College Football Gambling: Returning quarterback has historically meant good things for K-State

08.21.2014     09:48 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas State's Bill Snyder has a pretty impressive track record with a returning quarterback under center. The last five times it has occurred the most recent in 2013 with Colin Klein the Wildcats have gone on to win 11 games. Jake Waters is back after throwing for 2,469 yards with 18 TDs and 9 INTs. Getting to 11 wins will be a daunting task according to the betting markets with KSU lined at 7.5ov-144 wins at Pinnacle. The Wildcats play five of their nine Big XII games on the road including trips to Oklahoma and Baylor.


“The expectations we put on ourselves are way higher than last year and way higher than anything anyone else is going to put on us,” Waters said. “We are a very confident group with what we have coming back, but we also know how hard we have to go out and work to win. We have a chance to be a special team.”

NFL Preseason Betting: Cincinnati's Week 3 focus is staying healthy

08.21.2014     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cincinnati at Arizona -2 O/U 43

Despite being 0-2, Cincinnati isn't going to extend its starters' minutes for Sunday's Week 3 preseason game at Arizona. Head coach Marvin Lewis said that his starters likely won't see any time beyond the first half.


"The health of the football team is so important," said Lewis. "We're going to let some of the guys play more this week, but ultimately what counts is being able to prepare and be ready to go for Baltimore, and having the guys stay healthy and ready to go. We're going to extend the play of our guys because there is something about the football conditioning part. There's quite a difference between the first (regular-season) game we play to last week's (preseason) game. That's probably more than anything is I want to make sure of the conditioning part. We'll get some guys into the second quarter this week and go from there. I more count the plays."

Pittsburgh at Philadelphia -3.5 O/U 50.5

Some news and notes on Philadelphia's game plan for tonight's preseason tilt vs. Pittsburgh. According to reports, all three of Nick Foles' starting receivers, Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, and Jordan Matthews, will play. In last year's Week 3 preseason game, the Eagles posted 452 total yards en route to a spread covering (-4.5) 31-24 win over Jacksonville.


"I just want to see guys play," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. "It's just, go and play and get valuable reps. You'd like to get in situations. But we're not going to manufacture a bad situation to see how we respond.

"We just need reps. There are some guys that need a lot more reps because they haven't played in the first two preseason games. You have to get out there and run around with the officials when it's loud and they're tackling and doing all those things."

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Kansas City Royals at Colorado Rockies

08.20.2014     09:40 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas City (Duffy) at Colorado (De La Rosa) +100 O/U 9.5 
Recommendation: Colorado


The Rockies are a true bottom feeder, entering play on Wednesday with the worst record in the NL.  They went a truly woeful 12-44 over a 56 game span from mid-June through mid-August, costing their supporters a small fortune during that extended skid.  They’re playing without injured stars Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki, both out for the season.  And yet the Rockies are a clear bet-on squad today as short home underdogs against the Royals.

Why?  Simple – they’ve got Jorge De La Rosa on the hill tonight, the undisputed King of Pitchers at Coors Field.  De La Rosa is 8-2 with a 3.30 ERA at home this year; in sharp contrast to his 4-6/5.35 on the road. That includes a 5-0 mark in his five home starts during Colorado’s long slump. The only games they’ve been winning consistently for months are the games when De La Rosa takes the hill at home.  His quote: “It is such a good place to pitch.”

This is neither new nor different.  Over the previous three years (2011-13), De La Rosa went 13-1 at home with a 3.09 ERA, again, numbers that are far better than his results on the highway.  In fact, dating back to his first appearance at Coors Field with the Rockies in 2008, he’s 43-14 on this field; a ‘bet-on’ hurler in every sense of the word.  And with the Rockies showing signs of life – three wins in their last five games – De La Rosa is most assuredly supporting here in this underdog price range.

Danny Duffy has made one previous career start at Coors and it wasn’t pretty: five earned runs and ten baserunners allowed in five innings of work.  Duffy hasn’t thrown a quality start in his last four outings; already well past his previous career high in innings pitched this year.  I’m not expecting a gem tonight either.

College Fotball Gambling Update: CRIS reopens Ohio State -12.5 at Navy

08.20.2014     07:48 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

A lot of talk over the last 48 hours about how oddsmakers and the betting markets would react to Ohio State's Braxton Miller being out for the year. The Buckeyes were 17-point road favorites at Navy for Week 1 before sportsbooks pulled the game off the board. CRIS just reopened the game -12.5.




