College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at Iowa State Cyclones

West Virginia at Iowa State -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Under

They'll no doubt be a lot of pace and points in this afternoon's West Virginia-Iowa State game but oddsmakers aren't messing around by opening this game 160. It's since been bet down slightly to 158.5 but I see a few factors that make playing the under worth a bet. For starters, Iowa State talked all week about shoring up its leaky defense. That doesn't mean they're going to start holding teams in the 60's as their games are way too fast for that. But at home off of allowing 94 points to Oklahoma, I expect a much better effort. Next, West Virginia doesn't have a very efficient offense. In fact, the Mountaineers are averaging less than a point per possession in Big XII play. And it's important to note that not one WVU Big XII game has topped 158 in regulation. In the first meeting between these two squads there was a fair amount of pace (144 possession) and points 146 but it went under the closing total of 150. Neither team has changed much of all since that game back in mid-January and yet today's total is eight points higher. In order for this game to go over the total you'll need close Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Michigan Wolverines at Illinois Fighting Illini

Michigan at Illinois -6.5 O/U 121
Recommendation: Illinois

Michigan is an injury riddled mess right now; a team that I’m looking to bet against in hostile environments both tonight and moving forward.  The Wolverines are coming off another tight, deflating loss at Indiana over the weekend, their fourth defeat in the last five games.  Two of those losses (Michigan State and Wisconsin) were overtime affairs.  And it’s not going to get any easier for John Beilein’s squad tonight as they travel to Assembly Hall in Champaign to take on the Illini.

Michigan’s injury woes are getting worse, not better.  Four of their five starters played at least 34 minutes at Indiana, and at least part of the reason why the Wolverines have been struggling so much in close games is because they are short-handed, running out of gas in the latter stages of tight contests.  Let’s not forget that this team lost FIVE underclassmen to the NBA over the last three drafts.  Last month, star guard and leading scorer Caris LeVert was lost to a season ending foot injury.  Since then, they’ve lost third Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Long Beach State 49ers at UC Irvine Anteaters

Long Beach State -1 at UC Irvine
Recommendation: Long Beach State

Heartbreaking home setback to Cal-Irvine last Saturday night figures to have Long Beach more than ready to get back in the win column here. The 49ers were up 55-54 and 10 seconds from being tied for first place in the Big West after sinking a three pointer but a UCI layup with 1.4 left in the game put them in a 7-2 tie for second place. Conversely, Santa Barbara rode a miraculous late second half surge to defeat Hawaii five days ago breaking a two-game losing streak. Despite the win, UCSB continued to show how vulnerable they are without star PF Alan Williams who has missed the last five games but is nearing a return to the lineup. Even if Williams should go here in this contest, have to note the fact that the Gauchos were pummeled by Long Beach 69-53 with him playing 27 minutes (17 points, 9 rebounds) back on January 17. In that contest, the 49ers defense swarmed Santa Barbara allowing just 25% FG shooting and they also had a solid 47-35 rebounding advantage. The Gauchos strengths of rebounding and defense are equaled by Long Beach State which makes this a tough matchup for the hosts Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Colorado not there mentally

02.12.2015     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Things are getting messy in Boulder with rumblings Colorado has "checked out" on the season. Injuries have killed this squad with Xavier Johnson and Josh Scott missing time. Point guard Askia Booker is also dealing with hip problems. Tad Boyle claims the locker room is fine but the play on the court remains suspect. Last time out, the Buffs were waxed at home by Utah, 79-51.

"We looked checked out," sophomore forward Wesley Gordon said. "I understand them saying we looked checked out. But, I don't think we're checked out. We can't be checked out; we've still got games left.

