Las Vegas sportsbooks say tonight's college football championship has received a ton of betting volume.


"It's as big as any college football game that I can remember," Bogdanovich, a 28-year Vegas veteran, said of the handle.

"It'll be easily as big as one of these games we've got going on today," MGM vice president of race and sports Jay Rood said, referring to Sunday's NFL playoff games. "We'll be into the seven figures (on Ohio State-Oregon)."

College Football Gambling: Title game total remains as high as 75.5

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at the last seven college football title games and they results from a totals perspective. No real trends worth betting in to but we did want to point out that in the three instances there was a "high total" (67, 69, and 73.5) all three contests went under. The most notable was 2011's Auburn-Oregon game that closed 73.5. The Ducks were the top scoring team in the country (47 ppg) and the Tigers not too far behind (41.2 ppg) very similar to this year's matchup (Oregon 47.2 ppg; Ohio State 45.0 ppg). The game featured 158 plays and nearly 1,000 yards but started slow, bogged down again in the second half, and also featured four turnovers. Is that meaningful to this year's contest? Probably not. But at 75.5 we may see the total bet under some as we near game day with some bettors taking a "they'll need a clean game to beat me" mentality.

2014 - Florida State 34, Auburn 31
Total: 67
Result: Under

2013 - Alabama 42, Notre Dame 14
Total: 39.5
Result: Over

2012 - Alabama 21, LSU 0
Total: 41

College Football Gambling Update: Ohio State taking mid-week title game money

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Still a few days out from college football's title game between Ohio State and Oregon. In reaction to both semifinal matchups going over the total, we've seen more upward pressure with the current number at 75/75.5 after opening 72.5 at Pinnacle and 74 at CRIS. And after sitting on the Ducks -7 for a few days we've seen a slow but steady flow of Buckeyes money with the line down to -6 offshore and -6.5 in Las Vegas. Sportsmemo handicapper Rob Veno has his power rating set at -7.5.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: College Football Bowl Game Bad Beats

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Without a college football playoff this year, we probably would have seen the two losers of the semi-final games (Florida State and Alabama) face off for the national title, instead of the Oregon-Ohio State matchup that we are actually going to see next Monday.  But while the talking heads on TV fixate on the upcoming marquee matchup, there is room for the savvy ‘capper to look back on what just happened over the past three weeks of bowl action in an effort to draw lessons that will help in the future.

Throughout the last few weeks, there were some bad beats that rivaled the toughest beats that we’ve seen in college football all year.  Three stand out in particular; Houston’s late rally to beat Pitt, Michigan State’s late rally to beat Baylor and Central Michigan’s late rally to cover against Western Kentucky. 

Of the three, the Michigan State comeback in the Cotton Bowl was the most likely to occur, despite the Spartans clear deficiencies in the ballgame.  Mark Dantonio’s squad allowed 603 passing yards, but they got the stops they needed during crunch time.  Baylor missed a 46 yard field goal at the Read more

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

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.

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 Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Auburn Tigers

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
