Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

Number one Ohio State suffered its first loss of the NCAA Men’s College Basketball season Saturday against the Wisconsin Badgers.  Ohio State has the second shortest odds of winning the 2011 NCAA Men’s College Basketball Championship (4/1) after Duke (3/1) at SBG Global. 

Jordan Taylor scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half to rally number 13 Wisconsin from a 15-point deficit to beat Ohio State 71-67.

Wisconsin was sharp from beyond the arc, hitting 12 of 24 3-pointers to help seal the upset.

This had been the second-longest season-opening win streak in Buckeyes history. The 1960-61 team opened 27-0.

Wisconsin beat a team ranked No. 1 in the AP poll for the second time in school history. The Badgers also beat top-ranked Ohio State in 1962.

The Wisconsin Badgers would pay out $600 for every $10 betshould they win this year’s Championship.

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.

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.
