NFL Gambling Preview: Seattle Seahawks at San Diego Chargers

09.10.2014     02:25 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seattle at San Diego
Sunday, 1 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Seattle -5 O/U 44.5
CRIS Current: Seattle -6 O/U 44
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Seattle -5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Seattle

The recent history of defending Super Bowl Champions has not been a good one.  No team since the New England Patriots following their 2003 Super Bowl title has even won a single playoff game the following season. The last two defending champs – the Giants and Ravens – failed to make the playoffs the year after their title.

But Seattle is a different animal compared to recent Super Bowl champs.  Three things make the Seahawks different.  First, their coaching staff didn’t get raided this past offseason, as they return both coordinators.  The historical norm is that Super Bowl winning teams tend to lose some of their coaching talent in the offseason, but there’s full continuity for the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Tennessee Volunteers at Oklahoma Sooners

Tennessee at Oklahoma
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Oklahoma -20 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -20.5 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oklahoma -17
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Oklahoma

Not going to be many good opportunities to bet Oklahoma this season with heavy preseason expectations and two blowout wins in Weeks 1 and 2. The Sooners seems to be at their best from a betting perspective after a few losses and disinterest from the betting markets. However, in this weekend's matchup against Tennessee, the Sooners have a lot of sizeable advantages.

In terms of play in the trenches, this is a total mismatch. Tennessee entered the season with one of the youngest offensive lines in the country. It showed against Utah State and Arkansas State has the Vols had difficulty running the football. Against the Aggies, UT managed only 110 yards on 2.82 ypc. Against the Red Wolves, it was Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks at Texas Tech Red Raiders

Arkansas at Texas Tech
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Texas Tech -1 O/U 66
CRIS Current: Texas Tech -2.5 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Texas Tech -4.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: See analysis

In Week 1 against Central Arkansas, the Texas Red Raiders committed 15 penalties, threw two interceptions, and fumbled twice (recovered both). First game jitters, right? Wrong. In Week 2, despite out-gaining UTEP by over 100 yards and averaging over 8.0 ypc, TTU need a touchdown with less than three minutes to go to eek out a victory. One of the reasons for the margin not being three touchdowns like the box score indicated was Tech's 10 penalties for 90 yards. Bottom line is all of those "controllable" statistics that killed this team last season (-14 TO margin, 75.2 ypg of penalties) haven't left (-3 TO margin, 102.0 ypg of penalties). When you can't get out of your own way like Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Rays at New York Yankees

Tampa Bay (Archer) at NY Yankees (Kuroda) -130 O/U 7
Recommendation: New York


The NY Yankees are in a must win situation.  In fact they are in 21 must win situations to end their season.  Monday was their last day of rest before attempting to make one last push towards the postseason.  Five games back of Seattle for the second wild card spot seems doable if the Yankees can get hot, but they will also have to rely on a few teams to play .500 baseball.  "I'll never give up on them; it's just not my personality,'' Girardi said.  "They just have to continue to grind it out, try to get better every day."  The good news for the Yankees is they trot out Hiroki Kuroda to the mound tonight against the Rays.  Kuroda has been the Yankees most consistent pitcher since the All-Star break.  Kuroda won his last start out against the Rays in a 4-2 win at Tropicana Field on August 17th.  Yankee bats are excited to see Tampa starter Chris Read more

College Football Handicapping: Golden Nugget GOY vs. CRIS - Week 3

09.08.2014     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
We've been doing this exercise for years as we compare Golden Nugget's Game of the Year lines vs. CRIS's current lines. It's a great tool to spot changes in perception from oddsmakers and the betting markets. The biggest discrepancy for this week is the Georgia-South Carolina game. During the summer, the Gamecocks were 3-point home favorites but after getting demolished by Texas A&M and struggling at times vs. East Carolina, USC opened as a 5-point home underdog UG was bet to -6.5 (-7 at BetOnline).

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Under- and over-reacting to early season football results

09.08.2014     07:50 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I probably heard the same expression 20 times last week: ‘Don’t overreact to Week 1 results.’   It’s one of those handicapping mantras that we hear every year right around this time – the very beginning of football season. 

In basketball or baseball there’s no week off between the first two games and the early season betting markets don’t react intensely off a single poor performance.  But for football – both NFL and college – the prevailing conventional wisdom is that Week 1 results are a thing to take with a grain of salt.

The concept certainly makes sense.  Coaches – especially college football coaches – will tell you that they expect their biggest improvement between Week 1 and Week 2.  Without the benefit of preseason games or even scrimmages against opposing squads, teams often ‘work out the kinks’ and ‘get up to game speed’ in their initial contest.  The team you expected to see this year (at least for bettors who do some homework and have opinions coming into the campaign) might not be the team you saw in Week 1, but there’s Read more
