NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the Midwest Region

03.17.2014     07:59 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NCAA Tournament field is set and like most bettors, Sunday night is spent skimming through the first round matchups and forming initial thoughts and opinions. Keep in mind that a lot can change leading up to the start of the tournament – most notably where oddsmakers set the lines and where the betting markets drives said lines. For Monday's blog, I'll share my initial thoughts and opinions with our readers on all four regions.

Midwest
The Midwest features three of the four play-in winners with Cal Poly/Texas Southern taking on no. 1 seed Wichita State, Xavier-NC State vs. Saint Louis, and Iowa-Tennessee vs. UMass... I think it helps Kansas State that it got bounced in the first round of the Big XII Tournament whereas Kentucky played three games in three days and expended a ton of energy in the 61-60 SEC title game loss vs. Florida... No clue on who will emerge out of the three-team pod of SLU/NC State/Xavier. The Billikens seem a bit overrated and have trouble scoring at times, NC State is ultra-young, and Xavier is as flighty as they come... Of course the selection committee was going to pit a former Louisville assistant up against the Read more

West
As much as I love the Big Sky I can't even recall the last time they were competitive in the Big Dance. Weber State hasn't faced a defense even remotely close to that of Arizona. The closest was UCLA who trucked Weber, 83-60, in Los Angeles... I just got done looking at Gonzaga's resume and man, they didn't beat anyone. They lost to tournament teams Dayton, Kansas State, and Memphis and went 2-1 vs. a so-so BYU squad. That said, Mark Few vs. Travis Ford is a mismatch. I seem to remember Dana Altman and Oregon running OSU off the court in last year's tourney... Tough matchup for Oklahoma's young squad having to take on very experienced and talented North Dakota State. The Sooners losing in the first round of the Read more

East
Gotta be able to score at an efficient rate to compete with Virginia and first round opponent Coastal Carolina is one of the few teams in the tournament to average less than a point per possession (0.97). Pretty good blueprint of what to expect with Coastal losing to Clemson, 69-40... If you bet the Memphis-George Washington game, expect more than few missed free throws with both teams at 65% on the season... Harvard isn't your typical Ivy League team in that the Crimson has some decent athletes. They were only -2 in rebounding vs. UConn but shot 11-of-34, 32% from 2-point in the 61-56 loss... Delaware competed well against Villanova (84-80 loss), Notre Dame (80-75 loss) and Ohio State (76-64 loss). The Blue Read more

South
No surprise to see Florida earn the no. 1 seed and get to play just down the road in Orlando... Always funny to see the difference power ratings bettors use vs. the criteria of the selection committee with Colorado, a no. 8 seed and ranked 55th (Sagarin) and 64th (Ken Pom) vs. Pitt, a no. 9 seed (20th (Sagarin) and 18th (Ken Pom)... Obviously going to look at turnovers with games involving VCU. The Rams' first round foe, Stephen F. Austin, not only has a respectable turnover rate (16.8) but the Lumberjacks actually forced turnovers at a higher rate (24.1) in conference play than VCU (23.1) – albeit against the rather weak competition of the Southland... Pointless to look at Tulsa’s entire body of Read more

NBA Handicapping: Portland Trail Blazers hold players-only meeting

03.14.2014     06:23 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Losers of four straight, the Portland Trail Blazers held a players-only meeting following Wednesday's loss at San Antonio. After a day off, Portland plays at New Orleans this evening. There is currently no line on the game. LaMarcus Aldridge is expected to miss tonight and Sunday's game vs. Golden State with a lower back contusion.


“I just felt like it was something that needed to be said,” Lillard responded when ask why he initiated the dialogue. “At some point, it’s up to the players.”

“It’s time for a players-meeting when we see a little slippage,” Wright said. “Every team has two or three a year. I love the fact that this was the only one this season where guys really had to step up and be vocal leaders.

