College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Texas Tech Red Raiders at West Virginia Mountaineers

Texas Tech +10 at West Virginia O/U 145
Recommendation: Texas Tech


The Red Raiders and the Mountaineers have surpassed preseason expectations with West Virginia (22-7, 11-5) picked to finish sixth and Texas Tech (18-10, 8-8) picked last in the Big XII. The Mountaineers are in second place in the season's final week while the Red Raiders are in seventh but in good position for an NCAA Tournament berth thanks to a strong RPI and strength of schedule. Tonight’s matchup is a rematch and the Mountaineers have taken five straight over the Red Raiders putting them at 8-1 in the all-time series with an 80-76 victory on Jan. 23. Texas Tech was up by four with under a minute left before allowing West Virginia's Tarik Phillip to score the game's final eight points. Jaysean Paige scored 22 and Phillip added 20 as West Virginia shot 51.0 percent. Tonight’s matchup features a hot Texas Tech team coming in 5-1 over its past six games which includes impressive wins over Oklahoma, Baylor, and Iowa State. Head coach Tubby Smith has his team alive for a NCAA tournament bid for the first time since 2007. While Morgantown is a tough venue, teams tend to be Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Florida desperate for defense as it plays host to Kentucky

03.01.2016     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Florida looked to be in good position to get to the Big Dance but three straight losses have the Gators in danger of not finishing with a winning record in SEC play. UF's defense has been non-existent as it allowed 87 to Vanderbilt and 96 last time out against LSU. First-year head coach Mike White claims that the team has done nothing but play defense in practice leading up to tonight's game against Kentucky.


“We got a little better offensively. But it took away from us being a good defensive team. We haven’t guarded the same way here of late.”

“Yesterday, 100 percent of the practice was defense,” White said. “And today, we’ll spend a lot more time on defense as well. I guess it’s always a balancing act, and we’ve got to get back to defending at a high level to give ourselves a chance.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part I

02.29.2016     09:26 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA national champion among my elite level teams.   Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Two years ago, Kevin Ollie’s Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

I write this article every year before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the tourney seedings are announced and before a single March Madness game has been played.  Obviously, there is room for a lot to change between now and the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Arizona State Sun Devils at Colorado Buffaloes

Arizona State at Colorado -7.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Colorado


In the not so distant future, Bobby Hurley will have Arizona State as a contender in the PAC-12. But it's pretty apparent that he and his current squad have tuned one another out. For starters, with two weeks to go in the season, Andre Spight decided to leave the program. It marked yet another player issue as injuries, suspensions, and now a departure have marred what was once a promising season (10-3 start). As for the play on the court, check out ASU's last three games: Lose by 13 at home to fellow bottom feeder UCLA, get destroyed by rival Arizona, 99-61, and trail Utah by margins of 30-2 and 64-19 en route to a 81-46 loss. The only thing Arizona State has to look forward to is the slim chance of a run in the PAC-12 Tournament. But before they get there, they'll have to play the second of the dreaded "elevation" trip of Salt Lake City to Boulder. They do get an extra day off having not played since Thursday but based on their current form, it won't matter. And we can expect a prime effort from the home side as Colorado (20-9, 9-7) can ill-afford a "bad loss." A Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Texas A&M Aggies at Missouri Tigers

Texas A&M -9.5 at Missouri O/U 140.5
Recommendation: Over


I see no quit in the Missouri Tigers despite another season of issues. They sit 10-18 overall and 3-12 in SEC play but have quietly covered six straight games thanks to an uptick in offensive output. The first half of the SEC schedule, Mizzou barely averaged over 60 ppg, including a 53-point output against tonight's opponent Texas A&M. But since then, they've hung 70+ in seven consecutive contests which has in turn resulted in cashed tickets as an underdog and on the over. Efficiency wise, the Tigers are only slightly better than they were two months ago. The increase is scoring actually has more to do with pace as their games have averaged over 70 possessions over their last six games. It's pretty apparent that Kim Anderson is telling his kids to go have fun and play hard. And as silly as it sounds, losing a game 80-70 is probably a lot easier pill to swallow than some of the low scoring, bloodbaths of last season. Scoring and pace however won't be automatics tonight as A&M tends to play slow while also defending at above average level. They have however been willing to play an Read more

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Villanova Wildcats at Xavier Musketeers

Villanova -1.5 at Xavier O/U 145
Recommendation: Villanova


The most important Big East game of the season tips tonight in Cincinnati as Villanova will be defending its No. 1 ranking on the road vs No. 5 ranked Xavier with first place on the line for both teams.  Xavier has played well of late winning eight of nine games and the Musketeers will be looking to avenge their first loss of the season to the Wildcats, a 31-point blowout. Villanova has been Xavier’s kryptonite. In the past three years spanning six games, the Musketeers are 0-6, losing by an average of 17 ppg a game. The Wildcats destroyed the Musketeers in December as Ryan Arcidiacono went for 27 points including 50% from behind the line.

