College Football Gambling: Florida claims it will play faster vs. Texas A&M

10.11.2017     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
"Yo, man. I didn't sign up for this shit" was undoubtedly said by no fewer than 80 percent of Florida's offensive unit following last week's 17-16 loss to LSU. The Gators picked up a respectable 5.59 yards per play but managed only 54 snaps. A "lack of communication" has been the most common excuse but snapping the ball every 29 seconds in college football is without question premeditated. While not a full-on revolt, various players voiced their opinions on how the offense needs to pick up the pace. The Gators are -3 home chalk with a total of 52.5 vs. Texas A&M.


 “I think we need to speed up the tempo on offense,” offensive lineman Tyler Jordan said Monday. “Some series you’ll see it, we get up to the ball and we’re rolling, we move the ball efficiently. And there’s other series where we’re slow getting to the ball, and then the series doesn’t turn out as well as we wanted it to.”

“Getting the play into the game, getting (it) from the sideline to Feleipe so Feleipe can get it

College Football Betting News: LSU nears full-on dumpster fire status

10.03.2017     11:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You can't make this stuff up. Already feeling the heat after a loss to Mississippi State and a lackluster showing vs. Syracuse, LSU head coach Ed Orgeron felt the need to stick his nose where it clearly didn’t belong and admitted to "offering suggestions" on how LSU should run its offense in the second half of last week's loss to Troy. This of course after Orgeron brought in highly respected offensive coordinator Matt Canada and told Canada the offense is all yours heading into the season. The offense, while far from smooth, hasn't been that bad (6.4 yards per play). And despite being under constant pressure, quarterback Danny Etling has been serviceable (150.8 QB Rating, 35th nationally). Yet, they (we assume Orgeron), insist on inserting QB of the future Myles Brennan at seemingly inopportune times. Add it all up and voila, a home loss to a Sun Belt team. Orgeron now claims he won't intervene with Canada who we'd love to hear from but won't because LSU coordinators haven't spoken to the media since the preseason. Next up for the Tigers, a Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Kentucky Wildcats

Florida at Kentucky
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - SEC Network
CRIS Opener: Florida -2.5 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Florida -1.5 O/U 43.5
Recommendation: Kentucky

Heading into the season, Kentucky talked all about playing at a fast tempo and putting up big points on a weekly basis. Three games into the season and the Wildcats have failed miserably at that claim and are ironically a better team for it. Fifth-year head coach Mark Stoops finally got the message that in order to compete in the SEC, you have to value the football, run the football, and play solid defense. Through three games, UK is +4 in turnover margin, owns a 121-70 run/pass ratio, and is allowing only 346.7 ypg. The competition comes up a little light (Southern Miss, Eastern Kentucky and South Carolina), particularly on the offensive end, but Saturday's opponent is another foe where Kentucky's newly-adopted strategy could thrive.

For seven of the eight quarters it has played, Florida's offense has been nothing short of abysmal. The Gators managed 11 rushing yards vs. Michigan and if you eliminate their Hail Read more

College Football Betting News: Florida says all three quarterbacks could see time vs. Michigan

08.24.2017     09:29 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When a team says it plans on playing two quarterbacks, it generally means neither signal caller is good enough to earn the full-time job. When a team says it plans on playing three quarterbacks, it without question means no one is currently good enough to earn the full-time job. Of course, Florida could be (is probably) playing it somewhat coy as it preps for its Week 1 matchup vs. Michigan. Luke Del Rio, who was lackluster at best last year (118.6 QB Rating), even when healthy, is in the mix. So is Notre Dame transfer Malik Zaire. Then there is Feleipe Franks who is poised to be the starter of the future. The Gators haven't ranked in the top six of the SEC in team QB rating since 2009 when a guy named Tebow was taking snaps.


"Ultimately the guy that the team moves with the best," he said. "The guys that create positive plays on third down and get the ball in the end zone. That's kind of where we're at."

