College Football Betting Preview: Texas Longhorns at Iowa State Cyclones

Texas at Iowa State
Saturday, 4 pm PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
Texas -8 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Texas -6.5 O/U 53
Recommendation: Under

All four of Texas' Big XII games have gone under the total, and three of the four weren't even close as the market has had a tough time adjusting. The Longhorns have run the ball more than any team in league play (51 times per game) and attempted the fewest passes (18.3 times per game). There's no reason to think they'll change that mentality off of back-to-back wins and facing a team in Iowa State the has difficulty stopping the run.

A lot of change for Iowa State heading into this game as offensive coordinator Mark Mangino was let go and sophomore quarterback Joel Lanning will get the start. Lanning took over for senior Sam Richardson in last week's loss to Baylor. His stats look good (12-of-17, 144 yards, 3 TDs) though the Cyclones were trailing 35-0 midway through the second quarter. The change is clearly a last ditch effort to turn things around for head coach Paul Rhoads who is obviously on the hot seat. Given the short turnaround, I'm not expecting it to have Read more

College Football Gambling: Iowa State fires offensive coordinator Mark Mangino

10.27.2015     08:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Man, another offensive coordinator bites the dust. This time it's Iowa State's loveable Mark Mangino who reportedly wasn't getting along with head coach Paul Rhoads. The Cyclones actually rank a respectable 5th in the Big XII in total offense (464.4 ypg) in league play. Assistant Todd Sturdy will take over and sophomore Joe Lanning will get the nod at quarterback. ISU is currently a +6.5 home underdog to Texas for Saturday.


"Mark and I couldn't get on the same page on a few important items," Rhoads said. "We tried to talk that through again this morning to get us moving in a different direction. In the end, Mark was not interested in that."

College Football Gambling: Miami parts ways with head coach Al Golden

10.26.2015     07:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Did we mention it's a bad time to be the head coach of a losing football team? Particularly in the state of Florida? Miami decided enough was enough and sent Al Golden packing after last week's embarrassing 58-0 loss to Clemson. Tight ends coach Larry Scott will serve as interim head coach. To make matters worse, quarterback Brad Kaaya (concussion) and leading receiver Rashawn Scott (shoulder) are questionable for Saturday's game at Duke.


"However, we have a proud tradition of excellence at Miami, not just in football but in all sports, and we want to compete for ACC and national championships. I simply believe that now is the time to bring the Hurricane Family together and rally behind our young men."

College Football Betting: UCF's George O'Leary steps down

10.26.2015     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's a bad time to be the head coach of a losing football team. UCF head coach George O'Leary resigned over the weekend following the team's 0-8 start. What's intriguing is the university decided to pay offensive coordinator Brent Key $700K to not take over. Key was considered by some to be the coach-in-waiting but UCF was obviously not willing to commit. Instead quarterbacks coach Danny Barrett will serve as the interim for the remainder of the season. The Knights are currently +24 underdogs at Cincinnati for Saturday.


“2014 was a rewarding season which culminated in our second consecutive AAC championship and third conference championship in five seasons. 2015, however, has been a disappointment to me and many despite the hard work of our coaches and players," O'Leary said in the statement. "Many of the players are young but gaining valuable playing experience due to injuries and graduation. I am sure this will benefit them next season.

“In an effort to allow UCF to accelerate its search for my

NFL Gambling Preview: New York Jets at New England Patriots

NY Jets at New England
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
New England -9.5 O/U 49
CRIS Current: New England -7.6 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: New York

The Patriots remarkable pointspread success has forced the betting markets to adjust.  Even after getting backdoored with a late TD by the Colts last week; costing New England backers their wagers, the Pats still remain the single most public team in the NFL – the defending Super Bowl champ that’s come out of the gate looking every bit as potent here in 2015.  That has left sportsbooks no choice but to bump up the number to support New England week after week; a point or two of Patriots' tax that leaves at least a little bit of added value on the opposing side every week.

But before we anoint the Patriots as repeat champions, let’s note that they’ve only beaten one team with a winning record all year – the Steelers; on opening day, when Pittsburgh was missing several key pieces of their top flight skill position talent.  The Pats failed to cover the spread in that game as well, and they were outgained by Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Toledo Rockets at UMass Minutemen

Toledo at UMass
Saturday, 12 pm PT – ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Toledo -13 O/U 57
CRIS Current: Toledo -14.5 O/U 62.5
Recommendation: Toledo

The Toledo Rockets and the UMass Minutemen square off in a cross division MAC showdown on Saturday afternoon in Gillette Stadium. The nationally ranked and ATS perfect Rockets put their undefeated record on the line and they do so as over two touchdown road favorites. UMass on the other hand has had a tough go of it this season posting a 1-5 record including an embarrassing loss to Kent State last week.

Umass had one of the top offenses in the MAC last year at over 30 ppg but before Blake Frohnapfel was lost for the final two games with a broken leg, that average was a league-best 36 ppg. The offense had shown some impressive sparks during out-of-conference play, but against the MAC it had finally started to turn into wins. Fast forwarding to this year, the offense has for the most part been disappointing (22.7 ppg) with Frohnapfel losing his accuracy (three games below 53%) behind a shaky offensive line, highlighted by only scoring one touchdown last week Read more
