College Basketball Handicapping: Quick hitters on Saturday's games

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are some quick hitters on this weekend's marquee college basketball matchups.

Utah at Arizona - After a home friendly schedule to start PAC-12 play, the Utes took care of business last night at Arizona State (76-59). Arizona rolled over an injury-riddled Colorado squad. The total for this one should come out somewhere in the mid-120's. It'll feature two of the top 10 defensive teams in the country in terms of efficiency. In the three other instances where they has happened this season we saw very limited scoring: Kentucky vs. Louisville (108 points), San Diego State vs. Utah (102 points), and Arizona vs. San Diego State (120 points).

Kansas at Iowa State - Would expect a lot of pace and scoring in this matchup based on last year's three meetings. The Jayhawks won both regular season meetings but the Cyclones got revenge in the Big XII Tournament. Those three contests averaged 152 possessions and 165 points. Oddsmakers have been adjusting high totals toward the under so expect this one to open around 146-147.

Ohio State at Iowa - The Hawkeyes finally got their offense going with 77 points last time Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Miami Hurricanes at Duke Blue Devils

Miami (FL) at Duke -15 O/U 141.5
Recommendation: Under


I mentioned on the podcast that this appears to be a good situation to step in and play the under. Unlike last year, Miami has more players and as a result has scored more and at times play a faster tempo. But Jim Larranaga is a smart coach and knows that trading baskets on the road vs. Duke is not a recipe for success. And let's not forget that the Hurricanes are still fairly slow, ranking 279th in terms of adjusted tempo. Duke meanwhile should be sitting on a pretty good defensive effort. Last time out they allowed 87 to NC State and watched the Wolf Pack hit a ridiculous 10-of-16 from three. Does that mean Duke is a bad defensive team? No. They're not great but in their previous six games vs. top 100 teams, the held the opposition to 63 ppg. And at home off of that showing, you can bet Coach K emphasized plenty of defenses in practice the last two days. Adding to it is that the Hurricanes aren't a great offensive team. They scored only 99 points combined in home losses to Green Bay and Eastern Kentucky and will likely struggle to top 60 points in this affair as we look to play it under the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: California Golden Bears at UCLA Bruins

California +7 at UCLA O/U 135
Recommendation: California


Classic "bounce" game as California, off a dismal showing vs. USC, heads to UCLA, who snapped a five-game losing streak with a double OT win over Stanford. The Golden Bears have really struggled to score without Jabari Bird who remains out with a foot injury. But lost in all of the talk about UCLA's offensive struggles is that their defense isn't very good. The Cardinal spent 35 minutes getting open look after open look but not before they got passive late and allowed the Bruins to sneak back into the game. And it wasn't just Stanford; multiple teams, both high quality and mediocre, have been able to successfully attack and score on UCLA's soft defense. Ultimately this comes down to a question of why are the Bruins laying this type of price against comparable competition? This is a very young team who may be without a full-strength Norman Powell, one of the few veterans on the squad. No question Cal hasn't played great basketball but having off since Wednesday should put them in position for a better showing. Enough to stick around until the end.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri Tigers at Auburn Tigers

Missouri +6 at Auburn
Recommendation: Missouri


I've watched Missouri a number of times this season and they've without question steadily improved. It comes from adjusting to first-year head coach Kim Anderson as well as facing an incredibly challenging schedule. Early in the season, the Tigers lost to Missouri-Kansas City and were blown out by Arizona, Purdue, Oklahoma, and Xavier. Then they played rival Illinois to the wire and did the same in an OT loss vs. Oklahoma State. Last time out, they got past a quality LSU squad in overtime. I also noticed the rise in post play with Keanau Post (12 points, all dunks vs. LSU) inserted into the rotation. Coupled with Jonathan Williams, the Tigers now are able to create spacing and thus open up the perimeter. Meanwhile Auburn, like Missouri, is in a bit of rebuilding mode. They have a few nice pieces and have shown capable with a home win over Xavier. The problem is this team still has a little bit of last year's stink on it. Meaning, they aren't very polished, and are prone to bad stretches of play, particularly against comparable competition. The talent level for both squads is very even and I don't see Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Colorado Buffaloes at Utah Utes

