NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Rhode Island Rams vs. Oregon Ducks

03.19.2017     08:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rhode Island +5 vs. Oregon O/U 141
Recommendation: Rhode Island


When we talk about impact injuries on the defensive end of the court, the Ducks loss of shot blocking center Chris Boucher really stands out. Boucher was not a great offensive player, but he was a low post difference maker on defense. In their first game without him in the lineup, the Ducks struggled to get stops, allowing 83 points on 58% shooting in the PAC-12 title game against Arizona. In their second game without Boucher, they allowed 77 points on 44% shooting to Iona.

The pointspread outcome in that game came down to the final possession despite the fact that the Ducks shot 56% from the floor and won the rebounding battle by 14. That’s certainly not a good sign moving forward, and Oregon is not a ‘value laden’ team at this stage of the campaign.

Rhode Island is on the other end of the ‘value’ equation. The Rams did not play their best basketball, struggling SU and ATS early and often in November, December and into January. Key contributors like senior low post stud Hassan Martin, junior point guard Jarvis Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Washington Huskies at California Golden Bears

Washington at California
Saturday, 7:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Washington -15.5 O/U 77.5
CRIS Current: Washington -17 O/U 76.5
Recommendation: California

There was a time, earlier in my handicapping career when I was fixated on taking strong defensive underdogs in college football; teams that could cover pointspreads without having to put up touchdowns in bunches. But that era of college football ended (without much fan fare from the betting markets), with the advent of the high octane spread offense, like the one Sonny Dykes is running at Cal these days. 

In the football universe circa 2016, my entire thought process involving bigger underdogs has flipped from where it was 15 years ago.  In the modern world, I want my underdogs to be able to score early and often, even if they are defensively weak.  Teams that can put up points in bunches tend to be live underdogs, capable of trading points OR coming through the backdoor should they struggle early.

Underdogs of seven points or more are 4-1 ATS in Cal games this year, with the Bears unable to cover bigger Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Ohio State Buckeyes

Nebraska at Ohio State
Saturday, 5 pm PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Ohio State -13.5 O/U 54
CRIS Current: Ohio State -17 O/U 51.5
Recommendation: Ohio State

Ohio State knows that its only chance to get into the College Football Playoffs is to beat Michigan in the regular season finale. But before the Buckeyes get there, they must face Nebraska and then back-to-back road games at Maryland and Michigan State. As bettors, we don't pay a lot of attention to the Playoff Rankings but it's hard not to notice how generous they are towards the Big Ten with five teams in the top 12. One of those teams is Nebraska (10th) who somehow checks in ahead of Florida, LSU, Oklahoma and a few others they'd assuredly be an underdog to on a neutral field. So while Ohio State has its eye on November 26, this is an opportunity to beat a "quality" foe.

Following their loss to Penn State, the Buckeyes limped past Northwestern 24-20. They never trailed but the box score was very even. It was a classic "letdown" spot as OSU never sniffed a pointspread cover as -26 favorites. Note that OSU opened that game Read more

College Football Handicapping: Golden Nugget Game of the Year vs. CRIS - Week 6

10.03.2016     09:06 AM     Printer Friendly
Week 5's breakdown of Golden Nugget's Game of the Year lines vs. CRIS's current numbers. This is the first week where we really start to see some significant discrepancies. Texas A&M (5-0 SU, 4-1 ATS) has seen its power rating steadily climb since the start of the season. Couple that with Tennessee's improbable win over Florida and bettors took the Aggies from -5 to -7. Meanwhile, there has been a 10-point swing in the Florida State-Miami game. And 9.5 with Oregon-Washington as the Ducks fell to 2-3 SU (0-4 ATS) and undefeated Huskies now in the playoff discussion.

College Football Betting Preview: Central Florida Knights at East Carolina Pirates

Central Florida at East Carolina
Saturday, 9 am PT - CBSC
CRIS Opener:
East Carolina -6 O/U 56.5
CRIS Current: East Carolina -4 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: Central Florida

UCF went 0-12 last year.  Ten of their losses came by two touchdowns or more, as they should have – George O’Leary’s final season was a complete disaster.  That included a late November 44-7 home loss at the hands of East Carolina.  That was then, this is now. 

First-year head coach Scott Frost has made it very clear what he wants to install for the Golden Knights.  The former Oregon Ducks offensive coordinator wants to become “Oregon of the East."  Frost found his starting quarterback two weeks ago when previous starter Justin Holman got hurt.  In two games behind center, frosh McKenzie Milton; a dual threat dynamo against both Maryland and FIU. 

