College Basketball Gambling: Big Ten trending OVER the total in non-conference play

12.19.2012     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Seems like every year during non-conference play there is talk of Big Ten teams playing at a faster tempo. Then of course once conference play starts, games routinely fail to top 120 points. The Big Ten is currently 45-32 O/U but from a possessions-per-game perspective not a whole lot has changed. Indiana and Iowa are running just like last year. Illinois, Minnesota, and Ohio State are also looking to push the pace. Michigan State has made an effort to do get out in transition but the Spartans did the same thing last year during non-conference and ended up averaging 62.5 possessions per game in Big Ten play. The rest of the league continues to grind with Michigan, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Penn State and Nebraska all ranked among the slowest teams in the country. Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan summed it up by saying that a lot of teams "look faster" during non-conference play in part because they can simply outclass the opposition. But with the exception of Nebraska (who is still slow as hell under Tim Miles) and Illinois, there are no new coaches or significant Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Key injury update

A nice laundry list of college basketball's key injuries. One of the most significant was Wichita State losing Carl Hall (thumb) for at least a month. If you've ever watched the Shockers, Hall is without question their most important player.

College Basketball Betting: Alabama tries to snap three-game losing skid

Alabama -9 at Texas Tech

Alabama has had a rough December with three straight losses. They fell on the road to Cincinnati on a last season shot, came up with a lame effort at home against Dayton, and last time out didn't have a chance against VCU's pressure defense. Tonight, they take a considerable step down in class but are still being asked to win by double-digits on the road. Head coach Anthony Grant wasn't shy about saying his team needs to get better in all facets of the game.


“We’ve got to get better as a basketball team. I say this to the guys a lot: Basketball is a game of habits. When we won six in a row, there some things that winning brings in terms of a confidence level. But there are also some things that get put under the shadows a little bit that you need to get better at … or it’s going

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Stanford Cardinal at NC State Wolfpack

Stanford at NC State -7.5 O/U 142
Recommendation: NC State


I think Stanford is in for a difficult time tonight at NC State. The Cardinal will be playing their first road game of the season clear across the country against a quality foe eager for a marquee win. I typically don't make much of revenge angles but it is important to note that last year NC State traveled to Palo Alto had a comfortable lead and then allowed Stanford to close the game on a 17-1 run – much of that run occurred without CJ Leslie who was sitting due to cramps.  Offensively, Stanford has really struggled to shoot the basketball despite not having played a true road game. In losses to Belmont, Minnesota and Missouri, the Cardinal shot only 42% from the floor and an even more alarming 14-of-64, 21.8% from three. Stanford also wasn't a great road team last year. Their six PAC-12 losses were by margins of 11, 13, 13, 10, 11 and 1 (at Utah). But while a lot lines up for NC State, Read more

College Basketball Betting: Charleston back at full strength vs. Old Dominion

Old Dominion at College of Charleston -8

College of Charleston expects to have two starters back for tonight's game against Old Dominion. Senior point guard Andrew Lawrence (12.4 ppg) and junior forward Trent Wiedeman (11.7 ppg) have both been upgraded to probable.


“Andrew will be back and we are hoping Trent will be back as well. They both mean so much to us. We have played a lot longer without Trent, but to have that other ball handler (Lawrence) is really important to our offense and our spacing.”

College Basketball Handicapping: Can Richmond handle Kansas' size?

Richmond at Kansas -14 O/U 133

Interesting matchup tonight with Kansas playing host to Richmond. The Spiders are one of the smaller teams in the country with only Derrick Williams (6-6) and Alonzo Nelson-Odada (6-9) seeing significant playing time along the front line. That could pose a problem against the Jayhawks who feature a handful of 6-8 players as well as 7-footer Jeff Withey. Against Ohio, Richmond was outrebounded 36-26 and allowed 14 offensive rebounds. Against Minnesota, more of the same as the Spiders were outdone on the glass, 37-20.

