2013 Holiday Bowl Preview and Pick ASU vs. Texas Tech

Holiday Bowl Preview – 2013 ASU vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

Arizona State Sun Devils vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

NCAAF Point Spread and USA Today Odds have the Arizona State Sundevils at -14 O/U 71.5

Monday December 30, 2013 10:15 PM EST ESPN

ASU was in position to play in the Rose Bowl, but they lost to Stanford for the 2nd time, this time at home, in the Pac 12 title game to miss that boat. Still, they are in a legit Holiday Bowl and are big 14-point betting favorites with a total of 71.5 facing a Texas Tech team that has big issues.

The Red Raiders were a top 10 team after winning their first 7 games, but they lost their last 5 and that is not all. The Big 12 Offensive Rookie of the Year in QB Baker Mayfield told the team he would be transferring and he will not be in uniform in this game.

The Sun Devils have a solid offense and that is not good for a Tech defense that was torched in the second half of the season. In their 5-game losing streak to end the season the Red Raiders gave up an average of 500 yards per game and their run defense was terrible.

In their last games on the season ASU lost to Stanford in the Pac 12 title game 38-14 and Texas Tech lost their 5th straight falling to Texas 41-16.

On the season ASU is at 7-6 ATS and they have an O/U record of 9-4 and Tech is at 5-7 ATS and they have an O/U record of 9-3.

Davis Webb is the probably starter under center and when he was in the lineup he played well and had over 2,300 passing yards and 16 TD on the season. Tech has a solid and very deep corps of receivers and they have a star TE in Jace Amaro (98 rec 1,240 yards 7 TD). The Sun Devils ranked a respectable 50th in the nation in pass defense on the season.

Kenny Williams is the leading RB for the Red Raiders, but they are totally a pass-first offense, as he only had 480 rushing yards all season. Overall Texas Tech ranked only 100th in the nation in rushing yards per game and will face a Sun Devils’ run D that ranks 32nd.

ASU had a balanced offense in the regular season, but will they have that in this bowl game? RB Marion Grice missed the last 2 games with an injury and while he stated he will play he is still a question mark. However, ASU still has QB Taylor Kelly (3,510 yards 28 TD 11 INT) and WR Jaelen Strong (1,094 yards 7 TD).

The Texas Tech defense took their knocks, big time, in the last few games of the season and overall they rank 56th in the nation defending the pass and 92nd defending the run.

In some betting trends for this Holiday Bowl Arizona State is 1-4 in their last 5 bowl games and in their last 15 games overall they have an Over record of 11-4.

Texas Tech is 5-2 in their last 7 non-conference games, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games facing a team with a winning record, and in their last 35 games overall they have an Over record of 25-10.

Las Vegas Bowl Preview Spread – Fresno State Bulldogs vs. USC Trojans Odds

Fresno State Bulldogs vs. USC Trojans Preview

Las Vegas Bowl Preview

NCAAF Point Spread: USC -6.5 O/U 62

Saturday December 21, 2013 3:30 PM EST ABC

While the Las Vegas Bowl is not one of the premier bowl games this season’s edition has one between a couple of teams in the Top 25 in the 25th ranked USC Trojans taking on the 20th ranked Fresno State Bulldogs.

The Trojans were solid in the mid season with a 5-game winning streak, which ended in their season finale, and they beat a ranked Stanford team, which was their biggest win of the season. They are a 6.5-point betting favorite in this game with a total of 62.

Fresno State looked like they would snag a BCS bowl berth, but their loss to San Jose State in their 2nd to last game dashed those hopes. Still, the Bulldogs only lost one game all season and their offense ranks 3rd overall and their passing offense ranks 5th. USC will be the only top 25 team that Fresno State will face this season. The Bulldogs look to snap their streak of 4 straight bowl game losses.

In their last games the USC lost to crosstown rival UCLA 35-14 and Fresno State beat Utah State 24-17 to win the Mountain West Conference.

On the season Fresno State is 5-7 ATS and they have an O/U record of 6-6 and USC is at 6-7 ATS and they have an O/U record of 4-9.

Senior QB Derek Carr, who will be a high pick in the next NFL draft, leads FSU. In 8 games this season he passed for over 400 yards and has a couple of legit targets in Josh Harper (79 rec 1,011 yards 13 TD) and Isaiah Burse (94 rec 987 yards 5 TD. USC has a good pass defense ranking 32nd in the nation and they will face Carr, who led the nation with 73 pass plays of at least 20 yards.

USC and their 19th ranked run D was torched in the loss to UCLA and they have to contain the Bulldogs’ RB duo of Josh Quezada and Martzee Walker, who combined for 1,416 yards on the season.

