NHL Handicapper Free Play: Colorado Avalanche at Arizona Coyotes

11.25.2014     10:15 AM     Sammy P Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Sammy P Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Colorado +115 at Arizona O/U 5.5 
Recommendation: Colorado


Colorado heads to Arizona tonight with both teams underperforming in the standings.  The Avalanche have to be the bigger disappointment of the two as no one predicted the Coyotes to make much noise in the West.  Despite the teams taking up two of the last three spots in the Western Conference, one team is heading in the right direction while the other remains stagnant.  The Avalanche dug themselves into a pretty big hole early in the season, losing six of their first seven games.  But they look to have righted the ship with three wins in their last four games and perhaps a season defining moment in their come-from-behind victory on Saturday night against the Carolina Hurricanes.  I am always looking for positive momentum and confidence building situations with good teams, and it looks like we have just that after the Avs mounted a two-goal comeback in the second and third periods to win 4-3.  They are still playing without a few key players in their lineup, but they have been plugging and playing just fine with their call ups from the AHL.  Arizona has been in a funk all season long and they aren't coming out of it soon.  Their goaltender Mike Smith is the only reason this team isn't last in the NHL in points as Smith has stood tall in net for the Coyotes. This should play out in a low scoring contest as we have seen recently from both of these teams.  Colorado is getting a nice dog price in a situation where they are playing the better hockey, and coming in with much more confidence.  This is the time to ride out this win streak with a talented team that has underachieved to date.

College Football Gambling: A this point who ISN'T betting against Florida State?

11.25.2014     07:15 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It isn't uncommon to see 3-4 point line moves the first few weeks of the college football season but once November hit, unless there is a significant injury, opening and closing numbers are typically in the ballpark of one another. An exception, of course, has been the Florida State Seminoles who aren't just seeing betting market resistance but rather one of the biggest week-to-week fades in recent memory. Last week the Seminoles opened -20 vs. Boston College with offshore shops closing as low as -16.5. This week, bettors wasted no time taking the Florida Gators down from +10.5 to +7.  Line history courtesy of CRIS.

Mark Cuban makes fun of NFL's archaic stance on sports betting

11.24.2014     12:09 PM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mark Cuban spitting knowledge...


“I agree 100 percent,” Cuban said Saturday, via Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com.  “I think we’re the world’s biggest hypocrites when we say, ‘Oh, we don’t want you betting on our games,’ and then we get all excited about the sports betting line and people go to Vegas on trips won from the NBA or NFL.  I mean, it’s hugely hypocritical.”

“We’ll charge the casinos for information sources, video sources,” Cuban said.  “All you’ve got to do is look overseas.  You can go and legally bet on the NBA in the U.K. and a bunch of other countries, and they’re actually big customers of NBA video. . . .  So you’ve got a template already that’s legal in the rest of the world other than America.”

Judge says no-go on New Jersey sports betting

11.24.2014     11:58 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You didn't think for a second that they were going to rule in favor of New Jersey sports betting, did you? Good. But hey, thanks to our wonderful judicial system, maybe we can just appeal them into submission.


"Obviously we're disappointed, but not terribly surprised," said Dennis Drazin, adviser to Darby Development LLC, operators of Monmouth Park Racetrack. "After analyzing the rationale expressed by the Court in granting a temporary restraining order last month, today's action was rather expected. We will once again return to the Third Circuit Court of Appeals and ask that they order strict adherence to their 2013 decision, which established the roadmap for New Jersey to begin offering sports wagering.

"We continue to believe that New Jersey has the right to allow sports betting in the state and we will keep up the fight in court," State Senate President Steve Sweeney said in a statement. "We are going to continuing pursuing every legal option available. The economic impact that sports wagering can have on New Jersey is far too important to simply shrug our shoulders and move on."

