NBA: Take Bucks (-16.5) vs. Knicks

We don't usually like laying this many points in the NBA, but the Bucks brand of basketball paired with the struggling Knicks makes for a perfect opportunity. Milwaukee has dominated this series recently, including 19 point and 44 point victories already this season. The Bucks are fresh off a four game road trip and have had almost 3 full days of rest, where the Knicks are hitting the road for just one game, then turning around and going back to NY. If this plays out like an average game for these two teams, it's a 22 point victory for Milwaukee. Lay the big number with confidence. 

College Basketball: Take LSU (-6) vs. Texas A&M

Home teams tend to control the pace of play in college hoops, but that's not been the case when LSU is on the road. Despite a 2-3 road record (both non-conference), the Tigers are averaging 80.4 points per game as the visitor. A&M no doubt has a strong defense, but even given a strong defensive performance we don't think they'll be able to keep up with LSU's tempo.
