Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: College Basketball's best against the spread

02.04.2013     11:06 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror after Sunday’s wild Baltimore victory, which can only mean one thing – college hoops is on center stage for the next eight weeks.  I’ve been writing game previews for ESPN.com/Insider for the last month, but I’ve yet to write a true ‘college basketball overview’ column for any publication so far this season.  That streak ends here.

I’m going take a look at the very best pointspread ‘regular board’ teams in the country in this week’s column.  The list of ATS juggernauts is likely to surprise many people due to its diversity.  Elite level teams aren’t necessarily pointspread winners, and bottom feeders can cash ticket after ticket if the betting markets set numbers that allow them to hang within the number as big underdogs.  Look no further than the single best ATS team in the nation so far this season. 

I’ll wager that less than a dozen people in the country knew that Fordham is the #1 ATS team in all of DI basketball this year; 14-5 against the number.  The Rams are 6-16 SU, just 2-5 in Atlantic-10 play.  Read more

College Basketball Betting: Florida continues to dominate the SEC

02.04.2013     08:28 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Florida is off to an 8-0 start in SEC play and finally failed to cover a pointspread in Saturday's 78-64 win over Ole Miss (+18). Make no mistake, the Gators were in complete control of that game and allowed the Rebels to slip through the backdoor with less than two minutes to go. Statistically, what Florida is doing right now is sick with an average scoring margin of +26.5 vs. conference foes. They are allowing 0.77 points per possession which means in a normal 65 possession game, UF's opponents average about 50 points.

When the Gators won the National Championship in 2006-07, they started conference play 11-0 and had wins by 16, 34, 25, and 16. They eventually cooled off and finished the regular season 4-3 SU and 1-7 ATS. That was a really good team but statistically, this year’s version is at this point far superior. Ken Pom points out that what Florida is doing this season is (somehow) not unprecedented. Pomeroy feels that the Gators will lose at least one and maybe even two league games. They play at Missouri in two weeks and close out the regular season in Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Virginia Cavaliers at Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Virginia -2.5 at Georgia Tech O/U 112.5
Recommendation: Over


Although they’re not winning games straight up, the young Yellow Jackets have developed a couple of definitive traits. Since ACC play began, GT has pushed their tempo up to 73 possessions per game. The high number of chances has allowed Tech to average nearly 64 ppg in league play despite their poor 38.9 FG%. Even turtle paced Clemson was sped up to 70 possessions by Georgia Tech last Tuesday night in their contest which totaled 123 points. Quicker pace is one thing, but the subpar defense being played by the Jackets is not something associated with HC Brian Gregory. Lapses and non-cohesiveness on the stop end are also bi-products of excessive youth which is trying to learn on the fly in a very tough league.  No doubt that Virginia head coach Tony Bennett’s team always brings their methodical game plan on the road but it’s hard to resist offensive the openings when that will Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Idaho State at North Dakota

Idaho State at North Dakota -7
Recommendation: North Dakota


Since 2009, when asked to play back-to-back road games in Big Sky play with only one day of rest, Idaho State is 0-10 SU and 3-7 ATS. Seven of those 10 losses came by more than seven points, tonight’s line against North Dakota. This shouldn’t come as a shock seeing as the Bengals have been Big Sky bottom feeders for quite some time and travel within the league can be brutal. Here they go from Greeley, Colorado (lost to Northern Colorado by 15 on Thursday) to Grand Forks, North Dakota – I can’t confirm but I seriously doubt they chartered a flight but instead like most mid-major schools, took commercial flights sprinkled in with a few hours on a bus. North Dakota isn’t a great team but we’ve seen signs its home court is going to be tough on opposing teams. In mid-January, the (they no longer have a team nickname for PC reasons) rolled off three straight home Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Play: Butler Bulldogs at Saint Louis Billikens

Butler +2.5 at Saint Louis O/U 124
Recommendation: Butler


I’m just not buying into the concept of Butler as an underdog.  Brad Stevens’ squad was an underdog at the Maui Invitational against Marquette.  They won straight up.  The Bulldogs were underdogs against North Carolina the next day.  They won straight up by double digits.  Butler was an underdog against Indiana, ranked #1 at the time.  They won straight up.

The Bulldogs were underdogs at St. Joe’s and Dayton to open up Atlantic-10 conference play.  They won those games in SU fashion too.  They were underdogs to Gonzaga and found a way to steal one from the Zags.  Yes, Butler did lose as an underdog at La Salle last week, but they still covered the spread in a two-point defeat.  Clearly, this team is exceeding marketplace expectations by a fairly wide margin.

