College Football Betting Preview: Arkansas State Red Wolves at Tennessee Volunteers

Arkansas State at Tennessee
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Tennessee -17.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Tennessee -17 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Tennessee -17.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Tennessee

A Sun Belt versus SEC pairing at Neyland Stadium,one of college football's top venues, pits teams off lopsided season-opening wins. Butch Jones' Tennessee Volunteers mowed over Utah State, 38-7, Sunday, while first-year head coach Blake Anderson and the Arkansas State Red Wolves disposed of FCS opponent Montana State by a 37-10 margin one day earlier.

Attempting to reconstruct a program short on SEC caliber talent following Derek Dooley's brief tenure, Jones, in his second season, has displayed the ability to recruit at a high level and just might bring the Volunteers back near the glory days of the past if given enough time. In its opener against Utah State, Tennessee played a Read more

USC at Stanford
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Stanford -2.5 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Stanford -2.5 O/U 54
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Stanford -5.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: USC

I provided a winning recommendation on USC with last week’s free play and will go back to the well with another play on the Trojans as they travel to Stanford as short underdogs. USC opened its season in a big way by dismantling Fresno State 52-17. They rolled up 701 yards and 37 first downs and quarterback Cody Kessler looked very comfortable in the Steve Sarkisian’s up-tempo offense.

Stanford had an easy time of it last week’s 45-0 romp over UC Davis. My concern here is Kevin Hogan facing this talented USC secondary. Hogan struggled in last season’s 20-17 loss to the Trojans with just 127 yards and two interceptions. Even without starting cornerback Josh Shaw (suspended) I expect Read more

College Football Betting Preview: South Alabama Jaguars at Kent State Golden Flashes

South Alabama at Kent State
Saturday, 11 am PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Kent State pk O/U 52.5
CRIS Current: South Alabama -3 O/U 50.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: South Alabama -1.5
Drew Martin's Recommendation: South Alabama

South Alabama opens its season on the road against Kent State in Dix Stadium. This will be the second game of the season for the Golden Flashes after being on the wrong side of the 17-14 home contest vs. Ohio. Kent’s offense managed only 294 yards (31 yards rushing) of offense and could not take advantage of four Bobcat turnovers. This shouldn’t come as a surprise after KSU lost its two best offensive linemen and third round draft pick running back Dri Archer. Additionally, the Golden Flashes were without their most touted offensive weapon, 250 pound running back Trayion Durham. He is currently listed as questionable; I don’t believe they would hold him Read more

College Football Gambling: South Carolina's defense primed for better showing?

East Carolina at South Carolina -16.5 O/U 63

South Carolina saying all the right things following last week's defensive no-show vs. Texas A&M. While not on the Aggies' level, this week's opponent, East Carolina, hung 55 and 42 on in-state foes North Carolina and NC State, respectively, last season. Virginia Tech, however, held the Pirates to 10 points and 204 yards.


"It was very embarrassing," said sophomore linebacker T.J. Holloman. "All the guys felt embarrassed, as we should. We should feel embarrassed after giving up that many points, setting a school record. But now we just turn that embarrassment into motivation, and keep driving and driving so it doesn't happen again."

"It hurt real bad, because I don't think anybody in the world

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan Wolverines at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Michigan at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame -4.5 O/U 54.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -3.5 O/U 56
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Notre Dame -4
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Over

Michigan has won and covered four of the last five meetings between these two teams, taking control of what had been a very competitive series in recent seasons.   In fact, prior to the Wolverines recent success, the taking the underdog plus the points had been the prevailing theme, winning outright in nine of the previous 12 meetings.   And, of course, with Michigan catching points in South Bend on Saturday, the trends clearly point towards the Wolverines as live underdogs here.

The Wolverines went through an ugly 0-5 SU and ATS run as an underdog heading into last November, but they covered three straight in that role down the stretch last year, finally showing success Read more

College Footbal Betting Preview: Kansas State Wildcats at Iowa State Cyclones

Kansas State at Iowa State
Saturday, 9 am PT - FS1
CRIS Opener:
Kansas State -12.5 O/U 60.5
CRIS Current: Kansas State -12 O/U 57
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Kansas State -10
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Over

Not an ideal start to the season for Iowa State who was slapped at home by defending FCS champion North Dakota State. They also lost premier offensive threat, wide receiver Quenton Bundrage (ACL) for the season. Suspended wide receiver D’avario Montgomery will be back from a one game suspension and they have enough depth at the position to ease the loss. But the health of starting center Tom Farniok, who left last week’s game with a knee injury, should be monitored. Farniok has been the lynchpin this offense the past two seasons and the unit struggles mightily when he’s not on the field. He is expected to play at less than 100% this week and the Cyclones will have their Read more

College Football Gambling: Wisconsin has a quarterback problem

09.02.2014     01:58 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Concerns about Wisconsin's quarterback situation following Saturday's second half meltdown vs. LSU. First-year starter Tanner McEvoy threw for only 50 yards on 8-of-24 passes. It raises the question should the Badgers revert back to last year's vanilla-but-for-the-most-part-effective starter, Joel Stave. Head coach Gary Andersen said both will undoubtedly be used throughout the year. UW plays host to FCS Western Illinois this weekend.

 

“We need two quarterbacks. Sooner or later, you’re going to have them both. Tanner’s the starter today, but Joel’s going to fight like crazy to get some reps and if there’s an opportunity that presents itself for Joel to be able to come in and play, then so be it.”

“Do we need better play (at quarterback)? Absolutely. Nobody’s going to sit there and debate that. We need better play out of the quarterback. We need better play in the throw game, period. There’s some

College Football Gambling News: Saban pleased with Kiffin's first game as OC

09.02.2014     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Alabama racked up 538 yards but settled for four field goals in Saturday's 33-22 win over West Virginia. It was offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin's debut for the Crimson Tide and Nick Saban wants everyone to know he "did a great job."


"You know, the guy is a really good coach now, all right," Saban said. "Y'all need to fess up to that. And most places that don't like him is because he left and they were mad because he left. They weren't mad about anything he did while he was there.  Just do a little research on that."

"Some people have a tremendous amount of knowledge, but you have to be able to articulate it to the players in a way they can understand it and it's simple for them to go out and execute it," Saban said earlier in the month. "Systematically, Lane does that with the players he coaches and with the entire offense, which I think is really, really important."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NFC East Reg Flags

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bettors react strongly to the NFL Preseason.  First string offenses that look good in August tend to attract betting market support.  The markets are much less reactive to defensive success or failure compared to offensive production.  And bettors tend to largely ignore coaching gameplans; unable to differentiate between coaches who were aggressively trying to set a tone for winning or whether their primary focus was on roster evaluation and personnel decisions.

The two primary areas where preseason results affect the betting markets are adjusting Week 1 numbers and moving the juice on season over/under win totals.  Some of these line moves are absolutely warranted; others are based on erroneous reactions to essentially meaningless football games.

I’m not willing to write off a team’s regular season chances based solely on preseason struggles.  But ignoring those struggles completely is the moral equivalent of sticking your head in the sand. A repeated inability to execute the game plan in August often carries over into September.

One NFL Division had more than their fair share of struggles in August, on at least one Read more
