NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Loyola (MD) Greyhounds vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

Loyola Maryland vs. Ohio State -17 O/U 130.5
Recommendation: Ohio State


Let’s tip off our Thursday evening with a blowout winner in NCAA Tournament action.  Loyola Maryland (24-8) went on a 3-0 SU/ATS run to capture the MAAC Tournament title and advance to the Big Dance. The Greyhounds are fairly methodical on offense and don’t have the talent or athletic ability to keep up with the Buckeyes. Ohio State (27-7) can excel in open court and half court sets, and statistically they are solid across the board. OSU tied for the top spot in the Big Ten in field goal shooting (47%) while holding opponents to just 41%. Ohio State is one of the top rebounding teams in the country thanks to super soph Jared Sullinger – a player that Loyola can’t handle in the middle. Sullinger and Deshawn Thomas both shoot over 53%, and with Aaron Craft at the point, their balance and strength can beat anyone. When asked to win by margin, Ohio State Read more

NCAA Tournament Betting: Four position matchups you need to know

03.14.2012     10:21 AM     Rob Veno     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Rob Veno

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The NCAA Tournament always brings a lot of unknown teams, players and matchups into its 68 (now 66) team field. It’s a heavy chore to follow and be aware of each team’s style and personnel beyond the surface statistical numbers. Here are five matchups that I feel are very important in Round One:

1.  Belmont vs. Georgetown – Belmont has a strength that is almost non-existent in this tournament field. They often play a pair of excellent point guards at the same time. Senior Drew Hanlen (team leading 2.2 assist-turnover ratio) and junior Kerron Johnson (team leading 5.2 assists per game) are different in their styles but very effective at directing the offense. Each is proficient at running the fast break but in the half court, Hanlen is a perimeter based point who leads the team in three point shooting percentage while Johnson is a lightning quick penetrator who excels in the drive and dish game. Johnson won the Alabama high school Mr. Basketball award three years ago, defeating Kentucky one and done stars C DeMarcus Cousins and G Eric Bledsoe. The Bruins ability to go with a pair of experienced and talented PG’s could be Read more

NIT Free Betting Pick: Akron Zips at Northwestern Wildcats

Akron at Northwestern -6 O/U 142
Recommendation: Northwestern


This has mental letdown written all over it, as both teams had NCAA Tournament dreams dashed in their conference tournaments. But for traveling Akron, the situation is especially poor.  Following a last second loss to Ohio in the MAC title game, the Zips had their zest taken. Despite some solid perimeter personnel and a 7-footer to patrol the paint, Akron is likely to struggle against a rested Wildcats team that can mix and match their Princeton offense and defensive looks. Northwestern can be tough to support as mid-range favorite with their smaller front line and lack of rebounding strength, but with and Northwestern’s  Drew Crawford and star scorer John Shurna leading a Wildcats team that averages nine made 3-pointers per game, and emerging sophomore guard JerShon Cobb’s recent scoring surge, the Wildcats become the preferred play.

NCAA Tournament Gambling Preview: Montana Grizzlies vs. Wisconsin Badgers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NCAA Tournament East Regional
No. 4 Wisconsin -9 vs. No. 13 Montana O/U 118.5
Thursday, 11:10 am PT - Albuquerque, N.M.
Rob Veno Power Rating: Wisconsin -7


Betting Take: Good matchup here as both teams play similar styles. Montana isn't as deliberate on offense as Wisconsin, but the Grizzlies prefer a slow place and play solid defense. They also have size with 7-0 center Derek Selvig patrolling the paint. But the Big Sky is notorious for not performing well when asked to step up in class, especially in the postseason. Montana did beat Long Beach at home but lost to San Francisco, Oregon State, Colorado State and Nevada. Wisconsin becomes an interesting handicap when laying this type of price outside of Madison. In a short-lined game, the Badgers are capable of beating most teams. But their style and propensity to sit on leads makes laying near double-digits tricky. Also tricky is putting the ball in the bucket for this team. They carved up Indiana's weak defense in the Big Ten Tournament for 79 points but turned right around with a 52-point effort against Michigan State. Montana isn’t in the Spartans' class Read more

College Basketball Betting Notes: Northwestern not pleased with NIT seed

Akron at Northwestern -6.5 O/U

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So what if you were 1-10 vs. the RPI top 50. So what if you haven't made an NCAA Tournament since...well ever. You got a home game in the NIT baby! Wait. You're disappointed with your NIT seed too? Umm, did we mention you were 1-10 VS. THE RPI TOP 50!?!? Just be glad you didn't get shipped to Quinnipiac for the CBI.


