Re: Betting News and Notes -Dec 9th

Sunday's Tip Sheet
VegasInsider.com

Bettors have a pair of televised games to place wagers on Sunday in college hoops. Let’s examine both of those tilts.

**George Washington at Virginia Tech**

--Las Vegas Sports Consultants opened Virginia Tech (4-3 straight up, 3-3 against the spread) as a six-point favorite with a total of 136.

--This is a rebuilding year for the Hokies, who lost three key players – namely Zabian Dowdell, who averaged a team-high 17.4 points per game -- from last season’s 22-12 squad that finished third in the ACC. They are unbeaten in four home games, but have lost to Butler and Gonzaga on neutral courts and at Penn St.

--George Washington (3-3 SU, 0-1-1 ATS) has lost to Auburn, UCLA and Maryland-Baltimore so far this season. The Colonials snapped a three-game losing streak by trashing Baltimore-Eastern Shore 78-39 in a non-lined matchup.

--Va. Tech is off a 67-39 win over UNC-Greensboro as an eight-point home favorite. Jeff Allen paced the Hokies with 16 points and 12 rebounds. Allen, a heralded freshman signee, is the team’s second-leading scorer (13.4 PPG) and leading rebounder (8.0 RPG).

--Dating back to 1999, Va. Tech has covered the spread in four of the last five head-to-head meetings. However, GW has won back-to-back meetings, including last year’s 63-62 win as a 3 ½-point home underdog.

--FSN will have the telecast at 5:30 p.m. Eastern.

**Boston College at Maryland**

--Maryland (6-3 SU, 1-6 ATS) has been a serious money burner this season with its lone spread cover coming in a 69-61 home win over Illinois as a one-point favorite.

--The Terrapins are off an 89-65 win Thursday over Morgan St. in a non-lined affair. Eric Hayes scored a team-high 19 points and dished out seven assists. Greivis Vasquez added 17 points, 11 assists and six rebounds.

--Boston College (6-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) bounced back from its first defeat – a 98-89 loss to Providence last Saturday in OT – to beat Saint Louis 61-39 Tuesday as a nine-point home favorite. Freshman Corey Raji paced the Eagles with 13 points, draining 4-of-5 shots from the floor and all five of his attempts from the charity stripe.

--BC is led by junior guard Tyrese Rice, who is averaging a team-high 21.2 points and 6.2 assists per game.

--When these teams met last season, BC collected a 73-62 win as a 1 ½-point home ‘chalk.’

--Maryland junior forward Dave Neal (wrist) has been out since Nov. 12. He’s almost ready to return and is listed as “questionable” in this spot.

--The ‘over’ is 3-2 in BC’s five games with a total.

--Dating back to last year, the ‘under’ is 7-1 in Maryland’s last eight home games.

--LVSC opened Maryland as a six-point ‘chalk’ with a total of 144.

--Tip-off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Eastern on FSN.

Jamaal Tinsley unhurt after shots were fired
ASSOCIATED PRESS

INDIANAPOLIS -- Indiana Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley and several companions were targeted in a shooting Sunday morning that wounded one person outside a downtown hotel.

Tinsley was not injured.

Joey Qatato, identified as the team's equipment manager on the Pacers' Web site, was struck in both elbows as he sat with Tinsley in the player's Rolls Royce. The 48-year-old Qatato was taken to Methodist Hospital, where he was treated and released.

Police said the shooting involved an assault rifle and followed a confrontation when Tinsley and his companions were leaving the ''Cloud 9'' club.

''We're grateful that it happened at that time of day,'' Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department Sgt. Paul Thompson said. ''The streets are pretty bare that time of the morning.

''If it happened during rush hour, God knows what would have happened.''

Tinsley's group had arrived at the club in three cars owned by the player - a Mercedes, a Rolls Royce and a Dodge Charger. Thompson said a group of people gathered around the Rolls Royce and gave Tinsley a hard time about his cars and his earnings.

After Tinsley and friends left, they realized they were being followed by a gray Chrysler and a dark pickup truck, Thompson said.

Instead of going home, Tinsley's group pulled into the Conrad Hotel, a downtown luxury hotel, where the shooting began. Tinsley's Rolls Royce was struck by several bullets, and five bullet holes were found in the Charger, police said.

No one was injured in the Charger.

Two vehicles in Tinsley's group then followed the shooters in a chase, and Tinsley's brother, James, returned fire at the attackers, police said.

It was unknown whether anyone was hit, and Jamaal Tinsley was not involved in the chase, Thompson said.

The Pacers travel to Cleveland Tuesday. Odds for the game have not yet been released.

Sunday's shooting is the latest in a string of violent crimes targeting professional athletes.

Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor died Nov. 27, a day after he was shot in the bedroom of his Miami home in what police have said was a botched burglary.

Over the summer, NBA players Eddy Curry and Antoine Walker were robbed just weeks apart in their Chicago-area homes. In September, two men broke into the home of Houston Texans cornerback Dunta Robinson, tying up the victim and stealing jewelry.

Authorities were called to the downtown Indianapolis hotel about 3:40 a.m. And Tinsley appeared to be the only Pacer in the group, which included his brother and several friends, Thompson said.

Police still were investigating and looking for the two vehicles. They have made no additional arrests, Thompson said.

The Indiana Pacers did not immediately return phone calls seeking comment. Tinsley's agent, Raymond Brothers, could not be reached for comment.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank said: ''We are gathering details but before we know more, it's inappropriate for us to comment.''

Police arrested one person in Tinsley's group, Antoine Toon, on an outstanding warrant out of Georgia.

Tinsley and another Pacers player, Marquis Daniels, both face charges stemming from a bar fight almost a year ago.

A grand jury indicted Tinsley on a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation in connection with a Feb. 6 fight at the 8 Seconds Saloon. Daniels is charged with battery and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

Their trial is scheduled to start Jan. 14.

According to a police report, the manager of the bar said Tinsley threatened to kill him during the fight. The confrontation with the players followed another fight involving a person who employees thought was trying to steal coats from the coat check area, police said.
