Sunday's Tip Sheet

February 16, 2013

The men's college basketball season enters the second half of February with many more questions than answers in trying to determine which teams are true contenders or hanging on as pretenders when it comes to winning a national title. The following is a brief handicapping guide for a few of the top matchups on Sunday's schedule that might help shed some additional light on the situation.

Game of the Day

No. 13 Ohio State Buckeyes vs. No. 20 Wisconsin Badgers (1 p.m. CBS)

Buckeyes bounced back from consecutive losses to Michigan and Indiana with a 69-59 victory over Northwestern this past Thursday as 17-point home favorites. They are now 18-6 straight-up on the year and 8-4 in Big Ten play. Ohio State has gone 1-3 against the spread in its last four games and 12-9-1 ATS overall. The total has gone OVER in its last three games after staying UNDER in its previous six outings.

Deshaun Thomas continues to play at a very high level with an average of 20.2 points and 6.2 rebounds while shooting 45.5 percent from the floor and 38.6 percent from three-point range. Lenzelle Smith Jr. has been effective as well with 10.3 points and 5.3 rebounds a game and hitting an impressive 40 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc. Overall, Ohio State is averaging 71.6 points a game and shooting 46 percent from the floor.

Wisconsin has been in and out of the Top 25 all season long but it may be on its way back out after dropping a 58-53 decision to Minnesota in overtime as a five-point road underdog this past Thursday. The loss leaves it 17-8 SU and 8-14-1 ATS this season. It was the Badgers' third-straight overtime game after coming out on the winning end against Iowa and Michigan in the previous two. They are 8-4 SU in conference play this season including a 58-49 loss to the Buckeyes on Jan.29 as 5 ½-point underdogs on the road.

To have any shot at avenging that loss, Wisconsin will once again rely on a defense that is holding opponents to an average of 56.5 points a game, which is ranked 11th in the nation. It also has a trio of players scoring in double figures led by Jared Berggren's 11.7 points a game. Ben Brust is a close second with 11.2 points and Ryan Evans is averaging 10.6 points a game.

The favorite in this matchup is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings and the total has stayed UNDER in nine of the last 12 games. Ohio State has won five of the last eight meetings SU including the nine-point victory earlier this season.

The Best of the Rest

No. 9 Arizona Wildcats vs. Utah Utes (3 p.m. Pac-12 Network)

Arizona is 20-4 SU this season but two of the losses have come in their last two games. A 71-58 setback to Colorado this past Thursday as a 1 ½-point road favorite dropped it to 2-5 ATS in its last seven games and to 10-12 ATS overall. The total stayed UNDER the 135.5-point line against the Buffalos after going OVER in four of its previous six outings. The Wildcats are averaging 73.8 points a game while shooting 44.7 percent from the field. Mark Lyons leads the team with 15.2 points and 3.1 assists a game.

The Utes took Arizona to wall on the road earlier this season in a tight 60-57 loss as prohibitive 19-point underdogs. Since then it has been a rough ride with just three victories in the Pac-12 verse eight additional losses. Utah is 11-13 SU overall but a profitable 14-7-1 ATS. It is 3-1 ATS in its last four games with the total going OVER in three of its last five games. Jordan Loveridge leads a trio of players averaging right around 12 points a game while also leading the team in rebounds with 6.8 a game.

No. 3 Miami Hurricanes vs. Clemson Tigers (6 p.m. ESPNU)

Miami is one of those teams trying to establish itself as a legitimate No.1 seed for the NCAA Tournament and is doing a good job so far at 20-3 SU overall and a perfect 11-0 SU in the ACC. It is 9-1 SU and 6-2-1 ATS on the road this season to complement a very profitable 15-4-1 record ATS overall. The total has gone OVER in five of its last seven games. The Hurricanes have five different players on the roster scoring at least nine points a game with Durand Scott and Shane Larkin leading the way with a combined 27.4 points a game.

The Tigers' 1-3 SU slide in their last four games has taken them below .500 on the year in ACC play at 5-7. They are now 13-11 SU overall and 12-8 ATS with the total going OVER in four of their last six games. Clemson is averaging 62.8 points and 34.3 rebounds a game. Devin Booker remains the team's biggest scoring threat with 12.3 points a game while shooting 54.8 percent from the floor, but overall the Tigers are hitting just 43.1 percent of their shots from the field and 32.6 percent from three-point range.

Armadillo: Sunday's six-pack

Six quick thoughts late on a Saturday night........

-- No one is going to feel sorry for Kentucky as they get beaten up on for the rest of this season; without the Noel kid, they're in serious trouble.

-- I'm not sure why Maryland left the ACC for the Big Dozen; seriously, not like the ACC is going to fold or anything.

-- CBS wouldn't have left its coverage of the LA Open at 6pm Saturday if Eldrick Woods was in the field.

-- I'd much rather watch a NASCAR race than the Slam Dunk contest.

-- Oregon State would be firing Craig Robinson next month, if he wasn't the President's brother-in-law; that buys him at least one more year.

-- If I had a vote for baseball's Hall of Fame, I'd vote for Jose Canseco to get in before I voted for Mark McGwire, but I wouldn't vote for either one of them. Just a reminder though; Canseco was the much better player.

Armadillo: Sunday's List of 13: Wrapping up a sports Saturday........

13) This has to be some kind of a record: Temple's underachieving Owls have played five games in a row decided by a single point (3-2).

According to Stats LLC, its the longest-such streak since at least 1997.

