NFL Handicapper Betting Preview: Baltimore Ravens at Green Bay Packers

11.18.2017     08:52 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Baltimore at Green Bay
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Batimore -2.5 O/U 38
CRIS Current: Baltimore -2 O/U 38
Recommendation: Baltimore

We’ve seen the Packers offense for three games without Aaron Rodgers now, and Green Bay hasn’t been able to move the football effectively in any of them. Yes, the Packers were able to beat lowly Chicago by a TD last week; playing with a rookie QB in a game where Bears head coach John Fox literally gave away a touchdown with an ill-fated challenge. But they gained only 5.3 yards per play for the afternoon, converted only one of their three red zone chances into touchdowns, and did not pass the eye test any more than they did the previous week in a Monday Night Football home loss to the Lions.

To make matters worse for the Packers, the injury bug continues to bite Mike McCarthy’s squad. Their offensive line is riddled with key losses once again, with Brian Bulaga placed on IR and three starters listed as questionable for Sunday. They’ve got injuries all over the place on defense too, with Morgan Burnett, Nick Perry and Kevin King all questionable.

It doesn’t stop there either. Packers running backs Ty Montgomery and Aaron Jones, who have kept the pressure off Brett Hundley, are both banged up as well, with Jones out until December. And perhaps most importantly of all, Hundley hurt his hamstring last week. For a mobile QB who is at his best when moving out of the pocket and throwing on the run, that is most assuredly an impact injury, especially against the Ravens stout defensive front.

John Harbaugh’s teams have enjoyed great success off the bye. The Ravens are 7-2 SU after bye weeks in the Harbaugh era, including 2-1 on the road. That includes a 4-0 SU record against teams that enter the game with a winning record, like they’ll face here against the 5-4 Packers. Unlike Green Bay, Harbaugh’s squad is getting healthier; excellent news for a squad that was riddled with injuries right from the start of training camp. His quote: “I feel like we are more full strength than we have been all year.”

The Ravens season long statistics stink, in large part due to all the early injuries they suffered. Their 4.4 yards per play on offense, their -0.5 yards per play differential between offense and defense and Joe Flacco’s career worst 72.7 QB rating all look ugly for wiseguy bettors who peruse those stats closely. That ensures we’re NOT going to see any kind of significant market support for Baltimore this week, despite the fact that they are the superior and healthier squad, rested and ready off their bye. With Jeremy Maclin and Danny Woodhead both expected back on the field this week, those season long stats are more misleading than accurate for the Baltimore offense moving forward.

College Football Betting Preview: SMU Mustangs at Memphis Tigers

11.17.2017     10:33 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
SMU at Memphis
Saturday, 9 am PT - ESPNN
CRIS Opener: Memphis -11.5 O/U 77
CRIS Current: Memphis -12.5 O/U 71.5
Recommendation: SMU

Seen this total get played down nearly a touchdown due to forecasted winds in the 20+ mph range. That’s an obvious concern for two teams in SMU and Memphis that like to throw the football. The passing games will still be on display but the deep shots could be limited. In terms of running the ball, SMU could have an advantage with stronger conference numbers than Memphis. Against AAC foes, the Mustangs average 5.2 ypc and 181.8 ypg. The Tigers are a notch below at 4.7 ypc and 150.7 ypg. Defensively, there isn't much that separates either squad. Memphis' overall numbers are slightly better but SMU's took a hit after back-to-back games against the potent offenses of UCF and Navy in which the defense allowed nearly 8 ypp combined.

I think the real storyline here is the seemingly inflated pointspread. Memphis is one of the hottest teams in the country having won and covered five straight (some got a push in 30-27 win over Navy). As a result, their stock in the betting markets has climbed significantly. Two weeks ago, Memphis was laying -10.5 to Tulane at home and now -12.5 to SMU. From a power rating standpoint, the Mustangs would be over a field goal favorite vs. the Green Wave on a neutral field. And SMU closed only +1.5 at Navy just last week (lost 43-40). Wind or no wind, we're getting value with SMU. Take the points!

