College Football Betting Preview: Arizona State Sun Devils at Arizona Wildcats

Arizona State at Arizona

CRIS Opener:
Arizona -2.5 O/U 62.5 
CRIS Current: Arizona -2.5 O/U 62.5 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Arizona pk 
Ian Cameron's Recommendation: See Analaysis

This year’s edition of the Territorial Cup could determine the PAC-12 South's representative in the conference championship game. Arizona State and Arizona both need a win here combined with a UCLA loss to Stanford to punch their ticket punch. Arizona won last week’s game against Utah going away 42-10 despite losing starting quarterback Anu Solomon to an ankle injury in the second half. He was replaced by the senior Jesse Scroggins who was a steady game manager the rest of the way. He completed only 3-of-5 passes but wisely relied on freshman running back Nick Wilson who rushed for over 200 yards. Solomon’s status still remains uncertain as of Friday morning.

On the flip side, Arizona State certainly has found their groove offensively with Taylor Kelly in tp form after returning from injury. ASU posted 134 points in its last three games against Notre Dame, Oregon State and Washington State. Running back D.J. Foster is averaging a healthy 5.7 yards per carry on the ground and the return of wideout Jaelen Strong (71 receptions, 982 yards, and 9 TDs) puts the Sun Devils in good position for more offensive production.

Solomon has struggled of late with 45% completions his last four games but for continuity sake, you’d like to see him play if you are going to support the Wildcats. Without him, even with the likelihood of ASU money, I’d still prefer the Sun Devils and possibly over the total. the Sun Devils and/or a play on the over. These teams have played wild shootouts in each of the last two years with 75 and 79 points,respectively. Note also that Rich Rod has yet to beat the Sun Devils since taking over in Tucson.

College Football Betting Preview: Auburn Tigers at Alabama Crimson Tide

Auburn at Alabama 
Saturday, 4:45 pm PT - ESPN 
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -9.5 O/U 53.5 
CRIS Current: Alabama -9 O/U 54 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Alabama -8.5 
Brent Crow's Recommendation: Alabama

The biggest rivalry game in the country once again has extreme national title implications, just as it has for the past three years. Auburn pulled off the miracle win last year and wound up in the national title game against Florida State. That field goal return for the winning score has stuck in the craw of Alabama fans for 365 days and the Tide would love nothing more than to seal the SEC West title with a win over Auburn.

Three or four weeks ago, it looked like this could possibly be for all the marbles in a winner take all affair, but Auburn’s two losses have reduced them to potential spoiler. Auburn did not play well in its loss to Georgia two weeks ago, and then struggled again last week in a win over Samford. Most of that probably came from a lack of focus against the lowly Bulldogs, but Auburn is showing some signs of trouble on offense. A big part of the problem has been the absence of WR  D’haquille Williams, their leading receiver and go to guy on third down. Williams has missed the last two games with a sprained right knee, but is probable to return this week. His presence would be huge to the Tigers offense.

Alabama also looked sluggish at times in last week’s win/scrimmage against Western Carolina. They had some scares in the game with three starters and six players in all leaving the game with injuries. The most important was WR Amari Cooper, who might be the best receiver in the nation this year. Cooper left after one series last week but has been pronounced ready to go this week.

I actually expected the Tide to be a bigger favorite here. They wound up closing as ten-point favorites against Mississippi State a couple of weeks ago in a game that they won 25-20. That is the only home game Alabama has played that was remotely close, and they had control of it for most of the contest. Alabama has been much better at home than on the road as well, and I looked for a number closer to -14.

I understand the rivalry and realize that anything could happen in this game, but in the long run Alabama at home is going to beat Auburn the way they are playing right now more often than not. I have a feeling this could turn out like the Auburn-Georgia game as the Tide will roll to an easy win.

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Florida State Seminoles

Florida at Florida State 
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN 
CRIS Opener:
Florida State -10.5 O/U 52 
CRIS Current: Florida State -7 O/U 53 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Florida State -10.5 
Paul Stone's Recommendation: Florida

Turn the page back to lateThanksgiving 2010, and Will Muschamp was at or near the top of almost everyone's list of young college coaches on the rise and perhaps destined for head coaching greatness.