USC QB Cody Kesler was up and down this season, but he finally has a healthy Marqise Lee, who is one of the best WR in the nation. The Bulldogs only rank 116th in the nation in pass defense, but their pass rush ranks 1st. Obviously, the play of the USC offensive line is key in this game.

With some injuries to some of the USC RB’s Javorius Allen has gotten the start in the last 2 games and has stepped up with over 100 rushing yards in each. He will be up against a FSU run defense that ranks 40th in the nation.

In some betting trends for this Las Vegas Bowl Fresno State is 0-4 in their bowl games and in their last 7 games overall they have an Over record of 5-2.

USC is 20-9 ATS in their last 29 games after a loss, 1-7 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games, and in their last 15 games overall they have an Under record of 11-4.

Kings Blackhawks Betting Picks and Odds

Kings/Blackhawks UNDER 5.5 -125
Sunday evening’s game will be a clash of two Western Titans. Both teams have built incredible foundations over the last couple of years, and are operating on game styles that have been cultivated and nurtured through quite a period of time.
Los Angeles will be looking to seek revenge after getting knocked out by the Blackhawks in last year’s conference finals. Kings Centerman Jarret Stoll spoke out today to say that their recent lack of success against Chicago will be ended in this evening’s affair.
In order for that to happen, the Kings will have to do what they do best…and arguably, what they have been doing better than ever recently, and plain and simple, that is to play Darryl Sutter’s nearly perfected defensive system that has only allowed five goals in the last five games combined.
Clearly, the Blackhawks are no slouch on offense, but Head Coach Joel Quenville admitted that the team has scored some very fortunate goals in their recent explosive stretch, and that they really let their guard down versus Toronto last night. Also, Chicago is well aware that Los Angeles, despite being a defensive team, has a very opportunistic offense that can run up the score if you let them, therefore, expect the Blackhawks to operate with very careful puck management tonight.
The back to back factor for both teams should force both teams to come in with a cautious mindset, especially being aware of each others’ potential. It should be an overall defense focused game that is decided late.

Patriots Dolphins Pick against the spread

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins Preview

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins Preview

NFL Point Spread: Patriots -2 O/U 45.5

Sunday December 15, 2013 1 PM EST CBS

By: Barrett Kazmerzack of Coopers Pick CALL NOW 1-888-730-2667

The Pats lost Rob Gronkowski for the season with a knee injury in their last

game and while he is out New England can win the AFC East with a win over the

Dolphins. Without Gronk in the lineup this season the Patriots still went 5-1.

The Pats have beaten the Dolphins 7 straight times and if they make it 8 this

Sunday they will win the division for the 5th

betting favorites in this game with a total of 45.5. The Patriots have covered the

spread in 5 of their last 7 games against he Dolphins.

The Dolphins are tied with the Baltimore Ravens for the final AFC playoff spot

and they have won 2 straight games. In their loss earlier this season to the

Patriots the Dolphins played solid pass D and did not allow Tom Brady to have

a big game, but their run defense struggled and the team could not hold a 17-3

halftime lead.

In their last games the Patriots beat the Cleveland Browns 27-26 in dramatic

fashion scoring 2 TD in the last 61 seconds and the Dolphins beat the Pittsburgh

Steelers 34-28.

Brady still has some solid targets and in the win over the Browns last week

he had 418 passing yards with a couple of TD and 1 pick. The Dolphins need

to get to Brady, as the New England QB was sacked 4 times in the Cleveland

win. Miami has a mediocre pass defense, but they were less than that facing

Pittsburgh giving up nearly 330 yards in the air.

The Pats utilized RB Shane Vareen passing catches out of the backfield in the

Browns game and he came up big with 153 receiving yards. He will be featured

in this game, especially since in the earlier match up the Miami run defense,

which only ranks 23rd

In the Steelers game Miami QB Ryan Tannehill played well with 200 passing

yards and 56 rushing yards. Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace are the main Miami

WR duo and will try to take advance of a Patriots’ pass defense that ranks 16th

the league and surrendered 386 passing yards in the Browns’ game.

New England also has to keep tabs on TE Charles Clay, who is turning into a

solid target and is 114 yards shy of breaking the Miami record for receiving yards

by a TE.

straight time. They are 2-point road

in the league, gave up 153 rushing yards.

The New England run defense has really struggled this season and only ranks

31st

in the league. Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas have to take advantage of

that and in the first meeting between these 2 teams this season the Fish rushed

for 152 yards.

In some betting trends for this AFC East match up the Patriots are 0-4 ATS in

their last 4 road games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a

winning home record, and in their last 31 games on the road they have an Over

record of 21-10.

The Dolphins are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall, 8-2 ATS in their last 10

home games, and in their last 7 games after an ATS win they have an Over

record of 5-2.

