Pacers a Fantastic Bet With Extra Rest

Indiana Pacers George Hill

It's taken longer than it should have, but the Los Angeles Clippers appear to have finally found their footing in the 2015-16 NBA campaign. The Clips have won three-straight and will be seeking to make it four in a row Wednesday when they play host to Paul George and the surprising Indiana Pacers.

Shark Bites
  • The Pacers are 9-1 SU and 10-0 ATS in their last 10 games with two days off.
  • The visiting team is 5-1 ATS in its last six games in this matchup.
  • The Pacers are 5-0 ATS in their last five games as road underdogs.

Indiana has been extremely impressive this season, winning eight of their last nine heading into the contest to sit at 11-5 SU. George, who missed nearly all of last season due to a leg injury, is putting the team on his back and then some this year. The Fresno State product is averaging 27.2 points and 8.1 rebounds per game while shooting a blitzing .459 from the field through 16 games.

Totals bettors take note: the Clippers have been one of the hottest UNDER teams in the NBA recently due to their penchant for participating in low-scoring affairs. The UNDER has paid out in six out of Los Angeles’s last seven games.

Road Team Dominating Battle of NY

The Battle Of New York will see their first action at the Barclays Center when the New York Islanders host the New York Rangers Wednesday. Maybe a new rink will mean a different result for the home team, as the road team is 11-2 in the past 13 meetings between the two teams.

The Rangers have lost three of their past four and find themselves losing a lot of ground to the Montreal Canadiens atop the Eastern Conference. Oddly, goalie Henrik Lundqvist has been struggling in his past three starts as he has allowed 12 goals with an .891 save percentage.

The Islanders are heating up with a 4-0-1 record in their past five games, thanks to secondary scoring from Ryan Strome. Since being recalled from the AHL, Strome has two goals and two assists in three games.

NFL Week 13 Opening Odds Analysis

And then there was one - and it's not the New England Patriots. Even Nostradamus would have been hard-pressed to accurately predict that the Carolina Panthers would be the lone unbeaten NFL team after 12 weeks.

Next up for the 11-0 Panthers is a road date against NFC South Division rival New Orleans on Sunday. The Panthers opened as seven-point favorites. The last time Carolina was a road favorite against the Saints was 2008 when John Fox was the Panthers coach.

SEC Championship Has Very Low Total

Two of the best defenses in the nation clash with the SEC Championship hanging in the balance when the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Florida Gators meet at the Georgia Dome Saturday. With two stellar defenses, it shouldn't come as a shock that the total is incredibly low, but that does beg the question; do such low totals manage to stay UNDER?

So far this season in college football there have been 18 games that have closed with a total of 39.5 or lower. The UNDER has hit in 12 of those 18 games (66.7 percent) with the average combined score tallying 32.6 points.

Asian Handicap Explained

English

Asian Handicapping essentially offers a different style of betting where the underdog of the matchup is given an advantage – an early lead, before the game has even begun. In a regular wager, the chances of winning are one in three or 33%, but in Asian Handicapping, the draw is eliminated which allows a 50% chance of winning.

Bettors select either the favoured team to overcome a handicap, or oppose the favourite with the handicap (expressed in goals). Developed in Asia, it offers a better chance to the bettor and is considered less risky than regular sports betting.

Ravens Have Had Dolphins' Number

Baltimore Ravens Kamar Allen

In the battle between the Baltimore Ravens and the Miami Dolphins, it’s the Ravens who have held a significant upper hand. Baltimore has won and covered in each of their last five meetings with the ‘Fins and will get yet another crack at them Sunday when the two sides square off in the Sunshine State. Miami opened as 4.5-point favorites at most sportsbooks, which won’t inspire much confidence in Dolphins backers. The favored team is 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings between the clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Ravens are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last seven games on the road in December.
  • The Ravens are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the AFC East division.
  • The Dolphins are 0-7 ATS in their last seven games in December.

Baltimore is coming off a miracle victory over the Cleveland Browns in the Week 12 edition of Monday Night Football which saw them block a last-second field goal and return it for a touchdown, escaping Ohio with a 33-27 win while covering the spread in the process.

Miami hasn’t been setting the world on fire on the field and for bettors, going 4-7 SU and ATS this season. They have been marginally better at home, however, posting a 3-4 ATS record at Sun Life Stadium.
