Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: How to bet college football bowl games

12.09.2013     08:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
During football season, I usually write about the NFL every week.  But it wasn’t easy to make broad generalizations about teams on a Sunday in which more than half the games were significantly affected by snowy or frigid weather.  And the college football bowl pairings were announced on Sunday Night.  So, I made the executive decision to take a one week break from the NFL this week to discuss my personal strategies for winning during bowl season.

Motivation is the key factor for any bowl game.  Overall talent and team speed don’t mean a thing when the players don’t give a hoot about being there.  That’s why underdogs tend to do fairly well against the spread in the earlier bowl games.  It’s not a reward for a favorite to end up in front of a sparse crowd in Boise or Detroit facing a team they’re not particularly excited about playing, especially if their second tier bowl bid came as a result of a relatively disappointing campaign.

Always check the local newspapers, blogs and yes, even twitter feeds for clues about any team’s level of preparation and Read more

College Football Championship First and Second Half Betting Numbers

12.07.2013     08:51 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In last night’s Mid-American Championship Game, Bowling Green continued its torrid 2013 run cashing as a second half “under” play for the 11th time in 13 games.  Always looking for hidden gems, here’s a look at the season’s results for each team involved in Saturday’s Conference Championship Games.

Conference USA - Marshall at Rice
1st Half ATS – Marshall 8-4-0 / Rice 9-3-0
1st Half Total – Marshall 5-6-0 / Rice 4-6-2 (Note: The Marshall-Gardner Webb game did not have a 1H total but had a 2H) 

Notes: Marshall is currently on a 5-0 1H ats streak defeating opponents by 14 or more in all five games. Rice is also a red-hot 1H play going 7-1 ats in their last eight games winning all seven of those contests by double digits.

2nd Half ATS – Marshall 6-6-0 / Rice 5-7-0
2nd Half Total – Marshall 7-5-0 / Rice 2-10-0

Notes: Of Marshall’s six road games this season, five of them resulted in 34 or more 2H points and a 5-1 “over” mark. Rice started the season playing nine consecutive 2H “unders” before going Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Arizona State's Carson probable but far from healthy

12.06.2013     08:13 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arizona State -3.5 at DePaul

According to Sports Options, Arizona State's Jahii Carson (ankle) is probable for tonight's game at DePaul. However, it doesn't sound as if he'll be even close to 100 percent. Carson was hobbled (8 points, 2-of-14 FGs) in ASU's 60-57 loss to Miami last Sunday and has been severely limited in practice. After DePaul, the Sun Devils don't play again until next Saturday – a situation that leaves the door open for Carson potentially sitting out this evening.


“I definitely live off my speed and my explosiveness,” Carson said. “I’m a two-foot jumper, so not having the explosion off both feet definitely limited me offensively and defensively. Shots that I’d normally make I couldn’t quite hit, plays defensively on the ball that I’d normally make I couldn’t quite get.”

College Football Betting Preview: Oklahoma Sooners at Oklahoma State Cowboys

Oklahoma at Oklahoma State
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma State -10.5 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Oklahoma State -10 O/U 56.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma State -8.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Oklahoma

Weather will likely play a role here as frigid conditions are expected (15 degrees at kickoff) for this 11 am local start on Saturday morning. Oklahoma State has plenty of incentive here as the Big XII title along with the affiliated BCS berth into the Fiesta Bowl are theirs if they win. Oklahoma meanwhile cannot win the Big XII and they appear virtually locked into the December 30th Alamo Bowl. With no opportunity to upgrade their status, the Sooners will be playing strictly for pride in this edition of “Bedlam” and their intensity level has already shown to be extremely high this week. Senior center Gabe Ikard refused to recognize his team as playing the spoiler Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers

Miami at Pittsburgh
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Pittsburgh -3.45 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Pittsburgh -3 O/U 40.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Pittsburgh -4
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

Both the Steelers and the Dolphins are fundamentally flawed football teams, yet both remain very ‘live’ in the AFC Playoff picture.  The 6-6 Dolphins are currently tied with Baltimore for the #6 seed in the AFC, while the Steelers rank just one game behind with four left to play.  That being said, neither team can like their chances if they lose this week.  We should expect a maximum intensity playoff-level showdown as a result.

