CFL Week 5 Betting News and Notes

07.30.2014     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here is my Week 5 CFL News and Notes as we examine each team from a betting perspective.

Toronto Argonauts (1-4 SU, 1-4 ATS)
Toronto just can’t be expected to be competitive and move the football offensively until they get some of their injury-decimated receiving corps back. Saskatchewan drilled Toronto 37-9 on Saturday night as quarterback Ricky Ray and the Argos’ struggling offense once again sputtered with stalled drives, turnovers, and penalties throughout the game. They got off to a horrible start an interception and fumble on their first two drives which led directly to Saskatchewan touchdowns. The revamped defense struggled and is being asked to carry a team that when healthy is very capable offensively. There is a possibility that not a single one of Toronto’s top four wideouts will return vs. Montreal. Head coach Scott Milanovich held an impromptu meeting with the team’s veteran players prior to the blowout loss against Saskatchewan and it didn’t help. Toronto is saying the right things this week but a third straight road game in as many weeks against a rested and ready Montreal squad won’t be Read more

NFL Gambling: A look back at last year's 20* winner on Kansas City Over 7.5 wins

07.29.2014     07:19 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Below is Teddy Covers' write-up for last year's NFL Season O/U Wins Report 20* winner. This year's report is currently available for purchase and will be released this afternoon. Teddy includes in-depth written analysis on all of plays.


20* Big Ticket: Kansas City OVER 7.5 Wins

The Chiefs are the poster child for the ‘expected to be the most improved team in the NFL’ category.  Quite literally, just about every statistic and metric that we have to predict NFL success or failure points towards an immediate turnaround in Kansas City this fall.  And when we start to break down the offseason moves for KC, the case for dramatic improvement is perfectly clear.

It all starts with last year, when KC was an injury riddled mess with a lame duck head coach and a consistent void at the quarterback position.  The Chiefs were tied dead last in the NFL in turnover margin in 2012, finishing with an average of -1.5 turnover differential per game.  Only five players started all 16 games; fewer than the number of players who finished the season on injured Read more

NFL Gambling: The impact quarterbacks have on Season Over/Under Win totals Part I

07.28.2014     06:59 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I’ve been writing about NFL Season Win Totals for the last few weeks, using what I call “advanced metric schedule analysis.”  This week, the time has come to write about another stage of the 2014 pre-preseason team analysis that affects every win total on the board – quarterbacks.

Why quarterbacks?  Because more than ever, in the modern ‘pass happy’ era of NFL Football, the quarterback is the most important position on any team.  Of course a great quarterback can’t be great without a decent receiving corps or a decent offensive line, so those must be included in the equation when discussing quarterbacks. 

Here’s what I wrote last year in this space:

“The pecking order for NFL quarterbacks is well established.  Most of the best quarterbacks play for the best teams.  Peyton Manning in Denver, Eli Manning in New York, Tom Brady in New England, Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh, Drew Brees in New Orleans and Joe Flacco in Baltimore all wear Super Bowl rings.  All seven guys play for teams that are perennial playoff teams, and all seven of Read more

NFL Gambling: Using Strength of Schedule to Handicap Season Over/Under Wins Part II

07.28.2014     06:48 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two weeks ago in this space, I looked back at last year’s final NFL standings and discussed the impact of strength of schedule models on those results.  I differentiated between mainstream widely available numbers for the 2013 strength of schedule (simply adding up wins and losses for every opponent) and my own formula, relying on power rating numbers from the week that the game was played. 

The goal was simple – getting more accurate numbers to properly assess last year’s results in a strength of schedule context as a starting point for 2014.

We’re done with last year now. This week, I’ll focus on the 2014 NFL strength of schedule as they relate to season win totals.  Once again, my goal is to differentiate between the mainstream numbers and the meaningful ones.

Google “2014 NFL Strength of Schedule” and you’ll find countless charts exactly like the one below…

CFL Week 4 Betting News and Notes

Here is my CFL Week 4 News & Notes as I take a look at each team in the CFL providing observations, analysis and a glimpse into what is to come for all 9 CFL teams following Week 4.

