NCAA Tournament Betting News: Miami's Johnson ruled out vs. Marquette

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Marquette vs. Miami-FL -5 O/U 127

Miami center Reggie Johnson (knee) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against Marquette. Johnson had taken on more of a reserve role this season but remained a key contributor on the glass (7 rebounds per game). Marquette was the No. 1 team in the Big East in offensive rebounding percentage (38.4) during league play. The Golden Eagles snagged 31 offensive rebounds in wins over Davidson and Butler.

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Arizona's Miller and Ohio State's Matta go way back

Arizona vs. Ohio State -3.5 O/U 134

You couldn’t find two teams from different conferences that would be as familiar with what the other wants to do more than Arizona and Ohio State. Why is that, you might ask? Head coaches Sean Miller of Arizona and Thad Matta of Ohio State go back over two decades as friends and associates. They were assistants together at both Miami-Ohio and Arizona and Matta gave Miller a gig when he first took over as head coach of Xavier.

When Matta left Xavier for Ohio State his job went to Miller who eventually parlayed his solid run of success with the Musketeers into his current gig at Arizona. These two guys know each other well, they share many of the same philosophies and tactics and they have rosters that really mirror one another. And this isn’t the first time they’ve met in the NCAA Tournament: Who could forget the epic overtime thriller between Xavier and Ohio State back in 2006-07? Miller and the Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapping: Florida Gulf Coast meets Florida in Sweet Sixteen

Florida Gulf Coast vs. Florida -13 O/U 133.5

By now everyone is aware of the Cinderella story of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles who reached the Sweet Sixteen in just their second year of DI basketball. They were very impressive in their first two wins against Georgetown and San Diego State and now have a chance to reach the Elite Eight with a win over Florida.

On paper, it would not appear to be a good matchup for the Eagles as Florida is a solid defensive team that allows just 37.8% from the field and dominates the boards with a +5.3 rebound margin. However, the running and gunning Eagles just faced two teams that had strong defensive pedigrees and destroyed them both.

The interesting thing about FGCU is that they did not hit tons of threes to advance. They really didn’t even take many, which is a common factor in many NCAA tourney upsets. Against Georgetown, FGCU was 6-of-15 from deep and they were 8-of-19 against San Diego State. The vast majority of FGCU’s field goals were on dunks and layups, many of them created by the passing ability and court vision of point guard Brett Comer. He has been the most impressive ball Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting News: Far from pretty, Marquette reaches Sweet Sixteen

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Marquette vs. Miami-FL -5.5 O/U 127

Of the remaining 16 teams in the NCAA Tournament, some will argue that Marquette has been the least impressive – and the most fortunate. Head coach Buzz Williams openly admitted that they could have very easily lost both games. In the first round Davidson's win probability was north of 95% with less than two minutes to go yet Marquette found a way to bury a couple of threes and win by one. Similar situation against Butler as the Bulldogs were seemingly in control of the game late only to let it slip away in the waning seconds. But we give credit to Williams who has now led Marquette to three straight Sweet Sixteen appearances. The third game however has proved to be problematic. In 2011, Marquette was crushed by North Carolina, 81-63. And last year, the Golden Eagles met a Read more

College Basketball Betting: Weather forces Evansville to bus to Canisius

Evansville at Canisius -1.5 O/U 147.5

Here is the crazy story of Evansville's 10-hour bus trip to Buffalo for tonight's CIT Tournament matchup against Canisius.


“Due to weather conditions we aren’t flying and we have to drive ALL the way to New York for our game Tuesday!!” tweeted Aces senior Troy Taylor at about 3 p.m. Sunday, or 24 hours after UE finished off a second-round CIT win over Eastern Kentucky.

“We’ve never had to bus 10-plus hours on such short notice, so it’s kind of exciting just to get that feel for having your team, the coaches and the program,” Ryan said. “You just pick up and go. You don’t know where you’re going next. You just win, and there’s some excitement about who you’re playing next and just stuff like today.

NCAA Tournament Betting Results through the Round of 32

03.25.2013     02:19 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Below is a chart of the betting results for the NCAA Tournament through 52 games. Line history courtesy of CRIS.

Favorite held a small edge at 27-24 against the spread. The James Madison-LIU-Brooklyn game closed a pick 'em.

Of those games that closed with a different line than the opener, the betting markets were "correct" 20 times and "incorrect" 20 times. For example: Miami opened -5 vs. Illinois and closed -7.5. The Hurricanes won 63-59 which meant the markets were "incorrect." Duke opened -4.5 vs. Creighton and closed -6. The Blue Devils won 66-50 and thus the markets were "correct."

Totals trended slightly towards the under at 25-27 O/U (based on CRIS's closing number).

In terms of parlays, the top bet was favorite/under (16 games), followed by underdog/over (14 games). Note that we did not include JMU-LIU which closed as a pk.

Of course a bro bet Florida Gulf Coast at 1000-1 to win the Big Dance

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here is that story you wanted to hear about a dude with a ticket on Florida Gulf Coast at 1000-1 to win the NCAA Tournament.


"My roommate placed a bunch of bets, and this is just the one he randomly gave me," Fredricks said. "I don't think he intended for them to actually win. He has a much larger bet on Florida [FGCU's opponent on Friday] to win the championship, as well as a large wager on the field bet."

Sportsmemo Handicapper Teddy Covers breaks down the Sweet Sixteen

03.25.2013     11:34 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The first weekend of the Madness is in the history books and only 16 teams remain standing in the NCAA Tournament.   The two best conferences in the regular season – the Big Ten and the Big East – proved to be the two best conferences in the Big Dance, sending seven teams to the Sweet Sixteen.  The ACC and the PAC-12 were the only two other conferences to send multiple teams onto the second weekend of the Big Dance. 

This week, I’ll be taking a look at the sixteen remaining teams in the field; assessing their chances for tournament success as the field gets reduced to the Final Four this coming weekend.  Teams are listed in rotation order.

Syracuse is drawing comparisons to the UConn team that won it all two years ago.  The Orange, like the Huskies, slumped down the stretch of the regular season.  Like the Huskies, they came on strong in the Big East tournament, rebuilding their confidence in the process.  Also like UConn, Syracuse has all kinds of NBA ready talent. Michael Carter-Williams, James Southerland and Brandon Triche are all expected to be drafted this spring.  Don’t Read more
