College Basketball Championship Futures

If there was any concern over Kentucky’s roster overhaul this offseason it was unfounded, as the Wildcats have come into the season rolling. Though they have had their moments of less-than-stellar play, a win over Duke has ensured that Kentucky will hold onto the top spot on the odds list to cut down the mesh in April.


College Football Championship Futures

A Big 12 beatdown of the Oklahoma State Cowboys has the Oklahoma Sooners climbing in the odds to win the FBS Championship. The Sooners topped the Cowboys 58-23 in a spot that will likely ensure them a spot in the playoffs, which caused their odds to jump from +750 to +250 at Bovada.

Oklahoma is still second in the odds behind Alabama who are listed at +110 after a tough Iron Bowl win this past week.


Conor McGregor Career UFC Odds History

Conor McGregor has taken the MMA world by storm since entering the UFC in April of 2013. His rare combination of unparalleled bravado and unique striking ability have already made him the most polarizing UFC fighter of all-time. What sets him apart from other trash talkers in the sport is his ability to back his words up in impressive fashion, as he’s recorded five TKO/KO finishes in his six UFC fights.

Going back to his time outside of the UFC, the 27-year-old Irishman has won 14 fights in a row. He finished 12 of those fights by TKO/KO, one by submission and one by decision.

North Carolina vs Clemson ACC Odds

Clemson Football

North Carolina and Clemson meet at the Bank of America Stadium this Saturday with the ACC championship on the line. There hasn’t been many upsets when these two teams clash, as the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the past four meetings between the Tigers and Tar Heels.

Sure, UNC lost to South Carolina and have beaten two FCS opponents, but the Tar Heels have been hard to ignore on the field. North Carolina ranks in the top 20 in the nation in rushing yards, points and points allowed. Sophomore running back Elijah Wood has been setting the world on-fire, as he has rushed for 536 yards and eight touchdowns in the past four games.

Clemson is 12-0 for the first time since they won the national championship in 1981. The Tigers have been one of the best all-around teams in the nation this season with the offense ranking 14th and their defense eighth. Clemson also has a legitimate Heisman-candidate in Deshaun Watson who has thrown for 27 touchdowns while adding nine with his feet.

Big 10 Championship Odds: Iowa vs MSU

Iowa Football

The Big Ten Championship, and a likely spot in the playoffs, are up for grabs when Michigan State and Iowa meet at Lucas Oil Stadium Saturday. Iowa has been a good bet in their games against the Spartans, with the Hawkeyes going 9-3 ATS in their past 12 against Michigan State.

Yes, Iowa is perfect. Yes, people are more sceptical of Iowa than any other team in the country. Hawkeyes opponents this season have a combined winning percentage of 46.2 percent with seven of their 12 opponents finishing under .500. If Iowa beats the Spartans they will be an undefeated team in a Power Five conference and it will be next to impossible to not include them in the playoffs.

The Spartans were not letting anyone question them with a 55-16 dismantling of Penn State last week. Connor Cook eliminated any doubts that could be raised as he completed 73 percent of his passes while throwing three touchdowns after returning from a shoulder injury.

NBA Betting News: Referee Assignments

Phoenix Suns Jeff Hornacek

Long before the Tim Donaghy scandal, handicapping games based on referees and umpires was commonplace. Handicappers continue to find trends and tendencies based on who is officiating, especially in the NBA where a ref who loves to call lots of fouls can impact the final score. Ditto one who likes to keep his whistle in his pocket.
