NBA Handicapper Free Play: San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets

San Antonio -5 at Denver O/U 205
Recommendation: San Antonio


On Friday’s Sportsmemo podcast, I warned listeners that the Spurs were a tad bit ‘fat and happy’ heading into their matchup with the Lakers, based on their performance without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard two nights earlier when they blew out the Knicks.  And the Spurs came out as flat as a pancake against the Lakers, a performance that head coach Greg Popovich called ‘pitiful’ following the game.  "They had an edge, they were aggressive on both ends of the floor, they executed well and they definitely wanted the game more than we did. It seemed more important to them than to us. I thought our performance was pitiful."

Tim Duncan wasn’t very pleased either after losing the OT decision in SU fashion as 12.5 point favorites: “If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves.”  Manu Ginobili had similar sentiments: “It is frustrating. It's disappointing. Looks like we need to be challenged badly to get the best out of our Read more

College Football Betting Alert: Markets fade Spurrier, Gamecocks

12.11.2014     08:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's not too often you see anti-SEC money during the bowl season. Maybe and half point here or there if bettors sense conference affiliation inflation but for the most part the SEC is regarded as "bet on" in December and January. That however hasn't been the case for the Independence Bowl with Miami taking all of the early money for its matchup vs. South Carolina. The game opened pick 'em with the Hurricanes now -3 at most offshore sportsbooks (-3.5ev at CRIS). After losing three straight bowl games from 2008-10, the Gamecocks have won three straight. Likely some concerns though as to how much prep and effort will come from the SC side after very high preseason expectations and a dismal 6-6 (3-5 SEC) showing. That at Spurrier playing 36 holes a day.

College Football Handicapping: Arkansas seeks better run game vs. Texas

12.11.2014     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Arkansas is hoping the time off leading up to its Texas Bowl matchup vs. Texas will result in more success running the football. After racking up over 700 yards against Texas Tech and Texas A&M, the Razorbacks averaged only 131 ypg (3.12 ypc) their last six SEC contests. Texas' rushing defense allowed 3.9 ypc on the season.


"We need to get back to the basics of what we do," Cook said. "That's being physical, pounding the rock. That's soothing we can do and something we like to do and something we will focus on and get after it."

NFL Betting News: Johnny Football gets the call vs. Cincinnati

12.09.2014     01:57 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the midst of trying to secure their first playoff berth since 2002, the Cleveland Browns have decided to play a little quarterback music chairs. A few weeks back, off of a loss, they considered a move to Johnny Manziel but decided against it. Following last week's loss to Indianapolis -- a game in which Brian Hoyer failed to hit 50% of his pass and threw two picks -- the team will now give Manziel a shot. He'll get the starting nod in Sunday's must-win vs. Cincinnati. The betting market's reaction? Crickets. Little to no movement following the accouncement.


"This decision is really not about Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel, it is about the Cleveland Browns. We are always going to make decisions that we feel are in the best interest of the team," Pettine said in a statement. "Brian has done everything that has been asked of him and he has done so as a true professional. ... We are trying to get the offense to perform at a higher level. Johnny has worked very hard to earn this opportunity and it will be very

College Basketball Betting Free Play: IUPUI Jaguars at Xavier Musketeers

IUPUI at Xavier -25.5 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


To say that Xavier has fallen in love with offense would be an understatement. The Musketeers are averaging over 85 ppg despite playing only one (Northern Arizona) truly lower level squad. They play their weakest opponent to date this evening with IUPUI coming to town. The Jaguars have at times played respectable with an overtime loss to Indiana State and three-point loss to Georgia State. They were also blown out however against Purdue and Evansville. It is the Purdue game that caught my attention. In the first half, there was a lot of pace and a lot of points with the Boilermakers leading 48-38. Matt Painter probably wasn't all too excited about allowing nearly 40 in a half on their home court as IUPUI could manage only 19 points in the second half. Xavier hasn't shown the ability to completely stifle a team. Quotes from players and coaches recognize that the offense-first mentality won't cut it in Big East play but eight games into the season, it is clear that Xavier doesn't have much of a defensive identity. An unlike Purdue, Xavier hasn't shown any signs of backing off late. In blowout home Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bowl season has history of controversy

12.08.2014     08:08 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There was always going to be controversy.  The system is designed to produce controversy or in 21st century parlance, to generate buzz.  And from the beginning, the college football playoffs were fraught with difficult decisions about which schools deserved to play for the title, and which ones would be on the outside of the process, looking in.

