College Football Betting: Oklahoma chooses Knight over Bell for starting QB gig

08.23.2013     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The rumors were true. Oklahoma is going with quarterback redshirt freshman Trevor Knight for Week 1's tilt against UL-Monroe. Knight, who has never taken a college snap, earned the job over junior Blake Bell. Considering Bob Stoops' history with quarterbacks, we're more than willing to give him the benefit of the doubt on his decision. There were questions on whether or not Bell could be efficient enough in the passing game despite his running ability. Back in 2009, freshman Landry Jones was thrust into the starting job when Sam Bradford suffered multiple injuries. It was one of OU's worst seasons under Stoops (8-5 SU, 4-8 ATS).


"Both Trevor and Blake have competed hard and both will be ready to play against Louisiana-Monroe," Stoops said in a statement. "Like every other position on our team, I expect them both to continue to compete for the starting job."

"We're very aware that these guys are all capable of moving around with the ball more than maybe some we've had," Stoops said Tuesday. "If that happens,

College Football Handicapping: Oklahoma State latest to commit to two-QB system

08.23.2013     06:45 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oklahoma State announced it will play two quarterbacks in Week 1's game against Mississippi State (at Houston). According to head coach Mike Gundy having a "no. 1" would be ideal if one were significantly better than the other. The problem is Clint Chelf (1,588 yards, 15 TDs, 6 INTs) and JW Walsh (1,564 yards, 13 TDs, 3 INTs) are both fairly even in terms of ability/results at this point.


"We're going to play both guys," Gundy said, referring to senior Clint Chelf and sophomore J.W. Walsh.

"That hasn't changed since the spring. Both quarterbacks have improved and I don't really know any other way to say it. It's something I've said for the last five months is both guys are doing a good job and we're glad we have them and they'll both get a chance to play."

"I don't like two-quarterback systems if we have one that's better than the other or one that's more experienced," Gundy said.

"Each year is different. Now we have two quarterbacks who

NCAA Football Handicapping: Cal's Dykes goes with true frosh quarterback

08.22.2013     01:49 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Considering the schedule (daunting) and the state of the program (not good), it shouldn't come as a shock to see Cal first-year head coach Sonny Dykes with an eye on the future and tab true freshman Jared Goff as the team’s Week 1 starter against Northwestern. While at Louisiana Tech, Dykes turned Colby Cameron into a great quarterback – though it didn't happen overnight. Cameron struggled as sophomore, took over as starter midway through his junior season, and of course set the world on fire with 4,100 yards and a 31-5 TD/INT ratio last year.


"We have had a fiercely-contested competition for our starting quarterback position," Dykes said in a statement. "It's important to name a starter and give them the reps they need to be prepared to play. We feel that right now Jared Goff gives us the best chance to be successful as a team, but we are very fortunate to have three outstanding quarterbacks we feel we can be successful with."

College Football Handicapping: The impact returning starters has on the betting markets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Yesterday I talked about Phil Steele's impact on the betting markets. Today I'll discuss another factor that influences early season games and that's returning starters. Who is coming back is probably to first thing bettors look at when evaluating a team during the summer. And based on my experience, teams with "a lot" of returning starters get a lot more love in the betting markets than those with only "a few” returning starters. Before I begin note that there are many different definitions of “returning starters” but for the sake of argument, we'll use Phil Steele as our reference point since his publication is such a common fixture among the betting community. Keep in a mind, A LOT can happen over the course of three months and I've seen multiple examples where returning starter numbers in June were a lot different than in September.

I used the very arbitrary numbers of 17 or more and 10 or less when breaking down our returning starter "extremes." That gives us 31 Read more

College Football Betting: Kentucky opts for two quarterbacks in Week 1

08.22.2013     06:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oh boy. Kentucky has decided it will play two quarterbacks in its opener against Western Kentucky. Neither Maxwell Smith nor Jalen Whitlow was able to win the gig during fall camp. And first-year head coach Mark Stoops even said that third-stringer Patrick Towels could play at some point this season if Smith and Whitlow don't pan out. Just to recap, Kentucky is obviously under a new coaching regime, one that wants to completely change its offensive philosophy and play up-tempo. They plan on doing this behind an inexperienced offensive line and a two quarterback system which historically has about a 13.5% success rate. It would be a lot different if the Wildcats played an FCS cupcake in Week 1 but instead, they face a Western Kentucky squad (in Nashville) that won last Read more

College Football Betting: Syracuse uses gambling as an excuse to have closed practices

Congratulations to Syracuse's football team for winning the Biggest Crock of Shit of the Day award.


"He wanted to close it down because of the reporting on injuries," said Sue Edson, the Assistant Athletics Director/Communications for football. "We have a responsibility to make sure any injury that's out there does not influence betting lines."

College Football Handicapping: Phil Steele's impact on the betting markets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When it comes to college football, there are a lot of unknowns heading into a season. Most bettors know that Alabama will be good and Florida Atlantic will be bad but in between there are a lot of teams that will be far better or worse than the previous year. To pinpoint those teams we use preseason publications to give us a guideline – returning starters, two-deep, new coaches, last season's stats, etc. And no publication is better at providing that information than Phil Steele. But because Steele's work is bettor friendly, it also has a tendency to impact the betting markets. Steele's reasoning for teams going "up" or "down" is hardly groundbreaking but it’s more often than not sound logic. Bettors read Steele, and if they agree with his assessment of a team, they bet on said team be it Week 1, season over/under wins, or odds to win a division and/or conference.

Out of curiosity, we took the 17 teams that made Steele's Most Improved List and checked out the line moves on their Week 1 games (see chart below). Nearly half of them play FCS opponents which as of today aren't lined. For those who do have lined games, we see that Steele's top Read more

NCAA Football Handicapping: Auburn Tigers banged up heading into Week 1

Washington State at Auburn -15.5 O/U 59.5

A bunch of key injuries for the Auburn Tigers as they prepare for their Week 1 home game against Washington State.


“We stalled out and hit neutral about a week ago with the loss of so many players that are in the starting picture,” Johnson said. “At one point, we had our best pass rusher, our returning tackle leader, our third-best cornerback out…in fact, we practiced one day without three of our four best corners.”
