NBA – (501) GOLDEN STATE at (502) CLEVELAND 7:05 ET CSBA, FSOH
As compared to some totals tumbling, this one is pretty simple to comprehend. This matchup has seen the number fall 4-points to 202, with the uncertain status of Stephen Curry with a twisted ankle and Kyrie Irving being rumored as questionable. If either or both returns to “probable” status, watch the total rise back towards where it began. S-W Take – Lean with Under in any scenario

CBB – (511) N.C.STATE at (512) VIRGINIA 7:00 ET ESPN2
With contests versus Miami-Fl. and Duke up next, after ending their 13-game losing streak to North Carolina, basketball bettors smell the aroma of a trap game for N.C. State. The Wolfpack was particularly sharp for the first 30 minutes before letting the Tar Heels shoot their back into the game. Playing defensive-minded Virginia is like a trip to the dentist, painful to think about and you hope to come away unscathed. The Cavaliers slow opponents as evidenced by the 51.1 PPG they allow on 36.8 percent shooting. Among N.C. State four losses, two came when they failed to score 60 points, which is another reason why they have gone from +2.5 to +4 at Charlottesville. The Wahoos are also 12-1 and 9-1 ATS on their home floor this season. S-W Take – Lean Virginia
CBB – (519) NORTHERN IOWA at (520) EVANSVILLE 8:00 ET
Sometimes, it’s just right there in front of you. In this Missouri Valley confrontation, Evansville went from a Pick to -2 because of convincing rationale. The Purple Aces are 10-5 and 9-5-1 ATS at the Ford Center against Northern Iowa. Evansville is adaptable offensively and is 17-5 ATS versus defensive teams conceding 64 or fewer points a game. The Panthers are 2-8 and 3-6-1 ATS on the road this year and off their excruciating single digit defeat at Indiana State, UNI is 7-21 ATS away after a conference setback. S-W Take – Evansville covers
CBB – (529) NEVADA at (530) UNLV 10:00 ET CBSSN
It is a braggin’ rights battle in the Silver State with these two rivals colliding. Nevada joined the Mountain West Conference this school year and has found this quality league not easy sledding with a 2-3 start. UNLV is only one game better in conference action, having lost a pair at a couple of the tougher outposts, but came into this encounter as a decided 15-point home favorite. The Runnin’ Rebels have not seen the production they expected from forward Mike Moser, who continues to labor since returning from a dislocated elbow. With this rivalry very intense, basketball bettors have lowered UNLV to 13.5, backed with knowledge the Rebels are 2-8 ATS this season after a double digit win like they had over Wyoming. S-W Take – Lean with Nevada

NHL – (3) PHILADELPHIA at (4) N.Y. RANGERS 7:05 ET CSP, MSG
After a sputtering 0-2 start, the Rangers have won two of three and are in a home revenge spot this evening. Philadelphia also began miserably at 0-3 and just as it appeared they might be righting the ship with a couple of wins, they were humbled by Tampa Bay 5-1. Hockey bettors are of the opinion the Blueshirts will be in better form and have raised them from -151 to -165 on the money line. Because of the different schedule in this shortened regular season, this will not happen a great deal, but New York is 16-4 when playing with two days off. S-W Take – New York wins
