College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 1-24-2014

01.24.2014     10:49 AM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Can you really blame Michigan State junior Branden Dawson? When I'm forced to listen to ESPN analyst Dan Dakich talk (about anything!), I want to pull my hair out. Dakich is the Mark May of college basketball. I disagree with everything that comes out of his mouth and his delivery is the equivalent of fingernails screeching across the chalkboard. During a Thursday film session for the Spartans, Dakich was commenting on a mistake by Dawson, prompting him to slam his hand against a table. The result is a broken bone in his right (shooting) hand that will cause him to miss the next 4-5 weeks. Dawson averages 10.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. He also has 22 steals and 17 blocked shots. Senior center Adreian Payne (16.2 PPG, 7.7 RPG) has missed four straight games with a foot injury, and he is 'doubtful' Saturday vs. Michigan.

Minnesota's leading scorer Andre Hollins (16.2 PPG) suffered a sprained ankle in the opening minutes of this week's home win over Wisconsin. The results of an MRI were negative and there's a chance Hollins will play Saturday at Nebraska. He is listed as 'questionable.'

Alabama played without its second-leading scorer in last night's 68-62 Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: DEFCON 2 alert for Ohio State?

01.23.2014     11:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The sky is falling in Columbus as Ohio State enters tonight's game against Illinois on a four-game losing streak. We seem to remember Louisville losing going through similar struggles last year before closing 19-1 and of course winning a National Championship. The Buckeyes don't look to be on the level though going through a mid-season swoon is pretty much unavoidable at the major conference level. Wisconsin was well on its way to a perfect season according to some and now the Badgers enter this weekend on a three-game slide.  Arizona’s regression is coming as well.


“I think honestly we need a couple to go down for us and regain a little momentum and a little confidence in our stroke,” Matta said. “It’s one of those deals that sometimes the best answer is make a couple and everything sort of takes care of itself.”

College Basketball Gambling: BYU switches point guards, thrives on offense

01.23.2014     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on BYU's decision to switch starting point guards with Kyle Collinsworth taking over for Matt Carlino. The Cougars have won five straight (4-1 ATS) and posted points per possession marks of 1.31, 1.25, 1.28, 1.16, and 1.23 during that span. The Cougars are 4.5-point road favorites at Portland.


"Well, we felt like Kyle was doing a great job in the backup [point guard] role, even though he was starting at the two," Rose explained. "We got ourselves in a couple situations early in games where we just didn’t feel like we were in control of the game like we wanted to be. And so I think that is when we started to lean toward Kyle a little bit."

"Well, I think it has done a lot for our team," said leading scorer Tyler Haws. "It has helped us play more together, I think. And Matt has done a great job coming off the bench. He is is playing more the right way, and sharing the ball. I think everyone feels comfortable with Kyle at the point."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Valparaiso Crusaders at Youngstown Penguins

Valparaiso at Youngstown State -4
Recommendation: Youngstown State


Very good matchup in the Horizon League tonight between a pair of teams that sport identical 3-2 conference records. I am going to side with the home team as the Penguins have surged to a 3-0 SU, 2-0-1 ATS mark in their last three games notching wins against UIC, Cleveland State and Detroit. Youngstown State is playing at its best right now but you could argue that Valparaiso is too as they enter off back-to-back wins against Detroit and Milwaukee. This however will be the Crusaders’ toughest foe of that group.

The key to success against Valpo is being able to score because the Crusaders have been a potent offensive club for years. Youngstown State has certainly the ability to put the ball in the basket. The Penguins have connected at a blistering 47.9% shooting from the floor in their last five games. Kendrick Perry who leads the Horizon League in scoring at 21.2 ppg has carried the mail for Youngstown State. The Penguins feature four players in their starting rotation that average double digits and D.J. Cole isn’t far behind at 8.5 ppg. Youngstown State is by Read more

College basketball Gambling: For Miami Hurricanes, slow, steady, and ugly wins the race

Duke -4 at Miami (FL) O/U 129.5

A few telling quotes from Syracuse players and head coach Jim Boeheim on what it was like to play against Miami. The Orange squeaked out a 49-44 win (49 possessions) in the Carrier Dome earlier this month.


