UFC: Prop Odds on Potential GSP Return

Ever since Georges St. Pierre walked away from the UFC there has been rampant speculation as to if and when he would return. Despite recovering from a torn ACL he suffered during practice in early 2014, GSP decided to stay away from the sport and has openly criticized their drug testing policies. There have been several rumors about a potential return, and recently GSP trained with renowned boxing coach Freddie Roach and reports suggested that if he could make it through a training camp, he would return very soon.

Underdogs Thriving in Spurs-Clips Matchup

Chris Paul Tony Parker

When the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs collide, there’s plenty of underdog value to be found. Dogs are 5-1 ATS in the previous six matchups between the sides, and they’ll face off once again in the Lone Star State on Tuesday. The Clippers opened as 9-point underdogs at most sportsbooks.

Shark Bites
  • The Clippers are 0-5 ATS in their last five games as an underdog of 9 or more.
  • The Spurs are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games with two days off between games.
  • The Clippers are 10-0 SU in their last 10 games after a loss.

The Clips and Spurs have also been synonymous with going below totals as of late. Twelve of the Clippers’ last 16 games have gone UNDER, while the O/U is 2-8 in L.A.’s previous 10.

Just how good are the Spurs at AT&T Center? Gregg Popovich’s crew are on a 41-game run in San Antonio – the third-best home streak of all-time. The Spurs are winners of three in a row despite struggling from beyond the arc, going 4 of 24 from three-point land against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday. San Antonio is connecting on just 20.5 percent from three over the past four games.

It was the Clippers who got the upper hand in their last meeting, a 105-86 home win on February 18.

Celtics, Pacers Love Going UNDER Totals

Isaiah Thomas Paul George

Totals bettors looking for an edge in Tuesday night’s slate of NBA action would be wise to consider the Boston Celtics-Indiana Pacers matchup. In the last five meetings between the Eastern Conference foes, the UNDER is a perfect 5-0. Sportsbooks opened the total for the tilt at 207.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in three of the Pacers' last four games with a closing total of 207.5 or less.
  • The visiting team is 2-6 SU in its last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Celtics are 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games after an ATS loss.

The Pacers, who were initially set as 1.5-point home favorites, have been struggling in this spot as of late. Indiana is a measly 0-5 ATS in their last five as home chalk. The contest will mark the beginning of a five-game home stand for Paul George and company.

Boston is four games up on Indiana for third place in the conference. The Celtics will not have an easy end to the season, as they’re forced to play nine of their last 16 on the road and face a difficult back-to-back with Wednesday’s home game against Oklahoma City looming.

Starting small forward Jae Crowder will not suit up for the C’s due to a high ankle sprain. That’s going to be great news for George who won’t have to contend with the key two-way player.

The OVER Commonplace when St. Joe’s Plays

There may be no more consistent OVER bet in this year’s NCAA Tournament than St. Joseph’s. The Hawks and their opponents have gone OVER in 11 of their past 13 games with St. Joe’s offense averaging 81.9 points per game in that span. A tough Round of 64 matchup awaits the Hawks as they take on the Cincinnati Bearcats Friday.

St. Joseph’s has been one of the most discipline teams in the nation with the Hawks coughing up very few turnovers and fouling very rarely. The scoring duo of Isaiah Mills and DeAndre Bembry has averaged a combined 35.7 points and 15.8 rebounds per game this season.

The Bearcats have been one of the toughest teams to score on this season as they have held opponents to 62.9 points per game and just 40.6 percent shooting from inside the arc. Cincinnati’s offense has been fuelled by a consistent output that has seen four different players average double-digit points.

Dayton Has Been Terrible ATS Recently

The ending stretch for the Dayton Flyers has not been great, as the team has gone 6-4 SU and 1-8-1 ATS in their final 10 games leading into the NCAAB Tournament. Dayton will try and rectify their recent irregularities when they open March Madness against the Syracuse Orange Friday.

Dayton’s offense has been one of the keys to their recent struggles as the team has scored less than 70 points in four of their past six games, despite going 4-2 SU in that span. A great defense has been an integral to long runs in March Madness and with Dayton holding their opponents to 65.8 points per game this season, they could be a dangerous team.

Syracuse completely fell apart at the end of the season winning just one of their final six games. Though that many losses are tough to swallow, three of them came against teams in the NCAA Tournament and another was against Louisville. The Orange features a similar type of team to Dayton, a group that wins on the back of their top-tier defense and scoring enough to get the win.

Bruins are the Ultimate Road Warriors

Boston Bruins NHL

The Boston Bruins have used the Eastern Conference’s best road record to stay competitive in the tight Atlantic Division and entering Tuesday’s schedule they hold a one-point lead over the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. The B’s will look to keep their momentum on the road alive and well when they visit the San Jose Sharks Tuesday evening.

