Notre Dame Squares Off Against Georgetown

No. 18 Notre Dame Fighting Irish at No. 8 Georgetown Hoyas
Monday 7:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPN

The Fighting Irish (20-8 SU, 11-9-2 ATS) took a 9-game winning streak (8-1 ATS) into St. John’s on Saturday (result pending). This is now the top defensive team during Big East play (58.5 PPG) along with South Florida. The ‘under’ is 5-2 in conference road tilts and would be a perfect 7-0 if not for two overtime games.

Georgetown (20-6 SU, 12-9 ATS) also has a pending Saturday game, a visit from struggling Villanova. The Hoyas’ last three losses have come away, but they’re 6-1 SU at home in the conference, albeit just 2-5 ATS. They have a strange trend going with the ‘over’ and ‘under’ alternating the last 11 games.

This is the first meeting between the teams this year. Notre Dame has won and covered the last three, once in Georgetown.

No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks at Oklahoma State Cowboys
Monday 9:00 p.m. (ET) on ESPN

Kansas (23-5 SU, 14-12-1 ATS) was involved in the top Saturday game versus No. 3 Missouri. That game hasn’t completed at press time, but a win would clinch at least a share of the Big 12 title and could cause a letdown on Monday. The Jayhawks have won 3-straight away, the one failure to cover at Texas A&M last Wednesday, 66-58 as 10-point favorites.

The Cowboys are 13-15 SU and 13-12-1 ATS pending Saturday’s home result against Texas A&M. They’re 1-7 SU and 4-4 ATS away in the Big 12, but a very dangerous 5-2 SU and 4-2-1 ATS at Gallagher-Iba Arena. That includes a 79-72 upset over then No. 2 Missouri back in late January.

Oklahoma State got a cover at the Jayhawks on February 11, an 81-66 loss as big 17 ½-point ‘dogs. The team is 2-0 SU and ATS at home versus Kansas since 2008.

Big Monday

February 26, 2012

**Notre Dame at Georgetown**

--BetOnline.com opened Georgetown (21-6 straight up, 13-9 against the spread) as a six-point favorite with a total of 116.

--Georgetown has won 14 of its 15 home games, compiling a 5-5 spread record. The Hoyas cruised to an easy win Saturday over Villanova, taking the cash as 10-point home favorite in a 67-46 triumph. The 113 combined points easily stayed ‘under’ the 135-point total. Jason Clark and Otto Porter both finished with 15 points and six rebounds.

--Notre Dame (20-9 SU, 11-10-2 ATS) saw its nine-game winning streak ended Saturday when it lost a 61-58 decision at St. John’s as a six-point road ‘chalk.’ Jack Cooley and Scott Martin scored 18 points apiece in the losing effort.

--Mike Brey’s squad has been an underdog 12 times this year, going 7-4-1 ATS with six outright wins. However, we should note that the Irish have won outright in its last five games as an underdog.

--The Hoyas own a 3-3 spread record in six games as single-digit home favorites.

--Notre Dame has won three in a row over Georgetown both SU and ATS, and the ‘under’ has also cashed in each of those head-to-head encounters.

--Even though the ‘over’ is 3-2 in its last five games, the ‘under’ is 16-7 overall for Notre Dame.

--Totals have been an overall wash for the Hoyas (11-11) and the ‘under’ is 6-4 in its 10 home games with a total.

--ESPN will have the telecast at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.

**Kansas at Oklahoma State**

--Kansas (24-5 SU, 14-13-1 ATS) faces a quick turnaround after playing a 45-minute thriller Saturday afternoon in Lawrence. The Jayhawks rallied from 19 points down to win an 87-86 decision over Missouri in overtime. They got another extraordinary effort out of Thomas Robinson, who finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds and got a three-point play the hard way late in regulation to force the extra session. Tyshawn Taylor scored 24 points and dished out five assists compared to only one turnover.

--Oklahoma State (14-15 SU, 14-12-1 ATS) has had a tough year but has been tough at home, where it has won three straight and is 11-3 SU and 6-5-1 ATS. The Cowboys beat up on Texas A&M by a 60-42 count Saturday as 3 ½-point home favorites. They won convincingly despite playing without their second-leading scorer, Le’Bryan Nash, who averages 13.3 points and 5.0 rebounds per game. Nash is ‘questionable’ vs. KU with an arm injury.

