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

10.22.2014     08:24 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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 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: Baylor Bears at West Virginia Mountaineers

Baylor at West Virginia
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -9.5 O/U 78
CRIS Current: Baylor -8 O/U 80
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baylor -10.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: West Virginia

If Baylor ultimately gains a spot in this season's inaugural College Football Playoff, it will certainly look back on the second Saturday in October as one of its narrow escapes en route to the Final Four.

The fourth-ranked Bears (6-0 on the season) trailed TCU, 58-37, at home last weekend with just 11 minutes remaining before reeling off the game's final 24 points to escape, 61-58, on Chris Callahan's 28-yard field goal as time expired.

The combined 119 points scored by the teams represented the highest scoring game between Top 10 teams in college football history.

After being held mostly in check by Texas' defense the previous week, the Bears erupted for 782 yards and 39 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

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

College Football Betting Preview: Missouri Tigers at Florida Gators

Missouri at Florida
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Florida -4 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: Florida -6 O/U 49.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida -1.5
OTTO Sports’ Recommendation: Missouri

We're halfway through the college football season and the beauty of the betting markets is the increased amount of varying opinions. Some bettors go on feel and what they see whereas others plug in a power rating and mechanically play what spits out. Either way it creates situations where value is created not because of oddsmakers but because of line moves. The Florida-Missouri game is a good example. The Tigers opened a respectable +4 but are now as high as +6. That may not seem like a significant move but considering three of the Gators' four SEC games were decided by a field goal, a point, and overtime, it could very easily be the difference between an ATS win or loss.

Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -8.5 O/U 76.5
CRIS Current: UCLA -7 O/U 74.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UCLA -8.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: California

I pointed out on the podcast Tuesday that through six games UCLA has had one impressive showing: a 62-27 win at Arizona State. Now it should be pointed out that Virginia and Memphis are much improved and quarterback Brett Hundley went down early in the Texas game. But my concern is more centered on the last two weeks: a home loss as 13-point favorites to Utah and a no-show in last week's blowout loss to Oregon. Add it all up and we're talking about a 1-5 ATS record and a classic case of an overrated football team.

The brings us to this weekend's pointspread. Last week, Cal opened as a pick 'em and was bet up as high as -4.5 (closed -3.5) vs. Washington (who was coming in off a bye). This week, Cal Read more
