Texas A&M at Alabama
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -12.5 O/U 58.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -13.5 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -6
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Texas A&M

This matchup consists of two teams that are being widely hailed as major disappointments by the media and even their own fans. Texas A&M has dropped its last two games and needed overtime to edge Arkansas three games back. Alabama has just one loss (vs. Ole Miss) but was very lucky to win last week at Arkansas thanks to a missed PAT by the Razorbacks.

So what is the reality of these teams? To me Texas A&M is about what I expected them to be. Not quite as good offensively as they were in the Johnny Football years, but still pretty good. Any Kevin Sumlin offense is going to move the ball and light up the scoreboard. They just happened to face the top two teams in the country Read more

College Football Handicapping: Iowa State not married to new found up-tempo offense

10.16.2014     07:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Through its first five games, Iowa State averaged a very pedestrian 67 plays per game. Last week against Toledo, they incorperated some up-tempo, ran 87 plays, and scored 37 points in the win. But heading into Sunday's game on the road against Texas, it appears that the Cyclones are going to revert back to a more controlled style of offense.


“It can be a real detriment to your defense if you are not (successful) and coming off the field quite quickly,” Rhoads said.

College Football Betting Alert: Indiana down to third string quarterback

10.15.2014     02:55 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Well, this isn't good. Following the loss of Nate Sudfeld to a season-ending injury, Indiana's best case scenario at quarterback was true freshman Chris Covington who was originally slated to play linebacker. And head coach Kevin Wilson said Covington was, "hands down the team's best option." News however just broke that Covington won't play this weekend vs. Michigan State. Why he won't play isn't known outside of his mother saying so (huh?). Next in line is fellow freshman Zander Diamont. Line headed Sparty's way as we speak.

College Football Gambling: Rutgers isn't happy about how big of underdogs it is to Ohio State

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We've said this before; college football players and coaches know the pointspreads of their games. Here we have 5-1 Rutgers who is apparently pretty pissed about the +19.5 they're catching at Ohio State this weekend.


The lopsided line caught the attention of junior captain Darius Hamilton, who simply tweeted "19.5 underdogs...remember that...#choposu" on Monday night.

“It shows how disrespectful it is, but then again, we come in, we strap on the helmet and everybody bleeds just like how we bleed," Carroo said. "Everybody is the same. We just have to go out there and play, listen to coaching and go out there and know that we’re playing for each other and everything will take care of itself out there on the field.”

College Football Betting Preview: New Mexico State Aggies at Idaho Vandals

New Mexico State at Idaho
Saturday, 2 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Idaho -4 O/U 67.5
CRIS Current: Idaho -4 O/U 66.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Idaho -3.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: Over

The Idaho Vandals celebrate homecoming as they play host to the New Mexico State Aggies in a Sun Belt clash of bottom dwellers. It’s a unique scenario where the winless Vandals are 4-point favorites but perhaps warranted considering NMSU has allowed 41.8 ppg to FBS competition. But that horrific number isn’t that far removed from the home side which under the same parameters has allowed 39.2 ppg.  Even more alarming is 11 of their 12 combined games vs. FBS came against “mid-major teams.”

With two weak defenses the question now becomes are the offenses good enough to take advantage? I see promise with Idaho quarterback Matt Linehan who in his first season has completed Read more

Sportsmemo Handicapper Rob Veno has been creating his own Power Ratings for nearly two decades. His numbers are very well respected and an excellent tool for discovering value.

College Football Betting Preview: Missouri Tigers at Florida Gators

Missouri at Florida
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Florida -4 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: Florida -6 O/U 49.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida -1.5
OTTO Sports’ Recommendation: Missouri

We're halfway through the college football season and the beauty of the betting markets is the increased amount of varying opinions. Some bettors go on feel and what they see whereas others plug in a power rating and mechanically play what spits out. Either way it creates situations where value is created not because of oddsmakers but because of line moves. The Florida-Missouri game is a good example. The Tigers opened a respectable +4 but are now as high as +6. That may not seem like a significant move but considering three of the Gators' four SEC games were decided by a field goal, a point, and overtime, it could very easily be the difference between an ATS win or loss.

Florida hasn't been able Read more

College Football Betting Preview: UCLA Bruins at California Golden Bears

UCLA at California
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -8.5 O/U 76.5
CRIS Current: UCLA -7 O/U 74.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UCLA -8.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: California

I pointed out on the podcast Tuesday that through six games UCLA has had one impressive showing: a 62-27 win at Arizona State. Now it should be pointed out that Virginia and Memphis are much improved and quarterback Brett Hundley went down early in the Texas game. But my concern is more centered on the last two weeks: a home loss as 13-point favorites to Utah and a no-show in last week's blowout loss to Oregon. Add it all up and we're talking about a 1-5 ATS record and a classic case of an overrated football team.

The brings us to this weekend's pointspread. Last week, Cal opened as a pick 'em and was bet up as high as -4.5 (closed -3.5) vs. Washington (who was coming in off a bye). This week, Cal Read more