College Basketball Handicapping: UNLV at full strength vs. Wyoming

Wyoming at UNLV -8.5

It looks like UNLV will be at full strength – or close to it – for this afternoon's Mountain West Tournament first round matchup vs. Wyoming. Roscoe Smith (11.0 ppg, concussion) may not start but is expected to play. Same deal with Bryce Dejean-Jones (13.4 ppg, suspension). Khem Bitch (11.8 ppg) hurt his hip against San Diego State and has been limited in practice but will play.

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Red Wings at Columbus Blue Jackets

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Detroit +115 at Columbus O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Detroit


Columbus travels home in what was supposed to be a back-to-back situation for them.  Instead the Blue Jackets played a little over six minutes in last night’s game at Dallas before a medical emergency was declared and the game postponed. Dallas forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench with an irregular heartbeat and was saved by doctors before heading to the hospital.  Both teams were visibly shaken and the NHL decided not to continue the game.  Columbus boarded their plane and headed home with no doubt heavy hearts and drained emotions.  Detroit has been waiting to redeem themselves after a 3-0 loss to the NY Rangers on Sunday afternoon.  Detroit has gone 3-3 since the Olympic break without their star forward Pavel Datsyuk.  The Red Wings and Blue Jackets are in a dog fight for the last Eastern Conference playoff spots and I expect nothing less than a full 60 minute effort from the road side.  One has to wonder if Columbus left their minds back in Dallas last night.  At a plus price it is easy for me to back the Red Wings in a spot where Read more

NBA Handicapping: The Detroit Pistons probably don't even want to make the playoffs

03.11.2014     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It is high comedy watching these awful Eastern Conference teams lose on a nightly basis and yet technically remain in the "playoff hunt." The Detroit Pistons, losers of 10 of their last 12, are one of those squads. Following Sunday's 118-111 loss at Boston, it is abundantly clear that the only way the Pistons – or the Knicks for that matter – get into the postseason is by accident.


Defense is poor, transition defense especially so.  The Pistons are the worst free-throw-shooting team in the NBA, the second-worst 3-point-shooting team, and allow the fourth-most points, 103.8 per game.

"I think it's trust, guys trusting each other, guys willing to sacrifice for one another," he said.  "I think that's the main thing, trust and sacrifice."

"He was preaching every night, like, if we want to be great, we've got to hold each other accountable, if he ain't doing this, he ain't doing that, take him out," Jennings said of Billups.  "That's what he was mostly Read more

Summit League Championship Betting Preview: IPFW Mastodons vs. North Dakota State Bison

Summit League Championship
IPFW vs. North Dakota State
6 pm PT, Sioux Falls, ND
CRIS Opener:
North Dakota State -8 O/U 142.5
CRIS Current: North Dakota State -8 O/U 142
Rob Veno Power Rating: North Dakota State -7.5

Quick Take: Fort Wayne was the no. 2 seed but needed two wins to reach the championship. They had a day off in between games and didn't put forth much effort in their 85-47 first round victory over IUPUI. NDSU was the top seed and has played only one game since March 1. They cruised past Denver, 83-48, in the semifinals. Despite ranking seventh in the league in defensive efficiency (1.08 points per possession allowed), IPFW has held four of its last five foes to under 1.00 ppp. The Bison ranked no. 1 in both offensive (1.15) and defensive (0.99) efficiency. The two teams split during the regular season with the home side prevailing in both contests.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Betting Conference Tournaments

03.10.2014     07:33 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Big Dance gets all the headlines; all the media attention.  And it makes sense why that happens.  College basketball is way too big for the average fan.  More than 350 teams in more than 30 conferences are simply too much for non-hardcore hoops aficionados to handle.
And then there’s the bracket factor.  The entire country fills out brackets.  They’re easy to fill out, the seedings make sense to Joe Public, and after the first round, most of the obscure teams are gone.  Those obscure teams that survive are now public darlings, Cinderella stories that casual fans can understand and follow.

Forget fans – I’m no casual fan, and if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t either.  We’re sports bettors.  And for serious college basketball bettors, there’s absolutely no comparison between this week and next week.  This week, we’ve got dozens of Little Dances, the conference tournaments that are a sports bettors dream.  Next week, for the Big Dance, it’s still a betting bonanza, but not quite as good.  Here are my Top 6 reasons why.
