College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas A&M Aggies vs. Virginia Tech Hokies

Texas A&M vs. Virginia Tech +2.5 O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Texas A&M lost a ton of experience from last year's group that won 28 games and reached the Sweet Sixteen. It was one of the most "together" teams in the country last year with clearly defined roles throughout the roster. This year's group has talent and the one constant under head coach Billy Kennedy is defense so I'm not expecting 2016-17 to be a total rebuild job. But there are going to be bumps in the road and we saw it first hand in A&M's recent home loss to USC in which they coughed up a lead late and lost 65-63. Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams did a masterful job last season as he took an ultra-young roster and produced 20 wins and a 10-8 record in ACC play. He was forced to play a number of kids who weren't ready to compete at such a high level but much of that group is back. Now you have a coach who is noted for getting kids to buy in and play hard in his second season. The Hokies' talent was on full display yesterday as they hung 92 points in a blowout win over New Mexico. It's a pretty big step up in class tonight as the Aggies will mark Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: San Francisco Dons at UC Santa Barbara Gauchos

San Francisco at UC Santa Barbara -8.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: Under


San Francisco first-year head coach Kyle Smith, who came over from Columbia, vowed to shore up the Dons' defense and play a more control brand of basketball. That didn't exactly play out in their first game as a wave of early hot shooting led to a fast-paced 82-80 win over run-and-gun UIC. Far different opponent for USF tonight as its travels to UC Santa Barbara. Under longtime head coach Bob Williams, the Gauchos have consistently been one of the better defensive and slower teams in the Big West. In their first game, UCSB suffered a 74-60 loss to up-tempo Nebraska-Omaha. Netting only 60 points on your home floor in perhaps a bit alarming considering Omaha coughed up 80+ against USC and Kansas State. Last season, these two teams hooked up for a slow paced (62 possession) 68-61 game. That was with Rex Walters at the helm for USF; a coach whose teams generally play fast. And the total in that game closed 140.5. As mentioned, Smith's Columbia teams were among the slowest in the country. Some of that had to do with playing in the Ivy League but even in non-conference play, the Lions Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Miami-Ohio RedHawks at Wright State Raiders

Miami-Ohio at Wright State -8 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Wright State


In four seasons at Miami of Ohio, John Cooper has yet to produce a winning record in MAC play. In fact, they are 20 games under .500 during that span. This year projects to be another struggle as the RedHawks have no scholarship seniors and must rely on a bevy of newcomers and underclassmen. "Fresh starts" aren’t necessarily a bad thing for a struggling program but the reality is, Miami has little to no pedigree when it comes to recruiting quality talent. Wright State does have a solid pedigree with 10-6, 10-6 and 13-5 records inside the Horizon in three out of the last four years. They suffered a hiccup in 2015 (11-20, 3-13) but bounced back strong last season with 22 wins. This past offseason head coach Billy Donlon was mysteriously fired which opened the door for longtime South Dakota State coach Scott Nagy. Nagy had some great teams including last year's group that took Maryland to the wire in the NCAA Tournament. Donlon's firing was odd but the university got a good one in Nagy. The Raiders opened the season with an impressive road victory at Southern Illinois. Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Loyola Marymount Lions at Nevada Wolf Pack

Loyola Marymount at Nevada -11 O/U 149.5
Recommendation: Nevada


Nevada head coach Eric Musselman produced one of the better coaching performances in the country last season as he took a middling program to 24 wins and a CBI title. The Wolf Pack were young, had little to no depth, and were one of the worst shooting teams in the country at 45.5 eFG% and 29% from three. What Nevada did do was play hard and defend. This season, they return four key players and welcome some newcomers expected to contribute immediately. While Marqueze Coleman and Tyron Criswell produced points, they were also high volume shooters and not very efficient. Both players have since departed and with a handful of younger players a year older and some transfers, I'm confident we'll see the team's shooting percentages improve. In their first game of the season, they managed to hit 47% in a really tough environment at St. Mary's. But tonight's opponent offers an opportunity for offensive success. In Loyola Marymount's first season under Mike Dunlap, the Lions ranked 312th in defensive efficiency. Last year, they "improved" to 254th. It's reasonable to call more Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Analyzing first-year coaching hires

Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The college basketball season gets underway on Friday. I've been hard at work trying to get a read on as many teams as possible. Last night involved a lot of "new coach" research as I poured over the ridiculously long list of first-year coaches. Below are my thoughts and opinions on some of the hirings.

