Duke Huge Favorites vs Wake Forest

Duke has won 44 straight games at Cameron Indoor and 12 straight against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons - small wonder they are favored by such a huge margin Thursday in ACC betting action.

After jumping four points in the latest AP poll, the Blue Devils could be primed for a letdown here, especially with such a huge NCAA basketball point spread. They should win easily here, but will they push to blow out Wake Forest?

The Deacs are just 2-9 ATS overall in the past 11 meetings with Duke and its even worse at Cameron Indoor where Wake is 1-12 ATS in their past 13 visits dating to 1997.


Sharks home chalk vs Senators

The San Jose Sharks lead the NHL in shots on goal and they face an Ottawa Senators team in hockey action on Thursday that ranks second last in giving up shots.
Small wonder the NHL over under betting action is siding with the OVER 5.5 goals in this one, were the hot Sharks are favored at home againstt the even-hotter Senators.

These teams have only played five times in the past five seasons, but the Sharks have won all five. They have also won 8 of 10 at home, while the Sens are hot on the road, going 5-1 past 6.
