Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Who has what it takes to win the Big Dance Part I

03.02.2015     08:50 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
History shows us many things about what it takes to be a champion.  I write this article every year, and in every year except for two, I have been able to identify the eventual NCAA National Champion among my elite level teams.   Both exceptions were the same team – UConn – making miracle runs to win the title as prohibitive longshots.

Last year, the Huskies were on the ropes in their tourney opener against St Joe’s, needing a late rally just to send the game to overtime.  Three weeks later, they cut down the nets as national champs at Jerry’s World in Arlington.  I didn’t see it coming.  Neither did the betting markets, with UConn priced in the 100:1 longshot range prior to the tournament.  And if a longshot like that wins every coinflip game in the tourney this year, I’m not likely to get it right either.

I write this article every year before the regular season is over, before the conference tournaments, before the tourney seedings are announced and before a single March Madness game has been played. And I’ve nailed the winner of the NCAA tournament four times in the last eight Read more

College Basketball Gambling Update: Nebraska seeks better effort vs. Ohio State

02.26.2015     11:53 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Our favorite dysfunctional team is back in action tonight as Nebraska heads to Ohio State. The smoke has cleared from the much publicized locker room ban but the fact remains this squad has zero confidence offensively. We expect the "effort" will be there tonight but until the Cornhuskers find a player or two who can hit a shot outside of the lane, Tim Miles will continue to provide us with excellent blog fodder.

 

“One player said he thought he had his most fun practicing the day after the Iowa game,” Miles said. “I said, ‘Great, you should have tried that 20 hours earlier.’ And we practiced hard. It was not a fun practice, if you know what I mean.”

“I’ve seen people say, ‘Is Miles kicked out of his office?’ Well, we’re not equals. This is not a marriage. It’s like a

College Basketball Handicapping: Minnesota looks to get younger players more reps

02.26.2015     11:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After three straight losses, (16-12, 5-10 Big Ten) Minnesota appears accepting that the only way path to the Big Dance is to win the Big Ten Tournament. But in the meantime, with three games left in the regular season, the Golden Gophers will continue to give their younger players more reps.


“I think the young guys are learning, and I think they’re picking up well,” senior center Mo Walker said. ”You’ve got to give them the court experience or they’ll never learn. … They’ll get better as time goes on.”

“As we’re moving forward, these young guys have got to get reps,” he said Saturday.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Texas Longhorns at West Virginia Mountaineers

Texas +4.5 at West Virginia O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Texas


Going to step in play Texas at +4.5 (a few +5's available) as it heads to West Virginia this evening. Some bettors will undoubtedly point toward the revenge angle (UT won 77-50 in Austin) and the Longhorns' spotty play of late (back-to-back losses). But at the current price there is some value on the underdog as WVU enters off back-to-back upsets and doesn't match up particularly well against UT's front court. While Texas has plenty of weakness -- most notably a lack of consistency -- they do defend well in the paint. In their last two losses, Oklahoma and Iowa State shot a combined 28-of-77, 36.3% from two. What did them in what allowing 20 three-pointers. But unlike the Sooners and Cyclones, the Mountaineers don't have much of any outside shooting prowess. On the season, they've connected on only 30.9% of their three-point attempts. Another angle to consider is WVU's element of surprise, or lack thereof in this spot. In five "second meets" in Big XII pay, the Mountaineers have covered only once; against bottom feeder Texas Tech. Teams clearly know what to expect and while Texas Read more

College Basketball Betting: Nebraska wants to get season over with ASAP

02.23.2015     11:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things continue to head south for Nebraska as always candid head coach Tim Miles banned his team from the locker room following Sunday's 74-46 loss to Iowa. Miles had already hinted the Cornhuskers wouldn't accept a bid to a secondary postseason tournament should they even qualify. They've now lost seven of eight. NU's only win and cover during that span was when it somehow managed to pop for 76 points in blowout win over Northwestern. In their other seven games, they averaged less than 50 ppg. They close out the regular season with road games at Ohio State and Illinois and a home finale vs. Maryland.