College Basketbal Betting Free Play: UL-Monroe Warhawks at Florida State Seminoles

UL-Monroe at Florida State -25
Recommendation: Florida State


UL-Monroe is arguably the worst team in college basketball. Already this season we've seen them lose to Oklahoma by 34, Arkansas-Little Rock by 25 and last time out, at home, by 29 to Southern. Last year's ULM team won three games and they were forced to reload with JC players. They've purposely scheduled fewer games so the kids can hit the books harder in order to boost the team's APR. The bottom line is if and when ULM covers, it will come as a result of other teams clearing their bench and calling off the dogs not because they came through the backdoor with a flurry of points late. Florida State is going through a transition and head coach Leonard Hamilton's main concern is getting his kids to buy into his style of play. There have been pitfalls including home losses to South Alabama and Mercer but when focused, the Seminoles have shown they still have the ability to outclass teams at home (see: 95-68 vs. Buffalo; 91-59 vs. Maine). With finals out of the way and nothing significant looming on deck until the weekend, I expect the Seminoles to be focused for this contest.

College Basketball Handicapping: How important is the first meeting to a rematch?

Interesting theory in play tonight with Louisiana Tech and Arkansas-Little Rock hooking up for a second time this season. In the first meeting, Tech rolled to a 70-52 home win. For tonight's rematch, they are currently priced as 2-point road chalk. I unearthed my College Basketball Prospectus from a few years back and remember an article written by Ken Pomeroy on second meets. The records are a little dated but over a five-year span, Pomeroy found that teams that won the first meeting at home by 20-29 points were a relatively modest 283-202 (.583) in the road rematch. Teams that won by 10-19 points (like Louisiana Tech) were 781-759 (.507). Now if it is the road team doing to initial butt-kicking, they win the rematch around 80 percent of the time at home.

The point here is that while Louisiana Tech may be the better overall team, the end result from the first meeting shouldn’t have much of an impact if any into your handicap. Perhaps more important: Will Little Rock turn the ball over 19 times like it did in Ruston? How concerned should I be over Tech's recent road losses to Northwestern State and McNeese? Is Little Rock's 7-0 record at home for real? Bottom line Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Kansas State Wildcats vs. Gonzaga Bulldogs

Kansas State vs. Gonzaga -9 O/U 137
Recommendation: Gonzaga


Gonzaga comes off its first loss of the season, dropping an 85-74 decision at home to Illinois last Saturday. The Bulldogs ran into Illinois at its best as the Illini hit 11-of-26 three pointers in route to the upset win. I still have Gonzaga ranked in my top ten, however, and they will bounce back today against a Kansas State team that is not as dangerous as the Illini.

Illinois actually averages 11 made threes per game, and the three-point shot is the ultimate weapon for underdogs in college basketball. Kansas State only makes 5.6 per game and hits just 31.2% from behind the arc. They will have trouble getting their points inside as well against the tall Gonzaga front line. KSU plays a three-guard lineup with 6-5 Nino Williams and 6-7 Thomas Gipson up front. Gonzaga counters with a front court that goes 6-8, 6-8, 7-0, and should control the paint in this one.

While this is not a Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Tennessee looks to snap offensive cold streak

Wichita State at Tennessee -1.5

You can play all the defense in the world but at some point you have to be able to put the ball in the bucket and for Tennessee that has been a huge challenge of late. The Vols return home after scoring 36 and 38 points respectively against Georgetown and Virginia. They also netted only 45 points in a loss to Oklahoma State earlier this season. Wichita meanwhile is 9-0 with wins over VCU, DePaul and Iowa.


“We’ve got to get out in transition and run more,” guard Trae Golden said Tuesday. “We’re thinking too much. It will click for us.”

“They’re going to try and make it a tough night offensively for the opposing team,” WSU guard Demetric Williams said. “They work hard and they’re physical.”
