- Two NBA games tonight could allow for road underdogs to surprise the home team.
- The USC Trojans will likely beat the Colorado Buffaloes with the help of their defense.
- As the CFL’s regular season is coming to an end, look for playoff teams to get the job done.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – After a Thursday Night Football matchup that came out as expected, many are looking to use their winnings on tonight’s action.
New York Knicks Vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Nets (-8) come into this game as the obvious favorite over a team that was at one point projected to land the stars that ended up in Brooklyn. Kevin Durant will obviously not be playing but Kyrie Irving will look to bring the first win to the Nets’ organization this year.
The Knicks (+300) have loads of young talent and there is the possibility that they take care of business at Barclay’s Center.
Taking the odds on the Knicks would provide an excellent hedging opportunity during live betting, as road underdogs are 8-4 to start the NBA season.
When the NBA season is this early on, the teams that are bad don’t know how bad they are, and the teams that are good are in the same boat. With this, many “upsets” can happen to start the season, so take the chance and bet the Knicks.
Tune in to MSG or YES to see the Knicks and Nets game which tips off at 7:30 p.m. EST.
Phoenix Suns Vs. Denver Nuggets
Anytime you come across this game, betting the Nuggets would be a wise choice. However, following the same trend, look for the Suns (+625) to at least cover their 12-point underdog status.
The Suns won their first game of the year and could find a way to make this an interesting game against the Nuggets. These teams did play in Game 2 of the NBA season last year as well, but the Nuggets won but almost 30 points.
With the Suns making improvements during the offseason, don’t expect this team to fold over as it has in the past.
Tip-off for the Suns and Nuggets came is at 9 p.m. EST and can be seen on local networks such as FOX Sports Arizona or streaming services like NBA League Pass.

USC Trojans Vs. Colorado Buffaloes
According to the ESPN Football Power Index, the Trojans (-425) have an 82.1% chance to win this matchup.
However, the offensive firepower of Colorado could pose a problem for the Trojans. Their defense is allowing only 24 points per game but Colorado (+355) is averaging roughly a field goal more.
If the Buffaloes can make some stops regarding the Trojans’ passing attack, Colorado may be able to get the job done. Still, the safe money is taking USC -11, and parlaying that with the over (64) might be an easy way to increase the payout.
The game begins at 9 p.m. EST and can be seen on ESP2.
Calgary Stampeders Vs. Winnipeg Blue Bombers
While many are unfamiliar with the CFL, this is the perfect time to risk a wager on a football league that isn’t the NFL or NCAA. This weekend marks the second-last week of the regular season, and the prime-time game tonight comes with an interesting situation.
The Blue Bombers (+120) are known to get it done at home, as they are 7-1 at home. On the flip side, the Stampeders are 4-3 on the road but come in with one of the best records in the CFL.
While many may jump on the home team Blue Bombers’ moneyline or spread (+3), the recommendation comes at taking Calgary (-140) on the moneyline or even to win by a field goal.
But if bettors are unsure about which way this game will unfold, putting a small risk on the under (48) may be the better choice at an online US sportsbook.
The Stampedes travel to Winnipeg tonight for an 8:30 p.m. EST kickoff.
