College Basketball Betting Free Play: Ohio State Buckeyes at Illinois Fighting Illini

Ohio State -4.5 at Illinois O/U 124
Recommendation: Ohio State


Both of these Big Ten schools have had their share of problems this season. Ohio State was ranked in the top 10 before dropping five of six games in conference play. The Buckeyes managed to turns things around some by winning four of five before losing at home to Michigan last time out. Overall, OSU (6-6 Big Ten) does have nice road wins at Wisconsin and Iowa as well as home wins over Illinois and Purdue and are currently 6-6 in conference play.  Ohio State is +0.06 PPP in conference play; one of only five Big Ten teams with a positive efficiency rate. On the other hand, Illinois is just 3-9 in conference play and is -0.09 PPP. They have a home win over Indiana and two wins over Penn State but suffered an eight game losing streak in between wins over the Nittany Lions. They Illini are coming off another loss, 67-58, at Nebraska and have been plagued by an inability to generate offense. Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 2-14-2014

02.14.2014     06:17 PM     Brian Edwards     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Michigan State senior center Adreian Payne is back and he's 100 percent healthy (and lethal) after missing seven games. Payne led the Spartans to Thursday's 85-70 home win over Northwestern by scoring 20 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. Payne scored 24 points in last Sunday's loss at Wisconsin. Tom Izzo is happy to have Payne back, but he's now without starting guard Keith Appling, who has a wrist injury that has forced him to miss the first three games of his career. Appling averages 15.0 points and 4.9 assists per game. He continues to get treatment but is probably at least a week away from returning. Branden Dawson remains out (hand) and won't be back for at least two more weeks.

Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid is listed as 'questionable' for Saturday's home game vs. TCU, but I'll be very surprised if he plays. Bill Self clearly indicated after Monday's loss at Kansas St. that Embiid needed some rest before the stretch drive. Embiid has been bothered by a sprained knee and an ailing back, and his presence certainly isn't required against the Horned Frogs. Embiid averages 10.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game. Also, the status of Jamari Taylor is Read more

College Basketball Gambling: DePaul loses leading scorer Melvin

02.12.2014     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
DePaul announced that leading scorer Cleveland Melvin is no longer enrolled at school. Melvin was suspended two weeks ago for an undisclosed violation. Melvin was one of the few legitimate Big East caliber players Oliver Purnell was able to recruit and develop. The Blue Demons were 0-4 SU, 2-2 ATS without Melvin.


“I can't make any comments because of privacy acts and that kind of thing,” coach Oliver Purnell told WSCR-AM 670 on Monday night. “But the bottom line is he's no longer a part of our team and we've got to move on.”

Asked how his players handled the news, Purnell told the Score, “They reacted fine, they went out and practiced. I can't tell you how they reacted in their private moments ... but the guys who are here, on our team, are moving forward.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: College Basketball Pointspread Underachievers

02.10.2014     07:56 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week I wrote about the four best pointspread teams in the country in college hoops this year – Cleveland State, Villanova, Wichita State and Utah. Between the four, they combined to go 7-1 ATS over the past week, continuing to cover spreads even after doing so consistently for the past three months. In other words, the markets still haven’t caught up with these teams.

This week, I’m taking the opposite approach; examining the very worst pointspread teams in all of college basketball. Why are they so bad against the spread? Will they continue to be money losers as February rolls into March? And what statistical profile do these teams have in common that will help us identify them as early as possible next year? Let’s take a look!

I did a version of this column last year at this same time (second week of February). At that time, the single worst pointspread team in all of college basketball was Indiana-Purdue Indianapolis, abbreviated IUPUI. This year, IUPUI isn’t the single worst pointspread team in college hoops only because they’re tied with South Alabama and LaSalle at the bottom of the ATS Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Creighton Bluejays at St. John's Red Storm

Creighton at St. John's +2.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: St. John's


After losing five straight games, including a pair of nail-biters at the end of the slump, St. John's has caught fire. Any opinions on the Steve Lavin era in Queens are incomplete, and, if he has it his way, those thoughts from the peanut gallery will be of a positive nature.

