College Basketball Betting Free Play: Arizona State Sun Devils at Oregon Ducks

Arizona State at Oregon
Recommendation: Arizona State +5.5 1st half


On most days, Oregon is without question 10 points or more better than Arizona State on its home floor. But, the Ducks are off a huge storm-the-court-win against undefeated Arizona and it shouldn't come as a shock if they come out sluggish against ASU tonight. That was the biggest win the Ducks have had under Dana Altman as the team moved to 13-2, 2-0 PAC-12. Arizona State comes in playing with house money. They beat Utah in overtime to open PAC-12 play, caught Colorado in a great spot, and benefited from a multiple suspensions to Oregon State. I'm not completely sold on the Sun Devils but they are improved from last season (see: PG Jahii Carson) and have the guard play and size to not be completely overwhelmed on the highway. I grabbed some ASU +5.5 first half and will play accordingly at halftime.

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Arizona, Wyoming no longer perfect, Duke and Michigan remain

01.11.2013     02:19 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two teams back in action this weekend after losing their first games of the season. Wyoming, who while good was on borrowed time after playing a fairly soft schedule, lost at home to Boise State, 63-61. The Cowboys go on the road to face Nevada on Saturday. Arizona's streak ended last night in Eugene as Oregon held on for a 70-66 victory. The Wildcats have a day to record and then visit Oregon State. Duke (15-0, at NC State) and Michigan (16-0, at Ohio State) remain the only two unbeatens.

Out of curiosity, we went back the last two years and looked how teams with extended perfect records fared after being issued their first loss of the season.

It is a small sample but there doesn't look to be a significant hangover effect. The best example was two years ago when Syracuse was 18-0 and lost to Pittsburgh. The next time out against Villanova in the Carrier Dome, the Orange trailed 40-29 at half and lost by the same margin as 5.5-point home favorites.

2011-12
Syracuse 20-0, Loss at Notre Dame, Next game won and covered at Cincinnati.

Missouri 14-0, Loss at Kansas State, Next game won at covered at Iowa State.

Baylor 17-0, Loss at Read more

College Basketball Gambling Free Pick: Wright State Raiders at Loyola Ramblers

Wright State +4 at Loyola Chicago O/U 115.5
Recommendation: Wright State


This was supposed to be another down year for Wright State; still rebuilding following a string of 20+ win seasons under Brad Brownell (now at Clemson).  But a funny thing happened to Billy Donlon’s squad on the way to the Horizon League cellar – they started playing great basketball, right from the get-go. 

On opening night, the Raiders pulled the outright upset as ten point road dogs at Idaho.  They followed that up with wins away from home against Eastern Illinois, Idaho State and Hofstra.  Wright played at Cincinnati and hung tough throughout, a wire-2-wire ATS cover as 18 point dogs.  And here in Horizon League play, we’ve seen the Raiders win each of their first three games, two in blowout fashion, thanks to a stifling defense that has held nine of their last ten opponents under 60 points.

College Basketball Betting: NC State still in search of a marquee win

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's a new year but worth pointing out NC State's struggles at home vs. the ACC and when asked to step up in class. Against conference foes last year, the Wolfpack were 4-4 SU and a dismal 0-7-1 ATS in Raleigh. And dating back to last year, with the expectation of a second round win over Georgetown in the NCAA Tournament, NC State routinely fell short against better competition. Against Ken Pom's Top 25, the Wolfpack went 1-11 SU and 4-7 ATS under head coach Mark Gottfried. NC State plays host to Duke on Saturday.

