College Basketball Betting: Kansas limps into Big XII Tournament

03.10.2015     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Curious to see how much effort Kansas puts into the Big XII Tournament will Perry Ellis (knee) doubtful to play and Cliff Alexander still dealing with eligibility issues. KU won six out of eight tournament titles from 2006-13 but bowed out in the semifinals last season. The Jayhawks await the winner of Wednesday's TCU-Kansas State game.


“He will wear a brace for the rest of the season,” Self said to Katz. “If the doctors say he’s not feeling well enough, we will sit him for the tournament. All indications are he is doing well with his lateral movement.

“We will press forward and put him in position, and hopefully he’ll be 100 percent by the NCAA tournament.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who has what it takes to win the Big Dance Part II

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part I of this article last week, I took a basic look at the profile of the past 16 NCAA champions.  From that profile, I was able to make a short list of potential champs in 2015, consisting of the following 12 teams:  Virginia, Duke, Notre Dame, Louisville, Kansas, Baylor, Villanova, Wisconsin, Maryland, Arizona, Utah and Kentucky.

However, since that article was written last week, one of those 12 teams has been bounced from consideration, with Baylor suffering their eighth loss of the season at Texas in overtime.  I don’t think the Bears were serious contenders to win the title, but now that they are above the seven loss cut-off line, we can eliminate Scott Drew’s squad from the discussion entirely.

The next step in the elimination process is to look at the team’s records away from home.

The NCAA championship is not won on a team’s home floor.  Even with a favorable location one weekend, a team is still going to have to win Read more

College Basketball Betting Alert: West Virginia may be without Staten and Browne vs. Kansas

03.03.2015     10:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As of this morning, West Virginia's Juwan Staten and Gary Browne are listed as doubtful for tonight's game at Kansas. At 22-7, 10-6 Big XII the Mountaineers are a lock for the NCAA Tournament and don't play again until Saturday's regular season finale vs. Oklahoma State.


“Gary [Browne] and Juwan [Staten] understand – the worst thing about losing Juwan is that he knows. He knows where guys are supposed to come open and when they're supposed to come open. So he delivers the ball better. That's because he's been out there for three years. Gary is the next guy in line that understands because, again, he's been out there,” WVU head coach Bob Huggins said following Saturday's loss at Baylor.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who has what it takes to win the Big Dance Part I

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams.   Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Last year, the Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

I write this article every year before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the tourney seedings are announced and before a single March Madness game has been played. And I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament four times in the last eight Read more

College Basketball Betting: Kansas seeks payback for loss to Iowa State

02.02.2015     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kansas is in revenge mode for tonight's home tilt against Iowa State. The Cyclones ran wild in Ames, notching 27 points in transition and 50% from the floor in an 86-81 spread covering (-3.5) win. Oddsmakers have made a big adjustment with the total with the first meeting closing 147 and tonight's game currently at 154.5.


“As of now,” Oubre said. “We owe them.”

“Our guys will be jacked and ready,” Kansas coach Bill Self said. “They made us look foolish many possessions up there in Ames.”

College Basketball Handicapping: Quick hitters on Saturday's games

01.16.2015     08:48 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are some quick hitters on this weekend's marquee college basketball matchups.

Utah at Arizona - After a home friendly schedule to start PAC-12 play, the Utes took care of business last night at Arizona State (76-59). Arizona rolled over an injury-riddled Colorado squad. The total for this one should come out somewhere in the mid-120's. It'll feature two of the top 10 defensive teams in the country in terms of efficiency. In the three other instances where they has happened this season we saw very limited scoring: Kentucky vs. Louisville (108 points), San Diego State vs. Utah (102 points), and Arizona vs. San Diego State (120 points).

Kansas at Iowa State - Would expect a lot of pace and scoring in this matchup based on last year's three meetings. The Jayhawks won both regular season meetings but the Cyclones got revenge in the Big XII Tournament. Those three contests averaged 152 possessions and 165 points. Oddsmakers have been adjusting high totals toward the under so expect this one to open around 146-147.

Ohio State at Iowa - The Hawkeyes finally got their offense going with 77 points last time Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Georgetown plays host to Kansas during finals week

12.10.2014     06:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's that time of year when finals pop up before the holidays. Georgetown is in the middle of taking exams as it gears up for tonight's rematch against Kansas. The Jayhawks won last year's meeting, 86-64, in Lawrence.


"So much of the lessons learned in that gym, in this sport, in any sport, carry over throughout life, and life isn’t always convenient,” Thompson said. “You can’t always schedule things when you want them, so just the understanding that’s life. Life comes at you that way, and you have to be prepared, and you still have to perform in all areas.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Florida Gators at Kansas Jayhawks

Florida at Kansas
Recommendation: Kansas -4 1st half


Following Florida's early season home loss to Miami, Billy Donovan was very candid in saying there was no way his team was "top 10" caliber. At least not yet. Since that defeat, things have not improved with an overtime win over UL-Monroe, overtime loss vs. Georgetown, 9-point win over UAB, and 11-point loss vs. a very flawed North Carolina squad. And while the defensive numbers are solid, it's the offensive production that is a major concern. And rightfully so considering the loss of Prather, Wilbekin, and Young. In its last four games, Florida's "best" offensive performance was a 0.95 ppp effort vs. UAB. They spent the last week of practice trying to iron out the kinks but a true road game against a top-tier defense doesn't suggest an immediate turnaround. Kansas meanwhile has looked sharp since losing to Kentucky a few weeks back. They posted dominant wins over Rider, Rhode Island, and Tennessee, and last time out put the clamps down on Michigan State in the second half of a 61-56 win. Look for the the Jayhawks to come out strong and take advantage of Florida's early season Read more

College Footbal Gambling: Oklahoma State offense lacking potency

10.08.2014     08:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The stats don't look all that different but in watching Oklahoma State it is clear this isn't a high powered, dynamic offense. Quarterback Daxx Garman has played well but is still rather "green." And he's not getting much help from the run game with the Cowboys averaging  3.5 ypc vs. FBS opponents. Iowa State came into last week allowing over 5 ypc but held OSU to 3 ypc on 42 attempts. Head coach Mike Gundy says that the team's "vanilla" approach on offense will likely remain until sizable gains are made. Note that the total for Saturday's game at Kansas was bet down from 53.5 to 50.5.


"There's three things now," Gundy said. "One is Daxx. Two is the offensive line. And three, we can't run the ball very well. So we're basic vanilla for the most part.

"Until we improve in some areas, it's difficult to really get out of our box. We have to do the best we can with the inexperience we have at those positions."

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 3-7-2014

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Syracuse has lost four of its last five games and don’t forget, it nearly lost the two games preceding this five-game slump. The Orange needed miracle plays in the waning seconds to win at Pitt (on Tyler Ennis's buzzer beater) and at home vs. NC State. Jim Boeheim's team travels to Tallahassee on Sunday to face a Florida State team that's on  the bubble and in dire need of a victory. Will starting power forward Jerami Grant be able to go against the Seminoles? As of late Friday afternoon, Grant remained 'questionable' due to a back injury. He was unable to play in this week's home loss to Georgia Tech. Grant averages 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Kansas will play without freshman center Joel Embiid for a second straight game Saturday at West Virginia. Embiid is resting back and knee injuries in hopes of getting back to 100 percent before next week's Big 12 Tournament. Embiid averages 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game. The Jayhawks covered the spread without their shot blocker in Wednesday's blowout win over Texas Tech.

Texas center Jonathan Holmes (13.2 PPG) rested a sore knee during Wednesday's 66-54 non-covering win Read more
