College Basketball Gambling Free Pick: Illinois Fighting Illini at Iowa Hawkeyes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Illinois at Iowa -4.5 O/U 135.5
Recommendation: Iowa


The betting markets seem to think that Illinois has turned the corner after reeling off six wins in its last seven games.  I’m not buying that argument.  Let me break down those six wins right here.
First, the Illini positively stole one at home against Indiana when DJ Richardson got hot down the stretch as the Hoosiers blew a 14-point second half lead.  Then they faced Minnesota when the Gophers were in the midst of their awful mid-season slump.  Then came one good win, a home blowout over Purdue.  Their last three victories have come against the three weakest teams in the conference (Penn State, Northwestern and Nebraska), and two of those three were tight – they barely squeaked past the Nittany Lions and had to rally from behind in the last six minutes on Senior Day to beat the Cornhuskers.

So for all of their recent success, Illinois’ recent hot streak Read more

Teddy Covers' Who Has What It Takes to Win the NCAA Tournament in 2013 Part I

03.04.2013     07:37 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
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 every year except for one, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams.  Last year was no exception.  I pegged Kansas as my title team, and they made it all the way to the national championship game against Kentucky before falling short.

Past predictions do not necessarily indicate future success, but I’ll stand by my track record in this article.  Remember, as always, this gets written before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the seedings are announced and before a single tournament game has been played.

I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament three times in the last six years, correctly predicting Florida in ’07, Kansas in ’08 and North Carolina in ’09.  I did NOT predict Duke in 2010, and didn’t even have UConn in the discussion in 2011.  

Here is a list of the last 15 NCAA champions and the teams they beat in the title game: Kentucky over Utah in ’98, UConn over Duke in ’99, Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Detroit Pistons at San Antonio Spurs

Detroit +12.5 at San Antonio O/U 200
Recommendation: Detroit


We’ll take a look at the Detroit Piston's plus the big points tonight against San Antonio. Injuries have started to really pile up for the Spurs with Stephen Jackson and Gary Neal doubtful and Boris Diaw and Tony Parker out. Parker is quietly having an MVP-type season with 21.0 ppg and 7.6 assists. The Spurs have been able to succeed when parts of the "Big Three" sit or are injured but without Parker as well as the other injuries, it becomes tough to cover big numbers like what we're seeing tonight. Detroit comes in rested after losing at New Orleans 100-95 on Friday. I expect this to be a lower scoring game which San Antonio has a tendency to win but not cover when laying big points. Look for Detroit’s Greg Monroe to have a big day in the paint and for the Pistons to cash as a +12.5 underdog.


10* NBA Last Call [17-5 +15 Unit NBA Streak] $20
Nobody is better in the NBA than Erin Rynning. He's amassed close to +140 units of profit while winning seven straight years in pro hoops. ER is dialed in hitting 17 of his last 22 NBA plays, and he's back with a last call NBA play for Sunday night. Yours for $20 it's guaranteed to cash or his next report is free.

College Basketball Gambling: Home team on 7-0 SU, 6-1 ATS run in Princeton-Harvard series

Harvard at Princeton -6 O/U 124

Big showdown in the Ivy League tonight with Harvard (9-1) headed to Princeton (7-2). The Crimson won the first meeting two weeks ago, 69-57. Some stats indicate that the Tigers have been one of the more unlucky teams in the country this season. Of their 14 wins, 12 were by double-digits. It's the close games where Princeton has had difficulty with losses by 1, 3, 6 (OT), 7, 3, 4, and 4. The home team has won seven straight in the series (6-1 ATS).


"The first half of the season was pretty rough," Tigers senior captain Ian Hummer said. "We dropped a few games we feel like we should’ve. But from all the games going on, that’s college basketball this year. Teams that are supposed to win are losing and teams that

NBA Handicapping: A look at the Dallas Mavericks from a W-L and ATS perspective

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

There was an article at Grantland yesterday that talked about how Dallas has picked up its tempo this year in a way that’s created offensive efficiency…particularly since Dirk Nowitzki returned to the starting lineup on January 5. One of the main points the author was trying to make was that Dallas has been playing winning basketball since Dirk was ready to go as a starter…

“Since he returned to the starting lineup on January 5, the team is a much more respectable 12-11 with an even healthier scoring margin of +3.8. Since that date, this year’s group has posted an offensive rating of 107.2, which would tie them for fourth in the league had it been their mark for the entire season and falls just short of the team’s championship-level figure.”