College Football Betting Preview: Ole Miss Rebels at Arkansas Razorbacks

11.21.2014     09:51 AM     Alatex Sports     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Alatex Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mississippi at Arkansas 
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS 
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi -3 O/U 45.5 
CRIS Current: Mississippi -3.5 O/U 45 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Mississippi -2 
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Under

Last week Arkansas was finally able to notch its first SEC win in two years with a shutout of LSU, 17-0. Arkansas improved to 5-5 with the win and now looks for back-to-back home wins with Ole Miss coming to town. The Rebels were off last week after dominating Presbyterian, 48-0, to end a two-game losing streak.

Ole Miss will be without its top offensive weapon, WR Laquan Treadwell, who broke his ankle on the Rebels’ last play against Auburn three weeks ago. His loss could be huge for the Rebel offense, which has struggled for the most part this year, especially against good defenses. Ole Miss rose to a top ranking last month based on its defense, but that side of the ball let Ole Miss down in its two losses to LSU and Auburn. LSU only scored 10 points, but they were able to control the game with their power running game. LSU ran for 264 yards on 55 carries and controlled the clock for 36 minutes.

Auburn was also able to dominate the line of scrimmage and run effectively against the Ole Miss defense as well. The Tigers were also able to cash in their possessions with touchdowns in the 35-31 win. Auburn finished with 253 yards rushing on 46 carries and held the ball for 32 minutes.

Those two games are cause for concern this week for Ole Miss on the road. Arkansas’ preferred method of moving the ball is with its power running game. The Hogs average 233 yards per game on 5.5 yards per carry. They will definitely have a chance to win this game if they can approach those numbers again this week, and the Ole Miss defense has shown vulnerability in that area as stated above.

The factor that lines up in Ole Miss’ favor is the scheduling spot. Ole Miss had a bye last week and an easy game two weeks ago against Presbyterian, so they should be healthy other than Treadwell and LB Denzel Nkemdiche, who is also out for the year. Throw in the fact that Arkansas is coming off the huge win over LSU and faces a likely letdown spot.

I am tempted to take Ole Miss here, but would prefer not to lay over a field goal. I just don’t trust the Rebels laying this much on the road against an Arkansas team that matches up well with their weaknesses.

Instead, the play here should be the under. Both teams managed 17 points in games against LSU and this game seems to be set up similarly as those two LSU games. Look for lots of running and Ole Miss should stiffen in the red zone as they did against LSU.

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at UCLA Bruins

11.21.2014     09:42 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
USC at UCLA 
Saturday, 5 pm PT -ABC 
CRIS Opener:
UCLA -3.5 O/U 60.5 
CRIS Current: UCLA -4 O/U 61.5 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: UCLA -2 
Ian Cameron’s Recommendation: Over

USC and UCLA both control their own destinies heading into Saturday’s pivotal showdown. UCLA needs two wins against USC and Stanford to to clinch the PAC-12 South while USC needs a win and a single Arizona State loss in the Sun Devils’ last two games to clinch.

Both defenses appear to be wearing down here in the month of November as a result of lack of depth. USC is still feeling the impact of the scholarship reductions having allowed 24+ points in five of their last six games. The only time they didn’t was against Washington State when Connor Halliday was injured in the first half.

UCLA’s offense started off the season sputtering but we’ve seen Brett Hundley and the Bruins offensive attack pick up their play during their current four-game winning streak. UCLA has scored 28+ points in six of their last seven games and all of those games totaled 400+ yards for the offense.

USC’s offense should be able to put up points as well and Cody Kessler will be highly motivated after being on the short end of a 35-14 decision last season. USC has scored 28 or more points in all but one PAC-12 contest this season and will get to face a UCLA defense that has underperformed much of the season. The Bruins defense was hailed by many as being one of the best stop units in the nation prior to the season but were clearly overrated. Even during UCLA’s current winning streak, they allowed 30, 37 and 34 points in three of those games they were forced to outscore the opposition.

