This Week's Best Spot Bet Opportunities

Letdown spot

On Saturday, Oklahoma will host Kansas. That's a huge game for the Sooners, as those teams are battling for top spot in the Big 12. Additionally, the Sooners will be looking to avenge an earlier loss at Kansas. That wasn't just any loss either; as it was a triple-OT heartbreaker.

Off that big "revenge" game, the Sooners may have a letdown in their next game, which will be at Texas Tech. After all, they beat the Red Raiders by 24 when the teams played on 1/26.

Lookahead spot

Regularly two of the top teams in the Metro Atlantic Conference, Siena and Iona have long been rivals. Last season, Iona won all three meetings. The Gaels took both regular season meetings and then knocked the Saints out of the MAAC Tournament.

Saturday will be this season's first meeting between Iona and Siena and its a game which the Saints have had circled. On Thursday, Siena will host Canisius. Considering that the Saints already beat the Golden Griffins by 21 points, at Canisius, it should be easy to look ahead to Saturday's showdown. Canisisus snapped a losing streak last time out and will be looking for some redemption after getting embarrassed earlier. Take a look at the Golden Griffins as a road underdog on Thursday.

Schedule spot

The Nashville Predators are an ugly 10-23 (-12.6) when playing the second of b2b games the past few years, including 1-6 this season. They were dominated in those games too, getting outscored by a combined 25-10 margin. Five of the six losses came by multiple goals.

Part of the reason, perhaps, for the Preds' problems in b2b spots is a tendency to give #1 goalie Rinne the night off. He's only played b2b games once this season.

The Preds play Friday night and then again on Saturday at Florida. While the Panthers will also be playing their second game in two nights, they've been much better than Nasvhille in that situation. The last time that the Panthers played a home game, after playing the previous night, they knocked off Tampa by a 5-2 score. Consider Florida on Saturday night.
