College Basketball Handicapping: Georgetown plays host to Kansas during finals week

12.10.2014     06:00 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's that time of year when finals pop up before the holidays. Georgetown is in the middle of taking exams as it gears up for tonight's rematch against Kansas. The Jayhawks won last year's meeting, 86-64, in Lawrence.


"So much of the lessons learned in that gym, in this sport, in any sport, carry over throughout life, and life isn’t always convenient,” Thompson said. “You can’t always schedule things when you want them, so just the understanding that’s life. Life comes at you that way, and you have to be prepared, and you still have to perform in all areas.”

College Basketball Betting Free Play: IUPUI Jaguars at Xavier Musketeers

IUPUI at Xavier -25.5 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


To say that Xavier has fallen in love with offense would be an understatement. The Musketeers are averaging over 85 ppg despite playing only one (Northern Arizona) truly lower level squad. They play their weakest opponent to date this evening with IUPUI coming to town. The Jaguars have at times played respectable with an overtime loss to Indiana State and three-point loss to Georgia State. They were also blown out however against Purdue and Evansville. It is the Purdue game that caught my attention. In the first half, there was a lot of pace and a lot of points with the Boilermakers leading 48-38. Matt Painter probably wasn't all too excited about allowing nearly 40 in a half on their home court as IUPUI could manage only 19 points in the second half. Xavier hasn't shown the ability to completely stifle a team. Quotes from players and coaches recognize that the offense-first mentality won't cut it in Big East play but eight games into the season, it is clear that Xavier doesn't have much of a defensive identity. An unlike Purdue, Xavier hasn't shown any signs of backing off late. In blowout home Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Kentucky comfortable playing ugly basketball

12.05.2014     10:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The always candid John Calipari talks about the ugly nature of Kentucky's games thus far. They've gone under the total in six of seven games but note that tonight's total vs. Texas is nearly 10 points lower than any total this season.


“You could do the old stuff that they used do at Loyola, you stick one guy down the other end and then they still hold the ball, put two guys down the other end, say, shoot it,” Calipari joked. “But I like this. It makes us grind it out. It makes us have to stay in a stance 30 seconds, it makes us have to put more pressure. You can't let them hold the ball 35 seconds and get an easy shot at the end of a clock. Then what happens, if they're holding it and they take a tough shot, is that you run it right down at them, they start wearing down.

“I just say, hey, if that's how you want to play, that's fine,” Calipari said. “We're trying to be more playmakers off the ball, trying to get them to do that. In other words, deflect the ball from the guy you're

Quick hitter thoughts on Saturday's marquee college basketball games.

Virginia at VCU - Rematch of last year's game in which VCU waltzed into Charlottesville and escaped with a 59-56 win after trailing by 6 with two minutes to go. UVA committed 19 turnovers in the loss; something that is likely to be shored up even with this game taking place in Richmond. If VCU isn’t forcing turnovers and/or running/knocking down threes in transition, they become very beatable.

Gonzaga at Arizona - Interesting to see how the Zags matchup against Arizona's size and athleticism. They were completely overwhelmed in last year's 84-61 NCAA Tournament loss. I give them a shot however with Arizona simply not having the offense to pull away from top level competition: see close wins over Kansas State and San Diego State. Cats have a tendency to build leads, sit on the ball, and let the defense take over. Bound to backfire at some point.

Wisconsin at Marquette - Sloppy game by the Badgers in Wednesday's home loss to Duke. The Blue Devils are really good but once again, Wisky had issues against an athletic team. Give Read more

Florida at Kansas
Recommendation: Kansas -4 1st half


Following Florida's early season home loss to Miami, Billy Donovan was very candid in saying there was no way his team was "top 10" caliber. At least not yet. Since that defeat, things have not improved with an overtime win over UL-Monroe, overtime loss vs. Georgetown, 9-point win over UAB, and 11-point loss vs. a very flawed North Carolina squad. And while the defensive numbers are solid, it's the offensive production that is a major concern. And rightfully so considering the loss of Prather, Wilbekin, and Young. In its last four games, Florida's "best" offensive performance was a 0.95 ppp effort vs. UAB. They spent the last week of practice trying to iron out the kinks but a true road game against a top-tier defense doesn't suggest an immediate turnaround. Kansas meanwhile has looked sharp since losing to Kentucky a few weeks back. They posted dominant wins over Rider, Rhode Island, and Tennessee, and last time out put the clamps down on Michigan State in the second half of a 61-56 win. Look for the the Jayhawks to come out strong and take advantage of Florida's early season Read more

