College Football Handicapping: ACC Stat Day

07.31.2013     07:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

The ACC has expanded this year, with Syracuse and Pittsburgh moving over from the Big East. So, as we run through each category, I’ve included with those two teams did in the Big East last season. It’s tempting to say that you have to make mental adjustments because the Big East was worse than the ACC. But, there was so much mediocre (or worse) play in the ACC last year…that there may not have been much of a difference.

Louisville and Syracuse obviously did the Big East proud in bowls last year. There were two heads-up meetings between the Big East and ACC. Rutgers and Virginia Tech went overtime in one of the worst bowl games ever played. Cincinnati needed a few miracles to beat Duke by 14 points (they were about to lose straight up as 9-point favorites in the final minutes)…which is a strike against the Big East. Maybe dock the stats of Syracuse and Pittsburgh a smidge.

Below is the written analysis Teddy provided to his clients with last year's O/U Win Report. He went 4-0-1 with his recommendations.


2012 NFL Season Win Total Report: Part 1

All lines in this report are current as of 10 AM Pacific on Tuesday, July 31st.  Teams are listed in alphabetical order.  I used seven offshore sports books (Pinnacle, Bookmaker, Greek, Bovada, Grande, ABC Islands and WSEX ) as fodder for my ‘best available current line’, but there’s no reason to think that you won’t be able to find a better number elsewhere – line shoppers are routinely rewarded in the Over-Under win total marketplace. 

Each and every one of these numbers is also available at the sportsbooks here in Las Vegas, but I used the offshore numbers in this report knowing that many clients don’t have access to the Vegas numbers.  It is VERY important to get the win totals posted on this report – a half game can make an enormous difference,

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Handicapping the best and worst NFL secondaries

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The pecking order for NFL quarterbacks is well established.  Most of the best quarterbacks play for the best teams.  Peyton Manning in Denver, Eli Manning in New York, Tom Brady in New England, Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, Ben Roethlisberger in Pittsburgh, Drew Brees in New Orleans and Joe Flacco in Baltimore all wear Super Bowl rings.  All seven guys play for teams that are perennial playoff teams, and all seven of those squads are lined at 8.5 wins or higher again this year.

The next grouping of quarterbacks isn’t as easy to establish.  I’d probably put the likes of Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub, Tony Romo, Philip Rivers and Colin Kaepernick in this grouping; and I wouldn’t argue with anyone who wanted to include Matthew Stafford, Jay Cutler, Cam Newton or Andrew Luck.  Just about every one of those quarterbacks also plays for a playoff contending team.

The very bottom of the pecking order is also very easy to establish.  On my list, I’d include Christian Ponder in Minnesota, Brandon Weeden in Cleveland, Mark Sanchez in New York, Jake Locker in Tennessee, Blaine Gabbert or Chad Read more

College Football Handicapping: Big XII Stat Day

Continuing our series of “stat day” summaries to mirror “media day” college football coverage. If this is the first one of these you’ve read. We’re looking at:

2012 Yards-Per-Play (Offense and Defense)

2012 Turnovers (Offense and Defense)

2012 Third Down Conversions (Offense and Defense)

2013 Returning Starters

The stats are for CONFERENCE action ONLY, so we don’t get pollution from widely varied non-conference schedules. I gathered them at cfbstats.com. The returning starter data was pulled from the Athlon publication, and may be a little outdated given recent arrests, injuries, suspensions, etc…

I’ve tried to link stats together in a way that helps paint a picture for each team. We start by looking at offenses…with an eye on per-play production within a successful risk/reward approach. Who can move the ball while protecting it? Who couldn’t move the ball? Who couldn’t protect Read more

College Football Handicapping: SEC Stat Day

The SEC has already had its set of “Media Days” last week. Didn’t hear much talk about key stats from last year. The media begged coaches to trash talk each other or Urban Meyer. They hoped Johnny Manziel would say or do something inappropriate…then hoped somebody else would comment on what a brat Manziel is. They talked about Texas A&M’s great offense without acknowledging that Alabama’s offense was actually better on a per play basis while committing fewer turnovers in league action.

