SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stats Intelligence

Losses in college football last Saturday for #3, #6, #7, #9, #11, #15, and #22. The linescores…

#5 Florida State (-4) 51, #3 Clemson 14

Fla-State: 566 yards, 7.8 per-play, 1 turnovers, 75% third downs

Clemson: 326 yards, 3.8 per-play, 4 turnovers, 33% third downs

(If you weren’t watching at the beginning…ABC televised uniformed Clemson players getting into buses outside one end of the stadium…riding in those buses around the stadium with a dramatic police escort to the other end…getting out of the buses…emphatically lining up to touch their lucky rock…sprinting onto the field in front of fireworks, balloons, and a zillion screaming fans…as a prelude to a 51-14 mega-debacle.)

Mississippi (+10) 27, #6 LSU 24

LSU: 388 yards, 5.7 per-play, 3 turnovers, 45% third downs

Miss: 522 yards, 6.3 per-play, 2 turnovers, 61% third downs

(Often in upsets, you see Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Syracuse Orange at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Syracuse at Georgia Tech
Saturday, 9:30 am PT - ESPN Game Plan
CRIS Opener:
Georgia Tech -7 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Georgia Tech -7 (-120) O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Georgia Tech -11.5
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Georgia Tech

Pretty good situational play here on the home side as Georgia Tech, off three straight losses, returns home to face ACC newbie Syracuse. The Yellow Jackets ran into a tough stretch of games with Virginia Tech (6-1) and Miami (6-0) followed by a brutal travel spot at BYU. Note that those three teams all reside in the top 26 nationally in total defense and were well versed in what to expect from Tech's offense (BYU played in Atlanta last season). And despite how unique and difficult it is to prepare for Georgia Tech's offense, strong, well-coached defenses have proved able to contain it. I'm not sure we get that with Syracuse who allowed 48 against Northwestern and Read more

College Football Betting Preview: LSU Tigers at Ole Miss Rebels

LSU at Mississippi
Saturday, 4 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
LSU -9.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: LSU -10 O/U 60
Rob Veno's Power Rating: LSU -5
Brent Crow's Recommendation: LSU

Last week saw Ole Miss play Texas A&M in one of the best games of the year in the SEC, with the Aggies coming out on top, 41-38. Ole Miss performed admirably in taking the Aggies down to the final horn, but they ran out of manpower in the end, especially on defense. While I watched the game, I noted that the Rebels were losing players left and right on defense, and that plus the physicality of the game would make it tough on them this week. Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze has confirmed what I saw this week in several interviews.

"In the fourth quarter, we had only one personnel grouping that we could get on the field and kind of lost all the things we had planned in our spy techniques - we just didn't have any of Read more

College Football Betting: SEC News and Notes - Week 7

10.17.2013     12:37 PM     Alatex Sports     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week saw some shake up in the SEC East standings with Georgia falling to Missouri and Florida losing at LSU for their first conference losses. Georgia had been in the driver’s seat to win the East, but they, Florida, and South Carolina are now all behind the new leader and only remaining unbeaten, Missouri. The Tigers may not remain unbeaten, however, as they lost quarterback James Franklin to a separated shoulder for at least 3-4 weeks and will host Florida this week with a freshman under center. Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Kentucky remain winless to make up the rest of the East standings.

In the West, Alabama took care of Kentucky, 48-7, to keep its place at the top of the standings and remain the only unbeaten team. LSU, Auburn, and Texas A&M all have one loss and are behind the Tide while Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Arkansas bring up the rear.

Here are my power rankings for the entire conference.

1. Alabama - The Tide looked pretty bad in the first half against Kentucky yet still were never in doubt of winning. They finally quit fumbling and dropping passes in the second half and wound up with an unimpressive 48-7 Read more

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Notre Dame Fighting Irish

USC at Notre Dame
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - NBC
CRIS Opener:
Notre Dame pk O/U 52
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -3 O/U 51
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Notre Dame -4.5
Brian Edwards' Recommendation: Notre Dame

The stakes are usually much higher when Notre Dame and USC collide on the gridiron. When these bitter rivals met last season, the Trojans had a chance to deny the Fighting Irish a trip to the BCS Championship Game.

