The Miami Heat will be back in action on Tuesday night as they play host to the San Antonio Spurs in an NBA betting matchup.

NCAAB Odds Preview: Hoyas, Demons

Georgetown has limped through their past three games with just one victory, but they will be heavily favored when they travel to play the DePaul Blue Demons in college basketball betting action on Tuesday night.

The Hoyas (14-3 SU, 8-4 ATS) have won six straight Big East matchups with DePaul, including three straight at Allstate Arena. DePaul (10-7 SU, 7-6 ATS) is a team that averages among the Big East leaders in three-point attempts, and if they are on things could be interesting.


Predators, Rangers on NHL lines

The New York Rangers will be looking to bounce back from a 4-1 loss to Montreal last time out when they host the Nashville Predators in NHL betting action on Tuesday night.

Nashville has won four straight and eight of their last 10 games to stay right on the heels of the top teams in the Western Conference. New York will be likely home favorites in this contest at 5Dimes, but the NHL betting lines could be more divided than expected.


NBA Lines: Lakers Host Mavericks

The Los Angeles Lakers will kick off their NBA betting schedule for the week on Monday with a home game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Mavericks swept the Lakers in the second round of last year's playoffs, and they're 6-4 both straight up and against the spread in the last 10 matchups between the two Western Conference teams.


Kansas Baylor Betting in Big 12

Unbeaten Baylor travels to Kansas on Monday, putting its 17-0 record on the line in the first of two big tests this week.

The Jayhawks are unbeaten in conference play and are very tough at home but still face a 5.5-point home underdog number at most sportsbooks.

Still the college basketball consensus betting has most Odds Shark visitors backing the Bears, as nearly 65% were on Baylor this afternoon.


Ravens vs Texans Playoff Preview

Houston has never beaten Baltimore in their short history, losing all five and covering the spread just once.

And they were quickly bet up to 9-point road underdogs here in an AFC divisional playoff game. The Texans won their Wild Card game against the Bengals while the 12-4 Ravens got a week to rest.

While the week off was not officially a bye week, bettors should be wary that Baltimore has been dominant against the spread with an extra week of rest - they are 9-1 ATS the past 10 seasons. The Ravens have also dominated at home, going 18-1 SU in their past 19.

The Texans have covered 4 straight as an underdog but the OVER (which opened at 38 at 5Dimes) has been the best bet when they are dogged, with a 9-2 trend favoring the OVER. A caution however to Baltimore backers - they have failed to cover the spread the past 5 times they were chalk of 9 points or more.

NBA Betting: Lakers vs. Clippers

Kobe Bryant and the Lakers will be trying to fend off the rival Clippers on Saturday night as they highlight the NBA betting slate.

The Lakers have managed to cover the spread just once in their past five games against the Clippers, going 3-2 straight up in those games. The OVER/UNDER went 3-2 in those last five meetings.


Jazz at Nuggets NBA Betting Matchup

The Denver Nuggets play host to the Utah Jazz on Sunday night in one of a limited number of NBA betting matchups on the schedule.

The Nuggets picked up an ATS win in each of their last three games against the Jazz, and in five of the past seven meetings. Totals bettors saw the OVER/UNDER go 6-3-1 in their past 10 matchups.
