College Basketball Gambling: Nebraska desperate to find offense

02.10.2015     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Listening to Nebraska head coach Tim Miles talk about his team's offensive woes is pretty entertaining. The Cornhuskers have failed to top 45 points in thee of their last four games but yet inexplicably popped for 76 and 79 against Northwestern and Michigan State. They'll likely need north of 60 tonight as they play host to the nation's most efficient offense. Wisconsin is averaging an unreal 1.27 points per possession in Big Ten play. To put that number in perspective, that's 76 points on 60 possessions. Wisconsin however doesn't have the strongest of defenses. They currently rank 10th in the Big Ten in defensive efficiency (1.04 ppp allowed).  
 

 “We’re not even running to our stuff and getting to our spots and making hard cuts and running sharply in screens. Now we’ve lost that, and you’ve really lost a chance to be a good offensive team,” Miles said. 
 
 “You have to run with pace. You have to have an

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Sports betting becoming part of mainstream

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Something remarkable is happening in the world of sports betting right now; a strong push towards nationwide acceptance and legalization of our favorite pastime.  I moved to Las Vegas in 1998 and I’ve never seen anywhere close to the level of positive momentum that sports betting is enjoying here in February, 2015.  What has changed and why is it changing when it comes to broader attitudes about sports betting?  Read on to find out.

Over the course of the last few months, there has literally been a paradigm shift is how sports betting is viewed nationally.  I did a TV interview for PBS Newshour before the Super Bowl; an interview that was excerpted in a nine minute piece on the national nightly news about sports betting here in Vegas and across the country from a fairly conservative news organization.  If that’s not an indicator that sports betting has moved to the mainstream, I don’t know what is!

New NBA Commissioner Adam Sliver spent many of his formative years as a league administrator overseas as the league’s deputy commissioner.  His quote from David Purdum’s excellent article in ESPN The Magazine Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Kansas State's up-and-down season continues

02.05.2015     01:08 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Man, Kansas State is a mess. After starting the season 7-7, the Wildcats reeled off five wins in six games to reposition themselves as a potential NCAA Tournament squad. Less than two weeks later, K-State is off three straight losses and arguably their best player, Marcus Foster, has been suspended. Foster has been in and out of Bruce Weber's doghouse for much of the season and while he's been an obvious distraction to the team, the Wildcats don't bring much to the table without him. Last night, without Foster, the Wildcats managed only 47 points in a 17-point loss to bottom feeder Texas Tech. Something has to give on Saturday as KSU plays host to an equally toxic Texas squad that has dropped four straight.


“Our whole team, we have been plagued from the start of the season by immaturity, by a lack of discipline and a lack of consistency,” Weber told reporters after the game. “That has been on and off the court, all year. I gave them a sheet of paper at the beginning of

College Basketball Handicapping: Ohio State and Purdue sticking to man-to-man defense

02.04.2015     08:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
While zone defense has become all of the rage in college basketball, both Ohio State and Purdue have ditched it in favor of playing good old fashion man-to-man. The results have paid dividends, particularly for the Boilermakers who rank No. 1 in the Big Ten in effective field goal defense (43.9%). The total for tonight's game was bet down from 143 to 139.


"I liked our zone early, but right now I'm liking what we're doing defensively in terms of getting our guys understanding what we're attempting to take away," Matta said. "Our ball screen defense is getting better in terms of rotations, and the bigs are getting better at being active."

"When you go play man-to-man, it teaches you to position a little better. Be in help, but you also have to know where your man is."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Illinois Fighting Illini

Rutgers at Illinois -11.5 O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Under


Illinois has managed to survive without the services or Rayvonte Rice (7 games) and Aaron Cosby (3 games), both of whom are suspended for tonight's game. As a result, they've slowed down the tempo some and upped their game on the defensive end of the floor. They've held Maryland, Nebraska, Purdue, and Penn State to less than a point per possession and should continue that trend tonight as Rutgers sports arguably the worst offense in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights have netted 50, 51, 51, and 64 points their last four games. The 64-point effort came against Indiana which hasn't played much if any defense this season. Adding to Knights' struggles is the fact that they are playing their third game in six nights and using essentially a five-and-a-half-man rotation. Against the Hoosiers, Rutgers' starting five all played 34 minutes or more. Back on the road, their only option is to slow down the pace of the game and hope to knock down just enough shots to stay within striking distance. Current pointspread suggests we could avoid late fouls which puts us on the under.