The Wildcats are No. 1 thanks to 16 wins in the past 17 games after an 8-2 start to the year. Josh Hart has been a huge part of that success, averaging a team-high 15.0 points to go along with 7.6 rebounds per game. Daniel Ochefu has been rock-solid since coming back from injury, averaging 14.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks in the past four games.

Xavier has played well at home, not losing since a 9-point Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies at Boston College Eagles

Virginia Tech -6 at Boston College O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Over


Boston College has topped 60 points only six times in ACC play this season. It's almost impossible to do but the Eagles are averaging 0.82 points per possession. Last time out, they at one point trailed woeful Wake Forest 37-4 before losing 74-48. It was a low-point in a disaster of a season and back at home against a mediocre opponent, I look for a much better effort on the offensive end. And as bad as Boston College has been, its home games have typically featured a fair amount of points. At home in ACC play, BC home games have hit 145, 137, 120, 134, 133, and 136. Tonight presents another opportunity to top 130 points with Virginia Tech coming to town. The Hokies rank 11th in the ACC in defensive efficiency and outside of games against slow paced defensive-minded Virginia, Syracuse, Clemson and Miami, they've routinely scored 70+. Pace-wise, Boston College is so bad that the opposition almost always dictates the pace. Virginia Tech's tempo has slowed of late but it has more to do with the opposition. Games against Virginia, Miami, Clemson, and Syracuse were all in the low 60's. But Read more

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Duke Blue Devils at North Carolina Tar Heels

Duke at North Carolina -7.5 O/U 162
Recommendation: Over


One of college basketball’s most heated rivalries will tip tonight when No. 20 Duke makes the 10-mile trip along Tobacco Road to face No. 5 North Carolina on ESPN. The Blue Devils have won three straight in the series, but the Tar Heels sit atop this year’s ACC standings. Both teams rank in the top 5 in the nation in offensive efficiency and possess multiple offensive weapons to make this a must see primetime game.

The defending national champion Blue Devils will also look to extend their winning streak to five games and beat the conference-leading Tar Heels for the 11th time in 14 meetings. Duke is 10-3 straight up and 7-6 against the spread in the past 13 games of the series. The past three meetings between the two ACC rivals have all finished over the total. Duke averaged nearly 90 points in winning each of those games. The Blue Devils’ Grayson Allen, who made the buzzer-beating game winning basket against Virginia on Saturday, paces the Blue Devils in minutes (35.3), points (20.6) and assists (3.7) per game. The sophomore is shooting 48.9 percent from the field, Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Illinois Fighting Illini

Rutgers at Illinois
Recommendation: First half Under 68


Rutgers, who has struggled to score for much of the season, will be without the Big Ten's top "usage" player in Corey Sanders (suspended). Sanders leads the Scarlet Knights in virtually every offensive statistical category and netted 39 points in the team's triple OT loss to Illinois two weeks ago. It's not just Sanders' point production that will be missed but also a player who dominates the ball throughout the game. I think a lot of Sanders' production is of the de facto variety but his absence will likely be felt. As for Illinois, injuries have become such a problem that the team is now experimenting with Malcolm Hill at point guard. Hill is Illinois' top offensive weapon and rather than playing him off the ball and working to get him shots, he's being asked to run the offense and score. The move didn't exactly pan out on Saturday as Hill failed to reach double-digits for the first time this season and the Illini were held to a season-low 56 at Northwestern. So why did this total get steamed from 141.5 to 145? Well, you have two of the league's worst defenses involved for starters. Read more

UW-Milwaukee at UW-Green Bay -2.5 O/U 168.5
Recommendation: UW-Green Bay


Not a heck of a lot to choose from here tonight but there is an interesting spot on tonight Horizon League schedule we’ll look to take advantage of. For those who checked out today’s Sportsmemo CBB podcast, you heard the uniqueness of Green Bay’s schedule pointed out by Andrew Lange and that element certainly plays a situational role here. UWGB has played 10 of their 12 conference games on the road thus far and they’ve played them in stretches of, five consecutive away from home, two at home and then five more away from home. Tonight starts a string of five straight home games to close out their regular season and expectation here is they’ll be fully focused and ready to make a late season surge in the standings. Currently at 7-6 in a tie with Milwaukee, the Phoenix has a favorable schedule which could catapult them all the way to second place and a double bye in the conference tournament. Revenge for their 95-94 loss to these Panthers Read more
