College Football Handicapping: Week 13 Injury Report

11.21.2013     04:26 PM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Utah quarterback Travis Wilson is out for the rest of the season and his career could be in jeopardy after he sustained a concussion two weeks ago in a 20-19 home loss to Arizona St. Wilson finished 2013 with a 16-16 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Utes’ sophomore Adam Schulz started in last week’s 44-21 loss at Oregon, completing 13-of-30 passes for 181 yards with one TD and one interception. In four games this year, Schulz has connected on just 35-of-75 throws (46.7%) for 428 yards with a 2-2 TD-INT ratio.

Florida QB Tyler Murphy is ‘questionable’ vs. Georgia Southern due to a shoulder injury. Making his first career start and taking his first snap at the collegiate level last week, Sklyer Mornhinweg completed 10-of-13 passes for 107 yards in a 19-14 loss at South Carolina. UF didn’t put too much on his plate with most of his throws consisting of screen passes and short patterns. However, the redshirt freshman should be credited for being accurate and only making one mistake, an interception on the final drive with just over one minute remaining. The Gators are favored by 28 against the Eagles.

College Football Handicapping: Washington's Price doubtful vs. Oregon State

Washington at Oregon State

Looks like Washington is preparing to go with freshman quarterback Cyler Miles for Saturday's game at Oregon State. Starter Keith Price (shoulder) left last week's game against UCLA. Sportsmemo Handicapper Rob Veno’s Power Rating shows Washington -1 based on Price being healthy.

"With what our medical team has done, in my opinion (they) have done a great job already identifying it," Sarkisian said. "The swelling is reducing rapidly. His movement is much better today than it was the last couple of days. So we'll see where he's at Thursday."

For Thursday’s AAC matchup vs. South Florida, Houston RB Ryan Jackson is ‘questionable’ after possibly sustaining a concussion in last week’s 49-14 win at Rutgers. Jackson has rushed 95 times for a team-high 477 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.0 yards per carry.

USC is hoping to get star WR Marquise Lee (knee) back for Friday’s game at Oregon State. Lee missed last week’s win over Utah and is ‘questionable’ against the Beavers. The Trojans will be without starting TE Randall Telfer and the laundry list of defensive injuries continues to grow. DE Morgan Breslin, who had a team-high 13 sacks in 2012, remains ‘out’ with a hip injury. Starting LB Lamar Dawson was recently lost to a season-ending injury along with reserve safety Gerald Bowman. Starting cornerback Anthony Brown (arm) is also ‘out’ at OSU.

Mike Riley’s team has plenty of its own injury concerns. On the last play of Oregon State’s 20-12 home loss to Stanford last week, WR Kevin Cummings was lost for the season with a broken wrist. Cummings had 23 receptions for 254 yards and two TDs during his senior Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Stanford Cardinal at Oregon State Beavers

Stanford at Oregon State
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Stanford -6.5 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Stanford -4 O/U 56
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Stanford -5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Oregon State

I’ve been able to cash in back-to-back weeks using Oregon State as part of my client card and although this is a major step up in class for the Beavers, I’m still inclined to look toward them as a home underdog.

Stanford has been excellent at shutting down the run ranking 18th in the nation but its pass defense hasn’t been quite as stout and throwing the football is pretty much what makes up the entire Oregon State offense. Stanford is allowing 247.1 passing yards per game which ranks 87th nationally. Quarterback Sean Mannion has had a stellar season as the nation’s leader in a number of passing categories, including yards (2,992) and touchdown passes (29). Read more

In a perfect world, North Carolina's upcoming schedule would serve as an opportunity to "buy low" on the Tar Heels. But Thursday’s loss to Miami was one I don't think this team is going to be able to shake off anytime soon. After a 1-4 start, UNC was given an opportunity to save its season with a primetime game against the top 10 Hurricanes. It was unquestionably UNC's best effort I had seen and a game they probably should have won. But Miami made some plays late and left the Tar Heels 1-5 after relatively high preseason expectations. If North Carolina plays like they did against the 'Canes the rest of the way out (vs. BC, at NCST, vs. UVA, at PITT, vs. ODU, vs. DUKE) they could conceivably finish 7-5. But toughness is an issue with this club and it wouldn't surprise me to see them lose a few of those games outright.

