Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- Feb. 11, Football has officially been put to bed for the season so the hardcourt and the ice are bettors fields of choice over the next few months as both the NBA and NHL make their second-half push to the playoffs. The hottest bet at VietBet from now through the month of March is on college basketball and this Thursday night heats things up with a couple of marquee matchups.

Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- Feb. 11

Starting in the Big Ten, the No. 4 Iowa Hawkeyes will try and tighten their grip on the regular season conference title with a road win against Indiana. Iowa comes into this matchup at 10-1 straight-up in conference play and it is a profitable 4-1 against the spread in its last five games. Indiana is coming off a bad 68-63 loss to Penn State as an 8.5-point road favorite on VietBet’s closing betting line. The Hoosiers are still very much in the hunt for the title at 9-2 SU in Big Ten play, but they have failed to cover in three of their last four games.

The other big college hoops showdown is in the Pac-12 between the No. 11 Oregon Ducks and the California Golden Bears. The Ducks are at the top of the heap in that conference at 9-2 SU and they are riding a six-game winning streak both SU and ATS. The Golden Bears hung tough in the first meeting this season in a 68-65 loss to Oregon on the road as 3.5-point underdogs. The total stayed UNDER VietBet’s closing 142.5-point line. Cal has struggled ever since with just three SU win in its last seven games while going 2-5 ATS.

TNT’s featured matchup on Thursday night in the NBA is a Western Conference clash between the New Orleans Pelicans and the Oklahoma City Thunder. It has been a very disappointing run for the Pelicans at 19-32, but they are coming off a 116-102 upset over Minnesota as two-point road underdogs this past Monday. They will play host to Utah this Wednesday night before making the trip to Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Thunder are holding down the third spot in the West at 39-14 and they have gone 13-2 SU in their last 15 games. Unfortunately for bettors along for this recent ride, Oklahoma City is just 6-8-1 ATS over this same stretch of games.
