Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: College Basketball Pointspread Juggernauts

02.03.2014     07:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror after Sunday’s huge Seattle blowout, which can only mean one thing – college hoops is on center stage for the next eight weeks. I’ve been writing game previews for ESPN.com/Insider, but I’ve yet to write a true college basketball overview column so far this season. It’s time!

I’m going take a look at the four very best regular board pointspread teams in the country in this week’s column.  Elite level teams aren’t necessarily pointspread winners, and bottom feeders can cash ticket after ticket if the betting markets set numbers that allow them to hang within the number as big underdogs. And the very best pointspread teams tend to be under-the-radar type squads, like the single best ATS team in college hoops thusfar in the 2013-14 campaign.

Cleveland State has a decent record, sitting in a second place tie in the Horizon League standings with a 6-3 mark in conference; 15-9 SU overall. If the NCAA tournament started today, Gary Waters’ Vikings wouldn’t even sniff an at-large bid – they’ll need to win the league tournament to go Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Minnesota Golden Gophers

Northwestern at Minnesota -10.5 O/U 124.5
Recommendation: Under


There are three very strong aspects of Northwestern basketball right now that have them trending under the total. For starters, they've succeeded in playing at a slow pace and shortening the game – a logical choice for a squad that is outmanned talent-wise nearly each and every night. Second is the Wildcats can't shoot. Last time out vs. Wisconsin, NW shot 50% from 2, 44% from 3, and 75% from the FT line – a near perfect performance by their standards that netted them a modest 65 points. Even with that showing, NW checks in at 0.84 ppp – a historical bad rate. Lastly, the Wildcats play sound team defense holding five of their last six foes to 40% or less effective FG%. Minnesota wants to push the pace but finding it difficult in the Big Ten (8th, 65.2 possessions per game). And Andre Hollins, the team’s top offensive option, it out with an ankle injury. I keep waiting Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 1-31-2014

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Minnesota will be without its leading scorer again for Saturday's home game vs. Northwestern. Andre Hollins is recovering from an ankle injury sustained in the opening minute of a home win over Wisconsin on Jan. 22. Hollins averages 15.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.0 steals per game. He was unable to play earlier this week in an 82-78 loss at Nebraska.

Cincinnati senior center Justin Jackson returned to the lineup in Thursday's 69-66 win at Louisville. Jackson injured his ankle early in the first half of Sunday's win at Temple and didn't return. But he looked just fine against the Cardinals, producing 11 points, nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocked shots in 37 minutes of playing time. The Bearcats won outright as nine-point underdogs and hooked up money-line supporters with a +350 return (paid $350 on $100 wagers). If you didn't know already, now you do. Cincy is a legit national-title contender because it rebounds and defends as well as team in the country. And Mick Cronin has a senior leader in Sean Kilpatrick that dropped 29 points on U of L and always wants the rock at crunch time.

Rick Pitino's squad had been without Read more

A couple of college basketball notes worth passing along…

Washington State
Washington State junior guard DaVonte Lacy may return as early as this weekend when they host Washington on Saturday. Lacy has had a rough 2014 so far, missing time following surgery to remove his appendix, returning for 11 minutes and then injuring his ribs. And, without their best scorer and leader, the Cougars have been, well, just awful. While it remains to be seen if he’ll actually play on Saturday or possibly wait until next week, it will likely take some time for him to get back to full strength. And until he is back at full strength, the Cougs really don’t have much of a chance to compete on a regular basis. But, assuming he’s back to full strength by March, and assuming Que Johnson’s time in the spotlight has been put to good use, there’s a chance these guys are talented enough to spring an upset on day one of the Pac-12 Tournament. Maybe not a good chance, but a chance.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Providence Friars at Marquette Golden Eagles

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Providence +4.5 at Marquette O/U 131
Recommendation: Providence


Providence is suddenly one of the hottest teams in the Big East. Ed Cooley’s squad have put it all together recently turning a 0-2 start in conference play into a 5-2 mark thanks to their current 5-0 SU and ATS run. That included wins against Georgetown, St. John’s, Creighton, Butler and Xavier. The Friars’ biggest problem earlier this season was failure to defend and provide leading scorer Bryce Cotton with support. Both of those problems have been remedied as we've seen Providence’s trio of LaDontae Henton, Kadeem Batts and Tyler Harris pour in double digit performances throughout the run and more importantly, amped it up defensively holding foes to 66.2 points per game on just 43% shooting from the field and 20.9% from 3-point range.

