College Basketball Betting Free Play: Samford Bulldogs at The Citadel Bulldogs

Samford -4.5 at The Citadel
Recommendation: Samford


The Citadel has been ridiculously bad this season and is currently in the midst of a 10-game span where they have not come within five points of their opponents. Overall, the average loss during this stretch has been 14.8 ppg with eight being by nine or more. While Citadel is locked into the #11 spot in the upcoming Southern Conference Tournament, Samford has an opportunity to gain the #6 spot with a strong close to the regular season. Samford owns the tiebreaker against NC-Greensboro by virtue of their 88-78 win back on Jan 23. The #6 seed becomes important because it faces the league’s worst team (#11 seed) in the first round which will be this Citadel team.

The likely #10 seed is Furman which Samford struggled with twice this year so earning the #6 figures to make a difference for them. The nine days off for Samford heading into this contest could benefit them as well in the form of fresh legs at a time of year (just 3-4 games left) where teams are somewhat fatigued. Fundamentally, each of these teams is smallish and has defensive troubles but the gaping difference between them is Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 2-21-2014

Wyoming got terrible news on Wednesday when it learned that its star Larry Nance Jr. would miss the rest of the season due to a torn ACL. Nance was leading the Cowboys in scoring (15.4 points per game), rebounding (8.6 RPG), blocked shots (2.1 BPG) and steals (1.4 SPG). Larry Shyatt's team is in the bubble picture with a 17-9 overall record, but it will be a daunting task to get to the NCAA Tournament without Nance. The Cowboys, who are 14-7-2 against the spread, play Saturday at Colorado St.

Florida reserve point guard Kasey Hill missed Wednesday's non-covering home win over Auburn with a groin injury sustained in last Saturday's victory at Kentucky. Billy Donovan told the media Friday that "unless he has a miraculous recovery, he's out" Saturday at Ole Miss. Hill averages 5.6 points per game and has a 65/33 assists-to-turnovers ratio. Seniors Patric Young and Casey Prather are both playing through sore knees. Donovan said that Young wasn't going to play against Auburn until convincing the coaching staff he could go late that afternoon. It's a good thing he did because without Young scoring all 17 of his points in the second half, including a pair of go-ahead Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: San Antonio Spurs at Phoenix Suns

San Antonio -1.5 at Phoenix O/U 208.5
Recommendation: San Antonio


My clients and I have already cashed four winning bets supporting San Antonio on their annual ‘Rodeo Road Trip’. And we’ve got another prime opportunity to make money riding the Spurs as they close out their extended trip tonight in Phoenix.

The Spurs go through this February stretch every season, and just about every season, they make money for their supporters.  They went 7-2 SU on this trip last year, 8-1 SU on this trip in 2012 and 6-3 SU on the trip in 2011.  I could go back further, but you get the point.  It’s surely worth noting that the Spurs have closed out their successful trips with a victory in their last Rodeo Road Trip game in each of the last three years.

“Spurs head coach Greg Popovich gets the point too.  “This is a time when we always try to make hay. Historically, that ‘Rodeo Road Trip’; that time before, Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Minnesota's defense on the upswing

Illinois at Minnesota -7.5 O/U 129.5

Article on Minnesota's recent defensive improvements. Seasonally, the Gophers rank 10th in the Big Ten in points per possession allowed (1.06) but last time out they held Northwestern to 0.81 and also puts the clamps on Indiana (0.94). They'll still have issues with the better offenses in the Big Ten but against Illinois and Ohio State (Sat.), Minny is primed for more strong outputs.


“We’ve played much better defense,” Gophers coach Richard Pitino said. “The numbers may not indicate it as much, but … [on Sunday] that was the most fundamentally sound we’ve been all year.”

“Guys are coming together and realizing that if we want to win games, we’re going to have to defend,” he said.

