College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri State Bears at Southeast Missouri Redhawks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Missouri State -9 at Southeast Missouri O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Over


Southeast Missouri is your typical up-tempo, no defense low mid-major. The Redhawks appear a bit improved over last season's 5-24 disaster with three wins already over DI competition. Of 2015's 27 games against DI teams, on only seven occasions did SEMO net better than a point per possession. This season, they've done in four times and have a shot to do it again on their home floor this evening. Missouri State is another team that looks much improved on the offensive end. They hung 96 against Alabama A&M and 91 against Jacksonville State to kick off the season. Not exactly stiff competition but SEMO isn't either as the Redhawks rank near the bottom nationally in a number of defensive categories. The Bears saw more resistance in their last three games against DePaul, North Dakota State and Air Force but still averaged a respectable 67.7 ppg with all three games at 68 possessions or less. There's also an injury to be aware with Missouri State's Obediah Church unlikely to play due to an bum knee. He's a strong "under" player with limited offensive ability and a big Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas Longhorns at Michigan Wolverines

Texas at Michigan -11 O/U 130
Recommendation: Michigan


Not an ideal matchup for the Texas Longhorns as they travel to Ann Arbor to face Michigan tonight. These two squads hooked up last season in the Bahamas with the Wolverines winning 78-72. UT's starting lineup in the game featured four seniors and junior -- all of which are no longer on the team. This year's edition is littered with underclassmen who will likely struggle against Michigan's methodical brand of basketball. We've already witnessed multiple instances of UT's youth being exposed. Against veteran and fundamentally sound teams Northwestern, Colorado, and UT-Arlington, the Longhorns lost by margins of 19, 14, and 11. Those three squads, who aren't overly athletic, outrebounded Texas by a combined margin of 122-98. Texas fired back last Friday with a 77-68 win over Alabama; a game that was deadlocked heading into the final five minutes before UT pulled away. With such a young squad, one that has struggled on the offensive end (27% 3-pt, 65% FT), forcing turnovers and thus creating high percentage looks would go a long way. In those four games, the turnover battle was nearly dead even. Now Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Oregon State Beavers at Mississippi State Bulldogs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oregon State at Mississippi State -8 O/U 130.5
Recommendation: Under


Points could be at a premium tonight in Starkville as Oregon State and Mississippi State will each be without their top offensive weapons. Tres Tinkle is the only player on the Beavers with an offensive rating north of 100. He's out indefinitely with a wrist injury. Even with Tinkle on the floor, OSU's offense has been a mess with one of the nation's highest turnover rates (25.8%), lowest three-point percentages (26.4%), and less than a point per possession despite an ultra-soft schedule. Center Drew Eubanks now becomes Oregon State's top option as evident by the 21 shots he took in Monday's win over NAIA Southern Oregon. Two years ago, Oregon State was able to compete by slowing down the tempo and playing various zone defenses. I expect that head coach Wayne Tinkle will attempt to shorten games moving forward due to the lack of weapons and experience. Mississippi State played a bunch of high scoring affairs early on thanks to Quinndary Weatherspoon's 18.8 ppg. He's missed the last two games and the Bulldogs netted only 73 points on 74 possessions vs. Lehigh and 65 points on 66 Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: North Carolina Tar Heels at Indiana Hoosiers

North Carolina at Indiana +4 O/U 163
Recommendation: Indiana


With James Blackmon upgraded to probable and NCAA Tournament revenge in effect, I'll take a look at supporting Indiana as a home underdog against North Carolina this evening. The Hoosiers aren't without deficiencies, most notably on the defensive end. A big key to tonight's game is how Indiana handles UNC on the interior. If Thomas Bryant gets into foul trouble, it really puts pressure on the Hoosiers' offense to perform at an ultra-high level. North Carolina looked impressive in its run to the Maui Invitational title. They however had a rather easy path by drawing Chaminade in the first round, and undersized Oklahoma State team in the semifinals and offensively challenged Wisconsin in the title game. Loaded with athletes and depth (no player is currently averaging more than 30 minutes per game) it was the perfect set up and they obviously took advantage. Now, UNC must go on the road to face a top-tier offense at a very tough venue. Last season, in their only two non-conference road games, North Carolina lost outright to Northern Iowa and Texas. In last year's tournament, the Tar Heels Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Muray State Racers at Southern Illinois Salukis