College Football Betting News: Florida suspends seven for season opener vs. Michigan

08.14.2017     07:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
One of the disadvantages of playing an actual game in Week 1 and not some patsy from the Sun Belt is that there's always a chance for some good old fashion offseason suspensions. Florida announced that it will be without the services of seven players including the team's top offensive weapon, wide receiver, Antonio Callaway. Frustrating situation for summer bettors as there was a lot of pro-Gator money. Michigan opened -5 and was bet down to -2.5 before sportsbooks took the game off the board.


"We have a small group of players that have made some choices that are extremely disappointing," head coach Jim McElwain said in a statement, though he did not elaborate on the reason for their suspension. "Action has been taken they have missed some practice and will miss the Michigan game. We will use this as a learning opportunity and we will have some players step up as we move forward."

College Basketball Gambling: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part I

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams. Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Three years ago, Kevin Ollie’s Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

Here is a list of the last 19 NCAA champions and the teams they beat in the title game: Kentucky over Utah in ’98, UConn over Duke in ’99, Michigan St over Florida in 2000, Duke over Arizona in ’01, Maryland over Indiana in ’02, Syracuse over Kansas in Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Alabama Crimson Tide at Tennessee Volunteers

Alabama at Tennessee
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - CBS
CRIS Opener:
Alabama -10.5 O/U 60
CRIS Current: Alabama -13 O/U 57
Recommendation: Over

The Tennessee defense is in a world of hurt right now, terrible news as they take on the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.  The Vols stop unit has, quite simply, been gutted with key injuries.  They’ve lost Cameron Sutton, Jalen Reeves-Maybin and Cortez McDowell from their secondary; Quar’te Sapp and Darrin Kirkland from their linebacking corps and Danny O’Brien from the defensive line.  Sutton, Sapp and O’Brien have all been lost to season ending injuries, losing top playmakers from all three defensive units.

Of that group, only McDowell has a chance to play this week, and even that’s very ‘iffy’.  No surprise, then, that the Vols surrendered ten plays of 20 yards or more in their double overtime loss at Texas A&M last Saturday.  And, after that wild A&M on the heels of the wild Georgia game and the wild Florida game; a Vols defense that hasn’t had a bye yet certainly could use Read more

College Football Handicapping: Missouri players meet with defensive coordinator

10.11.2016     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A year removed from allowing only 302 ypg (2nd SEC), Missouri's defense has taken a significant step back. Two weeks ago, LSU rolled up 634 yards (7.7 ypp) in a 42-7 win Baton Rouge. During the bye week, the players met with defensive coordinator DeMontie Cross to voice their concerns about Cross's complex system. The Tigers travel to Gainesville this Saturday to face Florida. The Gators are currently -13.5/-14 favorites while the total was hammered up to 50.5.


“Sometimes everyone’s just frustrated but nobody’s talking about how to make it better,” MU middle linebacker Michael Scherer said. “And nothing ever gets better.”

“He wanted to know how we felt,” Scherer said. “He wanted to know how he could contribute to help us play better. He’s not (saying), ‘My way or the highway.’ He’s listening to us. He’s taking opinions from us.”

Safety Thomas Wilson added: “He just

College Football Betting Preview: Florida Gators at Vanderbilt Commodores

Florida at Vanderbilt
Saturday, 9 am PT - SEC
CRIS Opener:
Florida -9.5 O/U 41.5
CRIS Current: Florida -10/5 O/U 40.5
Recommendation: Florida

Florida returns to the Volunteer State for the second week in a row, hoping for better results than last week’s 38-28 loss to Tennessee.  The Gators got off to a big 21-0 lead in the second quarter but after halftime, the wheels fell as Tennessee scored 35 straight points. The second half turnaround was amazing as Florida had outgained Tennessee 300-162 in the first half and averaged 8.8 yards per play.  Florida played very conservatively in the second half on offense while Tennessee came out ferociously and it showed, with the Gators having five straight three-and-outs.

I am going to overlook the second half of that game and focus on what Florida did in the first half and in their other games this season. They had allowed 14 points in the first three games prior to Tennessee and are made up of some solid NFL prospects. Vanderbilt does not pose anywhere near the threat that Tennessee did with quarterback Joshua Dobbs and his Read more