Toronto Argonauts (1-3 SU, 1-3 ATS)

The frustrations were clearly evident with the Argos after their painful 18-17 loss to the expansion Ottawa Redblacks in what was Ottawa’s first home game since rejoining the CFL this season. Toronto finally got a strong performance from their rebuilt defense but oddly enough it was QB Ricky Ray and the offense (the supposed strongest part of the team) that simply couldn’t get anything going as they sputtered with stalled drives, turnovers and penalties throughout the game. It was a game that was there for the taking for Toronto but they just couldn’t make any key plays to turn it into a win. Now they sit at 1-3 after wasting a great performance from the defense and now must face the well-rested and likely angry Saskatchewan Roughriders who are coming off their bye and it’s worth noting Saskatchewan lost their game before the bye to this very Argos team in Toronto 48-15 Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Rays at St. Louis Cardinals

Tampa Bay (Odorizzi) +140 at St. Louis (Wainwright) O/U 7
Recommendation: Tampa Bay


In general, I’m comfortable laying a bit more juice in the second half of the MLB season than I am in the first half, simply because there tend to be a good handful of pretty bad teams that stop showing up after the All-Star Break.  These are teams that are profitable to fade at every reasonable opportunity, even if you have to lay a price to do so.
 
For example, my clients and I bet against the Rockies last night, laying in the -140/-145 range with a road favorite.  Washington won 7-2 as the Rockies stumbled and bumbled their way to a sixth consecutive defeat.

At the same time, you’ll find some very attractively priced ‘live’ underdogs post-break, and I tend to widen my range towards bigger dogs like this one.  There are consistently solid opportunities for fading favorites that shouldn’t be laying big prices (think 2012 Red Sox Read more

CFL Handicapper Free Play: Toronto Argonauts Ottawa RedBlacks

Toronto at Ottawa +1.5 O/U 53
Recommendation: Ottawa


After last week’s 27-11 loss in Edmonton – one they may have looked past – the Ottawa RedBlacks will host their first home game in nine years since the last franchise folded. Ottawa players have been talking all week about how big of a moment this is for the organization and city so I'm expecting a Grey Cup-level of focus and intensity. As poorly as their offense played in the loss to Edmonton, quarterback Henry Burris and the Redblacks are taking a severe step down in defensive class vs. Toronto. The Argos’ defense is completely rebuilt and it showed with 79 points allowed in two of their first three games. Toronto should be the ideal foe for the Ottawa offense to move the football. Toronto's offense is also going through its share of ups and downs. Quarterback Ricky Ray is a veteran who normally bounces back strong after a bad game but he’s working with a very depleted receiving corps which will be playing without their top three weapons – Chad Owens, Jason Barnes and Andre Durie are all out indefinitely due to injury. That pretty much leaves Toronto with one Read more

College Football Gambling: UNLV regains bowl eligibility

07.17.2014     06:39 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There was some confusion on yesterday's Sportsmemo Podcast regarding UNLV's "status" with the NCAA due to various academic shortcomings. Following their first bowl berth since 2000, the Rebels were initially banned from the 2014-15 postseason due to a low APR score. At the time, it was the first such ban for a FBS school in the APR's 10-year history – which seems ridiculously odd. Not that UNLV's kids weren’t tanking classes but that out of a 10-year span and over 120 teams, UNLV's kids were the only ones tanking classes. Fast forward to late June and due to a "miscalculation" by the NCAA, the Rebels are back to being postseason eligible. There are still lingering issues like potential player transfers as well as the 13-game schedule UNLV put together as a result of the initial ban. Now they must go 7-6 as oppose to 6-6 in order to go bowling. And Read more

Here is my Week 3 CFL News and Notes as we examine each team from a betting perspective.

Toronto Argonauts (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
The pattern of inconsistency has continued for Toronto. They were horrible in Week 1, great in Week 2, and looked bad again in Week 3. Compounding the problem is that injuries are piling up at an alarming rate. They were already without two key receivers, Andre Durie and Jason Barnes, last week and now Chad Owens will not suit up for Week 4 and beyond after suffering a foot injury in the loss to Calgary. That leaves quarterback Ricky Ray without his three top receivers this week. It also puts pressure on the Argos’ mediocre ground game to decrease the number of possessions, control the clock and to attempt to protect a rebuilt defense that has been gashed for 79 points in two of their first three games. The lone positive is Toronto has strong long-term 13-4-1 ATS track record on the highway as they visit the expansion Ottawa Redblacks this week.

Montreal Alouettes (1-2 SU, 1-2 ATS)
Just when Montreal’s offense finally has a breakthrough performance it is the usually stout defense Read more
