Some of the more offshore sports books as well as the Vegas joints have released their lines, or atleast their thoughts on the Heisman odds entering next season. I’ll analyze some of the odds, the history of the award, and some valuable plays. Odds – via 5dimes Trevone Boykin QB (TCU)   +750 Ezekiel Elliott RB (Ohio State)   +800 Dak Prescott QB (Mississippi State)   +850 Nick Chubb RB (Georgia)   +1100 Leonard...

CCons 2015 Sweet 16 Contrarian Play – 3/27/1...

  Tournament Record 0-1     Utah +5 Its hard to bet against a Duke team that has dominated in its first two tournament games and covered both games by an average of 8 points. In addition they are 6-1 ATS in their last seven contests and since the beginning of February they are 13-1 straight up. Their only loss being to Notre Dame in the conference tournament, which they could of easily tanked to get ready for...

CCon’s March Madness Pick 3/20/15

YTD RECORD 5-4 Georgia Bulldogs +6 The Bulldogs age coming off a 11 point loss to Arkansas in the second round of the SEC tournament. While the Michigan State Spartans were in the Big 10 championship game in their last contest, losing in overtime to the eventual number 1 seed in the West Wisconsin. The Spartans had won their four previous games before falling to Wisconsin, earning them the #7 seed in West. So why do I like...

Buy and Sell- March Madness Edition

Buy and Sell   During the last month of the regular season I wrote a weekly article on teams that were over valuded and teams underrated by the public. This is useful information because when a team is overvalued it leads to inflaighted lines by sportsbooks giving value to the cotrarian bettor. The same with a team scrutinized or faded by bettors leads to favorable lines in that teams favor. The idea is much like trading in...

CCons College Basketball Play 3/5

  Record YTD 5-3     South Carolina +1.5 The #18 ranked Arkansas Razorbacks travel to South Carolina today 3/5 looking to bounce back from a 17 point loss to Kentucky last Saturday. This is a sandwich game before they host Lsu this Saturday. On the flipside the Gamecocks are coming off a win vs Miss St at home last Saturday. That snapped a two game losing streak at the hands of Texas A&M and Alabama,...

College Basketball Value Betting Week of 3/2/15

College Basketball Value Betting Week of 3/2/15 Its hardly ever a good idea to blindly fade or bet for certain teams but there is opportunity to gain value betting against public perception. In last weeks article on who to buy and sell the teams suggested to buy went 2-2 while only one of the teams on the sell list underperformed. Iowa State was 0-2 last week ATS on the sell list but both Wichita State and Villanova were...

CCons College Basketball Pick 3/1

YTD record 4-3 UConn +1.5 The UConn Huskies face a ranked 23-5 SMU team at home today. This matchup is exactly two weeks since the SMU mustangs beat UConn by 18 points at home in the last matchup between these two teams. SMU has won seven straight road games and their last five overall. UConn is one in four ATS in their last five games. So why do I like UConn today? UConn needs a quality win to bolster their resume for the...

CCons College Basketball Pick 2/28

YTD 4-2 Xavier +2.5 In a tough matchup vs a Villanova team ranked 6th in the nation, Xavier looks to bolster their resume for the tournament. Villanova is coming off a 28 point drubbing of Providence at home, also having won and covered their last 8 games. On the flip side Xavier is coming off a 1 point loss to St Johns but returns home where they have been solid, winning their last game vs Butler by 17 points. Xavier is...

CCons College Basketball Pick 2/25

YTD 4-1 Indiana State +9.5 At first glance Indiana St is nothing more then a .500 team sitting at 14-14 overall, facing a nationally ranked 25-3 Wichita St state team. So a 9.5 spread for the visiting Shockers looks like a good bet but if we dig a little deeper I see a strong case for Indiana State tonight. Indiana St has won four of their last five at home with their last loss being to Northern Iowa by 10 points. This is...

College Basketball Value Betting Week of 2/23

Now that we are in the final weeks of the college basketball season, there is solid value betting against public perception. Last week I gave out three teams to buy and three teams to sell. The three teams I suggested to sell (Arizona, Kansas, and Oklahoma) went a combined 1-5 ATS for the week. Like I advised the lines on these teams would be inflated giving us value betting against them. The teams that I gave a buy rating...