Muschamp, then the University of Texas' defensive coordinator and that school's so-called "coach in waiting," had earned the reputation of being a talented recruiter and hard-nosed coordinator who had demanded the best out of his defenses at high profile places such as LSU, Auburn and Texas.

After being named the Longhorns' coach-in-waiting in 2008, Muschamp was expected to succeed Mack Brown upon the coaching legend's still to be determined retirement.

As fate would have it, Muschamp did not become Texas' head coach, instead taking the University of Florida head job in December 2010 after the sudden retirement of Urban Meyer. Meanwhile, Brown, who guided Texas to the 2005 national championship and played for another four years later, was forced out as the Longhorns' head coach at the end of the 2013 season.

"Coach Muschamp is a great hire for the University of Florida," said Meyer, who is now Ohio State's head coach, in a statement at the time of Muschamp's hiring. "He is a relentless recruiter and brings a tremendous amount of energy and passion to the game. I would run into him on the road often on the recruiting trail and have always been impressed with him as a coach and a person."

Like Brown, however, recent history proved unkind to Muschamp as the predicted success never came to fruition.

Saturday's road contest against defending champion Florida State will be his last regular season game as the Gators' head coach. Earlier this month, Florida Athletics Director Jeremy Foley announced that Muschamp would be stepping down at the conclusion of this season. Muschamp has gone a mediocre 28-20 during his term at Florida, including seven straight losses to end the 2013 season. His teams have sputtered offensively due, at least in part, to sub-standard quarterback play. Special teams snafus have also plagued the Gators at times during his tenure.

Before riding off into the sunset, Muschamp's Gators will travel to Tallahassee intent on derailing the repeat national title hopes of reigning Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston and the Seminoles.

Florida State opened as a 10-point favorite Sunday afternoon at at least one Las Vegas sportsbook, but the betting public has backed underdog Florida with the line at 7.5 at most shops as of late Wednesday afternoon. Although the Seminoles own a 27-game win streak, they have been far from invincible this season, amassing only a 3-7 ATS record.

Florida State, which is ranked No. 3 in the most recent playoff rankings, has trailed at halftime in five of its eight conference victories this season, with five of its wins this season ultimately coming by a touchdown or less.

Despite his shortcomings in Gainesville, Muschamp has compiled a money-making 5-2 ATS record when cast as an away underdog. Based on the Seminoles' mode of operation during 2014 and a likely "all-in" effort by the Gators, I'll recommend taking Florida plus 7.5 points.

NFL Gambling Preview: New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers

11.27.2014     06:44 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New England at Green Bay 
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - CBS 
CRIS Opener:
Green Bay -3 O/U 57 
CRIS Current: Green Bay -3 O/U 57.5 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Green Bay -1.5 
Teddy Covers' Recommendation: Under

NFL Totals don’t get much higher than this, with the current Over/Under posted in the 57.5/58 range for Sunday’s Patriots – Packers clash.  And I can certainly understand why this total is posted in this range – we’re looking at two teams that rank #1 and #2 in points scored this season; two teams with elite quarterbacks playing at the top of their game; and two teams that are a combined 12-2 to the Over since the beginning of October.

But all of that is most assuredly factored into this inflated number – the bookmakers and the betting markets aren’t flying blind at this late stage of the season.  Game temperatures at Lambeau Field are expected to be below freezing at kickoff, with the lookahead weather forecast showing the potential for foggy conditions as well (never a good thing for either downfield passing game).  And both teams are likely to emphasize the run on Sunday, efforting to control the clock, control the gameflow and keep the opposing elite quarterback off the field.

And make no mistake about it – we’re talking about two Super Bowl caliber defenses here!  Both the Packers and the Patriots rank among the top dozen NFL defenses according to Football Outsiders DVOA rankings.  Green Bay hasn’t allowed more than 20 points in any game on this field since Week 2.  They’ve held nine of their last ten foes to 24 points or less.  Cornerbacks Tremon Williams and Sam Shields have been stellar all year; while safeties Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have kept nearly everything in front of them.

