College Basketball Free Play: Texas Tech Red Raiders at Oklahoma State Cowboys

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas Tech +11.5 at Oklahoma State O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Texas Tech


I keep reading articles about how Oklahoma State's tough non-conference schedule is going to pay dividends down the road but I see it helping them grind out a close win on the road, not beating teams by double-digits. Since victories over bottom feeders Texas A&M Corpus Christi and Arkansas-Pine Bluff, the Cowboys are 4-6 SU with two wins in overtime and the other two by three and five. You can certainly make and argument that all ten of those opponents are better than Texas Tech but Texas-San Antonio, Tulsa and SMU aren’t too far removed. The Red Raiders took their lumps early on and will continue to do so when asked to step up in class in the Big XII. You look at their resume and there isn't one win to get excited about. But I look at two factors: One, they have been in every game with the exception of a 16-point loss at Oral Roberts. Second, I'm a firm believer in Read more

NCAAB Handicapper Free Pick: Oral Roberts Golden Eagles vs. Oakland Grizzlies

Oral Roberts at Oakland +3 O/U 150
Recommendation: Oakland


It doesn't appear that Oakland is the class of the Summit League this season after a 17-1 mark last year. The Grizzlies have already lost two league games and find themselves in the midst of a four-game losing streak. We know this team still has talent with a home win over Tennessee and solid performances in losses to Ohio, Michigan and Arizona. This is a home court that has held up extremely well over the years with 31-straight conference victories. A potentially dangerous spot for Oral Roberts who is playing its third straight road game and returns home for a two-game set against upstart North Dakota State and South Dakota State on Thursday and Saturday. ORU has an impressive resume but is perhaps getting a bit too much credit for winning at Xavier when the Musketeers were decimated by suspensions. Oakland was a 1.5-point underdog in the win over Tennessee and just a year removed from never being less than a double-digit favorite on its home court in conference play. Oakland head coach Greg Kampe described tonight's game as "must win as you can ever have in January". Never like to Read more

College Basketball Free Pick: George Mason at College of Charleston

George Mason at College of Charleston -3.5 O/U 139
Recommendation: College of Charleston


Laying -2.5 to -4 with home teams can be tricky because in most cases, the two teams involved are evenly matched and the only thing separating them is a sometimes phantom home court advantage. But in this particular matchup, I see the favorite as the legitimately better team while also owning a home court advantage that is real. College of Charleston was not expected to do much this season after losing a host of seniors including all-everything guard Andrew Goudelock. But 12 games into the season it looks as if this year's edition isn't too far removed 2010-11's 26-win squad. And that type of success has been the norm under head coach Bobby Cremins who has produced 22+ win campaigns in four of his five seasons in Charleston and looks headed for a sixth in 2012. The Cougars have no seriously blemishes on their resume with wins over Clemson, UMass and Tennessee. Their two competitive losses to Central Florida and at Louisville are nothing to be ashamed of. The offense has scored one point per possession in every game but two and the only knock that I see is a Read more

NCAA Basketball Betting: Northern Arizona and Idaho State coaching changes

12.29.2011     01:17 PM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some news out of the Big Sky that seems to have flown under the radar. Both Northern Arizona and Idaho State saw their head coaches resign recently.

Joe O'Brien had a lot of success at the junior college level but could never kick start the Idaho State program (56-105 since 2006). Assistant Deane Martin has taken over on an interim basis. Martin is a first-year assistant who spent time as a coach in Mexico and with the NBDL. ISU lost to Wyoming 80-56 at home in Martin's debut. They play at Weber State tonight.

Northern Arizona's Mike Adras stepped aside back in early December and the Lumberjacks responded under 70-year-old interim coach Dave Brown with wins over Cal State Bakersfield and Arizona State. They were however blasted at Sam Houston State last time out, 73-49. NAU plays host to Sacramento State tonight.

The personnel for both teams are so poor this year that the coaching changes are unlikely to bring about a massive turnaround. The Big Sky is a flaky league where randomness tends to prevail but I have little to no interest in backing these squads anytime soon (4-12 ATS combined).

College Basketball Free Pick: UCLA Bruins at Stanford Cardinal

UCLA at Stanford -6 O/U 127
Recommendation: Stanford


UCLA just spend the better part of December trying to get back in the good graces of the betting markets. Apparently they've done enough to be competitively lined on the road against a quality opponent. But while the Bruins may have built some confidence, it doesn't necessarily mean they are a quality basketball team. The last five opponents were all nowhere near Stanford in terms of ability and they all took place in Los Angeles. UC Irvine, UC Davis, Eastern Washington – those are teams UCLA should be able to beat with their bench alone. Penn and Richmond are halfway decent and UCLA got all they could handle in both contests. Stanford outpaced the market place in November with a 6-0 ATS mark but stumbled last time out against Butler (as a 12.5-point favorite). That loss and UCLA's recent results provide what appears to me to be a decent discount. Lay the points in this PAC-12 opener.

