NCAA Tournament Betting: Kentucky in great form but Louisville remains moderate favorite

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Kentucky vs. Louisville -5 O/U 138.5

Current form or entire body of work? That is the conundrum with Friday's Kentucky-Louisville game. The Wildcats have looked Final Four-esque (4-1 SU, 5-0 ATS) since losing to Florida in the regular season finale. The Cardinals meanwhile received scares in their first two tourney games from Manhattan and Saint Louis – trailing in the second half of both only to pull away late. Prior to the NCAA Tournament, 14 of Louisville's last 15 wins came by double-digits. UK won the regular season meeting in Lexington, 73-66 as 1.5-point favorites. For Friday, Louisville has held steady as a 5-point favorite; something oddsmakers don't feel will change much prior to tip-off.


“The line is based on rating of both teams,” he said. “Kentucky played great Sunday. From what I’ve seen, it was one of their best-played games all year… So yes, the line probably came down a little bit from what I thought it would be originally. But you

College Basketball Betting Free Play: St. Mary's Gaels at Minnesota Golden Gophers

St. Mary's at Minnesota -6
Recommendation: Minnesota


Minnesota was in the hunt for an NCAA Tournament at-large bid coming down the stretch of the regular season, but it just couldn't break through with a quality road win. In fact, the Gophers lost seven of their last eight games on the road. But that doesn't matter in regards to Sunday's showdown with Saint Mary's in the NIT's version of the Sweet 16. You see, Richard Pitino's team is at home for this game and it is a completely different squad at The Barn. When Minnesota wins at home, something it did in 16 of 19 games this season, it doesn't mess around. In fact, the Gophers have won 15 of their 16 home games by margins of six points or more. That's a convenient stat because most books had Pitino's troops installed as six-point home. We should also note that Minnesota won by double digits in 12 of its 15 home victories. And it's not as if Minnesota was going up against a bunch of scrub squads. The Gophers beat Ohio State by a 63-53 count and thumped Wisconsin, 81-68. Another team in the NCAA Tournament (Iowa) field got bested 95-89 in Minneapolis, while one school left in the NIT field (Florida Read more

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

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