The Patriots are a team capable of changing their gameplan completely from one week to the next.  Two weeks ago, New England spent more than half the game in a power run formation with six offensive linemen, grounding out yards against the Colts.  Last week, the Pats opened the game with a 52-13 pass-to-run ratio before garbage time against the Lions.  In this particular matchup, I’m expecting a classic Belichick switcheroo back to a run-first attack; looking to keep Aaron Rodgers off the field as much as possible and to take advantage of a Packers run defense that’s a notch or two weaker than their pass D.

New England’s defense has held nine of their last ten opponents to 25 points or less, controlling the flow week after week.  And the strength of that defense, much like that of the Packers, is in the secondary.  Darrelle Revis and Alfonzo Dennard are both legitimate shutdown corners.  Safeties Devin McCourtey and Patrick Chung simply don’t get burned deep very often.  Last week in this space, I recommended a play on the Patriots Under vs. Detroit an it cashed thanks to the Pats keeping the Lions out of the end zone.  I don’t think New England keeps Green Bay out of the end zone here, but I’m certainly not expecting a shootout in which both teams approach 30 points, and that’s what it’ll take to cash an Over ticket.  Take the Under.

College Football Betting Preview: Oregon Ducks at Oregon State Beavers

Oregon at Oregon State 
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC 
CRIS Opener:
Oregon -20 O/U 67 
CRIS Current: Oregon -19.5 O/U 67 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Oregon -19.5 
Andrew Lange's Recommendation: Over

The 118th Civil War rivalry takes place on Saturday as the Oregon Ducks continue their quest towards a playoff berth. Oregon State (5-6) meanwhile has one last chance to reach bowl eligibility.

The Ducks have won six straight in the series, three of which by 24 points or more. Last year's narrow 36-35 Oregon win need to be put in context as the previous week the Ducks lost to Arizona which all but ended their hopes of a BCS bowl berth. The Beavers were also a far more capable team with a 4-4 PAC-12 record heading into that contest.

Following a soft early season schedule (4-1) the Beavers have trended in the wrong direction with just one win; albeit against a quality Arizona State squad. They are once again very one dimensional showing little to no ability to run the football. The outlier is their 247-yard performance vs. ASU. Note that two runs of 78 and 66 yard accounted for well over half of the team's production. And true to form, last week OSU produced only 47 yards on 23 carries in a blowout loss to Washington.

Oregon has transformed from money burner to money earner having covered six straight after starting the season 1-4 ATS. But this is a tricky pointspread when you consider Oregon's four PAC-12 games were won by margin of 7, 12, 18, and 24.

It's poor form to look at the game through the lense of Oregon needing a big win order to maintain its status in the playoff rankings. If Oregon wins by 1 or 30 it likely won't have a significant impact so long as they win the PAC-12 Championship. That said, the fundamentals obviously point towards the road side which is what I look at nine times out of 10. Spirited effort and a chance to slip through the backdoor are possibilities with the Beavers but it just isn't enough to warrant to strong play. I do expect a "kitchen sink" approach from OSU and coupled with a pass heavy scheme and the likelihood of playing from behind, enough possessions and clock to play over so long as the weather cooperates.

College Football Betting Preview: Notre Dame Fighting Irish at USC Trojans

Notre Dame at USC 
Saturday, 12:30 pm - FOX 
CRIS Opener:
USC -6.5 O/U 62.5 
CRIS Current: USC -7 O/U 62.5 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: USC -5 
OTTO Sports' Recommendation: Over

Not much fanfare to this one with Notre Dame and USC both 7-4 and off disappointing efforts. There's certainly element of "rivalry" to consider but in the end, it's just another football game.

We've documented at length Notre Dame's inability to hang on to the football. The team's overall turnover margin doesn't look bad (-2) but the Irish were +8 after three games and to their defense's credit, they've been able to somewhat offset their offensive miscues with 22 turnovers gained. But don't let the defense off the hook; it's a unit that has steadily regressed having allowed 40.3 ppg over its last six games. And it's my belief it is lack of effort as oppose to talent that is the root of the problem.

