Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Playoff bound, but Super Bowl XLVIII bound?

12.23.2013     07:23 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last year, heading into Week 17, Atlanta was the team to beat in the NFC, having already clinched homefield advantage with their 13-2 (at the time) record.  Washington was the hottest team in the conference and Green Bay was considered very live for the title, with Aaron Rodgers just one year removed from his Super Bowl ring.  In the AFC, the playoff were expected to be an eventual battle between the Patriots and Broncos, with the other four teams (Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston and Indy) largely considered to be fodder for the elites; non-factors.

What happened? A San Francisco-Baltimore Super Bowl, won by the Ravens; their third straight postseason win as an underdog.  Let’s not forget that Baltimore entered the playoffs in the midst of a late season 1-4 SU and ATS skid; a team that NOBODY expected to make noise in January and February.

In 2011, in the NFC, Green Bay was the unbeatable juggernaut with a 15-1 record as the defending champs, and the Saints weren’t far behind, just one year removed from a Drew Brees Super Bowl ring.  Meanwhile, the Giants were on the outside of the playoff picture, needing to beat Dallas just to get Read more

College Football Handicapping: Texas wants to win one for Mack

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas vs. Oregon -13.5 O/U 67

Win won for the Mackster is what Texas is saying following the resignation of Texas head coach Mack Brown. Interesting that the players claim the announcement caught them off guard.


"It was definitely shocking," defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat said. "Just the timing of it, we didn't expect it. You always hear things floating around, always hear rumors, but you never really pay attention to it until something happens.

"It really upset us when it happened. He made his decision and he's still coaching for this game, so we've got to get ready for this."

"We love Coach Brown," safety Adrian Phillips said. "We're just going to fight with Coach Brown to the last straw, and that'll be against Oregon. We've got to send him out

NFL Gambling Preview: Cleveland Browns at New York Jets

Cleveland at New York Jets
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
New York -1 O/U 39.5
CRIS Current: New York -2.5 O/U 40
Rob Veno's Power Rating: New York -3.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: New York

The Browns are 1-8 since Brian Hoyer got hurt, suffering yet another heartbreak in a season full of them in last week’s loss to the Bears; their fifth consecutive defeat.  Despite scoring two defensive touchdowns, and entering the fourth quarter with the lead for the third straight week, the Browns defense wilted during crunch time and their offense couldn’t move the football when it mattered most. 

The Browns haven’t won on the road since their Week 3 victory at Minnesota, and they’re priced here as a team that likely needs to win the game in order to cover the pointspread.  To make matters even worse, the injury bug continues to bite, leaving pro bowl Read more

Las Vegas Bowl Betting Preview: USC Trojans vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

USC vs. Fresno State
Las Vegas Bowl
December 21, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
USC -4.5 O/U 62
CRIS Current: USC -6 O/U 63
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -5.5
Rob Veno's Recommendation: USC -3.5 1st half

When the bowl pairings were announced a couple of Sundays ago, this matchup was one where the motivational angle of each team was questioned. Fresno State went from BCS buster three weeks ago to this late December, mid-afternoon appearance while the Trojans received this bid on the heels of the resignation of beloved interim head coach Ed Orgeron. To have the early handicapping concern that this game may be anti-climactic for both of these teams was legitimate but all signs currently point to Fresno State and USC having regrouped and now focused on this game.

For the Bulldogs, record setting senior quarterback Derek Carr quoted the team mantra heading into this contest Read more

NFL Handicapping: Pace Factor heading into Week 15

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

If you’re new to the blog, these are per-game averages in the sum of total plays + penalties + field goal attempts + punts for games involving each team. Buffalo’s games have had the most plays at 167.4 by my count, even faster paced than the “Oregon-style” Philadelphia Eagles at 166.8. Of course, Buffalo also has a first-year coach that just came up from the college level. The slowest paced team by this measure is Carolina, with 146.0 in their games on average. Hasn’t that pace helped the defense drive while encouraging Cam Newton to play relatively mistake-free?

