Basketball Betting Lines and Matchups: Feb. 14
Tonight marks the final night before the NBA All-Star Break and we start with the game of the year. There's also two gigantic college games in the Big 10 and the traditional matchup in the West Coast Conference. That's Gonzaga at St. Mary's in late night action. The betting opportunities are here for the taking.
Let's get going!
Miami (35-14 SU, 25-24 ATS, 25-24 O/U) at Oklahoma City (39-13 SU, 31-19-2 ATS, 27-25 O/U)
Last game (12/25/12) MIAMI (-2.5) over Oklahoma City, 103-97. This is a revenge game for the Thunder, not only because of the first game they played this year, but after getting beat in last year's Finals. Oklahoma City lost to Utah, 109-94 on Tuesday giving 5.5. on the road. Miami has won six straight and covered the last three. LeBron James is playing out of this world right now. Miami is 5-0 ATS last 5 in series. Pro Hoops Line: Oklahoma City is a 5-point favorite. Total: 204.5.
#19 Wisconsin (17-7 SU, 8-14 ATS) at Minnesota (17-7 SU, 13-9 ATS)
Last game: (1/26/13) WISCONSIN (-3.5) over Minnesota, 45-44. Wisconsin has won three straight games, including an overtime win over Michigan on Saturday, 65-62 getting 2 at home. That's after beating Iowa by four in overtime, giving 8.5. Minnesota has lost two straight and at 5-6 in the Big Ten, they really need this win. They fell at home to Illinois, 57-53, giving 8.5 on Sunday. Minnesota is 6-2 ATS last 8 in series. College Basketball Odds: Minnesota is a 5-point favorite. Total: 118.5.
#5 Gonzaga (23-2 SU, 12-10-1 ATS) at St. Mary's (21-4 SU, 12-9-1 ATS)
Last game: (1/10/13) GONZAGA (-9) over St. Mary's, 83-78. This is rivalry week and these two teams have played some classic games over the years. Gonzaga has won six straight and should be a lock for the NCAA Tournament. St. Mary's is close to being a lock after winning nine straight. A win against the Zags would put them over the top. The Gaels defeated San Diego on the road, 74-64, giving 10 on the road on Saturday. Gonzaga is 5-11-2 ATS last 18 road games. Hoops Odds: Gonzaga is a 1-point favorite. Total: 142.