College Basketball Handicapping: Ilinois and Rutgers both dealing with issues

02.03.2015     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Couple things to consider before betting tonight's Rutgers-Illinois game. For starters, the Illini will continue to be without the services of Aaron Cosy and Rayvonte Rice who while cleared to play injury-wise remain suspended due to unspecified reasons.


"They're indefinitely suspended and that’s where it’s at," Groce said Monday at a news conference. "That’s between me and them."



Next, we have Rutgers playing its third game in six days. The most recent, a hard fought loss to Indiana on Saturday, saw five Scarlet Knight players log 34 minutes or more.


“Losing six in a row, you have to keep your kids upbeat,” Jordan said. “Keep them in a positive mood, keep their confidence soaring through the roof. You can’t let them get down on each other or themselves.”

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Looking for NBA teams to bet on

The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror, and MLB season is still two months away.  That means we’re In the heart of basketball season right now.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report I’ll take a look at a handful of NBA teams that offer legitimate bet-on potential as we approach the All-Star break.

The Cleveland Cavaliers spent the first half of the campaign disappointing their backers every bit as much as their fans.  In fact, the Cavs ranked among the very worst NBA teams against the spread, with a dismal 13-26 ATS mark in their first 39 games.  LeBron James was ailing, Kevin Love looked lost, key low post presence Anderson Varejao went out for the season with an Achilles tear and first year head coach David Blatt was under constant scrutiny, on the hotseat less than half the way through his first campaign.

The return to health of LeBron and a couple of trades have turned things around completely in Cleveland.  The Cavs have gone 10-0 SU, 9-0-1 ATS in their last ten ballgames; orchestrating a complete turnaround on the defensive end of the floor with former Nuggets center Timofey Mozgov anchoring the low Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Contrasting styles highlight Indiana vs. Purdue

Very intriguing handicap with Indiana's up-tempo, small ball attack headed to West Lafayette to take on recently defensive-minded Purdue. The Hoosiers are essentially play five perimeter players while the Boilermakers have the ability to put two 7-footers on the floor. Purdue has seen some play in the betting markets; up to as high as -4 after opening -2.5.


"This is probably the biggest extreme we will have, and the biggest extreme they will have in Big Ten play," Purdue's Painter said. "I think we'll both have to adjust."

"They don't have a lot of size, but with that being said, they're very quick to the ball," Painter said. "A lot of times that's more important than size — being quick to the basketball at both ends and being able to break you down. Their ability to break you down off the dribble just causes so many problems.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Bettors ready for Super Bowl XLIX

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It’s Super Bowl time again.  I use this line every year because it’s true – this IS the moral equivalent of Christmas Day for many sports bettors.  Yet, much like last year, many of the professional full time bettors that I know are rather disappointed with the proposition betting opportunities for Super Bowl XLIX – there’s simply not much low hanging fruit.  The biggest and best sportsbooks (market leaders both here in Vegas and offshore) have learned from previous mistakes.  Weak numbers do NOT abound in 2015.

Let me start with the game itself.  The Super Bowl itself has been an underdog bettor’s paradise in recent years.   The Seahawks were underdogs at kickoff last year in their blowout win over the Broncos. The Ravens won the Super Bowl in 2013, as the underdog, beating the favored 49ers.  The Giants won the year before as an underdog; knocking off the Patriots.  In 2010, the Saints won straight up as a dog over Peyton Manning and the Colts.  In 2009, the Cardinals covered the spread in a tight loss to the Steelers.  In 2008, the Gia nts beat the favored 18-0 Patriots Read more
