Friday's betting tips: Bettors jumping on Razorbacks

Who’s hot

NCAAF: Arkansas is 4-0 against the spread in its last four meetings with LSU.

NCAAF: Tulsa is 16-5 against the spread in its last 21.

NCAAB: Syracuse is riding a 4-0 run against the spread.

NCAAB: Louisville has covered in 10 of its last 12.

NHL: Boston is 10-1 in its last 11.

NHL: Calgary has won 21 off its last 27 meetings with St. Louis.

Who’s not

NCAAF: Nebraska is 3-8-1 against the spread in its last 12.

NCAAF: Akron is riding a 4-10 skid against the spread against teams with a winning record.

NCAAB: The under is 0-5 in Florida’s last five home games.

NCAAB: Wisconsin is 4-10 against the spread in its last 14 neutral site games.

NHL: Carolina is 3-8 in its last 11 overall.

NHL: Montreal has lost each of its last five games in Philadelphia.

Key stat

16.5 – The basketball Pitt Panthers have been favored by an average of 16.5 points in the three games they’ve seen a line this season. They head into Friday’s date with Pennsylvania at 0-3 against the number and are as 8-point road favorites.

Injury that shouldn’t be overlooked

Brenden Morrow, Dallas Stars - Dallas Stars captain Brenden Morrow will miss the next three games with an upper body injury. Morrow was injured during Monday's 3-1 home win over the Edmonton Oilers. The 32-year-old Morrow has collected three goals, six assists and 39 penalty minutes in 20 games this season and is a crucial member of both special teams units.

Game of the day

Arkansas Razorbacks at LSU Tigers (-12, 52.5)

Notable quotable

“We know the opponent and we know what they are capable of. I think it’s fabulous they have the ranking they have, and it’s well-deserved. By the same token, it doesn’t matter to us. That’s a team that stands in our way to win the West Division title. It think our guys understand what we’ve done the last several weeks is what we have to do again.” - Tulsa coach Bill Blankenship on Houston and the matchup between the two teams Friday afternoon. Tulsa is set as a 3-point home underdog.

Notes and tips

The Arkansas Razorbacks are on an epic run against the spread having covered in 16 of their last 22 overall and bettors are all over them at +12 at LSU Friday afternoon. About 60 percent of *********** Consensus bettors are supporting the Razorbacks to cover their fifth straight matchup with the Tigers.

NBC opens its annual NHL coverage with a doozy Friday afternoon as the Detroit Red Wings visit the Boston Bruins. The network’s dubbing the game “Showdown” and it may actually live up to that. The Wings have rebounded after a slow start to win seven of their last nine while Boston is just three points back of league-leading Minnesota. The Bruins are set as -145 favorites for the 2 p.m. ET start.

Armadillo: Friday's six-pack

Some football trends to think about this weekend.........

-- Ohio State won its last seven games against Michigan.

-- Eight of last nine Oregon-Oregon State game went over the total.

-- Tennessee covered seven of last nine games against Kentucky.

-- Last five UCLA-USC games stayed under the total.

-- Rice Owls covered eight of last nine games against SMU.

-- Six of last eight Arkansas-LSU games went over the total.


********************


Armadillo: Friday's List of 13: Things I'm looking for this weekend

13) Weird system they have in college football. If Alabama/LSU both win their games this weekend, Crimson Tide is pretty much guaranteed a spot in the national title game, but LSU won’t be, because they’ll have to win the SEC title game against Georgia.

12) What team will pickup Kyle Orton? Lot of teams could use him, and he’s not even that good. Strange to see someone like him, an obviously competent player, cut at this time of year. Does it mean we’re going to have some scripted Brady Quinn appearances in Denver?

11) Texas-Texas A&M are meeting for the last time as league rivals, and that’s strange to type. 117 years they’ve been playing. Hard to imagine they won’t get back together and play in a few years. That big stadium Jerry Jones has in Arlington holds a lot of people who would spend a lot of money to see it, and in this world, money talks. Loudly.

10) Six teams that played on Thanksgiving Day came into the day with a combined record of 42-18, the best record of Turkey Day teams since the ’75 teams were a combined 28-12.

9) UCLA is a 14-point dog to USC but if they win, they go to the first Pac-12 title game. Supposedly, Bruins will wear their road whites, ending string in this rivalry where both teams wore their home jerseys, no matter where the game was played.

8) I keep hearing how horrible the Patriot defense is, but they always seem to win. Then I think about Jackson and Maclin running thru that secondary and I wonder who is going to cover them Sunday. Very interesting game, probably Sunday’s most interesting game.

