College Football Betting Preview: North Carolina Tar Heels at NC State Wolfpack

North Carolina at NC State
Saturday, 9:30 am PT - ESPN Game Plan
CRIS Opener:
North Carolina -3 O/U 55
CRIS Current: North Carolina -4 O/U 57.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: North Carolina -6.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: NC State

There aren't very many statistics that I can use to make a case for supporting NC State. The Wolfpack are 0-4 in ACC play and own non-conference wins over Louisiana Tech, Richmond (by 2), and Central Michigan. North Carolina meanwhile has battled the likes of South Carolina, Virginia Tech, and Miami and while coming up on the short of end of it in those three games, the Tar Heels have shown to be at least capable. But that doesn't mean they are deserving of laying over a field goal on the road in a rivalry game as NC State should be primed for its best showing of the season.

NC State was dealt some bad cards when starting quarterback Brandon Mitchell went Read more

College Football Handicapping: Week 10 Injury Report

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
For Thursday’s AAC matchup vs. South Florida, Houston RB Ryan Jackson is ‘questionable’ after possibly sustaining a concussion in last week’s 49-14 win at Rutgers. Jackson has rushed 95 times for a team-high 477 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 5.0 yards per carry.

USC is hoping to get star WR Marquise Lee (knee) back for Friday’s game at Oregon State. Lee missed last week’s win over Utah and is ‘questionable’ against the Beavers. The Trojans will be without starting TE Randall Telfer and the laundry list of defensive injuries continues to grow. DE Morgan Breslin, who had a team-high 13 sacks in 2012, remains ‘out’ with a hip injury. Starting LB Lamar Dawson was recently lost to a season-ending injury along with reserve safety Gerald Bowman. Starting cornerback Anthony Brown (arm) is also ‘out’ at OSU.

Mike Riley’s team has plenty of its own injury concerns. On the last play of Oregon State’s 20-12 home loss to Stanford last week, WR Kevin Cummings was lost for the season with a broken wrist. Cummings had 23 receptions for 254 yards and two TDs during his senior Read more

College Football Gambling: NC State primed for better offense vs. North Carolina

North Carolina -3.5 at NC State O/U 57

It was a difficult spot for NC State quarterback Brandon Mitchell – miss five games and return for a road tilt at Florida State. Mitchell finished 17-of-33 for 128 yards and two interceptions but the Wolf Pack are confident the offense will produce better results this week at home against rival North Carolina. We tend to agree considering there is a 139 ypg of total defense difference between the Seminoles and Tar Heels.


"It makes it difficult for us, too," Doeren said. "That was kind of my point to the coaching staff, going into our bye week: now that we have (Mitchell) back, let's get better for six weeks at what we want to be. And hopefully we'll be able to do that."

"It's caused a little bit of problem but that's because we've played with two different

College Football Betting: Miami priced as big underdog at Florida State

Miami (FL) at Florida State -21.5

Miami responds to being over a three touchdown underdog to Florida State. The Hurricanes were 21-point home underdogs in last year's meeting; FSU won 33-20. Earlier this summer, the Golden Nugget GOY lines had the Seminoles as 8-point road chalk.


“When it comes to that, that’s out of our control. There’s nothing we can do about that, us being the underdogs by however many points or us being the underdogs period,” Miami running back Duke Johnson said. “The only thing we can do is go out there and play the game the way the coaches want us to play it and everything else will take care of itself. It doesn’t really matter whether someone respects us or not. We don’t care.

NFL Betting News: Houston to start Keenum vs. Indianapolis

Indianapolis -2.5 at Houston O/U 44.5

Looks like Houston's Case Keenum will start Sunday's game against Indianapolis. Keenum finished 15-of-25 for 271 yards and a touchdown in the Texans' Week 7 loss at Kansas City.


"Gary loves him,” a source told CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora last week. “He's extremely cerebral. He doesn't have that big arm but he fits their mold -- he can extend plays and get out of the way. He understands the system. That's going to be a tough environment but he shows a pulse and moves the team some, I bet he sticks with him after the [Week 8] bye.”

