1. New York Knicks at Brooklyn Nets (Tuesday, 7:00pm ET)

The Nets won the first round against the Knicks this season, getting a 96-89 overtime victory as a 1-point underdog on the NBA betting lines at Bovada when those teams met at the Barclays Center on November 26; Deron Williams scored 16 points to go along with his 14 assists for the Nets in that win, while Carmelo Anthony scored 35 points for the Knicks. Overall the Knicks are 6-4 SU and 5-5 ATS over their 10 most recent games vs. the Nets.

2. San Antonio Spurs at Utah Jazz (Wednesday, 10:30pm ET)

The Spurs will be trying to run their winning streak against the Jazz to six games on Wednesday night as those Western clubs hit the hardwood in Utah. San Antonio knocked off Utah by a score of 110-100 as a 7.5-point home favorite in their first meeting of the season on November 3, making them 9-1 SU and 6-3-1 ATS in their past 10 matchups. The UNDER had paid out in five straight Spurs/Jazz games until that OVER result in November.

3. Florida Gators at Arizona Wildcats (Saturday, 10:00pm ET)

With both teams sitting at 7-0 heading into the week, the Florida Gators and the Arizona Wildcats will return to the floor on Saturday night with a college hoops betting matchup at the McKale Center in Tucson; Arizona is 5-1 ATS so far this season, with Florida at 4-1 ATS. Those two schools also met last December, with Florida winning 78-72 as a 12-point home favorite on the betting lines at Bovada. That combined score turned into an OVER result.

4. New York Giants at Atlanta Falcons (Sunday, 1:00pm ET)

Eli Manning and the New York Giants bounced Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons from the playoffs last season, so the Falcons will get a chance for some revenge on Sunday afternoon as those NFC contenders take the field at the Georgia Dome. The Giants topped the Falcons 24-2 at home in the Wild Card round of last year's playoffs en route to their Super Bowl victory, easily covering the 2.5-point spread posted at Bovada for the game.

5. Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (Sunday, 1:00pm ET)

The Indianapolis Colts play two of their final three games of the season against the division-leading Houston Texans, starting on Sunday afternoon at Reliant Stadium. The Colts and Texans split their two meetings last season both SU and ATS, with Houston winning 34-7 at home in September and Indianapolis winning 19-16 at home in December. Each of the last three games between the teams have been UNDER results on the totals.