7) Virginia has never won the ACC football title outright, but if they upset Virginia Tech this week, they’ll play Clemson in the league title game. Still think Cavalier coach Mike London is Penn State’s next football coach; not sure he’d be wise to take it, but think he’ll get offered the job.

6) Chargers lost their last five games; Denver is 4-1 since they made Tebow the starting QB, yet San Diego is a 6.5-point favorite. Why is that? Public perception obviously, but I do think it’s a bad line. Bronco players believe in Tebow, and belief means a lot in sports.

5) Kentucky lost its last 26 games against Tennessee; neither team is very good this year, but the Vols need a win to become bowl eligible which is big, because a bowl bid means extra practices, which help more than the game does. Additional random thought: Derek Dooley needs to lose those orange pants; they’re very, very bright.

4) Giants play the Saints Monday night and the Packers next week; they really, really need to win one of those two games, or the jackals will be circling Swamp Stadium looking for Tom Coughlin’s head.

3) Can someone please give Brady Hoke a coat for Christmas? Michigan’s coach didn’t wear one last week in 40-degree weather in Ann Arbor; he came to Michigan from San Diego State, he had to be cold last week. I was cold just watching him.

2) Caleb Hanie/Matt Leinart are both thrust into the spotlight this week, taking over the starting QB role for contending teams due to injuries to the starter. Have more faith in Hanie than Leinart, because no one coaches up backup QB’s like Mike Martz. Think both guys will fare well, though.

1) Quick baseball thought; the hideously greedy bastards who own the Bronx Bombers are raising bleacher tickets $5 a game next year, like they need the money. They’ve got the highest payroll in baseball every year, yet they’ve only won one World Series since 2000.

They blackmailed the government (threatened move to Meadowlands) to get their new stadium built to their financial advantage, they charge $9 for a beer, now they’ve got to squeeze another $5 a game out of the regular guy who goes to the games to go root for them. Terrific bunch of guys they are.

Where the action is: NCAAF Week 13 line moves

Sportsbooks are bracing for a busy Week 13 schedule. We talked to Jay Rood, sportsbook manager at the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas, about the biggest line moves heading into Saturday’s action:

Eastern Carolina Pirates at Marshall Thundering Herd -- Open: +2.5, Move -2.5

According to Rood, two groups came in big on Marshall Thursday, flipping the spread to the home side. There hasn’t been much public action on this C-USA game, and there is zero money on Eastern Carolina.

“This is a total head-to-head between the books and the sharps,” says Rood.

Wyoming Cowboys at Boise State Broncos – Open: -31.5, Move: -34.5

This is another game in which almost all the action has been from wiseguys. Rood says two groups came in and bet BSU heavily on Friday morning, forcing the bookmakers to jump from 32.5 straight to 34.5.

“We’ve made an aggressive move,” says Rood. “The wiseguys have been spot on with these games. I don’t imagine we’re going to attract any action on the other side, so we’re moving even though it leaves us open to a big middle.”

Troy Trojans at Western Kentucky Hilltoppers – Open: -7, Move: -5.5

This spread moved off the key number and into no-man’s land. Rood says all the action has been on the Trojans and that bettors could care less about the key number.

“They are seeing one of two things,” says Rood. “A: They feel like we have the wrong team favored. Or, B: They think we’ve overvalued the home side.”

Virginia Cavaliers at Virginia Tech Hokies – Open: -5.5, Move: -3.5, Move: -4

The spread for the ACC grudge match has danced around. Says Rood: “We’ve been up and down the ladder on this one” after a sharp group came in and took the +4.5, then another came in and bought back the -4.

“As long as it doesn’t land on 4, we’ll be fine,” says Rood. “But now that I’ve uttered those words, I’m sure it will come in at 4.”

College football Week 13 action: What bettors need to know
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Georgia Bulldogs at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (+6, 54.5)

THE STORY: Motivation will not be an issue for either No. 14 Georgia or No. 21 Georgia Tech when the two in-state rivals meet at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The Bulldogs are one of the hottest teams in the country, having won nine games in a row since starting the season 0-2. Georgia clinched the SEC East Division last week and awaits LSU, Arkansas or Alabama in next weekend’s SEC Championship Game in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets rebounded from a loss against Virginia Tech that eliminated Tech from the ACC Coastal Division title chase, winning 38-31 at Duke.