--Brian Williams was the catalyst against the Aggies, scoring a game-high 17 points. Keiton Page, who leads OSU in scoring with a 16.3 points-per-game average, added 15 points.

--Robinson is the leading candidate to win Big 12 Player of the Year honors, averaging 17.8 points and 11.9 rebounds per contests. Taylor averages 16.7 points and 5.0 assists per game.

--Due to Nash’s injury situation, BetOnline.com didn’t have an opening number for this game late Sunday afternoon.

--Totals have been an overall wash for OSU (13-13-1), but the ‘under’ has cashed at an 8-4 clip in its home games.

--The ‘under’ is 16-10-2 overall for KU, but the ‘over’ is 3-1-1 in its last five games.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. Eastern on ESPN.

**B.E.’s Bonus Nuggets**

--If you watched any of Georgia’s win over Florida on Saturday, you had to notice the great work by the camera man in constantly focusing on Al Horford and his wife during breaks in the action. Horford was already one of my favorite Gators of all time and I didn’t even know he had married the 2003 Miss Universe! That would be the lovely Amelia Vega of the Dominican Republic. Big Al!

--Coach of the Year candidates:
1-Mike Brey (Notre Dame)
2-Frank Haith (Missouri)
3-Buzz Williams (Marquette)
4-John Calipari (Kentucky)
5-Bill Self (Kansas)
6-Jim Boeheim (Syracuse)
7-Steve Prohm (Murray St.)
8-Gregg Marshall (Wichita St.)
9-Steve Alford (New Mexico)
10-Tony Bennett (Virginia)

--South Florida bolstered its at-large hopes with Sunday’s 46-45 home win over Cincinnati. The Bearcats, who were also in dire need of a win, took the cash as three-point road underdogs.

--Northwestern caught a huge break in its quest for the school’s first NCAA Tournament bid. John Shurna got a fortunate whistle on what appeared to be a good defensive play with 2.6 seconds remaining and the Wildcats trailing by one. The senior forward calmly sank both free-throw attempts to propel Northwestern into the win column. Bill Carmody’s squad still has work to do, but that was a game it absolutely had to have.

--Biggest Bubble Losers from the weekend:
1-Mississippi St. – blown out at Alabama
2-North Carolina St. – costly loss to Clemson in overtime
3-UConn – gusty second-half effort wasn’t quite enough vs. Syracuse
4-Harvard – probably blew at-large chances with home loss to Penn
5-LSU – blowout loss at Ole Miss puts a fork in the Tigers

--Biggest Bubble Winners
1-Iowa St. – Cyclones are ‘in’ after win at Kansas St.
2-Alabama – Anthony Grant’s stock on the rise
3-Purdue – Boilers handed Michigan its first home loss
4-VCU – Rams dominated George Mason
5-Memphis – Tigers stayed atop C-USA standings

Games to Watch

February 27, 2012

The rubber meets the road in men’s college basketball as the top teams in the nation head into the final week of the regular season with one last chance to impress the NCAA Tournament Committee before the start of next week’s conference tournaments. On Sunday Mar. 12 the committee will select the 68 teams that will compete for this season’s national title and what happens this last week could have a major impact on shaping each of the four brackets.
The following is a brief look at the top matchups for each day this week along with a few facts and figures to help handicap the games.

Monday, Feb. 27 - No. 5 Kansas Jayhawks vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys (ESPN)

Kansas took one step closer to the Big 12 regular season title with a thrilling 87-86 overtime victory over No.3 Missouri this past Saturday as an eight-point home favorite. The Jayhawks are now 24-5 straight-up and 14-13-1 against the spread. They are 9-4 SU (6-6-1 ATS) on the road the total has stayed ‘under’ in 11 of the 13 games.

Oklahoma State climbed to 14-15 SU (14-12-1 ATS) with a 60-42 victory over Texas A&M as a 3 ½-point home favorite this past Saturday. The Cowboys are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against Kansas, but 5-4 ATS. The total has gone ‘over’ in three of the past four meetings. They are nine-point home underdogs this time around.

