Today’s Odds Boosts at DraftKings
Soccer: Alexandre Lacazette to score & Arsenal to Win
+700 to +760
Lacazette is second on the team with five goals this season but he hasn’t scored since early December. Arsenal is a big underdog against Chelsea as well.
Soccer: Manchester City & Aston Villa both to win
+328 to +380
Manchester City is a favorite while Aston Villa is a small underdog at home.
NBA: Luka Doncic to record a triple-double & Mavericks to Win
+420 to +485
Doncic has three triple-doubles this month and the Mavericks are small favorites in this game. Doncic will need a big game if the Mavs want to win against the Clippers.
NCAAB: Villanova & Kansas Jayhawks & Kentucky all to win
-135 to -110
Kentucky is a big 11.5-point favorite at home against Georgia, Villanova is a four-point favorite at home against a now struggling Butler and Kansas is a huge 15.5-point favorite at home against Kansas State. This bet should come down to just the Villanova game with Kentucky and Kansas cruising. Basically getting Villanova at -110 on the moneyline is a solid boost.
NHL: Artemi Panarin & Mathew Barzal each to score a goal – Including OT
+550 to +630
Barzal has 17 goals this season but has just one since Christmas. Panarin leads the team with 26 goals and has four over the last six games.
Today’s Best Bet at DraftKings Sportsbook
Miami (FL) vs #8 Duke (-17.5) – 9:00 PM
The Miami (FL) Hurricanes (10-7) take on the Duke Blue Devils (15-3) tonight at Cameroon Indoor. Miami is coming off of an OT loss to now #5 Florida State. Duke was upset by #11 Louisville at home on Saturday, losing 79-73.
Miami’s offense has been decent this season as they are 148th in points scored per game. They are solid shooting from the field (112th) and even better shooting from three (74th). The Hurricanes are also a decent team shooting from the line (134th). The Miami defense, however, is not very good. Miami is 278th in the country in points allowed per game. They struggle defending from the field (277th) and from deep (210th). Rebounding has also been an issue for the Hurricanes this season.
Duke has lost their last two games but this is still a very good team. The Blue Devils are seventh in the country in points scored per game. They are a very good shooting team that is 13th in FG% and 60th in 3PT%. The one issue they have shooting is from the line as they are just 275th in FT%. Duke’s defense is pretty solid this season as well. The Blue Devils are 65th in points allowed per game. They are 158th in opponent FG% and 101st in opponent 3PT%.
After a great performance against a very tough Florida State team, many bettors may be taking Miami in this spot. Add in Duke coming off of back-to-back losses and that bet may seem even smarter. However, Coach K will have this team ready to rebound tonight in a big way. While they didn’t play their best in their last home game, Duke will be looking to blow the doors open in this one and prove that they are indeed still one of the best teams in the country. Expect Duke to keep their foot on the gas in this game as they get a blowout win and cover in this game. The formula has Duke winning this one 87-66.
