College Football Gambling: Oregon Ducks open -7 vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

01.02.2015     11:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Oregon Ducks opened as a 7-point favorite over Ohio State for next week's college football championship in Dallas. That's where they currently stand both offshore and in Las Vegas with the exception of Pinnacle which has the Ducks -6.5 (-115). The total has seen upward pressure from 72 to as high as 74.5. This after both semifinal contests went flying over the total. Sportsmemo handicapper Rob Veno's Power Ratings show Oregon to be -7.5. Sagarin meanwhile has the game as a virtual pick 'em with Ohio State 0.43 ahead of Oregon.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Pistons at New York Knicks

Detroit -2.5 at New York O/U 198
Recommendation: Detroit


It’s no coincidence that the Detroit Pistons have reeled off a three-game winning streak following the departure of Josh Smith. The fact the Pistons decided to simply get rid of him for nothing in return tells you all you need to know about the negative impact he had on the team. Smith took bad shots, didn’t play consistent defense, and has been generally disruptive to any of the team’s internal chemistry. Detroit is 3-0 SU and ATS since that move notching double-digit wins (two of those as underdogs) against Indiana, Cleveland and Orlando. Detroit has seen a major surge in its offense during that stretch with much better ball movement and more balanced scoring. In two of those three wins, the Pistons had six players in their rotation notch double-digits. This quote from Stan Van Gundy stands out as a team with much more locker room harmony: “We've played three really good games. Our spirit in there is outstanding.” The same can’t be said about the spirit of the New York Knicks right now. It has been a dismal campaign for first-year head coach Derek Fisher Read more

Cactus Bowl Betting Preview: Oklahoma State Cowboys vs. Washington Huskies

Cactus Bowl - Tempe, Ariz.
Oklahoma State vs. Washington
Friday, January 2, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Washington -5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Washington -6.5 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Washington -4.5

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy cost me a bet in late November when he surprisingly pulled the redshirt off QB Mason Rudolph with only two games remaining in the season.  Rudolph was their heralded recruit, a top 20 QB coming out of high school and a HUGE upgrade over backup Daxx Garman who has been starting since Week 2 following the season ending injury to junior JT Walsh.

The Cowboys season long stats are going to show that they can’t throw the football very well and have a very limited offense.  But if you watched Rudolph’s first two collegiate starts, you know that those season long stats are a non-factor moving forward.  in the rain, in a very hostile Read more

Outback Bowl - Tampa, Fla.
Wisconsin vs. Auburn
Thursday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Auburn -4.5 O/U 61.5
CRIS Current: Auburn -6.5 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Auburn -3
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Over

One could certainly question the psyche of both combatants in Thursday's Outback Bowl in Tampa. On one sideline, you have defending national champion Auburn (8-4) which buckled under the weight of the nation's most difficult schedule, losing three of its final four regular season games, including a 55-44 defeat at hated rival Alabama.

On the other, there is a Wisconsin (9-3) squad which was sliced and diced by Ohio State, 59-0, in the Big 10 Championship Game. To add insult to injury, Badger head coach Gary Andersen surprisingly bolted Madison four days later, taking the Oregon State job.

Wisconsin has since hired Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst, who formerly Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Big Ten Strength of Schedule

12.31.2014     06:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cool article on the Big Ten's schedule format this season due to the inclusion of Rutgers and Maryland. Most coaches are taking an "it is what it is" approach to it. There is however unbalance when you look at it from a strength of schedule standpoint. Northwestern for example plays one of the toughest slates with two games against Wisconsin, Michigan State, Michigan, Iowa, and Illinois. Ohio State meanwhile has seemingly the easiest schedule with two games against Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Purdue, and Penn State. The Buckeyes also get Wisconsin at home and Northwestern and Rutgers on the road.


"One or two games on who you play or don't play can make a two or three-game difference in the standings,'' Michigan State coach Tom Izzo says. "I don't think we want to educate our fans on that.