The Steelers chances took a real blow last week with their loss at Baltimore, unable to convert the game tying two point try at the end of regulation.  But that defeat didn’t end their season, not by any stretch of the imagination.  QB Ben Read more

NFL Handicapping: Drive Point Averages Week 14

12.05.2013     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Here are per-game Drive Point averages on offense and defense for all 32 teams…arranged in schedule rotation order. If you’re new to the website, Drive Points are only those scored on drives of 60 yards or more. Special teams and defensive scoring isn’t counted, nor are “cheap” points scored off field position. The goal is to get a clean a read as possible on “pure” offense and defense in terms of driving the field for points, and preventing the opposition from doing so.

Strength of schedule rankings from Sagarin at USA Today and Football Outsiders are in the first parenthesis (in that order) to provide some extra context for you, followed by this season’s turnover differential in the second parenthesis…

Thursday

Houston: 10.8 on offense, 13.5 on defense (6-15) (-12 turnovers)

Jacksonville: 6.2 on offense, 16.7 on defense (2-10) (-4 turnovers)

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Boston College Eagles at Purdue Boilermakers

Boston College +4 at Purdue O/U 151.5
Recommendation: Boston College


Purdue hasn't done much of anything this year to be deserving of this price range for tonight's game against Boston College. The Boilermakers struggled against the likes of Northern Kentucky, Rider, Siena (twice), and also lost outright by 15 points to a bottom-tier Washington State squad. Head coach Matt Painter on his team's struggles: “I’ve never, as an assistant or a head coach, been with a team that can show such promise in one half and the other half lose their focus or not make winning basketball plays, not tough it out on a certain possession,” to this extent, Painter said. “It’s a hard thing, and it’s a positive that you show that you can be successful, but it’s also a negative in terms of when things don’t go your way, you’re not able to right the ship. You have to show more consistency.”

The reason for the inconsistency as well as last year's sub .500 finish is easy to pinpoint – Painter just doesn't have the talent he's accustoming to working with in West Lafayette.

Hope everyone had a great holiday. Let’s run the numbers from the three NFL games plus Texas Tech/Texas…

Detroit (-6.5) 40, Green Bay 10

G. Bay: 126 yards, 3.0 per-play, 3 turnovers, 20% third downs

Detroit: 561 yards, 7.1 per-play, 4 turnovers, 75% third downs

Other Numbers

Rushing Yards: Green Bay 24, Detroit 241

Passing Stats: Green Bay 10-20-1-102, Detroit 22-35-2-320

Drive Points: Green Bay 0, Detroit 24

Stat Score: Green Bay 7, Detroit 36

Sloppiness: Green Bay 25, Detroit 33

(Apparently it’s impossible to play well on a Thursday morning when you had to go overtime against a divisional rival the prior Sunday afternoon. Green Bay’s stats here are so bad that it boggles the mind. Their only TD came on a fumble return by the defense---Detroit is still a sloppiness machine even in blowout victories! You don’t see numbers like this in the NFL Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines

Ohio State at Michigan
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -14 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Ohio State -14.5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio State -14
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Ohio State

To say that the Buckeyes have a special chip on their shoulder this week is something of an understatement.  That’s very bad news for the Wolverines, especially when we consider Michigan’s significant offensive decline as the season has progressed.

The last time Ohio State visited the Big House, Michigan hung 40 on the Buckeyes in a win that snapped a seven game skid for the Wolverines.  Ohio State got right back on track last year, with a win and cover against Michigan in Columbus.  This series is still called a rivalry but it really hasn’t been much of a rivalry since Lloyd Carr left town.

Ohio State won’t take prisoners in this Read more