College Football Betting Preview: Virginia Cavaliers at Miami Hurricanes

Virginia at Miami
Saturday, 9 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener: Miami -17 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Miami -18.5 O/U 50.5
Recommendation: Virginia

Prior to beating Virginia Tech and Notre Dame, Miami posted narrow wins over Florida State (24-20), Georgia Tech (25-24), Syracuse (27-19), and North Carolina (24-19). Combined, those teams are currently 14-24. And from a power rating perspective, you could certainly lump Virginia into that mix. The Cavaliers actually beat UNC on the road and GT at home.

The Cavaliers aren't without issues. For starters, the ACC slate has been favorable. No Clemson, no NC State, no Virginia Tech (last game of the year), and obviously no Miami up until this point. And in a small step up in class last week, UVA lost at Louisville 38-21 (the box score suggested the Cardinals should have won by more).

But I feel the main issue here is the spot for the Hurricanes. Last week's game against Notre Dame was one of the biggest of the entire college football season and Miami came up aces. Now at 9-0, Miami has two very winnable games vs. Virginia and at Pitt before playing in the already determined ACC Championship vs. Clemson. And we should also mention the ridiculous turnover margin Miami has posted this year (+15, 24 gained) and of late (+10, 16 gained last four games). No matter how much emphasis is placed on picks and strips, those numbers simply aren't sustainable. If Virginia can find a way to hold on to the football, this is a number they should cover.

College Basketball Gambling Update: Syracuse defense delivers again

11.15.2017     10:28 AM     Printer Friendly

UPDATE

So far, so really good for the Syracuse defense after holding high flying Iona to 62 points (0.93 ppp) in last night's win. The Orange dominated the glass 42-29 and blocked eight shots. The game went way under the total of 150 so it'll be interesting to see how much oddsmakers adjust with Syracuse's next three opponents -- Texas Southern, Oakland, and Toledo -- similar to Iona in terms of pace and scoring prowess. 




College Basketball Handicapping: Syracuse defense should improve

11.14.2017     11:51 AM     View Original Blog
From 2010 to 2016, Syracuse ranked between sixth and 20th nationally in defensive efficiency. Last season, the Orange took a big step back, finishing 119th and 9th in ACC play. It looks like this year's group could return to those elite-level numbers thanks to a ridiculous wealth of size and length which are obvious keys when playing a 2-3 zone. Last week, Syracuse blocked six shots and outrebounded Cornell 54-36 in an easy 77-45 win. The Orange rolled out 6-8, 6-8 6-9, 6-10, and 7-2 in that contest. Things get a little tougher tonight with Iona headed to the Carrier Dome, though the Gaels’ tallest player checks in at 6-8. Syracuse is currently -10 chalk.

College Football Betting Preview: UAB Blazers at Florida Gators

11.15.2017     10:16 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UAB at Florida
Saturday, 1 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener: Florida -10.5 O/U 48
CRIS Current: Florida -10.5 O/U 48
Recommendation: Over

Not much of anything to play for other than pride in this matchup as UAB heads to Florida for a late season non-conference affair. The Blazers have been on of the biggest overachievers in the country this season with a 7-3 record (8-2 ATS). But there isn't much on the line their last two games with bowl eligibility wrapped up and North Texas having already clinched the West Division. The Gators, who fired head coach Jim McElwain two weeks ago, have lost five straight and will obviously not be participating in the postseason. Their focus is likely on not getting embarrassed at home against a mid-major.

Interesting angle to consider here is the schedule for both squads. UAB has not played a single Power 5 team this season. In fact, they haven't faced a team inside Sagarin's top 100; North Texas (100th) their "toughest" opponent. Florida meanwhile has not played a single non-Power 5 squad. Vanderbilt (97th) was their weakest foe to-date; UAB checks in at 112th.

