NCAA Tournament Gambling News: Iowa State Cyclones lose Niang

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Iowa State's Georges Niang (16.2 ppg) broke his foot during last night's win over NC Central and will miss the rest of the season. His departure leaves the Cyclones with only six contributing players. ISU opened -1 for Sunday's matchup against North Carolina. They've since been bet up to -1.5 with a total of 158.5.

NCAA Tournament Handicapping: UL-Lafayette gets much needed rest

UL-Lafayette vs. Creighton -13.5 O/U 154.5

UL-Lafayette caught a little bit of a break by drawing a Friday first round matchup. The Ragin Cajuns won three games – all barn burners – en route to the Sun Belt title. In fact ULL's last five games were decided by 3, 1, 6, 1, and 1 (OT).


“We played three days in a row, and it took everything out of us. But we’re gonna get that rest, and we’ll be ready to go Friday.”

“I’m glad we’re gonna play on Friday,” he said. “That extra day of rest will be important, for sure.”

NCAA Tournament Betting: Gonzaga comfortable in role of underdog

Oklahoma State -3 vs. Gonzaga O/U 139

Unlike years past, Gonzaga seems to be flying somewhat under the radar this postseason as a small underdog to Oklahoma State for Friday's first round matchup. The Cowboys were -2 from much of the week but earlier today were bet up to -3.


“It feels like we’re kind of flying under the radar,” Pangos said over the phone from the Spokane, Wash., campus as his team continued preparations for a first-round matchup with the No. 9 Oklahoma State Cowboys (21-12) on Friday in San Diego.

“We’ve known we were going to get in (the tournament) for a week, but nobody’s really talking about us. Last year, we were the talk of the tournament. It was, ‘Is Gonzaga overrated, blah, blah, blah.’ ”

NCAA Tournament Handicapping: Mercer focused on defensive variety vs. Duke

Mercer vs. Duke -12.5 O/U 140.5

Mercer's focus heading into Friday's first round matchup vs. Duke seems to be centered around defense – in particular shutting down Jabari Parker. Mercer allowed an Atlantic Sun-best 0.94 points per possession in league play. In step-up games against Texas, Seton Hall, Oklahoma, and Ole Miss, the Bears allowed 1.04, 0.89, 1.34, and 1.08 respectively.


“We’ve got a lot of different schemes we’re going to throw at him, a lot of different defenses that we’re going to throw at Duke in general, because he’s obviously one of their best players,” Gollon said. “They’ve got a bunch of guys that are really good.

“We’ve got some different stuff we’re going to throw at them, but more than anything, we’ve just got to lock down and play good team defense. We’ve always been a good defensive team.”

NBA Handicapping: Lack of defense hurting Phoenix's playoff chances

Orlando at Phoenix -11.5 O/U 209.5

Good article on Phoenix's defensive struggles of late. Over their last 13 games (5-8 SU, 7-6 ATS, 6-5-2 O/U) the Suns have allowed nearly 50% from the floor. Phoenix is now 1.5 games behind current eighth seed Memphis. They play five of their next six games against the Eastern Conference.


"Teams must be pretty happy about coming to play us," Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. "We've just got to find the mix of guys who will go out there and battle and not be afraid of fouls and just play and not worry about the offense, but worry about the defense, and the offense comes."

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Albany concerned over lack of prep time

Mountain St. Mary's vs. Albany -2.5 O/U 140

Two non-boarded teams kick off tonight's NCAA Tournament play-in game action with 16 seeds Mount St. Mary's taking on Albany. In terms of rest and prep time, MSM has the advantage having wrapped up the Northeastern Conference Tournament last Tuesday. Albany meanwhile beat Stony Brook in the American East championship game on Saturday.


"My main concern is that we just finished a tough game and have to play on Tuesday and (Mount St. Mary's) have had a week off," Brown said. "I need the prep time. We don't know that much about them so the prep is the biggest thing. These kids deserve to be prepared. I do know that they press and trap for 40 minutes and play up-tempo basketball."

NCAA Tournament Gambling: Selection committee causes uproar in betting community

03.17.2014     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
No shock to see various oddsmakers question what the hell the NCAA selection committee was thinking when put together this year's shindig.


“That’s probably the hardest bracket I’ve ever seen in my whole life,” said Ed Salmons, assistant sports book director at the LVH Superbook who oversees college basketball. “It was a comedy show to watch all the teams they stacked that Wichita State would have to beat to get to the Final Four. It was over-the-top insane.”

“I just let people bet them all year, and they just kept doing it,” Salmons said of the Shockers. “It adds up. I finally lowered them to 10-to-1 but when I saw this region come out, I had to up them. Their true odds of winning this thing would have to be close to 100-to-1.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: An early look at the Field of 68

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’ve got brackets to break down! I’ll offer a quick take on the 28 matchups already set for Thursday and Friday. Games are listed in rotation order.

The A-10 got a handful of mediocre teams like Dayton into the NCAA Tournament mix, but the Flyers will certainly be looking forward to a matchup against an Ohio State team that has repeatedly avoided them in non-conference play. The Buckeyes enter the tourney on an 0-6 ATS run; just 4-11 ATS in their last 15 tries as chalk.

Syracuse, too, was a pointspread disaster area down the stretch, cashing only one winning bet in their last eight ballgames. But Western Michigan’s only win against an NCAA Tournament team came on the opening night of the season, back on November 8th, when they beat New Mexico State.

Phil Martelli’s Saint Joseph’s team hasn’t won an NCAA Tournament game since 2004, when Jameer Nelson and Delonte West were his starting guards. UConn is a Top 10 team for free throw shooting percentage; always key in this ‘short favorite’ pointspread Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the Midwest Region

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
