AUBURN, Ala. - With college basketball, NHL and Premier League action on Wednesday, bettors have their hands full with handicapping the day’s slate of sports.

College Basketball Odds: No. 16 LSU Tigers Vs. No. 11 Auburn Tigers

The LSU Tigers and Auburn Tigers will face off in a ranked college basketball matchup on Wednesday night. Although LSU is the underdog on online sportsbooks they may have a good chance at pulling off the upset.

LSU vs Auburn Moneyline Odds

  • LSU Tigers +160
  • Auburn Tigers -185

LSU currently has the second-best defense in the country with 54.1 points allowed per game. Admittedly, they haven’t had the toughest of schedules but holding any group of 12 teams to 54 points per game is an accomplishment.

Regardless of the competition, LSU has the best field-goal percentage defense in all of college basketball at 33.835% as the only team to hold opponents under 35% shooting. Considering Auburn ranks 165th in the nation in field-goal percentage, it’s easy to see why LSU may give them issues.

NHL Odds: Washington Capitals Vs. Nashville Predators

It’s no secret that the Washington Capitals are among the best teams in the league. That’s what makes their moneyline on NHL betting sites so appealing as they’re only a minor favorite against a seemingly inferior team, the Nashville Predators.

Capitals vs Predators Moneyline Odds

  • Nashville Predators +135
  • Washington Capitals -160

The Capitals have a top offense in the NHL with their 3.42 goals per game which rank fifth in the league. Their defense also holds its own weight, ranking sixth in the league with just 2.58 goals allowed per game. Nashville is worse on both sides of the puck, making Washington an easy pick on the moneyline in this game.

Premier League Odds: Chelsea Vs. Brighton

Chelsea and Brighton & Hove Albion are at different spots in the Premier League, but the two are more than capable of combining for three or more goals. Soccer betting sites may be overestimating Brighton’s ability to dictate the game.

Chelsea vs Brighton Total Odds

  • OVER 2.5 -122
  • UNDER 2.5 +102

Brighton is often in lower scoring games as they’ve scored just 16 and allowed just 17 goals on the season, that’s the second-fewest total goals in the entire league.

Chelsea, on the other hand, has scored 42 goals themselves while allowing 13 on the season. It’s very unlikely that Brighton scores, but very possible Chelsea nets three or more themselves. Only two teams have scored more often than Chelsea, so it's a good offensive attack to bet on.
