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."











College Basketball Gambling: Seton Hall tries to weather storm

02.16.2015     07:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things have gotten -- and still may be -- messy for Seton Hall after a player quit and rumors surfaced about a troubled locker room. The Pirates were 15-6, 5-4 but have dropped four straight and play the second of three straight road games at Villanova this evening. Head coach Kevin Willard commended his team for their effort in a spread covering 69-62 loss at Providence on Saturday.


"It's tough coming on the road after having to deal with a lot of B.S. over the last week," Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard said after the loss. "We came on the road to a packed house and I thought we did a good job of battling. (I'm) really proud of this team."

West Virginia at Iowa State -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Under


They'll no doubt be a lot of pace and points in this afternoon's West Virginia-Iowa State game but oddsmakers aren't messing around by opening this game 160. It's since been bet down slightly to 158.5 but I see a few factors that make playing the under worth a bet. For starters, Iowa State talked all week about shoring up its leaky defense. That doesn't mean they're going to start holding teams in the 60's as their games are way too fast for that. But at home off of allowing 94 points to Oklahoma, I expect a much better effort. Next, West Virginia doesn't have a very efficient offense. In fact, the Mountaineers are averaging less than a point per possession in Big XII play. And it's important to note that not one WVU Big XII game has topped 158 in regulation. In the first meeting between these two squads there was a fair amount of pace (144 possession) and points 146 but it went under the closing total of 150. Neither team has changed much of all since that game back in mid-January and yet today's total is eight points higher. In order for this game to go over the total you'll need close Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Michigan Wolverines at Illinois Fighting Illini

Michigan at Illinois -6.5 O/U 121
Recommendation: Illinois


Michigan is an injury riddled mess right now; a team that I’m looking to bet against in hostile environments both tonight and moving forward.  The Wolverines are coming off another tight, deflating loss at Indiana over the weekend, their fourth defeat in the last five games.  Two of those losses (Michigan State and Wisconsin) were overtime affairs.  And it’s not going to get any easier for John Beilein’s squad tonight as they travel to Assembly Hall in Champaign to take on the Illini.

Michigan’s injury woes are getting worse, not better.  Four of their five starters played at least 34 minutes at Indiana, and at least part of the reason why the Wolverines have been struggling so much in close games is because they are short-handed, running out of gas in the latter stages of tight contests.  Let’s not forget that this team lost FIVE underclassmen to the NBA over the last three drafts.  Last month, star guard and leading scorer Caris LeVert was lost to a season ending foot injury.  Since then, they’ve lost third Read more

Xavier -3 at Marquette O/U 137
Recommendation: Under 


Xavier has been one of the tougher teams in the country to handicap from a totals perspective. The pace of their games is typically fairly quick but their offense and defense comes and goes on a weekly basis. Tonight, they head to Marquette for a critical game as the Musketeers sit 15-9 and 6-6 in Big East play. The Golden Eagles meanwhile continue to fight despite being short on depth and talent. They've lost five Big East games that came down to the final two minutes of play. Veteran guard Matt Carlino missed Marquette's last game and while they managed to win at Seton Hall, the team shot 1-of-10 from three and netted only 57 points. Carlino (concussion) is questionable tonight and if he is ruled out, expect the market to knock this total down a point or two. But even if he does suit up, Marquette is far more comfortable grinding out games and trying to keep things close. They simply can't match Xavier from an offensive perspective if this game is played in transition. I think the first meeting is very indicative of what we'll see tonight: 124 possessions and 120 points -- and that was Read more