Murray State at Southern Illinois -3 O/U 146.5
Recommendation: Over


Two years ago, Murray State boasted one of most efficient offenses in the country thanks to a host of veterans and point guard Cameron Payne who is currently in the NBA. The Racers played an up-tempo game and routinely produced 80+ points against comparable competition. Following the departure of the aforementioned talent and head coach Steve Prohm, Murray suffered through a rebuilding year where they finished 17-14. New head coach Matt McMahon was forced to adjust the team's philosophers, most notably a much slower offense. Through six games, it looks as if the Racers have returned to a faster brand of basketball as their offensive possessions are over two seconds faster compared to last season. It's resulted in a number of high scoring games: 143, 168, 170, 159, 155, and 145. Southern Illinois head coach Barry Hinson has been vocal about his guard-heavy team playing at a faster clip this season. The Salukis ran up and down against Wright State, Arkansas, and SIU Edwardsville but head into tonight have played back-to-back lower scoring games against Mount St. Mary's and Minnesota.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas A&M Aggies vs. Virginia Tech Hokies

Texas A&M vs. Virginia Tech +2.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Texas A&M lost a ton of experience from last year's group that won 28 games and reached the Sweet Sixteen. It was one of the most "together" teams in the country last year with clearly defined roles throughout the roster. This year's group has talent and the one constant under head coach Billy Kennedy is defense so I'm not expecting 2016-17 to be a total rebuild job. But there are going to be bumps in the road and we saw it first hand in A&M's recent home loss to USC in which they coughed up a lead late and lost 65-63. Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams did a masterful job last season as he took an ultra-young roster and produced 20 wins and a 10-8 record in ACC play. He was forced to play a number of kids who weren't ready to compete at such a high level but much of that group is back. Now you have a coach who is noted for getting kids to buy in and play hard in his second season. The Hokies' talent was on full display yesterday as they hung 92 points in a blowout win over New Mexico. It's a pretty big step up in class tonight as the Aggies will mark Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: San Francisco Dons at UC Santa Barbara Gauchos

San Francisco at UC Santa Barbara -8.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: Under


San Francisco first-year head coach Kyle Smith, who came over from Columbia, vowed to shore up the Dons' defense and play a more control brand of basketball. That didn't exactly play out in their first game as a wave of early hot shooting led to a fast-paced 82-80 win over run-and-gun UIC. Far different opponent for USF tonight as its travels to UC Santa Barbara. Under longtime head coach Bob Williams, the Gauchos have consistently been one of the better defensive and slower teams in the Big West. In their first game, UCSB suffered a 74-60 loss to up-tempo Nebraska-Omaha. Netting only 60 points on your home floor in perhaps a bit alarming considering Omaha coughed up 80+ against USC and Kansas State. Last season, these two teams hooked up for a slow paced (62 possession) 68-61 game. That was with Rex Walters at the helm for USF; a coach whose teams generally play fast. And the total in that game closed 140.5. As mentioned, Smith's Columbia teams were among the slowest in the country. Some of that had to do with playing in the Ivy League but even in non-conference play, the Lions Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Miami-Ohio RedHawks at Wright State Raiders

Miami-Ohio at Wright State -8 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Wright State


In four seasons at Miami of Ohio, John Cooper has yet to produce a winning record in MAC play. In fact, they are 20 games under .500 during that span. This year projects to be another struggle as the RedHawks have no scholarship seniors and must rely on a bevy of newcomers and underclassmen. "Fresh starts" aren’t necessarily a bad thing for a struggling program but the reality is, Miami has little to no pedigree when it comes to recruiting quality talent. Wright State does have a solid pedigree with 10-6, 10-6 and 13-5 records inside the Horizon in three out of the last four years. They suffered a hiccup in 2015 (11-20, 3-13) but bounced back strong last season with 22 wins. This past offseason head coach Billy Donlon was mysteriously fired which opened the door for longtime South Dakota State coach Scott Nagy. Nagy had some great teams including last year's group that took Maryland to the wire in the NCAA Tournament. Donlon's firing was odd but the university got a good one in Nagy. The Raiders opened the season with an impressive road victory at Southern Illinois. Read more
