College Basketball Betting Free Play: New Mexico Lobos at Utah State Aggies

New Mexico at Utah State -1 O/U 146
Recommendation: Over


In Mountain West games thus far not involving San Diego State and Nevada (the two best defensive teams in the league), the lowest score was 147 with the other seven ranging from 151-168. Dating back to last season, the Mountain West has been one of the highest free throw shooting conferences in the country. In 2015, the league's FT rate was 40.0 (3rd nationally) and this season just a shade under at 38.5 (5th). It is likely this has something to do with the league's refs but also the makeup of the league as few teams with the exception of SDSU are considering defensively "elite." Good defensive teams don’t foul as the saying goes. Leading the charge is New Mexico who has already attempted nearly 400 free throws (28.2 per game). In the Lobos' season opener against Fresno, they attempted 34 freebies and it resulted in a 78-73 win. They'll have a chance to score points and number of ways tonight as Utah State continues to struggle defensively under head coach Tim Duryea. The Aggies allowed 83 to Boise State and 78 to Air Force in two closes losses to open up MWC play. On the flip Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Arizona Wildcats at California Golden Bears

Arizona at California -2.5 O/U 129
Recommendation: Under


Because of injuries and lack of depth, Arizona has been forced to slow down its tempo this season. Sean Miller even admitted that he's had his team walk the ball up the floor to essentially shorten the game and preserve his players. The Cats do get a boost with the return of Parker Jackson-Cartwright tonight but he'll be limited in terms of minutes and effectiveness. We have a pretty barometer of what to expect from Arizona's offense. The Wildcats faced Michigan State, Butler, Gonzaga and Texas A&M and netted between 62-67 points with all four games 68 possessions or lower. In only one of those games did Arizona top a point per possession. And note that none of those were "true" road games. Tonight's game is and you can make a strong argument California's defense is better than anyone Arizona has faced thus far. All but three of the Golden Bears' opponents this year have been held to below 0.90 ppp. San Diego State was the only team to top a point per possession and did so in large part because of a 31 trips to the free throw line. The Aztecs shot only 37%. And don't sleep on Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Pepperdine Waves at Gonzaga Bulldogs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Pepperdine at Gonzaga -26 O/U 145.5
Recommendation: Over


Pepperdine has played some pretty good offenses this season and in nearly every instance, said offenses had their way with the Waves. Due in large part to a few key injuries, Pepperdine has lost seven straight and during that span allowed 84.8 ppg. A turnaround doesn't look likely this evening as they head to Spokane to take on Gonzaga who owns the 15th-rank offensive efficiency in the country. And when given the chance, the Zags are running more this season with 70 or more possessions in eight games including 82 in last week's 102-65 win over South Dakota. Most of Pepperdine's game have been fairly fast in large part because of playing from behind. And despite being short-handed, the Waves have netted 63 points or more in every game. Getting to 60 is far from a guarantee tonight as Gonzaga counters with some of the best defensive numbers in the country (0.91 ppp allowed). What's likely needed is a margin and based on the pointspread (Gonzaga -26) the second half should feature plenty of garbage time. The Zags with a good shot at hitting 90 tonight which puts the over in play.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UL-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns at Georgia Bulldogs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UL-Lafayette at Georgia -9.5 O/U 152.5
Recommendation: Over


UL-Lafayette is one of the more talented mid-major teams in the country offensively led by the trio of Bryce Washington (15.3 ppg), Frank Bartley (19.1 ppg) and Jay Wright (14.5 ppg). And what I like best about the Ragin Cajuns is most of their point production comes from 2-pointers and the free throw line. When mid-major teams that rely heavily on the three-point shot go on the road to face power conference competition, the offense is vulnerable to struggles. Head coach Bob Marlin's attacking style is proven capable against a better class of opponents. Last season against Miami (FL), Alabama, and UCLA, ULL scored 77, 93, and 80 respectively. To open up 2016, they had difficulty knocking down shots at Minnesota but still posted 74 points thanks to a fast pace and 30 free throw attempts. From a totals perspective, Georgia has always been tough to figure under Mark Fox. Some games the Bulldogs will run up and down and score while others are low scoring fist fights. Earlier this season they faced UNC Asheville and Furman; two somewhat similar teams pace and ability wise. Against Asheville, UGA Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Missouri State Bears at Southeast Missouri Redhawks

