Daily Sports Betting Preview 12/22/2021 – EFL Cup, NBA, Armed Forces Bowl

  • Chelsea is an EVEN money favorite against Brentford in the EFL Cup quarterfinals.
  • The Cleveland Cavaliers are a 1.5-point underdog in the first quarter against the Boston Celtics.
  • The total for the Army Black Knights and Missouri Tigers bowl game is set at 54.0 with -110 odds on both sides.

LONDON - Chelsea, the Cleveland Cavaliers and the UNDER in the Armed Forces Bowl are among the best bets of the day across the Wednesday slate.

One of the EFL Cup quarterfinal matches is between Chelsea and Brentford. Despite the odds showing a lopsided matchup, online sportsbooks provide the favorite with a good price on the three-way moneyline.

Chelsea vs Brentford Moneyline Odds

  • Brentford +280
  • Chelsea EVEN
  • Draw +230

These teams played about two months ago and Chelsea was able to get away with a 1-0 win and a similar result could be in store on Wednesday. Chelsea is third in the Premier League in big chances created (41) while Brentford ranks 15th (17).

In every aspect of the game, Brentford simply can’t compete with Chelsea’s talent. With plus-money value, Chelsea is a solid moneyline bet.

NBA Odds: Cavaliers Vs. Celtics First-Quarter Spread

The Cavaliers and Boston Celtics are scheduled to play one another on Wednesday night. Although Cleveland is the underdog on NBA betting sites, there is a specific spot where they may be the better team.

Cavaliers vs Celtics First-Quarter Spread

  • Cleveland Cavaliers +1.5 -110
  • Boston Celtics -1.5 -110

The Cavs are the No. 1 team in the league in first quarter scoring margin (+4.1) and are underdogs despite the Celtics being the 22nd-best team with a -1.4 average scoring margin. Cleveland could very well win the first-quarter straight up, but taking the extra point and a half should prove beneficial as the safer pick.

Plus, the Cavaliers have been performing even better than usual as of late with a +10.7 average differential over their last three games.

Armed Forces Bowl Odds: Army Vs. Missouri

The Army Black Knights and Missouri Tigers will play in the Armed Forces Bowl. Army is expected to win the game as a touchdown favorite, but college football betting sites may be leaving the most value on the total.

Army vs Missouri Total Odds

  • OVER 54.0 -110
  • UNDER 54.0 -110

Army rushes on 86.06% of their plays which is the second-highest rate in college football. Plus, Missouri has adapted to a rush-first team as they’ve run on 61.97% of their plays over their last three games.

The clock should be moving throughout this game which should make it difficult for the teams to hit the OVER in this spot.
