NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Ohio Bobcats vs. Michigan Wolverines

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Ohio vs. Michigan -5.5 O/U 125.5
Recommendation: Michigan


The Wolverines program has progressively improved under head coach John Beilein culminating in this season’s 24-9 record, national ranking, and more importantly a share of the Big Ten title. Entering the conference tournament, you got the feeling that the Wolverines were fat, happy and satisfied with their regular season and would be looking forward to the Big Dance. That scenario played out as the Wolverines were fully embarrassed in a 77-55 loss to Ohio State. However, the loss likely serves as a wake-up call for Big Blue, and they just might be sitting on their best performance of the season tonight in Nashville. Beilein has proved himself over the years as a heady tournament coach. The NCAA Tournament provides a sound platform for the Wolverines’ system of play. Their half-court offense is difficult to prepare for and Beilein’s ability to mix up his defense’s anchored by their Read more

NBA Handicapping: New York Knicks tweak offense under interim coach

03.16.2012     08:02 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indiana at New York -4 O/U 200.5

Article on the reported change in offensive philosophy for the New York Knicks under interim head coach Mike Woodson. Sounds like more shots for Carmelo and Amar’e which has absolutely no chance of not working (our weak attempt as sarcasm).


"I just think he's going to utilize his leading scorers, myself and Carmelo," Stoudemire said of Woodson. "He's going to utilize us and take advantage of every opportunity out there on the court. We've been profound scorers all our careers, so he's going to make sure he takes advantage of that."

"It's going to be different for sure," Stoudemire said. "Coach Woodson has his philosophy and his offensive schemes, so we've got to readjust to that. I think so far everyone's receiving it well. We're all

NCAA Tournament Betting News: Florida wants to control tempo vs. Virginia

03.16.2012     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Virginia vs. Florida -3 O/U 122.5

Article on Florida's game plan for Virginia. Looks as if the Gators are going to try and push the pace with the hopes of avoiding the Cavs' strong half court defense. Easier said than done. In three games against up-tempo Duke and North Carolina, there were 59, 66 and 61 possessions with games scores of 119, 122 and 105.


“They do a great job holding teams down, and they have done that all year long,” UF coach Billy Donovan said. “It will be a little different for us, so to speak. We have played teams that don’t necessarily do exactly the same thing, but there are teams that have similar philosophies, similar mindsets in terms of how they play defensively.”

“Sometimes it can be difficult when a team is really disciplined with the ball and doesn’t turn

LIU Brooklyn vs. Michigan State -19.5 O/U 154
Recommendation: LIU-Brooklyn


The Big Ten’s second best delivered a Fairway forecast winner on these pages Thursday when Ohio State pulled through as a big favorite over Loyola-MD. Now the Big Ten’s best is asked to win big for their betting backers as the Midwest Region’s top seed. Michigan State (27-7) has had a magical season as co-Big Ten champs and conference tournament champions. They are a together team with a star senior leader in Draymond Green inside and a quick, dynamic point guard in Keith Appling. As usual, the Spartans are one of the nation’s top rebounding teams and play superior defense under head coach Tom Izzo. Following a buzzer beater by Ohio State to beat Michigan State in their regular season finale 12 days ago, the Spartans swept through the Big Ten tournament to beat the Buckeyes in the championship game five days ago. That redemption game for all the marbles Read more

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Bettors fade early start for San Diego State

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NC State -3 vs. San Diego State O/U 137.5

This time of year, it isn't hard for teams to get motivated but San Diego State's Tim Shelton is using the pointspread as a pick-me-up for today's early start contest against NC State. The game opened a pick 'em but has now climbed to as high as -3 in favor of the Wolfpack. The move is in large part a fade on the west-to-east travel and early start (9:40 am PT) – especially after Colorado State wore down in the second half against Murray State.


"Little things like that do motivate us," he said. "But look at the odds for our team before the season and we weren't supposed to be here in the first place."

NCAA Tournament Gambling Preview: Long Beach State vs. New Mexico

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Long Beach State vs. New Mexico -4 O/U 138.5
Recommendation: New Mexico


I’ll side here with the red hot ascending Lobos who are now 12-2 straight up and 11-3 against the spread in their last 14 games. All 12 of those SU wins were by five points or more and by an average of 18.3 points per game so don’t mind laying the asking price here. Matchups are favorable for New Mexico in this one as PF Drew Gordon figures to have his way down low with the LBSU bigs T.J. Robinson and Eugene Phelps. Neither is used to seeing the physical likes of Gordon on the low blocks and it was problematic the last time the 49ers saw a player like this when Kansas’ Thomas Robinson went for 26 points on 10-14 shooting. The subtraction of a 100% healthy 6’5” swingman Larry Anderson (Big West Defensive Player) truly hurts Long Beach and HC Dan Monson made mention of how limited they now are in a multitude of areas earlier this week. Expect New Mexico Read more

NCAA Gambling Preview: BYU Cougars vs. Marquette Golden Eagles

BYU vs. Marquette -5 O/U 153.5
Recommendation: Marquette


It was a great comeback win for BYU in its play-in game against Iona but plenty of red flags suggest this team simply isn’t ready for the step up in class they’ll face in this matchup. For the Cougars, their Cinderella story ends today.

BYU repeatedly failed when stepping up against quality opponents in 2011-12. They were blown out by the two best teams in the WCC every time they traveled; the Cougars suffered a 19-point loss to Gonzaga in the conference tournament, an 11-point loss to the Zags away and a 16-point loss to St. Mary’s away. Their one big step up away from home against a “power conference” school? A 17-point loss to Wisconsin.

We should note that’s the same Wisconsin team that got beat down by Marquette in Madison earlier this year. The Golden Eagles will have the two best players on the court in Jae Crowder and Darius Johnson-Odom. Read more

Loyola Maryland vs. Ohio State -17 O/U 130.5
Recommendation: Ohio State


Let’s tip off our Thursday evening with a blowout winner in NCAA Tournament action.  Loyola Maryland (24-8) went on a 3-0 SU/ATS run to capture the MAAC Tournament title and advance to the Big Dance. The Greyhounds are fairly methodical on offense and don’t have the talent or athletic ability to keep up with the Buckeyes. Ohio State (27-7) can excel in open court and half court sets, and statistically they are solid across the board. OSU tied for the top spot in the Big Ten in field goal shooting (47%) while holding opponents to just 41%. Ohio State is one of the top rebounding teams in the country thanks to super soph Jared Sullinger – a player that Loyola can’t handle in the middle. Sullinger and Deshawn Thomas both shoot over 53%, and with Aaron Craft at the point, their balance and strength can beat anyone. When asked to win by margin, Ohio State Read more
