NCAA Tournament Betting Alert: UNC's Marshall unlikely to play vs. Ohio

03.23.2012     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Ohio vs. North Carolina -10.5 O/U 142.5

It looks very unlikely that North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall will play in tonight's Sweet Sixteen matchup against Ohio.


"I really don't know. I have a strong, strong inclination that he's not going to play….If he comes into my room tomorrow and says 'Hey, my wrist feels great' and drops down on the floor and does ten one-handed push ups on his right hand, then I'd say I'd probably play his rear-end. But I don't expect that to happen, I mean the guy can't brush his teeth right now."

NBA Gambling News: Los Angeles Clippers continue to falter

03.23.2012     06:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Trouble in Clipper Land after last night's 97-90 loss at New Orleans. LA has lost three straight and has just one spread cover in its last eight games. The Clippers play host to Memphis on Saturday.


"I think it's important for guys to go out there and play off instinct instead of, 'Go here, go there,' or whatever," Del Negro said recently. "I like guys to play. I like guys to get a feel for what we're doing and how we're doing it and work off the instinct and play. I think guys enjoy the game that way a little bit better. Some guys you have to put into specific spots, whether it's because of a skill level or a strength or a weakness or whatever, but you want your guys mainly to just go out there and know what the game plan is and be able to execute it at both ends."

NBA Handicapping: New York Knicks slow pace, lock down on defense

03.23.2012     06:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
New York -5.5 at Toronto O/U 194

Better defense and a slower pace from the New York Knicks as they enter tonight's game at Toronto on a five-game winning streak (6-0 ATS run).


As Basketball-Reference.com's Justin Kubatko pointed out in a piece for The New York Times, the Knicks' pace (possessions per game) has fallen under Woodson. New York averaged 94.2 possessions per game under previous coach Mike D'Antoni, but in the five games since his resignation, the team has slowed to 90.8 per game. That means the Knicks went from being the second-fastest team to the 12th-fastest team.

03.23.2012     06:22 AM     Printer Friendly
Taking a look at how accurate the betting markets have been the last two rounds of the NCAA Tournament.

Money went with the favorites 12 times, of which the market went 7-5 ATS. Money went with the underdog five times, of which the market went 4-1 ATS.

Brace yourself for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's opinion on point shaving in basketball

03.22.2012     01:25 PM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

copy_kareem.JPG

Mind you this comes from ESPN.com's "Commentary" section so it's not like it was plastered on the front page. And a good thing too because reading Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s take on basketball's "point shaving problem" is painful. Of course he led off with the recent allegations at Auburn – a situation that pretty much everyone agrees was blown out of proportion, just like the whole San Diego/FBI/Operation Hookshot/weed bust ordeal. Kareem then talks a little about Donaghy, because if you want to build a case about how dirty basketball is, Timmy D’s your poster boy. But then things really go south with point shaving references dating back to the 1940s and 50s.

Articles like this are common; point shaving bad, integrity of the game good. We get that. And to say every sport is 100 percent clean would be naive. But anytime we see phrases like "long line of gambling scandals" and "familiar story in basketball", Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Boston Celtics at Milwaukee Bucks

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Boston at Milwaukee -3.5 O/U 200
Recommendation: Milwaukee


Milwaukee is on a roll right now: 7-1 SU, 8-0 ATS in its last eight ballgames. They were positively buoyed by the acquisition of Monta Ellis at the trading deadline, giving Scott Skiles exactly what he needed to get this team into the playoffs – a good crunch time scorer.

The Bucks won by 22 on the road at Golden State in his first game with the team, then won by 29 at Portland. Ellis: “Coaches, everybody was phenomenal. I think it made it smooth for me. It’s great man, it’s even better to be out there on the floor with those guys sharing the ball. We’ve got a lot of guys who can hit shots and make plays … I think we’re going to get (in the playoffs) if we keep playing the way we did.”

The Bucks are averaging 113 points per game during their current winning Read more

NBA Handicapping: Boston-Milwaukee total 14 points higher than previous meeting

Boston at Milwaukee -3.5 O/U 200

Holy line adjustment! On today's Sportsmemo Podcast, Teddy Covers pointed out the massive difference in tonight's Boston-Milwaukee total compared to when the two teams played on February 29. That game closed 185.5 but went screaming over as Boston won 102-96. Tonight's total is currently 200/199.5. Interesting that the Celtics have yet to play a game this season with a total that closed 200 or higher. The Bucks are the strongest OVER team in the league at 29-15-1 O/U.

