College Basketball Handicapping: Houston returns two starters, Louisville without Jones

01.16.2014     01:25 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot of comings-and-goings for tonight's Houston-Louisville matchup. According to Sports Options, UH's Danuel House (15.6 ppg) who hasn't played since November has been upgraded to probable. Teammate LJ Rose (10.1 ppg) is also probable after missing the last five games.

As for Louisville, Chris Jones (11.3 ppg) will miss tonight's game due to an oblique injury. Freshman Terry Rozier will start in his place. Rick Pitino also said Wayne Blackshear will not start and instead come off the bench due to his foul-prone nature. 

The Cardinals opened -18.5 but have since been bet down to -17.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: USC Trojans at Utah Utes

USC at Utah -10.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Utah


The Utah Utes should be sitting on a good effort tonight as they return home following a pair of tough road losses by a combined five points. The Utes are a dominant 12-1 on this court on the season with the one and only loss coming in OT against Oregon. The Utes numbers offensively away from home are not great but on their home floor, they are connecting at a very impressive 50.7% FG rate including 36.5% from the perimeter. Jordan Loveridge leads the team with over 16 ppg but Delon Wright and Brandon Taylor are two other viable scoring options who average in double figures. Utah has performed very well on defense on their home court as well holding foes to 39.9% shooting and just 30.1% from the perimeter.

Things have unravelled lately for Andy Enfield’s USC Trojans. USC has been blown out in three straight games to open the month suffering awful losses by 34 at UCLA and a pair of blowout losses on their home court by 19 to Arizona State and 20 to top-ranked Arizona. Utah isn’t as good as those squads but it still waves a major red flag. The biggest issue for USC is their lack of Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: South Carolina Gamecocks at Texas A&M Aggies

South Carolina +7 at Texas A&M
Recommendation: South Carolina


No denying the strong effort level being put forth by the youthful Gamecocks of late so I fully expect that with ample time to prepare they’ll bring it once again tonight. The question becomes is that enough to overcome slip under the +7 underdog price. Having three days of preparation figures to help the Gamecocks with the immediate style change facing them in this game. Last Saturday’s opponent LSU plays very fast and currently sits at #46 in the nation according to the KenPom adjusted tempo rankings. Their 73.9 possessions per game is six more than the 67.9 averaged by Texas A&M which sits at #300. South Carolina did have some turnover problems committing 19 in the high octane LSU contest but they were able to negate that by forcing 19 of their own. It’s difficult right now to say what type of style they’re more adept at playing because their performances have been so scattered but it’s apparent they’re capable of being competitive at any tempo.

Texas A&M is a confident group now sitting at 2-0 in SEC play off a pair surprising Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Henderson returns for Ole Miss

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Ole Miss' Marshall Henderson returns for tonight's matchup against LSU after serving a two-game suspension. The Rebels went 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS in his absence.


"It's difficult, from a rhythm standpoint," coach Andy Kennedy said. "Very difficult. We just dealt with it as best as we could. He'll be back with us Monday and hopefully he'll continue to be productive for us."

College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State says guarding Northwestern will be easier

01.15.2014     07:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Near jubilation was the mood for Michigan State when asked about preparing for Northwestern. Multiple Spartans talked about their hatred of having to defend the Princeton offense which the Wildcats run very little of under first-year head coach Chris Collins. In the previous two meetings, Northwestern posted 1.11 and 1.25 points per possession. This year's Wildcats haven't sniffed that mark since mid-December – they won 49-43 (0.83 ppp) last time out against Illinois. Note that MSU big man Adreian Payne was downgraded to doubtful for tonight's game.


"I had to guard it last year as a freshman and I hated it," shooting guard Gary Harris said. "I'm glad they got that out of there, it's a lot easier for us, not so frantic."

"I'm definitely happy (that the Princeton offense) is gone because it would have been tough trying to guard our scout team. They always do a great job when it comes to being

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Pittsburgh Panthers at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Pittsburgh -7.5 at Georgia Tech O/U 131
Recommendation: Pittsburgh


Pitt has brought their Big East style of blue collar defensive effort to the ACC, and thusfar, their ACC opponents have not reacted well.  And the Panthers' extended ATS losing streak – they failed to cover a single pointspread as favorites in their six lined games in December – has left them as a relatively undervalued commodity.  

Put those two factors together and you can understand why I’ve got a big ‘buy’ sign on Jamie Dixon’s squad right now.  Let me start with their defense, holding foes to less than 58 points per game on 37% shooting over their last five games.  NC State, Maryland and Wake Forest – all longtime ACC squads – have all been completely shut down against the Panthers stout D.  I’m not expecting a Yellow Jackets squad that has struggled repeatedly when stepping up in class (0-5 SU and ATS at +2.5 or higher) to have an easier time.

Meanwhile, the Panthers offense has exploded this year, raking in the Top 10 nationally in assists per possession, Read more

College Basketball Betting: Indiana tries to figure out Wisconsin

01.14.2014     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indiana head coach Tom Crean hasn't had much success vs. Bo Ryan and Wisconsin with an overall record of 3-14 and 0-10 at Indiana. Even if you eliminate Crean's first three years in Bloomington which were spent rebuilding the program, the Hoosiers have struggled vs. the Badgers. Last year, Wisconsin was able to control tempo with low scoring wins (both as underdogs) of 68-54 and 64-59. Note that in last year's meeting in Bloomington, the Badgers were 10.5-point underdogs. For tonight's game, they are currently 4.5-point road favorites.

College Basketball Handicapping: NCAA still pushing for cleaner play

01.14.2014     07:32 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Most bettors would agree that the play of late in college basketball has been no different from past years yet totals are still being influenced from the foul-fest preseason and thus inflated. But it sounds as if the NCAA is still pleading for cleaner play. Check out the quotes below from the NCAA's officitaing coordinator. The most telling of which is how games are being called tight early while whistles are being swallowed late.


"Post play is as rough as I have ever seen it," Adams wrote. "There is still way too much illegal contact committed against players without the ball."

"I listened to an announcer last night on ESPN say: 'What they [officials] work on and talk about in November and December eventually goes away in January and February, and we get back to playing college basketball.' Our challenge is to prove him wrong."

Adams further noticed that even in games that started out being called properly, "enforcement tends to fade late in close

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas State Bobcats at UL-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas State at UL-Lafayette -8
Recommendation: UL-Lafayette


Huge contrast in style between these teams as fast paced ULL faces turtle-style Texas State. Current KenPom numbers show the Bobcats to rank #333 out of 351 Division 1 schools in adjusted tempo while the Ragin Cajuns are #20. Rapid adjustment is the main concern since ULL is just two days removed from destroying Texas-Arlington 90-70 in a preferred fast tempo game. ULL head coach Bob Marlin is warning his team that tonight is a totally different game and he compared Texas State to former Sun Belt foe Denver. The only opponent ULL has played that’s near the tempo range of Texas State is UL-Monroe and that contests ended in a 103-98 double OT loss. Lafayette got Monroe to go a bit quicker (74-74 at the end of regulation) but had difficulty defending the excellent shooting Warhawks who are hitting 49.4% from the field this season. Texas State does not pose that type of team shooting prowess (only 44% for the season) which could help ULL tonight but it’s also interesting to note that Texas State played at UL-Monroe two days ago and held them to 29% shooting in a 61-36 rout.
