College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State seeks former mojo vs. Iowa

Iowa at Michigan State -5 O/U 148.5

Losers of six of its last 10, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo is calling for two-a-day practices to make up for all of the lost time due to injuries. Tonight's game against Iowa marks Senior Night for Adreian Payne and Keith Appling. The Spartans were as cheap as -3.5 last night but have since been bet up to -5 at most offshore sportsbooks.


"It sounds brutal, and someone will read it and say, 'What is this idiot doing?' but we've missed 150 (collective) practices," Izzo said. "We've got to make up for it somehow."

College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State with strong track record off of a loss

Michigan State -5 at Purdue O/U 140

For the last month, Michigan State has traded off wins and losses as it enters tonight's game at Purdue off a 60-51 home defeat vs. Nebraska. Over the last two regular seasons, the Spartans are 10-2 SU, 8-3 ATS (one game was not lined) off of a loss. MSU has also been a beast on the road, covering seven of its last eight contests. Keith Appling was expected to miss extended time but played 19 minutes against the Cornhuskers. He's reportedly good to go for tonight.


“I have five Big Ten games left in my final go-round as a Spartan,” he said, “and I plan on playing in all five of them.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Michigan State Spartans

Northwestern at Michigan State -14 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


Thanks to a big push towards the over I see no reason not to play Northwestern under the total...again. In listening to Chris Collins, it is clear the Wildcats have zero depth and as a result must slow down the pace of the game and focus nearly all of their attention on playing defense and keeping the game close. Offensively, Northwestern has topped a point per possession once in Big Ten play whereas they've failed to top 0.90 in 8 out of 11 games. On the road against arguably the best defense in the league, it'll be a struggle to top 50 points. Michigan State meanwhile has had its issues offensively due to injuries. Tom Izzo noted that the team's desire to push the pace has been hampered because of not being able to play with the ideal personnel. The first meeting featured 94 points and 54 possessions. Even with drastic improvement on a number of fronts, topping 120 will be Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State says guarding Northwestern will be easier

01.15.2014     07:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Near jubilation was the mood for Michigan State when asked about preparing for Northwestern. Multiple Spartans talked about their hatred of having to defend the Princeton offense which the Wildcats run very little of under first-year head coach Chris Collins. In the previous two meetings, Northwestern posted 1.11 and 1.25 points per possession. This year's Wildcats haven't sniffed that mark since mid-December – they won 49-43 (0.83 ppp) last time out against Illinois. Note that MSU big man Adreian Payne was downgraded to doubtful for tonight's game.


"I had to guard it last year as a freshman and I hated it," shooting guard Gary Harris said. "I'm glad they got that out of there, it's a lot easier for us, not so frantic."

"I'm definitely happy (that the Princeton offense) is gone because it would have been tough trying to guard our scout team. They always do a great job when it comes to being

NCAA Tournament Betting Recap: Duke dispatches Sparty, Florida sends Cinderella packing

The first half of Duke/Michigan State went pretty much the way you would expect. Duke had to hit treys to compete. Seth Curry was 6 of 7 all by himself in the first 20 minutes. Michigan State dominated the inside. Duke led thanks to their big edge in treys.

In the second half, Duke played very good inside defense while Michigan State kept forcing up bad shots. That led to a 13 minute dry spell that saw the Spartans only make one field goal from about 17 minutes left to about 4 minutes left. Academic after that. I usually blast Duke’s inside defense. They really did a good job here of blocking shots and denying good looks when it mattered down the stretch.

Duke 71, Michigan State 61

2-Point Percentage: Michigan State 45%, Duke 42%

3-Point Shooting: Michigan State 3/12, Duke 7/18

Free Throws: Michigan State 18/24, Duke 24/26

Michigan State vs. Duke -2 O/U 134

An out of conference rivalry will be renewed Friday night as Duke and head coach Mike Krzyzewski challenge Michigan State and Tom Izzo.  Much will be made about Izzo’s 1-6 record against Coach K but I view that “trend” as mostly meaningless in this particular matchup.  Last weekend’s efforts were much more impressive for Duke than Michigan State.  Despite foul trouble, the Blue Devils took care of business by cruising past Creighton, 66-50.  Creighton was one of the more impressive teams in the tournament – extremely well-coached and prepared – so I give Duke credit for holding the Blue Jays to 50 points. 

