Raptors are a Fantastic Bet vs Pacers

Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry

The Toronto Raptors have historically had the Indiana Pacers’ number and will be looking to continue their hot play Monday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Raps have gone 6-2 SU and have covered the closing spread in each of their last eight meetings with Indiana.

Shark Bites
  • The Raptors are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Pacers last 5 overall.
  • The Raptors are 7-0 ATS in the last 7 meetings with the Pacers in Indiana.

The Pacers are coming off a forgettable stretch that saw them lose four of their last five games. Indy has failed to parlay a strong November into December thanks largely in part to a total collapse on the defensive end of the floor. Indiana is allowing an average of 123.5 points in their last four defeats, which came at the hands of the Pistons, Warriors, Jazz and Trail Blazers.

Raptors’ small forward DeMarre Carroll is expected to miss his fifth straight contest with a knee injury, but the Dinos have fared well in his absence, going 4-1 SU during that span.

SNF Betting Preview: Patriots at Texans

Sunday Night Football Patriots Texans

In the wake of back-to-back losses, oddsmakers aren’t giving the banged up New England Patriots a lot of respect in Week 14 against the Houston Texans in the Lone Star State. Most sportsbooks opened the Pats as 3.5-point chalk – the second lowest spread in their favor so far in the 2015 campaign.

Shark Bites
  • The Patriots are 22-4 SU in their last 26 games in December.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Patriots' last six games against the Texans.
  • The Patriots are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after a loss.

Trend seekers will be happy to know the Patriots have traditionally matched up well against Houston, owning a 4-1 ATS record in their last five clashes with the Texans.

The Texans were winners of four in a row prior to last week’s tilt with the Buffalo Bills but were brought down to life thanks to a 30-21 loss at Ralph Wilson Stadium. The Patriots looked like a different team than we’re used to seeing against Philadelphia and were clearly missing some key pieces on offense in Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman. If New England loses three in a row, there may be a slight sense of panic in Massachusetts.

NCAAB Betting: Mizzou vs Arizona

Kadeem Allen Arizona

The Arizona Wildcats are good, but they have been amazing on home court as they are currently riding a 44-game winning streak at the McKale Center. The Wildcats will be hosting the Mizzou Tigers Sunday, a team that has not won a true road game since February 2014.

Arizona is coming off a win that saw freshman Allonzo Trier put on a breakthrough performance. The Seattle-native scored 27 points and shot 80 percent from the field in an 85-72 win over Fresno State. The Wildcats may be undefeated, but the final scores have not inspired a lot of confidence, with three of their last four wins coming by single-digits.

Mizzou enters this game riding a three-game winning streak on the back of two freshmen. The Wildcats top two scorers this season are Kevin Puryear (14.1) and Terrence Phillips (10.0) who are both in their first season in college.

Thunder Have Been Squashing Jazz

Despite a 15-8 SU record this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder have been faltering when it comes to covering the spread with a lousy 10-13 ATS mark. However, the Thunder have been cashing out when they face the Utah Jazz, the team they will play Sunday, as OKC is 14-8-1 ATS in the past 23 meetings between the teams.

Oklahoma City has won the past eight games against the Jazz, including a 94-90 win on Friday in the first game in this home-and-home set. In two games against the Jazz this season, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook have combined for an average 46 points, 14 rebounds and ten assists.

The Jazz will need to start scoring if they expect to end their eight game skid against the Thunder as Utah has not score more than 96 points once in those outings. Utah went just eight of 28 from beyond the arc Friday, despite ranking seventh in the NBA in that category.

Canucks Unable to Win On The Road

Ryan Miller Vancouver Canucks

If the Vancouver Canucks expect to be a legitimate playoff caliber team, they will need to start getting it done on the road. Since the start of November the Canucks have just two wins in 11 games away from Vancouver. It will not be easy for the Canucks to rectify the situation Sunday as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Canucks offense has been a two-man show once again with the Sedin twins combining for 62 points and a +12 rating through 30 games. Vancouver has allowed the ninth most goals in the NHL this season with goalie Ryan Miller posting a pedestrian .914 save percentage.

You can’t talk about the Blackhawks without talking about Patrick Kane who leads the NHL in goals and points. If Kane puts up a point tonight he will extend his streak to 26 consecutive games with at least one point, which would be the longest streak since Mats Sundin hit 30 in 1992-92.

Chargers in Rare Territory in Week 14

Chargers Rivers

Just how rough are things for the San Diego Chargers right now? The Bolts, who travel to Kansas City for a date with the Chiefs in Week 14, opened as 10-point underdogs for the tilt—just the third time since 2004 they’ve been tabbed as double-digit dogs. San Diego covered the spread on both of those occasions (Oct. 18, 2015 at Green Bay and Dec. 12, 2013 at Denver).

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The total has gone OVER in three of the Chiefs' last four games as favorites.</li>
<li>The Chargers are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Chiefs in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of the Chargers' last eight games as underdogs.</li>
</ul>

As bad as the Chargers have been, it’s been a much different story for K.C. The Chiefs have won six straight games after starting the season 1-5, becoming a sizzling bet during that span in the form of six covers in a row. 

San Diego doesn’t have the best track record versus the Chiefs, as Philip Rivers and company have gone 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings with Kansas City.

Falcons’ ATS Skid Reaching Ugly Levels

A month into the NFL season, Atlanta and Carolina were tied for the NFC South lead with a pair of 4-0 records. But the division rivals proceeded to go in entirely different directions once the calendar turned to October, as the Falcons sit at 6-6 SU and the Panthers are a perfect 12-0. They’ll renew acquaintances Sunday in Charlotte.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Falcons are 1-4 SU in their last five games against the Panthers.</li>
<li>The Panthers are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games at home in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of the Falcons' last six games as underdogs.</li>
</ul>

The Falcons have been underperforming both on the field and at the betting window. Matt Ryan and company are riding an ugly eight-game ATS skid ahead of the matchup.

Another trend working in Carolina’s favor is the impact home field advantage has had in this series. In the last five meetings between the Panthers and Falcons, home sides are 4-1 ATS.

Steelers Have Had Success in Cincy

Paul Brown Stadium has been far from friendly territory for many NFL teams, but there is one opponent that has continually found success in Cincinnati—the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games against the Bengals in Cincy, and will be looking to make it 10-2 for their bettors in Week 14.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of the Bengals' last six games.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of the Steelers' last seven games as underdogs.</li>
<li>The Steelers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games as road underdogs in December.</li>
</ul>

In the wake of back-to-back defeats by Houston and Arizona, the Bengals have rebounded thanks to victories over St. Louis and Cleveland to sit at 10-2 SU and a sizzling 10-1-1 ATS on the season—good enough to make Andy Dalton’s crew the best bet in the league.

The Steelers have made a habit of hitting their stride in December in recent years, posting a perfect 8-0 ATS record in their last eight games in the month.
