NBA Handicapping: Huh? No offense, all defense for the New York Knicks

01.12.2012     12:18 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Holy cow, the New York Knicks are playing defense! That or offenses league-wide are really, really bad. Perhaps a bit of both as the Knicks held Philadelphia to 39.5% shooting in last night's 85-79 win. In the victory – this has to be one of the craziest stats of the season – New York didn't hit a field goal the final 9:02 of the game. They also had nine turnovers during that span. Yet, they not only won the game but covered. Despite the struggles, the team isn't worried about its offense – which has been really bad of late – but rather thriving on producing stops on a consistent basis.

"We're not worried about our offense," Anthony said. "That will come. Right now, we're focused on our defense. That's where we need to be."

"… I think most importantly that once we got Tyson [Chandler] everybody was saying he was the key to the defensive changes. But it was going to start with myself and Amare to help him out. We can't rely on Tyson to do everything out there. As long as I'm out Read more

NC-Wilmington at Georgia State -12.5 O/U 132.5
It will be interesting to see how first-year head coach Ron Hunter’s Panthers handle this home game after going through a three-game CAA gauntlet. Tough struggles with fellow league kingpins Drexel, VCU and George Mason resulted in  2-1 SU and 3-0 ATS records but can GSU bring the same energy and focus tonight at home against fast paced NC-Wilmington? The Seahawks will be without starting forward Donte Morales who is averaging 22 minutes per game. Star forward Keith Rendelman (56.6 FG%, 15.2 ppg) picked up his second CAA Player of the Week award this past week.

Arkansas-Little Rock -2.5 at UL-Monroe O/U 118.5
Without their leading scorer, rebounder and three-point shooter, 6-10 Will Neighbour (Sun Belt POW Dec 25-31), the Trojans offense mustered just 91 points during his two-game absence. Granted those contests were versus SEC power Kentucky and defensive minded conference foe Florida Atlantic, but UALR shot 30% and 31% from the field. Neighbour is listed as Read more

NCAA Basketball Handicapping: Fouls and scoring on the downswing

01.12.2012     06:45 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
I was researching teams and pace of play recently when I came across this article on the number of fouls being called in college basketball games this season and the impact on scoring.

According to statistics provided by the NCAA, there have been 18.35 fouls called per game per team this season. That is the lowest since 1963, when the average was 18.20. Not surprisingly, this has had an effect on scoring. Overall team scoring average is 68.88 ppg, and that number may well drop as conference play continues.  It appears the refs are clamping down on physical play, making it a bit it's easier for players to dribble, pass and shoot.
Yet according to my research of O/U results on over 1,500 college basketball games this season, the OVER is winning just 49.1% of the time, which is right at the average the past four seasons (note: results may vary due to totals market moves). As teams play more conference games against familiar opponents and coaching staffs, the games tend to have less scoring overall with stronger defensive intensity. You still Read more

College Basketball Gambling: Wisconsin looks to snap three-game losing streak

01.12.2012     06:35 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Wisconsin at Purdue -2.5 O/U 112.5

Fantastic article about Wisconsin's struggles of late. The Badgers (1-3 Big Ten) recently lost back-to-back games at the Kohl Center and while the team's three-point shooting has been strong (37.3%), when the outside shot isn't falling, points have been very hard to come by.

Shot attempts in Ryan’s system are a de facto zero-sum game, so if one type of shot isn’t working, they should ideally shift some of those attempts inside. Instead, they’ve been shooting more from long range: almost 25% of their total three-point attempts on the year have come in the last three games.

NCAA Basketball Free Pick: Dayton Flyers at St. Bonaventure Bonnies

Dayton at St. Bonaventure -3.5 O/U 129.5
Recommendation: St. Bonaventure

Dayton has gotten off to a tremendous start in Atlantic-10 play, knocking off heavyweights Saint Louis and Temple in its first two conference games.  But the injury bug has bitten the Flyers hard, leaving them extremely short handed for their trip to St Bonnie's tonight. Last week, Dayton lost big man Josh Benson for the season with a knee injury.  Benson was second on the team in scoring, third in rebounding and the only legitimate shot-blocker on the roster. Now they've lost Chris Johnson to a concussion in practice on Monday, another key low post contributor: third on the team in scoring and second in rebounding. A third key low post contributor, Luke Fabrizius, suffered a fractured nose at Temple over the weekend, and will have to play with a mask for the first time in his career tonight.  That leaves the Flyers with only eight healthy scholarship players in their Read more

NCAA Basketball Betting: Off big win, Michigan an -8 favorite over Northwestern

01.11.2012     06:18 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Northwestern at Michigan -8 O/U 133.5

Two "systems" at work tonight in the Big Ten with Michigan playing host to Northwestern. Both teams run unique offensive sets while playing 1-3-1 zone and man-to-man defenses. On Sunday, Michigan dominated Wisconsin start to finish, 59-41. Northwestern has a week off after losing to Illinois by one at home. The Wildcats have won three of the last four meetings – Michigan was just a 2-point home favorite last year (won 75-66).

