Daily Sports Betting Preview 11/12/2019: Siding With The Wildcats

  • Eastern Michigan and Akron are both at the bottom of the MAC football standings.
  • After taking over the number 1 ranking, the Wildcats have dominated opponents.
  • In the NBA, the Trailblazers have a history of getting the best of the Kings.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – After a wild finish in the NFL on Monday Night Football, bettors will be looking for any action on Tuesday to keep their streak alive or to help get out of their hole.

Games from many sports will be played but the focus of this daily sports betting preview turns to college football, college basketball, and a late NBA game.

Eastern Michigan Vs. Akron

The Akron Zips are a bad football team. They are 0-9 this year and have only scored nine points in their last four games combined. On Tuesday, the Zips will host the Eastern Michigan Eagles in attempts to gain their first win of the year.

Even in their last three home games, the Zips have struggled – only putting up 10 points over this span. Still, that should stop bettors from taking a chance on the Zips to cover the 17-point spread that they are being given as underdogs.

Eastern Michigan (-850) may be just as bad – going 1-4 in the MAC. As Akron (+635) has won five of the last seven against EMU as well as the last five at home against EMU, bettors shouldn’t be too nervous taking this cover.

Another aspect of this game to look at is the points scored for Akron. While their offensive struggles have been noted, the Eagles have yet to keep an opponent under 14 points all season. As 14 of the 46 projected point total is slated to come from the Zips, bettors may risk the over for the home team’s output.

The game kicks off at 6 p.m. EST and can be seen on ESNN.

Evansville Vs. Kentucky

In the college basketball world, the No. 1 Kentucky Wildcats will play host to the Evansville Purple Aces. The Wildcats are 25-point favorites and there is no reason not to take college basketball’s best team in this situation.

They have proven their abilities against the then number 1 Michigan State Spartans and more recently secured their second win by over 40 points.

With Immanuel Quickley as the focal point of the offense, expect the sophomore guard to distribute the ball to his teammates without many turnovers. If Quickley can hit a few 3-pointers as well – something he has struggled with this year – expect the Wildcats to have another sizeable victory.

Tip-off for the Kentucky basketball game is at 7 p.m. EST, as bettors can tune into SEC Network to watch the event unfold.

Portland Vs. Sacramento

In a 10:05 p.m. EST NBA tipoff, the Portland Trailblazers will visit the Sacramento Kings in attempts to get back on track.

The Trailblazers (-120) are only 2-point favorites in this matchup, despite winning 17 of the last 22 against Sacramento including six of the last seven. With the Kings (EVEN) finally beginning to find their stride this year, it won’t be an easy victory for the Blazers but they should be able to take care of business.

The over-under is set at 223.5 points in the game – something that can easily be met in the early fourth quarter if the 3-point shots are falling for the guards on both teams.

No matter how a bettor decides to wager at their US sportsbook, monitoring the action with live betting and looking for a hedging opportunity would be wise.
