College Football Betting News and Notes - Week 7

Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Three weeks, three total meltdowns for Air Force in the second half. The end result for the Falcons was 0-3 SU/1-2 ATS.

at Nevada - AFA had a 35-24 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Nevada scored back-to-back touchdowns with six minutes remaining to win 45-42.

at Navy - AFA led 10-7 at half but was outscored 21-0 after the break and not only lost straight up but failed to cover +13.5.

vs. San Diego State - Catching +3.5, AFA was all but handed a pointspread cover with a 20-6 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Three SDSU touchdowns later the final score read 27-20.

It was only one game, and against a porous Arizona defense, but USC looked a lot more aggressive following the departure of Lane Kiffin. Cody Kessler averaged nearly 10 yards per attempt and the Trojans ran 75 plays and racked up 546 yards. Also note that after feasting on a handful of sub-par offenses, USC's defense allowed both Arizona State and Arizona to move the ball will relative ease (1,120 yards, 7.6 ypp combined). It'll be interesting to see what stop unit shows up this weekend in South Bend. In theory, the Irish should be the type of offense the Trojans can contain. Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC News and Notes from Week 6

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 6.

Denver Broncos - This offense does NOT take downfield shots; arguably the best 'dink and dunk' attack I've ever seen. The passing game is just lots and lots of well executed short passes thrown by a remarkably accurate quarterback. Even on a day where the Broncos were clearly a little bit flat in a legitimate sandwich spot against the worst team in the league, the Broncos still had five offensive touchdowns compared to only three punts and zero field goal attempts.

But this secondary is officially a problem area, even with Champ Bailey active today. We all saw what Tony Romo did to them last week. Here, Chad Henne was converting on 3rd and 25’s and Justin Blackmon was catching 14 balls for 190 yards. Rahim Moore was dropping sure interceptions, they were getting gashed on the ground, and the pass rush wasn't there. To make matters worse, Denver has a cluster injury Read more

College Football Gambling: Syracuse adopting run-first philosophy

10.11.2013     12:02 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Syracuse at NC State -7 O/U 54

Syracuse has quietly morphed into a run-first offense these days thanks to some questionable quarterback play (10 INTs) and talented backfield. Over the last three weeks, the Orange have run the ball 48, 45, and 48 times for 764 yards (5.4 ypc). In Weeks 1 and 2, they ran 71 times for 204 yards.

"For us to have success, we need to get the ball to the second level quickly and let those running backs do what they do best. I know our kids are really focused in on understanding that that's a big part of this game plan."

NFL Gambling Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Philadelphia at Tampa Bay
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Philadelphia -1.5 O/U 45.5
CRIS Current: Philadelphia -2 O/U 45
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Tampa Bay -1.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Philadelphia -0.5 1st half

Tough to gauge how Tampa Bay is going to come out of the bye week after having so much conflict between head coach Greg Schiano and former quarterback Josh Freeman. They should come out with extreme intensity and their sights set on getting into the win column but if things go wrong at the outset of this contest they could get discouraged. The wretched play of the entire NFC East Division is the only reason Philadelphia remains in a somewhat confident place heading into this Sunday. Local media and fan base alike were all ready to jump ship on Chip Kelly’s initial season had the Eagles lost to the winless Giants last week, but the victory along with the solid play of backup Nick Foles have Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Baylor Bears at Kansas State Wildcats

Baylor at Kansas State
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -10.5 O/U 72
CRIS Current: Baylor -17.5 O/U 73.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baylor -10
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Kansas State

Considering all the time that went into discussing this game in both the forum and podcast, I felt obligated to do this write-up. College football has changed so much over the last few years that profiles like this – WHO is laying WHAT at WHERE?? – no longer gain much attention. It’s the age of sophisticated offenses, sharp power ratings, and betting markets that would rather lay -30 with a dominant team than try to "hope for the best" with and outclassed foe despite the value. You can't accurately power rate what Baylor has done to this point simply because it is such rarified air. We've seen it with Oregon but the Ducks are a proven commodity whereas Baylor is not.

NCAA Football Betting Alert: Maryland's CJ Brown doubtful vs. Virginia

10.10.2013     03:04 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Virginia at Maryland -7 O/U 44.5

Just announced on Twitter that Maryland quarterback CJ Brown (concussion) is “doubtful” for Saturday’s game vs. Virginia. The Terps opened 4-point favorites but mid-week were bet up to -7/-7.5 – an indication bettors were confident that Brown would suit up. We’ll update tomorrow on Brown’s potential replacement.

College Football Handicapping: Week 7 Injury Report

10.10.2013     08:06 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Louisville WR DaVante Parker is ‘questionable’ tonight vs. Rutgers with a shoulder injury. Parker has 21 receptions for 375 yards and six TDs.

Rutgers LB Jamal Merrell will be back tonight after missing three games with a kidney ailment. Merrell was the Scarlet Knights’ leading returning tackler who had 7.5 stops for losses last year. RU running back Paul James will miss his second straight game at Louisville. James has run for 573 yards and six TDs this year.

South Carolina All-American DE and future first-round pick Jadeveon Clowney didn’t go in last week’s 35-28 win over Kentucky. For the third straight game, the Gamecocks burned their backers by giving up another backdoor cover. Clowney (bruised ribs) remains ‘questionable’ for Saturday’s game at Arkansas. The air seems to have been cleared with Steve Spurrier and Clowney making comments this week about his commitment to the team that came in question when he told his coaches he couldn’t play against UK. On the complete flip side, Connor Shaw did play against the ‘Cats after hurting his shoulder the week before. Shaw showed no signs of pain in Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Green Bay Packers at Baltimore Ravens

Green Bay at Baltimore
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Green Bay -3.5 O/U 47.5
CRIS Current: Green Bay -3 O/U 48.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Baltimore pk
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

We got two underrated defenses facing off against two offenses that are struggling in the red zone AND committed to running the football . Put those three factors together with the consistently high totals in the modern NFL era and the case for the Under is perfectly clear.

Let me start with the defenses. Green Bay got Morgan Burnett back in the lineup at safety last week after missing the first three games of the season and he definitely had an impact, saving a potential big play TD with a beautiful pass breakup. The Packers front seven really controlled the field against Detroit, and there’s no reason to think they won’t be able to do it again here even without Clay Matthews relentless pass rushing Read more

College Football Betting Update: Holgorsen and Trickett still not on the same page

10.08.2013     11:34 AM     Printer Friendly

Heading into last week's game at Baylor, we posted a blog on the communication difficulties between West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen and quarterback Clint Trickett. By all accounts those issues continued as Trickett finished 9-of-28 for 161 yards and the Mountaineers did little to nothing offensively until the fourth quarter when the game out of reach. WVU will try to shore things up during the bye week as it prepares for a home tilt vs. Texas Tech.

“I’m not doing something right,” Holgorsen said. “There (were) a lot of times in the first couple of series’ where I was giving (Trickett) specific orders, and they weren’t being followed.”

“Offensively, we’re not equipped to keep up at this point in time. Hopefully we get there at some point,” said West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen.