"We just can't give up and play like we did (Saturday). That was embarrassing. That was very embarrassing."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Tennessee Volunteers at Vanderbilt Commodores

Tennessee +6 at Vanderbilt O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Tennessee

Recent results suggest that Tennessee and Vanderbilt are headed in opposite directions but the reality is these two teams have played a lot of close, competitive basketball where the straight up results appear to be more random than anything. The Commodores enter off back-to-back wins, including a blowout over a wounded South Carolina squad. The Vols meanwhile have lost four of five but those defeats came by margins of 6, 5, 5, and 3. I'd be concerned if this team was getting outplayed but the level of effort is still there night in and night out, they just happen to come out on the losing end. Make no mistake, this team has flaws, particularly on offense but the current price indicates that Vandy is the better of the two squads which I'm not sure is the case. Consider this: Vanderbilt was laying -3 vs. South Carolina this past weekend and now -6 vs. Tennessee. The Gamecocks are for whatever reason still "respected" due to non-conference wins over Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Tennessee is void of any marquee wins but unlike USC, the Vols show up each and every night and have a Read more

College Basketball Betting Alert: Huge steam has Georgetown -3 at Seton Hall

02.10.2015     02:07 PM     Printer Friendly
This is a pretty big line move for a February power conference game, no? No documented injuries or suspensions either. Seton Hall opened -1.5 with Georgetown now a 3-point favorite. Ken Pom has the Pirates -1 while Sagarin shows a pick 'em when accounting for a normal 3-point home court advantage.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Xavier Musketeers at Marquette Golden Eagles

Xavier -3 at Marquette O/U 137
Recommendation: Under 

Xavier has been one of the tougher teams in the country to handicap from a totals perspective. The pace of their games is typically fairly quick but their offense and defense comes and goes on a weekly basis. Tonight, they head to Marquette for a critical game as the Musketeers sit 15-9 and 6-6 in Big East play. The Golden Eagles meanwhile continue to fight despite being short on depth and talent. They've lost five Big East games that came down to the final two minutes of play. Veteran guard Matt Carlino missed Marquette's last game and while they managed to win at Seton Hall, the team shot 1-of-10 from three and netted only 57 points. Carlino (concussion) is questionable tonight and if he is ruled out, expect the market to knock this total down a point or two. But even if he does suit up, Marquette is far more comfortable grinding out games and trying to keep things close. They simply can't match Xavier from an offensive perspective if this game is played in transition. I think the first meeting is very indicative of what we'll see tonight: 124 possessions and 120 points -- and that was Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Nebraska desperate to find offense

02.10.2015     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Listening to Nebraska head coach Tim Miles talk about his team's offensive woes is pretty entertaining. The Cornhuskers have failed to top 45 points in thee of their last four games but yet inexplicably popped for 76 and 79 against Northwestern and Michigan State. They'll likely need north of 60 tonight as they play host to the nation's most efficient offense. Wisconsin is averaging an unreal 1.27 points per possession in Big Ten play. To put that number in perspective, that's 76 points on 60 possessions. Wisconsin however doesn't have the strongest of defenses. They currently rank 10th in the Big Ten in defensive efficiency (1.04 ppp allowed).  

 “We’re not even running to our stuff and getting to our spots and making hard cuts and running sharply in screens. Now we’ve lost that, and you’ve really lost a chance to be a good offensive team,” Miles said. 
 “You have to run with pace. You have to have an

College Basketball Betting Free Play: USC Trojans at Stanford Cardinal

USC at Stanford -14 O/U 147
Recommendation: Under

Market seems to have created an opportunity by betting USC-Stanford four points over the total. I can understand the thought behind it with USC's willing to play fast and Stanford's offensive prowess and lackluster defense of late. But the situation suggests this won't be a pick-up game. The Cardinals have lost back-to-back games and with the dreaded "elevation" road trip upcoming, this becomes an absolute must-win. The first meeting was a perfect offensive storm with a lot of pace (146 possessions), threes (15), and turnovers (28). The end result was 154 points. But note that the closing total in that contest was 132. Less than a month later it's 15 points higher leaving little to no margin for error. In the end, USC's below average offensive efficiency, Stanford's expected focus/energy level, and a potential double-digit margin late make a play on the under worthy of a wager.