College Basketball Betting News: End of the game shenanigans help teaser bettors

12.04.2014     02:12 PM     Printer Friendly
This is funny but despite various claims (Deadspin comments) that it impacted the spread, it did not. Portland opened -11 vs. Portland State and closed -9.5. As you can see by the video, the Pilots were up 14 and trying to run out the clock when a PSU player pulled the old fake a handshake and steal the ball for an easy dunk routine. They counted the bucket and the game landed 12. The only betors potentially impacted were those who teased +9.5 to +13.5. If that was you, congrats, you won the first the first leg of one of the dumbest types of bets on the board.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Temple Owls at St. Joseph's Hawks

Temple -2 at St. Joseph's O/U 124
Recommendation: Temple


Constantly interested in fading this St. Joseph’s team which appears to be one of the more difficult projects Phil Martelli has had to put together. Martelli was very candid prior to the Gonzaga disaster about his team’s lack of offense and how he would have to be creative in order to generate points. The solution was to try and get easy open floor baskets to cover up the massive deficiencies in their half-court offense. St. Joe’s needs to score off of turnovers and attack before the opposing defense can set up. However, the way their roster is currently constructed it’s difficult to execute that type of game plan. The Hawks average offensive passion time ranks 313th among Division 1 teams and they have struggled to score being held to less than 60 points in four of their first six games. Their game plan for point production figures to be made even tougher tonight against Temple which fundamentally can negate what St. Joseph’s wants to do. The Owls prefer pace and are better equipped to get easy baskets because of their sizeable backcourt advantage. Veteran senior Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Ohio State Buckeyes at Louisville Cardinals

Ohio State at Louisville -8 O/U 135.5
Recommendation: Louisville


This marks the first real test of the year for the young Ohio State Buckeyes. Thus far, the Buckeyes have feasted on weak competition at home, winning all five of their games by wide margins. Their stiffest test came against a rebuilding Marquette team on November the 18th, a game they won 74-63. This marks a completely different challenge, as they not only face the first team that is better than they are, they do so on the road in a very hostile environment.

Ohio State is relying heavily on two freshmen and a sophomore that didn’t play much as a freshman and a couple of seniors. Freshman guard D’Angelo Russell is their leading scorer but he could wilt in the face of the Louisville pressure. He had seven turnovers against Marquette and four against James Madison, the two most athletic teams he has faced, and the pressure of the Cardinals will be much, much more intense than those teams.  Senior guard Shannon Scott will be the primary ball handler for the Buckeyes, but he will have to have some help and none of the other guards on the roster have any Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Charlotte 49ers vs. South Carolina Gamecocks

Charlotte vs. South Carolina -2.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Over


If you've watch any college basketball this season you'll notice a lot of low scores and game going under the total. The betting markets are pretty much blind betting every game under the total off of the opener. Any rightfully so as slow pace, lack of fouls, and zone defense seem to be the new trend, especially in power conference play. This however presents opportunities to play overs on cheaper prices when you can find games that project to play fast with so-so defenses. I think we have the with South Carolina and Charlotte. The 49ers are the quintessential over team: good offense, fast pace, average defense. We saw it yesterday when they produced 166 points in regulation against Penn State (Charlotte won 106-97 in 2OT). The Gamecocks meanwhile have played three relatively slow paced, low scoring games against North Florida, Baylor, and Cornell. North Florida runs but doesn't match up well vs. bigger more athletic teams. Baylor and Cornell tend to play slow. Frank Martin's team typically play at an above average pace and while projected to be a better defensive team they still grade Read more