Boston at Phoenix -7 O/U 203

Another noteworthy historical betting trend in play for tonight's Boston-Phoenix game. The Suns beat the Nuggets in overtime last night, 112-107. Teams that are favored off an overtime win and playing on no rest are 32-35 SU and only 22-44-1 ATS. The average line of that profile was -5.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Villanova Wildcats at Creighton Bluejays

Villanova at Creighton -2.5 O/U 147
Recommendation: Creighton


Creighton has failed to cover the number in four consecutive games because it has been overpriced. However, in today's home game vs. Villanova, the price is right for a play on the Bluejays, who are 2.5-point home favorites vs. the Wildcats. Greg McDermott's team is undefeated in 13 home games this season with a 7-4 spread record. Creighton has been a single-digit home 'chalk' three times, posting a 2-1 ATS mark. When these teams met in Philadelphia on Jan. 20, it was all Creighton from the jump. The Bluejays put on a show, setting school and Big East records by draining 21-of-35 attempts from 3-point range. They led by 40 – that's right, 40! – with more than six minutes remaining. Ethan Wragge scored a career-high 27 points thanks to nine treys on 14 attempts. With eight 3-balls in the first 16 minutes and change, Wragge surpassed his previous career high of 22 points before halftime. Doug McDermott was steady as usual, producing 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting from the field. Austin Chatman dished out 10 assists, while Jahenns Manigat finished with 19 points. Now obviously, I'm Read more

Michigan State senior center Adreian Payne is back and he's 100 percent healthy (and lethal) after missing seven games. Payne led the Spartans to Thursday's 85-70 home win over Northwestern by scoring 20 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. Payne scored 24 points in last Sunday's loss at Wisconsin. Tom Izzo is happy to have Payne back, but he's now without starting guard Keith Appling, who has a wrist injury that has forced him to miss the first three games of his career. Appling averages 15.0 points and 4.9 assists per game. He continues to get treatment but is probably at least a week away from returning. Branden Dawson remains out (hand) and won't be back for at least two more weeks.

Kansas freshman center Joel Embiid is listed as 'questionable' for Saturday's home game vs. TCU, but I'll be very surprised if he plays. Bill Self clearly indicated after Monday's loss at Kansas St. that Embiid needed some rest before the stretch drive. Embiid has been bothered by a sprained knee and an ailing back, and his presence certainly isn't required against the Horned Frogs. Embiid averages 10.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game. Also, the status of Jamari Taylor is Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Arizona State tries to break through vs. rival Arizona

Arizona -5.5 at Arizona State

Tonight in Tempe Arizona State will look to avenge an early season 91-68 blowout loss to rival Arizona. Both teams will have a slightly different look this time around with ASU's Jermaine Marshall back in the lineup and UA's Brandon Ashley out with an injury. The Wildcats have won 6 of the last 7 in the series (5-2 ATS).


“Any time you’re missing a key player, it’s hard to judge that team,” UA coach Sean Miller said of Marshall, who’s been at full strength for a couple of weeks. “When he’s come back and become healthy, to me, they’ve almost regained the form they had prior to our game when they were playing excellent basketball.”

“We’ve played them now three times since I’ve been here and I haven’t won one, so it’s about time I get one,” ASU sophomore point guard Jahii Carson said.

College Basketball Handicapping: UCF's looking to play younger players

Central Florida at Memphis -13.5 O/U 145.5

Losers of eight straight (1-7 ATS), UCF head coach Donnie Jones hinted of a youth movement – at least for the rest of the regular season. In last Sunday's 75-55 loss at UConn, UCF's starters played 31, 20, 18, 18 and 14 minutes.


“You focus on positive,” Jones said after his team’s most recent 75-55 loss to Connecticut. “That’s all you can focus on right now with some of these young guys. We were committed to starting those older guys and getting those young guys a chance. So, you look at the bench and I think we scored 34 points off the bench and that was with our young guys.”

NBA Betting News: Phoenix Suns continue to play faster

Article on the Phoenix Suns picking up the tempo over the course of the first half of the season. They've managed to increase the pacing of their games in every month. Trend-wise, Phoenix is 28-21-1 O/U on the season, 11-5 O/U its last 16 games, and 3-0 O/U its last three. Tonight's total against Miami is currently 208.5.


“I think we’re running more,” Dragic said. “Even when they score, we get the ball quick out of bounds and we just push the ball. We put a lot more pressure on their defense….usually, let’s say third or fourth quarter, they get really tired. That’s our biggest advantage.”

“We get out of the basket quicker,” Hornacek said. “Defense, obviously. If you’re getting stops you can run more. I think some of these games that we’re really running, we’re even running on made baskets. Some games we don’t’ take it out quick enough.”