Here’s Frost’s quote: “One of the things that drew me to the job is I knew I could run a version of our offense that was practically identical to Oregon's because we Read more

Nebraska at Northwestern
Saturday, 4:30 pm PT - BTN
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -6 O/U 48.5
CRIS Current: Nebraska -7.5 O/U 48
Recommendation: Nebraska

Big Ten gets underway on Saturday as the Northwestern Wildcats host the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Last week, our free play selection cashed as Northwestern picked up its first victory of the season with a 24-13 win over Duke. Tied 7-7 at halftime, the Wildcats finally were able to get their offense going with 17 second half points. They finished with 320 passing yards (8.2 per play) and for the first time all year topped the 400 total yardage barrier. Now they will face a Nebraska squad coming off of a massive 35-32 home win over Oregon. The Huskers used a balance attack of passing and rushing to work over a suspect Ducks’ defense. They also picked up some big plays on special teams, notably De'Mourney Pearson-El's punt return at the end of the first half that led to a TD to help rally back from an initial 20-7 deficit. Oregon didn't help its cause with 13 penalties for 126 yards.

Last year’s meeting saw Northwestern pick up a close 30-28 Read more

Oregon at Nebraska
Saturday, 12:30 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -3 O/U 70.5
CRIS Current: Nebraska -3 O/U 74.5
Recommendation: Oregon

If you look at the final scores of Nebraska’s first two games, this pointspread might make sense.  After all, the Huskers are coming off back-to-back dominating wins and covers against Fresno and Wyoming over the last two weeks, covering as a home favorite for the first times since a Week 2 win over South Alabama last year.

There’s only one problem with that assumption.  Nebraska didn’t dominate either game.  Both blowouts were completely fraudulent.  And Oregon’s team speed will be highly problematic for a Cornhuskers defense that hasn’t seen playmakers like these in year – they haven’t faced Ohio State or Michigan in Big Ten play in either of the past two seasons.

In Week 1, Nebraska entered the fourth quarter against Freson clinging to a 21-10 lead, but a pair of Bulldogs interceptions set up the Huskers down the stretch as they punched in three unanswered touchdowns in the Read more

Oregon at Nebraska
Saturday, 12:30 am PT - ABC
CRIS Opener:
Nebraska -3 O/U 70.5
CRIS Current: Nebraska -3 O/U 74
Recommendation: Oregon

From 2010 to 2014, Oregon closed as an underdog only once (53-30 win at 7th-ranked Stanford as +2.5 dogs in 2011). They were the clear class of the PAC-12 and garnered a ton of respect in the betting markets. Last season, however, was the first time since 2007 the Ducks failed to win 10 games. And what we remember last was an embarrassing bowl game loss to TCU in which Oregon blew a 31-0 halftime lead. Heading into this season, the Ducks weren't the first choice to win the PAC-12; in fact, they were priced third behind both Stanford and Washington. And through the first two weeks of the season, the downgrading looks to be correct with Oregon posting lackluster wins and pointspread failures against weaker foes Virginia and UC Davis.

Nebraska has that "well oiled machine" look after blowout wins and easy pointspread covers over Wyoming and Fresno State. The two wins have helped the Cornhuskers make a sizeable power rating jump. Last season, Nebraska Read more

Oregon at Arizona -7.5 O/U 150.5
Recommendation: Arizona


Oregon and Arizona will do battle in Tucson tonight in a key PAC-12 clash. Oregon is 5-2 in PAC-12 play and tied with Washington for top spot in the conference while Arizona is just 4-3 inside the conference so the Wildcats will be looking to draw even with the Ducks in the PAC-12 standings. Oregon enters this game off back-to-back impressive home wins against USC and UCLA but they have not been as strong away from Eugene with a 1-3 SU record. The Ducks have been known to have excellent guard play for years under Dana Altman but this year, they boast a very imposing frontcourt with the likes of Dillon Brooks, Elgin Cook, Jordan Bell and Chris Boucher. That strength inside though will be tested and even negated to a large extent by Arizona which has had plenty of quality low post players with Kaleb Tarczewski, Ryan Anderson and Mark Tollefsen averaging a collective 34.2 points and 21.8 rebounds per game. Arizona has been able to survive and fight through some personnel depletion with shooting guard Elliott Pitts having missed the last five games (3-2 SU/ATS during that span) due to a personal Read more
