College Football Betting Preview: Oklahoma Sooners at West Virginia Mountaineers

Oklahoma at West Virginia
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -12.5 O/U 62
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -7.5 O/U 65
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma -14.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Over

We have an interesting Big XII matchup in Morgantown on Saturday night with Oklahoma taking on West Virginia. The Sooners offense has been very hard to stop for any defense this season and the West Virginia suspect stop unit should have its hands full slowing them down. The Mountaineers yielded an alarming 37 points on 447 total yards at a 6.9 yards per play clip against Maryland and escaped with the 40-37 win. That is bad news facing Oklahoma's potent attack led by quarterback Trevor Knight. Knight has gotten off to a very strong start (860 yards passing) after his breakout performance in OU’s Sugar Bowl win over Alabama. The loss of starting running back Keith Ford (6 TDs) likely Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Clemson Tigers at Florida State Seminoles

Clemson at Florida State
Saturday, 5:15 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -19.5 O/U 66
CRIS Current: Florida State -14.5 O/U 60
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -16
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Clemson

Defending champion Florida State, at first glance, would appear to have only a handful of bumps on its path to a likely appearance in this year's four-team college football playoff.

One of those potential detours occurs Saturday when the Seminoles, who have had a pair of lukewarm performances in their first two games, host ACC rival Clemson at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Florida State was a 19.5-point favorite at mid-week before the school suspended Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Jameis Winston for the first half of Saturday's contest due to a vulgar outburst at a campus building in which he was apparently imitating a popular internet meme.

It was the latest Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks

Denver at Seattle
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Seattle -4.5 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Seattle -4.5 O/U 48.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Seattle -6
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Over

We all remember what happened when these two teams met in the Super Bowl; a game that was arguably decided on the very first play from scrimmage – a bad snap safety for the Broncos.  And we all know how strong the Seahawks home field has been in recent years.  Seattle’s 20 point win over Green Bay in their opener was just the tip of the iceberg.   They’ve beaten plenty of other elite teams on this field over the last few years, including wins by 26 and 29 points over San Francisco, by 27 over New Orleans, and by 58 over Arizona as part of their truly impressive 13-4 ATS run in the regular season on this field since the start of the 2012 campaign.

The question here is ‘What’s Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Idaho Vandals at Ohio Bobcats

09.18.2014     09:42 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Idaho at Ohio
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Ohio -13 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Ohio -14 O/U 55.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio -14
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Idaho

The Ohio Bobcats will host the Idaho Vandals in their home opener on Saturday night. Idaho, led by a freshman quarterback, will travel over 2,000 miles to Athens, Ohio. The Vandals have lost 32 of their last 38 football games and they take on a Bobcats squad who has made five straight bowl appearances. Just glancing at this non-conference matchup you would most likely think it’s a mismatch, however as we uncover more about each of these teams you may be surprised.

Frank Solich is in his tenth year as the Bobcats head coach. The Ohio native took over a program which only had two winning seasons in the last twenty-two years. He has led the Bobcats to five straight bowl games and has retained his offensive and defensive Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: North Carolina Tar Heels at East Carolina Pirates

North Carolina at East Carolina
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
East Carolina -1 O/U 64
CRIS Current: East Carolina -2.5 O/U 66.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: East Carolina -0.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Under

Multiple situational angles favor of North Carolina as it heads to East Carolina: Revenge from last year’s 55-31 home embarrassment, an extra week to prepare, and ECU in a potential letdown spot after last week’s road upset (+9.5) of Virginia Tech. Put it all together and it should warrant a play on the Tar Heels. However, on field results through the first three weeks combined with strength of schedule clearly point in the direction of the 2-1 Pirates who are off back-back strong performances vs. top 25 teams.    

Entering this one off of a bye week would seemingly give North Carolina enough time to fix its early season problems Read more

College Football Betting Preveiw: Indiana Hoosiers at Missouri Tigers

Indiana at Missouri
Saturday, 3 pm PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -15 O/U 72
CRIS Current: Missouri -13.5 O/U 73.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Missouri -16.5
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Indiana

Leery that Missouri wouldn't come close to matching last year's magical season, bettors came into the season looking to fade the Tigers. They got bit in Week 2 as Mizzou blew out Toledo on the road and then last week racked up a commanding 38-10 win over a solid UCF squad. The Tigers have been a bit fortunate with a +6 turnover margin and two non-offensive touchdowns through three games, but based on what I've seen, the predicted drop-off may not be nearly as dramatic.

Despite 582 total yards and 235 yards on the ground, Indiana still isn't ready for the role of a favorite as the Hoosiers lost at Bowling Green, 45-42, last week. Things haven't changed much in Bloomington with the Hoosiers more than Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Alabama Crimson Tide

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Florida at Alabama
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -15.5 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -14.5 O/U 51.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -18
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Alabama

Alabama and Florida hook up for the first time since 2011 when the Crimson Tide waltzed into Gainesville and came away with a dominating 38-10 victory. Alabama was tested in Week 1 vs. West Virginia but is rested and ready after back-to-back blowout wins. Florida meanwhile got all it could handle against an improved Kentucky squad, needing overtime to escape with a 36-30 win.

This issue for Florida in this game is what approach to take offensively. They want to play fast, they want to spread things out, they want to hit on big plays. But with a suspect offensive line on the road against a top-tier defense you're faced with the likelihood of a lot of quick three-and-outs and more possessions for Read more

College Football Betting: Have bettors overreacted on California and West Virginia?

09.17.2014     07:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Every college football season there are a handful of teams that take massive jumps in the eyes of bettors after tepid preseason expectations and solid play the first few weeks of the regular season. Two teams that comes to mind are West Virginia and California. The Mountaineers were lined in the neighborhood of 4.5 over/under wins and looked to be headed in the wrong direction under Dana Holgorsen. They instead opened the season with a competitive showing and pointspread cover against Alabama (33-23). Against Towson, WVU was laying -24.5 and rolled to a 54-0 win. And then last week, catching +3.5/+3 on the road, beat Maryland 40-37. This week, West Virginia plays host to Oklahoma. The Golden Nugget originally lined the Sooners as 17-point chalk. On Sunday, CRIS opened the game -12.5 and it has since been bet down to as low as -7. Rob Veno's Power Rating makes and adjustment towards WVU but not nearly as much with Oklahoma -14.5.

Similar situation with Cal who opened the year with an outright win at Northwestern. They followed it up with a 55-14 win over Sacramento State as 27-point chalk. There was no Golden Nugget GOY line on this week's matchup at Arizona but based on Read more