12) Maryland upset Duke despite some of the worst guard play I've seen in a major college game; Terps had 26 turnovers and still won. According to the great website kenpom.com, it was a 78 possession game, meaning that Terps turned ball over on 26 of 78 possessions, and scored 83 points on the other 52 possessions, or 1.596 points per possession. Wow.

11) Game of the day was in Tulsa, where Golden Hurricane beat Houston 101-92 in triple OT. Teams combined to go 13-53 from the arc, and took 85 foul shots- if you had the Cougars +4.5, you didn't enjoy the ending.

10) Washington State hit a game-tying 3-pointer in last 0:10 to tie Oregon, then they fouled the Ducks on purpose with 0:04 left, because their player didn't know the game was tied. Sixth straight loss resulted for Wazzu, as calls for coach Ken Bone's head are growing louder on the Palouse.

9) Ivy League doesn't have a conference tournament, so Harvard's 69-57 win over Princeton is bigger than it would be in other leagues, since it gives them a one-game lead for the automatic bid to the NCAAs, which goes to the regular season champ.

8) St Joe's-LaSalle are both in Philly, both in Atlantic 16, but they only play once a year; what genius made up this schedule? How does it make any sense for two teams in same city/league to not play twice a year?

7) Why does referee Jim Burr work a TV game every Saturday at noon? I'm told refs get paid more for TV games, but Mr Burr, who is from Albany area and has been a terrific official for years and years, always has a TV game in the first block of Saturday games. Was just wondering why.

6) Rough stretch for Iona's Gaels, who've lost four of their last five games, with three of the losses coming in overtime (the other loss was to Canisius by 3). Marist beat them after they tied the game with a 65-footer at the end of an overtime period.

5) Tennessee 88, Kentucky 58-- Going to be a long month for fans of the Wildcats, who have been beating up on SEC rivals for decades. Teams will be attacking the basket now that Noel isn't around to block shots, and no one is going to feel sorry for the Wildcats, who won the national title last year.

4) Going back to Temple's streak of one-point games, I'm totally convinced, without any hard evidence, that college basketball has had a lot more close games than usual this season. I look at Iowa; 7 of their 12 conference games have been decided by 4 or less points. Very strange season.

3) Brandt Snedeker/Phil Mickelson are both out of World Match Play tournament next week; Shane Lowry/Fredrik Jacobson take their places, and get to oppose Rory McIlroy/Eldrick Woods for their troubles.

Not fond of Mickelson saying he is opting not to play because his son is on vacation from school next week; pretty sure he could bring the kid with him, and they'd have a great time. Its a big event; Mickelson should be there.

2) Odd fact they said on CBS Saturday: Last time a guy won the LA Open in his first time playing the tournament was Pat Fitzsimons, in 1975.

1) Marlins' owner Jeffrey Loria must be a real gem; he told Jose Reyes' agent that Reyes should buy a home in Miami, two days before the Marlins dealt Reyes to Toronto. Wonder if Showtime wants to do another reality series with the Miami team this spring-- I'm guessing not.

Study group: Sunday’s Top 25 NCB betting notes
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Penn State at (5) Michigan (-23.5)

Losers of three of four, the Michigan Wolverines have an excellent opportunity to right the ship when they host last-place Penn State. The Nittany Lions came close to their first conference win Thursday, falling 74-72 to Iowa. Penn State has lost 14 consecutive road games in the Big Ten but at the very least, it might be getting closer, as three of the Lions' last four games have been decided by single digits. The Wolverines are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall.

(14) Ohio State at (19) Wisconsin (-2)

When Ohio State and Wisconsin played on Jan. 29, the Buckeyes used a second-half tear to pull out a win. But Sunday's rematch in Madison features a much-improved Badger squad that has gone 3-1 since that defeat, including a win over then-No. 3 Michigan. Both these teams, as well as Michigan, are two games behind Big Ten co-leaders Indiana and Michigan State. The loser of this game will have its conference championship hopes essentially dissolved, while the winner lives to see another day. The Badgers have won nine of their last 10 at home against the Buckeyes, with the lone Ohio State victory since 2000 coming last season.

(12) Louisville at South Florida (+13)

Louisville recovered from its epic 104-101 five-overtime loss at Notre Dame last weekend, defeating St. John’s 72-58 at home. The Cardinals are back on the road on Sunday, visiting the South Florida Bulls, who haven’t won in seven games. Louisville has outscored its opponents 975-767 in the second half this season and is holding foes to 39.6% scoring from the field. The Cardinals are 8-0 ATS in the last eight meetings.

(9) Arizona at Utah (+9)

When Arizona defeated Utah in early January, the Wildcats were in the midst of a run where just about everything was going their way, especially late in games. Arizona hopes to recapture some of the same magic to avoid its first three-game losing streak in nearly three years when they visit the Utes. Arizona improved to 14-0 with its Jan. 5 victory over Utah, capping a three-game stretch in which it won each game in the final seconds or overtime. The Wildcats are 6-4 since that contest and have dropped two straight following a four-game winning streak. Utah is 2-2 over its last four after losing seven of eight to begin conference play. The Utes have won both of their home games in February and are coming off a 60-55 victory over Arizona State. The road team is 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings.

(4) Miami-Florida at Clemson (+7)

Miami was unranked as recently as four weeks ago, but turned heads with a 27-point victory over then-No. 1 Duke on Jan. 23. Historically, the Hurricanes have struggled at Clemson, owning a 1-5 all-time record, but Miami has had no problems playing on the road this season. They’ve won nine straight away from home, which is tied for the second-most road wins in the nation heading into the weekend. Clemson is coming off a 56-53 win Thursday against Georgia Tech but the Tigers are 0-4 against ranked teams this season. The Hurricanes are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings.
