NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears

09.07.2013     06:05 PM     ER Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ER Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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

NFL Gambling Preview: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions

Minnesota at Detroit
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Detroit -3 O/U 46
CRIS Current: Detroit -4 O/U 46.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Detroit -1.5
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Minnesota

Detroit comes into season with an eight-game regular season losing streak. They were swept by the Vikings last year, losing by seven at home and by ten in Minneapolis as part of a 4-12 season. The Vikings finished with a 10-6 record in 2012 and dropped a first round playoff game to the Packers with Christian Ponder on the sidelines with an injury.

Detroit made some major changes in the offseason to try to find the right personnel to match Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson. Reggie Bush was brought in to be the new lead running back and there are three new starters on the offensive line. A better running game would certainly help Stafford, who has been asked to do too much with his arm in recent years. The first unit did not Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers

Green Bay at San Francisco
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
San Francisco -5.5 O/U 48
CRIS Current: San Francisco -4.5 O/U 48
Rob Veno's Power Rating: San Francisco -5.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: San Francisco

A bit of redemption is at stake here in week one as the Packers look to atone for the 45-31 NFC Divisional Round playoff loss right here eight months ago. In that game the Green Bay defense was shredded for 579 total yards, 323 of which came from the 49ers rushing attack. Certainly Green Bay is healthier this time around and they’ve had the entire off-season to dissect film of that contest which should result in some improvement. Another factor that should help Green Bay even further is the loss of San Francisco’s top wideout Michael Crabtree. Crabtree tore the Pack up in the January playoff rout catching nine passes for 119 yards and a pair of touchdowns. While Green Bay may be able to Read more

College Football Handicapping: Estimated Power Ratings as of 9/5/13

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Having given sharps time to take their shots at this week’s college football openers, I’ve updated last week’s Estimated Market Power Ratings based on the pointspreads we’re seeing midday Wednesday. Note that I use a standard 3 points for home field advantage. The numbers you see below basically represent “at-the-moment” pointspreads with that 3-point adjustment.

There are some big jumps forward and backward from last week. That’s because I surely mis-guessed in many places…and because several teams had extreme results that influenced perceptions of how they’d play out of the gate. Going through game-by-game…there were still a few head scratchers for me. I’m trying to put the couplets in the right spots on a big scale. We’ll have a better shot of representing the market’s view about a month from now.

An example: Wyoming is -28 right now over Idaho…which means they should be 25 points Read more

College Football Totals Betting: Applying what we saw in Week 1

09.04.2013     02:07 PM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The four to six day handicapping bridge from college football's Week 1 to Week 2’s bets and recommendations has often been labeled the trickiest one of all. Throughout late spring and then the summer, extensive hours were put in by many on each side of the counter to formulate opinions on how the 126 FBS teams will fare this season and plays were made for last week’s games accordingly. Now, with a full week of data it’s time to assess the accuracy of initial projections and react to this week’s matchups. For myself, raw power ratings are adjusted Sunday morning and projected lines calculated anywhere from 3-8 hours before the openers become available. I’ve learned and constantly stated for the 21 years I’ve been in this business that each situation is individual and there is no blanket statement or theory that applies to how heavily you should react. Less can be best and more may be necessary while no reaction at all may be correct too. For this season’s opening article, let’s take a look at how to approach Week 2 from a totals perspective.

Last week we saw a couple of important elements that led to instances of huge second Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints

Atlanta at New Orleans
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
New Orleans -3 O/U 53
CRIS Current: New Orleans -3 (-120) O/U 54
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New Orleans -1.5
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: New Orleans

The Atlanta Falcons had a terrific 13-3 season last year and earned the #1 seed in the NFC but lost in the NFC Championship at home to the San Francisco 49ers. I don’t envision the same amount of success for the Falcons here in 2013. Atlanta had a very weak schedule that was littered with mediocre to bad teams. This year the slate is much tougher and right off the bat they draw a tough matchup against the rejuvenated and motivated New Orleans Saints.

Atlanta’s offensive line still looks weak. They struggled to keep Matt Ryan upright against better pass rushes and also had difficulties running the football at a productive level. They did acquire Stephen Jackson during the offseason but he is Read more

College Football Handicapping: Early line moves for Week 2

09.04.2013     06:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Taking a quick look at some of the more significant lines moves for Week 2.

Wake Forest at Boston College
CRIS Opener: Boston College pk
CRIS Current: Boston College -3
Comment: Both teams won but failed to cover vs. FCS foes.

West Virginia at Oklahoma
CRIS Opener: Oklahoma -17.5
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -21
Comment:  Bettors obviously not impressed by WVU's 24-17 win over William & Mary. Oklahoma meanwhile shutout Sun Belt co-favorite UL-Monroe.

South Alabama at Tulane
CRIS Opener: Tulane -3.5
CRIS Current: Tulane -6.5
Comment: USA got beat at home against Samford – and it was hardly an upset as Samford closed -9.5. Tulane took care of Jackson State.

Texas at BYU
CRIS Opener: Texas -4.5
CRIS Current: Texas -7 (-7.5 at other sportsbooks)
Comment: BYU's top receiver Cody Hoffman remains questionable. Quarterback Taysom Hill was 13-of-40 in last week's loss to Virginia. Texas put up 715 yards and 56 points on New Mexico State.

UL-Lafayette at Kansas State
CRIS Opener: Kansas Read more

College Football Betting Recap: Louisville, Colorado Score Sunday Statement Wins

09.02.2013     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Sunday afternoon, the Louisville Cardinals made a very strong case for being a legitimate top 10 caliber team rather than a media invention with a rout of Ohio. Later Sunday, Colorado may have rejoined big time football with a victory over state rival Colorado State that was more one-sided than the score made it look.

Let’s run the numbers…

Louisville 49 (-21), Ohio 7

Total Yardage: Ohio 273, Louisville 615

Passing Stats: Ohio 15-31-1-192, Louisville 25-31-1-416

Yards-per-Play: Ohio 4.6, Louisville 8.7

Turnovers: Ohio 1, Louisville 1

Drive Points: Ohio 0, Louisville 42

Stat Score: Ohio 16, Louisville 36

If you watched the first few series, you knew it was going to be ugly. Louisville showed up ready to play. It was as if they were tired of hearing they didn’t belong in the Top 10. Skeptics believed the early poll nod was a result of a decent team playing an easy schedule rather Read more

College Football Betting Recap: Clemson, LSU Score Showcase Victories

As promised, back with numbers and notes from the two marquee prime time games in Saturday night college football. Let’s see what happened in Georgia/Clemson and LSU/TCU…

Clemson 38 (+1.5), Georgia 35

Total Yardage: Georgia 544, Clemson 467

Passing Stats: Georgia 20-29-1-323, Clemson 18-30-0-270

Yards-per-Play: Georgia 7.8, Clemson 6.1

Turnovers: Georgia 2, Clemson 1

Drive Points: Georgia 35, Clemson 24

Stat Score: Georgia 34, Clemson 30

Exhilarating first half, followed by more of a sluggish second half (42 combined points in the first half, jut 31 in the second). Georgia screwed up a chippy field goal attempt that ended up being the difference maker. You can see that Georgia had the better stats outside of turnovers. Turnovers are usually worth about four points in value. Apply that to the stat score and we get a dead heat. If Georgia doesn’t muck up that short field goal it’s a Read more
