NDSU vs JMU Spread Odds

  • James Madison Dukes +5.0 -110
  • North Dakota State Bison -5.0 -110

It’s hard to bet against NDSU as they have the best defense in all of FCS that allows just 11.0 points per game. However, James Madison’s defense isn’t too bad themselves as they allow just 15.08 points per game which ranks seventh nationally.

JMU also has one of the countries best offenses as they score 40.2 points per game which is good for fourth in the country.

North Dakota State has allowed a combined 10 points this postseason and their defense should continue to play well enough to cover the 5.0-point spread.

Serie A Odds: Inter Milan Vs. Salernitana

The match between Inter Milan and Salernitana may be the single most lopsided matchup anyone could make from the Serie A schedule. Inter ranks first in the league table while Salternitana is last.

However, the best bet in the game may very well be on the total rather than moneyline or spread.

Inter Milan vs Salernitana Total Odds

  • OVER 3, 3.5 -110
  • UNDER 3, 3.5 -110

Inter is the highest-scoring team in the league with 2.52 goals per game and they will be playing the team that allows the second-most goals per game with 2.17.

Soccer betting sites may be overlooking the capability of Inter Milan to reach four goals themselves in this match. If Salernitana were to add one that would be great, but Inter can take care of this total themselves.

College Basketball Odds: Saint Mary’s Vs. San Diego State

The 10-2 Saint Mary’s Gaels may be getting undervalued in their matchup against the 6-3 San Diego State Aztecs. The Gaels score more and allow fewer points per game, but are still labeled as just a minor favorite.

Saint Mary’s vs San Diego State Spread Odds

  • Saint Mary’s Gaels -3.0 -110
  • San Diego State Aztecs +3.0 -110

San Diego State ranks 297th in the country in field goal percentage (41.1%) while Saint Mary’s holds opposing teams to just 40.12% shooting from the floor.

The Aztecs struggle as it is to get points on the board, but now they’re playing one of the better defenses in the country that should limit their opportunities even more than usual. College basketball betting sites may have miscalculated this line by a good margin.
