Below, find some suggested bets for Wednesday January 25, 2022.


Florida vs. Tennessee

The Gators are 3-8 Against The Spread in their last 11 games following a Straight Up loss and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games.  The Volunteers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games.  Gambling911.com has a line of Vols -7.5 but this one opened at -8.5 and has moved to -9.  The home team has won nine of the last ten in this series.  Tennessee has won seven of the last nine.  Using the current 9 point spread, the Vols have covered in five of the last ten.  The Vols are 10-0 Straight Up at home this season and 52-9 Straight Up at home since 2018.  You're looking at a price of -360 on the moneyline but an ML bet on the Vols might be worth it here.

Marquette vs. Seton Hall

Golden Eagles are 6-0 Against The Spread in their last 6 games overall while the Pirates are 5-12 ATS in their last 17 home games and 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a Against The Spread loss. But Seton Hall is 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games following a double-digit loss at home.  Gambling911.com has a line of Seton Hall -3.5 while the books opened at -4.5 but dropped to -4.  Both teams have 6 losses on the season.  Marquette has been profitable, going 12-8 Against The Spread.  Seton Hall is 8-9 ATS so far this season. The Pirates have failed to cover in six of their last eight games overall.  Seton Hall has won six of the last seven in this series, losing the most recent head-to-head by a single point on the road.  Take Seton Hall on the moneyline here.

Bucks vs. Cavs

We have this one as a PICK'EM leaning towards Milwaukee -1.  While Cleveland has won the last meeting, the Bucks had won the previous eight in the series.  Milwaukee is a big fat loser for gamblers this season as they are currently 21-28 Against The Spread.  Cleveland, on the other hand, has been especially profitable (29-17-2).  Bucks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win.  The Cavs are 8-2 Straight Up in their last ten games.

Suns vs. Jazz

We have Phoenix as a -1 point road favorite.  Phoenix as an away favorite is 16-2 Straight Up since 2018.  Phoenix has won the last five games in this series.  We will take Phoenix on the moneyline.