Tuesday, Feb. 28 - No. 6 Michigan State Spartans vs. No. 24 Indiana Hoosiers (ESPN)

Michigan State comes in with a 24-5 SU (18-8 ATS) record overall and it can lock-up the Big Ten regular season title with a win over Indiana. It is currently 13-3 SU in conference play and 7-5 both SU and ATS on the road. The total has stayed ‘under’ in seven of 12 games away from home.

Indiana has won five of its last six games SU to move to 22-7 SU (14-9 ATS) overall and it is 9-7 SU in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers are 16-1 SU (8-3 ATS) at home this season but they have lost six straight to the Spartans over the past few seasons including the last two at home. They are just 2-4 ATS over this span.

Wednesday, Feb. 29 - No. 10 Marquette Golden Eagles vs. Cincinnati Bearcats (ESPN2)

Marquette is 13-3 SU in Big East play and 24-5 SU overall. It is 15-10-1 ATS this season and the total has gone ‘over’ in 16 of the 26 games. The Golden Eagles are 10-4-1 ATS on the road and the total has gone ‘over’ in nine of the 15 games.

Cincinnati’s 46-45 loss to South Florida as a two-point road underdog on Sunday dropped it to 20-9 SU on the year, but raised its record ATS to 11-12. The Bearcats are 13-4 SU at home, but just 3-9 ATS. The total has stayed ‘under’ in eight of the 12 games. They were hammered by Marquette 95-78 as six-point road underdogs the first time they played this season.

Thursday, Mar. 1 - Georgia Bulldogs vs. No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats (ESPN)

Georgia’s stunning 76-62 victory over No.11 Florida this past Saturday as a 7 ½-point home underdog was just its third SU victory in its last 10 games. The Bulldogs are 13-15 SU on the year and 11-13 ATS. They are 2-8 SU (5-5 ATS) on the road and the total has stayed ‘under’ in three of their last four games overall.

Kentucky’s current winning streak reached 20 with an 83-74 victory over Vanderbilt this past Saturday as an 11 ½-point home favorite. The Wildcats are now 28-1 SU, but a costly 10-17-1 ATS. They are a perfect 18-0 SU (4-12-1 ATS) at home and already beat the Bulldogs 57-44 as 12-point road favorites on Jan. 24.

Friday, Mar. 2 - Providence Friars vs. No. 18 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (ESPN3.com)

This past Saturday, Providence snapped a five-game losing streak with a 73-71 win over DePaul as a 1 ½-point road underdog.

They total has stayed ‘under’ in seven of the 10 games.

Saturday, Mar. 3 - No. 7 North Carolina Tar Heels vs. No. 4 Duke Blue Devils (ESPN)

The Tar Heels are 25-4 SU on the year and 15-13 ATS. They are 6-6 ATS on the road and the total has gone 7-5 in the 12 games.

Duke is also 12-2 SU in the ACC needs to get by Wake Forest on Tuesday night to ensure at least a share of the ACC title in light of an earlier 85-84 victory this season over North Carolina as a six-point road underdog. The Blue Devils are 25-4 SU (13-16 ATS) overall and while they are 13-2 SU at home they are just 5-10 ATS.

No. 3 Kansas visits Stillwater Monday

KANSAS JAYHAWKS (24-5)

at OKLAHOMA STATE COWBOYS (14-15)


Tip-Off: Monday, 9:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Kansas -9, Total: 136½

After a thrilling victory over rival Missouri on Saturday, No. 3 Kansas heads to Stillwater on Monday night to try to wrap up the Big 12 regular-season championship against Oklahoma State.

The Jayhawks have not enjoyed much success in Stillwater, going 2-5 ATS (3-4 SU) in seven trips there since 1998. When they last visited in February 2010, OSU shot 60.4% FG and made 10-of-19 threes in an 85-77 win. The Cowboys love being the home underdog, going 5-2 ATS in that position over the past two seasons. And although they have given up way too many points on the road (75.4 PPG), Okie State has been much stingier at home surrendering just 61.7 PPG on 37.7% FG. The Cowboys lost 81-66 in Lawrence two weeks ago, but they have thrived on payback, going 7-0 ATS when avenging a road loss versus an opponent this season. The pick here is OKLAHOMA STATE to keep the final margin tight, and possibly even pull off the SU upset.