Meanwhile, the Spartans roughing up Memphis in their backyard was hard to take seriously.  Memphis once again played scatterbrained basketball and head coach in Josh Pastner was up against it to put it kindly.  Of course, the referees let Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting Recap: Michigan State, Butler More Dominant Than Final Scores

Michigan State crushed Valparaiso in Thursday’s first finisher. But, the final victory margin of 11 points doesn’t tell the story. Michigan State led 32-12 in the first half, 49-22 in the second half, and still by 21 with 2:17 left. Butler actually had the larger victory margin in their 12-point win over Bucknell. They had to surge late to get there…but that was only because they were a horrible 2 of 16 on treys until making their last bomb.

Starter vs. starter, superiority was pretty clear for both favorites…

Michigan State 65, Valparaiso 54

2-Point Percentage: Valparaiso 41%, Michigan St. 47%

3-Point Shooting: Valparaiso 7/25, Michigan St. 6/15

For bettors, 2012-12 College Basketball season tips off in less than an hour

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Technically, the 2012-13 college basketball season has already officially started (IUPUI cruised past Utah Valley!) but the big boys – the games we can bet on – are set to tip-off in about an hour. And rather than make it easy on bettors, we're stuck with trying to handicap a game being played at military base in Germany and another on an aircraft carrier.

Michigan State-UConn gets underway at 2:30 pm PT at Ramstein Air Force Base in Reinland, Germany. The Spartans saw the early money as they lined climbed to -8.5 but some buy-back has it settled in at -7.5/-7. According to Bookmaker, 60% of bets have been placed on Sparty while 65% are on the UNDER.

At 4 pm PT, Ohio State hooks up with Marquette on the deck of the USS Yorktown in Charleston, South Carolina. Temperatures expect to be in the low 60's with little to no wind. The Buckeyes opened -5, were bet up to -7, and are currently -6/-6.5. The total was smoked down from 139.5 to 131.5.

Sweet Sixteen Betting Notes: Louisville wants fast pace against Michigan State

Louisville vs. Michigan State -5 O/U 125

Louisville is once again saying it wants to push the pace against Michigan State. The Cardinals have been all over the board this postseason in terms of its possessions per game. In the second round of the Big East Tournament, they played to 83 possessions against Marquette but turned right around and played 56 and 59 possessions against Notre Dame and Cincinnati. In the first round against Davidson, there were 67 possessions while only 58 in the win over New Mexico. The other issue with playing Louisville over the total is that while the pace may be there, the shooting and scoring may not. They've averaged over a point per possession in only four of their last 10 games.


So it's good that everybody is coming back, getting healthier.  Everybody just said that we had to play a new style of basketball.  We

NCAA Tournament Free Pick: Saint Louis Billikens vs. Michigan State Spartans

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Saint Louis +7.5 vs. Michigan State O/U 124
Recommendation: Saint Louis


Michigan State is top-tier team, but I believe they are in for a tough one today. Their superior defense can be matched by a Saint Louis stop unit that requires patience, precision passing and careful ball handling. Lower-scoring game expected with Michigan State allowing just 59 ppg on 38% shooting and 29% from the three-point line.  The Billikens allowed just 59 ppg in A-10 play and after watching our outright underdog winner on SLU over red-hot Memphis you have to be impressed with their ability to dictate tempo and play defense. Saint Louis holds opponents to a low offensive rebounding rate (28%) which is a great match-up against the Spartans’ strength on the boards. Point guard Kwamain Mitchell gives them a premier floor leader, ball handler and passer who can score. Add in some solid outside shooters to a tough team and the Billikens are capable of taking this one to the wire.

Fairway Jay is a recognized leader and one of the sports industries insightful point spread prognosticators. His top-rated Big Drive CBB selections hit over 55% this season on Read more
