NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the Midwest Region

03.17.2014     07:59 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NCAA Tournament field is set and like most bettors, Sunday night is spent skimming through the first round matchups and forming initial thoughts and opinions. Keep in mind that a lot can change leading up to the start of the tournament – most notably where oddsmakers set the lines and where the betting markets drives said lines. For Monday's blog, I'll share my initial thoughts and opinions with our readers on all four regions.

Midwest
The Midwest features three of the four play-in winners with Cal Poly/Texas Southern taking on no. 1 seed Wichita State, Xavier-NC State vs. Saint Louis, and Iowa-Tennessee vs. UMass... I think it helps Kansas State that it got bounced in the first round of the Big XII Tournament whereas Kentucky played three games in three days and expended a ton of energy in the 61-60 SEC title game loss vs. Florida... No clue on who will emerge out of the three-team pod of SLU/NC State/Xavier. The Billikens seem a bit overrated and have trouble scoring at times, NC State is ultra-young, and Xavier is as flighty as they come... Of course the selection committee was going to pit a former Louisville assistant up against the Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the West Region

West
As much as I love the Big Sky I can't even recall the last time they were competitive in the Big Dance. Weber State hasn't faced a defense even remotely close to that of Arizona. The closest was UCLA who trucked Weber, 83-60, in Los Angeles... I just got done looking at Gonzaga's resume and man, they didn't beat anyone. They lost to tournament teams Dayton, Kansas State, and Memphis and went 2-1 vs. a so-so BYU squad. That said, Mark Few vs. Travis Ford is a mismatch. I seem to remember Dana Altman and Oregon running OSU off the court in last year's tourney... Tough matchup for Oklahoma's young squad having to take on very experienced and talented North Dakota State. The Sooners losing in the first round of the Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats vs. Michigan State Spartans

Northwestern vs. Michigan State
Recommendation: 1st half under


Northwestern shocked the Big Ten world last night with its upset of Iowa, 67-62.  Unfortunately the task only gets tougher tonight with Michigan State rested and ready off of a first round bye.  The undermanned Wildcats will do their best to play a modern day version of “four corners” – head coach Chris Collins well aware that shortening the game gives his squad the best chance to compete.  Last night’s Iowa game was epically slow during the first half with a pace under 50.  Both teams however got to 61 at half thanks to a couple of last second three-pointers. And the Wildcats also made shots at an abnormally high rate hitting 23-of-44. Despite all of that, the game still went under the total and would have landed well below 120 if not for fouls and free throws the last minute.  With the possibility of tonight’s getting out of hand in the second half and Northwestern having to play catch-up, the best bet will be on the first half UNDER the total.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Air Force Falcons vs. Fresno State Bulldogs

03.12.2014     09:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Air Force vs. Fresno State -6.5 O/U 136
Recommendation: Under


College basketball totals are set based on aggregate statistics, factoring in a team’s entire schedule.  But these totals don’t factor in head-to-head meetings with as much influence as they should.  That’s clearly the case for tonight’s Mountain West Conference battle between Air Force and Fresno State.

There have been four previous matchups between Fresno head coach Rodney Terry and Air Force head coach Dave Pilipovich.  Those four games have finished with an average of 116 combined points, all four staying well Under the total by a combined 67 points.  And even those aggregate numbers are somewhat misleading, because these two teams combined for 18 ‘scramble points’ in the final minute and a half of Fresno’s six point home win over the Falcons back in January; a game that played at a much slower pace than the final score would indicate.

Both teams play a fair bit of zone defense, and neither squad gets easy shots from the low post on any sort of consistent basis – this game has ‘jump shot after Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Michigan State claims there will be effort towards Big Ten Tournament

03.12.2014     06:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Notorious for not putting forth much effort in the Big Ten Tournament, Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo says this year will be different. Since the event started in 2008, the Spartans are a rather modest 19-13 straight up. And since winning back-to-back titles in 1999 and 2000, the Spartans have made only one finals appearance (2012 champs). They play the winner of Iowa-Northwestern on Friday.


“The tournament is gonna be big for us. Most years it’s not,” Izzo said. “I think it’s big that we get to play some games. This team needs to keep practicing and playing together. … We’re not trying to reinvent the wheel, we’re just trying to bring back some of the magic we had early in the year when we had everybody playing together.”

Summit League Championship Betting Preview: IPFW Mastodons vs. North Dakota State Bison

Summit League Championship
IPFW vs. North Dakota State
6 pm PT, Sioux Falls, ND
CRIS Opener:
North Dakota State -8 O/U 142.5
CRIS Current: North Dakota State -8 O/U 142
Rob Veno Power Rating: North Dakota State -7.5

Quick Take: Fort Wayne was the no. 2 seed but needed two wins to reach the championship. They had a day off in between games and didn't put forth much effort in their 85-47 first round victory over IUPUI. NDSU was the top seed and has played only one game since March 1. They cruised past Denver, 83-48, in the semifinals. Despite ranking seventh in the league in defensive efficiency (1.08 points per possession allowed), IPFW has held four of its last five foes to under 1.00 ppp. The Bison ranked no. 1 in both offensive (1.15) and defensive (0.99) efficiency. The two teams split during the regular season with the home side prevailing in both contests.
