College Basketball Betting Free Play: Boston College Eagles at Florida State Seminoles

Boston College at Florida State -6.5
Recommendation: Florida State


Boston College’s schedule has been a beast having played 10 of its 12 ACC games against opponents with a .500 or better conference record. Sandwiched in they also faced 17-5 and probable NCAA Tournament bound Harvard. That baker’s dozen culminated Monday afternoon with a double overtime game versus Miami (postponed from the day before) which not only ended in a heartbreaking loss, but also shortened the preparation and rest time for this contest.  There’s only so much in BC’s tank right now and traveling on short rest off of a tough loss sets this one up as a fade situation. BC’s rotation (only seven deep) saw all three top scorers go 43 or more minutes on Monday afternoon with team leader Olivier Hanlan playing 49 of the 50 minutes. It’s an excellent spot for host FSU to take advantage of a fatigued opponent which has now dropped six straight contests. Leonard Hamilton’s group is on a current three-game ATS win streak and even broader 7-1 ATS mark over their last eight. During the impressive money making run, only ACC elite Duke and Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Louisville suspends starting point guard Jones

02.18.2015     08:12 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Louisville will be without the services of starting point guard Chris Jones (suspended) against Syracuse this evening. Jones was the team's leader in assists and one of only three UL players who showed the ability to knock down the occasional three-pointer. Making matters worse are some defensive concerns for the Cardinals who gave up 74 points (1.12 points per possession) in last Saturday's home loss to NC State. 


“There’s been a lack of intensity on the defensive end. Maybe Coach is right, when our shots don’t fall we don’t want to play defense. We can’t have that. You go into the tournament like that and you’ll be home in the first round. If we miss shots, we can’t let it bother us. We still have to play defense and I don’t see that happening. Honestly, I feel like there are times everybody isn’t on the same page.”

College Basketball Gambling: Seton Hall tries to weather storm

02.16.2015     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things have gotten -- and still may be -- messy for Seton Hall after a player quit and rumors surfaced about a troubled locker room. The Pirates were 15-6, 5-4 but have dropped four straight and play the second of three straight road games at Villanova this evening. Head coach Kevin Willard commended his team for their effort in a spread covering 69-62 loss at Providence on Saturday.


"It's tough coming on the road after having to deal with a lot of B.S. over the last week," Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard said after the loss. "We came on the road to a packed house and I thought we did a good job of battling. (I'm) really proud of this team."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Arizona State Sun Devils at Washington Huskies

Arizona State -2 at Washington O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


Since the departure of Robert Upshaw we've seen Washington take on a completely different identity. The Huskies have been forced to play as many as four guards and an undersized forward and their defense has suffered as a result. Eliminated their game against offensively inept Oregon State and without Upshaw, Washington has allowed 1.20 points per possession in every game. In those four games, teams averaged 84.5 ppg. You also have to question where this team is at mentally after suffering back-to-back blowout losses. Arizona State has been up and down for much of the season but has shown much more ability to score after failing to crack 60 in its first four PAC-12 contests. Over their last seven games, the Sun Devils have averaged 74.1 ppg with a number of those games played at a fast tempo. Both teams aren't even close to being in the postseason discussion and with this being their second game in three days, I don't project much in the way of defensive intensity. Play it over.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at Iowa State Cyclones

West Virginia at Iowa State -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Under


They'll no doubt be a lot of pace and points in this afternoon's West Virginia-Iowa State game but oddsmakers aren't messing around by opening this game 160. It's since been bet down slightly to 158.5 but I see a few factors that make playing the under worth a bet. For starters, Iowa State talked all week about shoring up its leaky defense. That doesn't mean they're going to start holding teams in the 60's as their games are way too fast for that. But at home off of allowing 94 points to Oklahoma, I expect a much better effort. Next, West Virginia doesn't have a very efficient offense. In fact, the Mountaineers are averaging less than a point per possession in Big XII play. And it's important to note that not one WVU Big XII game has topped 158 in regulation. In the first meeting between these two squads there was a fair amount of pace (144 possession) and points 146 but it went under the closing total of 150. Neither team has changed much of all since that game back in mid-January and yet today's total is eight points higher. In order for this game to go over the total you'll need close Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Michigan Wolverines at Illinois Fighting Illini

