South Florida vs. Cincinnati

Jack's Free Pick Friday: Cincinnati -10.5

While the Bearcats have been blown out three times this season, all three of those games came against quality opponents in Ohio State, Memphis and Miami, and two of them came on the road. After that gauntlet of a schedule, playing teams like SMU and South Florida have to feel like a breeze for the Bearcats. I look for them to make easy work of the Bulls at home in this one.

The Bearcats got back in the win column last week with a 41-3 win at hapless SMU.  It outgained the Mustangs 508-276 for the game.  The defense put forth their best effort of the season in limiting SMU to just a field goal while forcing four turnovers.  They held the Mustangs scoreless after the first quarter and cruised to a 38-point victory.

Now Cincinnati returns home, where it has one of the most underrated home-field advantages in the country. The Bearcats have gone 5-1 or better at home in five of the past six seasons. They went 6-0 in 2008, 6-0 in 2009, 5-1 in 2011, 6-1 in 2012 and 5-1 in 2013. So, in those five seasons combined, they sported a 28-3 record at home. They are a completely different animal inside the friendly confines of Paul Brown Stadium.

Despite getting five of their first seven games at home this season, the South Florida Bulls have been blown out by double-digits three times. Their only three wins have come against Western Carolina, Connecticut and Tulsa. One of those teams is an FCS opponent, while the other two are among the worst teams in the FBS. They also only won those three games all by 8 points or fewer.

This Cincinnati offense is putting up big numbers in 2014, averaging 34.3 points and 443.0 yards per game. Gunner Kiel is one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the country. He is completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 1,853 yards with 19 touchdowns against six interceptions. He should have his way with a USF defense that is giving up 29.0 points and 418.3 yards per game.

I just don’t believe that South Florida has the offensive firepower to keep up with Kiel and company in this one. The Bulls are averaging just 21.7 points and 311.3 yards per game to rank 120th out of 128 teams in total offense. That’s really bad when you consider the opponents they have faced thus far are giving up averages of 28.4 points and 400 yards per game.

I believe this line has been set lower than it should be because USF beat Cincinnati 26-20 at home last year. However, a closer look at the box score shows that the Bearcats should have won, but gave it away. They outgained the Bulls 350-241 for the game, but the Bulls got two non-offensive touchdowns on four Cincinnati turnovers, which was the difference in the game. Don’t expect the Bearcats to make the same kind of mistakes at home this time around.

Cincinnati is 12-2 ATS in its last 14 games off a game with a turnover margin of +4 or better. The Bulls are 6-15 ATS in their last 21 games following a ATS win. South Florida is 8-21 ATS in its last 29 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in its previous game. Cincinnati is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 meetings with South Florida.  Bet Cincinnati Friday.

UMass vs. Toledo
UMass
+17-115
  at  BMAKER
in 2d

Massachusetts is just 2-6 on the season but it is much better than that record shows. Four of those losses have been by five points or less including three by a field goal or less so a few breaks here and there and the record could be a lot better. The Minutemen won just one game in each of the past two seasons but have already surpassed those totals thanks to its current two-game winning streak. Defeating Kent and Eastern Michigan may not be overly impressive but both wins were blowouts and they outgained the two opponents by 141 and 282 yards respectively. Toledo is coming off its bye week following a loss at Iowa St. which snapped its three-game winning streak. The Rockets are now laying their biggest number of the season which I feel is unjustified against one of the better teams in the MAC that are getting a different perception by the public. They have been outgained on four of their six games against teams from the FBS as their defense has been horrendous. That is not a good sign for a Massachusetts team that is starting to hit its stride offensively, averaging 39.8 ppg over its last four games. We don't need the outright victory here as getting this many points against a horrific defense is a sure take. That defensive ineptness is backed up by a situation where we play on road underdogs in the second half of the season that are averaging between 5.6 and 6.2 yppl going up against teams allowing between 5.6 and 6.2 yppl. This situation is 31-7 ATS (81.6 percent) over the last five seasons. Play (149) Massachusetts Minutemen

Connecticut vs. ECU Over 55.5

The talk about the ECU Pirates has died down. They are a good team but their league is just not going to elevate them enough. In three home games they have not scored less than 45 points so against a weak Connecticut team they just might go over all by their lonesome.

The reason the number is relatively low is that they might have to. The Huskies are terrible on offense. With the off week to prepare they should have more jump to their attack.

Free Play from Doc’s Sports. #193 Take Texas Longhorns over Kansas State Wildcats (Saturday 12 pm ESPN) The Longhorns are getting better under new coach Charlie Strong and have only been dominated one time this year. Kansas State is coming off a big victory against Oklahoma last Saturday, a game the Sooners gave away with three miscues in the kicking game. Therefore I do not believe Kansas State is good enough to be laying double digits in this game. Texas seems to play to the level of their competition and you can bet they will be pumped up for this game. Texas has covered 9 of their last 12 games when they are and underdog on the road. The Wildcats win this game but it comes much closer than what the experts believe. Doc’s Sports nailed their NFL Game of the Year last week when the underdog Chiefs beat the Chargers straight-up. Expect more of the same this weekend with a full slate of winners on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday you cannot afford to miss.

