College Basketball Handicapping: Oregon State's Moreland cleared to play

Oregon State at Colorado -12.5 O/U 148

Oregon State announced center Eric Moreland has been cleared to play after being suspended since the summer. Moreland was originally scheduled to return next week. It is a huge boost for the Beavers as Moreland provides the team a solid interior presence. Last season, Moreland ranked fifth nationally in defensive rebound percentage (27.5). And heading into tonight's game at Colorado, one of OSU's biggest weaknesses was giving up offensive rebounds (35.4%, 290th nationally).

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Bradley Braves at Northern Iowa Panthers

Bradley at Northern Iowa -12
Recommendation: Northern Iowa


I don't like laying double-digits in a conference game any more than the next bettor but until Bradley can turn things around, the fade train rolls on. The Braves went 0-for-December both straight up and against the spread. And the competition was comprised of nothing but fellow mid-majors. Offensively, the Braves struggle to score (0.96 ppp), can't shoot from the outside (28.1% 3-pt.), and are turnover prone (20.2%). Last season, Bradley won one conference road game against bottom feeder Southern Illinois. Their losses were by margins of 15, 31 (Northern Iowa), 10, 34, 17, 20, 11, 8, and 13 (Northern Iowa). Northern Iowa has played a very tough schedule against the likes of Maryland, Iowa State, VCU, and Virginia. The Panthers took their lumps but it was great prep for Missouri Valley play. Of late, we've seen NIU score wins-by-margin at home against VCU and Iona. I'm not going to overthink this one: Bradley has been outmanned and outplayed for much of the season and this is one of their toughest opponents/venues. Chalk time.

College Basketball Gambling: Louisville loses two key contributors from last year's title team

12.30.2013     12:12 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Louisville forward Chane Behanan was kicked off the team for what is being called a violation of university policy. Behanan was a key cog in last year's title run but saw his role reduced to less than 20 minutes per game this season. He did however lead the team in offensive rebounding rate and ranked second in defensive rebounding rate. His departure leaves UL's front court extremely thin. Head coach Rick Pitino also hinted that guard Kevin Ware may redshirt due to a lingering leg injury. The Cardinals open AAC play tomorrow at Central Florida.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Southern Utah Thunderbirds at San Diego Toreros

Southern Utah at San Diego -21.5
Recommendation: San Diego


Southern Utah is arguably the worst DI team in the country. Their losses this year have come by margins of 33, 28, 15 (vs. Riverside at home), 29, 22, and 37. There was some decent competition is that bunch but there was also Northridge and Portland – two teams not that far removed from tonight's opponent San Diego. The Toreros have had a tough schedule of late with competitive losses to New Mexico, San Diego State, and UC Santa Barbara. A quick glance at USD’s resume suggests it isn't capable of laying this type of price with non-blowout wins over Grand Canyon, Morgan State, Greensboro and Southern Illinois. They did however wax Northern Kentucky on the road and trust me when I say all of those aforementioned teams are significantly stronger than Southern Utah. There aren't many of them but the Thunderbirds are a squad that you simply bet against every opportunity in non-conference play. Once Big Sky play starts, you'll see them compete in a handful of contests but tonight there's a class difference and the home squad can name the score.

Nebraska-Omaha at Minnesota -15.5 O/U 156
Recommendation: See write-up


I'm expecting an up-tempo affair tonight with Nebraska-Omaha heading to Minnesota. Omaha is one of the country's fastest teams at nearly 75 possessions per game. And not only do they play fast, but they are also efficient (1.06 ppp, 51.3 effective FG%, 76.5 FT%). On the flip side, they don't play much in the way of defense as Iowa, Drake, Bakersfield and Nevada all topped the 80-point mark. Minnesota first-year head coach Richard Pitino wants to play up-tempo basketball but due to their opponents (a handful of moderately paced teams) and the Gophers' personnel, it had yet to really play out. But there have been signs. Coastal Carolina, who can’t score like UNO, prefers to run and played to 71 possessions (154 points) vs. Minnesota. UM's game against Arkansas produced 160 points and 72 possessions. This game marks a perfect storm of sorts for Minny's offense to unload: at home, vs. a team that likes to run and doesn't play much defense. One thing I've noticed with playing games over that are projected to be up-tempo is that the first half tends to have a nice flow whereas the Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Auburn seeks better defensive effort

12.19.2013     07:33 AM     Printer Friendly

Clemson -5.5 at Auburn O/U 128.5

Auburn head coach Tony Barbee not pleased with his team's defensive effort following a 99-70 loss at Iowa State and a 81-62 loss to Illinois. In 2010, Barbee's last season at UTEP, the Miners allowed 0.90 points per possession which ranked 12th nationally. And despite being outmanned in the SEC, his defense at Auburn had been respectable (1.00, 0.95, 1.00) prior to this year. Clemson has the nation's no. 3 defense (0.91) and plays at an extremely slow pace (61.9). If Auburn responds to Barbee's request, tonight's game has a good chance to go under the total.


