College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State with strong track record off of a loss

Michigan State -5 at Purdue O/U 140

For the last month, Michigan State has traded off wins and losses as it enters tonight's game at Purdue off a 60-51 home defeat vs. Nebraska. Over the last two regular seasons, the Spartans are 10-2 SU, 8-3 ATS (one game was not lined) off of a loss. MSU has also been a beast on the road, covering seven of its last eight contests. Keith Appling was expected to miss extended time but played 19 minutes against the Cornhuskers. He's reportedly good to go for tonight.


“I have five Big Ten games left in my final go-round as a Spartan,” he said, “and I plan on playing in all five of them.”

“You have to act like you have on Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Minnesota's defense on the upswing

Illinois at Minnesota -7.5 O/U 129.5

Article on Minnesota's recent defensive improvements. Seasonally, the Gophers rank 10th in the Big Ten in points per possession allowed (1.06) but last time out they held Northwestern to 0.81 and also puts the clamps on Indiana (0.94). They'll still have issues with the better offenses in the Big Ten but against Illinois and Ohio State (Sat.), Minny is primed for more strong outputs.


“We’ve played much better defense,” Gophers coach Richard Pitino said. “The numbers may not indicate it as much, but … [on Sunday] that was the most fundamentally sound we’ve been all year.”

“Guys are coming together and realizing that if we want to win games, we’re going to have to defend,” he said.

NC State at Clemson -4 O/U 120
Recommendation: Under


Like Northwestern, Clemson has played a ridiculous amount of slow paced, low scoring games. In 12 ACC contests, the Tigers have topped 120 points only four times in regulation – two came against up-tempo Duke and North Carolina and another against Boston College (122) who sports one of the worst defenses in college basketball. Last time out, despite only 53 possessions, Clemson and Virginia hit 121. That final is some deceiving as both teams had 90 points with five minutes to go. NC State is a young squad that has a tendency to let its opponent dictate tempo. In games against Duke and North Carolina, there were possessions and points galore. But we've seen the Wolfpack play grinders as well: 56-55 vs. Miami, 56-55 vs. Syracuse, 76-45 vs. Virginia. Overall, both squads average less than a point per possession in conference play and with the pace Read more

College Basketball Betting: Texas Tech slows things down in up-tempo Big XII

Kansas -8 at Texas Tech

Tubby Smith has his Texas Tech squad playing some sneaky-good basketball of late with wins over both Oklahoma schools and pointspread covers in eight of its last ten. In a conference loaded with high scoring, up-tempo teams, Smith has wisely slowed down the pace of TTU's games. The Red Raiders average only 62 possessions per game in league play and as a result have cashed five straight unders.


“They’re a lot better,” KU coach Bill Self said. “Tubby’s done a fabulous job, he and his staff. They’re playing hard. They are on a roll right now. They are playing great. What they did in Norman (68-60 win), having them down 20 in the second half, was certainly impressive. We know how easily OU scores.”

“We’ve got to go out and be prepared to win the game,” KU sophomore Andrew White III said. “That team is tough. They’ve had some big wins this year. We need that win desperately. We’ll practice, prepare like we Read more

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
Submitted by Brian Edwards

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 Betting Free Play: Canisius Golden Griffins at Niagara Purple Eagles

Canisius -4.5 at Niagara O/U 158
Recommendation: Canisius


We cashed in with a MAAC road favorite last night in Manhattan’s 86-69 blowout win over Rider and I think we have another rock solid opportunity tonight backing another road favorite with Canisius. Despite being one of the worst teams in the MAAC, Niagara has stepped up with two of its better efforts in their last two home games against conference powers Iona and Manhattan. Niagara lost those two games by a single point. Those were bitter defeats for the Purple Eagles who had opportunities but failed to get that key basket or defensive stop down the stretch to turn. This could be a tough situation for a full effort while the Golden Griffins are likely to be in a focused and intense mood after dropping two straight to Iona and Manhattan.

Canisius defeated Niagara in the previous meeting earlier this season 87-74. Niagara had no answers defensively for Billy Baron who piled up 31 points on 10-for-17 shooting. Niagara’s only real offensive threat, Antoine Mason, got his points in the previous meeting but the Griffins did a good job of keeping everyone else under wraps. Chris Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Michigan State Spartans

Northwestern at Michigan State -14 O/U 119.5
Recommendation: Under


Thanks to a big push towards the over I see no reason not to play Northwestern under the total...again. In listening to Chris Collins, it is clear the Wildcats have zero depth and as a result must slow down the pace of the game and focus nearly all of their attention on playing defense and keeping the game close. Offensively, Northwestern has topped a point per possession once in Big Ten play whereas they've failed to top 0.90 in 8 out of 11 games. On the road against arguably the best defense in the league, it'll be a struggle to top 50 points. Michigan State meanwhile has had its issues offensively due to injuries. Tom Izzo noted that the team's desire to push the pace has been hampered because of not being able to play with the ideal personnel. The first meeting featured 94 points and 54 possessions. Even with drastic improvement on a number of fronts, topping 120 will be Read more

More proof Brent Musburger is the uncle you wished you had

02.13.2014     08:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's a nice read to start your day. ESPN's Fran Fraschilla gives the scoop on Brent Musburger's "relationship" with sports betting.


When asked about Musburger's Super Bowl bets:

"We try to keep that with double entendres. We try to not let people know, but of course they do know. But Brent's at the stage of his career that I don't think he cares what anyone thinks. He just wants to have a great time, and quite frankly, at his age he absolutely loves what he's doing and I'm just thrilled to be along for the ride on these Mondays."

When asked if Musburger loves gambling as much as it seems:

"I don't think it's as big a deal as he makes it out to be, but he has a lot of friends in that world, let's put it that way."










College Basketball Betting Free Play: Utah State Aggies at Colorado State Rams

Utah State at Colorado State -4.5 O/U 134
Recommendation: Colorado State


Utah State’s next win and cover on the Mountain West highway will be their first.  The Aggies are 0-5 SU, 0-5 ATS in their first five conference road games, struggling in unfamiliar venues after rolling through the depleted WAC in recent years.

And the Aggies have gotten worse in recent road tilts, losing their last two contests by a combined 37 points at UNLV and Wyoming. Yes, Utah State snapped their five game skid with a 2-0 home stand, but their wins (Nevada and Boise) both came against slumping foes.

Colorado State certainly isn’t slumping right now – they’re coming into tonight’s game off two of their best efforts of the year, blowing out UNLV on this floor and beating Air Force by double digits in Colorado Springs.  The Rams have been taking care of business on their home floor – their only two losses in Ft Collins since November both came against Mountain West elites (San Diego State and New Mexico).  At 4-7 in conference play, Utah State is a long way from being an elite MWC squad.
