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.

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

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

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

Arizona at Oregon +3 O/U 139.5
Recommendation: Oregon


This season ending matchup looks like an interesting one, and has completely different levels of importance to its competitors. For Arizona the result here means very little. At 28-2 the Wildcats are a likely #1 seed in the NCAA tournament and long ago wrapped up the regular season PAC-12 title. There is very little for them to gain or lose today. For Oregon, however, this could be a huge win for the revitalized Ducks. After opening the conference slate with a win over Utah back in January, Oregon dropped 8 of its next 10 games and looked like they were going to miss the Big Dance. However, they have turned it around and won their past six games, putting them at 9-8 in conference play and 21-8 overall. They could very easily be 13-4 in conference play as four losses were by exactly two points, including a 67-65 loss at Arizona on February 6th. A win here would solidify their position in the NCAA tourney and move them in contention for a 6th seed or better depending on how they fare in the PAC-12 Tournament. Three points here could be huge given Oregon's history of close losses, but I wouldn't be Read more

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
