College Basketball Betting Free Play: Creighton Bluejays vs. DePaul Blue Demons

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Creighton -3.5 vs. DePaul O/U 135
Recommendation: Creighton


Near impossible to make a case for the Blue Demons right now as their play down the stretch led to an 0-7 straight up mark and a 1-4 ATS record in their final five games. The root cause of this spiral has been the offensive demise of top scorer Billy Garrett Jr. who has scored 8, 8, 7, and 2 points over his last four games while going 9-of-36, 25% from the field and 1-of-14, 7% from 3-point range. The potential loss of sophomore starting C Tommy Hamilton IV for this contest is also a concern. Without him and his 10 ppg and 5.2 rpg, DePaul was held to 48 points by Marquette in a 1- point loss. Conversely, things are on the upswing for Greg McDermott’s Creighton squad which came within an eyelash of knocking of conference kingpin Villanova and upper tier Xavier in their final two games. The offense has picked up tremendously for the Bluejays who after entering the season with five new starters have seemingly found a groove. They’ve scored 66 points or more in seven of their last eight games while getting 72+ in five of those. Their three point shooting has been the catalyst as Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Georgia Tech isn't good but also unlucky

03.10.2015     08:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article on Georgia Tech's "bad luck" this season as the Yellow Jackets are 0-10 in games decided by five points or fewer. They've obviously been very competitive in ACC play with three overtime losses and nine others by margins of 1, 7, 3, 5, 2, 6, 2, 4, and 1. And the Yellow Jackets have been outclassed only three times: at Virginia and against North Carolina twice. They'll be up against it this afternoon however after losing double-digit scorer Marcus Georges-Hunt to injury. Boston College was bet up from -1 to -3.5.

College Basketball Betting: Kansas limps into Big XII Tournament

03.10.2015     07:31 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Curious to see how much effort Kansas puts into the Big XII Tournament will Perry Ellis (knee) doubtful to play and Cliff Alexander still dealing with eligibility issues. KU won six out of eight tournament titles from 2006-13 but bowed out in the semifinals last season. The Jayhawks await the winner of Wednesday's TCU-Kansas State game.


“He will wear a brace for the rest of the season,” Self said to Katz. “If the doctors say he’s not feeling well enough, we will sit him for the tournament. All indications are he is doing well with his lateral movement.

“We will press forward and put him in position, and hopefully he’ll be 100 percent by the NCAA tournament.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who has what it takes to win the Big Dance Part II

03.09.2015     06:12 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part I of this article last week, I took a basic look at the profile of the past 16 NCAA champions.  From that profile, I was able to make a short list of potential champs in 2015, consisting of the following 12 teams:  Virginia, Duke, Notre Dame, Louisville, Kansas, Baylor, Villanova, Wisconsin, Maryland, Arizona, Utah and Kentucky.

However, since that article was written last week, one of those 12 teams has been bounced from consideration, with Baylor suffering their eighth loss of the season at Texas in overtime.  I don’t think the Bears were serious contenders to win the title, but now that they are above the seven loss cut-off line, we can eliminate Scott Drew’s squad from the discussion entirely.

The next step in the elimination process is to look at the team’s records away from home.

The NCAA championship is not won on a team’s home floor.  Even with a favorable location one weekend, a team is still going to have to win Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Wisconsin Badgers at Ohio State Buckeyes

Wisconsin at Ohio State
Recommendation: Ohio State +1.5 First Half


I don't buy into team's playing "extra hard" to earn a certain seed in the conference tournament or in the case of Wisconsin, the Big Dance. The Badgers already have the Big Ten regular season crown wrapped up and as a result there is talk about them earning a No. 1 seed come next week's Selection Sunday. I'm sure they'd take it but it'll have no bearing on the outcome of today's game at Ohio State. Visually, Wisconsin was the best team in the Big Ten but I go back to their favorable schedule with getting to play Michigan State, Maryland, Purdue, and today's opponent, Ohio State, only once. A few weeks ago, against a rested and ready Maryland squad, the Badgers were outplayed throughout as the Terrapins won 59-53 in College Park. Not getting as juicy of a price (Maryland was as high as +6) but still catching points with a reputable home team and home court. Should be a great environment with the game being televised nationally on CBS as well as OSU honoring its seniors. We'll look to use that positive energy on a first half play with the home side.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Stanford Cardinal at Arizona Wildcats