Arkansas State
New Coach: Grant McCasland
Thoughts: McCasland has HC experience at JC and D2 and spent five years as an assistant at Baylor. Red Wolves were last seen in mail-it-in-mode under John Brady as they lost nine straight to close out last season.

Drexel
New Coach: Zach Spiker
Thoughts: It's a common theme across all sports: slow or even moderate tempo teams that try to play fast under new system/coach generally struggle. Dragons played it close to the vest under Bruiser and now ex-Army HC Spiker brings in up-tempo. To Spiker's credit, he said it's going to take time.  

Pacific
New Coach: Damon Stoudamire
Thoughts: Unlike some other ex-pro hires, Stoudamire has paid his dues as an assistant. Curious to see whether or not he's got the Read more

NCAA Tournament Gambling Free Pick: Iowa State Cyclones vs. Virginia Cavaliers

Iowa State vs. Virginia -5 O/U 141
Recommendation: Virginia


Friday night’s Sweet Sixteen matchup between Iowa State and Virginia is a classic battle of contrasting styles. The Cyclones prefer to go at it with an up-and-down offensive style while the Cavaliers slow you down half court and force you to play at their speed. ISU beat two double-digit seeds in Iona and Arkansas Little-Rock to advance to the Round of 16. Their win over UALR is especially important because the Trojans and Virginia play a similar brand of basketball. Clearly fatigued after a double OT win over Purdue, Little Rock just couldn’t handle ISU’s balanced offense as the Cyclones shot well above 50% for the game. They won’t have nearly as many high percentage looks on Friday with Virginia boasting the fourth-best defensive efficiency rating in the country. And while everyone is focused on UVA’s defensive prowess, don’t forget that they posted near identical offensive numbers to that of Iowa State. The Cyclones averaged 1.20 points per possession this season while the Cavs produced 1.19. Meanwhile, ISU just hasn’t shown the ability to defend Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NCAA Tournament Hard Numbers, Not Hype

03.21.2016     12:22 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The insanity that was the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament is in the rear view mirror, and the hard numbers show a very different story than the mainstream media is reporting.  Just once, I wish I could turn on Sportscenter and find out what was going on against the spread.  But ESPN doesn’t do that, obviously, nor does CBS, TNT, TBS, TrueTV or any of the other major networks, whether they’re involved with televising the Big Dance or not.  That, of course, leaves a void for me to fill.

Carnage!  Madness! Brackets in flames, in shreds!  That was the message from the networks over the weekend.  Bettors, however, saw a very different story.  Betting favorites, in fact, had a winning weekend against the spread over the first four full days of the tournament.

I threw out all the games where there was no true favorite; games with a pointspread of -1.5 or less.  Many of those games — like Notre Dame vs Stephen F Austin on Sunday; a disastrous result for many books — had a switch of favorites at some point between the opening and closing lines.  Notre Dame +1.5 and Stephen F Austin +1.5 were both Read more

NCAA Tournament Gambling Free Pick: Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. Utah Utes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Gonzaga -2 vs. Utah O/U 139
Recommendation: Under


Both teams played it close to the vest in the first round as Gonzaga won a 68-52 grinder over Seton Hall and Utah did the same against Fresno State. The lone difference was the Zags avoided the dreaded late foul fest and went way under the total while the Utes traded baskets and free throws against a desperate Fresno squad that made a late rally. Keep in mind the Utah-Fresno game was 33-22 at half but both teams combined for 94 points after the break. Utah played zone against Fresno for most of the game while running the offense inside-out through center Jakob Poeltl. Those are two factors that will help towards the under. Gonzaga will try to do the same thing with center Domantas Sabonis who took a team-high 20 field attempts against Seton Hall. I'm projecting the game to be in the low 60's possession wise which gives us wiggle room to play under on the current total of 139.
