College Basketball Betting Free Play: East Carolina Pirates at Duke Blue Devils

East Carolina at Duke -23.5
Recommendation: Duke


East Carolina knows it is lucky to be in this spot after rallying back from 17 down in the second half to clip Norfolk State by two. I give credit to the Pirates for fighting back but a vast majority of their win had to do with Norfolk's shortcomings (2-of-14 from 3, 10-of-20 from the line including multiple misses in crunch time). No question ECU put forth a ton of effort in that comeback win and with no rest they must turnaround and face a Duke squad that has had no trouble handling lesser competition. The Blue Devils have wins by 34, 33, and 36 on their home court. And to me, ECU is not far removed personnel wise to that of Davidson, Florida Atlantic, and UNC Asheville. Also note that as Jeff Lebo has built up the ECU program, he's been pretty active is staying away from top-tier competition. In 2011, they faced Clemson (No. 22 Ken Pom) and last year lost by six at North Carolina (No. 32). With the exception of Memphis in C-USA, those are arguably the two toughest teams ECU has faced in three-plus years – and this year’s version of Duke is far better than all three. And East Carolina was Read more

College Football Gambling: Teams fighting for bowl berths

11.18.2013     08:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Taking a look at a few teams and games with bowl berth implications. Obviously there will be a handful of teams with six wins that won't participate in the postseason but this should give you a primer of those teams knocking on the door.

Rutgers (5-4) - The Scarlet Knights have three games remaining but have lost three of their last four by margins of 14, 35, and 35. Short week of prep for Thursday's game at UCF.

UNLV (5-5) - The Rebels haven't been to a bowl game since 2000. Two games remain: at Air Force (Thu.), and vs. San Diego State.

Navy (6-4) and San Jose (5-5) - The Midshipmen have already accepted a bid to the Armed Force Bowl. The Spartans were sitting pretty two weeks ago but back-to-back losses and the season finale vs. Fresno make Friday's game against Navy a must-win.

Pittsburgh (5-5) and Syracuse (5-5) - These two teams hook up on Saturday in the Carrier Dome with the Panthers currently a short road favorite.

Tennessee (4-6) - The Vols have lost three straight but come in off of a bye week and play host to Vanderbilt (6-4). They'll Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 12 Injury Report

11.14.2013     01:40 PM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCLA running back Jordon James will start Friday vs. Washington. James has missed four of the last five games with an ankle injury. He tried to come back two weeks ago vs. Colorado but was held to eight yards on six carries. Jim Mora Jr. chose to rest James in last week’s 31-26 win at Arizona. With OT Simon Goines ruled ‘out’ Thursday, the Bruins will be without three starting offensive linemen but it’s been that way for the last three games.

Florida lost a 10th player to a season-ending injury when starting LB Antonio Morris tore his meniscus in a 34-17 home loss to Vanderbilt. Morrison is the seventh starter to go down for the year and with OT D.J. Humphries also ‘out,’ UF will be without at least eight starters Saturday at South Carolina. QB Tyler Murphy is expected to be a game-time decision due to a sore shoulder. If Murphy can’t go, Skyler Mornhinweg (yes, Marty’s son) will get the starting nod. Mornhinweg, a redshirt freshman, has never taken a collegiate snap. The Gators are double-digit underdogs (+13.5 as of Wednesday) for just the second time under Will Muschamp.

Mississippi State could be without two Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Michigan State Spartans at Nebraska Cornhuskers

Michigan State at Nebraska
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Michigan State -3.5 O/U 41
CRIS Current: Michigan State -6 O/U 41.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Michigan State -6
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Michigan State

Major opportunity for Michigan State to put a near stranglehold on the Big Ten’s Legends Division title. The Spartans have obviously ridden their tenacious defense to this point and that group figures to be the focal point for success once again. Nebraska has a huge chance to capitalize on this game as well since a win would put them atop the Legends at 5-1 and in control of their own destiny. They’ve averaged nearly 40 points per game (39.8) in their six home contests thus far but the offense has sputtered lately scoring 23 points or less in their last three games if you subtract the Hail Mary game winner versus Northwestern. The Cornhuskers have not been a Read more

Baltimore at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Chicago -3 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Chicago -3 O/U 45
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Chicago -3
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Chicago

I just can’t recommend a bet in this price range right now with the Baltimore Ravens especially playing away from M&T Bank Stadium. Baltimore is a shell of the Super Bowl team from a year ago. There is zero downfield passing game as Joe Flacco has struggled mightily with 6.4 yards per attempt and a 12-11 TD-INT ratio. They can’t run the football either with Ray Rice averaging just 2.5 yards per carry. The defense clearly hasn’t been the same after losing veteran leadership from the likes of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed in the offseason. As a team they rank middle of the pack in the NFL in total defense allowing 342.2 yards per game. Baltimore is 4-5 on the season including a 1-3 SU/ATS run. That is not the kind of track Read more

