UFC 124 Betting at Bodog

We will see if Josh Koscheck’s predictions about his own fights are better than his hockey forecasts.

When the UFC visited Montreal’s Bell Centre back in early May for UFC 113, Koscheck took Paul Daley down to the ground and controlled him for most of three straight rounds, winning a straight 30-27 unanimous decision. The victory was by far the biggest of Koscheck’s career and it earned him a welterweight title bout against Georges St. Pierre.


NBA Odds - Hornets Thunder

Despite a win over New Orleans earlier this season, the books have listed Oklahoma City as a 3-point road underdog in their NBA betting matchup for Friday night.

Chris Paul has never lost at home against the Thunder - winning eight straight overall. New Orleans (14-7 SU, 11-9-1 ATS) has dropped four of its previous six games, but is a sizzling 9-2 at home thus far.


Wings vs. Habs NHL Betting

UFC Odds: Struve vs. McCorkle

Heavyweight giant Stefan Struve (23-4-0) has been getting all the motivation he needs for his upcoming UFC 124 fight against undefeated Sean McCorkle (10-0-0). Despite MMA betting lines listing McCorkle as an underdog, he’s been running his mouth and posting insulting comments about Struve on his Twitter account.

McCorkle (+140 at 5Dimes) has no shortage of confidence when talking about his upcoming UFC 124 fight. His trash talk has been more like a one-liner stand-up comedy routine than fight hype;


Colts vs. Titans Odds Preview

Sportsbooks won’t give up on the Indianapolis Colts just yet in their NFL odds and bettors can't seem to give up on them either, with almost 70% of the consensus voting here backing them.

Even though the Colts have lost three of four, even though they’re hanging by a thread in the AFC playoff hunt, even though Peyton Manning is enduring perhaps the worst slump of his career, books like Sports Interaction have Indy listed as a 4-point road favorite.


Week 14 NFL Picks from SIA

Normally, the Colts at -3.5 on the road against a struggling team with no QB would be a foolish line and money in the bank for Indy backers.

But while many are still betting on Peyton Manning to get it together, it's far from a sure thing when the Colts visit Tennessee tonight in the Thursday Night NFL odds battle.

Sports Interaction betting analyst Frank Doyle makes his picks for Week 14 of the NFL.


NCAAB Odds: SEC vs. Big East

The SEC/Big East Invitational has been an annual college basketball betting event since the 2007 season, featuring two doubleheaders between SEC and Big East opponents.

The first leg of this year’s doubleheader will be played at Freedom Hall in Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday. The matchups on NCAAB odds list will be the SEC’s Arkansas Razorbacks against the Big East’s Seton Hall Pirates, and the SEC’s Kentucky Wildcats against the Big East’s Notre Dame Fighting Irish.


UFC 124 Upset Bets

The MMA betting lines for UFC 124 are offering fight fans a couple of underdog opportunities for this weekend with John Howard and mac Danzig shaping up as interesting plays.

Betting against heavily-favored Welterweight champion George St-Pierre may be ill-advised, but Howard (14-5-0) and Danzig (20-7-1) are looking like they both have a decent chance to upset their opponents and win as MMA betting underdogs.


NFL Week 14 Power Rankings

Despite last week's huge upset loss to the Raiders, the Chargers retain the top spot in the math-based NFL Power Rankings with a miniscule lead over Philadelphia.
Some feel the Patriots and Jets should be much higher, but let's face it - the Pats can't stop the pass and the Jets haven't beaten any good teams.

Both the Chargers and Eagles are in tough this week with matchups against the Chiefs and Cowboys, which could give the No. 3 team, the Giants, a chance to leap over both of them if they can get it done versus Minnesota.


NBA Betting Lines: Jazz, Heat

Utah (13-8-1 ATS) defeated Miami (9-13 ATS) in their only meeting so far this season, but they are just slight 1.5-point home favorites for Wednesday when they'll try to stop the Heat’s five-game winning streak in a busy night on NBA betting lines.

Oddsmakers at Sportsbook.ag aren’t playing heavy favorites one way or the other in this contest, as the two teams went down-to-the-wire in a thrilling 116-114 OT win for Utah last time out. The Jazz won the only game between the two last year as well - and have earned back-to-back ATS wins.
