NHL Handicapping: Dallas Stars are a bet on squad heading into season

10.06.2014     01:04 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NHL will drop the puck on the 2014-15 season later this week which gives me time to break down a few teams in the Western Conference from a “buy” and “sell” perspective. The conference was a beast last season and I expect it to remain highly competitive with several legitimate Stanley Cup contenders.

Buy the Dallas Stars
Head coach Lindy Ruff did a tremendous job in his first season behind the bench in Big D as the Stars played their best hockey down the stretch and in the playoffs where they gave top seed Anaheim all kinds of fits before falling 4-2. Expect them to continue to build on that success this season. The scoring was led by the incomparable duo of Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, who each scored at least 34 goals and 79 points last season. Dallas’ biggest shortcoming was it lacked supplemental scoring but GM Jim Nill has done a lot to change that by trading for Jason Spezza and signing Ales Hemsky. Spezza is an injury waiting to happen but if he can stay healthy (a big if), he will add much needed secondary scoring to lend support to Seguin, Benn and Valeri Nichushkin who impressed in his rookie Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Oklahoma Sooners at TCU Horned Frogs

Oklahoma at TCU
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -5 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: OKlahoma -4.5 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma -6.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: TCU

Playing true to preseason projections, the Oklahoma Sooners have performed like legitimate national championship playoff contenders through the season's opening month.

However, like all teams hoping to ultimately land a spot in college football's inaugural version of the Final Four, the Sooners certainly have a handful of circled dates on their schedule. Those games that, at least on paper, pose the type of challenge that could derail the best laid national playoff plans.

One of those potential land mines comes Saturday when fourth-ranked Oklahoma travels to Fort Worth to tangle with the TCU Horned Frogs.

Under first-year co-offensive coordinators Doug Meachem and Sonny Cumbie, TCU, which is Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Washington Capitals Season O/U Points

Washington Capitals
Season Over/Under Points 88.5
Recommendation: Over


Last week my blog centered around the Florida Panthers and my recommendation to go Under their season point/win total.  This week with baseball winding down and few games on the card I decided to once again focus on a specific NHL team and see if we can beat the market.

The Washington Capitals come into the 2014-15 with new coach Barry Trotz at the helm.  The departure of Adam Oates behind the bench and the addition of longtime Nashville Predators coach Trotz has me immediately looking to back a talented yet underachieving Capitals team.  The past seven seasons have seen the Caps finish with greater than 88.5 points (90, 97.4 extrapolated in a shorten season, 92, 107, 121, 108, and 94 points).  Washington has been on a downward turn the past three seasons, but a change in system and style will catapult them back into the top of the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks vs. Texas A&M Aggies

Arkansas vs. Texas A&M (Arlington)
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Texas A&M -10 O/U 72
CRIS Current: Texas A&M -9 O/U 71.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Texas A&M -14
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Arkansas

In a renewal of an old Southwest Conference rivalry, the sixth-ranked Texas A&M Aggies (4-0) and the vastly-improved Arkansas Razorbacks (3-1) bring contrasting offensive styles to Saturday's SEC West showdown at Arlington's AT&T Stadium.

On one hand, Kevin Sumlin's Aggies spread the field, depending heavily on sophomore quarterback Kenny Hill to distribute the ball to a host of talented receivers utilizing a scheme designed to fatigue the defense and prevent substitutions.

Meanwhile, second-year Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema has brought his old-style smashmouth ground game to the Ozarks from Wisconsin. After going winless in SEC play in his Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at San Francisco 49ers

Philadelphia at San Francisco
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
San Francisco -3.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: San Francisco -5 o/U 50.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Francisco -5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Philadelphia

There’s something rotten in San Francisco, but the betting markets are just starting to notice.  That gives us tremendous value betting against a team that is supposed to be amongst the very elite of the NFL this year...except they’re not!

San Fran is broken on both sides of the football.  The 49ers offensive line did not play well throughout the preseason, despite the fact that every pundit and every website described their OL as elite.  Colin Kaepernick did not respond well to pressure; their running game didn’t produce yards and first downs, and the Niners offense did nothing in August.

Fast forward to September and we’ve seen more Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Week 3 Betting Recap

09.22.2014     07:51 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’re three weeks into the new NFL season and I’ve already got some pointspread and totals streakers to write about.  Three teams are 3-0 ATS, four more have yet to cover a pointspread. Four teams are 3-0 to the Over; five more are 3-0 to the Under. Who are these teams and why are they trending early? Most importantly, can we expect them to continue to trend in the same direction moving forward? Read on to find out.