1998 was the beginning of the BCS Bowl era.  The 1998 Fiesta Bowl was the first official national title game; coming on the heels of the split national title between Michigan and Nebraska the previous season.  And while there wasn’t much controversy involving the two teams that played for the title (Tennessee and Florida State), the system itself was under fire from the get-go.  One loss Kansas State finished third in the final BCS standings, but the Wildcats were passed over by all the BCS Bowls, relegated to an Alamo Bowl matchup against Purdue.  To the surprise of no one, the system for choosing the BCS Bowl teams was tweaked the following year.

In 1999, Kansas State finished sixth in the BCS standings, yet they were passed over again.  Michigan got a BCS bowl bid over Michigan Read more

College Football Gambling: Sportsbooks post lines on semifinal playoff matchups

12.08.2014     07:11 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The college football four-team playoff is set with top seed Alabama facing fourth seed Ohio State in New Orleans and second seed Oregon taking on third seed Florida State in Pasadena. Once the matchups were announced, various offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks were quick to post lines. Cantor was one of the first with Alabama -9.5 O/U 56.5 and Oregon -9 O/U 70. CRIS's openers were very similar with Alabama -9.5 O/U 58 and Oregon -8 O/U 71. The only significant move thus far has been on the Crimson Tide with the line now -10 across the board offshore. It will mark the first time since September 2011 that Florida State will play as an underdog.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Miami Heat at Memphis Grizzlies

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami at Memphis -8 O/U 190.5
Recommendation: Memphis


The Heat haven’t been able to stay healthy enough to develop much on-court chemistry in the post-LeBron era, with Dwyane Wade bouncing in and out of the lineup and Luol Deng likely to sit once again tonight.  Miami hasn’t beaten a foe that’s anywhere near the .500 mark since the second week of November and I’m not expecting them to break that streak here.   Their only wins in the last three weeks have come against bottom feeders: the Knicks, Bobcats and Magic, all lottery bound foes.  And when the Heat lose, they aren’t coming close, showing plenty of fourth quarter quit.  Each of Miami’s last five losses has come by a double digit margin.

Memphis is a bet-on team today after suffering their first back-to-back losses of the season against Houston and San Antonio in their last two games.  The Grizz continue to  search for the respect that has consistently eluded them in recent seasons when they’ve been an afterthought upstart on the national stage, not a serious title contender.  Center Marc Gasol: Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Missouri Tigers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide

Missouri vs. Alabama
Saturday, 1 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -14 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Alabama -15 O/U 49
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -11.5
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Missouri

On most of the previous 365 days, the Alabama Crimson Tide had probably heard at least one person reference the improbable "Pick 6," 109-yard missed field goal return by Auburn's Chris Davis which abruptly halted their 2013 national title hopes.

Last weekend, the Tide rallied from a 12-point, second-half deficit to exorcise those demons of the past, scoring a record-setting 55-44 victory over bitter rival Auburn in their regular season finale.

The victory kept Alabama's goal of another national championship in clear focus, but there's one order of business remaining before the Crimson Tide can punch its ticket as one of the entries in college football's inaugural version of the Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Kentucky comfortable playing ugly basketball

12.05.2014     10:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The always candid John Calipari talks about the ugly nature of Kentucky's games thus far. They've gone under the total in six of seven games but note that tonight's total vs. Texas is nearly 10 points lower than any total this season.


“You could do the old stuff that they used do at Loyola, you stick one guy down the other end and then they still hold the ball, put two guys down the other end, say, shoot it,” Calipari joked. “But I like this. It makes us grind it out. It makes us have to stay in a stance 30 seconds, it makes us have to put more pressure. You can't let them hold the ball 35 seconds and get an easy shot at the end of a clock. Then what happens, if they're holding it and they take a tough shot, is that you run it right down at them, they start wearing down.

“I just say, hey, if that's how you want to play, that's fine,” Calipari said. “We're trying to be more playmakers off the ball, trying to get them to do that. In other words, deflect the ball from the guy you're