“Hopefully (those losses) opened everybody’s eyes that the things that we have to do that need to become our identity, we’re not doing them,” Barbee said. “We’ve got to be a gritty, grimy, Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Manhattan Jaspers at South Carolina Gamecocks

Manhattan at South Carolina -2.5
Recommendation: South Carolina


Pair of potential problems exists here for home-standing Gamecocks who have shown a mixed bag of results in their 2-3 start to this season. The first concern is the 11-day layoff South Carolina has had since playing its last game which was a disastrous 75-52 road loss to no. 7 Oklahoma State. That game magnified the second concern for head coach Frank Martin’s team which is turnovers. South Carolina committed 24 of them against the up-tempo Cowboys which dropped them to 296th in the nation at 14.6 per game. Relentless pressure defense is what Manhattan is predicated on under 4th year head coach Steve Masiello and thus far they’ve forced 14.7 turnovers per game while averaging 7.4 steals. This would appear to be a hand in glove matchup for the Jaspers defense but the return of South Carolina guard Bruce Ellington tonight could help shore up some of the ball handling woes. Ellington (starting WR on SC’s football team) makes his first start and is a backcourt veteran.

These teams have similarities as both have been poor shooting the basketball (42.3% Manhattan, Read more

College Basketball Betting: Oregon welcomes back point guard Artis

UC Irvine at Oregon -13.5

Oregon point guard Dominic Artis and forward Ben Carter are expected to play (not start) tonight's game against UC Irvine after serving nine-game suspensions.


"We'll work them in," Altman said Monday morning. "We've set a rotation early on but we've only played nine games so nothing is set in stone. We're hoping that now we'll have a bit more depth so we can pressure the ball even more defensively."

Cincinnati vs. Pittsburgh (at MSG)
Recommendation: Cincinnati +3 1st half


It is common knowledge that when Cincinnati plays a comparable foe, the Bearcats are going to struggle to put the ball in the basket. But over the last two games, things have gone from not-so-good to historically bad. Against New Mexico and Xavier, the Bearcats shot 23-of-73...from 2-point range! And going up against Pittsburgh is far from an ideal situation for a dramatic turnaround. But while I'm well aware that points will likely be at a premium, what I do expect to improve is Cinci's effort. Every quote you read following last Saturday's loss to rival Xavier wasn’t so much on the score but the lack of fight – which under Mick Cronin is rarely an issue.

“It’s inexcusable,” said Cronin, who’s now 3-5 vs. Xavier. “We’re not tough enough on the defensive end. We’re not tough enough to get the ball to the open man when teams are doing whatever they’re doing defensively to us. Really, anything that involves toughness right now is a real big problem for our team.”

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 12-13-2013

12.13.2013     07:50 AM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Brian Edwards

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The status of North Carolina’s P.J. Hairston and Leslie McDonald remains uncertain. Both remain suspended indefinitely and the only certainty is that neither will play Saturday vs. Kentucky.

Oregon’s Ben Carter and Dominic Artis are expected to make their season debuts Tuesday vs. UC Irvine. Both have been suspended so far while the Ducks have run out to an 8-0 straight-up record and a 7-0 against-the-spread mark. The ‘over’ is also 6-0 for Oregon. Both will miss their ninth and final game Saturday vs. Illinois.

Florida stormed out to a double-digit lead by forcing 16 first-half turnovers in Tuesday’s home win over Kansas. The Gators hooked up their backers in the 67-61 win as three-point favorites in a game that wasn’t near as close as the final score indicated. A late barrage of 3-pointers by KU’s Andrew Wiggins and abysmal free-throw shooting by UF made the final seem close. UF was playing for the first time all season with its full compliment of players. Scottie Wilbekin and Kasey Hill both returned from sprained ankles a little sooner than anticipated. Wilbekin was the best player on the court against the Jayhawks, Read more
