College Football Betting Preview: Oregon State Beavers at Arizona Wildcats

Oregon State at Arizona
Saturday, 1 pm PT - FS-1
CRIS Opener:
Arizona -10.5 O/U 64.5
CRIS Current: Arizona -8.5 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: Arizona

Back-to-back blowout losses has Arizona limping into Saturday's must-win game against Oregon State. The Wildcats are dealing with multiple key injuries most notably quarterback Anu Solomon who is currently listed as questionable with a concussion. But the real problem for the Cats is stopping the opposition as UCLA and Stanford both racked up big yards and big points. Head coach Rich Rodriguez has come out and said that he won't make drastic changes to his defense. Perhaps Saturday's foe, who with a freshman quarterback and limited big play ability, will serve as an opportunity to bounce back.

The handicap in this game comes down to who will win the battle in the trenches. Against Stanford, Oregon State was outgained by 102 total yards and an alarming 325-111 on the ground. The Cardinal averaged 6.8 yards per carry after averaging less than 4 ypc in their previous three games. Michigan racked up 225 yards on the ground against OSU; a 166-yard Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Washington State Cougars at Oregon Ducks

Washington State at Oregon
Saturday, 3 pm PT - PAC-12 Network
CRIS Opener:
Oregon -17 O/U 74
CRIS Current: Oregon -17 O/U 70
Recommendation: Washington State

Last week the Oregon Ducks took control in the second half against Colorado turning a tie game at half into a 41-24 win as they rebounded at least temporarily from the embarrassing 62-20 home loss to the Utah Utes. However, I feel the Washington State Cougars have enough edges and a good enough offense right now to make this a competitive game for a full 60 minutes.

Oregon is on a 0-3 ATS slide at home failing to even sniff pointspread covers in games against Eastern Washington (won by 19 laying -35), Georgia State (won by 33 laying -42.5) and the aforementioned loss to Utah. Washington State is getting very solid quarterback play from Luke Falk who has completed 72.6% of his passes for 1,459 passing yards and a strong 10-2 TD-INT ratio. The ability to move the football through the air is exactly what Oregon has struggled against dating back to last season. In 2013, the Ducks' secondary was one of the best in the country as opposing Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Maryland Terrapins at Ohio State Buckeyes

Maryland at Ohio State
Saturday, 9 am PT - Big Ten
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -29.5 O/U 53
CRIS Current: Ohio State -33 O/U 54
Recommendation: Ohio State

5-0 but 1-4 against the spread, No. 1 ranked Ohio State returns home after slipping past Indiana last week, 34-27. The Buckeyes outgained the Hoosiers by over 100 yards and got 274 yards on the ground from Ezekiel Elliott but three turnovers allowed IU to stick around. Since dismantling Virginia Tech in Week 1 (a win that doesn't look as impressive with the Hokies dropping back-to-back games to East Carolina and Pittsburgh) the Buckeyes have looked disjointed. A lot of their struggles can be blamed on inefficiencies in the red zone. The supposed top-ranked team in the country currently has a 37.5% touchdown rate in the red zone which ranks 121st. It's a far cry from last year's 71.6%. But with as much talent as the Buckeyes have, it's a very correctable problem.

And back at home against Maryland should serve as a prime opportunity to make a correction. The Terps are a complete mess right now with head coach Randy Edsall with one foot out the Read more

DFS sites place ban on employee participation

10.06.2015     08:33 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Scramble mode for DFS site FanDuel and DraftKings after word got out various employees were using their ability to access accounts to better position themselves for various contests. As actual sports bettors, it's both comical and concerning to sit back and watch these sites pedal themselves as not only legit but "skill based." It's all bullshit, but on the same token, you want them to succeed to a certain degree with the hope it will eventually lead to nationwide legalized sports betting. Not looking good, is it?


“We’ve heard from users that they would appreciate more clarity about the rules for this issue. In the interim, while the industry works to develop and release a more detailed policy, DraftKings and FanDuel have decided to prohibit employees from participating in online fantasy sports contests for money.”

College Football Betting Preview: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Clemson Tigers

Georgia Tech at Clemson
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Clemson -8.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Clemson -6.5 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech's season is heading in the wrong direction after three straight losses including last week's meltdown against North Carolina. There are concerns for the Yellow Jackets on both sides of the football. With a shaky offensive line and limited playmakers, Tech produced a pedestrian 4.6 yards per play against Notre Dame, Duke, and North Carolina. And on the flip side, the defense allowed 6.4 ypp during that span. Perhaps the most glaring stat, one that Tech has thrived at under Paul Johnson, is third down conversions. The offense is built to be put in 3rd and short situations where it can pick up easy first downs and thus control the clock. Last season, the Yellow Jackets converted on 58% of their third downs which was the best mark in the country by over 5%. This season they are at 35% and an even worse 28% against the aforementioned three teams. That speaks volumes about Tech's lack of offensive weaponry.

Clemson (4-0) meanwhile is Read more

College Football Handicapping: Slow, low scoring teams continue to go under the total

10.06.2015     06:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week's college football slate was likely a good one for sportsbooks with unders cashing at 77% clip. Totals finished the week 13-43-2 O/U with the average total around 55 and the average score 49. Some of it was weather related with a number of East Coast games hampered by wind and rain. However, the totals results were based on closing numbers, a number of which had already seen heavy under steam.

Heading into Week 6 we currently see four games lined below 40 points. Note that there were only three games all of last season that closed with a total below 40.

Wake Forest-Boston College 36.5
Northwestern-Michigan 35
Florida-Missouri 39.5
UConn-UCF 38.5


But it's not like scoring is down across the board. Baylor and Texas Tech, two of the fastest, touchdown happy teams in the country are a combined 8-1 O/U. But slow, offensively challenged teams have had no trouble cashing under tickets despite weekly adjustments. For example, Northwestern, Michigan, UConn, UCF, Boston College, and Vanderbilt have cashed only two overs with 26 unders and two pushes combined. Ironically, six of those teams make up three of the four games Read more

Player data leaked at DraftKings

10.05.2015     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
DraftKings reportedly had issues regarding leaked player data calling into question the regulation of the DFS industry.


With too many employees presumably having access to this inside information, it raises the specter of insiders using this non-public information to gain an edge when they play similar contests for big money on other sites.

At a minimum, DFS employees and insiders should be restricted from playing on any site (not just their own), and access to this type of information should be limited only to the most essential of personnel. If it’s too easily accessible to most employees, the risk and suspicion of insider profiteering will not go away anytime soon.
