NBA Odds: Dallas Mavericks Vs. Portland Trail Blazers

The Mavericks will play the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night and in their game, the first-quarter moneyline odds provided by online sportsbooks seem to carry a fair amount of value.

Mavericks vs Trail Blazers First Quarter Moneyline Odds

  • Dallas Mavericks -110
  • Portland Trail Blazers -110

Dallas is the eighth-best first-quarter team in the country with a +1.2 average scoring margin while the Trail Blazers rank 23rd with a -1.3 average point differential. Despite the 2.5-point difference between the two teams, the two have the same odds on the moneyline.

Portland is 25th in points scored per first quarter while the Mavericks have the third-best first-quarter scoring defense.

Portland should struggle to get points on the board in this game.

College Basketball Odds: Syracuse Vs. Brown

The college basketball slate is fairly weak with only a few games in total, but the most intriguing of them all is between Syracuse and the Brown Bears. College basketball betting sites are calling the Orange a 10-point favorite but they may not deserve a double-digit line.

Syracuse vs Brown Spread Odds

  • Brown Bears +10.0 -115
  • Syracuse Orange -10.0 -105

Each of Syracuse’s last three wins has been by fewer than 10 points while only one of Brown’s five losses has been by more than 10 points.

The Orange are 167th in the country in shooting percentage at 44.4% which makes it difficult to cover such a large number. If Brown was able to limit their loss to the UNC Tar Heels to seven points, Syracuse may follow a similar fate.

Premier League Odds: Manchester United Vs. Newcastle United

Two teams at the opposite ends of the Premier League table are set to play one another as Manchester United and Newcastle United will play on Monday afternoon.

Man U ranks first in the Premier League while Newcastle sits second-to-last. In the game, soccer betting sites have the total set at an easily achievable number.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United Total Odds

  • OVER 3.0 -115
  • UNDER 3.0 -105

Man U is tied for the most goals in the league (50) and Newcastle has allowed the most goals of any club (41). Even though Newcastle United is 19th of the 20 teams in the standings, they’ve scored the 15th most goals.

There’s a good chance that Man U hits this total themselves given the matchup and if Newcastle were to add a goal it would be a significant game changer.
