College Football Gambling Update: Louisville remains hottest bet in town

Looks like oddsmakers and bettors remain divided on their opinion of the Louisville Cardinals.



College Football Handicapping: Betting markets continue to hammer Louisville Cardinals

10.18.2016     06:24 AM     View Original Blog

Ever since beating Charlotte 70-14 in Week 1, Louisville has been one of the most popular teams in the betting markets. Just take a look at the opening and closing numbers of their last six games. On average, Louisville has been bet over 4 points per game. It reminds us a little of last year's Clemson team that burst on to the scene with a bunch of impressive early season wins and covers Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Washington State Cougars at Oregon State Beavers

Washington State at Oregon State
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Washington State -15.5 O/U 65.5
CRIS Current: Washington State -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Oregon State

My clients and I cashed in betting against Washington State as road chalk last week in a closer-than-expected non-covering win at Arizona State.  And there’s absolutely no reason to think that the Cougs are being priced appropriately as double-digit road favorites as they travel to Corvallis on Saturday night.

This is the wrong price range for Washington State in a very hostile road environment.  It’s also the wrong pointspread range for an Oregon State team that has been getting killed on the highway, but consistently playing competitive football at Reser Stadium.

There’s been one very consistent facet of Mike Leach coached teams, dating back to his tenure at Texas Tech – they have letdowns, not a coach who’s prone to guiding his team to extended winning streaks.  In his fifth season at Washington State, the Cougars current five game winning streak is the longest Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Cincinnati Bearcats at Temple Owls

Cincinnati at Temple
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
Temple -8 O/U 53.5
CRIS Current: Temple -7 O/U 53.5
Recommendation: Over

Temple’s offense has come on strong in recent games which has played a pivotal role in its current 5-2 SU, 7-0 ATS streak. Quarterback Phillip Walker can still be prone to turnovers at times but he’s thrown 11 touchdowns to seven interceptions in Temple’s last nine games. Meanwhile, the ground attack, led by running backs Ryquell Armstead and Jahad Thomas, has been productive at 170 ypg and 4.5 ypc. Cincinnati’s defense has been a subpar unit for much of the campaign giving up 5.5 yards per play and they’ve yielded 40+ points to better offensive foes like South Florida and Houston as well as 504 total yards to Purdue. I expect Temple’s offense which has scored 27+ points in seven straight games to have another solid day on the ground and with play action pass against this suspect Cinci defense.

Cincinnati’s offense seemed to get a boost of energy and momentum last week when former starter Gunner Kiel got his first Read more

College Football Gambling: Stanford makes switch at quarterback

10.26.2016     11:19 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With a passing game that is averaging only 166 ypg and a 4 TD-to-7 INT ratio, the Stanford Cardinal have announced a switch at quarterback. Keller Chryst (18 attempts YTD) will take over for Ryan Burns. This week's opponent, Arizona, offers an opportunity for Stanford to produce something in the passing game. The Wildcats rank in the bottom third of the PAC-12 in most pass defense categories.

”I hate to get to this point,” Shaw said. ”But it’s the best thing for this offense. We need more production at that position. It’s our challenge to support Keller.”

College Football Betting Preview: Penn State Nittany Lions at Purdue Boilermakers

Penn State at Purdue
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener:
Penn State -13.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Penn State -12.5 O/U 56.5
Recommendation: Purdue

Since getting blown out against Maryland 50-7, Purdue has rallied back with three straight solid performances. The Boilermakers managed to fire back with a win over Illinois, hung 500 yards on Iowa, and battled toe-to-toe with Nebraska for three quarters before eventually wearing down. All three performances weren't without plenty of hiccups, particularly Purdue's inability to run the football against the Hawkeyes and Cornhuskers (71 yards combined), but the attitude remains positive with this club following the departure of head coach Darrell Hazell.

And they certainly catch Penn State at a good time following its big win over Ohio State. You give the Nittany Lions credit for the victory but they were still outgained by 137 yards. Overall, the Nittany Lions' body of work isn't all that impressive. They were totally outclassed by Michigan and barely slipped past Minnesota 29-26 despite statistically dominating the game. And in the in over Read more

College Football Betting News: Oklahoma's defense sinks to all-time low

10.26.2016     09:26 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
A year removed from allowing 4.8 yards per play, Oklahoma's defense has taken a big step back. Through seven games, the Sooners have surrendered 6.5 yards per play on three occasions including last week's obscene 7.83 ypp (854 total yards) against Texas Tech. Mike Stoops had this to say following the "win."

“We had no control,” Stoops said. “At no time did we feel good in any aspect of what we were doing. Pressures weren’t good enough. Coverage wasn’t good enough. Making them pull it down and run wasn’t good enough. There was nothing good.

“We won. Our offense did an incredible job to help us but it hurts when you don’t hold up your end of the deal in any game. We’ve got to look at a lot of things. It’s like I said. It’s unacceptable at so many levels, I can’t even begin to try to define it to you all.”

“I don’t know,” Stoops said.

College Football Betting Preview: Boston College Eagles at NC State Wolfpack

Boston College at NC State
Saturday, 9:30 am PT
CRIS Opener:
NC State -14.5 O/U 49.5
CRIS Current: NC State -16 O/U 49.5
Recommendation: NC State

Boston College is likely thankful that this Saturday’s opponent neither has a dual threat quarterback nor do they run an up-tempo system. Last week the Eagles saw their third opponent this season with those traits and their defense was again hammered as Syracuse gained 532 total yards. Combined, Eric Dungey and Syracuse, Deshaun Watson and Clemson and Jerod Evans and Virginia Tech have gained a total of 1,511 yards and scored 133 points. Ryan Finley and the NC State Wolfpack don’t have the threat of the zone read option and they don’t go as fast as the previously mentioned teams which philosophically suits the Boston College defensive assets better. Relying upon their ground game led by Matt Dayes and the passing of Finley, NC State is averaging 5.6 yards per play which is equal to Clemson and a shade better than Syracuse’s 5.5.       

The Wolpack defense takes a monumental step down in Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Baylor Bears at Texas Longhorns

Baylor at Texas
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Baylor -2.5 O/U 70
CRIS Current: Baylor -3 O/U 69
Recommendation: Over

After going under the total in two straight games, I look for Texas' beleaguered defense to be exposed yet again when they face Baylor on Saturday. It's been a constant theme this season that capable offenses can move the ball at will against the Longhorns. Over a three-game swatch against California, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma, UT allowed 1,734 yards at a startling 7.3 yards per play.

Perhaps more important to this handicapper is how flawed Baylor's defensive numbers are. The Bears' schedule comes up ultra-light with games against Northwestern State, SMU, Rice, Oklahoma State, Iowa State, and Kansas. There is one game in particular that stands out as alarming and that's what Iowa State was able to do with the football against the Bears a few weeks back. The Cyclones posted arguably their best offensive showing of the year with 204 yards on the ground and 261 through the air. All told, ISU averaged over 6 yards per play.

Texas has had no trouble moving Read more