"We still want to try to win championships, but that's what's a little harder for the coaches, I think, is the concept that there's a reality to it that if you

College Basketball Gambling: Bettors jump on Kentucky's potentially perfect season

12.30.2014     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We knew this one was coming. Various Las Vegas sportsbooks have been offering a prop bet on whether or not Kentucky will run the table. William Hill chucked up a 50-1 during the summer -- which was in our opinion sorta insulting given the “true” odds of the feat. Fast forward five months and that's looking like the one awesome wager! The current adjusted price is +450. We ask the question, doesn't Calipari WANT to lose a game? Isn't that the type of thing that can be used to benefit the bigger picture? In theory, yes, but there’s also that whole ego thing to contend with.


"It's pretty good six figures, too," William Hill director of trading Nick Bogdanovich said of the liability on the popular prop bet. "They keep betting it."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Top Super Bowl contenders all have flaws

12.29.2014     01:57 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’re down to a dirty dozen in the NFL, as 20 of the 32 teams saw their seasons come to a close at the conclusion of another wild and wacky Week 17.  In my Wiseguy Reports over the past two weeks, I’ve been poking holes in the fringe contenders in both conferences.  This week, I’m going to put the four favorites under the microscope.  Guess what – all four are potentially vulnerable to an upset.

Let me start with the defending champs, the Seattle Seahawks.  When Pete Carroll built up his program at USC, the Trojans weren’t a one-and-done type squad for titles -- they were in the mix year after year under his tutelage.  They played fast, they played loose – never tense or uptight -- and they consistently played their very best football down the stretch.

Seattle did just that down the stretch last year.  And they’ve certainly done that this year; going 6-0 SU and ATS since their loss at Kansas City back in Week 11.  But before we anoint the Seahawks as the first repeat Super Bowl champs since the Patriots did it following the 2004 campaign, we’ve got to put this team under the Read more

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look back at the NFL's Season Over/Under Win results. The numbers were based on the Westgate's from earlier in the summer. The league's biggest "overachievers" were the Dallas Cowboys (+4 differential) and Arizona Cardinals (+3.5). The biggest "underachievers" were the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5) and Tennessee Titans (-5). Four of the five teams lined at double-digit wins went over; the lone exception being the San Francisco 49ers. Of the 12 teams to make the playoffs, only Carolina failed to go over their win total. Miami was the only team to push. And 11 of the AFC's 16 teams went over the total.

Liberty Bowl Betting Preview: West Virginia Mountaineers vs. Texas A&M Aggies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Liberty Bowl - Memphis, Tenn.
West Virginia vs. Texas A&M
Monday, 11 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
West Virginia -3.5 O/U 64
CRIS Current: West Virginia -1.5 O/U 65
Rob Veno's Power Rating: West Virginia -1.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: West Virginia

Five games into the season, the Texas A&M Aggies had aspirations of qualifying for college football's inaugural four-team playoff. First-time starting quarterback Kenny Hill was even being mentioned as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate.

As the season played out, however, the Aggies, who rose to as high as No. 6 in the polls, were clearly identified as a pretender, losing five of their final seven regular season games and seeing one-time shooting star Hill replaced under center by ballyhooed true freshman Kyle Allen.

On Monday, the Aggies (7-5) of the SEC West seek to end 2014's long and winding road on a Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Tennessee State Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers

Tennessee State at Tennessee -21.5 O/U 127
Recommendation: Under


Despite the coaching change from Cuonzo Martin to Donnie Tyndall, the Vols really haven't changed much with a vast majority of their games of the slow paced, low scoring variety. With the exception of their contest at NC State that went wild the last 10 minutes (58 points), UT's recent game scores have been 126, 129, 122, 119, and 118. Tennessee should have no trouble keeping Tennessee State under wraps offensively. The Tigers are in complete rebuilding mode and feature a roster with little to do DI experience. Against DI foes, they've notched north of 60 points only twice. And when asked to step up in class they scored a combined 82 points vs. Vanderbilt and Virginia with both games going under today's posted total. The concern here is if the home side goes wild and the second half turns into a pick-up game. The Vols however have yet to show the ability to score at will with their biggest win of the season coming by 12 points. On Monday we saw them grind out a 64-54 win vs. Mercer. I look for a similar output this evening.
