College Basketball Handicapping: Notre Dame falters, Iowa State impresses

02.05.2013     07:59 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

The struggling Notre Dame Fighting Irish flailed again Monday night in a 63-47 loss at Syracuse as 8-point underdogs. That’s now seven of the last eight games that the Irish have failed to meet market expectations in regulation.

Notre Dame’s Recent Struggles (going back in time from tonight)

Notre Dame (+8.5) lost at Syracuse 63-47 (missed by 7.5 points)

Notre Dame (-6) went overtime at DePaul (missed by 6 points in regulation)

Notre Dame (-8.5) beat Villanova 65-60 (missed by 3.5 points)

Notre Dame (-3.5) won at South Florida 73-65 (only regulation cover in last eight)

Notre Dame (-5.5) lost to Georgetown 63-47 (missed by 10.5 points)

Notre Dame (-11.5) beat Rutgers 69-66 (missed by 8.5 points)

Notre Dame (-7) lost at St. John’s 67-63 (missed by 11 points)

Notre Dame (-8.5) lost to Connecticut 65-58 (missed by 15.5 points)

The market has corrected some…as that early quartet of big Read more

MLB Handicapping: Sale one of this year's top Verducci Effect candidates

02.05.2013     06:20 AM     Printer Friendly
Here a list of this year's Verducci Effect candidates. The biggest increase in workload came from Chicago's Chris Sale who was in and out of the rotation at times due to arm difficulties. Washington’s Stephen Strasburg also made the list despite being shut down late in the season.

Mike Leake, Yovani Gallardo, and Jeremy Hellickson all suffered slight regressions – depending on what numbers you go by – but for the most part remained healthy. Texas' Matt Harrison however was lights out though as Verducci points out, pitchers with bigger Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: College Basketball's best against the spread

02.04.2013     11:06 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Super Bowl is in the rear view mirror after Sunday’s wild Baltimore victory, which can only mean one thing – college hoops is on center stage for the next eight weeks.  I’ve been writing game previews for ESPN.com/Insider for the last month, but I’ve yet to write a true ‘college basketball overview’ column for any publication so far this season.  That streak ends here.

I’m going take a look at the very best pointspread ‘regular board’ teams in the country in this week’s column.  The list of ATS juggernauts is likely to surprise many people due to its diversity.  Elite level teams aren’t necessarily pointspread winners, and bottom feeders can cash ticket after ticket if the betting markets set numbers that allow them to hang within the number as big underdogs.  Look no further than the single best ATS team in the nation so far this season. 

I’ll wager that less than a dozen people in the country knew that Fordham is the #1 ATS team in all of DI basketball this year; 14-5 against the number.  The Rams are 6-16 SU, just 2-5 in Atlantic-10 play.  Read more

Congratulations to all who won last night. Sincere condolences to all who lost (unless you did so with arrogant posturing through the week, then you got what you deserved!). Let’s crunch the numbers…

Yards-Per-Play: Baltimore 5.2, San Francisco 7.8

Super Bowl XLVII Gambling: Let's Talk About the 49ers' Defense

02.02.2013     09:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

I’m starting to hear a lot of chatter about how San Francisco’s defense is going to be the deciding factor in Sunday’s Super Bowl meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. While the team certainly has a top-notch defense, it may not be quite as dominating as you were thinking.

It’s easy to remember the highlights from the past season…where the Niners embarrassed teams like the Jets, Bills, and even the Bears in a big TV game. But, when facing elite offenses, it’s been a slightly different story.

Here’s what opposing offenses from PLAYOFF teams did against San Francisco’s defense this season starting with their season opener at Green Bay, and ending with their NFC Championship win over Atlanta. If you’re new to the blog, drive points are those scored or allowed on drives of 60 yards or more. The average this year was around 13 per offense per game. Note that the chart below deletes non-offensive scoring (for example...Green Bay had a Read more

NBA Handicapping: Howard hurt, Lakers falter late in loss to Suns

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

For most of the evening, the Los Angeles Lakers looked to be well on their way to winning their second game in two nights, further establishing that they were in warrior mode in their attempt to chase down the #8 seed in the Western Conference brackets.

