College Football Gambling: Skip Holtz tries to play underdog card but bettors aren't buying it

09.10.2015     07:00 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Louisiana Tech head coach Skip Holtz knows pointspreads and was quick to pull out the underdog card for tonight's game at Western Kentucky. But the betting markets feel the favorable spot for the Hilltoppers isn't enough to warrant being home chalk. Tech played on Saturday albeit a 62-15 romp over Southern while WKU grinded out an ugly win over Vanderbilt last Thursday. And then there's the revenge angle after the Bulldogs unloaded on the Hilltoppers 59-10 last season. But as of Thursday morning, Tech has settled in as a -2 road favorite.

“When you look at what everyone is projecting, we’re playing at their place on a short week where they’ve had a full week to prepare for this game,” Holtz said Monday. “The experience they have coming back. The transfer players (from UAB) that are making a difference on

ESPN's gambling coverage starting to irk folks

09.09.2015     10:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With football season underway terms like "pointspread", "underdog", and "cover" get tossed around pretty loosely by bettors and non-bettors alike. ESPN -- and others -- continue to find ways to interject gambling angles into their coverage because let's be honest, there isn't much to talk about when a four touchdown SEC favorite takes on a team from the Sun Belt. But even if the majority embraces the additional way to look at a game, there are still those who don't find it all that amusing -- particularly those affiliated with the schools we bet on and of course the NCAA. 

“Coverage of sports betting has been carefully considered over a long period of time,” the ESPN statement said. “We recognize that fans are increasingly interested in this conversation and that millions engage in legal sports betting. Our coverage has mirrored that larger trend in recent years and this is another step. We will approach this subject the way we do any beat we cover

College Football Betting Preview: Boise State Broncos at BYU Cougars

Boise State at BYU
Saturday, 7:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Boise State -2 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Boise State -3 O/U 54.5
Recommendation: Under

A lot of angles to consider with this matchup as Boise State travels to BYU. The biggest of course is the season-ending injury to BYU's Taysom Hill. No doubt Hill was a special player but the Cougars have plenty of experience playing without him and during his absence last season, there wasn't a significant drop off in offensive production. In four games with Hill, BYU averaged 450 ypg and 37.5 ppg. In eight games without Hill, BYU averaged 470 ypg and 39 ppg. Freshman Tanner Mangum is slated to take over for hill. Magnum, who just turned 22 years old, comes in highly regarded.

I have my concerns with Boise State's quarterback Ryan Finley who didn't look particularly comfortable in Week 1's narrow win over Washington. Finely threw for only 129 yards on 26 pass attempts including an interception. It was clear in the second half when the Huskies narrowed the margin that head coach Bryan Harsin didn't have a lot of confidence in his sophomore signal Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Iowa Hawkeyes at Iowa State Cyclones

Iowa at Iowa State
Saturday, 1:45 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Iowa -4.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Iowa -3.5 O/U 52.5
Recommendation: Under

From a historical perspective, it's interesting that this weekend's Iowa-Iowa State game is totaled at 52.5 (opened 54). The two squads obviously play one another each season and over the last 10 seasons, not one game was lined above 49.5. Taking it a step further, of those 10 games, not once did the score top 48 in regulation. And there's a logical reason for this: Iowa, who is usually the stronger of the two teams, tends to play at a slow pace with a focus on running the football.

The question now becomes, has anything changed with either squad to warrant the inflated total? Neither squad is tremendous defensively, though as we saw last season, when healthy and at full strength, the Hawkeyes have the ability to be above average. Over its first five games last year, Iowa allowed 17.2 ppg. It wasn't until they started playing capable and sometimes dynamic offenses that the unit was exposed. I'm not sure Iowa State qualifies as dynamic. Despite playing in a number Read more

College Football Gambling Update: Texas switches play caller after one game

09.09.2015     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly

Knee-jerk or justified? The jury is out as Texas head coach Charlie Strong announced that wide receiver coach Jay Norvell will now call plays following Week 1's 38-3 loss to Notre Dame. Norvell takes over for co-OC Shawn Watson. Yes, the Longhorns' offense performance against the Irish was abysmal but playing on the road against a top-tier defense as you attempt to break in a new offense isn't ideal. We'll see how the Longhorns respond this weekend against Rice. The Owls return four starters on defense after allowing 28.5 ppg last year. Note the Rice's schedule included seven teams that ranked 100th or worse in total offense.

"We have to evaluate every aspect of this program and what's key is getting this program on track," Strong said during a Tuesday evening press conference. "We have to do a better job of coaching.

Notre Dame at Virginia
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -10 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -11.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Virginia

There is not much to dislike about Notre Dame’s impressive 38-3 romp over the Texas Longhorns last week. For starters, they outgained the Longhorns by a stunning 527-163 margin. Quarterback Malik Zaire was terrific completing 19-for-22 passes for 313 yards with 3 TDs and no picks and the ground attack led by C.J. Prosise and Josh Adams combined for 147 yards and 5.88 yards per carry. It was dominance on both sides of the line of scrimmage for Notre Dame who allowed just 60 rushing yards at a paltry 2.1 yards per carry clip and yielded barely over 100 yards passing amazing when you consider UT was playing the entire game from behind. However, as a result, we appear to be laying a tax with the Irish to go along with the early market support.

Virginia didn’t play its best in a 34-16 loss at UCLA but it is never an easy travel/scheduling situation Read more

College Football Betting Preview: LSU Tigers at Mississippi State Bulldogs

LSU at Mississippi State
Saturday, 6:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: LSU -2 O/U 49
CRIS Current: LSU -4 O/U 49.5
Recommendation: LSU

It's an early season battle in the SEC as LSU travels to Starkville to kick off conference play against Mississippi State. Because of a severe storm that affected many states in the Southern part of the country, LSU's scheduled opener against McNeese State on Saturday was cancelled, making this contest their first of the campaign. As for Mississippi State, the Bulldogs won but failed to cover in 34-16 triumph over Southern Miss. Much of the victory was in part due to special teams and defense. Brandon Holloway returned a kick for 100 yards and the stop unit held USM to a respectable 5.16 ypp and forced two turnovers.

This weekend's battle will be a lot tougher for quarterback Dak Prescott as the 5th-year senior didn’t look particularly sharp last week completing only 22-of-38 passes. He was able to offset it by rushing for a team-high 72 yards. Note that Prescott will be a top priority for the Bayou Bengals’ defense under first-year Read more

College Football Gambling: Kansas' long season starts with a bang

09.08.2015     08:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
If there are any positives for the Kansas Jayhawks it's that first-year head coach David Beaty is a realist and knows pointspreads. Following Week 1's 41-38 loss to South Dakota, Beaty noted that his team is likely to be underdogs in every game this season. We agree as a trip to Iowa State and a home tilt against Texas Tech likely serve as the only semi-competitively line affairs. Despite falling behind 31-7, some of the final box score actually favored the Jayhawks. Even with a 91-yard kickoff return, KU outgained SDSU 576-463 and ran the ball for 285 yards (5.6 ypc). The defense however was atrocious as SDSU averaged 6.43 ypp. This week's opponent, Memphis, opened as -11.5 road chalk, but have already been bet up to -13.5/-14.

“Until we earn it, we’re gonna be underdogs in every game we have,” said Beaty, whose Jayhawks are double-digit dogs for their Week 2 contest against Memphis. “That’s just the way it is. And we need to be playing like we’re the underdogs.”