With USC in revenge mode for last season’s debacle at the Coliseum I would lean slightly to the Trojans catching more than a FG. But I feel the better way to play this game is to look at the total. I expect an entertaining and high scoring affair and will play it over at the current number of 61.

College Football Betting Preview: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Nebraska Cornhuskers

11.21.2014     09:32 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota at Nebraska 
Saturday, 9am PT - ESPN 
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -10.5 O/U 56.5 
CRIS Current: Nebraska -10 O/U 56 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: Nebraska -9 
Rob Veno’s Recommendation: Over

Pair of significant setbacks last week for each of these teams makes this a mental toughness test. Nebraska’s humiliating loss at Wisconsin where Badgers went on an incredible 56-7 run has many again questioning their defense and Bo Pelini. A convincing bounce back effort is mandatory for the Cornhuskers internally and also to try and restore their reputation outside the locker room.

Despite their home loss to Ohio State last Saturday, the Golden Gophers enter this contest with some confidence after losing control of the OSU game in the second half but then rallying to make things close at the end. It’s a long shot, but Minnesota could still win the Big Ten West by finishing with a victory here and one at Wisconsin. There’s plenty to play for on both sidelines in this one.    
  
The obvious fundamental key in this game is the Nebraska run defense which was tortured by Wisconsin’s ground assault led by Heisman candidate Melvin Gordon. The 581 rushing yards allowed is embarrassing and while Minnesota’s run game isn’t at the level of Wisconsin’s, it’s still what they’re predicated on (223.7 ypg). Over 70% of the Golden Gophers offensive plays this season have been runs which means Nebraska will have eight in the box looking to stop relentless David Cobb (135 ypg, 5.3 ypc) and force quarterback Mitch Leidner make plays. The Minnesota passing game is one dimensional with play action being their only way to throw effectively. The defensive game plan sounds simple enough but remember that just two weeks ago against a formidable Iowa run defense, Minnesota established the run and Leidner had his best statistical game of the season going 10-of-13 with four touchdowns and an astronomical QB rating of 267.63. 

Things should come much easier offensively for the Huskers who also like to run first with their star back Ameer Abdullah. His game breaking ability was negated last week by Wisconsin’s tough run defense and by the fact that Nebraska was in catch up mode the entire second half. The task figures to be easier in this spot since Minnesota ranks 55th nationally against the run as opposed to Wisconsin’s 5th rated unit. Facing a drop in class of rush defense will help Nebraska but more importantly, Ohio State again exposed Minnesota last week as a defense that does not handle the QB run in the read option. J.T. Barrett went wild last week gaining 189 yards on 11 carries (11.1 avg) and Nebraska’s Tommy Armstrong possesses running ability (team’s 2nd leading rusher 58.8 ypg). In their only other contest versus a running threat at QB, TCU’s Trevonne Boykin tallied 92 yards (7.7 ypc) en-route to a 30-7 victory. Expect Nebraska to come at Minnesota with their running duo of Armstrong-Abdullah.

This game is a true test because the offenses contain strengths and weaponry that can exploit the other. Which defense can cover up their weaknesses the best? Inclination here is to believe Nebraska’s scheme and speed on offense will be more effective. Even though they’re a shade below the Ohio State and TCU level, the Cornhuskers still have the home run type capability in their read option and play action areas. NU will score their share but laying -10 just isn’t wise against a confident team like Minnesota. If the Gophers can avoid the turnovers that hurt them last week, they can stick around in this one. My power ratings made this game Nebraska -9 which is very tight to the current number so there’s not a lot of value. The weather looks to be fine in Lincoln Saturday afternoon leaving no concerns in that area. Minnesota is playing just their second road game in the last six weeks and fourth overall this season going 1-2 ats with a straight up loss at Illinois. Feel Nebraska is going to have a strong day on offense in this one but also feel that Jerry Kill will outmaneuver Pelini. With that mindset I’ll lean slightly toward over 56 in a game where Nebraska wins in the vicinity of 34-24.

