Teddy Covers' NBA Betting News and Quotes 1-2-2012

01.02.2012     11:07 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
We’ve got a full week of NBA action in the books, and every team except Milwaukee has at least four games under their belts.  Let’s take a look around the league, concentrating on key notes and quotes, the type of information that has the potential to make us some money in the weeks to come.

Chicago Bulls – The Bulls suffered through a bit of a sluggish start to the season.  They had to rally from behind late to earn a non-covering, one-point win against the Lakers in their opener, followed by an embarrassing loss the next night at Golden State.  Since that time, Tom Thibodeau’s squad has won and covered three straight, all by double-digit margins, playing championship caliber basketball on both ends of the floor. Center Joakim Noah: “I think we're the deepest team in the NBA. I think Omer [Asik] has been playing great for us. Taj Gibson, Kyle Korver - all these guys I feel could be starters. I feel like it definitely takes our team to a whole 'nother level when you bring in the second unit and they're very good.”  In a frenetic ‘66 games in less than four months’ season where Read more

Rose Bowl Betting Preview: Wisconsin Badgers vs. Oregon Ducks

01.02.2012     04:33 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

Rose Bowl
Wisconsin vs. Oregon
Monday, 2 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: Oregon -4.5 O/U 72
CRIS Current: Oregon -5 O/U 72
Rob Veno Power Rating: Oregon -2.5

Andrew Lange's Betting Take: I thought for a minute we might see this line climb to 7 as a majority of the early money came in on the Ducks but bettors cleared out all of the 6's yesterday with Oregon now a 5-point favorite across the board.

The stats for both teams are fairly even across the board even though the go about their work in different ways. Oregon played the slightly stronger schedule (37 vs. 55) according to Sagarin's ratings. Our ACCU-Stats show the Ducks with a 0.50 yards per rush edge while the Badgers were 0.14 better at stopping the run. Wisconsin features the stronger passing attack that ranked third nationally in yards per attempt. It is hard to get a gauge on just how Read more

Gator Bowl Betting Preview: Florida Gators vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

Gator Bowl
Florida vs. Ohio State
Monday, 10 am PT - ESPN2
CRIS Opener: Florida -1 O/U 43
CRIS Current: Florida -2 O/U 44
Rob Veno Power Rating: Ohio State -3.5

Andrew Lange's Betting Take: A lot more non-football related talk surrounding these two storied but currently mediocre football programs. According to reports, Urban Meyer has kept his distance during Ohio State's preparation – though he officially takes over the program on Tuesday. For Florida, it lost offensive coordinator Charlie Weis (Kansas HC), which in the eyes of some was a good thing.

As for the play on the field, both defenses were above average with the Gators 9th nationally (299.6 ypg allowed) and Ohio State 24th (328.6 ypg allowed). UF's numbers start to look even better when we eliminate games against LSU and Alabama (277.6 ypg allowed, 16.8 ppg allowed). The Read more

Penn State vs. Houston
Monday, 9 am PT - ESPNU
CRIS Opener: Houston -7 O/U 57.5
CRIS Current: Houston -6.5 O/U 56.5
Rob Veno Power Rating: Houston -5

Erin Rynning's Betting Take: The Nittany Lions spent much of the season grinding out ugly wins. Pretty remarkable that they actually controlled their own destiny heading into the season finale against Wisconsin with a shot at the inaugural Big Ten title game. But PSU eventually ran out of gas and was embarrassed 42-7. To make matters worse the program felt slighted after the more marquee bowls passed them over for Ohio State, Michigan and Iowa. To make matters worse, on again/off again quarterback Matt McGloin was hurt in a locker room fight with wide receiver Curtis Drake. McGloin is extremely doubtful for this game, which means the enigmatic at best Rob Bolden is expected to start. Read more

NFL Gambling Preview: San Francisco 49ers at St. Louis Rams

12.30.2011     01:45 PM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
A number of playoff scenarios and implications headline NFL Week 17 action. Here is some of the good, bad and ugly for teams in this week’s match-ups. Note that all 17 games are divisional contests.

