Sunday’s Best ESPN BET Bets: Seton Hall-UConn, Pacers-Spurs, Penguins-Oilers

Published

on

What looked to be a winning day for the Winning Picks turned into tragedy, finishing 1-2. Pitt was our only winner, as they blew out Boston College as short favorites. I told you there was something funny about that line. My opponent bet of the over in Duquesne/George Mason never got home as the Dukes won a lower scoring affair. The Penguins blew a 3-1 in the third period and lost a goal with under a minute left. We moved to 178-137-3 on the year.

The Pens will play the Oilers tonight, we will get to that pick later, but for now I want to discuss the Stanley Cup odds for this year. Those mentioned Oilers currently have the lowest odds to win the Cup at +800. However, there are four others with odds under 10/1 including Colorado (+850), Florida (+850), Boston (+900) and Carolina (+900).

I have never seen Stanley Cup odds this log jammed at this point in the season. It is pretty much anyone’s race at this point. If you think Vegas can go back-to-back, they are 14/1. I would say the Cup is pretty wide open. I do have small bets on the Oilers and Panthers to win it, but truthfully, I have no idea how the playoffs will turn out. In my opinion, once the playoff positions are set in April, I would fire on the team that is the hottest with the best route to win it all.

Seton Hall at UConn Huskies (-14.5) O/U 138.5 12:00 PM on CBS

The cupboard is pretty barren today for college basketball, but we do get the #1 UConn hosting Seton Hall today in Hartford. This is another revenge game for the Huskies as the Pirates knocked them off back in December in New Jersey. Will UConn get their revenge today?

The Huskies are clearly one of the top teams in the country this year. I believe them and Houston have the best chance to win it all this year, depending on their route they are given for the tournament. Seton Hall needs this game to keep their hopes to make the Big Dance alive. Still, I believe UConn will be too much for the Pirates today and they will cover at home today.

Indiana Pacers (-6.5) at San Antonio Spurs O/U 242.5 7:00 PM

Despite Victor Wembanyama looking like the next NBA superstar, the Spurs have not been a good team this year. This team will need to be completely retooled in the coming seasons to surround Wemby with talent that suits him. As for today’s matchup, they face one of the highest scoring teams in the NBA in the Pacers.

Indiana has way too much scoring for the Spurs to have a chance. San Antonio did beat one of the top teams in the West at home in the Thunder last week, but that is a familiar opponent and Wemby has balled out when he has faced fellow big man Chet Holmgren this year. The Pacers will score at will today and get the cover on the road.

Pittsburgh Penguins at Edmonton Oilers (-190) O/U 6.5 9:00 PM on SportsNet Pittsburgh

Even when the Penguins find the back of the net and get a lead, they find a way to lose. There is nothing that can fix this team at this point. No matter how much Sidney Crosby tries, his effort is not supported by his teammates especially Evgeni Malkin, who is on pace to have one of the worst seasons of his Hall of Fame career. In my opinion, Malkin is washed.

Facing Edmonton, it will be tough for the Pens to stop the Oilers attack. Playing one of the top scoring teams in the NHL is already tough, but on a back-to-back it is even tougher. Tonight, I like the over to cover in a high scoring game that the Penguins will lose again.
