NFL Handicapping: Pace Factor through Week 2

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

With all the talk about teams trying to speed up their pace this year, I thought it might be a good idea to make an effort to monitor NFL pace as manageably as possible. A quick and dirty way to do that is to count up all the plays for each team from the boxscores (including possession-enders like field goals, punts, and turnovers), then look at the full game totals. Do that for a few weeks…and you can tell the fast from the slow just by their averages, medians, and how the numbers cluster.

I know there are ways to estimate individual offenses differently. The problem with that for me is that you have to dig into the play-by-play to figure out which penalties were offensive and which were defensive. Start doing that for every single game (while also tinkering on the side with college games), and it becomes time prohibitive. Current boxscores only show total penalties. Using full game totals includes those, and eventually helps paint the picture for you well enough.

NFL Handicpaping: Week 2 Betting and Statistical Recap

Let’s run the numbers…

(If you’re new to the site, “Drive Points” are those scored on drives of 60 yards or more. “Stat Score” is an estimate of what the final score should have been based only on rushing and passing yardage. The formula for that is 2 times rushing yardage…plus passing yardage…times 0.67…divided by 15. Sloppiness is a quickfire stat to measure execution…the formula is 5 times giveaways plus the number of incomplete passes…lower is better because you want to avoid sloppiness)

San Diego 33 (+7.5), Philadelphia 30

S-Diego: 539 yards, 6.8 per-play, 2 turnovers, 67% third downs

Philadel: 511 yards, 8.7 per-play, 1 turnovers, 45% third downs

(Whoever had the ball last was going to win, because both offenses were getting enough YPP at will to move the ball into scoring position. First glaring sign of Philly’s defensive weaknesses this Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NFC News and Notes from Week 1

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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: NFC Tidbits from Week 1.

Chicago Bears – Sure, the Bears didn't make the playoffs last year, but they won ten games and were one of the league's better teams. This defense can still make plenty of big plays, as evidenced by Charles Tillman's huge game and their complete domination against the run here. Jay Cutler did a great job finding open receivers on third and long. He connected on a pair of third and longs into very tight windows on Chicago's first touchdown drive. The revamped offensive line didn't do much for run blocking, but they gave Cutler all the time he needed all afternoon.

Cutler can still scramble out of pressure and his mobility created several opportunities that wouldn't have been there otherwise. But Cutler's propensity for making mistakes at crucial times was on display here, a horrible pass on first down as the Bears were driving in the fourth quarter. However, he made the most of his next Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: Cincinnati Bengals at Chicago Bears

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 Preseason Betting: Browns may play starters some vs. Bears

Cleveland -2.5 at Chicago O/U 39.5

Following last week's dismal showing vs. Indianapolis, Cleveland head coach Rob Chudzinksi said the starters could see time in the team's preseason finale. It may have been just a knee-jerk reaction however as Chudzinksi has yet to commit to anything. The Bears meanwhile are not expecting to play any starters hence the market move from Chicago -2.5 to Cleveland -2.5.


"We’re going to approach this next game that those guys are going to play,'' he said. "And then I’ll make that determination later in the week as it goes on.”

“We’re going to practice all three days,” Trestman said. “We’ll have a shorter practice on Wednesday, but we’re

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Chicago Bears at Oakland Raiders

Chicago at Oakland +3.5 O/U 38
Recommendation: Oakland


My very first thought process for any preseason football game involves the favorite, particularly favorites of more than a field goal like Chicago is tonight.  Why is the team favored?  Do they deserve to be favored by more than a field goal?  In this instance, my question to myself was are the Bears legitimate favorites this evening?  My answer?  No way!
The Bears offense scored ten points in their preseason opener and struggled throughout trying to move the football in their first game running Marc Trestman/Aaron Kromer’s brand new offense.   Chicago had 16 first downs, 291 total yards on 14 drives, averaging a well-below-average 4.9 yards per play.

Last week, the Bears hung 33 points on the Chargers.  But don’t be fooled by that final score!  The Bears offense was downright lousy again: 185 total yards, only 13 first downs and a lowly 3.4 yards per play Read more

NFL Preseason Betting Update: Bears to spread the wealth vs. Raiders

08.22.2013     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Chicago -3.5 at Oakland O/U 38

Update on Chicago's game plan for tomorrow's game at Oakland. Apparently everyone is making a stink about the Cutler/Marshall lovefest so expect more people to get involved in the offense. The Bears however don't plan on showing much in terms of formations and reportedly put together a "limited game plan."


"I mean you guys are hitting the panic button after two preseason games and 30 plays," Cutler said. "Yeah, we're gonna spread it around. We can't just throw to Brandon and give the ball to [running back] Matt [Forte]. We've got to find ways to get other guys involved."

NFL Preseason Betting: Chicago's Trestman says starters will play first half vs. Oakland

Chicago -3.5 at Oakland O/U 38.5

Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman said that his starters will play at least a half during Friday's preseason tilt at Oakland.


"We've seen enough of the top guys, but we haven't seen them together against competition other than the Chicago Bears," said coach Marc Trestman. "It's important that they get out and from a conditioning aspect, from a reps standpoint, from playing through more adversity and more success, just get them a chance to play together."

"We'll game plan with structure that is designed to attack, but not designed to give up formations and personnel groupings that we may use down the road," Trestman said. "That's about as frank as I could be. [It will be] simpler than what we may do during the season but enough to be able to create

NFL Preseason Handicapping: Bears still adjusting to Trestman

San Diego at Chicago -6 O/U 38

Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense continue to adjust on the fly to first-year head coach Marc Trestman.


‘‘We’re just trying to get plays in,’’ Cutler said. ‘‘We’re just trying to rep plays and see what they look like. We’re not really worried about the defense that we’re going against or trying to pair up a certain play with the defense.

‘‘There are some plays that we’re running that normally you wouldn’t want to run against that coverage, or that defense, or that front. There’s ups and downs. Some of the plays look good. Some of the plays not so good. It’s just dealing with those and coming back and bouncing back for the next play.’’
