NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets at Toronto Raptors

Charlotte at Toronto -6 O/U 202
Recommendation: Toronto

My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against the Hornets last night. There’s little reason to think that Charlotte will be significantly more competitive as they step up in class against a focused foe on the second night of back-to-backs tonight. Let me start with an excerpt from yesterday’s write-up, with the numbers edited slightly to reflect current realities:

“Charlotte was a playoff team last year, finishing with 48 wins and the #6 seed. The markets still remember and respect that team, in some ways overshadowing the 33-41 squad from this year in the betting world. The Hornets did their best to blow a 25 point second half lead against a Suns team playing on the second night of back-2-backs in their last game, on the heels of a defensive no-show against the Cavs in their previous contest. And the betting markets are offering us legitimate value with wiseguy steam showing for Charlotte in early betting action today.”

There’s been steam on Charlotte again today, pushing the line down to -5.5 as I write this Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: UCLA Bruins vs. Kentucky Wildcats

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
UCLA -1 vs. Kentucky O/U 165.5
Recommendation: Under

When Kentucky and UCLA met in non-conference play back in December, the game was an instant classic; a 97-92 Bruins victory in a high octane shootout. Both teams played fast – a frenetic tempo from a pair of teams that were struggling mightily on defense at the time. And both teams shot the ball well, combining for 47% shooting from the floor, including 18 made three-pointers. No surprise, then, that the rematch is the single highest totaled game in the NCAA Tournament so far.
But there’s little reason to expect the high stakes rematch to be played in similar fashion. That was then. This is now.

John Calipari spent the back half of the season coaching up the Kentucky defense. It’s worked! The lengthy, athletic Wildcats are wreaking havoc on the defensive end of the court in recent weeks. Only one of their last nine opponents has scored more than 70 points against them, with Kentucky holding foes under 40% from the floor during that span. No surprise, then, that the Wildcats are 8-1 to the Under in those last nine ballgames, including a snail’s Read more

NCAA Tournament Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Princeton Tigers vs. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

Princeton vs. Notre Dame -6.5 O/U 135
Recommendation: Notre Dame


Pointspreads tend to be very accurate by this time of the year.  Both the oddsmakers and the broader betting markets have a full seasons worth of data to punch into their computers.  The end result is that the numbers -- both sides and total -- are consistently right where they are supposed to be.

So when bettors are looking for an edge at this time of the year, they’re going to have to dig for information that is not factored into the numbers.  Given the full season results and stats for Princeton and Notre Dame, this pointspread is as accurate as it gets.  But when it comes to key tidbits of info?  Well, that’s where we can find an edge.

Princeton was forced to leave New Jersey on Monday due to the East Coast blizzard; more than 24 hours ahead of schedule.  That wouldn’t necessarily be a big deal, except for the fact that the Tigers played in the first ever Ivy League Championship Game on Sunday, creating a mad scramble for a team from a conference that has never had a conference tourney Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Blackhawks at Montreal Canadiens

Chicago +105 at Montreal O/U 5
Recommendation: Chicago


Two Original Six clubs clash in "La Metropole" tonight, as the Chicago Blackhawks open a three-game north-of-the-border road trip against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs return home off of a four-game road trek of their own where they went 3-1 including a recent 4-1 victory over Edmonton. Montreal has won eight of its last 10 games overall and have recaptured the top spot in the Atlantic Division race with only 12 games remaining after tonight. The Canadiens however will have their hands full with Chicago, who is not only playing very sharp hockey as of late (13-3 streak, 8-1 on the road) but the Hawks have had the Habs' number over the years with six straight wins and a 8-0-2 mark in their last 10 meetings. Superstar Patrick Kane notched his 30th goal on Sunday in a big 4-2 victory over division rival Minnesota and goaltender Corey Crawford was sensational between the pipes, blocking 42 shots on net. The Montreal native has played very well against the club he watched as a kid, with a lifetime 6-0-2 mark versus the Habs. With the Blackhawks' solid 7-1 run as an Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Valparaiso Crusaders at Illinois Fighting Illini

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Valparaiso at Illinois -9 O/U 140
Recommendation: Illinois


Valparaiso accepted the last at-large bid into the NIT tournament as a 7th seed and will face second seed Illinois. The Crusaders return to the court for the first time since they scored just 12 points in the first half of an evental 43-41 loss to UW-Milwaukee in the quarterfinals of the Horizon League tournament.