Sweet Sixteen Betting Notes: Syracuse wants to avoid slow paced game vs. Wisconsin

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wisconsin vs. Syracuse -3 O/U 120

Syracuse claims it will look to push the pace in tonight's Sweet Sixteen matchup against Wisconsin.  Note that against up-tempo BYU, North Carolina, Marquette, UNLV and Indiana, the Badgers played to 60, 61, 63, 62, 54 and 61 possessions.


“In the Big East we were able to play both (styles),” SU guard Brandon Triche said. “We had a few games playing in the 50s. A lot of teams tried to slow us down. I think the biggest thing for us is being able to rebound, try to speed them up a little bit as much as we can.”

“We just have to get the ball and push it and try to beat them down the court,” Fair said. “Then we have to convert on a lot of our offensive trips and not make silly turnovers.”

College Basketball Gambling: NIT, CBI and CIT Power Ratings

Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NIT
The conference may have been rightfully ridiculed and rightfully left out of the NCAA Tournament this season but they dominated the NIT. Washington and Stanford make up half of the semifinal field at MSG next week. They perhaps could have had a third team had Oregon not faced the Huskies in the quarterfinals. Note that Washington and Stanford have never had to leave their home floors but NIT Committee head C.M. Newton – a good ol’ SEC boy – tried his best to push his own through as well by giving Tennessee (#1 seed), Ole Miss (#2 seed) and Mississippi State home floor – none of which prospered despite the advantage. After all the deserved PAC-12 bashing this season they deserve some credit with their NIT performances, now let's see if they can continue to earn more by winning away from home against a pair of red-hot teams.

Here are my power ratings lines for the Semifinals:

Minnesota -1 vs. Washington
Stanford -1 vs. Massachusetts

CBI
Despite losing their leading scorer Brock Motum just two minutes into last night's game, Washington State won at Oregon State and will now host Read more

Sweet Sixteen Pointspread News: Marquette readies for Florida's outside shooting

03.22.2012     07:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Florida vs. Marquette -2 O/U 147

Marquette says it is well prepared for Florida's live-and-die-by-the-three mentality. On the season, 38.4% of the Gators' scoring comes from beyond the three-point line (sixth nationally).


"Vandy is more of a structured, robotic team," said Marquette's Vander Blue. "They like to move the ball from side to side and run plays every time. LSU reminds me a lot of West Virginia. A great rebounding team. Very physical. They play really hard. The thing about Florida is they live and die by the three, so we want to make sure we contest all threes."

Sweet Sixteen Betting Notes: Louisville wants fast pace against Michigan State

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Louisville vs. Michigan State -5 O/U 125

Louisville is once again saying it wants to push the pace against Michigan State. The Cardinals have been all over the board this postseason in terms of its possessions per game. In the second round of the Big East Tournament, they played to 83 possessions against Marquette but turned right around and played 56 and 59 possessions against Notre Dame and Cincinnati. In the first round against Davidson, there were 67 possessions while only 58 in the win over New Mexico. The other issue with playing Louisville over the total is that while the pace may be there, the shooting and scoring may not. They've averaged over a point per possession in only four of their last 10 games.


So it's good that everybody is coming back, getting healthier.  Everybody just said that we had to play a new style of basketball.  We Read more

Wisconsin vs. Syracuse -3.5 O/U 120

Syracuse's seniors are hoping their regional semifinals loss to Butler two years ago is a feeling they don't have to repeat. The Orange haven't made it past the Sweet Sixteen since they won the NCAA Championship in 2003.


“I remember the feeling,” SU forward Kris Joseph said. “I remember big Arinze crying. Everyone was pretty down. That was another year we were supposed to do great things. That’s the feeling I’m not ready to feel again.”

“We had seniors that year. AO was hurt. We wanted to win for him. We wanted to win for Andy, who played so hard,” said SU guard Brandon Triche, a freshman on that team. “This year is the same. You got Kris Jo. You got Scoop. Older guys who’ve been here before who want to win. You don’t want Read more

NFL Gambling: Tebow to Jets having no impact in betting markets

03.22.2012     06:53 AM     Printer Friendly
While Denver’s acquisition of Peyton Manning caused shockwaves across the betting community, New York's decision to pick up Tim Tebow – at this point – has had little to no impact according to oddsmakers. The Jets remain a 25-1 shot to win Super Bowl XLVII.


“I don’t see how he makes the Jets a better football team,” Andrew Patterson of Las Vegas Sports Consultants said in a telephone interview. “He’s not going to play quarterback, he’s going to come in maybe on third downs, but if a team signs a really good fullback, does it affect their win total or game lines? No, not really.”[END-QUOTE:]
