NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Initial thoughts on the West Region

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.

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 Handicapping: Wisconsin eager to put defensive clamps on Minnesota

Minnesota at Wisconsin 8.5 O/U 134

Wisconsin is looking for a little bit of defensive revenge tonight after allowing 81 (1.39 ppp) to Minnesota in Minneapolis. UW's defense has tightened up considerably of late, holding its last five opponents to 58, 65, 59, 63, and 58. The pace of most of those games was slow but it's a far cry from when the Badgers surrendered 70 or more in five straight back in January. The betting markets appear aware of this mini-transformation. Ken Pom has tonight's game totaled at 139, CRIS opened 136, and it has since been bet down to as low as 133.


"That was definitely a low point," Dekker said. "Third straight game where guys were coming off screens hitting shots, and us letting guys in the lane. Stuff that really bothers you. You go home and think about why did we let this

College Basketball Handicapping: Wisconsin and Illinois limp into tonight's contest

02.04.2014     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After starting the season 16-0, Wisconsin has dropped five of its last six. Head coach Bo Ryan isn't panicking but rather taking a it-is-what-it-is approach as the Badgers head to Illinois (0-7 SU run) tonight. The defense has played a little better of late but a year removed from leading the Big Ten in defensive efficiency (0.90 ppp allowed), Wisky currently ranks 9th at 1.04.


"You're always looking for things that can shake guys out of the positions that they're in," Ryan said. "But you can't all of a sudden re-make a team. When you can take five possessions out of several of those games and if they go the other way -- four possessions, two possessions -- you're sitting on the other side. So they still have to believe in what they're doing. They still have to believe that if they position themselves correctly, block out, take care of the ball, I can't fault them there.

"They're taking care of the ball. They're getting decent looks. A couple times we had to take a hurried look because of a

College Basketball Handicapping: DEFCON 2 alert for Ohio State?

01.23.2014     11:46 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The sky is falling in Columbus as Ohio State enters tonight's game against Illinois on a four-game losing streak. We seem to remember Louisville losing going through similar struggles last year before closing 19-1 and of course winning a National Championship. The Buckeyes don't look to be on the level though going through a mid-season swoon is pretty much unavoidable at the major conference level. Wisconsin was well on its way to a perfect season according to some and now the Badgers enter this weekend on a three-game slide.  Arizona’s regression is coming as well.


“I think honestly we need a couple to go down for us and regain a little momentum and a little confidence in our stroke,” Matta said. “It’s one of those deals that sometimes the best answer is make a couple and everything sort of takes care of itself.”

College Basketball Betting: Indiana tries to figure out Wisconsin

01.14.2014     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Indiana head coach Tom Crean hasn't had much success vs. Bo Ryan and Wisconsin with an overall record of 3-14 and 0-10 at Indiana. Even if you eliminate Crean's first three years in Bloomington which were spent rebuilding the program, the Hoosiers have struggled vs. the Badgers. Last year, Wisconsin was able to control tempo with low scoring wins (both as underdogs) of 68-54 and 64-59. Note that in last year's meeting in Bloomington, the Badgers were 10.5-point underdogs. For tonight's game, they are currently 4.5-point road favorites.

College Football Gambling: South Carolina irked about underdog status vs. Wisconsin

Wisconsin -2 vs. South Carolina O/U 51

Looks like South Carolina got word it's an underdog to a Big Ten squad.


"I was a little surprised," Badgers linebacker Chris Borland said this week. "We're confident that we're going to win. It's just this huge SEC bias out there that they're a great conference, which they are. But, yeah, I was surprised."

"I don't want to sound like a cocky type of guy, but I just kind of take it as a slap in the face," Sutton said this week. "We as a team collectively, we work hard and we bust our butts at practice every day and listen to what the coaches tell us to do. For us to be the highly ranked team coming into this game and be labeled as the underdog, we kind of take it as a slap in the face as a team

Wisconsin -1 vs. South Carolina O/U 51

Wisconsin is eager to atone for it defensive mishaps in the regular season finale loss to Penn State. The Badgers allowed 465 totals yards after not having surrendered more than 391 in a Big Ten contest. Head coach Gary Andersen pointed out that it was the big plays that cost UW the game. South Carolina has at times shown big play ability this season with 20 plays of 50 yards or more. Against its three toughest offensive opponents, Arizona State, Ohio State, and BYU, Wisky allowed 26 ppg and 409.3 ypg (5.07 ypp).

College Football Handicapping: Season Over/Under Wins Recap

12.02.2013     11:12 AM     Printer Friendly
Let's revisit this year's college football regular season over/under wins and see how everyone fared. We graded the plays using Pinnacle's lines from late July. Louisville is the only team still "live" with the Cardinals lined at 10.5 wins and 10-1 heading into Thursday's game at Cincinnati. Heartbreak city or jubilation for bettors who were in play with Wisconsin. This past weekend the Badgers were sitting 9-2 and 25-point chalk at home against Penn State but lost outright. Missouri was this year's biggest overachiever; lined at 6ov-123 and finished 11-1. Auburn was right behind them going four wins over its win total. Florida (-5), NC State (-4), and TCU (-4) were your biggest underachievers.

College Football Handicapping: Week 11 Injury Report

11.07.2013     07:59 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Stanford won’t have DE Ben Gardner for the rest of the season, but at least it is getting another 2012 All-Pac-12 selection back in the lineup. DE Henry Anderson is ‘probable’ vs. Oregon after missing several games with a leg injury.

Troy uses a two-QB system with Deon Anthony used in running situations. Anthony has rushed for 392 yards and three TDs while averaging 5.8 yards per carry. Anthony, who also has three TD passes without an interception, is ‘doubtful’ Thursday at UL-Lafayette after spraining his ankle in a 49-37 loss to ULM last week. Corey Robinson (18-8 touchdown-to-interception ratio) will get all the snaps for the Trojans.

Wisconsin WR Jared Abbrederis has been upgraded to ‘probable’ vs. BYU after sustaining a chest injury on a touchdown catch in Saturday’s 28-9 win at Iowa. The Badgers will also get back two-time All Big Ten linebacker Chris Borland, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

Iowa QB Jake Rudock left the Wisconsin loss in the second half with a knee injury, but he’s good to go and will start at Purdue. Rudock has a 12-9 TD-INT ratio.

College Football Betting Preview: BYU Cougars at Wisconsin Badgers

11.05.2013     10:54 AM     Otto Sports     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Otto Sports

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
BYU at Wisconsin
Saturday, 12:30 pm PT - ESPN
CRIS Opener:
Wisconsin -7.5 O/U 55.5
CRIS Current: Wisconsin -7.5 O/U 55.5
Rob Veno's Power Rating: Wisconsin -8.5
Marty Otto's Recommendation: Wisconsin

BYU makes the trek to Madison to face the red hot Wisconsin Badgers who come in off back to back conference road wins. This should prove to be a good matchup for a pair of teams that have had plenty of spread success this season (BYU 5-3 ATS, Wisconsin 7-0-1 ATS).

Wisconsin’s Gary Andersen is in his first year at the helm having come in from Utah State. Andersen is no stranger to BYU as his old side routinely caused the Cougars all sorts of trouble. He seems like a great fit here for the Badgers and his blue collar approach and willingness to lean on a three headed monster of a running attack has brought plenty of success.

The Badgers will pound the rock but it’s not just a Read more