Shark Bites
  • The Sharks are 5-0 SU in their last five games with two days off between games.
  • The Sharks are 7-0 SU in their last seven games versus teams with a winning record.
  • The Bruins are 1-4 SU in their last five games versus teams from the Pacific Division.

Online shop Bovada is presently offering the Sharks at -140 in moneyline markets while the Bruins are +110. As for the total, OVER 5.5 goals is -105 while UNDER 5.5 goals is -125.

The Bruins take their sensational 23-7-3 road record on a four-game trip with three dates in California followed by one at Madison Square Garden with a visit to the New York Rangers. They have a four-game winning streak on the road and have gone 11-2 SU in their last 13 away from home.

The Bruins have been the epitome of “average” versus teams from the Western Conference this season, posting a record of 6-6 versus the Central Division and 4-4-3 against the Pacific.

The Sharks are duking it out with the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks for control of the Pacific and enter Tuesday’s action five points behind the former and three behind the latter. Much like Tuesday’s visitors, the Sharks have saved their best hockey for the road. They have gone 25-9-3 – the best mark in the entire league – and are just 13-15-3 on home ice this season.

Both of these teams have a lot to play for down the stretch, but with the Bruins’ exploits on the road and the Sharks’ issues on home ice, the value may very well be with the visiting side tonight.

Northern Iowa On A Crazy Hot Streak ATS

Northern Iowa will make their second consecutive trip to the dance and they will be doing so as a scorching play for bettors. The Panthers have gone a stellar 11-1-1 ATS in their previous 13 games, a span that also saw the team lose just one game SU. NIU will look to make it past the first round this year when they take on the Texas Longhorns Friday.

It has not been a banner year offensively for NIU this season as they average just 68 points per game, but their 11th ranked defense has bailed them out. Keeping players fresh will be key for the Panthers, as they tended to stick to a relatively short bench, with seven players seeing the court in most games.

This season has been much better than most Longhorns fans would have predicted with Texas going 20-12 with six victories over ranked teams. There were questions about how the team would adjust to Shaka Smart’s system, but as the season went on the players figured out the system. Texas will get a big boost with the return of Cameron Ridley, who has been out of the lineup in all but 12 games this season.

WVU Comes Into NCAAB Tourney Red-Hot

A span of tough losses in mid-February could have derailed West Virginia this season, but the Mountaineers bounced back and enter the NCAA Tournament with a 6-1 SU and ATS record in their past seven games. WVU opens their March Madness against Stephen F. Austin Friday.

West Virginia has fully embraced the full-court press this season and has thrived on hounding their opponents defensively. The Mountaineers cause more turnovers than almost anyone in the country and that aggression also has them grabbing a higher percentage of offensive rebounds than any other team.

The one team that was better than WVU at creating turnovers? Stephen F. Austin. The Lumberjacks enter the tournament as winners of 20-straight games with their last loss coming on December 29. Senior Thomas Walkup has been the offensive cornerstone for SFA, with the forward averaging 17.5 ppg this season.

UNDER Trending When Wisconsin Plays

Wisconsin may have been largely forgotten in the loaded Big Ten, but they certainly deserve to be on bettors’ radar. The UNDER has gone 8-1 in the Badgers past nine games with Wisconsin and their opponents combining for a mere 130.6 points per game. The NCAAB Tournament will tipoff for Wisconsin when they take on the Pitt Panthers Friday.

If Wisconsin wants to make their third consecutive trip to the Final Four they will need Nigel Hayes to be their best player. Hayes, who has been in Madison for both of those deep tournament runs, has averaged 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.1 steals per game this year.

If you close your eyes and imagine the most mediocre team you can and you will see Pitt. The Panthers finished in the middle of the pack in the ACC in offense and defense while only recording one victory over a ranked team all season.

Can FGCU Shock the World Again?

It has been three years since Florida Gulf Coast captured the nation’s attention and imagination in the 2013 NCAAB Tournament. The Eagles, who were in March Madness for the first time in their school’s history, knocked off No.2 Georgetown and No.7 San Diego State and finished the tourney a perfect 3-0 ATS for bettors. FGCU will look to remain a perfect play for bettors and book a date with UNC when they take on the Fairleigh Dickinson Knights in a play-in game Tuesday.

The Eagles were looking like a longshot to be dancing this season just a few weeks ago, but the team won seven of their final nine games to claim the Atlantic Sun Conference title and a chance to captivate the country once again. FGCU is paced by star forward Marc Eddy Norelia who averaged 17.2 points per game, sixth in the conference, and 9.2 rebounds, second best in the Atlantic Sun.

Fairleigh Dickinson had a similar path to the tournament as FGCU, as the Knights were slumping through mid-February only to win five-straight games to win the Northeast Conference. It will not be easy for Fairleigh Dickinson, as they are one of the few teams in the tournament to average fewer points than they allow this season. However, the sophomore tandem of Darian Anderson and Earl Potts Jr. make for a lethal scoring combination if the Knights get into a shootout.
