South Carolina Gamecocks vs. Vanderbilt Commodores Betting Preview – September 1, 2016

South Carolina (0-0) vs. Vanderbilt (0-0) Game Preview

Spread: Vanderbilt -3.5 (5dimes)

Total: 42.5

Kickoff: 8:00 pm ET

Location: Vanderbilt Stadium, Nashville, TN

Television Broadcast: ESPN

PREVIEW: The Commodores opened as a 2-point home favorite, but public money has since moved the line to -3.5. The total has moved even more, opening at 46.5, and since bet down four points. Bettors are expecting a low scoring game, with both these teams considered to be a little stronger defensively than they are on offense. The Gamecocks will have as many as seven first time starters, six of those on offense. Vanderbilt’s biggest weakness is on the offensive line, and that might prevent the Commodores from taking advantage of a suspect South Carolina secondary.

VANDERBILT PLAY TO WATCH:
Ralph Webb ran for 58 yards on 16 carries when the Commodores lost 19-10 at Columbia last season. He really came on at the end of the year, running for 459 yards in the last four weeks. He could put up decent numbers here at home in Week 1.

SOUTH CAROLINA PLAYER TO WATCH:
With a freshman quarterback and a lack of depth at wide receiver, the Gamecocks will have to lean heavily on their running game. Expect junior tailback David Williams to get plenty of touches, and coach Will Muschamp thinks he’ll be equal to the task. Muschamp has said that he believes Williams has potential to be one of the top backs in the SEC.

Game Analysis

This is a free play on WAS.

The Nats won Game 1 of this series in Colorado, and they have now won 10 of their last 13 overall. Colorado has lost 9 of their last 12, and injuries have really hit the Rockies hard.

Mitch Parker will toe the slab for Washington in Game 2, and he's 2-1 with a 2.73 ERA in his last five starts.

The Rockies hand the ball to Cal Quantrill, who is 2-3 with a 3.97 ERA in six home starts. He's backed up by the worst bullpen in the major leagues.

Injuries to Diaz, Blackmon and Bryant aren't going to help the Rockies.

GL,

Jesse Schule

SERVICE BIO

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
