Thursday’s Top Sports Betting Matchups- March 31

George Washington came into the NIT as a No. 4 seed and its road to the NIT Finals went through Monmouth as a two-point road underdog and San Diego State this past Tuesday in a 65-45 romp as a three-point underdog. Valparaiso was a No. 1 seed and it lived up to its lofty status by knocking-off teams such as Florida State, St. Mary’s and BYU on its path to this title game. The Crusaders failed to cover as 2.5-point favorites in Tuesday’s tight 72-70 win against the Cougars in the semifinals and the total stayed UNDER the 148.5-point closing line. VietBet still has this game “off the board” but look for Valpo to open as the favorite.

Turning to the NBA, the first game on TNT’s twin bill at 7 p.m. (ET) pits Chicago on the road against Houston in an inter-conference battle between two teams in desperate need of a win to help their playoff chances. The Bulls snapped a four-game skid with Tuesday’s 98-96 victory against rival Indiana as six-point underdogs to pull within two games of the Pacers for the eighth and final spot in the East. The Rockets got past Cleveland 106-100 as two-point road underdogs on Tuesday night to remain a half-game ahead of Dallas for the final playoff spot in the West.

The late game on TNT features a key showdown between the Los Angeles Clippers and the Oklahoma City Thunder in a 9:30 p.m. start at Chesapeake Energy Arena. This will be the fourth and final meeting in the regular season with the Thunder holding a 2-1 edge straight-up and LA leading the series 2-1 against the spread. Oklahoma City (52-23 SU) is third in the West and a full five games ahead of the Clippers (46-27 SU) in the standings.
