College Basketball Free Betting Pick: Notre Dame Fighting Irish vs. North Carolina Tar Heels

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Notre Dame vs. North Carolina -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Over


Roy Williams always wants his team to play fast, and in neutral court settings, Williams has been an Over machine: 20-7 to the Over in the Tar Heels last 27 neutral site games.  North Carolina really pushed the pace yesterday against Pitt, hanging 88 points on the generally slower paced Panthers.  Perhaps most importantly, North Carolina’s struggling three point shooters – Marcus Paige and Joel Berry – both hit multiple three pointers, enjoying the friendly Verizon Center court.

When these two teams played in the ACC Tournament Championship Game last year, we saw a truly wild shootout, with the Irish winning 90-82.  The old joke about Roy Williams having a tee time set for the Saturday of the ACC tournament – a coach who historically has placed much more importance on the Big Dance than the conference tourney – simply isn’t the case this year.  North Carolina has something to prove and something to gain in this year’s tourney; not a throwaway game for the Tar Heels by any stretch of the imagination this time Read more

College Basketball Free Betting Pick: UNLV Rebels vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

UNLV vs. Fresno State -2.5 O/U 147.5
Recommendation: Fresno State


My clients and I cashed a ticket against UNLV yesterday in their marathon triple OT non-spread covering win over Air Force in which the Rebels never once sniffed a pointspread cover as -11 favorites. The toll of that win is likely to be felt in a big way for UNLV tonight as they must endure an extremely difficult 24 hour turnaround to face Fresno State in quarterfinals. UNLV had three key players on the floor for more than 40 minutes as Jordan Cornish played 41 minutes while the trio of Jerome Seagears, Ike Nwamu and Patrick McCaw all played 54+ minutes. That is very troubling for UNLV considering all of the injuries and lack of depth this squad goes to battle with each night. Fresno State enters this game fresh as a daisy and in very good form with a strong 6-0 SU, 5-1 ATS run including a trio of solid road wins at Utah State, New Mexico and Wyoming. Fresno State won and covered both regular season meetings against UNLV this season. There is a fallacy out there among certain bettors that it’s difficult to beat the same team three times in a season but in this case it isn’t Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Syracuse Orange vs. Pittsburgh Panthers

Syracuse vs. Pittsburgh -3.5 O/U 133.5
Recommendation: Pittsburgh


Former Big East conference rivals the Syracuse Orange and the Pittsburgh Panthers meet at 9 am PT in the second round of the ACC tournament. The glory days of the clashes in Madison Square Garden for the Big East tourney are behind us, but this 8 vs. 9 matchup in our nation’s capital has epic potential. The teams are evenly matched statistically, but recently Pittsburgh has been a tough matchup for Syracuse. The Panthers have won the last four in the series and 14 of 20 under head coach Jamie Dixon. The Orange lost both games to Pittsburgh this season by a total of 25 points, mostly because of the second half performance and rebounding margin. In the second half of both games this year, Pittsburgh outscored the Orange 78-55. The Panthers shot 52% in the second half and held the Orange to 36%. Pittsburgh also crushed Syracuse on the boards by a staggering 86-48, while outscoring Syracuse 34-6 in second-chance points. Both teams have struggled down the stretch with the Orange losing four of five, while Pittsburgh has dropped three of its last four. Throwing out the fallacy that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Toledo Rockets at Eastern Michigan Eagles

Toledo -2.5 at Eastern Michigan O/U 155.5
Recommendation: Over


Quick turnaround spot for these teams who just met last Friday night in Toledo. That 79-75 home loss as -9 favorites marked the second time this season that the Rockets lost outright to Eastern Michigan. Now favored for the third time in this series this season, Toldeo has the ultimate double revenge situation going for them tonight. The question is whether they can exact that revenge or is this just a bad matchup for them. There has been no trouble offensively for Toledo against the Eagles as they’ve averaged 80 points per game shooting 46.4% in one game and 50.8% in the other. They’ve been tremendous from beyond the arc going 17-of-37 45.9% and the tandem of C Nathan Boothe and G Jonathan Williams have scored 85 points shooting 32-of-53%. While the offense has been great, the defense has been a disaster. They’ve allowed Eastern Michigan to shoot 54.1% from the field and 51.6% from three point range. The Eagles number of offensive weapons has been problematic for Toledo as they’ve had four double digit scorers in each game. Sixth man Raven Lee has single handedly Read more

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

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In Part I of this article last week, I took a basic look at the profile of the past 16 NCAA champions.  From that profile, I was able to make a short list of potential champs in 2016, consisting of the following 16 teams:  Miami, North Carolina, Virginia, Kansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Villanova, Xavier, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan State, Purdue, Oregon, Utah, Arizona and Texas A&M.

The next step in the elimination process is to look at the team’s records away from home. The NCAA championship is not won on a team’s home floor.  Even with a favorable location one weekend, a team is still going to have to win four neutral site games in order to cut down the nets in Houston on April 4th.  And the best predictive evidence that I’ve seen for future success in neutral or hostile environments is previous success is neutral or hostile environments.  

In most years, we’ll find a sub .500 road Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Oklahoma State remains short on bodies

03.04.2016     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Keep an eye out for the status of Oklahoma State's Jeffrey Carroll (illness) and Leyton Hammonds (finger). Both players missed Monday's game against Iowa State as the Cowboys managed only 50 points due to an ultra-depleted roster. OSU is currently +4.5 against Texas.


“We’re going to have five out there,” Ford said Wednesday. “Now, I don’t know which five at times, but whatever five we have out there, I expect them to play hard.”

“You’d be lying if you didn’t say it was frustrating at times, but you don’t let it get you down,” Ford said. “You don’t let it interfere, you’re trying to prepare with the guys who are playing. That’s kind of my mindset for the coaching staff and all the players.”
