Miami Hurricanes vs. Pitt Panthers Betting Preview
2010-09-23

Week 4 College Football betting Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Odds gets off to a good start tonight the 1-1 Miami Hurricanes head north to take on 1-1 Pitt Panthers. Sportsbook.com currently has the Hurricanes as 4 point road favorites with a Total of 50.

Both schools need their star players to step up in a big way on Thursday. Hurricanes QB Jacory Harris threw four interceptions in the loss to OSU and Pitt’s Dion Lewis has been in a sophomore slump with just 2.9 YPC this year. With an extra week of rest, both teams will be at nearly full strength for this game, but there are a couple key injuries. Miami senior RB Graig Cooper (2,229 career rushing yards) is out with a leg injury, and Pittsburgh is still missing star DE Greg Romeus after undergoing back surgery. Romeus, the reigning Big East co-Defensive Player of the Year, had eight sacks, three forced fumbles and 11 QB hurries last year.

Miami moved the football fairly well against a strong OSU defense, racking up 232 passing yards and 120 rushing yards on 4.3 YPC, but it only had one offensive touchdown. RB Damien Berry carried 16 times for 94 yards and WR Leonard Hankerson caught seven passes for 90 yards. The defense had no answer for Terrelle Pryor, allowing the Heisman hopeful to gain 346 total yards (233 passing, 113 rushing).

After a brilliant freshman campaign (1,799 rush yds, 18 total TD), Dion Lewis has had no room to run this year. He had 10 carries for just 27 yards against New Hampshire, but Pittsburgh tried to get him touches through the air and Lewis had five catches for 52 yards. Junior WR Jon Baldwin has been the standout for Pittsburgh with 10 catches for 171 yards and two scores in the two games this season.

Pittsburgh doesn’t have a lot of signature wins recently, going 1-10 against non-conference ranked opponents since 1996. Miami has won six straight meetings, but these former Big East foes haven’t faced each other since 2003. But the coaches know each other very well, with Miami’s Randy Shannon having played under Pittsburgh’s Dave Wannstedt at Miami and also in the NFL.

Speaking of the coaches, there are a couple interesting betting trends involving each team’s head coach. By the way, to check out additional stats and trends for all of the games, check out the betting guides at Sportsbook.com.

Shannon is 4-12 ATS (-9.2 Units) off an ‘Over’ cover as the coach of MIAMI. The average score was MIAMI 24.7, OPPONENT 23.3.

Wannstedt is 12-4 ATS (+7.6 Units) after allowing 100 or less rushing yards last game as the coach of PITTSBURGH. The average score was PITTSBURGH 28.4, OPPONENT 17.6.

For those that want to bet the Miami (FL) vs. Pittsburgh over/under, consider this trend:

MIAMI is 27-10 UNDER (+16.0 Units) when the total is between 49.5 and 56 since 1992. The average score was MIAMI 27.5, OPPONENT 19.1 – (Rating = 2*).

CFB: Capital One Bowl - LSU vs. PENN STATE (1:00 PM ET, ABC)
2010-01-04

Perhaps the best matchup of the New Year’s Day bowl games, LSU & Penn State bring plenty of talent, particularly on the defensive side of the ball, into their Capital One Bowl matchup. Penn State is the favorite, minus-2 points according to Sportsbook.com, but more bettors seem to be interested in the total going under the posted number of 43.5.

Penn State has gone 7-3 in bowl games since 1995, but two of those three losses came in the Capital One (formerly Florida Citrus) Bowl series. In fact, the Nittany Lions scored just 15 points in those two games. They’ll look to bust out offensively, or at least simply outscore LSU, in the 2010 game, which should be defensive oriented. Penn State yielded just 11.8 points per game, en route to a 10-2 SU and 6-6 ATS record. LSU was 9-3, allowing just 16.0 points per game. The Tigers will also be looking to extend a run of overall success in bowl games, as they boast a 10-2 SU and 9-3 ATS record since 1995. Under head coach Les Miles, the Tigers are 15-6 ATS in games versus non-conference foes. Penn State was a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS on the road this year.

On the surface, Penn State (10-2) versus LSU (9-3) would seem like a premier bowl matchup. However, despite both teams’ lofty records, the reality is that neither of these teams were serious factors in their respective conference races. Combined, they were 0-4 against BCS conference foes and more interestingly, their offenses generated just 8.8 points per game in those matchups. Essentially, against quality opposition, both of these offenses shut down. There are also two very simple, yet powerful, trends that point to this one staying under the total of 44. Head coach Joe Paterno and Penn State are 92-69 going UNDER the total since 1992. Finally, if you would’ve blindly bet the UNDER on all Penn State and LSU games this year, you’d have some extra holiday spending money (15-7, +7.3 Units). I’ll call for that trend to continue.

Top FoxSheets.com ATS Trend
PENN ST is 6-17 ATS (-12.7 Units) in road games vs. good defensive teams who give up 17 or less points/game since 1992. The average score was PENN ST 16.6, OPPONENT 24.3 - (Rating = 1*)

Top FoxSheets.com Total Super Situation
Play Under - All teams where the total is between 42.5 and 49 (PENN ST) - with a good defense - allowing 315 or less total yards/game, after gaining 475 or more total yards in their previous game. (87-46 over the last 10 seasons.) (65.4%, +36.4 units. Rating = 2*)

CAPITAL ONE BOWL Series Trend: Georgia beat Michigan State last January in the Capital One Bowl to snap a 4-game upset winning streak by the Big Ten in the series. The last two times Penn State appeared in this game, they only scored 15 points combined, losing SU & ATS both times. Three of the L4 games have gone UNDER the total.