Lavin took over at UCLA for Jim Harrick after his drama led to his pre-Athens demise in 1996-97, leading the Bruins to five consecutive Sweet 16 appearances and six straight Tournament bids before the wheels came off in a disastrous 2002-2003 year that prompted his dismissal.

Lavin, a Gene Keady protégé who paid his dues at Purdue as an assistant from 1988-1991, is in his fourth season at St. John's. He took the Red Storm to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in a decade in his initial campaign in Queens. However, Lavin was diagnosed with prostate cancer the following year and missed most of the 2011-12 campaign, a season in which the Red Storm failed to qualify for the postseason.

Following an NIT bid last year, the pressure was on for the Johnnies coming into Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Brooklyn Nets at Detroit Pistons

Brooklyn +1.5 at Detroit O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Brooklyn


The Detroit Pistons certainly qualify for one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA this season after making a splash in the off-season by signing Josh Smith. The Pistons were clearly expected to solidify themselves as a solid Eastern Conference playoff team. However, even in a completely watered down conference, they’re on the outside looking in at the playoffs, while winning less than 40% of their games. While shot selection and efficiency were expected to be sore spots with Brandon Jennings and Smith as key cogs from an offensive usage standpoint, lack of defense has been the main issue. With big bodies Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Smith patrolling the paint, their inside resistance should be much better. The Pistons are off another disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic, which included a dustup between head coach Mo Cheeks and guard Will Bynum. Meanwhile, the Nets have turned their season around winning 12 of Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: ACC pace of play remains slow

02.07.2014     06:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on the slow tempo of ACC play this year. Two-thirds of the league is averaging less than 63 possessions per game and three squads are below 60.


“It’s whatever a coach feels comfortable with,” said North Carolina coach Roy Williams, whose club is the lone ACC representative in the tempo top 20. “I want to play a lot faster than we’re playing right now, it frustrates me that I can’t get us playing faster, yet the other team has a great deal to say about that. When they want to spend more time with shot clock, it does make it difficult. If it’s better players, higher-caliber teams, it’s harder to get them out of their pace.”



ACC Conference Play Tempo - 2014/13
Boston College - 61.1/63.5
Clemson - 58.2/62.0
Duke - 62.5/67.7
Florida State - 61.8/63/3
Georgia Tech - 64.8/67.0
Maryland - 68.2/67.6
Miami - 56.7/64.0

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Auburn Tigers at South Carolina Gamecocks

Auburn at South Carolina -2.5 O/U 146
Recommendation: South Carolina


Auburn hasn’t won a road game this year, and they’re riding a 1-8 ATS streak on the highway dating back to last year.  Tony Barbee’s squad lacks veteran depth, and they’ve been abysmal defensively once they leave the friendly confines of Auburn Arena; particularly on the perimeter where they’ve allowed opponents to shoot 40 percent from three point land. 

And Auburn is a tad bit fat and happy off back-to-back home wins, their first two wins in SEC play.  Even after those wins, the Tigers are still just 4-13 ATS in their last 17 against conference foes; a consistent pointspread underachiever.  And the Tigers biggest weakness offensively – turnovers in bunches; with an 0.63 assist-to-turnover ratio on the road this year – plays right into the Gamecocks defensive strength.

Sure, South Carolina doesn’t Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: College Basketball Pointspread Juggernauts

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror after Sunday’s huge Seattle blowout, which can only mean one thing – college hoops is on center stage for the next eight weeks. I’ve been writing game previews for ESPN.com/Insider, but I’ve yet to write a true college basketball overview column so far this season. It’s time!

I’m going take a look at the four very best regular board pointspread teams in the country in this week’s column.  Elite level teams aren’t necessarily pointspread winners, and bottom feeders can cash ticket after ticket if the betting markets set numbers that allow them to hang within the number as big underdogs. And the very best pointspread teams tend to be under-the-radar type squads, like the single best ATS team in college hoops thusfar in the 2013-14 campaign.

Cleveland State has a decent record, sitting in a second place tie in the Horizon League standings with a 6-3 mark in conference; 15-9 SU overall. If the NCAA tournament started today, Gary Waters’ Vikings wouldn’t even sniff an at-large bid – they’ll need to win the league tournament to go Read more