Michigan at Illinois -6.5 O/U 121
Recommendation: Illinois


Michigan is an injury riddled mess right now; a team that I’m looking to bet against in hostile environments both tonight and moving forward.  The Wolverines are coming off another tight, deflating loss at Indiana over the weekend, their fourth defeat in the last five games.  Two of those losses (Michigan State and Wisconsin) were overtime affairs.  And it’s not going to get any easier for John Beilein’s squad tonight as they travel to Assembly Hall in Champaign to take on the Illini.

Michigan’s injury woes are getting worse, not better.  Four of their five starters played at least 34 minutes at Indiana, and at least part of the reason why the Wolverines have been struggling so much in close games is because they are short-handed, running out of gas in the latter stages of tight contests.  Let’s not forget that this team lost FIVE underclassmen to the NBA over the last three drafts.  Last month, star guard and leading scorer Caris LeVert was lost to a season ending foot injury.  Since then, they’ve lost third Read more

Long Beach State -1 at UC Irvine
Recommendation: Long Beach State


Heartbreaking home setback to Cal-Irvine last Saturday night figures to have Long Beach more than ready to get back in the win column here. The 49ers were up 55-54 and 10 seconds from being tied for first place in the Big West after sinking a three pointer but a UCI layup with 1.4 left in the game put them in a 7-2 tie for second place. Conversely, Santa Barbara rode a miraculous late second half surge to defeat Hawaii five days ago breaking a two-game losing streak. Despite the win, UCSB continued to show how vulnerable they are without star PF Alan Williams who has missed the last five games but is nearing a return to the lineup. Even if Williams should go here in this contest, have to note the fact that the Gauchos were pummeled by Long Beach 69-53 with him playing 27 minutes (17 points, 9 rebounds) back on January 17. In that contest, the 49ers defense swarmed Santa Barbara allowing just 25% FG shooting and they also had a solid 47-35 rebounding advantage. The Gauchos strengths of rebounding and defense are equaled by Long Beach State which makes this a tough matchup for the hosts Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Colorado not there mentally

02.12.2015     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things are getting messy in Boulder with rumblings Colorado has "checked out" on the season. Injuries have killed this squad with Xavier Johnson and Josh Scott missing time. Point guard Askia Booker is also dealing with hip problems. Tad Boyle claims the locker room is fine but the play on the court remains suspect. Last time out, the Buffs were waxed at home by Utah, 79-51.


"We looked checked out," sophomore forward Wesley Gordon said. "I understand them saying we looked checked out. But, I don't think we're checked out. We can't be checked out; we've still got games left.

"We just can't give up and play like we did (Saturday). That was embarrassing. That was very embarrassing."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Tennessee Volunteers at Vanderbilt Commodores

Tennessee +6 at Vanderbilt O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Tennessee


Recent results suggest that Tennessee and Vanderbilt are headed in opposite directions but the reality is these two teams have played a lot of close, competitive basketball where the straight up results appear to be more random than anything. The Commodores enter off back-to-back wins, including a blowout over a wounded South Carolina squad. The Vols meanwhile have lost four of five but those defeats came by margins of 6, 5, 5, and 3. I'd be concerned if this team was getting outplayed but the level of effort is still there night in and night out, they just happen to come out on the losing end. Make no mistake, this team has flaws, particularly on offense but the current price indicates that Vandy is the better of the two squads which I'm not sure is the case. Consider this: Vanderbilt was laying -3 vs. South Carolina this past weekend and now -6 vs. Tennessee. The Gamecocks are for whatever reason still "respected" due to non-conference wins over Oklahoma State and Iowa State. Tennessee is void of any marquee wins but unlike USC, the Vols show up each and every night and have a Read more