College Football Gambling Alert: Sportsbooks take Ohio State-Navy off the board following Miller injury

08.19.2014     07:02 AM     View Original Blog
Ohio State's Braxton Miller reportedly re-injured his shoulder during yesterday's practice and is awaiting results on an MRI. During Braxton's absence last year, the Buckeyes didn't miss a beat with Kenny Guiton (14-2 TD-INT ratio) under center. Guiton however has since graduated leaving redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett as the team's top option. Barrett obviously has no game experience but saw plenty of work in spring practice while Braxton was recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. The Buckeyes open the season at Navy. Prior to Miller's injury, OSU was a 17-point road favorite. Most sportsbooks have since taken the game off the board.

NFL Handicapping Update: Penalties are being called at a ridiculously high rate

08.20.2014     07:36 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Penalties are up over 40% from last year's preseason -- most of which are being called on the defense. But don’t sleep on offensive pass interference; they have more than doubled compared to the first two weeks of 2013’s preseason. 


“That was crazy,” Browns cornerback Joe Haden said after his team’s preseason game Monday night against the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. “That was a little crazy … I was talking to DeSean [Jackson]. He was like, ‘These are bad calls.’ He was saying I wasn’t holding him. I’m like, ‘I know I’m not holding you.’ … We’ve got to kind of adjust our game.”

“We don’t teach that. We don’t teach people to grab receivers after five yards downfield,” Kelly said at his postgame news conference. “And if that becomes your go-to move and that’s what you’ve got to do, you can’t play. You’ve got to figure that out. And we never teach anybody to strike anybody in the face. We’ve got to understand that that’s going to be called. And if that’s going to be called, then you’ve got to fix it. You don’t have to agree with the speed limit. But if the cop’s out there with a speed gun, you better take your foot off the gas or he’s going to pull you over. It’s the bottom line. Rules are rules and you’ve got to follow them.”



 

 




NFL Handicapping: League says new rules are here to stay

08.18.2014     01:14 PM     View Original Blog
Who's ready for some NFL totals in the 60's? The league says that it won't budge on its “points of emphasis.” They are convinced that players and coaches will eventually adjust. This preseason has featured an average of 23.7 penalties per game. Last year's regular season averaged 12.7.


“The way the game’s being officiated now is the way it’s going to be officiated when the season begins,” Blandino said. “We have to remain consistent. I knew we’d see a spike in calls when we put out these points of emphasis. But coaches adjust, and players adjust. They have to, and they know it. And we’ll correct our officials when we feel they’re being over-zealous with certain calls. Plus, I would say that between 70 and 75 percent of the calls I’ve gotten from teams after their games this preseason are asking the question, Why weren’t there more calls? I had a call today from a team with seven questions, and six were, Why wasn’t a foul called on this play?”

NFL Betting News: Cleveland goes the safe route with Hoyer

08.20.2014     07:29 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You can rest easy, bettors...for now. Cleveland went from not being ready to name a starting quarterback to handing Brian Hoyer the job within the span of 24 hours. Important to note than while Johnny Manziel may not be ready for primetime, Hoyer, while technically a veteran, is coming off knee surgery and has only four career starts under his belt.

NFL Gambling Update: So far so good for Ravens' run-game

08.20.2014     07:18 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

A few weeks back we linked to an article on Baltimore's need of a better rushing attach. Last season the Ravens ranked 30th in the league at 83 ypg. First-year offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak had said that he wants this to be a run-first offense. Through two preseason games, the run-game appears to be on the upswing. The Ravens rolled up 151 yards (4.87 ypc) vs. Dallas and 237 yards (4.9 ypc) vs. San Francisco. All told they've run the ball 79 times. But before bettors get too excited, note that the defenses for the Cowboys and 49ers were extremely banged up (111 combined points allowed in four games).


"I feel good about the run game so far, and we temper it with the fact that it’s two games in the preseason, and what matters is what you do when it counts," Harbaugh said. "[There is] a long way to go to be where we need to be to have the kind of success that we’re hoping to have.” 






NFL Gambling News: Ravens, Kubiak hope for better run game

08.06.2014     06:14 AM     View Original Blog
Good article on Baltimore Ravens first-year offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak. A lot of talk about running the football, something the Ravens struggled to do last season. They ranked 30th in the league at 83.0 ypg.


“We’re done if we don’t have a running game,” said Harry Swayne, the Ravens’ director of player development and a starting tackle on Denver’s Super Bowl teams. “If we don’t, it’s going to be a tough year. We have to be patient, because there is a learning curve. It’s not just that it’s a new offense. A large part of the change is a new philosophy.”

