Road Team Cashing In Ivy League Clash

Columbia once sat atop the Ivy League, but a third loss within the league will almost certainly doom any chance of making March Madness this season. If playing for their season is not enough motivation to back the Lions, the road team is also 7-0 ATS in the past seven between Columbia and the Princeton Tigers.

Columbia has easily separated themselves from the bottom tier of the Ivy League, but losses against both Princeton and Yale has put them in limbo. However, Columbia brought Princeton into overtime in their previous contest this season on the back of Grant Mullins' only double-double of the season.

Princeton enters Friday riding a six-game winning streak, a span that has seen them outscore opponents by an average of 10.3 points per game. Star junior Henry Caruso had one of the worst performances of his career when these teams met last, as the forward went 1-for-10 from the field and scored just eight points in 38 minutes of play.

NFL Scouting Combine Betting Prop Odds

With the Super Bowl behind us and the coaching carousel stopped for another year, we turn our eyes toward the NFL Scouting Combine. The annual event that sees scouts poke, prod and grill prospective draft picks features plenty of areas to pad your bank account.

40-Yard Dash Odds

The 40-yard dash is the marquee event of the combine for most viewers. There is something oddly exciting about watching a cornerback run a fast time or a big lineman struggling to make it the 120 feet.

Thunder Failing to Cover vs Pelicans

Kevin Durant Anthony Davis

Wagering on the New Orleans Pelicans has been a risky decision all year long. The Pels are the second-worst bet in the NBA at 23-33 ATS due largely in part to their inconsistency on the road. New Orleans, who host the high-flying Oklahoma City Thunder Thursday evening, is much better at home, as the squad has won eight of their last 11 at the Smoothie King Center while averaging 108.7 points on 47.2 percent shooting during that span.

Shark Bites
  • The Pelicans are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games against teams with winning records.
  • The Thunder are 6-0 SU in their last six games against teams with losing records.
  • The Pelicans are 0-5 ATS in their last five games with a closing total of 221.5 or more.

Anthony Davis and company have also had the Thunder’s number when it comes to covering the spread. In the last seven meetings between the Western Conference foes, the Pels are 5-2 ATS. Books opened New Orleans as 5.5-point home underdogs for the affair.

Totals bettors will want to pay attention to the OVER in this one. The OVER has gone 7-1 in the Thunder’s previous eight away from home with the Pelicans going OVER in nine of their last 12 with one day off between games.

As good as Alvin Gentry’s club have been in Louisiana, don’t sleep on the Thunder’s success away from Oklahoma City. The Thunder have garnered victories in 13 of their last 17 road tilts since December 8, tying Cleveland for the best away winning percentage during that span.

Spurs Have Dominated Jazz This Year

The Utah Jazz are making a great playoff push thanks to some phenomenal play in front of their hometown fans. The Jazz, winners of seven in a row at Vivint Smart home Arena, will put that record on the line when they welcome the San Antonio Spurs to town in Thursday night NBA action. Utah has limited its opponents to 88.1 points and 40.8 percent shooting during the stretch.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games with no days off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 21 of the Spurs' last 29 games against the Northwest Division.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Spurs' last seven games against the Jazz.

Just how big would a win tonight be for the club? The Jazz have not won eight in a row in Salt Lake City since 2010. The Spurs are a team that’s given Quin Snyder’s bunch headaches this season, however, as San Antonio won the first two meetings between the squads by a combined 62 points while shooting 58.4 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from beyond the arc.

When these teams collide, OVER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. The OVER has paid out in five of the last seven meetings between the Jazz and Spurs. The total has also gone OVER in seven of the Jazz’s past eight after losing the previous game in a matchup.

At the time of writing the total for the game was off the board, but oddsmakers opened the Jazz as 3-point home dogs. Utah backers will be pleased to know the team is 3-1 SU and ATS in their last four when facing teams with winning records.

Seton Hall Cashing Against Big East

Despite a rocky start to their conference schedule, the Seton Hall Pirates have been an amazing bet within the Big East. Seton Hall is 8-2 ATS in their past 10 outings against the conference, including a SU and ATS win in their first meeting with the Providence Friars this season. Seton Hall and Providence will meet for the second time this season Thursday with the two teams trending in different directions.

Providence, who was once almost guaranteed to be in the tournament, has hit the skids lately and unless they right the ship they could be on the outside looking in. The Friars have just two wins in their past seven games with bad losses to DePaul and Marquette. Providence has been unable to buy a bucket as they have shot 37.5 percent from the floor while only twice eclipsing the 40 percent mark in their past seven games.

Seton Hall’s stifling defense has held their opponents to just 64.9 points in their past seven, with the Pirates winning six of those games. Sophomore Isaiah Whitehead has been the top dog offensively for Seton Hall with the guard averaging 19.4 points, 5.7 assists and 3.7 rebounds through the past seven games.

FSU Unable To Cover During Skid

Florida State in the midst of their worst losing streak since 2007 as the Seminoles enter Thursday night on a four-game losing streak. Not only has FSU been losing on the court, they have also failed to cover in each of those four affairs. The ‘Noles will need to step up their play with they want to avoid their fifth consecutive loss as they visit the Duke Blue Devils Thursday.

If Duke wants to bounce back from their loss against Louisville in their last game out they will need to protect the ball better. The Blue Devils committed a season-high 18 turnovers in that game with freshman star Brandon Ingram accounting for 10 of those.

During their four game losing streak, the Seminoles have allowed opponents to average 80.3 points on 51.7 percent shooting. Florida State’s future still looks bright however, with the freshman guard combo of Malik Beasley and Dwayne Bacon has averaged a combined 31.9 points and 10.7 rebounds per game this season.

Rangers Sizzling in Games After a Loss

Henrik Lundqvist New York Rangers NHL

The New York Rangers have done a great job of hanging around the No. 2 spot in the Metropolitan Division and preventing back-to-back losses has had a big hand in that. The Blueshirts are in that spot once again when they tangle with the St. Louis Blues at the Scottrade Center Thursday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Rangers are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games against the Blues.
  • The Blues are 3-0 SU in their last three games off a loss.
  • The Rangers are 6-14 SU in their last 20 road games.

The Rangers are presently +105 road dogs in moneyline markets at online shop Bovada while the Blues are -135. The total is tabbed at 5 goals with OVER and UNDER both priced at -115.

The Rangers have gone 10-0 SU in their last 10 games coming off a loss in their previous effort. While they are still miles back of the Washington Capitals in the Metro, that ability to rebound has kept the team in second and helped them fend off the pesky New York Islanders. New York lost 5-2 to the New Jersey Devils in its last contest Tuesday and will look to prevent its first two-game losing skid since mid December.