“It’s hard to emulate the speed and just the precision of (the Princeton offense),” said senior guard Stu Douglass. “It’s hard enough for us to guard it, let alone the scout team picking it up in one or two days. … We’ve done a pretty good job with the short time we’ve had. I’m not too Read more

Handicapper Fairway Jay continues his NFL Playoffs success

Submitted by blog entry.
Faithful followers and clients were rewarded with a pair of 20* Big Drive winners in the NFL Wild Card round this past weekend. Our top rated 20* Playoff Game of the Year winner on Houston was an easy cash as the Texans rolled to a 31-10 victory over Cincinnati. It was the Texans’ first-ever playoff appearance and victory and the strength of home field, frenzied fans, strong running game and dominating defense played out perfectly. With that victory, I extended my NFL postseason run to 6-0, 100% on side selections over the past three seasons. In addition, clients parlayed their profits on Sunday when we delivered our 20* NFL Playoff O/U Game of the Year – a never-in-doubt winner on the Giants-Falcons under the total as New York rolled 24-2.

The fundamentals at the point of attack played out as projected as the Texans ran for 188 yards on 35 attempts behind star running back Arian Foster’s 153 yards, two touchdowns and over 6.3 yards per rush. The Bengals managed just 76 yards on 19 attempts and rookie quarterback Andy Dalton threw three interceptions. Not to be outdone, the Giants rushed for 172 yards against Atlanta’s top-10 run defense that Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Maryland Terrapins at NC State Wolfpack

Maryland +11 at NC State O/U 148.5
Recommendation: Maryland

I think when it is all said and done, the final season results of both Maryland and NC State won't be too dissimilar. The Wolfpack probably have a bit more talent but with the Terps adding a few pieces over the last few weeks, the difference isn't 11 points. Another part of my intrigue towards the underdog is that NC State cannot be trusted in the price range against comparable competition. I've watched this team multiple times this season and during the regular flow of the game, they look extremely good. But it all goes haywire when possessions start to mean something or they need a defensive stop. Maryland PG Pe'Shone Howard (broken foot) and center Alex Lin (eligibility) should be fairly settled in the rotation having played four and three games respectively. As a result, the Terps now have eight players who have averaged over 20 minutes per game of playing time. I don't think the betting markets Read more

NFL Playoffs: Bettors supporting New Orleans Saints in shootout

01.06.2012     06:12 AM         Printer Friendly
Submitted by blog entry.
Sports bettors are expecting a shootout at the Superdome Saturday when the Saints host the Lions in the NFC Divisional round. Bookmakers are aware of the Saints’ success at home this season – a perfect 8-0 SU/ATS while averaging 41 ppg. The Saints scored 547 points this season (33.2 ppg); just behind Green Bay’s 560 points. The Lions averaged 29 ppg this season, and with a pair of 5,000 yard passers including Drew Brees’ record-setting 5,487 passing yards, there’s no doubt we’ll see plenty of passing and big plays through the air.
Despite the inflated side and total, public bettors are not holding back in their support of the Saints to win in a high-scoring shootout. Currently over 80% of the public is betting OVER the total with nearly 60% siding with the Saints. Some interesting trends and historical data are working against New Orleans supporters. Since 2003, teams that won at least 13 games in the regular season are 7-14 ATS in their first playoff game. In that same time frame, teams with more wins that their opponent have cashed just 42% of the time in opening round playoff games. Also since 2003, teams that average at least 30 ppg are Read more

College Basketball Free Pick: Montana State Bobcats at Idaho State Bengals

01.05.2012     07:18 AM     Andrew Lange     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Andrew Lange blog entry.
Montana State at Idaho State -1.5 O/U 137
Recommendation: Under

The only way Idaho State is going to have success in the Big Sky this season is to shorten the game and play defense. The Bengals simply don't have the horses to trade scores on a nightly basis. Last time out, they went on the road and picked up a rare victory – a 57-55 win at Northern Colorado. The game featured only 53 possessions (and UNC likes to run typically). Montana State is off a rare performance as well as it hung 86 on Portland State. It was really the perfect storm for the Bobcats – weak opponent that doesn't play defense and likes to run. On the road, I don't think we'll see that type of outcome. The total in this series has never been higher that 135 (2-10 O/U) and in Pocatello, the game scores were 95, 133, 107, 113, and 125. Play it under.
