College Football Betting: How to approach against the spread outliers

10.28.2014     08:42 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The college football betting markets are usually pretty good at eventually making adjustments on teams who over- or underachieve against the spread. At the end of the season, a majority of the college football landscape is within two games of .500 against the spread. There are obviously exceptions to that rule but being able to spot change with some of the current "outliers" can lead to profits. Let's take a look at some of them and decipher whether or not their ATS results will differ the remainder of the campaign.

Underachievers
Florida State (1-6 ATS)
- Because of last year's success, media coverage, and undefeated record, there hasn't been much of any pointspread adjustment on the Seminoles since the start of the regular season (the Golden Nugget GOY lines had them priced WAY too high). As a result, there remains a strong anti-FSU sediment in the markets. They opened -7 at Louisville for Thursday and were immediately bet down to as low as -4.

SMU (1-6 ATS) - In order to be a successful bettor, it's important to keep a "no team is off limits" mindset. It's difficult however with truly bottom feeder Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 10 early line moves

10.27.2014     01:37 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Quick look at some of the early moves in the Week 10 college football betting markets.

Florida State at Louisville
CRIS Opener: Florida State -7
CRIS Current: Florida State -4
Comment: Cardinals currently boast nation's top total defense. Seminoles (1-6 ATS) come in off of a bye week.

Boston College at Virginia Tech
CRIS Opener: Virginia Tech -5
CRIS Current: Virginia Tech -3
Comment: Market can't get enough of betting against the Hokies. Last week's massive move from -3 to +3 proved to be right as Tech was embarrassed at home against Miami.

North Carolina at Miami (FL)
CRIS Opener: Miami -11
CRIS Current: Miami -16
Comment: Markets not buying another Tar Heels second half run (6-1 SU/ATS L7 2013) following wins over Georgia Tech and Virginia.

BYU at MTSU
CRIS Opener: BYU -7
CRIS Current: BYU -5
Comment: Cougars’ season all but over after four straight losses; the last of which by 25 at Boise State. Great spot for Blue Raiders with bye weeks bookending a “big name” foe.

USC at Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Previewing the NBA Season O/U Wins market

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Halloween week and the brand spankin’ new NBA season is upon us.  Some things have changed dramatically, most notably Lebron leaving Miami for a return trip to Cleveland.  That sets the books up for a real beating if the Cavs win the title next June since the Cavs opened as high as 60:1 before their enormous talent upgrade. 

Other things remain exactly the same, like the fact that the West is much, much stronger than the East, just as it has been since the Bulls run of dominance with Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen ended 17 years ago.  Let’s take a look at the upcoming NBA season from a betting perspective.

Other than the Cavs, many of the top contenders for the title remain the same.  The Spurs, Clippers, Thunder and Bulls are the only other teams besides Cleveland to be priced at less than 10:1 to win the title next June; all elite teams from last year. 

The top two teams in the East from 2013-24 – Miami and Indiana – both took major offseason hits, with the Heat losing LeBron and the Pacers losing Lance Stephenson to free agency and Paul George to a broken leg.  Oklahoma City, Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils at Washington Huskies

Arizona State at Washington
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -3.5 O/U 62.5
CRIS Current: Arizona Sate -3.5 O/U 62
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Arizona State -2
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Arizona State

As of this writing it is still unclear whether Washington QB Cyler Miles (concussion) will be available for this contest. Through Wednesday practice, backup redshirt freshman Troy Williams had taken all the first team snaps and this would be his first ever college start (he went 5-of-10, for 37 yards last week in relief of Miles). In addition, the Huskies’ offensive line and defensive backfield have struggled to date and they’ll face an Arizona State team which is 8-0 against them L8T and will have their starting QB Taylor Kelly back from injury. At 1-2 in Pac-12 play, these are the home games inside the conference that new head coach Chris Petersen was hired to Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Ole Miss Rebels at LSU Tigers

Mississippi at LSU
Saturday, 4:15 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi -3 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Mississippi -3.5 O/U 45
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Mississippi -2
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Under

Some have questioned Hugh Freeze's recruiting methods. Few, however, should question his on-the-field results in just his third season at the helm of the University of Mississippi football team.

In one of the biggest games in school history, the third-ranked Rebels (7-0 on the season) travel to Baton Rouge where they will battle the young and improving LSU Tigers (6-2) Saturday night.

The matchup of SEC West titans features two of the best defenses in the nation. The Rebels, who boast speed and quickness throughout its lineup, lead the NCAA in scoring defense at 10.6 points per game, while the Tigers are not far behind, ranking eighth in the country at just 17 points per Read more

College Football Betting: Vanderbilt starts fourth different quarterback

Vanderbilt at Missouri -21 O/U 45

Eight games into the season and Vanderbilt is on its fourth different starting quarterback. Redshirt frosh Johnny McCrary will get the nod vs. Missouri. The total was bet down from 52.5 to as low as 45.


"Johnny will probably be the guy to get the start this week," Mason said. "We'll put that out of the way before we speculate on who's doing what, when, where. I thought Johnny had a good Sunday [practice], and Wade is right there. They are going to work hard for us until our leader gets back."

NFL Gambling Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals

Baltimore at Cincinnati
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -2.5 O/U 46
CRIS Current: Cincinnati pk O/U 45.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Cincinnati -1.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Baltimore

My clients and I cashed a winning Big Ticket bet supporting the Bengals in Week 1 on the road at Baltimore.  Cinci dominated that game early, but settled for five first half field goals.  After halftime, the Ravens scored 17 unanswered to take the lead.  But a 77 yard bomb from Andy Dalton to AJ Green in the final minutes allowed the Bengals to escape with a victory on Baltimore’s home field; their first road win over the Ravens since 2009.

But the Bengals team that we saw on opening day is not the same Bengals team that Marvin Lewis is fielding right now.  AJ Green has a bad toe, unable to suit up in their last two ballgames.  TE Tyler Eifert is out as well.  That duo Read more

College Football Handicapping: Tennessee's youth keeping offense grounded

10.21.2014     01:40 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Alabama -17 at Tennessee

The youthfulness of Tennessee's offensive line has really started impact the team's production now that conference play has started. Through three SEC games, the Vols have allowed 16 sacks and are averaging less than four yards per play (275 ypg). To make matters worse, quarterback Justin Worley is dealing with a shoulder injury.


"I really didn't know what to expect (this season) because none of us really had that much playing time besides Marcus Jackson, but it's a learning experience," junior center Mack Crowder said after the loss to Ole Miss. "We're getting better every week. It's definitely a challenge that I'm excited to continue to take on."
