LONDON – There are ample opportunities to make a profit while betting on sports on Wednesday. Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are set to meet in the 2nd leg of their EFL Cup match.

Chelsea leads the aggregate scoring 2-0 entering the match and online sportsbooks are expecting a similar outcome on Wednesday as well.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Moneyline Odds

  • Tottenham Hotspur +235
  • Chelsea +120
  • Draw +235

It is worth noting that Chelsea doesn’t have to try to put goals on the board as they’re already leading in aggregate. There’s no question as to which is the better team as the Premier League table shows Chelsea at the top, but it is likely worth betting the Draw as they will be playing more conservatively.

The two have drawn twice in their last five head-to-head matches including just a few months ago in August.

College Basketball Odds: Villanova Wildcats Vs. Xavier Musketeers

The similarities between the Villanova Wildcats and Xavier Musketeers are glaring. They’re ranked near each other, they both score and allow similar points per game, but the difference is the opponents which they’ve faced.

According to Ken Pomeroy, Villanova has the third-toughest strength of schedule while Xavier has had the 56th-toughest schedule to this point.

Villanova vs Xavier Moneyline Odds

  • Villanova Wildcats -105
  • Xavier Musketeers -115

College basketball betting sites are offering the more tested, proven and overall impressive team with underdog odds in this spot. Given that the Wildcats have put up similar numbers against such a higher level of competition, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them dominate the game from start to finish.

NHL Odds: Grand Salami Total 18.5 Goals

The NHL has just three games on the slate, so it’s much easier to bet on the Grand Salami than usual. For those who don’t know, a Grand Salami is betting on the total of all of the games of a given day.

On Wednesday, the UNDER seems to be carrying value.

NHL Grand Salami Odds

  • OVER 18.5 EVEN
  • UNDER 18.5 -120

Without even going into the individual matchups, the odds themselves seem to be leaning in favor of the UNDER as all three games have totals of 6.0 goals. Two of the three games have the UNDER favored with -120 odds while the other is an even -110/-110 split.

Plus, the Montreal Canadiens and Arizona Cayotes are the two lowest-scoring teams in the NHL while the Seattle Kraken and Dallas Stars are also in the bottom half of the league in goals per game. Everything is pointing towards the UNDER being the best bet on NHL betting sites.
