NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the South Region

03.17.2014     07:50 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.

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

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

03.11.2014     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly

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.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Penn State Nittany Lions at Minnesota Golden Gophers

Penn State +7 at Minnesota O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Penn State


Is Minnesota downright desperate for a victory today against Penn State? You damn right it is. Does desperation translate into success? Negative. Minnesota is going in the wrong direction. Richard Pitino's team has lost seven of its last 10 games, making a victory at The Barn tonight vs. PSU an absolute must. Not only that, but then the Gophers are going to most likely need a pair of wins at next week's Big Ten Tournament in order to feel good about their chances of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Penn State is playing solid basketball right now, covering the number in each of its last three games. The Nittany Lions have won outright in three of their last five road assignments, including a 59-32 win at Northwestern on Thursday night. PSU probably has the most underrated backcourt in the country. Coming off a torn ACL last season, senior point guard Tim Frazier has enjoyed another stellar campaign to cap off what has been an outstanding collegiate career. Frazier has scored in double figures in nine consecutive games. The fifth-year senior is averaging 15.6 Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Purdue Boilermakers

Northwestern at Purdue -9 O/U 123
Recommendation: Purdue


Purdue has played a brutal slate down the stretch facing what could very well be five NCAA Tournament bound squads – three of those five contests on the road. The Boilers haven't quit either, losing to Michigan in overtime, Iowa by single digits in Iowa City, and by six up in Madison on Wednesday. No question Matt Painter and the team are frustrated but today marks a great opportunity to feel good for a change. Not much of any motivation for the Northwestern side as it limps into this contest short on bodies and scoring ability. We saw the fatigue of the season and the loss of JerShon Cobb really play out in Thursday's embarrassing 59-32 loss to Penn State. Today is a situation that if the Wildcats get down there is simply no reason to put up much of a fight with the Big Ten Tournament just around the corner. Also note that in the first meeting between these teams, Purdue had the game won not once, but twice, but managed to lose in double OT. It's been that kind of season for the Boilermakers but I feel that they are sitting on a solid showing today. As with all Northwestern games, the Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 3-7-2014

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Syracuse has lost four of its last five games and don’t forget, it nearly lost the two games preceding this five-game slump. The Orange needed miracle plays in the waning seconds to win at Pitt (on Tyler Ennis's buzzer beater) and at home vs. NC State. Jim Boeheim's team travels to Tallahassee on Sunday to face a Florida State team that's on  the bubble and in dire need of a victory. Will starting power forward Jerami Grant be able to go against the Seminoles? As of late Friday afternoon, Grant remained 'questionable' due to a back injury. He was unable to play in this week's home loss to Georgia Tech. Grant averages 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Kansas will play without freshman center Joel Embiid for a second straight game Saturday at West Virginia. Embiid is resting back and knee injuries in hopes of getting back to 100 percent before next week's Big 12 Tournament. Embiid averages 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game. The Jayhawks covered the spread without their shot blocker in Wednesday's blowout win over Texas Tech.

Texas center Jonathan Holmes (13.2 PPG) rested a sore knee during Wednesday's 66-54 non-covering win Read more
