Campbell: Bet DEN Like a Sharp in SB50

Anderson Hillman Broncos

So you like the Denver Broncos in this year’s Super Bowl. And why not? This game has gone to the dogs in recent seasons, while the team getting the points has covered 12 of the last 15 times—an astronomical winning edge of 80 percent by betting standards. 

This is also the biggest spread we’ve seen in a Super Bowl since 2009 when Pittsburgh was favored by seven over Arizona, a number that proved too steep for the Steelers in their 27-23 victory. 


Streaking Raps are the Hottest NBA Bet

Robin Lopez DeMar DeRozan

Have you paid attention to the Toronto Raptors as of late? If not, it’s about time you did. The Raps are the hottest team in the NBA on the floor and at the betting window, as the Dinos have won nine straight games while covering the spread in eight of those contests. Canada’s lone basketball club will have an opportunity to set a franchise record for wins tonight when they welcome the New York Knicks to the Air Canada Centre.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 0-4 SU in their last four games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Raptors' last seven games.
  • The Knicks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against their division.

The Dinos are hitting their stride at the right time but could be without All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry for the matchup. Lowry, who is officially listed as questionable, left the game late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards with a hand injury after getting tangled up with Marcin Gortat. Backup guard Cory Joseph is a solid replacement if Lowry does miss the game, however the Dinos will be hard pressed to replace Lowry’s 20.9 points, 6.4 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

The Knicks have had the edge in this series, however. New York has covered the spread in six of their last seven meetings with the Raptors. The OVER has also paid out in each of the previous four contests between the Eastern Conference clubs.

Bulls are Ice-Cold Against the Spread

Jimmy Butler D'Angelo Russell

Thursday night’s Chicago Bulls-Los Angeles Lakers tilt wouldn’t normally be classified as can’t-miss television, but the TNT crew will be at STAPLES Center to nationally televise the contest regardless. Neither side has been setting the world on fire recently, however bettors would be wise to be wary of the Bulls. Chicago is a measly 2-8 ATS in its last 10 games, making them the third worst spread bet in the Association (just ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Phoenix Suns).

Shark Bites
  • The Lakers are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Lakers are 0-7 SU in their last seven games.
  • The Bulls are 3-1 SU in their last four games after a loss.

Underdogs have a history of being a profitable play when the Bulls and Lakers collide, as favored teams are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 matchups between the clubs.

When the Lakers have played in Tinsel Town lately, UNDER bettors have been reaping the rewards. The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Lakers’ last 13 games at home.

Is Arizona's Home Streak in Jeopardy?

The Arizona Wildcats have won 49 consecutive games at home and have outscored opponents by an average of 22.5 points in those games. That number is impressive, but only two of those games have come against ranked opponents, one of which was an overtime victory against Gonzaga last season. Arizona will look to make is 50 straight wins at the McKale Center when they host the ranked Oregon Ducks Thursday.

Ryan Anderson has been the focal point of the Arizona offense this year as the senior is averaging 14.9 points and 10 rebounds per game. Anderson has not registered less than eight rebounds in one game since December 5 and has scored double-digit points in 15 of his past 16 games.

Oregon has been on fire recently as they are averaging 84.8 points while shooting 50.6 percent from the floor 44.3 percent from beyond the arc over the past four games. Dillon Brooks has taken over as he has averaged 20.3 points on 53.8 percent shooting in that span.

Controlling the glass will be important to Oregon if they want to halt Arizona’s home winning streak as the Wildcats have outrebounded conference opponents by an average of 14.5 in the last two against the Pac-12.

Maryland Excellent Following A Loss

The Maryland Terrapins are coming off their worst offensive performance of the season when they scored 65 points and went 22-of-57 from the floor in a loss to Michigan State. However, Maryland has shown they can bounce back as they have won their last 11 games following a SU loss. It will be a battle for Big Ten supremacy when the Terrapins host the Iowa Hawkeyes Thursday.

Iowa is arguably the best team in the nation right now as they are on a nine-game winning streak, which includes five victories over ranked opponents.  The Hawkeyes are 7-0 in Big Ten play this season with an average scoring margin of 12.2 points. Jarrod Uthoff’s play recently has him the conversation for the Wooden Award as the senior has averaged 21.7 points while shooting 53.3 percent from beyond the arc in the past six games.

Maryland has been near unstoppable at home as they have won 11 consecutive at Center College Park with an average scoring margin of +18.7 points. The Terrapins are one of the deadliest shooting teams in the nation as their 50.3 percent from the field is the fifth-best in the nation behind Diamond Stone who has hit nearly 60 percent this year.
