BYU vs. Wofford Line

The expected BYU vs. Wofford line based on Gambling911.com’s calculations was going to open at Cougars -14.  The official odds on this game will be available at betED.com beginning Monday and it is possible we could see a reduced spread due to a key player on the favored team not being available to play.   

BYU earned a number three seed in the Southeast region of the 2011 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.  They will face Wofford from the Southern Conference on Thursday, March 17 in the second round.  

The Cougars are just 3-2 since losing forward Brandon Davies to an honor code violation, making an upset by Wofford possible.  The last time they were as high as a fourth seed was 1987-88.  

BYU comes into this game having lost badly to San Diego State on Saturday and that has a lot to do with Davies absence. 

"It's a big factor. He's a key player on that team," San Diego State Senior Billy White said of Davies not being present. "We took advantage of that and crashed the boards, just played San Diego State basketball. We knew if we just tried to contain Jimmer and tried to make everybody else shoot, we knew that we had the game."

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.

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

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

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.

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.
