College Football Betting Preview: North Texas Mean Green at Iowa Hawkeyes

North Texas at Iowa
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener:
Iowa -24.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Iowa -24.5 O/U 54
Recommendation: Under

In order to get this game over the current total of 54, you'll need faith that North Texas can not only move the football but put points on the board. Dating back to last season, the Mean Green haven't been able to do either. Last season, playing in defense-less C-USA, North Texas averaged only 21.9 ppg. This season, they managed only 240 total yards against a well below average SMU defense and last week struggled for three quarter to score against another sub-par defense in Rice. Had it not been for a garbage time 93-yard touchdown pass, North Texas may not have topped 400 yards of offense. Now they go on the road to face a very capable Iowa defense.

North Texas is in a bind because quarterback Andrew McNulty is completing 50% of his passes meaning in order to stick around, they'll need to run the football. The problem with that is Iowa hasn't allowed anything on the ground this season with three opponents combining for 153 yards at 1.87 ypc. Barring any short Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Early season college football money makers

09.21.2015     09:15 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’re already a quarter of the way through the college football season, with the first three weekends in the rear view mirror.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’m going to focus on the early season pointspread outliers.  Of the 128 FBS teams that we see lines on every week, 13 have gone 3-0 ATS to open the season. Ten have gone 0-3 ATS.  Because of space limitations, I’m going to focus on the 3-0 teams this week, while taking a closer look at the struggling ATS squads in next week’s article. 

What should we expect from these hot ATS teams moving forward?  And how can we look for those outlier teams from the get-go next year?  Read on to find out.

Ole Miss, NC State, Northwestern, Ohio, Air Force, BYU, Buffalo, Middle Tennessee State, Rice, Southern Miss, Washington, Central Michigan and SMU.  The only obvious commonality between those 13 squads is their 3-0 ATS mark.  I could easily add the likes of Texas Tech and Colorado State to this list, both 2-0-1 ATS.  And 2-0 ATS Navy hasn’t played three games yet; worthy of inclusion into this discussion. 

Even if we Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Balitmore Ravens at Denver Broncos

Baltimore at Denver
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Denver -4 O/U 52
CRIS Current: Denver -4.5 O/U 48.5
Recommendation: Under

Few teams in the NFL have changed their expected gameplan as much as the Denver Broncos here in 2015.  Last year, Denver spent the majority of the season in a quick strike, pass heavy offense.  Denver ranked among the top five teams in the NFL, averaging 6.0 yards per play.  Peyton Manning threw for more than 4,700 yards, completing 39 touchdown passes and more than 66% of his throws.  Meanwhile, the Broncos defense was riddled with key injuries, forcing them into ‘Offensive Shootout’ mode on a fairly regular basis.

But Manning’s arm strength clearly declined down the stretch last year and new head coach Gary Kubiak and his staff have made it very clear – they’re going to be a run first offense this year with CJ Anderson and Ronnie Hillman getting the lion’s share of carries.  Manning is not expected to stretch the field with his arm.  We’re going to see a concerted effort to keep Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Virginia Cavaliers

Notre Dame at Virginia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -10 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -11.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Virginia

There is not much to dislike about Notre Dame’s impressive 38-3 romp over the Texas Longhorns last week. For starters, they outgained the Longhorns by a stunning 527-163 margin. Quarterback Malik Zaire was terrific completing 19-for-22 passes for 313 yards with 3 TDs and no picks and the ground attack led by C.J. Prosise and Josh Adams combined for 147 yards and 5.88 yards per carry. It was dominance on both sides of the line of scrimmage for Notre Dame who allowed just 60 rushing yards at a paltry 2.1 yards per carry clip and yielded barely over 100 yards passing amazing when you consider UT was playing the entire game from behind. However, as a result, we appear to be laying a tax with the Irish to go along with the early market support.

Virginia didn’t play its best in a 34-16 loss at UCLA but it is never an easy travel/scheduling situation Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox

Toronto (Dickey) -147 at Boston (Owens) O/U 10
Recommendation: Toronto


Boston's Henry Owens has some upside as a former first round draft pick but he's walking into his toughest start of his young career tonight against Toronto. Owens has shown the ability to miss bats with 29 strikeouts in 30.2 innings but it's his other numbers that have me concerned. For starters, he's shown some extreme fly ball tendencies with a 29-to-64 GB-to-FB ratio. It's resulted in six home runs allowed; all of which in three starts at Fenway. That's not a very positive profile against Toronto's right-handed, power lineup. On the season, the Blue Jays owns lefty splits of .358 OBP, .474 SLG, .832 OPS, and .191 ISO -- all of which tops in MLB. RA Dickey flipped the script on his season back in June with a 2.76 ERA over his last 11 starts. And Dickey has done an admirable job in Fenway with a 3.60 ERA and four home runs allowed over the last three seasons (5 starts). I'm a little bit surprised the Rod Sox have hung on as well as they have (65-72) despite all of the preseason expectations. In fact, after dropping seven straight in late June they've posted a respectable 23-18 Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Power Ratings 1-32

09.07.2015     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NFL regular season starts on Thursday.  Here’s how I have the 32 teams ranked heading into the campaign, with a quick blurb each squad.

1. New England Patriots - With Tom Brady set to open the season as the starting quarterback, the defending champs are the team to beat, worthy of my #1 ranking heading into the regular season.

2. Seattle Seahawks - Seattle enjoyed the best yards-per-rush differential between offense and defense last year, but they’ve got significant offensive line question marks as they head to St Louis for Week 1.

3. Green Bay Packers - The Packers passing game was second to none in the NFL last year, but the loss of Jordy Nelson leaves Aaron Rodgers without his top target for the entire season.

4. Indianapolis Colts - Most elite contenders face a tougher than average schedule because they’ve got to face other contending teams.  Indy, however, plays only four games against playoff teams from last year.

5. Denver Broncos - Peyton Manning is the oldest starting quarterback in the NFL by a wide margin, and he’s coming off a season where his arm strength noticeably declined down the Read more

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Philadelphia Eagles at New York Jets

Philadelphia -5 at NY Jets O/U 44.5
Recommendation: Philadelphia


It’s not hard to make a case for the Eagles in any preseason game.  After all, Philly is 3-0 SU and ATS in the preseason this year, scoring 36 or more points in every game.  Last year, they scored 28+ in every game as well, a consistent offensive juggernaut here in August.   They beat the Jets 37-7 in their preseason finale last year, hanging 568 yards of offense in the process.  And there’s ample reason to expect a similar result tonight.

Let’s start with the fact that the Jets are likely to be a no-show this evening.  First year head coach Todd Bowles isn’t expected to play starters, and his second and third teamers will be playing special teams as well as trying to keep up with Philly’s fast pace:  Bowles:  "It’s going to be tough because they have to play special teams as well as play their position.  So there’s going to be a lot of heavy breathing, but you have to focus in on your assignment and...I want to see if these guys can play."

The Jets have won each of their Read more
