College Basketball Betting Free Play: Drexel Dragons at Old Dominion Monarchs

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Drexel -2.5 at Old Dominion O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Drexel


Old Dominion is 4-24 SU this year, including a 2-14 mark at home in Norfolk.  Head coach Blaine Taylor didn’t survive the Monarchs 2-20 SU start; an absolute disaster for a program that has been a fixture in the postseason for the last eight years, averaging 24 wins per season during that span.  They got a small bump when Jim Corrigan was named interim head coach, but the betting markets reacted very quickly.  That’s why we’ve seen ODU lose SU as favorites twice in their last three games.  And because the Monarchs are ineligible to play in the CAA tournament this year, their final few games are as meaningless as it gets for a downtrodden bottom feeder.

When Taylor was fired, Old Dominion’s first game came at Drexel.  The team responded positively to the coaching change, winning 78-66 as 11.5 point underdogs.  Drexel head coach Bruiser Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Missouri tries to bounce back at South Carolina

Missouri -9.5 at South Carolina O/U 140

Missouri is viewing tonight's road game at South Carolina as a must-win after losing to Kentucky in overtime last Saturday. Mizzou has had its struggles on the road in SEC play with its lone win coming at woeful Mississippi State. In the Tigers' other six away games they're 0-6 SU/ATS. In the first meeting against the Gamecocks, the Tigers won 71-65 but failed to cover as 14-point home chalk. They were however without Laurence Bowers and Keion Bell.


“If we don’t beat them,” MU guard Phil Pressey said, “then that’s where the problems start coming in to play.”

“It was just the same sad story,” senior forward Alex Oriakhi said Monday, looking back at the 90-83 overtime loss to

College Basketball Gambling: BYU a rare home underdog to No. 2 Gonzaga

Gonzaga -6 at BYU O/U 147

It was close but last time out BYU finally came away with a pointspread cover against a quality opponent, losing at St. Mary's 64-57 as an 8-point underdog. Since joining the WCC, the Cougars are 1-7 SU and 2-6 ATS vs. Gonzaga and St. Mary's. Tonight they find themselves a 6-point home underdog to Gonzaga on Senior Night. Here is the box score from the first meeting ass-kicking. The last time BYU was catching points at home was back in 2005 (+1.5 vs. UNLV, lost 77-66). As for the Zags, yes, they are pretty good. But with the media chirping about No. 1 rankings and seeds and the recent rash of top-tier teams falling on the road it wouldn't surprise us to see the home side make a game of it tonight in Provo.

San Diego State at New Mexico -5.5 O/U 131

The road side has been the play of late in the San Diego State-New Mexico series winning five off the last seven games outright. The trend goes back even further with road teams on a 14-3 ATS run. The betting markets aren’t buying it however with the Lobos bet up from -5 to -5.5/-6 for tonight's meeting. Through 57 Mountain West games this season, home teams have won 40 times (70.2%) straight up. It's the second highest rate behind the Missouri Valley at 71.2% (57-23). Also throw in the fact that in the first meeting, SDSU embarrassed UNM 55-34.

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Indiana, Florida, and Memphis all falter on the road

March has its Madness. Late February college basketball doesn’t have anything to get excited about beyond the fact that it’s a “Prelude to March Madness.” As a result, this stretch of calendar historically has seen many subpar efforts from college powers. The kids can’t concentrate on their homework because Christmas is coming.

Tonight, the top two computer teams in the Jeff Sagarin and Ken Pomeroy rankings both lost outright as road favorites. One guy has Indiana #1 and Florida #2, the other has it the other way. Our estimate of market Power Ratings also had those teams as the top two last time we looked. Tonight’s boxscores from Minnesota and Tennessee show the visiting powers were linked up in “lack of focus” categories as well…

Indiana allowed 53% inside the arc, Florida allowed 49%

College Basketball Handicapping: Oregon's Artis expected back vs. Oregon State

02.27.2013     07:19 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oregon point guard Dominic Artis is expected back for Thursday's game against Oregon State – in a limited role. In his absences, Oregon went 5-4 SU, 2-7 ATS, and 4-5 O/U. In those nine contests the Ducks committed 15.4 turnovers per game and dished out only 10.1 assists per game. However, the ratio was significantly improved (45 turnovers, 41 assists) the last four games. So while the Ducks are certainly pleased to have Artis back, the experience of playing without him could help this team down the road.


“Hopefully, if things progress well, he will give us a few minutes on Thursday night,” Altman said. “It’s not going to be a lot (of playing time). It depends on the game and it depends on how he is feeling but I don’t anticipate him playing long.”

College Basketball Gambling: USC looks for payback against Arizona

Arizona -6.5 at USC

A little role reversal tonight between Arizona and USC. In the first meeting the situation favored the Wildcats who were off a home loss to UCLA whereas USC was on the road and a day removed from a wild 98-93 overtime loss at Arizona State. The end result was ugly as Arizona rolled over USC, 74-50. For tonight's meeting, the Trojans are off a loss to rival UCLA and still have the first loss to Arizona fresh in their minds. The Wildcats meanwhile have a huge game with UCLA on deck.


"We will be a lot more motivated (this time)," USC guard J.T. Terrell said.

"I don't think anyone on the team has forgotten how we lost to them," Wesley said. "That loss has stuck in my mind. I've been thinking a lot about that."

College Basketball Betting: Akron takes 18-game winning streak to Ohio

Akron at Ohio -3.5

It's the MAC Game of the Year tonight as Akron (12-0) travels to Ohio (11-1). In the first meeting the Bobcats held a 13-point first half lead but were outscored 76-49 the rest of the way as the Zips won 86-72. Akron comes in riding an 18-game winning streak. Ohio has won 21 straight conference games at the Convocation Center.


"We're not going to hide from it or lie about, all that stuff makes this game bigger," Ohio senior guard Walter Offutt said. "It makes it bigger that they're ranked in the top 25. It makes it bigger than a win here helps their case for an NCAA Tournament at-large bid if they need it.

"I think all the pressure is on them more than us, because win or

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Auburn Tigers at Alabama Crimson Tide

Auburn +11.5 at Alabama O/U 119
Recommendation: Auburn


Alabama hasn’t been just bad a home chalk in SEC play…they’ve been abysmal! The results don’t lie as the Crimson Tide enter tonight’s rivalry showdown against Auburn on a dreadful 0-6 ATS run in their six SEC home games as favorites. They had single-digit home wins against Tennessee, Arkansas, LSU and Texas A&M – none of which were enough for a pointspread cover as home favorites. Alabama was only able to beat SEC bottom feeders Mississippi State by 8 as 15-point home favorites and South Carolina by 10 as 12-point home favorites. The spot is not good either for the home team tonight. Alabama is coming off a wild triple OT thriller at LSU coming up just short 97-94 after blowing a 10-point lead with 2 minutes left. That isn’t the kind of loss that is easy to rebound from especially when you are talking about a team needing to win by a significant margin.

Big XII will review missed calls in Iowa State-Kansas fiasco

02.26.2013     07:52 AM     Printer Friendly
Good news. Actually, it isn't good news but rather a painful reminder for those who wagered on Iowa State. The Big XII is going to review some of the absolutely horrific calls/no calls in last night's ISU-KU debacle. Sure could use one of those sportsbook marketing promotions where they step in and refund bets à la Seattle-Green Bay.


"We will handle the situation and approach the teams appropriately," said Shaw. "We review every play and take the appropriate action."
