NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Utah Jazz at Phoenix Suns

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Utah at Phoenix -1.5 O/U 197.5
Recommendation: Phoenix


The Suns have absolutely owned the Jazz, winning eight of the last ten meetings between these two teams on any floor.  That includes a comfortable 99-84 Phoenix victory when these two teams met just three weeks ago; a game that the Suns led by double digits after the first quarter and controlled thereafter.

There’s no reason to expect a dramatically different result tonight.  The betting markets haven’t fully grasped the impact of the Mo Williams injury for Utah.  Sure, the Jazz are 2-3 SU, 3-2 ATS without him for the last five games – nothing significant there.  But this is not as good of a team with career backups Jamaal Tinsley and Earl Watson splitting time at the point, as opposed to a former all-star.  And facing a quick opposing point guard like Goran Dragic is likely to make the Jazz feel Williams’s absence that much more tonight.

It’s not hard to make a Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Northwestern turns to underclassmen vs. Michigan

Michigan -10.5 at Northwestern O/U 128.5

It'll be interesting to see how Northwestern handles tonight's matchup against Michigan. The Wildcats already lost Drew Crawford (13.5 ppg) for the season and Reggie Hearn (14.5 ppg) is out with an ankle injury. As a result, Northwestern's top six players in terms of possessions used are four freshmen, a sophomore and a senior.


"Where are we going to get the scoring from?" Carmody asked. "Three weeks ago, we had Drew and Reggie and they gave me 30 a game. Who are you going to get it from?"

"Coach Carmody has had a lot of success with freshmen in his system and it's one of those years where we're going to have to have freshmen step in and do the best they can and play with confidence and run the stuff they run," Sobolewski said.

NFL Handicapping: Ravens look to maintain success vs. rookie quarterbacks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indianapolis at Baltimore -6.5 O/U 47

The Baltimore Ravens have a pretty strong history against rookie quarterbacks under head coach John Harbaugh. In eight games, Baltimore went 6-2 and held those first-year signal callers for 51% completions and a 60.4 passer rating.


“I can't tell you any secrets, but we've got a little niche going,” defensive tackle Arthur Jones said. “We definitely have something going that you'll see on Sunday. We've definitely got something going that's positive and been working for us against rookie quarterbacks to isolate them and prevent them from performing at high levels.”

Sun Bowl Betting Preview: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. USC Trojans

Sun Bowl - El Paso, Texas
Monday, December 31, 11 am PT - CBS
Georgia Tech vs. USC
CRIS Opener:
USC -10 O/U 66
CRIS Current: USC -7.5 O/U 64
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -9

Not real sure of the interest level that will be exhibited by the entire USC squad here so Georgia Tech is likely to have a motivational advantage. The season ending nine-point home loss to Notre Dame doesn’t look terrible on paper, but the way it unfolded seemed to be the decisive final straw in defining the Trojans campaign as a total bust. Since then, the negativity surrounding the program has continued to grow. Beleaguered defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is out the door after this game and on his way back to the NFL. Head coach Lane Kiffin is currently viewed by fans and media in a completely negative fashion and his competence is especially being questioned. Quarterback Matt Barkley’s Read more

NFL Handicapping: Oakland to start Terrelle Pryor vs. San Diego

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Well, if anything, Sunday's Oakland-San Diego game will be a tad more interesting. After giving Matt Leinart the start last week – the results were very Mark Sanchez-esque – the Raiders have decided to go with Terrelle Pryor to close out the season. Oakland must have gotten the memo that unlike Leinart, there is at least a small chance Pryor won't totally suck.

Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl – San Francisco
Saturday, December 29, 1 pm PT – ESPN
Navy vs. Arizona State
CRIS Opener:
Arizona State -15.5 O/U 56
CRIS Current: Arizona State -13.5 O/U 55.5
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Arizona State -14.5

There are a multitude of contrasts and advantages to be considered in this game but motivation is not one of them. Each squad has openly expressed their excitement to be in the postseason so we figure to get maximum effort. Preparation time is essential when facing Navy’s triple option attack and even with the extra time, ASU is not finding things easy. First year head coach Todd Graham cites the Navy blocking scheme as difficult to defend and obviously simulating it in practice is nothing like what the Sun Devils will see Saturday afternoon. There are problems for Navy too in prepping for Arizona State’s high powered and Read more

USC has already managed to piss off everyone associated with the Sun Bowl

Georgia Tech vs. USC -9 O/U 64

You think Lane Kiffin was thinking Sun Bowl when the preseason polls came out last summer? Probably not. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the Trojans are reportedly not taking their trip to El Paso all that seriously. For starters, they “big leagued” Georgia Tech by showing up an hour and a half late to the banquet dinner – an undisclosed injury during practice was said to have been the reason. Tech’s Paul Johnson sent his kids back to the hotel. Then you had multiple USC players bad-mouthing El Paso on Twitter:


"Out here in El Paso. Shitty city but glad I can enjoy this moment wit the USC family."

"Georgia Tech!? El Paso, Texas!? New Years Eve!? FML" and "if you never seen a real life giant

The NFL's Top 7 Pointspread Plays of the Year

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In my world, there’s nothing better than a ‘right side’ winner – no drama, no sweating; an easy ‘rocking chair’ cover.  Of course, cashing nothing but ‘right side’ winners is MUCH easier said than done.   In the real world, there are so many games that come down to a late, key play that determines the SU and/or ATS winner.

As the end of the NFL season approaches. I’ve gone back through my notes, looking at the some of the wackiest pointspread outcomes of the year – the really memorable ones. End of the year Top 10 lists are so passé, so I’ll call this my Top 7 Pointspread Plays of the Year.  Let’s start the countdown with No. 7

No. 7 – Week 11, Green Bay Packers late field goal
Green Bay was a three-point road favorite at slumping Detroit, but they trailed for most of the game, and were behind by six points at the 2-minute warning.  Lions’ bettors weren’t worried – a Green Bay touchdown, in theory, would only lead to a one-point, non-covering win.  Aaron Rodgers threw for that touchdown on the very first play Read more

Ohio vs. Louisiana-Monroe
CRIS Opener:
UL-Monroe -6.5 O/U 61
CRIS Current: UL-Monroe -7 O/U 61
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UL-Monroe -7

My alma mater, Ohio University, returns to a bowl game for the fourth straight year after securing the program’s first ever bowl victory in 2011. This was a team widely expected to compete for and win the MAC conference. As we’ll discuss in the coming paragraphs those expectations looked to be spot on early on in the season but eventually went up in smoke.

Ohio returned a core group of 15 starters from a 10-win team in 2011 that included one of the MAC’s more dynamic quarterbacks, a solid offensive line and a stout defense. They went on the road and upset Penn State in Week 1 which would spark a seven-game win streak to begin the season as they Read more
