NOTRE DAME FIGHTING IRISH (8-0) vs. KENTUCKY WILDCATS (5-2)
2010-12-08

SEC/Big East Invitational – Louisville, KY
Sportsbook.com Line: Kentucky -5 & 141
One team is undefeated, the other team is facing a losing streak. One team has five seniors in its starting lineup. The other team has one senior on its entire team. One team is rated 23rd in the nation and rising. The other team is rated 16th and dropping. Welcome to Notre Dame vs. Kentucky.
Undefeated in eight games, the Irish are off to their best start ever under head coach Mike Brey. Despite losing player of the year candidate Luke Harangody to the NBA, the Irish are showing that a team’s experience can help to close the gap when depth appears to be lacking. Notre Dame is being led by senior guard Ben Hansbrough who is leading them in points and assists (15.8 PPG, 4.0 APG), and forward Tim Abromaitis (15.6 PPG, 6.9 RPG) who continues to be one of the most improved players in the Big East from year to year. Last season, Abromaitis averaged 18.2 PPG in league play. Forward Carleton Scott has become a double-digit scorer and is leading the team in rebounds (7.8 RPG). Forward Tyrone Nash (12.5 PPG, 7.0 RPG) is third on the Irish in scoring, and just behind Scott in the rebounding category. With victories over Georgia, California and Wisconsin that helped them win the Old Spice Classic, Notre Dame has gone a long way to enhance its tournament resume (never too early to talk about that stuff kids!). A win over No. 16 Kentucky would take the conversation to a whole new level.
Kentucky is in the part of its December schedule where it will play key out-of-conference rivals in contests that are only moderately important … if you consider bragging rights and life or death “moderately” important. The ‘Cats are coming off of a 75-73 defeat at North Carolina in Chapel Hill. After Notre Dame, Kentucky has a contest against another cross-state rival, Indiana on Saturday. On New Year’s Eve, John Calipari’s kiddie ’Cats will complete the scheduling gauntlet with a game against Louisville, a surprising 6-0 to start the season. The Wildcats lost to UNC despite a 24-point effort from freshman guard Doron Lamb. Freshman Terrence Jones is leading Kentucky in both scoring and rebounding (19.0 PPG, 9.6 RPG), but struggled against the Tar Heels, tallying just nine points and six boards in 28 minutes of play before fouling out. Freshman Brandon Knight (17.0 PPG, 3.4 APG, 3.3 RPG) has been impressive as he continues to fully grasp Calipari’s system.
The last time that Notre Dame started off this well was in 1973-74 when it began the season 12-0. That year, the biggest achievement for the Irish came when they broke up a certain 88-game winning streak belonging to some team from out west. That will not happen this year, but it doesn’t mean that Mike Brey’s squad won’t have a chance to do something else memorable this year. Wednesday in Louisville they have a shot at another tournament-resume-boosting win. While Christmas is just 17 days away, March will be here before you know it, and the selection committee is always interested in who’s been naughty and who’s been nice.
Kentucky won four straight series meetings (SU and ATS) from 2001 to 2004, but Notre Dame was the most recent series winner, 77-67 in 2009. These two trends like Notre Dame to at least cover the spread on Wednesday night
NOTRE DAME is 18-5 ATS (+12.5 Units) versus good teams - outscoring their opponents by 4+ points/game over the last 2 seasons. The average score was NOTRE DAME 72.4, OPPONENT 66.7 - (Rating = 3*).
NOTRE DAME is 19-6 ATS (+12.4 Units) when playing against a team with a winning record over the last 2 seasons. The average score was NOTRE DAME 73.3, OPPONENT 66.3 - (Rating = 2*).

Elite 8 Matchup Preview: Kentucky Wildcats vs. West Virginia Mountaineers
2010-03-30

The No. 2 seed West Virginia Mountaineers will be facing the Kentucky Wildcats Saturday March 27, 2010 in Syracuse. www.sportsbook.com has the Kentucky Wildcats as the favorites by 4 points.


Both teams had very good games in their Sweet 16 matchups, each winning by a large margin, Kentucky 62 – Cornell 45 and West Virginia 69 – Washington 56.


The Cornell Big Red were able to limit the Kentucky Wildcats to just 62 points and 2 of 16 from three point land. The West Virginia Mountaineers, which are 11th in the country in overall defense, will probably be able to hold the Kentucky Wildcat’s offensive attack in check. And unlike the Cornell Big Red, the West Virginia Mountaineers have the physical strength to stay very close in the battle for rebounds and have a well rounded offensive attack that is far more diverse than hoping their three point shots fall in.


Unlike other top seeds, the Kentucky Wildcats have dominated their first three opponents of the NCAA tournament, winning by an average of over 20 or more points per game. Yes, this team is not perfect and they have their own issues, weak 3point shooting and way too many turnovers. But they are physically bigger than every opponent they play. The triple threat Wall, longer, Cousins, bigger, and Bledsoe, faster. The Kentucky Wildcats' defense is not given enough credit, most people just concentrate on their offense, but their defense makes up for some the noted weaknesses.