I’ll focus here on the pointspread streakers, saving the totals streakers for a thorough look next week. That being said, I will list the early season totals streakers here, so you don’t have to go through the trouble of looking them up. 3-0 to the Over: Browns, Jaguars, Colts and Eagles. 3-0 to the Under: Bengals, Cardinals, Bills, Vikings and Titans.

The NFL is a parity filled league, and pointspreads can adjust rather dramatically based on a single early season performance. A big Week 1 or Week 2 victory, therefore, makes it more difficult to cover the spread the following week. Only three teams have managed to avoid an ATS defeat through the first three weeks of the season. All three of those squads were less than Read more

College Football Betting: Have bettors overreacted on California and West Virginia?

09.17.2014     07:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Every college football season there are a handful of teams that take massive jumps in the eyes of bettors after tepid preseason expectations and solid play the first few weeks of the regular season. Two teams that comes to mind are West Virginia and California. The Mountaineers were lined in the neighborhood of 4.5 over/under wins and looked to be headed in the wrong direction under Dana Holgorsen. They instead opened the season with a competitive showing and pointspread cover against Alabama (33-23). Against Towson, WVU was laying -24.5 and rolled to a 54-0 win. And then last week, catching +3.5/+3 on the road, beat Maryland 40-37. This week, West Virginia plays host to Oklahoma. The Golden Nugget originally lined the Sooners as 17-point chalk. On Sunday, CRIS opened the game -12.5 and it has since been bet down to as low as -7. Rob Veno's Power Rating makes and adjustment towards WVU but not nearly as much with Oklahoma -14.5.

Similar situation with Cal who opened the year with an outright win at Northwestern. They followed it up with a 55-14 win over Sacramento State as 27-point chalk. There was no Golden Nugget GOY line on this week's matchup at Arizona but based on Read more

NFL Gambling: Buffalo Bills yet to play truly up-tempo

09.16.2014     07:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot of the talk during the preseason centered on how fast the Buffalo Bills wanted to play offensively. Last season, before quarterback EJ Manuel got hurt, the Bills averaged 77 plays per game. Since then, while not slow, they haven’t lived up the the up-tempo "hype." Through their first two games of the regular season, both wins, the Bills have run a total of 116 plays. Some of that number was a result of playing with a big lead in last week's win over the Dolphins. Note than including the preseason, Buffalo has gone under the total in six of seven games. The lone game to go over, in Week 2 of the preseason, cashed by a single point. For Week 3, Buffalo plays host to San Diego. The Bills opened as a pick 'em but have since been bet up to -2.5. The opening total of 44.5 was bet down to 44.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Week 2 Betting Recap

09.15.2014     07:18 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
My September NFL betting mantra is relatively simple.  It can be stated in one sentence: “Bet on good teams, and bet against bad teams.”   This strategy tends to be at its best  very early in the season, before the betting markets catch up to how good or how bad teams actually are compared to last year. 

That strategy did not fare well this past weekend for two reasons – many of the good teams played poorly and a good handful of the bad teams stepped up.  Of the seven top teams in my power ratings, only two managed to cover the pointspread on Sunday (Cincinnati and New England).  Seattle, New Orleans and San Francisco all lost SU as favorites.  Denver won, by not my enough of a margin to cover the number.  And Green Bay pushed against the closing number but lost for anyone who bet the Packers throughout the course of the week.

On the other end of the spectrum, many of the bottom teams in my power ratings stepped up and played a good game.  The worst two teams in the league – Jacksonville and Oakland, according to my numbers – are both 0-2 SU, 0-2 ATS.  Other weak teams like the Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Tennessee Titans

Dallas at Tennessee
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -3 O/U 47.5
CRIS Current: Tennessee -3 O/U 49.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Tennessee -1.5
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Tennessee

Much has been made of the Dallas Cowboys’ struggling defense and with good reason. They were terrible last year and lost several key players including MLB Sean Lee and DE Demarcus Ware in the offseason as well as CB Orlando Scandrick for the first four games due to a suspension. Last week they took another hit with weakside linebacker Justin Durant going down against San Francisco. He will be replaced by rookie Anthony Hitchens in the lineup this week against the Titans. Durant’s play-calling duties will now be handled by strongside linebacker Bruce Carter.

While the defensive issues are very much a factor for the Cowboys, the offense has come concerns as well. The expectation was that Dallas would be very Read more
