LAS VEGAS - Welcome to this Tuesday edition of the Daily Sports Betting Preview.

For this edition, the focus starts out on NFL Football, as the Baltimore Ravens take on the Dallas Cowboys.

Then, in the Champions League, Barcelona clashes with Juventus in a momentous match. Finally, the CS:GO Blast Premier Fall pits Vitality against Mousesports and NaVI against Astralis.

There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started!

NFL Tuesday Betting

The Baltimore Ravens and Dallas Cowboys are set to face off on a Tuesday night due to COVID complications.

This game was moved to Tuesday after the Ravens’ previous game was delayed significantly due to COVID.

The Baltimore Ravens are 6-5 and expect to have QB Lamar Jackson back from the COVID-19 reserve list for this game. The Dallas Cowboys are 3-8, which means they are still technically in contention to win the NFC East.

However, they will need to pick up a win in order to try to keep pace with the New York Giants and Washington Football Team, who are now both at 5-7.

There are a couple of interesting player performance doubles available on some of the online sportsbooks such as Amari Cooper to have 80+ receiving yards and DAL to Win at +575 odds.

First things first, Dallas has +280 odds to win the game, so the bulk of the value here is coming from Cooper’s yardage.

With the injury to Dak Prescott, Cooper has fallen from an elite receiver to a fairly mediocre one, through no fault of his own.

The Dallas offense has a lot of weapons between Cooper, Michael Gallup, Ezekiel Elliot, and CeeDee Lamb.

A quarterback like Andy Dalton will struggle to feed all of them at the same time.

However, Cooper has broken 80 yards in his last two games, against Minnesota as well as Washington. This wager could be a good moneyline alternative.

Lamar Jackson to have 2+ passing TDs and BAL to Win at +131 odds is another NFL player prop at BetOnline.

Lamar Jackson has regressed as a passer, but he’s still been able to connect for touchdowns in the air.

In two of Jackson’s last four games he has put multiple air touchdowns on the board, against the Patriots and the Steelers. However, against the Titans and the Colts, he was unable to reach two passing TDs.

The Cowboys defense is notably worse than any of the defenses Lamar has played against in those games.

That said, that could mean that the game script favors running over passing after a certain point, which would be bad for this wager.

NFL bettors certainly have a lot to consider when it comes to wagering on this intriguing Tuesday matchup.

FC Barcelona vs. Juventus

Barcelona is set to face off against Juventus in a matchup of teams with high level talent and reputations to match.

Barcelona are struggling this season, with a record of 4-2-4 in La Liga, and sit in ninth place.

Juventus are having a bit of a weird season - they’re 4th place in Serie A, but they have not lost a match yet, with a 5-5-0 record.

Barcelona, despite the slow start, are favored on the three way moneyline.

Barcelona vs. Juventus

  • Barcelona +105
  • Juventus +230
  • Draw +280

Barcelona’s +105 three way moneyline odds are amplified on the no draw moneyline:

Barcelona vs. Juventus

  • Barcelona -180
  • Juventus +135

On the three way moneyline, Barcelona are favorites at -105, but on the no draw moneyline, they sit at -180. Juventus, meanwhile, moves from +230 on the three way to +135 on the no draw.

Interestingly, here is what the spread looks like when set at Barcelona -0.5.

Barcelona vs. Juventus

  • Barcelona -0.5 +105
  • Juventus +0.5 -145

The bet to focus on here is Juventus +0.5 at -145, which is effectively rolling up the bottom two wagers on the three way moneyline into one bet.

It will be up to a given soccer bettor which way they want to approach this matchup.

CS:GO Blast Premier Fall

The CS:GO Blast Premier Fall brings some solid matchups to the table today as Vitality battles Mousesports and NaVI faces off against Astralis.

Vitality vs. Mousesports

  • Vitality -200
  • Mousesports +150

Vitality is largely regarded as the best CS:GO team in the world right now, ranked first in the world at the moment.

They would be favored against nearly anyone, and even though Mousesports are ranked 13th, Vitality are significantly favored.

The teams have only ever played twice this year, with each team winning once. The most recent clash was on October 20th, and Vitality 2-0d Mousesports.

The spread, which in CS:GO betting is almost always +/- 1.5, serves as a proxy for betting on whether the match will end 2-0 in favor of the favorite or any other outcome.

Vitality vs. Mousesports

  • Vitality -1.5 (+165)
  • Mousesports +1.5 (-220)

In this sense, Mousesports are at least reasonably favored to avoid the 2-0 defeat to Vitality.

Natus Vincere vs. Astralis.

  • NaVi +125
  • Astralis -165

The second match of the day pits NaVi against Astralis, with Astralis as the notable betting favorites straight up.

This is a matchup between the third and fourth ranked teams in the world, but NaVi, the higher ranked of the two, are unfavored.

Interestingly, NaVi have won four of their five matches against Astralis in the current season, and that seems quite interesting in the context of the odds.

NaVi might be a good play for esports bettors today.

Happy Betting!
