College Basketball Handicapping: Bettors gear up for mid-major conference tournaments Part II

03.02.2017     09:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
More mid-major conferences get their respective tournament underway today and tomorrow. Let's take a look at some of their futures odds courtesy of 5Dimes.

Horizon - For the second straight year, the tournament will be held at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit. Note that the format has changed as the top two seeds no longer get the "double bye" into the semifinals. Valparaiso (+160) and Oakland (+170) are the top seeds and betting favorites. Last year's winner, Green Bay, is +500.

Colonial - Same format as Horizon with 7/10 and 8/9 play-in games and byes for seeds 1-6. UNC-Wilmington is the top seed and favorite at +160 followed by Charleston at +175. The entire tournament takes place in Charleston.

West Coast - No surprise that Gonzaga in the heavy favorite at -400. Second seed St. Mary's is +340. The entire tournament will be played as Las Vegas' Orleans Arena. It's been held there every year since 2009.

MAAC - Monmouth, who hasn't lost a game since Jan. 2, is the top seed and favorite at +135. Siena (+340), St. Peter's (+365) and Iona (+440) are the main contenders. Tournament takes place in Albany at Siena's home gym. Read more

College Basketball Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Fresno State Bulldogs at Boise State Broncos

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Fresno State +4.5 at Boise State O/U 147
Recommendation: Fresno State


Entirely different betting directions being taken by these teams as Fresno State is on a 3-0 ATS and 4-0 O/U run while Boise has current streaks of 0-6 ATS and 4-0 O/U. The conflicting trends combined with the earlier 89-80 Fresno win way back on January 14 give no immediate handicapping edge to a certain side or total. However, there are some additional technical trends that directly point to the visiting Bulldogs here. The strongest are Boise’s 0-6 ATS mark in its last six home games and 0-5 record as a favorite since January 25. Fresno meanwhile has gone 6-3 ATS as a road underdog and the underdog in this series is 7-3 over the last 10 meetings. 

The fundamentals are close but Fresno does have a distinct advantage on the defensive glass while Boise is the better three point shooting team. In the first game, Fresno had six double digit scorers, shot 22/38/57.9% from two-point range and went to the free throw line 43 times (+13 attempts, +11 points). Boise on the other hand shot nearly 50% of their field goal attempts (31 of 63) from Read more

College Basketball Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Oklahoma State Cowboys at Iowa State Cyclones

Oklahoma State at Iowa State -3 O/U 162.5
Recommendation: Under


We're in the dog days of power conference play with many teams wrapping up the regular season this weekend. That of course means a lot of second meetings and plenty of familiarity. Iowa State and Oklahoma State last saw one another back in mid-January with the Cyclones winning a high scoring affair, 96-86 in Stillwater. While ISU hasn't changed its stripes much that same cannot be said for the Cowboys who completely overhauled their defensive philosophy. Rather than run up and down and press, OSU is playing a much more controlled brand of basketball. They've ditched the high-pressure defense and instead focused on containment. It's paid off in a big way as Oklahoma State has won 10 of 11 with seven of those games going under the total. This has also led to a slower pace with seven of those games failing to top 70 possessions. If tonight's game hovers around that 70-possession mark there's a good chance we can cash in on the under. Note that the first meeting closed 158.5 and that was with Oklahoma State playing crazy fast and next to no defense.

College Basketball Handicapping: Bettors gear up for mid-major conference tournaments

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Conference tournaments are officially underway which means plenty of betting opportunities including those in the futures market. Let's take a look at a few conferences and their odds to earn a berth in the Big Dance.

Bucknell plays in the "non-boarded" Patriot League and is nearly a -200 favorite to cut down the nets. Note that Bison rank 80th according to Ken Pom; a spot below Monmouth and four spots ahead of Belmont -- two very well regarded mid-majors. Don't sleep on second seed Lehigh (+280) who swept Bucknell by 11 and 8 points during the regular season.

Winthrop (-120) is a short favorite over UNC Asheville (+125) to win the Big South. The two teams split during the regular season with both games decided by three points. Note that after the first round, all games will be played at Winthrop.

Belmont (-170) is yet again the favorite to win the Ohio Valley Conference Tournament which is played in the Bruins' hometown of Nashville. Belmont finished first in the OVC in both offensive and defensive efficiency and lost only one regular season game. Of their 15 league wins, only four were decided by single digits.

College Basketball Betting: Virginia a rare home underdog to North Carolina

02.27.2017     09:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a long time since Virginia was a home underdog like it is tonight against North Carolina. The Cavaliers were last catching points on their home court back in 2012 when the Tar Heels were laying -3.5 and won 54-51. But it looks as if the betting markets are starting to sour on this squad after losing four of five including a 65-41 blowout loss at UNC back on Feb. 18. The normally efficient Cavs have really struggled to score of late; 0.92 points per possession over their last five games. UNC opened -1.5 but has since been bet up to -3.5.

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