The scale…

Helter Skelter (159 and up)

Buffalo 167.4

Philadelphia 166.8

Cleveland 165.6

Denver 163.6

New England 163.0

Baltimore 161.7

Kansas City 159.4
 
Faster Than Average (156-158)

CRIS Opener:
Buffalo -1.5 O/U 54

An interesting MAC vs. Mountain West matchup will take place on the blue turf in Boise when the Buffalo Bulls (8-4) face the San Diego State Aztecs (7-5). Buffalo was a surprise this season jumping from a dismal 4-8 in 2012 to 8-4. This will mark the program’s second-ever bowl appearance – they lost to UConn by 18 in 2009. Buffalo head coach Jeff Quinn’s quote indicates that his team is very excited for this opportunity:

“It's been four years in the making. We talked about setting our goals towards being a football program that has a November and December tradition. And to be invited to a bowl game when we knew there were more bowl eligible Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Charlotte Bobcats at Toronto Raptors

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Charlotte +6.5 at Toronto O/U 190.5
Recommendation: Charlotte


After two years of absolute ineptitude (28-120 SU in ’12 and ’13), the Bobcats have a competitive team this year thanks to the emergence of point guard Kemba Walker and the offseason addition of low post force Al Jefferson.  Charlotte’s defensive minded first year head coach Steve Clifford has made an enormous difference as well.  Last year, the Bobcats ranked dead last in the NBA in defensive efficiency, allowing 108.9 points per 100 possessions.  This year, they’ve improved enough to rank #4 in the entire league in defensive efficiency, allowing just 97.1 points per 100 possessions.

That’s a dramatic defensive turnaround, by far the biggest in the NBA this year.  As a result of that improved defense, the Bobcats have morphed from bottom feeders into money winners.  And Charlotte’s single best role has been as a road underdog.  The opened the season Read more

College Football Gambling: Missouri still feels disrespected

Oklahoma State vs. Missouri -1 O/U 60.5

Missouri is using the disrespect card heading into its Cotton Bowl matchup against Oklahoma State.


“We still have one of the best offenses in the nation, and I’ll believe that until someone tells me otherwise,” left tackle Justin Britt said minutes after a 59-42 loss that cost Mizzou an SEC title and a spot in the BCS national championship game. “You know, the story ain’t over. There’s still stuff to be written.”

“We’re still not getting respected, man,” center Evan Boehm said in that otherwise quiet locker room. “We moved the ball on an Auburn team that Alabama had trouble moving the ball (against). If we’re not getting respected after this game, even though

Pittsburgh vs. Bowling Green
Little Caesars - Detroit, Mich.
Thursday, December 26, 3 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Bowling Green -5.5 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Bowling Green -5 O/U 50
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Bowling Green -2

The Little Caesars Bowl represents a return to college football action after a brief day of rest for Christmas. It will showcase Pitt (6-6, ACC) and Bowling Green (10-3, MAC) doing battle at Ford Field in Detroit and we’ll examine how these teams got to be where they are and how they stack up.

Pitt was no guarantee to even make a bowl after their Jekyll and Hyde season. Inconsistent is probably the best way to describe this team and it’s easy to understand when you step back and look at them. They had to replace their starting quarterback, their leading rusher, and their best receiver to start the year couple with their transition to the ACC. They opened the year with a Read more

College Football Handicapping: Michigan's Gardner has yet to practice for bowl

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan vs. Kansas State -3.5 O/U 55.5

Michigan quarterback Devin Gardner (turf toe) has yet to practice as the team prepares for their Buffalo Wild Wings matchup against Kansas State. It sounds as if he will play, especially considering Gardner's backup, Shane Morris, has attempted only nine passes. Gardner caught a lot of flak this season but closed the season strong with a 451 yard, 4 TD, 0 INT performance against Ohio State.


“He’s thrown the ball a little bit, but we haven’t done a whole lot,” Michigan coach Brady Hoke said Monday. “(We) don’t want to get him out there too soon. It’s more than anything making sure Read more
