Sportsmemo Handicapper Teddy Covers' NCAA Tournament Final Four Betting Preview

03.26.2012     10:26 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Over the last two weeks we’ve seen 64 NCAA Tournament teams get eliminated from the field, leaving only the Final Four remaining with a chance to cut down the nets in New Orleans next Monday.

College hoops statistical guru Ken Pomeroy breaks down the four teams chances to win the title as follows: Kentucky 42%, Ohio State 34%, Kansas 17% and Louisville 7%. From my perspective, if John Calipari’s Wildcats play as well next weekend as they did this past weekend, that 42% chance of a title looks pretty darn low.

That being said, it’s going to be very hard for Kentucky to match their near flawless offensive performances in wins over Baylor and Indiana. The Wildcats have scored a ridiculous 220 points in their last 163 possessions; a 1.35 points per possession ratio. Those are not sustainable numbers, even for a team that closed out the weekend ranked #2 in the country (behind only Missouri) with 1.17 points per possession average.

Both Final Four games are rematches of non-conference affairs from earlier in the season. The talking heads on TV are sure to bring up this angle ad nauseum, but the bottom line is that neither affair had a Read more

CIT Semifinal Betting Preview: Oakland Grizzlies at Utah State Aggies

Oakland at Utah State -5 O/U 150

We’re off a 3-0 college basketball sweep Saturday and we’ll fire at the CollegeInsider.com tournament on Sunday. Utah State (20-15) hosts high-scoring Oakland (20-15) in semifinal action. The Aggies have won all three of their home games in CIT action and head coach Stew Morrill is one of the best; especially at the Spectrum in Logan, Utah. The Aggies are 16-4 on their home court this season and 67-5 the past four regular seasons. And in the favorite role up to -13, Utah State has covered over 60% of its last 110 games at home.

Big contrast in styles and the Aggies will face a tough challenge slowing down the nation’s leading scorer, Oakland guard Reggie Hamilton (26 ppg). The high-scoring Grizzlies push the pace and launch the three-balls while scoring over 79 ppg. Hamilton is the key as his dribble-drives create plenty of scoring for himself and teammates and he also hits 42% from the arch and 88% from Read more

Elite Eight Gambling Notes: UNC's Marshall still questionable vs. Kansas

Kansas -2 vs. North Carolina O/U 143

Transcribed interview with North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall discussing the status of his surgically repaired wrist. According to Sports Options, he is currently questionable for this afternoon's Elite Eight matchup vs. Kansas. With Marshall, the Tar Heels committed 24 turnovers in their 73-65 overtime win over Ohio on Friday.


On believing he could make enough progress in 24 hours to play ...

KM: "I do. I've gotten better every single day, which is a positive. Not just for the game, but for my health in general. If I were to make a huge jump and be healthy enough to contribute to my team, then there's a chance I could play tomorrow."

Baylor vs. Kentucky -8 O/U 147.5

Article discussing how both Baylor and Kentucky prefer to play at a fast pace. After averaging only 62 possessions per game in SEC play, the Wildcats have played to 70, 67and 73 possessions in the NCAA Tournament.


"Do you want to play slow or fast?'' he asked them on the podium during Saturday's news conference.

"Fast,'' Kentucky senior guard Darius Miller said.

"Huh. If they play the way they enjoy playing, they're going to play better,'' Calipari said. "They just are. They're going to be more comfortable. I trust these players. We had six turnovers and we scored 102 points. I know they're going to make good decisions. The only time they don't is when I leave them on the court too long.''

NCAA Tournament Betting Alert: UNC's Marshall unlikely to play vs. Ohio

Ohio vs. North Carolina -10.5 O/U 142.5

It looks very unlikely that North Carolina point guard Kendall Marshall will play in tonight's Sweet Sixteen matchup against Ohio.


"I really don't know. I have a strong, strong inclination that he's not going to play….If he comes into my room tomorrow and says 'Hey, my wrist feels great' and drops down on the floor and does ten one-handed push ups on his right hand, then I'd say I'd probably play his rear-end. But I don't expect that to happen, I mean the guy can't brush his teeth right now."

Sweet Sixteen Betting Notes: Syracuse wants to avoid slow paced game vs. Wisconsin

03.22.2012     10:20 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Wisconsin vs. Syracuse -3 O/U 120

Syracuse claims it will look to push the pace in tonight's Sweet Sixteen matchup against Wisconsin.  Note that against up-tempo BYU, North Carolina, Marquette, UNLV and Indiana, the Badgers played to 60, 61, 63, 62, 54 and 61 possessions.


“In the Big East we were able to play both (styles),” SU guard Brandon Triche said. “We had a few games playing in the 50s. A lot of teams tried to slow us down. I think the biggest thing for us is being able to rebound, try to speed them up a little bit as much as we can.”

“We just have to get the ball and push it and try to beat them down the court,” Fair said. “Then we have to convert on a lot of our offensive trips and not make silly turnovers.”

College Basketball Gambling: NIT, CBI and CIT Power Ratings

03.22.2012     10:13 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NIT
The conference may have been rightfully ridiculed and rightfully left out of the NCAA Tournament this season but they dominated the NIT. Washington and Stanford make up half of the semifinal field at MSG next week. They perhaps could have had a third team had Oregon not faced the Huskies in the quarterfinals. Note that Washington and Stanford have never had to leave their home floors but NIT Committee head C.M. Newton – a good ol’ SEC boy – tried his best to push his own through as well by giving Tennessee (#1 seed), Ole Miss (#2 seed) and Mississippi State home floor – none of which prospered despite the advantage. After all the deserved PAC-12 bashing this season they deserve some credit with their NIT performances, now let's see if they can continue to earn more by winning away from home against a pair of red-hot teams.

Here are my power ratings lines for the Semifinals:

Minnesota -1 vs. Washington
Stanford -1 vs. Massachusetts

CBI
Despite losing their leading scorer Brock Motum just two minutes into last night's game, Washington State won at Oregon State and will now host Read more