“He has Texas all over him and he’ll talk to anybody,” Swayne said. “He’s a players’ coach, a back-of-the-bus kind of guy with a good sense of humor. But he works hard and he has his work to do here. But he made it work in Houston, and he’ll make it work here. Again, patience is a key.”

NFL Handicapping: Pittsburgh goes all in on no-huddle

08.20.2014     07:07 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on Pittsburgh's no-huddle offense which finally started to click late last season.


"I think it can almost be our base offense," Roethlisberger said. "Even if we're huddling and calling plays, we're calling a lot of no-huddle plays in the huddle, if that makes sense. In the no-huddle, we pretty much have our whole playbook available.

"When we're hitting and we're going, it's a great weapon because we can keep people off balance."

"In the no-huddle, you're not just a passing offense," Haley told USA TODAY Sports. "Our running game needs to be significantly better. You can't drop back and just throw it 50 times in this league and expect to win. At least not win the way we want to win."

CFL Betting News and Notes Week 8

08.19.2014     12:58 PM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are my CFL Week 8 News & Notes as I take a look at each team from a betting perspective.

Toronto Argonauts (3-5 SU, 3-5 ATS) 
Toronto had a busy Week 8 by playing two games in the span five days. They took advantage of their bye week by trouncing Winnipeg, 38-21, but the tables turned when BC took advantage of eight days off and really wore down the Argos late en route to a 33-17 win. Quarterback Ricky Ray and his new look receiving corps -- due to multiple injuries -- fired on all cylinders against Winnipeg as Ray tossed four touchdowns. But it was a different story against BC’s stout defense with the Argos scoring just a lone touchdown while also coughing up a few turnovers. Toronto can’t be held to too much blame for the BC loss as the schedule really conspired against them but it doesn’t get easier with a daunting road trip to Edmonton (6-1) on deck.

Montreal Alouettes (1-6 SU, 2-5 ATS) 
The change to quarterback Alex Brink didn’t result in a win as the Alouettes notched only 11 points in the loss to Saskatchewan but I did spot some positives with Brink under center. He managed to run out of the pocket for a few first downs and was able to move the football effectively between the 20’s. Unfortunately the red zone acted as a mouse trap for the Alouettes throughout the game where drives stalled and/or they turned the football over. A Brandon Whitaker fumble inside the 10-yard line set the tone early and they never recovered. The defense bounced back with their best performance in weeks but it was still not quite good enough. Montreal will be on the road for a second straight week against a rested Winnipeg team that has been off since last Tuesday. It will be interesting to see if an extra week of work can put Brink in a better position to succeed. Note that Winnipeg’s defense gave up an uncharacteristically high 38 points against Toronto last time out.

Ottawa RedBlacks (1-6 SU, 2-5 ATS) 
I give Ottawa credit as they competed toe-to-toe with one of the league’s best teams but ultimately couldn’t come up with its second win of the season. Edmonton prevailed 10-8 in a game dominated by defense and missed opportunities on offense. The box score will show that Ottawa quarterback Henry Burris didn’t have a good game with only 18 completions and 8 points but the number of dropped passes by Ottawa’s receivers was staggering. The defense had one of its best games of the season albeit against an Edmonton team that had some key injuries on offense. Ottawa earned a wire-to-wire pointspread cover as touchdowns underdogs at home despite the 10-8 loss. They’re catching +9 this week vs. the 6-1 Calgary Stampeders. The spot is certainly in Ottawa’s favor with a second straight home tilt while Calgary plays its second of back-to-back road games in the Eastern Time Zone. But there is a massive talent gap between the two teams as evidenced when Calgary demolished Ottawa 38-17 at McMahon Stadium two weeks ago.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats (1-6 SU, 1-5-1 ATS) 
Hamilton had yet another chance to win a close game at home against Calgary but a devastating fourth quarter injury to quarterback Dan LeFevour completely changed the complexion of the game. He left and didn’t return and now there is speculation his season may be done with a suspected torn ACL. With Hamilton trailing 23-20 with three minutes left, backup Jeremiah Masoli threw a horrific INT and Calgary later punched in a game clinching touchdown with mere seconds left. That crushed Hamilton bettors (including myself) holding +3, +3.5 or +4 as Calgary went on time win, 30-20. I’m not convinced Masoli is the answer which is a concern moving forward. Hamilton is now 1-6 despite a handful of tough losses by a touchdown or less and enter their bye week needing an answer under center. Zach Collaros is still an unknown as to when he will return and with LeFevour’s season possibly being done it’s either Masoli or their pair of practice roster quarterbacks, Stephen McGee or Jacory Harris. Hamilton’s is likely looking at the trade market with quality and experienced backups like Drew Tate (Calgary) and Kevin Glenn (BC) as potential candidates.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers (5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS) 
In my mind there was no doubt Winnipeg was due for regression following a 5-1 start. They have since lost back-to-back games against Saskatchewan and Toronto but certainly have a favorable chance to get back in the winning column against the reeling Montreal Alouettes on Friday. The Blue Bombers defense had its worst game of the season last week allowing 38 points and four touchdown passes to Ricky Ray and the Argos. Winnipeg has a couple of key defensive injuries to contend with but get a much needed boost offensively with the expected return of receiver Nick Moore. Montreal was competitive last week despite the 16-11 loss in Saskatchewan covering the number as double digit road dogs.

