NFL Handicapping: Drive Point Averages Week 14

12.05.2013     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Here are per-game Drive Point averages on offense and defense for all 32 teams…arranged in schedule rotation order. If you’re new to the website, Drive Points are only those scored on drives of 60 yards or more. Special teams and defensive scoring isn’t counted, nor are “cheap” points scored off field position. The goal is to get a clean a read as possible on “pure” offense and defense in terms of driving the field for points, and preventing the opposition from doing so.

Strength of schedule rankings from Sagarin at USA Today and Football Outsiders are in the first parenthesis (in that order) to provide some extra context for you, followed by this season’s turnover differential in the second parenthesis…

Thursday

Houston: 10.8 on offense, 13.5 on defense (6-15) (-12 turnovers)

Jacksonville: 6.2 on offense, 16.7 on defense (2-10) (-4 turnovers)

(Houston is 10.1 and 13.2 in the Read more

College Football Gambling Trends: Favorites are 9-2 SU in SEC Championship

12.05.2013     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly
Quick look at the historical betting results of the SEC Championship. Favorites have fared well at 9-2 straight up but they are only 6-5 against the spread. Auburn is currently a 2-point favorite over Missouri. This is only the second time since 2002 the title game has been lined at less than a field goal.

Banks say no to New Jersey online gambling transactions

12.05.2013     07:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New Jersey is in its second week of online gambling and as expected there are still a slew of issues. Only 25% of gamblers trying to use TropicanaCasino.com have been verified due to glitches in the system. Then there is the problem of loading up money into an account. American Express and PayPal are reportedly not allowing any sort of gambling transactions.


“I would say a quarter are getting on,” Callender said yesterday, noting there’s a positive side to that: “We don’t have a situation where people who are outside the state are getting on.”












College Basketball Handicapping: Zone defense becoming a thing

12.05.2013     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to one study, college basketball are playing zone at a higher rate this season. One theory behind that is teams are looking to avoid picking up perimeter fouls or hiding players in foul trouble. It also could have to do with how many mismatches there are during non-conference play. It isn't however slowing down the pace of games. Last season only two teams (BYU and Northwestern State) averaged less than 15 seconds per offensive possession. This year 20 teams can lay claim to that including Michigan State, Purdue, and UCLA.

NFL Gambling Preview: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints

Carolina at New Orleans
Sunday, 5:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
New Orleans -3.5 O/U 44.5
CRIS Current: New Orleans -3 (-120) O/U 45.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New Orleans -3.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Use Carolina in 6-pt teaser

This should be a terrific Sunday Night Football showcase as the Panthers and Saints battle with 1st place in the NFC South on the line.

New Orleans is clearly not a team I like betting against at home at a short price particularly off a brutal performance like they suffered in Seattle. The Saints are 6-0 SU, 5-0-1 ATS at the Superdome however only one of those wins (San Francisco) came against a team of the Panthers’ caliber. The Saints only managed to beat the 49ers 23-20 on a last second FG as they didn’t sniff a lead by more than a touchdown throughout that entire game.

Carolina is 8-0 SU, 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games – the single hottest team in Read more

NBA Gambling: Let's all gather 'round and rewatch Toronto's collapse vs. Golden State

12.04.2013     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
If you had a bet on Toronto last night this will probably sting a little. The Raptors jumped out to a 36-19 lead over the Warriors and led by that same margin at halftime with GS a 9-point favorite in the second half (adjusted +8). In the third quarter, Toronto led by as much as 27 and heading into the fourth remained up 88-70. Then the freakin’ wheels came off. The progression of Pinnacle's live wagering tells all you need to know about the total meltdown that took place. Golden State was at its peak +16, followed by +13.5, +12, +8, +3.5, -2.5, and finally -9. All told, the Warriors outscored the Raptors 42-15 in the fourth to not only win the game but also cover the closing game number of -8!

College Basketball Handicapping: Florida down to six healthy scholarship players

12.03.2013     02:23 PM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Florida senior PG Scottie Wilbekin is out indefinitely with a high ankle sprain suffered in last night's buzzer-beating loss at UConn. With freshman PG Kasey Hill out for at least another two weeks, the Gators have only six healthy scholarship players and zero point guards. Obviously, that's not good with Kansas on deck a week from today at the O-Dome and then a date with Memphis (which just beat Oklahoma State) at Madison Square Garden.

Damontre Harris remains suspended and McDonald's All-American Chris Walker's status is still uncertain due to eligibility issues. UF did beat a pretty decent Middle Tennessee team by 20 without Wilbekin and Hill, as Michael Frazier II logged 36 minutes at the point. But Frazier isn't a natural PG, nor is Rutgers transfer Eli Carter (who remains out of shape due to a leg injury from last year that killed his off-season).

All that said, Hill will definitely be back before SEC play starts and I would think Wilbekin will be back by mid-to-late January in a worst-case scenario, probably sooner. So Read more

NFL Gambling: San Francisco offensive line hit with injuries

12.02.2013     12:57 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After starting 26 consecutive games, San Francisco's offensive line unit has run across a couple of key injuries. Left tackle Joe Staley hurt his knee against St. Louis is reportedly going to be out for a "couple of games." Left guard Mike Iupati also has a knee injury and missed the last two games. He's generously listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Seattle. Without the two all-pro linemen, the 49ers ran for 83 yards (2.8 ypc) and allowed four sacks against the Rams.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Betting on Bad NFL Teams Down the Stretch

12.02.2013     08:02 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
I’ve spent the last two weeks breaking down playoff contenders in both the AFC and NFC. But the playoffs are still a month away. There are still four more regular season games to be played for every team in the NFL; a full quarter of the season. That’s why I’m taking a hard look in the opposite direction this week; breaking down the bottom feeders.

Bottom feeders in December are a mixed breed. Some squads tank; done with their season. Other bottom feeders play their best ball down the stretch, building momentum for next year.

Look at last year for some prime examples. The Lions went 0-5 SU, 1-4 ATS in five December games a season ago; the lone pointspread cover coming by a single point in their meaningless season finale defeat. Philly went 1-4 SU at the tail end of the Andy Reid era, and got blown out in each of their final three games, losing by a combined nine touchdowns in those contests. Arizona, Buffalo, the New York Jets, Cleveland, Jacksonville and Kansas City – all teams that were considered ‘bottom feeders’ at this time last year – each finished with a losing SU and ATS mark in their five December Read more