Seton Hall +15.5 at Syracuse O/U 137
Recommendation: Seton Hall


I realize that Seton Hall's 11-1 start was aided by more than a handful of creampuff opponents. I'm also aware that the Pirates won in the Carrier Dome last season by 32 as 12.5-point underdogs. But those factors don't outweigh that we have a capable underdog catching +15.5 in a conference game. Syracuse has the look of an elite team but in five games against decent competition, the Orange weren’t exactly posting 20-point wins left and right. They beat Virginia Tech and Stanford by 11 and six respectively at Madison Square Garden and slipped past Florida by four. Marshall went to the Carrier Dome and lost by six and NC State jumped out to a big lead before the Orange went on a crazy 23-0 run in the first half. The Wolfpack though managed to tie the game in the second before running out of steam in what ended up be a somewhat deceiving 88-72 loss. In Big East play last year, Syracuse Read more

College Basketball Free Play: UTEP Miners vs. Kansas State Wildcats

UTEP +10.5 vs. Kansas State O/U 128
Recommendation: UTEP


Few teams if any have improved more over the last few weeks than UTEP. It all started after the Miners lost to Stephen F. Austin at home 53-35. Tim Floyd decided with a host of inexperience and youth that the best thing to do was to shorten the game and play at a slow pace in order to just stick around. The move paid off as the Miners went to Oregon and lost by six and then beat New Mexico State after losing to the Aggies by 16 a month earlier. They then hung at UNLV in an 11-point loss and last night dominated Clemson 61-48. Kansas State has done nothing wrong this season with wins over Virginia Tech and Alabama and a double-OT loss to West Virginia. But in a neutral site setting, where laying this type of price can be extremely dangerous, I see no reason that UTEP can't grind its way to another spread cover.

College Basketball Free Pick: LSU Tigers at North Texas Mean Green

LSU at North Texas +7 O/U 129
Recommendation: North Texas


Good spot to step in and fade LSU following its upset win over Marquette on Monday. The Tigers, who average less than a point per possession, had and uncharacteristically efficient offensive outing. Defensively, LSU is pretty good, holding seven of its last eight opponents under 60 points, but the offense kept them from winning most of those games by a decent margin. They beat a bad Georgia Tech team by nine in a meaningless fifth place consolation game -- it was a one-point game with three minutes left. They then lost to South Alabama at home and posted close wins over Houston, Rutgers and UC Irvine. The only blowout was against a young Boise State squad that has shown no ability to perform on the road. North Texas lost a lot of talent from last year and took some lumps early on. They've however won four straight and got a big boost with Missouri transfer Tony Mitchell now eligible. The Mean Green have Read more

College Basketball Free Play: Duquesne Dukes at George Mason Patriots

Duquesne at George Mason -6 O/U 139
Recommendation: Over


Despite being the epitome of all "offense, no defense" Duquesne games continue to totaled in a respectable range. The Dukes obviously want to run, so much so that when they play games with 73 or more possessions, they've only lost once the last two years whereas when games register 72 or fewer possessions, they are nine games under .500. But the most telling stat is when Duquesne averages a point per possession or more, nearly all over their games the last two years saw 140+ points. On the flip side, when they fail to top 1.0 ppp, nearly all over their games end up in the 120's. So the question is can they top the 1.0 ppp tonight against George Mason? A close look at GM’s schedules suggests yes. For the last month, Mason has been playing a combination of slow paced, unathletic, offensively challenged teams. As a result, their defensive numbers look good. But go back to earlier this year Read more

Eastern Washington +16.5 at St. Mary’s O/U 136
Recommendation: Eastern Washington


A closer look at St. Mary's schedule shows that winning by this type of margin may prove a bit more difficult with Eastern Washington the first halfway competent team the Gaels have faced since early December. St. Mary’s has won its last four games by an average margin of 27.8 ppg but as mentioned, they were against some of the worst teams in the country. Jackson State, NC A&T, Bethune Cookman and Kennesaw State have a combined seven DI wins – all of which against fellow bottom feeders. When the opposition was a notch better, St. Mary's beat Cal Poly by five and played even with Weber State for much of the game before pulling away late. And to open the year, the Gaels beat Northern Iowa by 16 but the spot was horrendous for the Panthers who had just won by 17 at Old Dominion two days earlier. Note EWU's interesting tactic last time against UCLA – a move that could potentially be in play tonight. The Eagles essentially went four corners with the hopes of shortening the game. The plan worked to a certain extent, but Eastern shot a dismal 26% Read more