Edmonton Eskimos (6-1 SU, 6-1 ATS) 
Edmonton was far from sharp in its ugly win over Ottawa but a win is a win and good teams typically find ways to when their A-game isn’t present. The offense was bogged down as quarterback Mike Reilly had by far his worst game of the season and the absences of running back John White and wideout Fred Stamps certainly hindered a lot of their explosiveness. However, the contestant with his team has been their dominating defense which held true to form again as they smothered Ottawa’s offense for the entire 60 minutes. It’s becoming quite clear that if you have a mediocre offense, you are going to have a difficult time scoring in bunches against Edmonton. Edmonton returns home to face the best of the bad lot East Division when they take on Toronto.

Calgary Stampeders (6-1 SU, 5-2 ATS) 
The difference between the Stampeders now compared to earlier in the season is the improvement of quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell. Earlier this season, they were winning games in spite of Mitchell but now he is making an impact. His poise in the pocket continues to improve and he has done a very good job keeping Calgary’s offense productive despite cluster injuries at the skill positions. The defense remains strong allowing less than 20 points per game so to see the offense play at a higher level makes this team a very tough one to beat right now. Calgary might finally welcome back running back Jon Cornish this week vs. Ottawa.

Saskatchewan Roughriders (5-2 SU, 4-3 ATS) 
The Saskatchewan Roughriders were lethargic for the majority of their lackluster 16-11 win vs. Montreal after big wins over Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg. It was a classic letdown as they didn’t sniff a pointspread cover as nearly two touchdown favorites. The defense was solid but the offense never got in any sort of rhythm. Quarterback Darian Durant relies on a solid ground game to help complement the passing attack but the Riders’ top two receivers, Chris Getzlaf and Taj Smith, were blanketed for much of the game. The fact that the Roughriders still won shows how superior the West remains over the East. Saskatchewan will clash with BC (5-3) in a pivotal game within the ultra-competitive West Division.

BC Lions (5-3 SU, 4-3-1 ATS) 
One of the favorites to win the Grey Cup before the season started is finally getting their act together. BC notched a third straight win against Toronto on Sunday, 33-17. The Lions defense was tremendous but the offense was mediocre partially because of an odd decision by head coach Mike Benevides to pull Kevin Glenn for two offensive possessions in the second quarter. Travis Lulay, who stepped in for Glenn, was expected to be the starter prior to the season but needed more time to recover from offseason surgery. Now that he is healthy, he has already been given snaps in an actual game. Glenn came back in the game in the third quarter but was never the same and most of BC’s points came via defense and special teams. I would be surprised if Glenn doesn’t start this week but I wonder if the “musical chairs” will hurt the team’s chemistry and rhythm moving forward.

MLB Handicapper Free Play: Houston Astros at New York Yankees

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Houston (Oberholtzer) at NY Yankees (Capuano) -160 O/U 8.5 
Recommendation: Under


The Yankees return home to the Bronx after going 2-3 on their brief road trip.  Things could have been a lot worse as the Yankees stole two games against Tampa on Saturday and Sunday.  The Bronx Bombers have been anything but as they continue to struggle scoring runs.  They've scored just 14 runs in their last 7 games with the under going 6-1 in those contests.  The Houston Astros come into town tonight after a good offensive showing in Boston over the weekend.  Houston managed 24 runs while splitting the four-game set with the Red Sox.  The Yankees should have their hands full again tonight as Brett Oberholtzer takes the mound for the Astros.  Oberholtzer has gone 7 innings in each of his last three starts giving up five earned runs over that span.  He has been the Astros most consistent starter since the All-Star break.  New York counters with veteran Chris Capuano who has pitched well at Yankee Stadium in his first two starts.  Capuano has given up just 10 hits and 2 earned runs over 12.1 innings.  There is no telling when the Yankees will break out of their slump, it may even happen this week, but against a consistent starter like Oberholtzer the only way to look at this game is the Under.

