College Basketball Handicapping: Betting markets react to Drexel losing Lee to injury

02.26.2015     12:25 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
This has been public for quite some time in case you missed it, check out who's not playing for Drexel tonight.

Damion Lee: 21.4 ppg, 6.1 rpg
Sammy Mojica: 6.2 ppg, 37.5% 3-pt.

Now the question becomes how much are both those players worth to the pointspread for tonight's game against Delaware (8-19)? The market is saying 4.5 points as the Dragons opened -3 but the Blue Hens are now -1.5. Losing Lee is huge but fading key injuries can be risky as bettors have a tendency to overreact. 


“He only averaged about 15 shots a game (14.4),” Flint says. “So he was scoring a lot of points without taking a lot of shots. That’s the one thing that he did pretty much the entire season. But it’ll be spread out throughout the entire team so guys just have to pick it up. Not one guy is just going to get all the shots.”

College Basketball Gambling Update: Nebraska seeks better effort vs. Ohio State

02.26.2015     11:53 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Our favorite dysfunctional team is back in action tonight as Nebraska heads to Ohio State. The smoke has cleared from the much publicized locker room ban but the fact remains this squad has zero confidence offensively. We expect the "effort" will be there tonight but until the Cornhuskers find a player or two who can hit a shot outside of the lane, Tim Miles will continue to provide us with excellent blog fodder.

 

“One player said he thought he had his most fun practicing the day after the Iowa game,” Miles said. “I said, ‘Great, you should have tried that 20 hours earlier.’ And we practiced hard. It was not a fun practice, if you know what I mean.”

“I’ve seen people say, ‘Is Miles kicked out of his office?’ Well, we’re not equals. This is not a marriage. It’s like a

College Basketball Handicapping: Minnesota looks to get younger players more reps

02.26.2015     11:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After three straight losses, (16-12, 5-10 Big Ten) Minnesota appears accepting that the only way path to the Big Dance is to win the Big Ten Tournament. But in the meantime, with three games left in the regular season, the Golden Gophers will continue to give their younger players more reps.


“I think the young guys are learning, and I think they’re picking up well,” senior center Mo Walker said. ”You’ve got to give them the court experience or they’ll never learn. … They’ll get better as time goes on.”

“As we’re moving forward, these young guys have got to get reps,” he said Saturday.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: San Diego Toreros at Gonzaga Bulldogs

San Diego +17.5 at Gonzaga O/U 133
Recommendation: San Diego


Gonzaga is, by far, the best team in the West Coast Conference.  They’ve been destroying their WCC foes all year, to the tune of a 16-0 conference record.  But the pointspread is the great equalizer, and the Zags are just 7-8-1 ATS in WCC play; not exactly a ‘bet-on’ team.
The Zags are coming off a HUGE come-from-behind win at St Mary’s last weekend, clinching the conference title and setting Gonzaga up as a possible #1 seed come tourney time.
 
Senior night comes against BYU on ESPN2 this coming Saturday, followed by the WCC Conference Tournament in Las Vegas next weekend.  In between, the Zags have nothing but this tricky matchup against San Diego; a clear flat spot on their schedule.

The Zags have had trouble building margins against the Toreros even when it’s not a flat spot.  In eight meetings between these two teams since the start of the 2012 campaign, the Zags have a grand total of one win by more than the 17 point margin they’ll need to win by tonight in order to cover the number.  Both Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: VCU Rams at Richmond Spiders

VCU at Richmond +2 O/U 128.5
Recommendation: Richmond


The Rams’ bandwagon is back after a trio of solid victories (2-1 ATS) in which they posted 70+ points. Loss of star point guard Briante Weber now appears to be smoothed over in the minds of many as backup sophomore JeQuan Lewis has seemingly settled in as the head of VCU’s vaunted “Havoc” defense. Not so sure recent results carry over to this matchup where host Richmond has a multitude of ball handling guards who found no problems breaking the Rams press in this season’s earlier matchup. That contest played at VCU saw the Spiders commit just 12 turnovers (VCU forces an average of 17.2 per game) en route to a 64-55 victory as +9.5 point underdogs. Must also be noted that Rams steals king Weber played in that contest right until the closing minutes when he injured his knee so against VCU’s best, Richmond negated the press. Also have to recognize the success of Richmond’s defense in that contest as head coach Chris Mooney’s group used a combination of sticky perimeter defense and manageable tempo to frustrate VCU. The Rams shot a miserable 3-of-20, 15% Read more