Saint Louis is no joke – there’s a reason that Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Gonzaga Bulldogs at Loyola Marymount Lions

Gonzaga at Loyola Marymount +16 O/U 142
Recommendation: Loyola Marymount


As bad as Loyola Marymount's record looks, with the exception of a 92-51 loss at BYU (Cougars were in a huge revenge spot), they've been competitive more often than not in West Coast Conference play. They went to St. Mary's and lost by 13 and their other four WCC losses were by single digits. Note that they also managed to slip in a home win over a quality Santa Clara squad. And go back even further and we saw the Lions at home catching +10 against Ole Miss only to lose by three. Over the last six meetings in the series, the highest pointspread was Gonzaga -16.5...in Spokane. In their last three trips to Los Angeles, the Zags were laying -10.5 (won by 4), -9 (won by 10), and -11.5 (lost outright). Another key factor is the prep time. LMU head coach Max Good admitted that star Anthony Ireland has been worn down of late. The Lions had a full week of rest and prepare for the league's Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Close games in the Big East, blowouts in the SEC

01.30.2013     01:28 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are a few conference-only statistics from Ken Pom that break down home courts (SU), close games (4 points or less and/or OT), and blowouts (19 points or more). There are 33 conferences if you include independent. Below are the top 10 conferences and rank. In terms of home court, the ACC has been the strongest at 30-11 SU. The Missouri Valley Conference is also north of 70%. The Big East has had the highest percentage of close game at 30.9% with the A-10 not far behind at 27.3%. Interesting that despite its slow pace (63.4 possessions per game) and low scoring affairs, only six of 46 Big Ten conference games have been decided by four points or less or went to overtime. When it comes to blowouts, the SEC is top dog with 25% of its games decided by 19 points or more – in large part because of Florida who has five of the 11.
 
Big Ten
Home Court: 26-20, 56.5% (23)
Close Game: 6 of 46, 13.0% (28)
Blowout: 9 of 46, 19.6% (7)

Big East
Home Court: 30-25, 54.5% (26)

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Oregon Ducks at Stanford Cardinal

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oregon at Stanford -2 O/U 139
Recommendation: Over


Last time out, without starting point guard Dominic Artis, Oregon scored 81 points in an up-tempo, 76 possession game against Washington. I don't think we'll see those types of numbers tonight but it's clear that from a tempo standpoint, even without Artis, the Ducks are going to continue to run.


"We need to keep running," Altman said. "That suits us and helps us with our depth. If we're going to play nine or 10 guys, we've got to make sure we're pressing the other team."



Stanford has been up and down all season but we've seen the Cardinal push tempo with a willing partner. Games against USC, UCLA and Colorado featured an average of 70 possessions. The problem for Stanford has been an inconsistent offense. I expect them to pressure Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injuries, illness impact USC-UCLA matchup

USC at UCLA -8 O/U 143.5

Lots of unknowns for tonight's USC-UCLA matchup. Shabazz Muhammad (flu) and Travis Wear (concussion) are questionable for the Bruins – though Ben Howland hinted both players are expected to play. As for USC, 7-0 big man Dewayne Dedmon is also questionable with the flu. An article from yesterday mentioned Dedmon hadn't even been out of bed.


"Travis was not able to do any contact [Tuesday], but he ran up and down and did a bunch of shooting," Howland said. "I anticipate he'll be cleared to play because he had no symptoms."

College Basketball Gambling: Kentucky impresses in win over Ole Miss

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

It’s been a down year for Kentucky so far, at least in terms of preseason expectations. Too many pundits and fans were assuming head coach John Calipari would just reload every year and coast to a championship with future NBAers. The Wildcats are finally starting to play to its talent this season. Tuesday’s 87-74 win at #19 Mississippi as a 3-point underdog was particularly impressive.

Kentucky 87, #19 Mississippi 74

2-Point Percentage: Kentucky 61%, Ole Miss 33%

3-Point Shooting: Kentucky 8/23, Ole Miss 5/16

Free Throws: Kentucky 23/37, Ole Miss 13/20

1’s and 2’s: Kentucky 63, Ole Miss 59

Rebounds: Kentucky 42, Ole Miss 44

Turnovers: Kentucky 9, Ole Miss 7

(Kentucky 22-20, Ole Miss 25-24)

(The stat boxes will include parenthetical references to the computer ranking entering tonight made publicly available by Ken Pomeroy and Jeff Sagarin)

Wow…61% to 33% on Read more
