College Football Betting: Alabama 3-point chalk vs. Oregon for BCS Championship

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Twitter, Las Vegas' Golden Nugget sportsbook posted Alabama -3 (-120) vs. Oregon should the two teams meet in the BCS National Championship. The Crimson Tide was -10 vs. Notre Dame in last year's tile game (42-14 win). The year before that they were -2.5 vs. LSU (21-0 win). The Ducks were 1-point chalk in their 22-19 BCS title game loss to Auburn in 2010.

College Football Betting: Will Wake Forest's under the total trend continue?

For many teams across the nation, 25% of their season is already complete. Three weeks ago as fall practice sessions ended and teams began preparing for their season opening games, those of us who follow college football routinely had opinions set on all 126 FBS teams. Since teams only play 12 regular season games, the quarter pole has always been a time to proactively adjust to teams if need be or stay firm with initial judgments that were made. In this week’s article I’ll take a look at one team specifically from a totals perspective which has thus far performed differently than what the original outlook may have been.

It’s not that Wake Forest's schemes have turned into something we don’t associate with them. After all, this team has had the exact same on-field style for each of head coach Jim Grobe’s 12 seasons here. The difference right now is the extent to which their game scores have diminished. Through their first three games, Wake Forest totals have opened and closed as some of the lowest we’ve seen each week. To see closing totals of 51, 47.5 and 50 in this day and age can definitely be categorized as lower than average. Read more

College Football Betting: Oregon State not willing to give up on ground attack

Oregon State -11 at San Diego State O/U 54.5

Because of all their injuries along the offensive line, Oregon State has had a very difficult time running the football. Against Hawaii and Utah, the Beavers rushed 61 times but produced only 105 yards. According to offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf despite the team's success throwing the football (1,316 yards, 12 TDs, 1 INT) they aren't going to give up on the run game just yet.


“When we’re not running the ball very well, you’re going to get a lot more coverage looks, tougher to throw the ball, more drop-eight,” offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said. “You’re going to get more guys in coverage taking away those receivers. If you can’t run the ball

College Football Handicapping: Estimated Power Ratings as of 9/18/13

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Feel much better about how these numbers have honed in on the market. Many of last week’s numbers were very close to nailing this week’s openers (or first line moves off an opener). When they didn’t, it was due to a common-sense adjustment from a Saturday result, or an injury to a quarterback. Think we’re mostly there. Not all the way there, particularly in the bottom third where there seems to be more volatility (and less raw confidence from all involved)

If this is your first visit to the site…I’m trying to estimate college football “Power Ratings” as represented by the lines posted in the betting markets. These aren’t my personal opinions of teams. This is my estimate of how “the market” as a composite must be rating the teams based on the lines we’re seeing now and have been seeing recently. I start by creating couplets based on the line for each game, using 3 points of value for home field advantage. Read more

NFL Gambling News: Dallas Cowboys desperate for running game

St. Louis at Dallas -4 O/U 47

Look who wants to "re-commit" to running the football – the Dallas Cowboys, of course! They do have a point with passing plays accounting for 73% of the offense through two games. But it remains a broke record with this team – the focus is always on lack of balance, injuries, offensive line, or Tony Romo rather that winning football games. It's rare the every aspect of any football team works week in and week out but for the Cowboys, the inability to adjust and apply on the fly is the reason for their mediocre ways.


“We have to re-commit to the running game.’’

“DeMarco’s a good football player,’’ Garrett said, noting that the club’s best offensive work over the last few years has included a healthy Murray. “We got to get him more

College Football Handicapping: What to do with bad football teams?

09.17.2013     12:31 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We're through Week 3 of the college football season and for a few teams it's been a struggle. Some of those struggles oddsmakers and bettors spotted well in advance while others weren't as obvious. Let's take a look at some of these teams and decide whether or not they have "bet on" potential moving forward.

Wake Forest (1-2 SU, 0-3 ATS) - For years the Demon Deacons fielded a competitive team with pointspread value under long-time head coach Jim Grobe. But the program has unquestionably deteriorated with records of 5-7, 3-9, 6-7, and 5-7 the last four years. Even with solid turnover margins of +8 and +9 – a staple under Grobe –the last two seasons, Wake looks outmanned and slow compared to the rest of the ACC. They're off to a 1-2 start and once again can't run the football (86.3 ypg) or find consistency in the passing game with senior Tanner Price. This is likely a do-or-die season Grobe and I don't see many more chances for straight up wins on the schedule. This week's price of -3 at Army tells us all we need to know about Wake's place in the betting markets.

Florida International (0-3 SU/ATS) - Pretty Read more

College Football Betting: Syracuse names Hunt starting quarterback

Tulane at Syracuse -15 O/U 54.5

Syracuse is making a change at quarterback with sophomore Terrel Hunt getting the start against Tulane. Senior Drew Allen started the Orange's first three games and was replaced by Hunt during last week's win over Wagner. Note that Allen, who has undoubtedly struggled (2 TDs, 6 INTs),, played against Northwestern and Penn State while Hunt played a half against Wagner (15-for-18, 265 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INT).


"We'll take it one series at a time and one game at a time," Shafer said. "And as long as the production is where we expect it to be, then whoever is getting those snaps will continue to play."

The one about the New York Knicks, copious amounts of coke, and point shaving

If you lived in New York City during the 80's there's a good chance you either used coke or knew someone who did. But what's interesting is that the dude providing you or your acquaintance with recreational drugs may have also been a big sports bettor. The type of drug dealer/sports bettor who supplied the local NBA team with product and “suggestions” on how to get said product at a discounted rate.


“Over . . . the last two months, all three [players] have given . . . tips on when to bet the Knicks to lose. This has occurred seven times and six of the tips were good,” according to FBI files citing two unnamed “sources.”

“So many people say it’s impossible to fix a game because guys are paid so much money,” Tuohy told The Post. “But you can see how easily they can get hooked on some drug, be gambling themselves and get in deep with a bookie.”

College Football Betting Recap: Alabama wins but A&M slips through the backdoor

Submitted from Stat Intelligence

It wasn't exactly the Game of the Century that the endless pre-game hype on CBS and ESPN would have had you believe (there are no Super Bowls in September!). But, Alabama/A&M was plenty entertaining. Let's get to the numbers.

Alabama 49, Texas A&M 42 (+8)

Alabama: 568 yards, 8.6 per-play, 1 turnovers, 50% third downs

TX A&M: 628 yards, 8.8 per-play, 2 turnovers, 63% third downs

The offenses ruled the defenses to such an extreme degree in this one…that Alabama only faced six third down attempts all afternoon…and Texas A&M only eight. Both teams were moving the ball all day long in big bursts. Not exactly classic SEC football. The Aggie turnovers were high impact. One came in the end zone, spiking what was likely a TD drive (nobody had to settle for a field goal all day). The other was returned for a TD.

In that sense…it felt much more like a big time tennis match. Turnovers were service breaks. The Read more
