College Football Gambling: Bettors should be aware of coaching changes for bowl teams

12.07.2017     11:54 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There's obviously been a lot of coaching movement since the end of the regular season. Below we've got the details on who is expected to coach those teams playing in the postseason.

UCF - Scott Frost is headed to Nebraska but reports say he and his staff will stick around for the Peach Bowl (Jan. 1).

Missouri - Offensive coordinator Josh Heupel was hired to replace Frost. He won't have anything to do with UCF's bowl preparation and there is still no word on whether or not he'll call plays for Missouri's Texas Bowl (Dec. 27) matchup vs. Texas.

Oregon - Offensive coordinator Mario Cristobal will serve as interim head coach following the departure of Willie Taggart. The Ducks play Boise State in the Las Vegas Bowl (Dec. 16).

UCLA - With Jim Mora Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Virginia Cavaliers at West Virginia Mountaineers

Virginia at West Virginia -4 O/U 134.5
Recommendation: Under

The personnel may be slightly different but stylistically, this year's West Virginia and Virginia squads are the same as they've always been under their respective head coaches. Under Bob Huggins, the Mountaineers are once again turning games into chaos by pressing and attempting to force turnovers. Virginia meanwhile continues to grind and not get baited into any sort of up-and-down affair. Two years ago, with a closing total of 135, both teams met at Madison Square Garden with the Cavaliers winning 70-54. The Mountaineers managed 36 points in the first half but were held to only 18 after the break. The game was actually more to WVU's liking with 65 possessions, 41 combined free throws, and 37 combined turnovers. Despite that, it still went well under the total. Last year, West Virginia returned the favor with a 66-57 win in Charlottesville. That game features only 61 possessions and went under the closing total of 128.5. Tonight's matchup opened 131.5 and was bet up to 134.5. At some point, it will get bet under. Bob Huggins had this to say about facing UVA, "A lot gets Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

New England at Buffalo
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: New England -9 O/U 49
CRIS Current: New England -9 O/U 48
Recommendation: New England

For the second consecutive season, the New England Patriots are, incredibly, an UNDER-valued commodity in the betting markets. Last year, despite their ‘public’ nature and their Super Bowl winning caliber roster, the wiseguys faded New England (and lost fading New England) week after week. The Pats finished the season with a truly remarkable 15-3-1 ATS record, including an 8-1 ATS mark on the highway.

It’s been more of the same here in 2017. The Patriots statistical profile hasn’t been pretty from Day 1, when New England got slapped around on their home field against Kansas City. Their full, season long numbers show a mediocre ballclub that allows 6.1 yards per play on defense (tied with Tampa for dead last in the NFL), unable to stop the run (4.9 yards per carry allowed, also tied for last in the NFL) and mediocre against the pass.

Those numbers are flat out lying, and that’s Read more

Big XII Championship Betting Preview: TCU Horned Frogs vs. Oklahoma Sooners

Big XII Championship
TCU vs. Oklahoma - Arlington, Texas
Saturday, 9:30 am PT - FOX
CRIS Opener: Oklahoma -7 O/U 61.5
CRIS Current: Oklahoma -7 O/U 63.5
Recommendation: TCU

The inaugural Big XII Championship pits together two teams that are playing their best football of the year in recent weeks. Since losing at home to Iowa State as -31 chalk, Oklahoma has ripped off seven straight and covered four of its five. TCU’s only two blemishes came against Iowa State and Saturday’s opponent, Oklahoma. Three weeks ago, as -6 home chalk, the Sooners beat the Horned Frogs, 38-20.

In terms of the ability to adjust not only game-to-game, but half-to-half, few are as good as TCU’s Gary Patterson. After falling behind to Oklahoma 38-14 at half, the Horned Frogs pitched a shutout in the second half. Amazingly, TCU has allowed a grand total of six points in the second half of its last seven games. And prior to that loss, the series had been ultra competitive with margins of 7, 6, 4, 3, and 1. Statistically, it's impressive what Oklahoma Read more

NFL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs

11.26.2017     08:44 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Buffalo at Kansas City
Sunday, 10 am PT - CBS
CRIS Opener: Kansas City -10 O/U 47
CRIS Current: Kansas City -9.5 O/U 47
Recommendation: Buffalo

Let’s start with this: I don’t trust this Chiefs defense one iota, certainly not enough to lay double digits with Kansas City this week. KC has gone 1-4 SU since their 5-0 start because they haven’t been able to stop anybody. A struggling Raiders offense that hadn’t worked in more than a month picked apart the KC pass defense to the tune of 417 yards and 31 points. The following week, Oakland was shut down again. Then a Broncos team with no passing game whatsoever and an injury riddled, struggling offensive line run the ball all night against the Chiefs; to the tune of 5.7 yards per carry, 177 yards on the ground. The following week, Denver’s offense couldn’t move the football.

The Chiefs faced Dallas right before their bye. It was more of the same: four TD’s in four red zone tries behind a balanced attack. Their performance last week after the bye was better, but it came Read more

College Football Betting Preview: UAB Blazers at Florida Gators

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 Read more

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, Read more

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

Alabama: N/L vs. Mercer on Saturday