NFL Gambling News: Steelers' o-line goes from bad to worse

Pittsburgh at New England -7 O/U 44

An already bad offensive line got hit with a bunch of injuries as Pittsburgh lost three linemen during Sunday's loss at Oakland. Amazingly, the Steelers have gone 15 straight games without a 100-yard rusher.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: AFC News and Notes from Week 8

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 8.

Cincinnati Bengals
Andy Dalton looked really good last week against the Lions, and he looked every bit as good here on a five TD afternoon. The Jets played their corners in single coverage for most of the game, and Cincinnati’s receivers won the vast majority of those one-on-one battles. Cinci’s offensive line kept Dalton’s uniform clean for extended stretches, giving him time to throw. And Dalton showed great accuracy on his deep balls, something he hasn’t shown very often as a pro. It’s surely worth noting that Dalton only targeted AJ Green on seven of his thirty pass attempts, spreading the ball among his playmakers; something that’s been a problem for him in the past.

The Bengals have the requisite offensive playmakers to make a deep January run. Their defense was stellar; effectively blitzing (and rattling) Geno Smith, creating turnovers, Read more

CRIS Opener:
Cincinnati -7 O/U 40
CRIS Current: Cincinnati -4.5 O/U 41
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Cincinnati -9
Erin Rynning's Recommendation: Cincinnati

The Cincinnati Bengals were impressive last week in their 27-24 win at Detroit.  Off to a 5-2 start, I have to give credit to this team that I’ve doubted at times this season.  This is a well-rounded bunch that ranks 12th in total offense and 9th in total defense. Offensively they’ve found ways to both throw and run the football.  The tight end play continues to be a difference maker, which opens the sidelines for AJ Green.  Andy Dalton is starting to make better decisions with the football, although the Bengals could still be more efficient – 22nd in points scored, but 12th in total yards.  Of course, the offensive line has played sturdy football as well, as left Read more

Football Handicapping: MAC Totals, SMU, and NFL Correlated Parlays

10.25.2013     12:26 PM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Is there any bet in college football right now that is more of a “no brainer” than playing Mid-American Conference games under the total? There have been 22 MAC league games played heading into Saturday’s slate and the under has gone 17-5 for a winning percentage of 77.2%. The only team in this conference that has recorded more over results than under is Eastern Michigan whose horrendous defense (49.7 points allowed vs. MAC) has led them to a 3-0 O/U mark in league play. Akron, Central Michigan, Massachusetts, Miami (Ohio) and Northern Illinois all have yet to record a conference game over the total.

SMU has certainly had their troubles this season. They’re mostly beaten up by detractors for being a poor team but from a totals perspective right now, you have to love them. The staff of offensive “evil geniuses” that has been assembled in Dallas has given “over” backers the gift of five winning tickets in six tries and they are just beginning to hit stride. After struggling behind QB Garrett Gilbert for the majority of their first four games, the “Air Raid/Run & Shoot” combo scheme has cranked out 86 points and Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Detroit Lions

Dallas at Detroit
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Detroit -3 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Detroit -3 O/U 50.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Detroit -1.5
Brian Edwards' Recommendation: Detroit

A pair of NFC contenders will collide Sunday at Ford Field in Detroit, where the Lions will take on Dallas on FOX. Most betting shops have installed Detroit (4-3 straight up, 4-3 against the spread) as a three-point favorite (with a -120 price tag) with a total of 51.

Gamblers can take the Cowboys on the money line for a +145 payout (risk $100 to win $145). For first-half wagers, the Lions are favored by -1.5/-2 with a total of 26.

Dallas (4-3 SU, 6-1 ATS) has won back-to-back games, including its first road win. After smashing Washington 31-16 two weeks ago, the Cowboys won 17-3 at Philadelphia as three-point road underdogs.

The Dallas defense knocked Nick Foles out of the game with a concussion and then Read more