Texas +4.5 at West Virginia O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Texas


Going to step in play Texas at +4.5 (a few +5's available) as it heads to West Virginia this evening. Some bettors will undoubtedly point toward the revenge angle (UT won 77-50 in Austin) and the Longhorns' spotty play of late (back-to-back losses). But at the current price there is some value on the underdog as WVU enters off back-to-back upsets and doesn't match up particularly well against UT's front court. While Texas has plenty of weakness -- most notably a lack of consistency -- they do defend well in the paint. In their last two losses, Oklahoma and Iowa State shot a combined 28-of-77, 36.3% from two. What did them in what allowing 20 three-pointers. But unlike the Sooners and Cyclones, the Mountaineers don't have much of any outside shooting prowess. On the season, they've connected on only 30.9% of their three-point attempts. Another angle to consider is WVU's element of surprise, or lack thereof in this spot. In five "second meets" in Big XII pay, the Mountaineers have covered only once; against bottom feeder Texas Tech. Teams clearly know what to expect and while Texas Read more

College Basketball Betting: Nebraska wants to get season over with ASAP

02.23.2015     11:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things continue to head south for Nebraska as always candid head coach Tim Miles banned his team from the locker room following Sunday's 74-46 loss to Iowa. Miles had already hinted the Cornhuskers wouldn't accept a bid to a secondary postseason tournament should they even qualify. They've now lost seven of eight. NU's only win and cover during that span was when it somehow managed to pop for 76 points in blowout win over Northwestern. In their other seven games, they averaged less than 50 ppg. They close out the regular season with road games at Ohio State and Illinois and a home finale vs. Maryland.


“You never want to throw your players under the bus, but that was just beyond disappointing,” Miles said. “That’s not what we represent. I told our guys, ‘when I was at Southwest Minnesota State, to pay for shoes we used to have to go to the Renaissance Festival in Shakopee, Minnesota for a weekend and pick up trash. We were the trash guys.

“And if

02.23.2015     08:39 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Two days removed from being reinstated, Louisville starting point guard Chris Jones has been suspended again, but this time for good according to head coach Rick Pitino. Reports indicate that Jones will be seeking "anger management treatment." So just to recap; Louisville gets drilled at home by NC State, Jones is suspended, Louisville gets drilled on the road vs. Syracuse, Jones is reinstated, Louisville fails to cover in two-point win over Miami, Jones scores 17 and hits three of team's five three-pointers, Jones is kicked off the team. The Cardinals have been bet from -4 to -6/-6.5 for tonight's game at Georgia Tech.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at Oklahoma State Cowboys

West Virginia at Oklahoma State -4 O/U 134.5
Recommendation: Under


Oklahoma State has been really consistent when it comes to pace this season regardless of opponent. In their last two games, against TCU and Iowa State,  there were 124 and 126 possessions respectively. That's very important when we consider how different both those squads are on the offensive end. When the Cowboys faced Big XII squads that play up-tempo (Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma) five of those six games went under the total. Those totals ranged from the mid-130’s to mid-140’s. No matter what the opposition, it’s hard to reach that mark when you prefer a slow pace, fail to average over a point per possession, and grade out as above average defensively. Statistically, West Virginia is the fastest team in the Big XII because they press and their games often feature an endless amount of free throws. But this is a different team on the road as three of their last four road games failed to top 130 (127, 124, 123, and 138 against Iowa State). Very important game for both sides, particularly Oklahoma State who desperately needs a victory after back-to-back losses. Read more
