NFL Gambling Alert: Cowboys say Romo will play vs. Eagles

12.30.2016     09:35 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The Dallas Cowboys are locked in as the No. 1 seed in the NFC which means Sunday's game at Philadelphia doesn't mean much; hence the 8.5-point line move towards the Eagles. According to reports, Dak Prescott will start but Tony Romo is expected to see the field for the first time this season.

"It's never bad to get reps in games, but again, that question is for someone other than me," Linehan said. "You could argue both reasons why you would or wouldn't, but we've got to go play the game. If you spend a bunch of time concerned about things that could happen negatively, you get consumed by that, but I think we do a good job and Coach Garrett does a great job of just focusing on getting ready to play and focusing on the right things, and that's what we're doing."

Arizona Bowl Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars vs. Air Force Falcons

South Alabama vs. Air Force
Arizona Bowl - Tucson
Friday, 2:30 pm PT
CRIS Opener:
Air Force -12.5 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: Air Force -13.5 O/U 58
Recommendation: Over

Air Force’s the triple option offense closed the regular season hitting on all cylinders as it averaged 366.6 ypg on the ground during a five-game winning streak. South Alabama’s offense enjoyed similar late season success. Over the Jaguars’ last four games, the offense averaged 224.8 ypg on the ground and 259.8 ypg through the air. In looking at this matchup, both offenses should maintain their current form in what has the potential to be a high-scoring affair.

One interesting dynamic to this handicap is the health and status of Air Force quarterback Nate Romine who remains listed as questionable. I mentioned earlier how potent the Falcons’ offense had been during their five-game win streak. Well, much of the damage was courtesy of backup Arion Worthman who as a sophomore appears to the be the future of the AFA offense. Regardless of who starts, both quarterbacks are capable of making the offense hum, Read more

NFL Handicapping: New England says it won't rest starters vs. Miami

12.29.2016     09:33 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The New England Patriots aren't expected to rest any key players for Sunday's Week 17 game at Miami. The Pats need to win to ensure the AFC's top seed and home field advantage. At 10-5, the Dolphins are in though the outcome of Sunday's game could impact their seedings. New England opened -6 but has since been bet up to -10.

“I don’t really understand that question,” Belichick said. “We have — I don’t know how many starters we have, but we have a lot more than — we can only inactivate seven players, so this isn’t like a preseason game where you have 75 guys on your roster. This is a regular season game, so I don’t really understand that whole line of questioning. I’m not saying I’m a great mathematician or anything, but the numbers just don’t add up for that type of conversation.”

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills

Miami at Buffalo
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Buffalo -3 O/U 44
CRIS Current: Buffalo -4.5 O/U 43.5
Recommendation: Miami

The betting markets seem fixated by the series history here.  Yes, Rich Stadium has been a house of horrors in recent years for Miami.  The Dolphins lost by 16 on this field last year, by 19 in 2014 and by 19 in 2013, part of a 1-7 SU run here in Buffalo.  I couldn’t care less about the series history here.  This year’s Dolphins team is better than any recent version; not an apples to apples comparison.

And the markets are convinced that Miami won’t bring their ‘A’ game to this cold weather venue.  But gametime temperatures are expected to be above freezing, and Miami certainly didn’t look all that negatively affected by much nastier conditions in New Jersey against the Jets last Saturday.  It is worth noting that Miami played on Saturday last week – they’ve got a normal prep week, while the Bills are on a short week.

The markets focus on stats, and Buffalo has a solid statistical Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

12.20.2016     09:42 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Denver +8 at Los Angeles O/U 219
Recommendation: Denver

The Clippers come back home after a three-game road trip but they do so without the services of Blake Griffin who is having arthroscopic knee surgery. Without Griffin, the dynamics on offense change drastically. Fundamentally, their transition offense is now significantly downgraded and in the half court, they do not have a replacement with Griffin’s capabilities. Playing without their leading scorer isn’t new since the Clippers did it for 45 games last season but it does force a restructuring of sorts to their offensive style and it places a heavy burden on Chris Paul, J.J. Reddick and Jamal Crawford. That backcourt trio presents the only real offensive threats proven enough to try and compensate for the 21.2 ppg that will be missing for the next three to six weeks. Depth and defense are also obviously hurt for the Clippers who are in a current 4-13 tailspin against the spread.

Denver on the other hand is fully healthy for the first time this season and they are 3-0 ATS in their last three including a 117-107 home win and cover against Dallas last night. The Nuggets Read more

Dollar General Bowl Betting Preview: Ohio Bobcats vs. Troy Trojans

Ohio vs. Troy
Dollas General Bowl - Mobile, Ala.
Friday, 5 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Troy -4 O/U 49
CRIS Current: Troy -4 O/U 49
Recommendation: Ohio

The Troy Trojans (9-3) have already played in Ladd Peebles Stadium with a late October win over South Alabama, 28-21. The 166-mile drive from Troy to Mobile will likely mean more Trojan faithful in the seats and perhaps a little home field advantage but there are a number of angles that point towards there being value on the underdog Ohio Bobcats.

The Trojans are led by second-year head coach Neil Brown and quarterback Brandon Silvers. Silvers put up respectable numbers in Sun Belt play (264 ypg, 12-6 TD-to-INT ratio) but a closer examination shows he struggled against the league’s better defenses. Against Appalachian State, Silvers finished with a 114.4 QB rating and dismal 85.6 against Arkansas State. Those were by far his two worst performances of the season vs. league foes. The Arkansas State game is of particular significance because the Red Wolves boast one of the better front sevens in the mid-major circuit with 125 tackles for Read more

NFL Gambling News: Bettors should avoid the Minnesota Vikings

12.19.2016     12:01 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC blog entry.
Last week, I looked at betting strategies for two AFC teams the remainder of the season. We pegged Kansas City as “bet against” and Pittsburgh “bet on” as both teams delivered with the Chiefs losing outright at home to Tennessee and the Steelers getting the win and cover at Cincinnati. This week we’ll use the same format but turn our attention to the NFC.

The Detroit Lions’ lead in the NFC North fell to just one game following their 17-6 loss at New York and Green Bay’s win at Chicago. New York’s defense is an elite-level unit but Detroit was able to move the football at times and actually outgained the Giants 324-300. Unfortunately for the Lions, they were on the wrong end of some bad bounces with a -2 turnover margin including a key fumble inside New York’s 5-yard line. I however came away impressed with the Lions’ defense as it held its eighth straight opponent to 20 points or less. Sunday’s somewhat misleading result may provide residual betting value moving forward. We’ve already seen this week’s opponent, Dallas, take early money with Detroit now +7.5 road underdogs after opening +7. Read more
