College Basketball Betting News and Notes 3-9-2013

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A few links for this weekend’s college basketball action. The theme with most of these is the dreaded MUST WIN SITUATION!

Boise State is reportedly in a must win situation vs. San Diego State. The Aztecs won the first meeting 63-62.

A lot of games Maryland plays these days are considered must win – especially Wednesday's matchup vs. North Carolina in which Terps’ guards P'Shon Howard, Logan Aronhalt, Seth Allen combined to shoot 2-of-19 from the floor. On to Virginia, boys!

Things didn't work out well for Kentucky's must win game at Georgia. That means today's matchup against Florida is even more must win!

Nebraska's Tim Miles is calling today's game at Iowa Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Marshall Thundering Herd and East Carolina Pirates

Marshall at East Carolina -6.5
Recommendation: East Carolina


Marshall is not a team that knows how to handle prosperity or be consistent. In the five previous instances in which the Herd was off a conference win, they lost and failed to cover. This past Tuesday was Marshall’s Super Bowl. They had lost to Southern Miss 102-46 earlier in the season and had the rematch circled for over a month. They came up big and beat USM 88-84. Heading into their regular season finale there is little to nothing to play for – and as noted, even when there is something to play for, Marshall doesn't always show up. A slew of things need to happen in order for them to move up the standings and even if that occurs (very unlikely) it still doesn't change the fact that they will need to win a bunch of games to get to the Big Dance. East Carolina already has the No. 4 seed locked up so on the surface it doesn't look like the Pirates have much to play for either. But Read more

Colonial Conference Tournament Betting Preview

Colonial Conference Tournament Preview

What a year for the Colonial! Perennial heavyweight VCU bolted for the A-10. Old Dominion, who won back-to-back tournament titles in 2010 and 2011 and reached the semifinals last year, went 5-25 and fired its coach midseason. Preseason favorite George Mason finished fifth. Towson went from 1-31 to 18-13 but can't play in the postseason due to poor grades. UNC-Wilmington is also ineligible. Georgia State is leaving for the Sun Belt so wasn't invited. As a result of those three teams being out, Hofstra (7-23, 4-13) got in. And Northeastern won the regular season title despite being one of the luckiest teams on the planet for a month-long stretch. With the exception of George Mason (2008) and James Madison (1994), the remainder of the field has exactly zero Colonial Conference tournament titles.

First Round Pick: Delaware played a tough non-conference schedule, battling with the likes of Villanova, Duke, Temple, Pitt, Virginia, and Kansas State. They acquitted themselves fairly well in those games and opened conference play 3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS. Unfortunately, it was the kiss of the death. The Blue Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Bettors respond to Akron suspension

03.08.2013     07:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
By now you've probably heard that Akron's point guard, Alex Abreu, was busted for having a ton of pot and as a result suspended indefinitely. The Zips have the MAC's No. 1 seed locked up but close out the regular season tonight against rival Kent State. According to some projections, Akron could reach the NCAA Tournament via an at-large berth but can ill-afford to lose to a lesser opponent like Kent State at home. So tonight's game does have some importance.

We'll also point a recent example of a team “rising up” the first game following a key suspension. St. John's lost leading scorer D'Angelo Harrison and the next time out went on the road and covered against Providence. The game after that – blowout loss at Notre Dame – is when the Red Storm fell flat.  Early bettors haven’t taken that approach with Akron bet down from an opener of -10 to -8.5.

Metro Atlantic Conference Tournament Betting Preview

Metro Atlantic Tournament Preview

After the three straight years of the No. 1 seed knocking off the No. 2 seed in the finals, the last two MAAC title games have featured a No. 2 vs. No. 4 matchup. The conference was highly competitive this season with five teams in the hunt for regular season crown. For example, Niagara, the regular season champ, had games decided by 3, 4, 1, 3 (OT), 2 (2 OT), 3, 4, and 3. The close nature of the league should make for a crazy tournament and perhaps a difficult handicap with nothing but the slimmest of margins separating most of these squads. Note that this will mark the first year the tourney will be held at the MassMutual Center even though no one in the MAAC resides in Massachusetts.

Darkhorse: Hard to pick a darkhorse when over half the field should all be priced the same the win the tournament. Bettors should be prepared for a lot of games lined -2.5 or less. Rider can hardly be considered a darkhorse as the No. 2 seed but the Broncs weren't even considered a contender with a league record of 6-5 heading into February. They got hot at the right time but drew a tough card with a potential Read more

Sun Belt Conference Tournament Betting Preview

Sun Belt Conference Tournament Preview

The Sun Belt Conference Tournament has a long history of craziness. Upsets happen with regularity, like last season when the top two seeds were bounced in their first game and the finals featured a No. 5 vs. No. 7 matchup. Of the last 12 teams to participate in the championship game, seven were a fourth seed or lower. On paper No. 1 Middle Tennessee State is as close to a lock as you can get to cut down the nets this conference tournament season. The Blue Raiders rolled through league play (14-2) last year and lost to No. 9 Arkansas State in the quarterfinals but this year’s edition is even stronger; a veteran club on a mission.

First Round Pick: North Texas
For much of the season, North Texas was an easy bet against. Longtime head coach Johnny Jones left for LSU, they had a ton of injuries, and Tony Mitchell underperformed. But the Mean Green have talent and a little bit of confidence having won four of six to close out the regular season. The also got point guard Chris Jones back. Jones missed practically all of January and February but returned and played the last two Read more

MVC Tournament Gambling Free Pick: Southern Illinois Salukis vs. Missouri State Bears

Southern Illinois -2.5 vs. Missouri State
Recommendation: Southern Illinois


There's no question that Southern Illinois is playing their best basketball of the season right now.  The Salukis have won five of their last six, ending their long road losing streak in the process with an impressive upset at Drake on senior day last weekend.  The key to their recent surge has been defensive pressure leading to easy fast break buckets.  They've scored at least 15 points on fast breaks twice in their last three games and their 277 team steals this year were their most in the last seven years.

Missouri State head coach Paul Lusk knows what he's up against.  "They’ve done a terrific job with that (forcing turnovers). They've played about as solid and inspired basketball as you could play over the last month.  They've really come together, but there’s no doubt that their turnovers, and the turnovers that Read more