NFL Preseason Gambling: Bettors react to Dallas' banged up defense

08.19.2014     07:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Due to multiple injuries the Dallas Cowboys' defense has been nothing short of awful this preseason. They've allowed a league-worst 6.8 yards per play and are unlikely to be at full strength at any point prior to the start of the regular season. Bettors have quickly picked up on the defense's shortcomings with Saturday's total vs. Miami bet up from 43.5 to as high as 45.5. They've also pounded Week 1's total vs. San Francisco. Earlier this summer it opened 48 but over the last week that number has climbed to 50.5.

 

"I thought we simply made more stops than we did in the previous game against San Diego," Garrett said. "There were some good things. Obviously we've got to get better in a lot of different areas and we got to get some of these guys back to see them play but there's good competition for some of the starting spots and good competition down the line too."

NFL Handicapping: Despite subpar results, Tampa has high hopes for Tedford's offense

08.19.2014     07:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on Tampa Bay's love affair with offensive coordinator Jeff Tedford's new system. You wouldn't know it by the two preseason box scores with the Bucs averaging 4.3 yards per play and 12 points per game.


“That's why I love the no huddle,” Bucs right tackle Demar Dotson said. “It keeps the defense off balance. And that really slows down the pass rushers, because they can't get down into their stance or think about what they're going to do. It really should play to our advantage.”

“Coach Tedford does a great job of drawing out those plays, and I think it's going to allow us to be dynamic both in the run game and the pass game,” wide receiver Chris Owusu said. “It's a fun scheme.”

College Football Gambling Alert: Sportsbooks take Ohio State-Navy off the board following Miller injury

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Ohio State's Braxton Miller reportedly re-injured his shoulder during yesterday's practice and is awaiting results on an MRI. During Braxton's absence last year, the Buckeyes didn't miss a beat with Kenny Guiton (14-2 TD-INT ratio) under center. Guiton however has since graduated leaving redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett as the team's top option. Barrett obviously has no game experience but saw plenty of work in spring practice while Braxton was recovering from offseason shoulder surgery. The Buckeyes open the season at Navy. Prior to Miller's injury, OSU was a 17-point road favorite. Most sportsbooks have since taken the game off the board.

NFL Handicapping: League says new rules are here to stay

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Who's ready for some NFL totals in the 60's? The league says that it won't budge on its “points of emphasis.” They are convinced that players and coaches will eventually adjust. This preseason has featured an average of 23.7 penalties per game. Last year's regular season averaged 12.7.


“The way the game’s being officiated now is the way it’s going to be officiated when the season begins,” Blandino said. “We have to remain consistent. I knew we’d see a spike in calls when we put out these points of emphasis. But coaches adjust, and players adjust. They have to, and they know it. And we’ll correct our officials when we feel they’re being over-zealous with certain calls. Plus, I would say that between 70 and 75 percent of the calls I’ve gotten from teams after their games this preseason are asking the question, Why weren’t there more calls? I had a call today from a team with seven questions, and six were, Why wasn’t a foul called on this play?”

College Football Gambling: Purdue names sophomore Etling starting QB

08.18.2014     12:57 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There weren't many BCS conference passing attacks as bad as Purdue last season as the Boilermakers ranked 108th nationally in QB Rating (111.8). Rob Henry was nothing short of a disaster and midseason the Boilermakers went the youth route with freshman Danny Etling. Etling took his lumps but did close the season strong (67%, 670 yards, 6 TDs, 2 INTs) albeit against much softer competition (Penn State, Illinois, and Indiana). Second-year head coach Darrell Hazell recently named Etling the team's Week 1 starter vs. Western Michigan. The Boilermakers are currently 11-point home chalk.

NFL Preseason Betting: Coughlin not pleased with new offense

New York Giants at -New York Jets- pk O/U 42.5

The New York Giants may be a perfect 3-0 SU/ATS this preseason but the first-team offense under first-year coordinator Ben McAdoo has looked extremely poor. Eli Manning is 7-for-16 for 49 yards as he adjusts to first-year offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's new system. Because the Giants played in the Hall of Fame game, Friday's matchup vs. the Jets is likely the last time the starters will play -- assuming they perform up to Tom Coughlin’s satisfaction.


"They'd better," Coughlin said in his Sunday conference call. "Because it's not written in stone about what you do in that last preseason game."

"I don't know that there's any way to put it but that," Coughlin said. "The last few years, we've had what would have to be looked at as unproductive games in preseasons and we've still been able to come out and perform early on in regular seasons. But is it a concern? Yes it is."
