Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- March 3

VietBet remains the best sportsbook for betting on college hoops for US players and one of the big matchups on this Thursday’s betting board is out in the Pac-12 with No. 25 California going on the road to face No. 18 Arizona in a 9 p.m. (ET) tip on ESPN.

Both teams are chasing Oregon for the regular season title in this conference so there is still quite a bit on the line in this game. The Golden Bears bring a seven-game winning streak both straight-up and against the spread into this matchup with the Wildcats trying to snap a SU two-game skid while going just 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Cal won the first meeting this season 74-73 as a 2.5-point home underdog. The total went OVER VietBet’s 145-point line in that game.

In another 9 p.m. start on ESPN2, the No. 24 SMU Mustangs will try and hold on to a share of the lead in the AAC standings when the host Connecticut. The Huskies already knocked-off their conference rivals 68-62 on Feb. 18 as three-point home favorites to hand the Mustangs one of their four SU losses in the AAC this season. SMU has won its last three games SU (2-1 ATS) since that setback and the total has stayed UNDER in its last five outings.

Turning to the pro ranks in the NBA, TNT starts its Thursday night double-header with the San Antonio Spurs going on the road to face the New Orleans Pelicans. The Spurs just completed an eight-game road trip heading into Wednesday’s matchup against Detroit as 11-point home favorites. They went 7-1 SU on that trip with an even 4-4 record ATS. The Pelicans stunned Oklahoma City 123-119 at home on Feb. 25 as 6.5-point underdogs only to lose to Minnesota 112-110 this past Sunday as 2.5-point favorites at home.

TNT’s other contest features a huge showdown in the Western Conference between Oklahoma City and the Golden State Warriors to close-out a recent home-and-home series. The Warriors won the first meeting this past Sunday by a score of 121-118 in a game that ended as a PUSH. Golden State will bring a SU six-game winning streak into this matchup, but it is just 2-3-1 ATS during this same run.