NFL Football Teasers

NFL Football Teasers

The best way to have fun while you bet on games is through the use of teasers. A teaser wager is sort

of similar to a parlay bet. You can choose two or more teams that are not in the same wave link as the

straight bet. The difference that you can come across to when you tease on a game is that it gives you

the ability to move the straight bet by a certain amount of points and that is depended on the kind of

teaser you use. However, if one game does not cover the straight bet then your game is lost just like in a

parlay bet.

The basic teaser is a 2 team 6 pointer with probabilities of -110. Probabilities are different in

each sport book. Here is an example of a normal spread with the result after a 6 point tease:

Seattle Seahawks +6

Chicago Bears -6

Tampa Bay Bucaneers +10

Indianapolis Colts -10

For instance if you want to place a bet on the Bears and Colts, you have to hit 6 points off on

both making a straight bet of Chicago with pivkem and the Colts with -4. You not restricted on

selecting favorites, you can create Seattle +12, Tampa +16 or Colts -4. It is up to you anyway,

usually bettors use such a bet to get worth on they bet when you get key numbers. It is profitable

to use the extra 6 points to get the key numbers. For example, teasing team +2.5 p to +8.5, then

strike the numbers 3,4, 6 and 7 which are key numbers or you could tease them down -8.5 to -

2.5. Another move that could be of good use is to tease a team from +1.5 to +7.5 and get the key

numbers 3, 4, 6 and 7 too. Basically key numbers are borders that in most cases are the straight

bets of the score which is final.

However, totals can be used as elements of a teaser bet and this is considered highly as the totals

are much simpler to overcome than point spreads and you don’t have to issue any payment to

move the total than the side. Here is an illustration of a teaser probability payout chart:

TEAMS 6 POINTS 6.5 POINTS 7 POINTS

2 10/11 10/12 10/13

3 9/5 8/5 7/5

4 3/1 5/2 2/1

5 9/2 4/1 7/2

6 6/1 11/2 5/1

7 10/1 9/1 8/1

8 15/1 12/1 10/1

9 20/1 15/1 12/1

10 25/1 20/1 15/1

Duke in the ACC title game? The Blue Devils have won 8 straight games and in that span they have beaten 2 ranked teams. Florida State is the top ranked team in the nation that has the Heisman front runner in QB Jameis Winston and a defense that is ranks 1st in the nation only giving up an average of 11 ppg.

Duke has a balanced offense and a decent defense, but they are still big 29-point underdogs with a total of 61.5. The Blue Devils are 10-2 ATS this season and they have covered the spread in their last 7 games.

Ohio State vs. Michigan State – Big 10 Title Game

This game is all about Michigan State and their top-ranked run defense facing Ohio State and their 2nd ranked rushing offense. Ohio State QB Braxton Miller is the team’s leading rusher and lead RB Carlos Hyde has rushed for over 200 yards in 2 of his last 3 games and has rushed for over 100 yards in 7 straight games.

Ohio State is the 5.5-point favorite in this game with a total of 51.5.

The MSU offense is led by the rushing attack and RB Jeremy Langford has rushed for over 100 yards in 7 straight games. Last season in a defensive battle Ohio State beat Michigan 17-16. Michigan State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

Missouri vs. Auburn – SEC Title Game

Auburn is coming off their thrilling win over top-ranked Alabama and the winner of this game will secure a BCS bowl berth. Last week Tre Mason had a big rushing game for Auburn facing Alabama’s solid run defense and this week faces Missouri and their 14th ranked run D. Auburn is the 2-point favorite in this game with a total of 58.

Missouri has beaten 2 ranked teams in a row and they had over 200 yards in the air and on the ground last week in their 28-21 win over Texas A&M. Henry Josey may be the player the Auburn defense has to worry about, as the Mizzou RB has played well in the last couple of games. Auburn has the nation’s 5th ranked rushing offense and they may need to run the ball well and score, as their defense only ranks 56th in the nation against the run and 100th against the pass.

Stanford vs. Arizona State – Pac 12 Title Game

Arizona State is hosting the Pac 12 title game and they are 3-point favorites over Stanford with a total of 56. ASU’s only loss this season was on the road facing Stanford. Arizona State will be without leading rusher Marion Grice in this game and that is a big blow.

Arizona State has a solid defense and their passing offense is legit and without Grice the Sun Devils may air it out more. That may not be a bad idea facing a Stanford pass defense that only ranks 96th in the nation.

Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State

It is pretty easy for Oklahoma State, as if they win this game they will win the Big 12 and secure an automatic BCS bowl berth. OSU is a 9.5-home betting favorite with a total of 58.

OSU has a solid offense and a great defense ranking 12th in the nation only allowing an average of 18.8 ppg. The Cowboys have beaten 3 ranked teams in their last 4 games. Oklahoma will not be playing in a BCS bowl game, but they can play spoiler in this one. They will have to ride their 15th ranked rushing offense in this game.