The biggest issue for Florida has been a lack of offensive production with only 334 ypg vs. the SEC. Three different quarterbacks have seen action with freshman Feleipe Franks expected to start as Malik Zaire is questionable due to a knee injury. If you eliminate a stinker vs. Georgia's top-tier stop unit and getting thrown into last week's game at South Carolina after Zaire went down, Franks has been serviceable. I think they'll be able to move the ball against a UAB defense that has benefited from a soft schedule and a down year for offenses in C-USA. The Blazers didn't play Florida Atlantic and against North Texas allowed 548 yards at 7.5 ypp. And while Florida's offense has been abysmal, the defense has quietly eroded of late. Over the last three weeks against Georgia, Missouri, and South Carolina, the Gators allowed a combined 7.1 ypp.

In the end, I expect this one to play "loose" as neither team has much of anything to lose. Remember, Florida was 3-0 and averaged 30.6 ppg to open SEC play. And while the comp was weak, UAB has been consistent enough offensively (23 points its lowest output) that it should be able to net enough points to help get this game over the relatively low total of 48.

College Football Betting: Missouri's power rating continues to skyrocket

11.14.2017     12:06 PM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There hasn't been a bigger midseason turnaround in college football than the Missouri Tigers. After opening the season 1-5 SU and 0-4 ATS, Mizzou has ripped off four straight wins and six straight covers. Their early season struggles were simple: the offense couldn't score and the defense was atrocious. But of late, it's been the complete opposite. Missouri has won its last four games by an average margin of 53.8-16.5. The most surprising improvement has been defensively. Yes, the competition wasn't exactly potent (Idaho, UConn, Florida, and Tennessee) but this is a unit that opened the year coughing up 43 to Missouri State. But the real story here is how much oddsmakers have been forced to adjust Missouri's power rating after beating the spread by 21, 27.5, 26.5, and 32.5 the last four weeks. Consider some of Missouri's previous pointspreads and compare them to the -8.5 it is laying on Saturday at Vanderbilt: -1.5 at home vs. Florida, -13.5 at UConn, and +8.5 at Kentucky. Nuts, right?


“At the beginning of the year we might not have had the perfect personnel for our team,” strong safety Kaleb Prewett said. “The coaches made some changes. Now I feel like everyone’s in a good spot to win ballgames.”

“When you have young guys and new coaches you have to figure things out,” Sherrils said. “It might take some time. … Really, we didn’t need to change much. We needed to find each other and believe. Our chemistry now is at an all-time high.”

College Football Handicapping: SEC has fared well ATS in late season non-conference games

11.14.2017     11:32 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The SEC is unique in that you see a lot of late season non-conference matchups. They mostly involve an SEC team playing host and laying big points to non-power five teams. Below are the results, which this season have been very positive for the SEC: 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS. Note that there are four such matchups this weekend.

Missouri: The Tigers faced Idaho and UConn back-to-back weeks and easily won and covered both games.

Vanderbilt: Won and covered two weeks ago vs. Western Kentucky.

Ole Miss: Won and covered as -23 home favorites vs. UL-Lafayette last week.

Arkansas: Needed a miracle to slip past Coastal Carolina as -24.5 home favorites two weeks ago.

Mississippi State - Won but failed to cover vs. UMass two weeks ago.

Texas A&M: Won and covered vs. New Mexico last week.

Tennessee: Won and covered vs. Southern Miss two weeks ago.

Auburn: -36 vs. UL-Monroe on Saturday

Florida: -10 vs. UAB on Saturday

South Carolina: N/L vs. Wofford on Saturday

NFL Handicapper Betting Preview: Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons

11.11.2017     08:53 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.

Dallas at Atlanta
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - FOX
CRIS Opener: Atlanta -3 O/U 50.5
CRIS Current: Atlanta -3 O/U 48.5
Recommendation: Dallas

I understand that Zeke Elliott is an impact running back.  I also understand that the Cowboys offensive line is mostly healthy now, and they’ve dominated for the better part of the last month.  Dak Prescott is on fire, leading the team to 28+ points in each of their last six ballgames and making good decisions with the football week after week – he’s thrown only 2 INT’s during that entire six week span.  And the trio of Alfred Morris, Rod Smith and Darren McFadden are more than capable of filling the void left by Elliott’s suspension.