Missouri State -9 at Southeast Missouri O/U 144.5
Recommendation: Over


Southeast Missouri is your typical up-tempo, no defense low mid-major. The Redhawks appear a bit improved over last season's 5-24 disaster with three wins already over DI competition. Of 2015's 27 games against DI teams, on only seven occasions did SEMO net better than a point per possession. This season, they've done in four times and have a shot to do it again on their home floor this evening. Missouri State is another team that looks much improved on the offensive end. They hung 96 against Alabama A&M and 91 against Jacksonville State to kick off the season. Not exactly stiff competition but SEMO isn't either as the Redhawks rank near the bottom nationally in a number of defensive categories. The Bears saw more resistance in their last three games against DePaul, North Dakota State and Air Force but still averaged a respectable 67.7 ppg with all three games at 68 possessions or less. There's also an injury to be aware with Missouri State's Obediah Church unlikely to play due to an bum knee. He's a strong "under" player with limited offensive ability and a big Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Oregon State Beavers at Mississippi State Bulldogs

12.01.2016     08:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oregon State at Mississippi State -8 O/U 130.5
Recommendation: Under


Points could be at a premium tonight in Starkville as Oregon State and Mississippi State will each be without their top offensive weapons. Tres Tinkle is the only player on the Beavers with an offensive rating north of 100. He's out indefinitely with a wrist injury. Even with Tinkle on the floor, OSU's offense has been a mess with one of the nation's highest turnover rates (25.8%), lowest three-point percentages (26.4%), and less than a point per possession despite an ultra-soft schedule. Center Drew Eubanks now becomes Oregon State's top option as evident by the 21 shots he took in Monday's win over NAIA Southern Oregon. Two years ago, Oregon State was able to compete by slowing down the tempo and playing various zone defenses. I expect that head coach Wayne Tinkle will attempt to shorten games moving forward due to the lack of weapons and experience. Mississippi State played a bunch of high scoring affairs early on thanks to Quinndary Weatherspoon's 18.8 ppg. He's missed the last two games and the Bulldogs netted only 73 points on 74 possessions vs. Lehigh and 65 points on 66 Read more

Murray State at Southern Illinois -3 O/U 146.5
Recommendation: Over


Two years ago, Murray State boasted one of most efficient offenses in the country thanks to a host of veterans and point guard Cameron Payne who is currently in the NBA. The Racers played an up-tempo game and routinely produced 80+ points against comparable competition. Following the departure of the aforementioned talent and head coach Steve Prohm, Murray suffered through a rebuilding year where they finished 17-14. New head coach Matt McMahon was forced to adjust the team's philosophers, most notably a much slower offense. Through six games, it looks as if the Racers have returned to a faster brand of basketball as their offensive possessions are over two seconds faster compared to last season. It's resulted in a number of high scoring games: 143, 168, 170, 159, 155, and 145. Southern Illinois head coach Barry Hinson has been vocal about his guard-heavy team playing at a faster clip this season. The Salukis ran up and down against Wright State, Arkansas, and SIU Edwardsville but head into tonight have played back-to-back lower scoring games against Mount St. Mary's and Minnesota.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: San Francisco Dons at UC Santa Barbara Gauchos

San Francisco at UC Santa Barbara -8.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: Under


San Francisco first-year head coach Kyle Smith, who came over from Columbia, vowed to shore up the Dons' defense and play a more control brand of basketball. That didn't exactly play out in their first game as a wave of early hot shooting led to a fast-paced 82-80 win over run-and-gun UIC. Far different opponent for USF tonight as its travels to UC Santa Barbara. Under longtime head coach Bob Williams, the Gauchos have consistently been one of the better defensive and slower teams in the Big West. In their first game, UCSB suffered a 74-60 loss to up-tempo Nebraska-Omaha. Netting only 60 points on your home floor in perhaps a bit alarming considering Omaha coughed up 80+ against USC and Kansas State. Last season, these two teams hooked up for a slow paced (62 possession) 68-61 game. That was with Rex Walters at the helm for USF; a coach whose teams generally play fast. And the total in that game closed 140.5. As mentioned, Smith's Columbia teams were among the slowest in the country. Some of that had to do with playing in the Ivy League but even in non-conference play, the Lions Read more
