College Football Handicapping: San Diego State to keep it simple on offense vs. Air Force

12.02.2015     10:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With quarterback Maxwell Smith out for Saturday's Mountain West Championship vs. Air Force, San Diego State has been pretty vocal about playing it conservative with backup Christian Chapman under center. With Smith, San Diego State has quietly been one of the more effective offenses in the Mountain West with 6.11 yards per play in league play, behind only Air Force (6.55 ypp). Note also that the Aztecs didn't play the Falcons during the regular season therefore didn't spend much of any time during training camp practicing for the triple option. That said, SDSU won last year's meeting 30-14 and lost to Navy in the postseason, 17-16.


"We got good confidence in Christian Chapman. He throws the ball well, he is quick on his feet, he can get out of trouble. What he doesn't have is the experience," Long said. "We are going to probably have to be very conservative on offense. Make sure he's comfortable with everything we ask him to do. But he's going to have to throw the ball and complete some passes to give us a chance to

College Football Betting Preview: Texas Longhorns at Baylor Bears

Texas at Baylor
Saturday, 9 am PT
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -20 O/U 68.5
CRIS Current: Baylor -20.5 O/U 68.5
Recommendation: Baylor
 
This BIG XII showdown pins two in-state rivals playing to boost their postseason resumes. Baylor is in all likelihood eliminated from the playoff but still has a shot at a Sugar Bowl invite. The Longhorns are also fighting for a bowl berth. Though they should have been eliminated following their 48-45 loss to Texas Tech, at least two 5-7 teams will be selected for a bowl game according to the NCAA. Given the strength of Texas' brand many fans think they would be in, but NCAA officials state the 5-7 teams selected will be determined by Academic Progress Rate which in Texas’ case (958) probably won’t be high enough to qualify. In any case with Baylor motivated and injuries mounting, it will be a tall task for Charlie Strong’s Longhorns in Waco.

The Longhorns have avoided major injuries for much of the season but that run of good fortune came to a screeching halt on Thanksgiving against Texas Tech. Linebacker Peter Jinkens (torn ACL), right guard Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Florida State Seminoles at Florida Gators

Florida State at Florida
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Florida pk O/U 435
CRIS Current: Florida State -2.5 O/U 43
Recommendation: Florida

Florida State has moved to the favorite role for this annual in-state rivalry showdown but I’m not sure it is warranted. It appears that bettors flocking to the FSU side are reacting to Florida’s lackluster overtime win over Florida Atlantic last week.

Both teams' SOS is similar but a closer looks shows Florida has been far more challenged against upper-tier competition and fared extremely well in those games. The Gators scored straight up and ATS wins over Georgia, Ole Miss, and Tennessee. Their lone loss when asked to step up in class was a touchdown defeat in Baton Rouge against an LSU that at the time was undefeated. Florida State meanwhile has played only one team currently in ranked among Sagarin's top 30. That of course was against Clemson as the Seminoles managed to slip under the number but were outgained heavily, 512-361. The Tigers are obviously more potent with the ball compared to the Gators, but it was a similar Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Georgia at Georgia Tech
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Georgia -5 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Georgia -4 O/U 48
Recommendation: Under

Like a lot of teams, Georgia started the year with the hopes of marching up and down the field at a fast pace. But following an injury to running back Nick Chubb and the realization that quarterback Greyson Lambert was at-best a game manager, the Bulldogs have morphed into a grind-it-out, under-type squad the back half of the season. Their last five games have produced an average of only 29.6 ppg and considering the Dawgs went 4-1 in those contests, there's no reason to think they'll change their stripes. Head coach Mark Richt had this to say about his team's current philosophy: ""We've decided to slow the game down a little bit," Richt said. "Decided to try to control the ball a little bit more. You know, do things that aren't really sexy when it comes to football, offensive football, but things that we thought were going to help us win."

Georgia Tech has also been forced to go the pedestrian route due to instability along the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers at Minnesota Golden Gophers

Wisconsin at Minnesota
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - Big Ten Network
CRIS Opener:
Wisconsin -2.5 O/U NL
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -2.5 O/U NL
Recommendation: Minnesota

It's a Big Ten classic rivalry match-up as the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Wisconsin Badgers in the battle for Paul Bunyan's Axe. The Gophers beat Illinois 32-26 at home last week and now need just one more victory to become bowl eligible for the fourth consecutive year. It's been a rough one for Minnesota with Jerry Kill forced to retire and countless injuries throughout the season. Quarterback Mitch Leidner said he will play despite injuring his hand and foot against the Illini.

Wisconsin comes into the game 8-3 after dropping a 13-7 decision to Northwestern in their home finale. The Badgers thought they had the game won but the would-be game winning touchdown was overturned. They were eliminated from Big Ten West contention prior to that game. Wisky's claim to fame this season has been its defense with some of the best numbers in the country. The schedule however (71st SOS) comes up light particularly in the Big Ten where Read more

College Football Betting: WKU-FIU ending draws groans, cheers among bettors

11.24.2015     09:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You probably weren't paying much attention to last weekend's Western Kentucky-Florida International game...unless you had a bet on it. They called the game with 5:03 left on the clock due to weather. According to sportsbook "code of conduct" all games must go at least 55 minutes for action. Western Kentucky was leading 63-7 which means Hilltopper supporters as well as those on the over got shafted. Those on FIU and the under aren't allowed to complain about a "bad beat" until next April.

College Football Gambling: Iowa State and Syracuse fire head coaches

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been hard to keep up with all of the college football midseason firings but two more took place earlier this week. Iowa State's Paul Rhoads was shown the door after posting a record of 32-54 and 16-44 in Big XII play. The Cyclones have a winning spread record (6-4-1) and looked ultra-competitive in closes losses to Oklahoma State and Kansas State the last two weeks. ISU is currently a +13.5 road underdog vs. West Virginia.

Syracuse sent Scott Shafer packing after eight straight losses. The Orange opened the season 3-0 and like Iowa State, having a winning spread record (7-4 ATS) this season. Syracuse closes out the year as a +3 home underdog vs. Boston College.

Note that both Rhoads and Shafer will coach this weekend.
