College Footbal Betting Preview: Ohio State Buckeyes at Penn State Nittany Lions

Ohio State at Penn State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -13 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Ohio State -14 O/U 51.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio State -11.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Over

Penn State comes in off of back-to-back losses and a bye week as it plays host to red-hot Ohio State. Behind a young offensive line, the Nittany Lions have struggled mightily to move the football with just 32 points scored in three games vs. mediocre power conference competition.

Penn State wants to run the football and says it won't quit trying to do so but through six games, the Nittany Lions are averaging only 2.84 ypc. You could argue that stubbornness cost them the game against Michigan. The Wolverines allowed 402 passing yards to Rutgers and Gary Nova the previous week. PSU meanwhile decided to run right into the teeth of Michigan's fourth-ranked rush defense and it obviously Read more

College Football Betting: Penn State refuses to abandon poor run game

Ohio State -14 at Penn State O/U 51.5

Despite averaging only 2.84 ypc as a team, Penn State says it won't give up on the run game.


"We worked on it [balancing the offense] really hard all last week, and we're going to do that again this week, and that's not going to change," Franklin said. "We're going to stay positive.

"We're going to stick to that, stick to the running game and keep committing to that, finding creative ways to help our guys and put them in position to be successful."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFC News and Notes

Atlanta Falcons
Since blowing out Tampa Bay on national TV in Week 3, the Atlanta Falcons have looked nothing short of awful.  A team that made it to the NFC Championship Game two years ago is now entrenched in a four game skid; picking up right where they left off last year when they went 4-12 and ranked among the most disappointing teams in football.

All four losses during this SU and ATS skid have come by double digit margins.  The Falcons certainly aren’t going to win many defensive struggles – their stop unit has allowed 24+ six times in seven ballgames this year, a mediocre defense on a good day.  But many pundits thought the Falcons would be good enough to trade points with most of their foes.  That simply hasn’t been the case, in large part, due to cluster injuries on the offensive line, with backup center Peter Konz the latest to go down.

Matt Ryan was sacked five times and hit nine times in Atlanta’s loss to Baltimore on Sunday, while throwing for a season low in yards. "When you go out there and get beat soundly, I think everybody knows we've got to play better across the board. Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Florida State Seminoles

Notre Dame at Florida State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -12.5
CRIS Current: No Line
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -12.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Notre Dame

We have no line posted as of yet for Saturday’s showdown between Notre Dame and Florida State due to the status of Jameis Winston. Winston, who has already been in his share of off the field distractions, is now being investigating whether he accepted payment for signing memorabilia. Winston claims he wasn’t paid. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher maintains that he believes his quarterback. Either way, Winston is “expected” to play but no confirmation has been made as of this writing.

Notre Dame has not had many problems moving the football this season, with the Irish averaging 444.3 yards per game. Everett Golson is completing 62.5% of his passes, for 1,683 yards and 16 TDs to Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Texas A&M Aggies at Alabama Crimson Tide

Texas A&M at Alabama
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -12.5 O/U 58.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -13.5 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -6
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Texas A&M

This matchup consists of two teams that are being widely hailed as major disappointments by the media and even their own fans. Texas A&M has dropped its last two games and needed overtime to edge Arkansas three games back. Alabama has just one loss (vs. Ole Miss) but was very lucky to win last week at Arkansas thanks to a missed PAT by the Razorbacks.

So what is the reality of these teams? To me Texas A&M is about what I expected them to be. Not quite as good offensively as they were in the Johnny Football years, but still pretty good. Any Kevin Sumlin offense is going to move the ball and light up the scoreboard. They just happened to face the top two teams in the country Read more

College Football Betting Alert: Indiana down to third string quarterback

10.15.2014     02:55 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Well, this isn't good. Following the loss of Nate Sudfeld to a season-ending injury, Indiana's best case scenario at quarterback was true freshman Chris Covington who was originally slated to play linebacker. And head coach Kevin Wilson said Covington was, "hands down the team's best option." News however just broke that Covington won't play this weekend vs. Michigan State. Why he won't play isn't known outside of his mother saying so (huh?). Next in line is fellow freshman Zander Diamont. Line headed Sparty's way as we speak.

College Football Gambling: Rutgers isn't happy about how big of underdogs it is to Ohio State

10.15.2014     01:35 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We've said this before; college football players and coaches know the pointspreads of their games. Here we have 5-1 Rutgers who is apparently pretty pissed about the +19.5 they're catching at Ohio State this weekend.


The lopsided line caught the attention of junior captain Darius Hamilton, who simply tweeted "19.5 underdogs...remember that...#choposu" on Monday night.

“It shows how disrespectful it is, but then again, we come in, we strap on the helmet and everybody bleeds just like how we bleed," Carroo said. "Everybody is the same. We just have to go out there and play, listen to coaching and go out there and know that we’re playing for each other and everything will take care of itself out there on the field.”

Cincinnati at Indianapolis
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Indianapolis -3 O/U 49
CRIS Current: Indianapolis -3 O/U 49.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Indianapolis
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Indianapolis

The Bengals went into their bye week at 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS, in large part because their defense dominated all three of those early season contests (wins over the Ravens, Titans and Falcons).  But in two games since their bye week, Marvin Lewis’s defense has been positively torched, allowing 80 points and 936 yards to the Patriots and Panthers.   The season long stats still show the Bengals with a top 10 defense on a yards-per-play basis, allowing 5.3 yards per opposing snap.  But those numbers were elite two weeks ago; not anywhere near elite today.  That being said, Cinci still ranks #2 in the NFL in yards per play differential; in large part due to the big play ability from Read more
