JD Notae holds the keys for Arkansas against Florida tonight, plus other best bets for Tuesday

Good afternoon everybody, it’s Chris Bengel. We’re at one of those points in which the wagering choices might be a little bit more minimal than normal. The NBA All-Star Game happened on Sunday, which implies that any NBA bets are off of the table up until Thursday.

Speaking of NBA All-Star weekend, I’ve constantly took pleasure in the celebrations that feature it, consisting of the Slam Dunk Contest. However, the occasion has actually really lost a few of its radiance over the previous number of years. New York Knicks forward Obi Toppin took house the Slam Dunk Contest title on Saturday and produced some unforgettable dunks. But my most significant problem with the occasion now is that the field of rivals isn’t what it as soon as was. 

Over the previous couple of years, we have actually seen people like Derrick Jones Jr., Hamidou Diallo, Dennis Smith Jr. and Toppin take part in the Slam Dunk Contest. These aren’t precisely names that move the needle for the typical basketball fan. The league requires to do whatever in its favor to get star power back in case. I’m certainly not anticipating LeBron James to choose to do the Slam Dunk Contest on the back end of his profession, however I’d like to see somebody like a Ja Morant or a Zach Lavine go all out. Just bring some enjoyment back to the occasion that, at one point, constantly made headings on All-Star weekend.

Anyway, enough about that. While we do not have NBA video games on the docket on Tuesday, we do have some contests worth banking on. With that in mind, let’s get to the choices!

🔥 The Hot Ticket

🏀 No. 18 Arkansas at Florida, 7 p.m. | TELEVISION: ESPN2

The Pick: Arkansas -1 (-110): I comprehend that this is one video game that gamblers may choose to keep away from, however I believe that’s a big error. Florida has actually been a hazardous group that is having a strong season. They actually made a declaration with an upset triumph over Auburn this previous weekend. However, although this one occurs in Gainesville, I’m not anticipating a repeat efficiency.

There’s extremely couple of groups in the nation that have actually been hotter than the Razorbacks over the last month. Arkansas has actually been triumphant in 11 of its last 12 video games. The just acne? A 68-67 loss at the hands of Alabama on Feb. 12 (the Crimson Tide presently have a similar record to the Razorbacks).

The distinction in this video game most likely might be the play of Arkansas star guard JD Notae. On the season, Notae is balancing 18.5 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.1 helps while shooting 32.2 percent from 3. However, Notae has actually shot far better from beyond the arc on the roadway as he holds a 41.4 percent shooting clip from deep in 8 roadway video games this season. If Notae continues to shot the ball well from deep, I’m more than positive in the Razorbacks covering this extremely little number on the roadway.

Key Trend: Razorbacks are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 video games as a preferred

💰 The Picks


🏀 College basketball

No. 17 Tennessee at Missouri, 7 p.m. | TELEVISION: SEC Network

The Pick: Missouri +10.5 (-110)Missouri is among the worst groups, record-wise, in the SEC and it may appear nuts to back them versus a group that can be dominant like Tennessee. However, the Tigers are coming off of a great protective efficiency versus Mississippi State — among the much better groups in the conference. Missouri held Mississippi State to simply 37.3 percent shooting from the field and just 58 points on the night. Mississippi State required a last-second protective stand to keep Missouri from requiring overtime.

As lately, Missouri has actually been an extremely strong group ATS. The Tigers are 8-2 ATS following a straight-up loss and likewise are 16-5 ATS as a house underdog over their last 21 video games. In addition, Tennessee shoots simply 43 percent from the field, which benefits 11th in the SEC. Now, the Volunteers do hold the second-best shooting portion (34.2 percent) from 3 in the SEC, so that’s where they do the bulk of their damage. If Missouri can safeguard the boundary as soon as again, this is a good cushion that ought to quickly cash. 

Key Trend: Missouri is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 house video games


Sharks at Ducks, 10 p.m. I TELEVISION: ESPN+

Latest Odds:

Anaheim Ducks

The Pick: Ducks (-160) — Backing a group that has actually lost 4 of its last 5 video games most likely appears a bit insane. Perhaps it is, however I occur to like the Ducks in this area. 

Since the Sharks were off on Monday, it’s anticipated that veteran goaltender James Reimer will get the start in web for San Jose in this match. Over his last 4 starts, Reimer has actually given up 14 overall objectives, consisting of quiting 5 objectives in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Canucks recently. In truth, over Reimer’s last 6 video games, he’s yielded a minimum of 3 objectives in 5 of those contests.  

Meanwhile, the Ducks might not be winning at a strong rate, however this is a group that is coming off of a seven-goal efficiency versus the Canucks. Anaheim has actually likewise scored a minimum of 3 objectives in 7 of their last 10 video games — even if it hasn’t remained in a winning effort. Simply put, I’m more than positive in the Ducks offense to discover the back of the net frequently if Reimer does end up being in web. Back the Ducks in this area.

Key Trend: The Ducks are 11-4 in their last 15 video games as a preferred
