Daily Sports Betting Preview 12/20/2021 – Blue Jackets, Valencia, Grizzlies Odds

  • The Columbus Blue Jackets and Buffalo Sabres are both -110 on the moneyline.
  • Valencia and Levante both have +170 odds on the three-way moneyline.
  • The Memphis Grizzlies are 2.0-point betting favorites in the first quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

BUFFALO - There are sports to bet on throughout the day, each bringing its own set of valuable betting spots.

NHL Odds: Blue Jackets Vs. Sabres

The Columbus Blue Jackets are simply a better team than the Buffalo Sabres and yet online sportsbooks are offering a -110 line on both teams on the moneyline.

Blue Jackets vs Sabres Moneyline Odds

  • Columbus Blue Jackets -110
  • Buffalo Sabres -110

Columbus both scores more and allows fewer goals than Buffalo, making this line a bit confusing. Naturally, it could be because the Blue Jackets are the road team, but the last time these two played on Buffalo’s home ice, the Blue Jackets won 7-4.

Ignoring recency bias and looking at these teams as a whole, it’s easy to see Columbus is the play.

La Liga Odds: Valencia Vs. Levante

It’s not often that Levante has the same betting line as any of their opponents considering they have yet to win this season, but soccer betting sites are doing just that in their matchup against Valencia.

Valencia vs Levante Moneyline Odds

  • Levante +170
  • Valencia +170
  • Draw +220

This is one of those lines that is so confusing it makes you wonder if the sportsbooks know something that the public doesn’t. Valencia is eighth in the La Liga table while Levante sits dead last as the only team in the league without a win.

Betting on a draw might prove beneficial since Levante has drawn over half of their matches, but leaving +170 odds on both of the teams to win is disrespectful to Valencia.

NBA Odds: Grizzlies Vs. Thunder

The Memphis Grizzlies and Oklahoma City Thunder will play one another on Monday night in a game where the first-quarter spread set by NBA betting sites is simply not large enough considering the matchup between the two.

Grizzlies vs Thunder First Quarter Spread

  • Oklahoma City Thunder +2.0 -105
  • Memphis Grizzlies -2.0 -115

Oklahoma City is - and has been for a while - the worst first-quarter team in the NBA. They have a -4.8 average scoring differential in the quarter and it gets even worse when on the road with a -6.7 average scoring margin.

The Grizzlies aren’t the best team as they average just +0.6 points per game in the opening quarter, but are very good on their home floor with a +3.3 average point differential.
