College Football Betting Preview: UCLA Bruins at Nebraska Cornhuskers

09.11.2013     02:46 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCLA at Nebraska
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -4 O/U 68
CRIS Current: Nebraska -4.5 O/U 70
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Nebraska -1.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Over

With the nature of college football these days and the endless number of potent offenses in existence, sometimes you can’t shy away from betting a game over the total even when dealing with a total of 70 like we have with the UCLA Bruins and Nebraska Cornhuskers. This game has shootout written all over it when we account for the offensive weapons and defensive deficiencies of both squads.

UCLA has the exact type of offense, led by dual-threat quarterback Brett Hundley, that can cause Nebraska’s suspect defense fits. Hundley had an impressive performance in the Bruins opener against Nevada throwing for a pair of touchdowns and rushing for a pair in their 58-20 blowout win over Nevada. UCLA racked up Read more

College Football Handicapping: Estimated Market Power Ratings Week 3

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

I think we’re getting closer to capturing the market. Not quite there yet. There were fewer head scratchers this week when comparing the transitions from last week.

It may be a mess for awhile in the 45-65 range because of volatility. A 55 may play like a 48 against quality but a 57 against other mid-50 teams. College sports are always messy because of the sheer volume of teams, and the fact that kids are inconsistent from week to week.

If you’re new to the site, these aren’t my “personal” ratings for all the teams. I’m not following college football nearly closely enough to have any real sense of probably the bottom 80 yet. This is my guess at how the market has the teams rated. I create “couplets” each week that match the Vegas spread (allotting 3 points for home field advantage), then I try to figure out where that couplet goes within the big scale. Over a few weeks, it’s not hard to hone in on a fairly good Read more

College Football Gambling: Middle Tennessee adjusts defensive scheme

09.11.2013     07:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Due to a slew of injuries at defensive tackle, Middle Tennessee State was forced to switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense during last week's 40-20 loss at North Carolina. The overall results don't look that impressive (UNC put up 511 yards) but the Blue Raiders did force two turnovers and held the Tar Heels to a respectable 134 yards on 3.3 ypc on the ground. According to the coaching staff, the switch allows the team to put more speed on the field which isn't a bad idea against teams some of the smaller spread teams of C-USA.


“We were a high percentage of 3-4 last week. It just depends on what’s making plays and what’s being successful,” Nix said. “The unfortunate thing for us is that we have had some injuries. Sometimes personnel dictates what you play out of.”

“In a 3-4, we are trying to utilize our speed and play with three down linemen and four linebackers, and that gives us more athletic guys on the field,” Nix said.

“It gives us a chance to do some

NFL Handicapping: Kelly wants Eagles to play faster

09.11.2013     06:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, the offense was slow during Monday night's win over Washington. In the first half, Philadelphia ran a staggering 53 plays (a snap every 22.5 seconds) before slowing down with a lead after the break. The betting markets are buying into Kelly's wishes: The total for Sunday's game vs. San Diego went from 51.5 to as high as 55. Two telling quotes from Kelly and his quarterback Michael Vick. Kelly says the offense needs to go faster whereas Vick flat out said it was going to be a "long season" – not sure if he means the ups and downs of adjusting to Kelly's style or that he's mentally prepared to be on injured reserve by Week 4.


"I've never been a part of anything like this," Michael Vick said, via TheMMQB.com. "When the first quarter was over, I thought we were about to go into halftime. Unreal. The only thing I could tell myself was, 'It's going to be a long season.'"

"I felt like it was slow, to be honest with you,"

NFL Betting News and Notes - Week 1

Cause for concern for the defending champs
Most people knew there would be an adjustment period for the Baltimore Ravens after many changes during the offseason but the holes were very much evident following their humbling 49-27 season opening loss in Denver. The Ravens offense had a solid first half but simply died from the moment that both starting right tackle Michael Oher and receiver Jacoby Jones left the game with injuries. Oher’s injury isn’t serious but Jones will be sidelined for approximately 4-6 weeks with a sprained MCL. From that point of the game, the Ravens offense stalled repeatedly. Denver keyed in on the ground game and shut down running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce. Meanwhile, players like Dallas Clark and Ed Dickson proved they were not ready to step up and fill the production void left by the injuries to Jones and Dennis Pitta as well as the departed Anquan Boldin. That allowed Denver to focus their attention defensively on Torrey Smith and nobody else was able to step up for the Ravens in the receiving corps. Clark and Dickson both dropped multiple passes thrown to them by Joe Flacco. Baltimore’s secondary also Read more

NFL Handicapping Trends: Week 1 produces big passing yards but .500 on totals

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some crazy offensive numbers for Week 1 of the NFL regular season. It marked the fewest rushing yards of any opening week since 2002. According to one NFL source, Week 1 also produced the most passing yards of and week in league history. But even after last night's two MNF games went over the total, totals are now 8-8 over/under on the year.

NFL Betting Recap: Philadelphia Eagles soar early and hang on for outright win

You saw the best and the worst of what the Oregon approach has to offer for the Philadelphia Eagles in their Monday night season opener against the Washington Redskins.

*Early explosiveness

*A dumb turnover that gave away points

*A 26-7 halftime lead that could have been 29-0 or 33-0

*A loss of fire with a big lead

*A second-half run by Michael Vick where he seemed to strain a groin muscle before walking gingerly the rest of the night

 That 26-7 halftime lead only turned into a 33-27 victory. And the raw stats don’t really suggest something that’s about to take the league by storm. Let’s look at the linescore…
 
 Philadelphia 33 (+3.5), Washington 27

Philadelphia: 443 yards, 5.8 per-play, 2 turnovers, 47% third downs

Washington: 382 yards, 5.5 per-play, 3 turnovers, 20% third downs

A lot of yards…but that’s because the team ran a lot of Read more

CRIS now posting College Football lines Sunday morning

09.09.2013     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When bettors woke up Sunday morning they were probably surprised to see that CRIS had already posted its opening numbers for Week 3 college football. There appears to be a lot of changes going on at CRIS – earlier openers, higher limits, and more opinionated lines. With Pinnacle no longer having as large an impact on the market (the college basketball markets were extremely weak once Pinny shutdown a majority of its credit accounts) CRIS has pretty much taken over as the “leading market indicator.” We’ll be discussing CRIS’s opening numbers and initial lines moves for Week 3 college football on today’s Sportsmemo Podcast with Rob Veno.

College Football Gambling: Texas fires defensive coordinator Manny Diaz

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following Saturday's 40-21 loss at BYU, Texas fired defensive coordinator Manny Diaz. Diaz was replaced with veteran coach Greg Robinson who was serving as the Longhorns' video analyst. In Texas' last 12 games vs. BCS conference foes dating back to last season they allowed an average of 33.6 ppg.


"Our performance on defense last night was unacceptable, and we need to change that," Brown said in a statement issued by the school.

"This is a tough deal for everyone involved, but I love the University of Texas and coach Brown has been wonderful to me," Robinson said in a statement released through the school. "I'll do anything I can to help him.
