Bracket Buster Betting Free Play: Albany Great Danes at Fairfield Stags

Albany at Fairfield -8
Recommendation: #638 Fairfield


In most cases, the handicap of Bracket Buster games is all about information and motivation. In the case of Albany, we find a team that isn’t exactly giddy about having to go on the road for a meaningless game. Here's what head coach Will Brown had to say about it...

"All I am worried about right now is the America East," Brown said. "I am not going to risk anything for the BracketBuster. Our focus is the America East Conference tournament right now. I want to make sure we are healthy, rested and feel good about ourselves."

He went on to add...

“I think it’s a great concept,” Brown said. “It’s a great idea, but if you don’t play on TV, I would rather have the weekend off. I know a lot of coaches feel that way.”

Brown said that starting guard Peter Hooley won't play and that he'll be open Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Georgia Bulldogs at Arkansas Razorbacks

02.21.2013     10:46 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Georgia +11 at Arkansas O/U 131.5
Recommendation: Georgia


Arkansas is in a miserable spot tonight.  They’re coming off a lucky, somewhat fraudulent win over Missouri in their last game, outscoring the Tigers 7-1 in the last 28 seconds to steal a two-point victory.  On deck for the Razorbacks?  A trip to Florida to take on the revenge minded Gators. 

In between is this game against Georgia as double-digit favorites.  Even head coach Mike Anderson is worried about his team’s ability to focus tonight.  “I know after Missouri everybody is patting them on the back and saying, ‘Great, great win!’”

While focus is a major issue for the home favorite, we’re catching the road underdog in a spot where their hunger is very real.  Three different extremely controversial calls went against the Bulldogs in the final minutes of regulation against Ole Miss on Saturday, as they lost an Read more

College Basketball Betting Update: Can BYU finally cover against a quality opponent?

02.21.2013     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

BYU at St. Mary's -8 O/U 150

Quick update of our BYU Stinks Against Good Teams blog. We last posted following the Cougars' home loss to St. Mary's. Since then BYU went on the road and got blasted by Gonzaga 83-63 as 10-point underdogs. They also lost outright to San Diego and San Francisco and have covered only one game this month (1-4 ATS). Tonight they're catching +8 against the Gaels.

College Basketball Handicapping: Finding ways to score the key for Cincinnati

Cincinnati -1 at Connecticut O/U 126.5

You know how some beat writers or SIDs will point out that Team A is 34-1 when scoring 100 points or more – or some silly stat that is ridiculously obvious. Here's one that isn't. Most of you are aware that Cincinnati isn't a great offensive team. The Bearcats rank 10th in the Big East in offensive efficiency (0.98 ppp) and 14th in effective field goal percentage (44.1%).So it stands to reason that when Cinci does have success it often manages to match or exceed those numbers. But Cinci has proven it doesn't need to shoot lights out or be ultra-efficient to win. Amazingly this team is a perfect 19-0 when it scores 61 points (!!!) or more. The scary thing is the Bearcats have seven losses. Tonight's opponent UConn has held four of its 12 Big East opponents to below 60 points in Read more

NCAA Basketball Gambling: California has had Oregon's number

California at Oregon -5 O/U 138

February 9, 2008 was the last time Oregon defeated California. Since that time, the Golden Bears have ripped off 10 straight (7-3 ATS) vs. the Ducks. In this year’s first meeting in Berkeley, Oregon outshot Cal 47.6% to 35.6% but without point guard Dominic Artis (who won't play again tonight) the Ducks committed 22 turnovers and lost 58-54.


“The first year, they were just flat better than us,” Altman said of games against Cal in his three seasons. “Last year we had chance at their place, we just didn’t get it done.

“This year we had a chance at their place and didn’t get it done. We’ve had our chances.”

College Basketball Betting Trends: Temple Owls like to make things close

02.20.2013     02:53 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Temple has quite a streak in play heading into tomorrow night's game against La Salle. The Owls have participated in five straight games decided by exactly one point. They are 3-2 SU/ATS in those contests – all three wins came as underdogs.


"We've been in every game, although there are games where you could say we didn't put enough space between," Dunphy said. "As a coach, if you've been it long enough, you have different personalities that go along with each team. We haven't been able to get any great separation, and yet, there's another side to these guys that there hasn't been any quit. I'm equal parts frustrated and proud [of the streak]."

NCAA Basketball Gambling Update: Minnesota's Williams downgraded to doubtful

02.20.2013     02:37 PM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Minnesota at Ohio State -6 O/U 125.5

According to Sports Options, Minnesota's Rodney Williams (11.4 ppg) was downgraded to doubtful for tonight's game against Ohio State. We got mixed reports on Twitter – everything from questionable to doubtful to game time decision to out. Earlier this afternoon, the betting markets came in fairly strong on Ohio State as the line climbed from -5.5 to -6.5. There has been some buyback over the last hour with the Buckeyes now -6 at most offshore sportsbooks. It's actually a significant blow if he doesn’t suit up considering the Golden Gophers' offensive struggles of late (53.4 ppg last five game in regulation).


“Obviously he’s a focal

College Basketball Gambling Free Pick: Washington State Cougars at Arizona State Sun Devils

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Washington State at Arizona State -6.5
Recommendation: Arizona State


I posted a free play winner in support of Arizona State in their last game; an outright Sun Devils upset win as 7.5 point underdogs at Colorado.  And there’s absolutely no reason to do anything different in regards to Herb Sendek’s squad tonight; an undervalued commodity for months now.

Arizona State has hit 67% against the spread over their last 18 lined ballgames dating back to the beginning of December, including a 75% ATS mark as favorites of 6.5 points or higher – exactly the pointspread that we find them in tonight.  It all starts with point guard Jahii Carson, averaging more than 19 points per game in his last ten contests.

But Carson isn’t doing it by himself.   7-2 center Jordan Bachynski is blocking nearly four shots per game, a true low post defensive dominator.  Carrick Felix has already been named the Read more