The mainstream narrative is so predictable it’s not even funny.  I’ve seen so many ridiculous quotes suggesting Dak Prescott will need to throw 50 times (he’s thrown more than 40 passes only twice in his 24 career starts) or Dallas has no identity without Zeke (running backs are replaceable, and every player on every team knows it).  It’s all nonsense – remember, sports reporters are paid to produce content, not to be right.  My power rating adjustment for Dallas following the Elliott suspension news was all of a half point, and the Cowboys have been prepping and planning for this since the summer. 

The wiseguys continue to support the Falcons on a weekly basis, despite their obvious and continued struggles on both sides of the football and their propensity for blowing leads.  Why the sharp love for Atlanta?  Simple – their statistical profile looks great.  The Falcons Super Bowl team from last year outgained foes by an average of 1.1 yards per snap (their yards-per-play differential between what they gain on offense vs. what they allow on defense), ranked #1 in the NFL.  This year’s Falcons squad has outgained their opponents by 1.1 yards per snap, ranked #1 in the NFL, just like last year.

Sharps focus heavily on those yards per play stats – too heavily, in this bettor’s opinion!  After all, the elite Patriots have been outgained by more than half a yard on a ypp basis this year, while a very suspect losing team like Cinci has a positive differential.  The stats might show that this year’s Falcons version is every bit as good as last year’s squad, but the eye test does not. 

A Falcons team that scored 58 offensive touchdowns last year is only at 17 TDs at the halfway point this year, with Steve Sarkisian unable to fill departed coordinator Kyle Shanahan’s big shoes.   Atlanta has been favored four times in the last five weeks.  They’ve lost three of those four games in SU fashion, with the offense unable to click during crunch time and the defense allowing 20+ in each of their last six contests. 

The wiseguys are likely to keep betting on the Falcons until their statistical profile changes in a significant way.  That gives savvy bettors a legitimate overlay to fade this vastly overrated commodity.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Orlando Magic at Phoenix Suns

11.10.2017     12:09 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Orlando -3.5 at Phoenix O/U 226
Recommendation: Orlando

Here’s the key quote, from Suns veteran big man Jared Dudley, after Phoenix lost their fourth straight game earlier in the week: "We are going to have a problem with consistency throughout the year... Since Jay took over, we might have had one or one-and-a-half practices. We've had a lot of games, and there is only so much you can go over, so much film you can do. I think he's a done great job so far. I just think that we need to ride this stretch before next week beginning a couple practices and going over certain things that we need to go through on the defensive end."

The Suns have gotten a little bit better since Jay Triano took over for Earl Watson following their dismal start, at least from an effort standpoint. But from a defensive standpoint, the Suns remain a bottom five team. It’s the same story on offense, no surprise for a team that suspended, then traded their starting point guard, leaving D-League veteran (but undrafted NBA rookie) Mike James as the starter at the point. This is not a strong homecourt either, as clearly evidenced by the Suns home losses to the Nets, Heat and Lakers already.

There’s a lot to like about the 2017-18 Orlando Magic. With Aaron Gordon, Nikola Vucevic and Evan Fournier, Frank Vogel’s squad has a legitimate Big 3; all of whom can score, pass and rebound at a high level. The supporting cast is stepping up, most notably wing Jonathan Simmons. And with starting point guard Elfrid Payton healthy again, coming off an 11 point, 11 assist effort in his first game back following an eight game absence, matchup edges for this home underdog are few and far between. We’ve already seen the Magic win SU and ATS on the highway at Memphis, New Orleans and Cleveland, primed to do it again at Talking Stick Arena tonight as they step down in class.

