Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

We have a busy Tuesday in the world of sports. A full 15-game schedule in Major League Baseball is highlighted by an ESPN showdown between the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. There are also 11 games on the NBA slate plus a pair of NHL contests. Let’s take a look at where the betting money has gone so far.



 NBA: Dallas Mavericks -2 over Memphis Grizzlies

Per DraftKings, the public is all over the Dallas Mavericks in their road game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night. An overwhelming 98 percent of the handle plus 83 percent of the bets are backing Dallas to cover the -2 spread. Punters also like the over in this matchup, with 89 percent of the money and 76 percent of the wagers taking Over 226.5

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers ML over Indiana Pacers

Another popular play is on the Philadelphia 76ers in their road date with the Indiana Pacers. Philadelphia on the -278 money line is inspiring 90 percent of the handle and 88 percent of the bets. Bettors are also enthusiastic about the -6.5 point spread; 89 percent of the money and 86 percent of the wagers are on the Timberwolves to cover.

NBA: Denver Nuggets vs. Charlotte Hornets Over 220.5

When it comes to game totals, the public is intrigued by the over in Tuesday’s matchup between the Denver Nuggets and Charlotte Hornets. A whopping 95 percent of the money and 91 percent of the bets are calling for a high-scoring contest that features more than 220.5 points. For what it’s worth, there is also a lot of love for the Nuggets. They are getting 88 percent of the handle and 83 percent of the bets on the -6 point spread.

We like the over in this matchup, as well, but Denver -6 is one of our best NBA bets of the day.

Michael Porter Jr Nuggets

NHL: Vancouver Canucks vs. Winnipeg Jets Under 5.5

Bettors’ favorite NHL play of the day is on the under is this meeting between the Vancouver Canucks and Winnipeg Jets. A total of 73 percent of the money and 71 percent of the wagers are hoping that no more than five goals are scored. An over/under of 5.5 is obviously on the small side for a hockey game, but the public still isn’t scared. There is also some confidence being shown in the Jets, who are getting 70 percent of the handle on the -1.5 puck line and 77 percent of the handle on the -175 money line.

MLB: San Francisco Giants -1.5 over Texas Rangers

On the baseball diamond, the public likes the San Francisco Giants in their home game against the Texas Rangers. San Francisco on the -1.5 run line is inspiring 76 percent of the handle and 75 percent of the bets. The over is also a trend pick in this matchup; 86 percent of the money is being thrown on Over 8.
