CRIS now posting College Football lines Sunday morning

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.

College Football Betting News and Notes - Week 2

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Another week void of any significant upsets. Washington State beat USC as over a two-touchdown underdog while Navy dispatched of Indiana as a double-digit underdog. Needless to say, most rec bettors who like to four- and five-team moneyline parlay big favorites have yet to hit many road blocks.

With most offshore books now offering lines on FBS vs. FCS games bettors will have another crack at betting against Ron Turner and his Florida International squad. Yes, the Panthers played two teams in Maryland and UCF that they probably would have lost to any other season, but it was the way that FIU lost (43-10, 38-0) that has them vying with Idaho and New Mexico State for the label of Worst Team in the Country. Don't sleep on this week's opponent Bethune-Cookman who last season rushed for 233 yards on Miami and hung tough for the first half. The year before that B-C outgained the Canes 422-335.

After a dismal showing in its opener at Virginia, BYU wasn't on the radar of many bettors. Meanwhile, a lot of folks were drinking the Texas kool-aid after they dismantled woeful New Mexico State. And for a sophisticated as the betting markets are portrayed at times, there is no Read more

College Football Betting Recap: Georgia, BYU, Michigan, and Miami pick up marquee wins

I’m going to tweak the format just a bit to make the presentation more digestible. I’m trying to include a bunch of meaningful categories in each game. But, when re-reading everything I’m tending to skip over the numbers just to get to the copy. If you’re doing that too…then the stats are kind of disappearing from the presentation! Don’t want subtraction of the visualization by addition of numbers.

So, let’s try this…I’m going to put a few traditional key numbers in a baseball style linescore…then I’ll do a separate hunk just below with additional bits and the categories that are exclusive to this site.

There were four marquee TV games Saturday (I include Texas/BYU since I’m writing from Austin!). Let’s take them in the order they finished…

Miami 21, Florida 13

Florida: 413 yards, 5.4 per-play, 5 turnovers, 40% third downs

Miami: 212 yards, 4.0 Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears

Cincinnati at Chicago
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Chicago -3 O/U 43.5
CRIS Current: Chicago -3 (-105) O/U 41.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Chicago -2.5
Erin Rynning's Recommendation: Under

The Bengals have become the popular sleeper pick to win the rough and tumble AFC North and even more so following the Ravens debacle on Thursday night.  To win the AFC North it all starts on the defensive side of the football and the Bengals can answer that question with a roster deep on talent.  Head coach Marvin Lewis made his name on the defensive side of the football while defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer has done a standout job.  Of course, it’s about the players as Geno Atkins is finally receiving accolades along the defensive line.  And there’s plenty more with cornerback Leon Hall, linebacker Vontaze Burfict, and now the addition of James Harrison.  The Bengals defense has the Read more

Update: Billy Walters sticks up for Cantor, others not so much

UPDATE

Part II of bettingtalk.com's excellent interview with Billy Walters. Disgusted with the current state of the Las Vegas sportsbook scene, Walters did however throw praise towards Cantor Gaming as a place where sharp bettors could play. But according to the article, other pro bettors have had issues with Cantor, issues that seemingly coincided with Mike Colbert/Pinnacle shakedown.

College Football Gambling Preview: Florida Gators at Miami Hurricanes

Florida at Miami (FL)
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Florida -3 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Florida -3 O/U 48
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida -6
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

The Florida vs. Miami rivalry isn’t much of a rivalry these days.  The two teams haven’t played since 2008, and have no scheduled meetings following Saturday’s clash at the Orange Bowl in Miami. When they played in ’08, Urban Meyer was at the height of his career with Florida, and the game was no contest: a 26-3 Gators win, with Miami held to just 140 yards of total offense.  That being said, Miami was a 24-point underdog at the closing number, and Hurricane backers got the money when they lost by only 23.

Florida’s defense may be every bit as good this year.  They completely stifled a pretty good Toledo offense last week, holding the Rockets to 12 first Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats at Illinois Fighting Illini

Cincinnati at Illinois
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -7.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Cincinnati -7.5 O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Cincinnati -13
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Cincinnati

The word is clearly out that Illinois is not to be respected at all this season. Last week we saw the Illini open -24 vs. Southern Illinois and close -17. They were in control for much of the game but SIU was able to punch in a score in the fourth quarter and U of I slipped by with a 42-34 win. And that margin was how it looked in the box score – Illinois with slight edges in first downs and total yardage.

This week, the Illini take a big step up in class as they play host to Cincinnati. The Bearcats weren't particularly sharp last week against Purdue but still rolled to a 42-7 victory. Keep in mind that from a power rating standpoint, some would argue that Purdue is stronger Read more

NFL Gambling News: Revis gives Buccaneers the scoop on Jets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tampa Bay -3 at New York Jets O/U 39.5

Darrelle Revis obviously knows a thing or two about the New York Jets and he's been busy divulging as much info as he can to Tampa Bay's coaching staff. And on a related note, according to a few reports, Geno Smith came out and said it wasn't necessary to watch film of Revis. The media is making it sound like Smith isn't prepping for his first start which is obviously untrue. That said, why would Smith say something so cavalier knowing that if he stinks up the joint – which is very possible – or Revis picks off a pass he'll spend the next week of his life getting called out my the New York media.


"It's just one of those things, when a player comes from another team, [offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan] is asking a couple of questions about [the Jets'] defense and what
