San Francisco -3 at Arizona O/U 42

Arizona announced that Drew Stanton will start again in place of Carson Palmer (shoulder) as the Cardinals play host to San Francisco. Stanton was 14-of-29 for 167 yards in last week's win at New York. The 49ers opened and remain 3-point road favorites.

College Football Betting: It doesn't get any uglier than UConn vs. South Florida

We're having trouble remembering a worse single-event college football game than tonight's UConn vs. South Florida matchup - and that includes those late season, early week MAC and Sun Belt affairs. In theory, someone has to be favored and the Bulls, at home, are the default chalk. But there aren't many teams with a worse track record as a favorite. Since its spreading covering win over Syracuse in November of 2011, USF is on a horrific 3-7 SU, 0-9-1 ATS slide as chalk. Two of those wins came against FBC competition. The lone FCS win, of course, came against UConn. Godspeed, bettors.

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

NFL Gambling News: Eagles cover vs. Colts cost bettor $100K

09.17.2014     07:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Our first big football parlay near-miss of the season! A bettor from Delaware spent $5 on a 15-team parlay (against the spread!) and had the Colts over the Eagles on Monday Night Football. Had the Colts covered, he would have taken home $100K. Damn you, Chip Kelly.


"Honestly, we were rooting for the guy, starting with Sunday night's game," Delaware Lottery director Vernon Kirk said. "Our risk manager told us Sunday night that only one person had hit 14 games and needed the Bears and Colts.

"It definitely looked like Delaware had a winner when the Colts were up 14 midway through the third quarter," Kirk added. "Then to have the Eagles rally like that -- and to win in the last three seconds of the game -- it was agonizing to watch when you knew one player was so close to such a big payout."

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

09.17.2014     07:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com 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

NFL Gambling: Bettors to upgrade Washington with Cousins under center?

Washington at Philadelphia -6.5 O/U 50

With Robert Griffin (knee) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, the Washington Redskins are expected to start Kirk Cousins. And if you read some of the reports coming out of Washington you get the sense that Griffin's injury may be a positive. Cousins appears to be far more comfortable in head coach Jay Gruden's West Coast offense. Yes, it came against Jacksonville, but in relief duty Cousins completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and a QBR of 93.7. The last time Griffin had a QBR of better than 93.7 was Week 6 of the 2012 season.


"I feel like we can win any game with Kirk Cousins," Gruden said after Sunday's win over the Jags. "Kirk is a special guy. He started four games last year and didn't have great success, but obviously has a skill

College Football Gambling: Market reacts to Wake Forest's shortcomings

Army -2.5 at Wake Forest

A little insight into the big market towards Army as it travels to take on Wake Forest. For starters, Wake essentially lost of a day of prepping for the Wishbone with having to travel back from Utah State. Second is their issues along the offensive line which resulted in six sacks and -25 yards rushing vs. the Aggies. Lastly, first-year head coach Dave Clawson admitted to playing defensive players that clearly aren't ready to play but need to experience.


“Where it really creates the problem is on the way back, because the team doesn’t get back until Sunday morning at 7 o’clock,’’ Clawson said. “So it really creates a lot more problem for the Army prep.

“I mean, when you play these games you prefer to have a long

NFL Betting News: New Orleans' defense looks shaky

09.16.2014     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two years ago, New Orleans was the only team in the NFL to allow over 400 ypg. Following the hire of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, they went from last to second (301.3 ypg) in 2013. Through two weeks, however, the Saints' stop-unit has look more like the 2012 version with 446.0 ypg allowed and an 0-2 start.


"Every two-minute situation we've had this year, we've blown," Ryan said, pointing to the end of both halves in Week 1 at Atlanta and the final drive in Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns. "We want to be a great defense, and great defenses always finish. And that's something you just have to point the finger at us, and we have to get corrected."

"We've limited our checks, and we still busted some things. So we can't have that. And that's not our style of play," Ryan said. "Right now, we need to develop our style of play and prove who we are. Right now we're not very good.

"We're gonna be great, we're gonna work at it. We've got the players, I know we've got the

NFL Handicapping: Kansas City Chiefs suffer from injury regression

Kansas City at Miami -4 O/U 41.5

A slew of injuries for the Kansas City Chiefs heading into Sunday's game at Miami. Running back Jamaal Charles (ankle) is out and cornerback Eric Berry (ankle) is questionable. Check out the numbers behind those currently sidelined below. Note that the Chiefs were the healthiest team in the league last year based on fewest starts lost to injury.


The loss of Charles and Berry means the hard-luck Chiefs (0-2) are down seven starters to injuries and suspensions. Those seven players have combined to start 355 games, play in 492 games and appear in nine Pro Bowls over 43-plus seasons in the NFL.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFL Week 2 Betting Recap

09.15.2014     07:18 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
My September NFL betting mantra is relatively simple.  It can be stated in one sentence: “Bet on good teams, and bet against bad teams.”   This strategy tends to be at its best  very early in the season, before the betting markets catch up to how good or how bad teams actually are compared to last year. 

That strategy did not fare well this past weekend for two reasons – many of the good teams played poorly and a good handful of the bad teams stepped up.  Of the seven top teams in my power ratings, only two managed to cover the pointspread on Sunday (Cincinnati and New England).  Seattle, New Orleans and San Francisco all lost SU as favorites.  Denver won, by not my enough of a margin to cover the number.  And Green Bay pushed against the closing number but lost for anyone who bet the Packers throughout the course of the week.

On the other end of the spectrum, many of the bottom teams in my power ratings stepped up and played a good game.  The worst two teams in the league – Jacksonville and Oakland, according to my numbers – are both 0-2 SU, 0-2 ATS.  Other weak teams like the Read more