This strong FoxSheets trend also backs the Cowboys:

OKLAHOMA STATE is 15-4 ATS (78.9%, +10.6 Units) in home games versus good ball handling teams - committing <=14 turnovers/game over the last 3 seasons. The average score was OKLAHOMA STATE 75.1, OPPONENT 66.8 - (Rating = 2*).

Kansas has won six in a row (3-3 ATS), erasing a 19-point, second-half deficit to topple then-No. 3 Missouri on Saturday, 87-86 in overtime. Thomas Robinson had 28 points and 12 rebounds against the Tigers while Tyshawn Taylor added 24 points and five assists. Senior Conner Teahan made all four of his three-point attempts, and is now shooting 37% from behind the arc this season. When the Jayhawks beat the Cowboys earlier this month, it was due to sheer domination of the paint. KU outrebounded OSU by a whopping 48-19 margin and its two big men each had double-doubles. Robinson had 24 points and 14 rebounds, while seven-footer Jeff Withey had 18 points, seven blocks and a career-high 20 rebounds. But the junior center was limited to just nine minutes of action in Saturday’s win after spraining his left ankle. His status is questionable for Monday night.

Oklahoma State suffered quite a blow in Wednesday’s 77-64 loss at Oklahoma when Le’Bryan Nash (13.3 PPG) fractured his left hand, possibly ending his freshman season. There’s a small chance he could play through the injury and suit up Monday night though. But the Cowboys were able to bounce back without Nash on Saturday, as they blew out the Texas A&M 60-42. Brian Williams had a game-high 17 points (7-of-11 FG), while leading scorer Keiton Page chipped in with 15. Page is averaging an absurd 28.0 PPG in his past three games, connecting on 16-of-34 three-point tries and making 26-of-28 free throws. Page scored 19 against the Jayhawks earlier this month, but shot just 5-of-16 from the floor. Markel Brown was the star against KU, scoring 21 points and playing all 40 minutes. Brown has been slumping since that performance though, averaging just 10.3 PPG on 40.6% FG.

Notre Dame, Georgetown meet Monday in D.C.

NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH (20-9, 12-4 Big East)

at GEORGETOWN HOYAS (21-6, 11-5 Big East)


Tip-Off: Monday, 7:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Georgetown -6½, Total: 118½

No. 20 Notre Dame and No. 9 Georgetown can each take a big step towards securing the coveted double-bye in the Big East Tournament when the two schools meet in Washington, D.C. on Monday night.

Notre Dame had its school-record nine-game conference winning streak snapped in a surprising 61-58 loss at St. John’s on Saturday—shooting just 12.9 percent (4-for-31) from three-point range. The Fighting Irish are no strangers to road upsets this season though, boasting an impressive 4-1 record (SU and ATS) as a road underdog of 6+ points in Big East play. The Hoyas routed Villanova on Saturday 67-46, bouncing back nicely from a blowout 73-55 loss at Seton Hall earlier in the week. Georgetown has dropped three straight (SU and ATS) to Notre Dame dating back to 2009, but the Hoyas have a definitive size advantage in this matchup. Can Georgetown cover this moderate spread here? For the answer, check out the College Basketball Weekday 6-Pack for picks covering all the big games in college basketball each weekday. The 6-Pack was a stellar 9-3 ATS (75%) last week.

The Irish have lived and died by the three all season, and it finally came back to bite them against the Red Storm on Saturday. Notre Dame was led by power forward Jack Cooley (18 points, 11 rebounds) and 6-foot-8 guard Scott Martin (18 points, six rebounds), but received no secondary help from team-leading scorers Jerian Grant (12.7 PPG) and Eric Atkins (12.7 PPG), posting just two and five points, respectively. This game represents the last true test of the regular season for Notre Dame, with conference bottom-feeder Providence scheduled to visit South Bend on Saturday. Like the Hoyas, the Irish enjoy slowing the pace of the game down by taking the shot clock down under 10 seconds and draining timely shots. Georgetown features a more explosive lineup in the frontcourt, but Cooley has scored in double figures in six straight games, including a double-double in five of them. This three-star FoxSheets trend also backs the Irish:

NOTRE DAME is 11-1 ATS (91.7%, +9.9 Units) in a road game where the total is 129.5 or less since 1997. The average score was NOTRE DAME 60.3, OPPONENT 55.8 - (Rating = 3*).

