TNF Betting Preview: Buccaneers at Rams

Tampa Bay NFL

Thanks to a 24-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 14, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came back down to life after an impressive stretch that saw them win three of their previous four. Next up for Jameis Winston and company is a Thursday Night Football matchup with the St. Louis Rams in Missouri.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The visiting team is 3-8 SU in its last 11 games in this matchup.</li>
<li>The Buccaneers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Buccaneers' last 11 games on the road.</li>

St. Louis is simply going through the motions at this point in a lost season, but they have had the edge against the Bucs in recent meetings. The Rams have covered the closing spread in their last four clashes with Tampa Bay. 

The Rams have been one of the top UNDER teams in the NFL this season due largely due to an inefficient offense. The OVER/UNDER has gone 3-10 in the Rams’ 2015 campaign. 

With the eyes of the nation squarely upon them, St. Louis has been a terrible bet when appearing on Thursday Night Football. The Rams are 1-6 ATS in their prior seven Thursday affairs.

Primetime Showdown: Cavs vs OKC

LeBron James Kevin Durant

In one of the best matchups that the NBA can make, the suddenly surging Oklahoma City Thunder visit Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight at Quicken Loans Arena. After being a poor bet for most of the season, the Thunder have gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games. The Cavs, meanwhile, have only been able to cover three times in their last 10 home games.

OKC has now won six games in a row SU, with an average winning margin of 13.2 points in those games. Keeping this streak alive will be a difficult task, as Cleveland is an almost perfect 10-1 SU at home this season.

This will be the second game of a back-to-back for the Thunder after beating the Trail Blazers 106-90 at home last night. The total has gone UNDER six of their last seven games when playing on no day’s rest.

Tonight’s game opened with a total of 205. The teams have combined to go UNDER in 16 of their last 19 games and both of their matchups last season went UNDER the total. The teams split their two games last season.

LeBron James has been a stat machine vs OKC in 21 career games against them, averaging 29.6 points, 6.7 assists, 6.3 rebounds, and two steals.

NBA Odds: Raptors vs Hornets

Charlotte Hornets Kemba Walker

In the wake of a forgettable loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday, the Toronto Raptors will need to wipe the slate clean and start fresh Thursday when they take on the Hornets in Charlotte. Despite the loss, the Raps have played well even without injured key players Jonas Valanciunas and DeMarre Carroll, winning eight of 12 games since the big Lithuanian went down with a hand injury.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings with the Hornets in Charlotte.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the Raptors last 5 overall.
  • The Hornets are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 vs. the Atlantic Division.

The Hornets are no slouch, however. Playing in its second game of a back to back stint, Charlotte features four guards averaging in double figures scoring led by Nicolas Batum and Kemba Walker. The Hornets have dropped two straight to the Magic and Celtics after claiming four in a row.

When the Raps and Hornets get together at Time Warner Cable Arena, tight games tend to follow. Of the last seven meetings between the clubs in North Carolina, six have been decided by six points or less.

Canadiens Dominating Kings In Montreal

PK Subban

A visit from the Los Angeles Kings could be exactly what the doctor ordered for the slumping Montreal Canadiens Thursday. The Habs , who have just two wins in their past eight games, are 13-2 in their last 15 games when the Kings come to the Bell Centre.

The Canadiens’ offense has been struggling since losing top-line winger Brendan Gallagher as the team has averaged 2.5 goals without him in the lineup compared to 3.5 with him on the ice.  Montreal is also making a change on the backend as Andrei Markov has been replaced in the top defensive pairing with P.K. Subban for Nathan Beaulieu.

After starting the season with wins in five of their first six road games, the Kings have gone 3-2-1 in their last six games travelling. LA has been great at getting at least one point in their games as they have notched one point in nine of their past 10 games (7-1-2).

NCAAB Betting: Hampton vs SMU

SMU Mustangs Jordan Tolbert

The undefeated Southern Methodist University Mustangs have been rolling in the early stages of the college basketball season, entering Thursday’s home tilt against the Hampton Pirates with a spotless 8-0 SU record. The Mustangs are historically extremely tough to beat at Moody Coliseum, AKA one of the toughest places to play in the nation, and are 6-0 in front of their hometown fans on the year. SMU is 40-3 at home since the start of the 2013-14 campaign.

Shark Bites
  • The Pirates are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Mustangs' last 5 games.
  • The Pirates are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games following a straight up win.

Playing without two of its starters, SMU ran over Nicholls State 86-42 while shooting at least 50 percent from the floor for the sixth time this season and holding the Colonels to a paltry 25.4 percent shooting.

The Pirates are the lesser known team, but perhaps it’s time bettors got acquainted with the squad. Hampton has covered the closing spread in 11 of its last 12 games ahead of the contest.

NHL: Scorching Hot Flames Visit Stars

The Calgary Flames have been largely irrelevant for the past several season, with last years playoff run being the exception, but the team is one of the hottest in the NHL right now. The Flames are on a six-game winning streak and have averaged four goals per game in that span. If Calgary wants to be taken seriously though, they will need to put on a good showing against the No.1 team in the league Thursday when they visit the Dallas Stars.

Johnny Gaudreau continues to look like one of the best young goal-scorers in the NHL as the diminutive winger has tallied seven goals and four assists while posting a plus-nine rating during the Flames six-game streak. Johnny Hockey currently sits seventh in the NHL in points and has one goal against the Stars already this season.

The Stars will be looking to avenge a 4-3 shootout loss to the Flames in Calgary in their first meeting of the season. Tyler Seguin was held scoreless in that affair, but has since notched eight points in the six games.

New Mexico a Strong ATS Bet vs Arizona

New Mexico Football NCAA

New Mexico gets the luxury of playing in the New Mexico Bowl when they take on the Arizona Wildcats in Albuquerque on December 19th. The Lobos have enjoyed success against the Wildcats, with New Mexico covering in the past three meetings between the two teams.

New Mexico has clinched their first winning season since 2007 thanks to a revived offense that is heavily based on the rushing attack. The Lobos are averaging 246.6 yards per game, which is good for ninth in the nation, with three different players rushing for 600-plus yards and six or more touchdowns.

Arizona was supposed to be better than .500 this season, but injures decimated the team from the early goings of the season. The Wildcats limped to the finish line of the regular season with a 1-4 record in their past five with an average scoring margin of minus 13 points.

NFL Week 15 OddsShark Computer Picks

I don’t think many people expected a 51-point day from the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but it was exactly what we got. The Jags put up the most points in their team’s not-so-illustrious existence thanks to a performance that saw the offense, defense and special teams all score. The OddsShark Super Computer is a supporter of the Jags as it has tabbed Jacksonville to pound the Atlanta Falcons 31.1-16.6.