NCAA Basketball Gambling: Indiana, Florida, and Memphis all falter on the road

March has its Madness. Late February college basketball doesn’t have anything to get excited about beyond the fact that it’s a “Prelude to March Madness.” As a result, this stretch of calendar historically has seen many subpar efforts from college powers. The kids can’t concentrate on their homework because Christmas is coming.

Tonight, the top two computer teams in the Jeff Sagarin and Ken Pomeroy rankings both lost outright as road favorites. One guy has Indiana #1 and Florida #2, the other has it the other way. Our estimate of market Power Ratings also had those teams as the top two last time we looked. Tonight’s boxscores from Minnesota and Tennessee show the visiting powers were linked up in “lack of focus” categories as well…

Two-Point Defense

Indiana allowed 53% inside the arc, Florida allowed 49%

College Basketbal Betting Free Pick: Auburn Tigers at Alabama Crimson Tide

Auburn +11.5 at Alabama O/U 119
Recommendation: Auburn


Alabama hasn’t been just bad a home chalk in SEC play…they’ve been abysmal! The results don’t lie as the Crimson Tide enter tonight’s rivalry showdown against Auburn on a dreadful 0-6 ATS run in their six SEC home games as favorites. They had single-digit home wins against Tennessee, Arkansas, LSU and Texas A&M – none of which were enough for a pointspread cover as home favorites. Alabama was only able to beat SEC bottom feeders Mississippi State by 8 as 15-point home favorites and South Carolina by 10 as 12-point home favorites. The spot is not good either for the home team tonight. Alabama is coming off a wild triple OT thriller at LSU coming up just short 97-94 after blowing a 10-point lead with 2 minutes left. That isn’t the kind of loss that is easy to rebound from especially when you are talking about a team needing to win by a significant margin.

NBA Betting Recap: Tired Lakers Outscored 33-3 on Fast Breaks

This is why back-to-backs in Denver are worth more than one point in the line! The Los Angeles Lakers were truly behind the eight-ball Monday night, trying to hang with rested Denver at altitude one day after winning a nailbiter in Dallas.

Let’s run the numbers then talk some more about the Lakers…

Denver 119, LA Lakers 108

2-Point Percentage: Lakers 61%, Denver 63%

3-Point Shooting: Lakers 8/19, Denver 5/18

Free Throws: Lakers 14/31, Denver 16/27

1’s and 2’s: Lakers 84, Denver 104

Rebounds: Lakers 36, Denver 44

Turnovers: Lakers 15, Denver 8

The Lakers did shoot well inside the arc because Denver was inviting a fast pace. They didn’t mind trading baskets if it meant the Lakers were going to run out of gas. You see “out of gas” flashing all over that boxscore:

*Just 14 of 31 on free throws for the Lakers…which was 9 of 11 from Kobe Bryant Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Fade the Dead in College Hoops

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s late February, and there’s still two more full weeks of regular season action in college hoops before the madness truly begins. It’s too early to write about conference tournament betting strategies – I’ll save that for next week. But it’s not too late to write about the bevy of ‘dead’ teams that are populating the college hoops landscape right now; teams that are lethargically playing out the string of the regular season. Sometimes, the sharp move is to lay big points fading sorry teams.

Even bad teams have hope in November – the season is fresh and new; teammates aren’t sick and tired of each other or their coaches, and the nagging injuries haven’t started to pile up. And teams that get smacked around in non-conference play for two months get an opportunity to regroup against comparable competition when conference play begins in January.

But when things go south in conference play, it’s not easy for many of these squads to continue competing at the same level they were earlier in the season. By late February, the final few weeks of the regular season are a meat grinder for struggling Read more

Take a piece of graph paper, and turn it sideways so you’re looking at it like it’s the same shape as the screen on your laptop (short and wide like a cutting board as opposed to tall and skinny like notebook paper).

Down the left side, right the names of the 30 NBA teams. I do it by divisions because it’s easier for me to think of the teams in clusters like that. You may prefer alphabetically because it’s easier to look for a certain team. Whatever. There should be at least 30 lines if you have a typical piece of graph paper. If you don’t…find one that has at least 30 lines so that each team will have a row going across.

Now, across the top of the paper, write the days of the month. You’re building a calendar. There’s room in each little box to write a number. You should know what month it is…so you don’t have to write F22, F23, F24 if it’s February. Just the numbers should do unless you’re a Read more
