College Football Handicapping: Iowa State not married to new found up-tempo offense

10.16.2014     07:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Through its first five games, Iowa State averaged a very pedestrian 67 plays per game. Last week against Toledo, they incorperated some up-tempo, ran 87 plays, and scored 37 points in the win. But heading into Sunday's game on the road against Texas, it appears that the Cyclones are going to revert back to a more controlled style of offense.


“It can be a real detriment to your defense if you are not (successful) and coming off the field quite quickly,” Rhoads said.

NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts

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

College Football Betting Preview: New Mexico State Aggies at Idaho Vandals

New Mexico State at Idaho
Saturday, 2 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Idaho -4 O/U 67.5
CRIS Current: Idaho -4 O/U 66.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Idaho -3.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Over

The Idaho Vandals celebrate homecoming as they play host to the New Mexico State Aggies in a Sun Belt clash of bottom dwellers. It’s a unique scenario where the winless Vandals are 4-point favorites but perhaps warranted considering NMSU has allowed 41.8 ppg to FBS competition. But that horrific number isn’t that far removed from the home side which under the same parameters has allowed 39.2 ppg.  Even more alarming is 11 of their 12 combined games vs. FBS came against “mid-major teams.”

With two weak defenses the question now becomes are the offenses good enough to take advantage? I see promise with Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan who in his first season has completed Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling Part 2

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I wrote about the NFL’s origins: a league designed by gamblers for gamblers.  Heck, the games are still played at 1 pm on Sundays here in 2014, just as they were 80 years ago, because the old Blue Laws forced horse tracks to close on Sundays and the league’s original owners wanted to offer bettors a place to gamble after church every week.

This week’ I’ll be leaving the early days behind, picking up the story with the infamous 1958 Championship Game between the Colts and Giants – the game that really put the NFL on the map when it comes to national television exposure (and ratings).

The 1958 championship between the Baltimore Colts and the New York Giants has been called the "Greatest Game in NFL History."  The overtime thriller was nationally televised, and drew enormous ratings with forty million Americans tuning in, spurring the league’s incredible growth over the next decade.

MGM wants to offer on-site sports betting tablets

10.13.2014     11:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
MGM Resorts are looking into offering interactive betting tablets for patrons of their sportsbooks. It needs to approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission but the target date is the start of the 2015 football season.


“As we thought about that and started trying to grab them by the hair and yank them into the casino, we thought we’d go where they’re at. And where they’re at is mobile phones and sports books, lounges, nightclubs,” Mikulich said. “We thought we’d put some of these devices in those areas to try and engage with them and see what they actually like to do.”

NFL Gambling Preview: Chicago Bears at Atlanta Falcons

Chicago at Atlanta
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Atlanta -3 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Atlanta -3 O/U 53.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Atlanta -3.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

Here’s a game that is just as attractive to fantasy football owners as it is to the handicapping/betting community. Obvious big play aerial components on each side but Chicago has better ability to create balance with the running Matt Forte. Offensive line injuries plaguing each of these teams the past couple weeks but Atlanta starting left guard Justin Blalock did return to practice Wednesday in limited participation. His presence would provide a significant boost. The Bears could also receive some much needed help as center Roberto Garza is practicing again after missing the last three games. Left tackle Jermon Bushrod who missed last week remains a concern as his knee/ankle injuries may keep him out again.

This game is crucial Read more

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Arizona Wildcats

USC at Arizona
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
USC -2.5 O/U 63
CRIS Current: USC -2.5 O/U 68
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -3
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Under

The biggest thing I took away from the USC's game against Arizona State was that despite all the preseason talk about playing up-tempo the Trojans are actually looking to slow things down, especially in the second half of games when their defense is gassed due to a lack of depth. They've been suiting up a limited amount of players and the lack of depth was certainly exposed against the Sun Devils.

Defensively, with the exception of the somewhat flukey Boston College game (425 rushing yards allowed) and the two big plays from ASU late in the fourth quarter, USC's defense has been pretty good. They've gotten progressively better against the run holding Oregon State and Arizona State to 89 yards the last two weeks. That bodes Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL has longstanding relationship with gambling

10.06.2014     12:25 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Publicly, the NFL is among the staunchest opponents to legalized gambling in the United States.  Heck, the league famously refused an advertisement from the Las Vegas Visitors and Convention Bureau for the Super Bowl, in an effort to appear like they are really anti-gaming. 

Former commissioner Paul Tagliabue and current commissioner Roger Goodell were instrumental in getting the anti gaming Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act attached to the Port Security Bill in October 2006.  The NFL has taken this stance despite the fact that it’s enormously popularity is, in no small part, due to the prevalence of betting on games.

The hypocrisy of the NFL in regards to betting is almost laughable.  The facts, as you will see, clearly show that the league was founded by gamblers for gamblers.  From the NFL’s first television appearance in 1939 through the current TV deals that pumps nearly six billions dollars per year into the league coffers, the NFL’s popularity rests upon the shoulders of those who wager on the outcome of the games.

Here in the 21st century, the NFL is the most popular and profitable sport in the Read more

NFL Handicapping: Detroit's Johnson questionable vs. Buffalo

10.03.2014     01:44 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors are going to want to be aware of the injury status for Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Johnson (ankle) is currently listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Buffalo. With the line currently hovering around a key number, you can expect the Lions to go off -7 if he plays and -6.5 if he doesn't.


"That possibility always exists," Caldwell said. "Just kind of depends on how one progresses during the course of the week. There are some times that they move forward enough that they won't have any significant setbacks and other times you don't feel that way. You have to wait until the end of the week and react accordingly."