Let’s rectify that, and paint a picture of what the SEC looked like top-to-bottom last year. The stats you see below are from conference games only…which means eight games for everyone but nine for Alabama and Georgia (who met in the SEC Championship). The numbers are gathered from cfbstats.com, which is a great site if you’re trying to dig up data in a boatload of categories.

We start with offenses, focusing on yards-per-play and giveaways…which is Read more

College Football Handicapping: Big 10 Stat Day

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

All the major college football conferences are having “media” days (or two, or three). Since little of the media coverage coming out of those days involves stats…I’ll try to put together some “stat days” between now and the start of the season. The Big 10 is under the spotlight at the moment all over the internet. So, let’s start there.

First…a review of Big 10 offenses last year, focusing on the basic fundamentals of moving the ball and protecting it. Remember that there are now 12 teams in the Big 10. They’re ranked immediately below by yards-per-play on offense in conference play ONLY to help weed out the goofy stuff that happens against widely variant non-league schedules. That means 8 games for everybody but Wisconsin and Nebraska. They played each other in the Big 10 Championship game, so their numbers are pulled from a 9-game sampling. These are the numbers as reported by the college football stats site cfstats.com

College Football Betting: Texas Tech brings in yet another first-year defensive coordinator

07.25.2013     12:36 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Amazingly, Texas Tech is on its fifth defensive coordinator in five years. Andin  each of those seasons there was a change in overall philosophy with the 4-3, 3-4, and 4-2-5 all being implemented at one time or another. This year, under first-year DC Matt Wallerstedt, TTU will go back to the well with the 3-4.


“It’s gotten easier every year,” Hyder said. “It’s really about having blind faith. You’ve got to realize these coaches that are coming in want the best for you. They’re going to put a defense in place and you just roll with it.

We’ll start with the Interleague game, then take everything else in rotation order…

*Oh no they DIDN’T! Once again, it looked like the Dodgers were finally going to lose a game. They were down 3-2 in the ninth…and hadn’t scored a run in about 90 minutes. A rally to tie it in the ninth forced extra innings…then the Dodgers scored FIVE in the tenth inning to win 8-3. That pushes them to 6-0 since the ASB, and runs their longterm streak to 23-5 the last 28 games. Note that Puig scored the tying run in the ninth with two outs. He was on first after a walk (hey, he can walk!). He ran aggressively on a single to center…the CF made an error…and Puig came all the way around to score. Then he homered in the tenth to help build on what had become a 5-3 lead. The “first half” score was 2-2, with Nolasco throwing four scoreless before tiring a bit. His pitching line is now 0-3-1-2 as a Dodger, with an average and median of Read more

Canadian Football League Week 4 Betting Recap

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here is my recap of Week 4 in the Canadian Football League as I provide a quick hitter, team-by-team analysis...

Montreal Alouettes (1-3 SU/ATS)
Montreal’s offense finally showed up but the problem was it was only for a quarter! Having put up just 18 points on offense in their two prior games, the Alouettes scored 24 points in the first quarter to take a 24-0 lead against Calgary. They then proceeded to score three points the rest of the game, coughing up the lead and losing 38-27 as 7-point road underdogs – a performance that certainly made Montreal bettors nauseous. The defense, which had been solid in their first three games, was shredded both against the run and pass and special teams played a major role in the loss. Montreal’s Noel Devine looked to have a sure kickoff return touchdown only to have Calgary’s Fred Bennett track him down and punch the football out of his arms. Calgary recovered it in the end zone for a game changing touchback. A touchdown there would have given Montreal the lead back but instead Calgary used it to further their momentum and put the game away. The Alouettes are quickly becoming a comedy of Read more