Up 28-7 with 8 minutes to go in the third quarter, it looked like Louisville was going to pull away from UCF and remain undefeated. Instead, the Knights fought back and it was clear that the Cardinals didn't know how to respond to actually being in a competitive football game. It was fitting that the final box score in terms of first down, Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 7 Injury Report

Louisville WR DaVante Parker is ‘questionable’ tonight vs. Rutgers with a shoulder injury. Parker has 21 receptions for 375 yards and six TDs.

Rutgers LB Jamal Merrell will be back tonight after missing three games with a kidney ailment. Merrell was the Scarlet Knights’ leading returning tackler who had 7.5 stops for losses last year. RU running back Paul James will miss his second straight game at Louisville. James has run for 573 yards and six TDs this year.

South Carolina All-American DE and future first-round pick Jadeveon Clowney didn’t go in last week’s 35-28 win over Kentucky. For the third straight game, the Gamecocks burned their backers by giving up another backdoor cover. Clowney (bruised ribs) remains ‘questionable’ for Saturday’s game at Arkansas. The air seems to have been cleared with Steve Spurrier and Clowney making comments this week about his commitment to the team that came in question when he told his coaches he couldn’t play against UK. On the complete flip side, Connor Shaw did play against the ‘Cats after hurting his shoulder the week before. Shaw showed no signs of pain in Read more

Florida senior defensive tackle Dominique Easley was lost for the season when he tore his ACL at Tuesday’s practice on a non-contact play. Easley was en route to garnering first-team All-American honors and a spot early in the first round of the NFL Draft. His loss will certainly hurt but if there’s a bright side, UF’s defensive line has incredible depth. This injury comes on the heels of starting quarterback Jeff Driskel’s season-ender in the win over Tennessee. Driskel underwent successful surgery on his broken tibia Wednesday and will most likely be granted a medical redshirt. Tyler Murphy, a junior who was a two-star recruit and saw five different quarterbacks take snaps before him during his career, played well against the Vols. He will make his first career road start Saturday at Kentucky.

Arkansas quarterback Brandon Allen, who has a 5/1 touchdown-to-interception ratio, sat out last week’s 28-24 loss at Rutgers. As of Thursday morning, Allen remained ‘doubtful’ (bruised shoulder) for Saturday’s home date vs. Texas A&M. Due to his uncertain status, there still wasn’t a line available. A.J. Derby is expected Read more

College Football Betting: Colorado prepares for Oregon State after three weeks off

Colorado at Oregon State -10.5 O/U 60.5

Unique situation for Colorado after having its game against Fresno State canceled followed with a bye week before traveling to Oregon State.

"Hopefully, we'll have fresh legs," coach Mike MacIntyre said after Monday's practice. "We're still getting in that game mode, that game thing where you click in and don't get as tired sometimes. We've been trying to practice hard. We've been trying to run to the football. We've been trying to go high tempo, to keep that energy going.

"But there's nothing like simulating a game."

It is usually Boise State who sits back and capitalizes on other teams' mistakes not the other way around. Friday's game against Fresno was one of the more sloppy games I've ever seen out of the Broncos yet they somehow covered the number (+3.5) and had a chance to win the game outright. Down 17-10 early in the second quarter, Boise scored a touchdown but failed on a mysterious two-point conversion (note that the final score was 41-40). Miss one two-point conversion and you're likely to go for two again at some point. Midway through the fourth quarter the Broncos cut the lead to 34-32 and had yet another failed two-point conversion. On their next drive they finally cracked the code and put eight on the board but it put them up only six. Fresno would score a touchdown with three minutes left to give them the 41-40 lead for good. All told, Boise was 1-for-3 on two-point conversions, 1-for-4 on fourth down conversions, and committed two turnovers. Happy to kick PATs, Fresno had no turnovers, was 2-for-2 on fourth downs, and moved to 3-0 on the season.

It is hard for serious bettors to be active in laying huge points because there are typically more factors involved than Read more

College Football Betting: Oregon State not willing to give up on ground attack

09.18.2013     07:55 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Oregon State -11 at San Diego State O/U 54.5

Because of all their injuries along the offensive line, Oregon State has had a very difficult time running the football. Against Hawaii and Utah, the Beavers rushed 61 times but produced only 105 yards. According to offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf despite the team's success throwing the football (1,316 yards, 12 TDs, 1 INT) they aren't going to give up on the run game just yet.

“When we’re not running the ball very well, you’re going to get a lot more coverage looks, tougher to throw the ball, more drop-eight,” offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said. “You’re going to get more guys in coverage taking away those receivers. If you can’t run the ball