College Football Betting Preview: SMU Mustangs at Navy Midshipmen

11.10.2017     09:22 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
SMU at Navy
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener: Navy -4.5 O/U 67
CRIS Current: Navy -3.5 O/U 68
Recommendation: SMU

After starting the season 5-0, Navy's schedule started to tighten and they find itself on a rare three-game losing streak. The SOS difficulty continues on Saturday with a very capable SMU coming to town. The Mustangs rank among the nation's leaders in pass plays beyond 20 yards (49). That spells problems for a Navy secondary that has routinely been exposed against potent passing attacks. The Midshipmen surrendered 34, 31, 30 and 45 points in their last four games; showing an inability to get stops or get off the field on third down.

On the flip side, Navy’s triple option attack has not been as reliable as it’s been in past seasons. Offensively, the Middies are down about a half yard per play compared to 2016. And of over their last three games, they’ve averaged a very pedestrian 5.0 ypp. SMU’s defense is far from elite, but if you eliminate games vs. upper-tier TCU and UCF, the Mustangs are allowing a respectable 5.8 ypp.

The big storyline in this matchup is the recent history. Navy has embarrassed SMU in back-to-back meetings, 55-14 and 75-31. But the gap between these two teams has closed considerably with SMU one of the most improved teams in the country. Navy will get its yards but I think the Mustangs are poised for a far more competitive showing with a good shot at the outright victory.

Notre Dame at Miami
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener: Notre Dame -2.5 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: Notre Dame -3 O/U 57.5
Recommendation: Over

High stakes contest at Miami this week which has been thoroughly dissected by national media but may boil down to the simplest of factors. Hurricane detractors continue to point toward the lack of scoreboard dominance exhibited by Miami but last week’s dominant 28-10 win over Virginia Tech has opened some eyes. For the ‘Canes, the formula has not quite been classic Mark Richt style and they may be a bit ahead of schedule but they do have a head of steam built up heading into this game. The team confidence and fan base enthusiasm which have not really been clearly seen since his arrival, are now in full force at precisely the right time. Those elements combined with steady week to week play have Miami priced at a very competitive +3 home underdog versus this Notre Dame team which has been dominant this season with all eight of their victories coming by 11 or more points.

Injuries to Notre Dame studs, QB Brandon Wimbush (hand) and RB Josh Adams (head) were a slight source of concern earlier this week but now it seems as if all systems are go for the Fighting Irish offense. Last week once again, they destroyed a solid defense when they lit Wake Forest up for 710 total yards. They led by 25 points with under 10 minutes to go in the contest and let off the accelerator which led to a back door cover by Wake. However, the Demon Deacons did put up a whopping 587 total yards in the contest which was a season high against Notre Dame and in the process may have opened the door to a potential weakness. In the only two games this season where ND was lit up defensively, proficient dual threat QB’s led the way. Brian Lewerke of Michigan State and John Woolford of Wake Forest both have the running capabilities and passing accuracy that each demanded Notre Dame’s attention. The results were seen mainly through the air as Lewerke passed for 340 yards and Woolford threw for 331. Question is, can Malik Rozier pick apart Notre Dame the same way? Statistically he’s not quite as accurate as Woolford and Lewerke but he’s in the neighborhood. Must also note that Rozier’s primary game-breaking WR threat Ahmmon Richards missed a significant chunk of time early this season due to injury but settled in during the month of October.

Have to believe Miami is ready for this moment. They are the prototypical college football example of progressing week by week and they are now hitting their stride at the perfect time. That being said, Notre Dame has been ultra-impressive this season and they show zero signs of slowing down. From a betting angle there seems to be some room to play the over. Notre Dame’s offensive line is leaps and bounds better than any the Hurricanes have faced this season and the diversity of their offense seems ticketed for 31+ points. On the other hand, Miami has the weaponry and balance to give the Notre Dame defense problems all night the same way Michigan State and Wake Forest did. With the key numbers of 58, 59 and 61 all working here, over figures to be a ticket casher.