Colorado at Utah -11 O/U 124.5
Recommendation: Under


Colorado likely to find it tough to score tonight as it heads to Utah. The Buffaloes are at times a one-man show with Askia Booker the only player capable of scoring on his own. As a result, and as we've seen multiple times, I expect the Buffaloes to revert back to their pass-happy methodical ways in hopes of staying within reach of the Utes. Utah's offense looks impressive and is above average but Colorado marks a decent step up in class compared to USC and UCLA. Against better competition, the Utes netted 49 vs. San Diego State, 60 vs. Wichita, and 60 vs. Kansas. Ultimately this comes down to Utah's defense which has been outstanding. They've allowed over a point per possession only three times all season and do an excellent job at taking away the opposition's offensive strengths. Neither team plays at a particularly quick pace which has us on market fade alert as we play the under.

College Basketball Handicapping: What to do with UCLA moving forward

So if you haven't already noticed, UCLA is really bad. Or at least that's how they've been playing the last three weeks. They can't win, can't cover, and have been an under bettor's dream because they can't score despite playing at a fast clip. Look, as of now, unless I come across a great piece of information, playing a conference game over the total just isn't in the cards. However, knowing the natural ebb and flow of a season, I can tell you that the Bruins are at some point going to cash in on some overs.

For starters, four of their last five games were on the road and all but one opponent (Alabama) was what I would consider to be defensively elite. Some of the blame can no question be placed on the offense which has little to no room for growth if Bryce Alford remains the team's top scoring option. Adding to it is that they don't have a true point guard nor any pop off the bench. Pretty bleak, right? But when you step back and look at the bigger picture I see potential -- and by potential I mean "overs."

Of UCLA's seven losses, all but one was on the road and the lone home game, sure enough, went flying over the total with 160 points. And the one Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at TCU Horned Frogs

West Virginia -2.5 at TCU O/U 131
Recommendation: Under


West Virginia has had a pretty easy go of it thus far playing home/neutral games against mostly lesser competition. And you can't go anywhere without hearing about the ridiculous amount of turnovers the Mountaineers are forcing (32.5%). Those turnovers have managed to offset what is once again a below average shooting team. My question is what happens to WVU's vaunted offense if the opposition can hold on to the basketball and not get baited into an up-and-down, chaotic affair? TCU may be that team as the Horned Frogs prefer to play a methodical, half court game under the leadership of veteran point guard Kyan Anderson. Admittedly, TCU has played practically no one so we can't get too excited about the 13-0 start. But what I look at is the scores of games vs. Mississippi State and Ole Miss. Both failed to top 120 points and 125 possessions. That is the type of game TCU wants to play and for the first time in Trent Johnson's tenure, they actually have the players to execute it on a consistent basis as oppose to last season when many of their games got out of hand because of the large margins.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Tennessee State Tigers at Tennessee Volunteers

Tennessee State at Tennessee -21.5 O/U 127
Recommendation: Under


Despite the coaching change from Cuonzo Martin to Donnie Tyndall, the Vols really haven't changed much with a vast majority of their games of the slow paced, low scoring variety. With the exception of their contest at NC State that went wild the last 10 minutes (58 points), UT's recent game scores have been 126, 129, 122, 119, and 118. Tennessee should have no trouble keeping Tennessee State under wraps offensively. The Tigers are in complete rebuilding mode and feature a roster with little to do DI experience. Against DI foes, they've notched north of 60 points only twice. And when asked to step up in class they scored a combined 82 points vs. Vanderbilt and Virginia with both games going under today's posted total. The concern here is if the home side goes wild and the second half turns into a pick-up game. The Vols however have yet to show the ability to score at will with their biggest win of the season coming by 12 points. On Monday we saw them grind out a 64-54 win vs. Mercer. I look for a similar output this evening.
