College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Boston College Eagles at Virginia Cavaliers

Boston College at Virginia -24 O/U 123.5
Recommendation: Under


The 9th ranked Virginia Cavaliers welcome the last place Boston College Eagles to Charlottesville tonight in what projects to be one of the more lopsided matchups of the year in ACC conference play. Tonight’s matchup pins a top-tier defense vs. an inept offense that statistically is among the worst offenses in the nation. The Cavaliers are on a four-game winning streak thanks to a return to the defensive form that's been a staple throughout Tony Bennett's tenure. "I think defense is a hard one to figure out for us. It just takes such a commitment to it. We've had a lot of teaching moments because of the defense this year to be honest." Virginia is still stingy at home where it's 10-0 and allowing 60 points per contest. That does not bode well for Boston College (7-14, 0-8) who has failed to score more than 64 or shoot better than 46.9% while losing all its ACC games by an average of 21 points. The Eagles' closest margin of defeat in the league came in a 72-62 loss to Florida State last Tuesday. The Eagles have averaged over 70 possessions their last three games vs. teams Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Big East home courts amongst weakest in the country

02.03.2016     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
On yesterday's Sportsmemo Podcast we spoke about the overall balance of the Big East as well as the lack of home court strength. On the season, Big East home teams are 21-26 SU -- the second lowest winning percentage of any conference in the country. The posterchild for this dichotomy has been the Providence Friars who have three Big East home losses (Marquette, Seton Hall, and Xavier) and four impressive road victories (Creighton, Butler, Villanova, and Georgetown). The results thus far are probably an outlier as home teams won at a 60% clip the previous two seasons. Three Big East games on the docket for tonight: St. John's at Xavier (-22), Creighton at Villanova (-12), and Marquette at Seton Hall (-7.5).


"It's been an unusual year in college basketball overall. Traditional theories don't seem to be holding true this season, so I guess it stands to reason that the home court hasn't been such a home-court advantage for pretty much everyone in our conference."

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Austin Peay Governors at Southeast Missouri RedHawks

Austin Peay -6 at Southeast Missouri State O/U 142
Recommendation: Under


Southeast Missouri first-year head coach Rick Ray has been through a lot this season. The RedHawks opened 0-10 and then 0-6 in OVC play. He's had to kick a few guys off the team and experiment both offensively and defensively in order to give his kids a chance to compete. Something appears to have clicked as Ray has his squad back to playing man-to-man defense and it's resulted in three straight wins and 61, 60 (OT), and 51 points allowed. The competition of a D2 and two lower-tier OVC squads helped, but it's a lot better than their four previous games in which they allowed 87.3 ppg and were blown out each time. Austin Peay classifies as lower-tier OVC with a 2-6 conference record and the 11th-ranked offensive efficiency. The Governors do defend a little as they held the two best offenses in the OVC, Tennessee Tech and Belmont, to 72 and 76 respectively. That suggests APSU should be able to handle a SEMO offense that ranks 341 nationally in offensive efficiency. In the end, if SEMO plays close to the type of defense it has in its last three games vs. its season-long numbers, Read more

Oregon at Arizona -7.5 O/U 150.5
Recommendation: Arizona


Oregon and Arizona will do battle in Tucson tonight in a key PAC-12 clash. Oregon is 5-2 in PAC-12 play and tied with Washington for top spot in the conference while Arizona is just 4-3 inside the conference so the Wildcats will be looking to draw even with the Ducks in the PAC-12 standings. Oregon enters this game off back-to-back impressive home wins against USC and UCLA but they have not been as strong away from Eugene with a 1-3 SU record. The Ducks have been known to have excellent guard play for years under Dana Altman but this year, they boast a very imposing frontcourt with the likes of Dillon Brooks, Elgin Cook, Jordan Bell and Chris Boucher. That strength inside though will be tested and even negated to a large extent by Arizona which has had plenty of quality low post players with Kaleb Tarczewski, Ryan Anderson and Mark Tollefsen averaging a collective 34.2 points and 21.8 rebounds per game. Arizona has been able to survive and fight through some personnel depletion with shooting guard Elliott Pitts having missed the last five games (3-2 SU/ATS during that span) due to a personal Read more

Texas A&M -3 at Arkansas O/U 150.5
Recommendation: Texas A&M


Riding one of the country’s longest winning streaks, the 5th ranked Texas A&M Aggies looks for their 11th consecutive victory tonight against Arkansas at Bud Walton Arena. This is a matchup of two teams headed in opposite directions. Mike Anderson’s Razorbacks have lost three straight SEC games and continue to go through the growing pains of a completely rebuilt roster. “I just think our inexperience really comes to the forefront at the wrong time,” Anderson said.  The Hogs are going to be up against it tonight as A&M has emerged as the class of the SEC with the No. 2 offense and No. 1 defense in league play. The Aggies handed out a 23-point beat down on Arkansas earlier this month. Jalen Jones scored a game-high 28 points and was one of five Texas A&M players in double figures. The Aggies also made 11 3-pointers -- something Arkansas has struggled with this season -- and led by 21 at halftime. It’s also worth noting A&M turned it over only 10 times in a 75 possession game. The Aggies are tops in the league in lowest turnover rate Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Wisconsin uses free throws as new offensive weapon