Illinois (18-14) enters the NIT in a unique spot as interim coach Jamall Walker take over after John Groce was fired over the weekend. The good news for Illinois is that the Crusaders' best player, Alec Peters, is out with an injury. Peters led Valpo with 23 ppg and 10 rpg. He's a Big Ten caliber player and one that is likely to have him name called in the NBA Draft. Not having to account for Peters gives an already solid Illinois defense a big edge.

Here's what Walker had to say about the situation: "It's the NIT," Walker said. " It's who's prepared and ready to play. Who's excited to play, who wants to play more than anything else." Walker says expects his players, especially the seniors, to go out with a bang. He compares his team to a Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Who Has What It Takes to Win the Big Dance Part I

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams. Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Three years ago, Kevin Ollie’s Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

Here is a list of the last 19 NCAA champions and the teams they beat in the title game: Kentucky over Utah in ’98, UConn over Duke in ’99, Michigan St over Florida in 2000, Duke over Arizona in ’01, Maryland over Indiana in ’02, Syracuse over Kansas in Read more

College Basketball Gambling: How to bet Match Madness

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
College Basketball conference tournaments heat up this week with the power conferences getting underway. It’s the the perfect time to look at some of the key handicapping factors that can assist in bettors profiting during the postseason.

While everyone is obviously motivated during the postseason, there are situations where teams may be looking towards bigger and better things. Earning one of the four no. 1 seeds is something most teams seek but it isn’t always worth the emotional and physical drain of winning three games in three days. Then there are those teams who aren’t in the hunt for a top seed but also comfortably in the Big Dance. Their performance in the conference tournament has the ability to impact their seed but this profile is very vulnerable to upsets against lesser teams desperate for wins.

Depth and injuries is another key factor when handicapping March. Teams that make a run in the conference tournaments can play as many as four games in four days. There are going to be a handful of first round upsets in these conference tournaments and the first thing I’m looking at with the winner is how many minutes the starters Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Power conference tournament odds

03.06.2017     09:22 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Power conference tournaments get underway this week. Let’s take a quick look at each league’s future odds.

ACC - This year's tourney takes place at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. All 13 teams are in the first with the top four seeds (North Carolina, Florida State, Notre Dame, and Louisville) receiving byes to the quarterfinals. Top seed UNC is the betting favorite at +145 followed by Louisville (+270) and fifth seed Duke (+280).

PAC-12 - The league returns to Las Vegas but will play in the new T-Mobile Arena. Oregon is the top seed and the betting favorite at +125 followed by third seed UCLA (+140) and second seed Arizona (+210). The last three title games have featured a 1 vs. 2 matchup.

Big Ten - Oddly, the conference tournament will be held at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. Top seed Purdue is the favorite at +145 followed by Wisconsin at +190. Perhaps a good league to take a shot with an underdog as half the league finished 12-6, 11-7 or 10-8.

Big XII - Per usual, the tournament will be held at the Sprint Center in Kansas City and Kansas is the top seed and favorite at even money. Third seed Baylor appears to have Read more

NHL Handicapping: Targeting teams to make money on the second half of the season

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
As the NHL season approaches Wednesday’s trade deadline, it is time to take a look at some teams that I have targeted as “bet on” and “bet against” moving forward.

The Boston Bruins stand out as a potential “bet on” squad. Boston has enjoyed a rejuvenation of energy and team chemistry after dismissing head coach Claude Julien and handing it over to interim Bruce Cassidy. The Bruins are 6-1 since the coaching change and have scored 3+ goals in all but one of those games. Cassidy put an emphasis on wanting his team attack more offensively which explains why they over on a 4-2-1 O/U run under his watch. But while the offense has enjoyed an uptick in production, defense and goaltending that will determine just how far they go. The Bruins have an aging, slow of foot Zdeno Chara anchoring the blue line and a bunch of newcomers and youngsters on the back end. Adam McQuaid and Torrey Krug are solid defenders but this unit is still a work in progress.

The Nashville Predators have underachieved at times this season but have played their best stretch of hockey of the season with three straight wins. Their offense has been on fire of Read more