San Francisco -10.5 at St. Louis O/U 35.5

The surprise team of the NFL can clinch the NFC’s No. 2 seed and first round bye with a win. Led by a solid ground game and bend but don’t break defense allowing just 14 ppg, the 49ers appear poised to have a playoff bye and home field game in the divisional round. San Francisco has created and benefitted from a league-best turnover margin, and quarterback Alex Smith has managed the conservative offense effectively with nearly 3,000 yards and a 16/5 TD-to-INT ratio.  At 12-3 SU and 11-3-1 ATS, the 49ers have covered the pointspread by over 105 points; best in the NFL. They take on a 2-13 SU/ATS Rams team that did manage to upset the Saints on this field as similar big underdog earlier this season. St. Louis Read more

Chick-Fil-A Bowl Betting Preview: Virginia Cavaliers vs. Auburn Tigers

Chick-Fil-A Bowl
Virginia vs. Auburn
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: Auburn -1 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Auburn -3 O/U 49
Teddy Covers Power Rating: Auburn -1

Teddy Covers' Betting Take: Since the end of the regular season, Auburn offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn left the program to become the Arkansas State head coach, taking a pay cut to leave town.  Then, defensive coordinator Ted Roof took a pay cut to take the same job at Central Florida.  While numerous reports have described the situation as calm, not chaotic, when both coordinators leave town before bowl season, taking pay cuts in the process, it can’t be considered a positive sign moving forward.

Auburn has on-field issues as well.  The Tigers were at their best this year when they were pounding the ball with leading rusher Michael Dyer, who finished the Read more

Music City Bowl Betting Preview: Wake Forest vs. Mississippi State

CRIS Opener: Mississippi State -6.5 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Mississippi State -6.5 O/U 47
Rob Veno Power Rating: Mississippi State -7.5

Erin Rynning's Betting Take: The Music City Bowl presents an interesting dilemma of basic bowl handicapping – matchups vs. motivation.  You would think Wake Forest would have motivation on its side after dropping four of its last five games, including an embarrassing 41-7 loss to Vanderbilt to close out the regular season.  Meanwhile, Mississippi State could very easily be disinterested for this game.  Last season was a storybook journey for the Bulldogs, which culminated in the dismantling of famed Michigan on New Year’s Day.  This showdown with Wake Forest just might not be enough Read more

NCAA Basketball Betting: Northern Arizona and Idaho State coaching changes

12.29.2011     01:17 PM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Some news out of the Big Sky that seems to have flown under the radar. Both Northern Arizona and Idaho State saw their head coaches resign recently.

Joe O'Brien had a lot of success at the junior college level but could never kick start the Idaho State program (56-105 since 2006). Assistant Deane Martin has taken over on an interim basis. Martin is a first-year assistant who spent time as a coach in Mexico and with the NBDL. ISU lost to Wyoming 80-56 at home in Martin's debut. They play at Weber State tonight.

Northern Arizona's Mike Adras stepped aside back in early December and the Lumberjacks responded under 70-year-old interim coach Dave Brown with wins over Cal State Bakersfield and Arizona State. They were however blasted at Sam Houston State last time out, 73-49. NAU plays host to Sacramento State tonight.

The personnel for both teams are so poor this year that the coaching changes are unlikely to bring about a massive turnaround. The Big Sky is a flaky league where randomness tends to prevail but I have little to no interest in backing these squads anytime soon (4-12 ATS combined).

Armed Forces Bowl Betting Preview: Tulsa Golden Hurricane vs. BYU Cougars

Armed Forces Bowl
Tulsa vs. BYU
Friday, 9 am PT – ESPN
CRIS Opener: BYU pk O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Tulsa -1 O/U 56
Rob Veno Power Rating: BYU pk

Rob Veno’s Betting Take: It’s not that difficult to poke holes in each of the pointspread hot streaks posted by these teams to close the regular seasons. Tulsa went 5-1 ATS over the back half of its schedule but the only bowl teams they faced were Marshall and Houston. They destroyed Marshall by 42 but got hammered at home by Houston 48-16 in a season ending showdown for the Conference-USA West Division title. Against bowl teams overall, Tulsa went 1-4 straight up and 2-3 ATS with all five games totaling 61 points or more and averaging 70.8. BYU’s final six games saw a 6-0 ATS run with the lone straight up loss at TCU, 38-28. The rest of their current pointspread run consists of victories Read more

Friday, 12:20 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: Rutgers -2 O/U 44.5
CRIS Current: Rutgers -1.5 O/U 45
Teddy Covers Power Rating: Rutgers -4

Teddy Covers' Betting Take: Iowa State wasn’t very good this year.  The Cyclones did have one signature win, a thrilling double OT victory at home against Oklahoma State.  And Iowa State did put together a road blowout, beating up on Texas Tech 41-7 the week after the Red Raiders had knocked off Oklahoma in Stillwater.  But when you look at the entirety of the Cyclones schedule, you walk away underwhelmed with their accomplishments.  Iowa State was a team that closed out the season on a 3-6 SU slide.  Five of their six wins came by four points or less, or in overtime – even the one point win over FCS Northern Iowa, a win they needed to become Read more
