Kentucky vs. Ohio State Line

Despite the dominance thus far in this NCAA Tournament by the overall number one-seeded Buckeyes, the Kentucky vs. Ohio State line was coming in at a mere -5.  Over 90 percent of those betting the spread in this game were in agreement it seems.  With such lopsided action, Gambling911.com anticipated a shift to -5.5 and quite possibly -6.  Gambling911.com believes this line should be set at -7 based on our own calculations.  The total in this game was 140 with heavy action on the OVER.

Ohio State rolled over George Mason this past weekend to advance into this year’s Sweet 16.  David Lighty scored all seven of his 3-point shots, scoring 25 points while William Buford and Jared Sullinger each scored 18 points, leading to a 98-66 victory. 

"They're the toughest squad that we faced," George Mason forward Ryan Pearson said of Ohio State. "When they got guys that's just hitting on all cylinders, all night long, and they're sharing the ball and they're just going out there and just having fun, it's kind of tough for the opponent to stop.

"They just made shots. And even when we tried to cut the lead and come out, they just came right back at us, firing on all cylinders. They're a great program, they're a tough team to beat. I think they're going to go real far in this tournament."

Meanwhile, Kentucky, which nearly got knocked out of the first round, managed an impressive win over West Virginia on Saturday.  This will be the third time Kentucky has played a number one seed in the Sweet 16. The two previous times Kentucky lost by double-digits.

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
