NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Marquette Golden Eagles vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Marquette vs. South Carolina -1 O/U 142
Recommendation: Under


South Carolina doesn’t play at a snail’s pace, but they are truly an elite defensive team and just as truly an ugly offensive team.  So while this total makes sense given the Gamecocks pace of play, it looks a good notch or two too high for this bettor due to the way the play, not their pace of play.  To put this total in perspective, the Gamecocks last game in the SEC tourney against Alabama, was totaled at 122.5 and it stayed under with room to spare.

When we look at the Gamecocks results from non-conference play against opponents who were not familiar with their intense, physical style, we saw totals that were routinely priced waaaaaaay too high.  They were lined at 156.5 against Monmouth, a game that finished with 120 points in regulation.  Their game against Michigan was totaled at 136.5, finishing with 107 points.  Against Syracuse on a neutral floor at Madison Square Garden, it was another game that stayed 20+ points Under.  Similar class games Seton Hall on a neutral floor, Clemson and Memphis were all Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Bucknell Bison vs. West Virginia Mountaineers

03.16.2017     08:45 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Bucknell +13 vs. West Virginia O/U 148
Recommendation: Bucknell


West Virginia is deep, athletic and forces turnovers as well as any team in the country with their pressing style but now they are up against a Bucknell squad that will look to slow them down and grind in the half-court at every opportunity. If that occurs, it will force West Virginia to have to execute their offense and make shots in the half court and that is something they have struggled with on multiple occasions this season. I’m not fully convinced that the Mountaineers can execute well enough in a half-court game to be able to win this game by the margin that this pointspread is calling for. Bucknell has a couple strong interior players including junior forward Zach Thomas who leads the team in scoring at 16 ppg and is second in rebounding and their center Nana Foulland is second in scoring and the Bison’s leading rebounder. Bucknell has a fairly solid rebounding rate on the season so they shouldn’t be intimidated by West Virginia in the battle on the glass. Bucknell has multiple solid ball handlers in their backcourt led by PG Stephen Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Virginia Tech Hokies vs. Wisconsin Badgers

Virginia Tech +5.5 vs. Wisconsin O/U 136
Recommendation: Virginia Tech


Contrasting styles in this East Regional late tip-off which features teams who enter in very different form against the spread. For Virginia Tech the last 10 games have seen their supporters collect nine times. The only loss in the Hokies current 90% ticket cashing streak came on March 4 when they were -1.5 point favorites against Wake Forest in the second round of the ACC Tournament. VT is 7-1 ATS since losing third leading scorer Chris Clark. At the time, that injury to the Hokies most athletic player seemed devastating but they’ve gone 6-0 ATSas an underdog winning four of those straight up. A huge part of the success goes to their offense which posted a 57.1 effective FG% in ACC play which ranked #1 in the conference. Buzz Williams’ team was also #1 from 3-point range in league play shooting a stellar 41.4% led by Seth Allen (45.1%), Justin Bibbs (42.5%) and Ty Outlaw (48.2%. In all, five players have at least 107 3-point attempts and they all shoot 36.4% or better. That perimeter marksmanship will keep Wisconsin busy while they’ll Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Princeton Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Princeton vs. Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Notre Dame


Pointspreads tend to be very accurate by this time of the year.  Both the oddsmakers and the broader betting markets have a full seasons worth of data to punch into their computers.  The end result is that the numbers -- both sides and total -- are consistently right where they are supposed to be.

So when bettors are looking for an edge at this time of the year, they’re going to have to dig for information that is not factored into the numbers.  Given the full season results and stats for Princeton and Notre Dame, this pointspread is as accurate as it gets.  But when it comes to key tidbits of info?  Well, that’s where we can find an edge.

Princeton was forced to leave New Jersey on Monday due to the East Coast blizzard; more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.  That wouldn’t necessarily be a big deal, except for the fact that the Tigers played in the first ever Ivy League Championship Game on Sunday, creating a mad scramble for a team from a conference that has never had a conference tourney Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Valparaiso Crusaders at Illinois Fighting Illini

Valparaiso at Illinois -9 O/U 140
Recommendation: Illinois


Valparaiso accepted the last at-large bid into the NIT tournament as a 7th seed and will face second seed Illinois. The Crusaders return to the court for the first time since they scored just 12 points in the first half of an evental 43-41 loss to UW-Milwaukee in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League tournament.

Illinois (18-14) enters the NIT in a unique spot as interim coach Jamall Walker take over after John Groce was fired over the weekend. The good news for Illinois is that the Crusaders' best player, Alec Peters, is out with an injury. Peters led Valpo with 23 ppg and 10 rpg. He's a Big Ten caliber player and one that is likely to have him name called in the NBA Draft. Not having to account for Peters gives an already solid Illinois defense a big edge.

Here's what Walker had to say about the situation: "It's the NIT," Walker said. " It's who's prepared and ready to play. Who's excited to play, who wants to play more than anything else." Walker says expects his players, especially the seniors, to go out with a bang. He compares his team to a Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapping: Odds suggest better than 80% chance a no. 12 seed wins

03.14.2017     09:38 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Since the NCAA Tournament expanded to 64 teams, the no. 12 seed has won 46 games. There have been only four tournaments (1988, 2000, 2007, and 2015) where a no. 12 seed failed to win a game. On 14 occasions, no. 12 seeds won two or more games in the first round of the tournament. We came across a prop bet that asks "yes" or no" on will a no. 12 seed win a game. The "yes" is -450, the "no" +350.

This year's no. 12 vs. no. 5 matchups include...

(5) Virginia -7.5 vs. (12) UNC Wilmington
(5) Iowa State -5.5 vs. (12) Nevada
(5) Notre Dame -7 vs. (12) Princeton
(5) Minnesota pk vs. (12) Minnesota
