Daily Sports Betting Preview 01/18/2022 – Texas Tech, Aslan Karatsev, Florida Panthers Odds

  • The Texas Tech Red Raiders and Iowa State Cyclones have a 130.0 betting total.
  • Aslan Karatsev has -115 odds to cover the 3.0-game spread against Mackenzie McDonald.
  • The Florida Panthers are just -145 betting favorites against the Calgary Flames.

LUBBOCK, Texas - Bettors have options on Tuesday as there are ranked college basketball games, Australian Open matches as well as NHL action.

College Basketball Odds: No. 18 Texas Tech Vs. No. 15 Iowa State

Two ranked Big 12 teams are set to face one another on Tuesday as the Iowa State Cyclones travel to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The odds favor Texas Tech, but the best bet on online sportsbooks is likely on the total for the game.

Texas Tech vs Iowa State Total Odds

  • OVER 130.0 -110
  • UNDER 130.0 -110

Yes, the total is very low. However, it may not be low enough.

Texas Tech and Iowa State are among the top five defensive teams in adjusted defensive efficiency and have the 310th and 200th fastest adjusted tempo as well. There are simply going to be very few possessions in this game and the elite defenses should do a good enough job preventing points in those limited possessions.

Australian Open Odds: Aslan Karatsev Vs. Mackenzie McDonald

Aslan Karatsev has been playing extremely well this season and yet tennis betting sites continue to undervalue him, nonetheless to an inferior opponent in Mackenzie McDonald.

Karatsev vs McDonald Spread Odds

  • Mackenzie McDonald +3.0 -115
  • Aslan Karatsev -3.0 -115

This season, Karatsev has won an impressive 90% of his service games as well as 32% of his games on return. Compared to McDonald’s 78% win rate on serve and 18% win rate on return this year, a 3.0-game spread is insulting to Karatsev who made it to the semifinals of this tournament last year.

NHL Odds: Florida Panthers Vs. Calgary Flames

Those betting on the NHL can find the Florida Panthers as just a minor favorite over the Calgary Flames. Since the Panthers have been so dominant, a -145 betting line seems rather generous.

Panthers vs Flames Moneyline Odds

  • Florida Panthers -145
  • Calgary Flames +125

The Panthers average the second-most goals per game and have the best goal differential in the NHL. Plus, the Flames are just 4-4-4 at home this season, showing it’s not much of an advantage to play on their home ice.
