College Football Betting: Notre Dame to use two quarterbacks vs. LSU

12.17.2014     06:55 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Notre Dame plans on using two quarterbacks for its Music City Bowl matchup vs. LSU. Everett Golson has obviously had issues with turnovers while Malik Zaire showed flashes of competence in the team's blowout loss to USC. Note that Golson is right-handed while Zaire is left-handed something that could impact the passing game.

“Both have skill sets that are a little bit different that we’ll use in the game,” Kelly said. “We’ll go with their strengths and call upon those strengths in the game. I feel very confident I can manage both of them.”

College Football Gambling: No reason to expect better defense from North Carolina

12.17.2014     06:39 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Not a shock to see North Carolina part ways with defensive coordinator Vic Koenning. The Tar Heels were one of the nation's worst defenses and in reading about Koenning's departure, it is easy to see why. Players saying there was "energy" in only one game this season vs. rival Duke. Talk about a lack of work ethic. Different defensive units not in the same meeting. A total mess and not something that is going to be cured prior to a post-Christmas Day bowl game in Detroit. Their opponent, Rutgers doesn't have impressive seasonal numbers but hung 40+ against the similarly soft defenses of Washington State, Indiana, and Maryland.

“We just didn't get up when we needed to get up for the games,” Scott said. “The only game I can honestly say we got riled up for was Duke. And I guess we were playing for the

College Football Handicapping: Liberty Bowl expects to be up-tempo

12.16.2014     10:42 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Not a surprise but Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin is expecting their Liberty Bowl matchup vs. West Virginia to feature "lots of plays." The total opened 64 and has since been bet up to 67.

“Both teams need to get to bed early because there’s going to be a lot of plays in this game,” Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said, noting their no-huddle, up-tempo styles.

College Football Betting Alert: Markets fade Spurrier, Gamecocks

12.11.2014     08:41 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
It's not too often you see anti-SEC money during the bowl season. Maybe and half point here or there if bettors sense conference affiliation inflation but for the most part the SEC is regarded as "bet on" in December and January. That however hasn't been the case for the Independence Bowl with Miami taking all of the early money for its matchup vs. South Carolina. The game opened pick 'em with the Hurricanes now -3 at most offshore sportsbooks (-3.5ev at CRIS). After losing three straight bowl games from 2008-10, the Gamecocks have won three straight. Likely some concerns though as to how much prep and effort will come from the SC side after very high preseason expectations and a dismal 6-6 (3-5 SEC) showing. That at Spurrier playing 36 holes a day.

College Football Handicapping: Arkansas seeks better run game vs. Texas

12.11.2014     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Arkansas is hoping the time off leading up to its Texas Bowl matchup vs. Texas will result in more success running the football. After racking up over 700 yards against Texas Tech and Texas A&M, the Razorbacks averaged only 131 ypg (3.12 ypc) their last six SEC contests. Texas' rushing defense allowed 3.9 ypc on the season.

"We need to get back to the basics of what we do," Cook said. "That's being physical, pounding the rock. That's soothing we can do and something we like to do and something we will focus on and get after it."

College Football Betting: San Diego State well versed in facing option offenses

12.11.2014     08:13 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
San Diego State's prep for its Poinsettia Bowl matchup vs. Navy shouldn't be all too difficult considering the Aztecs have faced at least two option teams each of the last four seasons. SDSU won all eight games straight up and covered six times. Statistically, they've held up pretty strong holding both Air Force and New Mexico in check in both meetings during the regular season.

2014 (Rush defense)
vs. Air Force: 30-14 SU/ATS Win (140 yards, 3.41 ypc)
at New Mexico: 24-14 SU/ATS Win (150 yards, 4.0 ypc)

at Air Force: 27-20 SU/ATS Win (169 yards, 3.45 ypc)
vs. New Mexico: 35-30 SU Win/ATS Loss (253 yards, 6.17 ypc)

vs. Air Force: 28-9 SU/ATS Win (320 yards, 4.71 ypc)
vs. Army: 42-7 SU/ATS Win (282 yards, 4.55 ypc)

at Air Force: 41-27 SU/ATS Win (195 yards, 4.15 ypc)
at Army: 23-20 SU Win/ATS Loss (403 yards, 5.23 ypc)

College Football Gambling: Nebraska preps for Holiday Bowl in wake of Pelini's departure

12.11.2014     07:44 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Nebraska is one of many teams heading into its bowl game with an interim head coach at the helm. Bo Pelini was recently fired and replaced by former Oregon State head coach Mike Riley. Assistant Barney Cotton will coach the team's Holiday Bowl matchup vs. USC (Dec. 27). The Cornhuskers are of course saying all the right things despite being fairly bitter over Pelini's dismissal. It is also uncertain whether any of the current staff will be retained.

“I really have a very simple job,” Cotton said. “That’s to help our players finish out the best way and help this coaching staff stay cohesive and united and keep loving each other.”

“They definitely want us to finish right,” Mitchell said. “We’re a competitive bunch and that’s one thing we preach. For us to have one more game, especially against an opponent we’re going to play, who wouldn’t want that? It’s not a huge BCS bowl game, but the opponent is a big name

College Basketball Betting Free Play: NC Central Eagles at Maryland Terrapins

12.10.2014     10:21 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
NC Central +11 at Maryland O/U 122
Recommendation: NC Central

Preseason projection of Maryland being a “bet on” team has taken a bit of a back seat right now due to key injuries. I felt that the Terp’s blend of solid trio of veterans combined with incoming class of potential stars (especially PG Melo Trimble) could be molded into a profitable side by Mark Turgeon. Trimble has been as advertised thus far leading Maryland in scoring (16.4 ppg), minutes played (31.0 mpg), free throw percentage (88.6%), and assists (2.9 apg). The support staff is still formidable with Jake Layman (15.2 ppg) and Richaud Pack (team’s 4th leading scorer) but losing centerpiece Dez Wells for the next four weeks and having starting forward Evan Smotrycz still out is concerning. With four freshman now in the seven man rotation, have to expect some uneven performances this early as they get acclimated. Figure tonight to be one of those spots as veteran NC Central group comes into the Comcast Center in game with great measuring stick significance to them. NCC has a trio of pesky backcourt veterans who defensive can give Trimble difficulty over 40 minutes. Read more