Bettors claims to have made five-figure (losing) NFL parlay wager

11.13.2013     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly
You'll get a kick out of this one even though there is a 99.9% chance it’s a hoax. On the 49ers' Reddit page a user claimed to have he bet his life savings ($65K) on a two-team parlay last week – Cincinnati -1 and San Francisco -6 (both plays obviously lost). The bet was allegedly made at Bovada which almost assuredly doesn't take five-figure NFL parlays. Maybe one of our blog readers who has an account there can verify if A., the open bet screen of our parlay bettor is accurate and B., what Bovada's two-team parlay limits are going for these days.  Thanks in advance.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC News and Notes from Week 10

11.11.2013     11:22 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Welcome to Teddy’s unique look at the NFL. Teddy watches games all day on Sunday, typing furiously on his laptop while giving you the key info that the box scores and game recaps don’t necessarily have. This week: AFC thoughts and opinions from Week 10.

Cincinnati Bengals - Five key starters are missing from this defense. Geno Atkins, Robert Geathers, Taylor Mays and Leon Hall are all on injured reserve. Rey Maualuga was out today, as was fellow LB Michael Boley. That's one heck of a lot of talent to be missing! So for this stop unit to shut down the Ravens for the better part of the last three quarters speaks volumes about their depth and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer’s schemes.

All the questions about Andy Dalton's ability to guide this team to postseason success continue to linger. Dalton won the AFC Offensive Player of the Month award in October, but here in November he could win the 'biggest downgrade of any QB this month' award. Dalton was awful last Thursday against the Dolphins and he was even worse today.

Dalton held the ball too long, taking sacks instead of making quick decisions. His accuracy Read more

Sunday, 10 am PT – CBS
CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -2.5 O/U 42
CRIS Current: Cincinnati O/U 44.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Baltimore pk
Brian Edwards’ Recommendation: Over

If Baltimore (3-5 straight up, 3-5 against the spread) has any hopes of getting back into the AFC North race, it desperately needs a win Sunday vs. Cincinnati. As of Friday, most books had the Bengals favored by -1.5 with a total of 44.

Cincinnati (6-3 SU, 5-3-1 ATS) has had a few extra days of preparation after losing a 22-20 decision at Miami last Thursday. The Bengals suffered the overtime defeat as 3-point road chalk.

Marvin Lewis’s team leads the AFC North with a 1.5-game advantage over second-place Cleveland. The Bengals had won four in a row before being knocked off by the Dolphins.

Even worse than the loss at Miami was the season-ending ACL tear sustained by Read more

Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Miami -6 O/U 43.5
CRIS Current: Miami -6.5 (-115) O/U 44

Rob Veno's Recommendation: Virginia Tech

Huge ACC Championship Game implications here as these teams meet with the Coastal Division still up for grabs. At 3-1 inside the conference, Miami holds a one game edge in the loss column over 3-2 Virginia Tech and 5-2 Georgia Tech. Having already defeated the Yellow Jackets this season, all that stands in the way of a Miami rematch with Florida State in the ACC Championship game is a win here over Virginia Tech plus a victory either at Duke or home versus Virginia. Obviously this is their main hurdle. For Virginia Tech, a victory here propels them into undisputed first place in the Coastal as they would own tie-breaker victories over Georgia Tech and Miami. On deck for the Hokies are a home Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 11 Injury Report

11.07.2013     07:59 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stanford won’t have DE Ben Gardner for the rest of the season, but at least it is getting another 2012 All-Pac-12 selection back in the lineup. DE Henry Anderson is ‘probable’ vs. Oregon after missing several games with a leg injury.

Troy uses a two-QB system with Deon Anthony used in running situations. Anthony has rushed for 392 yards and three TDs while averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Anthony, who also has three TD passes without an interception, is ‘doubtful’ Thursday at UL-Lafayette after spraining his ankle in a 49-37 loss to ULM last week. Corey Robinson (18-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio) will get all the snaps for the Trojans.

Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis has been upgraded to ‘probable’ vs. BYU after sustaining a chest injury on a touchdown catch in Saturday’s 28-9 win at Iowa. The Badgers will also get back two-time All Big Ten linebacker Chris Borland, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

Iowa QB Jake Rudock left the Wisconsin loss in the second half with a knee injury, but he’s good to go and will start at Purdue. Rudock has a 12-9 TD-INT ratio.
