Duke has had the Edge Over UNC Recently

North Carolina vs Duke

One of the greatest rivalries in sports takes center stage tonight when North Carolina and Duke square off at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill. The Tar Heels opened as 6.5-point favorites, but it’s the visitor that’s had the edge in this matchup, as the travelling team is 7-2 ATS in the last nine games between the two squads.

North Carolina is an absolute beast at home, with 17 straight wins on their home court this season, but are a below average bet in Chapel Hill, going just 7-8-2 ATS at home. They’re also on a bit of a slide at the betting window, posting a 2-6 ATS record over their last eight games.

Duke has gotten the better of their rival lately, winning five of the last six games over North Carolina, and covering the spread in four of their last five trips to UNC. This will be just the third time this season that Duke enters a game as an underdog — a situation they haven’t responded well to on the season with an 0-2 SU and ATS record.

The total for this one opened at 162.5 and both teams are trending UNDER. The Tar Heels have gone UNDER in seven of their last eight, and Duke has gone UNDER in four of their last five games. However, the teams have gone OVER in three straight matchups against each other.

There is a new favorite atop the college basketball futures board as the North Carolina Tar Heels sit as +800 favorites taking over the title from the Oklahoma Sooners.

While the Sooners lost to the Kansas Jayhawks Saturday, UNC thumped Pitt 85-64 over the weekend but their biggest contest of the season is on deck as the Duke Blue Devils come to town Wednesday evening.


Baylor is a Team to Stay Away From

The Baylor Bears will try to put an end to a major slide that’s seen them go 1-6-1 ATS over their last eight games when the host the Iowa State Cyclones tonight. Iowa State, meanwhile, has put together a respectable 6-3 ATS record over the last nine, and are also 6-3 ATS on the road this season.

Baylor has also failed to cover in five straight home games, but they’re likely happy to see an Iowa State team that they’ve beat in eight of the last nine games at home. Baylor opened as 3.5-point favorites for the game, which is also a situation they’ve struggled in as they’re an awful 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games as favorites.

Iowa State was the host the last time the teams met on January 9 — a 94-89 Bears win as 7-point underdogs. The game also went OVER, marking three straight contests to go OVER the total between the teams and eight of 10 overall.

Texas is a Hot Bet vs West Virginia

WVU vs Texas

Two top 25 teams highlight Tuesday night’s college hoops schedule when the Texas Longhorns host the West Virginia Mountaineers, and both teams are on a role at the betting window. Texas has covered the spread in seven of their last eight games, while West Virginia is 8-3 ATS over their last 11 games.

The Longhorns got the better of the Mountaineers when the teams last met on January 20, winning 56-49 as 12-point underdogs. West Virginia dominated the battle on the glass, recording 49 rebounds to Texas’ 33, but were ultimately done in by poor 3-point shooting (3 for 21) and abysmal free throw shooting (8 for 23). The win added to trend that’s seen Texas cover six out of their last seven games over WVU, and win seven out of 10 against them straight up.

Texas has been hot at home, winning six straight games SU and covering the spread in three straight on their home court. They are, however, coming off of two straight losses on the road to Oklahoma and Iowa State. They opened as 2.5-point favorites for tonight’s game, but despite their mini run at home, and are a lackluster 5-6 as home favorites this season.  

Texas has also been a hot UNDER play at home recently, going UNDER in six of their last eight home games. Tonight’s game opened with a total of 137.5, a total these teams haven’t surpassed in their last four games against each other.

Inconsistent Kings Visit Caps Tuesday

Los Angeles Kings Alex Ovechkin Washington Capitals

Don’t look now, but some inconsistent play over the past month has the Los Angeles Kings’ lead in the Pacific Division shrinking on a daily basis. The prospect of extending that lead will get tough as the club continues its road trip at the Washington Capitals Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Kings are 0-5 in their last five games playing on one days’ rest.
  • UNDER is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between the Kings and Captials.
  • The Kings are 9-4 in their last 13 road games.

The Kings suddenly have just a five-point lead over the Anaheim Ducks in the Pacific Division and have rotated wins and losses over the last nine games. They are in the midst of a seven-game road trip which has seen them go 2-2, including a 1-0 loss at the New Jersey Devils Sunday.

Netminder Jonathan Quick has missed the last three games due to a lower-body injury but, according to Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times, he is in line to return to the crease tonight. Jhonas Enroth and Peter Budaj have taken turns in the blue paint for L.A. with the latter backstopping the team to a 5-4 win over the New York Rangers on Friday.

The Capitals lead the NHL with a whopping 84 points but are coming off a 4-3 loss to the Dallas Stars Saturday. That loss snapped a five-game win streak so the Caps will look to start another one against a club that has performed very well versus them. The Kings have gone 8-1 in the last nine meetings with the Caps, which includes splitting both meetings in February of last season.

At this point of the season, this could very well be a preview of the Stanley Cup Final but the Kings better better start stringing wins together before other teams in the Pacific catch up.

Penguins Enjoy Facing Panthers

Pittsburgh Penguins Sidney Crosby

The Florida Panthers have been suffering from a litany of injuries as of late but will be looking to turn things around when they welcome the streaking Pittsburgh Penguins to town on Monday. The Panthers will likely be without two of their top defensemen as well as top centre Aleksander Barkov for the tilt, but sportsbooks still opened them in the -130 ballpark.

Shark Bites
  • The Penguins are 2-6 in their last 8 Monday games.
  • The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between the Panthers and Penguins.
  • The OVER is 7-3-3 in the Penguins last 13 overall.

The Pens have garnered victories in seven of their last nine and are peaking after the All-Star break. Pittsburgh is notoriously a strong regular season team, and they’ve easily dispatched the Panthers in recent matchups. Sidney Crosby and company are 4-0-1 in the last five clashes with their Florida counterparts.

Pittsburgh’s starting netminder Marc-Andre Fleury has loved facing the Cats in his career. Fleury is 14-8-1 with a .921 save percentage in 24 career contests with the Panthers. He’s scheduled to get the start in Sunrise tonight.

Jayhawks Seeking Revenge vs Cowboys

The Kansas Jayhawks are undefeated at home this season and face a squad that hasn’t been getting the job done on the road in the Oklahoma State Cowboys tonight. Kansas (21-4 SU) is a perfect 13-0 SU at Allen Fieldhouse, while the Cowboys are a paltry 1-6 SU away from Oklahoma.

Shark Bites
  • The Jayhawks are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between Kansas and Oklahoma State.
  • The Jayhawks are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games.

The Cowboys are currently tied for second last in the Big 12 standings, but they did stun Kansas 86-67 to record one of its three wins back on January 19. Jawun Evans paved the way for the Cowboys, recording 22 points, eight assists and six rebounds.

After the game, Kansas guard Devonte Graham expressed his displeasure with the loss, saying “losing, getting the court stormed on you - I kind of hate that.” Needless to say, revenge will be on the Jayhawks’ mind in the second meeting between the schools this season.

In fact, when the Jayhawks have lost, they’ve lost big this year. Three of Kansas’s four setbacks have come by double figures.

Early Derby Favorite Nyquist in Action
