9:00 AM PACIFIC: EARLY TOP 25 SHOWDOWN BETWEEN NO. 21 OHIO STATE, NO. 14 ILLINOIS

The No. 21 Ohio State Buckeyes will take on the No. 14 Illinois Fighting Illini on Saturday at 12:00 PM ET in an important Big Ten contest. The Buckeyes have spent time both in and out of the Top 25, but can cement their standing with a win.

The Buckeyes are on a bit of a roll as they’ve won two in a row – including a win over No. 15 Rutgers and then topping Northwestern. The Buckeyes are 10-3 on the year and the Fighting Illini are 9-4, but the latter is still ranked higher.

6:00 PM PACIFIC: WIZARDS GAME POSTPONED AMID COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

The NBA has been hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic over the last couple of weeks and the latest team to be bitten by the bug is the Washington Wizards. As a result, their game tonight with the Detroit Pistons will be postponed.

A Friday afternoon report indicated that several members of the Wizards have tested positive. While the team was going through regular protocols and testing, six different players tested positive. They’ll now be out for a period of time as they heal up.

3:31 PM PACIFIC: NFL DIVISIONAL ROUND HIGHEST MARGIN OF VICTORY SET AT 19.5

The 2020 NFL playoffs have reached the divisional round. That means we’ll get two games on Saturday and two on Sunday. While the oddsmakers are mostly expecting close contests, a line has been set on the highest margin of victory, which is 19.5.

The biggest favorite on the board is the Kansas City Chiefs, who are laying 10 against the Cleveland Browns. Will they be able to blow out the Browns? Also, the Green Bay Packers are laying about a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams. Can they run up the score?

12:20 PM PACIFIC: LAWRENCE FAVORED TO BE TOP PICK IN 2021 NFL DRAFT

The 2021 college football season has come to a close, which means now we’ll head towards the combine and then the NFL Draft. For the last couple of years, the odds-on favorite to be the first pick in the draft (when he was eligible) was Trevor Lawrence. Will that play out as expected?

Lawrence is a massive favorite to be the top pick at -5000. The Jacksonville Jaguars own that pick. What adds a bit of intrigue is that they’ve hired former Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer, so maybe he opts for Justin Fields instead? Fields is at +1200.

There are a couple of late games in the NHL tonight (or regular starts for those on the West Coast) with the Anaheim Ducks visiting the Vegas Golden Knights and the Minnesota Wild visiting the Los Angeles Kings – both at 10:00 PM ET.

The Wild opened as a -120 favorite in this spot but thel ine has been slowly creeping up as we approach puck drop. They’re now a -135 favorite. These were two of the worst teams in the West last season, so we’ll see what’s changed as they start their seasons.

3:30 PM PACIFIC: HOUSTON MOVES ON POST-HARDEN IN SAN ANTONIO

The Houston Rockets get the post-James Harden era started on Thursday night when they visit the San Antonio Spurs. The Rockets have made headlines this week as they shipped off Harden to the Brooklyn Nets.

The cupboard is not bare for Houston, though, as they got back Victor Oladipo. However, the question for tonight’s game is whether or not he’ll suit up in time. The Spurs are a 6.5-point favorite for this Texas showdown.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the UFC but they’re back in action on Saturday night. This fight night will be the first event ever shown on ABC, so it’ll be interesting to see what kind of response they get on national television.

The card will be headlined by ‘Blessed’ Max Holloway and Calvin Kattar. Holloway is still one of the best in the sport but he’s lost three of his last four fights. The oddsmakers aren’t deterred, though, as he is favored to win this bout.

James Harden wanted out of Houston and he finally got his wish. Harden has been shipped off to the Brooklyn Nets, which means he’s joining a stacked roster that includes Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving (when he decides to play).

The Nets had to give up some important roleplayers like Taurean Prince, Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert. However, they now have a big three and their odds to win the title have improved. They’re now at 3/1, which trails only the Los Angeles Lakers.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Conor McGregor in the Octagon but he’ll be back in action at UFC 257. He’ll be taking on Dustin Poirier in a matchup where the oddsmakers expect McGregor to win.

McGregor has only fought two times since November of 2016, losing to Khabib Nurmagomedov in 2018 and the beating Donald Cerrone with a first-round knockout in January of 2020. Poirer also lost to Khabib but other than that, has won five of his last six fights.

3:44 PM PACIFIC: WILL BUCKS FLATTEN PISTONS TONIGHT?

The Milwaukee Bucks are the biggest favorite on the board on Wednesday night as they’re about to square off with the worst team in the Eastern Conference. While the Bucks are 7-4, the Detroit Pistons are just 2-8 on the year.

The Pistons are getting some incredible efforts from Jerami Grant, who is averaging 25.1 points per game this season. He can’t do it on his own, though, as the Bucks are a fully-loaded team. The Bucks are a 10.5-point favorite tonight.

All of the teams will only play divisional foes this year, so there are aren’t any inter-conference games. Also, the only teams that will qualify for the playoffs are the top four teams in each division. The games get going tonight.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have struggled of late, losing two in a row to drop to 5-6 on the season. They’re in danger of losing again on Tuesday night when they host the Utah Jazz because most of their regulars will not be in the lineup.

The Cavs will be without Darius Garland and Collin Sexton, who are two of the team’s three leading scorers. As for the other – Andre Drummond – he is questionable. The team was already without Kevin Love as well, so they will be very shorthanded against the Jazz.

While Johnson is on the board at +900, Jon Rahm is second in line with odds of +1200. Rory McIlroy is right there with him with those same odds while Justin Thomas is next at +1400. Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau are the only other golfers inside of 20/1 and both are at +1600.

