College Basketball Betting Free Play: Syracuse Orange at Pittsburgh Panthers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Syracuse at Pittsburgh -2.5 O/U 125
Recommendation: Under


I don't think there is any debate that tonight's Syracuse-Pitt game is going to be slow. In ACC play, the Orange are averaging an incredibly low 55 possessions per game while Pitt isn't exactly pushing the tempo either at just over 61. In the first meeting, even with both squads scoring a point per possession and attempting 41 free throws, the game produced only 113 points. Typically when you get one "extreme" in the first meeting (slow pace, low scoring) teams make adjustments and the opposite takes place in the rematch. I'm not sure we see that tonight as both teams indicated it was likely to be another bloodbath. Obviously with a total this low crazy things can happen late to bust a play on the under. But I don't project more than 60 possessions and in this type of atmosphere, buckets will be at an absolute premium.

College Basketball Gambling: DePaul loses leading scorer Melvin

02.12.2014     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
DePaul announced that leading scorer Cleveland Melvin is no longer enrolled at school. Melvin was suspended two weeks ago for an undisclosed violation. Melvin was one of the few legitimate Big East caliber players Oliver Purnell was able to recruit and develop. The Blue Demons were 0-4 SU, 2-2 ATS without Melvin.


“I can't make any comments because of privacy acts and that kind of thing,” coach Oliver Purnell told WSCR-AM 670 on Monday night. “But the bottom line is he's no longer a part of our team and we've got to move on.”

Asked how his players handled the news, Purnell told the Score, “They reacted fine, they went out and practiced. I can't tell you how they reacted in their private moments ... but the guys who are here, on our team, are moving forward.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Utah State Aggies at Colorado State Rams

Utah State at Colorado State -4.5 O/U 134
Recommendation: Colorado State


Utah State’s next win and cover on the Mountain West highway will be their first.  The Aggies are 0-5 SU, 0-5 ATS in their first five conference road games, struggling in unfamiliar venues after rolling through the depleted WAC in recent years.

And the Aggies have gotten worse in recent road tilts, losing their last two contests by a combined 37 points at UNLV and Wyoming. Yes, Utah State snapped their five game skid with a 2-0 home stand, but their wins (Nevada and Boise) both came against slumping foes.

Colorado State certainly isn’t slumping right now – they’re coming into tonight’s game off two of their best efforts of the year, blowing out UNLV on this floor and beating Air Force by double digits in Colorado Springs.  The Rams have been taking care of business on their home floor – their only two losses in Ft Collins since November both came against Mountain West elites (San Diego State and New Mexico).  At 4-7 in conference play, Utah State is a long way from being an elite MWC squad.

Oklahoma State at Texas -4 O/U 145.5

Losers of four straight, Oklahoma State heads to Texas sans Marcus Smart who was suspended for three games. According to Sagarin, and with Texas' home court worth 4 points, the game is a pick 'em. Ken Pom has Texas -2. Both power ratings based on teams being at full strength. Keep in mind the Texas may be without Jonathan Holmes (13.1 ppg, 7.5 rpg). He had an MRI on his knee over the weekend and is listed as a game time decision.


“We have opportunities for players to step up,” Ford said. “This is going to give an opportunity for some of them who haven’t been playing quite as much to pick up the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Arkansas State Red Wolves

Western Kentucky at Arkansas State -3
Recommendation: Arkansas State


Despite the current six-game streak Western Kentucky is on, I prefer the short favorite in a second time around scenario where revenge is applicable. In the first meeting between these teams, Western connected on nine three pointers en-route to a hard fought double overtime 82-77 win as 5-point favorites. That push is obviously a bit misleading since ASU played the Hilltoppers even for 45 minutes on the road. The 27 points earned on three’s is a bit misleading as well since WKU hoisted 31 which resulted in 29% overall from beyond the arc. Where ASU was firmly beaten that night was on the boards as the Hilltoppers posted a 51-37, +14 rebounding edge. Combine that with the fatigue factor of having a shorter bench and the fouling out of starting F Kirk Van Slyke and you can conclude that Arkansas State just had nothing left at the end. Expect tonight to be a different story as the Red Wolves are well rested (haven’t played in a week) and they figure to have starting forward Kendrick Washington (56.2 FG%) back in the lineup (listed as probable). I’m somewhat skeptical Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: College Basketball Pointspread Underachievers

02.10.2014     07:56 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week I wrote about the four best pointspread teams in the country in college hoops this year – Cleveland State, Villanova, Wichita State and Utah. Between the four, they combined to go 7-1 ATS over the past week, continuing to cover spreads even after doing so consistently for the past three months. In other words, the markets still haven’t caught up with these teams.

This week, I’m taking the opposite approach; examining the very worst pointspread teams in all of college basketball. Why are they so bad against the spread? Will they continue to be money losers as February rolls into March? And what statistical profile do these teams have in common that will help us identify them as early as possible next year? Let’s take a look!

I did a version of this column last year at this same time (second week of February). At that time, the single worst pointspread team in all of college basketball was Indiana-Purdue Indianapolis, abbreviated IUPUI. This year, IUPUI isn’t the single worst pointspread team in college hoops only because they’re tied with South Alabama and LaSalle at the bottom of the ATS Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Creighton Bluejays at St. John's Red Storm

Creighton at St. John's +2.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: St. John's


After losing five straight games, including a pair of nail-biters at the end of the slump, St. John's has caught fire. Any opinions on the Steve Lavin era in Queens are incomplete, and, if he has it his way, those thoughts from the peanut gallery will be of a positive nature.

Lavin took over at UCLA for Jim Harrick after his drama led to his pre-Athens demise in 1996-97, leading the Bruins to five consecutive Sweet 16 appearances and six straight Tournament bids before the wheels came off in a disastrous 2002-2003 year that prompted his dismissal.

Lavin, a Gene Keady protégé who paid his dues at Purdue as an assistant from 1988-1991, is in his fourth season at St. John's. He took the Red Storm to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in a decade in his initial campaign in Queens. However, Lavin was diagnosed with prostate cancer the following year and missed most of the 2011-12 campaign, a season in which the Red Storm failed to qualify for the postseason.

Following an NIT bid last year, the pressure was on for the Johnnies coming into Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Northwestern Wildcats

Nebraska at Northwestern -2.5 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


It’s Saturday and that means another opportunity to bet Northwestern under the total. And the bonus is it got played up off of the opener of 117 to 119.5 which to me is crazy. Yes, we aren't getting the value of two weeks ago but based on the projected pace of this game, it'll take quit an effort by both squads – and some help from the refs and perhaps an overtime or two – to top 120 points. We know the Wildcats are super-slow and have played pretty good defense. And let's not forget; Northwestern is an amazing 5-5 in conference play so I doubt they would make dramatic changes mid-season. As for Nebraska, head coach Tim Miles seems to fully understand what is going to take place, "It’s going to be a slow game on Saturday,” Miles said. Well said, Tim. The Cornhuskers don't really have much of an identity – sometimes they play fast, other times they look to Read more
