NFL Betting News and Notes - Preseason Recap

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Welcome to the debut of my weekly column NFL Betting News & Notes. Each week I will be digging for and sharing misleading box score stats as well as pointing out things only realized by watching the games. With Week 1 set to kickoff starting Wednesday, let's look back at some noteworthy items from the preseason.

Last week...

Buffalo’s starting offense led by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick struggled quite bit during the preseason. So does last week's 38-32 final score against Detroit indicate signs of progress? My answer is no. They were only in the game for one possession and most of the points came from the Bills’ backups including a 100-yard kickoff return by Marcus Easley. The Bills had 221 passing yards but Fitzpatrick accounted for only 39 of those yards. Like I said, that game was in my opinion not an indicator that everything is OK in Buffalo.

Money came pouring in on St. Louis prior to its final preseason game against the Ravens. The Rams opened as a pick ‘em and went to as high as -5.5 by kickoff. That sharp money proved to be the right side as the Rams ended their preseason with a 31-17 spread covering win. So does that Read more

Teddy Covers' Wiseguy Report: Recapping College Football Week 1

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As I Tweeted (@teddy_covers) this past Sunday, it’s all NFL from here on out for the rest of 2012 – the time for leisurely Sunday’s has come and gone. With my writing focus turning to the NFL as well, I thought this week’s column should be about something else. And with the opening weekend of college football in the books, I figured a random college football observations column made perfect sense at this juncture. So here goes!

There’s an old sports betting adage about not overreacting to the results of a single game. In the middle of the season, I agree 100% – after a team’s mo. is clearly defined. But in Week 1, I think it’s just as important not to underreact either!

When Houston loses at home 30-13 to Texas State as 34.5-point favorites, that’s a meaningful result. It’s meaningful when Oklahoma can’t move the football for extended stretches against UTEP, punting eight times on 13 drives. It’s meaningful when San Jose State outscores Stanford 17-6 after the first quarter and outgains the Cardinal for the full 60 Read more

College Football Betting: Added game previews by Handicapper Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Towson at Kent State -7 - Lot of respect for Towson who unexpectedly took the CAA by storm last year. Kent State has a strong defense and feels it’s a bit better offensively this season but still, don't see a real talent gap here. Towson's balanced and explosive offense with eight of its pieces back plus more experienced defense makes them a threat. Power Ratings made this a pick-em. Recommendation: Took a small piece of Towson +7

Southeast Missouri State at Central Michigan -26 - No real interest here but do think that CMU will rise up and become competitive again in MAC this year behind QB Radcliff and receiving weapons (bumped them +2.5 in my PR this year). SEMO is not OVC trash and they have Ohio U. sophomore transfer Kyle Snyder at QB so his knowledge of Chippewas will help in game prep. They are run heavy and decent at it so if they have success, clock grinding makes +26 look large. Think their defense may get toasted through the air early and often though. Recommendation: None

Northern Colorado at Utah -42 - Northern really optimistic about this season based on more Read more

College Football Betting: Duke without as many as 12 scholarship players vs. FIU

Florida International at Duke -3 O/U 54

Duke is expected to be without 11-12 scholarship players due to injury for Saturday's opener against FIU.


“I don’t understand it,” Cutcliffe said. “I tell you, I’ve never even been close to this. We have minimally now 12 scholarship players who will be out of the first game. At the end of June, it didn’t look anything like that. July was a difficult month for us, and August has continued on the same path. Our guys are resilient; they’ve been resilient since we’ve been here. This is a resilient staff. If a group can handle it, it will be this team.”

“We can’t take many more hits,” Cutcliffe said. “I’ll be honest with you, it’s made me a little more cautious at practice. I don’t

NFL Preseason Betting: New England Patriots may play starters

New England -1.5 at -New York Giants- O/U 41

According to the Boston Herald, there is a chance New England's starters could see some time tonight against the Giants.


“Yeah, he was big on those game-plan scenarios,” Evans said of Belichick. “But Bill’s Bill. Nothing ever surprises me. So I would expect (the starters) to play some.”

“Absolutely,” Evans said. “Bill wants to fix problems. So I would expect him to play the guys, let them work out what he wants them to work out. You still have Friday, Saturday, Sunday (to) rest. He can rest them like they had a bye week.”

College Football Gambling: Florida goes with QB rotation vs. Bowling Green

Bowling Green at Florida -29 O/U 48

Perhaps not a good sign that Florida is going with a quarterback rotation for their Week 1 opener against Bowling Green.  Head coach Will Muschamp said either Jacoby Brissett or Jeff Driskel will play the first quarter while the other will play the second quarter. At halftime, the coaching staff will reevaluate the situation. Muschamp said he's not concerned with the QB position but bettors should be, especially if you missed -23 on the opener and are considering laying the current price of -29. When a coach can't commit to one quarterback it more often than not means none of the candidates were good enough to earn the job.


"I think both guys are good

NFL Preseason Gambling: Miami wants more offensive balance vs. Atlanta

Atlanta -3 at -Miami O/U 41.5

In two preseason games, the Miami Dolphins have thrown the ball an amazing 80% of the time (108/27 ratio). Offensive coordinator Mike Sherman hints that they may go with a more balanced attack against Atlanta.


"In this league, you've got to be able to the run the football," Sherman said. "I know I keep telling the [offensive] linemen that, but I'm not sure they believe me."

College Football Gambling: UNLV says freshman QB will start vs. Minnesota

08.22.2012     12:15 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UNLV head coach Bobby Hauck announced that redshirt freshman quarterback Nice Sherry will be the team's Week 1 starter against Minnesota. The fact that Sherry beat out last year's starter, Caleb Herring, is a positive sign though Herring did post the worst QB rating (102.8) in the Mountain West last. UNLV is lined at 4.5un-285 wins according to 5Dimes. Some varying opinion on their Week 1 home opener against Minnesota. CRIS opened the Rebels +9 and it dropped to as low as +7. It then shot up to +10 at a few sportsbooks before settling back in at its current number of +9. 


“I’m going to take chances. I’m going to throw the deep ball,” he said. “I’m going to throw the ball down the field. I’m going to extend the defense and make them respect the deep ball and respect the deep routes.”

“He keeps improving. He has a big arm,” Hauck said. “He has improved his understanding of what it will take to get the job done. We feel he gives us a chance to be competitive

NFL Preseason ATS Notes: Carolina starters to play first half, Rivera wants better effort

Miami at Carolina -3 O/U 37

Carolina head coach Ron Rivera says Cam Newton and the starters will play the entire first half during tonight's game against Miami. Earlier this week, Rivera also came out and requested a better effort from his players after a poor showing in Week 1's 26-13 loss to Houston.


"I expected some guys to step up and make some plays and some guys didn't," Rivera said. "That is disappointing. When you have an opportunity to play this football game, you have to play it with a sense of urgency and we didn't do that, especially in the second half.

"To me that was very disappointing and I will work to get that corrected because it falls on me. I do not accept that as football and I