Midway through the fourth quarter, Dwight Howard re-aggravated his labrum injury trying to score in traffic. He left the game with the Lakers leading 78-73. Phoenix would win the rest of the game 19-8, striking the Lakers playoff hopes with a lightning bolt in the process…

Phoenix 92, LA Lakers 86

2-Point Percentage: Lakers 49%, Phoenix 49%

3-Point Shooting: Lakers 8/27, Phoenix 3/12

Free Throws: Lakers 12/19, Phoenix 13/15

1’s and 2’s: Lakers 62, Phoenix 83

Rebounds: Lakers 46, Phoenix 36

Turnovers: Lakers 19, Phoenix 11

You can see the two biggest issues for the Lakers were scoring differential inside the arc (Michael Beasley Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Close games in the Big East, blowouts in the SEC

01.30.2013     01:28 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here are a few conference-only statistics from Ken Pom that break down home courts (SU), close games (4 points or less and/or OT), and blowouts (19 points or more). There are 33 conferences if you include independent. Below are the top 10 conferences and rank. In terms of home court, the ACC has been the strongest at 30-11 SU. The Missouri Valley Conference is also north of 70%. The Big East has had the highest percentage of close game at 30.9% with the A-10 not far behind at 27.3%. Interesting that despite its slow pace (63.4 possessions per game) and low scoring affairs, only six of 46 Big Ten conference games have been decided by four points or less or went to overtime. When it comes to blowouts, the SEC is top dog with 25% of its games decided by 19 points or more – in large part because of Florida who has five of the 11.
 
Big Ten
Home Court: 26-20, 56.5% (23)
Close Game: 6 of 46, 13.0% (28)
Blowout: 9 of 46, 19.6% (7)

Big East

College Basketball Gambling: Kentucky impresses in win over Ole Miss

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

It’s been a down year for Kentucky so far, at least in terms of preseason expectations. Too many pundits and fans were assuming head coach John Calipari would just reload every year and coast to a championship with future NBAers. The Wildcats are finally starting to play to its talent this season. Tuesday’s 87-74 win at #19 Mississippi as a 3-point underdog was particularly impressive.

Kentucky 87, #19 Mississippi 74

2-Point Percentage: Kentucky 61%, Ole Miss 33%

3-Point Shooting: Kentucky 8/23, Ole Miss 5/16

Free Throws: Kentucky 23/37, Ole Miss 13/20

1’s and 2’s: Kentucky 63, Ole Miss 59

Rebounds: Kentucky 42, Ole Miss 44

Turnovers: Kentucky 9, Ole Miss 7

(Kentucky 22-20, Ole Miss 25-24)

NBA Gambling: Estimated Power Ratings Based on Market Prices

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Will try to update these at least once a week for the time being. May do that more often if trade news or other stories develop. As I worked through the numbers, a few teams seemed to be getting a little more respect at home than on the road…meaning slightly more than home court advantage by itself already suggests. So, I’ll have a few teams with different numbers for road and home.

86: Oklahoma City, Miami

85: San Antonio, LA Clippers

82: New York, Memphis, Denver (home)

81: LA Lakers (home), Denver (road), San Antonio when Duncan’s out

80: Houston, Brooklyn, Indiana, Golden State (home), Utah (home), LA Lakers (road)

79: Portland, Chicago, Atlanta, Golden State (road), Utah (road)

78: Milwaukee, Dallas, Boston without Rondo (a guess for now)

77: New Orleans, Washington

76: Philadelphia, Detroit, Toronto

75: Orlando

74: Phoenix, Minnesota

73: Sacramento

NHL Handicapper Free Pick: Vancouver Canucks at Los Angeles Kings

01.28.2013     11:27 AM     ICC     Printer Friendly
Submitted by ICC

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Vancouver +120 at Los Angeles O/U 5
Recommendation: Vancouver


The Vancouver Canucks are worth a shot as road underdogs tonight as they travel to Los Angeles to battle the defending Stanley Cup champion Kings in a playoff revenge spot.

Vancouver didn’t play a great game in their 4-1 loss at San Jose last night but it is worth noting they went 0-fer on the power play and also hit multiple goal posts in the loss making the score a little bit more lopsided than it could have been. The Canucks aren’t in the greatest travel situation here playing their second of back-to-back games but we finally saw some improvement (3-1) on Sunday with teams playing in that situation. However, the major revenge angle and chip on the collective shoulders of the Canucks should negate some of the concerns of the travel spot.

Los Angeles has been suffering from the usual Stanley Cup hangover with a 1-2-1 start to the season. The Kings have had problems scoring goals, averaging just 2 per game and putting less than 30 shots on goal per game. LA finally nabbed its first win of the season on the weekend in Phoenix by a score of 4-2 but the Read more
