College Basketball Betting Free Play: West Virginia Mountaineers at Iowa State Cyclones

West Virginia at Iowa State -7 O/U 158.5
Recommendation: Under


They'll no doubt be a lot of pace and points in this afternoon's West Virginia-Iowa State game but oddsmakers aren't messing around by opening this game 160. It's since been bet down slightly to 158.5 but I see a few factors that make playing the under worth a bet. For starters, Iowa State talked all week about shoring up its leaky defense. That doesn't mean they're going to start holding teams in the 60's as their games are way too fast for that. But at home off of allowing 94 points to Oklahoma, I expect a much better effort. Next, West Virginia doesn't have a very efficient offense. In fact, the Mountaineers are averaging less than a point per possession in Big XII play. And it's important to note that not one WVU Big XII game has topped 158 in regulation. In the first meeting between these two squads there was a fair amount of pace (144 possession) and points 146 but it went under the closing total of 150. Neither team has changed much of all since that game back in mid-January and yet today's total is eight points higher. In order for this game to go over the total you'll need close Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Michigan Wolverines at Illinois Fighting Illini

Michigan at Illinois -6.5 O/U 121
Recommendation: Illinois


Michigan is an injury riddled mess right now; a team that I’m looking to bet against in hostile environments both tonight and moving forward.  The Wolverines are coming off another tight, deflating loss at Indiana over the weekend, their fourth defeat in the last five games.  Two of those losses (Michigan State and Wisconsin) were overtime affairs.  And it’s not going to get any easier for John Beilein’s squad tonight as they travel to Assembly Hall in Champaign to take on the Illini.

Michigan’s injury woes are getting worse, not better.  Four of their five starters played at least 34 minutes at Indiana, and at least part of the reason why the Wolverines have been struggling so much in close games is because they are short-handed, running out of gas in the latter stages of tight contests.  Let’s not forget that this team lost FIVE underclassmen to the NBA over the last three drafts.  Last month, star guard and leading scorer Caris LeVert was lost to a season ending foot injury.  Since then, they’ve lost third Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Xavier Musketeers at Marquette Golden Eagles

Xavier -3 at Marquette O/U 137
Recommendation: Under 


Xavier has been one of the tougher teams in the country to handicap from a totals perspective. The pace of their games is typically fairly quick but their offense and defense comes and goes on a weekly basis. Tonight, they head to Marquette for a critical game as the Musketeers sit 15-9 and 6-6 in Big East play. The Golden Eagles meanwhile continue to fight despite being short on depth and talent. They've lost five Big East games that came down to the final two minutes of play. Veteran guard Matt Carlino missed Marquette's last game and while they managed to win at Seton Hall, the team shot 1-of-10 from three and netted only 57 points. Carlino (concussion) is questionable tonight and if he is ruled out, expect the market to knock this total down a point or two. But even if he does suit up, Marquette is far more comfortable grinding out games and trying to keep things close. They simply can't match Xavier from an offensive perspective if this game is played in transition. I think the first meeting is very indicative of what we'll see tonight: 124 possessions and 120 points -- and that was Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Nebraska desperate to find offense

02.10.2015     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Listening to Nebraska head coach Tim Miles talk about his team's offensive woes is pretty entertaining. The Cornhuskers have failed to top 45 points in thee of their last four games but yet inexplicably popped for 76 and 79 against Northwestern and Michigan State. They'll likely need north of 60 tonight as they play host to the nation's most efficient offense. Wisconsin is averaging an unreal 1.27 points per possession in Big Ten play. To put that number in perspective, that's 76 points on 60 possessions. Wisconsin however doesn't have the strongest of defenses. They currently rank 10th in the Big Ten in defensive efficiency (1.04 ppp allowed).  
 

 “We’re not even running to our stuff and getting to our spots and making hard cuts and running sharply in screens. Now we’ve lost that, and you’ve really lost a chance to be a good offensive team,” Miles said. 
 
 “You have to run with pace. You have to have an

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Sports betting becoming part of mainstream

02.09.2015     08:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Something remarkable is happening in the world of sports betting right now; a strong push towards nationwide acceptance and legalization of our favorite pastime.  I moved to Las Vegas in 1998 and I’ve never seen anywhere close to the level of positive momentum that sports betting is enjoying here in February, 2015.  What has changed and why is it changing when it comes to broader attitudes about sports betting?  Read on to find out.

