College Basketball Betting: La Salle hopes to avoid letdown, maintain success vs. UMass

01.30.2013     07:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
UMass at La Salle -9

It's been a competitive series but La Salle has gotten the better of UMass seven out of the last eight meetings (7-1 ATS). Note that during that span, neither team was favored by more than -5. The Explorers are off significant back-to-back wins over Butler and VCU.

“I think our guys realize that we were 0-2 against them last year and that we got crushed down there,” Kellogg said. “If they don’t, I’m going to remind them, just to let them know that this is a tough place to go in and play.”

“Losing to them guys left a bad taste in our mouth,” he said. “Most guys are riled up for it.”

College Basketball Betting: Rutgers' opponents hold edge due to extra prep time

01.30.2013     07:06 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Rutgers at Cincinnati -11.5

It makes sense that in the Big East, teams with extra time to rest and prepare would have a significant advantage over those who had a short turnaround. That appears to be the case with Rutgers (3-5 SU/ATS vs. Big East) who has played a handful of rested-and-ready conference foes. Of their eight Big East games, opponents had on average nearly an extra day more to prepare for the Scarlet Knights. Last week, UConn had a full week to prep for Rutgers – the Huskies won and covered (-8.5) 66-54. Tonight, Cincinnati plays its first game since last Monday and of course plays host to Rutgers who during that span played two contests.

"It's just the preparation in what you're able to do with preparing your team," Rice said. "It seems like the

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Illinois State Redbirds at Bradley Braves

01.29.2013     11:39 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Illinois State -4.5 at Bradley
Recommendation: Illinois State

Illinois State was a juggernaut for most of their non-conference campaign.  The Redbirds took Northwestern (with Drew Crawford still healthy) to overtime.  They came three points short of upsetting Louisville at the KFC Yum Center.  They went to Dayton and won straight up.  There was talk about the Missouri Valley Conference being a three bid league this year.

But once conference play started, the Redbirds slumped – six consecutive SU and ATS losses.  Facing a circle the wagons came at Southern Illinois, Illinois State led by 26 at halftime on their way to a 14 point road win.  They followed that up with back-to-back home wins over Indiana State and Evansville, getting their confidence level back to where it was a month ago.  Facing a Bradley team that they have dominated in recent years – seven straight wins in the series, including a pair Read more

College Basketball Betting: NC State looks to avoid letdown at Virginia

01.29.2013     07:15 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
NC State at Virginia -4 O/U 126

Another potentially letdown situation tonight for NC State who last time out snapped a 13-game losing streak to North Carolina. Earlier this season, the Wolfpack defeated Duke and then lost to Maryland the following game. In defense of NC State, Maryland has talent, was playing at home, and the Terps failed to cover -3 in the 51-50 victory. Virginia enters tonight 4-2 in ACC play with wins by 9, 30, 16, and 14. Last season the Cavaliers won 61-60 in Raleigh during the regular season but NC State won 67-64 in the first round of the ACC Tournament.

“This is new territory for our team, this is uncharted waters,” Wolfpack coach Mark Gottfried said during Monday's coaches teleconference. “We’ve got a lot of guys that have not been in these types of situations.

College Basketball Betting: After three straight losses, Louisville calls Pitt game 'must win'

Pittsburgh at Louisville -6.5 O/U 123.5

The Louisville Cardinals have lost three straight. You know what that means. Head coach Rick Pitino threw out the dreaded "must win" for tonight's game against Pitt.

“We have to get this win. It’s a must game for us,” Louisville coach Rick Pitino told reporters after Saturday’s loss. “Because four (losses in a row), now you’re on the verge of getting a sub-.500 record in the league, and you don’t want to mess with that.”

College Basketball Betting: Injury concerns for Utah Utes

01.27.2013     08:59 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Stanford -3 at Utah

Plenty of injury concerns for the Utah Utes as they play host to Stanford tonight. Senior guard Jarred DuBois (12.0) didn't start in Thursday's loss to Cal and played only nine minutes in the second half. He's expected to start and play more minutes tonight. Freshman forward Jordan Loveridge (12.7 ppg) has been battling the flu and may not be able to play due to concussion-like symptoms suffered against Cal. Stanford opened -2 and was bet up to -3. The Cardinal are 1-4 SU on the highway with their lone win by two points. Also note that Utah's crowd support may be lacking due to Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Laws of Math Finally Catching Up with Arizona

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Earlier this season…

*The Arizona Wildcats needed some home cooking to steal a game from the Florida Gators in Tucson. Arizona was +12 in made free throws in a game they only won by a point. Note that Florida took 34 shots inside the arc, but was only sent to the charity stripe for eight free throw attempts. Arizona took 24 shots inside the arc but got to shoot 21 free throws. As others have pointed out (most notably Ken Pomeroy), that one result has warped the AP and coaches poll for weeks since.

*The Arizona Wildcats were fortunate to survive a neutral court naibliter against San Diego State. They won by one point despite getting outshot and outrebounded. Again, their ability to get to the line and make free throws helped.

*The Arizona Wildcats needed a MIRACLE to force overtime at home against Colorado. You probably remember the disputed three-pointer at the buzzer that led to the extra period.

*The Arizona Wildcats didn’t exactly set Read more

College Basketball Betting: MAAC teams continue to streak against the spread

01.25.2013     10:58 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Check out some of the wild against the spread runs the MAAC has produced of late.

Canisius - A money earner during non-conference play (6-2 ATS) the betting markets caught up to the Golden Griffins who are on a 1-5 ATS slide in conference action.

Fairfield - The Stags have been streaky. They failed to cover a single pointspread during November, ripped off five of their next six, but have struggled in MAAC play covering only one of their last six games.

Manhattan - The Jaspers struggled mightily following the loss of do-everything guard George Beamon (16.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg) who was lost for the year in early December. But they've been ultra-competitive in MAAC play (+5 scoring through eight games) and as a result have cashed five of their last six tickets.

Niagara - The Purple Eagles have morphed into a title contender with seven straight league wins. They covered all but one of those contests.

Rider - The hottest team in the league, the Broncs have won five straight and covered seven straight. They are a perfect 8-0 ATS vs. the MAAC heading into tonight's Read more

Under Tubby Smith, Minnesota has been money burners ATS vs. Big Ten

01.25.2013     06:49 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Telling editorial on the state of the Minnesota program under head coach Tubby Smith. Smith has been criticized for not willing to take the blame when his teams fall short. He's also been known to throw a player or two under the bus. The Gophers have dropped three straight including a dismal 55-48 loss at Northwestern last time out. Interesting to note that this is Smith's six year and in Big Ten regular season play he's a dismal 41-55 SU and 41-54-1 ATS (not one winning season ATS). The Golden Gophers are 4-2 ATS vs. the Big Ten this year but as mentioned appear to be trending the other way. Minnesota travels to Wisconsin Saturday.