This time around, however, we have a pair of unranked teams with two losses apiece.

Nevertheless, games all pay the same when it comes to sports wagering. As of late Thursday morning, most books had Notre Dame (4-2 SU, 1-4-1 ATS) favored by three with a total of 50.5.

Gamblers can back the Trojans to win outright for a +130 return (risk $100 to win $130). For first-half bets, Notre Dame is a one-point chalk with a total of 25.

Brian Kelly’s team had Read more

Florida State at Clemson
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -3 O/U 63
CRIS Current: Florida State -3 O/U 63.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -1
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Clemson

Stakes are high here as ACC Atlantic Division and berth in the ACC Championship Game are both probably on the line. As mentioned in the Sportsmemo blog section earlier this week, Clemson has been a money making machine going 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. There is a measure of atonement seeking by the Tigers in this one after their total second half collapse last season. Holding a 28-14 lead, Clemson allowed FSU touchdowns on five consecutive drives which resulted in a 35-3 spurt that decided the game. Clemson junior DE Vic Beasely stated "Last year they got us, but I feel like we should have won. We're looking for payback". There’s no doubt that loss sits badly with them so Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles

Dallas at Philadelphia
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener:
Philadelphia ok O/U 56
CRIS Current: Philadelphia -3 (ev) O/U 54.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Philadelphia -1
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: Over

This NFC East matchup has the potential for both offenses to shine. Philadelphia’s up-tempo attack under Chip Kelly has looked very good in back-to-back games with Nick Foles at the controls instead of the injured Michael Vick. Foles has been sharp (38-of-56, 68%, 5-0 TD-INT) in leading the offense to 36 and 31 points in the last two games. I liked that Philadelphia was able to successfully establish the run last week with LeSean McCoy carrying the rock for 116 yards rushing. That success running the football could continue this week because Dallas is severely banged up along the defensive line. The Cowboys are going to be without Pro Bowl DE DeMarcus Ware who was injured with a quad strain last week against Read more

College Football Betting Preview: UCLA Bruins at Stanford Cardinal

Rob Veno's Power Rating: Stanford -6.5
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: UCLA

The PAC-12 is positively loaded this year, #2 in the country behind only the mighty SEC in conference strength according to my numbers.  Saturday’s Stanford vs. UCLA showdown gives us a clear example of how good this conference really is!  Remember, neither squad was the preseason favorite to win their respective divisions (USC and Oregon), and the trio of Oregon State, Washington and Arizona State are all capable of beating anyone in the league on any given Saturday.   So while Stanford and UCLA provide a battle of Top 15 teams for ABC on Saturday, even the winner of this matchup is not going to have an easy task of holding on to that lofty rankings throughout the course of the Read more

NFL Betting News and Notes - Week 6

The Houston Texans Stand Alone

There are no more undefeated ATS teams in the NFL after Week 6 and there is only one team that is still winless – the Houston Texans who were ambushed at home by the St. Louis Rams in a 38-13 loss. The New York Giants, Jacksonville and Pittsburgh all snapped their winless ATS starts but Houston now stands alone as the only team in the league to not cash a ticket for their betting supporters this season. There was reason to be concerned prior to Sunday’s game but now it’s safe to say the Texans are in full on crisis mode. Matt Schaub has lost his confidence and his problems are no longer physical, but mental. He has an awful 8-9 TD-INT ratio and now is prone to making mistakes and bad decisions with the football. The offense has sputtered in the red zone all season long with the Texans converting red zone opportunities into TDs just 47.3% of the time.
 
The Houston defense hasn’t been as stout as they’ve been in the past yielding 29.5 points per game but they are still ranked 1st in the league in total yards and passing yards allowed which tells you that a lack of ball security has Read more
