College Football Gambling: Penn State has been a great first quarter bet

10.24.2012     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Ohio State at Penn State pk O/U 50.5

Good article on Penn State's fast starts. The Nittany Lions have outscored their opponents 66-0 in the first quarter thanks in part to their up-tempo offense. On the flip side, Ohio State has been very sluggish out of the gates. Last week the Buckeyes trailed Purdue 13-7 and also fell behind to Nebraska (14-7) and UAB (6-0) before rallying back. OSU has been outscored 56-51 in the first quarter. Perhaps a trend to consider if you play at a sportsbook that offers first quarter lines.


“We’re just getting more and more comfortable with it each week. I couldn’t even tell you the amount of plays we have in there,” McGloin said. “Everybody knows the plays, everybody knows the formations and that’s just what we do throughout the week. It’s not just Read more

College Football Betting: Ohio State desperate for defensive turnaround

Purdue at Ohio State -17

Nothing wrong with Ohio State's offense as it hung 115 points on Nebraska and Indiana the last two weeks. Defensively is where the Buckeyes have concerns. Lack of depth and injuries were on full display last Saturday as OSU allowed 35 second half points to the Hoosiers. Of the nation’s 10 remaining undefeated teams, Ohio State has the worst total defense (71st, 400 ypg). Perhaps an opportunity to bounce back with Purdue coming to town. In two Big Ten games, the Boilermakers have netted just 27 points on 3.88 yards per play.

Ohio State's Big Ten Rankings - Defense
Scoring Defense - 8th, 24.6 ppg
Total Defense - 10th, 400.0 ypg
Yards per Play - 9th, 5.49
Passing Defense - 12th, 277.7 ypg
Passing Yards per Attempt - t-8th, 6.5

College Football Betting Preview: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Ohio State Buckeyes

Nebraska at Ohio State
Rob Veno’s Recommendation:
Ohio State
Saturday, 5 pm PT – ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -4 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: Ohio State -3 (-115) O/U 58
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Ohio State -4.5

Each of these teams narrowly escaped with a victory last week despite holding enormous rush yardage advantages over their opponents. Despite winning records through five games, neither has been overly impressive against the pointspread as Nebraska (3-2 ATS) has defeated the number by double-digits just once (home vs. FCS Idaho State) while Ohio State (2-3 ATS) has done exactly the same (home vs. Miami-Ohio). The opener of Ohio State -4 has been pushed down to -3 which somewhat disagrees with my power rating number of -4.5 but isn’t that significant. In fact, there’s not much significant Read more

College Football Handicapping: Big Ten conference schedules

05.30.2012     10:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It is not even June so we'll refrain from any serious schedule analysis for the upcoming college football season. We will however be taking a look at various conference schedules over the next few weeks starting today with the Big Ten. Nebraska has a tough draw in terms of its opponents from the Leaders Division. The Cornhuskers face Ohio State, Wisconsin and Penn State and miss out on Illinois, Indiana and Purdue. Penn State meanwhile skips both Michigan schools and has winnable road games at Illinois and Purdue. The Nittany Lions also have homes games vs. Wisconsin, Ohio State and Northwestern. Ohio State was given no favors with matchups against Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska out of the Legends Division. The Buckeyes also travel to Wisconsin and Penn State.

Sportsmemo's Teddy Covers offer last minute opinions on betting the Final Four

03.31.2012     07:30 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sportsmemo's Teddy Covers was featured in Chad Millman's ESPN Final Four preview. Below is what Teddy had to say about both matchups.


Covers says: "I actually thought Louisville-Kentucky would be a little shorter at about seven. Betonline opened at 9.5, 5Dimes opened at 8. I honestly think that number is a little bit high. With Kentucky you are talking about four or five guys that could start in the NBA next year. The problem with that side is I don't think they can play any better than they did recently -- they were just lights out. And yet against Indiana and Baylor, there we were at the end and sweating it out. As good as they were and as well as they played, there is not a lot of value on the Kentucky side. Louisville is a great dog, 8-3 catching points this year. Look at the first game these two played: The fact that Louisville held Kentucky under 30 percent shooting in that game tells us that team has the potential to keep the game in check. I haven't bet it yet because I think we might see 9.5 in Vegas before we tip off."

Covers says: "In February, before the brackets, I wrote that I thought these two teams would play for the Read more

NCAA Tournmanet Betting: Final Four Against the Spread Notes

03.27.2012     06:37 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Final Four in New Orleans is set as no. 1 seed Kentucky, no. 2 Ohio State, no. 2 Kansas and no. 4 Louisville light up the Superdome. The Elite Eight had some super finishes and tight contests with three of the four games landing within five points of the poinspread.  The Kansas–North Carolina game had a one-point margin with 3+ minutes to go before the Jayhawks finished the game on a 12-0 run to pull away for the win.

The Sweet Sixteen also had many close contests with all four games last Friday landing within five points of the pointspread. Of the 12 games last week, eight landed within five points of the line. During the course of the college basketball season, 40% of all games landed within five points of the betting line, so you can see how tight the numbers are as the tournament progresses.

With that said, here are some Final Four Against-the-Spread (ATS) notes. Since 1998, the better seeded team is 21-8 SU and 22-7 ATS. Teams seeded no. 4 or worse are 1-10 SU and 2-9 ATS if they are playing a better seeded team. Top-seeded no. 1 teams taking on a worse seed are 15-4 SU and 14-5 ATS the past 14 years including 11-3 ATS if favored by -8 or Read more

Sportsmemo Handicapper Teddy Covers' NCAA Tournament Final Four Betting Preview

03.26.2012     10:26 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Over the last two weeks we’ve seen 64 NCAA Tournament teams get eliminated from the field, leaving only the Final Four remaining with a chance to cut down the nets in New Orleans next Monday.

College hoops statistical guru Ken Pomeroy breaks down the four teams chances to win the title as follows: Kentucky 42%, Ohio State 34%, Kansas 17% and Louisville 7%. From my perspective, if John Calipari’s Wildcats play as well next weekend as they did this past weekend, that 42% chance of a title looks pretty darn low.

That being said, it’s going to be very hard for Kentucky to match their near flawless offensive performances in wins over Baylor and Indiana. The Wildcats have scored a ridiculous 220 points in their last 163 possessions; a 1.35 points per possession ratio. Those are not sustainable numbers, even for a team that closed out the weekend ranked #2 in the country (behind only Missouri) with 1.17 points per possession average.

Both Final Four games are rematches of non-conference affairs from earlier in the season. The talking heads on TV are sure to bring up this angle ad nauseum, but the bottom line is that neither affair had a Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: LIU-Brooklyn Blackbirds vs. Michigan State Spartans

LIU Brooklyn vs. Michigan State -19.5 O/U 154
Recommendation: LIU-Brooklyn


The Big Ten’s second best delivered a Fairway forecast winner on these pages Thursday when Ohio State pulled through as a big favorite over Loyola-MD. Now the Big Ten’s best is asked to win big for their betting backers as the Midwest Region’s top seed. Michigan State (27-7) has had a magical season as co-Big Ten champs and conference tournament champions. They are a together team with a star senior leader in Draymond Green inside and a quick, dynamic point guard in Keith Appling. As usual, the Spartans are one of the nation’s top rebounding teams and play superior defense under head coach Tom Izzo. Following a buzzer beater by Ohio State to beat Michigan State in their regular season finale 12 days ago, the Spartans swept through the Big Ten tournament to beat the Buckeyes in the championship game five days ago. That redemption game for all the marbles Read more