Marquette isn’t in the greatest of spots. Yes, they are playing at home but the Golden Eagles are coming off not one, not two, but three overtime games in a row and they came out on the losing end of two of those games. The mini break between Saturday’s contest may help them from an energy standpoint but it Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Florida's Walker cleared to play

01.30.2014     07:32 AM         Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
At long last, the NCAA has reached a conclusion in the case of Florida freshman Chris Walker. The organization announced Wednesday that Walker has been suspended for 12 games and he's cleared to return in UF's home game Tuesday vs. Missouri.

Why? Well, Walker apparently received $270 from two different agents while he was playing AAU basketball during his high-school years. He also got free food, free airfare and hotel lodging from three different people. For this, he must perform 80 hours of community service. The NCAA also indicated that associates of Walker were provided free airfare for eight different trips for his AAU team.

My only question: What big-time high-school recruit doesn't receive all of the benefits listed above?

Anyway, we all know how incompetent the NCAA is, so that's not a big shocker. The good news for Florida is that there's finally a resolution to this mess.

“I appreciate all the support from UF, Coach Donovan and my teammates, and I'm looking forward to helping the team any way I can,” Walker said in a statement.

Walker is a McDonald's All-American who led Holmes Co. High School to a state title in Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Weather causes issues for teams

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When it snows or freezes in the South, things like this and this have a tendency to occur. And for teams traveling that way, getting to the venue can become more difficult than finding a loaf of bread. Needless to say bettors should double check on the travel status of these teams. North Carolina appears to have had some difficulty getting to Atlanta. The Tar Heels arrived at their hotel at 1:45 am.

College Basketball Handicapping: Big East games trending OVER the total

01.29.2014     06:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following the departure of under-the-total type teams like Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, South Florida, and Syracuse as well as the new rule changes, the Big East has seen scoring significantly up compared to last year's historical lows.  In 2013, league games produced 64.2 ppg whereas this season’s average is north of 70 ppg. As of today, there have been 39 conference games with 25 (64%) going over the total.

Team Over/Under in conference play
Creighton 5-4
Villanova 7-1
Xavier 6-1
Providence 5-2
Marquette 3-4
Seton Hall 5-2
Georgetown 4-5
St. John's 5-3
DePaul 5-3
Butler 5-3 (4 OTs)

The incredible streak of Cincinnati unders came to a screeching halt in Sunday's 80-76 win at Temple. The 156 combined went 'over the 133.5-point total with nearly four minutes to spare. The under is now 13-2 for the Bearcats this season and 26-4 in their last 30 games. As I've stated many times, these low-scoring games for Cincy are largely based upon the defensive presence provided by Justin Jackson, who protects the rim and cleans the glass. Jackson injured his ankle early in the first half and did not return.

Nevertheless, the pace for another under looked decent at halftime when Cincy had a 36-26 advantage (1st half total was 62/62.5). But Temple's Dalton Pepper caught fire in the second half, burying seven 3's and scoring 27 of his 33 points. Cincy led by 19 early in the second half, but a triple by Pepper evened the game up with 25 seconds remaining. Mick Cronin's team pulled it out, though, and Sean Kilpatrick finished with 29 points. Jackson's status for Thursday's crucial AAC showdown at Louisville is very iffy. He wasn't able to play in a loss at the Yum! Center last year, either. Before Temple struck for 76 on the Jackson-less Bearcats, they had not given up Read more