Oakland Raiders vs. Cleveland Browns
Oakland Raiders
+7-105
  at  PINNACLE
in 3d

1* Free Play Oakland Raiders.

The 0-6 Oakland Raiders are in Cleveland to take on the 3-3 Browns. Both teams are coming off losses. After losing 31-28 to the Chargers two weeks ago, Oakland would fall 24-13 at home to the Cardinals last week. It’s the worst start to a season for the Raiders since losing their first 13 games in 1962: "This is as bad as you're going to get through the first part of the season," safety Charles Woodson remarked after the loss to Arizona. "We haven't won a game. How much worse can it get than that, than not winning a game?" Rookie QB Derek Carr has looked brilliant at times and pretty ordinary in others so far this year, he had four TD’s in the loss to the Chargers, but finished just 16 for 28 for 173 yards vs. the tough Cardinals defense. Carr though catches a break this week in playing against a Cleveland Browns unit which ranks 23rd in opposing passing yards. After a big 31-10 win over rival Pittsburgh, the Browns looked disastrous in last week’s 24-6 setback at Jacksonville. Cleveland settled for field goals in two trips inside the 20-yard line and failed to convert on fourth-and-1 at the 24. The Browns entered the weekend with the third best rushing attack, but looked anemic, 30 attempts for 69 total yards in the end. Despite the Raiders being winless this year, I believe these teams are moving in opposite diretions right now. Oakland has performed well vs. two playoff bound teams over the last two weekends, Cleveland continues to do what it does best and that is to show a ton of inconsistency from game to game. I think “sprinkling a little” on the money line isn’t a bad idea here either; consider a second look at the visitors in this one.

Play on:  Philadelphia +2-1/2 (269) over Arizona @ 4:05 Eastern

Coming into action the Dallas Cowboys are 6-1 and at the top of the NFC East.  The Eagles showing off a bye 5-1 needing a huge road win to hopefully keep pace with the Pokes who are facing floundering Washington (2-5) on Monday night down in the Lone Star State.  Arizona comes in 5-1 after defeating Oakland (0-6) 24-13 on the road.  Note, the Cardinals defeated a Raiders unit ranked #31 (15.3) and #32 (282.7) in scoring and yardage.  Arizona built a 14-0 lead after QB Palmer threw 13-16 setting the game pace early.  Overall the Arizona record is amazing considering they have used three different quarterbacks with a much injured defense. Bruce Arians is now 15-7 since becoming head coach of the Cardinals. In order for the Eagles to win on the road they will need to hurry and distract the veteran Palmer.  Philly has put together 16 sacks in the last three games vs. San Francisco, St. Louis and NYG. Today during practice we noticed only guard Mathis was not suited up, but center Kelce seemed healthy, but can’t estimate his ability to start.  Believe QB Foles needs a big game to control the tempo in this emotionally charged situation.  Foles leads the league with 10 turnovers after having only 2 in 2013.  He will need to author an attack that can break down (McCoy and Sproles) the Cards rushing defense that holds the opposing rushing attacks to slightly over 72 yards per game (#1).  Their overall defense is holding opponents to 19.8 points (#5) per game.  Still, the Eagles possess multiple sets that should confuse the defense giving the running attack some room with a screen or two as part of the overall rhythm. FOOTBALL OUTSIDERS has listed the Eagles as the #1 special teams unit in the NFL. We can’t argue with their big play ability…MAJOR EDGE.  Finally, the UNDERDOG in the series has covered 4 straight in Vegas.

#1 in MLB TOTALS...

Currently we are on a 5-0 TOP PLAY run in College and NFL selections.  More important our FAMOUS TRIPLE CROWN PACKAGES are still sizzling with a 12-1 (92.3%) record, selections hitting at a 31-8 (79.5%) clip.  We cashed 2-of-3 last Saturday with 10* UMass (Eastern Edge Game of the Week) and 10* West Virginia (SU UNDERDOG WINNER) the two TOP PLAYS.  We hit our LINE MISMATCH GOY two weeks ago, and this week we are releasing our MOTO GAME OF THE YEAR. No matter, buy-in as we will have another huge package of games Saturday and Sunday. Good Luck, and thank you.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Baltimore Ravens
+1-111

Take Baltimore (#267)

My clients and I cashed a winning Big Ticket bet supporting the Bengals in Week 1 on the road at Baltimore.  Cinci dominated that game early, but settled for five first half field goals.  After halftime, the Ravens scored 17 unanswered to take the lead.  But a 77 yard bomb from Andy Dalton to AJ Green in the final minutes allowed the Bengals to escape with a victory on Baltimore’s home field; their first road win over the Ravens since 2009.

