College Basketball Betting: Injuries and suspensions make Oklahoma State-Texas tricky handicap

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oklahoma State at Texas -4 O/U 145.5

Losers of four straight, Oklahoma State heads to Texas sans Marcus Smart who was suspended for three games. According to Sagarin, and with Texas' home court worth 4 points, the game is a pick 'em. Ken Pom has Texas -2. Both power ratings based on teams being at full strength. Keep in mind the Texas may be without Jonathan Holmes (13.1 ppg, 7.5 rpg). He had an MRI on his knee over the weekend and is listed as a game time decision.


“We have opportunities for players to step up,” Ford said. “This is going to give an opportunity for some of them who haven’t been playing quite as much to pick up the

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Arkansas State Red Wolves

Western Kentucky at Arkansas State -3
Recommendation: Arkansas State


Despite the current six-game streak Western Kentucky is on, I prefer the short favorite in a second time around scenario where revenge is applicable. In the first meeting between these teams, Western connected on nine three pointers en-route to a hard fought double overtime 82-77 win as 5-point favorites. That push is obviously a bit misleading since ASU played the Hilltoppers even for 45 minutes on the road. The 27 points earned on three’s is a bit misleading as well since WKU hoisted 31 which resulted in 29% overall from beyond the arc. Where ASU was firmly beaten that night was on the boards as the Hilltoppers posted a 51-37, +14 rebounding edge. Combine that with the fatigue factor of having a shorter bench and the fouling out of starting F Kirk Van Slyke and you can conclude that Arkansas State just had nothing left at the end. Expect tonight to be a different story as the Red Wolves are well rested (haven’t played in a week) and they figure to have starting forward Kendrick Washington (56.2 FG%) back in the lineup (listed as probable). I’m somewhat skeptical Read more

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

02.10.2014     07:56 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week I wrote about the four best pointspread teams in the country in college hoops this year – Cleveland State, Villanova, Wichita State and Utah. Between the four, they combined to go 7-1 ATS over the past week, continuing to cover spreads even after doing so consistently for the past three months. In other words, the markets still haven’t caught up with these teams.

This week, I’m taking the opposite approach; examining the very worst pointspread teams in all of college basketball. Why are they so bad against the spread? Will they continue to be money losers as February rolls into March? And what statistical profile do these teams have in common that will help us identify them as early as possible next year? Let’s take a look!

I did a version of this column last year at this same time (second week of February). At that time, the single worst pointspread team in all of college basketball was Indiana-Purdue Indianapolis, abbreviated IUPUI. This year, IUPUI isn’t the single worst pointspread team in college hoops only because they’re tied with South Alabama and LaSalle at the bottom of the ATS Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Creighton Bluejays at St. John's Red Storm

Creighton at St. John's +2.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: St. John's


After losing five straight games, including a pair of nail-biters at the end of the slump, St. John's has caught fire. Any opinions on the Steve Lavin era in Queens are incomplete, and, if he has it his way, those thoughts from the peanut gallery will be of a positive nature.

Lavin took over at UCLA for Jim Harrick after his drama led to his pre-Athens demise in 1996-97, leading the Bruins to five consecutive Sweet 16 appearances and six straight Tournament bids before the wheels came off in a disastrous 2002-2003 year that prompted his dismissal.

Lavin, a Gene Keady protégé who paid his dues at Purdue as an assistant from 1988-1991, is in his fourth season at St. John's. He took the Red Storm to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in a decade in his initial campaign in Queens. However, Lavin was diagnosed with prostate cancer the following year and missed most of the 2011-12 campaign, a season in which the Red Storm failed to qualify for the postseason.

