College Basketball Handicapping: DEFCON 2 alert for Ohio State?

01.23.2014     11:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The sky is falling in Columbus as Ohio State enters tonight's game against Illinois on a four-game losing streak. We seem to remember Louisville losing going through similar struggles last year before closing 19-1 and of course winning a National Championship. The Buckeyes don't look to be on the level though going through a mid-season swoon is pretty much unavoidable at the major conference level. Wisconsin was well on its way to a perfect season according to some and now the Badgers enter this weekend on a three-game slide.  Arizona’s regression is coming as well.


“I think honestly we need a couple to go down for us and regain a little momentum and a little confidence in our stroke,” Matta said. “It’s one of those deals that sometimes the best answer is make a couple and everything sort of takes care of itself.”

College Football Handicapping: Early thoughts on Rose, Fiesta, Sugar, BCS and more

Rose Bowl / Rose Bowl / Pasadena, CA
255 Michigan State
256 Stanford -2 (Power Rating)

Game Opened: Stanford -3 Total Not posted
Current Line: Stanford -4 or -4.5 Total Not yet posted

Early Thoughts
1. Obviously a battle of mirror images as similar style offenses and arguably the nation’s toughest defenses meet. Both teams are extremely happy to be in this game which should equate to 60 minutes of full effort from each side.   
  
2. Can’t help but feel the edge in this game goes to Stanford because they’ve produced equally stellar defensive results against far superior offensive competition. Indiana, Nebraska and Ohio State are the best offenses MSU faced this season and they allowed 28, 28, and 24 points to those teams for an average of 26.7 per game. The Spartans overall defensive numbers are somewhat skewed by the seven lousy offenses they played.             

3. The passing game and offensive line will be vital to each team’s success and probably determine the Read more

College Football Handicapping: Conference Championship lines move off of key numbers

12.02.2013     06:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Early bettors got a jump on some key numbers for Saturday's conference championships. CRIS opened Auburn as a 3-point favorite vs. Missouri but it has since moved to -2/-1.5. In the PAC-12 Arizona State opened -3 vs. Stanford (game in Tempe) and was bet up to -3.5. The Ohio State-Michigan State line has bounced around with the Buckeyes opening -6.5 but down to -5.5. Fresno State hosts Utah State for the Mountain West Championship. The Bulldogs opened -3.5 but were bet down to -3 with juice. Florida State is north of a four touchdown favorite over Duke for the ACC title game. No line yet on C-USA's Marshall-Rice matchup. And on Friday, undefeated Northern Illinois is currently 3-point chalk vs. Bowling Green (game in Detroit).

College Football Betting Preview: Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines

Ohio State at Michigan
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -14 O/U 58
CRIS Current: Ohio State -14.5 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio State -14
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Ohio State

To say that the Buckeyes have a special chip on their shoulder this week is something of an understatement.  That’s very bad news for the Wolverines, especially when we consider Michigan’s significant offensive decline as the season has progressed.

The last time Ohio State visited the Big House, Michigan hung 40 on the Buckeyes in a win that snapped a seven game skid for the Wolverines.  Ohio State got right back on track last year, with a win and cover against Michigan in Columbus.  This series is still called a rivalry but it really hasn’t been much of a rivalry since Lloyd Carr left town.

Ohio State won’t take prisoners in this Read more

College Football Gambling: Ohio State upset it didn't cover the spread vs. Illinois

11.18.2013     12:17 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Putting to rest the theory that college kids don't know the pointspread of their games...


"We're disappointed by [winning at Illinois] 60-35. We didn't cover whatever spread that we needed to, didn't score enough points to boost up our rating. That's a reason why we're disappointed with the way that we played. It's reality."

Ohio State -14.5 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Ohio State -14.5 o/U 56.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio State -12
Marty Otto's Recommendation: Over

It’s a primetime ABC television tilt between Penn State and Ohio State as they renew their classic rivalry. The unbeaten Buckeyes survived a strong test from Iowa last week and look to keep their slim BCS title hopes alive. In order to do so they need to not only win but likely win by big margins moving forward as well as get a little help in the form of losses from two teams currently in front of them in the BCS rankings. For Penn State this likely represents their “BCS Title” game as they remain banned from the postseason.

Give much credit to Bill O’Brien and the job he’s done as well as to the kids who have played their tails off for him since he took Read more

NCAA Football Gambling: Ohio State content to milk clock late in games

Ohio State -7 at Northwestern O/U 60

Back when Jim Tressel was coaching Ohio State, second half bets on the under – especially when the Buckeyes had a big lead – were very profitable. We've seen some of that this year under Urban Meyer as OSU has little trouble putting up points in the first half but happy to take its foot off the pedal late in games. Against Wisconsin, Ohio State essentially shut down the offense and tried to milk the clock in the second half. It almost backfired as the Badgers had the ball down seven with over a minute to play. All told, in four games against FBS competition, OSU has scored 120 points in the first half and only 48 in the second half. That may change when/if games become more competitive but Meyer made it clear that it isn't about style points but rather wins.

I'll admit I was a little turned off by Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster's verbal distaste for having to play Georgia Tech on short rest. I knew Tech's defense was good but the Yellow Jackets are notorious for taking advantage of ill-prepared teams. Foster however may have been sandbagging because the Hokies went down to Atlanta and completely shut down GT's running game (129 yards). And what makes Foster's defense impressive is how they've progressively gotten better against Tech's offense: 2010 - 426 total yards, 2011 - 340 total yards, 2012 - 288 total yards, and last week - 273 yards. Saturday's win marked the Hokies' fourth straight victory over the Yellow Jackets. And I'll throw a little praise Logan Thomas' way. The senior QB came up with arguably his best performance in two seasons: 19-of-25, 221 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT, 58 yards rushing, 1 TD.

If you follow me and the Sportsmemo blog's game previews you know that I've been having a field day betting against SMU. The Mustangs put up a little better effort against TCU (10-7 lead at halftime) but once again broke down when times got tough. The Horned Frogs put up 31 in the fourth quarter including a kick Read more

Wisconsin at Ohio State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -7.5 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: Ohio State -6.5 (-120) O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Ohio State -6.5
Marty Otto's Recommendation: Over

It will be 8 pm local time in Columbus when the Buckeyes and Badgers play in front of 100,000 screaming fans at “The Shoe” in what shapes up as one of the biggest games of the weekend. ABC will have the coverage as these two Big Ten heavyweights look to take an early stronghold on the Leaders Division.

Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen is in his first year at the helm having come in from Utah State. His Aggies teams were stellar against the number when installed as road dogs going 14-2 ATS in that role during his tenure. He seems like a great fit here for the Badgers and his blue collar approach and willingness to lean on a three-headed monster of a running game should Read more
