NBA Handicapping: Knicks and Nets outclassed by Western Conference contenders

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

You don’t want to read too much into a generic February Sunday of NBA basketball. But it was a discouraging day for fans of the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, who were both outclassed significantly by Western Conference contenders. 

*New York (-3.5) lost to the LA Clippers 102-88 (missing expectations by 17.5 points)

*Brooklyn (+2) lost to San Antonio 111-86 (missing expectations by 23 points)

It was already bad enough for the Nets that they were home underdogs to the Spurs on a night when both Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili were out with injuries. Brooklyn got annihilated by the shorthanded Spurs! San Antonio won the second half 60-29.

I’m not going to run the full boxes. A few quick keys from Gotham's day-night doubleheader…

LA Clippers 102, New York 88

2-Point Percentage: Clippers 60%, New York 51%

3-Point Shooting: Clippers 10/28, New York 7/23

Rebounds: Clippers 43, New York Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: MAAC teams falter after tough stretch of schedule

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It was a wild night in the MAAC last night as league contenders Canisius, Iona, and Niagara all lost outright as betting favorites (Canisius opened -2.5 vs. Manhattan but closed as a pk/1-point underdog). It was a classic case of three teams that were simply worn down after beating up on one another. It started two Sunday's ago when Niagara beat rival Canisius on a buzzer beater. The Purple Eagles then beat Iona in a wild 93-90 overtime affair. They then lost to Loyola-MD in double overtime, 89-87. And Canisius and Iona hooked up last Saturday with the Golden Griffins prevailing 77-74. So basically, the top four teams in the league – Niagara, Loyola-MD, Iona, and Canisius – played an intense, highly competitive round robin tournament. Note that Fairfield already ran the gauntlet of top teams and as a result started conference play 2-6. But while everyone was trading wins and losses over the last two weeks, the Stags enjoyed ripping off five straight wins against the weaker teams in the league and now find themselves in the hunt. Anyway, something to consider tonight as Loyola-MD is a big favorite over bottom feeder Siena. The Greyhounds were on the winning end of that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Pick: California Golden Bears at Arizona State Sun Devils

California at Arizona State -3.5
Recommendation: Arizona State


Arizona State is the better team here and despite getting tons of backing in their last game at Washington, they might be priced cheaply here. They opened +5.5 at Washington and were bet all the way down to +3, losing the game 96-92 to the Huskies. It was not a great effort defensively for the Sun Devils as they trailed by double-digits most of the game while allowing Washington to hit 36 of 68 from the field. However, they never quit, and shot 37-58, 64% from the floor themselves in making a valiant comeback. They catch a Cal team off two home wins over Oregon and Oregon State, and one that is not as efficient on the road as they are at home. Cal is 2-3 SU and ATS on the road this year, and they lack the inside game to hurt the Sun Devils like Washington did. Arizona State is 4-1 SU at home this year, smashing UCLA by 18 in its last game on this court. Herb Sendek will shore up the defense Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Iowa Hawkeyes at Wisconsin Badgers

Iowa +9 at Wisconsin O/U 124.5
Recommendation: Iowa


My clients and I cashed a winner with Iowa as road underdogs at Ohio State last week, when the Hawkeyes rallied back from a 24-point deficit to make things verrrry interesting in the final minute in Columbus before falling short – despite an awful game from leading scorer Roy Devyn Marble. 

We cashed another winner supporting the Hawkeyes on Super Bowl Sunday as they led for extended stretches of the second half, an easy wire-to-wire pointspread cover as double-digit underdogs.  And there’s absolutely no reason to think that the Hawkeyes won’t be able to cash another winning bet for us tonight as they travel to Madison to take on a Badgers team that the Hawkeyes have beaten in each of the last three meetings.

Iowa hasn’t lost a game by ten points or more since getting blown out at Michigan on January 6th, hanging tough with quality Big Ten foes like the Ohio Read more

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

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

NBA Handicapping: Orlando Magic short on bodies vs. Philadelphia

Orlando at Philadelphia -9 O/U 190.5

According to Sports Options, this is what the Orlando Magic's injury report looks like heading into tonight's game at Philadelphia.

Arron Afflalo (calf) OUT
Glen Davis (foot) OUT
Jameer Nelson (forearm) OUT
JJ Redick (shoulder) OUT
Maurice Harkless (nose) PROBABLE
DeQuan Jones (football) DOUBTFUL


The Magic have lost nine straight. Sunday's 107-98 loss at Milwaukee snapped an eight-game winless streak against the spread.

Nevada sportsbooks turn small profit from Super Bowl XLVII

02.04.2013     06:27 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Now that the smoke has cleared, it looks as if Baltimore's outright win and the game going over the total helped Nevada sportsbooks turn a small profit. Had San Francisco punched in six late and won by two or three, the books reportedly would have crushed.


“We’re a small winner,” reported Jimmy Vaccaro, the spokesman for William Hill sports books. “We ended up with some Ravens moneyline late, so that took some of our steam out. But we did OK.”

“If everyone did what we did, then I would expect we’d break the record,” MGM Resorts sports book director Jay Rood said. “We fared pretty well, but it’s difficult to say how everyone else did. There’s a strong possibility that some of the local places could have seen more Ravens money.”

“The props were a very small winner,” Vaccaro said. “The Kaepernick kid didn’t help. The safety and touchdown were two of the bigger ones of the day and we lost both of them, but we beat most of the other

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

02.02.2013     09:21 AM     Printer Friendly

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