Following an NIT bid last year, the pressure was on for the Johnnies coming into Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Northwestern Wildcats

Nebraska at Northwestern -2.5 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


It’s Saturday and that means another opportunity to bet Northwestern under the total. And the bonus is it got played up off of the opener of 117 to 119.5 which to me is crazy. Yes, we aren't getting the value of two weeks ago but based on the projected pace of this game, it'll take quit an effort by both squads – and some help from the refs and perhaps an overtime or two – to top 120 points. We know the Wildcats are super-slow and have played pretty good defense. And let's not forget; Northwestern is an amazing 5-5 in conference play so I doubt they would make dramatic changes mid-season. As for Nebraska, head coach Tim Miles seems to fully understand what is going to take place, "It’s going to be a slow game on Saturday,” Miles said. Well said, Tim. The Cornhuskers don't really have much of an identity – sometimes they play fast, other times they look to Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 2-7-2014

Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After missing seven straight games with a foot injury, Michigan State senior center Adreian Payne returned Thursday night in an 82-67 home win over Penn State at Breslin Center. Payne scored 12 points, grabbed three rebounds, dished out two assists and blocked one shot in 18 minutes of playing time. However, starting guard Keith Appling couldn't go against PSU due to a wrist injury. Appling, who averages 15.0 points and 4.9 assists per game, is 'questionable' for Sunday's game at Wisconsin. Also, Branden Dawson (hand) remains out and isn't expected to be back until early March.

Florida freshman center Chris Walker made his debut in Tuesday's non-covering home win over Missouri. Walker played only seven minutes, scoring four points with a pair of dunks and two blocked shots. Look for his minutes to gradually increase as he becomes more comfortable with what the Gators are running on both ends of the court.

Minnesota leading scorer Andre Hollins returned from a sprained ankle suffered on Jan. 22 to play in Wednesday's 77-74 overtime loss at Purdue. Hollins had missed back-to-back games (both defeats). He played 36 minutes and finished with eight points, four Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: ACC pace of play remains slow

02.07.2014     06:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on the slow tempo of ACC play this year. Two-thirds of the league is averaging less than 63 possessions per game and three squads are below 60.


“It’s whatever a coach feels comfortable with,” said North Carolina coach Roy Williams, whose club is the lone ACC representative in the tempo top 20. “I want to play a lot faster than we’re playing right now, it frustrates me that I can’t get us playing faster, yet the other team has a great deal to say about that. When they want to spend more time with shot clock, it does make it difficult. If it’s better players, higher-caliber teams, it’s harder to get them out of their pace.”



ACC Conference Play Tempo - 2014/13
Boston College - 61.1/63.5
Clemson - 58.2/62.0
Duke - 62.5/67.7
Florida State - 61.8/63/3
Georgia Tech - 64.8/67.0
Maryland - 68.2/67.6
Miami - 56.7/64.0

College Basketball Betting Free Play: St. Mary's Gaels at Loyola Marymount Lions

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
St. Mary's -5 at Loyola Marymount
Recommendation: St. Mary's


We’ve got a maximum motivational spot for the road favorite here.  And St. Mary’s is matched up against a home underdog that isn’t playing any defense, has lost whatever limited confidence they have and hasn’t been covering pointspreads all year.

The Gaels hadn’t played on the road in nearly a month when they travelled to San Diego last Thursday. The Toreros slowdown style really frustrated St. Mary’s as they were held to a season low 43 points.  Then BYU went uptempo on St Mary’s on Saturday and blew the Gaels out of the gym – a quality foe at the top of their game.  St. Mary’s is too good to suffer through extended losing streaks in this very mediocre WCC conference; primed to hammer somebody tonight. 

And Max Good’s Lions are an easy team to hammer.  St. Mary’s beat them 89-61 just two weeks ago; dominating the game in every possible way.  The Gaels won both meetings last year by double digit margins as well.  A two game losing streak ensures full focus against a Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Washington Huskies at Utah Utes

Washington at Utah -9 O/U 141
Recommendation: Utah


I used Utah in a very similar spot two weeks ago as a Sportsmemo free play when they returned home off multiple road losses and responded in a big way by blowing out USC 84-66 as 10.5-point home favorites. They should be sitting on a good effort again as they return home following three straight losses on the highway at Arizona, Arizona State and Colorado. They lost those games by a combined 17 points including a tough OT loss vs. Colorado. The Utes are a dominant 14-1 at home thanks to 50.3% FG and 36.2% from the perimeter. Delon Wright leads the team with 16.1 ppg but Jordan Loveridge and Brandon Taylor are two other viable scoring options. Utah has also performed very well defensively at home holding foes to 40.8% FG and just 31.9% from deep.

Washington is very inconsistent – fully capable of hanging tough with Arizona and beating the likes of Colorado and Oregon but also capable of getting Read more
