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

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

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 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 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

College Football Betting: Bettors look to fade Florida after McElwain firing

10.30.2017     09:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Tough schedule, a couple of coin flip losses...it doesn't mean much when you get worked over by a rival 42-7. It also doesn't help when you pull out a potentially fake woe-is-me card. Florida decided to part ways with head coach Jim McElwain after the Gators dropped their third straight game. Defensive coordinator Randy Shannon will take over for the remainder of the season. The Gators are currently +3.5 road underdogs (opened +1.5) to Missouri for Saturday.

We don't often play the Guess Who's Gonna Get Fired game but there are going to be a lot of head coaching gigs available in the SEC this offseason.

Florida - McElwain fired
Tennessee - Jones a lock to be fired
Arkansas - Bielema a near lock to be fired
Texas A&M - Sumlin a near lock to be fired
Ole Miss - Luke likely passed over for bigger name
LSU - Orgeron could be fired depending on how season plays out
Missouri - Odom could save job with longshot bowl berth

College Football Betting Preview: USC Trojans at Arizona State Sun Devils

USC at Arizona State
Saturday, 7:45 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener: USC -3 O/U 58
CRIS Current: USC -3.5 O/U 59
Recommendation: USC

Arizona State is one of the most interesting teams in college football. One one hand you have a team with three outright wins at double-digit underdogs. On the other hand, a statistical profile that is downright ugly. Despite their 4-3 overall, 3-1 PAC-12 records, the Sun Devils have been outgained by nearly a full yard per play (6.19 ypp allowed, 5.22 ypp gained) this season. And you can also make a case that a majority of ASU's opponents were later discovered to be overrated. San Diego State has recently been exposed as has Texas Tech. Since losing in Tempe, Oregon has dropped three of four; albeit with a backup quarterback. Washington was clearly living off last year's accomplishments and an ultra-soft schedule and Utah has been dealing with a lack of stability at the quarterback position. To call ASU a complete "fraud" is probably too harsh, but I have a hard time buying into this squad despite a handful of at-the-time impressive Read more

College Football Betting Preview: Old Dominion Monarchs at North Texas Mean Green

Old Dominion at North Texas
Saturday, 3:30 pm PT - ESPN3
CRIS Opener: North Texas -10 O/U 66
CRIS Current: North Texas -11 O/U 61.5
Recommendation: North Texas

There is a massive class difference between these two offenses as North Texas currently leads C-USA in total offense (487.9 ypg) and yards per play (6.68). Quarterback Mason Fine has already topped the 2,000-yard mark, receivers Jalen Guyton and Michael Lawrence have 30+ catches, and running back Jeffrey Wilson is well on his way to 1,000-yard season. This is an offense that posted 6.63 yards per play against Iowa; a mark that no team not even Penn State topped against the Hawkeyes.

Old Dominion has topped 5.50 yards per play only once this season; an offense that features little to no passing game (92.8 team QB Rating) and a hit-or-miss run game (200+ yards twice, sub-100 yards three times). The Monarchs are attempting to survive Read more