College Football Betting Preview: Appalachian State Mountaineers at UL-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns

Appalachian State at UL-Lafayette 
Saturday, 11 am PT - ESPN3 
CRIS Opener:
UL-Lafayette -11 O/U 62.5 
CRIS Current: UL-Lafayette -9 O/U 63 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: UL-Lafayette -14 
Paul Stone's Recommendation: UL-Lafayette

Saturday's Sun Belt showdown down on the Louisiana bayou Saturday afternoon features a pair of teams which struggled during the season's opening half, but have found their stride and are definitely playing their best football at the present.

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns (7-3 on the season, 6-0 in conference) entertain the Appalachian State Mountaineers (5-5, 4-2) Saturday in a matchup of high-powered offenses.

Both teams endured rough stretches earlier in their season before rebounding in conference action.

The Ragin' Cajuns survived a three-game September losing streak, stumbling badly to a trio of eventual bowl teams _ Louisiana Tech, Mississippi and Boise State _ by an average of 31 points. The Mountaineers, meanwhile, stood at 1-5 on Oct. 11 after falling at home to FCS entry Liberty, 55-48, in overtime.

The arrival of fall has produced better results for both of these slow starters which feature solid run games.

Louisiana-Lafayette, which has been one of the SBC's better programs in recent years, is now riding a six-game win streak, scoring 34 or more points in five of those victories.

Dual threat quarterback Terrance Broadway, a savvy veteran who began his collegiate career at the University of Houston, guides the Cajuns' offensive ship and is capable to wreaking havoc with both his arm and legs.

Elijah McGuire, a 5-11, 198-pound sophomore out of Houma, La., leads Louisiana-Lafayette in both rushing (127 carries for 960 yards) and receiving (35 receptions for 379 yards), while physical, downhill runner Alonzo Harris (591 rushing yards) and Broadway (554) contribute to the ground assault which averages 231 yards per game to rank No. 22 in the nation.

Since losing to Liberty, Appalachian State has reeled off four straight victories to even their overall record at 5-5.

Sophomore tailback Marcus Cox has been one of the primary reasons behind the Mountaineers' uprising. The 5-10, 200-pounder from Dacula, Ga. has carried the ball 194 times for 1,142 yards (5.9 yards per carry) this season and scored 15 touchdowns. During the Mountaineers' four-game winning streak, he has averaged 174 yards rushing, including outputs of 250 against Georgia State and 229 last week at Arkansas State.

During their respective streaks, Louisiana-Lafayette and Appalachian State have proven profitable to their backers. The Cajuns have covered all six games during their recent run, while the Mountaineers are 3-1 ATS during their mini-streak.

Although the home team is favored by 10 points at most books, some shops do have the game lined at -9/-9.5. I recommend shopping around and taking Louisiana-Lafayette.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Charlotte 49ers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

Charlotte vs. South Carolina -2.5 O/U 135 
Recommendation: Over


If you've watch any college basketball this season you'll notice a lot of low scores and game going under the total. The betting markets are pretty much blind betting every game under the total off of the opener. Any rightfully so as slow pace, lack of fouls, and zone defense seem to be the new trend, especially in power conference play. This however presents opportunities to play overs on cheaper prices when you can find games that project to play fast with so-so defenses. I think we have the with South Carolina and Charlotte. The 49ers are the quintessential over team: good offense, fast pace, average defense. We saw it yesterday when they produced 166 points in regulation against Penn State (Charlotte won 106-97 in 2OT). The Gamecocks meanwhile have played three relatively slow paced, low scoring games against North Florida, Baylor, and Cornell. North Florida runs but doesn't match up well vs. bigger more athletic teams. Baylor and Cornell tend to play slow. Frank Martin's team typically play at an above average pace and while projected to be a better defensive team they still grade out as average at this point. With the total sitting at 135 we don't need a track meet just a nice steady flow and a point per possession from both squads.

