College Basketball Betting Free Play: James Madison Dukes at Drexel Dragons

James Madison at Drexel -1.5 O/U 139
Recommendation: Over


All 10 teams make the Colonial tournament which doesn't place a lot of meaning on tonight's James Madison-Drexel game. The Dukes have an outside shot at avoiding a first round game but need help while the Dragons appear headed for the 10th seed. Under first-year head coach Zach Spiker, Drexel has attempted to play at a faster pace. The results have been hit and mostly miss but compared to last year, pace and offensive efficiency is up. The Dragons have consistently played games well over tonight's total of 139 but not of late. In their last three games, no team hit the 70-point mark as all three went under the total. In fact, Drexel has gone under the total in five straight. As for the last three, Towson and Elon sport the CAA's top two defensive efficiency marks and Delaware is super-slow and likes to play zone. The average game score in those games was 130 but the pace was by no means slow (69.7 possessions avg.). James Madison has played slow for much of the season but isn't afraid to trade buckets with the faster teams in the CAA. In four games against up-tempo UNC Wilmington and William Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas A&M Aggies at Arkansas Razorbacks

Texas A&M at Arkansas -3.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Over


In the first meeting between Arkansas and Texas A&M in College Station, the Aggies were able to control tempo (64 possessions) but still lost 62-60. The venue switches to Bud Walton Arena where the Razorbacks tend to control pace and score at a higher clip. A&M coach Billy Kennedy on tonight's game: "We’re going to need to score,” he said. "You get opportunities to score in transition against them. We need to make good decisions and put the ball in the hole. You’ve got to take good shots against them. If the game is in the 80s or 90s we’re in trouble.” They'll have their chances tonight as Arkansas ranks last in the SEC in strength of schedule according to Ken Pom and yet still own the league’s third-worst defensive efficiency. A&M hasn't been shy about putting up points on some of the SEC's "all offense, no defense" teams. Against LSU, the Aggies hung 92 and 85. Against Ole Miss they hit for 80. And last time out against Auburn, they notched 81. Also note that the first meeting had 102 points with just under 10 minutes to Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Illinois Fighting Illini

Northwestern -1.5 at Illinois O/U 135
Recommendation: Northwestern


Second meeting of this in-state battle between Northwestern and Illinois. In the previous contest, two weeks ago in Evanston, the Illini walked out with a 68-61 victory so expect the NU group to be revenge-minded tonight. The Wildcats were minus star guard Scottie Lindsey in the initial matchup but he returned to the starting lineup Saturday and played 24 minutes. With Lindsay back, not only does Northwestern have the leading scorer (15.0 ppg) on the floor tonight but his presence also boosts their defense significantly. Lindsay combined with Vic Law gives NU arguably the best set of wing defenders in the Big Ten which should make life a bit tougher on the Fighting Illini’s perimeter shooting this time around.

Northwestern kept Illinois interior threat Maverick Morgan pretty quiet in the initial meeting holding him to 5-of-12 shooting and only two free throw attempts but the Illini nailed 42% (8-of-21) from three-point land. Have to believe Lindsay’s presence will help quiet the Illinois guards and wing players who accounted for 56 points last Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Bettors need to know mid-major conference tournaments

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Many mid-major college basketball conferences will tip off their respective tournaments next week. Understanding the format of these tournaments is imperative to betting the final week of the regular season. You optimally want to find teams with something to play for in terms of seeding, especially if the opponent has little to nothing to play for. I will examine several leagues and how the race for seeding currently stands.

Colonial  - The CAA Tournament will be held in Charleston, South Carolina. The top six seeds will go straight through to the quarterfinals. Prior to that, there will be two first round games pitting the no. 7 vs. no. 10 and no. 8 vs. no. 9 with the two winners advancing.  UNC Wilmington, Charleston, Towson, Elon, William & Mary and Northeastern are currently make up the top six. Northeastern has a slim one-game lead over James Madison and a two-game lead over Hofstra and Delaware. Northeastern has a tough final two games as they face Elon and UNC Wilmington on the road while James Madison plays the more manageable slate hosting Drexel and Hofstra. The race for the final first round bye is very much alive. Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Iowa State Cyclones at Texas Tech Red Raiders

Iowa State at Texas Tech -1.5 O/U 144
Recommendation: Under


On Saturday, we came in with a free play on Texas Tech-West Virginia under 143. It played out just as projected but double overtime kept us from cashing an easy ticket. At the end of regulation it was tied 64-64. And at the end of the first overtime it was tied 70-70. I'll attempt to win some of my money back today with another play on the Red Raiders under the total as they play host to Iowa State. The Big XII is very well respected this year but at 5-9 with four games to go, TTU has a lot more work to do. In the first meeting between these two teams in Ames, the Red Raiders were able to control the game and more importantly the pace for nearly a full 40 minutes. They led by as many as 14 in the second half but went cold late as Iowa State came from behind to win 63-56. It was ISU's slowest game of the season (61 possessions) and I think Tech will employ a similar type of approach tonight. First meeting closed 140.5 and not much of anything has changed. Feel like the importance of this one for the home side helps in keeping the pace and hopefully scoring lower than expected.

Texas Tech at West Virginia -11.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: Under


Texas Tech and West Virginia hook up for the second time after the Red Raiders won in Lubbock, 77-76 in overtime. Worth noting that even with the extra frame, TTU turned the ball over only 14 times and the game featured a relatively slow 70 possessions. Speaking of overtime, Huggy's bunch limps into this one after melting down in Lawrence. The Mountaineers were up 15 with three minutes to go and found a way to lose. Rather than focus on the three minutes of bad basketball, I came away impressed as WVU completely outplayed Kansas for nearly the entire game -- and did so too from start to finish in the first meeting. This is a good squad and one that is poised to come with a big effort today. Texas Tech has shown a very strong home/road dichotomy when it comes to scoring and pace. In six league road games, the Red Raiders are averaging only 63.1 ppg. Four of those six went under the total. And Tech's last three road games averaged only 123 points. First-year head coach Chris Beard is noted for playing it tight and controlling tempo. Also note that the Red Raiders are second in the Big XII Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: North Dakota Hawks at Idaho State Bengals

North Dakota -4.5 at Idaho State O/U 153.5
Recommendation: Over


While doing research on today's college basketball card, I came across an article on Idaho State and its struggles against North Dakota which was referred to as a "nightmare matchup." The results certainly bear that out as UND has won the last four matchups by scores of 89-64, 84-76, 76-60, and 84-49. Now, the spot for Hawks tonight is not a good one. They've won six of seven, just wrapped up a three-game homestand, and have a showdown at first place Weber State on Saturday. Bad matchup but less than ideal spot has me more interested in the total. Idaho State sports one of the worst defenses in the Big Sky as it allows 57.2 eFG% and 1.14 points per possession. And when asked to face the three top offenses in the league, each team essentially scored at will. Eastern Washington hung 92 points on 74 possessions. Weber State scored 85 and 96 on two 73-possession games. And as previously mentioned, North Dakota needed only 71 possession to net 89 points. It's mid-February, you are 3-9 in league play, and guaranteed a berth to the conference tournament...a defensive renaissance Read more