01.26.2016     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wisconsin has never been a team that gets to the free throw line in large chunks because the offense is predicated on three-pointers and open jump shots. This year's squad however doesn't feature a lot of high percentage offensive players so they've struggled at times to score. Of late, interim head coach Greg Gard has urged his team to be more aggressive in terms of attacking the paint with the hopes of getting fouled. Wisky attempted only 70 free throws its first five league games but shot 71 in recent win and covers over Michigan State and Penn State. The Badgers play host to Indiana tonight. In the first meeting, UW shot 23 free throws to IU's 10 and easily covered in a 59-58 loss in Bloomington.

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Boise State Broncos at Wyoming Cowboys

Boise State -7 at Wyoming O/U 135.5
Recommendation: Under


There aren't many players as important to their team as Wyoming's Josh Adams who will sit tonight's game against Boise State due to a suspension. Adams is currently fifth in the country in percentage of possessions used (36%) and seventh in percentage of team shots (35%). And he's gotten to the free throw line 172 times. They next closest Cowboy has taken only 64. So here we have a team that plays slow and struggles to score playing without its best offensive weapon who happens to be the only senior on one of the youngest teams in the country. I'm a believer in the "step up" mentality of a team playing its first game after losing a key player but there is no question the Pokes' offense will suffer without him. Boise State comes in with some really good offensive numbers but they've yet to play some of the stronger defensive teams in the MWC including Wyoming who ranks third in defensive efficiency. The Broncos have yet to face New Mexico (5th) and UNLV (2nd) and were held to 53 on their home floor against San Diego State. Without Adams look for Wyoming to rely on its defense and to Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Calipari says refs are no longer calling enough fouls

01.21.2016     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Kentucky head coach John Calipari, the referees have reverted back to allowing too much physical play. This theory comes on the heels of UK's 75-70 loss at Auburn in which the Cats committed 25 fouls while the Tigers committed only 13. Auburn also nearly doubled up Kentucky from the line with 31 attempts to only 18. In five SEC games, Kentucky has committed 119 fouls vs. only 93 from the opposition. SEC foes have also shot 130 free throws to Kentucky's 111. That's a far cry from last season when UK shot on average seven more free throws per game that its opponents.


“We gotta go back to football practice,” Calipari said. “All this stuff about rules, like we’re not going to put hands on, not going to hip check – it’s done. They clearly didn’t have the stomach to continue it, so we’re just going to go back to like I did in 2013, where we just said, ‘Put on the football helmets and let’s go.’

Nebraska at Michigan State -14.5 O/U 142
Recommendation: Under


Two teams heading in opposite directions will meet tonight in East Lansing. The visiting Cornhuskers come in on a three-game winning streak to face the Spartans who are on a two-game losing skid. Michigan State was overpowered by up-and-coming Iowa last Thursday and then lost a heartbreaker on the road in Madison. More important is that MSU lost the leader of their team in starting point guard Tum Tum Nairn who is prized by head coach Tom Izzo for pushing the pace on offense. Izzo said he didn't know when Nairn would be back but would not play against Nebraska. Michigan State ranks 39th in the nation in defensive adjusted efficiency which is a step up in class from what Nebraska has faced to this point this year with an opponent’s defensive efficiency ranking of 181st. This combined with the fact that Nairn is out should mean a different offensive philosophy for the Spartans the next couple games: “The guy does a lot for us,” Izzo said. “He’s one of those guys that the players appreciate and so that was a big loss for us. We think we could have ran them. Read more

UCLA at Oregon State -2.5 O/U 145
Recommendation: Under


UCLA's schedule through 18 games has been littered with teams that prefer to play with pace or can score at an efficient rate or a combination of both. On the season, the Bruins have faced the 8th toughest schedule in terms of opponent's offensive efficiency. I won't try to portray the Bruins as a good defensive team but tonight should serve as a step down in class as Oregon State's offense has struggled to score at times. And from a situational angle, you would expect both teams to bring effort on the defensive end with this being a very important game as they sit 2-3 in league play. UCLA's Bryce Alford on his team's defense of late: "We go a couple possessions in a row, or even a couple games in a row, where we play pretty decent defense," guard Bryce Alford said. "And then all of a sudden, I don't know what it is, but all of a sudden you have a lot of shutdowns, a lot of places where you break down. And you can't have that." UCLA isn't going to turn into a lock down unit overnight but again, the PAC-12 schedule hasn't been friendly with the Bruins yet to play Cal, Read more