NFL Gambling Alert: Buffalo-Miami moved to Monday in Detroit

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Because of the Snowpocalypse the took place in Buffalo, Sunday's game between the Bills and Dolphins has been canceled and moved to Monday night in Detroit. Can't imagine there being more the 45, 50 fans in attendance. As for the line history, the game originally opened Buffalo -4 O/U 40 and was bet down to -3 (-120) O/U 39. With the game now shifted to a neutral venue the Bills are -2.5 with juice/-3 even money with a total of 41.5.

NFL Gambling Preview: Detroit Lions at New England Patriots

Detroit at New England 
Sunday, 10 am PT - FOX 
CRIS Opener:
New England -6 O/U 48 
CRIS Current: New England -7 O/U 47.5 
Rob Veno’s Power Rating: New England -9 
Teddy Covers’ Recommendation: Under

On the one hand, the Patriots are as hot as any team in the NFL right now, reeling off six straight wins since that Monday Night Football debacle at Kansas City, while going 5-1 ATS in the process.  That includes impressive blowouts over the likes of Denver, Indy and Cincinnati the three teams that would win the other three AFC Divisions if the season ended today.  The Pats currently are a full game better than any team in the conference, with tiebreaker wins against all of them. As of now, the road to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro.

But on the other hand, the betting markets are telling us clearly that they don't believe that the Patriots are a truly elite ballclub.  This line opened in the -6.5 range, as opposed to at -7, and every time it has inched above -7 this week, wiseguy $$ has come in on Detroit, driving the pointspread back down to -7.   The Pats are a clear 'public' choice on Sunday, but there is no shortage of sharp action on the Lions plus the points.

What are the wiseguys seeing that the public is not? Well, the public loves good offense more than good defense, and Bill Belichick's ability to uniquely gameplan for each opponent has led to a run of seven consecutive New England Overs.  The Pats have hung 37+ five times in their last six ballgames, with point totals of 51, 43 and 42 in their last three ballgames, coming close to eclipsing those Overs by themselves.

Detroit's defense is a lot better than Indy's defense, particularly at the line of scrimmage.  Last week, New England rushes for 244 yards on national TV, turning unknown RB Jonas Gray into a four TD superstar in the course of a single evening.  For much of the game, the Patriots utilized six offensive linemen, simply pushing around the Colts front seven on defense.  That's not likely to happen against the Lions stout front, a unit that leads the NFL in both fewest rushing yards allowed per game and per attempt.  The onus here will be on Tom Brady's ability to throw the football against Detroit's fierce pass rush.

The Lions offense hasn't exactly lit the world on fire this season, a consistently underperforming unit.  The last time Detroit scored more than 24 points in a ballgame AND the last time everyone cashed an Over ticket at the closing number (some won, some lost and some pushed betting the Over in their game against New Orleans) came all the way back in Week 1, when they blew out the Giants on national TV on Monday Night Football.  The Pats high scoring offense has gotten plenty of headlines, but Detroit's stellar defensive front and extended run of Unders hasn't garnered much publicity at all.

The Lions managed only a pair of field goals last week in Arizona.  Calvin Johnson is a shell of himself these days, with less than 200 receiving yards and only a single TD since Week 3!  Leading rushers Joique Bell and Reggie Bush are both averaging only 3.6 yards per carry.  Matthew Stafford has looked jumpy and skittish in the pocket for extended stretches.  Look for defense to rule the day in Foxboro on Sunday.  Take the Under.

No, Kentucky would not be betting favorites over the Philadelphia 76ers

11.20.2014     01:33 PM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seems like we go over this every year with people claiming that some awesome college team would crush some lousy pro team. In this instance, Kentucky, who has played all of three games -- one of which vs. Grand Canyon -- would beat the 0-11 Philadelphia 76ers outright. Thankfully someone contacted a real oddsmakers who priced Philly as 17-point mythical chalk.