West Virginia Mountaineers Butler and Jones have played well in the tournament and present the Kentucky Wildcats with difficult match ups on defense.


If the West Virginia Mountaineer’s turnover problems show up again and Butler doesn’t come up big against the Kentucky Wildcats, then the Mountaineers are pretty much done, pack your bags and get ready to go home. However the West Virginia Mountaineers are also playing very good defense, not letting a team to score more than 60 points since the end of the regular season. The West Virginia Mountaineers are 13 - 0 this season when holding a team under 60 points. This is the fourth time a Bob Hugginscoached team has reached the Elite 8, with Bob Huggins going 1 and 2 in the previous three Elite 8 games.


Saturday’s game could well come down to which team gets the most boards. The West Virginia Mountaineers, which are 2nd in the nation grabbing offensive boards, murdered the Washington Huskies on rebounding and are 25 - 3 this year when out rebounding the other team. But with PatrickPatterson, DeMarcus Cousinsand Daniel Orton,to name a few, Kentucky is a very good rebounding team and will have the big boys on their side to give them the advantage in the frontcourt.


With the spread at 4 points and the over / under at 133.5, as listed on www.sportsbook.com, I believe the Kentucky Wildcats will be able to cover the spread, but this will be a nail biter.




CBB: Alphabet Tourney’s for Basket Bettors
2010-03-22

After four sensational days of NCAA college basketball, it’s time to return to reality. Still, the three other tournaments that are on the basketball landscape will all be in action, each with its own flavor and key matchup. We’ll take a betting look at a key contest from each tourney, on this not so Big Monday. While the basketball may pale in comparison, having an opportunity to wager and potentially win is certainly better than not playing. Follow all of the key wagering information on the LIVE ODDS and GAME MATCHUPS page of Sportsbook.com.

NIT televised action
The World Wide Leader has a great of time to fill and tonight spreads around four contests on ESPN and ESPNU. The most engaging is at 7:00 Eastern, featuring two teams that nearly were a part of the NCAA field. Virginia Tech was widely suspected as the last team out and smart coaches use that opportunity to motivate their players into proving they should have been invited to the bigger party by going out and winning the NIT. The Hokies quelled Quinnipiac 81-61 as 13-point favorites and is a 4.5-point favorite at Sportsbook.com. Malcolm Delaney and Dorenzo Hudson are a solid 1-2 punch in the backcourt and Virginia Tech is 13-4 ATS in March games over the last three seasons.
Connecticut closed the season like they wanted it to end with four straight losses and had to hang on against Northeastern in their first NIT experience, winning 59-57 as seven-point favorites. The Huskies’ players have not played with any sense of urgency a good portion of the season and have failed to cover their last five contests. UConn will be bounced unless Stanley Robinson and others play with passion, but that could be hard to find for club that is 1-7 ATS facing an opponent that wins 60 to 80 percent of their games on the year after 15 or more had been played in the year.

CBI’s Top Quarterfinal
The College of Charleston and Virginia Commonwealth have a good history of winning college basketball games and each had a quality regular season that ended disappointingly in their conference tournament. Each institution had highlight moments and both are seeking to add a trophy to their case winning this event.
The Cougars from Charleston are coached by Bobby Cremins and have a talented backcourt with Andrew Goudelock and Tony White. The majority Charleston’s losses came from opponents being able to pressure the duo into mistakes, since the front court players are average at best. The Cougars are 18-9 ATS this season and are 12.5-point underdogs. This is largely due to their passing interest in defense (teams shoot 46.9 percent against them at home), nevertheless Cremins club can hang around and is 12-5 ATS on the road.
Virginia Commonwealth also prefers the up-tempo style and has a pressing defense that causes a good number of miscues. In their win over George Washington, they had nine thefts and if the opposing team successfully breaks the press, the last line of defense is the intimidating Larry Sanders. The Rams hold teams to 39.9 percent shooting at the Siegel Center where they are 15-1 and 9-5 ATS.

CIT’s Top Tilt
The teams that play in the CIT tourney are generally a little further down the pecking order, but that doesn’t make it any less important to the competing schools. The Pacific at Northern Colorado contest should be solid conflict. The Tigers from Big West tied for the regular season crown and are impressive 10-7 (8-8 ATS) as visitors, which includes a 86-76 win at Loyola Marymount, shooting a blistering 60 percent from the field. Pacific is one-point underdog with total of 129 and they are 13-4 ATS away from home when the total is 120 to 129.5. Northern Colorado University is in Greeley, where the Bears have set a school record with 25 wins this season. Since Devon Beitzel went down with a broken foot late in the season, UNC has been searching for additional offense and they found it in the last game against Portland. The Bears shot over 72 percent in the final 20 minutes in 81-73 victory as one-point underdogs to the Pilots. Northern Colorado is 15-1 at the Butler-Hancock Sports Pavilion (5-8 ATS) and is 22-8 ATS in non-conference games since the 2007-08 campaign.
