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

03.11.2014     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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.

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Betting Conference Tournaments

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Big Dance gets all the headlines; all the media attention.  And it makes sense why that happens.  College basketball is way too big for the average fan.  More than 350 teams in more than 30 conferences are simply too much for non-hardcore hoops aficionados to handle.
And then there’s the bracket factor.  The entire country fills out brackets.  They’re easy to fill out, the seedings make sense to Joe Public, and after the first round, most of the obscure teams are gone.  Those obscure teams that survive are now public darlings, Cinderella stories that casual fans can understand and follow.

Forget fans – I’m no casual fan, and if you’re reading this, you probably aren’t either.  We’re sports bettors.  And for serious college basketball bettors, there’s absolutely no comparison between this week and next week.  This week, we’ve got dozens of Little Dances, the conference tournaments that are a sports bettors dream.  Next week, for the Big Dance, it’s still a betting bonanza, but not quite as good.  Here are my Top 6 reasons why.

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Penn State Nittany Lions at Minnesota Golden Gophers

Penn State +7 at Minnesota O/U 136.5
Recommendation: Penn State


Is Minnesota downright desperate for a victory today against Penn State? You damn right it is. Does desperation translate into success? Negative. Minnesota is going in the wrong direction. Richard Pitino's team has lost seven of its last 10 games, making a victory at The Barn tonight vs. PSU an absolute must. Not only that, but then the Gophers are going to most likely need a pair of wins at next week's Big Ten Tournament in order to feel good about their chances of earning an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Penn State is playing solid basketball right now, covering the number in each of its last three games. The Nittany Lions have won outright in three of their last five road assignments, including a 59-32 win at Northwestern on Thursday night. PSU probably has the most underrated backcourt in the country. Coming off a torn ACL last season, senior point guard Tim Frazier has enjoyed another stellar campaign to cap off what has been an outstanding collegiate career. Frazier has scored in double figures in nine consecutive games. The fifth-year senior is averaging 15.6 Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Northwestern Wildcats at Purdue Boilermakers

Northwestern at Purdue -9 O/U 123
Recommendation: Purdue


Purdue has played a brutal slate down the stretch facing what could very well be five NCAA Tournament bound squads – three of those five contests on the road. The Boilers haven't quit either, losing to Michigan in overtime, Iowa by single digits in Iowa City, and by six up in Madison on Wednesday. No question Matt Painter and the team are frustrated but today marks a great opportunity to feel good for a change. Not much of any motivation for the Northwestern side as it limps into this contest short on bodies and scoring ability. We saw the fatigue of the season and the loss of JerShon Cobb really play out in Thursday's embarrassing 59-32 loss to Penn State. Today is a situation that if the Wildcats get down there is simply no reason to put up much of a fight with the Big Ten Tournament just around the corner. Also note that in the first meeting between these teams, Purdue had the game won not once, but twice, but managed to lose in double OT. It's been that kind of season for the Boilermakers but I feel that they are sitting on a solid showing today. As with all Northwestern games, the Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Injury Report 3-7-2014

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Syracuse has lost four of its last five games and don’t forget, it nearly lost the two games preceding this five-game slump. The Orange needed miracle plays in the waning seconds to win at Pitt (on Tyler Ennis's buzzer beater) and at home vs. NC State. Jim Boeheim's team travels to Tallahassee on Sunday to face a Florida State team that's on  the bubble and in dire need of a victory. Will starting power forward Jerami Grant be able to go against the Seminoles? As of late Friday afternoon, Grant remained 'questionable' due to a back injury. He was unable to play in this week's home loss to Georgia Tech. Grant averages 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Kansas will play without freshman center Joel Embiid for a second straight game Saturday at West Virginia. Embiid is resting back and knee injuries in hopes of getting back to 100 percent before next week's Big 12 Tournament. Embiid averages 11.2 points, 8.1 rebounds and 2.6 blocked shots per game. The Jayhawks covered the spread without their shot blocker in Wednesday's blowout win over Texas Tech.

Texas center Jonathan Holmes (13.2 PPG) rested a sore knee during Wednesday's 66-54 non-covering win Read more

Drunk gambler attempting to sue casino over losses

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Dude walks into a Las Vegas casino. Dude gets hammered on comped drinks. Dude proceeds to lose $500K. Dude sues casino.


"It's certainly an extraordinary case. This is not a story that I've ever heard before, where someone was blackout intoxicated where they couldn't read their cards, and yet a casino continued to serve them drinks and issue them more markers," Lyttle said. "It's a very heavy-handed and unusual approach that we haven't seen in this town in a long time."

College Basketball Betting: Sportsbooks score big on Georgia State "upset"

03.05.2014     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you follow the college basketball betting markets you may have noticed Arkansas State taking a lot of money last night. Georgia State had already clinched the Sun Belt's no. 1 seed and head coach Ron Hunter hinted that he may rest some of his starters the final two games of the regular season. Adding to the potential "no-show" for the Panthers was the difficulty they had getting to the ASU’s arena due to inclement weather. The game started nearly an hour late and before GSU could even blink, Arkansas State jumped out to a 7-0 lead and the Panthers were forced to call a timeout. But Hunter didn't rest all of his starters – he sat only leading scorer RJ Hunter. The rest of the regular rotation saw extended minutes. Arkansas State led by three at half and by as much as 8 in the second half but GSU wouldn't go away and eventually Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Play: Tampa Bay Lightning at St. Louis Blues

Tampa Bay at St. Louis -180 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Under


Much has been made of the blockbuster trade that sent Buffalo Sabres goalie Ryan Miller to the Stanley Cup contending St. Louis Blues and rightfully so.  Miller is the type of goalie that can carry a team on his back deep into the playoffs.  Put him on a defensive minded team that is third in the league in GAA at 2.27 and the Blues are the favorites in the Western Conference at this point.  Miller took one game to settle into his role with the new club as the Blues came back to beat the Phoenix Coyotes 4-2 on Sunday night.  I fully expect Miller to get the start on Tuesday night and for him to get the bulk of the starts as the new #1 moving forward.  This is not just a play on the Blues feeling more comfortable with Miller in net or Miller winning this game on his own; Tampa Bay has been involved in many low scoring games away from home this season (5.06 goals per game). The Lightning will be playing their third road game in four nights and I look for them to try and keep it very simple against the more talented and deep Bluee. Teams seem to be settling down Read more

NBA Handicapping: Clippers seeks payback vs. Suns

LA Clippers -3.5 at Phoenix O/U 218.5

It was over two months ago but the Los Angeles Clippers vividly remember the 19-point beat down they took on their home floor against the Phoenix Suns. Note that Clippers are rested and ready having not played since last Saturday.


"I mean, they just only came to our place and beat our butts," Rivers said. "Other than that, you just got to go play. I'm sure our guys remember that. But so does Phoenix. They feel good about it. So it'll be a tough game, especially without a couple of our scorers, because they score. They create an offensive problem."
