NORMAN, Okla. – With the long Thanksgiving week approaching, there are plenty of opportunities for sports bettors to take action. Because many of the colleges get out of school early during this week, the college basketball betting action on Tuesday is comparable to the March Madness tournament.
With over five dozen college basketball games on the slate, the matchup between the Missouri Tigers and Oklahoma Sooners should be one of the best of the night. Aside from the college basketball matchups, the NBA has a duo of games – including a showdown between the LA Clippers and Dallas Mavericks – and the NHL will feature a Central Division battle between the Dallas Stars and Chicago Blackhawks.
This sports betting preview only covers these three contests; however, the ITF Women Nonthaburi Tournament, UEFA Champions League, and Mosconi Cup 2019 Game all have betting action as well at various offshore sports betting sites.
2019 Hall of Fame Classic
This tournament, though played in Kansas City, is calling Oklahoma the home team over Missouri. The Sooners are two-point underdogs in the consolation game.
The Sooners were blown out by Stanford last night 73-54 in what was their first loss of the year. For the Tigers, they lost their first neutral-site game of the season in a 63-52 loss to Butler.
If the Tigers want to continue on their season’s success, they will rely heavily on Mark Smith and his 3-point shooting ability. As he has attempted 29% of his team’s three-point shots, don’t expect the Tigers (-135) to run away with a victory over the Sooners (+115).
Oklahoma plays with a much faster pace than Missouri, which will make betting the over-under (131.5 points) slightly more difficult. If Missouri can keep their pace, the under will likely hit; however, if Austin Reaves starts to get on fire, the Tigers will not be able to keep up the scoring output.
Starting at 7 p.m. EST, the Missouri and Oklahoma game will be broadcasted on ESPN before it switches to the championship game of the tournament between Butler and Stanford.

Though the Blackhawks are not really having as much success as they had hoped for, the season is still young. The Stars have been on the opposite end of the spectrum, winning their last seven to go 9-0-1 over their last 10 games.
Despite the hot streak, the Stars (-115) are only slight favorites over the Blackhawks (EVEN). Chicago is 6-5-2 at home, so their certainty to pull out a victory here isn’t guaranteed. As for the Stars, they are 6-5-1 on the road, helping them attain their second-place seeding in the division.
On the puck line, the Stars (-1.5, +220) aren’t expected to win by two or more goals. However, as the Stars have currently tied their franchise-record winning streak, bettors may be considering to lay the risk for the heightened odds. During their seven-game streak, the Stars have won five of the matches by two or more goals, so it certainly isn’t unfeasible.
The puck drops at 8 p.m. EST and the game can be viewed on NBCS.
NBA Superstars In Action
When it comes to the NBA, the stars are always the focus of the show. At 8:35 p.m. EST, the LA Clippers will travel to Dallas to take on the Mavericks. Dallas (+125) is an underdog at home, but the recent play of Luka Doncic should not make any bettor feel like taking the Clippers is a good decision.
Still, Los Angeles (-145) has Kawhi Leonard and Paul George on their roster, but oddsmakers at US sportsbooks are only favoring the Clippers by 2.5 points.
With an over-under set at 226.5, this can fall either way, however, the under may be the play here. Both teams allow less than 110 points per game, which may be the final result if the game’s pace gets slowed down.
No matter how this battle plays out, live betting should be considered due to the ability of these teams to go on long scoring runs. Tune in to NBATV to watch this game.
