 Arizona vs. Texas Line

With the 2011 NCAA Tournament Third Round odds up overnight Saturday, the Arizona vs. Texas game featured a line of -6 in favor of the Longhorns.  Spread action was even but the 139 total had some 95 percent of gamblers betting the OVER.  All odds were courtesy of Bookmaker.com.  Gambling911.com has determined that the line set on this game is fairly accurate.  This one goes off at 6:10 pm ET on TNT.

Texas advanced by just narrowly escaping Oakland on Friday with an 85-81 win.

"We just won a game against an outstanding team," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. "A team that's tough, hard-nosed and not going away. We knew they'd fight."

Tristan Thompson had 17 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks Friday, the fourth player in the past five years to get at least 15 points, 10 rebounds and five blocks in a tournament game.

Arizona, meanwhile, came even closer to an elimination with a two-point win over number 12-seeded Memphis.

Derrick Williams recorded his 12th double-double of the season (22 points, 10 rebounds) and blocked a potential tying shot with 3 seconds left to help Arizona advance to play Texas.

"It's as if he's playing in his backyard," Wildcats coach Sean Miller said. "He just has a way of making big plays and finishing the other team off. He did it here again tonight."

The Wildcats have won five of their past six and 13 of 16 games overall.

NBA Betting May 7, 2021 – Los Angeles Lakers at Portland Trail Blazers

The Los Angeles Lakers and Portland Trail Blazers will both be playing after the regular season concludes. We just don’t know if they’ll be in the top-six or in the play-in tournament. LA and Portland are two of three teams vying for the final two playoff spots with the club missing out being relegated to the play-in.

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

NBA Betting May 6, 2021 – Brooklyn Nets at Dallas Mavericks

If the Dallas Mavericks are relegated to the play-in tournament they can lay the blame on one of the worst teams in the Western Conference. The Mavs enter their contest with the Brooklyn Nets having won seven of their last 10 games with the three defeats all coming at the hands of the Sacramento Kings.

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 4, 2021 – Toronto Raptors at Los Angeles Clippers

The new play-in format has the Toronto Raptors in line to potentially compete for a spot in the postseason. That’s good news for a club that has plodded along for most of the campaign. While there are some who detest the play-in the Raps certainly aren’t one of them. They enter the week 2.5 games out of the 10th spot and continue a difficult stretch of games against Western Conference foes with Tuesday’s matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

NBA Betting May 3, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers are in a freefall that even their two best players have been unable to get them out of. We all thought they would return to their early season ways once Anthony Davis and LeBron James returned, but that hasn’t happened.

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

NBA Betting May 1, 2021 – Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

If the Denver Nuggets didn’t have to play Golden State they’d be in a much better position right now. Despite the loss of Jamal Murray, the Nugs are on a roll having won four straight and eight of their last nine games. Their only loss during that span was to the Dubs and a setback to the same club preceded the current run.