Over the course of the last few months, there has literally been a paradigm shift is how sports betting is viewed nationally.  I did a TV interview for PBS Newshour before the Super Bowl; an interview that was excerpted in a nine minute piece on the national nightly news about sports betting here in Vegas and across the country from a fairly conservative news organization.  If that’s not an indicator that sports betting has moved to the mainstream, I don’t know what is!

New NBA Commissioner Adam Sliver spent many of his formative years as a league administrator overseas as the league’s deputy commissioner.  His quote from David Purdum’s excellent article in ESPN The Magazine Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Kansas State's up-and-down season continues

02.05.2015     01:08 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Man, Kansas State is a mess. After starting the season 7-7, the Wildcats reeled off five wins in six games to reposition themselves as a potential NCAA Tournament squad. Less than two weeks later, K-State is off three straight losses and arguably their best player, Marcus Foster, has been suspended. Foster has been in and out of Bruce Weber's doghouse for much of the season and while he's been an obvious distraction to the team, the Wildcats don't bring much to the table without him. Last night, without Foster, the Wildcats managed only 47 points in a 17-point loss to bottom feeder Texas Tech. Something has to give on Saturday as KSU plays host to an equally toxic Texas squad that has dropped four straight.


“Our whole team, we have been plagued from the start of the season by immaturity, by a lack of discipline and a lack of consistency,” Weber told reporters after the game. “That has been on and off the court, all year. I gave them a sheet of paper at the beginning of

College Basketball Handicapping: Ohio State and Purdue sticking to man-to-man defense

02.04.2015     08:09 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
While zone defense has become all of the rage in college basketball, both Ohio State and Purdue have ditched it in favor of playing good old fashion man-to-man. The results have paid dividends, particularly for the Boilermakers who rank No. 1 in the Big Ten in effective field goal defense (43.9%). The total for tonight's game was bet down from 143 to 139.


"I liked our zone early, but right now I'm liking what we're doing defensively in terms of getting our guys understanding what we're attempting to take away," Matta said. "Our ball screen defense is getting better in terms of rotations, and the bigs are getting better at being active."

"When you go play man-to-man, it teaches you to position a little better. Be in help, but you also have to know where your man is."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Illinois Fighting Illini

Rutgers at Illinois -11.5 O/U 126.5
Recommendation: Under


Illinois has managed to survive without the services or Rayvonte Rice (7 games) and Aaron Cosby (3 games), both of whom are suspended for tonight's game. As a result, they've slowed down the tempo some and upped their game on the defensive end of the floor. They've held Maryland, Nebraska, Purdue, and Penn State to less than a point per possession and should continue that trend tonight as Rutgers sports arguably the worst offense in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights have netted 50, 51, 51, and 64 points their last four games. The 64-point effort came against Indiana which hasn't played much if any defense this season. Adding to Knights' struggles is the fact that they are playing their third game in six nights and using essentially a five-and-a-half-man rotation. Against the Hoosiers, Rutgers' starting five all played 34 minutes or more. Back on the road, their only option is to slow down the pace of the game and hope to knock down just enough shots to stay within striking distance. Current pointspread suggests we could avoid late fouls which puts us on the under.

College Basketball Handicapping: Ilinois and Rutgers both dealing with issues

02.03.2015     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Couple things to consider before betting tonight's Rutgers-Illinois game. For starters, the Illini will continue to be without the services of Aaron Cosy and Rayvonte Rice who while cleared to play injury-wise remain suspended due to unspecified reasons.


"They're indefinitely suspended and that’s where it’s at," Groce said Monday at a news conference. "That’s between me and them."



Next, we have Rutgers playing its third game in six days. The most recent, a hard fought loss to Indiana on Saturday, saw five Scarlet Knight players log 34 minutes or more.


“Losing six in a row, you have to keep your kids upbeat,” Jordan said. “Keep them in a positive mood, keep their confidence soaring through the roof. You can’t let them get down on each other or themselves.”
