Irish sportsbook Paddy Power is back at it with another wacky commercial. We don't really get the back story of this one but using tranquilizer darts on humans is always pretty funny.

NBA Handicapping: Utah Jazz continue strong home/road dichotomy

02.29.2012     12:17 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Houston at Utah -2.5 O/U 194.5

The Utah Jazz are back at home tonight which means bettors can expect a better performance. Last night at Sacramento, the Jazz shot 47% from the floor but 11-of-22 from the free throw line in a 103-96 loss. For the season, Utah is 3-12 SU, 5-10 ATS on the road and 12-6 SU, 11-7 ATS at home.

"It's real frustrating and it's getting old," Jazz center Al Jefferson said. "You'd think after four games we'd know what it takes, but for some reason we can't get it. I don't know why."

Harris called Wednesday night's game against the Rockets "definitely a must-win for us."

Patriot League Tournament Gambling Preview

02.29.2012     11:50 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Here’s a game-by-game look at tonight’s Patriot League Tournament quarterfinals.

#8 Navy @ #1 Bucknell (-17.5 / 115) – The Midshipmen went 0-14 in regular season conference play and 3-25 overall but they enter this quarterfinal round having lost by more than this price only four times this season and one of those was to Missouri. On this floor four days ago, Navy played Bucknell very competitively losing by nine 64-55. The immediate turnaround situation in this contest could be viewed as an edge for either side but whichever stance you take is dictated by the Bison’s motivational angle. They could take a bored approach to this #8 seed which they’ve disposed of twice now or they could focus on distancing themselves early to keep the crowd energetic and coast through the second half. The latter is exactly what Bucknell did on Saturday leading by double-digits almost throughout the entire contest but the Middies never quit playing and made it a single-digit final. Bucknell has won by more than this asking price once in Patriot League play and their preferred slower tempo makes it difficult to gain extreme separation. The game Read more

Big East Betting Notes: Pitino want Cardinals to run, tough to do vs. South Florida

02.29.2012     11:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
South Florida at Louisville -9 O/U 119

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino is upset that his team continues to get involved in grind-it-out, half court games. With the exception of an overtime result against DePaul, the Cardinals haven't topped 70 possessions since a 80-59 win over UConn on February 6. The problem is they may have to wait another game to get that type of pace. South Florida hasn't played a Big East game with over 65 possessions. Their fastest game to date was in large part due to the margin; a 30-point loss to Georgetown. In games against fast-paced Marquette, Villanova and DePaul, the average game score for the Bulls was 123.8. And when you account for Louisville's defensive prowess (86.7 points per possession allowed, 7th nationally), getting up over 120 tonight could be difficult. Perhaps buying Read more

Kobe Bryant listed officially listed as questionable for tonight's game against Minnesota. Bryant suffered a broken nose and concussion during the All-Star game. Here is an article on the NBA's rule in regards to players returning from concussions. Ultimately, it is the call of the team doctors rather than the player.

NBA Handicapping: Dallas goes ice cold in home loss to New Jersey

02.29.2012     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Dallas at Memphis -2 O/U 181.5

Rough shooting night (36%) for the Dallas Mavericks as they were upset by New Jersey at home 93-92. At one point the Mavs missed 14 straight shots – against one of the worst defenses in the league. Tonight, they face a much tougher stop unit in the Memphis Grizzlies (92.2 ppg allowed, 43.8% FG allowed).

"We were off, couldn’t make a shot; it was ugly, they really jumped on us and had a big lead," said Dirk Nowitzki, who was 7-of-19 from the floor and deferred to Jason Kidd three times in the final 48.9 seconds. "That’s obviously not what you want coming out of the break at home. We were sloppy -- ballhandling, shooting, everything was sloppy. And down the stretch, that’s our strength, executing, getting the ball where it needs to go, just a rough night."

College Basketball Handicapping: Tracking close ATS results

02.29.2012     07:25 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Back in early February some Fairway Followers requested updated information on college basketball ATS results, and I provided them in the Sportsmemo posting forum. With the regular season coming to a close this week, I thought it was a good time to update the results and see how this season compares to historical college basketball results. I reviewed box scores, stats and documented and tracked these results every night and the following mornings during the season.

Using historical data since the advent of the 3-point shot 25 years ago, approximately 40% of college basketball games and final scores will land within five points of the betting line. Approximately 10% of games and final scores will land within one point of the line (11% this season). This is slightly subjective with opening/closing line moves, but a good guide and indicator.

Using the closing lines as your guide for this college basketball season, here are the results month by month.  Again, nearly 40% of the college basketball games and final scores landed within five points of the betting line (39.3%) with nearly 3,200 games and results.

College Basketball results within 5 points of the line as of 2/29/2012
# Games
Within 5 points of line - %
203 - 34.6%
275 - 41.4%
382 - 40.1%

NCAA Basketball Betting Notes: Ohio State limps into matchup vs. Northwestern

Ohio State -7 at Northwestern O/U 132.5

Ohio State has lost three of five entering tonight's game at Northwestern. Most surprising is the home losses to Michigan State and most recently Wisconsin – on senior night. Jared Sullinger came out and admitted he has been distracted of late.

“I had to throw them out of practice yesterday,” he said. “They weren’t ready to practice. And this team has shown we play like we practice.”

“It is just the little stuff,” Sullinger said. “It is just me letting the refs get to me, or letting everything on the outside get to me and letting it creep in. I was

College Basketball Gambling: Rumors circulating of a scandal at UCLA

02.29.2012     06:06 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Sports Illustrated is reportedly going to print with a scandal-like story on the UCLA basketball program and its relationship with drugs. Last night ESPNU said that the UCLA athletics department plans to call a press conference to repspond to the matter.

#UCLA HC Ben Howland on upcoming SI expose: "Specifically, I can't talk about any former player or student relative to anything having to do with that. We have a comprehensive drug policy here at UCLA where any time someone fails a drug test, I'm alerted, school's alerted and player is alerted, and I think we have a good program in place for all teams to receive education and counseling and receive discipline."

Atlantic Sun Tournament Gambling Preview

Submitted by Rob Veno blog entry.
Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament
University Center, Macon, GA (Host: Mercer)

Favorite - #1 Belmont
Veteran head coach Rick Byrd (26th season) has by far the deepest and most talented team in the league. Belmont currently ranks second in the nation in points per game at 82.1 and their unselfish style has resulted in six players scoring between 9 and 14 points per game. The offense is extremely diverse executing up-tempo and half court styles with interior, perimeter and off the dribble scoring options. The Bruins depth was on full display this past Saturday as they sat starting junior PG Kerron Johnson (14 ppg) and sophomore SF Blake Jenkins due to minor injuries and still pulled out a 62-61 win right here against tournament #2 seed Mercer. At 22-7 with a 59 RPI and only one Top 50 RPI win (at Middle Tennessee State), it’s imperative for Belmont to win this tournament to gain a return trip to the NCAA Tournament. With their experience (seven upperclassmen in the nine man rotation), diversity (can effectively play two PG’s at the same time) and motivation, they should be the clear cut Read more
