Cardinal Host UCLA In Pac-12 Championship Friday

The eighth-ranked Stanford Cardinal had their way with the 16th-ranked UCLA Bruins in a 35-17 win on Saturday to close out their season with the best record in the PAC-12. Another win over those same Bruins this Friday at home will make them this year’s PAC-12 champions. Stanford hosts UCLA in a PAC-12 title game that nobody could have projected at the beginning of the year when USC was ranked No. 1 in the country and Oregon was in the top-five. Even without Andrew Luck the Cardinal have managed to get to the championship game with just one conference loss all season, and they already have the blue print for beating UCLA heading in to this finale.

College Basketball Sportsbook Preview:

Indiana Still No. 1; Duke No. 2

The Indiana Hoosiers have scraped through the first six games of their season with a perfect record, although an overtime win over Georgetown was another reminder of just how hard it is to stay at the top. The top-ranked Hoosiers will face an even tougher test this Tuesday when they host the 14th-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels, the same night that the third-ranked Michigan Wolverines host the No. 18 North Carolina State Wolfpack. Meanwhile, the Duke Blue Devils are right behind Indiana at No. 2 in the top-25 heading in to this week, but they also face another tough test when they host the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes in an ACC/Big Ten challenge game on Thursday night.

NFL Betting Preview: Saints, Falcons Clash In Key NFC South Showdown

The Atlanta Falcons’ only stumble this season came against the division rival New Orleans Saints in week 10. A win over their NFC South rivals on Thursday will put them in better position to both clinch their division and take home field advantage for the playoffs. The 10-1 Falcons host the 5-6 Saints in a key matchup for both teams, each for different reasons. While Atlanta can move one step closer to the postseason, New Orleans is simply trying to stay alive after having its three-game win streak ended by the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.

NBA Online Betting Preview: Lakers Continue To Search For Rhythm Under D’Antoni

It hasn’t been easy for the Los Angeles Lakers early on this season. Back-to-back losses at the Sacramento Kings and Memphis Grizzlies were proof that it will take time to get things going under new head coach Mike D’Antoni, but Los Angeles clawed its way back to .500 with a win over the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday. The Lakers are back in action on Tuesday against the Indiana Pacers, then play the Denver Nuggets at the Staples Center on Friday. Meanwhile, the matchup of the week could come Thursday when the San Antonio Spurs visit the Miami Heat, a key early season test between last year’s Western conference finalists and NBA champions.
