NFL Gambling Preview: San Diego Chargers at Washington Redskins

San Diego at Washington
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Washington pk O/U 51
CRIS Current: Washington pk O/U 50
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Washington -1.5
Erin Rynning's Recommendation: San Diego

The San Diego Chargers come in off their bye week with a renewed energy for their franchise after a strong 4-3 start.  New head coach Mike McCoy has done a brilliant job over the first half of the season – a significant upgrade in play from the latter stages of the Norv Turner era.  McCoy has especially done wonders in resurrecting quarterback Philip Rivers with his quick passing attack.  Rivers owns a sweet 15-5 TD-INT ratio, while completing 74% of his passes.  Importantly, the turnovers and sacks have dissipated.  Tight end Antonio Gates is healthy and a difference maker once again as McCoy has featured him underneath for plenty of easy yards.  The clincher for the Chargers’ Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Miami (FL) Hurricanes at Florida State Seminoles

Miami (FL) at Florida State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -21 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Florida State -21 O/U 61.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -15.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Miami

Extremely high number shows how far Florida State has jumped in oddsmakers’ and bettors’ eyes since October 19th (just 13 days ago) when they closed a short -4.5 at then undefeated Clemson. Maybe an even better comparison is the fact that at home in Tallahassee the week before (just 20 days ago) FSU was only -17.5 against Maryland. The Seminoles’ 51-14 shellacking of Clemson followed by last week’s 49-17 destruction of North Carolina State has the nation talking Florida State as a legitimate BCS Championship threat. The lower side of this game’s equation is how underwhelming Miami has been in its last three games. Since marching into Chapel Hill as a Read more

Las Vegas casinos hope for the best when it comes to collecting debt

Interesting article in the Las Vegas Sun about how casinos deal with gambling debts from high rollers.


John Kempf, a casino industry analyst with RBC Capital Markets, says casino companies tend to set higher allowances for debt more because they are depending on a few individuals to pay up. In some cases, a single customer might make up a quarter or more of a casino company's outstanding debt.

NFL Gambling Preview: Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots

Pittsburgh at New England
Sunday, 1:25 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
New England -7 O/U 43
CRIS Current: New England -6 O/U 43
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New England -8
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Pittsburgh

In years past this would have likely been the marquee game of the week with the success these two franchises have had. In fact, of the last ten AFC championship games, nine have featured Pittsburgh, New England or both.

This year, they are both trying to rebuild and do not resemble the high powered teams the NFL is used to seeing. New England has somehow managed to win six of its eight games with Tom Brady having his worst season ever thanks mostly to a lack of experienced weapons. The Steelers meanwhile have struggled to a 2-5 mark and have had trouble on both sides of the ball, with their trademark defense being the biggest culprit, especially against the run.

Steelers’ coach Mike Tomlin Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers

Atlanta at Carolina
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Carolina -7.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Carolina -7 (-120) O/U 44.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Carolina -4.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Carolina

Things have come off the rails for the Atlanta Falcons. They are 2-5 and have lost four of their last five games – the lone win against a woeful Tampa Bay Bucs squad 31-23 in a game they were outgained by 46 yards. Atlanta has cluster injuries at wide receiver with Julio Jones on IR and lost for the season and Roddy White questionable for this week with a hamstring injury. The Falcons have not been able to run the football because of those injuries and thus haven’t been able to score on a consistent basis. Atlanta had just 27 rushing yards on 14 carries last week in their 27-13 loss to Arizona. Matt Ryan tossed 4 INTs and is clearly affected by the lack of his top playmakers in the passing game. The Atlanta Read more

College Football Handicapping: Cold temps expected for Arizona State-Washington State

Arizona State -12 at Washington State O/U 71

A couple of key points/stats regarding tonight's Arizona State-Washington State matchup courtesy of the Yakima Herald. For starters, it is expected to cool off considerably by this evening – game time temps in the high 30's and damp following rain throughout the day. Second, ASU doesn't have a strong track record in the Pacific Northwest – no road wins since 2010 and a 2-10 record outside of Arizona in November and December during that span.


“We never worry about that,” ASU coach Todd Graham said. “It’s part of the game. Obviously you’ve got to be prepared for anything but it doesn’t affect us. We’re a run, play-action pass football team and it hasn’t affected us. We’re not worried about it a

College Football Betting Preview: North Carolina Tar Heels at NC State Wolfpack

North Carolina at NC State
Saturday, 9:30 am PT - ESPN Game Plan
CRIS Opener:
North Carolina -3 O/U 55
CRIS Current: North Carolina -4 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: North Carolina -6.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: NC State

There aren't very many statistics that I can use to make a case for supporting NC State. The Wolfpack are 0-4 in ACC play and own non-conference wins over Louisiana Tech, Richmond (by 2), and Central Michigan. North Carolina meanwhile has battled the likes of South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Miami and while coming up on the short of end of it in those three games, the Tar Heels have shown to be at least capable. But that doesn't mean they are deserving of laying over a field goal on the road in a rivalry game as NC State should be primed for its best showing of the season.

NC State was dealt some bad cards when starting quarterback Brandon Mitchell went Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 10 Injury Report

10.30.2013     11:18 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For Thursday’s AAC matchup vs. South Florida, Houston RB Ryan Jackson is ‘questionable’ after possibly sustaining a concussion in last week’s 49-14 win at Rutgers. Jackson has rushed 95 times for a team-high 477 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.0 yards per carry.

USC is hoping to get star WR Marquise Lee (knee) back for Friday’s game at Oregon State. Lee missed last week’s win over Utah and is ‘questionable’ against the Beavers. The Trojans will be without starting TE Randall Telfer and the laundry list of defensive injuries continues to grow. DE Morgan Breslin, who had a team-high 13 sacks in 2012, remains ‘out’ with a hip injury. Starting LB Lamar Dawson was recently lost to a season-ending injury along with reserve safety Gerald Bowman. Starting cornerback Anthony Brown (arm) is also ‘out’ at OSU.

Mike Riley’s team has plenty of its own injury concerns. On the last play of Oregon State’s 20-12 home loss to Stanford last week, WR Kevin Cummings was lost for the season with a broken wrist. Cummings had 23 receptions for 254 yards and two TDs during his senior Read more

College Football Gambling: NC State primed for better offense vs. North Carolina

North Carolina -3.5 at NC State O/U 57

It was a difficult spot for NC State quarterback Brandon Mitchell – miss five games and return for a road tilt at Florida State. Mitchell finished 17-of-33 for 128 yards and two interceptions but the Wolf Pack are confident the offense will produce better results this week at home against rival North Carolina. We tend to agree considering there is a 139 ypg of total defense difference between the Seminoles and Tar Heels.


"It makes it difficult for us, too," Doeren said. "That was kind of my point to the coaching staff, going into our bye week: now that we have (Mitchell) back, let's get better for six weeks at what we want to be. And hopefully we'll be able to do that."

"It's caused a little bit of problem but that's because we've played with two different

College Football Betting: Miami priced as big underdog at Florida State

Miami (FL) at Florida State -21.5

Miami responds to being over a three touchdown underdog to Florida State. The Hurricanes were 21-point home underdogs in last year's meeting; FSU won 33-20. Earlier this summer, the Golden Nugget GOY lines had the Seminoles as 8-point road chalk.


“When it comes to that, that’s out of our control. There’s nothing we can do about that, us being the underdogs by however many points or us being the underdogs period,” Miami running back Duke Johnson said. “The only thing we can do is go out there and play the game the way the coaches want us to play it and everything else will take care of itself. It doesn’t really matter whether someone respects us or not. We don’t care.
