BetAnySports Weekend Betting Preview - Jan. 27-29

Sports bettors will have to endure their first weekend without football in almost five months unless you want to bet on Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl, but there is plenty of other betting action on the board at BetAnySports over the next few days. College basketball moves to the top of the list with a couple of marquee matchups including an inter-conference showdown between two of the top teams in the nation.

Action in the NHL dies down with their All-Star break, but there is still plenty of betting action in the NBA. Horse bettors will have a chance to wager on the richest prize purse in the history of the sport with the inaugural running of the $12 million Pegasus World Cup Invitational at Gulfstream Park this Saturday with California Chrome and Arrogate leading the 12-horse field.

There is wall-to-wall action on Saturday’s college hoops schedule, but the top showdown on the slate sends the No. 2 Kansas Jayhawks on the road to square off against the No. 4 Kentucky Wildcats in a huge mid-season test for both of these national powers. Tip off for this Big 12/SEC clash is set for 6:15 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on ESPN.

The Jayhawks just suffered their first straight-up loss since mid-November in Tuesday’s 85-69 setback against West Virginia as three-point road underdogs. They are now a costly 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 games. Kentucky’s recent seven-game SU winning streak came to a stunning end on Tuesday in an 82-80 loss to Tennessee as a 10.5-point road favorite with BetAnySports. The Wildcats have now failed to cover in four of their last five contests.

One of the top matchups in the NBA on Sunday’s betting board at BetAnySports sends Oklahoma City on the road to face Cleveland. This inter-conference clash is set to get underway at 3:30 p.m. on ABC. The Thunder are holding down the sixth spot in the Western Conference at 27-19 heading into Thursday night’s home game against Dallas as seven-point favorites with the total set at 201.5. They are an even 3-3 both SU and ATS in their last six games. Cleveland still has the best record in the East at 30-14, but it is currently mired in its worst slump of the season with a three-game losing streak (SU and ATS). The Cavaliers are just 2-6 SU in their last eight games and they have failed to cover in 10 of their last 12 outings.