"They'll give everybody trouble," he said. "Since they switched to that matchup, they could have beaten almost everybody they played. I think Miami is as good defensively - or better - than anybody in our league."

"Miami is so good defensively, that you have to play slow against them," he said. "If you can't get turnovers and get runouts, that's the only way to force tempo, but that's hard to do. You can't speed them up."



Hurricanes head coach Jim Larranaga didn't see many options other than to play defense and attempt to shorten the game.


"It's a function of who we are offensively," he said. "We're not a high octane offense. Last year, our goal was to get to 75 points. But that's when

California -7.5 at USC O/U 146
Recommendation: Cal


USC is the worst team in the PAC-12 and it’s not even close. And one of the best ways to make money betting college hoops is to bet against the very worst teams! The Trojans have lost all five of their previous PAC-12 contests thus far by 18 points or more, non-competitive in every game. USC isn’t playing any defense in the post or on the perimeter, allowing opponents to hit more than half their shots against them in conference play. They’re getting crushed on the boards, outrebounded by more than five per game. The Trojans certainly aren’t loaded with offensive creators, held to 41 percent shooting (25 percent from three point range) as they’ve gone 0-5 SU and ATS to start conference play. Nearly 16 turnovers per game hasn’t helped matters, nor has their dismal 63 percent free throw shooting. Right now, Byron Wesley is the only guy that first year head coach Andy Enfield can rely on for points, and even Enfield is struggling, suffering two of his three lowest scoring games of the season in the Trojans last two losses. While USC is struggling, Cal has emerged as an Read more

College Basketball Betting: Wake Forest tries to get over the hump on the road

Wake Forest at Virginia Tech -1.5

Wake Forest enters tonight's game at Virginia Tech on a 17-game game ACC road losing streak dating back to 2012. Part of the problem – outside of the Demon Deacons not being very good for much of that span – is inexperience. Last year they had one of the youngest teams in the country and this year's group, while much improved, still features a lot of underclassmen.  Wake dropped its first three road conference games by margins of 23, 15, and 8 though the competition was significantly stronger than tonight's foe, Virginia Tech which has already suffered home losses to South Carolina-Upstate, UNC Greensboro, and Boston College.


"At home, we have extra energy and extra concentration and we feed off the great energy from our fans, and we're in every possession," Bzdelik said. "Whereas on the road, we seem to lose sight of how valuable each and every possession is. One play, a couple plays, can change the course of a basketball game. We just need to focus on every, every single

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Minnesota Golden Gophers at Iowa Hawkeyes

Minnesota +9.5 at Iowa O/U 148.5
Recommendation: Minnesota


Minnesota has played three true road games, compiling a 2-1 record both straight up and against the spread. The Gophers won 74-59 at Richmond and 68-65 at Penn State. The only road setback for Richard Pitino's squad came at Breslin Center in East Lansing on Jan. 11. Minnesota took on Michigan St. as a 10.5-point underdog and led by a 41-36 count at intermission. The Gophers led by as many as 10 in the second half, only to go 13 minutes without making a shot from the field. Nevertheless, they rallied from a six-point deficit with more than two minutes remaining to force overtime. But Minnesota would fall apart in the extra session. In fact, Michigan State outscored the Gophers 16-4 in OT to pull out an improbable spread cover.

The point is that Minnesota should be 3-0 ATS on the road. This afternoon the Gophers take on an Iowa team coming off a big win. Although the Hawkeyes have had a solid week to get ready for their Big Ten rival, they could possibly fall into a letdown scenario here. Minnesota beat Ohio State on Thursday for a big win, but it has had two days to move past Read more