“You never want to throw your players under the bus, but that was just beyond disappointing,” Miles said. “That’s not what we represent. I told our guys, ‘when I was at Southwest Minnesota State, to pay for shoes we used to have to go to the Renaissance Festival in Shakopee, Minnesota for a weekend and pick up trash. We were the trash guys.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Betting against the Washington Wizards

02.23.2015     11:45 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I highlighted a pair of NBA teams that had all the makings of being strong bet-on squads over the final two months of the regular season.  Those two teams – the Indiana Pacers and the Oklahoma City Thunder – combined to go 5-0 SU and 5-0 ATS in their first five games coming out of the All Star break.  I don’t think either one of those squads has even approached their peak yet, still offering tremendous bet-on potential moving forward.  In particular, OKC even without Durant in the lineup is capable of very big things, both SU and ATS.

This week I’m going to look at a single team on the other end of the spectrum – a dead nuts bet-against squad over the final two months of the campaign.  With sincere apologies to the Denver Nuggets, my #1 fade team in the NBA right now is the Washington Wizards.  While Denver is a lottery team that is being priced like a lottery team, Washington is still being priced as a strong playoff contender in the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at Oklahoma State Cowboys

West Virginia at Oklahoma State -4 O/U 134.5
Recommendation: Under


Oklahoma State has been really consistent when it comes to pace this season regardless of opponent. In their last two games, against TCU and Iowa State,  there were 124 and 126 possessions respectively. That's very important when we consider how different both those squads are on the offensive end. When the Cowboys faced Big XII squads that play up-tempo (Iowa State, Kansas, Oklahoma) five of those six games went under the total. Those totals ranged from the mid-130’s to mid-140’s. No matter what the opposition, it’s hard to reach that mark when you prefer a slow pace, fail to average over a point per possession, and grade out as above average defensively. Statistically, West Virginia is the fastest team in the Big XII because they press and their games often feature an endless amount of free throws. But this is a different team on the road as three of their last four road games failed to top 130 (127, 124, 123, and 138 against Iowa State). Very important game for both sides, particularly Oklahoma State who desperately needs a victory after back-to-back losses. Read more

NBA Handicapping: Dragic to Miami highlights trade deadline

02.20.2015     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rather that sift through a Twitter timeline, fifty different articles, or Simmons' Members Only Grantland conversation that was neither informative or funny, Deadspin made it easy and broke down all of yesterday's NBA trades. Yeah, it's snarky, but in three minutes, you'll be up to speed. The biggest trade was Phoenix's Goran Dragic getting shipped to Miami. That instantly made the Heat a contender in the Eastern Conference. But not 24 hours after it went down, the team announced Chris Both may have a blood clot in his lung and could miss the rest of the season. We'll be talking more about the trading deadline as well as all of Friday night's game on the Sportsmemo Podcast this afternoon.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: St. Joseph's Hawks at Dayton Flyers

St. Joseph's at Dayton -10 O/U 123.5
Recommendation: Dayton


Flyers head coach Archie Miller raised some eyebrows when he kicked his top two returning big men off the team before Christmas, dismissing Jalen Robinson and Devin Scott.  That came on the heels of a bum knee from a potential impact big man Detwon Rogers in preseason, that has kept him sidelined all year.  And  another potential upside big man Steve McElvene was ruled ineligible to play this season.

Miller clearly knew what he was doing.  Dayton has played with a collective fire in their bellies that’s been second to none in the A-10 since those dismissals.  They are 12-3 SU since the roster upheaval ad 8-4 ATS in their last dozen ballgames.  Two of the three losses have come by two points or less.  Nine of their twelve wins have come by double digit margins. 

Miller had a gameplan when he kicked the malcontents off the squad, running three and four guard lineups out on the floor, relying on quickness and talent, not size. The results have been remarkable: strong shooting percentages, excellent production from beyond the Read more

Fantasy sports websites are shady just like most online sportsbooks

02.17.2015     07:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You know how sportsbooks offers these seemingly great bonus offers that never end up being great because of the endless array of hoops you have to jump through before you receive said bonus. That's pretty much the business model for fantasy sports websites like FanDuel and DraftKings. And while people will bitch, complain, and maybe try to sue, thanks to the "fine print" , they'll likely never be touched.


"Our intention isn't to bring down the daily fantasy sports industry," Attorney Kerns told the Broward Palm Beach New Times. "Given how big it is, that wouldn't be possible. I think they provide a great service, I just think it should be done in process that doesn't make someone think they're getting double their deposit."