The Yankees became the favorite to win it all last offseason once they signed Gerrit Cole. Of course, the 2020 season was mostly derailed/altered by the COVID-19 pandemic but if 2021 goes off without a hitch, the Yankees will field a star-studded roster. Meanwhile, in the National League, it’s the Los Angeles Dodgers who are favored to win it at +200. They’re the defending World Series champs.

The Browns will be without head coach Kevin Stefanski as he deals with COVID-19. They are also missing Denzel Ward in their secondary. The Browns haven’t won a playoff game since 1995, so they will have a long way to go to finally get over that hump.

Michigan State has been a bit up-and-down this season as they are 8-3 but are just 2-3 in their last five games. Their losses have mostly been to quality teams, though. Purdue is just 7-5 and has lost three of four. However, those three losses were all to teams in the Top 25.

The Denver Nuggets will square off with the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight a Northwest Division showdown. Surprisingly, these two teams are tied for the worst record in the Western Conference as they’re both sitting at 2-4.

The Timberwolves started the year quite positively, winning their first two contests. However, they have since lost four in a row and are trying to make do with Karl-Anthony Towns out of the lineup. They’re an 11-point dog tonight.

3:31 PM PACIFIC: STEFANSKI, BITONIO OUT FOR WILD CARD WEEKEND

The Cleveland Browns suffered a big blow on Tuesday morning when it was announced that head coach Kevin Stefanski and offensive lineman Joel Bitonio will miss this week’s playoff game due to COVID-19. Stefanski was seen giving Bitonio the game ball after last Sunday’s win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The general thinking right now is that the Browns might be subject to more COVID-19 cases. Stefanski stood in the middle of the locker room, speaking to everyone on the team, so there is concern. For now, the Browns are a six-point underdog at Pittsburgh.

Two Alabama players are on the list as you can bet on wideout DeVonta Smith, who is favored, quarterback Mac Jones. Running back Najee Harris was in the running for a little bit but is not considered a contender anymore. Also available is Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence and Florida’s Kyle Trask.

Sunday Night Football will have playoff implications as the Washington Football Team can claim a playoff spot – if they earn a win. Standing in front of them is a Philadelphia Eagles side that has been rejuvenated from the switch at quarterback to rookie Jalen Hurts.

Washington has had some injury concerns throughout the week but it looks like starting quarterback Alex Smith is good to go. That’s why we’ve seen such a big shift in the betting odds throughout the week as they closed as nearly a touchdown favorite.

The Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals will meet on Sunday afternoon in a matchup that means much more than just an NFC West rivalry. The winner of this game will get a playoff berth while the loser goes home.

9:22 AM PACIFIC: COWBOYS, GIANTS BATTLE FOR PLAYOFF BERTH

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants are set to square off on Sunday at 1:00 PM ET. What’s interesting is that both teams can still make the playoffs or end up with an awesome draft pick. For the Giants, they can either host a playoff game or end up with the No. 3 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft – if they get some help.

The Cowboys enter Sunday’s affair on a roll as they’ve won three in a row. Meanwhile, the Giants have been a fading commodity over the last month as they’ve dropped three in a row. We’ll find out if those trends continue tomorrow.

9:38 PM PACIFIC: YANKEES FAVORED TO WIN AMERICAN LEAGUE

Although the 2020 Major League Baseball offseason hasn’t fully gotten underway, we’ve already got an early peak at the 2021 World Series odds. To no one’s surprise, it’s the New York Yankees who are favored to win it all.

The Yankees became the favorite to win it all last offseason once they signed Gerrit Cole. Of course, the 2020 season was mostly derailed/altered by the COVID-19 pandemic but if 2021 goes off without a hitch, the Yankees will field a star-studded roster. Meanwhile, in the National League, it’s the Los Angeles Dodgers who are favored to win it at +200. They’re the defending World Series champs.

One of the last games of the evening will be an Arizona-Washington State showdown, which will get going at 10:30 PM ET. Arizona enters the game as an eight-point favorite with the total for this game sitting at 136.5.

While neither of these teams are ranked in the Top 25, they might not be far from making the cut. Arizona is 8-1 on the season with their only loss being a three-point shortcoming to Stanford. Meanwhile, Washington State is a perfect 8-0 on the season.

It’s been a bizarre bowl season to say the least. Normally, the Fiesta Bowl is a game of huge significance. However, this year, the bowl has a bit of a muted feeling as the No. 25 Oregon Ducks will take on No. 17 Iowa State Cyclones.

Oregon is just 4-3 on the season and finished the year having lost two of their final three games. Normally, the Ducks wouldn’t qualify for the Fiesta Bowl with three losses. However, we’ll see if they can challenge or surprise the Cyclones, who lost in the Big 12 Championship Game to Oklahoma.

Garcia is a -333 favorite in this spot, so the oddsmakers are expecting him to advance. However, he isn’t exactly a massive chalk, so he could get a test from Campbell. The fight goes early afternoon, so make sure you don’t miss it.

The Portland Trail Blazers and Golden State Warriors will tip off in the final game of the night in the NBA. Both teams have been a bit of a disappointment to start the 2020-21 season, although its’ still very early in the year.

the Trail Blazers are currently 2-2 but they started the year with a pair of big wins and then have flopped in their last two contests. Meanwhile, the Warriors have been the opposite as they started 0-2 but have won their last two to get things evened up at 2-2. The Trail Blazers are a 3.5-point road favorite.

The Buckeyes had a bizarre season with several games canceled. They also struggled with some teams like Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship and Indiana earlier. The thinking might be that they won’t matchup well against a team like Clemson but we’ll have to watch to find out.
