College Football Betting Preview: Miami RedHawks at Bowling Green Falcons

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Miami at Bowling Green
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener:
Bowling Green -3.5 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Bowling Green -2 O/U 52.5
Recommendation: Under

It does not get much more under the radar than the Miami-Bowling Green. Both teams stand at 1-6 on the year with the RedHawks off of their first win of the year just last week over Kent State. Bowling Green has lost five straight and is still searching for their first win against FBS competition. It's no secret both of these two MAC schools have major flaws, although it offers value when looking at the total, especially when factoring in one of the few positive units; Miami’s defense

The RedHawks ranks first in the MAC at 252.7 ypg allowed in conference play. They have a talented front seven and have held aggressive pass-happy offenses like Western Kentucky and Cincinnati to under 270 yards passing and 31 and 27 points, respectfully. Bowling Green had its best offensive game of the season in its Battle of the I-75 rivalry matchup against Toledo. The Falcons racked up 502 yards but gave up a touchdown with 18 seconds remaining to lose the Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders at Missouri Tigers

Middle Tennessee State at Missouri
Saturday, 1 pm PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Missouri -6.5 O/U 69.5
CRIS Current: Missouri -7.5 O/U 75
Recommendation: Missouri

Missouri enters this matchup with a 2-4 record under new head coach Barry Odom including back-to-back blowout losses at LSU and Florida. In their six games, the Tigers have faced three elite defenses in West Virginia, LSU and Florida and their offense has struggled in those three losses. However, against average or worse defenses, the Tigers’ new passing offense has been good and they will face an opposing defense that they should be able to take advantage of this week in Middle Tennessee State.

MTSU allowed perhaps the worst SEC offense, Vanderbilt, to pile up 47 points with 344 total yards and 5.1 yards per rush.  MTSU also allowed 34 points to La Tech and 44 last week to Western Kentucky. This defense will struggle again against SEC athletes, and I expect Missouri to get back on track against the Blue Raiders.

Missouri should also pose some problems on defense for the MTSU offense. Despite the lopsided score last week Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Central Florida Knights at UConn Huskies

Central Florida at UConn
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNN
CRIS Opener:
Central Florida -2 O/U 51
CRIS Current: Central Florida -4.5 O/U 47.5
Recommendation: Central Florida

I’ve bet against UConn a number of times this season and the price looks reasonable to do so again here as they host the improving UCF Knights. UConn is not a team I trust to beat comparable foes. They have been outgained in five of their last six games including last week’s 42-27 loss to South Florida (529-378). The score could have been a much worse had it not been for a +4 turnover margin in UConn’s favor.

Central Florida has shown the ability to stop the run and that is the key to this game. The Knights are surrendering just 126.7 yards per game on the ground at a paltry 3.2 yards per rush. UConn’s offense simply doesn’t work if they struggle to run the football because QB Bryant Shirreffs is just not a good enough pocket passer to carry his team to victory through the air. He has completed no more than 56.4% of his passes in UConn’s last three games against Houston, Cincinnati and South Read more

College Football Gambling Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks at Auburn Tigers

Arkansas at Auburn
Saturday, 3 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Auburn -8 O/U 55
CRIS Current: Auburn -10 O/U 55.5
Recommendation: Arkansas

Arkansas has a reputation in the Brett Bielema era of being a pure smashmouth, run first squad.  Part of that is true this year – the Razorbacks can certainly play some power football in the trenches – their top two backs are averaging close to six yards per carry between them, despite having faced TCU, A&M, Ole Miss and Alabama already.  But the key to this bet is Hogs junior QB Austin Allen, who has superseded his older brother in his first year as the starter.

Allen is averaging 8.5 yards per pass, with a 18-6 TD-INT ratio and a 64% completion rate.  He threw for 400 yards and three touchdowns against Alabama, but he threw three of his six interceptions on the year in that ballgame.  No shame in that – Alabama’s defense is loaded with future NFL players.  And he followed up that showing against the Crimson Tide with another three TD effort against Ole Miss last week.  Arkansas has seven different Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Arkansas Razorbacks at Auburn Tigers

Arkansas at Auburn
Saturday, 3 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Auburn -8 O/U 55
CRIS Current: Auburn -10 O/U 55.5
Recommendation: Over

As discussed in the Sportsmemo Blog on Tuesday, Auburn's offense has shown a small uptick in productivity since offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee took over play calling duties. Head coach Gus Malzahn on the switch: "I thought he's done an outstanding job," Malzahn said. "I think since that change you can see a difference in our offense with our tempo and just overall moving the football. That's real encouraging moving forward." I'm not going to get carried away by strong offensive showings against UL-Monroe and Mississippi State but it's reasonable to think the Tigers can have continued success this weekend against Arkansas who in three SEC games has allowed 503.7 ypg at 8.39 per clip. Perhaps an even more important stat in those three contests is that the Razorbacks allowed 53% third down conversions. Auburn's tempo is predicated on picking up 4-5 yards on first down and moving the chains which they should be able to do on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Syracuse Orange at Boston College Eagles

Syracuse at Boston College
Saturday, 9:30 am PT
CRIS Opener:
Boston College -4 O/U 51.5
CRIS Current: Boston College -4.5 O/U 52.5
Recommendation: Over

Off of last week’s winner with the Wake Forest-Florida State “under”, ACC free plays now stand at 5-1-1 on the season. This week the conference has only four games with six of its teams on a bye week but they are all still meaningful. Syracuse goes to Boston College in what shapes up as a bowl bid elimination game since the team which loses this one realistically has no shot at getting to six wins. The Orange enter off of an improbable 31-17 home upset win over Virginia Tech as +22.5 point underdogs. In that contest, the extreme tempo ran 100 plays from scrimmage resulting in 32 first downs, 10-of-21, 47.6% on third down conversions, and 561 total yards which were all season highs posted against Virginia Tech’s defense. Meanwhile, Boston College had a bye last week after being steamrolled 56-10 by Clemson . Their top-ranked total yards against defense was torched for 503 yards in that contest. The Eagles offense was bas as well Read more

College Football Gambling: Auburn's offense on the upswing

10.18.2016     07:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Auburn's offense has looked the part since offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee took over playing calling duties. The Tigers are 3-0 SU/ATS and are averaging 502. ypg and 6.5 ypp.


"I thought he's done an outstanding job," Malzahn said. "I think since that change you can see a difference in our offense with our tempo and just overall moving the football. That's real encouraging moving forward."

"I think we're seeing the identity of this year's team, what we want to be, we're playing with good tempo this year," Lashlee said. "We're averaging between 70 and 80 plays, which is a good clip in our league if you average over 70 plays, that's good. The closer to 80 you get — we've had some games in the 80s — that's good. And we've had some halves like (against Mississippi State) we had 49 or 50 plays; that's a good half.

"It all comes back to execution. We're executing well in the passing game, staying efficient which allows us to stay on the field. Get some tempo going, allows us to run

College Football Betting News: Oregon State down to third string quarterback

10.18.2016     07:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Multiple injuries have Oregon State tapping deep into its depth chart for a starting quarterback. Third stringer Marcus McMaryion is expected to start Saturday's game against Washington. McMaryion played in seven games last season but completed only 40% of his passes. Look for the Beavers to stick to the ground after running the ball 85 times (335 ypg) in recent pointspread covers over California and Utah.


"He knows it's his team right now," Andersen said of McMaryion. "He'll be a leader. He'll take care of his business. He'll have high expectations for himself."
