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 are well into the first week of 2022, and even though there is no NFL on Tuesday’s schedule, there is still plenty of action in the sports world. The penultimate college football game of the season is kicking off, while we also have lots of games in the NBA, NHL, and college basketball.

Let’s take a look at where the public money has gone so far on Tuesday.

NBA: Phoenix Suns -7 over New Orleans Pelicans

One of bettors’ favorite plays on the NBA slate is on Phoenix to cover a 7-spread at New Orleans. The Suns are bringing in 99 percent of the handle and 95 percent of the bets. They are also getting hammered on the -290 money line; on that market Phoenix is being backed by 96 percent of the handle and 76 percent of the wagers.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies vs Cleveland Cavaliers Over 217.5

Bettors are also backing the over in Memphis’ visit to Cleveland. A public over is about as normal as blue sky, so it’s no surprise that the public wants to see a lot of points in this one. The over is drawing 99 percent of the money and 92 percent of the bets. Bettors also love the Grizzlies; they are inspiring 85 percent of the handle and 81 percent of the wagers on the +3 spread. The visitors are also getting 94 percent of the handle and 63 percent of the wagers on the +125 money line.

NHL: Colorado Avalanche -1.5 over Chicago Blackhawks

Bettors’ favorite NHL play is on the Avalanche on the -1.5 puck line in their road game against the Blackhawks. Colorado is being backed by 98 percent of the money and 89 percent of the wagers to win by multiple goals. The public is also happy to incur the -230 juice and bet on the Avs to win straight up. They are drawing 86 percent of the handle and 92 percent of the money line bets.

NHL: Winnipeg Jets ML over Arizona Coyotes

There is also a lot of faith in the Jets, who are paying a visit to the Coyotes. Winnipeg on the -200 money line is inspiring 97 percent of the handle and 93 percent of the wagers. You can get a better payout on the -1.5 puck line, of course, and the public is also more than willing to go in that direction. The Jets are getting 83 percent of the money and 88 percent of the bets to prevail by multiple goals.

NCAAB: Kansas Jayhawks -6.5 over Oklahoma State Cowboys

There is a sizable slate of college basketball on Tuesday, and no game is drawing more extreme attention than Kansas at Oklahoma State. Is 6.5 points enough for the Cowboys? Bettors certainly don’t think so. They are hammering the Jayhawks to the tune of 81 percent of the money and 91 percent of the bets against the spread. On the -265 money line, KU is getting an even more overwhelming 99 percent of the handle and 96 percent of the bets.