“I was surprised,” Carmody said. “I thought we were a higher seed than that. I thought we were at worst a two seed.

“There was disappointment yesterday, but the real disappointment was Thursday [losing to Minnesota in the Big Ten tournament.] You have five days. I think that was the disappointment. As it turns out, the way it looks to be, even if we had beaten those guys, we weren’t getting in. Read more

Top 10 tips for gambling on the 2012 NCAA Tournament

03.13.2012     06:35 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
When March Madness rolls around, no one is immune to the itch to get in on the action, whether it’s laying down a bet or simply competing in an office pool. I’ll share my Top 10 NCAA Tournament gambling strategies in this article. There are no surprises here – veteran bettors know this stuff already, but it never hurts to think about these concepts again before the Big Dance begins.

1) Fade the teams that looked great last weekend
There’s no such thing as carrying over momentum from conference tournament weekend to the Big Dance. Of the Top 16 teams in the Big Dance – the top four teams from each region – only four of them (Michigan State, Louisville, Missouri and Florida State) won their conference tournaments.

Many of the top contenders for the national title dropped out early; focusing on this coming weekend as opposed to last weekend. The teams that went all out to secure a bid or win their conference title but came up short, like Cincinnati, Baylor and San Diego State , tend to be particularly strong on the fade list.

2) Winning your office pool requires luck

NCAA Tournament Betting Preview: Iona Gaels at BYU Cougars

03.12.2012     12:45 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
NCAA Tournament West Regional
Iona vs. BYU -2 O/U 161.5
Tuesday, 6 pm PT - Dayton, Ohio
Rob Veno Power Rating: BYU -1.5


Betting Take: Two teams that just slipped into the postseason square off in the 14th seed play-in game. The winner takes on no. 3 seed Marquette. Against St. Mary's, Loyola Marymount and Gonzaga, BYU went just 2-5 SU with two of those losses coming at the once vaunted Marriott Center. Defensively, the Cougs' numbers look decent but they had a lot difficulty defending pretty much any team with an above average offense. They'll certainly see that against Iona who during the preseason hung 90 and 89 on Purdue and Maryland respectively. Like BYU, the Gaels often win by outscoring the opposition. Note that against the top two defenses in the MAAC, Fairfield and Manhattan, Iona went 1-3 ATS. Also of note, Iona was 1-3 O/U in games lines 160 or above. BYU didn't play a game lined over 160 and was 4-6 O/U in games line 150 or above. A lot of things outside of just pace need to go right in order to top 161 points in a college basketball game.

Big Ten Gambling Notes: Will Michigan State, Izzo take conference tourney seriously?

03.09.2012     06:05 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Iowa vs. Michigan State -11

Since winning the Big Ten Tournament and National Championship back in 2000, Michigan State has been notorious for not putting much effort in these conference tourneys. Despite being one of, if not the best program in the league over the last decade plus, Tom Izzo's teams are an uninspired 9-11 SU and 8-12 ATS with only one trip to the finals and zero titles. Izzo claims this year is different and that the Spartans do care about the Big Ten Tournament. This coming from a man who routinely says his teams will play up-tempo and then proceeds to go out and play five straight games under the total.


"You gotta be careful what you say around here because people think I think the Big Ten tournament is one-and-done time," he said. Read more

Big XII Tournament Betting Free Play: Texas Longhorns vs. Iowa State Cyclones

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Texas vs. Iowa State +1.5 O/U 138
Recommendation: Iowa State


The betting markets are pricing this like it’s a ‘must win’ game for Texas for their NCAA Tournament at-large chances, which it is. That being said, the reason that it’s a ‘must win’ game for the Longhorns is because they haven’t been a particularly good team this year, and they enter the Big XII tourney on a nasty late season slide.  Just because Texas needs this win doesn’t mean they’re going to get it!

Texas closed out the regular season on a 2-3 SU, 1-4 ATS slide. One of those wins came in overtime against hapless Texas Tech, not exactly a confidence inspiring victory. The other win came in come-from-behind fashion at home against slumping Oklahoma, another mediocre result. The Longhorns only pointspread cover during this span came in a ten point loss as 12 point underdogs against Kansas. Rick Barnes has an extremely young team, Read more