But the Bengals team that we saw on opening day is not the same Bengals team that Marvin Lewis is fielding right now.  AJ Green has a bad toe, unable to suit up in their last two ballgames.  TE Tyler Eifert is out as well.  That duo combined for more than half of Cinci’s receiving yards in that Week 1 win.  Defensively, the Bengals have a cluster injury problem at linebacker.  All three LB starters were off the field by the second half of last week’s loss at Indy; none of them are sure things to suit up this week.  Throw in an impact injury to stud CB Leon Hall (questionable for Sunday), and you can understand why Cinci’s defense has struggled in recent weeks.

The Bengals have a ‘value’ problem as well as their injury concerns and Baltimore’s ‘same season divisional revenge’ concerns.  Cincinnati’s season long stats look just fine, outgaining their foes by 0.3 yards per play.  They’ve got a positive turnover differential, Dalton’s QB rating is at the highest of his career, and their pass defense numbers (opposing QB passer rating numbers) rank among the top five teams in the NFL.

But those full-season numbers are heavily influenced by the Bengals first three games of the season, all relatively well-played wins and covers.  Over their last three games, it’s been a very different story.  Cinci’s defense allowed more than 500 yards against Indy last week on the heels of allowing 80 points in their previous two games, a struggling unit.  And Cinci got shut out last week, the second time in the last three games that the offense couldn’t throw the football effectively.  Looking solely at Cinci’s 2014 numbers creates a somewhat misleading profile.

Baltimore has found their mojo since that Week 1 loss to the Bengals, winning five of their last six contests thanks to the emerge of a big play passing game that was largely absent last year but was on full display when they won the Super Bowl two years ago.  Joe Flacco is currently sporting the best QB rating of his career; averaging more than ten yards per attempt three times in the last four games.  RB Justin Forsett has seven 20+ yard rushing attempts for the year, making big plays out of the backfield.  And the Ravens defense has been rock solid, particularly in the red zone, allowing 21 points or less in every game since their opening day defeat against Cincinnati.  Right now, Baltimore is the better team, catching points.  Take the Ravens.

Detroit Lions vs. Atlanta Falcons
Detroit Lions
-3½-108
  at  PINNACLE
in 3d

There are huge red flags for the Atlanta Falcons right now. After starting the season out on a positive note, they have since lost 4 straight, both SU and ATS. Most of the games haven't even been close to sniffing a point spread cover. The defense is undermanned and in disarray, allowing way too many points to give their offense any shot. Atlanta currently ranks 29th in total passing yards per game and 27th in rushing yards. The long trip to London won't do them any favors either. All of the quotes coming out of Falcons camp have been negative, with Roddy White and the veterans extremely frustrated. This O-line can't protect Matt Ryan, and as a result he is taking a beating.

The Lions meanwhile continue to look strong. They've won 2 in a row behind a solid defense, especially the front 7. With Atlanta's line decimated by injuries, the Lion's D-line will have no trouble putting pressure on Ryan. On the other side of the ball, Detroit can pick it's poison, either focusing on the ground attack or the passing game. Either way they will be able to exploit this Falcon's defense and cruise to a rather easy victory. Take the Lions.

Don't miss out on any of my packages for the upcoming weekend, all of which offer TREMENDOUS VALUE. I continue to put MONEY in my clients pockets, so if you're not on of my clients, now is the time to get on board. Let's make some CASH!

ANDRE RAMIREZ NFL DIAMOND GAME OF THE YEAR

TODAY'S WINNER: JAGUARS +7 POINTS

Today we are laying the money on the Jaguars +7 points.The Jaguars should have received a nice confidence boost after breaking their nine-game losing streak with a home victory against the Browns. We like Miami much more in an underdog role than as chalk where they are 0-3 ATS the past three
times laying more than four points. Ryan Tannehill has picked up his game, though, since being disrespected by Joe Philbin throwing for 799 yards in his last three games. Blake Bortles is Jacksonville's future. That future isn't quite now as Bortles has turned the ball over 12 times in four starts.  According to my algorithms, I have Miami winning 17-14, 13-10, and the Jaguars winning 21-17. Lay the money on the Jaguars plus the points.

The Michigan Wolverines have found out recently what a "Little brother' does when they grow up.....They kick the crap out of their bigger brother. That is what has been happening and will continue to happen this weekend in East Lansing. i see The Spartans of Michigan State controlling all aspects of this game. The Spartans will be able to move the ball against the Wolverine and the Spartan defense will be able to contain the Wolverines offense much as they did last year. Granted the Spartans defense isn't as good as last year but neither is the Wolverine’s offense.

I think Michigan will keep it close on emotion at the start but Sparty will pull away in the second half and win BIG.

Play on Michigan State.
