NCAAB Betting: Kentucky vs Duke Odds

Duke Blue Devils Grayson Allen

A matchup of American collegiate basketball royalty is set for Tuesday’s slate of NCAA hoops, as the second-ranked Kentucky Wildcats tangle with the fourth-ranked Duke Blue Devils at the United Center. Kentucky leads the series 11-9 but Duke has triumphed in seven of the past eight meetings between the two powerhouses dating back to 1979.

Shark Bites
  • Duke is 23-1 SU in its last 24 games with two days off.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of Duke's last five games as home underdogs.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of Kentucky's last eight games on the road in November.

The Blue Devils, who opened as 2.5-point underdogs at most sportsbooks, are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as dogs. The total has also gone OVER in four of Duke’s last five games when labeled as pups.

Unsurprisingly, Kentucky has been dominant in the month of November in recent years. The Wildcats are 20-0 SU in their past 20 games as favorites in the month, with their last loss as a favorite in November coming in 2010.

Cavaliers on a Seven-Game ATS Skid

Cleveland Cavaliers Kevin Love

The Cleveland Cavaliers may sit on top of the Eastern Conference at 8-2 SU, but they’re at the bottom of the league when it comes to covering the spread. LeBron James and company are a paltry 3-7 ATS and are riding an ugly seven-game ATS skid ahead of Tuesday’s clash with the Detroit Pistons in the Motor City which has seen them fail to eclipse the 100-point mark in each game.

Shark Bites
  • The Cavaliers are 1-11 ATS in their last 12 games as road favorites in November.
  • The visiting team is 7-2 SU in its last nine games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Cavaliers' last five games.

Detroit turned some heads at the start of the year, winning and covering in five out of their opening six contests but, like the Cavs, have also hit a wall at the betting window. Detroit is 0-4 SU and ATS in its previous four matchups. According to recent history, Cleveland has had the upper hand in this series. The wine and gold are 5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Pistons.

College Football Week 12 Odds Analysis

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are 8-4 straight up and 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games played in the month of November. The Cowboys will try to keep their undefeated season alive this Saturday when they host the Baylor Bears.

Oklahoma State is a 1-point favorite on Saturday according to online sportsbook 5Dimes. With Baylor losing last week and TCU losing the week before, Oklahoma State remains the only undefeated team in the Big 12 conference.


Stanford is an Intriguing Play After a Loss

Stanford Football

Stanford is coming off their second loss of the season, thanks to an assortment of blunders, but the game following a loss is a position the Cardinal revel in with the team going 8-1-1 ATS in their past 10 in that situation. Stanford will host the California Golden Bears Saturday.

When all was said and done, Stanford’s two-point loss to Oregon last week had to do with botched snaps and a failed two-point conversion. Stanford has previously only lost their first game of the season, but rebounded following that behind Kevin Hogan’s three touchdowns. 

Cal ended their four-game losing streak when they topped the winless Oregon State Beavers in their last outing. Quarterback Jared Goff came through in a big way against Oregon State, with the junior throwing six touchdowns.

Sooners Continues To Be Hot OVER Play

Sooners Football

Oklahoma’s high-octane offense has OVERs cashing out this season with seven of their past eight going OVER the closing total. The Sooners will try to climb atop the Big 12 standings when they host the TCU Horned Frogs Saturday.

Oklahoma is probably the biggest winner from last week with a 44-34 victory over previously undefeated Baylor. The Sooners have a legitimate argument for being the most complete team in the conference after not only scoring, but holding the top defense in the nation in check.

TCU is right in the mix atop the Big 12, but injuries to both Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson may derail their season. The injuries caused TCU to struggle against a Kansas Jayhawks team that is winless on the season.

SEC Showdown: LSU vs Ole Miss Odds

LSU Football

The past nine meetings between the LSU Tigers and the Ole Miss Rebels have been leaning towards the underdog, with dogs going a near perfect 8-1 ATS. The SEC-rivals will renew their acquaintances Saturday in Oxford. 

LSU has lost their past two games after a 31-14 defeat to tough-minded Arkansas last week. Former Heisman front-runner Leonard Fournette has gone through his two worst performances of the season with 122 yards in the past two weeks, which is less than any other individual game this season.

Ole Miss is coming off a bye week, but suffered a bizarre one-point overtime loss to Arkansas in their last game. Laquon Treadwell has recorded 100-plus receiving yards in five consecutive games with six trips to the endzone in that span.

UCLA Struggling to Cover vs Utah

Josh Rosen UCLA

UCLA has been going through some growing pains this season, but history will not be helping them when they visit the Utah Utes Saturday. The Bruins are just 1-4 ATS in their past five contests against the Utes.

UCLA is coming off a heart-breaking loss to Washington State that saw the Bruins give up the game-winning touchdown with three seconds left. The biggest positive for UCLA backers to take away is the play of freshman quarterback Josh Rosen who has not thrown an interception in his past four starts.

A double-overtime loss to Arizona has realistically eliminated Utah from the delusional thought of making the college playoffs. Running back Devontae Booker has averaged 138.7 rushing yards and a touchdown in the past three games.

MNF Betting Preview: Texans at Bengals

Bengals NFL Football

Monday Night Football in Week 10 pits the Houston Texans against the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals in Ohio, and just from looking at betting lines, it’s easy to see which direction both teams are heading in. Heading into Week 10, Cincy was one of the NFL’s three undefeated teams. Houston opened as 10.5-point underdogs at most sportsbooks —the biggest underdogs they’ve been since 2006.

It’s the Texans who have had the advantage at the betting window when facing the Bengals lately, though. Houston is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings between the clubs. The Texans have been far from a safe bet when as underdogs, going 3-17 ATS in their last 20 games against the favorites.

Temple has Been Great at Bouncing Back

Temple Football

Temple is coming off a loss for just the second time this season, but the Owls have traditionally shown value in that spot going 10-4 ATS in their past 14 games after a loss. Temple will try to bounce-back when they host the tough Memphis Tigers Saturday. 

A loss against the unranked USF will likely cost Temple an appearance in a New Year’s Six Bowl and have now lost two of their past three after starting the season 7-0. Temple still sits atop the AAC East, but will need to fight to keep a hold of that position with USF breathing down their necks.

Things aren’t looking much better in Memphis as the team lost their past two and have gone from a potential playoff team to likely playing in a lesser bowl come December.

Week 12 Odds: Iowa vs Purdue

Iowa Football

There has not been many upsets when the Purdue Boilermakers and the Iowa Hawkeyes meet, as the favorite is 12-2 SU in the last 14 meetings between the two teams. Iowa will welcome Purdue to Kinnick Stadium Saturday.

Despite a perfect 10-0 record, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of talk surrounding the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa doesn’t tend to win pretty, or by large amounts (only five wins by double-digits this season), but seems like a lock to be on a collision course with Ohio State for the Big Ten championship.

Purdue has been outscored 69-28 in their past two games with freshman quarterback David Blough throwing three interceptions.