Stanford at Arizona
Recommendation: First Half Over 66


Arizona looked like a well-oiled machine in Thursday's PAC-10 regular season title clinching win over Cal. The Wildcats fell one point short of 100 in the 99-60 route. There's no reason to think that UA's desire to push pace and score won't continue against a reeling Stanford squad playing its second road game in three days. The Cardinal had two chances to pick up much-needed resume building wins against Oregon and Arizona State and faltered both times. The inability to step up when needed has been a staple throughout Johnny Dawkins’ tenure. A win here, though very unlikely, would put them back in the NCAA Tournament picture so perhaps we see some fight. In the first meeting, there was plenty of pace (146 possessions) and points (171). While it'll be tough to top that offensive output, I project the pace to be fairly quick throughout. With perhaps less intensity, both teams playing on short rest, this has all the makings of a loose, up-and-down affair. The concern is should Arizona lead big late, the game has the potential to bog down. To avoid that, I think the best angle here is to step Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Memphis Tigers at UConn Huskies

Memphis at UConn -7 O/U 128
Recommendation: UConn


Memphis’s track record is very clear.  When the Tigers step down in class, their athleticism and talent can carry them to victory; hence their 7-2 ATS mark in games where they’ve been favored by 7.5 or more points.  But as an underdog on any floor, the Tigers are 1-7 ATS, consistently failing to step up against quality foes.

Josh Pastner ranks among the Top 10 winningest coaches in the history of college basketball for his first six years on the job, with 147 career victories since he took over for John Calipari as an untested 31 year old.  Yet despite all of that success, Pastner is in real danger of getting fired this offseason.  Despite their talent, Memphis hasn’t survived past the opening weekend of the Big Dance in his tenure.  The Tigers are just 5-20 SU in 25 tries against nationally ranked foes under Pastner.  And Memphis isn’t developing NBA talent under his tutelage, recruiting only two players who were drafted during his tenure, one of whom was Duke transfer Elliot Williams.

Memphis has already matched their highest Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: San Diego State Aztecs at UNLV Rebels

San Diego State -4.5 at UNLV O/U 121
Recommendation: San Diego State


San Diego State needs to rebound from last Saturday’s confidence shaking home loss to Boise State. That result put the Aztecs on the short end of a regular season series sweep by Boise with each of their losses coming by double digits. Up three at half, SDSU was 20 minutes from avenging their 61-46 loss at Boise on Feb 8. However, they were dominated 35-22 in the second half scoring just 7 points in the final 11 minutes. San Diego State’s 32.7% shooting came on the heels of three straight games of 47% or better from the floor and eight of 10 in conference play where they shot 43.6% or higher. Defensively, they were sound once again and that area of their game has caused U.N.L.V. fits in this matchup recently. The Rebels have dropped four in a row to San Diego State and they’ve been held to 52 pts or less in three of those meetings. SDSU is on a 3-0 ATS streak versus UNLV here at the Thomas & Mack Center and a 4-1 ATS run in the series overall. The Rebels have played better lately despite being without leading scorer Rashad Vaughn for the last few games but they Read more

College Basketball Betting Alert: Key injuries for Miami result in Pitt steam

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Big blow to the Miami Hurricanes with point guard Angel Rodriguez (wrist, 12.3 ppg) out and Sheldon McClellan (groin, 14.9 ppg) questionable for tonight's game at Pittsburgh. There are conflicting reports on McClellan's official status with various outlets listing him as anywhere from "out", to "doubtful", to "questionable." The betting markets appear confident neither will play with Pitt bet up from -2.5 to -5/-5.5.

College Basketball Betting: Tennessee running out of gas

03.04.2015     08:26 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After starting 4-1 in SEC play, Tennessee has dropped nine of 11 to fall out of the NCAA Tournament discussion. The Vols' defense appears to be running on fumes having allowed well over a point per possession in six straight contests including 1.22 and 1.19 in recent losses to Vanderbilt and Florida, respectively. UT travels to LSU tonight. The Tigers dominated the first meeting in Knoxville, 73-55.


"I don't know that our team has lost any intensity," Tennessee coach Donnie Tyndall said. "I think the biggest thing is we've lost some detail."

"I don't care who you are, how strong you are," Tyndall said. "Losing is not fun, and it can wear on you a little bit."
