College Basketbal Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Minnesota Golden Gophers

01.06.2013     08:57 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Northwestern +16.5 at Minnesota O/U 131.5
Recommendation: Northwestern

The Gophers are fat and happy off their 18-2 closeout run against Michigan State on Monday, turning a very tight game into a blowout in the final four minutes. The Wildcats are looking for redemption following their worst loss of the season, a 99-64 home annihilation at the hands of #2 Michigan. It was a game where the Wolverines couldn’t miss, hitting just shy of 60% of their shots from both inside and outside the arc. Put those two factors together with this inflated double digit pointspread and Northwestern becomes a clear choice on Sunday.

Minnesota has repeatedly struggled to get good shots against the Wildcats 1-3-1 zone in every recent meeting. Northwestern has won four of the last seven meetings between these two schools, and Minnesota only has one win by more than eleven points against the Wildcats in the last nine games that they’ve played, a competitive Read more

Big weekend for Las Vegas bettors and sportsbooks

01.04.2013     12:59 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Las Vegas sportsbooks gear up for a big weekend starting with Saturday's two NFL Wild Card matchups and ending Monday with the BCS National Championship.

“The national championship game will be equivalent to the pro games for us,” Wynn Las Vegas Race and Sports Director John Avello said. “Normally, the pro games are bigger, but this year they’re all going to be big writes.”

“I’d suggest that game will be the biggest turning point of the weekend,” Vaccaro said. “I’m almost sure we’ll need Minnesota, but not because of straight bets. The Packers will be tied into every parlay and teaser.”

“People who are betting Alabama are going to lay the 9.5 points,” Vaccaro said. “But there are a lot of people who would just rather root for Notre Dame to win. We’ve gotten a little attacked on the Notre Dame moneyline. That’s what we’re seeing so far, and I think that could be what we keep seeing.”

Sunday, January 6, 6 pm PT - ESPN
Arkansas State vs. Kent State
CRIS Opener:
Arkansas State -3 O/U 61
CRIS Current: Arkansas State -4 O/U 61
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Arkansas State -0.5

The last of the mid major bowls kicks off on Sunday, the final game of what should be an exciting day’s worth of football. While it’s definitely not as exciting as the NFL Playoffs, as a standalone primetime game it should garner some attention. The Bowl takes place in Mobile which is notorious for its rain —in fact it’s the wettest city in the United States—but the preliminary forecast calls for a dry evening so totals bettors shouldn’t have to worry about poor conditions.

Both Arkansas State and Kent State like to run the football. The Golden Flashes rank 15th in the country in rushing yards per Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Utah Jazz at Phoenix Suns

01.04.2013     12:01 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Utah at Phoenix -1.5 O/U 197.5
Recommendation: Phoenix

The Suns have absolutely owned the Jazz, winning eight of the last ten meetings between these two teams on any floor.  That includes a comfortable 99-84 Phoenix victory when these two teams met just three weeks ago; a game that the Suns led by double digits after the first quarter and controlled thereafter.

There’s no reason to expect a dramatically different result tonight.  The betting markets haven’t fully grasped the impact of the Mo Williams injury for Utah.  Sure, the Jazz are 2-3 SU, 3-2 ATS without him for the last five games – nothing significant there.  But this is not as good of a team with career backups Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson splitting time at the point, as opposed to a former all-star.  And facing a quick opposing point guard like Goran Dragic is likely to make the Jazz feel Williams’s absence that much more tonight.

College Basketball Gambling: Northwestern turns to underclassmen vs. Michigan

01.03.2013     01:06 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Michigan -10.5 at Northwestern O/U 128.5

It'll be interesting to see how Northwestern handles tonight's matchup against Michigan. The Wildcats already lost Drew Crawford (13.5 ppg) for the season and Reggie Hearn (14.5 ppg) is out with an ankle injury. As a result, Northwestern's top six players in terms of possessions used are four freshmen, a sophomore and a senior.

"Where are we going to get the scoring from?" Carmody asked. "Three weeks ago, we had Drew and Reggie and they gave me 30 a game. Who are you going to get it from?"

"Coach Carmody has had a lot of success with freshmen in his system and it's one of those years where we're going to have to have freshmen step in and do the best they can and play with confidence and run the stuff they run," Sobolewski said.

NFL Handicapping: Ravens look to maintain success vs. rookie quarterbacks

01.03.2013     10:39 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Indianapolis at Baltimore -6.5 O/U 47

The Baltimore Ravens have a pretty strong history against rookie quarterbacks under head coach John Harbaugh. In eight games, Baltimore went 6-2 and held those first-year signal callers for 51% completions and a 60.4 passer rating.

“I can't tell you any secrets, but we've got a little niche going,” defensive tackle Arthur Jones said. “We definitely have something going that you'll see on Sunday. We've definitely got something going that's positive and been working for us against rookie quarterbacks to isolate them and prevent them from performing at high levels.”

Sun Bowl Betting Preview: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. USC Trojans

Sun Bowl - El Paso, Texas

Georgia Tech vs. USC
CRIS Opener:
USC -10 O/U 66
CRIS Current: USC -7.5 O/U 64
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -9

Not real sure of the interest level that will be exhibited by the entire USC squad here so Georgia Tech is likely to have a motivational advantage. The season ending nine-point home loss to Notre Dame doesn’t look terrible on paper, but the way it unfolded seemed to be the decisive final straw in defining the Trojans campaign as a total bust. Since then, the negativity surrounding the program has continued to grow. Beleaguered defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is out the door after this game and on his way back to the NFL. Head coach Lane Kiffin is currently viewed by fans and media in a completely negative fashion and his competence is especially being questioned. Quarterback Matt Barkley’s Read more

NFL Handicapping: Oakland to start Terrelle Pryor vs. San Diego

12.28.2012     01:29 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Well, if anything, Sunday's Oakland-San Diego game will be a tad more interesting. After giving Matt Leinart the start last week – the results were very Mark Sanchez-esque – the Raiders have decided to go with Terrelle Pryor to close out the season. Oakland must have gotten the memo that unlike Leinart, there is at least a small chance Pryor won't totally suck.

Fight Hunger Bowl Gambling Preview: Navy Midshipmen vs. Arizona State Sun Devils

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl – San Francisco
Saturday, December 29, 1 pm PT – ESPN
Navy vs. Arizona State
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -15.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Arizona State -13.5 O/U 55.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Arizona State -14.5

There are a multitude of contrasts and advantages to be considered in this game but motivation is not one of them. Each squad has openly expressed their excitement to be in the postseason so we figure to get maximum effort. Preparation time is essential when facing Navy’s triple option attack and even with the extra time, ASU is not finding things easy. First year head coach Todd Graham cites the Navy blocking scheme as difficult to defend and obviously simulating it in practice is nothing like what the Sun Devils will see Saturday afternoon. There are problems for Navy too in prepping for Arizona State’s high powered and Read more
