College Football Gambling: Virginia Tech tries to close out disappointing season strong

Virginia Tech vs. UCLA -7 O/U 47

Virginia Tech's talks about preperation and mindset for its Sun Bowl matchup against UCLA.


“The fact of the matter is, we let three football games slip away,” first-year offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler said Saturday during the team’s bowl media day. “I think this bowl preparation, we should have a chip on our shoulder.”

“I think I can count on one hand how many plays I’d like to have back all year,” defensive coordinator Bud Foster said. “The kids did everything we asked of them all year defensively. … We had an ACC championship defense, if not a national championship-type defense.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Manhattan Jaspers at South Carolina Gamecocks

Manhattan at South Carolina -2.5
Recommendation: South Carolina


Pair of potential problems exists here for home-standing Gamecocks who have shown a mixed bag of results in their 2-3 start to this season. The first concern is the 11-day layoff South Carolina has had since playing its last game which was a disastrous 75-52 road loss to no. 7 Oklahoma State. That game magnified the second concern for head coach Frank Martin’s team which is turnovers. South Carolina committed 24 of them against the up-tempo Cowboys which dropped them to 296th in the nation at 14.6 per game. Relentless pressure defense is what Manhattan is predicated on under 4th year head coach Steve Masiello and thus far they’ve forced 14.7 turnovers per game while averaging 7.4 steals. This would appear to be a hand in glove matchup for the Jaspers defense but the return of South Carolina guard Bruce Ellington tonight could help shore up some of the ball handling woes. Ellington (starting WR on SC’s football team) makes his first start and is a backcourt veteran.

These teams have similarities as both have been poor shooting the basketball (42.3% Manhattan, Read more

Little Caesars Bowl Betting Preview: Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Bowling Green Falcons

Pittsburgh vs. Bowling Green
Little Caesars - Detroit, Mich.
Thursday, December 26, 3 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Bowling Green -5.5 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Bowling Green -5 O/U 50
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Bowling Green -2

The Little Caesars Bowl represents a return to college football action after a brief day of rest for Christmas. It will showcase Pitt (6-6, ACC) and Bowling Green (10-3, MAC) doing battle at Ford Field in Detroit and we’ll examine how these teams got to be where they are and how they stack up.

Pitt was no guarantee to even make a bowl after their Jekyll and Hyde season. Inconsistent is probably the best way to describe this team and it’s easy to understand when you step back and look at them. They had to replace their starting quarterback, their leading rusher, and their best receiver to start the year couple with their transition to the ACC. They opened the year with a Read more

College Football Handicapping: Michigan's Gardner has yet to practice for bowl

Michigan vs. Kansas State -3.5 O/U 55.5

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner (turf toe) has yet to practice as the team prepares for their Buffalo Wild Wings matchup against Kansas State. It sounds as if he will play, especially considering Gardner's backup, Shane Morris, has attempted only nine passes. Gardner caught a lot of flak this season but closed the season strong with a 451 yard, 4 TD, 0 INT performance against Ohio State.


“He’s thrown the ball a little bit, but we haven’t done a whole lot,” Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday. “(We) don’t want to get him out there too soon. It’s more than anything making sure Read more

College Football Betting: Georgia and Nebraska face off for second straight year

Nebraska vs. Georgia -9 O/U 60.5

Sounds as if Georgia was a little disappointed to draw Nebraska for a second straight year after beating the Cornhuskers 45-31 in the Capital One Bowl. In that game, UGA closed as a 9.5-point favorite with a total of 62. Heading into the fourth quarter, the game was tied 31-31.


"I was kind of hoping we were going to play the U or I heard there was a chance we could play the alma mater,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said of Miami, where he was a backup quarterback. “This will be great because Nebraska is the team I grew up admiring. That was my team as a kid (in Omaha, Neb.) so it worked out good.”

“I was kind of like the other guys,” the Georgia senior offensive lineman said. “I did want to play Michigan or Iowa or Minnesota, just a

College Football Handicapping: North Carolina in the right frame of mind for Belk Bowl

Cincinnati vs. North Carolina -3 O/U 56.5

North Carolina's season was far from smooth as the Tar Heels started 1-5 and barely slipped into the postseason at 6-6. But this is a program that has been through a lot – NCAA issues, postseason ban, coaching changes, etc. – and is viewing the nearby Belk Bowl as an opportunity to send their seniors off on a good note.


“Think about this senior class and what they’ve been through,” UNC coach Larry Fedora said at the close of practice Monday.

“They come in here and we start out with the investigation. They see it through. They have to be the one to bear the weight of the sanctions,” Fedora said. “And then they had three head coaches, they’ve had two staffs. I know (defensive end) Kareem Martin has had six position coaches.

College Football Handicapping: Bowl Game Rushing Differentials

12.16.2013     09:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Below is a chart of every college football bowl matchup's rushing differential. It's a simple formula of yards per carry and yards per carry allowed. For example, Alabama averages 5.97 ypc and 3.37 ypca which equal a +2.60 differential. While the dynamics of college football have changed over the last few years, accurately identifying teams that will win the rushing battle in a particular matchup can still put bettors in a favorable position. The handicap obviously goes well beyond the raw numbers. Houston has over a yard "advantage" over Vanderbilt but you must account for conference affiliation and/or strength of schedule. Against UCF, Louisville, and Cincinnati, the Cougars were -1.15 – a far better indicator of what to expect against the Commodores. Like our strength of schedule chart, these numbers are well accounted for in the lines, but when you include them with other factors – motivation, health, location, etc. – you begin to find opportunities.