Much like everything else between Georgia and Tech, the series history sparks debate. Georgia claims it leads 61-37-5, not counting two Tech wins in 1943-44. Tech naturally counts the two victories, saying the series record is 61-39-5. Georgia has won nine of the past 10 meetings.

TV: ESPN, ESPN3.com.

LINE: Georgia opened around -5.5 and was bet up to -6.5 before settling around -6.

ABOUT GEORGIA (9-2, 7-1 SEC): Georgia played perhaps its worst game in two months last week, scoring just one offensive touchdown and posting a season-low in points scored in a 19-10 victory over Kentucky in Athens. With leading rusher Isaiah Crowell out after the first series with an injured ankle, and second-leading rusher Carlton Thomas not in uniform, the Bulldogs got 101 yards rushing from Brandon Harton. Both Crowell and Thomas are expected to play this week. Georgia’s defense ranks fourth in the nation, and figures to provide a strong challenge for Tech’s triple-option attack.

ABOUT GEORGIA TECH (8-3, 5-3 ACC): The Yellow Jackets run the ball as well as any team in the nation. Tech ranks second in the country in rushing offense (323.5 yards) and 17th in points scored (36.5). The Yellow Jackets rushed for five touchdowns last week against Duke. Quarterback Tevin Washington rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown, and passed for 185 yards. Tech leads the ACC and ranks 23rd nationally in passing defense, but gave up season highs in pass completions, attempts and touchdowns last week.

TRENDS:

* Bulldogs are 6-0 ATS in their last six meetings in Georgia Tech.
* Underdog is 3-1-1 ATS in their last five meetings.
* Road team is 12-3-1 ATS in their last 16 meetings.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Longtime Georgia broadcaster Larry Munson died Sunday at age 89. Munson called Georgia games from 1966-2008.

2. Georgia gave up 512 yards of total offense to Tech last year, but held on for a 42-34 victory in Athens.

3. A victory would give Tech nine wins for the third time in four years under coach Paul Johnson.

PREDICTION: Georgia 24, Georgia Tech 17 – The Bulldogs’ defense will stop the Yellow Jackets’ triple option just enough for Georgia to edge its in-state rival.



Ohio State Buckeyes at Michigan Wolverines (-7.5, 44.5)

THE STORY: The Big Ten's signature rivalry takes center stage when Ohio State travels to face No. 16 Michigan. The Buckeyes have won six consecutive games against the Wolverines (excluding last year's vacated victory) but are down this season, coming off consecutive losses against Purdue and Penn State. Michigan, meanwhile, is looking to carry over momentum from a 45-17 rout of then-No. 17 Nebraska.

TV: ABC.

LINE: Michigan opened as high as -8 and was bet down to 7.5, with a few -7 spreads out there.

ABOUT OHIO STATE (6-5): The Buckeyes, who are just 1-3 in true road games, have struggled this year largely to a stagnant offense that ranks 108th among FBS teams in total yardage (315.0) and 118th in passing (118.0). Quarterback Braxton Miller is the team's leading rusher with 595 yards, but he has completed just 48.6 percent of his passes. Ohio State has the 14th-ranked defense in the nation, yielding an average of 19 points.

ABOUT MICHIGAN (9-2): Junior QB Denard Robinson has been the headliner, but the Wolverines owe much of this year's revival to an improved defense that is sixth nationally in points allowed (15.6) while scoring three touchdowns itself. Senior LB Brandon Herron has returned a fumble and an interception for scores. The country's 12th-ranked rushing offense is paced by Robinson (993 yards, 14 TDs) and sophomore RB Fitzgerald Toussaint (891 yards, 9 TDs).

TRENDS:

* Buckeyes are 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings.
* Favorite is 4-0 ATS in their last four meetings.
* Buckeyes are 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings in Michigan.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Though it has not beaten the Buckeyes since 2003, Michigan still holds a 57-43-6 lead in the overall series.

2. This marks just the third time in series history that both teams have a first-year head coaches. New Ohio State coaches are 5-10-2 in their debuts against Michigan.

3. Ohio State had not lost back-to-back November games since 1999, when it dropped three straight to finish its last non-winning season at 6-6.

PREDICTION: Michigan 27, Ohio State 13. The Buckeyes' inability to move the ball, particularly on the road, will likely mean the end of their longest win streak against the Wolverines.



