NBA Odds: Thunder vs. Jazz

Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder will be in Utah on Friday night for an NBA betting matchup against the Jazz.

The Thunder are 6-4 straight up and 5-4-1 against the spread in their last 10 games against Utah, with the OVER paying out for totals bettors in five of the past six meetings between the clubs.


NHL Betting: Flyers vs. Rangers

Every game is important in the playoff race now, and Saturday’s matinee between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers is no different as the top two teams in the Atlantic Division face off in NHL betting action.

Philadelphia has struggled of late, but shouldn’t have any trouble getting up for this betting matchup against their rival.


Gonzaga vs St Marys: WCC Betting Pick

The Gonzaga Bulldogs host St. Mary's on Thursday with the West Coast Conference at stake at McCarthey Athletic Center.

No. 16 Gaels can move closer to earning that title as they shoot for their 13th straight victory Thursday night in a rematch with the Bulldogs, who blew them out in January.

Of note, the road team has won 5 of the past 7 meetings of these WCC foes and the point spread favors Gonzaga by three at most sportsbooks.


NBA Odds Preview: Lakers vs. Celtics

Classic rivals will hit the hardwood in Boston on Thursday night this week as the Los Angeles Lakers pay a visit to the Celtics.

The Lakers and Celtics will be battling for the first time this season, with the teams having split their last 10 matchups 5-5. Boston has covered the spread in six of their last 10 meetings.


NHL Betting: Leafs vs. Flyers

Toronto is playing some great hockey of late, but the Maple Leafs will still be a road underdog when they take on the Flyers in Philadelphia in NHL betting action on Thursday night.

The Flyers won the only meeting between the teams so far this season, but that was before they lost some key components to their roster. Toronto has won three of their last four, while the Flyers have lost three straight and four of their last five.


UNC Duke Clash in ACC

The visiting Duke Blue Devils have a 6.5-point spread cushion as they travel up the road to face hated rival North Carolina but the total could be the best bet if recent history repeats itself.

The past six meetings of these North Carolina rivals have all played UNDER the total, which sat around 156.5 at press time Wednesday.

The No. 10-ranked Blue Devils look to avoid consecutive losses for the first time in three years. They face a hot team in the fifth-ranked Tar Heels, who have won five in a row.


Baylor Kansas Betting Preview

Baylor gets a shot at revenge just three weeks after Kansas ended their perfect start in this battle of Top 10 ranked schools.

The No. 6 Bears couldn’t stop Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson last time, as they combined for 55 points in the Jayhawks's rout of Baylor.

Today the Jayhawks are small road underdogs in Waco and have lost two of their past three games. Kansas has won and covered 5 in a row at Baylor, including many routs.


Nuggets Host Mavs: NBA Betting

Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks will be on the road in Denver on Wednesday for an NBA betting matchup against the Nuggets.

Denver got past Dallas 115-93 as a road underdog when those teams last met in December, and the Mavericks are just 4-6 SU and 4-5-1 ATS in the 10 most recent contests between the Western clubs.


Kentucky favored in Top 10 Battle

Kentucky is back as the No. 1 team in the country and they host No. 8 Florida Gators in SEC wagering action Tuesday.

Betting against John Calipari's Wildcats means you foresee the end of a 15-game winning streak this season and the end of a streak of 48 victories in a row at home.

Of course visiting Florida only needs to cover the point spread, which had settled around -9 Tuesday morning. But can they contain an explosive Kentucky team that boasts five players in double-digit scoring and freshman stud Anthony Davis?


Purdue big dogs at Ohio State

Jared Sullinger looks for another dominant performance in Big Ten action Tuesday at Value City Arena as the host Ohio State Buckeyes take on the Purdue Boilermakers.

The No. 3-ranked Buckeyes handled Wisconsin on the weekend with Sullinger dominating the paint. But Purdue has won 4 of 6 meetings with Ohio State, something underdog bettors will find interesting with such a large spread today.