Last Year vs. Ken Pom Top 25
SU/ATS Loss vs. Vanderbilt
SU/ATS Loss vs. Indiana
SU/ATS Loss vs. Syracuse
SU/ATS Loss at North Carolina
SU Loss/ATS Win at Duke
SU/ATS Loss vs. Florida State
SU/ATS Loss vs. North Carolina
SU Loss/ATS Win vs. North Carolina
SU/ATS Win vs. Georgetown
SU Loss/ATS Win vs. Kansas

This year vs. Ken Pom Top 25
SU/ATS Loss vs. Oklahoma State

College Basketbal Betting Free Play: Texas-Arlington at Texas-San Antonio

Texas-Arlington at Texas-San Antonio -1.5
Recommendation: Texas-San Antonio


I’ve picked my spots in cashing a couple tickets against this Texas-Arlington squad and I think tonight offers another good opportunity for another fade as they take on Texas-San Antonio. The weakness all season for Texas-San Antonio has been their play on the defensive end of the court. The Roadrunners have allowed 70 points per game and a very poor 51% shooting to opposing teams on their home floor this season but I’m not sure that Arlington is offensively capable of taking advantage of the defensive woes. Arlington has been a consistently woeful shooting team most of the season and they failed to exceed 52 points scored in any of their last three home games – SU and ATS losses to Denver, Boise State and Louisiana Tech. The Mavericks’ struggles offensively have crippled their ability to win games and cover pointspreads especially when you consider that Boise State, who is far from a shut down defensive team, kept Arlington to just 46 points. The Mavericks are shooting below 40% for the season and just 31.5% from the perimeter. Arlington’s last Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Arizona State Sun Devils at Oregon State Beavers

Arizona State at Oregon State -5
Recommendation: Oregon State


I'm not sold on Arizona's 13-2, 2-0 PAC-12 start. Are the Sun Devils better than last year? No question. But the schedule has been extremely favorable thus far and things get a bit tougher starting tonight in Corvallis. For starters ASU has played one true road game against a Texas Tech squad that just lost on its home floor to Baylor by 34. Next, the Sun Devils are 2-0 in league play but needed overtime to get past Utah and were gift-wrapped a win against Colorado after the Buffaloes were hosed out of one on the road against undefeated Arizona. Oregon State meanwhile below a six-point halftime lead and ended up losing to rival Oregon 79-66 at home. With Arizona on deck and then back-to-back road games in LA, all of a sudden this game has a lot of meaning. If Oregon State can keep ASU's Jahii Carson in check – I expect they’ll throw multiple defensive looks his way – I think Read more

College Basketball Betting: How long with Arizona's good fortunes last?

01.10.2013     06:15 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good college basketball teams have a tendency to win more close games than bad teams – a theory that pretty much everyone subscribes to. However, throughout and entire season, even the elite at some point will fall victim to things not going their way late in a close contest. That brings us to Arizona who is undefeated despite playing a slew of close games over the last month.

vs. Florida: Florida has a 64-58 lead with less than a minute to go in Tucson. The Gators foul and Arizona hits two free throws to cut it to 4. Florida turns it over and Arizona races down and cuts it to Read more

College Basketbal Betting Free Play: Louisville Cardinals at Seton Hall Pirates

Louisville -10.5 at Seton Hall O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Over


Louisville has put up outstanding defensive numbers this season but if you dig a little you'll notice that quality teams have had varying degrees of success. Providence shot 45% from the floor and 40% from three. Kentucky was even better at 48.3%/47.6%. Memphis hit nearly 52% of its shots and Illinois State did the same. Some of those games were without the services of post presence Gorgui Dieng who is now back but the loss of Chane Behanan once again leaves the Cardinals without a quality defender. Pitno said Behanan will be replaced by Montrezl Harrell who doesn't yet understand the intricacies of the team’s defense. Make no mistake, Louisville is still an elite defense, but in its five games vs. BCS conference schools (and Memphis) the games scores were 145, 147, 165, 157 and 142. But beyond the “so-so” defense, the two main reasons of those high scores were pace and Read more

College Basketball Betting: West Virginia considers lineup changes

West Virginia at Texas -4.5 O/U 125.5

No shortage of topics when it comes to West Virginia basketball these days. Beat writers have already worn out the lack of toughness/no leadership angles. Now they’re going the potential lineup change route. The Mountaineers' big men have vastly underachieved and as a result, the team has been killed on the boards. Head coach Bob Huggins, who may or may not punch someone or something before the year is out, is considering going the small-ball route. The only problem is the team is shooting 28.7% from three. The Mountaineers have shot better than 50% eFG twice this season (vs. Marist and Oakland). Tonight they face one of the best defenses in the country in Texas (0.84 points per posession allowed).