The issue with USC is do you trust them laying this type of margin against a comparable foe? The Trojans have blowout wins against Fresno State, Oregon State, Colorado, and Washington State. Against quality foes USC has exactly one win (at home vs. Cal) by more than a touchdown and it came by eight points -- and the Golden Bears are certainly on the "quality" fence.

In the end, is there really any trust with either team from a side perspective? With nothing to play for there's reason to believe this is going to be a relatively loose atmosphere. If making a play, the over seems to be the only viable option.

College Footbal Betting Preview: Mississippi State Bulldogs at Ole Miss Rebels

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Mississippi State at Mississippi 
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS 
CRIS Opener:
Mississippi State -1 O/U 49.5 
CRIS Current: Mississippi State -2 O/U 49.5 
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Mississippi State -2.5 
Rob Veno's Recommendation: Mississippi State

The intensity of this rivalry would be enough to guarantee fully focused and extremely emotional efforts from each of these teams but the added implications make this a multi-layered handicap.

For Ole Miss, its late season fade from national playoff contention can all be salvaged here with a victory that would end Mississippi State’s chance at a final four seat. That outcome would heal almost everything the Rebels have endured the past month. It would also avenge last season’s heart breaking 17-10 overtime loss. On the other sideline, Mississippi State knows that the Rebels are potentially the last obstacle keeping them from a chance to make the elite playoff field. The Bulldogs have already vowed this week that they’re going to come out swinging in this one so with Ole Miss stating much of the same, the mindset and emotional angles are cancelled out.  
              
What is intriguing here is how last Saturday’s results have thoroughly skewed the overall perception of these squads. Mississippi’s 30-0 loss at Arkansas looks much more dominant on the scoreboard than it was as six turnovers destroyed them. Arkansas returned an interception for seven of their points and scored the other 23 on drives of 52, 24, 49, 41 and 0 yards. The vaunted Razorbacks ground attack was held to just 159 yards on 50 attempts for an average of 3.2 per carry. Mississippi State possesses a much more diversified attack with QB Dak Prescott’s running and a solid passing attack. Their options for moving the football are similar to Auburn’s and the Tigers got Ole Miss for 35 points and 517 balanced yards (253 rushing, 254 passing) both the point and yardage totals are season highs against the Rebels defense. Still, Mississippi was a goal line fumble away from victory in that one and their defense was the most injured it’s been all season in that contest.            

Mississippi State has had defensive issues at times this season and it’s hard to tell just how good they will be in this game. Overall, their defensive numbers are infested with meaningless stats from six games against inferior opponents but their other four contests do show 1,703 yards allowed for an average of 426 per game. However, Mississippi’s offense does not have the capabilities of any of those teams (Texas A&M, Auburn, Arkansas, andAlabama). The Rebels have lacked any semblance of a ground game all season and with star WR Laquon Treadwell gone for the season, there’s no real strength to this offense. Mississippi State should be good enough to contain this Rebel offense which isn’t built to go on lengthy drives.        

Bo Wallace’s sprained ankle (injured last week but returned to play) doesn’t appear to be an issue and Mississippi will need an error free game from him if they want to win this contest. The defense can certainly help by tilting field position by producing three and outs or takeaways which would help greatly. However, the fact that the Bulldogs have gone on the road and played well against the defenses of LSU and Alabama bodes well for them in this spot. Prescott, RB Josh Robinson and their receiving corps all have explosiveness to them that Ole Miss just doesn’t have consistently.

Weather shouldn’t be a problem but the kicking game could be a determining factor. Since taking over the job midway through the season, Ole Miss freshman Gary Wunderlich has gone 4-of-5 on field goals and 2-of-2 between 40-49 yards. Can he hold up in this pressure environment is a real question. Bulldogs sophomore PK Evan Sobsiek is 9-of10 90% this season but all nine are from 39 yards and in (one attempt outside 40 yards and missed). Mississippi is more than good enough to win this game and Wallace could pair with Mississippi’s stout defense to get the victory but in the end I’m going to side ever so slightly with Mississippi State.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Colorado Avalanche at Arizona Coyotes

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.
