Virginia Tech on road against Tar Heels

The North Carolina Tar Heels have been tagged with seven ATS losses in their last nine games against the Virginia Tech Hokies as those two schools renew hostilities in college basketball betting action on Sunday.

North Carolina topped Virginia Tech 60-56 when the teams hit the hardwood together last season but failed to cover the 11-point road spread at the sportsbooks in that UNDER result. The Tar Heels, however, have managed to go 9-1 SU in the last 10 games between the teams dating back to 2008.

NFL Conf Champ Underdog Betting Angles

With each of the previous seven NFC Championship Games decided by seven points or less, the Green Bay Packers would seem to be a good bet considering they are consensus 7.5-point underdogs visiting the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

In fact, recent history in conference title games suggests the second-seeded Packers also have a great shot to upset the top-seeded Seahawks if they cover the spread.

NFL Conf Champ Rematch Betting Angles

The AFC Championship Game is almost always a rematch of a regular-season game, but the revenge factor hasn’t produced much of a handicapping angle for bettors.

This will be ninth time in 11 years that there will be a rematch of a regular-season game in the AFC Championship Game.

In the previous 10 years, the AFC Championship Game was a rematch eight times. The loser of the regular-season meeting(s) has won the rematch four times both straight-up and against the spread. In the four times the winner of the regular-season meeting won the rematch, the winner went 3-1 ATS.

Blue Devils hitting the floor at Louisville

The Duke Blue Devils will be looking for some revenge for a SU and ATS loss to the Louisville Cardinals in their most recent meeting when those schools hit the hardwood together in college basketball odds action on Saturday.

Louisville knocked off Duke 85-63 as a 4-point favorite on the betting lines the last time the schools met in the Elite Eight of the 2013 NCAA Tournament in an OVER result. The teams had previously met in November 2012 when the Blue Devils topped the Cardinals 76-71 as 1-point chalk.

Anaheim and Los Angeles have already met twice this season, with the Ducks winning 6-5 at home at -105 on the NHL odds and the Kings winning 3-2 at home at -144 on the betting lines. The Ducks hold the slight 4-3 edge in the last seven games between the Pacific Division clubs.