Projected to finish 10th in the conference this season, Georgetown has been one of the Big East’s biggest surprises. Senior guard Jason Clark (14.5 PPG) and junior forward Hollis Thompson (13.1 PPG, 5.5 RPG) lead the way for the Hoyas on offense. The key matchup in this game will be senior center Henry Sims (11.3 PPG, 5.5 RPG) going up against Cooley. Sims has the size and athleticism to severely limit Cooley on both ends of the floor. If Cooley gets into foul trouble, it will force Notre Dame to rely almost exclusively on jump shots, which is a tough task against John Thompson III’s vaunted defense, which has held opponents to 50 points or less in four of its past five home games. This four-star FoxSheets thinks the Hoyas can win and cover:

GEORGETOWN is 8-0 ATS (+8.0 Units) off a home win by 10 points or more this season. The average score was GEORGETOWN 68.9, OPPONENT 55.8 - (Rating = 4*).

Monday's betting tips: Devils on fire as underdogs

Who’s hot

NCAAB: Baylor is 13-5 ATS in its last 18 games against losing teams.

NCAAB: The under is 10-0-2 in Kansas’ last 12 road games.

NHL: The Devils are 7-0 in their last seven games as underdogs.

NHL: The Jets are 11-4 in their last 15 games as favorites.

Who’s not

NCAAB: Northern Arizona is 2-10-2 ATS in its last 14 games vs. Big Sky opponents.

NCAAB: Georgetown is 2-8 ATS in their last 10 Monday games.

NHL: The Kings are 3-8 in their last 11 games as an underdog of +110 to +150.

NHL: Colorado is 6-20 in its last 26 games against Anaheim.

Key stat

48.3 -- That’s Kansas’ shooting percentage, which ranks second in the Big 12. The Jayhawks on Monday visit Oklahoma State, which ranks last in the conference at 41.9 percent. The Cowboys also are last in 3-point shooting at 32.2 percent.

Injury not to be overlooked

Avalanche winger Milan Hejduk is questionable for Monday’s game against the Ducks after missing Saturday’s game against the Red Wings with a groin injury. He has 13 goals and 20 assists this season.

Game of the day

Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Georgetown Hoyas (-6.5, 118.5)

Notable quotable

"If it does go to free agency, the first place I'm coming is here. If I owe anything, it's that. My loyalty is here. This is where I've been. This is where my family's been, so obviously I'd love to stay here more than anywhere else. So first of all, they get a chance to do what they need to do to keep me here." -- Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton, whose contract expires after this season.

Notes and tips

Heavy showers postponed the Daytona 500 until noon Monday, but radar shows more storm cells moving toward the high-banked track, creating the possibility of a shortened race. This was the first time in the event's 54-year history that it was delayed a day. Check out our betting preview.

The Blues looked weary Saturday, playing their third game in four days, and they still have four more games on a road trip that continues Monday in Calgary. Coach Ken Hitchcock gave the team off Sunday. "This is just the start of tough travel for us," he said. "Any points we get on the road are really gratifying, and nobody is going to worry. We all know we've got to play better, but we'll play better if we just get some rest. I think we're going to play our best road game in Calgary because it's going to be almost like a full day and a half off." The Blues have won back-to-back shootouts in Winnipeg and Nashville.

LeBron James is an increasingly heavy favorite to capture the NBA’s MVP award. Pinnacle isn’t even offering odds on individuals besides LBJ. James is listed at -190 to win the award, with the field pegged at +167.

Miami Hurricanes center Reggie Johnson (10.5 ppg, 6.9 rpg) has been declared ineligible after an internal investigation revealed members of his family took impermissible travel benefits that the university said came from a member of former coach Frank Haith's staff. Miami has asked the NCAA for a quick decision on whether Johnson can be reinstated. The Hurricanes play at North Carolina State on Wednesday.

