs. Wisconsin. One noticable change during Nebraska's two recent wins was a far more conservative game plan. The Cornhuskers ran the ball 85 times vs. only 45 pass attempts. Check out some of the quotes following NU's win over Rutgers:

“Running the ball to win at the end is a good thing to be able to do,” Riley said. “That mentality as we go Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at Florida Atlantic Owls

Middle Tennessee State at Florida Atlantic
Saturday, 4 pm PT
CRIS Opener: Florida Atlantic -1.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Florida Atlantic -3 O/U 58.5
Recommendation: Over

Four games and four very easy "unders" for Middle Tennessee State who for a third straight game except to be without the services of quarterback Brent Stockstill. The Blue Raiders have played a weird schedule with even weirder results. In Week 1, Vanderbilt was able to control tempo and grind out a low scoring 28-6 win. In Week 2, with Stockstill under center, MTSU traveled to Syracuse in what projected to be a high scoring affair (total closed 72). Instead, the Blue Raiders purposely slowed down the pace of the game and came away with a 30-23 win. Week 3 they stood little chance as Stockstill was ruled out and Vanderbilt-esque Minnesota put the clamps down en route to a 34-3 victory. And finally last week, a game in which I felt set up well for a bet on the "over", never had a chance as MTSU and Bowling Green scored only six points combined in a very sloppy second half after 31 points in the first half.

College Football Betting News: Maryland hammered by more quarterback injuries

What you see below has not been photoshopped.

From beating Texas on the road to open the year to prepping your third and fourth string quarterbacks...such is life for the Maryland Terrapins. Kasim Hill tore his ACL in last week's loss to UCF which leaves the Terps with backup/backup Max Bortenschlager for this weekend's game at Minnesota. It's also unfortunate that Maryland doesn't have a bye week the remainder of the year and plays the top four teams in the Big Ten: at Ohio State, at Wisconsin, vs. Michigan and vs. Penn State.

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Cubs at St. Louis Cardinals

Chicago (Arrieta) +102 at St. Louis (Martinez) O/U 8
Recommendation: Chicago

Here’s the quote from Cubs manager Joe Maddon following Chicago’s blowout win in St Louis last night: “We're definitely arriving at the same mental level we've had the last two seasons. The guys have been there, done that. They know what it's about.” That’s a pretty strong ‘bet-on’ quote for a team priced as underdogs tonight, with a chance to clinch the NL Central title on their biggest rival’s home field with a victory here.

The betting markets are doing what they do – overvaluing the starting pitching matchup at the expense of all other factors. And there’s not much love for Jake Arrieta in the markets right now. Arrieta was sharp in his first start back from a stint on the DL, throwing five innings of one run ball in Milwaukee. Maddon, following that start: “I didn't know what to expect. I thought (Arrieta) was really sharp. I was really surprised at how good he looked.” Chicago’s bullpen behind him is as good as any in baseball, and it’s a fresh pen, working Read more

College Football Betting: LSU's inability to block hindering offensive improvement

09.26.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Remember all of the preseason talk about how fast and dynamic LSU's offense was going to be under newly hired offensive coordinator Matt Canada? Yeah, well, four games into the season, the Tigers look awful similar to previous editions where moving the football is a constant chore. And while 6.27 yards per play looks decent on the surface, keep in mind who LSU has played and who they will play moving forward. BYU's defense allowed over 7 yards per play to Wisconsin. Mississippi State's defense, which held LSU to 7 points and 270 total yards, coughed up 7.48 ypp to Georgia. And Syracuse's defense, while improved, took advantage of key offensive injuries to both Middle Tennessee State and Central Michigan. LSU managed to hit on a few big plays against the Orange but struggled for much of the game. The biggest issue for the Tigers is the offensive line. After rushing for over 6 yards per carry, this year's unit is averaging only 4.7 ypc. Read more