Alabama Crimson Tide at Auburn Tigers (+20.5, 47)

THE STORY: After winning a National Championship last season, Auburn has taken a bit of a step back in 2011. Still, Tigers fans will see the season as a great success if they can find a way to knock rival Alabama out of the BCS title game. Things are lined up perfectly for the Crimson Tide, who will are ranked second in the BCS standings and will likely lock up their spot in the National Championship Game with a win in the 76th Iron Bowl at Auburn on Saturday afternoon. The Crimson Tide came up just short, 28-27, in th Iron Bowl last season, surrendering a 24-point lead at home. This year’s edition of the Alabama defense is not likely to repeat that letdown. The Tigers are yielding more points than they have scored overall but still managed to be bowl eligible.

TV: 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS.

LINE: Alabama opened -21 and has been bet down slightly to -20.5.

ABOUT ALABAMA (10-1, 6-1 SEC): The Crimson Tide have spent the season shutting down everyone in their path, allowing an average of 8.4 points while leading the nation in both scoring and total defense. It came as a bit of a surprise last week when FCS school Georgia Southern rushed for 302 yards and scored a season-high 21 points against the Alabama defense. Trent Richardson made sure the Crimson Tide would not suffer an historic upset, padding his Heisman resume with 175 yards and three total touchdowns.

ABOUT AUBURN (7-4, 4-3): The Tigers have gotten crushed by the other top teams in the SEC this season, losing by a combined 128-31 to Arkansas, LSU and Georgia. Sophomore Clint Moseley has replaced junior Barrett Trotter at quarterback in the last four games and has had some success, throwing five touchdowns against two interceptions. His 167 yards in last week’s 35-16 win over Samford marked a career high.

TRENDS:

* Under is 4-0-1 in the last five meetings.
* Home team is 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings.
* Crimson Tide are 1-5 ATS in their last six meetings.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Richardson broke the Alabama record with his 20th rushing touchdown last week. He is three behind Tim Tebow’s SEC mark.

2. Alabama’s seniors have won a school-record 46 games.

3. The visiting team has won eight of the last 12 Iron Bowls, and 19 of the last 23 meetings have been decided by 10 points or less.

PREDICTION: Alabama 28, Auburn 10. The Crimson Tide defense will not have a problem with Moseley and the Tigers offense.



Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Stanford (-7, 58.5)

THE STORY: Quarterback Andrew Luck tries to put a final stamp on his Heisman Trophy campaign when No. 5 Stanford hosts No. 24 Notre Dame on Saturday. Both teams are coming off closer-than-expected victories. Luck and the Cardinal kept their slim national championship hopes alive with a 31-28 victory over California last week, while the Fighting Irish extended their winning streak to four by edging Boston College 16-14.

TV: ABC.

LINE: The Cardinal opened as 6.5-point faves and have been bet up to a touchdown.

ABOUT NOTRE DAME (8-3): The Fighting Irish have been carried in recent weeks by their ground game, but they took a hit last week when the team's No. 2 rusher, Jonas Gray (791 yards, 12 touchdowns), was lost for the season because of a knee injury. Junior running back Cierre Wood, who has gained 1,001 yards on the ground and 175 more on 25 receptions, will be counted on to carry more of the load. Mistakes have plagued the Irish, who rank second-to-last nationally in turnover margin (minus-1.09).

ABOUT STANFORD (10-1): The Cardinal boast the nation's most touted NFL prospect in Luck (2,937 yards passing, 31 touchdowns), who ranks fifth among FBS quarterbacks in passing efficiency, but their offense is far from a one-man show. Stanford averages 209 yards on the ground, led by junior Stepfan Taylor (1,035 yards, eight touchdowns). An underrated defense holds up its end, ranking fifth in rushing defense (93.4 yards) and 24th in total defense (333.45). Senior linebackers Chase Thomas has 14.5 tackles for a loss.

TRENDS:

* Fighting Irish are 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings in Stanford.
* Fighting Irish are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
* Road team is 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings.

EXTRA POINTS:

1. Notre Dame leads the series 17-8, but has lost the last two meetings, including 37-14 at home last season. The Irish are 6-5 all-time at Stanford Stadium.

2. Stanford has won 22 of its last 25 home games dating back to the end of the 2007 season, with all of the losses coming in conference play.

3. Notre Dame senior safety Harrison Smith and junior linebacker Manti Te'o enter the game with 299 career tackles apiece, tied for 10th on the school's all-time list.

PREDICTION: Stanford 37, Notre Dame 34 - Though both defenses are improved this season, the series has been dominated by offensive fireworks in recent years and that trend figures to continue Saturday.