Armadillo: Monday's six-pack

Robert Allenby choked away the PGA tournament in Mexico Sunday, but its not like he needs the money. Here is what Allenby has earned over the last 11 years, just in this country, despite not winning any tournaments during that time..........keep in mind he's won 18 tourneys overseas, on addition to the four he's won in this country.

Year Earnings/Rank

2002 $2,115,771-20
2003 $2,176,452-24
2004 $1,513,537-44
2005 $1,184,458-63
2006 $1,503,581-56
2007 $2,219,538-27
2008 $3,606,700-11
2009 $1,890,946-42
2010 $2,974,997-18
2011 $1,452,567-60
2012 $488,746-30


***************


Armadillo: Monday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports sunday..........

13) If the PGA Tour makes a highlight film of the first two months of this season, they better title it "Choking Dogs" because thats what players in the lead have done on Sundays all this month. Sunday was Robert Allenby who gagged away a winner's paycheck, double-bogeying 18 when he had a two-stroke lead. Allenby had earned over $26M in his career, but he hasn't won a tournament on the PGA Tour in 11 years.

12) Allenby did an interview on Golf Channel before the playoff, which is unusual, then he signed autographs. How about hitting balls on the range? He seems like a great guy, but if you had him in a pool Sunday, chances are you'd like to smack him in the head right about now.

11) Robert Griffin III ran 4.41 40-yard dash at the Combine, Andrew Luck ran a 4.66, Kellen Moore ran a 4.94, none of which means a hill of beans when it comes to being an NFL quarterback. Anyone remember what a guy named Tom Brady ran in his 40-yard dash at the Combine? Try 5.23.

10) Craig Robinson is now 55-62 in four years at Oregon State, as Beavers have now lost five games in a row in another late-season swoon. If you're the AD at Oregon State, are you happy with Robinson, and if you're not, how do you go about firing the President's brother-in-law?

I mean, the Pac-12 stinks this year, and in a year Oregon State was hyped to be improved, they're 5-11 in league play. Thats not progress.

9) If you like the Red Sox, there's a lot of good spring training coverage on the NESN channel, with a two-hour show live on Sunday mornings. Think they have a show on at 6pm weeknights.

8) Speaking of Boston, any Red Sox fan who has one ill word to say about Terry Francona is an ungrateful nitwit who chooses to forget what a joke the team was before Francona took over and won two world titles.

Bobby Valentine will micro-manage and ban chicken in the clubhouse and let everyone know how smart he is, but he ain't won anything, except one NL title with the Mets; Francona owns two World Series rings.

7) NBA All-Star Game was 88-69 at the half, which means I didn't miss a damn thing by not watching. Just once, some billionaire should put up a huge sum of money and say winner takes all, and see how hard these guys play. Its insulting that they don't even try to play defense until the fourth quarter. Baseball is still the sport best-suited for All-Star play- its an individual sport.

6) Speaking of the NBA, how do they hold a 3-point shooting contest and not have Steve Novak in it? Kyle Korver? Steve Nash? How do they have a dunking contest without JaVale McGee?

5) I say this a lot, but its true; a 64-man 1-on-1 tournament over All-Star weekend would be very big. Two guys from each team, other four guys chosen from Internet vote. Who wouldn't watch this?

4) The 1949 Motor City Open had an 11-hole playoff, the longest playoff in PGA Tour history; Sunday's playoff at Mayakoba tied for 2nd all-time longest playoff, at eight holes.

3) If you like wagering on politics, Democrats are -$220 in the Presidential election in November; Republicans are +$200.

2) Greedy bastard update: At corner of Fuller/Central near my house, the price at the cruddy Mobil station is $3.95 a gallon; less than a mile away, at another cruddy Mobil station on corner of Wolf/Sand Creek, it is $4.05. Can't wait to see what the price goes to when the weather gets good.

1) Conference tournaments start this week; there are three in Las Vegas, one in Atlantic City, one in Hot Springs, AR, which apparently means it is fun to visit Hot Springs. Never been to Arkansas myself.
